We See More Clearly Now
Saturn turns direct on July 7 at 4?49´ Scorpio. The shadow period continues until October 14. The degree it travels this month is represented in the Sabian symbols by "a massive rocky shore resists the pounding of the sea." We find that our core values, what we stand for, and who we are in our divinity cannot be swayed, no matter the ebb and flow of our external circumstances. Our inner strength and our personal discipline are our authorities.
Uranus turns retrograde on July 17 at 12?31´ Aries. Its shadow period will remain until April 3, 2014. The degree it travels this month is represented in the Sabian symbols by "an unexploded bomb reveals an unsuccessful social protest." As the lies, corruptions, and manipulations are being exposed, more and more people are waking up to the truth — which is very different from what we had been led to believe was reality — and rebelling against the illusions. It may not be sufficient yet to completely overthrow the old paradigm, but society shifts are well underway.
Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 13. Its shadow period (the time it takes to reach the exact same degree it started its retrogradation on) extends until March 4, 2014. The degrees it travels in July (5?13´ and 4?40´ Pisces) are represented in the Sabian symbols by "a parade of army officers in full dress" and "a church bazaar." The façade of the establishment needs to be embellished to cover the fact that what lies underneath may not be as glamorous. It is a time to see through the illusions and recognize that all that glitters may not be gold.
