All Signs: In astrology, Saturn is the real deal. As it moves though your chart, it shows what part of your life is being tested. Saturn takes 29 years to travel though all 12 signs, so most of us feel its influence only twice in a certain area of our lives. Saturn is stern, tough love. (Like learning a stove is hot when you burned yourself as a kid.) Saturn rules time, boundaries, restrictions, limitations, dimensions and regulations. It also rules our teeth and our bones. (Hmmm, for some reason, the mention of bones reminds me of how tough it is to know what age is appropriate to tell your dog he’s adopted.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Continue working to get better organized. Relations with partners and close friends are excellent. Jupiter still brings you money and favours. (Including loans or mortgages.) Your ruler Mars pumps your energy, which dovetails with your ambitions. Meanwhile, Saturn is at the top of your chart for the next two years ushering in a period of culmination. It’s your time of harvest! The seeds you’ve planted in the last 29 years, especially in the last seven years, are ripening. Go with what works and forget about what doesn’t work. Michael Jordan said, “I’ve missed over 9000 shots in my career… I failed over and over and over again, and that’s why I succeed.”
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s still play city! Grab every chance to flirt, party, escape on a vacation, enjoy sports events and be involved in fun activities with kids. Life is upbeat and happy! Relations at work are solid and relations with partners and close friends are even better! Mars whets your appetite to travel and learn more, which is why some of you are thinking of signing up for a course. “Let’s learn a new language!” Meanwhile, for the next two years, Saturn is poised to get you performance ready. This is why it would be wise to listen to your impulse to take a course or learn something new. Saturn wants you to hone your skills and be the best you can be when it hits the top of your chart two years from now. Ideas?
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your focus on home and family continues with family discussions, DIY projects and home repairs. Venus promises fun getaways, romance and social diversions. Lucky Jupiter continues to boost your health and improve your job. Mars amps your sex life. (Remember sex? It’s between five and seven.) But the big influence for you is Saturn. It indicates your partner might earn less in the next two years. (Ouch.) Certainly, the resources of others might be cut off or less available. You have to come to terms with the values of someone else. This is a wake-up call about the degree to which you have to cooperate with and depend upon others.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’re still busy time with short trips, errands and increased reading and writing. Enjoy entertaining at home and redecorating your digs. Jupiter continues to bring opportunities for vacations, romance and the courage to be express yourself without fear or apology. (Love will expand the range of your experience and you will no longer hide or pretend.) Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to redefine yourself in your own terms. Partnerships might be difficult and coworkers might make demands; however, you want to experience yourself through one-to-one encounters with others, which is why it’s important to understand the nature of your closest relationships. What are your expectations of them and what are their expectations of you?
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
“Show me the money!” You’re thinking about earnings, cash flow, major purchases and how to boost your income. Life is good and you appreciate the beauty of your daily surroundings and how much love there is in your daily world. (Gosh.) Lucky Jupiter continues to bring you opportunities to improve where you live or find bigger and better digs or make money through real estate. However, Saturn, the stern taskmaster, is kicking things up a notch. Oh yeah. Saturn is putting you to work for the next few years because it’s preparing you for a debut. Since 2005, you have been figuring out who you are, where you should live, and what you should do. If you do it right – kudos will be yours in two years!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This continues to be a powerful time because the Sun and Mercury are in your sign. Go after what you want because doors will open for you! Venus attracts money to you, and at the same time, tempts you to buy pretty things. Mars amps your sex urge and desire to have fun while lucky Jupiter boosts your optimism and appreciation for who you are and what you have. However, Saturn makes you more serious about life. It’s as if everything in your life has to have a teaching purpose. Children might be an increased responsibility. Even romance is with someone older. You’re more disciplined about your creative activity, while you wonder what you really want to be when you grow up. (“Exercise? I thought you said extra fries.”)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Since your birthday is approaching, this means your personal year is coming ending. It also means this is the time to think about your personal goals for your year ahead. Goals with deadlines get things done. Goals give you focus. Goals help you to make decisions. Now for some information to help you with those goals: Jupiter continues to boost your earnings, while Saturn demands that you secure your home base. Address home repairs. (“I was hoping if I ignored you, you’d go away.”) In the next two years, whatever you have been putting up will have to be faced. It’s time to build a solid foundation because this is a time of new beginnings.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You’re popular! Tra , tra la, it is to laugh! Because you benefit from your interaction with others – enjoy the company of friends. Join clubs and groups. (Younger people are involved in your life more than usual.) This is also an excellent time to set goals for your future. Bounce some of your ideas off someone to get their feedback. Mars makes you direct and forthright in all your communications now, which is saying a lot for you! In the bigger picture, Saturn will orchestrate a change of residence or a change of jobs in the next two to three years. This is almost a certainty. Get ready.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Hold the phone! The Sun is still casting you in a flattering light, which is why you impress everyone so easily. However, since you look so fantastic in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs – use this! Demand the advantage! Relations with friends, especially creative people, are very warm. Jupiter continues to deepen the spiritual dimensions of your life. Naturally, the big news is that Saturn in your House of Earnings means it’s important to discover what you truly value. You might think it’s material wealth, but ironically, material wealth might keep you from discovering your true values. (Whaaat?) The next two years are the best time to organize your finances and make sure what you think you want is what you really want.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You want to get outta Dodge. You’re hungry for adventure, travel and new experiences! This is a great week to study, teach, write, publish and explore opportunities in medicine, the law, publishing and the media. Venus at the top of your chart makes you charming and diplomatic. (A romance with a boss might begin.) Mars revs your energy, which is why you should hit the gym or get more physical exercise to blow off pent-up steam. Meanwhile, Saturn is your ruler. This is why your reputation matters to you. You want respect. Because Saturn is in your sign for the first time since 1989-90, you’re beginning a new journey in which you will reinvent yourself. A thrilling future awaits you!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is an intense, passionate time! (Money and hot sex!) Travel for pleasure appeals. You attract opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. (Don’t ignore these.) Jupiter at the top of your chart is a terrific blessing. This means you have the best chance in over a decade to put your name up in lights. At the very least, you impress bosses this year. But something major is going on behind the scenes – namely Saturn. You’re entering a similar cycle to what occurred in 1989-90, which was a time of giving up things and letting go. It starts by going through cupboards, garages and storage spaces to get rid of what you no longer need. Sound familiar?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You need more rest or sleep. Factoid. (Go to bed.) Actually, this could be timely because romance is memorable and affectionate. (Oh yeah!) Mars makes you competitive with someone, especially a group or a physical competition. Jupiter continues to bring you opportunities to travel and explore publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. Saturn strives for a balance between satisfying the needs and demands of others versus satisfying your own needs and demands. (After all, you count, too!) You need to balance your needs versus the needs of others.
