Happy new moon in Virgo! This month’s new moon was exact
tonight (Mon Sept 6 2021) at 7:52 pm Central daylight time. This is the beginning of a new cycle of creation & manifestation
that lasts all the way up until the next new moon on October 6th.
Virgo is a cleanser, gardener, healer, server, and organizer, so expect these areas of your life (and
aspects of self) to be highlighted over the next four weeks. Now is the time to set out to make changes & new beginnings
in these Virgo related areas in the month ahead. This Virgo cycle is definitely a cycle of growth & productivity
in many areas.
mind that we do have MANY planets in retrograde at the moment, so new beginnings made during this next month may take more
time than usual, and require a bit more patience on your part.

for September 2021:
This video will give you an overview of the flow of energies in this month ahead, including
Mercury retrograde that is coming into play later this month.
New Moon in Virgo-
Time of Getting Organized & Back on Track
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
Dear Cosmic &
Psychic Friends, hello there, and Happy New
Moon in Virgo!
This New Moon in Virgo is the beginning of a new
cycle of creation & manifestation that lasts all the way up until the next new moon on
This new cycle will bring your attention to the need for new beginnings
& adjustments in the realms of work, service, organization, efficiency, spiritual discernment & discipline, health,
diet & nutrition, household & garden duties and improvements, and connection to nature and the plant realm.
Writing, self-improvement, studying, healing, and prioritizing goals are other areas
that could be activated for you during this new cycle.
Virgo is a very BUSY sign that revels in fixing
things and getting stuff done. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself quite busy indeed over the next
The modern symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, symbolizing purity and purification.
The more ancient symbol for this sign is the wheat harvester or harvester maiden, symbolizing the fertility, productivity,
and discernment of this sign.
Virgo is the part
of the soul that separates the wheat from the chaff. Meaning, this sign has a critical & discerning eye that is
able to recognize what is practical, valuable, and useful, and what is not.
This aspect of Virgo compels you to examine your life and recognize what is worth keeping and strengthening,
while also purifying and clearing away that which no longer serves you.
can go a bit too far with its critical eye. When this happens, discernment sharpens into pessimism and self-doubt.
Virgos are their own worst critics. Even though they can be critical of others, they are usually far harder upon themselves
than others. They hold themselves to very high standards, standards that are usually impossible to meet.
While we are under the influence of this new moon in Virgo, it is important to remember to be GENTLE with
your self and others.
Virgo also represents the quest for self-improvement & perfection.
And yet, the more one tunes into the energies of one’s inner Virgo, the easier it is to see the flaws and imperfections
Again, remember to be gentle with yourself and others. Also remember
that even if something seems less than perfect, it can still represent improvement & progress in some way, and it can
still have value & worth.
In fact, sometimes it’s the imperfections that creates something truly beautiful and unique.
A NEW CYCLE OF CREATION BEGINS
(With a few complications)
Each month, the new moon signals a time
of NEW BEGINNINGS & GROWTH. This is also a time of RE-emergence and RE-activation after the quieter and more restful
energies that take place in the week directly before the new moon.
The new moon is usually your signal that it’s time to get mobilized again and set your goals and
intentions for the lunar month ahead.
However, this particular new moon is also occurring
against the backdrop of 6 major planetary retrogrades. With the planetary emphasis on retrograde energy at the moment, there is also a need to review, re-assess
and go back and re-cover old ground…while at the same time moving forward in new ways with your existing projects,
goals, or dreams.
So even though the lunar tide is now ripe for starting things &
instigating change, you may find that things take a little bit longer than you thought, or that you have to go back and re-work
your plans more than once.
Also, with all this retrograde energy, it is possible that you may
be more focused on shedding & extricating yourself from existing situations at this time, rather than trying to instigate
Virgo is a sign of cleansing & purification. So if closing a chapter or tying up loose
ends is a higher priority for you this month (rather than starting new things), that should work well with the energies of
this new moon cycle too.
SETTING YOUR INTENTIONS
FOR THIS NEW CYCLE AHEAD
The new moon is traditionally viewed as the OPTIMAL time each month
for setting goals & intentions for the month ahead. When setting intentions for this lunar month ahead, it’s
best if you choose just 1-3 important goals or intentions that you can easily make progress on in the next 3-4 weeks.
Since this is only a month long cycle, it’s best that you do
not choose something too big or too complicated for your new moon intentions. Keep it manageable. If you are working
on a larger project or towards a grander goal, then just break it down into smaller steps, and choose 1-3 of those to work
towards this month.
It is also best if you WRITE these goals
& intentions down somewhere that you can easily see them often. This will help you to stay focused so that you actually
make progress towards your goals in the month ahead.
terms of TIMING, most astrologers say that the best time to set new intentions for the new moon is within 8 hours of its actual
occurrence. However, my psychic sense & my actual experience has shown me that the window for setting new moon intentions
(and harnessing its energies) is MUCH larger than this.
From my own personal experience with working with the lunar cycles for guidance and manifestation for over 30
years now, you have about THREE FULL DAYS from the time the new moon occurs to set your new moon intentions.
As long as you set your intentions or goals and plant the seeds for
new growth within 72 hours of the occurrence of the new moon, you will be good to go, and can still harness the power of the
new moon energies.
In fact, if you are like me, and you
tend to get a little bit emotionally sensitive or low on energy right around the actual time of the new moon, you might actually
PREFER to wait until about 12-24 hours AFTER the new moon has hit exact to set your new moon intentions. (This will
help ensure that you are in a clearer head & heart space when you set your priorities for the month ahead.)
This month’s new moon took place at 7:52 pm Central Daylight
USA time on Monday, September 6th 2021. Utilizing the 72 hour rule, that means you have until just before 8 pm (Central
Daylight USA time) on Thursday, September 9th to set your new moon intentions & goals for the month ahead.
(Of course, you can set goals & intentions whenever you want,
but this is the window of time for doing that if you want to harmonize with the lunar energies for this month to help support
you in your intentions.)
ALIGNING WITH VIRGO ENERGY
You can set your new moon intentions & goals for this month in
ANY area of life that you would like. However, things will flow more easily & efficiently for you in the month ahead
if you choose to focus on goals that align with the natural energies of the sign of the new moon.
As mentioned above, Virgo is associated with many realms of life, including work, health,
daily-routines, service, and connection with animals and pets.
This month’s new moon will draw your attention to where you need to get more
organized in your life & build a better framework.
It also provides an opportunity for new growth and setting goals
in the areas of work, health, diet, fitness, service, writing, organization, discipline, and any other realm of self-improvement.
(Virgo’s specialties are self-improvement & organization.)
To better align with the energies of this new moon cycle, you can set goals & intentions in any of
the above-mentioned areas.
Virgo can be a bit of a FIXER too.
So don’t be at all surprised if you find yourself taking on new projects or finally dealing with long-term projects
that you have been putting off. This Virgo new moon cycle is particularly good for fixing and dealing with household
or work challenges.
But just be sure that you what you are
trying to fix is something within your own life, and not someone else’s. As no matter how much you want to help,
you usually can’t fix another person’s problems for them. Of course, you can offer appropriate support & encouragement,
which is different than trying to fix them or their problems.
Virgo has an element of drudgery to it, as it is good with dealing with things like housework, paperwork, and
just WORK period. Virgo likes things to run smoothly & efficiently, and now is a good time for figuring out how
you can do some of your daily tasks more efficiently.
This is also a time that is associated with CLEANSING, RE-ORGANIZING, AND RE-CALIBRATION. There is a need for deep level cleansing, healing or re-arranging
in one or more areas of life right now. This cleansing & re-arranging may need to take place on a physical level
(home or physical body) OR it may need to take place on an emotional, mental, or spiritual level, or even on MULTIPLE levels
This need to cleanse and release is amplified
by the energies of all the retrograde planets that we also have at the moment.
Overall, it’s time to get re-organized and back on track with your vision or goals. It may
also be time to re-prioritize how you utilize your time. Having meaningful routines & daily habits are important
right now. Virgo enjoys categorizing and list-making, so this is also a good time to take inventory of your life
and make lists of plans, to-dos & goals for the months ahead.
Whatever it is you are growing and creating in your life at the moment, whatever you are focused upon,
now is the time to tend to important details, get back with the program, be more organized, and GET STUFF DONE!
In this month ahead, embrace your inner Virgo, and open to the guidance and direction
of this wise & discerning inner maiden. Until next time, I'm wishing you a blessed & bliss-filled new moon

Uranus Retrograde-Rest & Regroup, Enough with the Distractions!
8:21 pm cdt
the Distractions Already!
A Time to Rest From Constant Change & Regroup
By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia Killion
This year, Uranus is in retrograde from August 19th 2021 all the way up until Jan 18th
2022. (Next year, it will be retrograde from Aug 24 2022 to Jan 22 2023.)
This is a 5 month long
transit, so it’s going to have a much longer influence over your life than say, a full moon, or even Mercury retrograde.
Uranus is considered an outer
or trans-personal planet, which means that its influence is often more SUBTLE and less obvious that some of the faster moving
heavenly bodies, such as the moon or Mercury.
Often, Uranus seems to have a stronger effect
on the collective consciousness than the individual. Then again, I have seen many examples of people experiencing the lightning-strike
power of a Uranus transit in the form of sudden, unexpected disruptions, surprises, or chaos.
It all depends on your own unique birth chart
and especially what planets & signs are strongest in your chart, and also how transiting Uranus is moving within your
Uranus is said to be the natural ruler of the sign Aquarius. For this reason, if you have Aquarius strong in your birth chart, you are likely to experience the retrograde of Uranus
more strongly than others. This includes you if your sun, moon, or rising are in Aquarius, or if you have other
important natal points in Aquarius.
Also, if you have important natal points around the same position that transiting Uranus is at during the
retrograde, or if you have even have natal points at similar degrees in ANY sign as Uranus is when it is moving through its
retrograde, than you too will be likely to experience the effects more strongly.
During its 2021 retrograde cycle, Uranus moves from 14-10 degrees Taurus in retrograde motion.
In 2022, it will move from 18-15 degrees Taurus during its retrograde time. If you have ANY important natal planets
at this degrees, then you will likely feel the effects of that Uranus retrograde more strongly.
(For example, if you have an important natal point at anywhere between
14-10 degrees in any sign, then this 2021 Uranus retrograde is likely to activate some kind of energy or issue for you, especially
if the natal point involved is in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius.)
Regardless of which signs are strongest in your personal chart, we ALL will respond to
the energy of Uranus retrograde in some way. Continue reading below to learn more about how to best navigate this
URANUS THE GREAT AWAKENER
Uranus is the Great Awakener &
the Great Disrupter, and the bringer of unexpected events & surprises, both wanted, and unwanted. It is also known
as the Great Liberator.
One of its main functions is to SHAKE THINGS UP and get you to look at your situation in a new way. Often, it FORCES you to change by stirring up chaos in a certain area of life or getting you so rattled up that you
finally agree to move out of your comfort zone into a new and unchartered territory.
This is not an energy for the faint of heart. And yet, without Uranus (and the Aquarius energy) we would all be stuck in the same old ruts day after day, with no
growth, novelty, expansion or evolution. So Uranus helps us out with all of that (growth, expansion, novelty
& evolution) by zapping us out of our comfort zones, either through sudden, external events, OR in response to an internal
sense of discontent & dis-satisfaction.
When you are tapped into the Uranus energy in a more positive way, you are free-spirited and spontaneous, and
open to change. When under the STRONG influence of Uranus, you may become incredibly impulsive, and may do drastic things
that you later regret, all in the name of making a change, or breaking out of what seems like a confining or limiting situation.
Now when Uranus goes retrograde, all of this changes a bit. Maybe not at first, but eventually.
In fact, right around the time that Uranus goes retrograde, and especially two weeks before, and for up to a month
after, you might experience an EXPLOSION of Uranian energy in your life, perhaps in the form of unexpected surprises (both
wanted & unwanted). Or you may experience a temporary increase in discontent or restlessness.
(On a more positive note, you could also have an increase in intuitive flashes, mental
breakthroughs & insights right around the time that Uranus goes retrograde, as Uranus is linked with these kinds of brilliant
insights and flashes of intuition.)
It is normal for the energies of
a planet to intensify around the time that it retrogrades, particularly with one that will be in a long retrograde of five
And yet, if you listen to your inner voice, and tune into the sounds
of the Cosmos, you will notice that with this retrograde, there is now a different cosmic song being sung….
TAKE A BREAK & RE-GROUP
In essence, this Uranus retrograde cycle signals a time to TAKE A BREAK from making new major or sudden changes.
It’s time to regroup, and focusing on dealing with the major changes that have ALREADY happened in the recent past.
This is a time to go with the flow with whatever disruption and chaos is ALREADY happening, and stop trying to stir the pot
or bring on more chaos or drama for yourself, at least, for the time being. (smile)
It’s as if the Universe is saying, “Enough with all the disruptions for now!”
Instead of disrupting everything and trying to move in radically new directions, now
is a time for following through with the new path that you have already chosen.
Just in case you didn’t quite catch that (as it is SO important), let me reiterate here:
Instead of trying to push ahead to make extreme changes right now, you are being asked
to review & reflect on changes that have ALREADY been made or set into motion. You are also being asked to
FOLLOW-THROUGH with previous commitments made or projects started.
necessarily mean that you have to follow through with something that isn’t working for you. In fact, if after
a thorough review, you find that the recent changes you have made aren’t working for you, you may decide to let those
go to follow something that feels more soothing & more aligned with your soul.
You don’t have to stay with a dead-end path, job or relationship just because Uranus is in retrograde.
However, whenever possible, you need to stay with what is ALREADY working for you and LEAN INTO that thing, instead of trying
to force new radical changes into uncharted territory. This is not a good time to throw out something that is already
working well for you just to pursue a novelty or sudden distraction.
DEAL WISELY WITH
ANY UNEXPECTED CHANGES
All that being said, right around the time that Uranus retrogrades,
you may experience a temporary INCREASE in radical changes & unexpected endings that happen SPONTANTEOUSLY and without
any effort on your part.
If such changes are happening to you, it is best to slow down and
think things through so that you can RESPOND wisely, rather than reacting from anger, dissatisfaction, or discontentment.
You may also feel suddenly compelled to end or quit a job, habit or relationship that
hasn’t been working for you for a long time, as if you suddenly get the courage to do what you have wanted to do all
Be careful with this though, and do be sure that the signs to leave
have been there for a long time previously, and that you aren’t just reacting to momentary discomfort or discontent.
On other hand, if the situation has been deteriorating for a long time and has become overly chaotic or dramatic, this may
indeed be the time for you to begin to gradually take steps to move on.
To be clear,
it’s not up to you to try to make major changes right now, unless it is absolutely necessary. In fact, if a major
course correction or change is needed, the Universe will most likely reveal that to you at this time, either in the form of
a fateful or serendipitous event, or through the wise counsel or guidance of a spiritual, metaphysical or humanitarian type
During this retrograde, you are also being asked to work in your
own inner consciousness to elevate your vibration and empower yourself by changing your thoughts. To help prepare yourself
for future changes, you must first change the way you think by elevating your thinking to a more positive place.
This is a time to begin to learn more about creating change from the inside-out.
Change begins WITHIN, in the heart and the mind’s eye.
your energy field and practicing guided visualization are both useful practices to employ during Uranus retrograde.
Even if you currently feel stuck in an uncomfortable situation, you can draw more light into your energy field and send light
to all involved to help open up new possibilities for change. Also, visualizing positive outcomes can be very effective
now. The change must be accomplished on an inner level FIRST, before you will see results in the outer world.
RESOLVING KARMA & TYING UP LOOSE ENDS is also important during this time.
If you find yourself unable to leave a difficult situation at the moment, it is likely that you still have some kind of karma
to resolve there. Ask yourself what it is you still need to learn or do here in order to achieve greater spiritual balance
or harmony, then focus on that for a little while.
FORGIVINESS is also an important
theme during most Uranus retrograde periods. As in, forgiveness of yourself, and others. Holding grudges and carrying
bitterness about the past is like moving through life with a boulder tied around your neck—it is a burden that only
weighs you down and wears you out. So let it go, and forgive! Forgiveness will FREE YOU to go on to make the major
changes in the future that you desire.
You may also experience some interesting
chance-encounters & serendipities during this retrograde, especially during the first month that Uranus is in retrograde.
New and interesting people may come into your life during this time, and you may feel a strong spiritual connection with some
of these new people. Furthermore, a new spiritual teacher or mentor may unexpectedly enter your life during this time,
or you may get turned on to a new spiritual teaching or philosophy that changes your life for the better.
In any case, new relationships that are formed during the time that Uranus is in retrograde
may only be temporary. Uranus has a bit of a volatile, unpredictable energy, and new relationships that arise during
one of its significant transits may also be volatile and transient. So be sure to give yourself TIME to see how
any new relationships that arise now will unfold over the long-term. It’s best to not get overly-invested in these
new connections until AFTER the retrograde has ended.
The same goes
for new inspirations, passions and ideas that arise during Uranus retrograde. You may start on a new path or work on
a new project during this time that feels exciting and life-changing. And it may indeed change your life for the better.
However, it doesn’t mean that this new project, relationship, home or path that you have taken on right now will be
forever. Again, you have to give it TIME, before you will know how things are going to unfold with this new purpose
or passion in the long-term.
Finally, during Uranus retrograde,
you may also find yourself re-engaging and RE-connecting back with old friends during this time. You may renew your
connections with causes, groups or communities that you have been out of touch with for awhile.
Sometimes it’s nice to revisit past connections,
especially if these connections & relationships represent shared values and shared history to you. This re-connection
may only be for a brief time and may end once Uranus goes back direct again. Then again, if it is something
that really feeds you on your quest for growth, perhaps the renewed connection will stay with you past the time of this retrograde.

Many Retrogrades at Once! (Summer-and Fall-of Retrogrades)
4:31 pm cdt
RETROGRADES AT ONCE-
THE SUMMER (AND FALL) OF RETROGRADES
By Rev. Dr. Psychic
Even though Mercury is now fully direct, we still have PLENTY of
retrogrades at the moment. To be more specific, at the moment I am writing this for you on 07/28/2021,
there are FIVE major heavenly bodies in retrograde. (Come August 19th, that number will increase to 6!)
if you are wondering why everything still seems to be moving so SLOWLY at the moment, or why unexpected
obstacles or challenges keep appearing, or why issues from the so-called past that you thought were already resolved keep
popping again, that’s why.
Mercury being fully direct now does help in terms of being able to think more clearly & access your ability
to get things done more efficiently. But Mercury alone can’t cancel out the effects of five other
retrograde planets combined.
The five planetary bodies that are currently in retrograde as of this writing (07/28/2021)
are Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto & Chiron. Uranus will also join in on this retrograde extravaganza
on August 19th.
THE CURRENT PLANETARY RETROGRADES
To help you better understand what this combination of retrogrades might mean for you,
here is a brief summary of what each of them signifies….
until Oct 18….Rules the signs of SAGITTARIUS & PISCES. Exalted ruler of Cancer.
signals a time of questioning & re-assessing one’s spiritual quest. The usual help that you receive
from the outside world is missing or reduced, and instead you must seek WITHIN for protection & help. A
time to call upon spiritual rather than material world help. Your faith and optimism may be tested during
During Jupiter retrograde, be wary of a tendency towards excess or self-righteousness.
You could tend to over-do it in one or more areas of life, or over-estimate your ability to get certain things done.
On the other hand, sometimes that feel-good, happy, abundant feeling is more difficult to achieve when Jupiter is in
retrograde. Jupiter has a connection with FAITH & hope, and sometimes when it’s retrograde, it
can feel as if you’ve lost all faith or positivity. Try to remember that this too shall pass, and
that eventually, brighter days will return again.
The retrograde of Jupiter can also impact travels, learning,
education, publishing & writing, and legal matters. There could be delays or set-backs in any of these
areas during Jupiter retrograde, and some of your plans in these areas may not go as you had hoped or may simply proceed more
slowly that you would have preferred.
SATURN retrograde until
Oct 10….Rules CAPRICORN
& AQUARIUS. Exalted ruler of Libra.
The only thing more challenging than Saturn
itself is Saturn in retrograde. After all, Saturn is known astrologically as the Lord of Karma.
This planet has been retrograde since late last May, and during this time it has been busy delivering many REALITY
CHECKS and set-backs. You are being reminded of your limitations, and perhaps, challenged to move beyond
For now, the only way out is through. Meaning, that in one
or more areas of life you will probably have to deal with increased responsibilities and limitations, and will need to develop
greater wisdom & maturity.
Areas that are most likely to be affected include health, family relationships,
housing, work, finances, and overall emotional & spiritual well-being. Don’t be one bit surprised
if family or friends (or even society) demands more of you during this time. Feeling overwhelmed or over-burdened
is common during Saturn retrograde.
Saturn in retrograde, it’s more important than ever to take care of your emotional & mental health, and to engage
in activities that bring you joy & feed your spirit.
Being more disciplined & organized will help you
to deal with your many challenges & responsibilities during this time.
Remember too that you can’t outrun karma. If something is
yours to deal with, then face it. (Also, if something is NOT yours to deal with, then let it go.
That too can be part of resolving karma.)
CHIRON retrograde until
Dec 19….Rules VIRGO.
(Or some say, Sagittarius.)
This one is classified as a minor planet or centaur.
More than any of the other retrogrades, this one will re-trigger painful past issues (especially form childhood) in
order to help bring your attention to the need for healing. You may feel like you are going back over old
emotional terrain again and having to back-track with issues that you thought were already healed.
Confusion can arise over what it means to be healthy & well and the steps that one needs to take to achieve
In mythology, Chiron was a master herbalist and healer. The retrograde
of his namesake planet may signal a time for you to reveal your own methods of healing, with an eye towards looking at a more
HOLISTIC approach that includes practices like yoga, energy healing, music, flower essences, diet & nutrition.
Also consider if there is a need for greater
RE-WILDING on your part. For Chiron was a centaur, or half-man and half-horse, indicating that connecting
with nature can help you to better realize your wholeness.
until Dec 1….Rules
PISCES. Exalted ruler of Aquarius.
The effects of Neptune’s retrograde may be more
subtle & subconscious than some of the others. (Unless of course you are a Pisces, or have Pisces otherwise
strong in your chart—then its effects will be quite pronounced.) For Neptune is so far away from
the earth and moves more slowly than most of the planets. And the slower a planet moves, the less obvious
its retrograde effects. With Neptune, the effects of its retrograde may or may not be obvious, but it will
affect you on a DEEPER level.
Neptune is the great DISSOLVER. Its retrograde
may wash away some ideal or aspect of life that you are clinging to dearly. But you may not have a choice
but to let go. For this energy is like a cleansing tidal wave that gradually moves across your inner being
and changes the land-scape of your life forever.
Neptune retrograde SOMETIMES
enhances intuition and psychic knowings. But then, that’s usually only for the people who are already
quite well-grounded and at ease with their own intuition. For all those others who are not well-grounded
and/or not at east with their intuition, this planetary retrograde may instead increase DELUSIONS of self-grandeur and a tendency
towards fantasy thinking.
Then again, Neptune’s retrograde
often has the effect of lifting the veil (so to speak) and causing you to see what your life (and the people & situations
in it) REALLY look like without the rose-colored glasses.
If there is an area of your life where you have been deluding yourself or getting by with false hope, you will soon need to
deal with the reality of the situation. (Especially now that Saturn is also in retrograde at the same time.)
of the magic & enchantment of life may be temporarily lost during Neptune retrograde. If you can, find
ways to reconnect back with the magic through music, dance, poetry, art or re-connecting with your spiritual or psychic side.
PLUTO retrograde until Oct 6….Rules SCORPIO. Exalted
ruler of Virgo or Leo.
Pluto is the great destroyer, purger and transformer. Its retrograde
can bring a welcome relief & respite from intense change and transformation in the outer world. For
instead of focusing on outer world change, during Pluto retrograde, one is to focus upon INNER world change & transformation.
There can be MUCH inner purging and emotional recycling that happens
during this time. This is a time for exploring & acknowledging what mysteries lie in the shadow of
the self. Get in touch with your subconscious desires & emotions, including your buried anger, rage,
insecurity and fears.
This doesn’t mean you have to let the inner dragons run your life. But
every so often, it’s good to look at what you have buried deep down inside. (If only so that it does
NOT run your life.)
Also, keep in mind too that there can be great POWER and ENERGY hidden deep
within the subconscious too. Your worldly power may be limited during this time. It’s
even possible that you may feel pushed down or bullied by larger tyrannical forces. This is a time of learning
to move through life from a place of INNER power, rather than relying on the outer world to make you feel empowered.
URANUS is not yet retrograde, but will be retrograde Aug 19 2021 to Jan 18 2022….Rules AQUARIUS. Exalted
ruler of Scorpio.
Since this one is not quite yet retrograde,
I will cover its influence in a future Cosmic Newsletter or blog post.
In the meantime, let me just say that when Uranus goes retrograde, it is a time to take
a break from being a rebel or trying to create change or disruptions in the outer world. It is more a time
of focusing on INNER change, as well as a time to look at how you can make changes sensibly, slowly, and more logically.
THE PERSONAL & COLLECTIVE RETROGRADE EFFECT
When a planet goes retrograde, it has a collective influence on all of us who live in the earth dimension.
But it also has a personal effect too, based on how that retrograde planet interacts with the position of
your birth chart planets. The more planets in your birth chart that are activated by a transiting retrograde
planet, the stronger its retrograde effect will be upon you.
But even if a retrograde planet
isn’t making ANY exact aspects to any of your birth chart planets, you will still be subject to its influence somewhat.
For while a planet is retrograde, it will slowly move through a certain house in your birth chart and activate the
specific areas of life that are connected with that house.
(For example, retrograde
Saturn in your house of health, sickness, healing, and work will likely bring challenges in these areas of life, even if it
is not aspecting any natal planets for you.)
Also keep in mind
that each of these planets currently in retrograde have certain, specific signs that they are said to rule over. (Listed in the descriptions above.) And when the ruling planet for your sign is retrograde, you are more
likely to feel the effects of that retrograde quite strongly.
This is true not only if you have that sign as your sun sign, but if you have any important points or planets ANY WHERE
in your chart in the sign that is ruled by the retrograde planet.
With five major heavenly
bodies currently in retrograde (and one more soon to follow), there are MANY people being impacted by these retrogrades in
a significant way.
FOLLOW THROUGH & FIND CLOSURE
This preponderance of retrogrades will continue throughout the entire summer into fall. These energies will continue to nudge you to slow down and move through life more carefully and deliberately. It’s time to utilize discernment & inner wisdom in making decisions and taking actions.
You will be more productive (and happier too) during this time
of many retrogrades when you lean into your more feminine, receptive, accepting & YIN-based side.
This is a wonderful time for you to look more closely at where there is a need for further
healing, growth, and adjustments in your life.
It is a time where you are called to work within your
existing life situation to improve it.
completions, and getting closure will continue to be favored from this point onward into and through October.
New beginnings are not as easy right now, but can be possible, if (and ONLY if) you are willing to first deal with
any unresolved karma that you have that might be holding you back. In whatever area it is that you are
hoping to have a new beginning, you will first need to fully RESOLVE what you need to deal with before moving forward into
Remember too that OTHER people have karma as well.
This means that whenever your situation
overlaps with the decisions or situations of others, then you may also have to wait for THEM to finish up resolving their
karma, even if you have already dealt with your own personal issues.
(Case in point:
Such as in the purchasing of a new home. You may need to wait for the new owners to clear out, or for the house to
have some breathing room before new people can come in.)
That being said, you can’t complete other people’s
karma for them! Truly, unless you are an incarnated bodhisattva, you are only here to deal with your OWN
karma…not someone else’s. Something to keep in mind in the months ahead.
One of the greatest obstacles to spiritual growth between now & the end of October will be the tendency to let
yourself get so entangled in other people’s karma that you neglect dealing with your own business.
Remember that you can best serve yourself, others, and the Universe, by first dealing
with your OWN issues and resolving your OWN karma.
Not sure where to start with this? Ask
your inner psychic, intuition, spirit guides, ancestors or angels to show you the way. Ask, and then listen.
If needed, be patient, and wait for a sign, message, or feeling to lead the way. Ask the Universe
to show you what you MOST need to be focusing on resolving or dealing with at this moment. And then get
busy following that lead!
Psychic Benefit of Many Retrogrades at Once

can help open up a space for delving deeper into the liminal spaces of psychic awareness. Times when
there are many retrogrades simultaneously (such as there are now) are excellent periods for re-connecting back with your psychic
self & cultivating your own intuitive & psychic abilities.
Is it time to do that Tarot
or Rune reading for yourself, or check back in with your astrology chart? Or perhaps it is time to get
a reading with your favorite astrologer, psychic or card or rune reader. Either way, now is a definitely
a time to tap into the wisdom of the cosmos to help guide your path, for during times like these, we must be guided by the
INNER vision. (And not outer world appearances, which can be SO very deceptive right now.)

Retrogrades are all about seeking wisdom from
WITHIN and from your spirit teacher, angels, and guides. Therefore, be careful about spending too much
time looking at so-called news during these cycles. If you want to know what is REALLY going on with a
particular issue in your life (or even world event) during one of these multi-retrograde cycles, then consult your inner psychic
and guides, or ask your divination tool.
THE VEILS ARE THINNING
The more retrogrades there are,
the thinner the veils between the different worlds & dimensions. Thus, it can be easier to access your
connection with your spirit guides, ancestors, and angels during a time of many retrogrades—but only if you do not BLOCK
the communication by letting yourself be dragged down into emotional overwhelm or static.
During times like these, it is important to allow yourself to feel your emotions without attaching to them or getting
stuck in them. Practices such as meditation, drumming, breath-work, yoga & trance-work are key right
now to keeping the doorways of spiritual communication open.
Entering into peace and calm will also
help you to be more resilient and resourceful in dealing with the challenges that you meet along this path of murky retrogrades.
When the storms are brewing in the outside world, one must seek the peace within,
in the inner temple.

New Moon Gemini Solar Eclipse (June 10 2021)
2:39 pm cdt
SHIFTS IN COMMUNICATION & MENTAL PATTERNS
By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia Killion
Last Updated & Revised: June 22nd 2021
Cosmic & Psychic Friends, hello there and
welcome to the new cycle of the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini!
This new moon was exact on Thursday June 10th at 5:53 am Central USA daylight time. The
new moon usually triggers the time of new beginnings & rebirth for the month. But this wasn’t
just any ordinary new moon, for this one was a solar eclipse too. You might feel as if you are re-emerging
and breaking through inertia & stagnation, just as you usually would with ANY new moon. However,
the presence of the solar eclipse here is also simultaneously bringing up unresolved issues and past situations (aka KARMA)
to be healed & released.
Usually, the new moon kicks off a one-month cycle focused on new beginnings
& growth in the sign that it is in. However, a SOLAR ECLIPSE new moon usually has a cycle of about SIX MONTHS, because
its influence extends all the way until the NEXT solar eclipse. (Which in this case, will be on December 4th.)
That being said, you usually feel the energy & effects of a solar eclipse most strongly for about two weeks before and
up to 4-6 weeks after. So that means that although this cycle is in effect all the way up until around December, you
will likely respond most strongly to these energies from now up until July 8th-July 22nd.
Are you wondering what signs will be most STRONGLY affected by this current eclipse
cycle? Since this solar eclipse was at 19 degrees Gemini, you might feel it quite powerfully
if you have natal points or planets in the signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces. (Especially
if these birth planets are in the range of 15-23 degrees of any of those signs.)
Also, if you have birth points at 17-21 degrees in ANY sign, you
will probably experience some kind of surge of energy from this shift during the next few weeks.
THIS ECLIPSE CYCLE CAN BRING ABOUT
IN THE MIND….
Gemini is connected to COMMUNICATION, LEARNING, & THE MIND. Most likely,
this eclipse will activate situations & karma that somehow revolve around these themes. For example, how can you
better communicate with & interact with the people (and creatures & plants) in your environment? Do you need
to learn to speak (or communicate) differently in order to be better understood?
Perhaps the issue is simply learning to speak up when needed. Then again, maybe more
LISTENING is needed. Gemini is more commonly known as a talker, but it can just as easily become a receptive mirror
of listening for others.
Communication can go so much deeper than
words that are spoken or written. For example, what kind of VIBES do you get when you are talking with a certain person
or listening to them speak? What kind of ENERGY do you sense when you read a social media post or listen to a certain
video or podcast?
Also, when you are TRIGGERED by what
someone says or writes, what does that say about YOUR internal mental state or beliefs?
Now is a good time for tuning into your inner self and evaluating your inner beliefs and
self-talk. What kind of inner dialogue is playing in the background of your life? And is this inner dialogue kind,
compassionate, and loving? Or at least, helpful & empowering? Or is your inner dialogue harming yourself or
others? Perhaps it’s time to make a CHANGE in your inner dialogue and self-talk.
It’s also time to go deeper in looking at your mental patterns. A mental pattern
is more than just an inner belief or idea. This is a belief that has internalized so deeply that you REPEAT it over
and over again. Your mental patterns are part of your BASELINE for how you react or respond to the world. This
is why it is sometime said that your thoughts create your reality. It’s not so much every random thought you think
that shapes your reality, but rather, your deepest ingrained MENTAL PATTERNS are usually what drives your behavior, thus affecting
the quality and outcome of your life.
your mental patterns serving you in a positive way? And are these mental patterns of your own choosing, OR are they
something that has arisen in you subconsciously because of past trauma? It may be time to do some work with understanding
WHERE your mental patterns came from, and how they were formed. Perhaps it is also time to work on creating NEW mental
patterns & habits that serve you better.
TECH WORLD ISSUES
Gemini might be considered a light & airy sign, but it also has
a practical and pragmatic side too. In fact, the ruling planet of Gemini (Mercury) is said to have powerful
influence over business & commerce of all kinds. So you might find yourself looking for ways to get more organized
or efficient in your business, household or work around the time of this eclipse.
In particular, you might seek out information
or classes relating to scheduling, organization, or communication. You may also find that it is time to start dealing
with important paperwork, legal documents or even returns that you had previously been putting off doing. Writing
is also ruled by Gemini, so you may feel the need to pick back up with (or start) journaling or blogging between now and December.
Gemini is also pretty tech and appliance orientated too. Gemini
loves its gadgets! So don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to upgrade tech equipment, appliances or
even vehicles in the next month or two. But be careful that the tech doesn’t become too much of a distraction,
as having the tech (or gadget) to do something is NOT the same as actually getting something done.
Speaking of distractions….Gemini can be one of the most easily scattered & distracted
signs of all. After all, it’s the first of the Air signs. Gemini is great at bringing in that first blast of fresh
air with new ideas & new perspectives. However, it’s easy to scatter one’s energies when under the influence
of Gemini. So stay mindful & aware of what your priorities are.
THIS ECLIPSE CAN ACT LIKE A RETROGRADE
Keep in mind that all eclipses are similar to retrogrades, in that eclipses activate and
stir up karma, and bring lingering past issues to the forefront. So you may find yourself going back over old ground
around the time of this eclipse.
necessarily have to be unpleasant, as sometimes a walk down memory lane can be just what you need to stimulate NEW ideas and
fresh perspectives. Then again, if painful aspects of your past are being re-activated by this eclipse, well, it will
be painful at times. Whatever your experience is, the important thing is to not resist the feelings or experiences
that come up, but instead to open yourself to what is happening and embrace the lesson.
What happens for you personally around this CURRENT solar eclipse in Gemini may also be connected
to ANOTHER eclipse cycle that happened about 6 months ago, back on November 30th 2020. That was when we had the full
moon LUNAR eclipse in Gemini. A lunar eclipse is quite a bit different than a solar eclipse, yet there is still a sense
that these two moments in time are both connected through the eclipse quality.
Think about what was happening in your life around the end of 2020 (or what you were hoping
to accomplish then), as this might give you clues to where you can experience a new beginning and rebirth now.
Cosmic Love & Bright Blessings,
Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion (Psychic Cynthia)
