“Feeling Froggy?”

horoscopes, 2017 horoscopes, weekly horoscopes, feeling froggy, Uranus retrograde, Uranus, Venus, Venus in Cancer, Cancer

We just had a 1st quarter moon on Sunday. That usually signifies a time to kickstart intentions and ideas you had in mind at last week’s new moon. Or before. Then comfort-loving Venus wades into watery Cancer on Monday. We’re bound to seek out more comfort, especially if we’ve been uncomfortable or too busy with a whole bunch of nothing. We’re more prone to feel froggy or anxious to get something going.

All this nicely complements how Uranus the Upstart appears to move backwards from the Earth’s perspective on Thursday morning, August 3rd. What kinds of things can we expect when an uber-upstarter planet like Uranus goes retrograde?

Before we speak on the sparky upstart planet, let’s start with understanding retrograde planets.

A retrograding planet appears to create a compression chamber of related “problems.” This pressure builds until the planet finds an unusual expression of its nature. For example, when Mercury retrogrades, we experience that planet’s compression chamber with anything that gets us from point A to B. This includes problems with communication, travel, or business.

Similarly, Uranus’ natural penchant for sparking action, rebelling against the grain, and inspiring us to express our uniqueness bottles up during a retrograde. This doesn’t mean that we stop sparking, rebelling, or expressing, though. Perhaps we feel more frustrated about those things. So, we might have more trouble finding socially acceptable ways to find release.

For instance, Occupy Wall Street protesters took over NYC’s Zuccotti Park during a Uranus retrograde in 2011. When the city forced the demonstrators out of their occupation of the park, they had to change their methods after Uranus went direct. They had to come up with sustainable means of keeping up their activism without being self-contained in one location.

On a personal level, you’re likely anxious to break loose from things or people, like dead-end jobs or relationships, that tie us down. But it’s important to have style and grace in how you break away. Otherwise, abrupt shifts could cause more harm than good.

If you’re feeling the pressure of Uranus’ retrograde, heed its messages for upturning what’s become oppressive or useless in your life without violence, whether it’s physical, emotional, or verbal. The pressure of the retrograde prods us to action, not just drama. You can embrace the clarity of change that Uranus brings with focus, optimism, and innovation.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

You understand better than most that to know yourself is the first step toward ruling yourself or others well. So, what happens when you learn you don’t know yourself as well you think? Maybe it’s time to claim a self-awareness day, much like how some folks take mental health days from work. You might choose to write out why something ugly erupted from you recently. Or you can rush right into all the things you woulda coulda shoulda done differently. Yet, you must also sit with the emotional truth that there’s always more of you to learn and know. It might even be good that you stumbled into a dark closet of your character. Gives you a chance to remember or learn where you’ve packed away treasures and burdensome pressures.

Affirmation:
I relish myself as an undiscovered country to know and rule better.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Although you frequently keep a cost-benefit analysis running in the back of your mind, remember that some benefits aren’t easy to spot. It’s all about being clear on your priorities. For instance, if too much of your life has become about money, like time is money, saving money, earning more, then put more stock in cultivating rich and nurturing relationships, especially with colleagues. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t watch how much energy, time or money you expend on or for others. But your truest treasures are probably more in the twinkles of another’s eye than gold or metal.

Affirmation:
I know some intangible benefits are worth way more than the apparent costs.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Sometimes rifts happen between people, not because you’re not on the same page. You might not even have been on the same damn bookshelf. But you probably didn’t know that until you heard a record scratch in the conversation. With Venus appearing at the top of your sign’s sky now, the best thing to do is to stay pleasant yet honest. You also don’t have to become a forecaster. You don’t have to know what’s going to happen next with a relationship to call for a pause. Doesn’t matter if it’s a “friend” from Facebook or the homegirl you’ve known since the third grade. Resets and ejections are part of living and life.

Affirmation:
I reset and reboot off-kilter relationships as pleasantly and guilt-free as possible.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Something feels out of alignment between what you revere as your highest of values and what happens in your everyday life. Some measure of that dissonance is normal. After all, sometimes the whole point of life is the struggle to reach for the beauty of our dreams and ideals. Yet, the dross of broken promises and dreams surrounds us. But then there’s the truth of just not feeling it. Like how you try to like something, like a diet or new exercise, and you just don’t…and you won’t. It doesn’t mean the intention of the pursuit is wrong. It might be a matter of how or the method. It’s time to look closer at that rather than push through it.

Affirmation:
I use the right methods to match the ideals & dreams that matter to me.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

It might seem fair to think that your restlessness is as hard-wired in you as “day” in parts of the week. But it’s also easy to miss what that need to roam does for you. (And it is something that you desperately need now.) Crossing new ground feels like discovering new parts of yourself, even if it’s been travailed by millions of others. You relish new experiences because they are YOUR encounters of someone or something. Few places show the same “face” to whoever visits it. So, roam a little more, even if it’s just to a less familiar part of your city. It’ll lift your spirits out of the blues.

Affirmation:
I roam into new areas, even if commonly known by others, to appreciate and discover new dimensions of myself.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Sentimental might not be one of your buzzwords. (Though a streak of that erupts out of you now and then.) But responsibility for what’s precious, even if it holds no special emotional value for you, is something to which you can relate. Tangibly, we are talking about giving extra care to appliances, clothing, and other valuable objects. But there are less tangible things, like people’s time or feelings that need special treatment, too. Appreciate more what’s unique in something or another, and you’ll naturally begin to intuit how to show a little more love.

Affirmation:
I am an excellent caretaker of what and who is unique and precious in my life.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

There’s another way to think about the phrase, “Think globally, act locally.” You can tighten your circle of control as you broaden your circle of awareness. For example, reflexology and pressure points from Eastern medicine work on this principle. You can tend to your kidneys indirectly by pressing specific parts of your feet. Sometimes a drawer of your work desk can reveal more about your relationship to your work and your world. So, reflect on the “little” things around you to gain a greater grasp on what you can do about the bigger issues in your life. You might be trying to change the world from the wrong starting point.

Affirmation:
I widen my reach in the world by refining my grasp of the “little” things around me.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

You can often better gauge your earning potential from your feelings than your resume or checks. There might be a few days where it might be hard to get a read on your feelings. So, yes, this could affect your bottom line, even if you earn the same amount each week. (You might not spend the same amount this week!) Perhaps the quickest and easiest way to stabilize your feelings-finance connection will be not to confuse self-pity with self-care. Self-pity often looks for instant gratification and short-term windfalls. Instead, self-care nurtures defined long-term goals and short-term rest periods. Yield more to that self-care and your feelings and finances will improve dramatically.

Affirmation:
I use self-care to bolster my feelings and my finances.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Your default setting is to rise to the top. That doesn’t necessarily have to be what others say is the top or best. But that’s a common starting point for you. And perhaps that’s where you might have problems now. You’ll have to freshen up your definition of best and top. Sometimes, though, as you figure things out, you might not feel like doing much of anything. If you decide to do nothing, be sure you’re doing that for the right reasons. Don’t confuse that with being ornery or defiant. Do what you must. But you don’t have to strive for extra until you feel that thrill to reach for new personal bests.

Affirmation:
I am resetting a new sense of best and the top that works best for me.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

You might feel an acute dissonance between the pleasantness of your spoken words and the savagery that rages in your mind. Or, at times, you experience the reverse. The savagery probably comes from a fear that your actions are misunderstood. Fear often buddies up with anger. The best way to deal with the fear is first to acknowledge it. You can do your best to clarify the intentions of your actions. But some folks are just going to believe what they want to believe. Commit to consistency and stay as pleasant as you can.

Affirmation:
I can only be responsible for the good I try to do, not for evil others are only willing to think of me.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Your thoughts might be complicated and nuanced at times. But your needs can often be very simple. You mostly want to be able to afford the variety of things that interest you. With friends, you don’t necessarily need the most interesting people in the world. You mostly need them to be interested in you enough and vice-versa. Yet, what can complicate relationships is somebody trying to be more interesting than interested. In other words, the more a group or even a friend tries to stand out rather than just stand out, the more you’re likely to pull away.

Affirmation:
: I am happiest when interested in people or things, not the struggle to be interesting.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

You’re better able to use your magnetic charm and appeal. That doesn’t mean, though, you shouldn’t boost what you have. Freshen up your appearance, even if you only change the scent of your body wash. Give attention and focus to what you desire. But not too much. Appreciate that more of what you want is also moving toward you. The harder you try to make something happen, the faster you might push it away from you. This isn’t just abouth the “law of attraction,” though. You must make room for what you want to draw toward you.

Affirmation:
I make more room for the blessings I attract to me.
