Saturn, the Lord of Karma, is about to head home and we are all going to feel a profound shift in our lives. While in its home constellation of Capricorn, Saturn will be able to express all of its best qualities and will beam them down to Earth for all of us to learn and grow from.
So what are some of the things that Capricorn rules? To start with, Capricorn is the ruler of governments, politics and authority figures, so Saturn in Capricorn could bring extra focus on these areas, for good or bad. Some may fall and some may strengthen, some may change and evolve and some may be challenged or feared. Our goals, ambitions, and careers are also ruled by Capricorn, along with recognition and the public eye. Saturn and Capricorn are adulthood, sobering us with the realities of what we can and can not do. Under this influence you can see clearly where you're heading and assess.
- Is this the direction I want go? - What do I need to do to stay on course, or to change course?
It's a time to adjust your focus. Maybe your life has turned out differently than you expected. If so, now is the perfect time to embrace what your life is, not what you thought it should be or would be. Make a Plan: When Saturn enters Capricorn, it’s not the time to leave your life up to fate. Think about what you want from your job, your relationships and yourself, and then make a plan that can lead you to those goals.
This union will guide us all to return to our roots and to find a new sense of belonging with who we truly are. Saturn represents boundaries, responsibility and maturity. In fact, Saturn is often viewed as the harsh teacher in astrology. True, Saturn may give you hard lessons and demand that all homework is done, but as long as you embrace the lessons and work hard, Saturn will always reward you.
Saturn remains about 2 1/2 years in each sign, bringing us to core of needs to be done and to think long-term. Nothing is done in haste with either planet or sign, but will provide the stage for us to rise to our full potential. To see how this will influence you personally, look in your birth horoscope for planets, points and house in the sign of Capricorn.

Jupiter in Scorpio
Theme: Soul & Self-discovery
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, higher knowledge and the Avatar of truth, who helps us to find and follow our path of self-achievement.
From October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018, Jupiter descends into the swirling, secretive and sensual waters of Scorpio. While Jupiter was in Libra, we wanted things fair and democratic, now the scene is somewhat different. Scorpio’s fixation is on power - sexual and financial, with a drive to penetrate what lurks underneath the surface. Deep-diving Scorpio is known for being jealous and possessive, while experimental Jupiter is all about freedom. These energies are in a curious mix, pushing forward questions like:
"Where is the line between commitment and ownership?"
"How to maintain personal freedom within a permanent commitment?"
Scorpio is associated with death and reincarnation, and with the presence of Jupiter, interests in the paranormal, life after death and the esoteric realms will bring forward thoughts such as:
"Who am I beyond my body?"
"Have a lived before?"
"Where do I go when this life is over?"
Both planet and sign are all about investigating and questioning, so now is the time to dive into your own depths for answers rather than to follow mainstream ideas. In general when Jupiter comes around, luck and fortune are evident, and if you have the Sun, Moon or Rising in Scorpio, you will now gain a higher sense of understanding of your true identity and purpose.

Sun enters Gemini ~ May 21
Affirmation: I am inspired by the wonders of words
Key qualities: Playful, communicative, bright and joyful.
Ruling planet: Mercury
Today the Solar returns into the sign of youthful enthusiasm. Gemini, a highly flexible being who belongs in the element air, Air rules the mind, the intellect and the breaths of higher thoughts, and these sociable souls normally have plenty of bright ideas up their sleeve.
Like the twin symbolized by Gemini, their nature is colored by a duality which in many ways represents their skills of exchange and interaction. Sometimes this duality can come across as holding two different personalities and this can be tricky for other zodiac souls to follow. Geminis are often happiest when they are active and seem to follow a desire to see all, do all and above everything else, tell all. The back of this coin displays as restlessness, superficiality and at times with a slightly inconsistent and nervous behavior.
Yet, as the Gemini mind travels through the realms of possibilities, their spiritual purpose is about teaching us how ideas and inspiration can take form and how to spread all that is new. This is the gift of Gemini, the energy of change and discovery and to view life as a magic playground filled with opportunities.
Enjoy the sunshine Gemini!

Sun enters Aries ~ March 21
Affirmation: I love the adventure of my personal development
Key qualities: Enthusiastic, dynamic, initiating
Ruling planet: Mars
Today the Solar returns into the sign of courage, Aries, and ruled by Mars these self-assertive souls belong in the element fire, meaning they are spontaneous with plenty of drive.
Aries is the spontaneous fist spark of the astrological cycle, bringing a pure, forceful energy and an innocent thirst for exploration. Like children, they are unaware of the impossible and therefore they tend to succeed simply because they expect to do so.
Aries definitely are the leaders of the pack, however they prefer to initiate rather than to complete, gladly leaving the details to the more organized souls. Their struggle lies in collecting and directing their huge drives and impulses and when unable to do so it can display as restlessness, impatience or even downright anger.
All signs are incomplete and need to learn from their so called shadow sign. The fulfillment for Aries is to learn from the opposite energy provided by Libra. Aries represents the ego and action whereas Libra is all about partnership and harmony, and this is what they both have to integrate and balance. The spiritual purpose of Aries includes learning how to channel and handle large quantities of energy. Their gift to the World is motivation, encouraging us to get up on our feet and face the adventure of life. Enjoy the sunshine all Aries souls!

Sun enters Pisces ~ February 19
Affirmation: My fantasies inspire me to act in the World.
Key qualities: Cosmic, compassionate, emotional, psychic
Ruling planet: Neptune
Today the Solar returns into the sign of intuition and dreams, Pisces, inviting us to the wisdom of the element Water and the higher realms. Pisces is the 12th sign which completes the Astrological cycle and these people carry many of the characteristics of the eleven signs before them, plus some unique ones of their own.
They are adaptable souls with a quick understanding, they observe and listen well and are highly receptive to the shifts in atmospheres. Their mental satisfaction is found in dreams and meditations and they can travel into poetic states of consciousness that others have yet to reach. The back of that coin is that they are often misunderstood and can be persevered as spaced-out dreamboats. They are not big fans of practical matters but if needed they are quite capable, just not fond of hard work and gladly delegate it to others.
In relationship with a Piscean, it's valuable to know their need for solitude at times and in return they will bring romance and a flair of mysticism into your world. Their best partner is found in the Earth-signs Capricorn or Taurus as they provide a well needed solid foundation under their feet.
At its highest vibration Pisces light up our spiritual purpose. Their ability to read people, situations and current energies sets an example to tune into the unseen. This is perhaps the gift of Pisces, to reach an understanding of unity with all living things and to bring a little magic into our lives. Enjoy the sunshine Pisces!

Sun enters Aquarius ~ January 21
Affirmation: I bring excited new ideas to the World.
Key qualities: Free-thinking, visionary, eccentric
Ruling planet: Uranus
Today the solar returns into the 11th sign in Zodiac, Aquarius, surrounding us with the vibration of change, individuality, innovation and all that is progressive. Like all Air-signs they are verbal and intellectual, with a friendliness which makes them born to socialize and debate.
What stand this headstrong humanitarian out is perhaps their sense of higher ideals and how they will fight tirelessly for the less fortunate in our society. Aquarius truly are visionary souls and they love to spend time thinking about how things can be better. They are also quick to engage others in this process and even if lacking close friendships they do have more than the regular amount of acquaintances.
The back of this very outgoing personality is a tendency to be slightly emotionally detached, moody and unwilling to follow general systems. However, those born under this sign are dedicated to social change and determined to make a difference. Their spiritual purpose is to learn and teach new directions of thought and combine them to create a better World. They come with a fresh air of hope, reminding us that healing ourselves comes with healing others too. Enjoy the sunshine Aquarius!

Sun enters Capricorn ~ December 22
Affirmation: Each step I take brings me to success.
Key qualities: Persistent, ambitious, successful, organized
Ruling planet: Saturn
As the Sun returns into the resourceful and self-disciplined earth sign Capricorn, a solid wave moves over us. The element earth is a representation of all that is real and tangible, it rules the exploration of the material world, bodily health as well as financial concerns, and this is the foundation of our Capricorn friends.
Security is key for them, feeling most content with routines and a steady day-to-day rhythm of activities. The restrictive nature of Saturn ensures the correct degree of attention stays focused on the task in hand and these folks take great care of their work and progress, achieving success slowly but surely.
Capricorns are strong-willed and committed individuals who create their good fortune through perseverance. They are also associated with professionalism, dignity and a large measure of strength in character. The back of this coin could display as pure stubbornness and a resistance to take unnecessary risks. Risks equals stress in a Capricorn mind and might be the reason why they are known as the "late bloomer" in the Zodiac.
With a somewhat introvert energy they can be a little shy when it comes to matters of the heart and it would be rare to find them in a series of affairs or flirtations.Their spiritual gift to the World is to make us understand that life is what we make of it and how even routine chores can have their charm. Enjoy the sunshine Capricorn!

In Capricorn, and just in the middle of Thanksgiving, we will witness some intense expressions of love as Venus and Pluto join forces. The peak is on the 25th but due to the blend of energies, we have a possible heart shaker on our hands during the entire holiday.
Your romantic and social life, desires and values all fall under the spell of extremes with Pluto and Venus together up close an personal. You will a feel a need to seek or establish depth and meaning in your relationships. You could even attract this kind of experience now while someone may enter your life or circumstances arise that completely changes your outlook in love.
In any case, it's high tide for intimacy and passion and your general sense of reason may fly out the window during these days. Power issues, control and manipulation could also be at play over the next few days, so please be aware of this when dealing with others. On a good note, Pluto helps us to see beyond the surface layers and right into the soul underneath of any kind of partnership and it's in this realm where the possibility of a transformation can occur. I would say that's something to be thankful for as well.
If you have the Sun, Moon or rising (Ascendant) in Capricorn you will sense this the most. Cancer in the opposite end gives their fair share too, but no sweat - we will all sense something is cooking, not just the turkey.

Sun enters Sagittarius ~ November 22
Affirmation: Love expands my horizon!
Key qualities: Optimistic, adventurous, spiritual, outgoing
Ruling planet: Jupiter
As the Solar returns into the freedom-loving Sagittarius a sense of bliss and inspiration surrounds us. These souls belong to the element fire, meaning they are dynamic, enthusiastic, active and driven by pure energy.
What distinguishes them from the other fire signs is perhaps their psychological nature which brings with it a rush of bright, positive energy, often in all directions at once. These folks are seekers with a large supply of faith and they are quite confident that life will take care of them. Their free spirit and independent mind constantly leads them and that can be tricky to keep up with for the more grounded souls in the Zodiac. However, their ability to get people going makes them great leaders, if they stick with the mission that is.
Sagittarians are driven by a higher purpose in life and they have the ability to harness and combine their physical passions with higher wisdom - a potent cocktail of intuition and reason. With two sides to each coin, the back of this one displays as moodiness and at times with irresponsible behaviors. Yet overall they bring an energetic vibe which is fun to be around, reminding us of our limitless nature and our inner potential.
Their spiritual purpose is to make us become aware of that life is a wonderful journey that should be undertaken with enthusiasm and a positive open mind. Enjoy the Sunshine Sagittarius!

Sun enters Scorpio ~ October 22
Affirmation: I dive into the magical mysteries of life
Key qualities: Transformational, passionate, powerful
Ruling planet: Pluto and Mars
As the solar returns into the sign of extremes - Scorpio, a wave of emotions literally is rushing in. Scorpio belongs in the element water, and with a fixed modality everything they do is based upon their feelings and instincts with a tendency to never cave in.
Like all water signs they are born with a sixth sense, what sets them apart is perhaps their interest in the occult, the paranormal and other types of unknown mysteries. Two things fundamental to them are truth and trust and they will go far and beyond for those they love. The back of that coin is a tendency to discard both people and situations if they loose interest and they can be slightly vindictive if crossed.
There are two sides of everything and that certainly holds true for Scorpios. Same depths but with a less dramatic nature in favor of harnessing their opinion by being more objectively in tuned. Still, outgoing or not they are all compelled to discover and bring to light secret powers in order to gain wisdom, inner peace and healing. The way to go about though differs.
Scorpios carry a multi-faceted spiritual purpose, teaching us about the acceptance of the self and how powerful, magical and divine we truly are. They are the catalysts for transformation and progress and tend to reach higher then average. If using their native wisdom wisely, they can be very positive and inspirational leaders setting an example in will power and courage. Enjoy the sunshine Scorpio!
