Today, 1st July 2020, Saturn goes retrograde in Capricorn, the zodiac sign that it rules. In pragmatic astrology, Saturn teaches us about consolidation, about grounding our dreams and visions and applying self discipline. It is all to do with the Establishment, societal governance, rules and regulations, administration and discipline.
Saturn is a very testing energy which influences us all through painful experiences – it is the Lord of Karma. With this energy we learn about responsibility, commitment and realism, accepting our own limitations and that of the world around us with grace and wisdom in the process. If we understand the irony of this planet then we can work with it, connecting with the reality of situations and then working with it by learning our lessons and finding solutions to our problems.
With the Earth sign Capricorn, known as ‘The Rock of the Zodiac‘, symbolised by the Goat Climbing the Mountain, slowly but surely to success, it’s important to appreciate that this dynamic is completely about the long haul or “long breath” as I describe it. Capricorn is in it for the long term – there are no short cuts with this energy – what you sow is what you reap and you would be foolish to think otherwise! And if something is worth doing, then it’s worth doing well – to the very best of your ability.
Saturn Goes Retrograde in Capricorn! This energy recognises the need for sustained effort, self-sufficiency, hard work and dutifulness and the influence of Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn will allow us to question exactly what is blocking our progress along the steep path to success and what we need to put in place to rectify that.
With Saturn in Retrograde it gives all of us time to reflect and think about what we need to do to secure our future and to overcome any obstacles out there. Use this time wisely so that you may put your plans into action when Saturn goes Direct in Capricorn on 29th September 2020 before it prepares for its next major Conjunction (united) with Jupiter in Aquarius on 21st December 2020.
With Love, Light and Steadfastness, Stevie xxx
