Saturn Retrograde: Saturnian Powers Activate; Form Of Stability!

If you’ve lacked structure in your life, then look no further Saturn Retrograde has you covered! This inverse phase will give you a much-needed reality check when it comes to cleaning up your act and becoming a responsible individual.

Sure, that doesn’t sound fun, and you might want to wiggle your way out of getting serious about your life, but if you are getting aspected by this Celestial Body primarily through an RX Cycle then you kind of have no choice but to learn the art of discipline. You must clear out what doesn’t work and create new sustainable structures so you can become masterful.

Saturn brings karma, so anything that needs to be resolved must be taken care of, with no compromises. Retrogrades, play out on a collective level as well as individuals, especially with the outer planets. Let go of things you can’t control. Typically this planet goes inverse on an annual basis for about 4 ½ months.

Year-after-year we have a Saturnian lesson to learn, depending on what it is Aspecting in your personal chart. If it is a more intense aspect like Conjunctions, Squares, or Oppositions this will give you the feeling your hand is being forced, and it’s time to redirect your energies. If you are experiencing this through Trines or Sextiles it will feel less restricted and more like you are reaping the rewards from the hard work you did in the past.

Even if you aren’t feeling these energies yourself, you can still watch the vibrational shift on a world stage. Or it could be people in your life that appear to be going through some change on a personal level during an Inverse Cycle.

Saturn Retrograde Vibes and how they affect you

Saturn Retrograde Vibes and how they affect you

Think of Saturn as that friend who tells you the truth even if you don't want to see or hear it. Things that happen are for your own good with Saturn because this planet wants you to get your shit together and not settle for less than excellence.

Saturn Retrogrades have various themes and can be broken down into four areas that need restricting in your life.

The four areas that need attention during this inverse cycle are: Karma That Needs to Be Collected or Paid Off

  • Facing things that you need to take responsibility for

  • Getting a reality check because you've refused to own up to your misdeeds

  • Gaining integrity within yourself

  • Paying in penalties and interest in a karmic way

  • Situations have reached it's peak of maturation and need to be cleared up

  • Lost of things

Get Some Structure in Your Diet

  • Commitment issues come up during this time. Also, any previous commitments you made need another look before you honor that "contract"

  • Look over your plans and revise

  • Fix structures in your life and home

  • Get organized, Clear out outworn structures that no longer makes sense and rebuild

Why So Restricted?

  • If you have been too close off this retrograde will cause you to come out of your shell or other areas, you were restricted

  • Depression is a huge issue that will go through a review on how to get you back on your feet again

  • Things get put on pause until you do the work

  • If you have been feeling miserable and detaching yourself from others than the RX will force you to clear out what is causing you to feel hopeless


  • It's time to grow up- there are areas of your life that you must become mature in

  • Learn discipline with yourself and others

  • Accountability

  • Boundaries, it would help if you made put limits on yourself and others in a way that is healthy

  • Becoming realistic about life in the area Saturn is aspecting

  • Cleaning up your act and learning to restrict things that don't help you

  • Gaining the focus in areas of your life that need attention

  • Be strong and say no to toxic people, don't be a pushover

As this Retrograde comes to the middle and end, The reasons you were put on hold become very clear; you needed to pause so you can look at the situation from a different set of eyes and with more maturity.

Saturn only gives you what you want once you've proven you can manage the responsibility that comes with said opportunity. Think of it as your parents putting away money for you at 18; there is no way they could give it to you because it would all be spent. By 25, you are least likely to blow through all of it, and if they wait until you're 30 or after your Saturn return, you are least likely to buy stupid shit.

So now that you have mastered your lesson you will have permission to go for what you've wanted. However, if it was something that just wasn't right for you nor realistic then that situation will be cleared out for a different structure that suits the new foundation you are creating for yourself.

Now that you’ve made it out on the other side of Saturn's inverse cycle it’s time to get moving again. You’ve cleared out things that were no good for you and restructured your plan in a way that will be sustainable and become something that you can be proud of because you worked your ass off to achieve it. Also, you survived a retrograde that forced you to grow up, so pat yourself on the back and live a life that is free of restriction.
