On November 4, 2023, Saturn concludes its retrograde phase, putting an end to a cycle that began on June 17 and lasted for four and a half months. When a planet retrogrades, it serves as a period of cosmic fine-tuning. The planetary reversal shakes off the karmic dust that has accumulated during its normal motion. Think of it as a “cosmic stretch.” Just as stretching your joints and muscles in uncommon directions can expand their range of motion, planets retrograde to recalibrate destiny’s path.
This retrograde period carries extra significance because it’s Saturn’s “first retrograde” since moving into Pisces on March 7, 2023. This shift, happening roughly every two and a half years, holds enormous astrological implications. It signals the end of individual struggles faced over the last two to three years and heralds the beginning of a new chapter in life.
Saturn is a planet that fosters growth. It poses challenges and tribulations, paving the way for significant development. Growth involves building upon the foundations laid in the past to create an even stronger base for the future. This means your past struggles have a purpose; they directly link to your current and future challenges. Your hardships are never in vain. They connect to your present and future, shaping the path you’re meant to walk.
With the conclusion of its “first retrograde” in Pisces, the stage is set for new battles. The challenges you faced over the past few years (from 2021 onward) have likely transformed or disappeared. You’ve overcome a difficult past, establishing a strong foundation for your life. And you’ve likely already embarked on a new journey toward even greater heights.
We’ll divide the impact of Saturn in Pisces into two chapters: ① The challenges you’ll face from Saturn from March 7, 2023, to May 24, 2025. ② The accomplishments you achieved under Saturn’s trials from the end of 2020 to March 7, 2023.
It’s crucial to view ① and ② as parts of a single narrative. The hardships you endured and overcame during the period of ② will serve as the foundation for the challenges arising in ①. Interpret your past accomplishments as the basis for your current and future challenges. If you’re struggling now, remember that these trials are stepping stones to your future. Challenges are meant to be solved, and trials come into your life to be overcome.
Saturn delivers challenges, and people grapple with these over two or three years to form the foundation for the next three decades of their lives. Choose your zodiac sign from the following 12 to explore what Saturn brings to your past, present, and future.
