Your Saturn points are deepest fears and your best keep secrets, stuff that runs deep to the core of our emotions. We don’t want to discuss these things; the anxieties that make us melt into a puddle of tears. Anyone who cares for us learns it is best not to hit that hot button, not to touch us “there.” Saturn in a sign, Saturn in a house, or Capricorn on the cusp of a house, all of these are Saturn points.
How do know your Saturn points? For this you’ll need a copy of your chart or you’ll have to consult your local astrologer. (Go to www.astrodienst.com to get a free copy of your chart.)
Saturn in Aries, Saturn in the first house or Capricorn Rising : You crave being “the Big Boss” and you secretly feel you aren’t cut out for the job. You feel guilty about your ego and are anxious about your body image. Remarks about your leadership skills or your appearance drive you through the roof.
Saturn in Taurus, Saturn in the second house, or Capricorn on the cusp of the second house: You are afraid of not having enough money, even when you have it. Worrying about your bank balance leaves you open to neglect more important things. Learn to recognize them. Hint: it isn’t money.
Saturn in Gemini, Saturn in the third house, or Capricorn on the cusp of the third house: Despite your intellectual brilliance, you are afraid you aren’t as smart as you think you are. You fear deep discussions because you think your perceived lack of knowledge will trip you up.
Saturn in Cancer. Saturn in the fourth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth house: You fear losing your home and you fear you don’t deserve one in the first place. Daddy may have undermined your feeling of security or your self worth. You do best when you strive to create your own feelings of security.
Saturn in Leo, Saturn in the fifth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the fifth house: Secretly you crave the adoration of others and you fear you don’t deserve it. Driven to be creative, you fear nothing you do is good enough. The stuff you create is awesome, but how would you know?
Saturn in Virgo, Saturn in the sixth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the sixth house: You are afraid you aren’t working hard enough or are organized enough. If you miss a detail you go nuts. You are especially touchy about your health, with at least one issue that freaks you out regularly. There is nothing wrong with preventative medicine. The number of vitamins you take is another matter.
Saturn in Libra, Saturn in the seventh house, Capricorn on the cusp of the seventh house: You secretly evaluate your associates as “better than” or “worse than” yourself. A relationship of equals terrifies you. Ironically, you fear “unfairness” as well. As a child you drove your parents nuts with your “little lawyer” routine. If your parents didn’t teach you well, you still do it as an adult. Marry. It’s good for you.
Saturn in Scorpio, Saturn in the eighth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the eighth house: You are terrified of your passions, and are terrified to live without them. Trusting others is a huge issue for you. As a child you learned that other people do not have the same level as commitment you have, because for you it is all or nothing. Ironically, you fear that other people will control you.
Saturn in Sagittarius, Saturn in the ninth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the ninth house: No other position craves freedom and is so bone chillingly terrified of it. You avoid marriage like it is poison ivy. If someone does net you, you’ll do stupid things to wreck the marriage, then wonder why your partner didn’t love you enough to put up with it. Be as smart as you really are and appreciate what you have.
Saturn in Capricorn, Saturn in the tenth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the tenth house: Its odd that you are so afraid of authority when you crave so much to have it. You’ll substitute career ambition for love relationships, then wonder why you are so alone. Your own success makes you nervous, and suspicious that the guy running behind you is trying to take what is yours. Learn to make allies instead of enemies. You’ll be more successful, faster, with them.
Saturn in Aquarius, Saturn in the eleventh house, Capricorn on the cusp of the eleventh house. You desperately fear you are not normal and are terrified of your own uniqueness. You yearn for group companionship and avoid it at the same time. W. C. Fields explained your ilk best when he said; “I don’t want to belong to any club that would have me for a member.” Join something.
Saturn in Pisces, Saturn in the twelfth house, Capricorn on the cusp of the twelfth house: You were told as a child “Don’t be afraid.” so naturally you are. The irrational sends you up the wall. You are not likely to pay attention to any of that New Age fluffola, like astrology. You fear other people’s illnesses, yet ironically many of you end up as health care professionals. Since you are not likely to seek out therapy, seek God for solace.
