Hello lovely ones and happy almost April :)
These monthly cosmic updates are now also Soulstrology Member only content and so are exclusively for you.
I hope you enjoy these cosmic updates as they pop into your inbox each month giving you the heads up about the cosmic influences in the month ahead as well as dates to log into your Soulstrology Member area to access the latest blogs (as I won’t pop into your inbox each time there is a new blog as I don’t want to overly bombard you…but heads up there is a new post waiting for you on the move of Venus into Pisces written by Soulstrology cosmic star Lexie Rollet which you should definitely check out).
Onward to April 2019 a month in which will see three planets turn retrograde…but to our advantage.
This month, cosmic benefic Jupiter, cosmic life coach Saturn and cosmic transformer Pluto all turn retrograde.
But this news should not cause you to shudder or to be fearful.
These are bigger planets, more traditionally considered ‘outer’ planets and unlike Mercury, Mars and Venus whose respective retrograde motions can wreak havoc with our lives, these planets retrograde motions do not have the same visceral aarrrgh retrograde impact upon us earthlings.
This is partially because these planets are literally further away from Earth and therefore their movement (or rather perceived movement) is not so discombobulating to us.
Also, their retrogrades last way longer (approximately 4-6 months) and so we don’t feel the same intensity of the retrograde lessons in a shorter period of time (such as for example, Mercury where I think it is safe to say we all FEEL all the FEELS and all at once!)
The start of these retrogrades this month, post the first Mercury retrograde of the year and in the start of not only the new astrological year but also a new season of life, will lead to many awakenings.
Regardless of our sign, Aries season will have us focusing on ourselves.
Our identities, autonomy, appearance, our inner leader (yes, each of us is a leader in our own unique way!) and how we go about manifesting our ambitions as well as how we deal with conflict with others.
Each retrograde will have specific lessons for the specific life areas which the planet/zodiac sign rules in our charts but they will in some way be contributing to awakenings we have about ourselves (Aries) this month.
It is a powerful month ahead.
Hopefully one in which we can shake off the fuzziness of the Mercury retrograde in Pisces and can harness the fiery energy of Aries and the new astrological year to forge ahead with a new season of life.
