When Saturn is in Retrograde motion its a time when karma is served. So basically, Saturn retrograde is a like a double decker karma sandwich, which may or may not be hard to digest.

Just an F.Y.I. Saturn goes retrograde in transit a little over every twelve months, lasting about 4½ months.... yaaaaay... or not. While Saturn is in Retrograde you will likely experience it is a time of limitation, worry and fear. Just remember my dear, even when things seem as though they aren't getting any better; this is only TEMPORARY.
During the months when Saturn was entering into the retrograde zone, you would have probably had to face some less than fun issues involving your obligations and responsibilities relating to people who depend on you and in your career.
Saturn retrograde asks you to allot some extra time to take inventory of all the important details and make sure everything in order before you proceed.
I have a feeling you could be challenged or tested in in the next little while in order to make sure you are ready to take on the extra responsibility and ascend to a higher level of responsibility. The lessons you learn are likely to be hard but they will be unbelievably valued later on. On the flip side of this fun little coin, you may need to make sure feelings of sadness or shyness haven't gotten out of control. If they have, then Saturn retrograde will offer you an opportunity to acknowledge any problems you are having and begin the healing process.
By the time Saturn stations direct, it is my hope that you are able come to terms with the any limiting issues and be ready for the next phase of your life. Do your best to invest in focusing your attention to details and remember that Saturn loves it when you play by the rules.
That's all for now my love.
