In every chart, opportunities of natives are earmarked with planets and its functions, whether direct or retrograde. In the case of retrogression, the attitude of the native will alter, which shall be observed differently in different bhavas. Retrograde Jupiter will make the native re-do his imperfect past life time, when the ‘self’ lacked development. JUPITER, the benefic planet, is synonymous with generosity, good judgement, authority, legal matters, religion and money as well. A retrograde Jupiter will fashion itself as a self-expansion of unfulfilled achievements of the past birth; opportunity lost is being re-done in the current life. For an individual, it is to re-enact and attain self-development. Thus retrograde Jupiter in a natal chart indicates that the native lacked self-growth in the past life and he is to complete the process in the current life. An entire lifetime was wasted and now the native has to transmute the energy of retrograde Jupiter for self-development. Effects of retrograde Jupiter in various houses of the natal chart
