Ann Kreilkamp ~ Three Planets to go Retrograde May 11-14

Adding context to yesterday’s Venus Retrograde post, here’s another astro-weather update from my friend, permaculturist and astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp. Again, these transits hit very close to home in my chart. My Moon sits at 1 degree 14 minutes Aquarius, so all this Aquarian action triggers a popcorn reaction in my natal Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine in Air.

Hold on to your hats and prepare to back up. However far you’ve come to this point — especially regarding the most important matter, to last all this year, of working with the Saturn/Pluto conjunction pressing on us from mid-January on — is turning even more intense from now through the end of September.

So many filled with or identical to bad habits or patterns from the past; all these must be let go if we are to fully surrender to the death and rebirthing process that Pluto demands..

Saturn, with the longest cycle, has the longest retrograde period, this year from May 11, backing up into late Capricorn on July 2, then finally, on September 29th, turning to go direct at 25°02 Capricorn. Saturn will not complete whatever unfinished business this retrograde period signifies until the first few days of January 2021, when it finally moves over 1°57 Aquarius again, the degree upon which it turned [on May 11].
