Timothy Glenn ~ This is So Retro

Timothy Glenn is on a roll! I’m so grateful and honored that he continues to offer his additional astro insights on this blog. Indeed, I’ve sensed a rocky road ahead … but even rocky roads offer blessings along the way. Buckle up and check your shock absorbers. What a spectacular time to be alive!

This Is So Retro
by Timothy Glenn

It’s official. Uranus has gone into retrograde motion. Ordinarily, that wouldn’t seem especially noteworthy, much less foreboding. But then we consider the context.

Pluto has been retrograde since April 29.
Saturn has been retrograde since June 4.
Neptune has been retrograde since June 28.
Chiron has been retrograde since July 19.
Jupiter has been retrograde since July 28.

And then we can factor in the phenomenon of Pluto operating in Capricorn in both the Tropical and Sidereal Zodiacs simultaneously as we head into the grand climax of the United States Pluto Return. This has produced a massive amount of pressure that has been building up throughout these months. It feels like a revolutionary powder keg waiting for someone to strike the proverbial match.

So now we add Uranus retrograde as of August 24.

The match has been struck.

Revelations Activate Revolutions

Uranus rules Aquarius, and has been known as the Revelator, the Awakener, the Idealist, the Revolutionary, the Liberator, the Humanitarian, the Reformer and so forth. When Uranus begins affecting any part of our individual or collective charts, the first thing he does is look for whatever is holding us down or holding us back. He shines bright light into our darkest corners, heedless of who might get blinded by the light.

His original and creative thinking processes immediately start formulating schemes for setting us free. Traditional thinkers often regard his mind as devious, wily and conniving. But every single plot he hatches out is aimed at awakening and liberating us, even from our own delusions. Uranus likes to push us out beyond the parameters of religious beliefs, philosophical systems and societal norms.

A lot of people fear the influence of Uranus because he can upset their little apple carts. Indeed, he can be unpredictable and therefore disruptive. He relies on the strategy of a hide and pounce hunter. He revels in the element of surprise. Unlike Neptune the Slow Dissolver, he waits for the opportune moment, and then strikes with a lightning bolt of Revelation.

Uranus is also known for exhibiting a bit of an attitude. Over the next several months, the creepazoids who have been running and ruining the world are going to hear his battle cry: “Screw this!”

The Aquarian Air Force is ready to unleash Truth Bombs from the sky.

Back to Retrogrades

As we move into September with all the aforementioned retrograde planetary pressure, we could use a little help from a little friend: Mercury. As the ruler of Gemini, Mercury takes charge of accessing and dispensing information. It’s not simply a matter of taking in data and spitting it straight back out again. Mercury loves to amass entire data sets, and then amalgamate, organize and creatively reformat them prior to communicating. It’s like taking a decade’s worth of experience, and distilling it down to a fifteen minute presentation.

The periods of Mercury retrograde are already fairly well known in the general public. In a typical year, Mercury will go into retrograde motion four times, for about three weeks each time. But after resuming direct motion, Mercury then has to retrace his steps back over the terrain where he had just finished confusing the hell out of everybody. This is where we slog our way through the Shadow of the Mercury Retrograde.

Some of us also take note of the period before Mercury stations retrograde. We call this period the Foreshadow or pre-shadow, because we are moving through the very degrees where we know Mercury is going to back over us after he shifts into reverse. And upon completing the actual retrograde, he stations direct and shifts back into first gear, so he can run over us again in the Shadow period.

Mercury entered this foreshadowing period on August 21, merely three days before Uranus began its own retrograde. And the Mercury Retrograde will officially kick off on September 10, the day before the 21st anniversary of the 2001 September 11 false flag attack. The Mercury Retrograde ends on October 2, followed by the Shadow period until October 26.

October Surprises

Another major player in our current retrograde game is Pluto. He was the first to go retrograde, and he will be the first to bundle up this pressurized energy and bulldoze his way forward. On October 8, Pluto will station direct in preparation for bringing the United States Pluto Return to its grand climax. On December 29, for the third and final time this year, Pluto will cross over its exact location in the chart for the 1776 Declaration of Independence. The gloves are coming off.

When elections are held in early November, we often witness impactful revelations or events that carry the potential to shift the outcome of the election. More often than not, an October surprise has been deliberately planned well in advance. Political parties and their candidates will always try to spin any narrative to their own advantage, so our sincere discernment will prove to be crucial during the coming months.

Pluto’s function in Capricorn includes unveiling what has been concealed. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, will station direct on October 23. Saturn’s advice for these tumultuous times would be: if you believe you must take sides, choose the side of universal truth. Facts will continue to be laid out in front of you, and sometimes the truth hurts.

However, any time truth hurts, the pain is merely showing us where we still hold mental and emotional attachments to inaccurate narratives.

Real Eyes Realize Real Lies

Aside from the obvious initials of Belief System, the word “lie” appears in the midst of the word “believe”. Human societies have conditioned us for ages to fixate our minds on various ideas, and then declare them true or false. And all too often, reams of fine print accompany a single concept that has an agenda behind it.

Uranus and Company are offering us an adventure in free thinking. Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without accepting it.” We are free to perceive without believing. We are free to regard ourselves as ever-changing bundles of ever-changing perceptions in the midst of an ever-changing universe. And we are free to turn off the so-called mainstream propaganda programming and say, “Screw this!”

We are also free to cultivate our empathy, intuition and sense of resonance as we observe the information war on the world stage. We are free to question everything. What if it’s all scripted? What if it’s all a game of divide and conquer? What if it’s all smoke and mirrors? What if it’s only there to distract us from who and what we truly are? What if most of the technology is no more than a dog and pony show? What if it’s just a movie?

You are free to determine the answers within your own Reality Tunnel, and you are free to change your answers as the story unfolds.

Who’s Who in the Zoo?

You might be tempted to lay bets as to which actors on the world stage are working for the dark side and which ones are working for the light. But you might not want to bet the farm.

There are signs along the roadside that say “Plot Twists Ahead”. Who are the white hats and who are the black hats? For that matter, who are the grey hats and who are the moles? Who are the double agents and who are the triple agents? Who are the ones walking the tightrope in the middle, waiting to see who wins, so they can join in and pretend to have been true to the cause all along?

Who are puppets and who are puppeteers? Who wrote the scripts? Who are the producers and who are the directors?

Mental and emotional attachments to persons, places, roles and specific outcomes aren’t recommended. When living in Sedona back in 1999, a friend and I would spend hours sharing data and comparing notes. We got into the habit of ending each discussion by saying: “Well, it’s a fascinating movie, and we have great seats. Pass the popcorn.”

Mars in Gemini for 7 Months

At the very beginning of August, Mars crossed over the North Node of the Moon and Uranus. This fired a shot across the bow of the ship of the old world, signaling a time of karmic reckoning.

On August 20, Mars entered the Tropical sign of Gemini. As mentioned earlier: Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, entered the pre-shadow of its current retrograde the following day, and then Uranus began its retrograde three days later on August 24. Mars and the Sun squared each other on August 25. If there had been any doubt as to whether the match had been struck to light the powder keg, Mars erased all doubt.

Mars has officially entered the fray. He will heat up the information wars and get a boost from an exact sextile to Jupiter on September 1, enhancing that energy by teaming up with Saturn by way of an exact trine with Saturn on September 28. Since Mars will go retrograde on October 30, he will exactly trine Saturn two more times, the next falling on November 28. The third won’t occur until March 30, 2023.

Another not-so-subtle aspect will see Mars exactly squaring Neptune three times; October 12 and November 19 of 2022, and March 14 of 2023. The Mars/Neptune squares promise to shatter illusions. With Mars going retrograde on October 30, don’t expect the Great Pumpkin to show up with goodies the next evening.

Dear New Age Fluff Bunnies: This is to inform you of a significant shipping delay of your order for puppy dogs, rainbows and butterflies. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are compensating you with a complimentary surprise package of lightning bolts. Yours Truly, the Matrix Team.

Here in the northern hemisphere, when someone asks if we’re ready for fall, the fun rejoinder is: “Do you mean autumn? Or the fall of civilization?”
