This turning was commented upon in my 2013 General Forecast:
Saturn Retrograde (February 18 until July 7)
Saturn turns your attention inwards to consider the nature of Union in your world...You have been delving deeply with Saturn in Scorpio, into how you can overcome your pains of separation and join with one another more completely. Now you need to look within to see what is there, what you hold to, or what holds you back from the deeper experiences you profess to desire. The shadows of the past, your fears about rejection or loss have to be faced and released here within yourself, for only then will you find your joy out there.
During any retrograde you are given an opportunity to draw closer to the tests and opportunities your planetary companions offer as their gifts to you. There is no greater teacher than Saturn, and no greater test or opportunity than what he will show you in Scorpio.
Your greatest longing is to be found here, to draw closer to and become one with one another...and there is no greater fear or pain than this, nothing is more painful than to experience the loss of your union...it is almost unbearable. But this is part of your journey as you move from the lesser to the Greater Understanding, from the realms of shadows and half-truths and draw that much closer to your true Self...You can only grow by letting go of what brings you pain and so you will come closer and closer to the Crossing Point...and you will leave behind the darkness and fears as you move into the Light.
Let Saturn help you to face your fears, which are your self-made reflections, formed by those aches and pains of what was but is now lost, or what might have been and yet was not to be...
Understand that these painful laments that echo into your present circumstance can be easily misunderstood and foster hopelessness, loneliness and despair, and so you might turn from the prospect of union, to give up on yourself...but this is not who you are and this is not the message these echoes are meant to carry for you.
Instead you will eventually see and understand that these laments contain the mirrored reminders of the Love that Was, Is and Will always be. That the One True Reality that binds all as one is Love, and it is this fundamental Force which holds all of Creation together in Love.
You will come to understand that the pain or loss you feel from time to time is equally and more truly to be understood as the measure of the Love that was, is and will always be there for you, for this Love is within you as much as it surrounds you too...and so you will eventually live in acceptance, peace and understanding.
Let Saturn teach you to let go of the Illusion that comes from your Mortal Frame, let go of this Maya of Separation...
For all are ones of the One and you are never, ever alone...not ever.
For with you always, forever and ever, forever you walk with your beloved, your own higher Self...
Who wishes only for you to realize the Greatness that awaits you, that lies within you...
That is You, your Self.
