Who has heard that we currently have 6 planets retrograde (Rx)? Who knew that twice in the past six weeks we had partial eclipses?! Anyone aware that we have Neptune and Pluto back in sextile aspect, meaning the opportunity for Yods (double inconjunct or Quincunx aspects) is now back?
Well I’m an astrologer – part time anyway – so it is my job to keep tabs on some of this stuff. 🙂
Actually at this precise moment, we have Mercury stationing direct on Sunday, Mars stationing direct at the end of August and then in early Sept Saturn slowly turns direct as well. Plus Jupiter just came out of Rx a few weeks ago – so it is slowly gaining steam. What does all this mean?
It means that you might be stuck behind several people at stop lights who just sit there when the light turns green – Mercury ruling traffic is basically standing still in the sky for the next 4 – 5 days – plus Mars rules steel and machinery (cars and trucks for that matter). I have had to honk at three people who did this in the last couple of days! (I live in a relatively educated and more enlightened in some ways city, so it is a little amiable tap of the horn; one thing I love about Charlottesville is that you don’t hear many horns blaring.) So when I say this tumultuous astrological season is wrapping up with a… I am looking for the “Blleeuurrr” sound which means it is tapering out, fizzing out, burning out, amounting to not much! With all these planets slowing down to turn direct (come out of Rx), things in our lives might be at a stand still for a few days or even a couple weeks (if not longer).
This summer has also seen (on August 3rd) a tight configuration involving Mars square Uranus by transit with the Moon also hopping on board (conjunct Uranus). Did anyone have or witness some bizarre irrationality that day? I sure did! Mars / Uranus is explosive enough but then throw the Moon in the mix and tempers might flare over petty little things. That was happening in the early Fixed signs – Taurus and Aquarius to be exact.
And the second eclipse happened early on August 11th – with a Yod to the Sun involved as well! Specifically, the Sun was in Leo along with Rx Mercury, and there was a (3 degree orb) Yod pointing at the Sun from Neptune and Pluto! Thankfully there didn’t seem to be too much chaos / bad news as a result (confusion from Rx Mercury, mixed with potent Sun / Pluto discord).
I am really looking forward to clearer skies! By late September we will be down to 3 planets Rx plus Chiron (and Pluto is direct October 1st). But then Venus does go Rx in October – be aware in new relationships (get second opinions about new people met under that influence) and try to be more flexible and patience in existing relationships as well. ❤
By late November things will really quiet down as far as Rx planets go. In fact, January and February will be surprisingly quiet (nothing much Rx!). Wow! Of course transits continue, progressions evolve, habits arise, life continues, cycles go through, waves arise. We can surf! Breathe and surf.
