Explorations into the combined retrogrades of Aquarius Mercury/Jupiter Leo.
Mercury is direct, (out of shadow March 4).
Jupiter direct at 12 Leo on April 8.
What can be gleaned from these thinking, communication retrogrades ?
Sevens are mysterious, different, intellectual and metaphysical. Ruled by Uranus (Aquarius) seven represents freedom, change and inventive eccentricity. Seven of pents represents contemplation of action, patience and being at a crossroads.
I am feeling this one. No longer waiting for Bloom, it’s done. Hallelujah ! Orli’s chart was one of my most read posts here. I completed a major undertaking recently, was left wondering …”now what ?” Actually I do know my next few steps, but with the giant project over, I had to re-form another big picture, brainstorm another lofty goal.
I had lost what, over time, had become my refuge, or so I thought.
This card points to re-evaluation for all of us.
No one is alone, truly alone – for we are all on this rock/boat together in a vast sea of space. Not only are we physically (via the elements) and psychically connected, but know also other dimensions are present as well. We have guides, angels (Uranus rules angels and Aquarius) and messenger friends in the animal world as well. We are loved and supported though we may at times have felt abandoned, that is not the case.
This one in particular is for all you single folks out there…keep going…if I can keep going through hell, so can you – just keep going. I’ll see you on the other side.
Now for Jupiter which is still retrograde for several weeks…
What have we to glean from this transit ?
Not growing fast enough, creative misses, skillcraft fumbles, uncontrolled waste, scattering energies. Oh yeah…Jupiter does love to explore new vistas, and the seemingly relentless navel-gazing may be getting a bit old. Believe me I get it, my 8th/12th solar, just call me swamp thing.
Fives are ruled by Mercury – flexible, full of surprises and opportunity.
This retrograde is here to teach us creative patience, control and stillness. See the irony and laugh at distractions for they are great teachers. Goats, gators, elephants and birds are totem messengers, but so are flies and mosquitoes.
All things great and small.
