Saturn stations retrograde at 13° Aquarius. This slowing down energy is coming in the midst of building towards a hyperactive sensitive and agitated lunar eclipse. It’s sounds contradictory but here’s how it works.
If the eclipses are caffeinated in nature and you’re feeling up in the air, nervous and excitable then the Saturn station will draw out that feeling in a slow motion kind of anxiety for the next few days. It’s like being in suspended animation. You know that feeling of being in a dream when there’s a sense of paralysis and you can’t move? It has that type of feel. Saturn slows things down and makes you take a long, hard and sober look at your reality and how you structure and organize life. This combination has a type of bi-polar feel to it for the week ahead.
This retrograde lasts through October 10. When Saturn entered Aquarius in March of 2020 the pandemic struck full force and we all had to limit our freedom and adapt to a new type of restriction called “social distancing”. Now as Jupiter enters Pisces and restrictions are quickly being lifted the retrograde of Saturn asks us to remember the forced restrictions placed on us in 2020 and to now review how we will restructure a new society and social interaction. In many ways we are going back to our old way of life but with a new and more cautious outlook. Aquarius embraces the progressive future and Saturn requires that it be brought down to earth in a more practical form in the present.
You may be feeling awkward and lonely as you figure out how to acclimate to a new social climate. It’s that feeling of having been out of the dating game for years and then all of a sudden because of the death or divorce from a partner you have to reacquaint yourself with getting back into the dating game and all the protocol, social effort, networking and planning that requires.
Saturn in Aquarius will continue to force a review of friendships. How are you reconnecting with your peer group and what changes need to be made? You may divorce yourself from certain friends as a result of insights made over the past year. For many we are going back to old social routines and we have months to review whether old friends remain or leave.
Rework the infrastructure of your life. And don’t be too harsh on yourself if in the next few days you feel alone, distanced or isolated. Try to use the time wisely for some introspection rather then a depressive spiraling down.
Remember that Saturn asks you to face your fears otherwise they become your limitations.
