Uranus retrograde When retrograde, Uranus seems to amplify shocks, because we can’t see what’s bubbling under the surface until it erupts. When retrograde, a planet actually seems to retrace its steps and for Uranus, this means the past several months. It will be retrograde until December 21, so you may experience a sudden move, revelation or upset during this time, especially if you’ve planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Keep in mind that Uranus is known as the Awakener. Whatever happens, face it with eyes and heart wide open for the best results.

Neptune retrograde really ramps up its power in Pisces. Since its onset through this sign in early 2012, we have been invited to deepen into spiritual coexistence with our Blue Planet. Our Earth is changing, and our ability to adapt and accommodate has everything to do with our longterm survival as a species. Meditation and personal self-awareness is not a selfish act, but one that affects everyone. When retrograde, Neptune is like an undertow, continually pulling us back into the need for reflection and reconnection with Source.

Some people say that Neptune Retrograde makes things clearer as the ability to escape lessens; others say that Neptune Direct is when options clarify as we move forward with dreams and face what haunts us. This is certain, Neptune dissolves issues symbolized by any point it touches in your horoscope and as a result, may cause confusion, an epiphany or loss. It may have to do with whether you were born with it retrograde or direct and how heavily Neptune influences your personal horoscope. The best method to unearth your relationship with the mystical planet is to note what is going on with you when Neptune is either direct or retrograde; each of us reacts personally to the energies at hand. Neptune goes direct on November 16.

Moon VOC (void of course) Defined:
We still experience long VOC (void-of-course) days. This is when the moon no longer makes any geometric aspect to another planet until she leaves that sign.
Since the moon has to do with emotions/moods, when she’s VOC, people don’t have an emotional attachment to the outcome of a project or purchase. That’s why it is not recommended to sign a contract, buy anything of value, schedule an important meeting or start a new project during the VOC.
HOWEVER, if the VOC moon touches a significant point in your PERSONAL horoscope, this could be a game changer. This is a karmic moment, which means you could be in a position to make a decision or start something that has a destined purpose. This is why it does matter to have dates checked by a professional if something important is at stake, unless you can make this calculation yourself.
Prolonged VOCs occur when all the outer planets are in low degrees of a sign. There is always a positive way to use the VOC energy but you can’t force it. Avoid shopping unless you know what you’re going to purchase ahead of time- however, it is common to find it out of stock.
