RULER #8 – RETROGRADES FROM APRIL 27, 2021 THROUGH OCTOBER 7, 2021
This retrograde effects two areas; finances and success. Globally, the financial areas can be unsettled and often gains made now can easily be lost later. On the world scene, everyone wants to be at the head of the line and there is more than enough ego bellowing to last for the rest of the year. This is a retrograde that can appear sometimes more than once a year (it will not in 2021) and accounts for fluctuating fiancial markets and business trends more than any other condition. High financial risk by countries who have nothing else to lose can disrupt economic stability throughout the world.
On a personal level this retrograde calls for balancing the financial ship. It is an especially GOOD TIME to go back and look at financial blunders that have hurt your bottom line or played havoc with your budget. Stop making the same financial mistakes over and over again. Increasing debt with the pie-in-the-sky belief that the lottery will save you is inviting long lasting disaster. Quick money or money falling from the sky is not something you will likely see during this retrograde. Lending and borrowing should be managed with a tight fist. Financial contracts should be read with a fine tooth comb to make sure that you do not miss anything in the fine print. And, in all cases, financial dealings should be backed in writing. Verbal agreements are very likely to turn out badly.
Career and job conditions will depend on what you’ve done in the past that has brought you to your current position. Old mistakes or poor performance can now jump up to hurt your advancement. Pushing for a raise or a promotion is not likely to go in your favor unless you can point to a very positive track record in your past output. Watch the political in-fighting at work. The knives are very sharp now and your back is as vulnerable as a turkey’s neck in November. It can be a good time to reposition yourself and solidify your status if you do it quietly and without making waves. Once this retrograde is over, you will be able to move much more aggressively. During this 8th Ruler retrograde, RE-WORK and CORRECT are the keys!
