Jupiter retrograde in Virgo from 11:32 IST on 6 February 2016 and continue in same way till 19:01 IST on 9 June 2017.
During this period, Jupiter transits on Chitra Nakshatra (owned by Mars) during 6 February 2017 (11:32 IST) – 15 April 2017 (07:29 IST) and then on Hasta Nakshatra (owned by Moon) until 09 June 2017.
Before Jupiter becomes retrograde it enters into retrograde zone and starts slowing down, which has already started.
Before it becomes stationary and starts moving into backward direction (Its relative speed with earth will be less, so it appears to be moving backwards), it keeps moving into forward direction with retarded speed.
Jupiter remains into stationary motion for some time before it appears to be moving back.
There will be noticeable changes in lives of those who have Mars and Moon as one of the ruling planet (either born on Monday or Tuesday, born in ascendants or moon signs of Aries, Cancer, Scorpio, born with moon in Rohini, Mrigasira, Hasta, Chitra, Sravana, Dhanishta nakshatras).
