Jupiter Retrograde Dec 2014 to April 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, November 7, 2014

Jupiter is currently transiting its exaltation sign of Cancer. It is currently in forward direction although the speed is coming down. Now, it is time for Jupiter to come to a halt and start moving back in the same sign. Jupiter becomes Retrograde on Tuesday, December 09, 2014 at approximately 02:00 hours. At this time, the Jupiter is at Cancer 28°5’. Jupiter becomes direct on Wednesday, April 08, 2015  at about 22:30 hours, when the degrees are Cancer 18°5’. The total duration of retrogression is close to 4 months.

Jupiter is exalted in Cancer. During retrogression, it will behave opposite of what it stands for. Jupiter denotes expansiveness and exuberance. Therefore, during this period, expansion will stop. However, since the placement of Jupiter is overall a good one, this will result in good opportunities coming out of this when the retrogression finally ends. This is a contrarian approach and in a sense would work like Viparita raja yoga. 

There are three parts to this problem –

One is relook at the transit of Jupiter through Karka and understanding how it affects persons with various signs from Mesha to Meena. Second is to look at the mundane astrology predictions and how does it affect day to day activities around us. Thirdly, I will talk about how this would affect a child born during this period. Lets look at them one by one.

Transit of Jupiter in Cancer & its Retrogression

This is the detailed article about Jupiter’s transit through Cancer that talks about its effect on various janma rashis. The results will be slightly modified from the original transit. If the overall transit is favourable, then it will remain favourable, just that the results will be delayed and muted.

S. No. Rashi/Lagna Nature Effect on Rashi during 2014 transit through Cancer & Retrogression
1 Aries Adverse 4th house transit. Emotional issues could become worse. Mother’s health could worsen and she will need to be taken care of. Jupiter is 9th and 12th lord in Aries rashi kundali and hence the overall transit is still good.
2 Taurus Adverse 3rd house transit. Obstacles could increase during this period. Jupiter is a malefic for Taurus rashi (8th and 11th house). Hence obstacles would be in the source of money
3 Gemini Favourable 2nd house transit. There would be discords in the family and there would be a brake in the source of money that is coming in
4 Cancer Favourable 1st house transit. Expenditures will increase.
5 Leo Adverse 12th house transit. Jupiter is 5th and 8th Lord and will behave like 8th lord. This could be adverse for comforts of the home. Will indicate unnecessary travel.
6. Virgo Favourable 11th house transit. A promotion/hike could be delayed. If you get a hike, it may not be as per your expectations
7. Libra Adverse 10th house transit. At the place of work, there would be competition nipping at your heals and a lack of recognition.
8. Scorpio Favourable 9th house transit. Demands from superiors will increase and the smoothness with which you closed deals and executed projects will be missing.
9. Sagittarius Adverse 8th house transit. Health problems, accidents.
10. Capricorn Favourable 7th house transit. Discord with wife & business shows gains and pleasures from wife, business partners etc.
11. Aquarius Adverse 6th house transit. Rise of enemies (competition) and worries. Health problems through the year.
12. Pisces Favourable 5th house transit. Delay in results of an overall excellent transit.

Jupiter in Mundane Astrology during this retrogression

There would be a sudden brake in overall economy, which will suddenly slow down. However, wait and watch and keep looking at the bargain deals. This is a time to employ a contrarian approach in the economy. This will affect the commodities/shares that are denoted by Jupiter, viz., Gold. New projects for expansion of the economy will not be launched at this time. It is further aspected by Ketu and hence profit taking will rule the market.

Retrograde Jupiter in a birth horoscope

When Jupiter is retrograde, the person has a habit of looking back at past achievements. This person may miss obvious opportunities at the first instance. If there are benefic influences in the chart or if Jupiter is well placed in the chart while being retrograde, these persons will miss an opportunity, regret it, but then go back at it right away. Consider the phrases “bargain hunting” and “veepareeta raj-yoga” that I used in the chart previously, these people will find success where others have failed.

    Hello there
    Looking towards the horoscope of Abhishek it looks that he is passing good time now and after 5 May 2015 it will be more worst. He will have to control his expenses otherwise he will put in very bad situation. He has to give governments exams and has to work according. Film industry is not for him. Just keep hobby of music and movies.
