It is always important to be aware of energies that are influencing us. This blog is only a partial report. We are cycling in Gemini, the energy of mental focus, addressing major changes and learning as we go through the #Covid-19 pandemic, and many planets are retrograding currently and through this entire year. Retrogrades occur when planets slow down through their orbits, but they present an energetic “drag”, where you revisit themes and issues from prior time. This is a time of deep self-inquiry, connecting with your spiritual self, making profound changes, opening to unconditional love and compassion. It is time to change your perspective, from self-absorption, to open to something broader that affects the entire human race. It is a good time to work on self-love, but also how we can help others and to help us realize our connectedness with all beings.
We also have three large planets in conjunction: Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn. These planets are addressing major themes of societal changes, disease, change, discipline and change.
Energywork can help us re-align as we go through powerful changes like those this year. If you need help understanding the greater context of how these energies affect you personally, or what you are addressing, reach out.

Check out the overview, below.
Pluto went retrograde April 25th-October 3rd. Pluto rules diseases, subconscious issues, death, and generational changes. It is the planet of the Covid-19 emergence. It makes us address and deal with deep societal and personal issues. The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed so many weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the care of people, revealing who needs help (and always has).
Saturn goes retrograde May 10th-September 27th. Mother’s Day is May 10th! Saturn is the planet of structure, discipline and focus. Saturn also relates to the responsibility we take for our life and how we create it. As it goes retrograde, we might be more introspective. When it goes retrograde, structures in our life may need to change, be reorganized, or things may not flow as directly or concretely as you may like (like it is harder to get through to or get paid by the Employment Security Department, as an example).
Mars goes direct in Pisces May 12th-June 27th, so if you are a Pisces or have prominent Pisces activity in your chart (like Pisces rising or your moon in Pisces), it may give you a boost, put you at the center of attention, or attract opportunities for you. Or you may be writing or broadcasting in some way (like on Zoom or Facebook Live). Mars also rules competition and your sex life, incidentally.
Venus goes retrograde May 12th-June 24th. Venus rules love, the ability to receive, our relationships, beauty, cosmetic surgery, skin care, salons and designer clothing. Be careful with any of your beauty regimes or home haircuts! Make beauty changes before May 8th! It is a time to re-evaluate our relationships, and how we relate to others and ourselves.
Jupiter goes retrograde May 14th-September 11th. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, prosperity, good luck and growth. The question that this planet presents is, “What are you learning?” When this planet is in retrograde, especially with Pluto and Saturn, expansion can really slow down. Prepare yourself for things moving slowly and not as expected or hoped. You may not have the big picture right now–you may need to take the small steps, and when Jupiter goes direct, you might gain the “big picture” again.
The new moon is on May 22nd in Gemini. This will affect everyone differently. For Pisces, it affects the home life. This new moon will be in a positive alignment with Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, so if you make decisions then, they will get some planetary support.
Mercury goes retrograde June 17th-July 12th. Mercury rules communications, electronics and how people understand each other. If you want to buy electronics or sign contracts, do it before June 10th!
