Planet Saturn impact in sign Sagittarius!

Saturn in Sagittarius: A positive house of Jupiter: This tends to lift up the native, or to give power, authority, mastery, rulership, independence, ambition, sometimes great selfishness, or loneliness and isolation. Its influence is of course modified according to the native's sphere of life. This is its general influence, and it may manifest to the extent of its opportunity in any walk of life, commercial, political, military, legal, financial, etc.

It is usually considered to give much misfortune in occupation and financial affairs, with ultimate reversal or collapse; but it seems open to doubt whether the planet's influence has been sufficiently separated from that of some unfortunate combination that may be present in the horoscope.

Taken alone, its influence seems to be of the nature given above, and this may be fortunate with a good combination and unfortunate with a bad one. Saturn in Capricorn receiving evil aspects, especially from the Moon, is very unfortunate where some influence received here will manifest through the father, the occupation, worldly position, power, fame, etc. 

In this position, Saturn seems to render the native very self-centered. In a weak or unfortunate personality, this will show as melancholy, despondency, gloom, seriousness and perhaps bring loneliness or isolation which may or may not be the native's own seeking. In a strong personality, it brings ambition, love of power and responsibility and unless Jupiter, Venus, or the Sun prevent, much selfish indifference to other people's interests. 

Planet Saturn in this sign has an interesting significance. If the first point of the sign Aries (commencement of spring) be taken as representing conception the first point of Capricorn (winter solstice) will stand for birth; Capricorn and Saturn, its ruler, will then be the symbols of Man and the human soul in general - the strong, clearly-marked, well-defined individuality, with power over himself and over the world. This is the astronomical reason why so many of the world heroes and saviors have been symbolised as being born at the time of the year signified by Capricorn.
