Saturn Retrograde In Libra
February 7 Saturn turns retrograde 9:03am
Oh, you too, Saturn!
And just because God has a sense of humor we also get Saturn turning retrograde on this cycle. “My goodness what’s left?” Saturn in Libra is just pushing us all to get our relationships straight. If we have aligned ourselves up with someone who is not really in sync with our core then we may see the relationship strain. A retrograde Saturn is not unusual it happens about every 18 months and gives us another shot at getting stuff right.
Saturn turns retrograde on Feb 7 and then turns direct on June 25 where it picks up speed and by November it will have left Libra for Scorpio. When it moves into Scorpio it will be focused on resources, sex, taxes, power and death & rebirth but before we get there we need to finish up our business with Libra. What is going on with our commitments? What is going on with our relationships? Who are our partners? Are we in sync? Have we outgrown each other? Or are we tired of the fluffy superficial people and we are drawn to our relationships that are meatier and more real? Are we confused who is real and who is not?
All of this will get cleaned up between now and the end of June. For those people with planets between 21 and 29 degrees Libra, Aries, Cancer & Capricorn you are going to feel the pressures of Saturn more than the rest of us.
Remember, he is the ultimate father in our chart. He comes in and cleans up the crap. So, whatever planet is at those degrees you should be prepared for a little ‘whoop ass’. Not the end-of-the-world whooping but just the, ‘Yeah, I should’ve known this was coming” kind of bump. Saturn is not a surprise planet. He is the writing on the wall. So, try to get ahead of it if you can and do the work yourself before Saturn gets in there. By the way, this is ‘doctor heal thyself’ I have got a planet or two at those degrees. I’m in the mix myself!
