World Events: Saturn in Capricorn
The world being what it has been, a lot of negative things have happened during the periods when Saturn has been in Capricorn. The early 1960s saw troop buildups in Vietnam and JFK urging Americans to build fall-out shelters amid widespread nuclear testing by the USA and the USSR. The late ’80s and early 90’s brought us the “War on Drugs.” But these periods brought many positive developments, especially in regards to correcting unjust laws targeting women and minorities.
