    Saturn in Capricorn, one of the signs it rules, represents authority, integrity, and structure and can slow things down with its conservative, meticulous, and serious nature.

    Think big and don’t look back

    This Full Moon in Gemini is the first of five Full Moons in a row which will take place in the first degree of their respective signs.
