Saturn Retrograde: How Sound Is Your Structure?
But don't let any bumps in the blissful road deter you — or convince you to take a shortcut. Saturn is an inspector, and it's merely checking for cracks in the foundation. All the better to find those now so you can make those core corrections, ultimately leaving your ties stronger. Saturn's slowdown also urges us not to rush into commitments and agreements. Before you "say yes to the dress" (or anything), it's worth thoughtful discussion and consideration, perhaps even a course of couples therapy. Business partners may also need to have some frank talks about the fundamentals: budgets, company setup, division of duties.
Because Libra rules the lower back and Saturn rules the bone structure, take special care of your posture and back during this time. Right as Saturn turned retrograde, a friend was hospitalized with a slipped disc, and Ophira's dachshund Lulu suffered sudden back problems (please send good wishes!). Avoid those tricky yoga poses, get up and stretch if you sit a lot, and treat yourself to a visit to the chiropractor or massage therapist.
