Retrograding Back Into Yourself

Cosmic Insider | Retrograding Back Into Yourself



Last weekend, I had the immense pleasure of attending the ISAR (International Society of Astrological Research) Conference in Colorado.


Getting to feel our shared passion and meet (and hug!) astrologers, Astrology Hub community members, and most of the Astrology Hub team was an indescribable joy.


The photos below will give you a little peek into how magical this was, and you can also check out this behind-the-scenes slideshow for more good vibes!

We also recorded the a spontaneous podcast episode with Rick Levine and Jenn Zahrt that summed up the special energy of this event.

And on to the astrology of the week ahead…


This week, we have Mercury shifting direction in the sky.


Mercury retrograde gets a bad rap but this retrograde in Libra gives you an amazing opportunity to tune into yourself and become more clear and centered in who you are.


Shamanic Astrologer Sheridan Semple joined me on the Weekly Weather to talk about this and why her theme for the week is “retrograding back into ourselves”. 


In addition to sharing her insights for the coming astrological transits, she also gives aromatherapy recommendations for you to work with!


So here are your tips from Sheridan to work with the energy of the days ahead…


❤️ Monday: Tune into your heart & walk your sacred path.

Venus moves into Virgo and conjuncts Regulus, “the heart of the lion”. This is an opportunity to tune into your heart-based callings and sacred work. Sheridan recommends the essences of Rose, Geranium, and Blue Spruce for working with this energy.


🦋 Tuesday-Thursday: Feel, heal, & transform.

There are no major transits so Sheridan says you should watch the Moon and see what it passes over in your own natal chart. Over the next days, it will pass over Pluto and Saturn, giving us all the opportunity to feel and heal some emotions. She recommends Vetiver, an essence that helps you through times of transformation.


🌅 Friday: Slow down & watch the sunset.

Mercury goes retrograde in Libra encouraging you to step off the hamster wheel, slow down, and get creative. Anchor that energy with the essence of Rhododendron, Artemisia Vulgaris, Artemisia Annua, or Basils. Sheridan’s assignment for you is to watch the sunset and the moonrise tonight.


🍵 Saturday: Fill your cup & celebrate yourself.

The Full Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune. Celebrate something special and unique about YOU. Have a simple ceremony where you fill a cup with tea or water. Share your celebration by saying it into your cup and drinking it. You can even incorporate essential oils if you want. Sheridan recommends Ocean Pine or Yarrow.


🌞 Sunday: Rise & shine.

The Sun trines Uranus allowing for a flowing relationship between change and the light you want to shine. This is an opportunity to step into your light and adjust your self-perceptions. Again, celebrate YOU.


To get the full scoop from Sheridan (and learn all about the sacred Virgo priestess energy on offer during this time), check out the full episode.
