I thought this should have it's own thread - not so we can worry and fret, but so we can fall into a beautiful sync with these planetary cycles.
Finally, in 2019 we will have only three Mercury retrograde periods. There are often four a year, so this means communications will be flowing without quite as many snafus. Granted, those snafus can work entirely in our favor.
To understand retrograde cycles, check out the GVA Tutorial at Youtube - Retrograde Planets of Mercury and Beyond:
Jupiter will retrograde once and the outer planets, from Saturn to Pluto, will all have their Rx times. Check the details, degrees and shadow zones here. We'll be discussing these on the Forum and GVA Calls in 2019.
March 05 – Mercury retrograde 29° Pisces - March 28th - 16 Pisces April 10 – Jupiter retrograde 24° Sagittarius - August 11th - 14 Sagittarius April 24 – Pluto retrograde 23° Capricorn - October 2nd - 20 Capricorn April 29 – Saturn retrograde 20° Capricorn - September 18th - 13 Capricorn June 21 – Neptune retrograde 18° Pisces - November 27th - 15 Pisces July 07 – Mercury retrograde 04° Leo - July 31st - 23 Cancer August 11 – Uranus retrograde 06° Taurus - January 10th - 2 Taurus October 31 – Mercury retrograde 27° Scorpio - November 20th - 11 Scorpio
Oh my...Mercury retrograde focuses even more energy into the focal point of my kite! Feedback welcomed!
Here's the link to the March Mercury Rx for those who want to see the path Mercury takes. It sure does light up some of your chart patterns - The Grand Trine of Saturn - Neptune - MC, for one, and the T-Square of Sun/Venus - Saturn - Uranus/Pluto.
All from the 5th/6th house.
I'd be tuning into career and creativity, checking in to see if you are on the path that lights you up. And, I would be listening to the body big time to better understand what's right in your life, or maybe a little log-jammed.
With so much activated, I'd be finding ways to slow down and tune in.
The inner planet Rx is what we want to look at so basically Mercury as Venus and Mars are direct all of 2019. Still, it might be fun to look at any Rx in the solar return chart.
I love how Joanne Wickenburg puts it: All retrograde planets are closer to Earth than they are at any other times in their orbits.
Because they are so near to us during these times they require you to become more aware of how you are operating in your life, both internally and externally. In general, they invite you to look more deeply into what that planet really means to you.
Looking at my Solar Return for 2019, I'll have Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto Rx. Might explore that a bit, even though they aren't inner planets.
Welcome back! Feel free to chat to anyone online with you, or simply shout out your intentions and affirmations. .
Kim: My general I am statement for letting go of 'something' on the lunar eclipse - "I am worry free!"

jinny: The full moon and eclipse only hours away.... I've been trying to come up with a way to say what I release without naming something to not say. Okay. All the beliefs that have interfered with my feeling good are released!! Fly! Fly away beliefs! Tee hee

Donna: Since the lunar eclipse, I am in a decluttering and cleaning phase. Shredding documents and cleaning file cabinet. Kim, could you please remove my hand drawn paper Donna Planetary Game of Thrones from the Align With the Stars Gallery. Thank you 😊

Kim: Good questions. In a word, ENERGETIC!

Donna: Woo hoo is my description...feeling Mercury Rx and connection to in-person friends isn't clicking as usual...going with it rather than push or force it. Love (not romantic) synchronicities are wild right now..connections while out hiking on trails.

Donna: Uranus in ♉️...the "Great Awakener"...activated in my life...such aliveness that feels so powerful so amazing. A bit scary at times when I resist. That image in ASTRO FLASH of dog inShaking by Iris Scott love it! Not worrying as much as what others think
Mar 7, 2019 18:27:10 GMT
Kim: I think the next seven year will be extraordinary, especially for Taureans. Leverage that!
Mar 9, 2019 6:39:46 GMT
Donna: 2:00 a.m. MST... awake unable to go back to sleep...especially appreciate this forum. I can leisurely read and ponder until I fall back to sleep. 😴
Mar 9, 2019 9:14:53 GMT
Donna: This taurean has read Kim’s post on Uranus “The Great Awakener”...excited to experience that 7 years of extraordinary with EVERYONE! 💚

Mar 11, 2019 22:02:25 GMT
Kim: Mercury Rx can be ahead of time too!
