A Process of Maturing -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., April 10 - Sun., April 16th, 2017

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Daylight Savings Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week, I felt very focused, yet also in "flow". No doubt Saturn's station and Venus being back in Pisces had a lot to do with that — Venus is my chart ruler, so I felt more connected to the feminine and intuitive. Although it was not exactly aligned, the Venus/Chiron connection made space for emotional and spiritual healing around relationships and self-worth.

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement: 
Very last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM, thisWednesdayApril 12th, 2017 at 2pm PDT/5pm EDT/10pm GMT (London-time). Please note thatMercury started its 3-week retrograde phase on Sunday, and we have the PlutoRetrograde in Capricorn coming up (starts April 20th). 

We will look at these planetary movements in relationship to our own birth charts. If you want to know how all of this is going to impact you personally, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording. Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here 

This week's headline items: the Full Moon in Libra becomes exact on Monday night/Tuesday very early morning. Just as with last week, there's a lot of station-related action going on: Saturn ends its station on Friday, the Pluto station intensifies on Saturday, Venus comes to a halt on Saturday morning (starting to move direct again), finally, on Sunday, Mercury ends its station as well.

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday afternoon (for almost 4.5 hours), Thursday night/Friday very early morning (for a little over 6 hours), and Sunday afternoon (for a little over 4.5 hours).  

Monday (April 10th): the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra. It will journey there until Tuesday evening. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others. 

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation -- but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to "yes" more easily than we might like. 

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can't make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm -- even if it's "No" ;-) One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts. This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the Full Moon (exact Monday night/Tuesday very early morning). Click here to watch my Full Moon video

Also, tomorrow (Tuesday all day) and Wednesday before 4pm EDT, is your last chance to sign up for Wednesday's FORECASTING FORUM. Please note that we have a Full Moon in Libra on Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, and a Pluto station/retrograde in Capricorn coming up! If you want to know how these energies are going to impact you personally, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording. 

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here 

If you would like to join live, please keep in mind that registration will close an hour before the live event begins, if you register after 4pm EDT on Wednesday you will receive the mp4-video recording of the webinar.

Tuesday (April 11th): the Moon remains inharmony-loving, balance-seeking Librauntil 6:42pm EDT (see Monday for details). 

As mentioned above, the entrance of the Moon into Libra started the energetic build up towards the Full Moon; this will be exact Wednesday night/Tuesday very early morning at 2:08am EDT; the Sun opposes the Moonin 21.5 degrees of Libra

There is a lot to cover with this Full Moon, as it is also connected to the cardinal T-square involving Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto... And while all this is going on, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto are all stationing (i.e. moving slower, therefore more exalted)! I will get into this in more detail in a moment… For more details on this intense Full Moon click here to watch my video on the subject

Ok… Let’s dive in :-) 

For the next two weeks, we are looking for balance; we are more aware than ever that something needs to be brought into alignment, to be integrated. The balance in question is between ourselves -- symbolized by Aries -- and others (Libra). It's important here to realize that relationships (symbolized by Libra) are essential to our existence -- and play a crucial role in defining and reaching our personal goals/desires (represented by Aries). 

Of course, all of this will resonate more with you if you have personal planets (or angles) within 2 degrees of the Full Moon… I’ll circle back to that later (you may also want to watch my 30-minute class on: "How to Read Your Birth Chart” if you haven't seen it yet)

We are also invited to look at the balance of feminine and masculine within ourselves, our relationships, and our world. Where has this gone out of balance? What happens when there is too much of either? Or too little?

The Sun in Aries is connecting to Uranus -- this planet symbolizes the desire for freedom, equality and progress. Uranus in Aries (aligned with the Sun) asks us to break away from whatever has prevented us from stepping up our game. Shifts are happening everywhere; it's time to develop some courage and awareness: Where do you want to step up? If you made a big leap, where might you land? 

This is also a call to look at the roles that “assertion" and “independence” play in our lives. We're called to find ways to develop a healthy sense of self -- total honesty is crucial here, both with ourselves and with others. Allow the higher vibrations of Aries to shine through: courage, openness towards the new, directness, a healthy sense of identity. The spotlight is on us...

The Moon in Libraaligns with Jupiter: this planet symbolizes growth, expansion and new perspectives. This emphasizes the need for new perspectives in our collaborations: objectivity, consideration, equality, balance, justice, etc. As you can tell, the spotlight swings over to our relationships.

Uranus opposite the Moon invites us to pay attention both to feelings (and emotional responses) and to insights about personal progress and future visions we identify with. How might we express ourselves truthfully, without compromise… all while considering other people's feelings and needs? 

Pluto in Capricorn is the focal point of the cardinal T-square,that also involves the Full Moon this time around. We very well may experience some tension and intensity for the next two weeks. The Pluto station amplifies this even further, putting extra pressure on our need for change, expansion and "making it" in the world. The solution to this intense combo is Self-care! 

Pluto moving so slowly, and getting ready for its 5-month retrograde phase, makes its energy “exalted” (heightened). This has us investigating anything dysfunctional within our businesses, governments, or long-term goals. We are being asked to eliminate or transform whatever is no longer in alignment with our Soul’s passions.

We will go into this in more detail in our next Forecasting Forum — if you want to know how the Pluto Station is impacting you personally, feel free to join us, as we will apply what's coming up to our own birth charts. The forum is on Wednesday, April 12th at 5pm EDT/10pm BST (London time zone); for more info or to register, click here

One way or another, we've been talking about the above-mentioned T-Square since November of last year — as you can see, this is a process, not an event. Do your best to observe what needs to happen in your life, if you’re to make the best out of this transformative aspect -- what’s working, what isn’t? What needs to change? What demands a new perspective? Where do we need to let go of fears and attachments?

This last question is important: the Pluto station adds a clear message to this Full Moon... “Let go of anything that doesn’t empower you or your long-term goals!”

Deep structural changes need to occur -- in our own lives, and collectively. Ask yourself: What am I building long-term, that supports my Soul Purpose, my passion? What am I building that doesn’t? Another question you can ask yourself: What role does “FEAR” play in my life? Where do I have attachments to the past out of fear? Where do I feel a need to protect myself, keep things close to the vest?

To have a better idea what this T-square is all about, I invite you to read my article on the subject -- if you haven't seen it yet. You can also email us at  info@AstrologerCoach.com and write "T-Square" in the subject line -- my assistant will email you the article ;-)

Mars (the ruler of Aries), is currently in Taurus; it's making a trine to Pluto in Capricorn and a sextile to the Chiron in Pisces.The trine to Pluto is definitely a strong energy for steady, practical, down-to-earth work on a project. As best as you can, leverage this powerful mixture of energies to go after the things you have been wanting for a while now... and as Pluto is involved, use it all to fulfill on your Soul's purpose.

Anything that we feel deeply passionate about and that feels in complete alignment with our deepest core, is very likely part of our Soul's journey. What moves you? What turns you on? Not just on a physical level but also on an emotional and spiritual level? If you had all the resources that you needed, what might you choose to manifest?

The sextile to Chiron could inspire us to take actions towards healing our emotional and spiritual wounds. If we can allow the inner masculine (taking action, giving, etc.) to protect and co-create with the feminine (allowing for intuition, receiving, etc.), we will go further than we can imagine. 

This also asks us to slow down a little, check in with our intuition and values, and let us be guided to the next action. Compassion and humility can really help with this process. Ask yourself: When I'm in the flow of things, am I "the doer" or does "doing" simply happen? (...and really check -- don't assume :-)

Mars also inconjuncts the Moon in Libra. We feel uneasy about something for the next two weeks, and we must develop an inner awareness of what exactly needs adjusting. Ask yourself: What's a realistic promise that I could make to others at this time? A good place to "aim" this question is toward "relating" or "collaborating". 

Also: If I were to be absolutely realistic and honest with myself, how much can I really do for others without compromising my own values -- in other words, while still honoring myself?

Venus (the ruler of Libra) is currently in Pisces, aligned with Chiron in Pisces, and making a square to Saturn in Sagittarius. The conjunction to Chiron gives us a nudge towards learning to love ourselves and healing deep fears of being "not good enough". This healing happens much faster when we are open to forgiving and embracing ourselves exactly as we are (and are not). Where are you in this process?

The square to Saturn is a process of maturing that requires we adjust and stay flexible. It also lets us know that it's wise to double-check our assumptions and belief systems... Do any of them need updating? 

With Venus in Pisces, we are invited to bring an open heart to this process -- and to have compassion toward ourselves. As best you can, take it one day at a time… something very profound is happening to us -- we have the opportunity to change our relationships (and whole lives) for the better!

For the next two weeks, keep asking yourself: What shifts might be possible for me, if I just let my mind and heart stay open? Where would self-responsibility and intuitive knowingness meet? 

Do your best to observe any recurring thoughts -- those are very powerful -- they become beliefs, and beliefs create our reality, so take responsibility for them. If our beliefs about ourselves, others and the world are low in vibration, we will only be able to create something with a low vibration. 

Look to see which beliefs serve you (and which don't). As best as you can, align with your higher truth, your higher path -- using your intuition and maturity is highly recommended at this time.

The Venus and Saturn station amplifies this even further. Ask yourself: What assumptions do I make about myself, others, life? How can I embody my truth 5% more fully? What might be possible if I decided to "walk my talk"? How can my intuition support me in all of this? When do I ignore my intuitive senses? What "shoulds" are playing out, when I'm not listening to the voice of my heart/intuition?

With this many stations and squares going on in this Full Moon chart, as best as you can, remember that each of us is experiencing these energies in one way or another... Some may feel overwhelmed or anxious, some may even have vertigo :-) As best as you can therefore, practice self-care, be compassionate with yourself and others; if someone doesn't return your call, it’s not personal... they may not be able to ;-) 

We will go over the upcoming retrograde phases in more detail in the next Forecasting Forum -- if you want to know how the Mercury Retrograde and Pluto Station/Retrograde will impact you personally, feel free to join us -- we will apply what's coming up to our own birth charts. The next Forum will be on Wednesday, April 12th at 2pm PT/5pm ET/10pm BST (London-time); for more info or to register, click here

To sum it all up for this Full Moon: Double-check whether you are coming from love or fear - and remember that impatience is a form of fear as well (fear that the timing or pace of things is not "right" ;-) For more details on this intense Full Moon click here and watch my video on the subject

The Natal houses in your birth chart affected by this Full Moon indicate which areas of your life are up for development and for the next two weeks. If you'd like to dig in to this, I want to once again recommend my 30-minute class on: "How to Read Your Birth Chart: https://goo.gl/hQdVHj. This is also a great video to watch before joining my Monthly Forecasting Forums!

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 17-24 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign inLeoorCancer(the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Tuesday at 2:19pm EDT,we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for almost 4.5 hours, until 6:42pm EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to collaborate with others and bring a new level of focus and authenticity to your exploration of life. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Tuesday afternoon ahead of time ;-) 

Tuesday at 6:42pm EDT, the Moon moves into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Friday morning. We feel things deeply and have "X-Ray Vision" and "Bullshit-Smelling Abilities" ;-)

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever... as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction -- it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It's therefore an excellent time to look at "old" fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas. 

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity -- it's "in or out", "with us or against us", "love me or leave me". It can therefore be stormy -- a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we "work" the energies :-)

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so as best you can, be straightforward -- act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings -- no matter if they're "polite" or "timely". Feelings aren't facts, but they are information -- and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are. 

Know thyself -- and love thyself -- you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes "Force" to show up -- and that's ultimately what disempowers us and others. 

Wednesday (April 12th): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothingScorpio all day (see Tuesday evening for details).

For most of Wednesday (especially towards the evening), we are likely to experience a sense of ease and flow, but may need to slow down and allow our feelings to come through. A gentle approach is best. We feel good when coming from the heart and making deeper connections with others. Being open to receiving and going with the flow are key! (Moon in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces)

Also, Wednesday until 4pm EDT, is your very last chance to sign up for today's FORECASTING FORUM. Please note that we just had the Full Moon in Libra yesterday (Monday night/Tuesday very early morning), the Mercury Retrograde in Taurus began last Sunday, and the Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is coming up! If you want to know how these energies are going to impact you personally, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording. 

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here 

If you would like to join live, please keep in mind that registration will close an hour before the live event begins, if you register after 4pm EDT on Wednesday you will receive the mp4-video recording of the webinar.

Thursday (April 13th): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothingScorpio all day (see Tuesday evening for details).

Thursday morning, we feel good about making deeper connections; we'll have an opportunity to become fully committed to a project or task, something that might serve us long-term.  (Moon in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn)  Towards the evening, we may feel uneasy about something. An inner awareness needs to be developed if we’re to see what needs adjusting. (Moon in Scorpio inconjuncts Sun and Uranus in Aries) 

Thursday late evening: we are capable being compassionate and forgiving with ourselves and others. A gentle approach is best. (Moon in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces) 

Thursday night/Friday very early morning at 12:08am EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for a little over 6 hours, until  6:27am EDT (Friday morning). If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it to connect with others (and with yourself) on an authentic, deep emotional level. How might intuition guide you at this time? As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Thursday night and Friday early morning ahead of time ;-)

Also onThursday night/Friday very early morning, a Sun/Uranus alignment in 24.5 degrees of Aries becomes exact at 1:30am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will be strong until Sunday night. This alignment brings confidence and a desire to connect with others through a common cause. We may have sudden insights into our friendships -- and how they connect us to a bigger vision. We know that if we want to move to the next level, we need to strategize with others. 

We are also asked to connect to the unusual. Our creative core is awakened: We feel compelled to express ourselves in unique (or at least unconventional) ways. Our consciousness expands, we are receptive to new ways of thinking, doing, and living; this increased openness to all that is new and different may bring unexpected opportunities. 

As I mentioned in the Full Moon video I posted earlier this week, Uranus symbolizes the desire for freedom, equality and progress. Uranus in Aries, aligned with the Sun, asks us to break away from whatever keeps us from stepping up our game. Shifts are happening everywhere. It's time to develop some courage and awareness: Where do you want to step up? If you made a big leap, where might you land? 

One thing to remember: Keeping the heart and mind open could make a big difference to the experience of this alignment.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 21-28 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Aquarius (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius) 

Friday (April 14th): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothingScorpio andVoCuntil 6:27am EDT (see Tuesday evening and Thursday night for details).

Friday at 6:27am EDT, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journeyuntil Sunday evening. We're strongly motivated to explore and learn. We're not likely to be big fans of routine -- diversity and new adventures work best at this time -- we're also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired -- but we also have a high degree of independence, which means we'd rather inspire others to do things our way, than take orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see. 

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge -- just watch out you aren't overdoing or overstating things. 

Also on Friday: although now retrograde, Saturn resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station. What has come up in the last two weeks, around commitment to a higher truth, and the need to be mature in your world view? How truthful are you, regarding your belief systems? The retrograde phase is a good time to do some internal work in these areas (the retrograde ends on Aug. 25th).

We now have 4.5 months to go over recently built belief structures, to see if they are aligned with our inner truth. We are also now ready to contemplate solutions for whatever was "in our face" from March 26th until now -- solutions that work well both with our inner truth and our outer reality. 

Saturday (April 15th): the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day (see Friday morning for details)

Saturday morning, at 6:18am EDT, Venus comes to a halt at almost 27 degrees of Pisces— turning direct after having been retrograde since March 4th. Whether by Sun-sign or Ascendent, Taurus and Libra people will feel a sense of relief as Venus starts speeding up again (Venus will still be moving slower until April 22nd), helping us integrate the realizations of the past six weeks. This will lead to a greater sense of alignment between our inner values and our intuitive sense of relationships and finance. 

The period immediately before and after a planet’s retrograde phase is referred to as the “shadow phase”; at these times, the planet travels once more through the degrees of a sign that it had already passed through before and during its Retrograde phase. Venus is usually in its shadow for about four weeks prior to a retrograde, and for almost five weeks after. 

In this case, Venus will be in her shadow phaseuntil May 18th; this is territory she already visited in March/April. Come May 18, she will reach 13 degrees of Aries, finally going beyond where she has been before. 

Between now and May 18th, we have a chance to go over all that we have learned internally in the past 6 weeks, and then apply it to our external reality. This is a chance to address anything that we have reassessed around our values, our relationships (including the relationship we have with ourselves and spirit), and our gifts and talents.

Also on Saturday, Pluto's station intensifies, as the planet is further slowing down. It is getting ready to come to a halt on April 20th, getting ready for its 5-month retrograde phase. This makes its energy more exalted in the sky for the next 2.5 weeks...When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; we become more aware of its impact on us -- and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet's energy has picked up speed again (around May 2nd). 

Pluto is associated with our soul purpose. It relates to the process of empowerment -- our ability to feel empowered from within, through the experience of wholeness -- and to our deepest passions. It is also associated with transformation, for example our ability to transform darkness into light or "death" into "rebirth". Those terms don't necessarily refer to physical death or rebirth, but rather some sort of ending and beginning. 

To get to a place of truthfulness on the soul level, Pluto will remove what no longer serves us, replacing it with something new -- something fully aligned with our deepest passions and soul purpose. When we resist the deep changes Pluto brings, we tend to suffer; on the other hand, when we surrender and allow for that process to take place, we will move to a place of greater authenticity -- and feel a newness and empowerment  from within. 

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is "in your face" for the next 2.5 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul's purpose (your deep authentic Self). Ask yourself: Where am I holding on, out of fear? What habits, behaviors or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like, if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel? When we confront our fears we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 17-21 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra? If so, you will feel this station more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Scorpio (Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio). 

Sunday (April 16th) is a big day(astrologically speaking):the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 7:05pm EDT (see Friday morning for details)

Sunday morning, an opportune Mars/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 8:24am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Thursday on and it will be strong until next week Tuesday night. This is an opportunity to accept the validity of our anger and desire, so that we can learn to express these energies naturally and confidently. 

This could also inspire us to make resolutions and take actions towards healing our emotional and spiritual wounds. Remember: this is an "opportunity" -- those aren't necessarily handed to us, we have to make them happen.

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 24-29 degrees of Taurus, Pisces, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries (Mars rules Aries)

Sunday at 2:26pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts a little over 4.5 hours, until 7:05pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to focus on long-term projects that involve a truthful perspective or an adventure into the truth. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Sunday afternoon ahead of time ;-)

Sunday evening, at 7:05pm EDT, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Wednesday morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters. 

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us. 

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid "should-ing" on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying "I am doing the best I can and that's all I can ever do" ;-)

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it's transiting through Sagittarius right now, making this a great time to explore limiting beliefs and bust through conditioned thought structures -- and those stories we tell ourselves about "what was", rather than what actually "is". It's also a great time to take a more serious look at the "meaning of life". 

As best as you can, be authentic about your beliefs: Do they actually match your direct experience of life -- as it is for you now, rather than 5 or 10 years ago? What is true as of now? What is not? 

Sunday late evening, an opportune Venus/Mars aspect becomes exact at 9:26pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Thursday on; it will be strong until next week Thursday. This aspect helps intimate or close personal relationships along, bringing passion and sexiness to them -- and if we're not in a long-term committed relationship, we'll get some help in forming one. 

This could also be a good time for financial ventures, social life, artistic pursuits, and pleasure in general. Remember: this is an "opportunity" -- those aren't necessarily handed to us, we have to make them happen.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or any personal planets in 25-29 degrees of Pisces, Taurus, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Aries (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Mars is the ruler of Aries) 

Also onSunday: Mercury resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station -- but moving backward through the sky, as seen from Earth (that’s what “retrograde” refers to). We have a chance to do some internal work on any thinking and/or communication issues that came up over the last couple of weeks, that were connected to our finances and sense of self-worth.
