The planet of karmic challenges, Saturn, is currently slowing to station retrograde in Sagittarius, and the squeeze is on during the last days of February and first three weeks of March.
Saturn will station at 4 degrees Sagittarius on March 14 (9:02 a.m. CST) for a retrograde period that lasts until August 2, 2015.
With Saturn stationing retrograde, we may experience increased feelings of frustration or restriction. Our forward progress, previously inspiring to us, may now feel stymied or slowed. Our responsibilities may be weighing heavily upon us, and our fears could be grinding at us a little. We may feel just plain tired and old. We may experience some setbacks, being pulled back into territory we thought we had already progressed beyond, and this can be demoralizing and depressing. The expansion we were working toward is not quite here yet.
These effects can be expected - off and on - from late February through the first three weeks of March.
The Saturn retrograde also occurs during the seventh and final exact square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn (March 16 at 8:54 p.m.). This adds to the intensity, potentially increasing the fear/anxiety/frustration/arghhhhh of the Saturn station.
