Six Retrograde Planets in August 2021

Five planets are retrograde all month now: Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron, with Uranus turning Retrograde on 21st August, making it six.

In general, when a planet is Retrograde, the life area it expresses gets held back, and our consciousness turns inward for review and consolidation. This is a time to pull back.

It is a time to have clarity of mind.

It is a time to have clarity of perception as to the nature of the message the Retrograde planet is delivering to you and insisting upon.

It is not a good time to start new projects, though these may arise out of the reflection and consolidation that happened during the Retrograde period.
