Transiting Saturn is always the Ruler of your house in Capricorn
ransiting Saturn, like natal Saturn, is the ruler of Capricorn. Each of us has a house in our chart that contains the zodiac sign Capricorn, and that house is ruled by the planet Saturn.
Saturn has its “Saturn” functions: to make you aware of reality, create structure in your life, help you mature, make you responsible, and help you 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 natal Capricorn house to whichever house it is transiting.
If Capricorn is in your 2nd house, then your 2nd house concerns and issues travel side-by-side with Saturn as it transits through the other houses of your natal chart. If Capricorn is in your 9th house, your 9th house concerns and issues travel side-by-side with Saturn as it goes through each house of your natal chart by transit.
Saturn transits do more than restructure your houses; they restructure your houses with a specific goal in mind.
Saturn and Capricorn are Goal-Oriented
aturn’s transit through each sign of the zodiac brings one house of your birth chart into focus for about 2.5 years at a time. 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, measurable 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. If your natal 5th house is in Capricorn, then the point of getting your finances in order is so you have more money to invest in your creative hobbies, or so you can afford to give your children the kind of life you’d like them to have.
Building Blocks for Self-Actuality
hile 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 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 natal house in Capricorn. 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.
