Fear of scarcity, having nothing, or losing everything can be powerful motivators under this influence. There can be a firming up in government, with our attitude towards the aging, status or classes, order, organization, and finances. There are no shortcuts with this position! Patience and effort are valued, but also efficiency. Capricorn is an uphill battle that actually, eventually succeeds. Perseverance is rewarded. The results are long-lasting. With Saturn in Capricorn, we have a sense that we should work hard for what we want if we want it to last, grow, and strengthen.
Capricorn themes include aging, experience, ambition, skeleton, bones, skin, buildings, government, engineering, traditions, structures, rules, defense, fatherhood, boundaries, preparation, planning. Reforms and efforts to strengthen, build, or rebuild structures in these areas are likely. We turn a critical eye towards these things with Saturn in Capricorn. Capricorn favors quality over quantity, simplicity over chaos.
Ambition is more straightforward during this period.
