Saturn and you

Saturn’s transit of Capricorn will have no influence on you personally.

Its influence is strictly global and relates to global trends in business.

But Saturn in your birth chart does provide valuable information that you need to know about.

He reveals, by his 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.

Special note

Events related to Saturn’s transit of Capricorn are more inclined to occur when Saturn forms an aspect in the sky.
