Planetary retrogrades are gone, so get ready to manifest your dreams

Sorry I got this up

Sound the alarm! Bust out your Google cals! Dust off your vision board!

You will now be entering the gate to clear astrological skies! Beginning Feb. 3, 2022, at 5:13 p.m. (EST), all planets in our solar system will be awake — or direct! This is major for a few different reasons.

From tonight through April 29, 2022, at 8:38 a.m. (EST), you’ll have an easier time making things happen — both personally and professionally. That’s nearly three months! Let’s take a peek into what that can mean for you.

What’s a retrograde?

If you’ve followed the basics of astrology, you’ve heard of the dreaded term “retrograde.” Mercury retrogrades are the most common, as they happen several times a year. However, contrary to popular belief, a retrograde does not mean it’s the end of the world or that you have an excuse to be crazy, chaotic or a downright trash human being.

Planetary retrogrades are optical illusions from our viewpoint on Earth, but they do have very real effects on our daily lives. Whichever principles the planet rules will end up being reviewed and reassessed; we also tend to see delays and stagnation around those themes. Situations and people from the past often pop back up during retrogrades, too. Oh, and you can actually use retrogrades for good!

Let’s get moving!

When retrogrades are taking place, we inevitably have a slower pace to life. However, as soon as Feb. 3 hits, we’ll be back on track and gaining speed! Mercury, the planet of communication and the mind, will quickly pick up the pace — and that means our lives will pick up the pace, too. Venus, the planet of relationships, will also have recently grabbed an espresso and jolted back to life. This means all of the delays, stagnation and hiccups you’ve experienced since early December will start to fade from view.

Make that money

Use the time ahead to focus on your finances, business plans and career goals. You’ll be able to pivot directions and be more confident in a path forward. All financial decisions, investments and purchases will be made on firmer ground — but, as always, be sure to consult a financial consultant or accountant about your choices if you do not previously have experience making them.

Open your heart to love

With Venus and Mars direct within the sky, this means we will see our relationships move forward once again. If you’ve been hoping for that ex to return, sorry: That ship has likely sailed and ..

Here’s When Every Planet Is Retrograde in 2022

Unless you live under a hunk of fallen meteorite, you’ve probably heard about Mercury retrograde, the quarterly mayhem that occurs when the messenger planet passes the Earth, appearing from our vantage point to go backward. For three weeks, we can blame every Internet outage, petty fight and canceled brunch plan on a spinning rock 48 million miles away.

But did you know? Every single planet goes retrograde at some point. With the exception of Venus and Mars, the planets all have retrograde cycles every year.

Grab your calendar: We took the liberty of mapping out all the 2022 retrogrades for you so you can use these planetary power outages as transformational cycles.

What is a retrograde?

A planet could be retrograde—meaning that from the vantage point of Earth, it appears to be spinning backward. What’s really happening? Well, the Earth is completing its orbit around the Sun faster than other planets outside its orbit. Periodically, it will outpace them—and that’s when retrograde mayhem breaks loose.

Much like a speeding car or train passing a slower one, the planet that’s being passed will appear to stop and move backward—which is the apparent retrograde period.

Then, once the Earth completely passes this planet in its orbit, the motion appears normal again, and the planet is said to be “direct” or “prograde” (to use the snappy scientific term). Chances are, you’ve been in a vehicle that felt like it was moving in reverse when it was passed, so you know the feeling!

What about the “shadow” period?

It ain’t over ’til it’s over! Each retrograde cycle has a “shadow period”—the awkward adjustment of the retrograde planet from apparent backward to …
