When Saturn transits natal Saturn, invariably a person feels pressured. It’s a reality check. How are you doing in your life? More specifically, how are you maturing?
Some people are ultra careful and responsible. I wind up reassuring a person like his, that they’re on track. It’s a great relief to this type of personality.
Other people hit some kind of wall during this transit. They can deal with it and if they do, they’ll see results of the efforts they make in the current day, in seven years. This is the amount of time it takes for Saturn to come around to making it’s next hard aspect. You can set your clock by this transit!
As an example, right now Saturn is in Capricorn. People feel pressure to take responsibility for their life. If they manage this, in seven years they’ll be able to look back and see the gains they made by making an effort at that time. They may also shudder at the thought of how things would be had they not made an effort.
In contrast, people who resist the pressure, blow off their lessons and manage to avoid learning anything will also see results. They’ll wake up to find themselves far behind the pack.
Understanding this, most people will go right to the task at hand because when you get right down to it, most want to achieve. They want a good grade and the glory of having accomplished something.
If you are having a Saturn transit to natal Saturn, keep this in mind. Every *right* thing you do will improve your circumstance in the moment but the real payday is seven years out, and fourteen years out, and twenty one years out and twenty eight years out. Based on this, I’d put the money in the bank today.
With Saturn in Capricorn, ask yourself these questions:
- Are I on course?
- Do I like where I’m headed.
- What’s working?
- What’s not working?
- What do I need?
- What do I lack?
- Am I appropriately mature for my age?
Reality check, see? It’s your chance to take stock of things. Get it together and you’ll see the results of your efforts.
It’s not such a bad thing when you realize that the problems you have are for you to solve. At least you have control! This is a lot better than having to rely on someone else to take care of things for you. You get to live on your own time schedule, not waiting for on another person’s clock!
