May 2020 Retrogrades: Saturn, Venus & Jupiter

Saturn Retrograde May 10, 2020 - September 28, 2020: Saturn Retrograde awakens the skeletons in our closet. We are confronted by the perceived mistakes of our past. The people we have wronged. The "correct" paths we did not follow. Our limitations are challenged, especially as the feelings of powerlessness in our current environment is almost inevitable. With Saturn being in retrograde nearly 1/3 of the year (every year), it is not a "dramatic" planet and, for most, is practically unnoticed. Saturn Retrograde forces us to accept imperfection and allows us to color outside the lines—an excellent time for deep self-reflection and the release of societal structure. The (temporary) death of perfectionism.


Venus Retrograde May 13, 2020 - June 25, 2020: Every 19 months, Venus goes retrograde and forces us to deal with the emotional baggage of low self-worth, failed romance, and the ways we earn a living. Venus Retrograde exemplifies inner-honesty, awareness, and vulnerability. As we learn to become honest with ourselves, the world around us responds in kind. 


Venus Retrograde impacts how we perceive our talents and, even more so, how we earn a living from those talents. This is an excellent time to confront fears of financial instability, and instead, shine a bright light on self-improvement. It is never too late to improve yourself. It is now time to focus on your unique talents and share them with the world. 


If you can, avoid making big decisions about your relationship or even your job until July. Any feelings of discontent may be "artificially" intensified by Venus Retrograde. On the other side of the spectrum, it's also quite common to find yourself becoming overly attached to relationships that are not beneficial for you. It will pass! 


Jupiter Retrograde May 14 - September 12, 2020: Pay close attention to your déjà vu experiences, as they will be of key importance as Jupiter goes direct in mid-September. You will be able to see (and understand!) the underlying theme of your career and financial course. When Jupiter is in retrograde, we take an inner journey and find better "mental footing" in regards to our physical life experience. Do not commit to any business plans or international relocation until late-November 2020. 


With Saturn, Venus, Jupiter (and Pluto!) in retrograde, now is not the time to make big decisions or make drastic life plans. Unless, of course, you absolutely must. The next ten weeks will transform nearly every part of our lives. Love, finances, and our societal belief system.


May 21-22, 2020 will be a powerful Dark Moon for all Banishing Rituals. It will be the perfect time to banish negative influences and lingering unpleasant energies.  


Those that are feeling overwhelmed by the exhausting amount of current chaos, I highly recommend the Tiger's Eye Spiritual Protection Barrier Ritual. I would recommend this be performed on the Witch's New Moon of May 24th-25th


We are all in this together, even if we must still be apart. The next few months will continue to be difficult. But there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel. That light is the Winter Solstice of 2020. I know that right now it seems like it's lightyears away, but I promise, things will improve. Brighter days are ahead, and the best is yet to come.


While I am not currently taking new clients for readings, Witchcraft bootcamps, or astrological services, my team and I are here to help you in any way we can. If you would like some guidance about what rituals to do and when, especially given the current astrological climate, please feel welcome to contact us directly. We are happy to offer private (and free!) one-on-one ritual advice. 


Wishing you good health and inner peace. 


Love & Magick,

Dacha Avelin
