Jupiter Retrograde on Leo 13: An Old Sea Captain Rocking On His Porch
Jupiter is retrograde on Leo 13: AN OLD SEA CAPTAIN ROCKING ON THE PORCH OF HIS COTTAGE
– Jupiter goes direct in about two week’s time on this degree. We have Jupiter on the ‘taking time out to contemplate’ degree. This can be a time for writing one’s stories, for writing your memoirs. This can be a useful time to plan strategies and get things in a row, neatened up and tidied for the forward thrust that is coming in a few week’s time.
This Symbol shows the need for times of quiet reflection, to look back at past experiences, especially those times that may have seemed threatening or exhausting in some way. Take some time for a little solitude and contemplate the overall picture of your life. You may want to take time out to read, to go over past memories, indeed to write your memoirs. When back into the business of life you will be refreshed and have a better idea of how you fit in and what you want to achieve. Having said that, this Symbol can sometimes indicate wanting to retire and withdraw from life too much so that it interferes with the ability to make a living or feel like contributing to society.
Retreating to one’s inner self and reflecting. Quiet confidence in conquering life’s storms and come out wiser. Observing life from afar. Rocking chairs, cottages and verandahs.
The Caution: Ignoring what is possible now in favor of memories. Inability to get going. Being lazy and immobile. Being a lounge-lizard. Wanting others to look after you.
