We’re all familiar with Mercury retrograde but what happens when 5 other planets join in as well? You heard that right. The month of June has brought on SIX PLANETS IN RETROGRADE!
So we have, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all causing havoc on our lives and merged with the eclipses just adds to it all.
Just kidding, kinda.
The cosmos are asking that we take time to dig deep within and truly do some self-work. If you’ve been feeling emotional, irritable, or just completely lost in general… You’re definitely not alone here. Lets take a look further into the meaning of these retrogrades:
Ahh, Mercury. The planet we love and fear. The planet of communication and understandings. Mercury went retrograde on June 18, 2020 and will stay this way until July 12. This retrograde is happening in our emotional zodiac sign of Cancer. Since Mercury rules our thought process and Cancer rules our hearts, this can be a push and pull effect and send us spiraling out of control when Mercury is retrograde.
Venus rules our luxury lives and romantic lives as well. This planet of love and harmony went retrograde on May 13, 2020 in the witty and moody sign of Gemini. This transit has been longer than most Venus retrogrades and actually comes back into direct motion today, June 25. With Venus in Gemini, our focus turns to partnerships, relationships and even our finances. We can easily throw money down the drain under this influence so while Venus is retrograde, maybe think before spending, reevaluate your financial situation and budget accordingly.
The planet of higher knowledge and expansion, Jupiter retrogrades aren’t felt as heavily. Jupiter turned retrograde in Capricorn on May 14, 2020 and will stay until September 12, 2020. During this retrograde, issues of cultural and social expectations are highlighted. We will be pushed to reflect on our deepest needs and desires. Which as you can see, has already been happening. For the sake of humanity, I hope it continues to happen. Black lives matter and our voices will not be silenced under this influence until we make a change.
Big daddy Saturn is up to play in this six planet retrograde madness. At least that’s what I call him (heh). Master of karma and responsibility, Saturn transits are NEVER easy. Let alone Saturn retrograde transits. From May 10 until September 29, Saturn goes retrograde starting in Aquarius and ending in Capricorn. You are facing all karmic duties until they’re complete. It’s time to take control over your life, rethink everything and set off in a better direction. Relationships can break it or make it and this is all up to how much the other wants the commitment. Power play is another keyword for Saturn retrograde as many try to be one step ahead of the other. Creating healthy boundaries is important under this influence.
June 23, 2020 Neptune went retrograde. Neptune causes illusions and can create false realities. Hazy and lost in another world, retrograde Neptune can bring on feelings of doubts, hidden secrets, and loneliness. Life can seem tougher under this influence and relationships are put to the test. You may want to change direction in your life completely and this can shock others and even yourself. Everything is not as it seems under this retrograde. Neptune will station direct on November 28.
Pluto turned retrograde on April 25, 2020 and will be transiting back into Capricorn for the next 5 months until October 4, 2020. Intensifying, control, power, hidden subconscious, toxicity, secrets; these are all things Pluto represents so these are the factors highlighted under this transit that will now be turned inwards. This retrograde will help you push out anything that has brought negative emotions or hurt so you can heal by the time Pluto stations direct.
