Retrograde is OVER!!!

Can we all just say Amen? The last retrograde of 2016 or the first of 2017 is finally over and we are all the better for it. There was some walloping energy that has been rolling people over and under for a few weeks.

Let’s stop and give thanks to whatever holds your spirit together that it is done for a minute that you made it through. It may not have been perfect, but it is over.

Now, what is next? Hopefully you worked out some communication issues you might have needed to wrestle with (intrapersonal, interpersonal or technological) and can move into a better space. Though Mercury was tough, the year is shaping up to be a doozy.

2017 is a foundation year. Numerologically it is a 1. Is anyone else singing that song from The Sound of Music (Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start…)? Just me? Okay, moving on.

Though Mercury is moving along its merry way, there are other major happenings that will have substantial impact on us. Jupiter heads retrograde in February and many other planets follow suit in the months to come. There are eclipses coming and so much sextile, conjunct and square action that we might all need a bit of therapy before June.

I am not going to sugar coat it: this year is one tough hombre. We are going to need to be a little tougher and, at the same time, not get to tough. In adversity will be much opportunity for those who know and want to seize it. There will also be moments when our toughness is best put aside and our empathy needs to lead the way.

For the next few days, ease your way back into life without Mercury hanging out in the wrong direction. Don’t be surprised if things are still a bit off-kilter: energy does not have an off-switch, it just flows.

So, go with the flow!
