While Saturn has been retrograde in Aquarius, we have been rebelling against ourselves, constantly second-guessing our own motivations – it has been a frustrating and difficult time in astrology for many zodiac signs.
On October 23rd, 2022, with Saturn turning direct once more, it’s time to stop being inwardly focused and to turn our thoughts back to our whole collective humanity.
As Saturn turns direct in Aquarius, we will start to appreciate that we, as individuals, do have a part to play in the holistic whole. There’s a greater (and growing) awareness of the collective consciousness these days. We understand the ripple effect, and we know that one individual truly can change the world.
That’s what Saturn asks us to do as this weighty astrological planet starts to move forward once more.
In order to influence the world as a whole, we must first influence ourselves, so Saturn asks that you pay attention to your own ethics and morals. Treat others as you would like to be treated, and don’t tolerate injustice, unfairness, cruelty or violence.
In your social life, you may need to be more discerning. Saturn turning direct in Aquarius is not about the number of friends you have, but about the quality of those friendships. Don’t hesitate to cut ties where you have drifted apart or where the other person’s goals and authenticity no longer align with yours.
Astrology suggests you should keep an eye on your use of technology too, since that is inextricably linked to this Saturn transit. Are you using social media to help or hinder those around you? Are you being true to yourself when you show yourself online, or are you painting a fake picture? Are you lifting up others or judging and criticizing? Remember, change starts with you, so if we want to create a kinder, more honest online world, you’re going to need to play your part.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
Don’t hang around any longer with people who don’t fit into your ‘tribe’. You’ll know when this is the case, Aries. It’s important that you focus your social life and your community efforts around making positive changes now, and you can’t do that if you are being held back by those who are still stuck in a different dimension. Give thanks for your former friendships, but then move on.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
With Saturn now direct once more in your career zone of Aquarius, Taurus, you will be preoccupied with ensuring that your working life serves a useful purpose. Don’t overthink this, however. There are many more ways in which to be useful to society than the obvious roles – think laterally about the social, emotional, physical or spiritual benefits your work provides for others, and take pride in what you do, now more than ever.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
Saturn turning direct in your education zone is your green light to go ahead with an extra qualification you’ve been thinking about, Gemini. You are urged now to do everything you can to become an expert in your field. You have a huge amount of knowledge to share with the world, but you can’t do that unless you work your way towards a position of some power of influence within your chosen sphere.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
During Saturn’s retrograde, you probably felt as though you were losing control over your life. Your situation may still be chaotic, but with Saturn now turning direct, you are learning to surrender to the chaos and relinquish the need to be in total control. Look at mindfulness as a way of staying calm while you navigate some choppy waters. Remember that acceptance is a positive choice.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)
With Saturn in your love zone of Aquarius, Leo, the end of the retrograde period comes as a relief, and things in your love life should start to feel easier now. However, Saturn reminds you that relationships come with responsibility and a need for mutual respect. Make every effort to be the partner you know you could and should be – don’t be tempted to get away with anything less, even if your partner would allow you to.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
Your mental health took a dive while Saturn was retrograde, Virgo. With Saturn now turning direct, you’re slowly understanding that your mental and emotional wellness is under your own control. Work on choosing to be calm, happy and content and work on letting go of stress and worries. Get professional assistance with this if necessary – it’s a mindset shift which not everyone finds easy.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
The influence of Saturn turning direct falls in your creativity zone of Aquarius and reminds you that airy-fairy ideas are helping nobody, Libra – you need to refine your wishes and dreams into something practical that you can actually move forward with. Working in a team will help you with this, so don’t hesitate to share your ideas with friends or associates – many heads are better than one.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
To better influence the wider community, Scorpio, start by practicing what you preach where it really matters – at home.

Work on improving family relationships and juggling responsibilities so that everyone plays their fair part in the family. Your goal is to get your family working as one cohesive whole, for everyone’s benefit.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
When Saturn turns direct, you will probably find that your workload increases significantly and your days become busier, Sagittarius.

Take on as much as you can so that you can play a full role and live up to your potential – but never be afraid to ask for help if things get too much.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
Waste and inequality are your key themes as Saturn turns direct in your money zone, Capricorn. Honor those who have less than you by ensuring that you do not waste or squander what you have. It’s a good time for cutting down on unnecessary spending, or for finding ways in which you can donate your skills and your time to a good cause – much more important than donating your money, Capricorn.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
You’ll find yourself with lots to do once Saturn turns direct in your own zodiac sign, Aquarius – good time management is going to be key, otherwise, you may well feel swamped. Take time out at the start of each day to prioritize and to choose your focus. You cannot possibly do everything, so make sure that what you do choose to do has real meaning and value for you.
Saturn Direct in Aquarius for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
While Saturn has been retrograde, Pisces, you have been focusing on your internal hopes and fears, but now that Saturn is direct once more, you are worried about our collective future. Try to rationalize away these fears by doing something constructive. Join a campaign group, educate others, or make your voice heard through art and creativity. If you are doing something to create change, Pisces, you will rest more easily emotionally.
