We’ve all heard of Mercury Retrograde. But do you know that other planets can go on retrograde too? In May 2020, three planets will do so: Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter.

Saturn Retrograde (10 May to 28 September) poses issues with completing duties and responsibilities, lack of discipline or confidence and conflicts with authoritative or father figures.

Venus Retrograde (13 May 13 to 25 June) inspires changes in romantic relationships, management of own finances and resources and creative block.

Jupiter Retrograde (14 May to 12 September) moves one to reflect and contemplate a belief system, life philosophy, personal visions, goals, ideals, and growth.

I can already imagine people running around, pulling their hair, and dramatically shouting "The world is gonna END!” Let me assure you that the purpose of Astrology and Divination is to PREPARE and not to SCARE. I often encourage clients to seek spiritual awareness because enlightenment is when one is able to stay calm in the middle of a storm. As an astrologer for many years, I’m always chill despite what is happening in the world as I am a big believer of attracting what you think — so have happy, positive thoughts! Here's what's in store for you this month, despite the retrogrades.

Saturn, Jupiter and Venus retrogrades are in store.So many retrogrades, so little time.

Gifts of flowers, love letters and poems read aloud are all in your future. Marriage proposals, weddings, and past-life connections are possible. Someone new who is romantic, dreamy, and emotional may enter your life. This person could be artistically inclined and is an idealist about love.

You have been very productive during the worldwide lockdown and self-isolation. Physically, you may have spent time alone but you have been using these moments of solitude to focus on love, and in ways which you might give to those around you, such as emotional support and spiritual guidance. Shine your light of hope for others to follow.

Pisces ♓

February 19 to March 20

You are reviewing and contemplating many aspects of your life after many accomplishments — be proud of yourself! Thinking of the past and present allows you to figure out and have a clearer idea of your next steps. Be you and do you. Don’t follow traditional ideas just because everyone is telling you to.
