Pluto is retrograde until October 8. Its shadow period remains until January 30, 2023. The degrees traveled in August (27°04'–26°27' Capricorn) are represented in the Sabian symbols by the following images: “a large aviary” and “pilgrims climbing the steep steps leading to a mountain shrine.” In these end times, when many are seeking selfish, easy pleasures and immediate satisfactions, only hard inner work, true spiritual discipline, and clear mental focus can lead us to enlightenment.
Saturn remains retrograde until October 22. Its shadow period extends until January 27, 2023. The degrees traveled in August (22°55'–20°42' Aquarius) are represented in the Sabian symbols by the following images: “a big bear sitting down and waving all its paws,” “a rug is placed on the floor of a nursery to allow children to play in comfort and warmth,” and “a disappointed and disillusioned woman courageously faces a seemingly empty life.” Gratitude has a frequency even higher than love. The more we honor the situations we find ourselves in without trying to escape but by making the best of it, the closer we come to true spiritual realization
