Navigation Through Planetary Influences

Navigation Through Planetary Influences

There’s no disputing the effect the moon has on the tides, thus, it’s logical to assume that the moon also has an effect on people (given the fact that over 50% of the human body is made up of water).  So perhaps the planets in our solar system have equal effects.

The month of August (as was July) is plagued with retrogrades and eclipses. Many theories suggest that the planetary conditions cause much chaos and aggression in people who are unaware of the cosmic pull and of themselves.

Mercury remains retrograde until August 18th.

August 11: solar eclipse in Leo plus Uranus will be retrograde.

July 26th to August 12th: the annual planetary alignment, known as the “Lion’s Gate Portal,” happens (when the sun is in the constellation of Leo). August 8th is when the energy is considered to be the strongest planetary influence of the year.

There’s much debate on whether planets in retrograde have real effects.
When a planet is in retrograde, it appears to be moving backwards. Even though the backward movement is just an illusion (the same way a car looks to be moving backwards when you pass it on the highway), it has been known throughout the ages to signal a period of delayed progress or disruption, specifically to the human psyche.

Fact or power of suggestion?
That’s for you to decide, but if you notice the effects, it does not matter what causes it...there’s still an effect.
Many people subscribe to the theory that the planets in retrograde do have energetic effects on the earth and all that it sustains, while others believe that any noticeable circumstances that happen around the times of planetary retrogrades are either a coincident or unconscious manifestations from the powers of suggestion. Personally, as an extremely sensitive person, I can tell you that I absolutely feel the intense energies of planetary conditions without having any knowledge of them.
To shield myself from social agendas and influence as much as possible, I feel, observe, and THEN check the facts for verification.

Protect yourself with awareness and understanding.
I don’t believe that there is a default protocol to deal with these occurrences because we are all so uniquely biologically and emotionally constructed, however, I can tell you what works for me. But to preserve your sanity and quality of life (regardless of the actual cause), there must be a protocol in place that makes sense to you when chaos of any source flares up (be it cosmic, collective or strictly personal).

Pay attention to the warning signs.
When the energy becomes intense, there are many physical and emotional reactions. Without awareness, these reactions can cause devastating consequences.
Here are some that I’ve noticed within myself and in others.
Vision problems
Body aches
Weakened immune system (increase of colds and illnesses)
Heightened sensitivity to the Sun
Heightened sensitivity to sounds
Unexplainable anxiety
Extreme irritability

So what should you do when things get intense?
First, it is important to understand that when circumstances and emotions become intense, it is life’s way of telling you to slow down and introspect.

So here is my personal protocol.

1. Slow down.
This is the time to slow your pace. Do everything slower, which will help you avoid mistakes from the confusion and allow you to gain awareness.

2. Exercise awareness.
Awareness is key in attaining accurate insight and understanding. The times of intensity are at high risk for making wrong assumptions, bad decisions and regretful reactions. Remind yourself that “things may not what they seem to be” when the emotions get roused.

4. Clean house.
For me, it’s time to clean house (literally and figuratively). I find that getting my house and thoughts in order prevents me from being sucked into the whirlwind of energetic chaos.

5. Self care.
Now is the time to go for that massage you’ve been wanting to get. Go to the gym, but don’t overdo it. Study your spiritual path, whatever that may be. Go for a walk in the woods and find solace. Meditate, eat healthy, relax. Avoid the news and anything stressful.

6. Avoid all mind altering drugs and alcohol.
I can’t stress this one enough. This is a very touchy subject, but it is crucial to remain lucid and clear. The risk for self medication, delusion, relapses and overdoses is at it’s highest during such intense times, and the damaging effects of drugs and alcohol are also at their highest. To seek refuge from mind-altering substances at this time will trigger ALL negative responses from the energies. This is why it’s so important to establish a protocol that will help you through these times.

Consider the possibility that perhaps the Universe is speaking through evidential occurrences. With the proper conduct and response, this too shall pass bringing us to expanded views of spiritual growth and wisdom.
