Your introduction to Saturn in Sagittarius (and details for the other eleven Signs) is HERE. I’ll update it every three months or so, so keep coming back!
What’s in it for me?
“Saturn in Sagittarius” means that Saturn is now in your Second House and will remain there until December 2017, and regardless of the transits it makes to individual points in your chart along the way, it will also have a general effect on the Second House matters in your life, such as money, material possession, and the more abstract concepts of “what you value in life” and “self esteem.”
What kind of effect does Saturn usually have?
Saturn brings structure and order and discipline to your life, which are all good and necessary things. Unfortunately it has a bad reputation, because frankly most people love the idea of “structure and order” until it is imposed on them… like a home with a leaky roof that you keep patching and ignoring over and over again until the thing finally caves in on you one day. Listen to what The Universe is telling you needs repair or restoration or throwing out in your life, take action, and ultimately your life will be much better, and you will have avoided the roof falling on your head and smashing your collection of vintage Batman collectables.
But yeah: no one ever really calls Saturn “fun,” unless they are either being sarcastic or are hoping your roof collapses on you.
That sounds awful!
It doesn’t have to be… in fact it can be pretty beneficial in the long run. How much time have you wasted on pursuits that have done you little or no good? Are you still spending your time and money with that Bowling League where no one is having fun any more? Do you really feel better for long after you buy something you don’t need or can’t afford, or is it a temporary buzz like a junkie getting a fix — and you could get something of real value if you just saved your money?
So Saturn in Sagittarius might actually be good news for me?
Yes, if you respond to the challenges you’ll face in the departments of your life listed above with hard work, discipline, and a little faith in yourself and in The Universe in general.
Something to contemplate…
“She said ‘I’m sorry baby I’m leaving you tonight
I found someone new he’s waitin’ in the car outside’
Ah honey how could you do it
We swore each other everlasting love
She said well yeah I know but when
We did – there was one thing we weren’t
Really thinking of and that’s money”
Is your intrinsic value as a human being, both to yourself and others, based on your capacity to make money? How much more cash would it take for you to be satisfied… and are you willing to do what it takes to get it?
Two things: first of all, don’t panic over this Saturn transit. It’s going to cover a two year period, and even if it makes trouble for you at times it’s not like every day of that period is going to stink. Secondly: no matter what House Saturn is passing through on your birth chart, you should always remember that the transits of all the planets, specific to your birth chart, is what will tell the whole story. That’s when it comes in handy knowing an astrologer who offers discounts to first-time clients. Just sayin’.
