Planetary Influences for Summer 2018
Summer is in full swing and the energies flowing around are a fine mixture of festive and frustrated. Have you been feeling like you are emotionally and mentally in a constant rip current? Well, my friend, breathe deeply and let's explore exactly whats been going on in our solar system.
The planets in our direct solar system give off divine energies of all natures that we as humans absorb without even knowing it. So, in the times that you feel more on edge about everything or more hopeful and inspired the planets have their influence.
2018 Summer is a powerful time of retrograde there are a few planets that are in retrograde and are causing a “Shadow” effect. A “Shadow” effect is the reverse or retrograde effects the planet is giving off. For example, the planet Mercury rules communications so the “shadow” effect would be experiencing strained and frustrated communications in your work relationships, personal relationships and even with yourself.
Just because the planet is in retrograde does not mean you have no choice in the matter. Retrograde planets offer us a lot of growth as well. Although they seem to be working against us that is not the case. Take this time to listen to yourself, and others. Give extra time and attentiveness to reaching out to your co-workers and family.
2018 Mercury Retrograde
So starting off with Mercury, which will be in retrograde from July 26, 2018-August 19, 2018. Find patience in communicating with others, you will be happy you did. The awkwardness that mercury brings with its shadow effect is present but you can surpass it with awareness. Also, try and stay away from large commitments that may stress any relationships until August.

Be happy that it is summer time and enjoy the abundance you have existing all around you.
2018 Saturn Retrograde

2018 Neptune Retrograde
Neptune is in retrograde from June 18th, 2018 till November 24th, 2018. Neptune is the planet of dreams so when in retrograde this planet rules emotions and spirituality. In the shadow time of Neptune, it is good to dive within yourself and nurture your revelations and emotions. This may cause you to detach from the outside world and responsibilities. Be patient with yourself and your spiritual growth because it will be worth it, in the end.
2018 Pluto Retrograde
Pluto is in retrograde from April 2018 to September 30th, 2018. Even though scientifically speaking Pluto is a “dwarf” planet it is still in our solar system and we still absorb the energies it gives off. With this being said, Pluto in retrograde is pulling us to make more decisions through power and control, pushing ourselves towards our fullest potential. Take on challenges and learn from the experience.
This Summer is going to be an emotionally hectic ride but it is nothing you can not face. Just always remember to keep your head up and your breaths deep.
