I don't subscribe to any particular school of astrology, but I do make a point of keeping up to date. I choose the ideas that work when I apply them to a real chart and real life and throw out the ones that turn out to be, well, wishful.

It’s been a long, strange trip around the Zodiac for Saturn over the last 27 years, but at last he’s come home. Yesterday, he arrived with the dust of the road clinging to his clothes, in Capricorn, the sign which, by tradition, he rules. Perhaps, he heaved a sigh of relief to be back in this cool, winter palace.
Astrologers have already been writing about this hugely important transit.
Steven Forrest has written an excellent, and cheering, essay, which is really essential reading. It helps that he is a Capricorn Sun-Jupiter himself so he understands the sign from the inside. Jo Tracey’s piece is more about how to interpret the transit for yourself. In her very long and wide-ranging piece on the gathering power in Capricorn, Jessica Adams focuses on the coming conjunction in 2020 — which is indeed highly significant. Astrobutterfly explains how this transit could be beneficial personally and makes the important point that for the next couple of years the outer planets will be in harmonious aspect — about time too! Although this is a comparatively short piece by Libra Seeking Balance she makes an important point about Capricorn — this is a feminine sign.
He left this place in 1991, and like Odysseus coming back to Ithaca, Saturn returns to find his house topsy-turvy in 2017. He has a few of years to sort things out — until 2020. But he is strong here, he knows how things work in this rocky region, and he is the king.
What is more he has help from Neptune also powerfully placed in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio, and, soon, Uranus in Taurus.
The up-ending of Capricornian order has come from Pluto — and the square from Uranus in Aries — both ripping apart the structure of global power. Unlike Odysseus though, Saturn may well help out Pluto in his plans, but he will do so according to some rules, and is also likely to impose some new ones.
