Saturn ♄ goes direct!



Saturn ♄, the planet which rules the important practical foundations of our lives, has been retrograde since January 26, slowing down external results while we integrated the past and discerned where we needed to work quietly and steadily on long-term or serious projects and relationships. Now that Saturn is turning direct tonight, we will begin to see the fruits of our labor and move forward toward our goals more directly.

The reason I mention relationships, not a word typically associated with Saturn, is because Saturn is currently in Libra ♎, the sign that rules partnerships of all kinds.

Saturn retrograde in Libra



Saturn (planet of hard work and karma) retrograde in Libra (sign of partnership, justice, and harmony) is a major review period. It can correlate with taking a hard look at the reality of a relationship, or its absence; remind us of old ties that may need tending, or of ethics in love we wish to reclaim and uphold... For Libra peace is the sacred goal, but we are urged to be thoughtful & loving as we grasp for it.

Saturn goes retrograde



As Saturn ♄ retrogrades on 1/26 thru 6/12, the commitment to work persistently toward goals and the ability to fulfill responsibilities with discipline, in order to lay a strong foundation for one’s life & being, will be up for assessment. Saturn retrograde gives an opportunity to pause and reflect on one’s progress, catch up on missed steps, and redefine ambitions for the purpose of building something more stable.

Personally I am looking forward to the pause, reflection, and catch up time! All planets direct has been intense!! Check to see where you have Libra ♎ in your chart. Saturn will be moving backwards from 17º Libra to 10º Libra, showing which area of life you have been working hard in and where the reflection/reassessment will be taking place.


Since Saturn is about boundaries and responsibilities, one way to harness Saturn Retrograde and the idea of reassessment, is to determine if you need to set better boundaries because you have taken on too much responsibility and feel overwhelmed or overburdened...
