What you need to know about 5 planets in Retrograde.
There I said it! To best assist you, here is my intuitive information to help you navigate the energy. Five planets are retrograde - Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto – for the first time in ten years. Five retrograde planets is a rare event which brings a lot of information along with it. It may feel like life has slowed down and you are living in a different dimension with uncertainty (or maybe that’s just me). This energy brings time of “RE” re-build, re-do, re-think, re-create – it is time to RE-VIEW your life in all areas such as work, relationships, your inner self, and finances. Not to bring a negative, but with this energy we may witness actions of accidents and violence in your surroundings and throughout the world. With this information you can make sure your personal world is aligned. If I ever had to express “caution” with all you do, I express it now until after May 22 when two planets will go direct, and then offer an ease. I have broken down each planet and what areas they effect.
MERCURY APRIL 28-MAY 22
It may feel like it is more but each year Mercury only goes retrograde three times and lasts for approx. three weeks. This is the second cycle. This is time to look at your life and what direction you want to take it. This cycle is time to heal old wounds and to heal our life of what still lingers. Old friends may reenter you life to settle any karma and allow you each to move on. Time to rest, recoup, and be under the radar to process what is at hand in your life. During this time do not start anything new, ponder on it, and gather information
* Mercury defines your thinking process and metal facilities, intellect and intelligence, communication, ability to gather focus and perception, speaking and writing, contracts and agreements, siblings, travel, your work and working environment.
MARS – APRIL 18-JUNE 29
Time to slow down. You may feel like you’re in quick sand but its for the best. If you press in and rush you can disrupt your life with a simple accident that makes you slow down. Look at what is making you distracted and re-align your priorities. This time is to align with those around you so your connections can deepen.
*Mars defines your physical energy and actions, sense of adventure, aggressive and assertive behavior, confidence, passion and zeal, anger, violence, impatience and hastiness. It shows your desire nature, sexual urges, and physical energy.
JUPITER – JANUARY 7 – MAY 9
Expansion and growth slows when Jupiter goes retrograde. External energies make you look at your “self” to see where you are putting your energies. When Jupiter goes retrograde certain things that you may have been clinging onto will be removed and you need to continue your journey without them. This can be jobs, people, animals etc. All is for your higher good.
*Jupiter defines your understanding of broader concepts, growth, advancement, prosperity, joy, faith, and generosity. It shows increase and expansion on a personal or material level, and your capacity to see the big picture.
SATURN –MARCH 25 – AUGUEST 13
Saturn retrograde brings unwanted delays, and hindrances. All you do takes more effort and hard work on your part. Life feels as if it is simply delayed. Re-evaluate your plans and build up physical and mental strength for it. Saturn retrograde helps you come up with new plans that would be productive once it goes direct.
*Saturn defines your ambition and goals, career, fears and concerns, obstacles to over come, and limitations. It shows responsibilities, obligations and recognition earned.
PLUTO – APRIL 18 – SEPTEMBER 26
When Pluto goes retrograde your search takes you deep into your inner self, for truth and peace. Your compassionate nature emerges and you seek knowledge, in the Tarot cards. This would be the Hierophant searching for what cleanses your soul. You may feel empty with in but stay true to your self.
*Pluto defines regenerative process, shedding and renewal, death and rebirth of anything, sexual tendencies, aggressiveness, extreme behavior, power and control issues and explosive and unstable actions. It is your sense of power and influence. It shows resilience, renewal, and resurrection.
Note: remember to ponder on all your words and actions before executing them for best results.
