As big-daddy Saturn prepares for his final five-month retrograde stint in the sign of Libra, get ready for the stakes to get raised in your relationships. Libra rules justice, partnerships and social contracts. It’s the sign constantly striving to achieve reciprocity, equanimity and balance in getting along with others.
Saturn does his best work in Libra, which rules the Seventh House of partnerships. Saturn entered the sign of the Scales two years ago, and this is the last retrograde phase in Libra before Saturn moves into Scorpio in October. What does this mean for you and your relationships? Expect trials and tribulations to test your patience, integrity and commitment in all of your significant one-to-one dealings between now and June.
Do you play fair? Is there enough give and take? Have you broken through some deeply embedded codependent patterns? Do you rely too much on your sense of self through the reflection of your partner’s approval? Use this powerful finale of the cosmic karma police to make all things right and balanced in the realm of relationships and commitments. Fence-sitting and wishy-washy commitments will severely break the injunctions of Saturn.
If there are any negative relationship patterns you need to break, delay no more. Wasting time is another serious Saturn no-no. If a partnership is stunting your growth because of irrational fears like being alone forever or never finding anyone else who will love you, etc., Saturn is urging you to cut the ties and face your fears gracefully.
If you have clear boundaries and are easily able to decipher “yes” from “no”, Saturn has your back … and there’s no greater karmic ally in the cosmos than Saturn. Now is the time to commit or quit!
