Saturn in Financial Astrology
The Planet's Effects in the Economy
(June 30, 2002) As with all astrology, that of business and finance depends on the whole horoscope - the planets, their zodiac signs, their aspects. The ingredients continuously form patterns and relations, in the many different cyclic movements of celestial mechanics. A trustworthy astrological analysis must take them all into account.
There are good sides to it, as well. Few things in the world are one sided. Saturn is the voice of reason, and the link to the past, the guardian against the folly easily caused by haste and carelessness. Its force assures balance and stability - but the price can often be high.
In financial astrology, its orb through the zodiac, as well as the aspects it forms with other planets, should be watched carefully. They reveal where problems and setbacks are to be expected, where complication will increase and reform will backfire. And it calculates the true results of businesses gone haywire - as in the case of the IT market of the last few years.
Saturn takes almost 30 years to travel through the twelve signs of the zodiac. That is an average of about 2.5 years in each sign. When Saturn is in a sign, the kinds of business related to that sign will be affected - they will experience difficulties, grim revision and complications. During that time, they will simply be bad business - but after the Saturn passage, they will in most cases revive on a more sound level than before.
Below is a table of what line of business each zodiac sign is related to.
Astrologically speaking, Saturn enters traditional values and responsibilities, which tend to reverse development and renewal. Values of old stand in the way of future prospects. Difficulties, which may first have been ignored or neglected, rise and need consideration. Things become more complicated than before seen. Drab reality sets in.
The reason for the planet's multiple entries and exits in some signs, is its retrograde movement. Astrology is geocentric - seen from earth - and because of earth's own orbit, other planets have periods where they seem to go backward in the sky. From a geocentric perspective, they move retrograde, and occasionally, that takes them from a sign to the previous one, later to turn again and move forward in the zodiac.
This text will not be altered (except for design change and addition of Saturn transit dates in the last table, done in February 2006).
