JULY 1st – SATURN RX returns to CAPRICORN
(& MARS in ARIES June 28th, 2020)
“We are not going to fight them we are going to transcend them”--Will Caster
While Saturn was in Aquarius (March 22nd to July 1st) our focus was on the future, how to proceed as individuals and as a society. Media, communication, humanitarian causes, groups of any kind are all areas governed by Aquarius. So too is detachment from our emotions. Of course an aggressive Mars has overruled in this case since June 28th and is due to get a whole lot worse. (Read more about MARS in ARIES).
Despite the fact Saturn is crossing the threshold into Capricorn we will continue to muse about the future. However, Saturn, also known as the ‘taskmaster’ works from a different angle in Capricorn. Work, practical strategies, following the rules, donning a cautious approach is favored. We are likely to see some effort to use our time constructively to build something better. It doesn't look like we have a choice to be honest.
This may equate to governments pushing through timely legislation or doubling down on ‘the rules’. Unfortunately, considering the position of Mars, this is bound to trigger unrest no matter how sensible actions/behaviours appear to be. In our personal lives much the same energetic pattern will unfold. We may all want to make our own rules, fueled by Mars to fight, and fight hard. Both planets, Saturn & Mars are in extremely strong placements. Saturn has added power as it is ruler of Capricorn (also Aquarius in traditional astrology) and Mars too, is energized as it is ‘at home’ in Aries.
Remember Saturn is retrograde so perhaps not quite as strong as a forward moving Mars. That is, Saturn will be somewhat at a disadvantage when it comes to holding down the fort. Nevertheless, considering Saturn’s influence, aside from other planetary placements, everyone is likely to be posing the same questions overall: ‘how do we prepare for next time’, ‘how do we rework elements of our situation so they remain steady and secure in the face of unforeseen circumstances?”. Governments are likely to be contemplating these questions seriously. And so, a fair amount of caution and consideration for what’s practical in the long term will be noticeable as a main theme in public discussion. ‘Discussion’, for the rest of 2020, of course means something entirely different than it ever has. They ought to place an image of fire-breathing dragons ‘discussing’ politics beside the word in the newest editions of visual dictionaries.
Once Saturn stations direct on September 29th a steadier framework will begin to establish itself. Mars will be slowing down by then. And as Saturn re-enters Aquarius on December 18th to remain until 2023 the foundational aspects of how we build life from 'here' will grow in stature. Again, this will be a noticeable theme playing out in a public manner.
