Saturn will turn retrograde on April 5th, 2017, at 27 degrees Sagittarius. I think this transit will be rough on people with planets in the late degrees of the Mutable signs. I do have some things that should help.
First, here’s a list of dates and degrees for Saturn’s position in 2017. Sagittarius is concerned with perspective, motion, the story, and moving ahead. If you find yourself in some kind of depression, this list can serve as a weather report. You can see there are breaks in clouds at various times, as well as end to this cycle.
Secondly, I’ve outlined tips on working well with Saturn in retrograde, in general here:
This is a fact of life – sometimes you have to retreat in order to progress. People who understand this have a lot easier time dealing with setbacks which may actually be “supposed” setbacks!
If you get in trouble, I do have a workshop on this topic: Saturn In Sagittarius – A Real Education. It will help.
You can also check the tag – Saturn In Sagittarius. You may find the piece you need.
If you’re truly stuck or in horrible pain, I am sure I can help – consults.
But I’m telling you, how you frame (Saturn) your story (Sagittarius) is of utmost importance. And specific to the retrograde period, I’ll leave with something an eighty-year-old man told me the other day. He’s a builder…
He said in regards to fixing things (our country, your life, or whatever), there was no use trying to build on a rotted foundation, a crooked foundation, or any base that was not stable. If you do this, your structure will not stand over time. His opinion is inarguable.
If you have been making this mistake; building your tower on some pile of crap, clearly, you’re going to have to go back and start over. It’s worth it!
Can what you believe stand the test of time?
If not, you have some work to do and luckily (Sagittarius), you have the time (Saturn) to do it.
What do you hope to accomplish while Saturn is retrograde?
