Jupiter Combust Sun, Saturn Stationary, Uranus Retrograde
Saturn ends its retrograde phase on Monday, July 21. Saturn has been "going backwards" in the zodiac since March 2. This week Saturn appears to hang motionless in the Heavens, @ 22 deg. Libra, as it prepares to return to normal "Direct" motion in the zodiac. When a planet is Stationary, it is considered to be very strong for effects. Saturn is the planet of Delay, Limitation, Structure, Established Order, and Suffering.
Uranus begins its retrograde phase on Monday, July 21, @ 22 deg Pisces. The planet of Sudden, Unexpected Events, has been near stationary all this past week, and will appear to be motionless this week as well. The significations of Uranus are therefore strong. The shoot-down of the Malaysian Airliner over Ukraine is one obvious example of this energy pattern.
