Saturn Retrograding

“Man is asked to make of himself what he is supposed to become to fulfill his destiny”  -Paul Tillich

Saturn is the planet that gives the knowledge that our soul needs in order to reach its biggest development in this lifetime. It is through our learning that we will develop our spiritual growth.

Our goal is to connect this growth with our physical and material life, and also how we will crystallize in our souls those challenges suggested by Saturn.

When Saturn is retrograde, our soul also follows an internal process of reflection and it goes back to our roots and initial intentions. Our battle during this process is to make our goals compatible with its objectives, and with our spiritual integrity. This means trying to be more faithful to our intentions, whose search is always directed on learning from our inner self.

Understanding how I can satisfy my physical process, and my professional, cultural and material growth without losing the original goal proposed by my soul, even before I was born. During the retrograde phase, the universe offers us a chance to review those principles and change the meanings that were lost or sleep during the journey.

Edgar Cayse, a spiritualist and astrologer, wrote the following quote that explains well what is the learning process.

“We are each a GOD in the making, and the birth chart shows which degree of construction we are assigned in this life”.

I would say that Saturn, one of the wisest planets, can help in the construction of our GOD because it could be a reference point in our birth chart.

It can show what type of foundation and structure a person needs to initiate their respective construction.

To add to the quote by Edgar Cayse I would like to mention the thoughts of one of the most advanced souls that passed through our world, whose life was devoted to healing and comforting everyone around him, the spiritualist and Yogi,

Paramahansa Yogananda: 

“Mankind is engaged in an eternal quest for that “something else” he hopes will bring him happiness, complete and unending. For those individual souls who have sought and found God, the search is over: He is that Something Else”.
