Saturn Retrograde, 2/7/2012 through 6/25/12

Saturn begins its retrograde motion in Libra on Tuesday, February 7, continuing “backwards” until June 25. Just like any other retrograde planet (including that trickster Mercury), periods of retrograde are periods of “re:” renewing, reflecting, restarting, etc. Instead of being viewed negatively, these retrograde periods are a positive time to slow down (especially as Saturn now turns retrograde, and for the next few days) and possibly make some necessary changes.

Saturn, ruler of Capricorn and the 10th house, symbolizes goals, responsibilities, and limits, so now is the time to reflect on any sources of frustration in your life caused by these things (or a lack of). Now is not the time to start new projects but rather to finish up any Saturn-related business left unattended. Saturn in Libra provides us a time to realize goals by working with others, and perhaps this is what needs to be re-evaluated (again with the “re”).

Pay attention to what house in your chart Saturn stations retrograde in, as that is where you will be most impacted (depending on the house, the focus of your re-assessments could be money, relationships, career, etc.). Use this time to gain insight and grow, making plans for the changes you will make when Saturn goes direct on June 25.

Hi Anna,

I’ve been looking for a job for about a month now with no success yet. My ascendant is in Taurus, Saturn is in my 6th house in Jupiter and Sun is in Capricorn. I’ve always had good luck with finding work, but this time it has been difficult.

Could you tell me whether the retrograde affects such things? And if so for how long?

Thanks a lot.
