Saturn Retro 2015-01: Introduction

Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2015, is from 14th Mar- 9th Aug. This is my fourth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles) and Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles).
The 4.5 month Saturn Retrograde is a special window period for Sun ruled people to move forward/ break through and Saturn ruled people to regress/ review/ rewind. When this period is utilized properly, it can bring harvests that may even continue over the preceding years.
This year, 2015, is very interesting, as the first three weeks of Saturn Retrograde coincide/ overlap with the annual 4 month long period of Jupiter retrograde, from 9th Dec 2014 to 9th April 2015. So the next three weeks are a Special Retrograde, with both Karmic heavyweights of the Vedic cosmogony, in retrograde motion.. together!
As described in earlier retrograde posts, the actual effects of Saturn retrograde is felt two weeks before the retrograde officially commences. For me, this year the effects were begun by my mother in laws hectic eventful visit to Delhi. Which coincided with wife Sangeetas, girls trip out to Kasauli. On women's day 8th march, I was up at Kasauli with 6 women, aged from 6 years to 68 years. Both altitude, hills, and women Shakti/ Durga are representative of Solar/ shakti energies.  When we returned, barely after a days rest, mother in law, and I left for a eventful and hectic pilgrimage to Ujjain. She left yesterday, on the very morning of the beginning of Saturn retrograde, 2015. And today, on the first sunrise of Saturn Retro, 2015 I'm feeling the void, emptiness, vaccum that naturally follows after a hectic social festival. And utilizing the gravitas/ heaviness of the moment, on the first SUNday morning of Saturn Retro 2015, I've begun the daunting task of commencing the posts on this annual Saturn Retrograde period. 
So, the first post of Saturn Retrograde, 2015, has been ritually commenced, on the very first morning, first SUNday morning of Saturn Retro 2015. Whew...
