Life is amazing how cycles will align. The seemingly random movements of celestial bodies produce a staccato and then melodious symphony, rhythms emerging about of apparent chaos.
One such particular note strikes this month as two outer planets make simultaneous stations; one direct and the other retrograde.
Sunday, August 11, Jupiter turns direct and Uranus turns retrograde. Both planets have a similar sort of electric stimulation to them, so it could be a bright and enthusiastic day for many. For a smaller set of people August 11 might be a significant turning point in life.
Planets appear to stop and move backward in the sky due to the differences in the radiuses of their orbits around the Sun. The planet closer to the Sun (in this case Earth) seems to turn the corner faster, if you will, leaving the outer planets seeming to appear to move backwards.
Next time you’re in a roundabout intersection and you’re in the inner lane; as you turn cars that were on your side appear to fall back as you have tighter turning radius.
July 2019 was not exactly a fun month with its configurations. I am hoping that this months lighter, more engaging configurations will have a more productively smooth resonance with us.
