Ahhhh. Saturn retrograde. This is when the planet of life lessons takes a bow and steps backward for a while, leaving you to take a good, hard look at the major decisions and choices you've made lately. And it all starts tomorrow.
On January 26, Saturn will reverse gears and travel backwards in Libra until June 13. Take this opportunity to break from pushing hard for worldly achievements, and instead turn your focus inward. All retrogrades encourage introspection, and Saturn will prompt you to review how your past decisions stack up against reality.
Is your career path in line with your life goals? Are you happy with the direction in which your life is moving? These next few months are your chance to re-assess your aims and ambitions, set new goals and adjust your methods for reaching old goals. Don't worry about making any moves just yet: All you need to do now is plan.
That doesn't mean life or your workload will be easy. In fact, Saturn loves to provide us with more work. If this happens, remember that Saturn also rewards us for our efforts -- it just might take a while to taste the fruits of your labor. Also, with Saturn in Libra, feel free to have frank discussions with partners -- business or personal -- to ensure problems are solved rather than worsened.
January 26 will also see Mercury move into a square with Saturn, which could lend the day a gloomy, discouraging feel. Don't let it get you down, though -- it will only last for this one day, and at worst, these two planets will help you cut something unnecessary out of your life
