The Saturn is transiting to Capricorn from Jan 2020(there will minor variation in timings with different panchang) to May 2022, this transit is going to be positive for many as already Saturn and Ketu in Sagittarius are creating a lot of issues all over the world.
Background on Saturn transit and retrogression
Of all planets considered in the Vedic astrology, the Saturn is the farthest planet from the Sun. The Saturn approximately takes 30 years to complete one revolution around the Sun. Since there are 12 zodiacal signs, Saturn will approximately transit to each zodiac for 2.5 years. During this process, when Saturn is in 5th house from the Sun the retrogression will begin. The actual retrogression last for ~140 days. In 2020, for approximately 140 days the Saturn will be in retrogression(ie between May 2020 to Sept 2020). The same retrogression will occur again in 2021 when Sun is in ~110 degrees from the Saturn. But since Saturn transit is very slowly, Saturn rarely transits to previous sign during the retrogression, unlike Jupiter which transit to previous sign for fewer months.
Ideally, the retrogression would start when Saturn crosses the midpoint of the 5th house from Sun and retrogression end when Saturn crosses the midpoint of the 9th house. The earth takes 365 days to complete one revolution around the Sun, so the Sun will appear in one Zodiac for roughly ~30 days. Since the retrogression of Saturn lasts for ~120 to 140 days, two sign back from the 7th house and 2 signs forward from 7th house of Sun will indicate that Saturn is in retrogression.
