Astrological replace for the week of June 26-July 3, 2023
Retrograde Neptune. As most of you already know, planets don’t truly journey backwards however once in a while they may seem to reverse their travels via the sky as we observe them from Earth. These durations when planets are retrograde are instances of reconsideration and reversals, instances once we typically really feel we’re swimming towards the tide.
The outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) are every retrograde for about half the 12 months: This week, on June thirtieth, Neptune will flip retrograde, deepening our consciousness of the transcendent. Neptune’s affect is transformational slightly than private. It evokes us to expertise a Self that lies past our particular person personalities – to expertise divinely impressed creativity, to merge with the Soul in meditation, to expertise the Godhead in all of its myriad varieties. It additionally typically tempts us with fantasy and phantasm, fooling us with subterfuge and undermining our beliefs.
Throughout this time the Neptune affect turns into extra profoundly private. Chances are you’ll really feel like you’re wading via a thick fog in your life, unable to make a transparent choice. Chances are you’ll end up succumbing to unusual diseases for which there aren’t any names. Chances are you’ll be extra inclined to lies and deception and fewer capable of discriminate clearly.
This can be a time to show inside with a better deal with the internal world than the outer. Meditation and relaxation is essential throughout this time as our bodily power could also be diminished, particularly if Neptune is transiting planets in your individual chart. Chances are you’ll be extra delicate to psychic energies than different instances, particularly should you are usually hyper-sensitive, so plan accordingly.
Mercury enters Most cancers. Mercury, planet of the thoughts, enters Most cancers, signal of feeling, on June twenty sixth. Most cancers is dominated by the Moon and opens up the center to the realm of instinct and sensation. I like to consider the Moon because the doorway to the soul; the opening of the emotional coronary heart accelerates the connection of the Self to the Soul. Mercury facilitates the stream of knowledge and tends to be slightly indifferent from judgment and any type of coronary heart connection, however in Most cancers it might turn out to be simpler to grasp and interpret our emotions.
Bonus tip! This week Mercury will conjoin the Solar in Most cancers, the “superior” conjunction which marks the midway level to the following retrograde.
