Dana Mrkich > Uranus Direct

This week Uranus, planet of the unexpected, has been what's called 'stationary direct'. This is the time at the end of a retrograde period where a planet prepares for forward motion again.

Conjunct Pluto as it stations retrograde in Capricorn, this is an incisive Mercury with little patience for subjectivity, or sensitivity for that matter!

In the presence of Chiron we encounter the issue of healing. When retrograde, Chiron asks what it means to us, what we foresee when we contemplate personal healing and how we view those aspects of our self we consider in need of ‘repair’.

Neptune retrograde is many things: unity with the divine, flight into unreality, immersion in love, avoidance through self-deception and compassionate repose. It is both our return to sacred source and all we do to avoid the stark terrain we must sometimes cross to get there.

Hello friends. I didn’t even know where to start with this one at first, as there’s been so much going on. Mars and Pluto Retrogrades generally take no prisoners, and this time around that’s definitely true.

Jupiter went direct on Monday, and more and more every day this week we have felt him picking up speed, brushing off the dust that gathered from a slower pace.

For the first time in a decade, we have 5 planets retrograde at the same time. You might be reading a lot about how this time is all about pausing and not being able to get much done, but actually, from a Soul perspective, this is going to be a hugely productive time.

While the retrograde movement of planets is part of their natural rhythm, it can create a lot of havoc in our lives as our normal and habitual future-focused rush through life gets paused so we have to stop and assess our situation.

Awakening to Freedom
Jupiter stations retrograde in the 24th degree of Virgo at 3:30 a.m. UT on 8th January. Conjunct the Moon’s North Node as it does so, it reminds us that only by realising our true nature amidst all of life’s experiences can we honour the gift and responsibility of awakening.

Working with Saturn can help you build and maintain a stable, strong foundation that is actually capable of containing the immense power of Scorpio.

Just a heads up: Uranus stationed retrograde in the past few hours. It’s gotten a bit lost in the jubilation over Saturn stationing direct the day before, but it’s extremely important and we need to take note!!

During all that intensity last month Pluto quietly stationed in the 14th degree of Capricorn to begin its current retrograde passage. Most people know Pluto to be a planet of immense transformation alongside deep suffering, and in its on-going square to Pluto it reminds us that it is often the change we most resist which liberates us the most once done and dusted!

Today Jupiter begins its annual retrograde journey, this time through the sign of Cancer. The usual enthusiasm and outward thrust of Jupiterian energy turns inward at this point and we may find certain projects and plans slowing down in their development and progress.

The Sun in Cancer (6/21 - 7/22) *Illuminates & Infuses* your Internal/Inner Emotional Nature, connecting you to Source Energy and activating the *Annual* Check-In with your gut-level feelings.

Today Chiron in Pisces, Mars in Gemini and the North Node in Scorpio join forces until 25th. Chiron leads the way in this one, which is particularly significant as it has only just turned retrograde (see yesterday’s post for info about that).
