Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius April 2017 - 4/5/2017 5:00:00 PM ~ Learning Lessons
Saturn stations retrograde on 6 April 2017 at 27°47′ Sagittarius. The retrograde phase of Saturn and its effects depends on the position of Saturn in your birth chart. If the placement of Saturn is not favorable then it may bring delays and difficulties in your life and personal relationships. Bad transits to Saturn during this time may make things worse, so it is important to look more into the areas those transits affect in order to not let any relationship issues get out of hand. Saturn has always been regarded in a negative light in classic astrology and has been known to be the lord of Karma. However, in more reccent times we regard Saturn in a more positive way, where the more work and effort we put in to ourselves, our work and our loved ones, the more likely we can avoid any harsh negative karma that we may have accumulated in the past.
Saturn entered the retrograde zone on 30 December 2016 at 21°10′ Sagittarius. This first shadow phase lasts until Saturn retrograde on April 6. During this time you may find some tests and challenges that relate to work and career, as well as your current financial situation. Saturn will turn retrograde whilst there is a Venus Square to Saturn which will add problems to do with finance and relationships that are already rocky will need extra work to maintain during this period. You may feel like avoiding any problems with your love life but it is important to try and maintain healthy communication so that you dont end up causing more problems.
It is common under this influence to feel lonely and depressed. Money can also be tight so avoid a tendency toward wasting money and other resources. Hard work is needed to maintain your present relationship, career or other valued part of life. Some will be burdened by guilt, while victims will feel the pain of very old wounds. Initial healing of the extreme sadness and misfortune should have begun during Saturn retrograde. Sun trine Moon together with Mars trine Pluto would have started the healing process.
