Saturn in Capricorn
Saturn's transit through Capricorn for the next three years started out very auspiciously, with its entrance at the (Northern Hemisphere) Winter Solstice at 0 degrees.
Saturn is the planet of fate, karma, destiny and responsibility.
It rules the highest levels of achievement, and those in high places. Saturn 'coming home' to its ruling sign will see many fundamental shifts in the structure of society, and its beliefs.
Instead of patriarchy, though, we are shifting to a feminine-based, compassionate matriarchal model. Yes, there will still be rules, of course, but they're now getting based on supportive, non-competitive mindsets, attitudes of cooperation, not competition.
Nowhere is this more evident than the #Time'sUp initiative that has taken over Hollywood since the New York Times exposé on Harvey Weinstein that changed the culture of business not just in Hollywood but all over America.
The United States, whose astrology points to a Divine Feminine consciousness (our July 4th birthday puts us at 13 degrees of Cancer, the sign of the mother, women in general, and nurturing) is finally getting to witness this shift, one which we have waited ages for.
The Divine Feminine was programmed into the USA from the very beginning, and the architecture of key buildings in Washington, DC and elsewhere reflect it too. Few people know that at the top of the U.S. Capitol, overlooking the hundreds of Congress members in the halls below, stands an iron sculpture of a neoclassical goddess wearing a Native American headdress. In addition, the Capitol and the Washington Monument are aligned with the constellation Sirius which in turn is aligned with the USA birth chart for July 4th.
Now that Saturn is back in its home sign of Capricorn, we take note that Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign which means it's ultimately feminine leadership that truly holds sway. Destiny realized!
In true Saturn fashion, Time's Up and it's About Time!
