We all know that feeling: Everything just feels off. Well, you're not crazy; you're experiencing a planetary retrograde and its cosmic energy. For the next couple of months, Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus & Mercury will all be in retrograde.


You may have heard the term "retrograde" being thrown around a lot lately, but what does it actually mean? Retrograde is a planetary alignment that occurs when a planet appears to be moving backwards in its orbit. During this time, the energy of that planet is said to be turned inward. With 6 planets currently in retrograde, it's no surprise that many people are feeling off balance right now!


Let's break it down and see how each planet in retrograde could be affecting you...

Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

August 24 to January 22, 2023

Breaking free from the past.

Uranus is the planetary revolutionary, rebel, and the ‘Great Awakener,’ showing us the progress and possibility ahead if we choose a new path. When this planet goes retrograde, it’s a time for breaking free from what’s no longer serving us. This can be a painful process of letting go, especially retrograding in Taurus—a fixed sign that’s notoriously anti-change and rules over such foundational areas of life as money, values, and security. Challenging as it may, it will also be incredibly liberating as we open up to new possibilities in our lives.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra and Virgo

September 9 to October 2, 2022

Comunicate to restructure.

Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, and technology. Can we say glitchy season? When it goes retrograde, it’s a time to slow down, review, and reflect, as there will be delays but ultimately for our highest and greatest good. As its retrograding in the signs of Libra and Virgo, this an energetic time to re-evaluate our relationships, friendships and dynamics and how we communicate with others. It’s also a time to get organized and restructure our lives in a way that feels more harmonious and aligned.

So if you’ve been feeling like everything is off, that’s because it is! But don’t worry, this too shall pass. In the meantime, try to make the most of it by using this time to reflect and realign. Trust that the universe has your back and everything is happening for you, not to you.
