Retrograde Watch
This is a most unusual month, with no planets or asteroids changing direction. This means that WE don't have to change direction. We can go ahead with what we’re doing, confident that we can continue doing it. Retrogrades mean going over old ground, returning to the past, retracting, delay. A turn direct means that we can face our tiller to the future, and move ahead. Either way, there is a disruption in our activities when there is a planetary station. There are no such disruptions this month. For better or worse, energetic manifestation continues on its track during July.

Looking ahead, there are only two stations in August. Ceres turns retrograde in Aries on August 13, and we will be ready to have her back off from her feisty Aries stance. Pluto turns direct on August 26, and we may not be ready for Pluto’s catharsis.
