We are going to talk astrology. If you do not believe in Astrology, it might help to think of it as a metaphor that helps to make tangible the different phases, patterns and themes that make up our varied experience of life.
A lot of you have probably heard the term, “Mercury was in retrograde”, when lamenting that computers suddenly stop working or travel plans get delayed or communication just wasn’t flowing. In the astrology world, planets in retrograde have the reputation of causing havoc. And guess what guys, as of Wednesday we have 5 freaking planets in retrograde. (You can read more about each exactly what that means for you here & here.)
This is pretty remarkable and it is causing a lot of people to stress out about what it means. So, we are here shed some light on how to best harness this retrograde energy. And by harness, we mean surrender, because isn’t that always the name of the game…
Things go wrong during retrograde because everything about the energy is asking us to revise, slow down, and make sure our plans/dreams are in accordance with who we are and where we want to be going. When we try to fight this, or push our agenda, or rush forward on things we we want, the universe lovingly f’s it up.
This retrograde will have a strong influence over our lives until the end of June, and we won’t be free and clear of this re-write, re-visit- re-vise energy until the end of September. In some ways, this is really exciting. You are off the hook in terms of moving things forward. You don’t have to go,go,go. All you have to do is get clear on the things that are important in your life right now. Ground yourself in the present. Make a connection to the thing in your life that you are pushing and instead of pushing it (because seriously, the universe will ruin all of your plans), give it some love, give it a break, and give yourself the time to restore and refresh. Pay attention to what feels off for you and take steps to make it right.
For the next few months, we’ll be taking our own advice and reconnecting with and expanding on our mission, devoting our love and time the new GGG developments before moving forward. We’re pretty excited about the whole thing!
Happy Retrograding & good luck 🙂
