A Guide To Preparing For The Saturn Retrograde

Starting from the 23rd of May through to the 10th of October, the retrograde will bring about the time for reflection and change! So what do we need to do to keep our strict dad planet happy this retrograde?

Saturn is known as the daddy zodiac because it focuses on self-discipline, restriction, and authority, and outside of retrograde, it helps keep you on the right track. But once on the right track, it’s time to be wary and make responsible decisions!

It’s like leaving the nest and having to make the best decisions for yourself without any parental supervision. And it comes at a crucial time when we’re just about to be reintegrated into society after a year in isolation.

Take a break

As much as Saturn loves our productivity, it recognizes that we sometimes need a break. It’s completely okay to take a break when you need one whenever you need one.

During the retrograde, Saturn will square with Uranus, the planet of expansion. During this time, take some downtime and connect with yourself too. Take some time to meditate and catch up on the much-needed rest!

Set boundaries


You might want to go ahead and face all the challenges head-on, but now is the time to pick your battles wisely! The emotional and physical boundaries being lifted after the vaccines don’t make your personal boundaries invalid.

Set boundaries when it comes to both your emotional and physical wellbeing. And don’t forget to tell others about your boundaries, so they know when they’re crossing one, don’t be afraid to let people know where you stand!

Step outside the box

We’ve been fighting for change and winning against the will of those who don’t want to see us succeed. We need to break away from the path society has chosen for us and build a better world for future generations.

It’s time for change.


Whether it’s your job, home, or even your die,t it’s time for some change! Sometimes we hold onto goals that no longer fit our current path, but it’s time to let them go and re-evaluate them.

Take this time to think about what you really want and what is important so that you can make it the center of your focus. Don’t be sad to let things go; change is good for you. Accept it for better things are coming!

Believe in yourself


Spend some time focusing on yourself and the areas you need improvement in, especially when believing in yourself. You’re more capable than you think, have a little faith in yourself! With the right boundaries, you’ll be set when Saturn goes direct in October!
