Saturn Transit in Capricorn

Saturn Transit in Capricorn

When transiting Saturn enters Capricorn, he enters his own home where he is considered in domicile. Indeed, Saturn is the ruler of this sign, and of course is at the top of his potency when located here, functioning in a rather well-mannered way. Saturn is considered to be a rather difficult planet to handle, called many times the grand malefic of the skies. Yet when traveling his celestial road through Capricorn, we can say that the difficulties that he imposes are a lot less intense than in all the other signs. Saturn is a rather slow-moving planet, which needs approximately 29 years to make a full circle around the zodiac. Thus, he spends around 2 and a half years transiting each sign. As a planet, he is of a rather…

The Saturn Return

The Saturn Return

What exactly is the Saturn Return and why is everyone so scared of it? Is it possible to make this period softer? These are just some of the questions that naturally arise to everyone who knows this term and is interested in astrology. This is the first article of a series on Saturn Return; we will try to create a step-by-step blueprint which will be also later published as an ebook. A Saturn Return occurs when the ringed planet returns exactly to the same point in the sky, as it was during the moment of the native’s birth. Planet Saturn makes a full cycle around the zodiac in approximately 29 years, and a native might experience the first return anywhere between his 28th and 30th birthday. These differences happen because…

Natal Saturn Retrograde

Natal Saturn Retrograde

Saturn, the ringed gas giant planet, is in retrograde motion for approximately 4 and a half months every year. This means that more than one-third of the population has the planet retrograde in their natal chart. A retrograde natal planet in the chart means that its energies are turned inwards, at least for the beginning of the native’s life. Any planet being retrograde during the native’s birth indicates that the planet and the things it rules in his life are strongly connected with previous lives through karma. As Saturn itself is a planet strongly connected with Karma, its retrograde motion shows us a lot of unfinished matters from previous lives. During the present lifetime, it will become a tough, yet a necessary teacher, in order to balance any possible karmic…

Natal Jupiter Retrograde

Natal Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System, is in retrograde motion for approximately 4 months every year. This means that approximately one-third of the population has the planet retrograde in their natal chart. A retrograde natal planet means that its energies are turned inwards, at least for the beginning of the native’s life. Any planet being retrograde during the native’s birth indicates that the planet and the things that it rules in his life are strongly connected with previous lives through karma. As Jupiter is the planet responsible for expansion, such a natal condition makes him expand inwards instead of manifesting in the material reality. It can act like a huge sponge, absorbing positivity from the surroundings. As Jupiter is the natural ruler of the 9th house, it tends…

Natal Saturn in the 12th House

Natal Saturn in the 12th house

Having Saturn in the 12th house is probably one of the most difficult placements a native can have. Especially if the planet is adversely aspected, its effect in the house of fears and restriction can lead to isolation and depression. As the 12th house rules fears, the presence of any malefic planet there can induce quite a lot of them. Saturn has a rather cold and restrictive energy, which can lead the native to self-limitation. He is frequently afraid to dream, which in turn leads to despair and melancholy. Many times, it is Saturn’s pessimism that actually keeps the individual away from achieving his inner wishes. The 12th house is responsible for the last 2 hours before birth, and Saturn’s presence may indicate a lot of pressure in the mother’s…
