It’s time to get out of that retrograde slug! We’ve had so many planets retrograde this Summer. So if you have been feeling like this just hasn’t been the best Summer of your life, don’t freak out. You are not alone. As August winds down, the planets are waking up and beckoning you to take some action.

Retrogrades are all about the internal processes we undergo to figure out what is next in our life. Mercury went direct at the beginning of August, and we are now seeing forward motion in communication areas. Jupiter went direct on August 11, and we are finding more opportunities to expand and find fortune. This week, on September 18, serious and stern Saturn is turning direct and it’s responsibility time. Every zodiac sign has a different lesson to learn, and these Saturn direct horoscopes for each zodiac sign present a different karmic lesson.

What is Saturn Direct?

When a planet is retrograde, it appears to be moving slower in a backward direction. The point of every retrograde period with every planet is that the planet is not moving forward, and thus the themes of that planet in that sign and in your specific chart are not moving forward either. Saturn retrograde from April to September 2019 is a very karmic period, as Saturn is a planet of karma and time. There’s been a lot of “hurry up and wait” for many during this period. That “hurry up and wait” has been immediately connected to your karmic path.

With stern Saturn’s karmic time in play, you’ve been dealing with past, present, and future matters all at the same time. Lessons have been learned, and some of them have been very difficult. It’s time to clean up some of the things that you’ve swept under the rug. Challenges will ensue once Saturn goes direct, but if your karmic path has been responsible, then you are going to see some rewards. Saturn direct is nothing to fear.

This is a time to celebrate, and when you engage your self-discipline as is Saturn’s call, the rewards will be mighty. Saturn is turning direct in Capricorn, the zodiac sign that it rules.
