Saturn to Earthlings: Get Your Ass in Gear
Ever since it took its final leave from Scorpio back in September 2015, Saturn, AKA the cosmic cop of the zodiac is now visiting the more agile signs of the zodiac. It took a test drive into the sign of Sagittarius in December of 2014 just to get its feet wet. Apparently he had some unfinished business and headed backwards into Scorpio again just before the 2015 summer solstice. After having his fill of sun and fun he passed the baton to Sagittarius. So if you were you born under the sign of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, my sincere condolences to all of you mutable sign earthlings. You've all got to be on your best behavior. Karma demands it. We all have to grow into our best selves. What better way than to listen to the expert Saturn. Rewards will follow.
If born under the sign of the twins you are probably noticing that you're being called on for every decision, misspoken word, written or otherwise. Remember that document you innocently signed without looking at the fine print? Whether signed with a simple Bic or Mont Blanc don't be surprised when that signature comes back to bite you. Oh, and need I remind you about disagreeable siblings?
Everybody knows Virgo's have an eye for detail, a tendency towards hypochondria, and the urge to clean anywhere people can't see. Be careful you don't hurt yourself chasing pesky impossible-to-see dust mites. Virgo is the landlord of the sixth house of work, health, pets and daily routines. It shouldn't be hard for organized and thorough Virgo to second guess that demanding boss, or keep your favorite pet healthy and pest free. Remember the adage "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Don't skip your regular doctor visits. These areas are highlighted for you until December 2017.
Sagittarius will find the transit of Saturn the most frustrating transit, given the sign's penchant for freedom at all costs. Freedom without adhering to rules can lead one right out the door and out of a job. This sign has to remember that not everyone wants to hear the truth. It's a good idea to keep your nose to the grindstone and keep your opinions to yourself. Until 2017 that is. Then you can let her rip!
The sign of Pisces will also find work to be unrewarding or demanding. It may be difficult to be appreciated during this period while Saturn is making a hard aspect to your sacrificing sun sign. Helping out is is one thing, being taken advantage of is another. Things will look brighter after Christmas 2017 when all your hard work will be seen as accomplishments for the greater good.
