During the last four months of Saturn retrograde, life had slowed down considerably; and possibly coming to a standstill for a few. Between the heavy weight of life’s responsibilities and then trying to create balance with the Libra Mars transit… well… moving forward might have become a difficult chore. And despite the obstacles, pessimism and distrust that confront us, life was lovingly teaching us about who we are; through our own efforts and personal responsibilities. Call it tough love.
So depending on your professional goals with career, business and finances, or your personal hopes in relationships, romance, and family – if nothing was genuinely deposited - then nothing will be the reward. Karma.
Turn your wounds into wisdom. Oprah Winfrey
Through the dark, humbling months of Saturn retrograde, we were approached by inner weaknesses, but also with an opportunity to finally face some of our fears and reality.
On Sunday July 20, Saturn the Taskmaster stationed direct. In the weeks ahead, rewards for our hard work will finally begin to fruit. We shall witness the cosmic brakes slowly being lifted, which will allow us to use what we’ve recently learned; in order to build a stronger foundation. So the struggle, and what we’ve been working hard for, hasn’t been a waste of our time. We’ve been learning something very valuable regarding honesty, self-respect and dedication for our own peace of mind. By embracing some of these new realizations with a little self-discipline, hard work, and responsible behavior - the blame, the excuses, and the need to control others will be successfully destroyed. And as we understand our own duty in life, we can patiently confront that which had once been a threat. Then it’s all back to productivity, progress and growth again.
You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them. Iyanla Vanzant
