Honor Among Selves

Honor: regard in high esteem, with great respect

Honor comes under the auspices of the astrological sign Capricorn and its governor, the planet Saturn.

Saturn recently crossed the border from Sagittarius into Capricorn, elegantly joining the Sun at 0° on the winter solstice. The two and a half year transit has ceremoniously begun.

Capricorn and Saturn arouse visions of largely populated organizations. What starts as the lone self marking the beginning of the wheel in Aries becomes a conglomerate of selves at the top in Capricorn, where individuals assume their positions in society.
Yet each self stays a self.

So follows the concept of integrity, thought to mean honor. It really means that an entity is a thing unto its own. From integer. A whole unit. 

To identify the entity, boundaries are established. Capricorn draws borders.  It compartmentalizes. The planet Saturn even emphasizes its defining edge with an unusual broad crystalline display.
The restraint or limitation normally attributed to Capricorn is connected to this outline which gives a body its contained shape and form. It finds its place and performs its function. It is evaluated.

I think Saturn is basically responsible for self appraisal.

When identity is honored, the many selves are free to conglomerate with dignity.
