Hey there, star gazers! 🌟 Let the retrograde rollercoaster ride begin! Hold on tight because on June 29, 2024, Saturn hits the rewind button 🪐⏪✨

What is Saturn Retrograde?

Get ready for a celestial shakeup as Saturn goes retrograde in the innovative sign of Aquarius. We all know Mercury retrograde can mess with our plans, but Saturn retrograde? It’s a whole different ball game! Known as the “tough love” planet in both Western and Vedic astrology, Saturn’s reputation precedes it. But don’t worry—this is your cosmic opportunity to make some serious life improvements, especially in your relationships.

Feel the Stationary Power

Just before Saturn turns retrograde, around June 28, it will be “stationary direct”—a supercharged moment! If you have any natal planets between 22-28 degrees of Aquarius, you’re in for an intense experience. This is a powerful time to harness Saturn’s energy and make significant strides in your personal growth, especially in your relationships.

Saturn Retrograde: The Cosmic Taskmaster

When Saturn retrogrades at 25 degrees Aquarius, it’s time to pay attention to the natural 11th house vibes—think networking, groups, desires, and gains. Aquarius is all about community and making the world a better place, so this retrograde is perfect for reevaluating how we connect with humanity and contribute to the greater good.

Saturn and Relationships

Saturn is known for being the slowest planet (excluding the outer planets like Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto), and it brings themes of delays, setbacks, problems, and even our deepest fears. But Saturn isn’t all doom and gloom! It also gifts us resilience, persistence, and perseverance—qualities that help us through our darkest times. In relationships, Saturn retrograde can act like a cosmic magnifying glass, highlighting issues that need attention and helping us build stronger, more resilient connections.

The “R” Words of Saturn Retrograde

Anytime a planet goes retrograde, it’s a signal to focus on the “R” words: review, reassess, reevaluate, reconsider, reflect, reorganize, rebuild, recalibrate—you get the idea. Saturn retrograde is the ultimate time to wind down and take stock. The house Saturn is retrograding through in your chart will highlight the area of your life where you’ve faced tests, delays, and obstacles. It’s where you’ve had to take responsibility, meet obligations, and learn some tough lessons.

Relationships Under the Saturn Retrograde Lens

Reflect: Take a stroll down memory lane and think about past relationships. What worked? What didn’t? Use these insights to improve your current relationships.

Reassess: Are your current relationships aligning with your long term goals and values? Saturn retrograde encourages you to reassess your connections and make necessary adjustments.

Rebuild: If there have been conflicts or misunderstandings, now is the time to rebuild trust and communication. Saturn’s influence helps you create a solid foundation.

 Reconnect: Use this period to reconnect with old friends or partners. Sometimes, looking back can help us move forward with more clarity and purpose.

Embrace the Cosmic Challenge

Saturn retrograde in Aquarius is your chance to pause and really dig deep. Embrace the opportunity to reflect on your goals, reassess your strategies, and rebuild stronger foundations. Whether it’s about your career, relationships, or personal aspirations, Saturn’s retrograde motion is here to help you become more resilient and focused.

So, grab a cup of tea, light some candles, and get ready for some serious introspection. Remember, the stars are always guiding us to be our best selves!
