The wait is over -- Saturn turned retrograde on May 11, 2020 in Aquarius and is now finally direct today September 29, 2020 at 1:11 am EDT! (Gotta love that angel number in there!)
It’s been a long time coming as with traditional Saturn lessons, practice makes perfect.
Astrological Energy Shift: Saturn Direct In Its Home of Capricorn
Anytime a planet transits to it’s “home” or in the sign that has named that particular planet it’s planetary ruler, the energy is much more cohesive.
Saturn is already NOT one of the easiest planets to work with energetically, but it’s one of the most influential for your development in this human experience.
Saturn has been in retrograde for about four months, urging us to become more disciplined towards our future. As with any retrograde energy, you’re called to answer some reassessing questions, like:
Am I moving towards my intended purpose?
How hard am I willing to work for this?
If I remain consistent, when can I expect to see results?
Saturn retrogrades can be difficult because you may experience delays that can be frustrating and discouraging -- but you’ve made it through!
Now that it’s direct, this energy can start flowing in a forward-moving direction. Soon, you’ll be able to see how your hard work is going to pay off, especially in your career sector.
It’s still going to be important to remain consistent as Saturn rewards those who can stay committed to a vision.
This is very practical, grounded energy and your ideas can definitely manifest if you’ve prepared for them. Don’t let up, your rewards are on their way!
Maximize This Energy
This past Saturn retrograde cycle might have shown you what you’re made of. Do you buckle under pressure? Do you fold when you don’t experience instant gratification?
Even if you did, these were learning lessons for you. Saturn’s structured energy is here to help propel you towards your purpose -- all you have to do is accept the responsibility that comes with it.
If this feels overwhelming or confusing, find a balance between your work life and your home life. Remember, Cancer is the sister sign Capricorn, so inserting that separation from personal space and career time can make all the difference.
Saturn is literally father time while Cancer is the mother of the zodiac. Implementing a structured schedule that works for you can balance your emotional needs with your career ambitions.
Where is Saturn in your natal birth chart? Identifying this placement can help you to understand where you need to be more disciplined in your life.
Remember this isn’t a lesson that can be fully learned with a year of retrograde cycles and this placement provides a lifetime of lessons. Be patient with yourself and remain steady in your efforts.
“I celebrate Saturn’s forward motion and choose to utilize this energy to finally move things forward with my career and work life. And I commit to following through on my goals now that this shift in energy has made that easier for me.”
