When your chart-ruler goes retrograde
I pay a little more attention to astrology in real time these days, and as a Sadge rising, I see that this Jupiter retrograde is making me feel like I’m walking through mud and just kinda hate myself.
Any other sadge risings noticing this, or anyone else relate to feeling like someone snuffed out your candlelight as soon as your chart ruler goes retrograde?
On the flip side, this is a great time for shadow work and serious reflecting. I see how retrogrades really force this sort of growth on a person. But I kind of just want to be my normal cheerful self again
I wonder if these things have something to do with the current T square?
Gemini rising here. So yeah, like at least twice a year stop the ride I wanna get off.
I just look at the place in my chart the chaos is happening.
My natal mercury is also part of a t square w/ the moon & pluto. Mercury retrograde is always informative.
I have a Moon Jupiter conjunction in Pisces, when Jupiter is rx I feel less optimistic in general. Its probably a good time for inner work, meditation, etc. I always feel relief when it goes direct after a long spell. It'll be interesting for it to go direct in Pisces, with its friend Neptune again!
Yup. Sag Moon/Asc struggling here.
look at the house where Jupiter is retro. with a Sadge rising, 3rd or 4th house sounds about right. Houses 1 through 6 are considered "i" house. You work through these issues generally alone. If the retro is happening in the 4th house, that is a water house, so sluggish feeling sounds about right. That house is pretty deep, almost like deep roots of an old tree.
Sometimes retros are good for reflecting. And sometimes you just get forced to go back and clean up a mess or finish a project.
