Retrograde activity spikes this month. By the end of the month, half the plants will be located in retrograde motion – the maximum for the year. So, it is a slow month in many areas of life. Slow doesn’t mean ‘bad’, just a slower pace of life. It is, however, a critical period to review your image, your career, love life and health regime. See where improvements can be made, and when the plants start moving forwards again you can set your plans in motion. It is a period for resolving doubts and gaining mental clarity. This is the most important now. If this ‘cosmic pause’ is used properly your future actions will be more successful.
Though there is considerable retrograde movements this month, Mercury, your financial planet, is moving forward speedily. Financial progress is rapid. Financial confidence is good. It should be a prosperous kind of month. Sales, marketing and PR are still influential until the 22nd. From the 8th onwards, there is a good thing that family support. Family connections seem important financially. Many of you will be earning money from home – and these kinds of opportunities will now come to you.
The love life has been put into the doldrums for the past month or so, but you should see improvement towards the end of the month.
Planetary power reaches its nadir (its lowest point) in your chart this month. Your 4th house of home and family is overwhelming all month but especially after the 23rd. Your career planet, Uranus, goes retrograde on the 26th. So, there are not any quick answers on any career issues. Only time will solve things. Want your attention to your home, family and emotional life. Work on your career by the internal methods of night (you are approaching the midnight point of your year): visualize, dream and imagine you are where you want to look. This builds the psychological foundations for future career success – and we could argue that the foundation of a building is as important as the building itself.
Venus, the ruler of your chart and your health planet, makes one of her rare retrogrades this month on the 25th. So you might believe that you lack direction and confidence. Self-esteem and self-confidence could be lacking. This is why it is appropriate to review why you feel as you do and to make the internal corrections needed.
Health is more delicate this month, and especially from the 23rd onwards. Saturn and Jupiter are enclosed in stressful aspect to you and the short-term planets are joining in the party. So rest and relax more and ensure that you get plenty of sleep. Review our discussion of health in the yearly report.
