There are a couple bigger things happening in the sky today, this week has been chock full of astrological happenings! Saturn makes his yearly turn for his retrograde motion this morning. Do not fret though, keep reading and you will understand what to do and how to best handle it!
Saturn goes retrograde at 6:01 AM this morning. He is not the trickster that Mercury is, and I know we all know about Mercury Retrograde! Saturn is different though, not only is his retrograde phase once a year, he is retrograde for months. This particular cycle of retrograde lasts until August. When Mercury retrogrades he does it in smaller 3 week cycles and you hear a lot about it because he rules over our nervous system, computers, clear thinking and our minds. Saturn on the other hand is the teacher, lessons, our structure, boundaries and reminds me of the quiet but influential boss in a company. Saturn retrograde need not be feared (or any other retrograde for that matter) if you know how to deal with him properly.
In a way Saturn really is the boss of our lives, and if he isn't then you might notice a bit of a struggle within yourself as he transitions in this cycle of retrograde. You can decipher where that struggle might be by seeing what house Saturn is transiting in your chart. This is a good reason for you to get an astrological consultation with one of us, to help you through this period of time.
What Saturn does during this time is give the opportunity for going back over our long term commitments and responsibilities that we have taken on. This really needs to be looked at before we continue. We get the opportunity to reorganize and renegotiate the commitments we are already in and seem to cause us frustrations. Saturn retrograde gives us an opportunity to see those commitments that are not really right for us and finally say “no” to them. Saturn also gives us a chance to solidify the commitments and responsibilities that we have undertaken in the past.
Saturn retrograde is an excellent time to begin eating healthier or taking some inventory of what is working for you - what isn't. Then taking some appropriate action in those results. So prepare yourself for this coming turning of Saturn by and what needs some adjustment in your life. Just remember we are all a beautiful work in progress, so work on your masterpiece – YOU!
The next aspect for today is when Venus in Pisces comes to an opposition with Jupiter in Virgo at 7:58 AM. This is a really good energy for us to remember to be practical in dealing with the things and or people that we love. Try not to put those people up on the pedestal and remember that we are all just humans, even the ones that are truly important to us. This aspect has been hitting us since yesterday and will continue throughout the whole day today.
Venus in Pisces then comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 12:48 PM today. Venus governs over our attraction to love and Saturn is the wise old man of the planets. When these two connect in a square pattern we feel a surge of energy towards our relationships and want to bring an element of truth to them. Since Saturn is recently retrograde, these are likely already established relationships.
Finally! Our moon comes out of his void-of-course phase at 2 PM and ingresses into the sign of Scorpio. Well I said finally, but who loves the Scorpio moon? Just sort of teasing there, I actually love all the energies we are handed, the trick is just how to utilize them the best! Scorpio moon is intense, direct and passionate. The thing with Scorpio moon is that not only do we feel the intense joy and passion, we also feel the betrayal and jealousy emotions as well! Some good advise for this transiting Scorpio moon is to understand that these passionate energies are here and that its really only a space in time that it is in and learn to work with them instead of pushing against the grain.
The gemstone suggested for today is Tigers Eye, it will help bring balance and stability to your life and keep you grounded during the Saturn station.
The essential oil suggestion for today is Cypress. This oil helps us to balance and regain our strength and power, especially for those of us going through a difficult time.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
