Like everyone else born in late 1965 and early 1966, I’m experiencing some major outer-planet aspects in my horoscope thanks to the transit of Saturn through Capricorn. Over most the year, the ringed planet is forming a trine to the Uranus/Pluto conjunction in my natal chart, as well as a sextile to Chiron.
Unlike almost everyone else, much of this action is occurring as Saturn remains close to my natal sun. The ringed planet is essentially vacillating between my Capricorn sun and the degrees where it forms the aforementioned outer-planet aspects throughout 2019.
I’ve been writing about how content I’ve been since Saturn moved into Capricorn for a while now. Interestingly, my long-term forecast on Astrodienst supports everything I’ve said about the transits. For instance, the interpretation for transiting Saturn sextile natal Chiron on the site includes this passage:
“You are now able to assess your strengths and weaknesses more realistically. Although you will continue to accept certain restrictions in your life and to uphold some of the more pleasant traditions and customs, a feeling of inner certainty will enable you to reconsider whether some of these things cause you to make unnecessary sacrifices. You will be less willing than otherwise to identify yourself with principles which seemed sacrosanct up until now. This might cause you to question some of your important relationships and those you considered to be figures of authority. Your urge to overcome existing limitations and to follow your own aims and needs will make you seek out new relationships and go down unusual paths.”
The “feeling of inner certainty” I’m experiencing is profound, to say the least. The interpretations for both transiting Saturn trine natal Pluto and transiting Saturn trine natal Uranus are similarly profound. Everything I’m doing at the moment feels right, despite material indicators of progress.
I’m going to continue to trust that I’m on the right path at the moment. I don’t view Saturn as a malefic force in my chart and I don’t feel as if I am being held down by the planet’s proximity to my natal sun. Instead, I feel validated, like my innate patience is going to be rewarded at the end of this cycle.
As I’ve mentioned a million times on this blog, the perception of planets as “benefic” or “malefic” might work for some of you, but it doesn’t work for me. Accepting that I am a Saturnian/Capricorn character who thrives when the pace slows down has allowed me to appreciate the incremental gains I have been accumulating over the course of my life. I honestly feel as if I’m getting better with age in almost every aspect of my life. I am the sea-goat, constantly evolving and always ascending.
Thanks, Saturn, for once again making me see that the only way to go is up.
