Saturn goes retrograde: Recommit to self-mastery

Saturn goes retrograde on May 23, 2021

Saturn goes retrograde at 13° Aquarius 31’ today. Saturn in Aquarius has been bringing us some serious shadow Aquarius energy. Authoritarian, detached from humanity, emotions, and what’s natural, and using people’s desire for the collective good against them are all shadow Aquarius. To fully understand the lessons Saturn in Aquarius has been bringing us, think back to 2020. 

Saturn entered Aquarius on December 21, 2020 on the Winter Solstice. It conjuncted with Jupiter at 0° Aquarius for the Grand Conjunction. But we had already had a taste of Saturn in Aquarius from March 23, 2020 until July 2, 2020, when it briefly entered Aquarius but retrograded back into Capricorn until December. What happened for you in 2020? I know that my life completely fell apart. 

However, I have been working with my Saturn for years now, so I don’t fear the lessons Saturn wants to teach me. I have come to understand that Saturn is the planet that will limit you to teach you authority and mastery. You are a limitless being with limitless possibilities available to you. How can you have structure and form without limitations? You have to make choices in order to build your life. Saturn will help you understand what you really want so that you can build a life that is authentic for you and what you want. Saturn will teach you how to be your own authority, the master of your own energies. 

Aquarius, in its highest expression, is quantum, genius, out-of-the-box thinking, freedom-loving, and the humanitarian with heart who contributes their unique gifts to the collective. Saturn in Aquarius can help us build structures, systems, institutions, and lives that are in alignment with the highest good for all. BUT with the understanding that we are each contributing to the collective in our own unique and genius way, and there is no one else like you and never will be. When we weave our different stories, perspectives, talents, and skills together, that is where the magic happens and we will be able to come up with the creative solutions that are so needed right now to move forward in right relationship to Life.

Retrogrades give us a chance to redo this area of our lives. Where can we recommit to our authority and our mastery, rededicate ourselves to building lives with true meaning and purpose, for the highest good of all concerned?
