Saturn

Definition of Saturn

Saturn stays in each zodiac sign for two and a half years taking about 30 years to get through all 12 signs of the zodiac. It rules both Aquarius and Capricorn. When Saturn is in a sign, it makes us crave the energy or characteristics of that sign. They call it the taskmaster because it pushes us to do things. Discipline and responsibility are known to be linked to this planet as it was said to the be the god of time, pushing us to be aware of its passage. It has to do with masculine traits of authority, the teacher aspects and lessons learned over time. It rules the 10th and 11th houses.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
