Saturn enters Capricorn today, December 19th, to stay for the next two-and-a-half to three years. Saturn is the planet of responsibility, self-discipline, patience, and hard work. The basic personality function of Saturn is to test us until we learn our purpose in life.
Now, Saturn gets a bad reputation of being the cruel taskmaster. Yes, can Saturn throw us some tough life lessons, but those lessons are critical for our soul growth and the growth of society. Jupiter gives us the urge to run out and explore all areas in life, to expand our knowledge and experiences. Saturn then comes along and says, "Yes, expand and explore, but within your means and with boundaries to protect yourself." For example, I may have the urge to pursue my dreams and open up my own business. I start running with this and then Saturn comes in and says, "Did you research proper tax laws, save up capital, or create a business strategy?"
Think of Saturn as the wise old man (often associated with a father figure) who is your guide and mentor through life, imparting sage advice. The goal of Saturn is slow and steady growth. You must learn the value of working hard so you may appreciate success when it comes your way. And it will!
Saturn is leaving Sagittarius and entering Capricorn to stay until December 20, 2020. Look to your birth chart to see what area of your life will experience the energy of Saturn. This will be an area of critical life lessons and growth for the next three years. So learn to embrace the limitations, the lessons, and the powerful success that Saturn will bring.
