Prograde & Retrograde Shake Down of the Shake Ups!

It’s November 17th, and we’ve got some planetary shake ups in our midst. Venus moves Prograde (Px, or “direct” as it’s sometimes referred) and Mercury is coming back with its hot mess! Uranus & Neptune continue their Retrograde (Rx) until January 2019 and end of November 2018, respectively. So what does this all mean? Let’s break it down…

〰️🕯

VENUS IN PROGRADE (Px): Venus is the gal with the most when it comes to love, relationships, creativity, passion, art, and all things that fire off the oxytocin in our brains. She started her Rx in early October 2018, and you may have felt as though your relationships (or lack thereof) were a bit on the messy side. Perhaps you had feelings of loneliness, loss, heartache, or even a disinterest in the things that make you passionate. Fear not!  She’s back on track, y’all! Now is a good time to return (as always, with caution) to that which makes you passionate and fulfilled in the hopes that you’ve gained some new insight or perspective with your former irritations. Looking for love or just a fun night?  Try one of our Mini Medi packs in Love/Lust! Check out the shop at the link in the bio.

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE (Rx): Ugh.  Are we all speaking different languages? Seriously.  How are you not understanding what I’m saying?!?!?!?! Familiar? I hate Mercury in Rx. I swear it’s like the monkeys have taken over the zoo and poo-flinging is the main source of communication. Just approach everyone with caution. Chaos will ensue, as it always does. Emergency rooms will be full of wolf bites & hysteria, police sirens will toll at odd hours, and your boss is probably going to be grumpy for a full month. Bite your tongue, THINK before you SPEAK, and for the Goddesses sakes, just stay home and HIDE. AND!  AND!! We have a full moon on the 22nd!!  I truly feel for the nurses & authorities that night. 😐 Maybe try one of our Binding/Protection Mini Medi packs before Mercury goes direct and comes correct on December 7th.

URANUS IN RETROGRADE (Rx): We should have known that Uranus being tilted on its pretty blue side is enough to know that it’s a chaotic mess. This lil’ guy…le sigh…King of Chaos whether he’s Px or Rx.  A bit like Loki, if you will. When he goes Rx, much like Mercury, things are just topsy-turvy. So if you’re sitting alone one night and thinking “what in the hell is wrong with me right now???” The answer is NOTHING. Axes are being tipped right and left and these planets are seemingly zig-zagging all over the damn solar system. Just because you’re a tiny speck on the ride doesn’t mean you don’t feel the shift. Between Uranus and Mercury being Rx at the same time, again, it’s probably better if you sit still, drink some ginger ale, and ride out the storm. While you’re there, snag a couple of those standalone white Protection Mini Medis from the shop, and envision a still ocean of peace!

〰️🕯

NEPTUNE IN RETROGRADE (Rx): Ok so think of Neptune as the Third Eye of your creativity and passions (a lot like Venus, but only level-up). Neptune, whether Px or Rx, is hard to discuss because it’s so “higher plane.” All I can say is, dig into those “feels” about your passions — ok, you there? Ok. So in that fuzzy space, Neptune in Rx is trying to push out some of that nebulous warm-and-fuzzy into reality. This has been happening to me a lot lately. Ol’ Neptune will spear that fish right up through the surface of the water, and I’m not ready!! NO! I DON’T WANNA! I’m a Virgo!  I have to obsess about it first!!! Nep says NO and does it anyway. So what do I do? I dissociate and binge watch Daredevil on Netflix. And then one day, during this Rx, Nep goes, “hey…remember that floating fish?? ‘member?? ‘MEMBER?!?!!? IT’S STILL UP THERE FLOATING.” And I own the floating fish. Whatever that means. In a nutshell, things are going to emerge from your inner esoteric whether you like it or not. It’s cool — you’ll grasp that floating fish when you’re ready to, and you’ll make the most wonderful fish dinner out of it. A good accompanying item for Neptune in Rx is the Money/Success Mini Medi pack! Whatever that floating fish is for you, meditate on it over this pack and your one fish just might become a sea of fish! Ok, I’m over that terrible analogy. 

〰️🕯

All of my biggest blessings to you, my beloveds, and good luck with the ensuing mess!
