Saturn enters Sagittarius today!



Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2013. and now leaves it for good on Sept 17th.!  Everyone was affected by this intense transit in some way, although some more than others.

We had a brief preview of Saturn moving into Sagittarius earlier this year, but then he dipped back into Scorpio for the summer, just to bring one last push to whatever it was we were working on for the last 2.5 years.

Sometimes its easier to see what something was about when we are able to get the bird's eye view and look back on it.

What happened in the fall of 2013?  You embarked on a mission of transformation, letting go or healing in some way at that time. Saturn in Scorpio demands we go deep, and we emerge healed in some way at the end of it.  Many of us lost loved ones and now we're moving on and dealing with that loss in our lives.  In effect, everyone is now moving on in a new way, with some sort of transformation and healing having taken place on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.

Saturn in Sagittarius is a much lighter energy thank goodness.  For more info on what you can expect, check my post Saturn in Sagittarius.

Sagittarian Sun, Moon and Asc people are really going to feel this transit the most, or anyone who has personal planets in Sag.

Saturn enters Sag today, and goes forward through to 16.24 degrees of Sag before he turns retrograde.  The thing with Saturn transits, is that they are in effect from the moment that they move forward toward aspecting a point in your chart. So, for example if you have your Sun at 14 degrees of Sag, guess what, you're going to feel that Saturn starting tonight!!!  Yes, Saturn is interesting that way.  Some transits you only feel when they get very close to the planet in your chart, but not Saturn.  Saturn starts from day one.  However, if you have a significant point at 17 degrees of Sag, you won't feel Saturn until later next year because he goes retrograde before he hits it.

So, for everyone Sagittarius born from  Nov 22nd to Dec 8th, you're in the midst of a Saturn transit to your Sun starting tonight.  You may even get a little symbolism tonight or tomorrow as to what this transit may mean for you - sort of like Saturn saying hello. In general, Saturn transits bring more work and we take om more responsibility - this can be when someone buys a house, or gets married or get pregnant.  It can be when we take on that big project at work that requires long hours, or when we start our own business. It can be when we need to start taking more responsibility for aging parents, or simply when we start to look toward consolidating for our future. Saturn can also show us where we need to pull back, as well as make us accountable if we've been treating others, or even ourselves, unfairly.  Saturn doesn't let anyone get away with much of anything, which is why Saturn represents authority.

Some famous Sagittarians who are going to be feeling this Saturn transit starting tonight are:

Scarlett Johansson
Britney Spears
Miley Cyrus (backlash?)
Tyra Banks
Ian Somerhalder
Julianne Moore
Amanda Seyfried
Ben Stiller
Katherine Heigl
