Our Futures Are Defined by Our Present Choices

Our Futures Are Defined by Our Present Choices Michelle Karén

Pluto is retrograde until October 8. Its shadow period remains until January 30, 2023. The degree traveled in June (28º36'–28º23' Capricorn) is represented in the Sabian symbols by “a woman reading tea leaves.” It is always very tempting to want to know what is coming. Yet we should remember that Pluto retrograde invites us to look at ourselves in depth, diving into those areas we are not overly proud of or may even feel embarrassed about. Our futures are defined by our choices in the present. The more we face our shadows and become as transparent as possible, the greater what is to come will be.

Mercury turns direct on June 3 at 4º51' Gemini. Its shadow period continues until June 19. This degree is symbolized by “a revolutionary magazine asking for action.” Mercury retrograde in its own sign created a lot of turbulence, changes of heart, lost objects, misunderstandings, and mixed messages in the past three weeks. The good news is that it also helped us redefine ourselves and rethink many aspects of our lives, so out of the chaos, it creates new order. Now the time has come to move forward with a completely different dynamic. Through radical shifts, we are propelled into our true destinies.
