What are the characteristics of Retrograde Jupiter?

Post by babu_01 » 13 Apr 2018

It's about a year since my Jupiter Mahadasha started, I have Retrograde Jupiter in my 8th house in sign of Leo. Out of curiosity, I searched about Retrograde Jupiter results. There seems to be many interpretations of this placement.

- Jupiter retrograde interrupts education, students fail in a class and stay in that class for another year.

- Jupiter retrograde doesn't make oneself believe in his own religion, culture.

- Delay in marriage, children and higher education

- It makes a person materialistic.

- It makes the person introspective.

- It gives results of the previous house.

- It becomes 3 times stronger.

- Sudden death of a close relative causing great sadness.

- Person should leave their motherland for betterment of life.

So which ones are true? And are there any other effects observed by this placement?

My DOB - 17-Jan-1992, 7:30 AM, Bhubaneswar - Odisha, Male (if it helps)

Thanks in advance.

I have retro Jupiter in 4th house (along with rahu)..following is my observation:

- Jupiter retrograde doesn't make oneself believe in his own religion, culture -> I do believe in my religion and culture but i don't follow it as much.
- It makes the person introspective - TRUE
- Person should leave their motherland for betterment of life - Happened to me.

Rest of them have not been applicable to me so far.

Retro state doesn't give all these. These all depend on Jupiter's house significations.
If signifies 3,8,12, then interrupts education, gives sadness
6,12 - delays marriage,
2,6,10,11, earthy signs and Venus - materialistic
3,9,12 links - forces native to leave home land
no links to 1,5,9 or Rahu links - doesn't believe in own religion

During retrograde planet periods, one has to do review, replace, revise, reread, repeat, re-plan, re-perform, recharge, reconsider, reevaluate, reexamine, recall, reconnect (many 're' words) on the areas signified by them.

Jupiter retro with good house significations bestows reexamination, revise, regrouping, reevaluation, restructuring abilities in education, training, religion, ritual, spiritual, ethical, and other signified fields/areas.

Retrograde Jupiter reduces the idealism normally pure Jupiter gives.

A few observations from a person having Jup[R] in Leo 9th House. Also my Lagna Lord (Sagittarius Asc.)

- Jupiter retrograde interrupts education, students fail in a class and stay in that class for another year:

I did fail and lose 1 year but I have two Master's degrees now.

- Jupiter retrograde doesn't make oneself believe in his own religion, culture:

Absolutely NOT! I believe in my religion and culture a lot. Its a different fact that sometimes I do not follow it but I firmly believe in it.

- Delay in marriage, children and higher education:

Marraige children can't say because not yet there (26 y old). Higher education delay - NO

- It makes a person materialistic:

Might be. I love the material but I am also pretty spiritual.

- It gives results of the previous house:

I don't have enough experience to comment on this but I hope not (given that previous is 8th H)

- It becomes 3 times stronger:

Agreed w.r.t the house characteristics. The strength just becomes an overkill for those characteristics and causes trouble to you due to that.

- Sudden death of a close relative causing great sadness:

Not experienced till now. Fingers crossed.

- Person should leave their motherland for betterment of life:

Disagree. I was more happy in my motherland than I am in the foreign.

Hope this helped.

Thanks,
chaigo

Jupiter{R} reduces the idealism which it signify. Jupiter{R} means the person do not follow the tradition. Usually it give success away from birth place. Delay in marriage is not observed. 24-11-1963, 2-33 a.m Mumbai. Married at the age of 21 years and three months.[ Jupiter is the 7L in 7H retrograde]

dear ADC ji, can we say that Jupiter or any natural beneficial Graha turns out to be malefic if it's in retrograde motion assuming that natural beneficial Graha is also a functional beneficial to that particular Ascendant?
Like for example, Mercury retrograde in Capricorn♑ or Ascendant?

Not malefic but certainly the idealism and respect for tradition is lacking.

I got Retrograde Jupiter in 8th Aquarius. Jupiter is the karka of marriage for women and its in dustana in enemy sign. So my marriage was delayed and was a disaster.( Other combinations also matter). I do believe in religion. But I question various religious practices. Its through karma we become close to God i believe. I am introspective and intuitive. Lastly am not successful and never been away from home.

Are there other factors in the chart that could have contributed to a bad marriage?
