It’s a good day to break free from the past or change up your daily routine. But some will avoid much needed change by getting lost in mental distractions or fantasy.
As Saturn stations retrograde until October 10/11, it triggers the upcoming second Saturn Uranus square in mid June which may occur suddenly or unexpectedly over the next few weeks. Some people will see an improvement in health and finances. But many may face a deterioration in health, finances, wars, or struggle with fear-based misinformation.
When Saturn retrogrades, it’s generally best to stick to steady, slow, hard work. Then everything will be fine. But due to Saturn’s square to Uranus – the planet that likes to shake things up and break free from a rut, it may force a much needed change in your life.
But we also have a beneficial trine aspect including a Saturn trine to the North Node. As long as you release the past and keep moving forward, you can upgrade or improve your usual routine.
A few may even awaken to their life passion.
Consider making a final release of the past, or you may end up stuck in the mud, with roadblocks at every turn, along with possible undesirable consequences. But this result isn’t necessary.
If you can make a final break from the past or an old pattern, this is how you can benefit from Saturn Rx instead of getting derailed by it.

Those resisting change or in denial of changes happening may find themselves in conflict both with life and with others.
Be aware of conflict based on ethical beliefs or religious beliefs or from family or loved ones trying to hold ontobeliefs of the past.
Some may try to hold onto the past by defending beliefsystems or by spreading bad information, creating unnecessary conflict or suffering. Question the usual beliefs, click bait news, or manipulative promises, as they are based on false premises.
Also, watch for inner conflict or mental confusion as something new tries to come into your life, if you haven’t yet released the old.
As long as you actively release perceptions of control and dare to move into your new life, you can make steady, grounded progress – as well as avoid confusion and conflict.
Let Change Happen
Life changes (which began around the time of the Aries New Moon) speed up during the month of May. These are beneficial shifts happening and overall, it’s a smooth-flowing month.
ENERGIES LIGHTEN UP this month, as planets transition into Gemini.
But resistance to change can create unnecessary stress, anxiety, or panic for some people.
There’s no need to fret if you stay in flow with life’s natural, beautiful change of seasons. It may not be easy, but there are plenty of benefits if you can relax and allow organic change to take place in your life.
Growing tension from this year’s Saturn Uranus square may feel like WANTING changebut RESISTING change at the same time.
You can utilize this vital energy pattern by doing the usual operations but in a new, inspired, more authentic way. Aslo, take change SLOW in order to avoid harsh reality checks along the way.
With major planets aspecting Neptune throughout the month, watch for tendencies of escapism. If you deny the need (and desire) for change, or try to ignore changes occurring… resistance can result in missed opportunities or missing out on favorable events.
Mercury retrograde at the end of the month can play out in mental anguish or frustration concerning plans and contracts or those aforementioned reality checks due to escaping with “coping mechanisms” or delusions of fantasy.
Generally, it’s best to have contracts finalized before May 20, then stay low key until Mercury is direct around the end of June. If anxiety is an issue, consider committing to a strenuous daily workout or daily work routine, and/ora serious meditation practice.
Overall, it’s a good idea to stay clear and focused, but also relaxed. Allow life to shift and life will work out just fine. If you can stay in the game (instead of checking out) and go with the flow, you’ll be glad you did!
