On Sunday, October 10th, Saturn stations direct as we resume forward motion, the pressures of the past few months begin to lift.
This is our third out of four planets to station direct in two weeks. On October 6th, Pluto stationed direct with the new moon, and on the 17th and 18th, Jupiter and Mercury will station direct, respectively.
Because of all of these planets returning to direct motion right now, these two weeks are a big shift forward for us, and Saturn's return to forward motion is coming as sweet relief after a long retrograde summer.
Saturn stationed retrograde back on May 23rd, in between Pluto stationing retrograde in late April, and Jupiter following suit in mid-June.
Retrogrades are reviews, and no matter which planet is backtracking, they always have us slowing down, turning inward, and learning lessons.
However Saturn retrograde can feel more challenging to us, as Saturn is the planet of limits and boundaries.
Saturn's lessons involve responsibility and maturity. It asks us to step into our own authority. If we aren't in our authority when Saturn is in play, we might find authority from the outside coming down on us, and it is likely to feel quite oppressive.
When Saturn is in retrograde, we can feel slowed down or completely stopped, and our duties and responsibilities can feel much too heavy, like constant pressure that might break us. It can feel like there is no end in sight. This in turn can have us feeling depressed, weighted by sadness, sorrow, and grief.
The good news is, Saturn is the Roman god of the harvest. When we do the work, we reap the rewards. Saturn, no matter how challenging, is always asking us to build a better foundation and structure from which to cultivate the fruits of our love and labor.
On Sunday, October 10th, Saturn stations direct and slowly resumes forward motion. As it does this, the pressure eases up and we get to move forward again too.
In light of this important shift forward, I've pulled an oracle card to give us a bit more information on Saturn direct this year.
For the entire year of 2021, Saturn in Aquarius is in square to Uranus in Taurus, as they intersect paths three separate times on February 17th, June 14th, finally coming to resolution on December 24th.
Saturn being at an energetic impasse with Uranus, planet of the future and sudden change through upheaval, makes for an even more difficult retrograde period, as we are caught in between being pulled back into reviews and lessons and the urge to push forward into the new, break free, and innovate.
However, the Saturn retrograde itself makes several supportive aspects, so this helps ease us through it.
The key here is to focus on doing the work of building the foundations and structures that Saturn wants. 2021 is a transition year, and with its main energetic signature being the Saturn-Uranus square, we are working out how to move forward, creating the new routines, new foundations, new structures, new traditions, and new rules that will hold us when we actually step into the new that Uranus is bringing.
Although it is likely that during Saturn's retrograde since May 23rd we have felt restricted and limited in different ways, and that has brought up frustration, grief, and even depression, we were being asked to do the work and build a container to hold the new.
This retrograde has also been blessed by goddess of love and money, relationships and resources, Venus. When Saturn and Venus come together we get spiritual and/or karmic love, stability and maturity in love, and both love and business/financial endeavors or investments that are long-lasting. (Venus and Saturn can also point to a long-term relationship in love or business with someone much older or younger than you.)
Looking at the past few months through this lens, can you see the work you have been doing to create the foundation and structure for moving forward into the future?
