Uranus goes retrograde on July 13 and will be for about six/seven months and revels in suddenness and delights in last minute plan changes....like complete reversals and shock effects. He is the head of the Dept of One Never Knows-meaning you will and can even surprise yourself with the things you say and do. You may like order in your life, however where personal freedom is concerned-rules are made to be broken regardless of the consequences. If you feel confined or in a rut, Uranus is the planet to set you free. He is similar to a computer wizard-involved in mass communication and is bold enough to help you seek a solution to a problem and see it in a whole new light. However, when he is retrograding-all this goes out the window and the complete opposite happens. Be prepared to feel in a rut, to have your personal freedom disappear and to feel caged in or to have a situation hang around for a while and you to give yourself a headache on how to make it go away, find a solution or make it right.
So if you're feeling stuck in a present circumstance, well, hope for a transit to happen so you won't be stuck for long-however 'temporary people' often enter your life or people whose only purpose is to jolt you out of whatever you were missing and appear to provide exactly what you were sorely missing.
Yep, it's that time
again where planet Mercury goes retrograde on July 14. What this means it that
it appears that the planet is moving backward. The good news is Mercury is only
retrograde until August 8th - only 25 days. So what does this
mean? Pretty much means to expect
the unexpected. This is a time where
Electronic Devices may not work
properly, may break, or may
malfunction. (Cell phones, cars,
machines, appliances, computers,
etc). Letter, bills, any
communication with people may seem
strained, delayed or misinterpreted.
Mercury is also a trickster and
you'll be amazed over some of the cleverly disguised errors that will
happen - like losing something in your car or it falls behind something,
and even bills, letters or orders can be sent to wrong addresses. People may be in tense moods and you
may find yourself desiring/wanting
more solitude. You may experience
problems/delays in travel or trips and with
meetings and appointments. This is a
time where communication and
schedules can be compromised. This
is not a good time to sign contracts
or make big purchases such as a car
or appliance, hence things tend to
break down or not function properly.
People from your past may resurface
and memories or past regrets may
come from out of nowhere to haunt
What to do during this time: Think about your past and how you feel about your current circumstances. Consider if you are happy in your current situation? If not, think of ways to change it. This is a time to rethink, reflect, research, revise and renew. (Keep the RE in mind for the next few weeks). In regards to relationships and partnership matters, our thinking is turned inward. Re-evaluating a partnership and communication style within that relationship is wonderful use of this reflection period.
What not to do during this time: Not a good time for big purchases such as a home, car or electronics. These types of things/items will generally encounter major problems. Don't sign important contracts or paperwork. Try not to get upset over set backs. Expect them so when they happen, you're prepared. Keep cell phone charged, keep a can of fix a flat in the trunk, and don't panic if you leave the directions/invitation with the address on it at home, etc.
Pluto is retrograde at this time until September 18th. Pluto is the Dept of Death, Destruction and Decay....disposing of situations that have gone past the point of no return and the only solution is to 'let go' of things, whether it be a relationship, career, dream. Pluto is master of sex, reincarnation, recycling, regeneration and rejuvenation. Pluto can bring about turmoil or evolution-meaning that whether you like it or not, there will be an ongoing change and life will and does go on even after tremendous loss. So if you find yourself bouncing between, should I or should I not.....you will know why. It's all Pluto.
