ALL OUTER PLANETS NOW RETROGRADEThe Sun is now in its most distant proximity to all outer planets beyond Jupiter. From here on earth, ♄, ♅, ♆, ♇ (including Chiron and Eris) all appear to be moving in retrograde. These are the gods of karma, healing, disruption, spiritualisation and transformation, all working to take us back into the recent events of our lives for some ‘inner workshop activity’.Essentially, these energies will focus on areas in our lives where we have had to make phenomenal shifts in our awareness.
We have no option but to do the necessary work on our inner landscape now. We must go bravely look within and carefully review, reappraise, release, reconstruct and rebirth the previously unfathomable aspects of our psyche. As uncomfortable and often painful as this process is, we have no option but to revisit recent critical events, sit with them until we understand the nature of their crises upon our lives, and hopefully, as each planet turns direct over the next 6 months, make the peace and walk away with a sense of closure.
Uranus now joins the ℞ fold (until January ’18), forcing us to look at where we have felt most constrained and claustrophobic and how we have tended to abruptly bust out of our perceived cage. Was it necessary to smash everything and run, or could we have perhaps executed our break for freedom in ways that made more sense, especially for those who did not see any bizarre behaviour coming.
As Uranus℞ holds a tight semisquare to Neptune℞ (Aug-Sep) there can be some confusion or deception about why it is that our activity has been so disruptive and unsettling during the first half of this year. It may not be entirely obvious for months, perhaps years, but we are subliminally sabotaging our reality – defiantly undermining it so that it doesn’t ever hope to confine or constrict our spirit from going to places that are genuinely soothing and liberating to our soul.
Caution to stay grounded in our backtracking through this very murky, seemingly inexplicable passage of recent events. There are no shortcuts or bypasses to doing the real spirit work.

THIS WEEKEND: SUN/MARS sqq SATURNIf you come to the realisation that your usual 3D world is progressively letting you down,
wearing you down,
dragging you down,
yet refusing to cut you any slack;
If you feel more and more insulted and affronted
by not having your demands met as anticipated…
…then time to smarten up a little.
Putting up with crap conditions,
doing a shitty job
for ever-diminishing returns
is a POOR way to rebel at society.
Allowing your fundamental freedoms to be gradually taken away from you
is a POOR way of resisting
against being forced to fit into the mould.
Criticising authority figures on social media
is a POOR way to take any action.
When the Sun/Mars & Saturn meet,
we feel like we’re at the end of our tether.
Time to draw the line.
See who is trying to manipulate others
purely out of selfish motives for power.
Frustration, separation and fear abounds.
And once again, you have to decide whether you’re with them or agin?
See? See what they force you to do?
Where does all this separation end?
When do we stop taking sides and come back to our centre?
We’re nearly at the melting point here. These eclipses are nearly upon us. A massive intervention is necessary. Lighten up. Have the wisdom and strength to abandon any futile struggle before it completely tears you apart.
Thursday, 27 July – SUN/MARS conjunction at 04°♌13 (combust)
As we have been observing now for the past week or so, the Mars (action) passage behind the Sun (authority) makes us sensitive to those trying to put light on the way we do things, how we act. In an attempt to assert ourselves, we go too far – makes us look stupid or try-hard.
The Sun’s glare overpowers Mars, and it will be weeks before we will see him in his own right again. This is the furthest Mars gets from earth, and as the Sun blinds his efforts, he also purifies his angry fire to a place of humility…. Due to the relatively high speed of Mars this ☉/♂ conjunction, which was a strong feature of the New Moon will also be featured in both the Lunar/Solar eclipses.
Relax. Nothing to prove…

How does it all affect your sign?
NEW MOON MESSAGES and INTENTIONS
Don’t be a fool. Nothing anybody ever says has anything to do with you at all. It’s all about themselves, really. What they won’t stand for, and what they will not tolerate, and what they hate… that’s just a dead giveaway about who they are and what they are not ready to accept about themselves. God bless this Trump-era for exposing humanity for all its shaky, self-conscious indignation and hypocrisy.
How quick you are to listen to others’ opinions; how likely you are to take these on board to be about you, tells us everything about how flimsy your ego complex is: Ready to buy into what others are saying about you and eager to react in vexation and offense…
When you get all puffy and react – especially angrily, you are only giving others the very satisfaction they desire. Arguing or getting all defensive, becoming outraged or angrily refusing to modify your behaviour shows how feeble your inner sense of self really is.
Instead of getting all worked up over what others are saying about you, check in with yourself. Are you in touch with your in-OK-ness? If so, let others think whatever they like. Let them have their opinions; their judgments. They don’t know you. In truth, they barely even know themselves. If they find you so repugnant or threatening, let them work on that, either through some fair play against you (i call it dancing), or if they must, let them go away and practice on their own a little.
Those who know themselves are not there to fight with you. They are there to let you be you; to enjoy you and to love you being you. Those who know themselves are ready to know you; to co-operate and to co-create with you.
Quit being so self-conscious.
Be conscious of your Self.
Create sacred space.
Meditate your way.
Wait… don’t rush things.
Allow any discordant or gunky psychic energy to dissipate. Intuitions will suddenly come to your higher self. Not only will you be guided on the best course of action to take, the course of your life will take a quick turn.
