Other Astrology Influences
There are 6 planets retrograde, causing disruptions and a need to slow down. Anytime a planet is retrograde there is an opportunity to revise, revisit, reflect and all the other “r” words. It’s an introspective time, helping you assess where you’re at now and determine if you need to adjust your course. You may need to review what has taken place over the past several months and determine what needs to change. Slow down and take inventory of where you’re at and where you’re going. It’s easy to get caught in habits and patterns that no longer serve you. Just because you’ve done it in the past doesn’t mean you need to continue. Be mindful about your future by aligning your actions with what you want most.
Mercury & Pluto – are making a Trine, providing support in getting to the bottom of things. With both planets retrograde there is a review of your mind and how your thinking (Mercury) and your personal power (Pluto). Mercury, in Virgo, wants to dive into the details so that it has a mental picutre of what’s going on. Pluto, in Capricorn, wants to discover the truth or bring truth to a situation. You may have clarity with this trine, helping you see things from a different perspective.
Mars & Mercury – are at a square. Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Virgo are activating your mind. Mars activates whatever sign it’s in. With it in Gemini, you may be highly social and communicative. Since Mars is about action, you may be reacting quickly to situations without thinking things through. Be present that what you are expressing is what you really want. There could be miscommuncations, which is also affected by Mercury retrograde. Mercury rules Gemini, and in Virgo it may be hashing out the details or creating strategies that involve communicating your ideas and inspiration.
