Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 29
Saturn stations and turns direct today after retrograde motion since May 11th. This change in direction comes as a reminder to take care of our obligations and bring our goals down to earth. With Saturn’s direct turn, our responsibilities, and perhaps our limitations, are magnified. Gradually, our long-term goals and plans become more apparent. We become more aware of rules, limits, and boundaries in our lives.
Mars forms a square to Saturn today, and this already tense aspect can feel heavier than usual due to Saturn’s station. This aspect first formed on August 24th and is now returning due to Mars’ retrograde motion. Nevertheless, since it’s been in orb, this influence has been hanging over us since August. We may be feeling blocked from asserting ourselves or pursuing our desires. This is a time to slow down and make adjustments and edits, as we may encounter resistance if we push ahead. It can seem like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks if we lack motivation. Disapproval or a dip in confidence can figure strongly. We must draw on patience and develop our endurance, and it’s a better time for maintenance than it is for moving forward. A good strategy now is to recognize some of our limits and adjust our speed accordingly.
Also today, a Sun-Chiron opposition can have us confronting our insecurities and vulnerabilities through our relationships and interactions. Lack of faith in our own decisions is possible. However, this is also a time to recognize something important about ourselves. Again, we have something to learn from our reactions and sensitivities.
The Moon is in Pisces all day.
