The retrogradation of Saturn is a kind of inner, psychological movement that gives us the opportunity to change who we are. During a retrograde, we can develop a new way of protecting ourselves from the outside world, delineating our own place in the world. Saturn gives a new way to stand up for our personality and individuality. During the retrograde of Saturn we may want or need to give a new shape to everything that has a defined form. During this retrograde, one wonders about appropriateness, relevance and efficiency of the structures in which we live and work, or those which we built internally and externally. This can therefore directly affect our involvement in society, our social role or our profession.
This is not a good time to make important career changes, especially if it is in a new field. Better to stick to the responsibilities we have, even if they seem to exhaust us. On the positive side, it is a good time to take inventory of oneself and build solid internal bases. If Saturn in retrograde coincides with dissonant aspects, it may bring out some weak elements of our personality that need to be corrected. Saturn in retrograde, how does it affect your sign?
