We have a rather rare phenomenon happening right now. Four planets are on retrograde at the same time: Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. The retrograde is actually an illusion created by the orbit of our Earth. The planets are not really going backwards, they just appear they are. But things will feel a bit peculiar until they catch up to Earth again. We are in a retrograde station with Mercury until May 22nd affecting communication, travel, electronics and mechanical stuff. It's not a good time to buy a new car or sign a contract. Mars went retrograde on April 18th and goes direct on June 30th. People around you may be more aggressive, and you can experience karmic problems. Watch out for old anger and resentment that may start up again. With a retrograde Jupiter, your energy may be down, and money issues come up at the same time. The retrograde Jupiter causes us to re-evaluate our spiritual beliefs. When we have a retrograde Saturn, rules are not upheld and issues of abuse often surface. All in all, we have to look at ourselves inside and out and re-evaluate our lives. It's not a bad time. Rather, it is a good time to move forward and arrange your life again. I have been teaching both students and patients how to use the Magic Square to set their goals and address every domain in their world: career, relationships, family, money, spiritual, travel and influential people, projects, health and wellness, and success. The Magic Square http://rechargingqigong.com/magic-square-workshop.html has an alchemical formula to balance all these domains and build your power of manifestation. I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and Happiness. Dr. Wu Dhi P.S. Your power of manifestation will bring you all you want, all you need, and all that you desire. All you have to do is plug in and the results will come to you.
