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 Fifth 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 Fifth House matters in your life, such as romance, creativity, having fun, and children.
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. Let’s be honest here: kids are cute but they’re a huge hassle sometimes. Romance is great but ultimately it involves another… often tragically flawed… human being. Creativity is great, but if you want to make something of it other than scribbling on the wall you’ll need to develop a lot of self-discipline otherwise nothing of value will come of it. Acknowledge this and then either find your fun somewhere else, or embrace the nuisance that comes with it and work with it.
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…
“No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it’s dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
Learn the value of getting out of your routine and having fun… and deal with the things that used to be fun that are now just kind of a drag.
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’.
