Earth Keeper Astrology ~ The Fires of Purification, 6 Planets Retrograde in July
The Fires of Purification
Written By James Tyberonn
Astronomical gravity & astrological influences are absolutely real, and you will feel their results, whether or not you believe in astrology. For those of you that do accept the veracity of such patterns, we are preaching to the choir. But keep in mind that human will is greater than any astrological force. And by knowing what astro-weather is in the forecast, it is easier to avoid the pitfalls.
Mars ended its retrograde movement just over one week ago on June 29th, however we are still in the ‘shadow’ of the potent Mars retrograde, and will remain in the vibratory field of potential of over-reactions in this intense amalgam for another fortnight.
There are still 6 planets in retrograde in July, with Uranus going into back flow in late July. However, 2 of the July retros are relatively minor influences, and one of the major planetary retros, Neptune, has quite an upside in provision of clarity.

On the Global Scale
The macro, global impact story is the movement of Uranus. Not simply it’s retrograde, but its potent conjunctions during this back flow. These will have high potential of further energizing the rebellion against bureaucracy & the monetary & governing inequalities and injustices of the old-guard entitled establishment. But in this phase over-reaction can easily occur. Certain protests are absolutely justified, others that occur in violent reaction are not.
We add an excerpt from the Metatron Channel on Crucible Astrology & Requite Resolution:
Quote: “The ongoing turmoil on the planet clearly signals to humanity that the complex, deeply embedded issues of conflict, whether of religious, territorial basis or concerning social equity and inequity, must be resolved.
These have surfaced many times before without resolution. However in the energy of the New Earth, such issues will not just go away. In the energy of your ‘present’ linear time, such conflicts will absolutely percolate to the surface and remain there until they are confronted and justly settled. Many of these are dramatically emotionalized due to past repression, but the core issues must surface and must be faced. When such challenges arise, another round of what may be termed ‘ resolution therapy’ begins in temporal rhythmic patterns…albeit in this case, a continual rhythm.
Masters, conflicts & issues of human equality cannot be treated with a quick-fix medicine or a safety-valve treatment of letting off ‘steam’. Equality and justice must become ideals that are actualized in the New Planet Earth. And these issues will continue to be raised on a global scale.” Unquote – Excerpted from ‘2038 The Next Quantum Leap’ written & channeled via James Tyberonn
Several respected astrologists liken what is occurring thru 2017 to the acceleration of anti-establishment movements such as those of the second half of the 1960’s. And of course there is ever the dichotomy, the ‘duality double-edge’ of such dynamism, between the peaceful protesting for reformation and the violent side of aggressive revolution so often distorted in polarity into destructive chaos. We are in fact seeing both, and this has the potential to be exacerbated over the next months.
** Astrologist Jim Shawvan writes:Quote:”All the way to 2017 and beyond, Uranus (mental change) squares Pluto (deep emotional change) within a 7-degree orb. Some astrologers, perhaps including Richard Tarnas, might say that this aspect was already in effect before March of 2011 — in effect, allowing an orb of more than seven degrees. Certainly the (Middle East) & Arab rebellions suggest this possibility, although they might also be blamed on Mars and the Sun conjoining Neptune around that time. The last time Uranus and Pluto made a major hard aspect was in the 1960’s, when they were conjunct (within 7 degrees) from 1963 to 1968. These two slow planets have recently made seven exact squares, the first in June of 2012 and the last in March of 2015. We’re in for something like a rerun of the ’60’s throughout this entire period. Hang on to your hats.” ** Unquote …
All of this actually began its birthing in 2012 in the pooling of ‘crucible astrology’, the requisite surfacing of all ‘unresolved energies’, justified or not. In any phase of rebellion there is the potential emergence of the darkside to come in as opportunistic wolves in sheep’s clothing, distorting any cause for its own means.
There may be heightened potentials for attempted political assassinations on the scale of those occurring in the 60’s during this phase in the 2nd half of 2016 leading into 2017. It may be surmised that the ongoing isolationist movements, the protestation leanings of the ongoing American election & the British exit from the European Union, are part of the pattern. And on the extreme face, the continued violence and the extreme violence of terrorist activities are part of the ongoing crucible cycle, and are to no small degree exacerbated by the incredible retro patterns of 2016.
On the Micro Level
Now it is important to note that while the planetary vibrational composite of the astronomical-astrological fusion occurring has a truly major global impact, all of you will also need to deal with these frequencies on an individual level in line with their influences in your day to day experiences.
On the micro plane, as Uranus, joins 5 other planets & moves into retrograde, it is essential to maintain your balance. On the level of the individual, keep in mind that changes in your thinking and perspectives can seemingly ‘take over’ during this phase. While this Uranus retrogrades can help to free one of confining scenarios, they can also lead to impetuous over reactions in a rebellious burst of un-tethered emotional release, not unlike a Mars retrograde. Uranus retros are something of an emotional ‘release valve’. But in this 2016 composite, the release will be influenced in its manner & accuracy to no small degree by the other retrogrades & planetary alignments. And it is essential to be reminded that the ‘Crucible’ astro-percolation is playing a key role.
Over the next few months, certain ‘bottled-up’ feelings & frustrations can (and will) burst out of the blue in this timing with an incredible fortitude of tone. And note, these emotions are not necessarily based in logic, nor are they necessarily accurate in this astro-mixture. Release of pent up frustrational feelings are often skewed. So in Uranus retro, think before you act … for these sudden reactions, are often uncontrolled & initially unconsidered … such reactions may be favorable or quite damaging. Very often the liberating sense during Uranian retros is one of being ‘Fed-up & I’m not going to take it anymore’. So think twice before allowing the impulse to overtake you. Don’t tell your authoritarian boss to shove it, if you don’t have another job lined up.
Do take time to read the general trends of the 6 planetary retrogrades that we have listed below. There is quite a mixture and the 3 major planets plus Pluto will in this phase have a stronger influence than the 2 asteroid-planetesque ( Pallas, Chron) retros listed.
Be Cautious But Do Not Panic
As in all astro gravities, human will is stronger than any planetary influence. Yes, we are in an intense phase of crucible astrology, but it is not happening haphazardly, it is not happening by coincidence nor mere chance. In the words of Edgar Cayce, we are ‘facing ourselves’, meeting what has been sewn, in order to resolve that which requires resolution.
Take Action – Co-Create
Metatron has emphasized that all unresolved energy is surfacing, and must be faced in order to ‘lance the boil’. And while ‘Pandora’s Box’ is seemingly opened for this cleansing ‘Crucible’ phase, nothing occurs on the planet of duality, in the realm of free-will that is without purpose. Humanity are on the cusp of a Golden Age, but it cannot occur until mankind consciously co-create it.
According to visionary teacher & author John Van Auken of the Edgar Cayce Foundation, one of the events that must take place before the Golden Age is ushered in, is the harmony of the ‘Family of Abraham’. John Van Auken suggests that reformations will occur which will allow for a path toward the requisite harmony between Christians, Judaism & Islam. Of course it will take time. But even the hard path of hatred & war eventually leads to the knowledge that hate itself is the enemy.
Uranus Retrograde: Uranus is retrograde 29 July thru 29 December 2016.Uranus is the planet of liberation, sudden change and disruption of pattern. During this phase in 2016, one may particularly feel like a stranger to ones ‘normal’ self. You may at times feel isolated, a bit separated and lost from all that you’ve known and separated from your standard identity. You may in this amalgam of Neptune & Saturn retrograde lose your sense of well-being, and feel vulnerable. You may question your virtue. The sense of financial and job insecurity can be skewed, but this particular insecurity will be felt primarily during the time of the partner retro of Saturn, and Saturn ends its retrograde in mid-August. When Uranus flows retrograde, it will reawaken freedom urges causing the individual to suddenly rebel against any ruts or confinement in the life. I feel that it is better to process what needs to change while Uranus is retrograde and actualize the change when it turns direct. The retrograde simply makes you aware but it is generally not wise to impulsively act Recommended Gemstone for Saturn Retrograde – Lapis Pendant & Amethyst Ring
Saturn Retrograde: The 2016 Saturn retro occurs from March 16th thru August 13th. Saturn rules life purpose. Karma, structure, order and the way in which we conduct our affairs are all ruled by the ringed planet. During the 10 weeks of Saturn’s 2016 retrograde flow, expect the unexpected. Unsettling surprises, frustrations and slow-downs may occur on a weekly basis. Effective time management even for the most organized people may seem impossible. Projects that seemed online may get sidetracked by the pop-up of unforeseen tasks and unresolved issues of the past. In this phase you may fall into self-doubt, and feel you are off track. But this time can be wisely use to evaluate what is serving your highest life purpose, and what is not, by revealing your inner thoughts, defensive reactions, psychological structures and limiting parameters. Recommended Gemstone for Saturn Retrograde – Lapis Pendant & Amethyst Ring
Neptune Retrograde: Neptune goes retro on June 13 and stay in back-flow until the 19th of November. Neptune rules the dream world, imagination & fantasy, & is influential in psychic realms. The planet of dreams, Neptune is considered an influence of ‘illusion’. So when Neptune moves in retro, dreams, intuition & psychic input can actually be very clear … devoid of illusion & be quite lucid. You may be able to pick up the concealed actions & motives of others as well as gain extremely rare insights. The hidden can be suddenly revealed in Neptune retro. The cautionary side to Neptune retro is that the imagination works overtime and impressions, ideas and images roll in at high speed, non-stop, thru the ‘secondary mind level’, & the overload can lead to insomnia & mental exhaustion if not well filtered. So do not assume that every impression received is the absolute truth or a certainty of reality. What one gleans will also be effected in this timing by the situ of the other planets, and with Uranus, Pluto and Saturn in retro, perceptions may be muddled by their retro influence. Recommended Gemstones for Neptune Retro – Lapis Lazuli & Azurite (only wear azurite for meditation do not wear azurite 24/7, wear the lapis lazuli constantly.)
Pluto Retrograde: Pluto retrograde lasts from April 18 to September 26, 2016. The transitory retrogrades of the outer 3 planets are often far less intensely felt than the retros of the inner planets, Mercury thru Jupiter. But in this phase of 2016 with 6 planets in retro, Pluto will be felt far more in this combined energy amalgam. This year’s Pluto retrograde will absolutely tug at you, in a more overt and rather unforgiving crucible, in deep exploration of your inner truth. You may have episodes of low self-esteem in Pluto retrograde, a tendency to concentrate on guilt and mistakes you have made in the past. This can be excruciating, but can be optimally managed by purging what does not serve you. Pluto often triggers an emotional shift, and in retrograde this can tend to provide inaccurate focus on mistakes of the past, and one should keep this in consideration and avoid falling into a phase of unjustified guilt and self-persecution. However, this is none-the-less, an important timing for prioritizing and re considering life purpose and realigning appropriately to your divine self. Recommended Gemstones for Pluto Retro – Lapis Lazuli & Azurite (only wear azurite for meditation do not wear azurite 24/7, wear the lapis lazuli constantly.)
Chiron Retrograde: Chiron, like Juno is a planet-esque asteroid, but of significant gravity consideration. Chiron is retro grade for about 5 months from 27 June thru 19 December. In Chiron retrogrades deceptions & hurts come to light. It is a time in which consideration of mis-actions are faced and dealt with, whether these are misdeed or wrong actions you have committed, or injustices dealt to you from others. In this time pain surfaces & becomes a great teacher. Courage is required to face the problem, and come to terms with it. If a relationship has ended, Chiron retrograde is the time to understand, release and move forward. This is a time for you to review your own failings, pay the piper and take corrective action. But avoid spiraling into depression… be careful not to focally brood in sorrow, guilt or anger in this timing, rather review actions, face them and move forward all the wiser. Review & release! Recommended Gemstones for Chiron Retro: Ruby, Garnet, Pink Tourmaline & Rose Quartz.
Pallas Retrograde: Pallas (Athena) was the second asteroid discovered & became astronomically & astrologically recognized less than 150 years ago. Named after Jupiter’s daughter, Pallas Athena is intelligent, intellectual, creative, innovative, cunning, politically savvy, diplomatic, strategic and cerebral. Pallas Athena also governs the relationship between father and daughter, as well as patriarchal authority figures and their feminine underlings. Better stated, the Pallas governs relationship between power-strength and Caring- nurturing. In retrograde Pallas, can mal-affect all of the above. In 2016 Pallas is retrograde from the June Solstice thru mid-October. This retro in amalgamated frequency with the combined retros of Uranus, Pluto and Chiron will add to the ‘rebellious’ aspect ongoing, and people may find themselves out of sorts with authority figures as well as in a phase of unclear thinking, and overly blunt. One’s normal tact and diplomacy can be off-track, and a tendency to fight rather than think may occur. Recommended Gemstones for Pallas Retro: Turquoise, Chrysocolla & Rose Quartz
The actions to take & avoid during this phase in July 2017 are quite similar to those shared in June, the primary difference is the forward movement of Mars and the retro movement of Uranus.
A brief bullet point of Do’s and Don’ts in this period:
Do NOT : Fall into Anxiety, Engage conflicts, Fall Into Apathy, Feel Disempowered, Over React, Over Criticize, Do NOT Focus on Guilt, Fear or Anger
Do: Focus on Positive Thoughts & Visualize Positive Outcomes, Wear an Azurite & Lapis Lazuli as primary pendants & amethyst as primary ring. Exercise regularly to maintain balance , and meditate.
In addition to avoiding over-reactions, especially to spiritual seekers, to sensitive & empathic thinkers, this is a time to avoid falling into self-persecution. A skewed sense of guilt, can surface in these combined retrogrades. While self-review and re-calibration is always important, be aware that this is not an optimal phase for accuracy in self- review. This is not necessarily the appropriate time to overly focus on aspects of your perceived short-comings, doing so can lead to inaccurate conclusions & lead to depression.
Excerpt from 2038 – Crucible Astrology: Quote: “That termed the shadow, the darkside is in a temporal free-flow for a peculiar period of frequencial time to bring to the surface repression and frustrations, whether justified or not, to be confronted, viewed and dealt with in the crucible of human experience and manifest reality. That which was hidden or repressed is being percolated to the top. Past transgressions and unresolved conflicts that may have been hidden will surface in this time for facing and responsibly clearing.
It is a time of misunderstanding, of overreaction and illusion. It is an energy underscored by extremes in expression of repression, a backlash of frustrations that may be revealed in a squeeze of untoward, even inappropriate venting in releasing that which was in ‘shadow’.
In this phase, those prone to delusion, to occasional grandiose misconceptions or mirage of aggrandized fantasy will find that this drossy veil will be opened wide into false dream worlds, and these temporarily lost dreamers may well bite the hand that attempts to wake them. Reality checks offered from even the best intent may result in a confusing, unexpected counterpunch or rejection. It is a time in which even the pure of heart may reject seemingly good willed advice, much less intervention. It is a phase in which any figure of authority, right or wrong, may be seen as interfering. It is a time of misunderstanding, of overreaction and illusion. It is an energy underscored by extremes in expression of repression, a backlash of frustrations that may be revealed in a squeeze of untoward, even inappropriate venting in releasing that which was in ‘shadow’.
A rebellious attitude is given leeway, even among those not normally fractious, and may influence one to take steps in this rather cloudy frequencial phase that would not have otherwise seemed logical. So keep in mind this unusual energy can influence all. The inner ‘coyote’ is released. The teacher has left the room, and the students are on their own, mischief applies as the rules are not as enforceable in this misty frequency. Many of you will act in ways that are unexpected and surprisingly unusual, well outside your normal pattern, as constraints are lifted in this rather chaotic and influential gravity. Those factions and individuals that are tied to negative aspects of revenge or any negative tainting may be prone to act in extreme measures during this phase.
All planetary retrogrades, potent conjuncts as well as eclipses, equinoxes & solstices comes into play in this juncture of ‘Crucible release’ of unresolved energy. Inequalities, injustices, all perceived concepts of not being recognized, of ideas being excluded, rejected, of being passed over or repudiated in any manner, will surface. This applies in macro to ideologies, religions, countries or groups that feel their ‘power’ is not realized or has been diminished. Suppressed angers will find expression.
Religions that allow for violence or dogmatically condone violent aggression fall into this category. Groups and individuals that feel repressed will find a venting opportunity. Rages can be at an extreme among zealots. We would say to you that travel to strife torn regions of the world over the next 2-3 years will carry a much greater risk within this timing, therefore discernment and prudence is required. Pandora’s Box will remain open for several years to come. .
Now, we again tell you that human will is stronger than an astrological force, and that violence & fear are not the answer. The astrological forces that are bubbling angers, fears & unresolved energies to the surface are very real, and over reaction can result it negative action. So we tell you that patience & prudence are the wise path….and that consciously choosing both timing & course of action should be weighed in all endeavors.
Masters, again, nothing is occurring that does not have purpose. We tell you there are extraordinary windows of opportunity for focal creation in this phase of your New Earth. Despite the chaos, the intensity and frequency allows for coding, for co- creation within the crucible energies. “Unquote: Metatron via Tyberonn – 2038 – Chapter – Crucible Astrology & Requisite Resolution
Make a concerted effort to think positive, exercise and meditate! Things will look brighter the sooner you apply positive focus! As Edgar Cayce stated, human will is stronger than any astrological force. By being aware of astrological gravities it is easier to understand the surface tendencies related to them, and thus circumnavigate around and beyond them. And be aware that retrogrades (and all astrological alignments) have a positive as well as concerning aspect.
There is an upside to these energies. And that is essential to comprehend. The ability to manifest ones reality is extremely high . The phase of the Solar Eclipse of Sept 1 , leading to the Equinox of Sept 21 is an extremely powerful time to co-create. The phase of November 14 thru the solstice of December is also an extraordinary powerful time for manifesting your reality and co-creating a better ‘Earth-Experience’., both on the micro and macro.
And to close, let me remind you once again to remember that nothing is happening that is not without divine purpose. This extraordinary phase, while relentless & exasperating on one level, can also be extraordinarily prolific in providing opportunities for resolution and refining the planet of duality. The Earth plane, the University of duality is an illusion, a highly purposed illusion that we have all chosen to experience together. We are here to learn responsible co-creation, and though it may seem hard to keep the faith, believe it or not, despite the seeming chaos, we are on track.
