Saturn into Capricorn


Saturn. In astrology, this planet rules physical reality, structures, discipline and responsibility, karma, limitations, the rules, big government, what is serious and forever. It rules the sign of Capricorn.

In late December 2014, it entered Sagittarius and these two weren’t happy together. Sagittarius is everything that Saturn isn’t. It’s the best, the brightest, the biggest. Think of a joyous party where everyone is laughing and having a wonderful time and imagining all sorts of wild things in every facet of our existence. Then Saturn walks into this party and announces a nuclear war has started. Everyone sobers up quickly, freaks out, and races home to their bunkers (ha) to plan for armageddon.

Saturn in Sadge gave us trump. The rah-rah I’m super great and super rich and super everything and only I can cure your problems, country!

 On December 20, Saturn finally leaves Sadge and enters Capricorn, where it will be for the next 2.5 years, until March 2020. Now we all sober up from that Sadge super party where everything was I am great to holy shit, what now? The good news is that since Saturn rules Capricorn, it functions well here. It bolsters structures we have built in our lives, the foundations we have laid, and enables us to take our wildest dreams and envision how these dreams can become our daily reality.

For those of you born between February 1988 and February 1991, you have now entered your first Saturn return, which happens around the ages of 28-29. Expect pivotal life events – a new career, a marriage, a divorce, the beginning of a family, a significant move, a major career leap. For all earth signs – Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo – this is a biggie.

For those of you between the ages of 58-60, this is also a pivotal period, your second Saturn return. It’s often a harvest, but not for everyone because it depends on how you’ve lived until now. Remember the karmic part of Saturn? Ask Kevin Spacey, 58, about that.

For all earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – this transit should be positive. The structures you’ve built in your life are solidified. You can now bring your dreams into a concrete, tangible reality. It’s not a free ride by any means, you have to do the work, meet your responsibilities. But if you do that, the rewards can be huge. The same is true for water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. For the rest of us – air and fire signs- well, look at where Capricorn appears in your natal chart. That’s the area that will be strengthened – or torn apart.

    We’re in tandem, DJan. I’m virtually blind. Will have cataract surgery on left eye in February. That eye is totally blind. Already had right one done a few years ago, but that eye is also in bad shape. I’m unable to read books or see even the huge TV in our living room. Being unable to read has truly impacted my quality of life. On the computer, I raise the font and then lower it when I’m finished. Don’t yet know if the complications are from Parkinson’s (likely) or age-related macular degeneration. In any event, I know removing the over-ripe cataract will improve my vision greatly once I get the new prescription glasses afterward. So great to hear yours went well!!! Simple procedure with dynamic positive results! 🙂

    It will be interesting to see what 2018 brings. I do hope it brings more things for me.
    2017 was rough but also great, death of 2 very dear friends but then the wedding of my Aries daughter!
    I think 2018 is going to be busy but good with a lot of significant change and growth.

    After what I have gone thru, as a Capricorn, Time for re entering this world positive and strong.

    And this Sadge just got home from her cataract surgery, and although I don’t know much for sure, I do know that nothing untoward happened in the operating room. I kept saying to myself that everything could go right! Tomorrow I find out what my eyesight will be and have my fingers crossed. I have Mercury Rising and a Virgo moon, so we’ll see.

    I’m dead-center Capricorn Sun (January 2) with Cancer Rising and Cancer Moon. 2017 has been one of the most challenging years in my old life….including the deaths of nine
    much-loved folks; husband had a minor heart attack but is gearing up fir a potential big one; I could go on and on but won’t. I will be extremely happy to see 2018 roll in, and hope these planetary shifts will bring a positive year in 2018!

    Thanks for the insight. I am praying for stability, responsible adults in the collective room, but fear tyrants. As a one-degree Taurus, I am hoping all my problems will vanish.
