SATURN IN RETROGRADE MOTION

Saturn has a 28 year cycle and remains in each zodiac sign about 2 ½ years. During its stay in these signs it moves into retrograde on a regular basis and about 15 degrees of each astrological sign experiences the retrograde motion of Saturn.


Â

Saturn went retrograde on April 7, 2017 and will remain retrograde until approximately August 26. To show the contrast of the energies of a retrograde planet (Jupiter being good luck and expansion) Jupiter’s energy while in retrograde motion works similar to the regular energies of Saturn (restrictive, traditional, the teacher) when it is direct. Saturn retrograde energies works similar to Jupiter direct motion and as a result, the extreme energies apparent with Saturn in its direct motion, become somewhat softened during it retrograde motion. Retrograde motion by planets implies that previous experiences or lessons similar may return once again and are now subject to review. Saturn’s retrograde motion differs however. Saturn normally deals with past issues and while in retrograde, it can and will open doors to new things that somehow we may feel familiar with, even though they are new to us.


Â

Some Astrologers link Saturn with diseases that have longevity and the duration of their affects is sometimes lengthened under the normal influence of Saturn. When Saturn is retrograde in motion any recovery process with these ailments may become speeded up and often the individuals that are involved feel more carefree and worry less about these conditions in their lives. This is beneficial as any concentration can enhance illness and draw even more energy into these areas. In many cases, disease can stem from adverse reactions to life’s events and it is wise to not allow obstructions or hard lessons to become personal or to own them which in turn can provide us with ease of moving beyond these experiences.


Â

Saturn is often linked to business in some way and during the course of transiting Saturn turning retrograde, it is wise not to enter into any news enterprises or business dealings. It is best to wait for Saturn to turn direct before moving forward in business related activities, even if you may feel somewhat positive about the outcome. Saturn is the planet of restraints and constructive organization related to business ventures which includes searching out a new career, entering into a study programme or beginning a new business. It is often best to wait before taking action for the retrograde motion to have completed its course and Saturn to return to direction motion.


Â

Check to see which house Saturn is transiting in your birth chart as this will provide you with more information and also check to see which house natal (birth) Saturn is occupying. These houses will be areas of life affected by the retrograde motion of Saturn. When Saturn is direct in its motion these areas will be avenues you can push ahead in although it is wise to take things slowly as you move forward. Saturn insists on a solid foundation.


Â

If Saturn is poorly aspected in your birth chart, the house where it is situated may require additional hard work and a conscious effort to resolve any issues related to that area of life. Since Saturn often points towards a dominant individual in your life (sometimes the most restrictive and strict parent) Saturn retrograde in the birth chart has been associated with that particular individual somehow missing in your life. The most authoritarian parent could be often away on business or actually missing from your life in early childhood.


Â

Wherever Saturn is found in a chart, whether it is in retrograde motion or direct motion, is often an area of life that requires more work and challenging conditions to overcome. However it should be pointed out that Saturn is the teacher as well as the disciplinarian in the chart, so it also rewards hard work and diligent efforts.
