On April 29, 2019, Saturn will go retrograde in the sign of Capricorn until September 18, 2019. Under this energy, Saturn is going to do a check-in and ensure that we have been learning our lessons, taking responsibility for our actions, and living up to the fullest of our potential.
Saturn Retrograde is also going to be preparing us for the big cosmic alignment that is happening in January 2020.
Saturn is known for carrying the energy of discipline, groundedness, hard work, and law and order. Saturn is like the strict teacher that pushes us because it knows that by doing so, it can bring out the best in us.
Saturn loves being in Capricorn, and under the energy of this 2019 retrograde, it wants us to go over the past and ensure that we have learned all that we need to.
Think back to what has happened in your life since September 2018. This timeframe is pivotal to this Saturn Retrograde, and will help you to understand what lessons Saturn has been trying to instill.
Since this time, we have all been guided in different ways to take responsibility, to step up, and to work hard in order to achieve the results we desire.
Now, under this retrograde energy, Saturn wants us to look over what we have created and make sure we are heading in the direction that we want to be.
Are you happy with what you have created since this time?
Saturn wants us to take full responsibility for our actions, and for our part to play in whatever stresses, strains, gifts, conflicts, achievements, and pains have emerged in our life since then.
Saturn retrograde wants us to own the current vibration of our lives, and to know that in some way, our ego, our thoughts, and our soul has had a hand in creating whatever has transpired.
Everything and everyone is here to teach us something, and very often, the hardest situations and the most difficult of people are our greatest teachers.
Saturn wants us to take a long hard look at ourselves. It wants us to stop projecting or judging others, and instead take ownership of our energy and our choices, and see how they may have contributed to the shape of our lives.
Every action we take has a consequence. Every decision we make today helps to plan our future tomorrow, and Saturn wants us to own up to this fact.
While we certainly cannot control everything that happens or comes our way, we can control how we choose to handle the situation, and how we choose to feel and react.
Saturn’s energy also reminds us that things don’t happen to us, they happen for us, and when we hold this as truth, we can see that life is always trying to teach us, guide us, and show us the way.
Look at where you are today and see how your actions led you here. Take responsibility for the good and the bad, take responsibility for your life just as it is today.
Saturn Retrograde will be helping us to bring the power back to ourselves and to stop blaming others or events for the way our life is. We will also be given the courage, and discipline to make changes where necessary.
During this retrograde period, we may also notice feelings of sluggishness and a lack of motivation. This is only because Saturn wants us to reflect on the quality of our past choices before moving ahead.
Every day we have the power to use our thoughts, our words, and our actions in a way that brings out the best in ourselves, in others, and in the world.
Not every day is going to be a successful one, but just as the Sun gets the opportunity to rise again each morning, we too get the opportunity to start again and make different choices.
We are all in this together. All of our thoughts create the world around us, and all of our actions are contributing to the quality of life on Planet Earth.
We have to take responsibility for our own energy field. We have to own up to who we are, for that is the only way we can make lasting, positive change that the whole world will feel.
Exercise for Saturn Retrograde
For this exercise, you will need a journal and a pen.
Make a list of the months from September 2018 to now.
Under each month reflect on:
- one thing that changed or a significant event that happened
- one thing that you learned
- one thing that you could have done better
- one thing you need to forgive yourself for
Take your time to go through each month. If you can’t remember any of the information, feel free to skip it and come back to it another time. Try to reflect on at least one thing for each category, even if it’s small.
As you go through the months, see if you can identify any patterns or themes emerging. This may give you a clue as to what lessons Saturn’s energy has been instilling in your life.
