Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 17th September 2020

The Sun at 25 degrees 27 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 27 minutes Capricorn at 9.37 pm GMT 10.37 pm BST 17th September 2020.

Personal achievements can be attained by accepting your responsibilities and using them to your advantage. Competence and conscientiousness are useful to pick up on and correct faults that would become obstructive if left to their own devices. A lot can be done, especially if there is a need to become organised or declutter; a life laundry can also be successful. If you need to project an image of being professional and want your skills to be taken seriously, this transit will be very helpful.

Mercury at 25 degrees 53 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 53 minutes Capricorn at 7.23 am GMT 8.23 am BST 3rd September 2020.

Long standing problems that have been running in the background can be resolved by analysing all possible solutions in detail. The ability to concentrate on important matters that should be taken seriously is heightened with this transit. Seeking advice from those who you consider to be older and wiser, or more experienced in dealing with a particular subject could be a good move. Plenty could be achieved by making the effort to become more organised with the intention of creating order to alleviate stress or anxiety caused by poor management.

Venus in Cancer opposition retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 2nd September 2020

Venus at 25 degrees 54 minutes Cancer is opposition retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 54 minutes Capricorn at 12.18 pm GMT 1.18 pm BST 2nd September 2020.

What you want to nurture and protect has to be balanced with duties and obligations that have to be repeated to make important accomplishments. Enjoyment of spending time with family and friends is acceptable, but there is the risk of getting out of tough with what you want to achieve. The opposite could happen when you may spend too much time working and not enough time showing those you care about how much you appreciate them. Disappointments in relationships can happen which lead you to re-evaluate how seriously you are or want to be committed to them.

Mars in Aries square retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 24th August 2020

Mars at 26 degrees 19 minutes Aries is square retrograde Saturn at 26 degrees 19 minutes Capricorn at 6.17 pm GMT 7.17 pm BST 24th August 2020.

Proceed with caution is the main aim during this transit; charging ahead without a plan of action is ill advised. Perseverance can bring success, but a lot of hard work and energy will be involved; although it won’t happen if you’re not careful and thorough. There is a sense of fighting against the tide and the harder you fight the more tired you will become. There may be plenty of obstructions, so it’s best to take your time to pick the weakest one rather than confronting the first one that comes along. Also try not to get in your own way by allowing pessimism or doubt to get the better of you; stay as strong as you can but conserve your strength.

Mercury at 27 degrees 38 minutes Cancer is in opposition with retrograde Saturn at 27 degrees 38 minutes Capricorn at 9.01 pm GMT 10.01 pm BST 3rd August 2020.

Allowing your emotion to influence your decisions could unnecessarily create obstacles that repeatedly demand time and effort to clear, to give you moments of mental and emotional respite from the effect of the trouble you have caused for yourself. Commitment to fulfilling duties and obligations that are an essential part of the struggle for success should not be allowed to overwhelm your ability to nurture your mental wellbeing. Spending time with family and friends should be at least an equal amount to the time you spend on what you work to achieve.

Sun in Cancer opposition retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 20th July 2020.

The Sun at 28 degrees 38 minutes Cancer is opposition retrograde Saturn at 28 degrees 38 minutes Capricorn at 10.29 pm GMT 11.29 pm BST 20th July 2020.

Previous limitations that were placed upon you in the recent past that you had to work through will make another appearance. However, the lessons you learned last time will help you to prepare for what is coming. Feeling an emotional connection with others who are in similar circumstances as you are will give you strength. Although there may be a sense of pessimism that could drag you down, there is a little bit of tenacity that can pull you through. For those who are lonely at the moment, don’t stop yourself from revealing your vulnerabilities to those who care about you.

Mars in Aries sextile retrograde Saturn in Aquarius 28th June 2020.

Mars at 0 degrees 14 minutes Aries is sextile retrograde Saturn at 0 degrees 14 minutes Aquarius at 10.59 am GMT 11.59 am BST 28th June 2020.

Self-discipline is necessary to take action to do what needs to be redone. Fortunately the second time around is quicker and easier, so it won’t be a struggle to be patient when unexpected demands occur; the challenge may even provide upon completion. Don’t expect a great surge of energy during this transit as it’s more likely to be consistent with the odd erratic spike that can’t be planned for or predicted. Prepare and get a structure in place to make sure you’re in the best position if the chance to attain solid achievements presents itself.

Sun in Gemini trine retrograde Saturn in Aquarius 22nd May 2020.

The Sun at 1 degree 51 minutes Gemini is trine retrograde Saturn at 1 degree 51 minutes Aquarius at 12.03 pm GMT 1.03 pm BST 22nd May 2020.

If you want to get your affairs in order and build up stability, to alleviate any anxieties caused by unusual events that can be oppressive, this transit will ease the process. Reviewing what freedoms are available within the restrictions that have been placed upon you will give you the chance to see what you can do to adapt and play to your strengths. There is an urge to rejoin the path to attain personal accomplishments that have been put to one side due to the time and effort required. Although the weight of this falls only on your shoulders, what you gain is earned and belongs to you.

Mercury in Taurus trine retrograde Saturn in Aquarius 12th May 2020.

Mercury at 1 degree 57 minutes Gemini is trine retrograde Saturn at 1 degree 57 minutes Aquarius 8.15 pm GMT 9.15 pm BST 12th May 2020.

An ability to be alert enough to pay attention to all the facts and figures for important matters is heightened. A hint of inventiveness won’t go amiss when working through tasks that require concentration and a methodical process of checking and rechecking all is at it should be. Creating order out of chaos can happen as long as it’s not boring or tedious. If you want to catch authority figures that are normally considered in a position of control, especially those who are associated with the government, make sure you are as accurate as possible. If they frequently change their stance or what they stand for you should have nothing to lose by criticising what you perceive to be incompetence.

Mercury in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius 28th April 2020.

Mercury at 1 degree 50 minutes Taurus is square Saturn at 1 degree 50 minutes Aquarius at 5.28 pm GMT 6.28 pm BST 28th April 2020.

Mental discipline may be there but it will be tested with fulfilling responsibilities that have been placed upon you but not anticipated. There may be an inclination to stick to tried and tested methods when unconventional solutions would be more effective. Those who are not in the frame of mind to apply themselves to the work they should do, may be surprised by the criticism they receive due to their inertia. Any negotiations initiated now could be hard work and won’t be concluded quickly. Innovative and extraordinary ideas and theories created right now are interesting but impractical. Getting organised and implementing a system of order won’t be easy and effort to put that in place can be erratic.
