Saturn, the Planet of Karma, is currently in retrograde where it will remain until September 6th, it’s powerful energy forcing us to come face to face with our life choices. Will you reap the benefits of good karma, be rewarded for your good deeds, or will this be a time of retribution, self-reflection, and transformation?
When Saturn is direct, it’s energy encourages us to work hard, show discipline and focus on our responsibilities in life. This serious and results driven planet may overlook the fun and entertaining side of life, but it is necessary if we are going to reach true success in our goals and dreams. Don’t resist, as it will continue to push and demand more from you until such time that you give in!
When this planet moves into retrograde, karma is looking to us to answer for all of our actions. You will be rewarded for the things that you have done well, bringing a positivity into your life. However, be warned – even the most positive of individuals have, at one time or another, done something they aren’t proud of. Whether you have teased or belittled others, engaged in gossip or perpetrated some horrible action during your life, karma will be visiting you. This can be a time of negative emotions, stress, and feelings of judgment and persecution.
How will Saturn Retrograde affect your life, according to your zodiac sign?
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You will feel this impact hitting hardest in the area of your career, making even the hardest tasks about difficult and frustrating. This is going to highlight everything about your current job, the kind of person that it is turning you into and the sacrifices you are willing to make to achieve success. Take a moment to consider whether these choices go against your morals and beliefs and if they do it may be time to consider a career change!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
If there is one thing that we all need to accept in life, it is that we are always learning and growing. Our education doesn’t end with graduation – in fact, some may argue that this is where the real education begins! This energy will highlight the opportunities that you have overlooked or chosen to ignore, moving you further away from your goals and dreams. The purpose? It will give you a second chance to embrace these life lessons and get yourself back on track.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
While you may be the light that brightens the lives of everyone around you, life is about more than just relationships. You are slightly flighty and forgetful, which often leads you to fall short of your responsibilities, especially when it comes to your finances! The hard lesson Saturn Retrograde is going to teach you is one of financial responsibility, including debt management and budgeting. It’s not fun, but it’s so necessary!
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
As a highly emotional individual, it’s not unheard of for you to react impulsively guided solely by your heart. This can be incredibly hard on your relationships, pushing people away that once held an important role in your life. Despite this, you often see yourself as the victim, which is what karma is looking to break. It’s time to recognize the way that you have hurt others so as to allow you to develop better, lasting relationships in the future.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Success and adoration are certainly great goals in life, but you need to remember that they aren’t everything. There is little you won’t do to claw your way to the top, including sacrificing your own health and well-being. You may suddenly find yourself facing a health crisis; however, have faith that this will work out. While it will be difficult, this struggle is put in your life to remind you that your health is fragile.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
You are highly focused on perfection and success, but this approach to life can cause you to not only drain the happiness from your own life, but also from everyone else around you. You’re often seen as a killjoy – and karma is determined to set this straight. Be prepared to have your eyes opened to just how much fun the world can be. Embrace it!
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Dedicating your life to bringing peace and harmony to the world as a whole, you often neglect the effort needed to bring this same balance into your own home. Not only is your home supposed to be your safe haven, your decisions regarding your home life will also directly impact your family. Karma will call on you to spend more time with your family members, giving them the love, devotion, and dedication that they deserve.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
If you have noticed a distance growing between yourself and your loved ones, it’s time to spend some time to consider just what, and who, may be at fault. Spoiler alert – karma has come to highlight your weaknesses not to show you weakness in everyone else. Reflect upon your closest relationships, are you actively showing that you care and support them? If not, it may be time to redirect some of your time and energy.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
While you enjoy living life as an adventure, always on the go in search of your next grand experience, however, there is an element of reality and responsibility that also needs your consideration. The one topic that makes you most anxious is your finances, an area that demands your attention. Take this time to reassess your spending habits and your efforts regarding saving and put some effort into developing a greater level of financial responsibility.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Constantly pushing yourself to move forward and achieve great things, you forget to enjoy the things that you earn along the way. You know what they say, all work and no play… When you fail to enjoy life, you not only rob yourself of this enjoyment, but you also deny others the joy that you bring into this world. Karma is going to force you to take a step back and focus on yourself, even if it has to knock you down to make it happen.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Facing a time of difficulty in your life, you are quick to play the victim card and blame everyone else for your struggles. However, as karma is going to reveal, this is the very time in which you should be focusing that attention back on yourself. There is no one else in charge of your joy and happiness – it’s a choice that you make each and every day. Don’t underestimate its power.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The energy of Saturn Retrograde is going to focus itself specifically on your relationships, calling on you to acknowledge the effort that you’re putting forward. Relationships are a two-way street, but you often fall into the habit of taking without giving in return. This is not only counterproductive to building a lasting relationship but also harmful to those others involved. It’s time to step up!
