What to watch for:
* The Sun and Neptune together may bring exhaustion, soul tiredness, depletion, or the feeling of being totally overwhelmed. On the other hand you might experience an infusion of romantic, imaginative, and other-worldly longing, desperation, and desire. Be on the look out for martyrs, sinners, and saints, new age glam bombs, and close encounters with the numinous.
* With Venus slowing down to station, watch for delays, setbacks, and challenges within creative projects, or revisions, regression, or returns from the romantic or creative past. Venus offers a period of reflection and contemplation with regard to relationships, aesthetics, diplomatic agreements, friendships, and allegiances, but Venus retrograde may also involve challenges within all the same areas. Remember to trust the timing of any of these events and be careful not to demand or insist upon your own way or try to "ram" through things when a diplomatic and patient approach will likely work better for everyone.
* With Mars/Uranus opposite Jupiter we're in the midst of a time of tremendous invention, creativity, and initiation. Paradigms are meant to be broken. Limits are meant to be surpassed. And justice is meant to be used for the sake of transformation, liberation, and greater success and freedom. Resistance is in the air wherever there is corruption. Speed is in the air wherever there is a noble goal. Impatience wherever there are perceived oppositions.
Prayer: Renew our spirits. Restore our faith. Lead us to the river.
