Saturn Retrograde 2013
Saturn is the Planet of Karma, delivering slow Justice to each one without distinguishing between rich, poor, young or old. Saturn is “The Taskmaster.” What Saturn retrograde 2013 really does is show us the way to victory through adversity and how to build confidence by overcoming obstacles. Karma is a tricky topic to write about, because it’s kind of esoteric and hard to explain. But its basic premise is that you get what you deserve, right? So when Saturn, the planet of karma, turns retrograde, it means our personal karma comes into question. Wherever Saturn is in you chart is where you will learn the most and have the most development over the course of its transit. The affects of Saturn in the angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th houses) can garner more of a public reaction and response. With Saturn in the other houses the affects aren’t always so public.
Saturn goes retrograde on Monday, Feb. 18, and it will spin backward for the next five months. During this time we’ll be more inclined to think about who we are, what we have done, who we want to be and where we want to go. We may worry more about the things we have done and the consequences, and so we will likely be more interested in taking steps toward self-improvement.
Saturn, the Lord of Karma and the one planet that never, ever lets you off the hook. If you are doing well he rewards you, if you are trying to cut some corners, he will punish you.
Saturn retrograde 2013 is ultimate judge and jury rolled into one.
Karmically, knowing where Saturn lies in your birth chart tells you where you face your biggest hurdle in life—something you need to work on to clear your path to joy and abundance. Having your chart done will unlock a lot of mystery in your life. But also, as it travels through the 12 houses of the zodiac, Saturn teaches us lessons related to those houses—some are easier than others.
