As we enter the new year on the Gregorian calendar, we have three planets leaving their retrograde: Mercury, Jupiter and at the end of the month, Uranus.
Retrograde makes planets stronger, which does not mean better.
When in retrograde, planets become closer to Earth and therefore become more powerful in giving results. The houses that they own will also become weaker and so it's always good to know what is happening in your chart.
As we know by now, Mercury in retrograde makes life busier and brings in a scrambled energy. Mercury signifies all forms of communication, including electronics. Computer glitches are more frequent during this time.
Have you noticed in recent weeks that you keep missing those green lights while driving?
Or have you become clumsier, dropping things or misplacing them? Mercury will get clear after the first week of January. Phew!
With Jupiter, the planet of expansion that signifies moving forward, you might have felt that many of your plans and projects were stuck in the mud during these last four months of its retrograde. This will change.
Now, Uranus is another story. Being the higher octave of Mercury, it has its own ideas.
Uranus is the planet known for shocks and surprises, but it becomes inhibited during its five-month retrograde period.
On the other hand, when this planet goes direct, we can experience ideas and events that are both brilliant and disturbing.
Uranus signifies shocking changes, but these changes are meant to free us; Uranus is the planet that brings about freedom but often there is a price for us pay! No pain no gain!
We will have a Uranus-Jupiter conjunction in a few months’ time. This can be pretty exciting for speculation and starting anew. Perhaps you will be ready to make a move and break free of this ridiculous society, which is becoming more insane by the day. It should be a good time to cash in!
But that is still some time away, so stay tuned!
In this new year of 2024, we shall have a great beginning with all planets going into direct motion. Even if they are an optical illusion, retrogrades still cause energetic shifts in our lives and emotions.
With no retrogrades in sight for a few months, we have an opportunity to make significant changes in our lives, this is a wonderful opportunity to manifest much that we desire, and grow exponentially.
However, the Pluto conjunct Pluto that has been occurring in the USA chart is huge.
This transit will continue to affect us until the cleanup occurs, and it looks to be coming to a head this year.
Pluto last conjoined natal Pluto in the USA chart in 1776, and that was the time for independence, but it took many years for it to happen.
Once again, this seems to be the case.
Is history repeating itself? Or are the planets repeating their transits? It seems to be both.
What occurs in the USA will have a domino effect worldwide.
The swamp needs to be drained before any changes occur, and it's a mighty big swamp which covers our Earth's surface.
Where have we heard that statement before and from who?
May you take the reins into your own hands and move forward.
A good new years resolution would be to take the reins on your journey for 2024 and to ignore the clowns in the mainstream media who call themselves reporters!
Welcome to 2024, Everyone!
Please do book a private reading with me if you'd like to see how your own planets are affected during these tumultuous times.
