Yearly stargaze: retrograde Jupiter in 2024 and what it will bring to your zodiac sign

Jupiter in the chart is a social planet that influences a person’s position in society and reflects his attitude towards the environment. Its retrograde indicates an obsession with the idea of ​​recognition. In 2024, the retrograde Jupiter period will begin in the fall on October 9th and will last about 4 months.

Watching the movement of planets across the sky from Earth, you can see how a planet, moving forward through the constellation, at some point stops and begins to move back – it becomes retrograde. In reality, the reverse movement does not occur. This is an illusion for earthlings, arising due to differences in the periods of revolution of the planets around the Sun. However, astrologers consider this nuance important and always pay attention to which planet is retrograde.
