Holding space for Pause is essential right now. We have 8 Retrogrades happening in the skies currently.
Our Full Moon in Aries on October 20th, 2021 will be nothing short of heated, liberating, rebellious, and full of action! Mercury has gone direct, still in the sign of Libra, as we are closing out Libra season. Venus is in the fire sign of Sagittarius, and Chiron, known as the Wounded Healer, is still Retrograde in the fire sign of Aries.
Nothing is standing in our way. Nothing is going to restrict us. It’s time for anyone and anything meaning harm to step aside because the warrior movement is going to make strides this week! Communication about love, passion, life goals, and purpose will take center stage. Aries is one of the most intense signs of the Zodiac, and his fires will be activating the shadows sides of the way we communicate about fairness, equality, and judgements because the Moon will be squaring off with Mercury.
After five long months in Retrograde, Saturn stations direct in the sign of Aquarius October 11th, 2021, and the energies it brings will feel like the burst of a tension rod, freeing us from a confinement and sluggish energy we have worked hard to emancipate ourselves from.
Saturn is the great wise elder of the Universe. It is like the strict father who expresses tough love in order to get a point across and flesh us to become better people. The lessons, hardships, and disciplines are nothing short of punishing sometimes, although that is not the point of the experience. The point is to help us become the absolute best versions of ourselves we can be, and rise into our divinity. It helps us overcome our own shortcomings, and reminds us that we must earn all the we are rewarded with. Blessings aren’t free. We must traverse our rites of passage and succeed at the tasks before us, if we’re going to be granted access to the wisdom and teachings waiting for us. Our currency of time is what is most precious. Saturn, a slow moving planet, takes its time to cycle through the cosmos and our Natal Charts, in order to fully express its energies in both shadow and light.
Despite all of the swirling energies of our current planetary retrogrades, among other forms of chaos in the world, Venus in Cancer holds us steady, to remind us what life is really all about; love, connection, and unity.
Intimate personal relationships are going to be placed at the forefront of priorities. Addressing vulnerabilities and allowing bonds of trust to form are going to be highlighted. Almost as if by the wave of a magic wand, the Universe is going to pull people out of your life who have proven dysfunctional for your highest good, and open the door to new companions, friends, colleagues and especially divine partners. Cravings of intimacy, touch, and confessions of love will draw us into a headspace of deciding where our relationships are going, and what we really need or expect of our partners.
