Transiting Saturn and Your House in Capricorn


Transiting Saturn is Still the Ruler of Capricorn

Transiting Saturn, like natal Saturn, is the ruler of Capricorn. Each of us has a house in our chart that contains Capricorn and that house is ruled by Saturn. Saturn has its “Saturn” functions: to make you aware of reality, to create structure in your life, to help you become mature, to make you take on responsibility and to set boundaries in your life. However, Saturn also has its function as the ruler of the house in your natal chart that contains Capricorn. As Saturn transits through the houses, it still functions as the ruler of your Capricorn house. Saturn brings the concerns of the Capricorn house to whichever other house it is transiting. If Capricorn is in your 2nd house, then your 2nd house concerns and issues travel side by side with transiting Saturn. If Capricorn is in your 9th house, your 9th house concerns and issues travel side by side with Saturn. Saturn transits do more than restructure your houses; they restructure your houses with a specific goal in mind.

Saturn and Capricorn are Goal-Oriented

Saturn transits bring a house into focus for about 2.5 years. Saturn’s purpose during this transit is not only to restructure that one house, but also to serve the agenda of the natal house it rules. Saturn and Capricorn are goal oriented- they want to achieve something; they want concrete, recognizable results. A Saturn transit through your 2nd house might coincide with getting your finances in order but that’s not the point; the point to getting your finances in order is to build a bridge toward realizing your natal house in Capricorn.

Building Blocks for Self-Actuality

While a Saturn transit brings one house into focus for a few years, Saturn is always focused on the house it rules in your natal chart. That is the one house that Saturn is always trying to structure. As Saturn goes around the wheel of your chart it slowly builds a foundation that allows you to realize your Capricorn house. Your Capricorn house represents one of the areas in life that you may feel you are in some way lacking. The house ruled by Capricorn might be depressed or repressed. Saturn helps you find a way to bring that house’s potential out in a very real, grounded, practical, measurable way. The boundary making and boundary destroying, the reality checks and hard work that go along with Saturn’s transits all serve the natal house that contains Capricorn.

    I’m a Libra Sun with a Gemini Ascendent. Looking at my natal chart, Saturn just moved into my 8th house, but talking about Libras in general, Saturn moved into my 4th House. Should I only be paying attention to Saturn in the 8th House or is Saturn affecting both my 4th and 8th?

      I find that the rising sign resonates more.

    • Hi Blades,

      Can I see your chart?

    I’m supposed to have capricorn in my 2nd house, but it’s interceped; so I have sagittarius there. I don’t have any capricorn houses? I have natal venus in capricorn though.

      Interception depends on which house system you are using. My guess is you’re using Placidus. Have you tried looking at your chart using Equal House or Whole Signs?

        Your post ”Capricorn in the Houses”, I find that I do relate to it now; saturn has been transiting my 1st house and I feel like I became more responsible with my finances.
