When Is Saturn Retrograde In 2021 And What Are The Effects?

Saturn retrograde goes retrograde from May 23 – October 11 in 2021. This phase is always a favorable moment to consolidate the bases of our life and readjust our social function. Indeed, it’s the opportune period to question our way of living, working and loving. Although, the question is, how are you going to experience this planetary movement? Will it be fulfilling time or will it just bring you plain bad luck? Here’s how Saturn’s retrograde motion will affect your zodiac sign this year.

Saturn takes around 29.5 years to rotate around the Sun, but it retrogrades every year for 140 days. Saturn will retrograde from May to October in Capricorn. In Roman culture, the lord of wealth and agriculture was who Saturn was named after, representing the god’s sickle.

The ringed planet, when it retrogrades, it minimises its strength. However,  if Saturn is a self-zodiac, trine, or lord of the fifth/seventh house, those natives may have good results financially, temperamentally, and behaviour-wise. The ones who have Saturn retrograde in the natal chart are less likely to be affected by Saturn retrograde. 

Saturn governs the elements of time for individuals to build themselves up. Thus, the planet can refer to studies, agriculture and construction, it’s also the planet of delays and learning about limitations. Saturn retrograde encourages us to embrace our alone time in order to better understand other people.

How does Saturn retrograde impact us?

From May 23rd to October 11th, Saturn retrograde will make us more distrustful in our relationships, to the point where you feel others’ judgment more intensely than usual. As a result, you respect a certain wisdom in your projects and you’ll let them mature quietly. 

This phase will make it difficult for you to stick to your plans. Although, here’s a piece of advice for you, don’t throw yourself into anything without thinking the consequences through. To avoid dispersing yourself, take the time to concentrate on the essential points.

  • What you shouldn’t do during this period: Start a construction project.
  • The best thing to do during this phase is to continue with a task you’ve paused and take some time for yourself, in a quiet environment.

The effects of Saturn retrograde

When this planet is retrograde, take advantage of this period to reflect on your relationships and the idea of time. Visualize the obstacles that will allow you to prevent you from continuing your projects in the long term. Alternatively, you can also define your sense of duty.

Use the strength of your world to withdraw and better support others. This planetary motion encourages notions of honesty and patience thorough deep introspection. To come back stronger and more serene in the face of your convictions and ideas, take time out for yourself. This could be the key to solving problems. It is above all with hindsight that you will be able to carry out the projects that are so important to you.

This motion requires a lot of patience and intellectual honesty in order to remain stable. You need to move forward slowly but surely! It will push you towards deep introspection in order to feel surer of your convictions as soon as it becomes direct again. You will thus be able to move forward with determination and unblock unresolved issues.
