Saturn-Pluto alignment — article

On Jan. 12th at 11:59am EST, a Saturn/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn became exact. (we’ve been feeling the effects of this aspect since Dec. 5th, 2019; it will remain strong until Feb. 19th, 2020).

The last time we saw a Saturn-Pluto alignment was in November 1982, and then again in May-June, 1983; back then it was in a late degree of Libra, the time before then was in August 1947 in 13º of Leo — as you can see this is quite a long cycle — anywhere from 32 – 38 years, in fact.

It’s time to think seriously about what no longer works for us, both individually, and collectively; this is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high and we are more reliably and consistently productive. We derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if we can readily find meaning in what we are doing — and are more able to concentrate, as we can see ourselves and our purpose very clearly, and also see that our persistence will pay off.

The invitation to adjust our expectations becomes obvious; any trials and tests that emerge now will nudge us onto the right path and challenge us to become stronger and more confident in our own abilities. Do your best to detox and de-stress.

Facing realities that we have conveniently avoided is definitely part of this transit. With any long-term cycle, you can set some intentions around what it is you would like to create, so ask yourself

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Capricorn or Scorpio (Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).

Saturn’s Journey through Capricorn until Dec. 2020!

Dec.19th, 2017 at 11:49pm EST, Saturn changes signs from adventurous, truth-seeking and enthusiastic Sagittarius to practical, accomplishment-oriented and responsible Capricorn, where it will journey until Dec., 2020 (except for the period between March and July of 2020, when it will temporarily move into Aquarius, giving us preview of what’s to come beyond Capricorn)

Saturn feels quite comfortable in Capricorn, as that planet “rules” this earth sign; you might say that Capricorn and Saturn have a lot in common and understand each other. Here are some key characteristics that apply to both: (more…)

What is a Saturn Return?

A client of mine asked me yesterday:

I have been holding some questions around Saturn Return for a while now and have reached a point where I would like to get some clarity on the subject.  I’ve heard different things from many people for years now.  More than anyone else, I trust and would love to hear your interpretation. So I am asking if you are willing and able to take the time to enlighten me?
In regards to your question about the Saturn return:


Saturn Return in Scorpio: A “Cataclysmic Event”?

A client of mine asked me yesterday:

“I did have one question for you regarding my first Saturn Return. I guess I’m just a bit afraid that there will be some cataclysmic event that will occur in and around the day it is exact. If there were to be one main event that would occur, I’m wondering what that could be?” 
In regards to your question about the Saturn Return, usually when we are in denial about our lives/something in our life or we rationalize things, we will have a rude awakening during a Saturn transit. 


Saturn in Scorpio Until 2015

Saturn in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio until September 2015

Saturn changed signs from Libra to Scorpio on October 5th, 2012. Saturn’s entry into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio is a powerful placement for the next three years, as it creates a mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn (until September 2015) — Pluto and Saturn will be supporting each other’s agendas, as long as they are in each other’s sign.

The last time Saturn changed signs from harmony-loving Libra to intense, all-or-nothing Scorpio was in November 1982 (and then again in August 1983 because of Saturn’s retrograde phase). If you remember that period, you may recall what happened in the area of relationships for you (or for your parents) at that time. This time around, we are getting a chance to go to a new level, in regards to our relationships and long-term goals. We are starting a new chapter.
Saturn in Scorpio wants us to get down to business when it comes to our deep emotional bonds, either with ourselves or others. It’s time to make some decisions. No more trying to see both sides of a situation, it’s time to make some real choices. It’s do or die; it’s all or nothing. We are being invited to make some really deep changes in our lives. We are ready to put an end to things that are just simply not working for us anymore.
We are powerful in our own right, and Saturn invites us to create healthy boundaries with others. Where could you set some healthy boundaries for yourself? At work? At home? With your family?
We are now ready to focus on becoming whole. We can do this by taking a serious look at what qualities and behaviors need to be embraced: the good, the bad and the ugly. Bringing conscious awareness to all of who we are is the only way to feel empowered from within and to heal what was disempowered in the past. It’s time to take responsibility for who we are and what we are capable of. How can you bring “light”, awareness to the darker places inside of you?
Anything that doesn’t completely resonate with us on a truthful and deeply passionate level is going to have to be cut loose. This may feel scary at first, but if we are being honest with ourselves, whatever we loose or cut loose was not adding anything to our lives anyways; so we are better off without it.
We are here now to get really honest about what we are passionate about, what we want to pursue long-term that resonates with us in a deep, authentic way. We need to make good on our promises now: it’s not enough anymore to just talk about something — it’s time for actions and commitments. We can no longer waste time, we must do what is required, so that we can have deeper, more fulfilling experiences. This is true on a personal and on a collective level.
What would it take for you to fulfill your full potential? What is it that you are most afraid of doing? What if you just went ahead and did it?
On a collective level, we may need to look at our shared resources. These may be resources we share with other countries or the resources of our planet. It’s a great time to clean up all the pollution in the air and in our waters — and take responsibility for a healthy, whole connection to our planet.
For those of us who have Scorpio planets, a Scorpio Ascendent or a Libra Ascendent in a late degree: You may be coming out of a phase of your life that was a little confusing. A phase that had to do with ending things and preparing for the next phase of you life. Now it is time to actualize yourself, to begin anew and to start building something long-term. It’s time to grow up and take responsibility for who you are and what you want. This is a new beginning for you, as best as you can, look reality straight in the eye and get it together. You won’t be able to get away with being anything less than being a mature, upright citizen with complete integrity.
