Saturn-Free Sagittarians

Filed in SAGITTARIUS

Saturn spends two and a half years going through each sign of the Zodiac. When it’s Saturn in your sign, you’re different, more muted and respectful. Even if you’re not having a direct Saturn transit, you feel the Saturnine energy. So there are now 45 more days of Saturn in Sagittarius to go.

Today is the day that you can confidently assert to Sagittarius folk that their ever-present sense of not having done enough, the foreboding feeling of their own chronology and of Status Anxiety will ease in exactly that amount of days.

With Saturn in your sign, you don’t embrace the grind. You merge with the grind. You become the grind.  And you stop wondering why parent-boss-figures in your life – past and present – did not meet your needs. You’re your own parent-boss-figure.

With Saturn In Your Sign, You Master Time And Money

You’re too damned busy to clock the heightened regard in which you are held by others.  Even people who hate your guts have a grudging, seething respect for your demonstrably awesome ability to keep your shit together.  Time and money cease to become occult forces that are seemingly out of your control.

But you won’t appreciate any of this till Saturn moves on out of your home constellation. Yes, Saturn can, of course, be (say) squaring your Moon or doing something else funky to a personal natal point. But Saturn in “your sign” – that is, the same sign that your Sun is in – is a distinct Saturn-era of your life.

It is its own weather system, a stunning but oppressive array of platinum looking clouds with golden linings and the threat of an imminent thunderstorm, always.  Everything feels like history. Time is compressed and turned inside out, operating in multiple dimensions a la the physicists. And all the time you labor against gravity, literally as in weightlifting or strengthening your bones and in the metaphysical sense.  Your footfall feels heavy on the ground. Calculations become a form of meditation.

Calculations Become A Form Of Meditation

Only once you have burned off every gram of denial or naff desire can you defy the weight of all that which would hold you down.

Forty-five more days of this 140-week astral passage to go. Tell your Sagittarius friends and see even the most resolute Muggles relate.

The foreboding feeling of my own chronology….bahahahaaaaa YES this is on point. I like that this part will end. Every day is like a History Channel documentary of myself in my head. May I please be playful and childlike again?
And that image is …um…The Everything around this period. From Herself’s righteous authority to the gnarly grumbling resignation of the beast below. Centaur’s dont give rides, so you can get off my back Miss Lady.
It’s been cool too, though, can’t deny. I’ve always wondered what it was like to feel like a grownup, so I’m glad I got the (transitory!) experience.

Well, I am not ignoring you guys, I just feel a bit like my words are frozen up at the moment! Like I am under a lake of frozen glass. That would be Saturn freezing my fire.

I have Libra rising, Sun in Scorpio, and Saturn in Sag – its been Saturn city for most of my adult life. I’ve learned to love it (thanks in great part to your positive take in your work Mystic!) …excited to see how this all plays out…

Does anyone have any data regarding Saturn to chart ruler transits? That’s next on Saturn’s checklist for me, my chart ruler has had Pluto on, or with in a degree either side FOREVER (like a year? 18 months? Ive lost count) so Im anticipating Saturn being the final burnishing after some major re-forging…but would be interested to hear anyone else’s stories 😀

I’m worried about my child’s father, a Sag, who has been working in a soul-sucking corporate job for 10+ years, then took a pause because he was fighting lymphoma (a success), then came back to this working hell and this summer finally quit. I was advocating for it partly because I was worried for him, this job was not doing him any good, and partly because we could thus switch parenting roles, and I got myself 2 months of being a weekend parent (this is dope, i enjoyed it tremendously). but he’s still without a job and his savings are… Read more »

I have Neptune at 3 degrees Cap and my sun at 28 Sag. I feel like I’ll still be having that Saturn vibe all next year as Saturn hits my Neptune and that conjunction keeps it lit.

Oh well. Maybe I should take a Pilates class.

Wow, this is exactly what Saturn in Sag feels like- I was born with Saturn in Sag in my first house-and since late 2014 my life has been nonstop heavy. But, maybe because I have this sign at birth-this sign has also been very productive – I let go/stripped myself of everything that is not healthy or good in my life. It has been very difficult at times-I had to let go of a few relationships which were close, but not healthy. But, I’m coming out of this knowing myself better, feeling “equipped” to deal with life and whatever comes… Read more »

Yep! Gone are all the lower Sagg tendencies -and boy was I rocking those (grimace) – all replaced with a genuine love of spreadsheets, budgets, balanced eating plans and 5yr goal setting (I kid you not!)
I cannot ever imagine going back to the freewheeling carelessness I thought embodied “freedom” now that Ive seen what discipline can achieve. And boundaries! Omg, boundaries! who knew how important they were? (Or even what they were lol) Im with you on this Ale, life post Saturn is going to be a blast 🙂

Me three! Sagg with Saturn in 4th house here. Sh*t has gone down for me since 2014 but right now I’m so grateful for Saturn helping me get my life together and on track, and I’m really proud of the work I’ve put in on myself. Like you say, Ale, I’m in a much better place now than when the return started – I’m also very excited about post-Saturn return life. And the last few days I have started to look at myself differently – seeing the strength in decisions and changes that I’ve made, rather than viewing them as… Read more »

My boyfriend is Sag-rising and I didn’t realize it but I met him at the tail end of a ton of crap for him, not sure if it had anything to do with him having Saturn transiting his 12th house. My mom is Sag-sun and she’s been going through a bunch of stuff, huge life transitions. I hope for both it eases up soon.

I’m thinking it has everything to do with Saturn transiting his 12th. I’ve had this too – almost died twice – and even though it’s now in my 1st the after effects are long lasting. Hopefully things will be improving once it’s out of Sag. Hugs to you all.

Saturn has been squaring my moon and Mercury all year but pulls out of it on the 11th. This has been one of the worst years so far. I assume it does get better (Jupiter/Sun) but I also know it may not. Sitting with loneliness and being alone have been two things I have become very good at.

Just when I think Saturn is done with me, another surprise challenge comes up. If I still have a job by the time the solstice rolls around, that will be enough for me.

I know that Saturn in a sign feels like an anvil, but I can assure that us Virgoans (actually Gemini with Virgo Rising) cannot wait to be set free either.

hmmm…it’s a work night and am letting myself off the 5am alarm of the last god knows how long (buns of steel, people) to watch the Stones double feature on ABC. Maybe it’s Eros into Sagg. Maybe its Venus nearly in my natal V in Scorp, and the influence of watching Keef Richards (another Sagg/Scorp rising/Venus). But 4 first time in a very long time, my 1st reaction to your post, Mystic, was… “Fuq yeah”. Oh, and I just signed up for Argentine Tango lessons. And am planning birthday and New Years Eve this year – both of whiich have… Read more »

Mystic, you nailed this description of Saturn in one’s Sun sign. I will never forget how hard it was when Saturn was in Libra.. it was like metaphysical weight lifting workouts every damn day. Saturn in Scorpio, my solar 2nd house, sucked a little less. I have a newfound respect for Saturn (witnessing my husband’s and mothers second and third Saturn return in Scorpio) and they got through them both without a lot of sorrow. I now got to the “chop wood carry water” stage if working with Saturn…it will.be entering my 12th house…another 12th house haunted journey of endings,… Read more »

Thank you xx Ironically my card for the day was 6Wands.. which feels supported by this post. The loose (and I use that word loosely) notion of success (another loose word which may just be the result of enduring the transit) in 6 weeks (close enough to 45 days for me) had me thinking I might have enough fire left. The other alternative timeframe of 6 months was greeted with just no… too far off to hold a vision after the daily grind though there are longer timeframes in play. By that time I’ll have Saturn/Mars to contend with and… Read more »

oh yehhhh … that saturn-transit-to-moon shizzz…according to Vedic astrology it encompasses the 30 degrees prior and post the sign of your moon (3 signs in total) and boy do you know you’ve been saturned after one of these… I had it right before Saturn got to my Sagg sun-neptune-jupiter-mercury array …the only way to deal is apply your own sandpaper to the rough bits before Saturn takes an industrial sander to them.

That’s what I’ve got coming up. Cap-Aqua-Pisces. 6° Aqua. But Aqua Moon’s reputed to feel it least. Hoping. I couldn’t hack too much more scheissenfest.

I’ve had to deal with constant problems with technology. Machines are just not working, I sat next to someone on the train this afternoon and their laptop stopped working. My empathy and personal electromagnetic force field have had lights flicker, scales stop working for me count to the gram and sensors on doors failing. People are even wanting to be friends with me and unpack their emotional backstories with me. Eek! I am sensing I need to check for some Plutonic and Neptunium cluster conditions ahead. I love music and to try and soundtrack my way out, well I can’t… Read more »

I also experience this…flickering lights, wi-fi sputtering…complete strangers confessing, unloading on me then walk away.
Perhaps we were priests or priestess in another life.

That is interesting.
I was told I was a priestess in a past life when I had a tarot reading in 1995. He had also told my friend that she was too, so I assumed it was not true.

I can’t see why you wouldn’t have both been priestesses in a past life! We have millions of them. And you would attract people you are familiar with? S the priestess has a ring to it.

Not sure if I could actually live through another Saturn in Sag – with my Sun and Moon in Sag and my Saturn in Capricorn. Geez it has not been a picnic.

I’m so nervous about Saturn entering Cap in December. I have a Cap Sun and the whole Saturn-in-Sag, Uranus-in-Aries thing has been utter torture. I have moved SO MANY TIMES!!! But should I be worried about Saturn’s entry into my sun sign? I’m hoping Saturn will be friendly to my Taurus moon and huge Virgo stellium. (Yes, am very earthy) Any tips for a fed up Cappy?

I’m a Virgo Stellium too with Saturn in Cap and Cap my 7th where Moon Chart Ruler is and opp my sum. I’m foreboded AF; seeing Saturn and Moon are such buddies.
I’m so bloody sick of Pluto being there…till the year 2525.

Grapefruit is a Sag thing. Fruity crap is definitely not my thing, and especially if used to tart up a wishy washy brew. But Brew Dog is my Devil, and i am the Phantom, old Lee Falk style.

No no, VirgoStellium, dont worry your head. If Saggitarians can do an eon of Saturn, you guys certainly can. You’ll be fine. I’m guessing it will resonate in a familiar and tingly way, like you can finally get some bits together that have been haunting you with their chaos. I am an earth-free Sag, with loads of watery pieces to go with the fire. I am Saturn’s migraine. But even for me it’s been good. A total slog, but good. Don’t stress. Deep breath & enjoy the nice workout in the fresh brisk air.

Saturn has pulverized my chart. Non-stop since 2015. Life before and after a Saturn transit is two planets.

Yes. This is my Saturn Return and Saturn is in my 3rd house. IDK what Mystic is even talking about in terms of where your Sun is. This shizz has been real. Major transformations. But the feelings described in the above post very much feel like where I am and what I just went through. I am a Pisces in the 5th house (Pisces overlaps my 5th/6th house), so I am not really looking forward to dealing with more of this in just a few years time. I am very much looking forward to my Saturn Return being over. Mystic,… Read more »

I’m also curious as my natal Saturn is at 5° of Sag, and my natal sun is at 23° of Gemini and I’m Scorpio AC. So it’s been intense Saturn transits (1st house, Saturn return, then Saturn opposite sun) since… end of 2011? I’m looking forward to Saturn in Capricorn but also it’s going to be transiting my 2nd house for another 2.5 years yet. She works hard for her money so you better treat her right! 😉

Managing Saturn with self-discipline is easier than the external blocks Saturn delivers on your path.

I have found Stoic philosophy very helpful. Definitely recommend it.

It’s weird but it feels like Saturn has been really hard on my 2nd house and at home which us Aqua so I guess it has been pinging off natal planets that I haven’t realised or too crap at astro-school stuff to work out. It will be so good when Sat finally leaves.
