Weekly Horoscopes – Saturn in Retrograde – Karma Police

Weekly Horoscopes – Saturn in Retrograde – Karma Police

April is a rollicking month, with no less than five planets in Retrograde throughout! Now that sweet Venus has stopped twirling backwards, we’re contending with mental Mercury, generous Jupiter, serious Saturn, and powerful Pluto, as of April 20!

Retrogrades get a bad rap, but the truth is, they offer great insight into what should be reflected upon and repaired in order to get more out of life. We’re definitely being asked by our stars to do a little bit of a reset in April, to align ourselves with our current state of evolution!  

This week, I’d like to talk about the prince of the material world, the ruler of maturity, structure, and discipline, the captain of the karma police, Saturn. The ruler of time and toil will be looking over his ledger from now until August 25, prompting you to review your internal rules and rituals, and ask yourself whether they’re working for you. Saturn is the stern drill sergeant who demands that we get real and forces us to acknowledge where we’ve been slacking.

Stoic Saturn is nicknamed the lord of karma because he is concerned with how the past crystallizes the future. External circumstances will prompt you to ask: how have your past decisions shaped your current position, and how are they setting up the foundation for your future? What needs reorganizing and restructuring if you want your future to look different than the present?

He also rules duties and responsibilities, and therefore, you may be feeling a distinct push to grow up, to shed bad habits and limiting beliefs, and install new structures that can take you where you want to go. Check your Sun, Rising, and Moon sign horoscopes below to find out where you’re feeling Saturn’s push to prove yourself and improve your life.

ARIES

What do you believe in, Aries? What is the big picture goal that you’re working toward – and has that work been paying off, making waves, expanding your options? Saturn is retracing his steps in your House of Journeys and Philosophy, the House of Expanding Your Horizons, and he’s asking you to review where your journey is taking you, and whether your destination is still calling to you. Think of him as the internal compass that pulls you to do what you believe in, to build something lasting – is he tugging you in a different direction, or simply to remember why you began this journey in the first place? You may be reflecting on your education now, asking yourself if you need some kind of certification or new knowledge in order to move up in the world, or you may decide that the track you’re on isn’t suitable at all. Saturn is asking you to become more focused and disciplined when it comes to your personal growth, so this is an ideal time to trim the fat and assess what it is you truly want. Don’t feel discouraged if this time is characterized by self-questioning! That’s not a sign of problems – it’s a sign of progress. Follow the questions to find the truth.

TAURUS

What are your attachments in life, Taurus? What do you feel like you truly need? Stoic Saturn is examining your House of Intimacy and the Other with a white glove, checking on what has grown dust and needs some reorganizing. This is the House of Power and Control, and therefore, Saturn is asking you to notice how you may have been controlled by your own need for stability, security, and influence. Are you working for your money, or is your money working for you? Do you feel empowered by your position in life, or does your status make you feel insecure, fearful of loss? Saturn is here to help you shed habits and urges that have gone from motivating to disempowering. For example, the attainment of a certain status in life, or income, or a number of followers on social media can feel like a goal worth striving for at one point, but we can also becomes slaves to roles and numbers, and feel drained by our desire for power. Letting go of the need for control is your most empowering move at this moment. Don’t be afraid to ask yourself, “Who am I now? Do I still need this?” Between Mercury Retrograde in your House of Self, and stoic Saturn reviewing your House of Influence, you’re in a position to gain power by releasing attachment to it.

GEMINI

It’s time to consider and crystallize your closest one on one relationships, Gemini. How serious are you about your partners, in love, business, or creative projects? Stoic Saturn is reviewing his ledger in your House of Partnerships, putting the pressure on, asking you to question your commitments. You could experience tension in some of your partnerships now, which is not necessarily an indicator of an end – Saturn is the energy that pressures coal into diamonds and crushes obstacles into dust. Those relationships that don’t survive his intense review simply lack staying power – but those that do are going to be very worthwhile. If you’re single, this is a good time to work on yourself and your expectations of others, to “get real” about what you want in a relationship – because the ones that start under this energy are forecast to get serious! A greater balance is coming into your relationships, and a focus on quality over quantity.

CANCER

It’s time for a check-up, Cancer, and Dr. Saturn will see you now! He’s reviewing your chart in the House of Health and Habits, and asking you some tough questions about your daily routine. Do you eat nutritiously? Exercise? How much sleep are you getting? Are you organized? Stressed? What’s your plan? Take a deep breath, Cancer, but take notes too! Stoic Saturn is pointing out all the areas of your daily work and routines that need a revamp – expect to feel pressure on the way you handle the grind of your day job, your responsibilities, and health. This could come in the form of sudden issues like getting overwhelmed at work and realizing you need to institute better habits to prevent stressful situations. Or you could have a painful but productive epiphany around your health or image, and decide to change your routine up for a better future. This is an ideal time to do a spring cleaning in every way – clear your physical and emotional clutter, and clear the way for a new, more elegant way of running your life. Saturn is here to help you get healthier, clearer, and more focused on building the habits that will help you reach your ultimate goals.

LEO

What do you take pride in, Leo? What do you want to show off to the world because you love it so much? Saturn is retracing his steps in your House of Creativity, Romance, and Play, and asking, What’s the point of all this? It’s not that he questions your right to have fun, but he wants to know what it does for you. What effect does it have, or what does it produce? Though this may seem like a killjoy question, Saturn is inspecting whether you take rightful pride in yourself, or if you insulate yourself from honest examination with egotistical shields of arrogance or insecurity. He’s really putting your ego through a rigorous test – sure, you can have what you want, but why do you want it? And after you consider the why, do you still want it? Saturn’s aim is for you to hone and practice your talents for your own pleasure, and not require the outside applause that you so crave. You may even feel that you or your gifts are ignored or unnoticed at times during this Retrograde period, but know that it’s Saturn’s way of putting your focus on yourself and meeting your own standards, enjoying your own progress. He doesn’t want you to just take pride in your abilities – he wants you to see what you’re capable of creating with them.

VIRGO

It’s time to get your internal House in order, Virgo. Saturn is retracing his steps through your House of Home and Family with a white glove on, inspecting every surface for dust, wear, and tear. He’s calling for a spring cleaning of the highest order, working from the inside out. This is the time to ask yourself which structures and traditions, dating all the way back to your childhood, are still at work in your life – then ask yourself, which are working for you, and which are working against you. Saturn is offering you a chance at fundamental self-mastery, a level of certainty and structure that comes, again, from the inside out. You may feel the pressure of old family issues rearing their head now, forcing you to question your role and responsibility, and to restructure that role if necessary. Issues around your actual residence could require your attention now as well, and doing some reorganizing and de-cluttering around your home will definitely benefit you under this energy. It’s an ideal time to detach from unnecessary or unhelpful aspects of your past, and to work on strengthening your foundation and personal sense of security. This is an ideal time for reflection, journaling, and self-care. Give yourself support, and Saturn will support you in turn.

LIBRA

What are you talking about, Libra? And who are you talking to? Saturn asks this question bluntly as he examines your House of Communications, the House of Errands, Emails, and Schedules, looking over your calendar and eyeing your inbox. Stoic Saturn has been forcing you to get serious about what you want to say, and to whom you want to say it for two years now – and at this juncture, he’s reviewing your progress and telling you that you have a few errors or oversights to address. Are you sharing your message in the most effective way? Is there more that you need to learn in order to do so? This is an ideal time to work on refining the medium and the message. Your ideas matter to you a great deal, and you want them to work – so, Saturn says, review your notes, your writings, your social circle, and see what needs cutting out, and what deserves more focus. Quantity over quality. This is also a good time to think about how you can streamline some of your daily tasks to use your time more effectively. Question the way you’ve spent your time up until now and what it has produced. Your stars say structuring your life will build more fulfillment!

SCORPIO

It’s time to get real about what you really care about and what you really want, Scorpio. Are you ready? Well, ready or not, here comes Saturn, retracing his steps in your House of Money and Values, the House of your Net Worth and Self Worth, where you determine what really matters to you and what makes you feel worthwhile. You could feel some pressure to make more money now, and you would benefit from reviewing your budget and spending, and making adjustments that help you build more security into your present and future. Saturn loves frugality and hates waste, so if you’ve been a little lax in your spending, you could feel the pinch. However, if you’ve been saving and spending consciously, you could see rewards during this Retrograde. It’s an ideal time for you to really sit yourself down and ask what you’re working for – what, beyond paying your bills, is it that you want your money to do for you? And how do you want to be valued by others? If you can get a grip on what you want to create, Saturn will pose the right questions and help you implement the structures to build it.

SAGITTARIUS

Where do you get your confidence, Sagittarius? Do you like the way you see yourself? Saturn has sat you down for a conversation in your House of Self, and he is getting right to the point! You’re feeling the pressure to be your best self under this energy, to project maturity and mastery – and because it’s so important to you right now, you could feel quite pained when you don’t measure up to your own standards. Saturn is pushing you to get very real with yourself about who you are – this is an ideal time to take up new daily routines and habits to improve yourself from the inside out. You may look in the mirror and realize that it’s time to really get your eating or exercise habits into alignment with your goals under this energy, or find yourself asking if the image you’re projecting fits your true identity. Saturn is offering you the opportunity to find unprecedented levels of self-confidence by getting a clear understanding of who you really are and, therefore, who you have the potential to become, when you set your mind to it. This is an ideal time to review your identity and get it into alignment with your ideals – a massive evolution is forecast!

CAPRICORN

It’s time to spring-clean your psyche, Capricorn! Your ruler, stoic Saturn, is unpacking boxes in your House of Secrets and the Past, forcing you to examine what you’re carrying around and asking if you still need it, or if you just enjoy cluttering up the place? (Saturn’s a little dry, you see – you get it from your father!) When Saturn retraces his steps in this House, it prompts you to review your past attempts, accomplishments, and especially perceived failures, which can cause some distress and even depression if it’s not put to good use. Saturn is all about making the most of your emotional compost though, so you can come to some amazing epiphanies by cleaning out your psychological closet with his help. He’ll help you to discard old fears, attachments, and urges that don’t fit you anymore, and help you focus on what you truly need to keep around, what helps you grow, mature, and become the best version of yourself. This is an ideal time to journal, do deep self-work or even therapy, and consciously sort through which old fears and failures are tying you to the past so that you can cut cords and move more powerfully into your future. Think of it as creating space for new and better memories.

AQUARIUS

To know where you’re going, Aquarius, you must look at where you’ve been. Stoic Saturn is retracing his steps in your House of Allies, Organizations, and Long Term Goals, asking you who you’ve been affiliating with, and whether they are helping you figure out where you’re going. What is your “big picture” goal, your ultimate dream? And are you surrounded by the right people and aligned with the right organizations in order to achieve that? Stoic Saturn is putting the pressure on in your House of Friends, making it clear which associations are satisfying and which leave you feeling empty, like you’re going through the motions but not getting anywhere. You’re getting more serious about what you really want in life, and recognizing that it will take some steps to reach your desire. This is a good time to ask yourself, who feeds your mind, heart, and soul, and who leaves you feeling spiritually hungry? Don’t be afraid to ask yourself the tough questions and detach from groups or individuals that don’t serve your growth – Saturn is clearing the way for you to encounter those who can help you make serious progress toward your goals. When you get real with yourself, the future you want is pulled further into reality.

PISCES

Where do you stand, Pisces? Stoic Saturn stands beside you, asking you to take a look around and notice how far you have come on your path, and how much further you’ve got to go. He wants you to retrace your steps in your House of Career and Destiny along with him, to ask yourself better questions, correct mistakes you made along the way, and set yourself on a surer path to success. He’s telling you to face facts: the good, the bad, and the ugly, and ask yourself what has worked and what hasn’t, up until now. What have you achieved? What is still an unmet goal? You may be saddled with some additional responsibilities and duties at this time – if you have been true to yourself, this is a nod to your personal development, and they can lead to greater success! If you have been simply working yourself to the bone without a real sense of purpose or progress, it could feel like a total drag, and another sign that something has to change before you experience a breakdown. You’re undergoing a revamp of your public image, reputation, and status in the world, and any additional challenges should be looked at as a doorway to a more fulfilling future. It’s all about how you take the challenge on – Saturn says, get real with yourself, and recognize what you want to be. What would the best version of yourself do? Reflect on your past to repair and revamp your future!
