Saturn, Cassini and Grand Finale Astrology

In September 2017 everyone is saying goodbye to the Cassini and Saturn experiment. In your horoscope, Saturn is also on the way out of Sagittarius. On a global level many of the predictions you read about below (first published here on 8th September 2015) have come to pass. Saturn, Cassini and Grand Finale astrology is about taking a deep breath as we watch Saturn slowly pass out of this sign. We’re still in the waiting room but this is Saturn’s last hurrah in Sagittarius as Cassini also exits.

Sagittarius rules foreign people and places, travel, immigration, religion, publishing, the worldwide web itself – and globalisation. Saturn rules fear, obstacles, delays, thwarted process and often – sad, serious, stuck situations.

Do You Have Sagittarius Factors?

If you have Sagittarius factors in your chart then Saturn, Cassini and the Grand Finale of this cycle suggests you have spent 2016-2017 dealing with anything from issues about your citizenship, to questions about foreign people and foreign belief systems. Perhaps terrorism has touched your life through six degrees or (I hope not) directly. If you study or work in a university, then funding cuts may have affected you. This has been a hard, hard cycle – but we really are proceeding towards a Saturn Grand Finale!

Saturn entered Sagittarius, the sign which rules travel, airlines, space travel, religion, the internet and universities on September 18th, 2015. The cycle runs until December 21st 2017 and so now, in September 2017, we are are seeing Saturn, Cassini and Grand Finale Astrology come to pass – three more months to go!

True Predictions from 2015

Here are five astrological predictions which you first read here back on 8th September 2015.

Astrology is about knowing what not to do. Saturn is about accepting unavoidable realities and inevitable consequences – and then working with them. You never blindly stumble into any big, new decisions about travel, religion, the internet, airlines, space travel, religion when this cycle occurs.

As a general rule, who/what appears right on the start of any new Saturn cycle is usually a good indicator of what to examine more carefully. Research more thoroughly. Concorde was being funded, to fly again (for special events) just as Saturn went into Sagittarius. Anyone investing in Concorde in September 2015 should look into that decision very deeply in 2016 and 2017.


On 9th November 2014 you read dated forecasts about the new flight and airline challenges in 2015. This cycle continues in 2016 and 2017.

Back on 9th November 2014, you read on this website – “Saturn in Sagittarius will ground aeroplanes and spacecraft in 2015, on or within 48 hours of these dates, when we see important astrological aspects in that sign. Mars in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius, Friday 15th May, 2015.”

Russia and Saturn in Sagittarius.

Here is another striking Saturn in Sagittarius event which took place on May 17th 2015, just two days wide of the original prediction you read here, back on 9th November 2014, six months earlier.

On May 17th 2015, CNN reported that hacker Chris Roberts had told the FBI he had successfully hacked into aircraft computer systems.

More dates in the Saturn in Sagittarius cycle, predicted back in November 2014, have already tallied with major airline and flight headlines. What happened when the Sun in Gemini stood opposite Saturn in Sagittarius Saturday 23rd May? On 23rd May, a Singapore Airlines Airbus lost power between Singapore and Shanghai. Two days later on Monday 25th May four international flights in New York and New Jersey were the subject of anonymous telephone threats. US military jets escorted an Air France flight into New York City (The Guardian).

Then there was the Full Planting Moon on Tuesday 2nd June, when the Moon in Sagittarius stood opposite the Sun in Gemini. Unusually, a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Sydney. Across America, all United flights were grounded on Tuesday 2nd June too, as reported in Time magazine. 

Another date mentioned in the November 2014 prediction? Monday 4th May. On Tuesday 5th May, the world heard that the Germanwings pilot suspected of deliberately crashing a plane into the French Alps had practised a descent on a previous flight on the same day (ABC News).





Mercury Retrograde is in Sagittarius again, November 15th 2017 through December 20th, 2017 – the end of the Saturn cycle.

September 18th 2015 to December 20th 2017 sees the most serious crisis in 29 years for airlines and the travel industry, as hacking, airline closure, industrial action, fuel price rises and technical failure link to Saturn’s cycle.


This is an old prediction about a Brexit which came true, from 2015 – The Schengen Agreement which means 26 European countries have no passport or border control will transform or be scrapped. Why? It came in on 14th June 1985 with horoscope factors in Sagittarius and Gemini which will be hit by Saturn. But wait. There’s more. Britain will leave the European Union by December 20th 2017.  Greece will also leave the European Union by 2017.

Who is affected most by the end of ‘free and Easyjet’ travel within Europe? People born in the ‘Sagittarius’ generations. The days of hopping on a bus, cheap plane or Eurostar without border controls are over.

Sagittarius rules religion. We are going to see a revival of the old Holy War between Christianity and Islam on a serious new scale. In fact, when Pluto was in Sagittarius centuries ago, Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist and crucified. It was on this same cycle that we hit the 9/11 terrorist attacks. (Data by Raymond White, Madalyn Hillis-Dineen and Patricia White at Alabe). Saturn is now moving over the same position as Pluto in Sagittarius. The other Holy War which is back, in a major way, is science versus religion. The Neptune-Saturn squares trigger it.

The Science Versus Religion war will resume November 27th through December 4th 2015 and June-July 2016. 

Pope Francis has Sagittarius patterns in his horoscope which will be triggered by Saturn in Sagittarius. As the cycle began he started his tour of Cuba and America. The Vatican will be powerfully affected by this new cycle.

In 2016 we are going to see Neptune in Pisces clash with Saturn in Sagittarius. Unfortunately cults are going to make headlines again. Is it a smart idea to be more sceptical, less blindly accepting, of cults now? Yes. Saturn in Sagittarius says ‘Even if  it doesn’t call itself a cult – if it takes money from people – it may well be.’ We are going to see serious, even sad consequences of the cult culture in 2016 unless we stop problems before they happen.



When Saturn was in Sagittarius in 1956, 1957, 1958 the world was shocked by The Cambridge Spies. Universities will once again play home to the new breed of terrorist, traitor and spy.

Between September 18th 2015 and December 20th 2017, colleges/universities will be revealed as terrorist havens.


Wikipedia launched on 15th January 2001 in the Pluto in Sagittarius cycle and so did Amazon’s physical book sales (1995) and its Kindle launch (2007). They are both marketed at the ‘Sagittarius’ generations. Both will be hit hard.

Between September 18th 2015 and December 20th 2017, Wikipedia and Amazon  will need to transform to survive.

Cassini, Saturn, Grand Finale Astrology and Your Sagittarius Side

If you have factors in the last five degrees of Sagittarius – your personal birth chart shows 25, 26, 27, 28 or 29 Sagittarius placements – then September-December 2017 is also your personal ‘grand finale’ with issues about all the things this zodiac sign rules. Travel and travellers. Foreign places and foreign people. Religion and all belief systems. Education and academia. Publishing and the worldwide web. Give yourself time and space to deal with the last few months of the cycle as the planet of fear, rigid response, brick walls and hard times, slowly moves out of this sign.

I hope you’ve found it interesting to see predictions from 2015 about 2016 and 2017 and seen for yourself how this cycle has worked. Saturn transits always teach us something and the harder it is to learn, the more valuable it becomes later on. In fact, what you were forced to learn the hard way on this cycle will stand you in good stead for future plans and projects for some years to come.

Just one last word – this isn’t over yet! Cassini, Saturn and the Grand Finale are powerful reminders that Saturn is caught in change, but as this slow-moving planet finally moves out of Sagittarius he has a few grinding statements for us, before we can finally shut the door in December 2017. By Christmas, Saturn will be in Capricorn and that’s a whole different story again. You can talk to me on Twitter about the changeover right now @jessicacadams

Very interesting that you mention that schools will be revealed as terror cells. I live in the U.S.and I was just looking through my school’s program offerings and found that it has a Forensic Science High Technology Crime program that has a special separate program for Chinese students. I thought, WTF?!?! So, the U.S. Has been dealing with multiple security breaches all over the place at the hands of China and now we’re formally teaching them insider info?? I thought that was the craziest s#!t I’ve ever seen.

Interesting read ! I’ve been living in Budapest (trying for my EU Hungarian passport ,which was refused this week btw based on a 1947 law which justified the confiscations ) pfew another subject .. Was wondering if it’s going to start getting really weird here with the millions of refugees/migrants wanting to pass through here onto Germany and etc …. It started with groups gathering at the train stations and looking very dirty and ragged so we gathered food and passed it around then you can see how it escalated ….this is going to get worse …right shall I stay… Read more »
Hi Jessica, Thank you very much for the brilliant insights! I strongly believe the predictions above will start to be manifested, actually some of them already did, say, the refugees problems are getting much worse and miserable now. I have a personal concern and would like to ask for your opinion, i am doing oversea college (mostly in US) consulting business in Beijing, China, since transit saturn is in my 2nd house, the business is really slow now and i can hardly save money, should i keep running it, or should i change a direction? Will I make more money… Read more »

Hi Jessica
Just became a member and loving the extra knowledge and info.
I was wondering if you could take a sneak peak at my chart
My business seems to be slowing day by day and I seem to be at our crossroads. Not knowing whether to walk away and start a fresh or sit tight. Our huge mortgage worries me
Many Regards .

Hi Jessica,
I love reading your articles and mapping the topics to my life/what’s happening in the world. My husband and I are pinning to move back home to Australia and start a family after a couple of years in the US. Our only real anchor here is jobs. Could you have a look at my chart (I’m a member) and tell what’s in store for the next 6-9 months, is starting a family and moving home favorable? Thanks so much!

My birthdate 8 Dec 1969.

I have been bored and stagnant in life although quite OK financially, mainly through property investments.
Quit my job recently and started studying overseas for a change.
Dont ever feel like working in a corporate world or 9 to 5 job. Maybe go into business or rental property investment. Really like property though

Is it right move? and how will my financial status by in the next 2 years or so?

Wow, I remeber reading this article the exact day you had published it, sitting at a french airport and waiting to board a plane to Canada. I travel a lot and do business that has do to with import and export, so I was thinking about all the reprecussions this Saturn in Sagittarius could have, I had a strange shiver down my spine, and tried not to think too much about it. At that time, there was the Charlie Hebdo attack, but now there is the horrible attacks of 13th november in Paris, and the closing of boarders in France.… Read more »
I first read this article on the day it was published, sitting at a French airport waiting to board a plane to Canada…I remember sinking in my seat reading about how saturn in Sagittarius could change our lives, because I had just created a new import/export business, and had to travel a lot. Also in light of the Charlie Hebdo attack, the massive migrant influx plus the rise of extremism and racism, I was thinking about the repercussion that this could have in our lives as a nation. I remember hoping that this would’nt be true (not that I doubt… Read more »

Hi Jessica. I’m approaching a crux in terms of art/work/career/new home (I am combining artistic and academic paths), and I feel like it’s being orchestrated to some degree by the baton of Saturn in Sagittarius. Something to do with love too (though I am content to be single) – basically all the enduring pillars will go through some shift. I’d love to hear any insight into this! Especially with the Nodes shifting smack into my Virgo IC/ Pisces MC axis. My birth data: 01/22/82 2PM Manila, Philippines. Thank you so much for your generosity and brilliant writing.

Dear Jessica,

Any thoughts or suggestions for me about finances and relationships in 2016? My birthday is December 17, 1961 8:00 am South East Coast?

Also a friend would like to know the best place to travel on his birthday, (December 3, 1974 born in Tokyo, Japan 5:15 pm) to reap great financial vibrations for the 2016 year.

Thank you very much.

Dear Jessica,

Saturn moved to Sagittarius on 18 Sept 2015 and I got a job again after 4 yrs and started working on 1st Oct 2015( back to Europe)
I have pending litigation against my previous employer for salaries in Netherlands from Dec 2011 till date (4 yrs).
Do you see me getting my 4 yrs salaries any time soon? The parent company is in UK hence its taking long time.
My DOB 31-08-1979 (Virgo sun-sign)

Hi Jessica! First, an observation – does the Conservative party in Britain have Saturn in Sagittarius? It seems to be having a few problems at the moment and although this would tend to fill me with glee, I’m instead filled with dread.
I really do fear that Britain will sleepwalk out of the EU, dragging a very recalcitrant Scotland with it. 2016 seems like it’s going to be a year of massive upheaval politically and socially, I might have to hide in a room with my typewriter and just chronicle it!

Hi Jessica

All of a sudden I have lawsuits against me, even a revival of a very old one. Can you advise why this is happening. DOB 24.11.1976 south Africa

i was born with x6 planets in sag (26.11.1995-16:5 pm Skopje, Macedonia). whether this year will be crucial for me?

Hi jessica

Having a lot of strife in my love relationship.Dob 11 th dec 1966 Trivandrum,India.Any relief soon in this sector ?Any chance of a happy relationship in the near future?

Let my nephew, birthdate is 6/12/1992 moved into my home on April of 2015 and he is still living with me…He has created strange environment in the house… I am in the process of moving him out of the house as soon as possible to restore the peacefulness. I have given him until August 2016 to find place to live with my financial assistance…I am certain the position of Saturn in Sagittarius is affecting him in a negative way..My birthdate is 9/02/1961. What is the best month for him to move?

Hi Jessica, It is a very informative article. Thanks for the guidance. I have got admission in a journalism program at a university in Denmark. I will be leaving for it in august end. I simply wanted to know whether this would be a good move for me or should I look for any other program. I am still very confused about my ultimate career goal. I am also interested in fashion designing and opening up my own business. Kindly guide me asap. Also I want to start a YouTube channel soon. Should I do that? My DOB : December… Read more »

My Neptune is at 28° Sagittarius in my chart, I wonder how this has been affecting me. Feels like I’ve been walking in mud trying to move forward making changes for my career and other things in life it just so slow! Am I getting benefit from Saturn move to Capricorn? Thanks

Hi Jessica, I have been fascinated by your predictions but one sticks in the mind: Brexit by December 2017. Yet today, May, who has proved to be an unpopular and weak leader (thus not helped by Jupiter in Libra at all) declared the UK will not be leaving the single matket or free movement until 2021. She is a shill of the elite, totally the wrong person to orchestrate Brexit. Reading your many exvellent blogs, Uranus has not done its job of giving us freedom and independence at all. Is there something I am missing? I think we all have… Read more »

Hi Jessica, I have a number of Sagittarius chart factors. What is the story for me in this September- December cycle? Should I wait for relocation/job change until Saturn enters into Capricorn?


Hi Jessica !

I still hope that Brexit will take place as soon as possible and that my dear France will follow as well ! Thank you for you predictions !

My question is : Do you think that Catalonia will eventually get independant from Spain ? Could this lead to a rise of regionalism in Europe and especially in France ?

Saturn in Your Chart – Five Rules to Try

Where Saturn has the same degree or even one degree away, it may have a bigger impact on you than other people.
