Daily Magic: April 9, 2017 {On Retrogrades And Feeling Disconnected}

4 planets are retrograde: Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Jupiter. Also, someone tried to hack all my social media accounts…. It’s a good time to back up stuff, change passwords and watch for miscommunication because…

It’s retrograde season! Venus stations direct on April 15 but we’ll still be in her retrograde shadow until mid May. Pluto turns retro on April 20.

What does this mean? Retrogrades are about stepping back, and evaluating what you really want.

It’s a time to take an honest look at your life, and admit whether or not you’re genuinely happy.

Is that fun? Generally, no. Is it worthwhile? Absolutely.

The disconnection that occurs during retrogrades allows you to detach from desires, beliefs, routines… that just aren’t yours.

It’s not a good time for making decisions. But it’s a fabulous time to take your attention away from what isn’t you, and turn your focus toward what is. The tarot card that showed up today, the Ace of Pentacles, sheds more light on that.

Tomorrow’s New Moon and this week might feel awkwardly tense. It’s really not the best time to end a love relationship, although you might feel you should. Remember to hold off on major decisions, but pull back, meditate on patience, and do some healing.

This is the personal lesson I’ve been learning lately: The more pressure and expectations I let go of, the more my spontaneous but powerful heart is free to lead the way to my true desires.

Saturn square Chiron: You’ll be pushed to grow up! through taking responsibility, practical self-care, staying objective, and releasing the past. Watch for self-punishing behavior.

Uranus Pluto Square: Breaking down behavior patterns and social structures with righteous anger marks this beautiful energy. But it can also create chaos and anxiety…. Let go of the old and the dead.

Jupiter square Pluto: Facing and overcoming your fears with deep insight is a little easier at this time. Just watch for cynicism, narcissism and dwelling on those fears.

Jupiter opposes Uranus: Watch for technology overwhelm or attention deficit disorder. But technology can foster healthy revolutions, as long as it’s in balance.

Jupiter in Libra: We’re evolving and growing this year primarily through relationships and social connections – believe it or not!
