Autumn Retrogrades shake up your world in a good way

The current retrograde planets offer an opportunity to re-evaluate what’s not working and practice discernment.

Retrogrades mean plenty of second chances.

It’ll all go smoother if you are willing to reconsider your prior commitments and promises. All of them. The ones you made to yourself, your partner, work, or art.

So many planets in retrograde though

Mercury-

Retrograde until October 1st. This is the one that makes us all nuts with delays in our travel, timelines and downloads. Why is it annoying? Because we typically have to do things twice. Even the stuff you thought you finished, may have to do it again.

Good thing is, it gives you time to make things better. Improvements are awesome. Especially if you can be patient about it. Also, the plans that didn’t work out before are totally worth revisiting. They may just work out perfectly now. Because you tried again.

Jupiter

Jupiter’s retrograding until November 23rd and bright and very visible in the night sky now. It’s all about expansion and your luck. This is also the ways you want to grow and spread your wings. What you’re trying to develop and get going. As you journey forward, you’ll need to be patient while leaning into your new life and reality

Saturn

Retrograde until October 22nd in Aquarius. It Messes with the status quo and how you relate to rebelliousness, as well as overcoming your weaknesses and fears..However it’s also about redefining all of this for humanity as a collective.

Progressive change, and use of technology in an innovative way. This is where far-out ideas can come in to the fold that could really help the world right now..and while it’s retrograding, we can get some inspiration from the past as well.

Neptune

Retrograding until January 20th in Pisces- in charge of spirituality, the dreamtime, and compassion. It’s what makes you high, and blurs the lines on reality. Extra effort will be needed to maintain your bearings when there’s too much of a ‘crowded’ vibe from other people. YOu may want to ‘escape’ in a destructive way…Creating time for self-reflection, psychic practices and mysticism all by yourself is a kind thing to do. More self care practices here.

Uranus

Uranus retrograde in Taurus through January of 2023. The last time it was in Taurus was during the Great Depression..Ehhhh. Anyway, It may be an abrupt, forceful and extreme change that it takes your mind, heart and life in an entirely new path.

Could be good, thrilling, wonderful or really disruptive and hard. This largely depends on your Natal chart and the choices you make. No matter what, it’ll help us all to free ourselves of our former methods of doing and thinking, creating great changes in our thinking and perspectives.

Pluto

Pluto is about unconscious functioning, power, strength and willpower. Retrograding until October 8th. It’s all happening in Capricorn which loves structure. Now might be a good time to revisit an old routine, ritual or habit that worked in the past..It could be the thing that’s effective again..at least for now.

You totally have the strength to face the ups and downs during these retrograde cycles.
