You’ve no doubt heard Saturn is about to change signs. Saturn spends 2.5 years
in each sign, so when he makes a change, it’s time to adjust your focus.
Most of all, you’re probably wondering what Saturn into Scorpio means for you. While this energy affects each sign – and each person – differently, there are
some common themes likely to emerge.
Saturn is the planet of tests and challenges. Rightly or wrongly, Saturn is
sometimes feared, but really, he needs a new press agent as experience shows his
cycles often help more than they hurt.
Saturn is the planet of boundaries and reality. If you’ve worked hard, stayed
grounded and made practical choices, Saturn’s influence can bring rewards for
past efforts. If you’ve been kidding yourself about something or someone
important, you may find Saturn more difficult, as, under his influence, you’re
forced to face facts.
Saturn helps you grow up and work with reality. He shows you how to take
responsibility for creating lasting structure and commitments. This might first
mean consciously leaving a professional or family situation or ending a
relationship you’ve out grown, or is no longer serving you.
Saturn is linked to the concept of contraction, and his influence brings a ‘back
to basics’ theme. As life contracts under Saturn, you refocus on what matters
most, making it easier to de-clutter, simplify and streamline your life. It’s
the ultimate ‘less is more’ energy.
The more effort you put in under Saturn, the better long-term foundations you
create. Along the way, you may have to make tough choices, but doing so helps
you honour your deepest truth, and ensures you grow. After all, William Butler
Yeats wrote “Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing or that,
but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”
Scorpio is a sign of mystery, magic and deep loyalty. Regardless of your sign,
the opportunity to intensify your connection to truth, and become more honest,
is possible as Saturn moves through Scorpio. Profound new insights are likely as
Saturn’s diligent energy manifests through private Scorpio and helps you dig
deeply into previously secret subjects.
Saturn’s journey through the signs means he moves from one modality group to
another every 2.5 years. Since October 2009, Saturn has been in Libra,
influencing Libra, as well as the other cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and
