So Saturn retrograde is fully underway as it began on May 10th, and it will stay in retrograde until September 28th, 2020. This Saturn retrograde is special as it is the first time it will be retrograding since it entered the sign Aquarius back on March 21st, 2020. During this retrograde, Saturn will move through the early degrees of Aquarius but fall back into Capricorn on July 1st, where it will remain for the entire retrograde. Saturn will not be making its way back into Aquarius until December 17th, but once it does arrive, it will remain there for the next 2.5 years.
So that you have a little preview into 2021, Saturn in Aquarius is some key energy due to the alignment it will make with Jupiter. This will be the very 'Age of Aquarius.' Let us first delve into this retrograde and the final visit to Capricorn.
Saturns Final Visit to Capricorn
Saturn ventured into Capricorn back in December 2017. During this time, Saturn has hit us pretty hard with some lessons. This is because Saturn loves being in Capricorn and is fully able to express its fullest qualities while in this sign. Being a Capricorn is like a rebirth of sorts for Saturn. Like all rebirths, the nature and quality of the planet become stronger and more aligned with where we are heading, rather than where we have already been. Saturn moving retrograde back into Capricorn is like the final step on this journey. It will return to the comforts of its home one last time to ensure whatever wisdom is needed to be collected will be found.
This is being mirrored in our own lives too. Whatever worked when we have been doing since the end of 2017, and it is going to be highlighted for us. The Universe is going to ensure that we collect all the lessons needed. During this period, we may feel a sense of reward for all of our efforts, but we may also want to revisit the past and tie up any loose ends. Saturn will not be returning to Capricorn again for another 28 years, so it is going to do everything it possibly can to make sure all the work that needs to be done is done.
What Saturns Retrograde will bring
This Saturn retrograde is likely to bring up memories of our childhood and our relationship with our dad or the males in our lives. It may even trigger our connection with masculine energy in general. We may be guided to take a more masculine approach when it comes to creating structure, order, and routine in our lives. Saturn will be asking us to look at what we have been working on over the last six months and to think about whether we like how we have been spending our time. Saturn rules the construct of time. Even though it can be a planet of tough love, it wants us to be happy with how we are spending our time. It ensures we are using our time here to work through our soul lessons and not get overly distracted. Distractions are part of our day-to-day life, but Saturn is here to be the voice of reason and bring us back to the right path for our soul. Saturn loves work but only the right work for us. Think about where this resonated with you; I am aware that 2020 may not feel like it is on our side, but Saturn is encouraging us to think again. We must be patient, gentle, and loving with ourselves throughout this journey. Saturn is the voice that encourages us to make the best of what we have been given.
