Saturn moved into Sagittarius on December 23rd, 2014, leaving behind two-and-half-years of fierce storms as it made its way out of the sign of Scorpio.
Saturn in Sagittarius will expose obsolete politics and policies. During the next three years, Saturn will also be traveling over the USA’s natal ascendant. As we continue to shed the heavy baggage from the Saturn in Scorpio transit, letting go of old shadows and ghosts, we must now stand up for a good future.
- Sagittarius’s natural ruler is Jupiter, the planet of expansion, luck, freedom, law, social justice, financial fortune, and travel.
- Saturn, ruled by Capricorn, is the opposite, ruling restrictions, control, fear, isolation, and discipline.
Saturn is generally uncomfortable in Sagittarius, with a cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Saturn’s placement here can also be distrustful of optimism and faith in humanity. It can take on an approach that is too intellectual or moralistic.
As a country…as a planet and as a people, will this be a time of reformation?
An exposure of the fanatics on both sides?
Further exposure of the corrupt in order to bring revolution?
A meeting in the middle of the old and new ways?
All of the above?
This placement will definitely feel better than Saturn in Scorpio, that’s for sure! Beyond that, it’s a bit of a wild card!
