Saturn turns retrograde in Scorpio at 11 degrees on February 18th. The planet supported by a trine from Scorpio ruler, Mars in Pisces which seems a good omen. It’s also catches support from Scorpio’s modern ruler, Pluto in Capricorn, via both aspect and mutual reception, while it takes no hits at all, so I’m voting thumbs up on this.
Many astrologers will tell you that when Saturn goes retrograde, it’s difficult to progress. I don’t see that way. When you’re doing something hard, it makes sense you might hit some kind of plateau, where it is wise that you stop and regroup.
Just equate this to mountain climbing. You plot a course as best you can. It’s possible you get halfway up the peak and find out your plan is panning out. If this is the case, stop and take a rest before you push ahead.
You may also get halfway up and run into an impediment you did not anticipate. If this happens, it may require you backtrack some, in order to come up another way that gets you around the block.
You can see how it’s possible to go backwards but still be climbing. If you lose any ground at all during this period, figure it’s in your best interest longer term.
