Your Saturn in Capricorn Horoscope


Saturn in Capricorn for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

Your achievements thus far in life are in the spotlight now, Aries, and you may feel that your status is being scrutinized or tested. In your career, this can be a rewarding time, but never forget that a higher position comes with greater responsibility and more duty. You’re being challenged to live up to all that you could be, and if you’re not quite there yet, your shortcomings will be exposed in a very public way.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

Shifting priorities in faith and beliefs may feel disconcerting, Taurus, but in truth you’re discarding superficialities now and getting to the heart of the matter. Your whole worldview may change during this Saturn transit and your own increasing personal responsibilities will be at the heart of that. It’s a good time to find peace in meditation and to reflect on your oneness with the rest of humanity.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

Saturn plays financial and emotional taskmaster during this transit, Gemini. If you’re in financial debt, you may have to pay up. If you’re in emotional debt, it’s time to repay the kindness or understanding of others. Saturn may reign in your passion for some time, but you can express love through heartfelt commitments to your chosen partner.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

Your love life is under scrutiny while Saturn transits your relationship zone, and this can be an uncomfortable time. Expect your relationship to be tested, Cancer, perhaps severely – but Saturn never destroys anything which serves you. If your relationship is failing, it may end, but you have the tools and the wherewithal to save it if you wish. Make wise choices about what matters most.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)

Intense pressure at work is a hallmark of this transit for you, Leo. The good news is that you’re up to the job. Use your organization skills and the energy of ordered, structured Capricorn to streamline your work so that you can get more done with less energy. In terms of health, it’s important now that you release negative emotions, perhaps through talk therapy.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)

With serious, sober Saturn transiting your fun zone, you may think this is set to be a boring couple of years. Not so. Your creativity is increased, and your talents are shining strongly. Your challenge is one of confidence – don’t look for praise from others during this transit, Virgo. Find your own self-confidence and don’t be afraid to have fun while expressing your true self.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)

When Saturn transits Capricorn, it’s a good time to deepen your roots, whether that means expanding your current home or making a long-term commitment to your partner. Look to your past for unhelpful emotional attachments, Libra, and work on releasing those so that you feel more confident about the status quo. This is not a great time for moving home, but it’s wonderful for consolidation.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

This transit marks a couple of years when you’ll feel under intellectual pressure, Scorpio. You may be trying to fit in studying with adult responsibilities, or you may have the weight of a business on your shoulders and be struggling to find new and creative ideas. The answer lies in trusting your own abilities. Let go of the worry and allow your intellect to thrive.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

With Saturn transiting your money zone, your financial security remains stable, if not very exciting. It’s time to stop worrying about money, Sagittarius, and instead, think about your own sense of self-worth. Move away from materialism and learn to value the more intangible things in life, including your own abilities and admirable qualities. Work with Saturn constructively to improve your self-confidence.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)

With your ruling planet transiting your own sign, you may undergo a crisis of confidence or identity during this couple of years. The key is to remind yourself of how far you’ve come. Be proud of yourself; your strength during this transit must come from within, Capricorn. Give yourself far more credit than you normally do, because it’s much too easy for your inner voice to speak harshly.

Saturn in Capricorn for an Aquarius (Aquarius date: January 20 – February 17)

During this Saturn transit, self-limiting beliefs and fears that are holding you back are exposed. What are you going to do about it? Harness the ambition of Capricorn and Saturn and resolve to clear out your subconscious clutter once and for all. Handled well, this transit can be the start of a whole new you, Aquarius, but you must be willing to do the emotional work.

Saturn in Capricorn for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

Privacy will be important to you Pisces, and you might want to narrow your social circle a bit during this transit. You’ll enjoy your friends as much as ever, but you sense that your allegiances may be shifting slightly. You have no time for superficial relationships. Seek out like-minded souls with whom you can form a deeper connection, especially where you share a common purpose.
