Saturn and Uranus are currently squared off and will stay this way through 2022. Capricorn is Saturn-ruled. I got to thinking about how Capricorn might be affected. I have quite a bit of Capricorn and I realized I know the answer to this question.
Speaking generally, Capricorn is known to conform. They’re inclined to “do the right thing”. They tend to follow laws, pay their dues and such.
Again, I am speaking in general terms. The sign is known to be somewhat stiff and I’ll give you a (personal) example of this.
If you read my book, you know there was a time I found myself sitting in a ditch; called an “arroyo” or a “wash”, if you grew up where I did. You might call it a “dry creek bed”, but this is the desert. I’m talking about. I was sitting in the dirt on the edge of the wash, with some strangers.
I was sitting there because I was smoking a joint even though I didn’t like to smoke pot. I was doing it anyway, hoping to make some friends which I needed badly at the time.
It didn’t go very well. Something awful happened but before it did, I realized I was not going to become friends with these people. I just didn’t belong in the scenario in any sense of the word. I was failing, you could say, especially if you’re a Capricorn.
In whatever case, I was not going to waste my time with this kind of stupid pursuit. I was a teenager but I would have rather been at work, trying to gain a foothold as an adult and establish some kind of security.
This isn’t a very fun person, I’m describing. But hopefully it gives you some insight into Capricorn. We’re just not frivolous people. So what happens when Saturn mashes up with Uranus?
Well, it’s been great. For me, it’s all about my integrity (Saturn) as an individual (Uranus). I still have to follow the rules, but hey! At this point, they’re my rules! I’ve also detached or become liberated from all sorts of ailments or tendencies that can plague a Capricorn.
I don’t care about any of these things anymore. They’re like a small speck of dust to me.
Been there, done that. It’s as appealing as sitting in a ditch in the middle of the desert in the dirt wondering what the hell I’m doing sitting in the desert in the dirt!
This has been a wonderful transit for me. I wanted to write this for people like me. This is your chance to come up with your own standard. If you’re still conforming, think about moving some of your lines. Chances are, you’ve outgrown them!
Also consider how you respond to pressure. If the answer is “poorly”, this is your chance to change that.
Capricorn is electrified at the moment. Find a way to capitalize on this. The goal is to become autonomous.
Do you have Capricorn in your chart? How is this transit affecting you?
