This New Moon Happens With Six Planets in Retrograde

Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury are currently retrograde; they are traveling backward in their orbit. With all these planets backspinning, we have an opportunity to slow down and reflect on what we truly want out of our lives. 

With Mercury in retrograde, we might feel like things are not progressing fast enough, but trust once the planet goes direct on October 18, all will be well.

It's Time to Get (Really) Real With Yourself

What do you "really" want out of life? Out of your current relationships? Are you working on yourself and finding your center? Aim for finding harmony as you identify key areas of your life that might need work. These include communication, flexibility, and how fair you are with yourself and others.

Engage in Productive Activities 

Make a list of things you must or want to get done and start ticking them off one by one. Once you find yourself fulfilling small tasks, you'll see a boost not only in your self-esteem but your overall mood. Engaging in artistic activities such as painting, journaling, or playing music will help liven you up.
