Currently Mars, Mercury, and Saturn are retrograde. Venus is debilitated and Sun is in Gandanta. All this leads to a lot of stressful and challenging energy, especially if you have any planets conjoined these planets. However, this is at the same time a great time to use this energy as catalyst for spiritual growth.
Retrograde Mars and Mercury aspecting each other means that we all need to be extra careful in our communications, and how we voice opinions. This is a good time to practice loving speech, which is sweet to the ear and healing to the heart for those listening as well as for oneself.
Saturn is retrograde in the Nakshatra of Moola, which is a Nakshatra related to “the root.” This is a karmic time for many of us to really question the events that are going on right now, and try to find the root cause for these events. Sometimes, the stuck psychic energy which causes karma is healed when the root cause is analyzed and understood. Also, according to the Ra Material, the only way to overcome karma is to forgive others and forgive ourselves for anything that has happened in the past.
Saturn in Moola and retrograde is giving us the opportunity to analyze events and our relationships with others, and see where we are holding on to negative emotions. It is a good time to forgive and release those negative emotions which are causing our overall vibratory level to stay a notch down. The forgiveness of others automatically releases healing energy, and unleashes any attachment to negative emotions. Forgive and let go! Send love and light to your enemies! This is a powerful healing technique, try it!
