Retrograde Planets for 2009
Retrograde planets only affect one if they make contact to planets in ones Natal or Progressed Chart. To check this out, see your favorite astrologer and if you do not have one, I would be honored to do a reading for you. Just call 727-723-0120. Then when you plan your year for important events you will know what to expect.
The economy will slowly vary this year. Jupiter and Saturn are quincunx by sign showing a struggle in the financial world. You will be glad to hear that President Obama’s planets have a positive affect on the United States planets, which means, if there is a solution he will find it.
LUNAR NODES start in 2009 at 9.27 degree Aquarius/Leo. The nodes are in these two signs until August 22 when they exit at 0 degree and will enter the signs of Capricorn/Cancer at 29/59 degrees. They will remain in Capricorn/Cancer until March 4, 2011. The Nodes enter at the end of the sign and exit at the beginning.
The planets that will be important to watch when the nodes are in Aquarius/Leo are Uranus and the Sun. When in Capricorn/Cancer they will be Saturn and the Moon. The eclipses follow the nodes and will be in Aquarius/Leo and Capricorn/Cancer. See below for dates. If you have any planets in these signs there is a possibility that they will be eclipsed bringing them to the fore for good or bad. Pres. Obama had and has them affecting him since 2007 and continuing into the future. That was one of the reasons that we could tell that he would be our President.
A Solar Eclipse is when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign.
A Lunar Eclipse is when there is a full Moon and the Moon and Sun are in opposite signs.
In 2009 we have 2 more eclipses than usual.
January 26, Solar Eclipse – 6.30 Aquarius
February 9, Lunar Eclipse – 20.60 Leo/Aquarius
July 7, Lunar Eclipse – 15.24 Capricorn/Cancer
July 22, Solar Eclipse – 29.27 Cancer
August 6, Lunar Eclipse – 13.43 Aquarius/Leo
December 31, Lunar Eclipse – 10.15 Cancer/Capricorn
All planets retrograde except the Sun & Moon.
*One needs to realize that anything that is done between the dates of, Approaching to Leaving, of a retrograde planet cycle will be reviewed. Realize that the event the retrograde effects will not be over until the retrograde leaves. Do not make any final decisions or start any new projects until the planet goes direct. This is a good time to get caught up with all previously left undone projects.
Approaching means that it is entering the degrees that the retrograde will come back to. Anything done from this point until leaving will be repeated.
R is retrograde
D is direct (you can start anything new now)
Leaving means that it has passed the degree when it went retrograde.
SATURN ENTERD VIRGO SEPTEMBER 3, 2007 AND STAYS FOR 2 ½ YEARS TILL 2010
The year starts with Saturn R at 21.46 Virgo
Positive for those born from the 5-14th or with planets 14-22 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Scorpio
Negative for those born from the 5-14th or with planets 14-22 degrees Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Pisces, and some Virgos
Saturn causes delays and blocks what is happening. This can cause strikes. Everything will be scrutinized and restructured including finances. While in Virgo it will affect leaders, industrial, labor relationships, environmental protection as well as the intestinal tracks, appendix, lungs, nervous systems, the military, health and pets. Prescription drugs and medical plans will be of the main interest during these years and checked thoroughly. Health, which Virgo rules is the most important. Natural healing is right up Virgo’s alley. Virgo is the healer, the doctor, the nurse, the therapist, the researcher, and the engineer. We will aid the poor and sick through research and education. We are searching to find truth through testing and analysis in order to draw informed conclusions. Saturn in Virgo is a tough taskmaster.
Saving our planet and its inhabitants from extinction will rank high on the agenda. As we prepare to work our way to the year 2012, what we decide to do for the next 4 years, will be important in order to clean up the ozone layer. Let’s get down to brass tacks and work hard to clean up the environment. We each have a duty to heal ourselves and stay healthy and to heal the planet. Saturn and Virgo do a thorough job. President Obama has his energy planet Mars and his progressed Sun in Virgo and he will be working hard for the next 2 years.
During a Saturn R it is the time to bring structure to that which is chaotic or to review those things that you know need changing.
SATURN RETROGRADE (includes orb Approaching and Leaving)
September 28, 2008, 14.54 Virgo Approaching retrograde
December 31, 2008 Saturn 21.46 Virgo turns R
May 17, 2009 Saturn returns to 14.54 Virgo and goes D
August 22, Saturn returns to 21.46 Virgo Leaves
Whatever is being worked on from September 28, 2008 will be reviewed and changed until Saturn forges ahead on August 22, 2009.
(Interesting wasn’t that when our economy hit the dust? So, it can take until August 22, 2009 to see it change.)
*You can, however, start anything that is new after May 17th.
MERCURY RETROGRADE (includes orb approaching and leaving)
Make no decisions, sign no contracts. If you do, realize that it may need to be done over.
*One big mistake that people make is that they think that anything they do before mercury goes R is fine. They do not realize that for about 2 weeks, as it is approaching, that anything that is done at that time mercury will pass over 2 more time and be reviewed.
Therefore 2 weeks before the retrograde you have to be aware that anything you do will be reviewed. Wait until the planet goes direct for the final decision or to do anything new. Buy no automobiles or make repairs unless it cannot be avoided. Get a guarantee and double check everything. If you move and want it to be temporary, than it is alright. Travel plans will be affected.
