However, if Jupiter is associated with a natural malefic planet either by aspect or conjunction, the native is unsatisfied because of having a lack of comforts from conveyances in life.

  • what if jupiter is exalted in 4th house of cancer for aries ascendant but is also retrograde…how would be interpret it? jupiter 12 degree sits with ketu at 2 degree here in this case., and venus 1degree moon 17degree in 12 house of pisces. ascendant degree is 16 degrees. I recently dscovered the retrograde factor and now seems like the entire interpretations alters.

    • Hello respected reader

      Thank you for starting this valuable discussion as I also tried to understand retrograde planets in a deeper way in recent years. I have found that retrograde indicates that a considered person having it in their birth chart undertakes mistakes and mischievous paths which can eventually lead to the destination indicated by Cancer Jupiter in the 4th house.

      Classical scripture includes that retrograde planet turns around effects of exaltation to the opposite. Same way, retrograded planet in a fallen sign transforms weaknesses into strengths.
