“Wings are like dreams. Before each flight, a bird takes a small jump, a leap of faith, believing that its wings will work. That jump can only be made with rock solid feet.”
― J.R. Rim

If ever there was a time to make a jump “with rock sold feet” it is now with Saturn in the serious sign of Capricorn for the next two and one-half years. The energy shifted on December 20, 2017, when Saturn moved into Capricorn, where it will stay until March 23, 2020.

Saturn’s two and one-half year transit of Sagittarius has been a crazy quilt of moving quickly forward only to be pushed back to the starting line through its retrograde motion. In line with its ruler, Jupiter, Sagittarius is an optimistic, exuberant sign of possibilities. As a mutable fire sign Sagittarius wants to move forward quickly without restriction. Horizons and limitations are just something to be ignored or transcended.

Saturn is different. It is the planet of limitations, boundaries and hard work. It is a sober, realistic planet that puts up cautionary signs to protect you from going overboard. This juxtaposition of energy has not always been easy to navigate. Questions arise.

Should I go full speed ahead toward this new thing that I want to do?
Or do I need to be more careful, pull in my expectations and stay where I am?

Jupiter ruled Sagittarius says “go for it.” Saturn in Capricorn says “no, you need to go slowly and carefully.” There is danger ahead.

Saturn loves to be in Capricorn, which is its home sign. It feels comfortable, grounded and strong in Capricorn. Its impetus to action is in tune with the grounded, cautious nature of the sign of Capricorn.

So the answer to whether to “go for it” or to hold back is both. It is definitely time to go-for-it, but you must do so in a serious, structured way. The seat-of-the-pants way that was so comfortable in Sagittarius, just won’t cut it in Capricorn.

Saturn in Capricorn favors business and restructuring, reordering and categorizing to make things more efficient, organized and productive. Solid career gains can be made during this transit, but only after you have put in the hard work and effort. Any career moves made now should be made with the long-term view in mind. The energy now is not about get-rich-quick schemes. Rather, it is about making well-thought-out plans for the future by following the steps needed to achieve your goals.

The banking system, big business, and government are all ruled by Saturn and Capricorn.
The importance of ethics, honesty and accountability will be front and center during Saturn’s journey through Capricorn. Saturn rules age and aging. With Saturn in Capricorn we need to take the threats to Social Security and Medicare seriously.

With Pluto also in Capricorn there is a lot of energy manifesting behind the scenes to bring everything to a head when the time is right. We will see this playing out during the next 2-1/2 years. When Saturn joins Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn in January of 2020, we could see a big shift regarding these matters.

It is a great time to restructure your finances, start or add to your retirement savings account(s) and to make a budget that you can stick to over the long-term. When Uranus moves into Taurus in May of 2018, the entire monetary and business system could be shaken up. Make sure that your investments are as secure as possible before that time. We are likely to see the fallout from Saturn’s square to Uranus at that time.

    What is the effect of retrograde saturn in 7th house in capricorn for cancer ascendant? Does it stands for multi marriages?

    • Ruby

      Saturn in the 7th house can indicate that you have lessons to learn from partnerships of all kinds. In other words, partnerships are your “earth lessons.” Because of this, it could indicate multiple marriages until you learn more about how to maintain a successful relationship. Those with Saturn in the 7th will often gravitate towards relationships with those much older than themselves.

      Retrograde Saturn means that you are a slow learner or “late bloomer” in that realm. People with retrograde Saturn in the 7th house will often not marry until later in life. If Saturn goes direct by secondary progression, it will mitigate the retrograde influence.

      However, because Saturn rewards those who do the hard work of learning and growing from its lessons, it can also indicate a stable, long-term marriage or partnership is part of your life story.
