At best, Saturn is about integrity, good organization, playing it straight. At worst it is rigid, miserly, critical and too driven. On October 29, Saturn moved into Libra, and will remain there until April 2010. In the financial sphere, this suggests that everything must be done to the letter, and that contractual obligations are fulfilled down to the fine print. Co-operation and social awareness is possible as well, but only if everyone pitches in and does their bit.
Saturn’s lessons are about being rewarded for effort. Laziness, carelessness and irresponsibility have no place at this time. This is sharpen-up time, and being ethical in your dealings. This may cause a few waves in the land of high finance and banking. How is Saturn's shift affecting you?
Libra is at the forefront of Saturn’s influence during this cycle. Old ideas need to be trashed if they don’t work anymore. This is a time to cut your losses and concentrate on what will bring you security.
Virgo is also sitting up straighter where personal finances are concerned. This is your time to get organized, be ruthless with your indulgences and focus on what will pay off in the long term.
Pisces’ joint finances are less bountiful now. Partners at home or at work are less willing (or less able) to foot the bill. This throws you back on your own resources, but don’t worry: you’ll emerge stronger.
Aries is harder working, more responsible and needs to share responsibility in agreements over cash and other matters. You must push yourself now to get into gear over finances.
Cancer is realizing how to make home more secure, perhaps re-mortgaging or doing renovations. Work to give yourself more solid foundations.
Leo is relieved to not be so focussed on money, but you still need to concentrate on the details of cash matters.
Scorpio is taking a deep breath, getting rid of anything that isn’t necessary in their lives. This is cutback time in the hopes of faster growth later.
Sagittarius has their eye pinned firmly on the long term. You’re making sensible decisions about cash rather than living for the day and letting tomorrow look after itself.
Aquarius is happy that joint and work finances are not as tight as they have been. You’re slowing moving toward your ultimate goal.
Taurus will be working hard, not always feeling appreciated. Reassure yourself that your rewards will come in the long term. Finances should be more stable, though caution needs to come before indulgence.
Gemini may be less bouncy and social since duty will definitely come first. All wild thoughts of speculation need to be held firmly under control since this will be no time to take risks.
