The energy shifts with Saturn's direct turn

On August 2, 2015, Saturn turns direct in Scorpio after having been retrograde for several months. He'll move through the last bit of Scorpio quickly and re-enter Sagittarius on September 17, 2015. Then, Saturn won't be back in Scorpio again for about 29 years...

If you have any personal planets or angle in your horoscope in a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) then Saturn in Scorpio has certainly pulled rank on you at some point since late 2012! If used correctly, Saturn in Scorpio can be the ultimate "You do what you have to do" placement. You may have to cut your losses in a certain area of life but you'll do it knowing that it's the only way to survive and thrive.

For some, this is a phase where you might need to overcome any fear of your own power. Learn how to use it constructively to transform a situation or let go of it completely if it's no longer viable.  If you don't, you'll be controlled by fear. Then, your very worst Saturn in Scorpio nightmare manifests: you'll be swallowed up by the darkness.

Even if you have no planets in fixed signs, Saturn in Scorpio has a grip somewhere in your world. Whatever house Saturn is transiting through in your chart, if you're paralyzed in fear then you are very likely in the midst of deep agony. Saturn in Scorpio wants you to pragmatically rise above the fear. Chew up and spit out whatever pain there is.  After all, there are still beans to harvest. Even when you're afraid or exhausted, there's work to do.

The point is, if you're still living in "La La Land" in a certain area of your life then when Saturn turns direct you're about to receive a major cosmic kick in the pants. It will force you to get real. Maturity occurs when you're successfully living life within certain margins -- like it or not. Saturn's job is to draw the margins. Your job is to figure out how to make them work for, and not against you.

In other words, it's time to "wise up!"
