This has been a summer of retrogrades. It’s slowed progress on numerous fronts and many levels. This is about to change.
There were five planets retrograde in July. Mercury turned direct on July 31st and then there were four.
Jupiter will turn direct in Fire sign, Sagittarius on August 11th. The planet will trine the stellium in Fire sign, Leo. Mars is part of that stellium. We’r going to be propelled towards our future. In fact, on the same day, Mercury will leave Cancer for Leo. Fire moves! The shift here is undeniable.
Now you may not get the actual traction you want; in a feet-on-ground type way. That’s more of a Saturn thing. But you can be sure that time is coming.
This is the time to advance creatively. Make an effort to shine, and the real-life rewards will come later.
