It's official, folks and quite fitting, I might add, that Saturn entered the sign of Sagittarius in time for Christmas. It entered Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck, growth, expansion and limitlessness at 11:33 a.m. on December 23rd. On that day I tweeted:
"Christmas comes early today as #Saturn enters Sagittarius. A day of rejoicing worldwide as #Scorpios feel lighter and freer."
Astrologer Jessica Adams brilliantly captured the feeling when she tweeted on Christmas Day:
"Astrology! Saturn leaves Scorpio and solutions and healing experiences emerge. One frozen department of your horoscope is thawing."
Saturn will remain in the sign of Sagittarius until December 19, 2017, with the exception of its brief retrograde foray back into Scorpio from June 14th through September 17, 2015. I'm not that worried, however, because Saturn will only be revisiting the last two degrees of Scorpio, as I truly believe that most Scorpios have learned some hard lessons in the past three years and won't be adversely affected by that transit.
Saturn in Sagittarius feels infinitely lighter than Saturn in Scorpio. It is the mutable fire sign following the deep fixed water of Scorpio. Sagittarius is the sign of luck and Saturn is the planet relating to work and is also known as the Great Teacher. On the surface, this combination may seem incongruous. How are these two strange bedfellows going to play together? I believe that the lessons to be learned from Saturn in Sagittarius will be associated with the nature of excess. Saturn in Sagittarius is also about living authentically. Sagittarius is renowned for its love of honesty. I predict that we can expect more of a focus on truth, our belief system and attitude, as well as knowledge, wisdom and education, all of which are Sagittarian issues. And Saturn in Sagittarius will bring changes in education, even more religious and political scandals (no escaping that one, folks, especially with the 2016 election) and the potential for more Internet threats.
So the bottom line is that we literally have Jupiter, the planet I like to refer to as Santa Claus and the ruler of Sagittarius, playing in the sandbox with Saturn, which I have frequently referred to as the astrological counterpart of Scrooge. Sorry, but I couldn't resist the analogy to the Christmas season. As a Scorpio, I am positively giddy with the shift in energy that I have detected since December 23rd. Maybe I am overindulging in excessive optimism, but I am going to ride this pony for as long as I can. The year 2014 was extremely difficult and challenging for many folks, so I say let's grab the brass ring that Saturn in Sagittarius promises for 2015 and beyond.
