Over the past few months, many planets have been in retrograde and there have been three compelling eclipses. All of this can affect your zodiac sign.
What is retrograde and how can it affect your horoscope?
The retrograde motion is when planets appear to be moving in the backward direction. Now, as we all know, scientifically this does not happen. Planets only move in one direction, forever. They only appear to be moving in the backward direction and that is called “retrograde”, for example when you hear someone say “my Mercury is in retrograde”.
Why do the planets appear to be moving backwards, you ask? Well, this is because of the way the planets and the Sun are positioned in comparison to Earth, in the solar system. When the Earth passes by a planet because its orbit is faster than some other planets, they can appear to be going in the opposite direction.
Various planets going into retrograde can alter a person’s moods, personality and their horoscope. For example, when Venus, the planet of Love, goes into retrograde weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your love life can become more pronounced or your exes can come back into your life. Each planet’s retrograde motion can affect you differently. Usually, when a planet is in retrograde, it is safe to assume that things aren’t going to go well in your life so it’s best to lay low for the retrograde period.
Keeping in mind one of the longest Blood Moons we might ever be able to experience, the universe has been putting up an exciting show for the stargazers around the world. Since we’re now progressing towards the end of this retrograde season, certain things in your life highlighted by the universe might be getting clearer to you.
Here’s how your zodiac sign might be impacted:
It’s the season of love for you. But you won’t be looking forward to the drama it’ll bring along. If you’re already in a relationship, this might help make things smoother and easier for you. Try to figure out why you haven’t been appreciating the person in your life and try fixing it. If you’re single, gear up for an unexpected turn of events. An ex-lover might be coming back to you with more passion than ever before. When it comes to work, you wont have to face much opposition, so don’t be afraid to push ahead and climb the ladder.
Get ready for another round of family drama in your life. You might be about to receive the shock of your life but it is important to acknowledge that it can also be positive and doesn’t necessarily has to be about your family, but can also be related to your work or career. This might be the right time to let go of something you’ve been working on. When it comes to family, you might find yourself on the edge of a new beginning.
During this time, you’ll have to work harder to achieve anything that you truly want in life. Anyone who has authority over you may test your goals and you’ll be forced to prove yourself. Its better to try not to react to provocation. During the beginning of September, you might feel its easier to improve your skills and develop your talents. You might also notice exciting new opportunities for both personal and professional success.

During this time, you might be presented with challenges to overcome to reach a certain goal or just to be yourself. Make sure you keep your cool and not lose your temper over things that don’t matter too much. Choose your battles carefully and a tactful retreat might be better for you in the long run.
Rejoice! Its birthday time! During this time, you’ll find it easier to express your true identity and be yourself. Try to keep the focus on yourself and your goals for the year ahead. It’s time to make a fresh start. The best use of your energy will be to express yourself and identify your goals. So get going and keep the ball rolling!
You will feel a fresh sense of enthusiasm and self-confidence, which means it’s a good time to start new projects. This can help you feel strong and courageous and can help you use your initiative to tackle difficult tasks. Moreover, it may feel like everything and everyone is against you, which may make you fell isolated and discouraged, but patience and persistence is key.
You will feel a new sense of creativity and energy during this time. Which will lead you to feel more playful and enthusiastic. The extremely fortunate full moon makes it easier for you to improve your skills and develop your talent. Use your self-confidence and positivity to make a good impression on people who matter.
Normally, you’re convinced that you have all the answers but during this time, you’ll find yourself in a situation where you know nothing and you don’t even want to try to pretend that you do. This might make you feel a bit uncomfortable because you’re usually the wise sage. It seems like the universe has decided that its time for you to be schooled.
There seems to be something wrong with your money during the end of the retrograde season. You need to pay extra attention to how you earn and spend your money. Fortunately, by the end of the month there’s every indication that if you are judicious and prudent, you’ll turn obstacles into options. Since the fact that your expenses may be exceeding your income, you will have to maintain a balance and get rid of extra spending.
It’s not easy having to stop when you really want to keep going. Or to feel pressured to keep pushing when you are just too exhausted. During this time, you might be prone to falling under one of the categories. There might be a certain goal that you really want to move forward with but for some reason, you’re being pushed to shut it down. It’s better to try to bring back the energy when you’re not motivated at all.
You might find yourself in a bit of a situation where you’ve fallen into a pattern that is not serving you right. For example, you might be taking up an unhealthy lifestyle like too much sugar, or caffeine or something much worse. You might be trying to self-meditate or talk yourself out of these habits. You have to confront your demons and give yourself a wake-up call.
