Saturn retrograde is here!
Unlike Mercury Retrograde, Saturn Retrograde will take up a good portion of 2018.
One of the areas this affects is karma. Karma is not so much a punishment for bad deeds, but a learning experience: If you touch a hot stove, you will get a burn. With karma, the burn might not be instantaneous, but it is the inevitable result of touching the burner. It is not a punishment, just a result of action taken.
Spiritually, every action has a consequence. Positive, loving actions will be answered with even more love coming back. Negative, hateful actions will result in a negative consequence of greater intensity than the original action.
Have you been less than perfect? No need to hide under a table. Think of those you have harmed and begin to make reparations and be mindful of the actions you take that you do not create any new karma that you don't want to return to you.
The end result of this process is a clearing of negative energy and deception in our world and this is badly needed.
Keep your focus on clearing and healing your own energy while being a positive healing force for others. Clearing is not a one time process, it is gradual and you may experience many healings in this lifetime.
Don't feel bad if you discover unhealed parts of yourself. If you find yourself feeling, "completely healed." You may want to check your ego to make sure you are not deluding yourself.
The human experience is one of learning and growth. If you are not making mistakes and getting hurt on occasion, you are probably not making the most of it.
