Saturn turned retrograde at 16 degrees in March, 2016. He turns direct at 9 degrees in August, 2016. Saturn will hit 21 degrees Sagittarius by the end of this year…and then pound the later degrees of the sign, throughout 2017.
The harsh language is purposeful. Jupiter and Neptune have modified the effects of the transit. It’s softened it and clouded it. Grace has been offered and escape, possible. Next year that will change.
This will affect all of us, but people with planets in the later degrees of Sagittarius (and other mutable signs) will be profoundly affected. With the transit out of orb of their natal planets and the “big delusion” created by Jupiter and Neptune, they’ve barely been introduced to this energy. I see it with clients. They really don’t think anything (significant) can happen to them.
Here are some clues…
Those posts are plainspoken. If you can see how Jupiter and Neptune would blur the message, you can imagine how this might play without those protections in place.
When it does become difficult, check out the transcript from our workshop on Saturn in Sagittarius – A Real Education. A lot can be gained from this transit but it’s not going to be free or easy. On the upside, what you learn will last you a lifetime!
Do you have planets in the late degrees of Sagittarius or the other mutable signs? Are you ready for this transit?
