As we begin/began the final week of April 2017, we are still under the
rays of several retrograde planets, including Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and as of last Thursday, Pluto too. (Don't forget
that Venus also just went direct back on April 15th, and is still in the process of moving out of its post-retrograde shadow.)
With all of this going on, you might say that we are still in the time of RAGING RETROGRADES!
(Note: As of 05/10/2017, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all still in retrograde. These retrograde
effects are far more subtle than Mercury retro, but they do still affect us in powerful and similar ways.)
One thing that all these retrogrades
are really great for is giving us a chance to tie up loose ends, resolve karma and close over energy drains in our aura. What do I mean by energy drains in your aura?
In this moment, I am referring to UNFINISHED BUSINESS & UNFINISHED
PROJECTS. The current retrograde extravaganza that is unfolding for the next
few weeks gives us the energy and impetus we need to wrap up these loose ends and take care of what needs to be taken care
of and completed before we can move on to something new.
As I’ve said many times before, retrogrades are for reviewing, renewing,
working on and completing projects and cycles that you have ALREADY started prior to when the retrogrades began. Retrograde cycles are usually NOT good at all for starting anything new. Unless of course, you don’t
much care if that new project or relationship you are starting has any staying power, or if you don’t mind having to
go back and re-do things again in a few weeks or months due to unforeseen consequences and complications.
Of course, sometimes it is just
unavoidable and one has to move forward (or at least TRY to move forward) with a new project anyway when there are important
retrogrades going on. In this case, one can do one’s best to stay sane
by being VERY patient, and also allowing PLENTY of extra time to get things done. In
my opinion, the one thing that is worse than trying to start a new project during a major retrograde cycle (especially MERCURY
retrograde) is trying to get something done on a tight schedule during a major retrograde cycle.
My bottom-line guidance to you during this time of rolling, raging retrogrades is this:
now and May 3rd especially (when Mercury in particular is still technically retrograde), focus as much of your
energy, effort and time that you can into building upon and nurturing EXISTING relationships and projects. In other words, keep going with what you have already started whenever possible, for now is a GREAT time
to revise and to improve upon what you have already got in the works.
And don’t be surprised if your emotions are a bit topsy-turvy
for the next few weeks (especially if you are the sensitive type), as all these strong energies do have a way of activating
the emotional body and bringing emotional toxins to the surface to be released & healed.
you are in a close partnership or relationship of any kind, or if you are active in a group of some kind, BE WARNED—this
might mean a blow up or two in the next few weeks! If that happens, please don’t
view it as the end of the world, but instead as an opportunity to air some issues that need to be aired and work through some
things. Showing KINDNESS, EMPATHY AND RESPECT to others would be VERY helpful at this
time, and just might be what it takes to keep you from burning bridges that you might later regret.
FORGIVINESS is important too, as with all of these rolling retrogrades occurring right now, it is easy to step on each
I should mention here too that there are always people who are sensitive in a different way in that they feel the retrograde
energies in their BODY. This might manifest as feeling drained or more easily tired
than usual. In some cases, a proliferation of retrogrades like we are having right
now might trigger a recurrence of a chronic problem in the body. In cases like this,
the best thing you can do is to give yourself plenty of extra rest and water, and of course, deal with whatever the physical
condition is to the best of your ability.
I myself find that drinking some of the tonic herbal teas if VERY helpful for keeping physical energy levels
up during retrograde cycles. Some of my own personal favorite herbal teas for balancing
& energizing during a retrograde cycle are ginger, peppermint, sage, lemon balm, and licorice.
for keeping energy levels up, I have found that drinking 1-2 cups of Yogi brand De-tox tea 3 or 4 days a week is one of the
most energizing things I can do! You can purchase this very inexpensively at most health
food stores. It has dandelion root in it, along with several other herbs that help
to strengthen & stimulate the liver. (The liver is the source of energy & youthfulness
in the body according to Chinese medicine.) If your experience with this tea is anything
like mine, you will be SHOCKED at how much energy you have after a few days of drinking it.
One more thing—regarding this major cycle
of rolling, raging retrogrades we are currently in, we will probably start to see some improvement in things after
May 3rd, which is when Mercury goes back direct. However, even
then, I wouldn’t be in too much of a hurry to get started with new things, since Mercury is in post-retrograde
storm until May 12th (sort of like a reverb effect). This date
of May 12th is probably the earliest date for when I personally will plan on moving forward with any new major
starts or launches. And even then, I am sure that it will take a few weeks for our
energy and enthusiasm to get back up to normal levels, since Mercury does not leave its post-retrograde shadow until around
Saturday, May 20th.
So at least until then, keep drinking your energizing herbal teas a few times a day if you can, taking your flower essences,
doing your stretches (or walking), and of course, meditate as needed to help keep yourself calm, centered & sane!
