Just when you hit cruising speed, wham! Some unexpected obstacles and obstructions come at you from out of the blue. But don’t panic, Ram. This isn’t bad luck—or bad karma: It’s a short-term career slowdown and reassessment time. Future-oriented Saturn, which has been retrograde in Aquarius since March 21, shifts back back into grounded Capricorn and your professional house until September 29, giving you a chance to step back and assess your progress and correct course as needed. Make the most of this by not hitting the gas when tapping the brakes would be a more appropriate approach. See the full week >
You might decide to clip your own wings or reconsider a current plan to travel or advance your education or professional training. Today, cautious Saturn, which has been retrograde in Aquarius since March 21, backs in circumspect Capricorn and your ninth house of expansion until September 29. This pumps the brakes on anything that hasn’t been part of your lifestyle for very long. You’re a creature of habit, and sometimes when you accelerate too fast, your body needs a chance to catch up to your mind. Consider this retrograde cycle a correction period that allows you to integrate the change and weigh the old against the new. See the full week >
Even you, o’ gregarious one, need to fold in your social-butterfly wings and charge your flitting batteries sometimes! Starting today, you’ll have plenty of time to do just that as structured Saturn retrogrades back from Aquarius (and your ninth house) into Capricorn and your private, intense eighth house. They don’t call this house the “chamber of secrets” for nothing, and this backflip (until September 29) is a perfect opportunity to slow down and take some much-deserved “me time.” You might not even realize how desperately your soul is craving that until you unplug and disconnect from the world at large.

It may be time for a little head-scratching, Cancer, as commitment-minded Saturn retrogrades back from Aquarius (where it’s been back-spinning since March 21) and into Capricorn and your partnership house until September 29. Part of you may be craving a deeper connection and a sense of security with your current (or “TBD”) partner. Yet some attached Crabs may realize you’re not 100 percent satisfied with the state of your union and that some compromising is in order. While Saturn brings the reality check you want, it also insists on slow and deliberate—not rash—action. See the full week >
Any overindulging may come to a sudden halt (or seriously downshift) starting today as drill sergeant Saturn—who’s been retrograde in your relationship house since March 21—backs into your sixth house of health and fitness until September 29. If you’ve been waiting for someone to blow the whistle on your bad habits, listen up! Lace up those trainers, tune up your bike and give your yoga mat a good wipe-down. Once your body gets over the initial shock, you’ll remember how good it feels to be active and limber! See the full week >
If you’ve been zipping along on a creative project—or fell into a romantic swoon—Saturn retrograde will restore your clear-eyed analytical approach and put things into a realistic framework. From now until September 29, the ringed taskmaster will shift back from Aquarius to Capricorn, and you’ll be back in “Virgo speed,” testing things one toe in the water at a time. The only caveat for you is to not get TOO carried away with the cautiousness and allow yourself to enjoy the excitement and spontaneity that comes from not having all the answers. See the full week >
If you’ve been letting domestic matters get a little disorganized or out of balance, you can get things back the way you prefer them starting today. Structured, disciplined Saturn, which has been retrograde in your fifth house of romance and self-expression since March 21, retreats back into Capricorn and your fourth house of home and living conditions until September 29. If you’ve been avoiding certain conversations with family, now’s the time to renegotiate the house rules. But you might have to do something you prefer to avoid, Libra, like confront someone and talk about shared responsibilities and boundaries. Strengthen your backbone and make things right!

Today, weighty Saturn, which has been retrograde since March 21 in Aquarius, backs up into thoughtful Capricorn and your communication corner. From now through September 29, you’re encouraged to slow down your reaction time, especially with your verbal communications and your written correspondences. Your words will carry more weight and can have greater consequences, so think before you blurt. And when you feel strong negative emotions welling up, remove yourself from the stressor and do something to shift your mood before you unleash a rant you instantly regret. See the full week >
You may have to tighten your belt over the coming months, Sagittarius, but if you focus on the benefits instead of what you’re giving up, you might come to appreciate this exercise in self-discipline. Today, conservative Saturn retrogrades back from social Aquarius into cautious Capricorn and your financial sector. While the backspin has been going on since March 21, resolve to be less casual about your spending habits between and now and September 29, and set a big goal to stay motivated. If you’re daunted by your own dreams, this is an ideal time to enlist a coach who can hold your hand and keep you accountable. See the full week >
Reality-check time! You’re great at setting—and attaining—goals, but it’s time to stop and evaluate whether your current long-range ones actually align with the direction of 2020? Today, your galactic guardian, future-oriented Saturn, which has been retrograde in Aquarius since March 21, backs up through your sign until September 29. You’ve hosted the ringed taskmaster on and off since December 19, 2017. This final leg of Saturn in Capricorn, which will last until December 17, 2020, provides ample time to do this deep self-reflection. People change, Cap, and this annual backspin is your personal invitation to do your own self-invention. Don’t be afraid to let something go just because you used to want it. Show yourself some love by reshuffling your priorities—remembering to include plenty of self-care! See the full week >
If you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to step back from your go-go life and devote more time to personal pursuits, today’s annual pivot of your co-ruler, restrained Saturn, can bring it. Since March 21, the ringed taskmaster has been backing up through YOUR sign. From now until September 29, Saturn retreats back through Capricorn—and remains there in direct motion until moving into Aquarius again from December 17, 2020, to March 7, 2023. For the next few months, while Saturn is retrograde in your introspective twelfth house, you may crave more time to immerse yourself in your thoughts. Especially for Water Bearers who are always surrounded by friends and loved ones, this “time-out” can be particularly refreshing. It’s a perfect moment to start—or intensify—a meditation or spiritual practice. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Newsflash: You don’t have to go along to get along. In fact, if a group project is heading off the rails, you don’t want to stay on THAT ride! Today, structured Saturn, which has been retrograde in your foggy twelfth house since March 21, slips back into your eleventh house of teamwork, revealing cracks in weak foundations. If you sense that it’s time to jump ship, don’t waste time defending your decision. Certain collaborative situations are fixable, but between now and September 29, Pisces, it’s easier to do your own thing and let others take responsibility for THEIR actions. See the full week >
