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. .
Donna: Hi Paua I love your Mercury Rx story! Congrats on your publishing company. Would like to read the story of the indigenous elder. Still amazed at the phrase they “sung me”

Kim: The notion of being 'sung' or singing someone would make a really cool call, exploring its relationship to law of attraction (and that challenging question of manifesting 'for other people'). Who's keen?

Kim: Manifesting with the astrology of Spirit is live!
Jan 19, 2020 20:36:07 GMT
Kim: For those taking the Astrology of Spirit course, watch the call thread. My internet is out as of Sunday night so it may be postponed. Thanks!

scorpiorising13: Hi Kim .. I've been thinking of you; have the fires been tamed in your area? Tough to tell via the news; and friends who were in Australia weren't affected, thank goodness. I hope you and your fam are safe
Jan 27, 2020 15:18:05 GMT
Kim: We're in a so far safe zone, next to the sea, which helps. There has been some rain... And my internet is back! Thanks for asking scorpiorising13

scorpiorising13: Just read your Mercury retro check-in recommendation. This will go over the 5-planet stellium in my 4th house - Saturn(Aqu), Mercury, Mars, Sun, Chiron (all Pis). All near my IC and opposing Uranus & Pluto -- help!
Feb 1, 2020 17:54:19 GMT
Kim: That could be a good opportunity to renew your core values, one for each of those planets in Pisces! Eyes for the gifts!
Feb 3, 2020 2:32:05 GMT
Kim: What a great call today. Thanks everyone for joining in!
Feb 12, 2020 2:31:06 GMT
Kim: Dark Moon everyone. Rest, restore, reflect. Right?
Feb 22, 2020 20:57:47 GMT
Kim: Happy New Moon in Pisces! YAY!

Donna: So appreciated the live call yesterday! Connecting with others “Manifesting with the Astrology or Spirit - Mars, Jupiter, Saturn conjunction in Aquarius” was both meaningful and amusing! 💗🤍💚
Mar 19, 2020 2:12:33 GMT
Kim: It was great to have you there, Donna! 💗💚💗💚💗💚
Mar 21, 2020 22:12:46 GMT
Donna: “No longer tilling the earth of Capricorn, Saturn in Aquarius builds a bridge connecting higher guidance to our everyday lives. Be ready for a wealth of strong, visionary, concrete and practical innovations in your life, coming straight from Source.”
Mar 22, 2020 21:30:37 GMT
Donna: “And it’s there for the next 2.5 years.” I just about went into orbit with excitement when I read this! ☺️ I am so appreciative of this guidance and especially right now. 💗🤍💚
Mar 22, 2020 21:33:49 GMT
Kim: Just about to jump on our Mars. Jupiter & Saturn into Aquarius followup call. See you there!
