Re: The Saturn transit effect: does retro. differ from direct?
Remember that Saturn is the 'tester'. If a relationship breaks up at the very beginning of a square from Saturn, then the relationship was weak. Whether is was weak from the two being incompatible, or weakened by previous transits, I don't know. But it's something that should be figured out by the person asking.
And it may be that one person has no previous negative transits (within the timeframe of the relationship) but the OTHER person might have had them....you need to know.
