Get ready to take things more seriously -- Saturn, the planet of boundaries, karma and life lessons, is going direct in Sagittarius on August 25, 2017, and progress will surely be made.
Saturn has been retrograde since April 6, and that has managed to lighten our load a little for the past few months. See, Saturn is serious, so when it’s in retrograde we’re relieved of some of life’s greater pressures.
However, it’s time once again to get serious about our lives and our future plans as Saturn begins to move forward again. We're now forced to take stock of our lives and learn some karmic lessons -- especially if we haven't made wise decisions or treated others fairly in recent months.
Saturn spends a lot of time in retrograde motion -- about 36%, in fact -- so its forward motion is not going to change your life too dramatically. But you will feel more of a sense of urgency about your life’s larger issues than you have in a while, and it could produce some anxiety.
Saturn Direct can affect each of differently depending on how we've been behaving and where we are at in our lives. For example, some relationships may become stronger and more serious, while others may end completely after much contemplation.
Overall, though, all of our dealings in personal relationships and career will take on more weight, and we’ll appreciate the solid and reliable people in our lives more than ever.
