Saturn deals with karma, limits, responsibility, tradition, conservativeness, authorities, long term goals and accomplishments patiently created, taking responsibility, creating structure, and setting boundaries. Once a year the planet Saturn goes into retrograde for about four-and-a-half months. During this influence, one will probably find it unwise to attempt sudden changes or to rush through things. We must take practical steps and accept limitations while we take serious steps toward our long term goals. Saturn retrograde can cause oneself to become our own hardest taskmaster, limiting our actions or leave oneself feeling blocked and pessimistic. .
Saturn retrograde in one’s natal chart, indicates that one is likely to have been abused by those with power over oneself, perhaps having faced unfair situations at home. One may need to declare personal boundaries, to work out conflicts with authority on a karmic scale. One could feel that fate conspires against one’s desires but it’s really oneself putting the brakes on, through feelings of persecution or inhibition in the house where it is placed until we work out how to face doing or confronting whoever or whatever it is that threatens us. Our lesson is one of patience and steady application of hard work as we overcome the impatient urge to cut corners. Everything we gain will be hard won but we will eventually succeed, win the respect of others and actually can shine where we faced difficulties before.
