There have been three major planetary retrogrades this week that are important in the scheme of how to deal with the next few months. Retrograde planets are always about reviewing how to solve issues regarding what those planets represent in our life. Often it's a review of the past and how to make important changes. When the planet turns direct we can implement those changes after careful review, consideration, revaluation and reeducation.
Saturn turned retrograde on May 11. This planet rules the structures of daily life and concerns itself with career, authority, responsibilities, rules and regulations. Through September 29 we have to review all the structures in our life and make slow adjustments and changes to everything that has supported our earthly existence in terms of material achievement and security. Old structures need to be revised; some torn down and others built up. That which is working for you will need to be tweaked while that which is not working may need to be totally scrapped in order to lay a new foundation. Traditions are changing. What is ossified will break. There is an awareness of that which is broken in life so the retrograde is a critical self analysis of repairing the cracks and putting in some hard work and effort. Take an adult responsibility about the difficult changes staring you in the face.
Venus turned retrograde on May 13. This is a careful review and consideration on how you'll want to be socializing with others. Venus is the law of attraction, partnership, relationships, love, affection, money, values and talent. It's time to rethink and reevaluate how you will approach new ways of social interaction. This retrograde lasts through June 25. It's important to revise your thinking on all these subjects and take a more logical approach since the sign of the retrograde is in Gemini. This is about reeducating yourself on new ways to relate and new ways to make money. How up to date are you in using social media and digital technology? This is an important two months to learn new skills and update all computer, phones and technological gadgets at your disposal. Learn how to attend a Zoom meeting and become smarter on how to re-establish social contacts at a distance. Because everything is starting to open up this is a slow reconsideration of how to make physical contact with others and reengaging in the pleasure principle. Everyone is on a different schedule. Some may distance themselves more while others will want to go back to an old way of socializing. Everyone should re-evaluate their finances and take steps to insure future security as best as possible. It's a time to re-educate yourself on many matters but especially issues of love, money and pleasure. Close personal and business relationships will either bloom and blossom or come to a realization that they must end. Those decisions will be made at the end of June and into July.
Jupiter turned retrograde on May 14. This is about a reassessment of your philosophies and belief systems. Jupiter is the planet of growth, optimism, enthusiasm, luck, outreach and confidence. The internal transit of this planet says your philosophies need a reboot. It's important to reconsider your religious and spiritual beliefs for guidance to help you through hard times. This is an inner quest and adventure into restructuring your heart and inner faith. Jupiter brings abundance and refills the horn of Plenty. Where and how can you redefine the meaning of abundance once again, even in times of adversity. It’s time to look for new meaning and explanations to formulate into concrete principles that can be applied to the practical side of life. Jupiter provides the confidence to rebuild your life in Capricorn’. Saturn may be tearing down structures but Jupiter will introduce new guidance and paths to rebuild the walls and structures of your life. What new possibilities and paths are there? Jupiter says if you put some effort into rebuilding your life there will be some serendipity when you least expect it. There is a new purpose and there is an area in life where that purpose will be revealed in more benevolent and optimistic ways. This planet turns direct on September 13.
It's important by the fall to be ready to implement all your plans for a new life that is unfolding. Saturn wants you to be cautious and Jupiter wants you to take some risks. Life is a balancing act of constriction and expansion.
