JUPITER & SATURN RETROGRADES, 2021 | shout-out to all the old stories i'm releasing

Updated: Jun 26


shout-out to all the stories i’m navigating the release of right now for the ways in which they helped me to feel safe and to make sense of things in the past.


see below for context & reflections on the significance of these retrograde periods. and check out the specific focus of it all for your rising sign at the very end.


outer/slower planet retrogrades are not something i’ve previously tapped very deeply into, or put much thought into, but i keep receiving invitations to explore what these jupiter and saturn retrogrades are about this time around, so here we are.

a retrograde planet is bringing its function more deeply into your internal sphere. it’s quite literally reviewing the ground that has been covered. retracing its steps.

the big ass motley powerhouse pair of planets that is jupiter and saturn together has a massive role in how we make sense of the world. jupiter is our function of meaning making, our sense of purpose, our framework for beliefs. saturn is consensus reality, our orientation towards the tangible and practical aspects of what is.

with both of these planets retrograde, it’s a time for drawing the function of meaning making and sense of *wHaT eVeN is,* inward.

another way of thinking about - it is a time for evaluating the narratives that we’ve adopted in a collaborative process with the circumstances of our lives thus far. these narratives have been informing every perspective we have, every choice we make. they are constructed on a foundation made up of all of the pain and trauma and harm we’ve experienced AND all of the affirmation, confirmation, and clarity that at one point felt like the truth. felt real.

these narratives are not bad. they are narratives. they are perspectives. they were constructed to help you make sense of the world. to help you grasp a reality that gave you a ground to stand (or sit or lie down or jump or run) on.

and.

these narratives are changeable shiftable releasable.

you don’t have to hold onto your sense of reality, your meaning structure, just because it once felt true. just because it is what has been passed down to you. just because it made you feel safe. just because it’s the one that seems to makes sense to the people around you.

you also don’t have to peel it all away all at once. you don’t have to resent it. you don’t have to condemn it.

you can witness it. you can learn about it. you can be in communion with it. you can co-create with it. you can let it evolve. you can let it go in only the ways and only the time that feels both grounding and expansive for you.
