Capricorn 22 Dec - 19 Jan
Saturn, your planetary ruler, has been
retrograde, appearing to move backwards
when viewed from earth, since the end of
March. Around mid-August Saturn appears
to come to a halt and change direction again.
Saturn turns stationary direct on the 13 August
and will then slowly start to move forward again through
the summer and autumn. Like the tides of the sea, the ebb
and flow of the Saturn cycle represents times to step forward and step back, to step forward and step back. Therefore you may begin to feel that you too can slowly start to move forward in a number of important areas of your life.
The changes taking place may be as much psychological as tangible or physical. Nevertheless, it looks like it may be time for a new perspective or new priorities. This appears to be further emphasized by the planetary pile-up in Virgo this month that suggests the pursuit of educational, metaphysical and philosophical matters could turn out to be very fruitful. Therefore, make the most of opportunities to broaden your mind and horizons.
Be mindful a day or so either side of 24 August when Mars and Saturn meet in Sagittarius, one of the more complex areas of your solar chart. This could prove to be a tense or stressful couple of days and so you might want to keep your own council around this time and avoid office politics, financial shenanigans or being drawn into other’s complicated dramas.
