One of THE most influential planets is undoubtedly Saturn, located in its home zone since December 2017. Each year Saturn slams on the brakes and goes into a 4 1/2 month retrograde until 18th September, and this year this begins on the 30th of April. What does this mean for your zodiac sign?

Saturn in Capricorn is very much about the values we associate with Capricorn the zodiac sign, of enabling steadfastness, patience, application, self discipline, self control, accepting rules and regulations, complying to societal norms etc. But Saturn also has some less virtuous characteristics of coldness, restriction, limitation, is obstacle creating and negative conditioning. People of a certain age group with remember without affection of parents maintaining order through more restrictive, and fearful controlling attitudes. Then again, some may argue that some have so much freedom these days, that they lack the positive characteristics of Saturn.
So, how will this particular retrograde in Capricorn playout over the next 4 1/2 months? Well, very powerfully. Not least because Saturn is very closely located to the planet of transformation Pluto, which itself began a retrograde only last week. Imagine Saturn is about stability, and orthodoxy – especially in Capricorn, so it is essentially about maintaining the status quo, where as Pluto is about change, transformation, hidden enemies, the counter culture etc, as the two are side by side,so the desire for change is pushing against the desire for everything to stay as it has been. And we can see all over the world huge upheaval as more radical agendas seek a voice, and those with more conservative instincts do all they can to keep a lid on what they want. Of course, Uranus moving into Taurus is having a massive impact on this, for sure.
But in June, the zodiac’s planet of action Mars, moving through the sign of Cancer, goes into a truly powerful opposition with Saturn from the 10th to the 18th and this is going to have a massive impact upon us all but especially around family dynamics, the future of the United Kingdom (which is Capricornian) and our attitudes to where we live, the environment, storms, earthquakes, and anything to do with security. Saturn in Capricorn can be very materialistic. Mars in Cancer represses the fire of the planet of war but it can steam with indignation. The outcome of this particular aspect is going to see frustration much to the fore, a sense of injustice, simmering rage even. People with agendas that are not so pure may use this time to make big points, and to act ruthlessly. Refuse to be cowed by anyone like this, but try to avoid any tendency to erupt because this will just be used against you. Obstacles can seem great, but can be overcome with determination and will power. Our sense of self (Mars) can definitely be tested.
But should Saturn be making contacts in your Natal Chart, or around your Directions or Progressions and Transits it can also have a very profound impact. To discover exactly how, Please CLICK HERE…
