"Saturn turns direct, July 20th. This is when you’ll be expected to get up and move out."
"This is one of those months where things will just keep on happening ? and happening?. Just when you assume nothing ELSE could possibly happen, something else inevitably will. Is it possible to squeeze so much news and change into one tiny month? Yes, for sure, and April is due to be a turning point month for many, of all signs. We have a very tough new moon on March 30, influencing the first half of April, and then two eclipses, a lunar full moon eclipse in Libra on April 15, also quite full of power and might, and a solar eclipse in Taurus on April 28/29 that will affect you the most, but that is a little bit milder than the April 15 eclipse.
While these eclipses won't be exactly easy, they are necessary, for the main job of an eclipse is to test the strength of situations and relationships and to bring any weak links to your attention. The universe wants you to have a strong, vital, happy, and highly productive life, so anything that the eclipse finds that impedes that mission will be shown to you or else swept away."
So I'll end up unemployed at this rate? Thanks, universe! Oh, wait, no.
"Eclipses are non-negotiable, so if the eclipse fosters an end to a relationship or a condition, the only way for you to approach that news is to move forward. The eclipse will lock the door on the past, and there will be no way back. If you don't like the changes you see shaping up now, you will be able to make new changes later, on the road ahead. For now, you must accept what you see happening. The eclipses will correct any situation you didn't know about, ignored, or that you did not have the courage to take hold of with both hands, quite straightforwardly.
This particular set of eclipses will break patterns of the past and set you in a new direction. These will be powerful, especially for the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). You are not a cardinal sign but a fixed sign, dear Scorpio, but we all have cardinal signs located somewhere in our charts. The last eclipse of the month, April 28/29, will be in Taurus, the sign found on the same axis as yours, so that one will be the important one to watch.
Lunar full moon eclipses (like the one coming April 15) end a chapter. Solar new moon eclipses (like the one coming April 28/29) open a new path. For that reason, solar eclipses are generally easier to go through, as they tend to present somewhat calmer environment. Full moon lunar eclipses sometimes make us sentimental as they bring up memories and old dreams, and they remind us of the passage of time.
Let's start at the top of the month, and see how the month builds as it moves forward. The first two weeks of April will be highly influenced by the new moon that occurred just two days prior to the start of the month, March 30. It appeared in Aries, 10 degrees, in your house of work assignments, so you may see many changes to assignments, and changes being asked of you may seem a bit random or subjective. No matter, clients won't be able to make up their minds or can think logically, but are feeling pressure from people above to make subjective redo's that seem to have no rhyme or reason. Mars is currently retrograde until May 19, so attempting to get a grip on this will be fruitful - simply smile and go with the flow."
Yup, sounds like my job again. Then again, that's pretty much what it's like all the time no matter what month.
"You may find that a client may announce that he is leaving your company now, or it may be a long-term project that you worked on and enjoyed is now coming to a finish. You may have known this would happen, but even so, you may miss the people with whom you worked and the kind of work you did on it. If you are now suddenly out of work, do not fret, for a new one will come in to fill the vacuum if you begin looking quickly. You of all the signs have the most spectacular outlook for career success of any sign come mid-July."
This makes me laugh and laugh, given how the last time I was supposed to have good luck at job hunting, I did not. I mean, it sounds nice and I could use it, but I've learned not to have hopes.
"Also at work, due to the hard new moon, your co-workers may now change, and a trusted assistant might announce her departure. (She will be doing this at precisely the wrong time, with so much going on at the office, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and helpless for a day or two, until you set about adjusting to this new situation.)"
That already happened, though it's not so much quitting so much as it's a semi-transfer. But yeah, ugh.
"This is simply the way the universe teaches us all to be flexible. I know, you don't need this commotion now, but alas, we are all in the same boat in April. Nothing will happen as you expect it will, as the new moon of March 30 arrived arm-in-arm with Uranus, planet of unanticipated events. That new moon will be a hot potato (there, I have said it), as it will also send a hard glance to Pluto too.
Pluto is your ruler, so you will have to have contingency plans for the office. For example, you may need to hire temporary help to fill in for the merry-go-round of personnel around you. I will advise you NOT to hire new recruits, not with such difficult aspects at play. You can hire temporary help before you set anything in stone."
Heh. Well, that's not under my control or happening until next month (and that will be new recruits!).
"The sixth house, where all your office pandemonium will be taking place, discussed above, also rules the state of your health. It is possible that you may notice that something is amiss, so take care of your health this month, for you need to be your own best friend. The new moon that appeared March 30 was in Aries, ruling the head, so you need to watch your teeth or to be on guard against a headache. If you know certain foods or beverages trigger headaches in you, be diligent about avoiding them now. Of course, keep an eye on your constitution in general, and be sure to get enough sleep in this potentially draining month.
The big event will be the full moon lunar eclipse, April 15, in Libra 25 degrees. You are not the subject of this eclipse, but nevertheless, it will light your house of your subconscious mind. If you have had a problem that has been troubling you, or if you would like to overcome an addicted to any sort of substance, the eclipse will give you the impetus to get help. This may happen because of something little, like a casual comment you hear about you, or another type of event that brings on an epiphany. You can now turn over a new leaf, even if you have tried and failed before, because this month you will have the key ingredient for success - keen motivation and a strong drive to master anything you put your mind to."
????? Okay, so I'm not really addicted to anything, but fixing a problem would be good.
"Mars will oppose Uranus in exact mathematical degree, in the same signs as it did at the end of December, Libra and Aries specifically. (That had to make the year-end holidays in 2013 very hard for certain Scorpios). Here we go again. If you had problems at the end of December, you may not feel them again, as the mathematical degrees have changed, but you must be vigilant anyway. Here is why."
Hm. Well, my year-end holidays were pretty awesome, but it turned out that the aforementioned failed job hunt's seeds of destruction were probably going on then when I wasn't around to hear about it. Good point.
"You are ruled by Mars, and when opposite Uranus, Mars can bring on a confrontation between you and a disrespectful subordinate who has overestimated his value to the firm. It would be hard not to criticize this person, but if you do, your confrontation may escalate to become even more inflamed. Be careful. April 22-23 will be very hot days. The problem is, because Uranus moves so slowly, you will feel this aspect at play nearly all month. Pick your moment to let this person go, but don't give him any reason to go to the human resources department to complain about you."
Hah. I think I'm the disrespectful subordinate in this situation. I need to keep my damn mouth shut, but everyone always complains anyway, right?
"Due to the cardinal cross, legal matters and contracts are being drawn into the mix this month too, and I would strongly suggest you not sign anything now. With too much going on around you, it may be hard to think clearly. Give any papers that will commit you to others the time you need to mull over them."
Well, hopefully that isn't gonna be an issue this month.
"Also, with the Sun conjunct Uranus, you may get some surprising news about your career mid-month, something you never in a million years expected would happen. It could be celebratory, or just the opposite. (These eclipses are tough to predict because Uranus will be prominent all month and will be leaving his fingerprints all over everything). You could score a completely unexpected career victory at this time, one that brings your name to the attention of a VIP at the very top, or you may be trying to fix a near disaster, most likely tied to the subordinate you are dealing with earlier in the month. Let's go with the interpretation of "do a great job, and you'll have a shot at major praise and a promotion by late July." (Or, you may get an invitation to join a competitive firm at that time.) I am not worried about YOUR career outlook, dear Scorpio!"
I am, but it's nice that you're confident.
"This same eclipse, April 15, will shine a light into things going on behind closed doors, in secret, so that you can find out about them and protect yourself. This will be true ONLY if something truly is going on - I am not saying that there is anything for you to find right now. If anyone has a political agenda that has the power to do you any damage, this eclipse will show you the identity of that person in the office now. (The ancient astrologers always referred to the twelfth house as the one that pointed to secret enemies, while the seventh house would always point to open enemies. Both these houses will be lit for you this month, so you do have to be careful.)"
"Scorpio is a shrewd sign, so you, more than most, will step back and observe, a talent that will help you this month. To be clear, I am not saying you have ANY enemies, the secret kind or otherwise, but I am simply saying that part of the possible manifestation of the eclipses point a POSSIBILITY in this direction. I hope this will NOT apply to you. I simply tell you so that you can keep your eyes open, but I do not want you to feel a need to be paranoid. Eclipses expose untoward actions and bring secrets that would hurt you up to the surface and out in the open. If the eclipse finds nothing to expose, you will go through this period easily, and news may be mild compared to what one or two of your Scorpio friends experience now."
That's definitely already going on. At this point I'm reasonably assuming that literally everyone around me is a secret enemy, actually.
"As you get to the end of the month, you will reach the key eclipse for you, a solar new moon eclipse in Taurus, 10 degrees on April 28/29 (depending on your time zone). This will instantly open an important new chapter in your closest romantic relationship. If you have been dating seriously, this eclipse may bring an important turning point - a suggestion to be exclusive to each other, a confession of love, or even a marriage proposal."
"If you are already married, you may now make plans together to work toward new goals. If you have no romantic partner, then this new moon eclipse may be directed toward your plans to form a new business partnership; or for you to find and collaborate with a new manager, agent, publicist, lawyer, or accountant; or if you are the agent, for example, a new important talent to represent."
That would be nice.
It's always interesting to read these late in the year and see if your year panned out as they said it would. (Disclaimer: up until the 15th to read.) I don't really relate to my sun sign chart here, but my rising sign one... hoo boy.
"Saturn conjunct the Sun or ascendant is about growth, movement and coming to terms with who you are.
The coming to terms attribute almost always includes a whole lot of growing up. When Saturn is present in your chart, that’s what’s going on. That is the thing to do, and it’s best if you do it well. The Saturn principle in astrology is: become your own inner authority and nobody will have to take that authority over you. Therefore, part of what you’re doing is claiming back authority that was either taken from you or that you delegated at some point; taking that authority also means claiming your responsibility to yourself.
If you go through the process, if you do the work and make the changes and commit yourself to a new depth of integrity, you come out with a promotion. Your life will be better, more grounded, more stable and you’ll be in closer contact with who you are. Saturn transits also indicate times of professional movement, which can range from rearrangement or restructuring to moving up in your profession to a complete change of profession.
Steven Forrest said one of the most insightful things, referring to the Saturn return at age 29, though I will extend it to all major Saturn transits: you know you’ve done the transit well because after it’s over, you like going to work. You have the right job for you, and you do it well. It provides you with the sense of a purpose fulfilled."
Well. So far the professional movement thing is going on....did change jobs a few months before 2013 and it has been rearrange-y and restructuring. I haven't moved up--it was a lateral move--but am considering trying to make a change if I'm allowed to. There are some things I am decidedly unthrilled with in my current position, possibly enough to poison the well, as it were.
But do I like going to work now? Is my purpose fulfilled? Well...no, and I still don't know how to do that in a job context. I fear Saturn will have long moved on...probably to Capricorn...before I get there. If I ever do.
"Saturn will bring a diversity of enforced changes your way, though if you observe carefully you will notice that they are changes you have been wanting to make for a long time — yet to do them you needed some direct encouragement, support and yes, enforcement. One word for this is discipline, which is a form of discipleship, which in this case means following your own will."
Enforced changes: yes, some of that's been happening. This has played out best in my buying a car in 2013, which I wanted to do but without having to deal with godawful car salesmen. I lucked out and didn't have to, and got a car I can afford and have already driven already plenty of times. So yay there. But yeah, encouragement and support were needed there. In other areas, i.e. career changes, that hasn't quite gone as easily. I am getting backed up in making adjustments to the current job, but to some degree I need to adjust my soul in order to fit it. I don't know how that's going.
"You may not have such extreme manifestations, though you certainly feel your pathos. Saturn in Scorpio is here to help stabilize that. It is a kind of clean sweep of the emotions, particularly the deeper passions, something that feels like dredging out a shipping channel so that the ships can move through safely. Right now the channels are so clogged they don’t serve their practical purpose."
Dredging out a shipping channel...clogged channels...yes, this sounds about right.
"On the point of change, I want to suggest you do something that may involve consulting with an astrologer or astrology student: check the exact dates that Saturn makes contact with your Sun or ascendant. This is easy to find out and it differs a little for everyone; you want to know these exact dates (there will probably be three of them). They represent peak moments in the Saturn transit experience, as well as a process of events unfolding. Use these dates well.
If you happen to have any of them this year, I suggest you wait until after the transit happens to make major new commitments."
I have an early ascendant, so...oops, too late! Well, I probably waited until after one of them to buy the car, anyway. I'm too lazy to check in retrospect.
"Our society is in a time crisis. This is on at least two levels, personal and cultural, though they amount to the same thing: the sensation of a perpetually increasing rush, as well as the sense that time is being vacuumed out of existence like air gushing out of a balloon. Many people have their day planners booked for three months or longer, including social events. Others waste vast amounts of time, doing nothing, unable to initiate activity or waiting for something to happen.
Saturn’s presence is a big invitation for you to be conscious of how you use time. This may come in several forms, including the sensation of how much time has passed; the question of whether you have enough time to do what you want to do; your value on your time, including the monetary value you place on your time.
This one is worth discussing a bit more carefully, because of Scorpio’s role as a forum for exchanging resources and Saturn’s role as a regulator of time. You need to think through your value carefully.
Remember as well that in life, you can sell your time, your labor or your ideas. There are some jobs where you punch in and punch out; you sell your time on a kind of meter. Other jobs, like writing, cannot be measured in time; it’s the work product that has a value. Consulting is a mix of time and ideas.
What I suggest you do is figure out how these equations apply to you."
I sell my time for a living... I am not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, once my time's up, I'm outta here and not worrying about it and can do what I want with my work and time. On the other hand, I like the idea of selling ideas, big time. Just not sure how.
I'm skipping all of the sexual tantra stuff because that has no relation to anything with me, but here's the bottom of it...
"You may find yourself with a craving to travel internationally. Just about anywhere will do, but I suggest you focus on the one place that you’ve always wanted to go the most. This starts to engage in early summer. I suggest you plan ahead. Make your short list now and be ready to jump at an opportunity. I mean it. Okay?"
Nope, that never happened. And probably never will because I am the only person on the planet who isn't dying to go to foreign countries--honestly, it's just too damn hard for me and not real and a lot of money that I'd rather spend on things I can buy in America and never fucking mind!
"Also apropos of surprises: while Saturn in your birth sign speaks of slow, steady progress, there is a peak of activity around the time of your birthday. It’s as if there’s a sudden precipitation of events around that time of year."
Hm, not exactly on my birthday, but a few weeks after.
"Two things happen: there is a rather stunning total eclipse of the Sun on Nov. 3, 2013. This is a truly unusual eclipse, which is conjunct Saturn. It happens during a Mercury retrograde. Here is my reading: things that you think might take a long time are actually going to take a lot less time than you think.
In order to take advantage of this, be ready. Put nothing off for the future. When you discover that it’s time to change something, don’t delay: get started. Follow through. Be disciplined and use your time well. I will say it again. Be disciplined and use your time well. It is precious. In truth, it’s all you have."
I...don't know what to say to that.
"SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): You'll be most enthused by your current situation if you can clearly see it as a golden opportunity to do more than you've ever before done in this context… to learn additional tricks-of-the-trade, angles of interpretive insight, and/or language to describe your evolving grasp of the subject-matter… to go places you haven't yet been, if for no other reason than your senses crave novel stimuli… and/or to generally grow in directions that, just a few short months ago, seemed rather inaccessible. If you haven't yet tapped into this enthusiasm, you essentially have two main soul-nourishing options in front of you: (1) Look at your situation again, from the broader perspective of your entire life's trajectory, and check in on whether you aren't indeed gaining something from the experience you otherwise wouldn't have had access to. Hopefully, if you've recently been caught in the drudgery of day-to-day concerns, this birds-eye view will help you reconnect to the largest 'why's of your involvement… and renew your interest, at least long enough for the next chapter or two to play out. (2) Start actively looking for your 'way out', which, in itself, might be the only focus that will stir your enthusiasm to a propulsive momentum. This current astrology is very clear in its purpose: to ensure you conceive of your life as full of exciting promise. Should you lack that conception, it's high time to start hunting for the next box of adventures."
Updated to add that Psychic Dream seems to be on the same wavelength:
"Don't torture yourself obsessing on things that are outside of your control. You can only do what you can do, Scorpio. This week you need to let things unveil themselves to you, even if they are moving at a maddeningly slow pace. In your efforts to have an awesome life you need to make some hard choices, pal."
"But seriously, i don’t buy that ‘we act like our ascendant early and then do the sun sign’ thing. I mean, there are SO many different aspects of a chart. If you have – for example – Uranus in Scorpio Rising with Mars in Leo square that and on the Midheaven, you know you’re doing that. You’re like a big jungle cat individualistic dakini rocking bit of business."
Well, I have that exact setup she just mentioned and I am all....what am I doing, exactly?!
TO ALL PEOPLE ON THE PLANET WEEK OF 29 APRIL AND BEYOND ECLIPSE PATTERN 2013 UH- OH THERE’S GOTTA BE MORE THAN THIS
Money and sex sex and money money and sex sex and money
There’s got to be more than that even if the eclipses are taking place in Taurus and Scorpio. Everybody gets the joke no matter what sign you were born under.
Money and Sex?—that’s too crass, too low consciousness, too crude, too vulgar.
What about the higher vibration, like creativity and manifestation and rebirth and transformation and all that good stuff people who wear Birkenstocks talk about?
Actually, it is all those things, all to be found in the same package at the moment, so we have to understand that until we have all experienced a common worldwide apotheosis and simultaneously become gods and goddesses, we are all evolving at different rates.
Some of us are already eating organic vegetables and seeking transcendental Tantric unions. Others, believe it or not, are still robbing the poor and exploiting the weak. And, get this! Some still talk about eating other human beings.
Sounds icky, but the Taurus Scorpio axis operates on many levels at once.
Rarely does all of humanity embrace the higher vibrations at the same moment. There are still greedy rascals out there and seductive skunks still skulking about. It’‘s hard sometimes to know whom to trust, since EVERYTHING seems to be a transaction lately.
With Saturn and the North Node of the Moon vying for supremacy, is sex always behind the sale of EVERYTHING?
Is human desire and appetite the driving force of our plane of existence?
Of course you don’t have to act out your baser desires, but magnetic attraction is at the heart of every connection between two consenting adults. At least right now.
We are currently experiencing each of us in our own way a personal kidnapping. We are being wrenched from a place we have found comfortable, but one that is no longer useful or satisfactory.
Think about that.
A force is moving us away from what we know as familiar toward the unfamiliar.
We are but prey in the paws of the predatory Inevitability of Change.
We EITHER EMBRACE IT OR ARE DRAGGED AWAY BY IT.
To embrace the unknown is to overcome the terror of death of course, but also of looking into our own unconscious drives and wishes.
It is the only way to release the fire of creativity that smolders within us all.
Creative inspiration is born in passion and curiosity, both of which can be liberated only when we respect without judgment or fear the deep needs and wishes and attractions and repulsions we often secretly harbor.
These are primitive, instinctual, ravenous hungers emerging from our most primal and anti-social selves.
To live in a civilized society we are asked to control some of our impulses and restrain ourselves from seeking mindless satisfaction to our hungers and thirsts.
This cu rrent eclipse pattern of 2013 demands that we release our hold on the more mundane aspects of our security, detach from the known in the search for a more meaningful and sincere form of happiness and fulfillment.
Way more to come.
"Saturn’s transit of Scorpio will focus Taurus’ attention on any or all of the following issues:
- Holding on versus letting go
- Surviving versus thriving
- Playing it safe versus diving in
Saturn’s opposition works by presenting a set of limits. The limits force you to adjust your focus, or get real about what you’re doing. Anyone with planets in Taurus should look at the house opposite those planets, and ask themselves the following questions:
- how are the current (or approaching ) limits going to help me take the energy of my Taurus planet(s) to a deeper level?
- what am I afraid of losing?
Saturn oppositions can feel harsh at first, especially if you keep banging your head against the wall with a routine that doesn’t work. You will have to adjust your trajectory, or re-dedicate yourself to something you’ve let slide. Whatever it is will take you a bit deeper (Scorpio) than you’re used to. The good news? You’re ready for it (Saturn says so). Keep this in mind: Taurus is the sign of survival, Scorpio the sign of death, but they hold the potential for birth (Taurus) and re-birth (Scorpio).
Those with planets between 0-9 degrees Taurus will feel the Saturn opposition this year. In 2013, those with planets between 4-20 degrees Taurus will experience the opposition."
That is how today has been going...I consciously wanted to spend a lot of time outside today while the weather was still nice and the sun was still out and warm about it, but now that I'm home, I've been winterizing the bed and moving all of the nice summer clothes into the other closet and going through my yarn stash for a "fiber rehoming" event tomorrow. I am still keeping a lot of the one-ball-of-leftover-yarn stuff because I have a project idea that can use those as stripes, but I think I"ll get rid of the various boring cream yarns someone else gave me, and the thread/lace yarns I never use because they are so tiny, and the free itchy yarn, stuff like that. It's a backpack and bag full of that already...and hah, I'll probably bring home the equivalent of that from other people's stashes.
I keep looking around the junk pit that is my place--I have piles of projects everywhere, not to mention clothes that won't fit into a drawer or closet or I just go through that stash so much there's no point in putting it away and out of sight-- and thinking that I need to start doing some purging. Or at least start doing that on a day where I'm rained indoors and don't want to be out doing other things. I have so much to have to deal with, one way or another. I feel like I need a day off just to tackle that shit on a day when I won't have anything more awesome to do--except well, I usually have something more awesome to do. Like oh, buy stuff for another project.
Saturn will move into Scorpio this month on October 5, and that's good news for you. For some reason, Saturn has received a bad name among people who have not studied astrology closely. If you were to do so, you would see that Saturn conjunct the Sun, as you will have in the coming three years, could help you materialize a dream dear to you in the way no other planet can do as effectively as he can do. When I look back on all my successes in life, Saturn was prominent in all of them. This planet's job is to show you that you can materialize any dream if you put your mind to it. Saturn can be a tough taskmaster, but he gets solid results. By the time this visit of Saturn is over in September 2015, you will have gained an attractive patina of maturity and seasoning those others will find mighty attractive, too.
So while it is true that Saturn will make you work hard, you can be sure that you will be proud of all that you accomplish during this phase. You only get two or three visits of Saturn to your sign in a lifetime, as it takes 29 years for Saturn to make a complete revolution around the Sun and all 12 houses of the horoscope. Saturn's job will be to ready you for bigger life achievements, ones that you always assumed to be far beyond your ability to handle. Ventures started and finished during this phase will last a very long time - possibly forever.
You have literally hundreds of possible choices of a challenge you'd like to tackle, but I will give you a few ideas of how Saturn might affect you now.
You may sign up for an advanced degree, start a business, or relocate across the country. You may get married or have a baby. Whatever you choose to do will be something you cannot undo or "bring back" later, which will be why you will be attracted to this goal in the first place. It will create the very cornerstone of your life, and by late 2015, you will reap benefits from all that you put into your goal now.
The good news is that Saturn in Scorpio encourages us to form intimate, sharing, and supportive relationships; to trust our own judgment; and to learn to let others give to us. The bad news is, Saturn’s particular form of “encouragement” tends to be a little rough. “Just how badly do you want to form intimate, sharing, and supportive relationships?,” he asks. “Let’s throw every possible impediment in your path and see if you still want them.” Or the ever popular, “How’s about you make a real whopper of a bad decision – trust somebody you really shouldn’t – and see if you’re still able to trust your own judgment?”
To use a peculiarly Scorpionic phrase: When outer planets transit Scorpio, shit gets real. There’s no use sugar-coating it. But each sign has its blessings as well as its curse, and Scorpio blesses us with the kind of strength that comes from knowing the truth – about ourselves, about others, and about the way the world works. From there, we’ll eventually move forward into Saturn in Sagittarius and construct a belief system that helps put it all in a larger perspective.
The Saturn in Scorpio road will typically be bumpiest - or should I say, “the opportunities for personal growth will be most abundant” (yeah, that sounds better) for those with lots of planets in fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Bonus points if one of those planets is the Sun, Moon, or Saturn. When the ride gets especially bumpy, take the advice of a recent client with tough Saturn aspects in her birth chart, who said, “When things have gotten so hard that I don’t think I can take another step, I just keep walking. Eventually I get through to the other side, and then I have a story to tell.”
When Saturn moves into your sign, the motto of the next couple of years becomes “try.” Saturn is not like Yoda who says ” do or do not….there is no try.” Saturn recognizes the real possibility of trying and failing, but he thinks you ought to try anyway. Saturn says ‘make the effort.’
In short, pick something to accomplish and try to accomplish it. It doesn’t have to be something earthshaking. You could try to learn how to ski after all these years. The important thing is to keep trying, to not give up until you are thoroughly satisfied that you have explored every possible means of making the effort to master something to your standards. Other examples include getting a more stimulating job (your chart wants more stimulating job tasks), or moving to a livelier neighborhood or bigger city (your chart wants a more challenging environment for you).
Other examples include trying your hand at performing (Neptune in your solar 5th house would like that) or pulling off some business deals (Sagittarius energy this month would like that). Even meeting more people would fit the bill, as long as the goal to be accomplished is a bit scary for you.
Finally, the month has a bit of a religious or prophetic tone to it. At its best, this could make you feel a bit divinely inspired as the month progresses.
Want to do that life-changing thing you’ve been putting off for so long? Are you ready for transformation– and deathly afraid of it? Want a deeper relationship to your self, your body, the people you love -to life itself? They say to truly live, we’ve got to be willing to die; to claim our power we must look at what we reject, fear, call “bad” or “wrong” in our self. To befriend our wholeness in totality, we need to bring the darkness in our Self, to light. Welcome Saturn’s entry into Scorpio (10/5/12 -9/17/15, with 12/23/14-6/16/15 in Sagittarius).
The Irresistible Pull Of TransformationChange and transformation – how to do it, what’s keeping us from achieving the transformation we soul desire, holds a special magnetism while Saturn transits Scorpio. Like reaching the promised final layer of an onion, many of us will want to address that thing holding us back from full-on transformation. Once we sing that battle cry for change, we will also likely instantly run into our own defenses and resistance to letting go into change. As one women said to me recently, “I want to change – but on my own terms!” Of course Life will not oblige that request. We cannot give Life a list of our conditions and terms for our change and transformation any more than we can ask for a money back guarantee on a potentially rewarding/risky investment. During Saturn’s transit through Scorpio we may feel afraid to change, of death, loss, yet the pull of transformation is irresistible and related to our maturity. We need to clearly see death, change, loss, psychological awareness as apart of a leading a whole life. No more deceiving our self, or others -God of Karma, Saturn, won’t let us get away with it. If Saturn in Libra left us with a legacy, it’s this: the full truth is far more satisfying than half-truths.
Good luck with that...
