All Signs: Saturn takes 30 years to go through all 12 signs. It is finally moving into Capricorn to stay until the end of 2020. (This last occurred 1989–1990 and 1959– 1961.) Saturn is the Great Teacher. It encourages self discipline. It makes us accept responsibility for ourselves. It teaches conservation, preparation and the benefits of playing by the rules. Because Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, it will be “at home” in that sign, which is why it will restore order! It hates waste and excess. It removes what we no longer need. It rewards hard work and perseverance with long-lasting benefits. Saturn is also authentic. It hates phonies. Therefore, be sincere. Be truthful. Leslie Nielsen was right. “Truth hurts …maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with the seat missing … but it hurts.”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Saturn’s move into Capricorn is super big news for your sign because it means that you are finally entering your time of harvest. This means you will be reaping the benefits of the seeds you planted since 2010 (and really, since 2003). Traditionally, harvest is when you reap your rewards. Be proud of your hard-earned achievements! It might mean a time of graduation; it could mean a huge promotion or a chance to be self-employed. For some it means marriage or the birth of a longed for baby. Whatever takes place will be important for you and it’s something that will make you proud. It will also be something that others will see is happening in your life. Life won’t be just a bowl of cherries because this is also a time of heavy responsibilities. But you will be kinda pleased and smug.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The fact that Saturn is moving into Capricorn is good news for your sign because Saturn is will be in your fellow Earth sign giving you support. (Like fixing the third leg on your three-legged stool.) As mentioned above in All Signs, Saturn rewards hard work with long-lasting benefits for the future. In your case, your time of harvest will begin in 2020. This means that until then, you must prepare as well as you possibly can to be in a position to take advantage of the opportunities that you will have then. Ideally, you can prepare by getting further training or education. Or perhaps you can travel to get a more sophisticated understanding of the world? Map out a plan. Get performance ready!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Saturn isn’t nebulous like Neptune. Saturn defines things. It’s about construction, definition, limitation, restriction and responsibilities. For example, Saturn rules time – the notion that we can measure “time” in increments like minutes and hours. (Think what it must have been like to meet a friend for lunch in the Bronze Age. “Let’s get together before it gets really cold.”) Saturn’s journey through Capricorn in the next two years means you must rely more on yourself and less on others for financial support. This does not mean you will earn less. It means you have to rely on yourself. It’s tough love. You will emerge from this process ready to meet your time of harvest with grit and confidence. “Think fast, Pilgrim!”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You are entering a significant time in your life because Saturn will oppose you now for the first time since around 1989-1990. This represents a culmination in your life of the last 14 years. Since around 2003, you reinvented yourself and figured out who you were and what you wanted. But this was a more personal, internal development. Starting this year, you will become more public – more “out there.” You will be empowered because you’re going to go for the brass ring with focus and direction. However, this new “empowered you” might be threatening to others. Hence, the next two years will be a testing time for relationships. Fear not – those that are meant to last will endure.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
As Saturn changes signs, it’s an indication you are entering a two-year window where you will bust your buns because it’s time to show the world what you can really do. You might even feel that your effectiveness as a human being is being tested. Conserve your energy. Treat your body like a tool because you will need it. Whatever work you accomplish in the next two years will lead to your debut in 2020. “Look Ma, no hands!” No more excuses. If you don’t accomplish what you want to – it’s either because you don’t know how or you won’t finish. Scary when you realize that it all comes down to that, isn’t it?
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Like Taurus, you will benefit by Saturn in Capricorn because you are also fellow Earth sign. This means that you will be strengthened and more focused in the next two years. You will more easily achieve your objectives. However, you might have increased responsibilities with children. You might also choose to downplay a lot of “fun stuff” because you feel you should be more responsible and “take care of business.” If you work in the arts, you’ll find it easy to practice technique and hone your skills in the next two years because you will have self-discipline. Many of you might be involved in a romance with someone older or of an age difference. “Oh hi, Mrs. Robinson.”
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Around 2010, whether you were aware of it or not, you began a journey of reinventing yourself with respect to how you define yourself with family, friends, your career and the world in general. Now, that job is done. You know who you are. You certainly know who you aren’t. This means it’s time to focus on home and your private life because you want to secure a refuge you can count on. This is why some of you might move. It is also why most of you will fix up where you live so that you have a stable anchor for yourself and your family. “Tote that barge! Lift that bale!”
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
As Saturn moves into Capricorn, it indicates that in the next two years, there is a strong possibility you will have a change of residence or a change of jobs or both. This roller coaster element to your life will be introduced because you are now putting the final touches to the process of redefining the “new you” – a process that began in 2012. In order to do this, Saturn will sometimes plunge you into a totally different milieu thereby forcing you to really hear, really see and really communicate with fresh energy to everyone around you. Let’s see what happens!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
More than any other sign, you are future oriented. You wonder what’s coming around the next bend. But in order to make intelligent decisions about a fast-changing future – you have to know what your values are. You have to know what really matters to you. If you don’t know what matters, how can you make a wise choice? In the next two years, this is what you will learn. You’re going to get a better understanding of your values so that you will know how to make future moves in a nanosecond. “Work in an underground parking lot? Sorry – not my thing. I need blue sky overhead!”
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Saturn is in your sign for the first time since Nov.1988-Feb. 1991. This is an eventful time in your life. You have been downsizing and letting go of anything that is no longer relevant. (Some of you are still in this process.) But in the bigger picture, it means that you are now about to set off on a new 30 year journey. This is big stuff! Did this happen to you around 1991-92? In the first seven years of this journey, you will reinvent yourself. And so it begins. Think about what you want to take on this journey and what you want to leave behind.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
People are finally realizing how talented and capable you are! And while you will enjoy great press this year and people will admire your accomplishments, you will start mulling over decisions about what is really worth keeping and what is not. It will begin in small ways. You will start going through closets, cupboards, garages and storage spaces getting rid of what you no longer need. You will sell it, recycle it or give it away. You have thet sense that you want to be more in control of your life in practical terms. Good for you! (Are you keeping those golf clubs?)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You are pleased with how things are going in your life. You have a lot of responsibilities but you are also reaping the rewards of past efforts. One of the challenges you will face in the next few years is learning how to balance the demands that others make on your time with the demands that you would personally like to make on your own time. In other words, you have to put yourself in the equation as well! You can’t just be a people pleaser. After all, you count, too! So your challenge is to find that subtle balance between your obligations and your own integrity. Are you up for it?
