According to astrology, Saturn is the planet of discipline, lessons, humility, patience, goal setting. Saturn also rules the joints, skin, teeth, bile, liver. On May 23, Saturn went retrograde in the sign of Aquarius and will remain so until October 11.
During this period, it is important to reflect on what has happened in our lives in terms of career, finances, even our daily life. Saturn will test us, but it also gives us the opportunity to reevaluate the decisions we've made and reconsider anything that needs attention.
We can perceive this planetary transit as some kind of universal exercise - a "year in review", according to some Western astrologers. It's time to face some blocks that we feel are preventing us from taking responsibility for our lives. In the next few months, we will slow down, looking back to assess where we are and where we would like to be. Saturn will illuminate all those small steps we could take to move forward.
We will want to part with everything that anchors us so that we can rethink our goals. Maybe it's time to let go of something we dreamed of in the past, when we weren't as aware and mature. The Saturn transit is a reassessment of what we want for ourselves and is a great time for change, whether it's in relationships, work, friendships, goals. We part with the past, for the better to come.
Saturn reminds us to ask ourselves questions about whether we remember the losses, the lessons we learned in the last year. The influence of Aquarius (as the transit occurs in this air sign) – a forward-thinking sign, prompts us to think about the future.
The energy of Saturn retrograde helps us grow from a time of fear and limitation into a better version of ourselves. It won't be easy, we may encounter difficulties, but we will manage to deal with them.
It is important to take good care of our mind and body so that we can maintain our productivity at good levels. Saturn reminds us to respect ourselves, to set boundaries in communication with others and not to allow ourselves to be manipulated. If you have treated someone unfairly, don't be surprised if you begin to regret it during this transit. We are required to have no limiting beliefs, negative thinking and create more he althy habits.
