Key themes: trust issues, remaining open to explore new perspectives and approaches to life, choosing who you share yourself with and respecting your limits, tapping not your inner child, connecting with your playful side, trusting where you’re at on the road to your life goals
You may be rethinking your beliefs, checking in to see if they still align with your journey. Mercury retrograding through your area of expansion may have you coming up against the obstacles that are getting in the way of what you know can help open up your world. Be patient. Be observant. Allow yourself to explore new ideas and new approaches to life. This can serve in overcoming what is getting in your way.
Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through your collaborations, co-creations and spaces of intimacy. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. This is your time to choose what you share with others, especially when it comes to your time, energy and resources.
The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of creative self-expression and romance. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about reviewing how you wish to keep expanding the ways you experience pleasure, creativity, and play. Jupiter wants you to make time for the simple pleasures. Connect to the small delights that you love the most. This is an abundant time for your creative projects. But there’s no need to rush, take things slow. Trust that leisure time can be a great way to get your creative juices flowing.
On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion, offering some clarity regarding the path you’re currently on and how you wish to keep expanding your life. Which beliefs or current life perspectives do you feel may be limiting your ability to move forward?
We have the New Moon in Virgo on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, reminding you that it’s ok to get it wrong, as long as you’re willing to keep learning and moving forward. Take the leap, and try not to get discouraged if you don’t get the opportunities you desire. As you keep moving forward you’ll create that chance for yourself or an even better one will come along. Commit with the long-game in mind. Setbacks only represent more knowledge for you in this game. You’ll become clever about choosing and knowing where the real deal is at. Steer clear of unnecessary power struggles and drama. The lighter the load the further the reach.
On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. You may feel your sense of direction returning. Feelings of being lost and unmoored will begin to loosen up little by little and you’ll be able to have clearer vision when looking forward, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.
We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, shining a light on your professional goals and aspirations. This is your time to get seen for the things you do out in the world. There’s a lot you can accomplish and get done, but try not to push yourself too far over your limit. Take it slow, remember the lessons that Jupiter is teaching you about all of the magic that is capable of coming through you when you allow for leisure, play and pleasure. Do your best to find a balance that feels right, where you don’t burn out from doing too much, and where you don’t end up feeling that you’re not doing enough.
On the 29th, we will have the Full Moon in Aries at 5:57 am EST, inviting you to explore what makes you feel safe, nourished and grounded. Bring awareness to the parts of your past that come to visit and the messages they bring about your present. This is an invitation to pause and to celebrate your successes. No matter where you are in your journey, congratulate yourself for what you’ve been able to accomplish up until now. Pauses are part of the path towards progress. Remember that your value is the same whether you’re going through a great time in your career or a time of mishaps or transformation. It is all part of a longer process. Trust where you are now.
