As the Lord of Time and Karma turns forward in Aquarius on Monday October 11th, recognise that the unprecedented events of 2021 have all been fuel for your own growth. Have faith that, as you faced Saturn’s karmic lessons with grace during his long retrograde from May 23rd, you’ve been shaping your future because when energy recedes – when you’re lost, fed up or full of grief – a new inclination and impetus is always quietly coalescing underneath. And if you had a meltdown or three, that’s okay too.
In 3D, Saturn was seen as the strict Master Teacher, framing us as children waiting to be guided by the hand of fate. Think of the people you’ve given your power to, the rigid belief systems you’ve accepted or the rules you’ve swallowed whole. It was all about restriction, hard work, roadblocks and lack.
In 5D, Saturn represents:
- your evolving potential
- amplified intentionality
- having the free will to act as your own sponsor, guide, coach and mentor
- enlightened Self-interest
- the leverage you’ve been waiting for to disentangle yourself from what no longer fits
- your Flow Magic – the sweet spot between surrender to life as it unfolds and full on engagement/participation
Often your mind is loud, while your intuition whispers. The idea that seems soft and comfortable, the one that sounds appealing, is often the very thing that will end up holding you back. The other quiet idea that pops up, the one to which you say, “oh maybe later,” and make excuses as to why you can’t do it, is often the very action which will help you evolve.
As Saturn goes direct, it is the time to take those actions. Nothing grows in comfort zones! This has been the perfect time for tying up the loose ends that have been keeping you rooted in the past.
Saturn Direct is the time to check the progress of your process.

A woman burning a book of black magic.
“Karma works by indirection. We draw to ourselves what we previously activated and as it comes back, we curse the reflection. Such gestures multiply. They gather force and momentum. And soon we have fixed ideas about what is pulling us back and what is carrying us forward. Before you know it, you have become partisan, taking up this side against this other side, swept up in the drama. And you even become sure in your mind that whole segments of existence are bad and terrible and must be renounced completely. But there must come a point in the journey when the mind strips away its disguise and you know once again that all is toward the good and nothing can ever harm you, unless you insist upon it.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
