Good Riddance To Saturn in Libra

Enough with Saturn in Libra already. He enters Scorpio on October 5th. Good riddance, right?

Well, almost.

If you have planets or angles (cusps of the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th Houses) between 22 and 29 degrees Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn, you'll feel Saturn's restrictions between now and October. Saturn is currently moving backwards (retrograde) in Libra, and those last few degrees will feel the pinch. This spring and summer may be a grind for some of you.

Saturn retrograde can feel like one step forward, two steps back. You work your butt off to establish (Saturn) something, but lose something else in the process. Libra balances one thing against another and Saturn's karmic rules can make that balance excruciatingly fine. This is not a time when you get to have it all. And you're's not fair.

No matter how painful Saturn's limits are, know that he leaves you with exactly what you need. This will sound cruel when you lose something or someone. But this is when you remind yourself of Saturn's purpose; to focus your attention on the essentials. The Libra area of your chart is where Saturn wants you to dig in, one last time, and work with what's left. "Work" is key here because that's how you get on Saturn's good side. Find your authority (Saturn has gifted you with some by this point). Use it. Focus on what you can control and let the rest go.

Your reward? You'll come out of this with something (an enhanced bond with your partner, platinum grade independence, a take-no-prisoners goal, etc.) that is hard as diamonds. Saturn always rewards those who work with his limits.

Saturn goes direct in Libra on June 25th.
