Today it happened at 11:53 am (est) and 4:18 pm(est), respectively. I wonder who noticed the shift in energy? Everything will start to come out now, if it hasn’t already, and people will finally deal with all the muck these retrogrades, especially the Venus one, brought up. Energy will be released from people, maybe in a brash and inconsiderate way, since we have both mercury and mars in Sagittarius.
It is interesting to me that both planets turned direct within hours of one another. Both planets are considered “benefics” which means they are considered a good and gracious influence, and they’ve both been going backwards lately, turning our love lives, finances, and worlds upside down. So, there’s been quite a shift, but they’re still moving slowly and they’re still traversing the degrees they retrograded, so all of the muck that was brought up during both retrogrades is being covered — again! We’re not quite out of the woods yet, but things are moving in the right direction now. What this means is that we are going to be back in late September in regards to the issues that Venus brought up with her retrograde station and look back to the end of June for Jupiter. Those issues will be be in your world again so you can tie up loose ends. We will finally clear all of that ground on December 21 for venus and January 23rd for Jupiter. THEN it will be over. You might want to hold off on getting a new hairstyle or anything venus-related until after venus passes the station degree.
Aside from the running theme of relationships, we have a theme in these charts of directness versus diplomacy. We have the moon in blunt aries and mercury and mars in Sagittarius while we have venus and saturn in Libra. Adding to this theme is venus quincunx, which means at odds with, uranus, who wants to be a rebel and say what he wants to say. We know venus in libra doesn’t want this, she wants peace at all costs. So it’s a tenuous and fine line we’re walking.
Adding to all of that, the sun, pluto, North Node, and venus all disposit to libra while the rest of the planets — yes, the rest of the planets — all disposit to neptune and uranus, who are in mutual reception, which means they act like they are related to each other. So, we’re going to have people either being very diplomatic so as not to disturb the peace or people saying whatever they want to without thinking first (sagittarius and uranus) and being evasive or deceptive on top if it all (neptune)! People will confuse the hell outta’ you, because some will act out ALL of these tactics in short shrift and almost seem bipolar. Which reminds me, if you or someone you know is bipolar, look for the next few weeks to be a flare-up for them.
I still think people are going to be putting on a facade with all of this energy, especially all the neptune influences going on right now, so be alert for deception and lies and people pretending to be someone they aren’t. Make sure that new romantic interest (or ex who returned with the retrograde) is REALLY single. Take things slowly.
The good news is that neptune and uranus can bring about healing. Also good news is that the planets in sag will expose frauds and so will jupiter turning direct. Jupiter hates a liar. People will mess up, blurt out, and other blunders-that-get-people-caught actions.
We should be starting to see the effects of the new moon I wrote about. It will culminate at the full moon this weekend. I’m starting to see news stories reflecting what I wrote. The family murdered, just so a sick psychopath could “have” a 13 year old girl struck me as apropos. So did the PR agent in Hollywood tragically murdered after a movie premiere. Both worthy of Lifetime Movies. I wish I had been wrong.
