Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn April 2019

Overcoming Fears
April 29 2019 until Sep 18 2019

When Saturn goes retrograde it is a good time to revisit our relationship, work on long term goals, responsibilities and duties and a time to restructure the way we manifest our reality, and find a new attitude towards the obstacles we face.

Because Saturn is considered our astrological father, it makes sense that Saturn rules responsibility, structure and maturity. This is a good time for all signs to look at neglected areas of life. Maybe for you it’s finances, emotional vulnerability, fitness, health or relationships. We all need healing in different areas of our lives.

Saturn is the Lord of Karma. Retrograde motion is a time when karma is sorted out. Therefore, Saturn retrograde is a double dose of karma. Karma is a form of energy that is very real. Like Saturn, it is very closely bound to time.

Saturn retrograde in transit is a regular cycle occurring just over every twelve months, lasting about 4½ months, and spanning 6 or 7 degrees of the zodiac. Transiting Saturn retrograde can be a time of limitation, restriction, anxiety and fear. 

Saturn retrograde means that whatever area of responsibility you have been developing is more important and extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. You may be tested to make sure you are ready to take on the extra responsibility. The lessons you learn might be hard but they will be valuable. On the other hand, it could be that a negative Saturn behaviors such as sadness or shyness have been getting out of control. In this case, the Saturn retrograde months will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem.

Procrastination, a very popular and often damaging coping mechanism, stems almost entirely from fear: fear of failure or fear of the unknown, fear of being wrong, being judged or getting hurt. If you notice that procrastination is a serious theme in your life, this retrograde is the time to address it.
