Slow Down and Ask Deeper Questions
Saturn remains in Capricorn for all of August until December 16. This is the last period of Saturn being in its own sign. On December 17, Saturn will reenter Aquarius and remain there until March 8, 2023. These next few months complete a two-year cycle that requires us to be very clear about the structures in our lives, reexamine our relationship to authority, and anchor ourselves in our own centers with personal responsibility and inner maturity.
There are still five retrograde planets out of ten this month: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Many situations could revert to previous conditions. We are required to slow down, go within, and ask ourselves deeper questions.
Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month (20º08’ to 17º41’ Capricorn) until September 13. Its shadow period extends until December 6. The degrees traveled in August are represented in the Sabian symbols by “a relay race,” “a hidden choir is singing during a religious service,” “a five-year-old child carrying a bag filled with groceries,” and “the Union Jack flag flies from a British warship.” As we continue to expand our spiritual gifts, deepen our integrity, use our resources generously, and collaborate with others in ways that create winning situations for all, success abounds.
