Going into last weekend with both Mars in Libra and Saturn in Scorpio on pause was manageable but once those two planets went retrograde, I ended up feeling completely flattened. Mars has been exactly conjunct my natal Chiron in Libra ever since it hit 27°, thus within a couple of degrees of my Sun. To say I’m hoping this energy drain will improve as Mars begins to pick up speed in reverse is an understatement!
Saturn’s station retrograde within a degree of my natal Mercury in Scorpio has made words very hard to come by. This doesn’t really feel like writer’s block so much as struggling to get my mind working! There is a distinct pause between each thought. As a result I’m probably going to only post my weekly ‘scopes and lunations until this state of affairs begins to improve. There are charts to analyze and reports to be written and those have to take priority for now.
What hasn’t helped either is the need to drop what I’m doing and help my Aries spouse with his latest crisis. Jupiter in Cancer is currently stationing within a degree of his natal Uranus in Cancer in his fourth house . . . square Uranus in Aries in his first. Jupiter stations direct tomorrow and hopefully will usher in a period of positive change.
These days I treasure every moment of normalcy in my daily life because I know those will continue to be hard to come by for awhile. I doubt if I’m alone dealing with sort of disruption and lethargy either. Here’s to making it thru all this in one piece.
