Those Pesky Planets

Well its batten down the hatches at the moment on the planetary front.

We have four planets in retrograde at the moment and they are really turning the screws.

Mars entered retrograde on the 17th of April and is direct again on June 29th.

Mars is in Sagittarius which is a fire sign.  This will have a direct effect on your drive, your ability to focus on a chosen target, the vices of Sagittarius will be magnified. So watch out for over optimism, and jumping into things that you would normally avoid.

You will also experience a lack of courage on occasion and where you would normally speak up against something you don’t like you are more likely to accept it and just feel bad about it.

Mar’s Friend Saturn is also in retrograde at the moment and stays that way until the 13th of August.

This planet is the one that defines our limitations but also it signifies our structures, the things that make us feel safe.

The result of the retrograde is that you might start to look at old familiar ways of doing things and set routines or structures as to controlling or constrictive.  Things that used to make you feel safe will make you feel constrained.  Relationships will feel controlling and you will want to break out onto new paths, but with Mars being retro as well might not have the courage to do so.  This might well result in a feeling of frustration and illtemper.

Jupiter is retrograde until the 9th of May and is in its detriment of Virgo for extra added nastiness.

So Jupiter the planet of Joy is bogged down in the earthy sign of Virgo and is retrograde.

This means feelings of depression, growth stops abrubtly and you can find no joy in the things that in the past have given you joy.

Feelings of hopelessness and being stuck in a rut abide and you just feel that you are unhappy and goalless at the moment.

Last but not least by any means is Mercury. Mercury entered retrograde on April the 28th and will come out on May the 22nd

Mercury is in Taurus so expect a lot of earth based communication problems, feelings of jealousy, an inability to communicate from a solid basis.  Knowledge will be questioned, and an inability to compromise will be seen. 

So what can I do to avoid these things?

 

 

 

Well knowledge is power. You know what to expect so when it turns up its your job to say to yourself ok is this me or is it the astrological profile at the moment.  Should I make the decision to pack in a job that has given me security and joy for the last 10 years for a new opportunity or should I wait and make a decision at a better time.

Should I dump my partner of 30 years for a younger version? Is the jealousy I feel justified or is it an illusion?

Well-armed you should be able to come through relatively unscathed but watch out all the same.

I will be making offerings to the planets regularly and watching my tongue very carefully.

Remember our job is to control the planets not to let them control us.

 

Byd.
