Reminder-New Moon in Libra means time to set intentions for next 6 months


Annual New Moon

in Libra Cycle

Means Time to Set

Goals & Intentions

for Next 6 Months Ahead


By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia




In addition to the recent full moon in Aries, and Mercury having just gone direct, we are also still in the Libra New Moon cycle up until November 4th.  This is one of the most important new moon cycles of the entire astrological year, as it occurs close to the Fall Equinox, which amplifies & extends the effects of any goals or intentions that are set during this New Moon cycle.  


This Libra new moon cycle ahead is definitely a time for moving and shaking and making major decisions in one or more areas of your life.  In fact, now would be a good time for planting seeds & setting intentions for what it is you would like to see come to fruition in your life for the NEXT 6 MONTHS AHEAD, between now & Mid-march 2022.


   Let me emphasize again here that the combined vibrations of the Libra new moon cycle, Aries full moon cycle, and recently passed Equinox are adding MUCH more energy & weight to any seeds you choose to plant right now or any new beginnings you choose to plan for or undertake. 


To enjoy this (temporary) extra dose of Universal support, you can set your goals & intentions for progress & growth in ANY realms of areas of life that you would like.  However, you will enjoy even MORE assistance from the

Universe at this time when you lean into the energies of Libra and choose to focus on one or more areas of life associated with Libra….


Libra is primarily associated with RELATIONSHIPS of all kind, including personal, professional and business-related relationships.  Through its connection with its opposite sign Aries, Libra is also connected with balancing all other kinds of relationships with the need to have a good & healthy relationship with the SELF.


(For Libra is the sign of questing & seeking for balance and harmony in all areas of life, but especially in regards to RELATIONSHIPS.)


    To best align with these powerful energies over the course of the next 6 months, think about how you can be more giving & sharing with others, while also developing a deeper sense of being in connection with your

truest self. 


   This last part is very important—for if you are only giving to others in ways that make you feel dis-connected from your true self, it is not giving, but is instead a form of slavery and self-immolation.


     Libra is associated with the balancing, weighing and reviewing of past actions and karma. Libra is not the balanced sign, but rather, it is the sign of BALANCING and RE-BALANCING.  


With Libra, there is a tendency to swing from one extreme to the others (like the old-fashioned balancing scales).  Yet the karmic mission of Libra is to continually seek for and discover (and re-discover) the most perfect sense of balance & integration that it can inlife.


During this annual time of New Moon in Libra cycle, we all have an opportunity to review our lives and seek for a greater sense of balance and integration.  Now is the time to set your goals and intentions for the next 6 months ahead, with a clear eye as to how you will feed & improve relationships, as well as achieve greater balance in the professional, career, and other realms of life.

New Moon in Virgo Cycle (from Sept 6 to Oct 6 2021)



Time to Organize, Cleanse,

& Get Back On Track Again

Reprinted from Cosmic Newsletter

published/sent September 6th, 2021

By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia Killion




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.

HOWEVER…Keep in 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. 

Please continue reading below for more info.


Video Forecast 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-

A 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 October 6th. 

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 few weeks!

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.

Sometimes Virgo 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 in life. 

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.



(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 new beginnings. 

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.





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.


In 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.)






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 at once.


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 cycle ahead!

Uranus Retrograde-Rest & Regroup, Enough with the Distractions!

Uranus Retrograde

Enough with 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 natal chart. 


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 energy cycle.




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 months.


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….




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. 


This doesn’t 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.






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 along. 


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 guru.





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. 


Working in 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)



By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia Killion



Saturn and Jupiter 


     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!)

  So 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.



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….


JUPITER retrograde until Oct 18.Rules the signs of SAGITTARIUS & PISCES.  Exalted ruler of Cancer.

     This 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 this time. 

    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 them. 

    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. 

    With 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 health. 

   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.


NEPTUNE retrograde 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.)

   Some 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.



     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.



     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. 

   Endings, 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 the new.

   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



By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia



     Dealing with multiple retrogrades at once can literally feel like a DRAG.  Meaning, it tends to slow us down (both personally & collectively) and generates delays and set-backs. 

     There can be great frustration when you have to keep going back over the same ground and dealing with the same situations again, situations that you THOUGHT were resolved, but now discover that you still need to work some more on these situations & areas of life.   

     That being said, it’s not all bad having many planets retrograde at once, especially for those of us on the spiritual psychic path. 

     Retrogrades 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.)

   If you can, spend time DAILY working with & connecting with your preferred divination tool during times of many simultaneous retrogrades. 

     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 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.
