Retrograde activity crescendos to its yearly maximum after the 27th, when 60 per cent of the planets will be moving backwards. Even before that retrograde activity is intense – affecting 50 per cent of the planets. Events slow down even more. Progress to your goals is slower. With this many retrogrades happening the Cosmos is urging you (and everyone else) to be perfect in all that you do. Make sure you’ve written the address correctly when you mail a letter; make sure payments are made properly; the little details of life matter. Avoid short cuts. Yes, this slows you down, but you will minimize ongoing delays and glitches. (There will still be many.)
The month ahead is a very spiritual month, especially after the 22nd. In a way this is very good. The doors in the outside world may be temporarily closed, but the spiritual doors are always open. Thus, if there are delays in the different departments of life, work on them prayerfully and meditatively – this will help. This is a month for spiritual studies, the study of sacred scripture, meditation and contemplation. It is a month for making interior breakthroughs (which always precede the worldly ones).
Earnings will be good this month. Perhaps there are some glitches and delays, but nice financial things are happening. Jupiter is receiving very nice aspects. Finances will be better after the 22nd than before. But be patient.
On the 5th, Mars, your health planet, moves into your 12th house. Health can be enhanced with spiritual-healing techniques. If you feel under the weather a spiritual healer can help. Health can also be enhanced by massage of the hips and the kidney reflex (see the reflexology chart in the yearly report).
On the 11th Venus moves into your own sign. This is a wonderful transit for love. You look good. You dress more stylishly. There is more glamour to the image. In addition, it shows that love is pursuing you. You only need to show up. It is ‘effortless’ love. If you’re involved with someone, that someone is totally devoted to you. He or she is on your side, putting your interest ahead of his or her own. The only issue in love, as has been the case for several years, is the stability of it. But stable or unstable, it is fun.
