Saturn is in Capricorn – Climbing to the Top of the Mountain


Saturn is in Capricorn  from December 19th 2017 to March 21st 2020. The last time this happened was in 1988 to the beginning of 1991. Think back to what happened then, if you were alive and how much your life changed with hard work. Also, reflect on what you still hold and use from this time. Saturn in Capricorn is about creating lasting results that stay with us for our lives. Capricorn rules the goat and he gets to the top of the mountain.

It’s time to get to work. With Saturn in Capricorn there is no cutting corners. Patience is now the only way to get the results you want in your life. Slow and steady progress is the key at this time. You cannot rush the result. However, if you do stay on course and work hard everyday towards your goal, you will get to the top of the mountain.

You may have to leave a few friends behind with this transit. Saturn in Capricorn does not play around. It means business. It wants real, true authentic friends and family members. You might want to think about people who are in your life who are no longer serving you in productive ways. With this transit you need your energy. Fair-weather friends may not be in your best interest now. However, don’t fret it will not be painful. It will be easy because with this transit you become practical. You will know to have the life you were meant to live. Some people will not be able to make this part of the journey with you. There might be some friends and family members that just weigh you down. The mountain to climb the next two and half years is hard and steep. It’s time to lighten your load. It may be for your highest good to not get rid of only people but unconscious bad habits that no longer serve you. That being said, the journey now will be with your true friends and partners and you will feel like a weight has been lifted from you. Keep climbing to the top of the mountain. You will get to the top, even if you just take a few steps a day. It should become easier now because you have cleaned your life up and gotten rid of all that no longer serves you.

You may meet new people along your path now that become life long friends. People you have a lot more in common with. It may be that you and your partner become closer at this time. The two of you may become a strong unit that walks hand and hand. Helping each other with all the things that might come up on your climb up the mountain.

It does not matter what you work on. It could be your physical health, mental health, clearing your unconscious bad thought patterns, writing a book, getting into shape, working on your website, building a house, remolding a house, building a happy relationship, even a new life or your career. Whatever it is you are working so diligently on you will get there when you put the effort into it. The structures we build now will benefit us in the future.

However, remember if you cut corners you will not get there. You won’t even be able to start over. Saturn in Capricorn hates cheaters and those who push others out of the way to get ahead. One thing you can be sure of is Saturn is one powerful planet that watches your every move very carefully and will punish you severely if you do bad things. People who do immoral things will get caught. Saturn is the lord of Karma and it does not mess around. It will punish you accordingly. It’s time to act out of love at all times and clean your karma up if need be.

The reward in the end, when you get to the top will be greater than anything Jupiter has given you. Thus don’t give up. Keep climbing. Keep working. Keep at it. You will get there if you learn patience this time around. Slow and steady, easy does it.

Yes, indeed Saturn in Capricorn can be hard. It’s not easy but it’s one of the most rewarding times in your life. A time when you actually get what you want when you work at it.

Conserve your energy, live in the now, drink lots of water and have a wonderful time with those who are loving and kind in your life. It may be a small circle now. However, it’s authentic and will feel like a breath of fresh air. You probably had a lot around in your life that was a distraction and now that they or it’s gone, it will be easier to obtain your goal. It will be simple to see what needs to be left behind to get to the top, because you are moving at a slow pace now and it’s just easier to see things.

Saturn in Capricorn will be a time to know your problems are your responsibility. You can’t blame anyone else with this transit. Just fix them and keep moving.

Things may move a bit slower now, even at a snail’s pace. However, in life we miss so many wonderful opportunities because we are moving so fast. We are often too quick to listen to our intuition. This transit will slow us down so we learn to listen. When we learn to trust ourselves again and it makes it easier to know whom to trust.

This transit is not about immediate gratification. It’s about long-term results as a result of daily effort that builds in time. You may feel like you are running in place and not getting anywhere. If you are patient and work hard you will get what you desire at the end of this transit or in the next two years. The best thing about Saturn in Capricorn is what you work on now will  last your lifetime. The next two years will lay a solid foundation for you to spend the rest of your life basking in.

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
