From today til July, and then from December 2020 until 2023 Saturn - The father-god who as a planet rules time, effort, mastery and structure - is moving from Capricorn into Aquarius! Saturn transits last 2-3 years, visiting each sign once every 29 years. Collectively, Saturn brings attention and challenges to work through - and in Capricorn since late 2017, the sign of big business, government & institutions, all of our global conflicts have related to our world leaders, banks, religions and social structures and what happens when power goes corrupt.
Saturn gets a bad rap in modern Insta-Astrology because in the age of superficiality and disconnection, it's easy to interpret Saturnine energy as like... difficult.
The thing is this. (And this is super important if you were born in 1991-92 and are having your Saturn Return in the next year!) Saturn doesn't punish us, it asks us to take the time to invest and nurture, what we want to grow. If this matters to you, be present and care for it. Do it properly.
Practical solutions. Show up. Long-term benefits.
Collectively Saturn (with Pluto) in Capricorn has been asking - 'Ok, are you happy with family behaviour, your government's priorities, people who are in power? Do you trust them to rely on them?' and if not, 'Where can YOU take responsibility now?'
Saturn transits don't ask for miracles, they ask us to show up and do something tangible. I.e. There's no point ranting online if you aren't also doing objective research to ensure you have correct information and then translating that into action like protests, petitioning and personal responsibility. There's no point getting your hair done but skipping the overdue trip to your dentist. Sometimes it feels better to have savings instead of a holiday. You SHOULD be saying please, thank you and sorry to your partner and being accountable to your family. You know? It's about boiling down what's important, INVESTING TIME & ENERGY into MASTERING that thing so that it lasts and blooms.
Anyhoop, let's talk Saturn in Aquarius!
Aquarius, the sign of friends and organisations, ideals, dreams, theories and technology, is humanitarian but distant - an air sign, after all. Saturn in Aquarius is bringing us challenges in those areas collectively, not to punish us but to help us prioritise and sort what's REAL from what isn't. And above all to remember that our lives both impact, and are impacted from the world around us - we don't exist in a bubble, even when it would be comforting to believe so.
Saturn in Aquarius ideas:
-Transform your dreams into something real.
-Are you being too idealistic with some relationships or trends?
-Consider the possibility that you may be wrong sometimes & it's an opportunity to grow.
-Make your business actively inclusive, not exclusive.
-Be on the lookout for extremist dogma
-Reinvent your working schedule or education.
-If your group, organisation or friend circle no longer resonates with your values, go solo.
-Challenge outdated ideas within yourself and outside of yourself
-Learn to embrace the voices of people that you may not have considered, don't be afraid of the new!
