Saturn in Capricorn 2017-2020
Saturn moves into Capricorn December 20th 2017, its home sign, were it will meet with Pluto in Capricorn come 2020. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and boy did it make an entrance! We’re still struggling with the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. Money has been printed, the numbers have been doctored, the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ has widened (as taxes were used to prop up banks enriching the 1% whilst there was no real economic growth for the rest of us) and the middle class have become debt slaves. Still the authorities will have us believe that everything is going according to plan. Is it really? It’s time for a reckoning!
Saturn in Capricorn 2017-2020 is here to take a long hard look at the people in charge — at governments, corporations and financial institutions — and restore order. This could be good and it could be bad. Saturn and Pluto are no picnic. This could be a time when yet more walls are raised to keep people out, when belts are tightened and fear-mongering is rife; a time of conservatism and increased controls, stifling regulations and life-threatening restrictions. Saturn was in Capricorn at the start of the Great Depression (1929-1931) and during the rise (and fall!) of the Berlin wall, the symbol of the Cold War (1959-62, 1988-91). We’re certainly entering a memorable time in history! But we can also expect some positive outcomes. Someone to say ‘the buck stops here!’ No more kamikaze authority figures who promise a lot and do little. No more reckless financial policies. Saturn in Capricorn rewards officials who are willing to take responsibility and carry out major financial and political changes. We could well see seminal shifts during this time, a new world currency or a new financial and political power rising. Literal tectonic shifts and earthquakes are also likely.
There are no shortcuts with Saturn in Capricorn. No easy gains. But if you put in the work you’ll be richly rewarded. Tend to the structures of your own life. Set some ground rules and put in the work to reach your ambitions. Don’t be afraid to face your fears and learn your limits. Do a reality check! It’s time for each of us to take responsibility and do our best.

It’s a slow climb to the top, dear Aries. Your journey of exploration is at an end and you now have some large shoes to fill. You’re called to tend to your career, assume your responsibilities and fulfil your obligations. Whatever your actual position, you won’t get anywhere if you slack off - especially now that all eyes are on you! This begs the question: What’s your role in society? Where are you headed? Once you get clear on that it’s time to pull out all the stops and achieve your aims. Climbing the greasy pole could be an important component of the next few years.
You’ve been purged by fire, dear Taurus, and the past few years have tested your allegiances. Now it’s time to test your faith. Armed with the truth about your finances, your resilience and the people you can actually trust, you’re ready to build your life along new and improved principles. But you’ll have to discover those principles from scratch, through trial and error. You might strive hard to get a qualification or accreditation now, become an authority in your field of expertise, market your business or publish your work. A long journey has a lot to teach you. You cannot pursue a career path or relationship now unless it truly means something.
Saturn is finally out of your relationship zone, dear Gemini! You’ve either set your relationships on new ground or gone your separate ways and now it’s time to dig deep and get your finances in order - whether that is a division of property or pooling your resources to deal with debt or taxes. Getting up close and personal will bring to light your deepest fears, as well as your emotional and financial dependencies, testing your bond in the process. This is also the time to sort out who owns what in a business partnership, set some ground rules and work together to make a profit.
How do you relate to the most important people in your life, dear Cancer? The focus has been on your work for so long that you may have neglected your relationships. Time to test that ground. Dating? It’s time to tie the knot or go your separate ways. If you’re single, you need to decide if you want a relationship in your life and make space for one. Happily married Cancerians will have to face realities and reorganise their relationship around new principles. A business partnership could also be on the cards. Gone are the days of just doing time and putting in the hours. You now want an equal share of the profits.
Your attention turns to life’s nitty gritty, dear Leo. Maybe you’ve set up your own business, tested the waters of love or dared to perform in front of an audience? You took a risk in the past. And now it’s time to put in the work and make whatever you did like second nature to you. Get your training in, perfect your skills and automate things for greater efficiency. You know your heart. Can you reorganise your life to make room for greater happiness, whether that is your new lover, child, hobby, business or creative project? This is also the time to tend to your health and establish a good daily discipline.
Do you know your heart, dear Virgo? Do you know what your heart desires? If not, it’s time you found out! You’ve been so absorbed by home and family concerns that you’ve let your personal happiness fall by the wayside. No more. Family burdens finally begin to lift and your attention turns to love, creativity and finding a platform for self-expression. This could be a life-changing love affair. It could be a hobby or creative project. Or it could be a child. Is it time to turn your hobby into a little start up? Saturn says you have to face the fear and do it anyway, take a risk and put yourself out there. There’s no other way.
Get ready for a home-coming, dear Libra. You’ve been too distracted with business communications, school or paperwork over the past few years but you're now called to turn inwards. Your home needs you now. It might be an elderly parent that requires your support, structural repairs that can no longer be ignored, or a bad living situation that you finally need to come to terms with or do something about. Don’t be afraid to devote the next few years to getting everything in order around your home and family. This will become the cornerstone of your future development.
Celebrate, dear Scorpio, for Saturn is finally out of your money house! Having fallen back on your core strengths and resources over the past three years, you now know what’s most important to you. Time to start branching out a little and testing your ideas in the real world. This could mean going back to school or accepting a job as a trainee, teaching, speaking or trying your hand at writing, going down to the trading floor, finalising deals and doing business. It’s time to pursue your interests and work on increasing your influence on the world around you.
You’ve come at the end of a long road, dear Sagittarius, and this is only the beginning. Major changes in your career or relationship status have given you a new sense of self and a new outlook on life. Now what? It’s time to test those ideas out in the world and make them pay. This could simply mean making money. Or it could mean that expenses rise as you try to realise your plans or that you can no longer ignore your financial commitments and responsibilities. Get your finances in order. The next three years will test your values and resources. This will help you get your priorities straight.
Your moment has come, dear Capricorn! You’ve taken your time out, fed your spirit, faced your enemies and learned many secrets in the process. And now you’re ready to burst into the scene! It’s not all flowers and birdsong, of course, and you’ll have to put in some hard work if you are to get to where you want to be. But you have your goal and you’re not afraid to work hard or even change your life to reach it. It’s time for a top down recalibration of who you are and where you’re going. Test your personality, goals and desires against reality, eliminate waste and do what it takes to align the two.
You’re world-weary, dear Aquarius and ready to take a step back from all your responsibilities and social commitments. Cut down and give yourself time to process, rest and heal. How the next three years go very much depends on how willing you are to let go. You might find unfinished business coming up for resolution. If you created enemies in the past, or if you worked yourself too hard at the expense of your health, these matters now come to the surface, striking at your weak spot. This is merely a signal that it’s time to withdraw, recharge your batteries and work behind the scenes on your next big thing.
Time to establish yourself, dear Pisces! You’ve gone up in the world, measured yourself against your successes and failures and set forth on a whole new direction. Now it’s time to enjoy your new found respect, build a network, receive your just rewards and give back to the community. What’s your most important goal or dream? Take it seriously and make a start! Either make that dream a reality or scrap it altogether and find new dreams to dream. It’s also time to see who your real friends are. Time to put your social circle to the test and see who comes through for you.
