The planet Saturn will be in the sign of Sagittarius from December 23, 2014 until December 21, 2017. Three years. A half a year longer than it’s average time of two and one half years.
During this transit, Saturn in Sagittarius will aspect (make a mathematical relationship to) all the mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. All these aspects are challenging and will demand upgrades and improvements in specific areas, depending on where the mutable signs are in your chart/life.
First: Saturn in Sagittarius
Saturn, the planet of limitation, in Sagittarius, the sign of growth will demand a balanced mixture of the two and require careful planning in all areas involving confidence, optimism, and expansion and may focus on issues of Law, Medicine, Advertisement, Travel, and/or Religion.
Sagittarius represents confidence: both over and under confidence.
Saturn represents self esteem: both high and low self esteem.
If we have any problems, shortcomings, imbalances or lapses in these areas they will be revealed to us between now and December 21, 2017.
Sagittarius represents understanding our boundaries. Saturn tests and/or limits boundaries and demands the best, most mature, realistic plan in any area of growth thru Dec. 21,2017.
Be alert to signs of over-confidence. Be sure during this transit to check the details. The time, the money, the equipment, the talent: do you have what’s necessary to complete the goal? Be sure your plan is realistic. Sagittarius often over estimates and overlooks details.
Saturn will call your attention to any overconfidence, over-estimation or unreality.
Upgrading, improving and/or maturing you is Saturn’s goal. Remember how he works.
Blocks, hassles, critiques, problems, challenges, frustrations and tests point the way to the areas that need attention, upgrading and improvement.
There is no Saturn (growth/maturity) without some Saturn effort: hard work, time spent, patience, homework, research, lessons learned, a solid, realistic plan, money spent, changes made. So go slow and pay careful and honest attention to the area of your chart/life that contains the Sign of Sagittarius.
If you have planets in the sign of Sagittarius, when Saturn reaches their degree in your chart it will be an end and a beginning of the attributes, qualities and expressions represented by that planet. The beginning of a new 30 year cycle of approach to the issues represented by that planet. Each new cycle of Saturn can represent a maturing (Saturn) and a redirecting (new cycle) of the issues and expressions of that planet.
If you have a Sagittarius rising, (ascendant) at some time between Dec. 23, 2014 and Dec. 21, 2017 You will have a Major life, goal, appearance, energy and direction change. At some point during the Transit of Saturn in Sagittarius you will begin a new 30 year cycle of growth, maturity and career direction. You will begin anew as a new person. Still you but different.
