Saturn Retrograde October 19, 2002
Today's Wisdom Teaching is on the planet Saturn. Last Friday, October 11th, 2002 Saturn went Retrograde in the sign of Gemini. This is Saturn'sfinal retrograde in the sign of Gemini.
Saturn stays in each sign for approximately 2 1/2 years. On February 22, 2003 it will go direct and will move into the sign Cancer on June 4th, 2003. The Wisdom during any retrograde is that it is a time for introspection and reflection.
Saturn is archetypically associated with discipline, patience, responsibility, habits, limitation and time. Saturn is connected in mythology to the God Chronos.
Chronos has been known as Father Time for at least the past three thousand years. Hence we have the word chronological, which means, "arranged in order of time of occurrence" or "to put things in order." There are many mythological stories regarding Saturn and Chronos. For today's weekly wisdom we will focus on the idea of time.
