Astrology PSA: What Does a Retrograde Planet Mean for You?

These are the Tarot cards most closely associated with Uranus and Mercury, the two culprits committing retrograde-related acts later this month…

You’ve heard about Planets going retrograde, right? Even non-astrologers like to reference upcoming retrograde events, and usually in fairly ominous fashion…

Retrograde periods are not necessarily just horrible intervals to be waited out in the storm-cellar, though. It’s important to look at where a given retrograde shift is happening, and then see if you have anything in certain affected areas of the sky in your own birth-chart. If not, a given retrograde might pass you by with barely a whisper of impact.

Late December of 2016 features two relevant events here: on 12/19, Mercury goes into retrograde motion in the Sign of Capricorn, and on 12/29, Uranus comes out of retrograde motion in the Sign of Aries. How do you know if these developments will affect you…?

Look at your chart! Go to Astromatrix.org or Astro.com, and enter your birth information – that’s your  date, city, and time of birth – into their FREE birth-chart generators. If you have any placements in the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), then this month may likely be an eventful one for you! If those stretches of sky are empty in your chart, though, then you may skate this time around in pretty carefree fashion.

Do check with a real, live astrologer for help with interpreting such things if needed…
