The Season Of Retrogrades Has Begun
















(S hemisphere below)

These buffer seasons of Autumn and Spring are delicate transitional times, they viscerally connect us to the transitory nature of life. There is a great deal of beauty to be found here as well as the swell of change. In the north we are unfurling into Fall and in the south the first stirrings of spring are being felt. Adding to these feelings are the retrograde planetary roll call: Mercury Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune & Pluto are all in retrograde mode, which means that they are in a lower, slower and deeper gear.

Communication, expansive good fortune, rigorous self-discipline, freedom, dreams and deep purging are all working together in late 2022 to help us achieve the conditions for ongoing soul level evolution.

This Mercury retrograde in Libra began over the weekend and we won’t emerge into normal planetary speed until Friday, so allow yourself extra time and space and good humor for everything this week. This merc Ret will finish at the beginning of October so use the next few weeks to take a deep dive into relationship communication, art projects, martial arts, and/or financial planning. And practice just finding the still point at the center of each moment.

Monday September 12

The week begins under a feisty Aries Moon sitting with Chiron, as Mercury remains slow at his at station Rx degree, paving the way into the Mars Rx in Mercurys sign. Let’s blow through the pipes now and get sorted via this shorter rx which will show us where we need to clarify and attend to things that are shaky. It’s a good week to give some time to details and things that you have been ignoring. The Aries Moon is a rebirth, even when the Sun and Moon are both on the wane, so use the ignition any way that you need, and also keep a good sense of humor under the retrograde conditions. As soon as Mercury gets up to normal speed, things will be easier and clearer.

Tuesday September 13

Today the Taurus Moon activates the earth team: Sun and Venus in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus & Pluto in Cap. We are spirits having human experiences here on earth which means that first and foremost is the physical. We cannot bypass or transcend our bodies here. They are our sacred spaceship and need and deserve care love and attention on the regular. This astrology is very supportive of the physical and your physical reality.,

Wednesday September 14

Today the exalted Taurus Moon on the Nodes makes a square to Saturn, reactivating this ongoing theme of old vs new, top down control vs revolution. Are you awake and alive to your own needs for revolution? Where have you fallen asleep and become complacent and complicit in ways that go against your own soul? This is very activating Astro-weather.

Thursday September 15

Today the Taurus Moon crosses fixed star Algol and makes a trine to the Sun & Pluto. Don’t lose your head as Venus squares Mars in Mercury’s two signs, under a Mercury retrograde. Stay calm and grounded and take things slow, allowing for any miscommunications to be washed away rather than allowed to trigger you into reactions.

Friday September 16

The Moon shifts into mental Gemini and crosses Mars, playing with Mercury and Jupiter in air. Talk things out and enjoy some bird’s eye perspective to offset the full immersion of today’s Sun opposite Neptune. This comes but once a year and is currently in the axis of order and chaos. Things can feel a bit psychedelic and wonderlandlish in these conditions.

Saturday September 17

Structure thinking is the name of the game today as the Gemini Moon makes a square to the Virgo Sun and a trine with Saturn. Take the time to get grounded before beginning any projects as it will pay off in the long run.

Sunday September 18

We return to the womb of big feelings today as the Cancer Moon squares Jupiter giving us a big emotional kick. Let any tears that arise be expressed knowing that life works better when emotions are honored.
