MORAG: “Mayan Prophesy 24.05.17”

Mayan Prophecy 2017.jpg

The Age of Aquarius, of Awakening, the Return of the Divine Feminine, the apocalypse, all have been predicted on planet earth for many eons. That time is now. Planet earth circa 2017 is transitioning, it is experiencing all of the above.

Ancient wisdom, teachings of Da Vinci, Einstein and Tesla (among others) and modern technology should have prepared us for the quantum spiritual evolution of humanity and Gaia. Liberation, awakening, enlightenment has been suppressed by the elite. As a global population we are largely ignorant of the process we are all embedded in.

Ancient cultures like the Mayans link our past with our future. Celestial knowledge equipped them with the tools for dowsing Gaia’s future. Whilst 12.21.12 was the big date MSM pounced on to try and own, subvert and control. The date itself is largely meaningless in the Mayan calendar. The Mayans believed 2011/12 were the trigger years, the kickstart of global waking up, activated by cosmic waves of higher frequencies.

May 2017 plays an important role in Mayan predictions concerning the Ninth Wave. A new ‘Day’ begins within the Ninth Wave triggering Enlightened Unity Consciousness. It seems we are reaching a huge timeline shift, a cosmic crossroads of consciousness.

To manifest a better world we dim the red alert lights of the matrix and turn up the emerald green lights of heart led Gaia healing. We are being asked to return the heart to Gaia, to heed our grandmother’s tales, the ancient ripples of truth, of enlightenment. To disengage from the darkness of the third dimension. Battle lines drawn. Service to self or service to others, our core truth, determine the frequencies our cellular system vibrates at. The point of critical mass is being reached.

We can all feel the density of the energy. The conflict, the chaos and the control of the elite is creating a build up of tension, of energetic weight to be released. We know the barbarism going on. We can see, smell and revel in the beauty of nature, the wonder of soul tribe nourishment and the magic in mindful existence to counteract this pull, this separation of dimensional existence.

These next few weeks and months our challenge is to integrate, attune our mind body soul system to higher frequencies on Gaia. To prioritise self care. To manage stress. To simplify our lives. To seek stillness and calm within. To believe and vote for a better future, a future where people take care of each other.

This is our mission as lightworkers, earth warriors, teachers and healers. To raise the vibrations. To be heart led.  To send ripples of emerald heart energy out into the world.  May 24 may or may not be the catalyst, but it certainly confirms a feeling many of us have shared these last few weeks, the time is now.

There will be fluctuations, blocks and flow for many years. This is not instant, this is not a one day ascension drama. This is ongoing, riding the waves aligned and balanced. Connected and part of everything. Committed to change. To improvement. To creating a better world.

Resonate Enlightened Unity Consciousness in the face of fear. Get to know the ebb and flow of higher consciousness awakening. Be the change we want to see in the world beautiful people.

 

Mantra: I am a sovereign being connected at all times to universal love light.

I see a better world, I believe in peace, I am love. 

I anchor my light to Gaia’s grid. I send healing love light to Gaia and her people.

In gratitude with grace and humility. Namaste.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: Venus Retrograde March – April 2017”

venus-retro

Venus retrograde is one of the most significant astrological transits. This is because Venus retrograde is quite rare and only happens once every 18 months.

Venus is also the celestial body in charge of your heart center and your gut. Because of this, Venus retrogrades are often deeply healing and help to awaken your heart to a new understanding of Divine love.

Venus retrograde officially kicks into gear on March 4, 2017 however, Venus has already been slowing down since January 31, 2017.

Since the end of January, Venus entered into the “shadow” period, which is a time when Venus starts preparing to go retrograde. On this preparation day, Venus usually sends a message and highlights what the retrograde lessons may be for you.

Perhaps think back to what was happening around this time to see if you can identify what Venus may be trying to show you.

As the ruler of the Divine Feminine, Venus has an important role in our lives. It is Venus that aligns our heart and teaches us how to love. It is Venus that helps remove blockages and barriers from around the heart so we may experience the bliss of unconditional and Divine love.

Venus also rules over our instincts and intuition, and helps us to become better listeners and better observers of our body, mind and spirit. Health issues can sometimes arise on a Venus retrograde, but this is simply her way of reminding you to listen to your body and its infinite Universal wisdom.

In each of us we carry a Universal wisdom. This Universal wisdom allows our body to heal and look after itself. This Universal wisdom allows our heart to beat, our eyes to blink and our skin to heal when we cut ourselves. We don’t need to tell our body to do these things, the body just knows. The body has its own wisdom and the more we can connect with this, the deeper our relationship with ourselves will be.

This year, Venus is retrograding through the signs of Aries and Pisces. These astrological signs embody the energy of new beginnings (Aries) and endings (Pisces).

Endings and new beginnings have been a Universal theme for quite some time and it seems that this Venus retrograde is no different. The only difference here however, is that Venus wants us to see things through the lens of our heart and not our mind.

When Venus goes retrograde it is a time to heal the wounds of your heart, to let go of past lovers and relationships, to let go of past hurts and blockages, and to open yourself to a deeper love.

Venus retrograde is also a time to tap into your intuition and to really listen and follow through on your gut feelings. Venus is all about the link between the heart and the gut and this is a powerful energy center we all possess.

We all know the feeling of butterflies in our stomach or “gut feelings” and these sensations are believed to be an accumulation of energy that filters down from the heart.

When you can get your heart and gut working in symphony with one another, it will be easier to follow your intuition and understand intuitive messages when they arrive.

As Venus goes retrograde, old messages of the past will also need to be cleared and swept away. Any nagging intuitive feelings or nagging feelings in general will be swept up and away, particularly if they are to do with love and relationships.

If you have been feeling confused about a relationship or if you have been feeling withdrawn from love, this Venus retrograde is going to bring you clarity. Before this clarity can enter into your life however, there first has to be a healing.

Venus retrograde at first, can cause us to close off our hearts and perhaps feel withdrawn. Venus retrograde is a time of going within and sitting with the baggage inside our heart chakra.

It is only when you can do this, it is only when you can sit with the murmurings of your heart that you will be able to release yourself from the pains of the past.

While Venus is in retrograde, surround yourself with things that are going to help strengthen your heart chakra, such as pink or green crystals, pink candles, flowers and other items that remind you of feminine Venus energy.

Through the retrograde period, you may feel your heart challenged to rise up, release the fear and love even more. You may feel challenged by the Universe to truly delve into the healing vibrations of self-love.

When in doubt, self love is always the answer and Venus, whether retrograde or not, will always celebrate this.

If you do nothing else this retrograde period, self-love will be absolutely more than enough.

Venus will shift out of retrograde by April 15, 2017 and by this time her most important lessons would have been revealed to you. Venus will not be back to her usual energy and vitality however, until May 18th, 2017, so her lessons may linger until this time.

Many astrology books suggest not getting into new relationships or getting married/engaged during a Venus retrograde. They also recommend not starting a new job, getting plastic surgery, changing your appearance radically or purchasing luxurious items or jewelry.

Usually there is no desire to do these things through a Venus retrograde period anyway, but if you feel the desire to do any of these things, throw caution to the wind and see where it may lead you.

The Universe always puts you where you need to be and always takes you on the journeys that you need to go on, so don’t fight your natural instincts.

If anything, Venus retrograde is all about following your instincts and learning how to strengthen that all-important connection between the heart and the gut.

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Venus Retrograde 2017 ~ Fated Love”

venus-retrograde-2017-2

Venus retrograde 2017 starts on March 4 at 13° Aries and ends on April 15 at 27° Pisces.

Venus retrograde March 2017 is a six-week period of exciting opportunities with love and money.  Instant attraction and whirlwind romances are possible.  The key to enjoying Venus retrograde 2017 is to choose your options carefully.  Hasty decisions based more on lust than love will only end in sorrow once Venus turns direct.

You can find true love during this Venus retrograde but some hardship or delay is to be expected.  These shared burdens are a sign of fated love and the price you must pay to be together.  Self love, patience and good timing will increase your chance of a loving and lasting relationship.

Before I go into more detail about Venus retrograde 2017, I will talk about what it means to have Venus retrograde in your natal chart then the general meaning of Venus retrograde in transit.

Natal Venus retrograde means you have some difficulty in giving and receiving love and affection.  You may experience sadness in love or have to endure hardship or delay.  Lack of self-love, social anxiety, shyness and even financial hardship can be associated with Venus retrograde in your birth chart.

Often these challenges are a result of past life relationships issues.  Due to the laws of karma, if you caused suffering or hardship to a lover in a previous life, then you shall experience something similar yourself during this life.  Venus retrograde acts like Mars so perhaps you hurt someone you loved.  Maybe you had an affair, walked out when they needed you most, or physically injured them.

Whatever the circumstance of the previous romance, you come into this life with those bad memories etched in your soul.  You probably don’t recognize them as memories but as déjà vu or unexplained guilt.  Especially when young, there can be a repeating theme of challenging events related to your past.

Sadness and disappointment may come from unrequited love, forced marriage, sexual abuse, mental illness or physical disability.  Learning to love yourself is critical in working through your Venus retrograde issues.  Other signs of natal Venus retrograde can be poor personal hygiene and not caring about how you look.

Self love can start with beautifying your physical appearance.  The use of fashion, cosmetics and beauty treatments can greatly improve your self-love and therefore make you more lovable.  However, natal Venus retrograde can also show as excessive use of makeup and jewelry or even disfigurement from cosmetic surgery.

The aim of Venus retrograde in your natal chart is to perfect those areas of your love life which once let you down.  As your relationship skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be repaid and you start to enjoy more loving relationships.

Transiting Venus retrograde occurs once every 19 months for a period of six weeks (42 days).  This means Venus is retrograde only 7% of the time which is the least amount of any planet.  The next closest is Mars retrograde at 9% then Mercury retrograde at 19%.  Venus retrograde should therefore be the most strongly felt of all retrograde planets.

During Venus retrograde your love life enters a fated period.  Giving and receiving love and affection becomes more difficult.  Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues.  As Venus also rules money, it’s traditionally thought that Venus retrograde is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items.

Venus retrograde in transit is a time of introspection and reassessment.  You may be interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure.  Destiny encounters are possible and you may actually come into contact with your soul mate.  If so, you should experience a feeling of inevitability or familiarity.  However, it is better to wait until Venus turns direct to make your move.

Use Venus retrogrades to improve how you feel about yourself, to love yourself more. Think about what really brings you pleasure.  Find the reasons for problems in previous or current relationships.  This is where old lovers reappearing can help you clear away the past to make room for new relationships.  Even reminiscing about previous partners can be enough to empty out your karmic baggage and lighten the load.

Venus Retrograde 2017

January 30, 2017, Venus enters shadow zone at 26°54′ Pisces.

From now until Venus retrograde is called the first shadow period.  During this phase you will get an idea of the love and money issues that will be of concern during the retrograde phase. [See Chart]

March 4, 2017, Venus stations retrograde at 13°08′ Aries.

Venus retrograde 2017 makes no major planetary aspects.  The the main influence on Venus retrograde March 2017 is the fixed star Alpheratz at 14°32′ Aries.  The head of the Princess is very lucky.  Acting like Jupiter and Venus it brings harmony and popularity.  It gives independence, freedom, love, riches, honor and a keen intellect.

The minor aspects to Venus will have subtle but romantic effect.  The accepted rules for Venus retrograde are to not start a new relationship or to marry, and to not spend big money.  However, the fortunate fixed star makes Venus retrograde 2017 a promising time for dating and for relationships which began before March 4.

Venus Retrograde 2017

Jupiter opposite Uranus brings many exciting opportunities.  Mars conjunct Uranus suggests instant attraction and thrilling sexual encounters.  However, impulsiveness would lead to wrong choices and embarrassment later on.  Fast money can be made but lost just as quickly.

Mars trine Saturn does give a desire to save money but to also stick to your long-term goals.  Dating should be enjoyable and you may actually meet your soul mate during this six weeks.  Old relationships can be restarted but a serious lasting relationship is unlikely to begin.

April 15, 2017, Venus stations direct at 26°54′ Pisces.

This second shadow period of five weeks ends on May 18.  Your love and money issues that were in focus during the Venus retrograde phase can now finalized.  While there are no fixed stars with Venus direct, there are two significant planetary aspects.  These major aspects to Venus direct give further clues on how to move forward.

Venus sextile Mars is ideal for romance and socializing.  A perfect blend of sexuality and affection make you look and feel sexy.  You can be confident and assertive in chasing your desires without being at all threatening.  This balance also means you are ready to give and receive love and adoration.

Venus Direct January 2017

Venus square Saturn has the opposite influence of Venus sextile Mars.  It adds stress to relationships from negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems.  Hard work is required to maintain your present relationship.  Don’t ignore the affections of loved ones.

Increased financial pressure means you should avoid wasting money and other resources.  While Venus retrograde March 2017 was a good time to budget and make financial plans, now is the right time to act.

During Venus direct you should pay off debts.  If there is anything leftover then try saving for the future.  If you did make a major purchase during the Venus retrograde phase then you may experience financial hardship now as a result.

Venus square Saturn also indicates a fated romance.  Any hardships you must endure are karmic in nature and the price to pay for being together.  It can also means shared responsibilities of a serious or heavy nature such as caring for parents or a shared financial debt.

The combined effect of a sexy Mars and gloomy Saturn means that existing relationships can improve and new romances can start.  However, be prepared to face some hardships.  You may have to prove your love or fight hard to win or keep your partner.  There may be criticism from parents or teachers and frustrating delays due to distance or lack of money.

If old lovers came back into your life during the Venus retrograde phase, they may depart now or start causing real problems in an existing relationship.  If this is true love, patience and loyalty will lead to a committed and lasting partnership.

May 18, 2017, Venus leaves the shadow zone at 13°08′ Aries.  The final phase of Venus retrograde 2017 is now complete. [See Chart]

If Venus retrograde 2017 affects you directly it will be mentioned in your monthly horoscope.  For more details on how Venus retrograde 2017 aspects your birth chart, see Venus Transits.

ADEANA M. SLATER: “Don’t Lose Yourself In The Illusions That Surround You”

illusions-2

It seems as though the political arena has attracted much attention as of late.  You can see opposing sides and arguments.  It has not only crowded the social media but also our minds.  Suddenly those who were making great strides in soul empowerment and consciousness, are suddenly caught up in the web of anger, fear, and despair.

Choose to take a step back and see with higher awareness that all challenging situations are the biggest catalyst for change not only in the outer world, but within yourself.  When we see opposing sides, rather than fight amongst each other, keep an open heart and mind.  There is no right or wrong, only perception.  We learn from adversity the most.  It brings sharper focus and determination all that needs to change in order to bring us closer together as ONE, rather than push us further apart.  A unified voice is much stronger and louder than a multitude of voices all talking over one another in utter chaos.

There is nothing wrong with sticking up for yourself and that which you feel most passionate about.  However, choose to be discerning in how much power you are giving away fighting others in unnecessary drama.  There is a healthy way to be proactive, and still maintain in control of your life and reality.  ‘2017 is all about new beginnings.

The intense energy surrounding you is supporting you to focus on yourself in order to bring about positive, healthy changes.  Things, people, and situations that no longer resonate with you are beginning to feel stagnate and heavy in your energy field.

This is for you to recognize all that needs to be shifted out of your life for the new blessings to enter.  In order for new to enter, the old must be let go of and transmuted.  Take advantage of this time for self reflection sand reevaluation.  As we all become more passionate and aware of the changes we wish to see in the world, we must first BE that change.  Change starts from within first and then effects our outer reality.  Don’t lose yourself in these worldly illusions that surround you.

I believe in you!! 💜

In Love and Light,

Adeana M. Slater

L’AURA PLEIADIAN: “Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in Leo, February 10th, 2017 ~ Upheaval or Elevation”

leo full moon (2).png

“All Bets are off, so to speak.  Upheaval or Elevation.  Do not get me wrong, there is mystical magic at play with during the upheavals.  What you are ready for is what will come up.  This may bring sudden unbelievable changes you have longed for.  Or a situation reaching a peak for you to finally deal with.”

~L’Aura Pleiadian

 

The Full Moon in Leo, February 10th, 2017 is at 8:32pm AST. The Lunar Eclipse, brings a completion to what began with the September, 2016 Solar Eclipse.

Sun opposite Moon, brings a heightened emotional response to relationships and the emotional atmosphere (what is up to be cleared as memory) increased with the impact of the Lunar Eclipse.

Jupiter Opposite Uranus will bring added intensity to this opportunity for transformation, within.

All Bets are off, so to speak. Upheaval or Elevation.

Do not get me wrong, there is mystical magic at play with during the upheavals. What you are ready for is what will come up. This may bring sudden unbelievable changes you have longed for. Or a situation reaching a peak for you to finally deal with.

The more you feel restricted with what comes up during this powerful energy event, the greater the emotional impact and power available to you for your transformation ~ through this.

No thing is really external. It is HOW you feel you that is up for change.

Things may feel out of your control, and that is a good thing. As those things you control are never up to be cleared within. To expand in consciousness levels of fears and beliefs are released.

Someone asked me recently about a timeline shift or time shift, potential.

This is ALWAYS available to you, and definitely the opening and activating what is up next to be cleared during this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is (if in your Soul Plan) and going through the process, while truly being present, may be the Quantum Leap and Lead to a timeline shift for you. (more on timeline shifts soon)

This is why we cannot force a change with anyone. It is up to them, them and their Soul Plan. The timing is right for everyone, When they are ready they are ready.

It is a PERSONAL initiation to a HIGHER Level of Consciousness.

ONCE you have completed one level of clearing an initiation begins and you enter a NEW TIMELINE and go to the next level ~ OF your CONSCIOUSNESS Expansion. IT is about within YOU and has nothing tho do with external circumstances. External circumstances may be the TRIGGER of THOSE emotions. Those fears.

So completions of all that arose for you in September, 2016.  Memories to be released. You stepping into the embodiment of your Higher Self. Your Ascension. An Upheaval or an Elevation. Or both?

Stay Present and be ready.

There are no limits of what may shift within you. What your next level may be. It is exciting, exhilarating and there will be many surprises. So Breathe.

Breathe deeply and in the moment. In the Glory of The Divine Overseers.

And there you will BE ~ United with the Divine you, the Master of FORM ~ all NOW. Breathe and receive.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: February Lunar Eclipse 2017”

feb-full-moon-eclipse-2-3

The February 10-11th Lunar (Full Moon) Eclipse in Leo represents the opening of a new gateway and a starting point into the energies of 2017.

Eclipses act like doorways into different energy paths, and are powerful enough to transform, shift and change the direction and flow of your life.

The last eclipse was in September 2016 and February’s Eclipse is going to bring an end to whatever energy was brewing at this time. This ending is to pave the way for a new beginning, which will come at the end of the month on the New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Lunar Eclipses are always viewed in astrology as being deeply transformative times that can bring abrupt and sudden change. While this is true, there is another side to Eclipses that is important to remember.

Eclipses are like the cosmic helping hand of the Universe. Imagine the energy of an Eclipse like a Universal hand that reaches down from the heavens and puts you where you need to be.

This place may not be where you want to be, or may not be where you thought you would end up, but it is definitely where you need to be.

The good thing about Eclipses is that generally you can trust the direction they are guiding you in. Eclipses bring about almost fated events that are part of the cosmic plan and written just for you.

The writing is definitely in the stars for this February Lunar Eclipse, due to the fact that the Moon also makes a sacred pentagram pattern with other planets.

It is very rare for the celestial bodies to arrange themselves in the shape of a pentagram or star, but this indicates a lot of luck, harmony and Divine synchronicity.

In fact, whatever comes your way around this Eclipse is likely to be resolved very quickly and the odds are likely to fall in your favor.

This Eclipse energy feels very fated and illuminating, almost like the Universe is drawing your attention to a particular area of your life for a very specific reason.

Seeing that the Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo, there is going to be a fiery element to this Full Moon as well. This energy is going to help push things along but it is also going to provoke abrupt endings.

If something needs to be gone from your life, if something needs to come to an end, this Eclipse is going to set the wheels in motion.

2016 was very much a year of endings. Endings are necessary in order to make way for the new and this Lunar Eclipse is like the final purge of 2016.

Whatever you needed to let go of, whatever changes you needed to make, this Eclipse is going to ensure that it happens.

This is a powerful eclipse, but it is also extremely magical and protective. Change will happen but it is definitely going to be change for the better.

The energy of this Lunar Eclipse will last until August 2017 and will open a new gateway of energy that is productive, active and positive.

Leo represents the King of the jungle, so it is likely that this Eclipse energy will allow you to stand up and take ownership of your life so you can become the Queen or King of your own jungle.

As things are brought to the surface around the Eclipse, try to embrace it and remain open to whatever comes your way.

Eclipses are powerful teachers and are like a direct calling card from the Universe as to what we need to release from our lives and what we need to bring into our lives.

The pentagram formation of this February Eclipse is going to ensure that our lives are put into perfect balance and symmetry. It is also going to ensure that we have the tools we need to move forward into 2017 with confidence and a fresh perspective.

This Eclipse marks the first for the year and is going to be an incredibly powerful and magical guiding force. Trust whatever unfolds and know that it is all for a much higher purpose, know that whatever unfolds was written in the stars.

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Jupiter Goes Retrograde In Libra — Expect Some Unexpected Luck”

jupiter-retrograde

Jupiter Retrograde 2017 begins on 6 February 2017 at 23° Libra, and stations direct on 9 June 2017 at 13° Libra. I will talk about each phase of Jupiter retrograde 2017 including when Jupiter enters and leaves the retrograde zone. Before that however, you will find a brief description of what it means to have Jupiter retrograde in the natal chart followed by the general meaning of Jupiter retrograde in transit.

Overall, Jupiter retrograde 2017 is very promising for achieving growth and happiness in a particular area of life that is important to you now. Unexpected good fortune is at hand with work, travel, education or a new relationship. Whatever your hopes for the future may be, this years Jupiter retrograde is an opportunity to make great leaps towards living out your dreams.

If your goals are unrealistic, deceitful or greedy then the Jupiter direct phase from June to September 2017 may result in disappointment and loss. Even if you are travelling on the right path at this stage, you will be reminded how important it is to be happy and content with what you have. Jupiter retrograde 2017 requires introspection and an awareness that inner, spiritual growth is necessary for your hopes and dreams to materialize.

Jupiter Retrograde Meaning

Jupiter retrograde in the natal chart means that there was a problem in achieving goodness of the soul a previous life. This certainly does not indicate a bad soul, but that there will be some lessons or extra effort required this life in order to achieve goodness of the soul, to be genuinely happy and content.

Jupiter retrograde by position and aspect shows the areas of life, or the personality traits and behaviors, which specifically require extra development. The optimum Jupiter nature is broad-minded, happy, comfortable and content. A healthy Jupiter is continually growing and expanding in philosophical and spiritual outlook. The aim is to be charitable, generous, friendly and welcoming to all people, regardless of social status, religion, cultural or ethnic background.

Jupiter retrograde in the chart could show as greed, selfishness, gluttony, extravagance, wastefulness or self-righteousness. Addiction, intolerance, bigotry, ignorance or showing off may be holding you back. Whatever is stunting your personal and spiritual growth is what Jupiter retrograde focuses on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Jupiter retrograde phases.

Jupiter retrograde in transit is a regular cycle occurring every 13 months and lasting for about 4 months. Transiting Jupiter retrograde represents a time of philosophical or spiritual introspection and reflection. During the previous months since Jupiter entered the retrograde zone, you will have been dealing with particular issues involving growth and development, happiness and success.

Jupiter retrograde means that whatever area of growth you have been developing is so important, that extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. You may be tested to make sure you are ready to receive the good fortune, new romance, or increased wealth you seek.

On the other hand, it could be that a negative Jupiter behavior such as greed or addiction has been getting out of control. In this case, the Jupiter retrograde months will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur in order to shake you out of your complacency or ignorance.

By the time Jupiter stations direct, you should have come to terms with the relevant issues and be prepared for the next phase. In the third and final Jupiter retrograde phase, from the direct station until Jupiter leaves the retrograde zone, positive growth and development lets you bound ahead toward ultimate success and happiness.

Jupiter Retrograde 2017

10 November 2016 Jupiter enters shadow zone at 13°12′ Libra

From now until when Jupiter stations retrograde is called the first shadow period. During this phase you will get an idea of the personal growth and happiness issues that may be of concern during the retrograde phase. [See Chart]

Jupiter square Pluto dramatically increases your desire to succeed but also indicates a tendency to go to any lengths to get there. Avoid ruthless tactics, greed and compulsive behavior. Jupiter sextile Saturn helps counter the extreme and intense nature of  Jupiter square Pluto. It helps you focus on your objectives with patience and determination.

6 February 2017 Jupiter stations retrograde at 23°08′ Libra

The Jupiter retrograde 2017 chart below clearly shows a right-angled triangle formed by Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Overall, this is a positive configuration with the two harmonious blue aspects turning the challenges of the red opposition into opportunities for success.

Fixed star Spica 24°04′ Libra greatly increases your chance of success during the Jupiter retrograde phase. Here we have the most fortunate planet on the most fortunate of all fixed stars. This alpha star of the Virgin gives wealth, success, happiness and love. Spica conjunct Jupiter in particular assists in spiritual development and psychic awareness. It offers protection, advancement and the possibility of wealth to even the poorest of people.

Jupiter Retrograde 2017

Jupiter opposite Uranus greatly increases your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. A sudden event may release your built up tension and lead to a major change in circumstances. You can find adventure and personal growth through travel, education and new relationships while still maintaining certain core responsibilities in your life.

You can find creative and ingenious ways to relieve the boredom without causing total chaos and disruption. Though technically a challenging transit, the relief from stress and tension can be very satisfying. A change in beliefs or social interaction may be all it takes to act as a circuit breaker. At the deeper level you are seeking a burst of higher awareness, to transcend your daily routine and bring on a spiritual growth spurt.

Jupiter sextile Saturn slows the speed of any change and reduces the shock value. You can rely on sound judgement skills to only chose those opportunities that are right for you. These opportunities may be in your career, through investment or business deals, or in your personal life as major material possessions or relationship choices. Patience, perseverance and a strong work ethic ensure your gains will be enduring and substantial.

Saturn trine Uranus also makes any growth spurts more lasting. It makes the changes in your life run more smoothly. Change will not be as upsetting or erratic as Jupiter opposite Uranus alone would bring. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically. You can find new days of doing old things without rocking the boat. You could take the lead in your career to initiate needed changes and gain respect and recognition from your boss.

9 June 2017 Jupiter stations direct at 13°12′ Libra

This second shadow period lasts until Jupiter leaves the retrograde zone on 9 September 2017. Areas of life that were a major focus during the Jupiter retrograde phase can now be worked on.

Fixed star Algorab at 13°41′ Libra suggests this phase will be more challenging than the retrograde phase. Greed in particular is more likely now. If the retrograde phase did not bring the success you had hoped then you may become bitter and jealous of other people’s success. You may try to make up for missed opportunities by lying, stealing, or picking over the scraps left behind by others.

Jupiter Retrograde 2017

Jupiter quincunx Neptune supports the fixed star theme. If you dreams of success have not been realised by this stage then you may become bitter and disappointed. You may look to get ahead through ‘get rich quick schemes’ or gambling. Reeling from your dissolution and broken dreams you may seek to escape harsh reality of your situation by turning to drugs or alcohol.

If things have not worked out as you had hoped then it is important to remember that Jupiter retrograde 2017 is more about inner spiritual growth in preparation for material success like wealth or happiness in love. It may be time to adjust your dreams for the future and aim to be happy and content with what you have before chasing more and more. If you cannot find inner happiness now, it will be difficult to find contentment with more stuff filling up your house.

9 September 2017 Jupiter leaves the shadow zone at 23°08′ Libra

This completes the final phase of Jupiter retrograde 2017. [See Chart]. The outlook is extremely positive after that questionable shadow direct phase. The glorious fixed star Spica again brings out the best of Jupiter good fortune and happiness.

The North Node of the Moon connects with Jupiter sextile Saturn to place your firmly on your destined path toward true happiness in your soul. Relationships with your family and partner are integral in facilitating your continued success with those areas of growth and development you have been focused on this past ten months.
