Saturn enters Capricorn Dec 20 2017
Capricorn is the sign of it’s rulership. It will reside in that sign for the next 3 years, [minus a brief forward foray into Aquarius from March to July 2020]. And further, the Sun, shortly after it enters Capricorn at the Solstice on Friday Dec 22 AEDT will join with Saturn to set the seal on the birth of a new era where Saturn reigns supreme.
Here’s an amplification of the Saturn planetary archetype to help you gain an understanding of the times we are about to live through.
