Saturn in Sagittarius is ultimately dealt Aces on looking for meaning in life. In other words, while we all may have an inner desire to find meaning as life rolls along, the Saturn in Sagittarius native will have a far stronger pull – and sometimes a noticeable stronger anchor – in seeking + finding meaning to existence. The Hermetic axiom “as above, so below” is a simple, succinct mantra for this energetic field of experience. The experiencer usually has to undergo some kind of loss of faith in life as Saturn’s gravity pulls one to learn through its hexagonal vortex or storm. The opportunity for internal/external freedom presents itself through that loss of faith – whether through an initial dogmatic upbringing turned on its side or through a peak experience where whatever is termed ‘God’ is met with more directly. Or… through an incessant rebellion + mistrust in authority of all sorts. However the path unfolds for the Saturn in Sagittarius individual, the purpose can be clearly felt to create individual meaning for one’s life + existence. And, Sagittarian energy (ruled by the expansive + benevolent Jupiter) is about JOY – the native just has to get past whatever roadblocks Saturn has erected to get there. How can YOU get there? You have the answers inside, but it might help to dialogue more through a reading…
SATURN IN CAPRICORN
Saturn in Capricorn is at home! This position amplifies the Saturn energy – no matter what house it shows up in. Capricorn + Saturn carry keywords like authority, success, honor, ambition, achievement, etc. Things of the outer, public life. With this placement, one may have experienced a rather authoritative or burdensome (or both) mother/father figure – usually one with a focus on material values. Due to such a narrow view, the emotional body of the Saturn in Capricorn native tends to get neglected or entangled in some sort of complex with the dominant parental figure. This energy is essentially about one’s “role” in life, and the Saturn in Capricorn individual must eventually will himself to create his own role. Saturn tends to slow things down though… so the cautious climb to the peak one is seeking is usually met with obstacles, delays, and restrictions. It is an arduous process for most. Ultimately though, the Saturn in Capricorn individual will, along the way, realize the beauty of free will itself. When the energy is really embraced and harnessed, he or she can absolutely receive the recognition desired. For this energy signature, freedom and success go hand-in-hand.
SATURN IN AQUARIUS
Saturn in Aquarius is like the Steve Jobs in innovation, where personal recognition just flows from a strong commitment + dedication to bring something to the collective. In early life, the Saturn in Aquarius individual will most likely be that – an individual. In some form or another, this energy signature tends to stand alone. Even in a crowd or with others, there is often a felt sense of separateness. Freedom for the Saturn in Aquarius native can be found when the sense of not belonging is met with taking the lead. Owning one’s differences can be difficult, but when it is, a shining light beacons the group. Of course, as with all of life, there is a paradox to deal with for the Saturn in Aquarius energy: some with this imprint may feel scarily ordinary. Their ordinariness, too, cuts them off from the totality of group life because they do not like being boxed into a label like “ordinary.” Again, they are fraught with the task of taking the lead somehow – for the collective good. Underneath it all, the Saturn in Aquarius native is inclined to see where things are heading. He or she knows what the collective needs to progress… and, with the help of the few they truly call ‘friend,’ new communities + ways of thinking, being, or working in the world can emerge.
SATURN IN PISCES
Saturn in Pisces is a rather crepuscular energy: it lives between two worlds. Here we have both endings + beginnings, night + day, earth + spirit, etc. All of it – the duality is spliced. Individuals born with Saturn in Pisces tend to lead lives in open service or in literal/figurative prisons – sometimes both (simultaneously even). No matter how it shows up, this energy tends to be naturally in accordance with a grander service to the Whole. Basically, when a very earthy, grounded, and honor-bound planet like Saturn meets up with Piscean energy, all of Saturn’s natural workings are dissolved. Defenses + structures are obliterated. The Being holding this imprint is often left feeling very vulnerable/raw in any and all environments. Yet, and even though it may feel out of one’s control, the Saturn in Pisces individual holds a unique beauty for all of the world to see: they help others to remember who they are… who True Self is (and sometimes, why). The freedom for any Saturn in Pisces native is, in short, to be authentically Self. Issues arise when Saturn energy is tapped into to try to protect the Self – it doesn’t work, and the path must go inward. Ultimately, Saturn in Pisces individuals are tasked with the responsibility to believe they are always safe + on path by connecting more deeply with themselves on a much broader level. In this way, they serve… and serve well.
