Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio where it will stay until September 17.
Under the influence of Saturn in Scorpio, your willpower and endurance are legendary. Once you commit to a goal, you have the drive and persistence to see it through to the end. You might even be considered obsessive, tenaciously pursuing your passion to the point of neglecting other areas of life.
Deep intimacy becomes a higher priority, and if you’re willing to do the work, committed partnership can be extremely rewarding. The biggest challenge: To be willing to reveal your true feelings and let your vulnerability be seen by your partner.
As you work to uncover your authentic self, you’re likely to get in touch with your core issues and deep-seated fears. If you’re courageous enough to explore your dark side, you have the potential to free yourself from old emotional patterns that hold you back.
Watch out for a tendency to control people you’re closest to. Motivated by fear, you’ll want to hold on tightly to what you have – in your relationships, finances and possessions.
A big lesson during this transit will be letting go – trusting in the deeper life process of death and rebirth, and letting go of what’s stagnant to create space for new growth.
