…even though Saturn rules Capricorn.
These words from the late great Isabel Hickey, “Saturn’s goal is perfection. Through the chastening process of testing, sorrow, delay, disappointment, limitation, and privation, man learns the purpose of life is not pleasure but to gain experience, patience, humility, wisdom, and compassion.”
So we are moving from the hearty generous Sagittarius thirst for adventure and knowledge and freedom to… THAT.
Truth is: baby, I like it. And it’s not that the party is over forever. But we’re moving to a different room, down the hall, with a different number on the door, and different food and different smells and different people, and there’s goats! There’s goats around! The symbol for Capricorn is the goat who climbs high, higher, highest, keeps climbing. Ambition. Sturdy. Steady. 10th House. Career. The Father. Prestige. Endurance.
Think of the movement here, from Sagittarius to Capricorn to Aquarius. Isolate just this portion of the Wheel of Life for a moment.
Sagittarius has embarked on a journey, is seeking a new land. He gets to the land (which really is an analogy for his inner demons/spiritual seeking), wants to conquer it, but sees there is work to be done. It will take time. Aquarius Season rolls around and he has gained some distance, some detatchment. His mind is sharp from solving problems, from Saturnian testing.
When we reach Pisces we are whole again.
See? We are more than halfway done. Do the work of Capricorn and you will acquire knowledge (Aquarius) and compassion (Pisces) and when the cycle starts again, with Aries, you’ll be more than another “year” older, you’ll be… Well? What do you want?
