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.
On 21st April, Mars begins six weeks in Gemini, where he encourages us to assert ourselves verbally. Barbed words and clever turns of phrase are common when the Cosmic Warrior is in Gemini, a placement that calls to mind courtroom drama, acerbic standup comedy, and biting satire. Fiery political rhetoric is likely – and in the sign of the twins Mars doesn’t mind amplifying both sides of a debate. Yet Mars in Gemini isn’t only verbal. Mars is the planet of action, and he moves quickly in Mercury’s sign (although perhaps a bit less quickly for a while
Mercury is technically retrograde from the 10th April until the 3rd May. However, if you are exploring the psycho-spiritual process related to this celestial phenomenon, there is a lead in and lead out time that extends the Mercurial Retrograde process from the 1st April through to the 17th May. This entire process refers to the time prior to the retrograde wherein Mercury
Saturn at the Galactic Centre during 2017 makes the times we are living in ever more more interesting. As a relatively new area of exploration and a new concept for astrologers, after exploring the images and the symbols of such a potent energy and planets in this area in the past, I can certainly see merit in using The Galactic Centre as a representation of not only being pulled into something larger than life, but also as a conduit to a great symbol of a most creative force in that exists in oneself and in our collective destiny.

Jupiter in Libra shifts into retrograde motion on Monday February 6, 2017 at 6:52 am UTC, beginning its’ five months’ long trek into the realm of redoing, reconnecting and realignment. It’s time to explore our beliefs (Jupiter) about relationships (Libra) and as with anything in astrology…so much more.
The sabian symbol for the Jupiter retrograde at 23 degrees of Libra is the `third wing on the left side of a butterfly.’ An extra wing on the delicate butterfly may look intriguing and even beautiful, but the lopsided appendage would handicap flight.
The 1 Year of 2017 – the first green shoots of a new 9-year energy cycle – begins at the Aquarius New Moon on January 26 and accelerates through February’s switch point astrology. This is when we walk across the bridge across tomorrow from the wrecking ball Uranus/Pluto years of 2008-16 into the Light Grid of the 2017-2022 Uranus/Eris/Haumea years. The Year of the Yin Fire Rooster is all about opening up, about asking difficult questions, about seeing the Emperor’s new clothes and revealing inconvenient truths. No more hiding our heads in the sand or hoping everything will go back to “normal”.
