A major cosmic shift is underway that will dramatically affect all our lives into early 2020.
On January 13th Saturn, the slow moving planetary giant embodying discipline, duty and self-awareness, completed it’s 2 ½-year sojourn in Scorpio and entered into Sagittarius—the auspicious 9th sign of the zodiac.
Saturn is the personification of the Lord of Karma—it casts an unflinching light on our past (and past life) deeds and illuminates the aspects of ourselves most in need of attention, repair and development. While our personal natal chart dictates the exact areas of our individual lives Saturn wants us to focus on, Saturn’s three-year presence in Sagittarius is of great significance to each and every one of us.
Saturn is a strict and formidable taskmaster; if we learn the lessons we need to learn, the next few years will present great opportunities and rewards that will be deeply gratifying and potentially life-changing. However, if we choose to ignore those lessons, we will likely encounter some dire challenges, painful circumstances and difficult times.
So, what are the lessons Saturn expects us to learn while it is in Sagittarius? Well, Sagittarius is all about transparency, veracity, wisdom, faith, exploration and the search for divine knowledge, so first and foremost, we must learn to be honest with ourselves and with others. Falsehood, deception and self-delusion should be avoided at all costs and entirely rooted out of our consciousness during this Saturn-Sagittarian transit. Our mission for the next three years—if we choose to accept it—is to be truthful in all our dealings, to confront our personal deficits honestly, develop our higher selves and buttress our faith in a higher power.
Sagittarius is a mutable sign ruled by beneficent and expansive Jupiter, making this an excellent time for engaging in higher education, exploring philosophical principles, embarking on an inner spiritual journey through meditation, becoming more flexible in body and mind by practicing yoga or tai chi, or broadening our horizons by learning a new language or a creative art—anything, as long as it ignites our hearts and helps us to help others with our accumulated knowledge and wisdom.
Saturn can be a very tough teacher, but working together with auspicious Sagittarius and fortune-shaping Jupiter, it can make miracles happen. If we are prepared to listen with an open, honest and willing heart to what Saturn in Sagittarius is telling us, the truth will set us free.
