Once our Saturn return is complete, we are finally free to live our best lives as we define them. Punctual Saturn thrives on rules and regulations, so the rigid planet imposes structure on whichever constellation it tours.

If your Saturn return is kicking off, you can be sure to expect massive changes to occur in your career and public image.
On a macro level, Saturn in Capricorn will directly impact institutional systems. There will be abundant shifts pertaining to authority, government, and large-scale corporations. And with Pluto — the planet of rebirth — also cruising through Capricorn, transformations will be inescapable.
