You will feel a shift in energy and forward momentum as Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury station direct.

The Best Way to Use Retrogrades to Improve Your Life

The theme of any retrograde is to turn inward. It is the best time to slow down and take notice of what is happening in your life.

During a retrograde think of the words that begin with “re”: rest, rethink, readjust, refocus, reset, reclaim, and reintegrate.

Use this time to:

· Reflect inwardly.

· Reconcile your outward actions with what you are feeling inside.

· Gain revolutionary insights.

· Reclaim and reinvigorate yourself.

Each retrograde planet’s energy highlights a different area for us to focus on.

Use this time to be honest with yourself about what is working in your life and what is not.
