Life has been strange since Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio last June. At first it felt like you were being dragged back into that dark pit that you had just pulled yourself out of. This might have dealt with some unfinished business in your previous relationship or a loved one suffering another downward spiral. But as your eyes adjusted to the light you began to see that things weren’t as overwhelming as all that. You weren’t required to have the answers. All you had to do was to find a way to be there for someone in the way that you once were before. On Aug. 1 Saturn comes out of retrograde. This is when you’ll see that what started out as a thankless task has actually introduced you to your better self.
