Transiting Saturn has a tendency to make things a little difficult while it transits different houses in our charts (each house represents specific areas of life). Saturn makes things difficult when it aspects other planets and luminaries and also when it aspects the angles and even the house cusps in our charts. Saturn has difficult, yet valuable lessons to teach.

Transiting Saturn is now in Capricorn (as of January 2018) and is opposing the Moon. As a result, the energies of the Moon are affected if you have your natal moon in the sign of Cancer.

Transiting Saturn is at home in the sign of Capricorn, as Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn. It works well in areas of business, careful and serious studies, as well as with certain goals in life. These goals should be far reaching and long range goals, not goals that you wish to accomplish quickly.

When in opposition, this often signifies that other people will be involved somehow, (often the energies come from someone else or the action is initiated by someone else). The energies are challenging and the emotions will run high.

Moon in Cancer, as mentioned, is very sensitive but especially sensitive towards the family, the children and anyone needing to be nurtured. If, for example, this opposition involves one of your children then you would be having difficulty protecting them or they might be challenging your authority.

You may find that although you feel very emotional, part of you will want to control your emotions during this period. This is not an easy task for someone with their Moon in Cancer as often you may find that you back off, when in fact you should be pushing forward. In most cases, you should be standing your ground and do what must be done, as being strict and steadfast in your approach might be just what Saturn is requiring of or teaching you. Remember Saturn is the teacher and the disciplinarian.

It undoubted will not be an easy lesson to learn; however, if you need to take a stand, in the long haul, it will work in your favour. Perhaps, in the immediate moment it will not feel as though it is working too well.

Saturn does offer rewards for conscientiousness and careful planning. Take time to plan out the steps you need to take. It is highly suggested that you evaluate your circumstances and plan and prepare.

If you find that you are fighting back from an emotional standpoint, you may find yourself on the losing end of these lessons (for the time being). Give it your best shot to react with the passion that resides in your emotional nature. Respond in kindness and with loving affection, if the potential exists, that is.
