Saturn In Capricorn Strategy Number One

Filed in Saturn

Saturn in Capricorn is not here for a good time. It’s here for a long time. Until March 2020, to be exact. Saturn reigns over the constellation of Capricorn, Capricorn or Capricorn Rising people and Aquarius to a lesser extent. Saturn Vibe is going to be super-potent for the next several years. Not only that but Saturn is moving toward an alignment with Uncle Pluto, strengthening both parties. What if time itself became the cool new crypto-commodity? When Saturn is in Capricorn, time cannot be managed via your usual perceptions or tactics. Quick fixes become slow restoration jobs. There are no tricks of the trade – there is only trade-craft. Saturn in Capricorn is radical authenticity but accomplished in a stripped-back, no time/attention/money left for lies sort of a style. It is also the safe haven during the Transition Zone of April-May.

Saturn in Capricorn Strategy Number One may seem ravingly obvious: Sleep. Remember, Saturn this empowered forces a reinvention of the basics. And what is more basic than sleep? Yes you may think sleep is the realm of Neptune or even of Hypnos, the ancient God of Sleep. But sleep is Saturnine in that it rejuvenates, it allows us to time travel (Saturn is God of Time) and is a potent, primal health modality that – like walking – is actually free. You need no equipment, no money, no booking in, no training. It’s simplicity is stark.

Saturn This Empowered Forces A Reinvention Of The Basics

So, for extra edge, get your sleep game sorted to a higher level. You know the drill. No late night phone googling benders that (1) fill your mind with extraneous material and (2) beam light straight into your Third Eye/Pineal Gland. Yes to the simple sensual pleasure of clean sheets.  A nocturnal concoction to inspire restorative dreams an hour before bed. A pre-sleep ritual to suit. I have been using the ‘Bedtime’ app built into the latest iPhone. It’s super-basic but it works as a reminder to respect sleep.

Even if you don’t think sleep is vital to restore your astral persona, you know it is considered essential to cognition and mental health by totally Muggle scientists. It’s beauty lies in its accessibility. It is illogical to skimp on sleep but then spend excess money or time on a ten day retreat or meditation instruction. Sleep first makes sense. It is also sensationally Saturnine in that the optimal number of sleep hours is said to be eight hours. Eight is a Saturn number. And power-sleeping is a Saturnine weapon against all the forces that would drag you down and disempower you.

I sleep a minimum of 8 hours night, without it I cannot function at all. My vice is going to bed late though. Having more structured job hours is helping.

I also sleep on my back with just a folded up towel as a pillow now. It has done wonders for my neck pain! We have an epidemic of forward head posture and sleep on these tall pillows that just exacerbate the issue, I can’t believe I didn’t figure this out before…

This reminds me of one other brill sleep aid I’ve started using that I think is very Saturn — a sandbag over the hips for a sense of grounding.

SUPER feeling this post. One interesting sleep hygeine thing is the theory of the meridian clock in Traditional Chinese Medicine — I’ve found that if I get to sleep before 1am (or 2am during Daylight Savings Time) — the time for the liver meridian to recharge itself and for one’s shen to wander in dreams — I sleep much more deeply. That said, in theory it’s best to be sleeping during gall bladder time (two hours earlier) which I tried last night — only to wake up at 3am and have an impossible time getting back to sleep till dawn,… Read more »

While I have great respect for the TCM knowledges I think they have to be adapted for 1) the times and 2) the geography. Thus, myself, living in a subtropical zone , that precious and vital 8 hours might not happen in one long continuous night sleep. Especially nearing the full moon and during the heat of summer, it makes way more bio-sense to rest, preferably on the Earth, during the heat of midday and early afternoon and have a two or three sleep night. I read somewhere that having 2 sleeps per night, interspersed with some light or meditative… Read more »

Saturn’s my ruler and I struggle a lot with feeling like I don’t have enough time, time is passing too fast, etc. The best thing anyone ever said to me to get me to prioritize sleeping is “Don’t steal tomorrow’s work from yourself today”(he was the son of a roofer who taught him this, to start work early and end before dinner), it helped me to realize that when you cut into sleep time you are literally sapping the next day’s energy. Now if only someone could tell me how to not feel like there’s a beautiful party I’m missing… Read more »

My love, acupuncture can fix excessive urination <3 Seriously, between this and the mouth-related stuff, it’ll get you fixed right up if you’re game. I’m severely needle-phobic but tolerate it very well so long as I keep my eyes closed and don’t watch – my acupuncturist uses the Kiiko style needles which are significantly thinner. You don’t even feel them, even in the feet! If you don’t care for needles, know that I’m so irrationally phobic myself that a good 95% of the time I get blood drawn I cry, whimper, and/or pass out. 🙂 Pretty sure I either OD’d… Read more »

My partner’s the same – he actually did get the intracardiac injection routine when he was 11. (Doctor omitted to check whether he was allergic to penicillin, administered some & a few minutes later he just collapsed & heart stopped). He has been known to faint when seeing IV being prepared & once he just bolted out of the clinic when getting tetanus shot, lol. But he doesn’t have a problem with acupuncture – such are the benefits that like you, he just overrides the trauma response. Our TCM doctor also practices Korean Hand Acupuncture, which he sometimes uses in… Read more »

and the less booze in your system, the more dream cycles you’ll have, the more rested you’ll feel, the better the quality of the whole thing. in fact, no booze at all is best – a good time to give the stuff up for good. perhaps? i did as it’s the single worst thing for menopause and my sleep got SO much better. hard to do, but worth it – that sounds like saturn work to me 🙂

No booze, and for me (a slow metabolizer of caffeine), no black tea or coffee (green tea seems to be just fine). I watch tv before bed with my boyfriend and I know that will have to go too, I sleep fine but my dreams aren’t as vivid.

Gosh, so spot on – the night before last, I stayed up later than normal, watched tv with my family (an interesting non crappy show on kids with autism) – and then realised I was not wound down from my day (a new, very stimulating media job), and was now unable to relax and getting more anxious and uptight by the second. I had to do a full 30 minute meditation to calm down. So last night, I declined tv, lay on my shakti mat straight after a shower, played relaxing music, and slept like a baby :). It was… Read more »

Funny, I am a cap rising and Saturn is my ruler and I just bought a couple sets of high dollar sheets. I am of the opinion that my sheets are an investment to me and I want the best quality for the best night sleep so I bought the expensive 1000 count sheets (on sale of course) because I want only the best for my sleep. I already sleep like crazy, if I don’t get enough hours in a night I am literally in a zombie dazed funk all day. On the weekend, I can literally sleep ALL day.… Read more »

<3 to this! Yes! Thanks for the license to SLEEP! 😉 I love sleeping and it's been a secret weapon of mine forever for my health, mood, rejuvenation, etc. I think being a good sleeper has been one of the key reasons I still look quite young for my age, too. Conversely, it is so noticeable to me when I don't get enough sleep. I feel and am wretched. I'm a Vata type in Ayurveda and I think with this constitution and keyed-up nervous system, we lose our sh*t and go down fast if we don't get rest. I've had… Read more »

Everyone is different for bedtime concoction….I don't often need one but will take something if I'm stressed in general or had or anticipate a stressful day. If I have anything with too much liquid it will make me get up in the night to pee, so that's counterproductive. I like to use Motherwort tincture, which reduces my stress and helps me wake up happy, too, and also curbs hot flash/night sweats which I only get very occasionally, like once a… Read more »

An Ayurvedic meal consumed with a warn2hot glass of water with 20ml of apfel cider vinegar (with the mother). Be well hudrated before hand.

Warm, or hotter if you can manage it. You consume it with meal prepared using Ayurvedic principles. There is ample information on the web. Ayurvedic is reputed to be one of the oldest food regimes there is in existence. It is tailored to your body type. They are: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. There is ways to find out on the web as to what body type you are. However l suggest finding someone local. You are in Italy? I’m sure there is practioners there. I follow it where l can.

I wish I could sleep properly. No hard time in falling asleep, actually I can’t usually keep my eyes open past 10 pm but come uber early morning I wake up and then fall asleep and then wake up again and I am never well rested when I get up. I remember the few times when I actually closed my eyes and opened it 8 hours later: my mind was crystal clear, my mood was great and I was in top shape. But last time I think it was some 10 years ago maybe? I’d love to find a tip… Read more »

ah time…I have been learning how to be more accurate and responsible with my time management.. So often I tell myself I can “make up time” in various ways, especially on my commute. These past few months I’ve been living in a new place – so I am adjusting from being near the subway that comes every 5min, to being near a commuter train which comes every 1/2 hour during peak times. So it’s much more rigid and I have had to learn to be waaaaay more precise with my leave time in the mornings. It’s been quite the adjustment… Read more »

I’ve been really into quality sleep since approximately 3rd pass of Saturn conj my natal Neptune, about 4-6 months ago. After a lifetime of being a 5 hrs of sleep a night person I started being aggressive about sleep hygiene (no screens in the bedroom!), laying down at the same time (9:30 no exceptions!), stretching before I lay down (tight hams and hips contribute to nighttime leg pain and waking up mid-sleep!), and a sleeping concoction of 10mg of melatonin + 1000mg of valerian root. It’s probably the melatonin that ensures I clock out by 10:30pm but all the other… Read more »

Very interesting take! I see Saturn more as representing the second level of Maslow’s Hierarchy (safety and security) rather than the first, though, which IMO seems more Plutonic in nature. Yes they’re still no-frills basics, but they don’t quite put you in the dire circumstances the way the lack of those Plutonic baseline needs will. A lack of the first will kill you; a lack of the second – though uncomfortable and difficult – would render one stunted yet still able to survive. For reference, I lived a considerable chunk of my young life without those second level needs being… Read more »

Sara

You have an interesting take too :). I think Saturn and sleep in this context is just making sleep part of that adult behaviour you described, rather than as something that you sacrifice as part of adulting. As for neptune, whenever it’s aspected, I can feel it, because I feel like I’m stoned – heavy, sleepy and slow. I definitely sleep more and heavily, but it feels like a departure from adult behaviour if you get my meaning.

LiberatingVenus
LiberatingVenus

TY! There are people who do sacrifice it as part of “adulting”, though – see the workaholism and “There’s not enough hours in the day” facets of Saturn. For some sleep is a necessary evil rather than an opportunity for restorative (IMO Neptunian) rest and relaxation. Can’t relate; my dreams are such an important part of my spirituality and who I am I would be so depressed if I didn’t sleep. Gotta have balance (says Libra, LOL)!

Love this picture of the conch shell, like she’s dialled into another dimension. Sleep is tricky for me, I get too much or too little. Kids are still needing a parent at bedtime etc. due to shared room + different ages cognitively and otherwise. Staying asleep is an issue with hip pain. Find the best way to get me to sleep currently is a tiny Mary Jane in the moonlight. It makes the phone seem abhorrent & the sleep more attractive while calming pain. Really hated reishii, made my dreams baroque horror films.. I want to grow an angel trumpet… Read more »

Hey sphinx. One of those strange facts that i remember when studying the angel trumpet tree – Brugmansia (nightshade family & cousin to Datura) for homeopathy, is that a visiting lecturer who had lived in the amazonian region of Peru, told us that some tribes there made a tea from the flowers of brugmansia which they gave in tiny amounts to children who misbehaved badly, because they believed that the ancestors would appear to them in dreams and give them a good lesson (freak them out in a spiritual way) So wonder if the flower under the pillow custom that… Read more »

I am in a massive transition (had to leave job, financial crap, new health regime, own business phantasies, shitloads of terror from ex working environment/qi vampires), restless and insomniac, having massive trouble dealing with/fencing off the negativity that is being projected onto me.

Yes, if you don’t mind my saying from experience, we become sort of energetically “porous”, like a depleted bone, when we’ve struggled with negative energy. I may be Piscean with strong twelfth house, but I also have strong planets in all the Earth signs, though not lovely comfortable trines, generally squares and opps. I notice it takes me a long while to process the toxic energy, and step by step re-build good body and etheric strength after an onslaught. The best restful sleep gets quite broken by mental anguish processing, and also the actual physical effects of cortisol, pain and… Read more »

Yes, glorious sleep. This last Full Moon completely screwed up my sleep. I think i only slept about 10 hrs in 3-4 days. Finally slept for about 8hrs last night, and when i arose this morn i swore i’d get my act together regarding sleep habits – then i see this post.

Love the top picture – nothing like a large horse conch shell on your pillow … the original sleep app.

Weird Mind immediately agreed that a horse conch shell trumps a horse head in the bed any day.

I changed my bedsheets over from nice dark smoulder-y charcoal grey (which I still like) to white, and hung all the clothes that were on the front of my wardrobe, in the actual wardrobe. I took off the overhead lampshade so I could change the crappy dead globe to a brighter one (helps that it is not one of those blah fluorescent energy efficient coils) and discovered that the room felt bigger with just the spartan shining globe sans paper lantern. Which was also dusty, so I cleaned that off too and left it in my “cbf dealing with this… Read more »

I use the Smiling Mind website as a sleep hack. It’s basically a free meditation site for people that don’t dig all the crap that usually goes with meditation. It’s mindfulness for the new age atheist. And yes definitely no heavy convos or caffeine a few hours before bedtime. A small carbohydrate snack with some fats and protein can aid sleep for people who struggle with anxiety and can’t actually stay asleep.
