Saturn will leave Sagittarius for Capricorn in about six weeks. I pay close attention to these transitions.
I’ve noticed that clients are booking hour-long consults rather than thirty minutes, which is unusual for me. I’ve consistently claimed I could cover most issues in the shorter time period. I’ve got Mars conjunct Mercury for one thing – it’s fast. I’m efficient by nature but I also don’t want to waste anyone’s money or anyone’s time, including my own.
I know some people think astrology is some parlor game entertainment, but this is not a game to me. I’m a serious person, highly focused on helping anyone who hires me. I was talking to a friend yesterday about going from doctor to doctor without anything concrete coming from it. I can’t stand that. As an astrologer, I am going to get to the root of the problem. I won’t have it any other way. My reputation is at stake.
So now people are booking hour-long consults and I see this is necessary. The concerns of the clients are deep and they’re dense. It takes time and effort to get through them, not just on my part but on the part of the client. I’m finding the same thing in my Saturn in Capricorn workshop.
You know how you take your car in for service…it’s just an oil change and they check the fluids and the air pressure in your tires? That’s one thing. But sometimes you get in there and you need some major overhaul or something significant addressed. And when this happens, you know your need it. The mechanic is not kidding. At that point, car ownership becomes a heavier responsibility.
It’s okay, because it has to be okay, if you want to drive. It’s okay so long as when they give you your keys back, they’re done the repair correctly and completely. You want to drive away, knowing you’re safe and the problem is taken care of. You want to know, it’s not going to be you broken down on the side of the road as others drive past you.
That’s what these consults are like, a this time. Things have turned completely upside down. It used to be that 80% of my clients booked 30 minutes which was completely sufficient. The other went for 60 minutes because they knew they needed it. Now people are booking an hour, 80% of the time. I’m glad because it’s necessary. It’s just a harder job and that’s all there is to it.
I think there are two reasons for this. First, Saturn in Capricorn is serious business. But beyond that, Saturn is heading to conjunct Pluto in Capricorn in 2020. This makes it deathly serious business and deep down, most people realize this.
That doesn’t mean you should be afraid. Just get your car into the shop, right? Get to the doctor or to the astrologer or to whoever or whatever it is you need to keep on keeping on over the next few years.
How do you feel about Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn?
