This is how I found myself feeling after Saturn moved into Capricorn late last night. As I took a few quiet moments out to meditate before bed, I felt the shift immediately...and boy, did it feel good!
Part of this heightened sense of connection to Saturn's big move is because Saturn is still conjunct my Sagittarius Sun, giving me a sense of confidence, surety, and "calm, cool, and collected" that I can't say I've ever felt before. I sense the tangible physical blessings of this transit already on their way, feeling more connected to and at home in the physical world than before (and believe me when I say that grounding is not my strong point!).
Sagittarians, it's time to pat yourselves on the back - you made it. You faced the hard lessons, you grew, you got real about who you were and what you came here to do. Now you can carry the gifts of those lessons forward as you work toward manifesting the potentials of your deep digging as Saturn enters the sign of manifestation for the next three years.
Capricorns, you're up - it's your time to be reborn again, stronger and more confident and wise and resolute than ever before. Nobody can handle Saturn's lessons better than you, as Saturn is your ruling planet and are wholly attuned to its energies. You'll emerge from this transit a different person, more aligned with truth and values and a sense of purpose than ever before.
Regardless of whether Saturn is contacting personal planets in your birth chart now or not, we're all about to benefit immensely from this shift. Saturn is now in its home sign for the first time in about 30 years, bringing us back to lessons in maturity, physical manifestation, and acting as a catalyst for everyone to reap exactly what they've sown during the time between. And that's only bad news for those who have abused power or acted unjustly - the consequences of those actions will be stark wake-up calls, indeed.
It's said that the first 24-hours of a planet's shift into a sign is the most powerful time to set the tone for how the rest of the cycle unfolds in our lives. With Saturn in my 3rd House, I've been multi-tasking like a pro today, making business plans for the coming year, and my natural procrastination instincts are already fading away. Hallelujah!
Tune in to where you feel called to put your focus, time, and energy today. As the moon waxes in Capricorn, the light of Monday's new moon is carried on as the earliest potentials of those "new beginning seeds" begin to crack open slowly. It's a powerful time to begin formulating plans and taking action, no matter how small.
Saturn remains in Capricorn through December 17, 2020, except for its first dip into Aquarius from late March through mid-June 2020.
It's time to get real about our greatest aspirations and make them come to life; to build the most solid life foundations that we can; to connect to the gifts and wonder of the physical world in ways that benefit the all, perhaps even regaining lost connections to what we might call "old wisdom" - the wisdom in the rocks, trees, soil, waterways, all the ancient pillars of life and structures that support us throughout all time.
It's also the perfect opportunity to honor that which provides the foundation in our lives, and to create our own to make our dreams a reality. Look to the house that contains Capricorn in your birth chart to see where potential is about to come to live in the next three years (generate a free chart at www.astro.com, or book a reading with a qualified astrologer to take it even deeper).
