Famously, when faced with a difficult decision, the American President Harry Truman stated that, “The President–whoever he is–has to decide. He can’t pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That’s his job.”

Saturn has just entered the last degree of Capricorn—a Critical Degree—for which the Sabian Symbol is, “A secret meeting of [people] responsible for executive decisions in world affairs.”  And these are Capricornian words: “responsible”; “executive”; “world affairs”—they have weight and consequences.  As Saturn is the timer in human lives, these matters MATTER. 

We NEED them to matter—to each of us, in our own lives—because that is where OUR responsibility lies.  We have a duty—another Capricornian word—to take charge of ourselves, to step up and be accountable for our actions and how they affect others.

The buck stops here—for all of us.
