Saturn in Capricorn

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Jul 11, 2019 7:59 am

I think it's time to start looking ahead to Saturn's residency in her own constellation, Capricorn beginning next year. Saturn in Sagittarius has been so vivid, so fundamentally defining of much that has led culture and the news for the last two years... and we aren't too far from shifting into a new game. Saturn will be in Capricorn nonstop January 31, 2020
through May 19, 2022.

Before digging into the larger picture of events and conditions during these periods, I thought it might be interesting (and perhaps useful) to look at my chronological catalog of the major events we have studied (those in SMA) and see if any obvious patterns emerge. Here is what I found that seemed of interest:

A lot of these dates seem to line up roughly with the 30-year Uranus-Pluto cycles.

1873: Technology: railroads. Speculation, economic bubble, recession, protests.
1903: Technology: cars, planes.
1932: Radio, TV
1961: Dawn of computer age.
1993: Internet, cellphones, home computers

Starting to collate observations from the historic record:

1725-1728
Catherine I, as new Empress of Russia, dominates the time. Bach's St, John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, & other important works. British pacification of Scotland. Significant development & expansion of Freemasonry. Gulliver's Travels published, instantly sells out [NOTE: This might be a critical tale of the transit.]. Royal Bank of Scotland founded. Various religious diasporas and community establishments. Copenhagen Fire of 1728 destroyed much of the city with huge cultural impact.

Various things give me the intuition that a renewal and empowerment of paganism, especially as a rebellion religion, will mark the next cycle of Saturn in Capricorn. I also think "rebellion of the earth" with land-based planetary retaliations amidst climate change.

1755-1758
French & Indian War (& the more global Seven Years War): British and French naval forces escalate their face-off for control of North America, French mobilize in response. British concurrently conquering India. Samuel Johnson's English dictionary published. Lisbon earthquake the same week as the Mount Katla volcano erupts in Iceland. Many alliances secured within Europe as the worlds largest empires remain in active conflict (mostly securing territories).

1784-1787
A period of formation of the new United States under its Articles of Confederation, especially the practical business of putting players and pieces in place and in motion, especially organization of territories and the appointing and receiving of ambassadors (and then preparation for writing the Constitution). (Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War, came into effect May 12). U.S. Mint established to create common currency. It is the era of Mozart, including the opening of The Marriage of Figaro and Symphony No. 38. Botany Bay penal colony established by Britain in Australia.
NOTE: The U.S. Confederation Congress at that time resembled, in many ways, the EU today and may have some analogies.

1814-1817
The time of Napoleon and organized forces against him (War of the Sixth Coalition as part of the longer Napoleonic Wars) an eventually overthrow him. War of 1812 is still ongoing including the burning of Washington, DC in August 1814; the war ends in February 1815. Mount Tambora erupton with devastating ecological impact including suppressing temperatures worldwide the next year with widespread crop failures and famine. Second Bank of the United States is chartered.

1843-1846
Several small but interesting church items in 1843, including the revelation authorizing polygamy for Mormons, failure (twice!) of the world to end as prophesied by an American preacher, Joseph Smith is murdered with consequent flux in the LDS church, a split in the Church of Scotland, and the first prophesies of the Ba'hai religion are delivered by the Prophet Bab. Dickens' A Christmas Carol published, immediately sells out [a possible myth of the transit]. England closed its debtor prisons. YMCA is founded. U.S. annexes Texas. Potato blight in Ireland triggers the Great Famine (1845-49). Manifest Destiny becomes a rallying cry furthered by President Polk. Mormon diaspora from Illinois to Utah.

Jan 7 1873 to Apr 3 1875
Aug 12 1875 to Dec 30 1875

Feb 19 1902 to Aug 2 1902
Nov 17 1902 to Feb 12 1905

Jan 1 1932 to Mar 23 1934
Aug 31 1934 to Dec 18 1934

Feb 9 1961 to Aug 23 1961
Nov 1 1961 to Feb 3 1964

Apr 4 1990 to Jun 4 1990
Dec 22 1990 to Mar 13 1993
Sep 22 1993 to Dec 1 1993

During part of this transit of Saturn through Capricorn, it will be there will Pluto. Counting the upcoming periods, there have been 10 distinct periods (in three broader sets) in the last thousand years when Saturn and Pluto were in Capricorn together, and others approaching. These are: as follows:

Jan 12 1048 to Mar 27 1048
Jun 16 1048 to Jan 29 1049
Aug 27 1049 to Dec 8 1049

Mar 26 1283 to May 8 1283
Dec 8 1283 to Dec 31 1283
Jan 1 1284 to Feb 27 1286
Aug 28 1286 to Nov 20 1286

Mar 10 1784 to Jun 26 1784
Dec 6 1784 to Dec 31 1784
Jan 1 1785 to Feb 27 1787

Jan 26 2021 to Aug 9 2021
Nov 30 2021 to May 19 2022
Jun 20 2022 to Jan 24 2023

Since 1500, there have been six times that Saturn and Jupiter have been in Capricorn together, with three more such periods in the near future. These are:

Mar 1 1843 to Apr 19 1843 & Nov 28 1843 to Dec 9 1843
Feb 19 1902 to Aug 1 1902 & Nov 17 1902 to Jan 23 1903
Feb 13 1961 to Aug 23 1961 & Oct 31 1961 to Feb 28 1962

Apr 5 2020 to Jun 21 2020
Nov 24 2020 to Apr 10 2021
Sep 5 2021 to Nov 28 2021
