Saturn stations Direct in Capricorn on September 18, 2019 at 4:47 am ET.
Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn and is the planet of limitations and responsibility. Limits are valuable, as they give structure, form, shape, order and design in the material world.
Without structure and organization the universe would be a flowing soup of an abyss.
Capricorn is the sea goat that climbs out of the depths of the sea and climbs to the peak of the highest mountain – a great symbol of moving from random flow to firm structure.
Structure is also about control, which is demonstrated in how the systems of society, rules, laws and regulations provide order. But of course, who decides how things are organized, how and why can be pretty subjective and subject to biases. Rulers often use great force to have things their way from the top of the pyramid down. We can expect a whole lot more wranglings in the political sphere.
Saturn in earth sign Capricorn is also physical structure, indicating a time to focus on physical well being especially bodybuilding and toning the body. Magnesium and calcium supplementation for bone structure and the health of your teeth is also worth considering.
Capricorn is associated with the 10th house, or Midheaven, which is about reputation, status, career, fame and recognition for achievements and the practical things one has done in life.
Now Saturn is moving forward through Capricorn, which can be great for focusing your efforts on achieving goals you really want to accomplish.
Saturn teaches us lessons through practical experience giving us an opportunity to see where the limitations are so that we can restructure and make improvements to create and manifest things as we really want them.
When Saturn is Retrograde, we can usually feel a lot of resistance come up in our lives that informs us of where we need to make changes. Wherever you have been having problems, felt held back and had obstacles reveal themselves while Saturn was Retrograde, that knowledge can now be used to move forward. With Saturn direct, we can now make stronger decisions on which direction to place your strong efforts.
Is it going to be easy? Most likely not. Climbing a mountain is hard work and takes a lot of dedication and perseverance. And especially with Saturn heading towards Pluto in Capricorn – meeting on January 12, 2020, we are likely to see limitations and obstacles come into focus that combine with big transformations.
People are likely to feel a strong desire to make a change in their careers, and could resign a current job, or ask for a raise or promotion.
We are likely to see the tables turn and significant changes in reputation can occur, especially as the darker, hidden, shadow side is revealed as Saturn heads toward Pluto in Capricorn.
You may notice a shift or release of a key obstacle or blockage in your life occurs around the time of transition of Saturn Retrograde to Saturn Direct. They may not be comfortable changes, and you may feel forced and pushed to face uncomfortable things in some instances, but ultimately geared toward betterment.
If you are having a rough time these days or facing strong challenges, which may be most pronounced during the transition from Saturn Retrograde to Direct, try not to make a difficult situation worse by overreacting. Try to find the best solution for all involved without manifesting problems. A slow and methodical approach is often better.
Business, politics and money matters and banking are associated with Capricorn now, so we can expect significant changes to how things are structured in these areas. Power games in politics and finance could bring stronger limitations and shifts.
Saturn is the Roman counterpart of the Greek Chronos and relates to time, so organization, scheduling and timing of events will be of prime importance going forward.
You may also notice yourself having more deja vu experiences close to the Retrograde Stationing Direct period.
Saturn was very important to the Romans, and they had special festivals regarding Saturn when the Sun entered Capricorn, called Saturnalia. Because people worshiped Saturn as a god, this would have been considered a cult of Saturn.
It is also thought that those at the higher echelons of society time and organize their decisions and influence of worldwide political events according to astrological timing due to the uncanny coincidences.
Saturn will be in Capricorn until March 20, 2020.
And, during a retrograde cycle, Saturn will be back in Capricorn again from July 1, 2020 to September 29, 2020 for a final hoorah.
