Transiting Saturn is currently in the sign of Capricorn and will remain within the first ten degrees of Capricorn until the end of 2018. Saturn, which is often linked to disciplined action and restrained conditions, moving through the sign of Capricorn (the sign of disciplined learning, caution and somewhat strategic teachings) will be testing our ability to focus through sometimes stifling conditions and teaching us to stay true to our beliefs. This is particularly true when Saturn, through transit, conjuncts our natal Mercury. Check your personal astrology chart to locate Mercury and calculate any aspect with Saturn, if any at this time.

Saturn is the teacher of the zodiac but is resistant to change. Saturn is always willing to take the long road to learn what is needed. If the short route (or cutting corners) is more appealing to you while Saturn is making contact, you will find that the shortcut does not exist. Saturn insists that you not miss any steps and you will have to make adjustments along the way if this is your normal way of working through things. You cannot ignore any detail under this influence. Every detail must be faced when it comes to the lessons that Saturn presents to us.

If, however, you work your way through these lessons and you are diligent in your efforts and face any adversity that might present itself head on, you will come out the other side of this experience much stronger and a more experienced individual with knowledge and understanding that will stand the test of time. On a mental level, it may seem quite tedious as you seem to be tested at every junction point but you will learn a great deal about your inner resolve during the time frame that Saturn makes this contact. Could one of these important lessons be “being present”?

The house in which Saturn is transiting will be the area of life that is being affected and the natal house placement of Saturn will also play a significant role in the events taking place during this aspect. Again, be sure to check your chart to see how Mercury is aspected by other transiting planets as well as its condition within the natal chart. This will give you a clearer picture.

Even if Mercury is challenged in the birth chart, remember that challenging aspects when applied to our life’s mission will be rectified over time and can eventually work like a trine or sextile once mastered. As a result, the challenging aspects will eventually work with us.

Mercury is the planet of the mind and the greatest tests to your mental energies will be during its time spent with Saturn.
