Saturn Retrograde...


About Saturn and has to do with a Saturn Retrograde...

Saturn is about responsibility, allegiance, tenacity, things that last, pattern, essence, limits and obligation.

It is about building up an empire; making a strong base that you can develop from, working towards something.

Without a strong base, we become precarious and we can't accomplish things.

We drift around with no insight, reason or focus; aimless with nothing to hold onto or strive towards.

How to deal with a Retrograde in Saturn...

It's a good time to take it easy and reflect on things, learn the lessons asking to be learned.

In a Saturn in retrograde period,  we should let things remain as they are.  A Saturn retrograde needs to blow over before any new project starts.

If you want to start anew, it's not a suitable time.

In this retrograde, proceed with things in a methodical way, make sure you do things right, so you don't have to go back and do them again. 

Time to breathe and do things right the first time.

You shouldn't use your methods of saving time or effort in your projects, you should do it right, do it the long way.

During this retrograde, you should maintain the place that you are in when it comes to career or societal status.

Allow for this retrograde time period to blow over before breaking out for any a new career and or social position.

We will continue to deal with Saturn’s holdups, letdowns, loss and restrictions as long as we are unwilling to accept self-control. Saturn isn't all bad, in fact Saturn wants us to learn sympathy and gain good judgment.

During this retrograde we should live with the restrictions that are Saturn, while using pragmatic measures to achieve our hopes.
