RULER #9 – RETROGRADES FROM JUNE 24, 2021 THROUGH DECEMBER 1, 2021
The energy impress of this ruler emphasizes areas of spirituality, humanitarianism, and emotionalism. It is the Spirituality energy that identifies how we agreed to communicate with the Universe. It shows where we create our unique spiritual connection and also where we can sometimes be so emotional that we become stuck in unproductive patterns.
This retrograde works way beneath the surface and more of its effect is felt than seen. In global areas it effects the state of humanity, often bringing out some of the worst in mankind and initiating some of the best in us at the same time. Hidden agendas can manifest in cruel actions and the affliction of spiritual pain can be overwhelming. Emotions about the smallest or largest issues can go on a rampage leaving logical thinking as a last resort. Understanding that the Universe is forever moving in perfect form, we can suffer the mean and the ugly by reinforcing our own conviction that right and love WILL prevail.
On personal levels it is time to look deep within. The caverns of your spirit need to be rediscovered. You should be looking for the motivation for your life, not from mundane sources, but from the source that gives you the breath of life. You are a co-creator with the Universe and for as powerful as that makes you, you are also no more than the smallest of life spores in an infinite forest of life-chain activity. Forget the books and mantras and all these other turban wrapped concepts and get down to your own bone marrow. Life is replicating itself there. Cells are being born and the YOU of tomorrow is trying to surge to the surface of your skin. Can you feel that? Can you accept its design? Does the process delight you?
This retrograde period is the one time this year that you’ll truly get to go back to the raw clay, before the Master’s fingers begin to poke and pull and mold. It’s your one clear opportunity for incomparable self-discovery. This is the chance to move inside the seed before it breaks its covering, drinks its first drink of water and confronts the light of day. If you find the wonder in this you will be rewarded. If you shirk from going into those deep caverns of your soul there will be nothing to possess. The Lord giveth but (unfortunately) it is you who taketh away.” – Gregge Tiffen
