For the week of June 3rd thru the 10th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Sometimes when Saturn stations retrograde, as it does this weekend, we can feel the bubbles popping. You had all these hopes and dreams, and with Saturn station, these are almost, but not quite, fading. A recent confrontation with reality was making you all too aware of what is here to stay, and what is already in the process of moving on, and it can no longer be denied. We may have had some wistful hopes for the future. But right now, you are needing to focus on what is right in front of you without any sense of denial. But also know that there isn’t really very much that will deter Aries right now. That there isn’t anything that you cannot handle. Not with Mars and Jupiter gallivanting in your sign. Even hard truths, setbacks or delays will not hinder you with these two at your side. This is still pro-active weather for Aries, filled with audacious courage and initiative. Focus on what you CAN do. Then once you find the right channel to focus all that drive, it is bound to be brought to a successful conclusion.
Mercury is finally stationing direct, and it is doing so in your sign. It’s like a green light telling you to move forward with your goals. But which goals? Your ruling planet Venus is conjunct Uranus this week, which for the past 4 years has been encouraging you to live your most authentic life. And as Saturn stations retrograde this week as well, it is asking you to reevaluate some of the roles you have taken on, and make sure which of these are most in alignment with the persona you have recently been cultivating. You will find yourself being cautious about taking on any additional obligations. And this might be wise. For starting new things with a retrograde Saturn could prove to be more involved than previously anticipated. Or even worse, make you feel trapped or limited in some way. Are you willing to give up any new freedoms that you have been working so assiduously to cultivate? And/or are you willing to compromise your new-found self for the sake of mere praise or reward? Mercury stationing direct in Taurus, is reminding you: it’s all about the priorities.
For the past few weeks, many a Gemini has been subject to the twists and turns, delays and reprisals of the Mercury retrograde phase. And as if to exacerbate things, despite an abundance of information and a barrage of distraction, you haven’t necessarily had all the facts that are needed in order to make clear plans or decisions. Therefore it is with great relief to know that Mercury is finally stationing direct again. Even if the facts are not necessarily what you may hope them to be. At least you know what you are working with. This will help you to be able to reassess where you stand and what your current priorities are. Especially in light of any changing circumstances. And especially in light of your values. Saturn stationing retrograde is a stark reminder to connect with these core values and beliefs. Even if it requires making some hard decisions. And one way to help you to do so, is to be fully informed. And then you can declare which side of the aisle you see yourself standing on, and verify for yourself, what decisions need to be made.
For Cancer especially, the activity usually picks up after the New Moon. The New Moon on May 30th, delving into the past, and plagued by a retrograde Mercury, has been a bit riddled by delays. So the momentum was not as it usually is. One of the reasons for this has been the difficulties in sussing out the facts, and separating them from all of the prevailing distractions. But now that Mercury is direct again and we are approaching the first quarter Moon, you can now finally feel the energy moving forward. But not without having to face reality, and perhaps some hard decisions. When Saturn stations retrograde, as it will this weekend, it gives us permission to be able to say No More. And that decision can be quite definitive. Now that Saturn will be retrograde for the next 4-5 months, this is a good time to explore the ways that you can take better control of your life, yourself, and your psyche. And that begins with what you need to divest yourself of in order to be emotionally and psychologically free to pursue your own best life. Where are you needing to set limits, and where do you need to say No More?
If these have not already been established, this could be a good time to more clearly define your mutual expectations within your closest relationships. This would be especially so in light of any changes that may have recently occurred. Saturn is in the sign of Aquarius, and it is especially when Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius that any boundary issues, or unclear agreements will become problematic. Especially in light of Mercury stationing direct this week as well. Knowing precisely what your mutual boundaries are, will make it easier for you to make plans for the future as well as honoring agreements being made. Armed with any new information now being disclosed, you will have a greater understanding of what sorts of resources you are going to need going forward. One advantage that Leo has right now, is that Mars and Jupiter are in your fellow fire sign Aries, bestowing you with gads of courage, initiative and a positive outlook, that allows you to achieve your goals, no matter what else is going on.
Now that Mercury is going to be direct again, you are feeling ready to launch yourself out into the world once again. With all the problems going on in the world and needing to be solved, the last thing you need is to feel out of gas, all run down and depleted. You have people to see, and things to do. But it is also important to be in touch with your limitations. And that is what happens when Saturn stations retrograde. And this will be especially true if you have not been paying attention to the boundaries and limitations of both your body and mind. Saturn stationing in Aquarius is going to let you know. If you are thoroughly exhausted, it’s a good sign that you probably need to pay more attention to your physical, mental and psychological needs. Know that over the next 4 months, Saturn will keep on reminding you if you forget. It may be as simple as getting enough sleep, paying attention to your diet, or making that extra time for some therapeutic R&R. And only then, if you are mindful of your limitations, can you proceed with your plans to go out and save the world.
Mercury is thankfully moving direct once again, but not without bringing some of its baggage up from the retrograde underworld. As a result, some things that you had thought safely sorted out and put to bed, has been continuing to raise its demonic head. But now that Mercury is direct again, perhaps you can put some of those old wraiths and demons to rest once and for all. Even if it requires some hard decisions in order to do so. One thing that may become apparent, is that we may not be able to do all that we want to do at this time. And if you have already been sacrificing your own pleasures, or been limiting yourself overly much, this could be really frustrating. Mercury direct is making it all too evident what your true priorities need to be right now. But be clear with yourself about what you are or are not willing to do in order to fulfill those priorities. If they are proving to be really difficult, also consider what you might need to change in your perspective that will make it easier for you to deal with your current circumstances. And consequently be able to look forward with greater acceptance and understanding.
Now that Mercury is stationing direct again, it could feel as if the dust is settling a bit. But not without the feeling of needing to make some hard decisions, which could include clarifying some agreements with others. One thing that could become apparent however, now that Saturn is also stationing retrograde, are the ways that you may have been ignoring some of the more personal areas of your life. Use the 5 month retrograde phase of Saturn to shore up the foundations of your life: your home, your family life, your psychological and emotional well-being. That may be as simple as making repairs around the house, mending family relationships or readdressing your current support systems. But it may be even more than that. Know that anything that has been ignored will make itself known during the Saturn retrograde phase. And they can not or will not be ignored. Once you get these areas of your life settled, then you can more fully focus on the other obligations and promises you may wish to make.
Now that Mercury is finally going direct again, it can help to resolve any issues that you have been having either with your health, or perhaps with a situation in your work. Or both. There may be some hard truths that are needing to face, including what to do about certain limitations being imposed on you. You might want to ask yourself whether or not there is something you can do about your current limitations. And if so, are you willing to make the sacrifices that are being asked of you, in order for these changes to be made? It may be for some, that when you explore your possibilities that you might decide to do nothing and stick with what you have. But if that is the case, you might want to ask yourself how your choices are being influenced by fear and anxiety. Make sure you have all the facts first. Get advice from the experts. Saturn is also stationing retrograde. Therefore it is especially important to be as reality centered as possible. Saturn wants you to grow in some way. Being realistic and seeing things exactly as they are helps us to make more grown up decisions going forward.
As Saturn stations retrograde in Aquarius this weekend, it can sometimes happen that financial or business agreements with others can be put on hold at the last minute. People back out. Someone gets cold feet or has a second heart. Whether this is true or not, Capricorn will be thrown back on their priorities this week, looking for better and more reliable ways to build equity and security. And if this requires cutting back, spending less, or simplifying your financial situation then so be it. This is about sustainability, and building for the future. Saturn wants you to grow. Mercury is also stationing direct on Friday, and in the process things could come to light that compel you to look at things more realistically. This combination is about being objective about whatever sacrifices are necessary in order to achieve that sustainability. But first you need to have all the facts and numbers. This will allow you to have all the information that you need in order to create a viable plan for the future. A plan that is manageable and feasible, and will allow you to bring yourself to a whole new level.
This weekend, your ruling planet Saturn is stationing retrograde in your sign. And as it does so it will be reminding you of exactly what your current limitations and boundaries are. This will be in the context and awareness of what is also going on in your personal life. Especially in the home environment. This is because, even as Saturn is stationing retrograde and asking you to pull back, and cut back; Mercury is stationing direct and moving forward with certain changes in your personal life. These changes may involve someone moving in or out of the home; or changing your personal space in some way. You would also like to make improvements. But could also feel limited in your ability to fully do so. Honor these limitations. If you cannot move that desk across the room, or paint that wall yourself, focus on the things that you CAN do. And the things that are most important. You do want to make these improvements in your personal life. But not at your personal expense. Or at the expense of a personal vision. That new vision is trying to take root, and you will want to do all you can to bring it to fruition.
Sometimes in order to be able to move forward, you first need to be able to let go. The upcoming 4-month retrograde period of Saturn is all about releasing things from the previous phase of your life. You are needing to do so in order to allow the next phase of your life to gain some sort of purchase. The field needs to be cleared. The old weeds need to be pulled up from their beds, the soil needs to be cultivated in order to support new growth. It may be that you have outgrown some previous expectations, goals and roles that you previously played. In order to fulfill your purpose and be more effective, you may be asked to release those things that are no longer supportive and might actually be preventing you from evolving. When Saturn stations retrograde as it will this weekend it gives us permission to be able to say No More. And as Saturn moves back into the earlier degrees of Aquarius over the next 5 months will only bring even more confirmation. Know that Mercury is turning its face towards a future that holds greater fulfillment, if we are but willing to make the decisions that are necessary.
