This Summer we have so many retrograde planets in the sky. Here are the planets that will be retrograde during the summer months of 2018 and some keywords. (Do know that I am following Vedic (Sidereal) Astrology. Therefore, the signs will be different from Western [Tropical] Astrology.)
Jupiter Rx (March 9, – July 10, 2018 in Libra: Contract, decrease, unconventional, unethical, immoral
Saturn Rx (April 18, – September 6, 2018) in Sagittarius: Mistakes, out of bounds, undisciplined, karma
Pluto Rx (April 22, – September 30, 2018) in Sagittarius: lack of control, surfacing of repressed feelings
Mars Rx (June 26 – August 28, 2018) in Capricorn: Lack of action, cutting, loss, regress, anxiety, introvert
Neptune Rx (June 18, – November 24, 2018) in Aquarius: mistrust, feelings of “it’s too good to be true”
Mercury Rx (July 26 – August 18, 2018) in Cancer: Review, research, regroup, re-evaluate, re-do
Uranus Rx (August 7, – December 6, 2018) in Aries: eccentricities
How Will This Effect Your Love Life?
In the summer of 2018, the planets are asking us to do two things: 1) Work on the love we have for ourselves and 2) Focus on the current relationships. Many of the keywords mentioned above are part of the reasons and triggers that we are going to re-evaluate ourselves, our relationships as well as the meaning of love. The planets want us to back it up a bit and take another look at how we are with ourselves and with our relationships.
Have we been treating ourselves or our partners fairly? Have we invested the time and effort into doing what is right for ourselves and/or our partner? Did we dig in deep enough to heal all our past pain, scars, mistakes, actions, etc.? Have we neglected some part of ourselves or our relationships? This summer, many things will resurface because the Universe knows we need to do a little more work on putting some things to rest, heal our pain, overcome our fears, get to the truth, look underneath that unturned stone and more.
For some of us, this may mean seeing a counselor, therapist, healer, psychic, astrologer, or numerologist in order to heal, get answers and love in a healthier way. For others, this may mean healing so we can improve and/or advance in our current relationships by breaking the patterns that have held back the relationship and ourselves. For some, in order to heal, it may mean letting go of your current relationship. If this is the case, it’s fine as you can trust in the Universe to match you up with your perfect divine match when you are ready to move into another relationship. This also includes single men and women, as this may be a time for reflecting on past relationships. Perhaps redefining what love is, what you want in a relationship and who you want for a partner will be something that you work out over the summer.
Some people may feel that this summer is a vulnerable and confusing time for them, which is understandable as the planets will have an intense effect on everyone. Retrograde planets do give way to revisiting the past and creating second chances in the most unexpected manners. The really good news is that everyone will receive some great blessings for the work and efforts they put into with the energy of love and rediscovering what love is truly about. Globally, this is an important time to do this work.
For those who feel like a hermit, are alone, or are looking for love, the most vital thing you must know is that you are not alone and that you have the love of the Universe with you at all times. It’s just a matter of doing a little extra work to understand and improve your ability to love yourself, as well as give and receive love.
Looking further into the future Venus will be transiting into Libra on November 16, 2018 in the nakshatra of Chitra, which in Vedic Astrology is known as “the bright one.” Libra is the natural 7th house of the zodiac. The 7th house represents marriage and long-term partnerships. Chitra is an auspicious star and with Venus there, it lends to our ability to achieve the relationship of our desires or goals and most importantly true love. Now with all that homework and effort we put into the summertime, it is very likely you will either meet a man or woman of your dreams or be in a most wonderful place with your current partner considering you are still together come the end of summer.
In the meantime, enjoy this truly healing and transformational journey. It’s an amazing time to be alive with this wonderful opportunity to heal, advance, understand and experience of the true meaning and power of love.
