A few weeks ago, Saturn turned retrograde and will continue until the 18th September.
Plenty of time to explore and work with its energies using the Saturn retrograde tarot spread below.
Before you do, take a moment to consider what the World reversed as an energy card in a reading means to you.
In the Tarot, Saturn is linked to the World, so its retrograde energy can be compared with that of the World reversed.
In its upright position, the World suggests achievement, establishment, a sense of having arrived and be content with where you are.
Reversed, you may feel a little stifled; something is missing, and you have the urge to escape the status quo.
The World is about restrictions and boundaries, but not in a negative sense. You feel happy with where your are despite limitations.
However, reversed, you may feel less positive.
Saturn is also the ruler of Capricorn, and coincidentally, Saturn has turned retrograde in Capricorn and will also turn direct again in Capricorn.
Capricorn in the Major Arcana is linked to the Devil, so we can sense dull routines and a lack of growth.
Saturn is also linked to the following cards in the Tarot:
- Five of Wands
- Ten of Wands
- Eight of Cups
- Three of Swords
- Seven of Pentacles
Based on these cards, I have created the following spread that can help you make the most of the World/Saturn retrograde energies:
- Where in my life do I feel confined or restricted?
- What stops me from growing/evolving?
- How can I free myself from limitations?
- What past hurt is still affecting me and needs healing?
- Where do I need to change?
- How can I enhance my relationships (family, work)?
- What am I holding on to that keeps me secure?
- Where do I need to take a risk?
Saturn retrograde is a good time to evaluate your goals, plans, projects and ideas (Seven of Pentacles!).
For example, if you are writing a book, do some editing before you continue.
In your home, you may realise that some repairs or redecorating are required. You may even consider a move as you feel you’ve outgrown your space.
Workwise, you may find it hard to generate the energy to push for a promotion or change of job.
In relationships, beware of the rut! Choose your words and actions carefully to avoid misunderstandings, and remember to have some fun and just dance, dance, dance 😉
