Seven Planets Retrograde this Summer!

Yes, starting with Mercury Retro on July 26th 7 planets will be retrograde this summer! Right now, there are 5 retros: Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. What does this mean? As I've written about before with retrogrades, think of all the words that start with RE and do those activities: reflect, reorganize, repair, redo, repeat, review, redefine...etc.  Turning inward is the key and sometimes retreating from action. Think again about your current course of action and let it brew a little. Is it truly right for you? Ponder and plan but don't jump ahead yet. And, this isn't the best times for risky new ventures, such as financial investments when Mars is retrograde. (JP Morgan always consulted his astrologer about this!)  Remember too that the word recreate counts in recreation! Enjoy the Beautiful mandala art by Tamarah Alister Rose Antares at
