Saturn rules time (how long things take, as well as time in regard to generations, eras), karma (karma is not bad... unless you (or an ancestor) are.. it is the bounce back lessons from our actions - so just as we want some former antagonist to get theirs... we can be receiving OURS as well), commitments (those we have made, want to make, were made to us), boundaries, restrictions (boundaries keep others out, restrictions hold us back - BIG difference).
This is a time to re-assess if we are keeping our word, what we desire to commit to, have we over-extended ourselves with commitments (which may be part of a personal pattern that we have to break for mind and soul health).... Are we using time well - with respect for the gift that time is? What do we need to make time for, what are we giving time to that we shouldn't be..
Saturn is about life lessons (which is truly what karma is) - what do we see that is a recurring lesson that we have been avoiding dealing with and mastering?
Remember - Retrogrades are NOT bad - they come to make us RE-Examine, when necessary re-experience, and redo things in the realm that they govern. There CAN indeed be HUGE upheaval if we ignore the lessons of the retrograde, and carry on as if all is in regular energy flow.
Want a peaceful and therefore productive Saturn Retrograde? Pay attention...specifically look at these areas of your life, and of course honor and align with the retrograding planet.
Lighting a candle to Saturn and walking away is NOT aligning nor appeasing...there is no appeasing as it is not out to get you and needs to be put in check - it WILL make static for you - to catch your attention and MAKE you deal unless you align....SO a bit of candle magic where you honor Saturn in its retrograde phase and commit to being open to its lessons and aligning with this energy - and asking that the lessons please come smoothly and stress free... THAT will help.
