The Cosmic Medicine of Retrograde Planets
Mercury, the planet of Communication went direct on Nov 3 (election day), though we are still feeling the effect as it moves out of the retrograde shadow.
Mars, the fiery planet of energy (tension, conflict) goes direct on Nov 13. Which means there may still be lots of potent ‘going back over fired up energy’ happening in our world at large.
Neptune is still retrograde in Pisces until Nov 27 meaning there is still time to go back over those mystical dreams and alternative realities where we can find some clarity and real guidance in the spirit world.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer, will remain retrograde in Aries until December; meaning we have that pioneer energy of Aries taking us back to the original wounding, where we may finally reset the point of reference and clear the way forward.
Uranus goes beyond all that and will be retrograde in the sign of Taurus until January! This planet is all about breaking forms, sudden unexpected changes and unpredictable experiences; and Taurus the Bull has the ability to break through and complete this task.
To ponder these in heyoka way, I would say the wounded healer is paying attention, making adjustments and opening her eyes to see that by rolling with the punches, a new way is opening up; a way that is inspired by our present day dreams and visions yet is deeply rooted in going back to remember, where this dream and vision once originated. We have the energy of the Bull breaking thru the old paradigms (china shop) and the power of the ancient/future dream leading the wounded healer on to victory.
As we are being freed from what once held us back, we come together to create a new level of personal vision and new possibilities from which to choose.
(We really can’t make this stuff up, which is why I love tuning into it as it helps ‘explain’ things to me)
