Chiron Retrograde

Chiron Retrograde - Correcting Wrong Turns

"And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction."

—Kurt Vonnegut

We move closer to clarity and begin to escape from chaos this week. We may start out the week with some serious concerns over bad choices and needless sacrifices. However, by week's end, we make a significant turn in our thinking, recognizing past mistakes and preparing to rectify them. Mercury slows down all week and turns direct at the beginning of next week. A the same time, Chiron is slowing down to turn retrograde on Saturday. Chiron retrograde joins the 'Back Track Brigade' of currently retrograding planets — Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Neptune. Venus has begun to pick up some forward momentum but, in Gemini, offers little help in finding the necessary self-discipline and humility that we need to make the most of this week's challenges. Nonetheless, there is enough curiosity and compassion — mixed into the restlessness — to lead us to the understanding that our strong desire for personal safety and security, spurred by the retrograding Mercury in Cancer, is actually connected to the safety and security of everyone else. This recognition helps to lead us into a promising period of reconciliation. Perhaps the biggest challenge here is patience. Mars in Aries could keep us pretty stirred up, ready to fight with passion for what we believe. But Mars will slow down over the next few months and turn retrograde in the middle of September, taking most of the steam our of our fight. Although Mars does not enter the 'shadow' of the retrograde until July 25th, we may get a taste of the coming sense of frustration this week — something like a warning of what's to come. Hopefully it will be enough of a warning that we will recognize the importance of patience, self-discipline, and humility as we begin to work towards correcting our past mistakes and 'setting our sails' on a better course.

Sunday may bring some serious post Full Moon regrets or concerns about our past choices and sacrifices. However, we should not 'cry over spilt milk' but rather, let it go and move on. There is a tendency to wild expectations and over optimism on Monday. Self-discipline will help us to avoid paying a future price for irresponsibility. The Moon is VOC all day on Tuesday and there are likely numerous challenges and frustrations to be dealt with. We'll do better to just take a step back. We do a bit better on Wednesday, as compassion and sympathy moves in to ease our path. Nonetheless, we should be careful to filter out manipulation and not allow our sympathies to be too easily aroused. We begin to recognize some comfort in self-discipline and humility on Thursday. We are more likely to be concerned with doing the job well, instead of placing the blame for slow downs and wrong turns. Cooperation and collaboration is even easier to come by on Friday, We find ways to begin to clear away some of the distrust and miscommunication that was stirred up last month by the retrograding Venus. Chiron turns retrograde on Saturday (ahead of Mercury's station direct the following day). There is new understanding of how to make the necessary course corrections and set ourselves on a more productive course.
