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

On May 16, 2023, Jupiter moved to 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 Scorpio 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.

Jupiter is the planet responsible for expansion, broadening things rapidly. Often referred to as the star of happiness, this name comes from Jupiter’s ability to magnify aspects of life such as material wealth and emotions, leading people towards joy. Every year, Jupiter remains in one sign, granting that sign an aura of ‘expansive fortune’. It is this planet, Jupiter, that continues its journey, bringing us varying luck each year.

So, what kind of luck and expansion will this expansive star bring to Scorpio from May 16, 2023, for a year? To summarize, this approximately year-long period will be a time of increased encounters with important individuals for Scorpio. There are hints of coming across someone pivotal in life, a person you might call a ‘soulmate’. This is not just any casual acquaintance. During this period, there’s potential to meet someone who profoundly influences your entire life.

However, a word of caution is necessary here. While the term ‘soulmate’ is often used in the context of a destined lover, it’s not exclusive to romantic relationships. It could refer to a crucial business partner or even a lifelong friend. Importantly, a ‘soulmate’ isn’t always someone who feels comforting to you. They might be someone who helps you grow in diverse ways, transcending feelings of comfort, security, or even love.
