Saturn Retrograde
Rebuilding Your Personal Foundations

by Rebecca Brents

Delays ... get worse

Saturn is notorious for signifying delays, and because under stress it also symbolizes limitation, restriction, and loss, many followers of astrology consider it their least favorite planet. But I think it gets a bad rap and lots of blame it really doesn't deserve.

Sure, Saturn makes you work hard for everything it offers. When it is involved, nothing just falls into your lap ... as can happen when benevolent Jupiter is distributing treasures. But personally I would point to Pluto as the worst of the troublemakers -- and if you want to look at that article, I will tell you some of the reasons why.

Reworking your image

For the moment, however, we are focused on Saturn retrograding as it backs up and journeys over ground already traveled. Those of you who know where this area falls in your personal charts can see the issues of life where the restructuring of established foundations is beginning to emerge.

Saturn represents your capacity to define your social role -- "what you want to be when you grow up" -- your public reputation, your career and professional interests, your image as a person with experience and authority who deserves respect.

What Does Saturn Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Saturn depicts an Inner Self that is careful, precise, methodical and concerned with creating lasting structures in the world. It contains your self-discipline, your sense of responsibility and your ways of relating to authority.

Jupiter Retrograde -- Expanding Your Latest Creation ---> Jupiter's interests -- upiter represents your philosophical beliefs and ethical principles. It describes your ability to share authoritative knowledge ... the wisdom you've gained both through academic study and through the simple experience of living.

Retrograde Motion -- What's this all about? ---> All the planets astrologers use to decode the spiritual language of the cosmos exhibit a phenomenon known as retrograde motion. Very simply, there are times from Earth's perspective when each of the planets seems to back up in its orbit, to actually reverse course for a time, before eventually going forward again.

This Thing Called Retrograde Motion -- What it means in plain English ---> What is this thing called retrograde motion? Wherever it's found, in the sky or in a horoscope, retrograde energy means the matters represented by the retrograde planet become more subjective as people re-think, re-consider, re-evaluate and re-build.

Working with the Metaphors of Retrograde Energy ---> When a planet goes into retrograde -- or comes out again, it doesn't just stop on a dime and start racing at its usual speed in the opposite direction. It seems (from the vantage point of Earth) to slow down gradually as it approaches the point of reversal -- the way you slow down in the car before coming to a stop -- or making a turn ... and certainly before making a U-Turn.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.

Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ... -- Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
You want to be recognized for your brilliant ideas ... so you're in the mood to search through "all the things you know" to come up with interesting tidbits and creative combinations to use. Realizing that "presentation is everything" you'll also showcase your offerings nicely as you put them on display for others to applaud. This is not actually as self-serving as it sounds.

Doing this will prompt others to share ideas with you ... and you'll gather new ammunition for the next time this mood strikes. On second thought, maybe this strategy is as self-serving as it sounds. But it's educational, too. For everybody.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Leo Sextile Jupiter in Libra on Tue 30th of May 2017 at 4:56 am MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Wed 31st of May 2017 at 5:15 am MDT until it enters Virgo on Wed 31st of May 2017 at 10:16 am MDT
