Saturn Retrograde in Pisces 2024 Meaning

While other planets lose their power while in retrograde motion, the ringed planet of self-mastery doesn’t! This is crucial to remember when analyzing the retrogrades of Saturn. Since Saturn is the planetary ruler of karma, all sorts of energetic adjustments take place during its retrograde motion. This is especially true when Saturn retrogrades in Pisces, the events that transpire now bring huge and incredibly valuable lessons, not only from the past few months, but even from past lives. This is due to Pisces being a psychic water sign and bringing the archetype of the old soul.

On a more practical level, the 2024 retrograde of Saturn will have us review all the progress we have made in all the areas of life that Saturn rules, since November 4, 2023. This is when Saturn was last retrograde in Pisces, so it’s useful to look back at what has transpired for us in this area of our chart. In astrology, Saturn rules career, structure, achievements, and responsibility. However, due to Saturn not being happy in Pisces, attaining self-mastery in these areas of our lives has been harder than normal, since Saturn first entered Pisces, back on March 7, 2023.

Saturn Retrograde in Pisces 2024 Horoscopes for your Rising Sign


Good news, Saturn is in a friendly position to your sign! Since March 7, 2023, you have been asked to remove from your life anything that is preventing your spiritual growth. Now, as Saturn retrogrades, some secrets or previously hidden information come to light to assist you in this process. It is now crucial to stay aware that any endings are occurring due to a major new beginning you will experience at the beginning of 2026, once Saturn enters your sign. 


Since March 7, 2023, you’ve been inspired to form alliances that will help you reach your career goals. You’ve been building bridges and perhaps collaborative alliances, and as Saturn goes retrograde, you will truly see which ones will survive and which ones will not. Don’t fret if a group dissolves, as it would mean that its purpose in your life was already fulfilled. The possibility of joining another group could still present to you in the near future.  


What’s your true purpose? Is your career aligned with your life’s path? Answering these questions has been your vibe since Saturn entered your tenth house at the beginning of last year. As Saturn moves backward in the sky, you get reminded that now is the time to invest all your energy, time, and effort in building either your reputation, business, or career. The obstacles you run into from now until mid-November should be seen as opportunities for either self-mastery or re-direction. 


Having the most serious planet of all in the sector of your chart that rules life philosophy should certainly feel like an existential crisis at times. But instead of shattering your trust, what these reality checks truly mean to do is help you understand what is truly important to you. Saturn retrograde is the perfect time to re-assess your confidence and attitude towards life. It’s okay to question everything—that’s the point! But never let go of your optimism.  


It’s never easy when the planet of limitations puts to test your closest relationships. Whether it’s issues around commitment, money, or even sex you’ve been dealing with, on and off, since early March of 2023, there is a reason for this, Leo. Saturn is testing your ability to truly reach intimacy, and your big test is coming during this retrograde. In the end, you will be left with the ability to truly transform the way you relate to your partner and other people. While it’s scary to learn to truly open up, Saturn will teach you the true meaning of unconditional love. 


Since March 7 of last year and even a bit before, your relationships have been put under the microscope. Whether they are of a romantic or business nature, you’ve noticed that they’ve either ended or have become stronger. Well, this process intensifies during the retrograde of Saturn as the planet of self-mastery examines where you invest your precious energy. While this “energetic clean-up” is not easy to digest at times, it’s certainly the medicine you need in this process of maturation. 


For you, Libra, Saturn has brought practical lessons to fine-tune your life, since early March 2023. This three-year transit has most likely resulted in longer work hours, which has also required having a more established wellness routine. Saturn retrograde is here to test what you’ve so far learned, exposing that there is still room for growth and adjustments. Be nice to yourself along this process by remembering that it’s a three-year marathon and not a five-month sprint. 


No, Scorpio, that feeling of true fun hasn’t “ghosted you”—it is just transforming! Saturn activating your fifth house of pleasure means that the usual activities, palettes, and even people no longer light your spark. That’s okay! The toughness of life brings the illusion that pleasure should just naturally come to us, but that’s far from the truth. Saturn retrograde sends the message that, over the next five months, you must find new passions, so start searching for them!  


Who and where we come from inform our current and future reality is what Saturn, the Father of Time, has been teaching you since the early Spring of 2023. Whether you’ve been having to focus on re-exploring your identity, family, and ancestral roots, this is about building a strong foundation for yourself. Retrograde Saturn is bound to bring a few shake-ups to your structure, but nothing you can’t handle! In the end, you can come out grounded and more empowered. 


For you, Saturn’s learnings are all about communication, thought processes, and self-expression. If you feel like something is blocking you from expressing yourself, it is a call to master it. This is especially true if you’ve been avoiding telling a story that at some point was painful. Remember that Saturn is about self-mastery, which can be attained by means of writing and even storytelling. By the beginning of 2026, you will enjoy having a much more structured way of expressing yourself.  


Since the Spring of 2023, Saturn in Pisces began asking you to truly weigh the true value of things. Spending less is only a manifestation of this energy, as there are deeper things to look at. Like, for example, the true value of your work and how that reflects on your sense of self-worth. Retrograde Saturn will have you making changes, not only to your budget but also to your rates and services. By the beginning of 2026, you will move through life with masterful a masterful sense of confidence! 


Since Saturn entered your sign back on May 7, 2023, life has been real, to say the least. Within this “adulting” process you’ve been experiencing, you’ve been asked to begin building something meaningful for yourself, and that will last the test of time. As Saturn goes retrograde, this “ability to build” will get tested, and you should not allow any setbacks to deter you now. Remember, you have until February of 2026 to show Saturn what you are made of!
