This ruler, when retrograde, affects the area of mental problem solving by forcing you to go back and rethink all issues that keep you from attaining satisfactory results. You should look at this period as one for re-building. Slow down and check your plans and your overall style of operation. This is a period of reconstruction and should not be viewed as a negative passage. After all, it would be impossible lives if we were not allowed to stop our forward progress long enough to go back and clean up the mistakes we had previously made. Without this opportunity we would find ourselves more and more burdened with old errors that would finally be so taxing that no forward progress would be possible.
Get rid of the junk in your thought processes. This will require very intense introspection and retrospection and more than anything a great deal of self-honesty. Get your groundwork properly in place so that only minor adjustments will be required when the atmosphere changes.
Make sure that you are operating from logic rather than emotion and that you exercise mental discipline and think about consequences. Your ability to hone and use the qualities of your mind will be tested so that at the end of this period the thought/planning pattern will be on a stronger foundation upon which you can build your new experiences. Make sure that you are using the correct methodology in the Mind/Problem Solving area as outlined in your Personal Fixed Star Analysis.
