Saturn will turn retrograde in Aquarius May 11th. The planet will reenter Capricorn on July 1st. At this point, you can’t really isolate it’s effect. It will meet Jupiter and Pluto in the sign. This situation will be sustained for the rest of the year and the impact will be profound.
Saturn in Capricorn is a positive force. The planet is strong in it’s own sign. Good boundaries. Things get sorted out and put right.
I’m not suggesting this is fun or enjoyable. “Karma” is not necessarily pleasant but it can be understood. It describes the kind of thing that comes around and you know you deserve it? The effects of this transit will be altered by the involvement of Jupiter and Pluto.
Jupiter expands things and as you can see, we are currently in a worldwide pandemic which includes FEAR (Capricorn). Whatever comes of this, it will travel because that’s what Jupiter does.
Pluto kills, among other things. Specifically, I have always seen Pluto in Capricorn to be a business killer. You can click the tags; I’ve written about this for more than a decade. Spin it in any direction you like.
For example, people say, they dying businesses are outworn or old-fashioned. It’s not going to make this less painful. In many cases, the businesses suffer through no fault of their own.
The pain will be widespread but not evenly applied. I’ll link to an earlier post below, that offers details and guidance for Earth signs, in particular, who stand to fare quite well through this. We’re near enough to the forming of this conjunction, there are clear indications of industries that will be devastated…
For example, Jupiter rules air travel. Has it not been severely curtailed? Warren Buffett, who has Saturn in Capricorn, sold his all his stock in airlines. That’s an obvious case, but then comes the attached businesses, car rental agencies, hotels, Airbnb is laying off people in droves. You can extrapolate out from there.
Maybe you’re in a less-affected business. It won’t help you if your customer is broke. It’s going to be a grind. A hardship, worldwide. Add to this the Uranus in Taurus – Reversal Of Fortune situation. You’ve kind of got to be ready for anything.
To fare well, embrace Saturn in Capricorn principles. They’re simple. Face your fear. Do the right thing. Keep your commitments if at all possible. Support others if you’re in a position to do so. Don’t lie, steal, cheat… control yourself.
You can also be kind. The last thing a person in the midst of you a painful struggle needs is for someone to come along and kick them. People think it won’t happen to them, often right before it does!
These might also help. Check the house in your chart that will be impacted:
To update, I see widespread dread at this time. It’s as if everyone in the world (Jupiter) is either being held or backed into something that’s repulsive to them (Pluto). Situations are intractable. I don’t see that anyone is able to sneak out of this. That’s unusual.
You may be less affected, if you don’t have planets in the late degrees of Cardinal signs. This doesn’t help you much when your child or your spouse or parent or best friend, is.
I’m also noticing that for some, the primary pain comes from the realization they are old. You really get it at this point. Time is limited. You don’t have endless opportunities to do the right thing.
Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn on July 1st. See if you can feel this LOCK IN. Be sure to note the house in your chart where the stellium falls. Serious business there at this time.
Also, if your birthday takes place in this period, be sure to check your solar return. Knowledge is power.
Good luck, everyone!
