Saturn is the planet of systems and organizations, and when it's retrograde, it's time to reexamine these things and find ways to improve them. In fact, if you were born with a Saturn retrograde, you already know there are systems that need fixing, and you may well be devoting your life to doing just that.
Transiting Mars retrograde is not the time to make new starts, as this period is for directing your energies inward, determining where you should be headed and how you should get there. So when you try to push forward with new beginnings under this cycle, you often run into one obstacle after another!
