Saturn reaches its yearly retrograde station today and will remain retrograde until September 18th, dear Libra. This yearly cycle presents opportunities to reassess, edit, and refine your commitments.

As the shift occurs this week, you may be feeling the weight of your responsibilities heavily until you become accustomed to the change in perspective. Saturn rules (and is currently transiting) your sector of home and family, and these are the areas of life that may require some review.

Delays are possible, and you might experience some waning motivation levels at this time, but thinking about the long-term will help you understand the importance of this period. Reconnecting to the meaning of your commitments or responsibilities is a process, and you’ll get there soon enough.

This is a time for examining your intentions and expectations. Aim to simplify and work on projects already underway so that you can catch your breath. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector and keeping busy or putting your life in order, even in a small way, will be most satisfying.

One of your mighty strengths is your natural personification of balance. While you may not intend to be a role model, you set a fine example just by being consistently true to your principles. Probe a situation and it won’t be long before you realize it has a deep and complicated root system.

If you take this discovery in stride and patiently commence the untangling process, others can witness how it is done with zero drama. Your grace under pressure is an inspiration to all.

While work/life balance is something that is being policed all year, with powerful forces on the home and professional fronts in constant competition throughout 2019, the balance of power is shifting.

Until now the power has been on the home front, giving you a chance to build a strong base and foundation there. There are signs that the power there is waning, while professional power is getting ready to surge.

Yes, the pendulum will most probably swing too far the other way over the coming months but because of need to counter the opposite swing so far. The aim is to end the year with the right balance.

Today’s Quote: “When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”
