Astrological view of Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn entered Sagittarius on Sept. 18, 2015 at 3:49 AM GMD. Earlier on, Saturn entered Sagittarius on December 23, 2014, then turned retrograde on March 15, 2015, went back into Scorpio on June 15, turned direct in Scorpio on August 2, and is now in Sagittarius where he will stay until he enters Capricorn on December 20, 2017. What Saturn means for the world now and up to the end of 2017 can be read from the heavens at the moment of his entry into Sagittarius on the 18th.

First, Saturn is peregrine in Sagittarius. This means he can wander off course, go to extremes, and have little, if any patience in Sagittarius. Saturn can even act tyrannically in Sagittarius.

Sagittarius, in a universal sense, embraces philosophy, religion, science, universities, all forms of higher learning, the higher mind, international travel, international trade, publishing, ceremonies, legalizing, large scale entertainments, and so on. With Saturn in Sagittarius the religious arguments will become much more serious, seriousness being the key word for Saturn. Serious issues involving legalizing in international trade and travel will come up; far reaching scientific discoveries will be made; legal problems involving organization of publishing companies and between the publishing industry and the monopolizing on-line corporations will also come up. This will be a challenging time for a number of universities for a number of different reasons. Lots of arguments over legalizing will come in the world because of political fighting. Be cautious if attending large scale entertainment events such as games because of the possibilities of terrorism.

Countries, regions, groups, and cities under Sagittarius include all of Araby, Spain, Hungary, Australia, southern France (Province), Budapest, Cologne, and so on. We can expect huge problems to continue to grow in and from the Arab countries and the entire middle east and north Africa. We see already the tension in Hungary. It will continue and deepen. It is becoming a serious issue for the EU. The United States is ruled by Gemini. The polarity of Gemini and Sagittarius brings this country directly face to face with these developments. Australia is also facing some severe political challenges.

If the aspects in the chart of Saturn's entry into Sagittarius were good and easy the above predictions wouldn't stand. But, unfortunately that isn't the case. The aspects are as follows.

Saturn is just separating from square to Mars, and applying to square to Neptune and square to Jupiter. Jupiter is in opposition to Neptune. Saturn is also semi-square to Mercury and semi-square to Pluto. Mercury is square to Pluto. In a nutshell, Saturn's career in Sagittarius is starting out badly and will act destructively. The turmoil in and coming from the middle east will be big news for the next two years, according to Saturn.

Looking at the picture more closely, Saturn's dispositor is Jupiter (Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter.) Jupiter is in Virgo, the sign of his detriment, and is in opposition with Neptune. Talk of communications with, and an invasion by ETs notwithstanding, confusions, insane opinions, lies, and deceptions will continue to come to us from the media. The Jupiter opposition Neptune corrupts Saturn's path through Sagittarius. We can expect more baffling and nefarious chicanery to infect international relations affecting trade and communications.

That Saturn entered Sagittarius when he was square Jupiter, and Jupiter was in opposition with Neptune also says that the markets are enjoying a rough ride. The north lunar node moving up towards Leo gives reason for some optimism, but the square of Saturn and Jupiter is forcing corrections. This is a tricky time for investors. Jupiter opposite Neptune is pointing to problems in the areas of oil, food, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Another way of looking at this, some people are going to get extremely rich while others lose their shirts.

Mercury was retrograde at Saturn's entry into Sagittarius. Mercury was also semi-square Saturn and square Pluto. Mercury was at 15 degrees Libra, a degree denoting the fulcrum of the scales, or judgment. Retrograde, square Pluto, and semi-square Saturn, judgment is corrupt and affected by underworld criminal elements. International agreements cannot be trusted. If anything, this should teach us that our leaders are unconscious.

The Moon at the time of Saturn's entry to Sagittarius was in Scorpio forming two aspects, sextile Sun, and square Mars. Moon was waxing. Mars is the ruler of Scorpio. The final aspect of Moon square Mars harms the Moon. It means that increasing conflict is to be expected in the world.

In the charts for the UK and EU, Saturn is in the 4th house square Mars and Jupiter in the 1st house, with Neptune in the 7th house. The mood of the people is angry. They are being fooled by international trickery. Saturn afflicted in the 4th house will bring obstacles and difficulties to the governments, and there will be severe weather that will adversely affect agriculture. There may also be earthquakes. Nonetheless, Mercury retrograde in the 3rd house says that the  governments will change their minds and plans to the benefit of the people, and Sun in the 2nd house promises a brighter future. In other words, it is highly possible that the current governments will start to come apart. Watch to see what happens in Germany.

In the chart for the US, Saturn is in the 6th house, the 6th house having to do with military services, labor, and public health. Mars and Jupiter are in the 4th house opposite Neptune in the 10th house. There is discontentment with the Government. In these two years a lot of dirt will come out and will involve scandals involving people in the top circle, as well as some involving people in the military. Mercury is retrograde in the 5th house trine the Ascendant. Mercury is intercepted, Changes involving diplomatic relations, while made in secrecy, will be to the benefit of the people. Venus is in the 3rd house. We are at peace with our neighbors.

In the chart for China, Saturn is in the 1st house, Jupiter is in the 10th house, and Neptune in the 4th. Mercury is in the 11th house square Pluto in the 2nd. This does not look sanguine for Chinese business. Saturn afflicted in the 1st house brings want of work, loss of trade, and poverty. Pluto afflicted in the 2nd house confirms it, and warns of trickery adversely affecting the money and stock market. Sun and Jupiter in the 10th house makes the leaders rich; they look good, but Jupiter's opposition to Neptune, Neptune in the 4th house will bring trouble up. Financial corruption is a serious danger and the majority of the people are being burdened.
