Saturn in retrograde began back in May on the 11th in the sign Aquarius but as time has passed this celestial bodies has moved quite a bit. Now Saturn is present in the sign Capricorn and will remain there until retrograde is over.
Now for those who do not know, Saturn’s retrograde is all about karma and karmic issues. This retrograde pushes us to get things done and really brings a lot of things to light that we otherwise don’t realize are issues within. I know, that may sound vague but it’s important to note.
Astrology king wrote as follows about these transitioning energies:
Transiting Saturn retrograde can be a time of limitation, restriction, anxiety, and fear. In recent months since Saturn entered the retrograde zone, you will have dealt with particular issues involving your duties and responsibilities as they relate to your dependents and career.
Saturn retrograde suggests this area of responsibility is so important, extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. You may be tested to make sure you are ready to take on the extra responsibility. The lessons you learn might be hard but they will be valuable.
On the other hand, it could be that negative Saturn behavior such as sadness or shyness has gotten out of control. In this case, the Saturn retrograde months will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your depression or isolation.
By the time Saturn stations direct, you should have come to terms with the relevant issues and be ready for the next phase. Focus and motivation lead to productiveness, achievement, and recognition.
As you can see, if we listen to these energies and allow them to work in our lives we will be able to overcome a lot. There are lessons all around us and the more willing we are to learn them, the better. While some of them might be hard to face, they are all going to be before us for specific reasons.
Don’t hide from the energies you’re feeling. Let them work for you as the universe sees fit. I know, they can be a bit confusing but the more you work with them the more clear their intent will become.
Things are not always what they seem and while you’ve been through a lot you’ve also got a lot to work through as a whole. Take responsibility with these energies and see where it is they end up taking you as a whole. I for one will be embracing them as best I can for as long as they are present.
