Retrograde Energy & Motion

When the outer planets -- Jupiter through Pluto -- turn retrograde, they stay that way for months. As they back up through degrees of the Zodiac they have already traveled, the quality of their familiar energy changes. They operate differently. Their energy feels different. Your understanding of them changes, so you use them in ways you didn't notice -- or didn't know about -- when you originally worked with them.

They present different opportunities. Your perspective changes. Your relationship with that planet, its assets & experiences grows, adjusts & deepens. The shape of life itself alters with a planet retrograde, so of course your behavior changes. A retrograde planet turns its energy inward, which affects the way you feel about it, the way you feel it working ... & the information you take from the encounter.

Retrograde energy

People who know a little about Astrology & some of its terms get a bit queasy when they hear the word "retrograde." I guess we can thank Mercury for that. He's made enough of an impression on the mainstream with his frequents retreats, back-ups and roundabouts that even people who proclaim they don't "believe in" Astrology at least know what that generally means. In a nutshell: delays & communications screw-ups.

So you kinda have to break it to them gently that all the planets in a horoscope have a retrograde cycle. These days you hope that doesn't get you a smack upside the head. People feel they've got enough to cope with. But on August 15, Uranus joined the retrograde team. All five outer planets are retrograde now -- and Mars will soon join them. 60% of the sky in retrograde. We're going nowhere fast.

Retrograde Energy

People who know a bit about Astrology hear the word "retrograde," think "Mercury" ... & immediately cringe. If little ol' Mercury can make such a mess when he's retrograde, what in the name of Peace can the big guys do? I think that's the thought that crosses their minds. Ok, it's a legitimate one, but it takes a shift in perspective to actually get to an answer.

Retrograde energy isn't the problem -- or "the enemy." It isn't here to mess up your life (or take delight in it!), although it sometimes feels like that. Retrograde glitches are actually gifts, & I know how New-Agey / silly-sappy / Pollyanna / goody-two-shoes that sounds when you get handed a real inconvenience or a serious issue ... for no discernible reason.
