When Is Saturn Retrograde In 2022

In 2022, Saturn continues its transit through Aquarius started in December 2020.

As you throw away old rules that no longer serve you, don’t forget about your responsibilities. Saturn always reminds us of our commitments, but while he backs off this is a good opportunity to deal with matters on your own.

Saturn is the great teacher. Some of Saturn’s keywords are: rules, discipline, patience, responsibility, and maturity. Saturn wants us to grow! Saturn exposes the limits of the sign it transits (Aquarius) – what works and especially what does not work.

Thanks to Saturn in Aquarius, we will have to rethink everything – forms of organization, relationships, and distribution of resources.

Saturn in Aquarius is about how we, as individuals – each of us – contribute to a better world – helping ourselves, our fellow human beings, and other living beings in a place of love and support. We need a profound change in humanity to transform the world in which we live

Saturn Retrograde in 2022

Saturn, the famous ringed planet is set to turn retrograde from Saturday 4 June 2022 (Aquarius) to Sunday 23 October 2022 (Capricorn). 

Saturn is often thought of as a serious planet. He is all about rules and regulations. This taskmaster will challenge you to do things by the book and follow the letter of the law.

He loves to teach the lessons around structure, responsibility and creating a solid foundation. If you try to take the easy way out or look for shortcuts, he will likely have you going back to square one. This planet is also a strict believer in “what goes around comes around,” so be mindful of your actions. Karma is an important concept for Saturn.

During the retrograde period, you may not be so strongly influenced by this authoritarian teacher. It could be a case of classroom chaos while the teacher is away!

More likely though, you will have a chance to look at the rules and structures in your own life. This is an excellent time to reevaluate and reexamine your internal power structure. Do you have too many rules for yourself? Or maybe not enough?

What about outside standards? It is also a good time to relook at them too. Family and friends often have unwritten rules about how we are expected to behave.

The same goes for society. Perhaps many of these expectations no longer apply to you. As you grow and evolve, you also outgrow certain rules. This retrograde will highlight some of the outdated and outmoded ways of being. Let go of old limitations

The Zodiac Signs During Saturn Retrograde

2022 is a powerful year, with a great impact.

Aquarius is an ambitious and determined zodiac sign. On the other hand, Saturn is a slow planet, and slow planets dictate the course of things and create the horizon of waiting and the necessary premises for significant events.

Of course, those born in the Aquarius sign are those who directly face the Saturn transit.

The transit of Saturn from January to June may bring for some people a breath of fresh air, solutions, and opportunities.

For others, it can amplify the problems or contribute to the loss of control over the situation. The effects can manifest in any domain of life, including physically.

Cancer, Aries, and Libra continue to live in tension. They also encounter obstacles and challenges, they have a lot to deal with, but overstraining can be useful, if not through palpable results, at least through clarifications and lessons.

For Cancer, the relational area gets in the foreground, under all its forms, from love, marriage, associations, collaborations, and alliances, to competitions, rivalries, enemies, or legal disputes.

For Libra, the energies get polarized around parents and family, home, real estate, and assets for long-term use.

The greatest challenges of the year, for Aries, are related to career, social status, position, hierarchy, reputation, superiors, or authorities.

Taurus and Virgo can use to their advantage the planetary energies from Capricorn if they are determined, and remain on their toes.

The planet Saturn gives the zodiac signs strength, helping them to focus this energy to achieve what they’ve planned to do.

However, they also have responsibilities, burdens, and needs for change, Taurus in terms of views and value systems, and Virgo in terms of children, love, and sexuality, or highlighting their talents and skills.

Pisces and Scorpio can also benefit from this energy, but to a lesser extent, in the sense that some advantageous circumstances may occur, however, they need to be very careful to notice them and to mobilize themselves so they can make the most of it.

Saturn retrograde motion is a challenge in terms of information, communication, and movement for Scorpios, and it can be demanding for their nervous system.

For Pisces, the problems mostly appear in terms of group activities, integration into the community, popularity, supporters, or protectors.

The recommendation for Leo and Aquarius is to take care of their health. Additionally, Leo will face great professional pressure, with increased responsibilities and possible issues with colleagues or subordinates.

As for the Aquarius, they better stay away from addictions and avoid shadowy enemies and hidden dangers.

Lastly, for Gemini and Sagittarius, money, investments, and businesses are important matters, which require a cautious approach.

For Gemini, difficulties regarding some recuperations, inheritances, credits, allotments, etc. might also arise.

Moreover, they experience inner turmoil and may go through psychological changes.
