What To Do For Mars And Saturn Retrograde (Part 43)

Have the retrogrades hit you yet?

Are you feeling a little slowed down?

Do you allow for this? Make time for this? This is my SPRING RESOLUTION. To slow down and sit with whatever comes up — fear, panic, sadness, elation, relaxation, nothing…  at slowing down.

Moon in Aries not sooo comfortable with slow but the Moon enters Taurus in the Big City in about 45 minutes so I’ll be right on time 🙂

EDITED TO ADD: Moon in Taurus now.



But seriously. I’m serious. Seriously serious. Can you, will you, allow yourself to STOP during these months. Even in the midst of the Grand Cross whirlwind and April eclipses when you may feel…

What do you have to lose? 

 I can’t figure out what’s next if I don’t stop so I am going to be ON YOU about this.

Where is Saturn for you now? Where is Mars? And where oh where is JUPITER. Because you will see hope and starry skies amidst the stall.


And speaking of stall, I posted on Facebook just now a question: Do I dare? And a poet friend chimed in, calling me “Eliotic” as in  T.S. Eliot because it sounded like I was referencing Prufrock.

“Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think they will sing to me.”

I remember. I learned this poem from my sister. She used to quote those lines in a cute voice. Do I dare to eat a peach!” 

This is a time of not knowing. WHICH IS WHY I AM TELLING YOU TO EMBRACE THE STOP. And if you don’t like that word, then choose another.

I give you full permission to putter and to work as you must but PLEASE do not fill up every moment with… stuff and Amazon shopping and internet and striving and solutions. The more quiet the more space the more clarity.

And now I will take my own advice and sign off for now…

Love, MP
