This week in itself is going to be quite the rollercoaster when it comes to the energetic world. Not only are we going to be facing Saturn’s retrograde beginning but also that of Venus as well as Jupiter.
Saturn goes retrograde on the 11th which for those who may be reading this was just a day or so ago. This influence brings a lot of pain to the table but not in an overwhelming way. This retrograde has us all working harder to be more caring for others and trying to pick up on things we’ve been missing.
Now, from there we’re going to be facing a lot of smaller celestial events and while those won’t make a big difference depending on the person they could throw things off a bit. By the time we get to the 13th we’re going to be noticing that it feels like we’re being weighed down in a lot of ways. That is how Saturn works.
On the 13th Venus comes into play and goes retrograde as well which will be in Gemini. This retrograde is going to be a harder one to swallow than the retrograde of Saturn because it will bring up karmic issues. Don’t run from the lessons this celestial body is bringing forth, if you want to grow you must allow yourself to learn.
I know, this already sounds like a lot and can be confusing but keep in mind that these energies are all going to be working together to bring things our way, we’re going to be getting all of them versus just one at a time since retrogrades don’t last a mere day. Jupiter, as noted above, will also be going retrograde the very next day (May 14th). To me, Jupiter is the most interesting when it comes to the celestial bodies we’re dealing with the most right now and with good reason.
Astrology King noted as follows about Jupiter’s retrograding energies:
Jupiter retrograde transit is a regular cycle of four months duration, occurring every thirteen months. Transiting Jupiter retrograde is a time of philosophical or spiritual introspection and reflection. You could have to deal with particular issues involving growth and development, happiness, and success.
Jupiter retrograde means that whatever area of growth you need to work on is so important, extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. You may be tested to make sure you are ready to receive the good fortune, new romance, or increased wealth you seek.
Perhaps a destructive behavior like greed or addiction is out of control. In this case, Jupiter retrograde will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your complacency or ignorance.
This week in itself might be quite unpleasant for many of us but it is going to reset us in many ways. We will be more capable once all is said and done. While these energies will be present for a long time even after this week, how we face this week shapes everything.
Right now, do your best to look for deeper meaning in things, and don’t assume that you’re right just because you think you are. The Universe has a lot in store for you. While these energies are nothing to fear, they can be a bit frustrating and that’s not going to change.
