26811792Are you wondering why you have felt a little down and gloomy lately? Jupiter the planet of creativity and opportunities has been retrograde now since early October 2012. Jupiter influences us in so many ways. Most of the time, people who know little about astrology want to know where Jupiter is. They understand the importance of this benefic planet. Jupiter was the teacher to the Gods. His role was to teach spiritual wisdom. His energy is expansive and helps us to connect with our dharma. Jupiter being an expansive planet has a rather large domain. Here are some of the areas Jupiter has rulership over; religion, philosophy, law, spirituality, fortune, children, luck, happiness. Jupiter’s going direct on January 30, 2013 is great news! We will begin to feel more positive and optimistic. As with all retrogrades, we can feel more hopeful about moving forward with Jupiter’s blessings!
