Today I awoke to SNOW! Will the surprises of these days never cease? It’s yet to be the Autumn Equinox and already the yard is covered with a heavy blanket of snow. Like following the astrological forecast, watching the weather keeps you well-prepared, even delighted, at the unfolding of the cosmic/earth events. The snow is most welcome here in Colorado, cooling down the fires and slowing us all down in its softness. I brought all my flowering plants in a few days ago and in another few days I can put them out again for their last month or so of blossoming until winter comes in for real. I have moved down from the high country and Arthur and I have settled in nicely at a friend’s place on the plains. Excellent mountain views and a lovely yard for star-gazing. With Uranus moving through my 4th house of HOME and Mars following right behind, I knew I would be moving around quite a bit these days and, prepared, I have been moving! Being in the KNOW helps you be in the NOW. I am testament to that!
When planets move retrograde they support inner work. Slow down. Get inside your choices, your perspectives. Get inside your ‘whys’ and ‘hows’. Mars retrograde encourages you to question your actions, to delve into where you put your focus of attention and the actions that come from that focus.
