During its nearly 3 year transit of Capricorn, Saturn will also conjoin Pluto but not until January 12, 2020, adding more intensity and power that will particularly affect systems, institutions, societies, government, etc. Pluto in Capricorn will slowly but surely restructure these from the ground up so that the foundations will be more secure for the future and dead wood will be removed - often painfully but very surely. I am telling you this now because we shall slowly feel this very important conjunction building up, especially once Saturn enters Capricorn next week.
How will this affect us personally? It will be a time of discipline and structure which will be more difficult for some than others. However, if we make use of this disciplined energy, we can take more responsibility and achieve those things that previously have only been dreams, ideas or visions.

Saturn in Capricorn
Saturn will enter Capricorn on December 21 and will demand (and that is the word) that we get out of our fantasy world and see things as they really are - however painful that may be. It is calling for us to get real and face things squarely as they are so that we can then, through disciplined effort, change them for the better.
Saturn is also demanding that we have integrity; that we are accountable; honorable and spiritual in our thoughts, words and actions. This most advanced planet that astrologers of old called "The Grim Reaper" has now wisely been named "The Great Teacher" for that is what it is. It is teaching us that we are here to learn and evolve and is helping us to do that rather than constantly focusing on the inessentials. It is teaching us that we are responsible rather than having a victim mentality for all that happens to us. It is teaching us about the great Law of Karma.
So, how do we cope? We embrace opportunities that come our way and do the necessary work to learn and to grow with these opportunities. We shall have to face and overcome fears; we shall have to learn the lessons of detachment and through this we can gain great strength and wisdom.
Saturn demands that we mature and grow up - whatever age we are now. It does not deal with illusions or fantasies or excessive emotionalism but calls for control; it calls for us to take a look at our lives and see if there is any areas where we prefer to bury our heads in the sand. Now is the time to emerge, to be bold, courageous and strong!
There will be times over the next three years that we may not feel we are getting the respect we deserve. With Saturn, we have to earn it. There are no short cuts, so just continue and work diligently. Do not be so concerned about others and what they think of you, or about being honored or appreciated because with Saturn in Capricorn things take time....do not push for things but be patient and if you do this you will eventually be seen as a person of wisdom and integrity; a person of authority and responsibility in your own right. Once you have achieved these things nothing can take them away - only you.
Good luck! We're all in this together and will see profound changes in the world with these heavy-duty planets - Saturn and Pluto - both in the heavy-duty sign of Capricorn. I look at it like this - humanity has created a world of chaos through his own making; now we have a chance to change things through facing facts as they are and working hard and diligently individually and together to change our world for the better.
