Saturn is in Retrograde from June 17th-November 4th 2023

Firstly what is a retrograde? 

A retrograde is when a planet appears to turn backward in the sky. This happens due to an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit. 

All the major planets (excluding the luminaries – the sun and the moon) go retrograde from time to time.

When planets go retrograde the impact of the planet changes and the type of activities that are recommended change too.

What is a Saturn Retrograde all about?

Saturn is the planet of responsibility, restriction, discipline and structure and is ruled by the sign of Capricorn – the slow and steady mountain goat and the master and the 10th house of Career and Public Recognition.

Saturn is often considered to represent our life’s work or the area of our life where we will have to work hard, be disciplined and responsible. Saturn is also considered father time and can represent Karma in our lives.

So when Saturn goes retrograde this is like a double dose of Karma in our lives and whether it is good karma or bad karma will depend on how responsible we have been in our lives so far.

During a Saturn Retrograde, we may feel limitation, restriction, anxiety, and fear.

A Saturn retrograde will ask us to get our lives in order, take responsibility, and to grow up. It really makes me think about getting our business systems and structures in order.

By the time Saturn turns direct we will be ready to move forward, be focused and productive, and chase success and recognition out in the world once again.

What might the position of Saturn’s Retrograde in 2023 mean for you?

Where do you need to be more responsible? Your finances? Your home? Your Work? Your Health?

For me, it is in my 6th House of Day to day routine.

During Saturn Retrograde I’ll be enrolling my next cohort for the Level 1 business astrology certification, writing my Level 2 advanced courses, and writing my book as well as working on changes to my oracle deck for publication with a major publishing house! To achieve all of this I’ll need to be responsible with my day-to-day health and routine to ensure that I stay well and organized to achieve my goals. I’ve cut back on alcohol after an extended alcohol-free period, and I’ve hired an online business manager to help free up my time to work on these projects. We are also formalizing a lot of the business structures, policies, and procedures to position us for growth.
