In the last few weeks, having 5 planets retrograde was certainly not easy (now we have 4, as Jupiter turned direct on the 9th of May). Last time we had 5 planets retrograde was 10 years ago! Retrogrades are a time for reevaluating choices, and turning inwards. Things just don’t seem to work as they used to.
But – by coincidence – or maybe not, because there are not such things as coincidences in astrology 🙂 – during this retrograde period we have a very fortunate earth grand trine supported by Jupiter, Pluto, and several planets in Taurus.
With the retrograde period falling in the sign of Taurus – the sign of nature and matter – we have an amazing opportunity to slow down, tune into deeper connections – that otherwise get overlooked – with our surroundings and with ourselves, and understand at a deeper level the language of nature.
