If you want to know why Capricorns have such a hard time in life, read on…the more you learn about Saturn, the more you’ll understand your plight.
For the Druids, the Oak tree symbolises the turning of the year – the trials and tribulations all of nature goes through to become all that it is meant to be. The Oak is sacred to the Druids because of its strength and endurance. Like the hare and the tortoise, Capricorn doesn’t win because of his speed.
Like the Oak, Saturn is a survivor. But survival doesn’t come easy and it’s usually not much fun.
Astrological Saturn grounds you and establishes boundaries that contain you (for good or ill). Saturn shows where you are weak and vulnerable so that that you can strengthen yourself. Saturn points out where you should be fearful – if you are to survive. Saturn tells you to pay attention and go more slowly, look deeper and learn from your mistakes. With Saturn it is de rigour that you take responsibility. With Saturn, the buck stops with you.
As my favourite astrologer Karen Thorne once told me, (eventually) Capricorns always win. With Saturn’s stoic determination behind them, it’s not hard to understand why.
