Astrology: How it affects our daily life: Saturn goes Retrograde April 2017

Astrological Event: Saturn Turns Retrograde

Date(s): April 5 (PT) April 6 (ET) 2017 to August 2017

Sign: Sagittarius

What does it all mean?

  • Saturn is the planet of restrictions, duty and authority.. He rules Capricorn, is connected to the 10th house:
  • Sagittarius is all about freedom, living, learning and loving, A fire sign ruled by the expansive planet Jupiter.
  • This can be a good time to reassess our beliefs, ethics and the rules we live by.
  • We can make changes to some of the decisions or choices we have made in key area’s of our life. Venus remains retrograde until approx April the 14th… as Saturn turns retrograde in Sagittarius, it is possible for some folks to release themselves from restrictive long-term relationships.
  • Partnerships that are not “cutting it” may be reassessed under this influence, especially ones which don’t seem to gel with our ethics, religion or belief system. We feel stronger and more purposed in these area’s, which helps us to be brave enough to make difficult choices.
  • It is a time to be truthful to ourselves, to have a good look at what it is we are willing to stand for… what does it mean when we sign our name to a petition making the social media rounds? do we truly feel strong enough to want the changes, and what, ultimately, will those changes mean and who will they affect the most?
  • This is a time for reflection, more than for making huge life changes or new commitments… having said that leaving or dissolving a long-term relationship or partnership is pretty life changing… and with Venus and Saturn being retrograde the push to make such changes is strong. While there is no complete answer, it is suggested that if a relationship or partnership isn’t making you happy, now is an excellent time to figure out why… Honesty is the best policy here, so don’t go blaming the other partner for everything that is wrong with the relationship… (it takes two to tango) 🙂
  • Folks who are well-behaved citizens, who follow the rules and have a strong positive “connection” with those in authority, could feel a little “off-kilter” under this influence, but it’s not all bad… just look at this an opportunity to “loosen” up a bit… you are unlikely to go off the rails, and it could be a good opportunity for you to learn something new.
  • Studying and learning new skills could be more challenging than usual, however the desire will be strong… just keep going with the flow and it will all come together in the end..

 

While we will all be affected slightly by this event…

Those with the following in their charts will feel the effects stronger.

  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Ascendant in Sagittarius
  • Saturn in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Ascendant in Capricorn
