Saturn turns direct [2 Capricorn 33]
– September 6, 2018 (12:09 GMT+1)
We’re currently in a period of time when key planets are starting to turn direct and flick the switch back on. Mind planet Mercury was the first to turn direct on August 19th, then came action planet Mars on August 27th and today, it’s Saturn’s turn on September 6th.
Saturn is the planet which represents the boundaries of time and is connected to authority, discipline and slow, steady growth. Wherever you find Saturn in your horoscope, this is where lessons can be learned and sometimes the hard way.
Saturn is currently in Capricorn, its sign of rulership and this Saturn is capable, enduring and wants to build strong foundations that are lasting and permanent. The image that sprung to mind of Saturn turning direct in Capricorn was rebuilding the forest. Capricorn is one of the earth signs.
Saturn turns direct at 2 degrees Capricorn. Even though it takes a while to get going, you might find that cogs start to fall into place or you sense a burden easing. Shift your gaze to the future and away from the past and consider where you’re heading. This is particularly important if you have key planets/angles in the early degrees of earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) signs.
Saturn is going to be sweeping along majestically behind Pluto in Capricorn, clearing up its mess. Pluto razes to the ground and does business in corrupt and underhand ways. Pluto’s realm is the underworld, in all senses of the word: underground, the realm of the dead and the world of crime.
Saturn restores order and brings authority and decent values to the mix. He’s in it for the long haul and Saturn finally catches up with Pluto in January 2020. Decide what you’re ready to commit to and where strong foundations are needed in your life.
Saturn’s change of direction coincides with Mercury’s move into its sign of rulership Virgo on the same day, September 6th. Mercury in Virgo is the analyst, the list-maker, the perfectionist.
Then, on September 7th, there’s a Grand Earth Trine involving Mercury in Virgo with Saturn in Capricorn and innovative Uranus in Taurus. This is perfect for ideas, brainstorming, planning and nailing down the details.
Journal in hand, get writing. Read the small print in your guide to life. Seek out the patterns in your story. Put in the necessary work to create the results you want.
It’s onwards and upwards on steady feet, slowly and surely. Take the lessons from the past and use them as you build for the future. Appreciate what you have and make the ordinary extraordinary.
