Saturn starts its retrograde today, besties, what will that mean for us?
But first, here are some of the other celestial motions happening: The Gemini Moon sextiles with Mars in Leo, sprinkling enthusiasm in the day. You might find yourself in a go-getter mood, perhaps even a tad competitive. Use the motivation well.
Mercury in Gemini also sextiles with Venus in Leo and relationships might feel easier to navigate right now. There’s an easy-going energy in the way we communicate thanks to this transit.
And as I said, Saturn starts its retrograde today and this will last until November 4th. This retrograde encourages honesty, among other things. What recent life changes have been affecting you that you’ve been trying your best to ignore?
What dreams have you been putting on hold? It’s time to acknowledge the areas of improvement and make better plans. No rush, though, what’s important here is the learning. You have until November 4th for better implementation of brand-spanking-new plans. One step at a time, besties, one step at a time.
With all of that said, let’s check today’s love forecast:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Is it a good day for love, Aries? Short answer: Get out of your head.
Long answer: Yes, Saturn’s retrograde might bring us to our knees in introspection, but as much as you can, try to get out of your head. For example, you might be looking for closure from an ex, but don’t waste your time just waiting for that uncertainty. You can choose to dwell, sure, but you can also choose to thrive. I hope you choose the latter.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Is it a good day for love, Taurus? Short answer: Keep your friends close.
Long answer: Keeping your friends close and your enemies closer doesn’t seem like such a good time, right? So keep the ones who help you keep your peace instead. And you might question your role within the collective during this time, like if you’re doing enough, or if what you do even matters. Let yourself be reminded by those around you. Listen.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Is it a good day for love, Gemini? Short answer: It’s a career-driven day, besties.
Long answer: Look, as much as I want to say that love is the priority, the career sectors are getting the energy of the transits and it’s telling us to slow down. Look at projects from all angles possible, nothing is too small to be accounted for! Small and steady steps, fellow Gems, as many as it’ll take to get to the finish line. Don’t rush and more importantly, stay in your lane!!!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Is it a good day for love, Cancer? Short answer: Redefine love.
Long answer: Has love been frustrating for you, Cancer? Perhaps you haven’t allowed yourself to explore the possibilities that love could offer. Perhaps you have settled on the belief that you only deserve a certain kind of love, a love that you settle for. Take Saturn’s retrograde as an encouragement to not rush into love affairs that won’t make you feel alive. It’s also a good time to redefine and explore self-love.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Is it a good day for love, Leo? Short answer: Redefine intimacy.
Long answer: This Saturn retrograde is encouraging you to set and reset boundaries, Leo. Redefine what intimacy means for you and accept nothing less. It’s also high time to reassess just how big of a part of yourself you give in your relationships—romantic or otherwise. Respect your boundaries, too.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Is it a good day for love, Virgo? Short answer: Don’t settle.
Long answer: Saturn’s retrograde is encouraging you to rethink your relationships, your part in them, and how it affects you. It’s high time to weed out toxic and unhealthy attachments, Virgo. Have you been settling? At what cost? Take an honest and pragmatic look at the connections you hold near, you deserve the kind of love that makes you thrive and gives you peace.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Is it a good day for love, Libra? Short answer: Build upon what you already have.
Long answer: You have so much to offer, Libra, so this Saturn retrograde is encouraging you to build upon what you already have. Try not to dive into half-baked plans and instead build upon them first, making sure to keep your wits about you. Slow and steady wins the race, bestie. And you can look at love this way, too.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Is it a good day for love, Scorpio? Short answer: Everything in moderation, please.
Long answer: Don’t get carried away by all that glitters, Scorpio, some of those are fool’s gold. Remember, not everything that feels good is good for you (and not everyone who seems good actually is.) This isn’t to say you should deprive yourself of fun, but try to keep everything in moderation. And be careful whom you give your heart to, Scorpio, that includes you. Give yourself the love you deserve, too.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Is it a good day for love, Sagittarius? Short answer: Slow down.
Long answer: If you’ve been running full speed at everything you need and want to accomplish, take this time to pause and catch your breath, Sagittarius. You can’t pour from an empty cup after all. Also, Saturn starts its retrograde today in your nostalgic and domestic fourth which could surface any tension in the home front. Have you been sweeping things under the rug? Letting the elephant in the room get bigger and bigger? It’s time for honesty, Sagi. Free yourself of these worries, you are allowed to.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Is it a good day for love, Capricorn? Short answer: If you can’t find the right words to say, don’t say anything.
Long answer: Your ruling planet Saturn starts its retrograde today in your communication sector, Capricorn, and you might be a little all over the place. You might find yourself being prone to miscommunications, even attempting to explain a blunder could further push you in. Let your actions speak louder, Capricorn, let your sincerity and loyalty shine. Being intentional is key.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Is it a good day for love, Aquarius? Short answer: It’s a good day to start auditing.
Long answer: Take a hard look at your finances today, Aquarius. Especially if you feel like you’ve been making unwise financial decisions in recent months. It’s time for honesty, besties, especially if you have big financial goals in mind. Moving forward, getting an accountability buddy (how about your S.O. if you’re partnered?) might help you hit those milestones more efficiently.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Is it a good day for love, Pisces? Short answer: Cut yourself some slack.
Long answer: You didn’t come this far to only come this far, Pisces. Give yourself the praise you deserve for getting yourself started on your goals, even if the end goal still seems so far away. That’s alright, rest and regroup, bestie. Trust yourself and your decisions more, you’re so much more capable than you think. Additionally, a stable and quiet kind of love (and loving) might interest you more today.
