Planet Saturn Retrograde 2024 in the Zodiac Sign of Pisces – Unlock the Door to Success

Saturn is the Planet of Structure

Saturn is the planet of chronological time, governments, judicial systems, employment, those economically disadvantaged, and natural resources, including agriculture. Saturn is also ‘Lord of Karma’… he is not to be trifled with! This planet is related to contraction, restriction, and limitation.

Things to remember: everything must be above board, organised, structured, and properly legal. Saturn is also known as ‘Father Time’ and is also associated with elderly people, responsibility, dedication, and hard work. When Saturn is retrograde, you may feel the burden of responsibility more so than usual. There could be delays or things move too slowly for your liking.

On the positive side, this planet provides a feeling of stability, caution, long term goals and a link to past experience. Learning from your mistakes can be important.

Saturn Retrograde in 2024

Saturn enters retrograde in Pisces from June 30 to November 16, 2024

Saturn in retrograde motion in the Zodiac Sign of Pisces in 2024 holds significant introspective energy. In astrology, this is the planet of discipline and responsibility. When it appears to move backward in its orbit i.e., its retrograde phase, it urges a review of structures, commitments, and long-term goals. This period emphasizes the need for self-discipline, accountability, and inner growth. It’s a time to reassess boundaries, learn from past experiences, and strengthen foundations for future success. Retrograde Saturn invites us to embrace challenges as opportunities for personal development and to realign our ambitions with a deeper understanding of our responsibilities.

Issues with Authority or Governments

Saturn goes retrograde every 12 months for about 4½ months. There is also a ‘shadow period’ commencing on March 23, 2024 and completing on February 18, 2025. Saturn has an affinity with the masculine yang energy, although some disagree and say Saturn is neither male nor female.

When this planet is retrograde, issues with authority figures may arise – particularly with governments or fatherhood figures. Inconvenient new laws may be passed, or issues around agriculture such as food shortages may become pressing or more important. I also feel a connection with the weather, although I can’t find anything to substantiate this.

Many people are affected by the Saturn retrograde in Pisces transit to some extent. But if you have Capricorn or Aquarius strongly in your chart, you may be strongly affected. Mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will also probably feel this retrograde.

Be Diligent, Organised, and Patient

Saturn likes you to be diligent, responsible, and organised… if you’re not… he can sometimes be stern and authoritarian, especially in retrograde. There’s no room during this time for taking shortcuts or doing shoddy work. Saturn retrograde motion brings attention to our emotions and your ability to be flexible and go with the flow. However, his plan is for you to find practical ways to structure your dreams into REALity using your emotions as fuel to power you along the journey.

During Saturn Retrograde, it’s best to be cautious and responsible, especially as your career or work could slow down. Don’t try to do anything that’s not on the straight and narrow. Saturn can bring restriction and delay, obstacles and challenges. If people have done the wrong thing, they’re likely to get caught now, especially irresponsible fathers or grandfathers.

During the retrograde, plans may seem to be going backward or get stuck in some way. Be patient but determined. You can move forward again soon; just don’t push it during this time. Saturn Rx is not the time generally to take unnecessary risks, but especially with your finances.

Saturn Relates to Karma and Time

Time may slow down, so be careful with appointments and anything that is time sensitive. Watch your time management. The past may come back for you to ‘do the right thing’ or make amends for previous misjudgements. If you’ve been meticulous in the past by being careful, responsible and diligent, karma may smile now by offering you a substantial karmic gift. Or authority figures could bless you in some way!

2024 Saturn retrograde can manifest as sadness, tiredness, feeling unmotivated, and stuck for certain people. Sometimes people may feel a lack of self-confidence or vitality. It is a time for continuance, not giving up, and to keep persevering. All good things come to those who wait and ‘do the right thing’. Patience is a blessing especially related to career goals, plans and strategies.

If you are ‘mature’ then Saturn’s retrograde motion may not be so much of a chore… Saturn likes maturity in personality and in age. For a woman, Saturn’s blessings may arrive after menopause.

Many blessings in 2024!
