Astrological phase, Saturn retrograde 2022 starts on 5th June and ends by 23rd October 2022.
What exactly Saturn retrograde is?
An apparent movement of Saturn moving backword due to the way, Saturn and Earth, orbit the Sun. Saturn in reality is not moving backward.
How it can affect us ?
In astrology, Saturn is a planet of karma.
I personally believe that Saturn is a planet which wants to reward us with Discipline, Orderliness, Structure, Patience and Career success.
Problems come when we don’t want to be disciplined and patient enough to handle situations.
We resist the blessings of Saturn by our own limiting beliefs, by not accepting the change, by not surrendering the unnecessary control over matters.
During its transit of 2.5 years, Saturn takes around 2-3 retrograde journies, in which instead of supplying the blessings, it starts preparing you to receive the blessings of Saturn in a better way. It starts preparing you by changing the scenarios and circumstances of your life. Saturn is a planet which rules self discipline, therefore demands self discipline within us.
Saturn retrograde makes all of us introspect the section of life where its transiting. e.g Marriage life, Job, Health, Court cases and Finances etc. During Saturn retrograde, we will be experiencing things moving slow, whether they are ongoing issues or matters, in general. The transit also infuses fear for future and material security.
Calmness and patience is the key. Rome was not built in one day, but they were laying bricks every hour. The transit prapares you to get rewards from Saturn itself during its direct movement (25th Oct 2022 onwards).
Saturn is the planet which also rules our Career, Social status and public image. It asks us to re-evaluate or re-consider the events which are happening in our life.
