I’m big on Saturn benefits, even when it’s a Saturn transit 1st House scenario. It’s the one where you’re gloomy but stunningly self-commanded. You find it easy to follow self-optimizing regimes and discard all that would enfeeble you. It’s good for your looks, even if your new glow is at the expense of frivolity or partying.
If Saturn were a vitamin, it would be incredible. But of course, the point of Saturn is that it is work – having to face reality and do a proper stocktake of our assets and liabilities. What you may call a hope or a gamble, Saturn deems a delusion. A Saturn transit in your 1st House is months on end of boundaries, sanity, cleanliness, and clarity. You’ll send out automatic and subtle ‘fuq off’ signals to inconsequential people and be too busy for Energy Vampires.
On the weekend i met a Capricorn dermatologist who said he had been told he had a strong Saturn – he had zero pores in his skin. He also noted that people wasted money on so-called status symbols, but that good skin was the only status symbol. To look ‘rich,’ a Rolex was irrelevant; you needed only a face and body lotion containing Retinol (he said it was the only scientifically proven skincare ingredient) and to eat zero starchy carbs. Zero.
And to develop a complete phobia of glycation. There is no magic pill. There is only discipline.
This is the Saturn transit 1st House delineation from my Year Ahead Astrology Transits report.
In the olden days, they called this The Hag Transit. Don’t freak. Regardless of your chronological age, when Saturn is in the 1st House, you feel ancient, like you’re a hard-working Vampire who’s been embracing the grind since Babylon old, cynical as the mountains, beyond all naivety. But the bonus? You look amazing. Saturn here seems to bestow people with innate powers of self-control and discipline. You may feel the tug of earthly gravity with every step, but you come across resilient, appealing, and together.
