There is danger of misuse of faculties which may drive oneself into dangerous paths and ultimate self-destruction. You should think twice before doing anything during this period. Accidents are likely to be more common now; so abundant caution should be exercised if you happen to be driving vehicles during this period of Jupiter retrograde (which extends for quite some time in the near future). Children born under such retrograde Jupiter (especially with this degree significance) should be taught the importance of self-discipline and orderly though processes because otherwise, they may lose their way due to the innate conflicts of their nature. On the one hand, they will be too straight-forward and have great sense of conviction; on the other hand, they may lack the drive to assert themselves in the face of opposing circumstances, and may prefer to take the line of least resistance. It is important to train these children in practical tasks and in the technique of gentle assertion which will help them to be successful adults in the future.
