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.

VALERIE MESA: “Why This Total Lunar Eclipse 2018 Will Be The Most Life Changing Celestial Event Of The Year”

There are more eclipses coming your way, stargazers! Granted, some of us haven’t really had a chance to process the partial solar eclipse on July 12, but let’s be real, we really have no choice but to surrender.

For the record, the total lunar eclipse 2018, aka blood moon, is not to be taken lightly. On the contrary, it is said to be the longest total lunar eclipse of this century. That in itself is pretty mind blowing, don’t you think?

On July 27, at exactly 4:20 p.m. ET, the moon will take a journey through the earth’s shadow, for approximately one hour and 43 minutes. This eclipse will appear orange and red, due to sunlight passing through earths’s atmosphere and reflecting off the moon. I know, isn’t that totally magical? Although, the majority of us won’t get to witness this cosmic event, (North America) as the moon will be below the horizon.

This particular eclipse is part of the Leo-Aquarius eclipse family, which is set to continue until the beginning of 2019. The lunar eclipse on July 27 will be in 4 degrees Aquarius, and the solar eclipse on Aug. 11 will be in 18 degrees Leo. The final Leo-Aquarius eclipse, however, will take place on Jan. 21, 2019 in 0 degrees Leo. This will be the conclusion of a two and a half year cycle.

Until then, here’s the 411 on this massive lunation:

Total Lunar Eclipse In Aquarius

For starters, the moon is a highly emotional planet, so you can already imagine how emotional a lunar eclipse really is. However, this eclipse will be in the sign of Aquarius, which also happens to be the sign of the collective.

Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac, as it represents social groups, teams, and tribes. With the moon in Aquarius, reactions tend to be more logical than emotional, as our humanity becomes top of mind.

Let It Go

This total lunar eclipse will conjunct (sit close to) both the South Node and Mars Retrograde. THIS IS WILD. For starters, in astrology, anything that conjuncts the South Node means it’s cleansing, clearing, and leaving our lives. (FYI: The south node represents both the gifts and karmic debt we bring from previous lifetimes.)

Now, adding wood to the fire, Mars will also be involved, which make this ending that much more powerful. Although, with Mars Retrograde, there could be some frustration in the process.

Put it this way, Mars loves to go fast. Its energy is vigorous, enthusiastic, and passionate AF. However, in retrograde, this intense energy is internalized, so it could feel somewhat restless. Nevertheless, the universe is asking us to let something go, and free ourselves from emotional (moon) burdens.

The lunar eclipse, alongside Mars Rx and the South Node, will be making a square (tension) to rebellious Uranus. Interestingly enough, Uranus is Aquarius’ planetary ruler, and it literally just switched signs into Taurus, so this is a whole new level of meaning. Uranus is the planet of chaos, electricity, and rebellion. Taurus represents our income, values, and self worth. Together, these energies will transmit electric waves of change, pushing us towards a whole new level of perspective. Now, this is really powerful, and since the South Node is involved, it will help us rid ourselves of what no longer serves us. Are you ready?

Confidence Boost

This lunar eclipse will be a blessing in disguise, and I’ll tell you why. The day of the eclipse, the sun in Leo will also be conjunct the North Node. The sun represents our soul purpose, and the North Node is basically the yellow brick road toward the sun, aka our soul. Also, the sun is our energy and vitality, so this could definitely be a confidence booster, as well as a bright light in our lives.

Let Love In

Despite how intimidating this lunar eclipse might sound, just know that you are undergoing a beautiful transformation. This is your metamorphosis, and your soul evolution. Release what no longer serves you, and open the door to change.

Let love in.

AWAKENING 5D HEALING: “Energy Update — The Event Is Happening”

Here we go friends. The great shift is in full swing now! We are being transformed from the inside out. We were one thing and now we are becoming something quite different. Upgraded humans are walking among us, we are them, they are us. We are becoming a unity consciousness race. Evolved beyond the terrors of the third and fourth dimensions. We are rising to higher dimensional wavelengths. The Blood Moon and spectacular Lunar Eclipse on 27th July mark the great of a great tidal wave of light. We are being propelled to raise our inner vibration in turn manifesting inner love to outer peace. We are transforming ourselves and our world. We are birthing the new earth.

The crystal children are here, awakening, and woke. They are here to change dark to light. To let Gaia breathe and unfurl her wings of true beauty and higher consciousness. The rainbow children, indigos and crystals know who they are, they are looking for guidance and direction from older starseed and lightworkers who have been navigating the matrix for many human years. They seek protection and love in a hostile world. Lightworkers shine your light bright and high for those golden shards of light dressed up as humans, looking to transform all around them from fear to love. The matrix is trying to lock them up, lock them down, pull them apart. It seeks to question their sanity, to paint them as ill, dangerous and unstable. They seek to pharmaceuticalise indigos, to repress their light, to dim it and stifle it. But no one, not even the overlords, can put out the light of the rainbow children. Just as they failed to diminish the light of volunteers so too, they are desperate in their failure to switch off the rainbow children. They have arrived. We have arrived. You have arrived.

Jupiter’s Scorpio retrograde exit on July 10th will break us free from his determined pullback. Kicked off in early March we have been pushing through his cosmic cleanse. Global karmic purge. Secrets revealed. Truth exposed. Anger unleashed. Release from soul searching and the self doubt his karmic excavation has exposed. From hostilities and difficulties and confrontations. We are stepping into our power beautiful people. We are standing up and being counted. We are saying there are other species walking among us. There are allies and enemies in the skies. We are saying the world is quantum not linear. We are saying it’s all about energy frequencies friends. The world is reeling from the truths being revealed and there are more to come. But awakening has taken hold, it is spreading like a virus through the matrix. The cabal know it. Chaos ensues. Breathe. Be the calm in the storm of cosmic evolution.

Gaia has had enough, she is shaking off the lower realms, breaking free from evil that has held her and us captive for too long. The skies buzz with angels and demons fighting it out for the dimensional sovereignty of planet earth and her people. Jupiter’s retrograde in dark, sharp Scorpio has done his part. He has brought his immense strength and power to Gaia’s ascension. His masculine courage and fearlessness have empowered many of us to face deep fears and see them through to the bitter end. We all rise like phoenix from the flames of our own trauma and the traumas of the human race. We understand so much more than we did before. We regain our identity, our sense of who we are and what we are. This is all as it should be.

The indigo children are ready to restructure, redesign our cities, our energy, our technologies, our economic processes. They wait in the wings looking for the light of the volunteers who paved the way for them. Lightworkers shine your light bright, let them see us. Nothing will be random anymore, everything has meaning. We maximise our energetic field of light at this time, recharging our batteries for the coming Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse. Drink water, avoid processed food and drink, meditate and be in nature. Embrace all Jupiter has to teach us about our world, accept irritations, release anger and frustration. The Jupiter Retrograde test is surrender. Surrender to our intuition, our instincts and to the ever shining light of our guides and higher self. We can hear, we can see, we can be fifth dimension. We can raise our vibrations instantly, just as they can be lowered by the matrix in seconds. We can take back the reigns, consciously reject fear and fury and fall in love with our own inner light.

What will this all look like? What does it look like? Like a radio we can tune our wavelengths into different frequencies. We can immerse ourselves in low vibrations keeping ourselves in dense murky karmic energy with hate, anger and fear. We can limit our own evolution easily. Or we can grab that dial and turn it waaaayyyyyy up. Let go of fear in every molecule and cell of our body. Banish it from our soul with mantras connecting to light, to love and to green fields of beauty and wonder. Sunny afternoons become spiritual, nature transforms us with her organic frequencies of light. Concrete and crowds lower our vibrations. Know who you are, what you are and why you are here. Own it. The time is now, the event has been here for sometime, the evolution of a planet and her people is happening and we are there at ground zero riding waves of cosmic light. Our core strengthens, our heart opens and our third eye switches on. All three bring us to realms flooded by light.

The fifth dimension is here, the frequencies have pushed through the dense, manufactured atmosphere of the matrix. Penetrating the darkness with transcendent light. We can all tune up our frequency to the fifth dimension. For lightworkers, starseed and all rainbow children, higher dimensional wavelengths, spaces many call home, are readily accessible. Meditate love frequency friends and return home spiritually. Cloak yourself in the zen bliss of high dimensional realities, of peace, inner stillness, light body wonder and magic. The event, a process in human years, has been underway for several decades and will continue for several more. As timelines switch and fluctuate rapidly, as each new individual takes their light to higher dimensions, all predictions are out the window. We have regained our sovereignty, we are taking back our free will and with that our timelines, our manifestation and our magic. Take me beyond is the mantra for this wave of immense light and high frequencies, take me beyond cosmic surfers! Namaste 🙏🏻

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Buckle Up! It’s Going To Be A Crazy Summer With 6 Planets Going Retrograde”

The planets within our solar system are in a constant motion as they revolve around our Sun.

When we gaze into the night sky, our planets move to the East relative to the stars. However, there are times where it appears that a planet is moving in the opposite direction, to the West, and that is when a planet is referred to as moving retrograde.

Retrograde motion is when a planet appears, when observed from Earth, in reverse direction. The reason why this happens is that of an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit. In the realm of astrology, the retrograde motion has severe negative connotations.

As Mercury is the planet said to rule communication, those who are astrologically inclined expect frequent misunderstandings, scheduling problems and disagreements with friends during this period. It enters apparent retrograde motion between three and four times a year, for about three weeks at a time.

This is because Mercury is the fastest revolving planet in our Solar System. Seven out of the nine planetary energies go retrograde. The two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, can never go retrograde.

1. Pluto in Retrograde

The planet Pluto will continue retrograding till the 30th of September and it showers a real sense of direction on people while retrograding. It helps you to get over all your pains, sufferings and difficulties in life by making you more determined. It increases your ability to self-heal and recover from the wounds by increasing your willpower.

2. Saturn in Retrograde

Saturn has been retrograding for a while now and it will keep on doing so till the 6thof September. The revolving motion of the planet Saturn in an opposite directed has a direct connection with karma. While Saturn is in retrograde, people’s past will confront them and they will have to right the wrongs if they want to move forward with their lives.

3. Jupiter in Retrograde

Jupiter will continue to be in retrograde for some time and it comes out of retrograde on the 10th of July, which is a lot sooner than Pluto and Saturn. Although the energies coming out of Jupiter is not as valuable as the ones from Pluto and Saturn. But it is still very imperative.

4. Neptune in Retrograde

Neptune is yet to be in retrograde. Neptune will start revolving backward from the 18th of June and will stop on the 24th of November. It is a plant of life and positive energies but is also brings back people’s past and if they don’t confront their past, it may cause karmic repercussions.

5. Mars in Retrograde

Mars is yet to be in retrograde. It starts on the 26th of June and Mars will be in retrograde until the 27th of August. Mars is a very promising plant and it brings along with it a source of astonishing energy that mankind has never felt before.

6. Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury is yet to be in retrograde. It starts in the month of July and will not stop its motion before the 18th of August. The backward revolving motion of Mercury brings along with it a lot of sadness and grief. It makes people confront the things that they were hiding from, drawing them out to the light.
