Retrograde Jupiter in Vedic Astrology

Jupiter (Guru) i.e. the universal and omnipresent Teacher. Jupiter retrograde usually never knows when to stop giving advice. They can be very knowledgeable yet they do not know how to use this knowledge in the right way. They can also mistrust their own wisdom. On a positive level they can look at issues with a very different viewpoint. They will also give advice that is unconventional and different. Jupiter’s Karakatvas i.e knowledge, children, spiritualism, law & order etc get affected during Jupiter retrogression and more so for a person with the Jupiter being retrograde in natal chart. All other combinations in the chart have a very important role.

Effects of Retrograde Jupiter in a Natal chart

The classics say that if Jupiter is retrograde, it will definitely give children despite what else is promised otherwise in the chart. This aspect needs to be researched further. Jupiter as a Karaka of husbands in a female chart will give a husband who is different. On an extreme negative level, they can bring twisted thinking into the relationship. Jupiter rules the Aakash element. Aakash deals with the knowledge, wisdom, our ability to purify, to repel the negative forces. Jupiter being retrograde weakens the ability to use this tatva. Vishuddhi chakra (The innate ability to remove negatives) will become blocked and this make us feel unprotected and make some wrong choices. So we do not know how to stop the negatives from polluting our life.

When this planet of growth and expansion is in retrogression, a lot many projects that were due for expansion and launch may get delayed, or stop altogether. This is the time when a person needs to think about his / her own inner resources, and use that knowledge to get the work done. Most probably, the person might come up with the conclusion that the stopped work was actually not necessary or could have done in a different way, and there are other better resources available. This is the ideal time for us to `expand` within ourselves.


Such persons often get success in other people’s failures. They have the unique ability to succeed in projects that were abandoned by others. Such people revive sick companies and uncover hidden assets. In order to achieve their mental goal they prefer to bargain.

When Jupiter is retrograde in the natal chart, either it makes the person too fickle or vain (if badly placed), or it gives unusual heights of knowledge and wisdom to the native.

A person with retrograde Jupiter in his/her natal chart might have any or all of the attributes depending on the other combinations of the chart

1)Has doubts about what one deserves or is worth.
2)Finds it easy to settle for less.
3)Feels superior in some way from within.
4)Abundance is felt from within.
5)Looks inside for answers to religious questions.
6)Would be God Fearing and have a spiritual bent of mind and thinking.

Jupiter represents the principles of expansion with respect to knowledge, spiritualism, wisdom, opportunities, optimism, abundance, travel, higher education, teaching, religion and philosophy. Approximately four months a year, this planet slips into retrograde. When it does, one is likely to see its influence roll through one’s life and society. Plans have a tendency to implode. Jupiter retrograde influences us internally to look within to seek new meanings. One may find one can best use these opportunities to re-evaluate their life and reach new levels of awareness and understanding.

If Jupiter is retrograde in your natal chart, you have a very rich internal life. You actually make your own luck. Abundance is felt within as you search the world looking to discover truth and develop a broader philosophy of life and living. Speculations may not bring you all the external rewards you seek, but each time you take a chance, your adventures allow you to gain from a wide variety of experiences. You must remain open and honest with yourself in order to expand your spirituality and allow your inner voice to guide you.

PS: These virtues cannot and should not be applied verbatim to a chart and they should be taken as an additional input for the overall assessment, the same principle applies to all other posts as well.
