Saturn Moving Direct Now

by Sam Geppi June 02, 2010 06:52 PM EST

When a planet is retrograde it appears to be moving backwards in the sky. This happens due to the speed of its orbit in relationship to the speed of the Earth's orbit. Due to the speed of Saturn, he appears to move backwards close to half of the time. In truth, one of the reasons why Saturn areas of life seem to feel stuck a lot of time is because of this retrograde motion.

Saturn is the planet that rules our long-term plans and our determined efforts through time that makes things fructify. Saturn is related to obstacles and difficulties and it is these things that tempt us to give up our plans and try something new and easier. Yet, it is also the force of our comittments over time that makes anything of long-term value and meaning come to pass. This process, and the treasure it yields, is read by Saturn.

Currently, Saturn is moving through Sidereal Virgo, the sign of organizing and managing the many details and putting them in their proper place. After his transit through Virgo, from November 2006 until September 2009, we are left with many details to sort through and reorganize. The aforementioned transit through Leo shook up power structures both personally and globally.

There are so many issues that need personal and political attention right now. In fact, it seems overwhelming. This is one of the big lessons of Saturn in Virgo is to not be overwhelmed by the details, yet we must manage them effectively. Most recently we have been devastated by this oil catastrophe in the Gulf. Learning to manage our systems more effectively and account for the consequences of our actions is a large part of this Saturn in Virgo transit.

A Few Action Steps:
1. Pay attention to any courses of action that you have been pondering and that now seem obvious, trust it.
2. Be careful changing course too suddenly, especially if you had not pondered a new course recently.
3. Recommit to things of enduring value - health, spiritual practices, etc.
4. Clean up your house and environment.
5. More meaningful social interaction.
