Saturn and you
Saturn’s transit of Capricorn will have no influence on you personally. Its influence is strictly global and relates to global business trends.
But Saturn in your birthchart does provide personal information that you need to know about.
It reveals, by its house position and aspects, the strength of your security urge and the area of your life where there is dearth, struggle and laborious effort.
Saturn is the planet of work, responsibility, economy and loss and major events involving these matters only occur when Saturn is activated by progression.
What’s currently taking place in your life and what’s on your mind is primarily determined by the major progressed aspects in your chart and the local environment in which you live, work and operate.
Transit Saturn in your chart by its house position and aspects to birthchart and progressed planets has an inconsequential influence on your life.
