RULER #3 – EGO AND SELF EXPRESSION – RETROGRADES FROM MAY 13, 2020 THROUGH JUNE 24, 2020
The 3rd Ruler has not been in a retrograde position since the late fall of 2018. Please take deep breaths everyone as we move through this very touchy and potentially explosive time period. Although the 3rd Ruler is a relatively short retrograde (approximately 6 weeks) it is a potent one.
The energy impress of the 3rd Ruler emphasizes the Ego and Self-Expression areas in both our Fixed Star Analysis and Bicircadian chart. By definition, ego is the act by which you make your statements of conviction.
“This Ruler #3 retrograde focus is on issues of people getting along with people. It tends to turn the simplest of conversations into bitter confrontations. The reason for this is that this retrograde draws out the worst issues of the “spoiled child” that lies within each of us.
Sometimes the issue simply ends up in which one party feels that they are not getting enough attention while the other party feels they are overworked, underpaid, and should be given a vacation that includes unlimited spending money and no time limits as to when they need to return. This is very difficult, to say the least.
Even those who deal on national and international levels don’t escape this effect. It can often deteriorate into who has the biggest gun and whose ball it is; and if I can’t play I’ll take my ball and go home.
During this retrograde it will be the little things that count. Every molehill is a potential mountain and every itch can become a raging infection. Self-discipline is a MUST. Bite your tongue and count to 10 or 15 or whatever. Stop playing the “poor little me” game, as everyone has his or her own little red wagon to pull.
Remember that everything is more sensitive than it appears. Glass is really fine crystal and the ice over the water is only a reflection. Step very lightly!” – GT
