Saturn Goes Direct In Capricorn
Saturn, the Lord of Karma, ruler of Capricorn and the tough love master himself, goes direct today after being retrograde since April. Saturn rules over hard-work, soul contracts and karmic lessons, and has been doing a number on our inner selves since the Spring.
When Saturn is retrograde there’s a destruction of our inner worlds that take place, showing us where the structures of our lives need more attention, strength, and focus, and where in our earthly tasks we need to step up our game.
Saturn going direct today will shift the energy from inside ourselves where it’s been helping us to rebuild the framework of who it is we are, how it is we think and feel about the foundations in our lives, and reworking our inner karma, to our exterior worlds. Whatever you’ve been working hard on, as far as your career goes, will finally start to move forward. The restrictions you’ve faced in all aspects of your life will suddenly be freed up, and the soul and karmic contracts that you’ve completed will now disappear.
Because Saturn has been in it's place of power in Capricorn, an earth sign, we’ve had no choice but to feel slowed down, unable to make things happen. And with that energy came anger, anxiety, and frustration. Deprivation is never fun, but it’s also a great motivator to put in the hard work to create something new preventing you from ever feeling that struggle again.
Saturn being a heavy hitting planet means that this energy is felt on a soul level more than anything. It effects each one of us in different areas of our individual natal charts and creates a reverberatory effect throughout our current life chapter as it begins to move forward. It will take approximately a month for Saturn to get up to it’s normal speed rotating and orbiting though the cosmos. And in that time, we will have another heavy hitting planet, Pluto, come out of its retrograde to implement the power and control we need to actually transform our lives.
Now that Saturn is direct, not only will we begin to feel the weight being lifted off of our souls, but we will see the goals and ambitions we’ve been working towards finally manifest in our realities.
