Three social planets will become retrograde in April

April 2019 is quite replete with interesting and rare astrological events. Three planets at once – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto (which is technically not a social planet in a general sense, but is very closely related to social processes in society) – will turn around or are already moving in the opposite direction.

Jupiter becomes retrograde from April 10 until August 11. Saturn will turn around on April 29t and will be retrograde until September 18. Pluto will become retrograde a little earlier than Saturn, on April 24, and will become direct later, on October 8.

The retrograde movement of the planets Jupiter, Saturn and Jupiter, unlike of the personal planets Mercury, Venus and Mars, does not affect our consciousness, thinking, feelings or activity, but it affects our activities in society, business ventures, interaction with the state, our personal development and success.

Jupiter‘s retrograde movement will decrease external expansion. Career growth, business development, such as, for example, opening new branches, will be problematic. It is better to devote this time to internal business development, analyzing and correcting internal process flaws, consolidating and taking stock of achieved progress. With regards to personal development, there will also be a reinterpretation of personal achievements and deep internal self-analysis. Priorities might shift.

Saturn is one of the most mysterious planets: it is a border guard planet that protects our consciousness from external influences, just like an eggshell protects the white and the yolk from the external environment. At the same time, Saturn does not allow us to spread out, keeps us in shape, helps us to maintain order and self-discipline, be punctual and organized. Saturn is a planet related to the results of our activities: to some extent, here we take a test and are then evaluated based on the results, which are the direct consequence of our choices, activities and deeds.

That is why, retrograde Saturn is a good time for correcting our mistakes, for paying back our debts, for fulfilling obligations, which for some reason were put off and not done on time, because Saturn-Chronos is also the sovereign of time. During this period, it is best not to borrow money, launch new large-scale business endeavors related to the “structure” and form. It is better to start with small steps, moving gradually towards the final goal.

Retrograde Pluto can increase tension in society, because it controls the collective processes. If disagreements and contradictions have been brewing in a team for a while, if there has been dissatisfaction with what is happening, then these problems can lead to a tipping point when the situation will mature and explode, or even become uncontrollable.
