Hello world!

This site will bring you some interesting and timely posts about what is going on in the Heavens — I love studying astrology, and I enjoy passing on the information I have gleaned from the moving planets in aspect to the sun and moon and each other.  Even if you feel this kind of post isn’t for you — if you give it a try, you might find it amusing, informative, downright accurate, or just a good way to pass a couple of lazy minutes on your computer. 

I have found over the years that much of what goes on in the ether does affect the happenings here on planet Earth — much depends on the sign you were born under and what aspects are in your own personal natal chart.  You can get your natal chart free from many sites on the internet — and learning where your sun and moon are located, along with the sign that was rising at the time of your birth will give you a heads up as to what cycle you are now going through. 

There are many cycles that the planets bring to us, Saturn, for instance (I call it the “learning” planet — has a cycle of approximately 28 to 30 years) — by the time we are 30 we have experienced the planets influence in each house of our natal chart.  It’s no wonder that the Hippies of the 60’s quipped “Don’t trust anyone over 30” — we are changed because of our having been through the many and varied, sometimes difficult lessons of Saturn throughout our charts.

Also there is a magnificent opposition from the planet Uranus at age 42 (give or take a year) that challenges us — can we say “mid-life crisis”?  This year is often fraught with changes that we might be less that anxious to have happen.  Yet the planet Uranus doesn’t bring a change unless it is going to build us a newer and stronger foundation.  It is part of the building blocks of our journey throughout this lifetimes path. 

We can accept and grow with the help of the Universal forces, or we can challenge the energies and find ourselves at odds with our true and natural path.  In astrology there is a saying “As above — so below” … this doesn’t mean we have no free will — it only shows us that by following the natural harmony of the galaxy, we can flourish and meet all of our expectations — or we can rale against the forces and be held accountable in many formidable ways.  The stars may impel, but they do not compel any actions or beliefs. 

The world is our oyster, there is so much for the taking, so much beauty, knowledge, fun and happiness to be garnered from our lifetime here, if we but choose to be aware and partake of its bounty.

I hope you will join me in opening up the mysteries and secrets of the Universe as we all travel on this tiny blue planet called Earth — it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get it right, we have the choice, the right, and the means to become our best selves, and to find our place in the Universe.  Lets all gear up and promise ourselves we will choose to become the ultimate human being we are meant to be — awesomeness is an option — let it be you!

Welcome fellow searchers for the truth — it is out there…



New Moon in Capricorn Reminder — January 16th 2018

Use the Cardinal Earthy energy of our New Moon in Capricorn to jump start those resolutions that have fallen by the wayside already, and bring attention to those issues that aren’t as “appealing” simply because they are just normal needs we really should be addressing. Capricorn is such a practical and pragmatic sign that we should tap into those mundane chores that will give us some realistic returns on our efforts.

For instance, we all could use some extra money — think about ways you could increase your income with talent, time or expertise. Need home repairs, perhaps you can swap or barter your time for your carpenter’s skills. Can you bake, knit or sew, know about plumbing, love to take care of your car, can find anything online? Are you a tech savvy person, so many folks need help with keeping their computers running smoothly. Start with friends, and the word will spread by word-of-mouth — you may find a nice sideline activity.

Whatever basics you may need to be repaired, refreshed, or redone — try to find a way to have these annoying “chores” taken care of by someone who also can use some of your skills.

The New Moon in Capricorn is bringing a plethora of practical, down-home energy, that will infuse us with the need to catch up on those minor but annoying things that have been bugging us for months —  just get them done!

Bottom line — write out your affirmations, wishes and desires with an eye to the ordinary and everyday situations that we tend to ignore. Once they are off your plate, you’ll feel so much better!

The New Moon in Capricorn crests at 9:18 PM EST on the 16th! Get those affirmations written down ASAP!

New Moon in Capricorn — January 16th 2018

This month’s New Moon crests at 26 degrees, in the Cardinal Earth sign Capricorn at 9:18 PM EST. As the first New Moon of the year, we can use this Earthy energy to spur us on to any and all new projects, and/or help with any resolutions that may have already fallen by the wayside. I have suggested that folks don’t actually make any resolutions until the New Moon, as there is so much positive and beneficial energy spewing forth for us to use, with this astrological event. As with any New Moon we can, if we wish, use the Universe’s help by sending out our most sought after affirmations into the Galaxial ether.

Our thoughts have substance and a real impact on our psyche, also our inner conversations with ourselves, and can be manifested by simply stating our needs, and writing down our wishes during the transit of the New Moon. This is just one of many avenues we can explore with the help of the movement of the Planets. Our Zodiac charts give us a map as it were, of the pluses and minuses in our lives, and we can build our journey in a positive manner by using the power of those areas that will bring us the most constructive pathway. Yes, we all have some challenges to face — but with knowledge, come answers that can help us avoid many of the pitfalls that may occur. Of course, Karma will play its part in all of our lives, with those people who we must resolve issues from past existences. However, it is our opportunity and responsibility to be aware of the nuances that are present in our life at this time. We can overcome any negative areas that might be holding us back, with fortitude and intention.

Since the New Moon is in the sign Capricorn, the more practical and stable our requests or affirmations are will be more likely to come to fruition. If we feel we are ready for a raise, a new position in our company, to buy a first home, or become parents — these can be addressed when writing out your wishes. Capricorn being a Cardinal sign has immense power and determination. When a Capricorn decides to plan and execute a goal, you can be sure that eventually they will achieve their objective. It can be somewhat intimidating to watch a resolute Capricorn going for their ultimate accomplishment.

All practical and forward moving affirmations will be apropos and compatible with Capricorn’s New Moon. Job related, money issues, housing wishes, finding better relationships within the family, being able to assess your true abilities, seeing where your talents lie, and finding practical ways of handling your affairs. All of these and any other lifestyle changes you might want to make are within the realm of Capricorn’s grasp. Find those things that would enhance and improve your life right now and write (in clear terms) just what it is you want. The best time to write out your affirmations is within the 24 hour time-span after the New Moon crests.

Do this for yourself and for your loved ones, there is magic and wonder in the Universe — and we can tap into the magnificent treasure trove to recreate our lives.  May the Force by With You!



Lady Venus Enters Aquarius — January 17th 2018

For our Lady Venus, moving into the sign Aquarius on the 17th at 8:44 PM EST, is as if a breeze has suddenly freshened and has blown away all of the proper, patient and practical ethos of Capricorn! Lady Venus enjoys her transits through Aquarius — especially after her genteel stay within Capricorn’s limited boundaries. Indeed, our Lady Venus is more than ready to let her innovative, imaginative, inspired and most intrinsically artistic vibrations erupt into this new realm. Although always creative in any sign, whence in Aquarius it would seem all bets are off, and She can allow her most incendiary ideas to be unleashed. We must use this flash of Lady Venus’ unique outlook on the arts, fashion, life and love quickly, as She moves into more spiritual and soulful Pisces on February 10th.

Aquarius is an Airy-Fixed sign, often misconstrued as a Water sign because of her symbol the Water-bearer! In this case, the symbolism of water is related more to mental acuity and emotional undercurrents. I know! Sometimes confusion reigns within the Astrological community because boundaries and margins  have become less clear over the centuries, and meanings and symbolism have been blurred by the passage of time. That being said, it seems to me that sometimes our Aquarian brethren do seem to pick up some watery imaginings, and spiritual gleanings from deeper sources. Complex, quirky, marching to their own drummer — our Aquarian family, friends and acquaintances may often seem to “see” things within their own dreamy and visionary viewpoint. They have a special and amazing ability to cut to the chase in many instances, when things are confusing. So many geniuses, artists, experts, philosophers, prophets, and scientists  are listed under this sign. Never underestimate our Aquarian brethren, they have depths within their essence that have yet to be plumbed.

On the 20th you might find a companionable dinner time date goes remarkably well as Lady Venus and Saturn seem to be in an agreeable mood. Later in the evening of the 27th Lady Venus and Neptune find themselves in good company and find a way to be of help to others. At lunchtime on the 31st, Venus and Jupiter share some space and pleasant conversation, good food, and a comfortable aura surrounds everyone. On Friday February 2nd, (Ground Hog Day), the afternoon hours are enhanced by a common thread, as Lady Venus and Pluto share a special moment. After midnight on the 4th, Lady Venus and Jupiter aren’t getting along, if out in the wee hours protect yourself from those who may have been indulging a bit too much, and be aware of your surroundings — don’t let your guard down. Early evening on the 6th brings Lady Venus and Uranus together, possibly introducing a free-spirited acquaintance into your realm, you may find their original ideas and slightly eccentric manner exciting.

Regretfully, we must say goodbye to our unconventional Lady Venus in Aquarius on February 10th when she surreptitiously disappears into mystical and transcendent Pisces, where she becomes a beacon of spiritual light and refinement.

Hint – Find your Lady Venus in Aquarius love having her palm read, in a psychic book store, while attending a nouveau art show, watching the latest Star Trek movie, taking her niece/nephew to the newest Pixar film, eating at an ethnic restaurant, teaching tai-chi to seniors, at a cooking class, finding treasures at a garage sale, putting a purple streak in her hair, and dancing the night away at a retro disco!




January’s Astrological Activity — 2018

Our New Year Day 2018, starts off with a doozy of a Full Moon in Cancer, at 11 degrees of the sign! Those who may have imbibed a bit too much on New Year’s Eve, may be experiencing the hangover of a lifetime! Cancer being a Cardinal Water sign will enhance the elements that seem to exacerbate the effects of too much alcohol. Perhaps forewarned is forearmed, and those who might indulge in the spirits of the vine, may decide to  monitor their intake. Just sayin’! The Full Moon in Cancer crests at 9:25 PM EST New Year’s Day, so the pressure will be building during the entire day. On a good note, the Moon in Cancer will provide a good basis for making our New Year’s Resolutions — and being a Cardinal sign there will be more positive intentions in the ether. The sign Cancer has to do with our loved ones, parents, siblings and any extended family. So perhaps making sure the ties-that-bind are always in good condition would be one way to use this energy. Also any intentions to volunteer, connect with those distant relations, find new ways to eat in a healthy manner, and always being the best role model for the younger set can come to fruition! Of course, the New Moon is always the most auspicious for making resolutions or affirmations — the New Moon crests on the 16th at 9:18 PM EST in the sign Capricorn, a determined and practical sign that can get things done.

Also this month on the 31st there will be another Full Moon (Blue Moon) lunar eclipse in Leo at 8:27 AM EST that will get our proverbial embers glowing! It looks like 2018 is going to be a busy year!

On the 2nd of this month, Uranus in Aries will be Stationary Direct after several months of Retrograding. As Uranus begins to move in a forward direction, we will begin to feel some ease, as the more positive vibrations of this unique Planet come to the fore. Creativity, light-bulb ideas, inspiration, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and new plans will all be able to be initiated in the coming weeks. Uranus in Aries will help to bring knowledge heretofore hidden and will work with the current Planetary aspects, to try to improve those areas that are lacking in our human potential and evolution.

Jupiter in Scorpio is also digging up those areas that are corrupt and hidden, however with its beautiful aspect to Neptune in Pisces, we may see a world-wide revolution of loving kindness. Our psyches are being stimulated in the highest form, and if we but listen to our moral inner-voice, we will hear the call of the Universe for us to love one another unconditionally. Hear the Clarion Call from the highest source, and answer with your best intentions and grace. Business may be boosted by Jupiter’s largess, and if you are working with the young, you may find that with your experience, mentoring those individuals who have talents beyond their years, is time well spent.  Saturn’s two-and-a-half years in Capricorn will indeed impact all of us with its insistence on honor, duty and responsibility. We must never ignore those lessons that Saturn wishes to impart to us, these are the Universe’s instructions to us in no uncertain terms. They are the cornerstone of our pathway throughout this lifetime, and we rebuff them at our peril. Saturn will teach, and we must learn!

On the 3rd of the month, the Moon is in fiery Leo, and at lunch time a beautiful aspect between Lady Venus in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces may provide a peaceful and comforting atmosphere for a pleasant interval with creative and helpful folks surrounding us. The 6th which gets us by the shadow time of Rx Mercury also provides us with a dinner time connection between Mercury in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries that might bring interesting conversation and brilliant ideas into the mix. Combine this pleasant aspect with Mars meeting up with Jupiter in Scorpio shortly after, giving us the impetus to work on any project that we have confidence in working on that will bring us to our goals. Monday the 8th seems to bring us back to reality after all the holiday excesses, with work that has to be done, however the aspects give us lots of help as the Sun and Lady Venus attract Jupiter’s largess. Later in the day Mars adds its energy so you can complete the day with all your projects finished. The next day also  maintains the positive input as overnight your dreams gave you some ideas that could help move your agenda forward. By evening you will feel you satisfied all your appointed tasks and have earned a well-deserved rest. Mercury enters Capricorn after midnight on the 11th, allowing us to present our ideas in a professional and articulate manner. The 13th brings an interesting meeting between Lady Venus and Uranus, you may have plans for a free-wheeling day skiing or snowboarding. The 14th the Sun and Uranus have a spat, in the early afternoon and you may find yourself going against the your usual demeanor, and want to let your hair down. Late night on the 15th may find you restless and not able to settle down, instead of tossing and turning all night, get up and read, watch TV or find a way to use that excess energy! The 16th brings our New Moon in Capricorn — an auspicious day to write out your affirmations or perhaps seriously think about your New Year’s Resolutions! The 19th in the early evening Mercury  and Neptune stimulate your imagination and creativity, however, you may just want to go out dancing! A quiet week ensues, but on the 24th Mercury and Pluto meet up in the middle of the afternoon, and make you begin to think about office politics and perhaps backstabbing. At the rush hour on the 25th, Mercury and Jupiter might create a busier morning commute than usual, but the protective aura of Jupiter will get you through unscathed. Mars will enter the sign Sagittarius on the 26th bringing a lighthearted upbeat energy to all of us. Late on the 27th and into the morning of the 28th there is some erratic energy that might interfere with your sleep. You may wake up feeling restless and unsettled for the rest of the day. Winding down to the end of the month we are once again facing a second Full Moon (Blue Moon), at 11 degrees of the sign Leo. So we end the month on a note of being connected to family, but still wanting the ability to go our own way.

January is a super active month to begin our New Year of 2018, all of the possibilities of growth, development, and evolution are at out fingertips! We only have to tap into the massive amount of buoyant energy swirling around in the ether, to give us that extra boost in our confidence and self-reliance! We can accomplish all of our goals with a positive mindset, an optimistic outlook and perhaps a few flashes of inspiration, encouragement and motivation. The year 2018 can bring our dearest dreams and desires to fruition, with a little good luck, blessings from a Higher Power, and good old American ingenuity!







Jupiter in Scorpio Through Zodiac Houses Five to Eight

As Jupiter traverses this Watery sign it will impact the Zodiac House in your Chart with its gifts of expansion and growth. Jupiter the Greater Benevolent always wants to bring good tidings — with Scorpio in the mix, there may be some surprises in store that will affect our emotions. We all will have a year, as Jupiter in Scorpio transits through the Zodiac, to use those special benefits and opportunities that Jupiter will bring, however  perhaps something we have ignored in the past will be brought out into the open, as Scorpio enjoys bringing to light any hidden mysteries or intrigue.

Fifth Zodiac House — In the Fifth Zodiac House Jupiter in Scorpio can and will bring out any clandestine ongoings, whether emotional or business. Scorpio doesn’t appreciate underhandedness in any venue, and will dig deep to uproot any unethical activities. Usually we enjoy the activities of the Fifth House realm — romance, children, all forms of entertainment, games of chance, hobbies and creative talents — however it also can contain addiction, pursuing self-harming activity, and taking unnecessary risks.

Jupiter is all about wanting more, better and more opulent — with Scorpio in tow we may find ourselves wanting many things we shouldn’t have, possibly can’t have, and would be better off without. Still Jupiter in Scorpio will find excuses for why you should pursue some high and mighty goals. If you have planned for some time to attain a magnificent item — then it may come to fruition, however, if this is a new idea, desire, or passion — you may want to take a step back from the precipice to re-evaluate your true needs. Sometimes, this combo can bring about a bit of an ego boost where those who are so influenced will begin to disregard their common sense and actual financial position.

Now to the more positive vibrations of Jupiter in Scorpio in the Fifth House — you may finally get up the nerve to ask your significant other for their hand in marriage! Those who have been longing for a child might find this is a good time for them to give themselves a chance at parenthood. We can grow closer to our loved ones while Jupiter is in this House, our senses will be tuned to their needs and desires.

If you have a creative bent, now might be the time to bring your work to someone who can help you get it out into the public domain. Inventive and original, this can be a fortuitous time for you to fine-tune that idea and perhaps find a backer who believes in you. Planning that once-in-a-lifetime vacation, adventure, or journey — Jupiter in Scorpio will open the door to opportunities that might not happen soon again.

Opposite the Eleventh House of friendship and social contacts and groups or clubs, you may find that your social life picks up and you could meet a few new people who turn out to be true friends. Take advantage of any invitations and think about entertaining in your own home. Life can be fun!

Sixth Zodiac House — Our Sixth Zodiac House is so very important, covering our health, diet and those things that are necessary for us to have and enjoy a good life. Herein lies your day-to-day work, your co-workers, and anyone who does work for you. Also, your smaller pets are included here (we all know how they can have a positive effect our health), and any dependents you are responsible in caring for. With Jupiter in Scorpio in this House, you will probably feel a sense of well-being, however, you must be aware of any underlying problems and be sure to follow up on any abnormalities, even just excessive tiredness.

This year will be a banner year to get in shape — with the help of mighty Jupiter — the caveat here is not to overdo in the beginning and get burnt out before benefits actually begin. Plan a good workout schedule doing something you enjoy! Don’t try to go to the gym if you absolutely hate the atmosphere — take walks, play golf, go swimming, join a moderate form of exercise — tai chi or yoga where you can progress at your own pace. Find that area where you feel comfortable and still manage to get some physical benefits.

Jupiter in Scorpio will be digging deep into any deficiencies that are affecting your overall good health. It also will be monitoring any pets and/or dependents that are in your care. If you have an older pet or are taking care of an older person — you may have to be aware of any changes in their usual nature. The Sixth House is opposite the Twelfth House of self-undoing and hospitals, prisons, and personal limitations. If you have a Planet in the Twelfth House it will at some point be opposite Jupiter in Scorpio, and that could lead to health issues, depending on the many aspects that could be involved. There could be throat and neck problems that could arise. Being aware of the beginning of a difficulty will give you an advantage in getting help early.

The blessings of Jupiter in Scorpio are more protective than weakening, and will help to bolster your immune system. Healthy living with good food, exercise, enough sleep, a sense of service, and control will help to bring you to a more healthful place within the year ahead. Working with the movement of the Planets will ensure that you find the best way to live a long and successful life.

Seventh Zodiac House — Jupiter in Scorpio can bring a plethora of issues to the Seventh Zodiac House as it relates to our partners whether business or marriage. Scorpio is such a determined fixed sign, and also a very emotional sign, that there may be some over-the-top requests, decisions, or desires that might require some kind of compromise to keep the status-quo in check. You may find that someone you do business with has decided to demand some kind of kickback, not necessarily monetary, but some “sweetening” of the pot! You may not want to do business with this kind of burden cutting into your own profit or ability to keep your business running smoothly. It may be that quality is an issue, or that you are getting less product for the same money. Whatever the underlying difficulty, it is something that you must deal with, and determine just how much you are willing to bend. You may decide to find someone else who maintains your standards in order to sustain your own idea of fairness and impartiality.

With domestic decisions, there might be someone who wants what they want — and they want it now! If you are in a long term relationship — this may be something you have dealt with before, however, if this is a fairly new connection, you may want to take some time to decide exactly how much you are willing to compromise to keep the liaison going. Scorpio is a Fixed Water sign, and as such has a lot of ideas that are sacrosanct to them. It is difficult to change their minds, even with a patient and step-by-step strategy that tries to explain your own outlook and why this is not the way to go about whatever is the sticking point.

On a positive note, you may find a surfiet of those who would like to partner up with you — Scorpio’s are loyal and devoted partners, parents and friends — they do have some priorities that may not always sit well with others. Determined, hard-working, usually well-informed, and willing to go to the ends of the Earth for their loved ones, there is a lot to like about our Scorpio brethren.

What you don’t want to do during a Jupiter in Scorpio transit of this house is to get entangled in a relationship that is negative and doesn’t bring you the joy you deserve. If intensity, depth, and desire are things that you want in a relationship, you may be perfect for our generous Jupiter in Scorpio mate. Their feelings aren’t always on their sleeves, but they feel deeply and will not give up on anyone easily. This can be a once in a lifetime karmic connection that will endure year after year.

Eighth Zodiac House — Jupiter in Scorpio will be right at home here in the Eighth House which is Scorpio’s natural home base. Indeed ruling regeneration, death and taxes — Jupiter in Scorpio will feel a sense of comfort. Jupiter in Scorpio may bring some intense times as someone in your family may be having health issues, or an ailing parent might need to be in some kind of long-term care facility. However, Jupiter always seems to keep an umbrella of protection over those under stress. There may be a light at the end of the tunnel that turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

Within this House, there is the potential of an inheritance, estate matters, and also tax issues. Jupiter will be a beneficent guardian over any financial, bereavement or monetary matters that may ensue. Family secrets are often kept in this House, and you might find a long-lost relation that you never knew you had, and/or you might find other questions you had will finally be answered. Being frugal, loyal, and helpful to those in need will always keep you in Jupiter’s good graces — and after this transit passes you may look back and realize how much you have grown in knowledge, wisdom and love.

Keep up on any financial matters that may be handed to you during this transit, and be prepared to answer for any expenditures or deficits. Make sure you maintain detailed records of any and all duties, taxes, other disbursements and payments you have had to make, and all will be well.

Jupiter in Scorpio is an intense and in-depth transit that can bring us some insight into our own lives, our inner resources, and our ability to endure. Jupiter is always willing to give us the benefit of the doubt and doesn’t judge our actions. However, Scorpio is more unforgiving when it comes to doing the right thing and may not be as generous as Jupiter might want. Together they will be giving us a run for our money and for our souls.

Lady Venus Enters Capricorn — December 25th 2017

Lady Venus will enter the composed sign of Capricorn on December 25th at 12:26 AM EST. Beginning a rather short sprint, until She enters the quirky and creative sign of Aquarius on January 17th at 8:44 PM EST.

After experiencing the adventurous and scintillating vigor of Sagittarius, Lady Venus is a bit wary of entering Capricorn where She must comport herself as a refined Lady of grace, but also a practical and more composed version of Her usual ultra-feminine demeanor. She is now the genteel lady of the household, the widowed dowager, and the wise woman of myth. Having been honed by being in the previous signs, Lady Venus is now the matriarch of the family, the one everybody seeks out for advice and the sovereign  of her kingdom.

There is a lot of responsibility for Lady Venus in Capricorn, no longer the frivolous vixen, the fashionista, the flirtatious femme-fatal — our Lady Venus must completely reform Her usual quixotic persona to one more practical, stoic and pragmatic. Not an easy task for our lovely Lady Venus, yet She will in time realize that whilst in Capricorn, She has a prodigious power that wasn’t available in other signs of the Zodiac. Indeed, herein Lady Venus is the CEO, the Head of the University, the Go-to expert in any field, and She is revered and looked up to as She wends Her way through the day with confidence, class, and coolness. Her self-reliance, assurance and poise will put her a head above any others She encounters.

Our Lady Venus begins to enjoy this strong yet feminine persona and She will make Capricorn Her own. While in Capricorn, we can use the practicality of Lady Venus to move our own agendas forward, and we can be sure that all of the possibilities that could happen have been taken into account. Indeed, there is little that Lady Venus in Capricorn misses. Her sharp wit, Mensa-like intelligence and diplomatic skills will allow Her to move mountains. A Force to be reckoned with, our Lady Venus in Capricorn brooks no interference in whatever she has planned for the immediate future.

Work with Lady Venus in Capricorn to find your inner Wonder-Woman — you have more power and grace than you think, and you will be able to find that elusive pathway to whatever goal you wish to conquer.

When Lady Venus moves into Aquarius, we will be able to let our hair down and become the freedom-loving, creative spirit that we know lives within our soul!



Saturn enters Capricorn — December 19th 2017 — Saturn in Capricorn Through the Zodiac Houses

After spending approximately two-and-a-half years in genial Sagittarius, mighty Saturn moves on into its own realm of cautious and practical Capricorn. Saturn hasn’t been in Capricorn for approximately 30 years — the late 80’s! As Saturn is the teacher; indeed disciplinarian of the Zodiac, our Sagittarius brethren should be taking a moment to savor the fact that they managed to get through this period in tact. I am sure that there were several times when they wanted to throw in the towel and just stop trying to get it right! The lessons that Saturn brought to them will have been hard won, and if they adhered to the “program” that Saturn set for them, they will find they are rewarded. A huge sigh of relief for most Sagittarius will be heard throughout the Galaxy!

Of course, we all have Sagittarius in our Zodiac Chart in one House or another, and it was there that our own mettle was tested. Saturn isn’t mean-spirited, but is determined for us to get the lessons the Universe intends for us to learn during our lifespan here on Earth. If Saturn was in your 10th House, your job or career might have been stressful. Saturn in Sagittarius in the 7th House would have brought partnership issues to the fore. Have you learned the lessons Saturn tried to impart to you? If not — this next go-round in Capricorn might be even more stressful or intense. For learn we must, to be free of Saturn’s constant insistence that we “get it right“. We all know those who seem to wallow in misery, can’t get their act together, or just don’t get it — they are ignoring the simple truths that will make their lives better. They must “listen” to the Universal chatter in order to complete their evolution and enhance their journey throughout this lifetime.

Now — Saturn in Capricorn — its true realm is most powerful — indeed, look to your Chart to see where Capricorn lives. Herein will be the focus of Saturn’s intense and continual lessons for the next two-and-a-half years — yes folks “Years!” Saturn isn’t cruel or petty, however, His agenda is to impart all of the knowledge that you truly need, to live the best and most complete life you can, whilst evolving here on Earth. Do we all attend to Saturn’s teachings all the time? Of course not, we are human BE-ings — not fully formed into the entities we can eventually aspire to become. Saturn’s job is to hone our abilities, to find our own truths, and to adhere to His rather strict outlook on life. Accountability, social justice, tradition, morality, order, leadership, and positive and practical change will be the order of the day. None of us wants to be on Saturn’s negative side, because there will be consequences for ignoring the inevitable lessons we must eventually accept.

If we ignore Saturn in Capricorn’s teachings — whether individually or collectively as a nation — we will be held accountable. Saturn in Capricorn has a dark side, as He doesn’t suffer Fools lightly! Ignoring public safety, the health of those most vulnerable, creating further divide between the “Have’s and Have Not’s” will bring forceful and swift reprimand. There will be a reckoning for those who ignore Saturn’s insistence on a high-moral standard, doing what is right, and not ignoring those in need. Capricorn is kind of like the wise old-man who cannot abide those who would shamelessly use those who are most vulnerable. Swift and determined public castigation will ensue. For most of we mere mortals, our lessons are to help us evolve into more humane and caring human beings. Finding the right way for us to live our lives with grace, kindness, and a social-consciousness is Saturn’s goal. Ignore the teachings of Saturn in Capricorn at your peril.

As Saturn in Capricorn moves through the Zodiac Houses for the next two-and-a-half years, it will enter each House of the Zodiac bringing His message and lessons to every one of us. Here are some of the ways Saturn in Capricorn might impact our lives for good or ill.

Saturn in Capricorn in the First Zodiac House — If Saturn is crossing your Ascendant, you are in for some major changes in your life, you may have felt out of control while Saturn went through your 12th House — possibly bringing issues of being separated from family, having someone who needed hospitalization or extra help, more responsibility, not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Or you, yourself, had health issues that were difficult to diagnose or clear up. That period is hopefully behind you now, and if you lived up to your responsibilities with all that was happening, as Saturn crosses your 1st House cusp, you may feel a lightening of your spirit — possibly from having your faith tested and yet you maintained your beliefs. Having given your all for the last couple of years, you are now going to find some ease as Saturn rewards your standing up to your extra responsibilities. Someone new may enter your life who is a willing helpmate, or perhaps the love of your life! Also, you may have found your own inner power and know that whatever occurs, you have the strength and ability to handle whatever comes  your way! Enjoy the calm after the storm, and know you have done your duty.

Saturn in Capricorn in the Second Zodiac House — this House can be tricky with Saturn in Capricorn within. Having to do with your finances, earnings and expenditures, Saturn will want to make sure you are doing all you can to maintain a healthy bank account, little debt, and a plan for the future. Saturn can also create the possibility of earning less during this period.
