For Taurus: The Gifts of Jupiter in Retrograde to You (Sep 4 – Dec 30, 2023)

On May 16, 2023, Jupiter moved to your sign, Taurus, and will remain in this sign until May 25, 2024. As the planet of expansion, Jupiter plays the role of broadening things swiftly. Often referred to as the planet of happiness, this is because Jupiter magnifies matters, money, and emotions, leading people to happiness. Jupiter stays in one sign for about a year, bringing “expansion of fortune” according to that sign to everyone. Thus, Jupiter is the planet that continues its journey, bringing us changing luck each year.

However, the fortune and expansion of this year won’t be on a straight path. That’s because at some point, Jupiter goes retrograde. This time, it will go retrograde from September 4 to December 30, 2023, approximately for 4 months.

Retrograde is a phenomenon where a planet appears to move backward (to be precise, from Earth, it appears to move in the opposite direction). In astrology, this retrograde movement holds deep significance. A period when a planet moves in a direction opposite to its usual path is seen as a time to adjust one’s current destiny. It can be likened to a “Destiny’s Stretch”. Just as stretching involves moving muscles or joints in a direction different from the usual to increase their range of motion, similarly, when planets move in the opposite direction, they stimulate our destiny, attempting to regain their original path.

Retrograde also implies a “return to the past”. It’s a period when you might re-encounter challenges that weren’t resolved in the past or meet people you were supposed to meet. It could essentially be called a “period of redoing good fortune”.

In the following sections, we will discuss:

① The luck and expansion that Jupiter brings to Taurus from May 16, 2023, over the year.

② The “Destiny’s Stretch” brought by the retrograde period from September 4 to December 30, 2023.

Retrograde is not something to fear, and it’s fundamentally positive. The sediments accumulated in the gears of fortune by the usual movement get shaken off by the stimulation of the retrograde. Please spend these 4 months with the image of your luck aligned with destiny being polished anew.
