Finally, after five months of being retrograde, Saturn resumes direct motion this coming Saturday. Since mid-March you may have experienced delays in a number of areas, which was frustrating because your sign hosts the ringed planet in your house of dreams and wishes. You have had to wait patiently for change to come, possibly going back and revisiting issues that you thought were done.
But now they can move forward. High-energy Mars entered this house last week, hell-bent on getting things accomplished, only to find Saturn holding him back. Make no mistake about it, Saturn doesn’t move quickly even when it’s direct. It’s a logical, disciplined planet, prone to thinking things over and taking ginger steps. But when these two orbs work together, they can be magical.
Mars will provide you with the drive to get things done and Saturn will make sure that you stay on task. So whatever may have been held up—a wedding, house purchase, book deal, family meeting, travel plans, going to college or graduate school—it now will slowly pick up speed. Mars and Saturn are in your eleventh house, which governs technology, so it’s quite possible that a digital or tech project has been stymied: coding an app, getting a website off the ground, monetizing your blog, or releasing an e-book on Kindle or your site.
Friends, groups and teams are also a part of this house. Has a team member been dragging their feet and refusing to cooperate? Has a project gotten stalled because the people involved can’t agree? Once Saturn goes direct it will hand a ration of whoop-ass to whomever is slowing things down, deliberately or not.
You may start to feel momentum build earlier in the week. Salary or financial talks, such as lining up a loan or venture capital, may be stuck on Sunday. Some big picture thinking and explaining on Monday, however, may win someone over to your side. Monday is also good for “negotiating the terms” of a romance, putting past hurts aside as the two of you talk about a more secure and content future together.
Both financial and romantic discussions do well on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. You may need to take a more authoritative position or attitude on Tuesday, but you’ll do so without being overbearing. Wednesday is excellent for discussing your assets with a financial adviser or attorney, or to initiate legal action to finally receive monies that are owed to you.
It would be wise for all all Aquarians, married or single, to take a good look at their balance sheet this week. Now that Saturn is going direct in the house of your biggest goals, you need to make sure that you’ll have the bucks to finance them. Don’t despair if you come to the conclusion that there isn’t enough there right now. The full moon in your sign on the 18th will inspire you to find more cash, and when the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd, your opportunities to build a stronger financial base increases. This is passive income rather than salary, so start considering ways to make bank without having to work five jobs.
