When a planet goes retrograde think of any word that has a "re" in front of it: re-do, re-think (re-think your look), retreat (retreat to your inner space). This is a time to consider what things in our lives may be up for revision and review, or even what we may need to redo. In general, it is a good time to slow the busy pace of our lives.
This year one of the most viewed award shows in the world is taking place during the retrograde of Mercury (planet of communications) and Saturn (ruler of structure). It will be interesting to see how astrological charts will play out with the winners.
This Oscar in particular is an extremely auspicious one with all the Neptunian influences. Neptune rules dreams, illusions, and delusions. As we all know, watching movies transports our consciousness into an altered state. All of the movies nominated this year possessed this mesmerizing effect.
The Oscars, an event that is on everybody's lips and radar, has become a beacon of light in our vernacular. Everyone is consumed with who's going to win, what they're going to wear and how all their hard work is going to pay off.
