May 10: Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there… 🙂
Astrological Event: Saturn Turns Retrograde
Date: May 10 @ 9:09 pm (PT) and on May 11 @ 12:09 am (ET)
What does it all mean?
- Saturn is the planet of restrictions, duty and authority.. He rules Capricorn, is connected to the 10th house:
- Capricorn is the sign of discipline… she is good at climbing the “corporate ladder” … she can be kind and generous, but also cold and distant… always a fabulous sense of humor though… 🙂 Capricorn is ruled by Saturn… the effect may be stronger or longer lasting, especially for folks who have a strong Capricorn/Saturn chart influence.
- This can be a good time to re-assess our beliefs, ethics and the values we live and work by.
- This is a time for re-flection… a good time look within, where we may gain insight and wisdom that seems to have been “missing” of late…
- Check out all those unfinished projects “hanging around” the house and office… it’s a good time to get organized… get rid of the projects and ideas that are not going to work and focus on finishing up the ones that will
- 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.
While we will all be affected slightly by this event…
Those with the following in their charts will feel the effects stronger.
- Sun in Capricorn
- Moon in Capricorn
- Ascendant in Capricorn
- Saturn in Capricorn
- Any planets or aspects to the 10th house
- To a lessor effect: Sun in Cancer: Moon in Cancer: Ascendant in Cancer
September 28 @ 10:11 pm (PT) September 29 @ 1:11 am (ET) Saturn turns direct: When a planet turns direct again, it can take a little while for the affects of the direct motion to be felt… Use the next week or so to finish up anything that has been in process, especially anything related to work/career/vocation… As the next few weeks come forward we should gradually begin to feel more focused when it comes to our reputation… New directions in the working world that have been researched during the retrograde, should take on some solid, practical and successful action forward over the next few weeks.
