Which way is up? Which way is down?
last week, saturn the planet of karma went retrograde and will remain so until the end of august 2017. retrograde saturn is all about seeing past the illusions of the material world so that we can unchain ourselves from the suffering of samsara (the world of illusion). sounds simple right? well, you need to look at where this is happening in your chart to get an idea of what the challenge is for you specifically/karmically. we have an opportunity here to really release and let go of some karmic filters that are keeping us tethered to the world of limitation and illusion. basically, we need to see where we signed a deal with the devil, and check when it expires - or find the loophole and get out.
saturn will begin his retrograde in the 27th degree of sagittarius and go direct in the 21st degree of sagittarius. this tells me that the entire retrograde (generally speaking) is about reviewing the dates of december 10 - december 20 and seeings where we are burdened and taking on more than we can handle. so in other words, we are looking at our debt, we are looking at where we are now since we have taken on more (maybe from the end of december). it’s time to uplift, and expand our vessel so that we can receive more positive energy, and paradoxically, we know we are expanding our ability to receive when we feel pressure and stress - now what we do with ourselves under pressure determines who we become, or reveals who we are.
i am going to suggest to you use both chakra 1 by aurelia essential oils and the sagittarius essential oil blend by aurelialex essential oils during this retrograde.
we should also take note that mercury will be going retrograde early on this week too. so both mercury (the crown chakra) and saturn (the root chakra are retrograde) WOW! we totally feel it, each and every one of us like a positive and negative pull in different directions. mercury is going retrograde in earth signs all year, so i want to just make sure you have your earthquake kit and precautions ready if you live or are traveling to a earthquake prone area (although i have been seeing some earthquakes in places that NEVER usually do, so just better keep an eye out and pray a lot!)
the sun on sunday is preparing to move into its next stage and will be living up to its nickname, “sunday, funday”. there is still so much positive energy of celebration and joy, so really take the time to relish and be jolly. my only warning is to not get competitive or aggressive. watch my video on the month of aries:
monday gets the week off on the right foot with a full moon in libra! it’s all about once again, healing those past wounds and opening the heart. do you full moon meditations and let the heartbreak go! otherwise, we can get prepared for another cycle of heartbreak and disappointment - guaranteed! the full moon in libra is too close for comfort to a retrograde jupiter which can either expand us out of a rut or put us on rinse and repeat! it’s time to allow new and unimaginable love into your life. love is one thing the universe cannot run out of.
tuesday brings forth an energy of “yes man!” and “let’s work!” - we have a strong sense of imagination and we have the ability to re-direct our fantastic ideas into something practical and effective! This is a great opportunity to put any day-dreams and castles in the sky into action. if they burn out, then at least they are gone, and if they succeed - JACKPOT!
wednesday would be a good time to backup your data if you haven’t yet. make sure your time capsule is working without error. i could give you the name of a great apple care support specialist, but i don’t think it’s allowed! although mercury is retrograde, things are falling into place and we are totally online and ready to get our last minute tax returns in order! if we can manage to surrender our idea of how things are supposed to “work” then things will run smoothly. it’s almost like a free pass to not understand every single detail and let it just “work”.
thursday is hosting more of the energy that wants to breakdown the walls to our heart. someone intense or something intense is knocking on our door and wants us to open our heart with non-judgement. if we can manage this, then we will be able to manifest a new reality. so open your heart and see what you have been missing! your world will expand and you’ll be happy! otherwise, we once again risk another repeat of we won’t even know it (but our karma will).
friday has yin and yang working together and hopefully it’s in harmony! there could be some authority problems or some demands from some uncontrollable situation getting in the way, but if we can manage to endure, it will be worth it! when yin and yang are a team, working together that is, not even astrology has any reign!
saturday is once again, the summation of the week. saturn is retrograde asking us to remember how we got where we are and giving us what we have given. the cosmos is supporting us with self-discipline so it’s a great time to go on a diet or start a detox, or to refrain from snapping at someone. if you’re in a painful situation or in a struggle with someone you love, just try to remember that problems are just helping us to grow and learn some lesson. don’t forget you love the person, but keep up your boundaries. like i always say, “you can’t spell boundaries without ARIES!”
So, this week:
- we are taking self-responsibility for our reality.
- embark on a new journey, welcome new energy into your life.
- put any day-dreams and castles in the sky into action
- BACKUP YOUR DATA!
- balancing yin and yang.
- healing more heartbreaks.
- start a diet or detox?
- focus on your open heart when things get heated.
- Use the aries essential oil blend!

In my weekly write-ups, I refrain from using “astrological jargon” because it really doesn't make sense to people who know nothing about archetypal astrology. But I do indicate my science in the footer. General transit forecasts tell us what is going on in the world and how people are acting in general. Detailed and specific forecasts are of course read in relation to your birth chart. Meanwhile, if you want a more detailed explanation of where these energies are manifesting specifically for you, book a dash astrology session with me.
