A busy week awaits as two outer planets station retrograde. We saw Pluto station retrograde last week and this week Saturn follows on the 11th and then Jupiter on the 14th. As mentioned before, retrogrades do not imply chaos or the cosmos going off the rails. They simply illustrate a time when we should begin to look inward, rather than outward. Introspection, retrospection, right? So what do we see when we look inward? What has this current situation taught us? If we have been observant, it should be easy to see how the earth has responded. Do you see all the “re” words in there? That is what a retrograde period is all about. Since Saturn and Jupiter are outer planets, their spin backwards is longer than the inner planets. And with that longer, slower cycle comes depth. This is a time to ponder what we have learned over this period of time. What do we miss? What are we going to do differently going forward? Now that we have seen how much we humans have impacted the environment, does that prod us to approach our lives and the planet differently? These are the lessons that come from a reflective period if we chose to hear them. Where is that happening in your life? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Aside from Jupiter and Saturn stationing retrograde, which is no small matter, by the way, we also see Venus stationing retrograde on May 13th in Gemini. Venus is an inner planet and therefore moves much faster. It will remain in Gemini for the entire cycle. Gemini is an air sign and a lively one at that, filled with an active imagination and a strong desire to create and to think. With Venus in Gemini might we be looking at how we get this conversation started about our environment? Learning, mental stimulation, conversation, and curiosity are all strong Gemini traits. So as we head into this period of several retrogrades (and Neptune is not far behind) what do we delve into that helps us reconcile where we are and where we are going? Where will you feel it?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are faced with a few difficult choices regarding your next steps. The choices you make will linger for some time so you might be wisest to follow your hunches.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Mars and Neptune are moving through Pisces and you may be motivated to start anew. You may enjoy the dream but a practical approach will yield a greater outcome.
