This week is all about Saturn, as the planet of discipline, restrictions, and order stations direct after spending the last four and a half months retrograde. As Saturn begins his motion forward in the heavens we are able to gain traction where we have recently felt helpless. This is also a time when bad situations can begin to move on, so if you’ve had a difficult summer you can expect to start finding relief.
Just before Saturn begins moving forward it needs to stop in order to change directions. In astrology, this stop is called a station, and the place where a planet stops has the potential to be rather significant. At 13 degrees Capricorn, Saturn stops right on the fixed star Ascella. Traditionally, this star is said to bring good fortune and happiness. While these are not often qualities associated with such a sever planet, it promises positive changes in the difficult situations many have been dealing with. Capricorns born January 1st, 2nd, or 3rd will receive the bulk of this star’s blessings. Expect a week filled with excitement and surprises.
The second major aspect this week occurs on Saturday when Jupiter squares Neptune. This is the third in a series of three squares between these planets in 2019. The first was on January 13th, and the second was June 16th. Both planets are in mutable signs, intensifying the delusional energy of these two planets in play. Jupiter and Neptune both have a difficult time with limits, and express overly idealistic tendencies.
As the final square perfects, we are presented with one final opportunity to address personal delusions we may have unproductively clung to. This could be a turning point for many who have tackled drug or alcohol addiction in 2019, giving them another boost of energy to conquer this personal demon. Paired with the productive energy of Saturn as it stations direct, there isn’t anything that cannot be overcome right now.
Globally, this week promises to unmask deception and to separate fact from fantasy. We saw similar events happen around the world during the first two squares, and we shouldn’t expect anything less. From now till mid-October large lies will be revealed, and individuals in positions of power will fall as their illusions and large-scale deceptions are uncovered.
This week’s homework assignment pulls on the power stationing direct. Along with the power to move on and gain traction in bad situations, we can commit goals. Now is the time to initiate projects and work towards long-term goals. If you’ve been thinking of starting your own business, saving for the purchase of a home, or going back to school now is the time to do it. Remember that nothing is ever quick or easy with Saturn, but his strength will help see your goals to completion.

A disagreement with a sibling, cousin, aunt, or uncle is possible on Thursday, and you may find yourself in a power struggle with this individual. Don’t let your emotion over take your capacity for logic. Over the weekend keep your ears open, and your mouth shut.

Confronting fears and insecurities is never easy, but as Saturn stations direct you will be able to more successful confront the darker side of your personality. Be cautious driving midweek as you will be prone to being pulled over, or receiving parking tickets or fines. Hypervigilance will keep your reputation and wallet safe.

Friendships are highlighted for you this week Pisces. Saturn stations direct in your 11th house, and brings the potential to refine and solidify your social circle.

Over the weekend, a disagreement with a friend is caused by the stress they are carrying from keeping a secret. If you press gently, you’ll be able to help them unburden their self before agitation causes strain on your relationship.
