Saturn retrograde in Aquarius

     Saturn has just gone retrograde in its own house of Aquarius and will remain retrograde until February 4, 2025. Saturn is a planet of work and the results of work and therefore considered as one who dispenses the results of karma. He also represents structures, limits, justice, and struggle. It is a planet, especially in Aquarius, that indicates large institutions and systems like governments, bureaucracies, economies, and the legal system.

     A retrograde often puts unusual obstacles in our path that make us reflect and reevaluate things indicated by the planet. This means institutions are likely to fail or to function in unexpected ways. This is a time that will appear chaotic, but underneath a restructuring of large institution is taking place. Saturn is also aspecting Mars in Aries and this puts a lot of pressure on the action and will of the individual, it sets individuals against institutions, accelerating social breakdown and leading to outbreaks of conflict. However, Mars will leave Aries and enter Taurus in ten days, allowing it to escape this aspect and relieving some pressure and intensity. This will be especially intense for the USA and the country’s natal moon is in Aquarius and is currently wedged between a retrograde Saturn and Rahu in Pisces; caught between a planet of harsh reality and one of addictive illusion.

      Mercury has entered Cancer, Venus exited Ardra nakshatra, and the Sun will exit Ardra nakshatra in a couple of days. Mercury in Cancer can create chaotic, inconsistent, and quickly changing thought patterns. This can lead to emotional reactivity and instability. Nothing appears solid or safe and there is a general sense of anxiety and confusion.  This effect will spread to relationships, health, and your sense of authority or ability to be effective in your life as the Sun and Venus are in Mercury ruled Gemini. However, as they have exited Ardra nakshatra these planets will be less destructive.

     To understand how these transits affect you an individual analysis is required. The interaction between your natal chart and the transits of the planets is always very individual and personal. Contact me for a reading at .
