Retrograde Stepping 2020 Style

Taking the time to have ordered aware thoughts.

As the end of 2020 has a couple of retrogrades happening here are some good ideas to realize the opportunity to review what you have been working on with projects and goals, utilising time to ask: Is there new data? Does any tweaking need to happen? Is your goal the same? Where am I including time to restore myself?

As you slow down into the retrogrades, feelings can include fatigue, indifference, cravings, irritability and lack of appetite. In support of addressing these feelings to maintain a positive emotional and mental perspective, remember to keep exercise scheduled regularly, to drink water, to stretch out of long held postures; for example sitting at your desk working on the computer, opening up the front of the body if you drive a vehicle for a living, or laying on the floor with hips even and placing legs up and over the couch to invert, if you work on your feet. All of these are simple additions into your day beginning or end that help to reset the body, keep the mind open and the heart light.

To compose energy on the go, breath exercises are great, portable and easy to adapt to available time. Key tip, a full round is one full deep breath in, a pause, a slow complete breath out, and another pause. Repeat a full cycle on its own if time is short and for a few full rounds if you have more available.

It is recommended within the last few months of 2020, not to push. Utilise rhythm to have some ease and flow to any aspect of tweaking, critical assessment of data and viewing goals. We really step into function over form in this section of the year. It’s got to work before we address how it looks.

In our pursuit of goals, from hitting targets to finding a new gig, gratitude frames real information, grounds us and serves in all aspects of a retrograde. As we bring together a calm, clear focus we are able to build the path ahead. Retrogrades help us to step forward with clarity, free of excess stagnant energy and with gratitude.

888 Activities that support a healthy you at any time in retrogrades:

  • Remove clutter.
  • Leave some open spaces in the room/office/reception/kitchen.
  • Add colour. Auspicious colours in 2020 are blue and green. Less of yellow and brown tones till February 2021.
  • Smudge.
  • Clear labels in storage areas. Keep it tidy.

As we always recommend at 888, eat seasonally and as fresh as you’re able. The better you eat, the clearer your body functions. Being in a position to properly code your food as fuel can reduce cravings, support proper rest and aids mental agility. Our expression from ourselves and in our spaces, creates a vitality that reassures and makes life worth living.

Safe passage.
