Saturn starts its reverse motion (retrograde) through Libra on January 25th. It won't go direct again until June, giving us a nice long stretch to re-consider plans and commitments. If what you're building is meant to last it will still be there (and be stronger) by this summer.
Take another look at a relationship issue as Saturn retrogrades through your partnership sector. Discussions involving commitments, balance and boundaries may need to be re-visited. If there have been responsibilities that you've been ignoring they will demand your attention now. Alternatively, you could see the return of a heavy duty relationship from the past.
Work and/or health issues must be addressed as Saturn retrogrades through your sector of day- to- day activities. You could see a temporary retreat of work responsibilities so use this time to attend to stress related illness or fatigue. Achieving a balance between duty and self care will be the theme over the next few months.
It's time to give success another shot as Saturn retrogrades through your sector of creativity and celebrations. Ongoing projects may need to be re-vamped but you'll feel the return of self confidence as the pressure eases up temporarily. Use this time to re-gain lost ground or strengthen the foundation of something that's important to you. Alternatively, issues involving children may need a second look.
Plans involving home or family could stall temporarily with Saturn's retrograde. Progress will be very difficult at the moment so don't try to force things. What will work now is taking another look at how far you've come and what you've accomplished. It's possible that something needs to be corrected regarding family relationships. Alternatively, issues or people from your childhood could re-appear.
Plans or ideas may slow as Saturn retrogrades in your sector of communications. Now is not the time to push forward with your ideas. Use this break to review what's been said so far and make sure that it will stand the test of time. You could be feeling less talkative (or optimistic) then usual so keep in mind that things should move forward again by June.
You've been dealing with a less then welcoming financial landscape so what does it mean when Saturn reverses through your sector of security? You probably won't see any cash windfalls but you should notice the pressure lifting a bit. Even if financial planning is temporarily delayed you can use this time to review what you've set in motion.
You've been putting some serious effort into building your new life and haven't missed a trick. Have you? Saturn's retrograde asks you to take another look at the changes you've made. This doesn't mean that you've done it wrong. It's just another chance to make sure that your new foundations are water tight.
Saturn retrogrades through your sector of hidden things, turning your attention to an even deeper level. Issues involving isolation, hidden fears or subconscious attitudes may demand a second look. Allow it all to unfold, keeping in mind that a transformation as profound as the one you're going through needs to be thorough.
Saturn retrogrades through your public sector, asking you to look very closely at friends and associates. Can you count on them when things get tough? You could find out now so sit back and watch for those who are truly there for you. By June some associations may end but the ones who are left will be there for life.
Saturn (your ruler) retrogrades through your career sector. This doesn't mean that you will lose all the gains that you've made but it does mean that your plans may be delayed. That's fine, because you need the rest. Take stock of where you are right now and make sure things are secure as you will be moving forward again come June.
Saturn retrogrades through your sector of opportunities, bringing you a reminder of existing limits. The last thing you need is another reason why you can't go there or do that. Remember why this is happening in the first place: your focus needs to be in a certain area. Are you sure that it hasn't shifted?
Just when you thought you had mapped out a plan to deal with financial and/or anxiety issues, Saturn starts to move in reverse. Plans may be delayed but this is temporary. You haven't lost any ground, you're just going over what you've prepared. It pays to be thorough, especially when dealing with boundaries, security and other people's money.
