Saturn in Capricorn Horoscopes - Your 2018 Success Plan

Posted on December 20, 2017

Okay, so, holy intense week, Batman, am I right? We’ve had a New Moon, a Mercury retrograde, a Mercury turn around to direct, the Sun entering Capricorn, the Winter Solstice, and now Saturn enters Capricorn. All of this one week before the holidays, and a New Year to boot!

That’s not even including the daily transits that Uranus, Jupiter, Mars, Pluto, and Venus, are sending our way. Every planet needs to have a say this week! It’s been intense, but it’s all good. No, really. It’s all good. Saturn entering Capricorn is one of the most important ones for you right now, and this is exactly what we are talking about today.

Today, we are talking to every zodiac sign about your Saturn in Capricorn horoscopes for 2018. So let’s get to it.

What is Saturn in Capricorn?

Saturn is one of the slowest moving planets. It travels through the universe like all others, but takes about two to three years in every sign. That’s why Saturn entering Capricorn is kind of a big deal this week, even bigger than the New Moon.

With a Mercury retrograde switch in the picture added to the mix, it’s like having an eclipse season fueled by the Energizer Bunny that goes forward, then back, then forward again, while Saturn uses his ring to put the big squeeze on any excess energy.

That’s what Saturn does in our lives. He is the karma master, one of the fathers of the Greek gods, and he spins responsibility and productivity into our lives. If we are doing something excessive that is not healthy or responsible, Saturn takes the paternal match to it, burns it to smithereens, then snuffs it out for us.

Saturn can be a bit of a buzz kill, that’s why its effects are feared, but they are always for our greater good.

The house Saturn is working during a Saturn transit will be the area of your life most impacted when it enters Capricorn this week. Saturn is leaving flighty, philosophical Sagittarius to enter serious, CEO minded Capricorn. Saturn rules Capricorn, so this is an interesting placement for the next three years of our lives.

Here’s where Saturn is working in your sun sign from December 20, 2017, to December 18, 2020. Follow these themes, and you are ahead of the game when it comes to planning your success for 2018 and beyond.

Aries – Ambition is everything

Dear Aries, are you happy with what you’re doing professionally? No, really. Don’t answer the way you think we want to know. Really be honest with yourself. Saturn is entering your tenth house of careers for the next three years and is going to be putting the squeeze on any activities that aren’t good for you.

Saturn will also send some opportunities your way, but father Saturn likes to call these ‘tests’. Pass those tests and your career will skyrocket over the next three years. The first step is to be happy with what you are doing. The next, you have to really want it. That’s easy if you like what you’re doing and ambition is everything.

Apply patience and responsibility, and a little bit of that fire sign spark, and you are singing.

Taurus – Information is power

Saturn is working your ninth house of big visions, foreign matters, and global affairs. If you want to conceptualize this house, think in Sagittarius themes. Sagittarius rules this house and is always thinking big, but they don’t just think big, they pursue the information to achieve those big dreams and goals. For the next three years, you are always going to be in curiosity mode.

When you find yourself in this place, it’s the flow of the universe beckoning you to keep pushing, keep researching, keep studying that “thing” you are curious about. Stick true to your grounded nature as an earth sign. This is a wonderful time for business travel as well. When you see the world, you unlock some of those answers - information is power, Taurus.

When you find it, Saturn helps you unlock some serious potential. Never stop asking questions.

Gemini – Negotiating transformations

Saturn is ruling your eighth house of shared resources, Gemini, and this is also the house of transformations. Shared resources could be anything from information to finances. As an air sign, you are pretty good with this, but you need to handle this mentally as well as physically. Don’t just think of money, think of all parties.

Secrets will play a big role in the next three years, and you may be keeping a lot, especially when it comes to taboo matters. Saturn is going to put the squeeze on anything that is in excess, but will help you to be productive in the sharing of resources. Any area of your life that does not have balance now, will when Saturn is done his time in Capricorn.

This is a high karma house. When Saturn restores balance, big changes are going to happen. Keep those intentions pure, stay balanced in all relationships, and you will really love the karma boomerang that finds you over the next few years.

Cancer – Make it or break it relationships

Any questions you have about your current relationship status, whether you are single or attached, are going to be answered once and for all over the next three years. A lot of Cancers are going to get married or engaged, or become single for good over the next three years. Your water sign nature is very compatible with Saturn in earth sign Capricorn.

None of it will be bad, so long as you are meeting your responsibilities and tending to your commitments like the nurturer you are. Saturn is in your seventh house of love for three years, and you will spend the time solidifying commitments, or making new ones. You will also be making a commitment to yourself.

If someone isn’t serving your best interests and Higher Self, Saturn will put the squeeze on here, and you will be so okay with that. You will finally see the Big Picture in love over the next three years. It’s not going to come to you. You’ll have to follow your heart, responsibly.

Leo – Old habits NEED to die hard

Saturn is working your sixth house of health and daily routines, Leo, and this can also be your house of bad habits. You know what I’m going to say next, right? Right. You need to kick those bad habits to the curb. The sooner, the better. If you can get that in before New Year’s, even better.

Nothing bad is happening to you after New Year’s, but the sooner the better on this one. With Saturn in your house of bad habits that means Saturn is putting the squeeze on something fierce. Bad things could happen if you are reckless about this issue. Indulge in the things you like to indulge in, there’s nothing wrong with that, but the universe is about balance.

Have your usual fire sign fun, but be responsible. Remember the word “moderation.” Saturn will send you tests to make sure that you are. Pass them, and good health and abundance are the promises of Saturn. Get into routine with this and you’ve won half the battle. No, really!

Virgo – The Cold War all over again

Your fun bone is going to be restricted during Saturn in Capricorn, Virgo. As the mutable sign of the earth signs and the king and queen of flexibility, you won’t have a problem with that. Your best Saturday nights are at home with your video games, computers, or your favorite authors or sports games.

You haven’t been to an office Christmas party in years, because you just don’t like them. The people who love you already know this about you, but they may find your Saturn in Capricorn gets a little dull sometimes. This transit is working your fifth house of pleasures, so you just aren’t going to be feeling the fun too much.

The other side of this is that you are feeling the fun too much, way too much, and Saturn needs to send you some responsibility reminders. You don’t want to find yourself there. This is also a love house, and it’s very easy to get caught up in multiple partners situations, and casual carefree affairs.

If your current relationship status permits this, go for it, but you’ll need to be clear with ALL parties of your intentions are Saturn is going to chime in on this one. Nobody wants that. It’s going to feel like the Cold War all over again for some Virgos who just want to stay home, and it could in relationships if you aren’t careful. Just be careful, that’s all, Virgo.

Libra – House of cards

You have Saturn in Capricorn in your fourth house of roots and foundations, Libra, so origins and upbringings are going to play a critical role in the next three years. Your actual home, or real estate, or estate matters will also play a role. You may see that you have more responsibilities at home, begin working from home, or spend a lot of time redecorating your home.

There could be some real estate inheritances or negotiations in the next three years. Your cardinal air sign side will handle it all beautifully. You may also have parents who need to be taken care of, or with whom you spend more time due to prior karmic debts coming back. Some astrologers call this the house of firsts and lasts, because beginnings and endings happen here.

You’ll be going through a lot of cycles like this over the next three years, and Saturn will both bless you and warn you if needed.

Scorpio – The truth sets you free

Oh heavens, Scorpio. Saturn in Capricorn is in your communication house. Your blunt nature is about to get dialed up a notch. It will be a good thing, although the people around you may disagree. Communication is the key to your success in the next three years, Scorpio. If you are a writer, start that novel now.

Your water sign nature will send you every intuitive clue you need on where to go with this. Any Scorpio in the field of communication is going to be excited over the next three years. You will be obsessed with completing major communication goals, and you will get them done. If you aren’t in this field, this is a good time to start journaling, or just writing down things in general.

Your native language is going to be how you relate with fellow humans. You’re going to speak and say things without thinking more than usual. You’re going to be brutally honest too. Do this with love and this will actually have you rising above the pack. Your honesty and frank nature will be appreciated more than usual.

Your third house is also your sibling house, so your relationships with your siblings will be both tested, and strengthened.

Sagittarius – You can’t always get what you want

You have Saturn in Capricorn in your second house of money, so you know what that means, Sagittarius. You’re going to be pretty driven and obsessed with money thoughts over the next few years. You don’t have to be - handling this area of your life with maturity and responsibility will be enough to see your money piles grow, and they will grow if you play your cards right.

That will be difficult for you, as the mutable fire sign you like to dabble in everything. You can’t do that now. This house is also your house of talent and self worth, so the key to seeing that money pile grow will be in using your talents to make money. It’s all about tapping into that part of you that makes your soul sing.

When you do that, research the ways you can make money with that in mind and Saturn sends you the keys to your success. If you don’t handle money responsibly, Saturn is going to be all up on you about that too. Being ruled by Jupiter, you want it all and you want it now. Saturn says, you can’t always get what you want - but here’s what you need.

Capricorn – Discovering your soul’s purpose

This is your time to shine, Capricorn. As the cardinal sign of earth ruled by Saturn, you will spend the next three years discovering who you really are. That’s step one of this transit. Step two will be staying true to it. Don’t hide who you are from the world. You are pretty awesome!

You have to be real, and you have to own who you are, and the world is going to eat you up and then some, in wonderful ways. The minute you start stepping outside this circle, and begin showing the world something that is not authentic, Saturn starts putting the squeeze on.

You’ll spend the next three years discovering what your real standards are, and then living up to them, and ensuring others do too. You may be disappointed by some people, but you will move on. Just make sure you aren’t the one not reaching the standards bar. Be true to you and you won’t have to worry about this.

Be as real as the earth signs can be, which is as real as it gets - and you win. Who are you? Why are you here? Saturn is going to help you discover this in the years to come.

Aquarius – Relax, Reflect, Repeat

You are likely going to feel like the most serious zodiac sign during Saturn in Capricorn, Aquarius. This transit is touching your twelfth house which is a very somber sort of house, often symbolized by hospitals and prisons. You may even spend some time here during the next three years, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to jail.

You may work there, begin volunteering at an institution like this, or even start watching a lot of movies or TV shows that have this theme. The twelfth house is also the reflection house. You aren’t going to be a party animal over the next few years, and if you are, Saturn will wind you back. You’re also on a mission to discover your soul’s purpose over the next three years.

Reflecting and researching is the best way to discover this. As the Einstein of the air signs and the zodiac, thinking is what you do best. Your quiet times could be your most productive times under this transit. You’ll have the twelfth house guardian angel with you through these years, so you’ll never be alone.

Pisces – Friendships will come and go

You have Saturn in Capricorn working your eleventh house of groups and friendships, Pisces. Your social circle is going to take huge precedence in the coming three years. Friends will come and go. You’ll have a nice little circle of people you count on for your biggest secrets, and as a water sign, you love them the deepest.

You’ll also likely have a huge group of friends, because as a mutable sign, you are just that social. If you have friends who aren’t good for you, Saturn is going to nip that in the bud. You’ll also find out over the next few years just who you can count on, and who you cannot. You’ll move on just fine without the ones that you can’t.

You’ll intuitively realize you are better off without them, and Saturn will reward you when you do. Be responsible in your friendships, and use groups and the world at large to pursue some big dreams. Saturn will then wind that clock of karma for you.
