Saturn in Capricorn December 2017 ~ Incredible Potential


Saturn in Capricorn December 2017 ~ Incredible Potential

December 19 2017 until Dec 17 2020

Saturn enters Capricorn on December 19th, one of the signs it rules, Saturn is dignified and functioning well. Saturn feels right at home in Capricorn. This is a time for turning a critical eye to our career choices that don’t accurately reflect our authentic selves. Capricorn is an uphill battle that eventually succeeds if we persist. Perseverance is rewarded. The rewards are usually delayed but the results can be long-lasting. With Saturn in Capricorn, we have a sense that we should work hard for what we want if we want it to last, grow, and strengthen.

Capricorn is ruler of governments, politics, and rulers, so Saturn in Capricorn may bring extra focus on governments, politics, and rulers, for better or worse. Some may fall, and some may strengthen; some may change and evolve; some may be challenged and feared. We’ve seen a rise in nationalism and populism around the world lately and oddly enough Capricorn can represent globalism and capitalism. Irresponsible globalism and capitalism likely get targeted harshly under punishing Saturn energy, but the expansion of nationalism and populism may not continue either. Narrow views may be under the microscope, and we’re forced to take a step back and see how all of the pieces of the machine work together instead of just focusing on one component.

Saturn in Capricorn is going to be very different from his time in Sagittarius. Pluto is already in Capricorn when Saturn enters Capricorn. Saturn and Pluto were last together in Scorpio in the mid-80’s, Whenever Saturn and Pluto come together, they create intense discipline and unrelenting focus. They bring incredible potential but also energy that’s so strong so intensely frustrating at times, that they can crush us by their weight. These two are the most serious of the planets, and it’s not going to be an easy ride. This will especially be true when they actually conjunct - which thankfully, only happens once in mid-January of 2020.

Saturn transits and cycles can be considered cycles of achievement and maturity. When Saturn forms a hard aspect to a personal point in our chart, we might feel that everything is slowed down–we encounter delays, frustrations, and pressures. But these times also challenge us to face reality, thereby opening ourselves up to increased wisdom and the freedom that comes with living in truth.

Saturn teaches us about the value of moderation and caution. Perhaps the best way to manage hard Saturn transits to personal planets and points is to avoid fighting these lessons. Accept that, at this time in your life, things may move at a slower speed.  This period in your life is a time for building a solid foundation. Understand that moderation at this point in your life is necessary for your spiritual growth and your physical body as well. Avoid blaming others for where you are at now doing this will only lead to feelings of melancholy and anger. 

Saturn officially leaves Capricorn December 17th of 2020, almost 3 years exactly after he first enters. So we’re in for an intense 3 years!
