Saturn in Sagittarius
Saturn tends to limit what it touches. For the last three years, it has been in Sagittarius, where it has limited our enthusiasm, optimism, and vision. It has solidified religious fervor, narrowed vision, and has encouraged xenophobia. This is because Sagittarius has been limited. Sagittarius, which is expansive, open-minded, interested in the exotic, philosophical, and future-minded, hasn’t been able to express itself fully.
Saturn is happy in Capricorn
Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn, and it is here that it expresses itself best. While this planet may be considered to be a party pooper or the planet that ruins things, in Capricorn, it easily express its good traits. It represents responsibility, productivity, maturity, learning through experience, and the wisdom that comes with age. It’s the success one earns, the good name one gets, and the traditions one creates and honors. Capricorn, which is steadfast, patient, elegant, hardworking, and ambitious, takes Saturn’s energy and turns it into success.
How does it affect you?
Where is Capricorn in your chart? That gives you a clue. If it rules your 10th house, it affects your career and reputation. If it’s your 6th house, it affects your health and routines. If it’s your 7th house, it affects your relationships and marriage. Wherever it is, Saturn will make real and concrete whatever that house represents.
The planet may be making aspects to your natal planets. If so, then it could be restricting or fortifying, depending on the planet itself. This is something an astrologer could help you with.
Perhaps you’ve started feeling the effects. Is there something that seems more real or seems less progressive? Are you hearing “no” more often in an aspect of your life, or are people starting to take you more seriously when it comes to that aspect of your life? That’s Saturn’s touch.
