All retrogrades are times of adjustment. You know the `re’ words; redo, reevaluate, redesign, rethink, reflect whenever a planet retrogrades. Saturn, like all planets, retrogrades with regularity. THIS retrograde of Saturn is somewhat epic because of its cat and mouse alignment with two other powerful players; Pluto and the south node of the moon. As Saturn retrogrades it triggers the south node of `endings’ with an exact conjunction as it nears transformational Pluto. All this can truly stir up a whole lot of fear!
The wheel has turned and it’s calling us to `come home.’ As of November 15th, the lunar nodes shifted in the Cancer-Capricorn polarity, and remain there until June 4th 2020. Collectively and individually the nodal shift whispers; Where is home? Where do you belong? And how may I sooth my insecurities, release my fears and quell my loneliness? The lunar nodes form the backbone of evolutionary astrology; rich in symbolism pertaining to destiny and karma.

A little life Review! Saying bye-bye To Aries in Uranus
As one door surely opens on May 15th…The Uranus in Taurus ingress…another door closes!
Here are some thoughts for you during the lingering last days of the cyclonic, electrifying wild and crazy ride offered up to us by the once-every-eighty-four-year transit of Uranus in Aries. It’s always good to reflect and reconsider upon what’s ending as we turn our gaze forward. Uranus is the energy of the unpredictable, the dramatic, bringing quick startling changes. The Uranus ingress took place in March 2011. Recall these events?
JOIN the C*I*A in Buffalo for a great weekend!
A new era is born; Uranus is moving into Taurus for the next seven years….
Join an international panel of C*I*A’s astrological experts to learn what this means for YOU and the world and anything `Taurus.’ ( money, security, resources)
Jupiter, defined by learning and expansion, is like the adjective `big’ when it transits a sign. This suggests that the spotlight will be on “big’ transformation, the core Scorpio issue, for the next twelve months. Jupiter spends approximately one year per sign, as it takes twelve years to make a complete orbit around the sun. Each of us have a Jupiter return year every twelve years-a year of new growth, risk-taking and exploration.
You have one more chance to make peace with the wild and whacky Uranus- in- Aries energy during the upcoming retrograde period which begins August 3rd at 5:31 am UTC through January 2nd 2018 when it stations direct. It’s time to redo, relive, and reflect upon the past seven years of Uranus in Aries action. With consciousness or not, you can integrate the learning of Uranus. Take what you wish and eliminate the rest.
What makes you happy? And, what is holding you back from embracing your bliss? These questions and more are about to bubble forth into the collective consciousness as the lunar nodes ingress into the Leo/Aquarius polarity beginning on May 9th 2017. Goodbye to the serve or suffer polarity of Virgo/ Pisces. We are about to embrace a new theme until December of 2018; the role of Individual creativity against the backdrop of group-think.
Saturn retrogrades on April 6th 2017 at 6:06 am UTC at the 28th degree of Sagittarius and emerges station direct on August 25th 2017 at Sagittarius 21. We have a lot of work to do during these four months and here are some thoughts to assist in our journey.
Let’s begin with Saturn in Sagittarius. Since September of 2015 Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius has offered us the opportunity to consider and name our beliefs, philosophies and spiritual leanings. As the great energy of boundaries and definitions, Saturn rules limits, rules, and structure. Life’s meaning is based upon whatever choices we consider to be true fed by the Gemini axis of logic, research and facts. My definition of what is true to me (Sagittarius) is based upon whatever information (Gemini) I have at my disposal.
Neptune, the god of the sea, stations direct on Saturday November 19, 2016, 9 degrees of Pisces at 11:39 pm EST. Time to reconnect with our inner intuitive self, our dreams, our divinity and the `namaste’ presence. It’s time to bring forward the dreams of June which went `underground’ when Neptune retrograde. It’s time to affirm how we fit into the `bigger picture.’
