Scorpio The Phoenix: (Oct. 23-Nov 20)
The new Saturn cycle asks that you be directed inward and you may choose to withdraw from the world (if not physically, then mentally). Career events may move you into a side track from the mainstream for the present. Now is a time for spiritual refurbishing and R&R before the next 28 year cycle begins.
For All Signs: Saturn will be changing signs to Libra on Oct. 29. It is beginning a new cycle of three years. Everyone feels the presence of Saturn, although it affects varying parts of our lives, depending upon its position in relation to the sun sign. Saturn represents manifest reality and the "rules" by which we all must live to maintain our social and personal systems. At its best, Saturn is our teacher and requires that we take a look at the facts. It insists on self discipline and organization, definition, and improving the structures of our lives in whatever sector of life it transits. We may feel its impact through the demands of others or it may come through the call of inner conscience.
Aries: The new Saturn cycle rivets attention on the quality of your important relationships. It is time to begin realistically considering your responsibilities in this area and clarify your commitment. Reward for a job well done occurs soon, but the parallel increase in political status will take awhile longer.
Taurus: This will be a period of apprenticeship. Now is the time to perfect it, to practice until the accumulated bits of wisdom become second nature and highly efficient. The subsequent cycle will yield the improvement in status resulting from work you accomplish now.
Gemini: This is the time to prepare for serious application of your creative energy and take steps to make manifest your dreams of fulfillment. Don't anticipate grandiose results on this cycle, but there should be encouraging responses from the world if you are on the right track.
Cancer: In terms of worldly power you are at the lowest point in the Saturn cycle. It is time now to lay the foundations for the next 28 years and it begins with inner work. Define what you must have to feel solidly secure and initiate the steps that will produce it.
Leo: This is the beginning of a period for you to define and clarify your level of knowledge. You may be called upon to take on a project requiring close concentration and sharpened communication skills. Learning to speak volumes in a few chosen words will become important as this cycle progresses.
Virgo: The new Saturn cycle asks you to more clearly define your values. Discrimination will be necessary to maximize efficiency. People commonly purchase a home or make important investments on this cycle.
Libra: It is time to redefine yourself and your personal capacities. The old way was good for a long time but it has lost its pizzazz and you must now look at yourself more deeply. Focus your attention on personal identity.
Sagittarius: Saturn's transit through Libra calls you to seriously consider your niche in life and clarify the role you wish to play in society. You have much knowledge coupled with many social and communications skills and talents.
Capricorn: For those who are happy with life goals, the next three years bring greater responsibility in broader social structures. Long-term goals and desire for achievement in your outer life may press you to temporarily sacrifice personal life and leisure.
Aquarius: The new Saturn cycle calls upon you to take your beliefs seriously and commit yourself to establish practical ways in which to manifest them. Talk won't cut it now. The world requires that you expand your usual territory to include a larger social structure.
Pisces: The next three years require you to focus on the consequences, responsibilities and liabilities of sharing resources with others. This will be a good period to tackle internal roadblocks that interfere with your ability to achieve genuine intimacy.
