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 Pisces 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.

On May 16, 2023, Jupiter moves into Taurus, where it remains until May 25, 2024. Jupiter, often referred to as the planet of fortune, has the role of swiftly expanding various aspects of life. The reason it’s called the planet of happiness is because Jupiter has the power to enhance things like wealth, emotions, and circumstances, leading people to happiness. Jupiter stays in a single zodiac sign for about a year, bestowing upon people the ‘luck of expansion’ specific to that sign. It’s this very planet that continues its journey, bringing a change in fortune to us every year.
So, what luck and expansion will this expansive planet bring to you, Pisces, from May 16, 2023, for a year? It can expand your ‘connections’. Throughout this year, you will encounter various people, information, and events. These meetings will catalyze even more connections. Indeed, you’ll experience many new interactions, be it professionally or in your personal relationships. While love may arise from these interactions, there’s a stronger tendency for broader, more diverse connections during this period. You stand at the heart of this whirlwind of interactions, with words flying around you, creating new bonds and relationships.
This period can also be seen as a time when your words gain potency. Your voice becomes more resonant, reaching far and deep into people’s hearts. Ideas or proposals you put forth may even reach individuals in high positions. In the workplace, your projects will find smoother approval, and in romance, your feelings will resonate more with others.
