A little more on the current retrograde planets ....... Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron & Uranus 20th August
We may find ourselves taking a trip down memory lane or feeling like we need to revisit the past in some way before we can move ahead. This is all triggered at the moment and ongoing for a while with so many planets retrograde. Saturn and Jupiter will go direct in October, so quite an intense time before then for some of us depending on your natal chart. If you feel stuck and confused, use this time of introspection, to look for clues or guidance as to what may lay ahead. We need to look at the past before we can move forward, like brushing the cobwebs away.
Saturn retrograde helps us a look at where those restrictions may lie in our life. Uranus is the planet of innovation and awakening so as it stations and travels retrograde from the 20th August, it’s here to help us break free from past restrictions. Uranus in the fixed sign of Taurus, well known for being stubborn, will be challenged by Uranus, making it's presence felt to encourage and strengthen any lack of flexibility and steadfastness that is typical of fixed Taurus. It is a good combination to give stability and originality, especially reflecting on our past. Venus who rules Taurus and in the sign of Libra will be lending a hand to soften this aspect with balance and harmony. Virgo in Mercury could be acting a little harshly so a gentleness with ourselves in this trip down memory lane is required and Venus is there to help.
