Monday February 18, 2013: The Moon in Gemini encourages social interaction and the Sun, joining Mercury, Mars, Chiron and Neptune in the mystical watery world of Pisces early this morning indicates that compassion and sensitivity will take center stage today. But, the big astro-event today is task-master Saturn asking you to back up and reorganize or renegotiate your responsibilities or commitments.
At noon today (EST) Saturn comes to a halt and begins to retrace the steps he's taken since mid November 2012. When Saturn changes direction today, it will end the all too short period of time (January 30 until today) when all the planets were in direct motion. During the time all planets we on go, things or situations moved on, moved out, and/or changed in some way. Now, with Saturn retrograde you'll likely realize that you needed to get clear on what your responsibilities are, what you are committed to and decide where you should go from here.
Not to worry, you'll have several months (until July 8, 2013) to get clear on just what your responsibilities are and understand exactly what you are (or are not) committed to. For many this transit will be about letting go of responsibilities, for others it will be more about accepting responsibilities.
Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away. Tom Clancy
