All cycles create some movement that either awakens us or pushes us forward when we are stagnated in old patterns. Sometimes we don’t get what we want during certain cycles and we often assume it’s always negative. Yes granted, issues like computer glitches and delayed in traffic is truly an annoying feature often associated with retrogrades in planets like Mercury. The key is not to take it as a disaster but rather an opportunity to break away from your comfort zone. Many us get way too comfortable in predictable situations and only change when the cosmos kicks us down.
So rather than wait for divine intervention, why not look at the cycles as a chance to do something different. Below is a breakdown of some of the popular cycles and how you can use them to your advantage. Now, keep in mind this is a basic list, designed for the novice and not necessarily based on a complicated system.
Consider this list a cheat list for navigation through cosmic cycles:
• Mercury Retrograde
• Full Moon
• Waning Moon
• Dark (New) Moon
• Waxing Moon
These lists provide a general view on how the different cycles impact us individually. Not every person struggles during a Mercury Retrograde or gets overcharged during a full moon. Keep in mind these are concepts are based on tendencies and aspects that “influence” us but does not mean one should suspend taking actions.
Astrological aspects are like weather reports, which forecast temperature changes and upcoming storms. However even when the weather is cold or raining, things need to get done, so the forecast allows us to dress accordingly so we can continue to live our lives.
