Saturn, the most karmic Planet, has been on its path through Capricorn since December 5th, 2017. Saturn is able to create entropy by virtue of carrying itself with an uncanny ability to bestow limitations and restrictions on the confines of what society is able to become. If individuals and societies find it to be a struggle to adhere to what is right (in terms of what the Universe’s will is, astrologically), then it is able to create repercussions by the end of the given cycle that it is in. This can create upheaval if historical positions of tradition aren’t followed, especially for those trying to break the barriers, as such. Saturn can be a benevolent placement if such predetermined situations are adhered to, but if there is a resolve for intention to break the boundaries of law and order, this can be most difficult.
In the Tarot, it is the Devil card that represents the nature of Capricorn, not because it is evil, but rather, because of the common understanding of the archetypes as Capricorn having a sway toward earthly positions that can include materialism, but also lacks a focus in spirituality, unless there is a conscious effort to do so. Pride tends to be a position of Capricorn individuals, especially when it comes to their own work, hobbies, artistic endeavors, and family.
Saturn in Capricorn in Retrograde
As of September 5th, 2018 at 7:08 AM EST, Saturn moved from a retrograde position in Capricorn, and began to go direct. This course will continue until it will reach a retrograde position again on April 28th, 2019 at 8:54 PM EST. Saturn is the ruling Planet of Capricorn, therefore is in its domicile. This position focuses on the patriarchal positions of society, but also restricts forward momentum for us, until we are willing to learn the lessons of this karmic planet, without an expectation for gaining anything in return. It is currently operating with a brutal strength, which can be felt in business sectors and more materialistic positions of life. Saturn will remain in Capricorn, retrogrades and all, until December 17th, 2020.
