Saturn turned direct this morning at 4:47 AM EDT, having backed up from 20˚ to 13˚ Capricorn since late April.
Saturn is at home in Capricorn and is as content as the dour one ever gets. He has been asking us to review issues of responsibility, authority, commitment, boundaries, limitations, structure, rules, respect, parents, aging, and death.
The house that contains Capricorn in your chart is where you have most felt this retrograde period. You may have experienced blockage or limitation, a feeling of being stuck in some area of your life. A renewed sense of moving forward should be apparent as Saturn begins to pick up speed.
Saturn will cover the same territory over which he backtracked, reaching 20˚ Capricorn at the Winter Solstice. Then, at the darkest part of the year, Saturn will move into a conjunction with Pluto.
Hang on to your hats. This winter may be a doozy. We’ve been warned. More on that later.
The waning Moon ambles on through Taurus. This morning she trines stationary Saturn, smoothly bringing our emotional attention to 13˚ Capricorn. If you have planets or angles around 11-15˚ of Capricorn, you may be feeling Saturn more than most.
This afternoon the Moon receives compassionate support from Neptune, providing a balm to the weary.
Then the Moon moves through an evening Earth Grand Trine with Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. You may find you are finally able to take powerful action to stabilize the situation that Saturn has brought to your attention.
