I wrote about Jupiter retrograding back into Aquarius a few days ago and you can catch up here if you missed it. When Jupiter is retrograde (as we observe its motion from Earth) we tend to look backwards at lost opportunities, or else we are forced to retrace our steps in order to achieve the expansion which Jupiter always urges. We’re certainly seeing this in the world today as the expansion of the Delta variant begins to see a backsliding of the opening up of the world that everyone was hoping for. And this comes in the midst of the social disruption created by the Saturn/Uranus square: Compression (Saturn) vs Radical Release (Uranus). This is a good time to look back and reassess any areas that may be holding you back from new opportunities and an expanded future so that when Jupiter turns direct in December you’ll be ready!
The Moon enters Aries today for a fiery burst of energy, both physical and mental. Mars, the fire planet, is at the critical (aka anaretic) degree (29) of Leo where it can be most potent – like the finale in a fireworks show, at 29 degrees Mars will sometimes burn off any energy it has remaining in a sign before moving on to the next. This is all happening in Leo, the sign which focuses on personal satisfaction so this will be highlighted until tomorrow when Mars settles down in Virgo. ❤️
