As I write this morning Saturn is closer to our earth. This phenomena called stationary makes the planet of time, reality and suffering appear still in our skies. This stillness intensifies the planet to us and therefore affects our lives often showing in both internal and external ways. The promising (put on your silver lining hats please) part to this cease of motion causing this depression and reality checking is that it is creating an incubation or safe space to once again look at what isn't working in our lives. With all the lockdowns, rules, quarantines and repressions to the everyday life we mere mortals have faced this year it's surprising that there is anything left to look at - but hello there it is!
Now the promise I hinted at is that Saturn is in its own sign Capricorn stationed in Uttarashada. Uttarashada has the shakti to long lasting victory. Today is a day to slowly and methodically move that mountain as Saturn starts steadily moving forward at 2:45pm AEST after a long reversal in the heavens above. This movement (like a tortoise slow and measured at first) will start to lift those chins to a spot on the horizon, herald in purpose (remember that?!) and shine the way to more aspirational living.
The full moon in Uttara Bhadrapada has a strong connection with Saturn. After much buildup of tension (ie 2020) this moon can bring the release and cleansing we need to feel the rain pour from above onto our weary spirits. This rain provides relief and also rejuvenation after a lot of pressure from the year behind us. To think there is still 3 months ahead of us on what could be the longest year in recent memory just shows you the power of Saturn. Saturn rules time. Time has changed for us all as we have adapted to new structures, routines, habits. Whether we have embraced or denied has caused either a successful adaptation or more suffering.
Saturn has hovered around Pluto and Jupiter this year. Those with Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces (most influenced by these 3 planets) in their chart have been deeply moved this year and more so been called upon to show the way forward. These signs are also the more mature or evolved (in no way better or cooler than the other constellations) along the mala of the zodiac so it's not surprising that their skills and wisdom are all in need with where we on earth are building towards. Scorpio begins investigating the deeper truths and secrets, Sagittarius to learning and teaching a higher purpose, Capricorn to achieving and directing that purpose, Aquarius to sharing that with the community and Pisces to transcend the self. So you can see the enormity of this year by this planetary relationship between these three celestial planets.
But for tonight let's all take off the rocks on our shoulders, have a seat, take a breath and in the words of tsunami @ladygaga - Rain. On. Me.
