Good morning Mystic!
I hope you’re amazing. I’m always so dumbfounded by how accurate and spot on you are. Not to mention funny, droll, wise-cracking and well-informed. In fact, when it comes to what’s going on in the world, I check you first before I check Twitter’s what’s trending, the NY Times, HuffPo, etc. Is it because you’re a day ahead?
Today’s a little messed up in the US, what Daylight Savings Time ending this am. Despite every other person in the media suggesting I sleep in, I’m up early, taking the extra hour to reflect on how I want to do things differently in the next few month — i.e. the Zap Zone — and your Daily Mystic this am reminded me of an issue I’ve been wrestling with: how to do my Saturn optimally.
I’ve got Saturn in the 5th in Capricorn. When the going gets rough, I take a 5th house / Leo approach, not unlike the Jupiter in Leo suggestions in this am’s Daily Mystic — lavish attention on my hair; take myself to a movie, the theater, a fabulous art happening, see a band or just play music really loud; find a kid to borrow and teach them amazing life lessons while having fun. But as the Zap Zone looms, I’m wondering if, perhaps, I’m missing a whole opportunity by not doing Saturn in Capricorn as well.
Which is where I’m stumped. I work for myself and I’m single so I don’t have anyone to boss around. I’m not involved in politics or a member of any committee so I can’t wrestle the reins of power from someone. List making? Uber-budgeting? Pitch a piece on creating a better system for home tasks? Research financial programs? Adjust my retirement plans? If that’s not confusing enough, my Jupiter is conjunct my Saturn which is apparently supposed to mean something though I’m not sure what. Do all of the above with one hand while feeding myself grapes with the other? Play spritely flute music? Drink freshly pressed Beaujolais Nouveau? Plan a hike wearing Vibram Five Fingers?
How does one do Saturn in Capricorn?
You SOUND as if you are already doing your Saturn brilliantly. And the suggestions are brilliant. F.Y.I. Jupiter on Saturn was said to be the “star” sought by the Three Wise Kings who found Jesus. When planets such as these are conjunct, they can look like one big bright star OR the “media” of the day fuqed it up and could not be bothered reporting “conjunction.”
ANYWAY so Saturn LOVES to be in Capricorn and all you need do is be wise and timely. Saturn in Capricorn is good with time – never too early, never too late – always on time. I mean this is in a spiritual sense, as well as the obvious advantages of being punctual. Saturn in Capricorn remembers her past lives – or at least, enough of them to be useful.
Saturn in Capricorn mentors younger people, even when she is just 17. Saturn in Capricorn seeks expert advice and then trusts it implicitly, no fuss, no flailing about wasting time whining. Saturn in Capricorn turns being insanely competent into such a thing that people secretly think you must have supernatural intervention – like you harnessed a djinn or mastered interstellar wormhole travel early in life.
Saturn in Capricorn never bothers with projecting naivety or being flustered. Saturn in Capricorn never wastes a nano-second worrying about what the haters or imitators think. She would have “Do Tigers Lie Awake At Night Worrying About The Opinions Of Sheep?” embroidered on a throw cushion IF she had throw cushions.
Saturn in Capricorn is Saturn in EARTH and Saturn in Dignity – just as fruits take time to come forth and seeds have a pre-determined time in which to grow, Saturn in Capricorn is aligned with the rhythms of the planet. No psychic equivalent of growth enhancers here. Saturn in Capricorn knows of the drastically enormous powers of enhanced, intense focus on a goal.
Even if you were not born with Saturn in Capricorn, you can get some of this vibe when Saturn is going through your 10th House or you have a powerful Capricorn activation in your chart such as progressed Moon/Sun/ Ascendant into Capricorn or Pluto waking up a usually dormant Saturnine drive within.
