SARA COUGHLIN: “Uranus Has Another Trick Up Its Sleeve And Yes — That Trick Is A Retrograde”

Take a deep breath, stargazers. Now that August has arrived, we’re in the home stretch of summer 2018, aka the summer of retrogrades.

Before we’re out of the woods, however, Uranus would like to join the fun. The planet of sudden change, revolution, and upheaval begins its annual retrograde on Tuesday, August 7.

This isn’t Uranus’ first attempt to stir the pot this year. Back in May, this planet moved into Taurus which, as astrologer Kimberly Peta Dewhirst told Refinery29 at the time, kicked off a new astrological era of change, particularly around how we use money and care for the Earth.

Where that process will take place over the next seven years, Uranus’ retrograde only lasts five months — and, while Uranus in Taurus is expected to exert changes on an external, global scale, Uranus retrograde will incite changes within us.

Retrogrades have a way of urging us to focus on our inner lives. Think about how Mars retrograde tests our tempers or Jupiter retrograde interrogates our approach to learning.

Viewed from this angle, planetary retrogrades are just regularly scheduled lessons we have to learn in order to make personal progress. Uranus retrogrades are no exception. Specifically, they’re thought to show us how we might adapt to the ever-shifting world around us — if we let them, that is.

As astrologer Jamie King writes, these periods tend to arrive in time to help us either adjust our outlook to fit a recent development or prepare for future growth. In case you haven’t been reading your horoscope, this summer’s eclipse season (two occurred last month and there’s one more to come on August 11) is likely to set off plenty of changes in our lives, professional andpersonal. So, yes, we’d consider this year’s Uranus retrograde to be extremely well-timed.

That said, you probably won’t feel this retrograde’s influence in the same way that you’re feeling, say, the current Mercury retrograde. Uranus’ distance from Earth makes its effects on our personal lives pretty subtle, if not downright sneaky.

You might find yourself coming around on a plan you initially resisted or you might learn something new that leads you to view a change at work in a whole new light. These shifts in your mindset will occur gradually and may seem minor at first, but they’re likely to lead to bigger, even major, progress.

For the record, when we say “progress,” we simply mean forward movement — Uranus likes to affect great change, but it’s less concerned with who benefits from it. With luck, you’ll receive the cues of this retrograde and learn to roll with the good and the bad that comes your way in the next five months.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: Retrograde Season — June-August 2018”

2018 is year to build, it is a year to start creating a solid foundation so you can manifest the life of your dreams.

Since the start of the year the cosmos has been guiding us to take action and to start building up the life we desire. We have been working hard to create security and structure, and find balance with the current direction of our lives. But come the end of June a shift is in the air, and the Universe will be asking us to slow down.

From June 26th until August 27th we are going to have up to six planets in retrograde, which is going to slow everything down. These planets include: Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Mars, Neptune, Uranus, and Mercury.

Retrograde energy is about moving within. It is about pausing, reflecting, and working on what is already in front of you rather than reaching for anything new.

Retrogrades cause the expression of the planet to turn inwards, rather than outwards, which means we feel the effects of the planet on a different level. In some cases, we feel the planet more strongly as it’s working on a more internal, subconscious level.

It is often not until a retrograde cycle has completed that we are able to piece together what we what we have to clear in order to move forward.

During a heavy retrograde period like this, the energy of the cosmos becomes slow and instead of trying to push ahead, we have to instead look to our past and how our actions, attitudes, and beliefs are manifesting in our lives.

The Universe wants us to focus what is already on our plates and what we have already set in motion. In fact, trying to push ahead with so many planets in retrograde may make you feel that you are taking one step forward and two steps back.

Each planet gives off its own energy and vibration when in retrograde, but having so many planets retrograde at the same time may make it difficult to differentiate which is which.

Here is a short overview of each retrograde planet and the effects we may feel during this season:

Mars (June 26-August 27)

Mars is the most significant of these retrogrades as it retrogrades the least and its effects are much more noticeable. Mars retrogrades only once every 1.5 years or so, and when it does it really challenges us to assess and review the direction of our lives. Mars will retrograde through the sign of Aquarius and Capricorn, and under this energy we are going to be guided to really go over the past and to reflect on how our actions have been serving or hindering us.

Saturn (April 18-September 6)

Saturn will be retrograde in Capricorn for at least half of the year so we have time to adjust to the energies. Saturn retrograde has been guiding us to focus on what we want to take responsibility for and where we need to set boundaries in our lives. Under this energy, Saturn will really be drawing our attention to whatever we need to step up and take ownership of in order to create the life that we desire. We may have to look over our past actions, or dig through old childhood patterns in order to find our way forward.

Neptune (June 18- November 25)

Neptune is retrograde for nearly half of the year so we don’t feel these effects as strongly. We also have time to adjust to the energies. Neptune is retrograde in the sign of Pisces, and will be helping us to come to terms with our spirituality. We may have new ideas or understanding around our spirituality, or we may even feel confused about what we believe in. After turning direct, clarity usually follows and we may receive a new understanding.

Jupiter (March 9- July 10)

Jupiter retrograde will be guiding us to think about bigger, global causes and how we can make changes that impact the greater good. As Jupiter retrogrades through Scorpio, issues around sexuality and gender equality may come to the forefront. We may also be guided to assess where we need to think bigger in order to get where we want to be.

Pluto (April 22-October 2)

Pluto is also retrograde for most of the year which is why we don’t feel the effects of this retrograde as strongly. Pluto is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn and is going to be helping us to dig through any skeletons in the closet and to release them once and for all. Secrets may be revealed, or you may receive a new understanding or a new truth during this time. Pluto retrograde touches us all differently, but essentially some type of death and rebirth cycle will take place.

Mercury (July 26th-August 19)

Mercury goes retrograde every few months so its energy is nothing we aren’t used to. The effects of Mercury retrograde during this season are likely to be amplified and we may feel more out of sorts than usual. During Mercury retrograde in Leo, we may be encouraged to think about new ways to be creative. Mercury retrograde is a time to go within and uncover buried thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It is a time to also dig up any subconscious thought patterns that may be blocking us.

Uranus (August 7- January 6, 2019)

Uranus goes retrograde until 2019 through the signs of Taurus and Aries. Under this retrograde energy we are going to be clearing and wrapping up lessons from 2008, when Uranus first entered Aries. As Uranus travels out of Taurus and back into Aries, we will be given any final lessons or gifts, and we will be really encouraged to start a new chapter and a new cycle. After turning direct, Uranus in Taurus will present us with new themes and lessons for the new year.

Collectively, all of these retrograding planets and energies are going to be guiding us to consider our actions and what choices we have been making in our lives so far.

Have we been making decisions based on fear or have we been making decisions based on love?

Have we been letting people walk all over us or have we been setting firm boundaries?

Have we been speaking our truth and communicating clearly or have we been lying or avoiding the truth?

These are all things we are going to have to ponder during this period of retrograde activity.

After the end of August, things will start speeding up again and we will be able to begin taking more forward moving action.

It is also worth mentioning that Venus will go retrograde from October 5 until November 16. While this energy won’t slow things down as much as Mars Retrograde, it is a very clear sign from the Universe that we are being asked to really be in review and assessment mode for the rest of the year.

As 2018 is a year to build and establish yourself, it makes sense that we would really be encouraged to go over things and review actions we have taken so far.

We are all in the mode of preparing our foundation and building things up brick by brick. We may not be able to see the finished product just yet, but a skilled builder knows that it’s all about creating the perfect foundation and ensuring that the bottom bricks are strong enough to hold whatever is going to go on top.

Under all this retrograde energy, we are going to have to make sure we are building with integrity, with our hearts, and with our highest intentions in mind.

We are all going to be called to ensure that what we are building is aligned with our highest good.

ZOE DAVENPORT: “New Moon Energy Update”

“If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words. Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.”

~Zoe Davenport

 

If you have been feeling the collective energies it could be described as somewhat chaotic and a sense of moving backwards in time as the mind looks to rationalise the emotions coming out to play by hashing up old events, stories and timelines.

As we are moving into a very important part of 2018, to keep on track with what the heart is communicating on more subtle levels through the body, intuition and allowing things to sit and wait out a little more before acting upon.

The most effective way to clear through any old stuck energy right now is movement, get outside and play in the sunshine, dance around in your living room listening to your favourite music, shaking, jiggling, anything to get the body moving through the cellular memories of old beliefs.

It’s a conditioning with the mind/body and spirit to balance out so the cells can restore through the cleansing of carbon density, move into a more fluid way of creation, and resonate with more light.  This comes from attuned vibration through activating your energies in a way that is taking away from the mind and rational thoughts to stepping into what FEELS good in the NOW.  This new moon is will be feeling good with movement, play, jumping!

If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words.  Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.

This is a time to be inspired though yang, action through joy, movement through alignment to what the body needs to wake up, get going to flow through.

Talking is done, there is no more need to keep going over the “minds” “rational” version of events right now, it is quicker to call the body to the party to let go and surrender through being free in the moment to express how it needs to.

This will be a powerful time leading up to the summer solstice energies on the 21st June 2018 and the new moon movement energies are able to hold the frequency to the newness of what wants to manifest into the second half of 2018.

The movement will create a balance energetically as the body is feeling safe through self-expression and joy to release stuck beliefs.

This is a time of newness as our bodies are shifting and are needed to be loved unconditionally through the process, the old loops and cycles of past events cannot settle when there is a continued flow of energy throughout so keep moving and shaking and this yang will hold us safe through the shifts.

Set the intentions and allow it to feel good in the body, in the energy centers, in the heart, call in for support from the collective, and continue to play through each emotion by understanding then moving and activating the voice.

Don’t be afraid of self-expression through movement and play it will be an integral part to ascension and stepping into more fluid dimensional experiences and stuck energy cannot shift when the focus is on stuck energy is needs fluidity and light to flush through.  Much like the body detoxes so too the energetic systems need a clearing and moving, shaking and the voice will support and expand this process.

Shake, shake, shake, dance, jiggle, wiggle, scream, shout, let it ALL out, these old paradigm emotions have no space to reside within the cells of joy and love so allow a joyful new practice to come into motion this coming week and you will feel more abundantly supported, clear less stuck and spacious within the cells.

Abundant Blessings | Zoe Davenport

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “New Moon In Gemini — 13th June 2018 — Guiding You Every Step Of The Way”

Can you believe we are halfway through the year?

2018 is a year of awakenings, growth, and building. It is a year to start building the foundation for your dreams.

As we reach the halfway mark, we are going to be reminded of this, and reminded of just how far we have come on our journey.

Life is never linear, it is always ebbing and flowing, moving and shaking. It is forever changing, and we have to be willing to change along with it.

The June New Moon falls on the 13th in the sign of Gemini, and is a sacred point in the year, a time where we can really think about how our lives have changed, and what new things or journeys we are going to work towards.

It is a time to reflect on what has transpired and to think about what is next. No matter what life has brought your way, no matter where you currently stand, this New Moon is here to help guide your way, and to remind you that it is never too late to begin again. It is never too late for a new beginning, no matter how big or how small.

Gemini energy is all about self-expression, speaking your truth, and finding your creativity. As an air sign, Gemini energy encourages us to think deeply so we can figure out what thoughts are true and what thoughts stem from our fears.

Our thoughts are so powerful, and can dictate how we experience and see the world. Our thoughts can also overrule our lives if we don’t keep them in check.

The good news is that you don’t have to believe everything you think. At any time, you can choose to let go of thoughts that are no longer serving you, and instead focus on thoughts that are. At any time, you can choose to replace negative thoughts with more positive ones.

Thoughts are so powerful, and so on this New Moon we are going to be encouraged to look and assess what thought processes and belief systems we are holding onto.

What stories do we keep telling ourselves? What thoughts are blocking us from moving forward?

If you can find the time to ask yourself these questions and to really dig deeper into the wisdom of your soul, you will be given all the support you need to rewrite or let go of stories that are no longer serving you.
