Irreversible America, Understanding a 5 Personal Year Cycle

Probably most people would agree, the USA pretty much missed the memo on what it really meant to be Reinventing America 2018 to 2019, during its’ 4 Personal Year Cycle. What now becomes the more alarming ride as this soul homework was for the most part completely ignored, are what absolute irreversible changes promise to await during it’s 5 Personal Year that now unfold 04 July 2019 to 04 July 2020.

This piece will connect the numerological forecasting dots for America back to its’ natal astrological birth chart to show how the year ahead’s timing is everything scope is favored to unfold.

We easily calculate a Current Personal Year Cycle via numerology as such, always reducing any compound figure down to the singular digit.

7 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 23 | 2 + 3 = 5
Every person or entity, in this case of the country The United States, all circulate through 9 year cycles. Every 9 years, a new one begins. Each year has particular tasks and taking action things to do, that much like building blocks, work in connectivity to one another that continuously manifest in our human as well as collective experiences. For the USA, this particular 9 year span began back on 04 July 2015, as the country experienced a 1 Personal Year until 04 July 2016.

As far as the USA is concerned, being in a 5 Personal Year (here we look to the planet Mercury, who guides 5 energies requesting adaptability be honored and not resisted) promises complete permanent and irreversible changes to be experienced all throughout the year. Where the Personal Year planet in charge (in this case, Mercury) is first positioned in the birth chart upon the birthday, is then followed for it’s current transits until the next birthday cycle occurs for a precise timing is everything focus.

As it starts off 04 July 2019, Mercury is via current astrological transit, focused upon the wealth/scope of life/death rebirth for the nation, and will continue to evolve with a more than revealing story throughout the year to follow. 

While Mercury as well as all of his Retrograde passages will be undeniably touching upon all areas of the country’s life, where The Messenger (aka Mercury) is positioned at the very beginning of this 5 Personal Year is quintessential to understand for the year’s focus of permanent and irreversible change. 

The trickier part right away as America begins its’ 5 Personal Year, is that Mercury who is ultimately in charge of how all irreversible changes are to be seen, is equally stationed under the Approach to the year’s 2nd Retrograde spanning 07 to 31 July in this area of the life that is all about deep transformation, regeneration and the ability to become reborn. The sense of a holding pattern and glazing over is potentially high. 

Equally it involves the country’s use of other people’s money/resources/loans under the definition of wealth and beyond the financial picture itself, the ability to look at the larger picture with objectivity as this first Mercury Retrograde immediately engages. All surrounded in potential confusion and secrets, truths concealed.

All Mercury Retrograde cycles are especially critical for the nation as each one will come along 2019-2020 during this Mercury guided 5 Personal Year. What is equally important to note, as this first Retrograde passage engages positioned where it is in the nations chart, the country also starts the year off with plenty of secrets being concealed. As the station to turn Direct 31 July occurs, the country is also in a Mercury Return. 

The country’s natal Mercury (how it works with its’ communications/thinking/mentality across the board) is placed at 24 degrees Cancer, as the 31 July’s Mercury Retrograde turns Direct is at 23 degrees Cancer. So much that is disclosed and not openly discussed at this time, does promise to be revealed and better understood much later on within the 5 Personal Year itself. In other words, eyes and ears open America!

Carrying on, 31 October to 16 Novembers’ Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, begins to unfold in the nation’s area of lie which is even more secretive, hidden and totally associated with karmic justice as well as at best: healing the pains of the past. There are a many many things moving especially for the first part of 2019’s last Mercury Retrograde request through 08 November that will be dealt with which equally, will not exactly become public knowledge at first. 

The remainder of Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio 08 to 16 November seeks out reflection in the country’s area of future goals, hopes, dreams, wishes, place amongst peers, organizations and the actual friends the country has. All of these concepts are the preferred focus of where reflection should unfold the most. 

While a separate conversation from the Mercury focus of a 5 Personal Year, as 2019 concludes, there is a potent Solar Eclipse 26 December 2019 in the country’s approaches to life, emerging self, and overall “face to the world.” Equally Mercury is also positioned in this very same area of the life when the Eclipse kicks off, promising how America “appears to the world” will then begin a strong cycle that promises huge new beginnings to be seen, which absolutely are going to be more than surprising and full of interesting new ways they are in actuality seen to reinvent the nation as it is seen by the entire world. (And by this point, if resistance to change continues to occur, it will be all the more a harrowing road.)  

Step into play, 2020’s Awakening the Unexpected process overall that promises each and every heart upon the earth whether American or not, will equally undeniably experience. More to come on the shock factor year that 2020 involves, yet this will not be just America’s story to tell alone. 

By 30 January 2020, Mercury reaches the country’s thinking and mentality to engage another Retrograde cycle 16 February, and station to turn Direct 09 March upon the country’s natal Aquarius moon. Whatever is going on at that time, the emotional picture is exploding, and as all Mercury Retrograde’s are well known to do, there are all kinds of misinformation and human errors in the mix. 

Also to note is the 09 March Virgo Full Moon peaking in complete opposition in the country’s foreign affairs and ability to see the truth, at a purifying 19 degrees. Once again, whatever is going on, there is a truth being revealed while equally concealed and utter confusion surrounding it all with intense emotions like the country will not have experienced in a crisis fashion in quite some time.

2020’s 2nd Mercury Retrograde is still in progress as America’s 5 Personal Year officially concludes as it will have started upon 18 June. It is stationed then, upon the country’s natal Sun which will expose its’ identity as it relates to the world at large. There is a strong indication many legalities and legal matters will be moving at this time, or needing serious resolve. Yet, again, all things colored in illusion, confusion and human errors. 

The planetary baton is passed to Venus upon 04 July 2020 to enter the country’s 6 Personal Year, which then places her in charge of the immediate focus of how the nation is advised to proceed. Right under the Shadow of her recent Retrograde (13 May to 25 June) in the country’s area of service, health, lifestyle, habits, routines: all of which will be finding new footing to stand upon. It also will ask for further reflection and entangle the nation in more of those legal conversations prior to the Mercury Retrograde amplifying things by 18 June. 

A 6 Personal Year wishes to readjust understanding across the board concerning value of all things, relationships, luxuries, beauty, etc, in order to attain proper realignment and balance back into the life after such a stirring previous year of change. Undeniably as the year begins, America as a nation is in a grave and shocking understanding about what it really means to serve and take care of our health. Venus will conjunct America’s natal Uranus in this lifestyle, habits and routine area of the country’s life precisely as the 6 Personal Year begins, so it is utter disruption, disturbances, surprises and reinvention unexpectedly in motion across the board concerning all of the above concepts, yet as of now it appears more than plausible, the lifestyle of America somehow will not exactly exist as it has prior to that point arriving in time.

Back to the Mercury Retrograde that begins 18 June and spans until 12 July 2020. Before this one will station to turn Direct 12 July, the world experiences more than rebirthing Solar Eclipse upon the Summer Solstice, 21 June- and equally for the USA, this is also triggering new energy to emerge concerning how we relate to others, and all legal matters across the board. This eclipse closely conjuncts the country’s natal Venus- which will draw in a new value system for the country to align with. Oh, and let’s not fail to mention the two intense Lunar Eclipses. 05 June’s smacks the country’s natal Ascendant with more emotional upheaval for the nation to face head on, and the one to follow 05 July resets the entire earning power capacity, value system, securities and income potentials for the country. All connecting the dots back to 2014’s Grand Cardinal Cross alignment at 13 degrees, Regeneration – Change. Talk about an energetic permanent change show! 

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

By the time 12 July arrives, Mercury Retrograde is stationed to turn Direct upon the nation’s natal Jupiter, also in the nations’ area of legalities, relationships and all legal matters. Once again, whatever is not, or rather, has not been done in the most ultimate accountability, there will be plenty plenty of truth being revealed. Some will need to be filtered, yet, overall as 2020 overall promises the most unexpected ride to be part of the shock factor process, there is a very very interesting and leveling up time moving in America by Summer 2020. Equally as Mercury Rx turns around upon Jupiter, it will be larger than life to navigate and deal with, because Jupiter never, ever does anything quietly nor on any smaller scale.

May America be undeniably and ultimately prepared for leveraging change, irreversible energy and a lot of knowing that if its’ citizens did not properly prepare during the previous 4 years of soul work, there will be a lot of difficulty to work through. Whatever has been built upon an unstable foundation, crashes hard core in 2019-20. Whatever has been built in integrity, will only ultimately rise and blossom forward, especially in the 2020’s Awakening and EARTH HEART Shift promise. 

For those who wish to go back down memory lane to connect the dots:

Reinventing America, Understanding a 4 Personal Year Cycle 2018-2019

The Learning for America, Understanding a 3 Personal Year Cycle 2017- 2018

The Nurturing of America, Understanding a 2 Personal Year Cycle 2016 – 2017

Relating New Light for America, Understanding a 1 Personal Year Cycle 2015 -2016

Cultivating Courage for America, Understanding a 9 Personal Year, 2014- 2015

While all Americans should always be well advised of knowing how to work with Mercury Retrograde, they should ultimately be paying close close attention to all of them 2019 to 2020 so they are not caught by surprise whenever they show up. This natural and recurring cycle of reflection that affects anyone in the world whenever they are in transit, are critical to observe for human error, misinformation, and ultimately knowing no matters of importance for the future should be initiated under them. 

07 to 31 July 2019; Mercury Retrograde in Leo/Cancer

Approach starts: 20 June; Shadow ends: 14 August

31 October to 20 November 2019; Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio/Libra

Approach starts: 12 October; Shadow ends: 07 December

16 February to 09 March 2020; Mercury Retrograde in Pisces/Aquarius

Approach starts: 02 February; Shadow ends: 29 March

18 June to 12 July 2020; Mercury Retrograde in Cancer

Approach starts: 01 June; Shadow ends: 26 July

Overall, the varying road ahead of leveraging change and much irreversible energies will be more than causing movement to unfold for America throughout 04 July 2020. The time for The UNITED States of America to come together for whatever may be UNTIED and once again, mindfully pausing in a many SILENT LISTEN offerings, will be wise. Undeniably ways to work better with remembering how reflection is an important part of life for its’ sustainability and success – is one of the strongest requests of the 5’s guidance- as it teaches us that rolling stones never do really gather any moss. 

May openness, willingness to adapt, thinking for the self, grounded communications and finding the reasonability to guide America in this 5 Personal Year touch every citizen’s heart.

Allow Your Freedom to continue to Reign in Change Dear American Stars.

Redefining Values, Finances & Relationships in Summer 2015


Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

Should the very word “retrograde” typically scare the average star follower, this is merely because they are not in full awareness of how to optimally work with any given cycle of reflection rather than fight against it. Our planet of love, harmony, and luxury hasn’t taken a real vacation since late December 2013 and January 2014 when she was evening the score in Capricorn.

For the next few weeks -25 July to 06 September- as our Sun transits in very early Virgo and the majority of Leo, Venus will be resting up once more. Even though we aren’t as warned to watch out for zaniness as we are under such inner planetary reflection as Mercury and Mars request- a Venus Retrograde brings us to a deeper sense of what we value within our lives, what’s it all really worth and how we truly relate to it all.

What To Reflect Upon Under Venus Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

All beauty enhancements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.”

2. Money/Finances
Curious as to why the stock market computers went “silent” for a few hours on 08 July under the current Approach to Venus Retrograde? Aside from the possibilities of computer glitches, (equally as our Messenger Mercury was precisely on the tipping point of Gemini entering Cancer to add to this occurrence) you’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoiding any kind of luxury purchase is highly favored.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Wonderful Ways To Appreciate Venus Retrograde
BE charitable with money.
WATCH over-spending.
AVOID buying luxurious items, moving money to increase its’ value, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.
DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus Rx approved!
BE GRATEFUL for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what is worthy of gratitude and appreciation: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, music performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it all at this time. The older it is, the better.
REVISIT creative adventures already in progress. Reflect upon ways to improve them.

Where To Reflect | 0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo
This is the specific area of our Zodiac Pie that will be calling for a passage of reflection and review. Collectively, this retreat within The Virgin & The Lion specifies that we take a slow, patient pace here, and dive into what these signs request when it comes to developing both our discriminating and heartfelt responses.

Reflection in Virgo | 25 July, 5:23am EDT to 31 July, 11:27am EDT
The calling for pure, controlled, service-oriented and limited affections ask for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of correction, adjustments and details striving for perfection, all you will see that needs “fixing” will be revealed as a sense of self-surrender will be present at this time.

Reflection in Leo | 31 July 11:27am EDT to 06 September, 4:29am EDT
The calling for whole-hearted, faithful, inspiring and loyal affections asks for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of drama, creativity and nobility, all you will see that seeks to be realigned and balanced will reflect the best through returning to generosity and loyalty from our heart in order to make the proper reassessments.

What About YOU during this Cycle of Reflection?
The simplicity of knowing your sun sign is a great place to start while we all take up in value-oriented review. Where are you favored to place focus, taking time in retreat- to admire, weight the pros and cons, and then eliminate what is not worth the effort any longer?

If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant, this simple key will equally apply to your natal chart’s advice for this passage. Yet, we do always advise, have a professional astrologer do the accurate math for you.

Aries: I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 25 to 31 July
I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 31 July to 06 Sept

Taurus: I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 25 to 31 July
I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 31 July to 06 Sept

Gemini: I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 25 to 31 July

Pisces: I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others 25 to 31 July
I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 31 July to 06 Sept

Take these personalized areas of the life and see where you are asked to reflect upon Venus’s backwards journey. What is no longer of value to you or seemingly “worth it” from the particular area of life that Venus Retrograde is calling for your review, is extremely favored for release and review.

Thinking in Simpleton Terms
Simplicity and making life less complicated is always favored under any retrograde cycle, so the reflective tone of it can succeed with flying colors. We will stress again to remember no matter what sign you are, any creative endeavor involving the completely brand new in the areas of beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery, etc.), tend to not go over well. Whatever already exists or remains an unfinished creative project, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them for improvement. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to a harmonious completion under this passage.

Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions for long-term success until after 06 September 2015, (but remember again Mercury goes Retrograde within days of Venus returning to Direct motion upon 17 September until the 09 October, so be extra cautious with genuine long term decisions for success.)

Venus Retrogrades become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain, (and they’ll be ever proud of them under Leo’s energy). Before any boasting roars, they also may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if it does lean to the luxurious. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus and solution seeking research.

The Approach & Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Be aware that decisions and actions made as Venus started her approach -on 21 June while going Direct from 14 degrees Leo until Retrograde motion begins 25 July- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 06 September, the shadow will prevail until 08 October when Venus returns to 0 degrees Virgo, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde.

Decisions will be rather challenged as our summer turns into autumn, as our last Mercury Retrograde of 2015 runs 17 September to 09 October, whose Approach begins 28 August. As approaches, shadows, and retrogrades all intersect and overlap, our inner planets will be practically scream from above to reflect and reassess in the appropriate areas of our lives in which they call.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attracts herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the real truth of how we can reap rewards and stay in true tune with her request to revisit how we earn, understand and relate as we return to save our lives.



Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
Appreciate this time for reassessment where The Virgin & The Lion seek to align the details to bring matters of the heart to become more aligned with the decisions your head makes in your Zodiac Pie Dear Stars. Once 06 September comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness within your life unlike any other in quite some time.

Remember, what is deserved here comes from the acts of review under the retrograde. So rest and reset now, then happily gather your reward later! Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated, but what is meant to become simpler here, is the real value you’ll discover that is a genuine gift you’ve been patiently waiting for.
