It’s only right that Saturn stations retrograde
on June 4th, just after Mercury stations direct in Taurus. It’s only to be expected that Saturn makes a waning square to Mercury as the week begins, as if to remind us that the cosmos keeps a schedule we have little power over — no matter how often we study the ephemeris and plan accordingly. Of course, Saturn’s retrograde
is a yearly affair and lasts well into October, a transit that ultimately fades into the background of our daily lives. It’s the waning square that echoes over the week ahead, inviting us to do a double take before we rush into the plans that Mercury Rx
delayed, to be a little bit wiser the second time around.
