SATURN in AQUARIUS — PART 6 — 4/18/2021 ( LAST in this SERIES)

Good Afternoon, dear Friends and Readers, The post is the last in the Saturn in Aquarius series. I began with Aquarius rising and worked around the wheel…if you know your Ascendant (rising sign), then doing it this way gives more accuracy than a solar chart, which means you put the Sun on the Ascendant. That’s fine if you are born at dawn, your Sun WOULD be on the Ascendant…

We’re up to Aries now…If you have ARIES rising, the Saturn in Aquarius is transiting through your 11th house of friends and groups, or hopes and wishes for the future — the natural Aquarian house, so this transit is strong for Aries in a positive way. I have seen 3 different ways Saturn can behave in the 11th. Of course, being that there is a world crisis going on, the interpretations may be on line rather than in person. Depends on your situation…

Saturn in the 11th can mean you are working closely with groups of people in your career and may not have much leisure time for friends. It also can mean loneliness, not enough friends. Saturn here often means that you will volunteer, or be elected, or be appointed to serve a group of people. The 11th is labor unions, charitable groups, humanitarian groups, or less formal groups centered around hobbies, special interests, etc. If you are lonely, try a search on social media for whatever you are interested in, even if it’s oddball stuff — harp players, special breeds of pets, people working with leather, lace, herbs, restoring old bikes and/or motorcycles — you name it, it’s out there :)) I know people that have done this and ended up with happy friendships at a distance…

Aquarian transits are compatible with ARIES, there should be satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment. Neptune is in your 12th, suggesting you do some kind of spiritual practice every day. Doesn’t have to be a problem. Jupiter is either in your 11th or in your 12th by now — bringing spiritual understanding, growth and peace of mind. Not a problem. Uranus in Taurus in your 1st or 2nd can shake up old routines that have gotten stale. Aries is a sign more accustomed to challenge and change so Uranus should be reasonably OK. So, what IS the problem? I think it is Pluto which is forming a square to Aries, especially the last 10 degrees of Aries. Pluto in Capricorn is most likely in your 10th house of career. Government help may only delay the inevitable, you may need to train for work in another industry. There’s some kind of pressure here from Pluto, suggesting change and transformation in your career is going to be mandatory. For example, look what the pandemic did to the hospitality industry. It still hasn’t recovered…

You ARIES RISING people need to keep an eye on the other cardinal planets — be alert when the transits shift from Aries (now) to Cancer (summer), Libra (fall) and meet up with Pluto in Capricorn at the end of this year and early 2022. You may want to be more security conscious at those times. You may need to resist manipulative actions on the part of other people, or it could simply be government policies or laws that feel like a pain to deal with… It’s probably a good year to really study your chart. And think back over the lengthy Mars transit through Aries last year, culminating at 29 degrees Aries on January 6, 2021. ANY 29 degree is considered a critical degree…

All in all, I think Aries rising will have a pretty good year — just keep an eye on Pluto…

If you have PISCES RISING, them Saturn in AQUARIUS is most likely transiting through your 12th house of spiritual matters. If you have a later degree Pisces rising, then Saturn may still be in your 11th. Saturn takes 2 1/2 to 3 years to move through a whole sign or house. Saturn in the 12th, in ANY sign, can be a toughie. We often have to face our worst fears and work through them. If you can forgive the people who have wronged you, you may emerge from this transit immeasurably strengthened. You may need to do some short-term counselling. There’s EMDR for past trauma, and there are counselors that specialize — family dynamics, physical and emotional abuse, substance abuse, etc. Often, with Saturn in the 12th, it’s about loneliness and abandonment. And it can be hard to get any tea or sympathy from the people who you think SHOULD be there for you. That’s why I mentioned professionals.

When I had Saturn in my 12th, and I’m old enough that I’ve had it twice, it was certainly no picnic. I felt very alone. And I had to really look at myself and how the decisions I had made before had brought me to that point. Once Saturn moves into our 1st house, we can roll up our sleeves and get to work fixing what we discovered about ourselves when Saturn was in our 12th. The 12th is a hidden house — past lives, karma, secret sorrows, contracts we made while we were still in heaven — things we agreed to work on, and they often can involve hurtful experiences with other people. Both times, there were people in my life who were dishonest with me. It really hurt and I felt very betrayed. Soooo, what are you going to do? Feel like a victim? That just about guarantees it will happen again. I had to make myself get very tough and very strong and also be more skeptical of people to make sure I wasn’t attracting people with hidden agendas. I will never forget what I learned and it continues to help me… you can do that, too.

It’s so important to be honest with ourselves. And to be grateful for our blessings. And to plant seeds of kindness out in the world, WITHOUT drawing in the scammers.

This time in your life could be a wonderful new beginning spiritually. Meditation? Yoga? Journal-ling? Writing down your dreams? When people don’t like being alone, it’s called loneliness. When they do like it, it’s called solitude. Pisces make good card readers. Maybe this is the year you begin to really study a particular deck or system. If you want something more simple, try the I Ching or Runes.

Since Neptune is transiting through Pisces, you should allow a 2 to 3 degree orb on either side of your Ascendant for the Neptune conjunction. Neptune moves so slowly that this conjunction lasts 3 to 4 years. It’s a once in a lifetime transit. Neptune is the hardest planet to interpret. At least I think so…anyway, read everything you can to understand the spiritual unfoldment that is happening in your life. Eventually, both Jupiter (2022) and Saturn (in about 3 years) will conjoins your Ascendant, too. I’m watching the Pisces rising people in my life…more on this as it unfolds…

Meanwhile, take good care of your health, on all levels., Trust your instincts when consulting medical professionals. Consider getting second opinions, too. Don’t give up your authority over yourself…

Well, folks, that’s it for now…hope you enjoyed the series…best wishes, Jenae

Hello Dear Readers and Friends, I’ve been hesitating about writing this blog, but Saturn is now past my Sun and Mercury is direct, so it’s time to move forward with this series on Saturn. Yesterday I read a rather grim article about Saturn in Aquarius. The man knew his history and he also gave a lot of examples of epidemics and of people born with Saturn in Aquarius. I was so depressed after reading it that I hid under a blanket most of the day and took 2 naps — anything to change the energy. And naps usually work for me…and today is a better day…TG!

It is obvious to me that Saturn in Aquarius is showing huge amounts of divisiveness — groups of people reviling and/or criticising and/or attacking one another. This horrible virus with all the emerging mutations will not go away as long as people are fighting. The lesson is to learn to get along and allow other people to be who they are and to practice tolerance and look for what we all have in common. The more positive expression of Saturn in Aquarius is teamwork, brotherly love and cooperation for the common good. Lots of new groups are starting now that are doing exactly that. I want you to keep an eye on the people who were born with Saturn in Aquarius — watch what they do and what their values are for a clue to our future. The people born in 1962, 1963 and early 1964 and the people born in 1991, 1992, and 1993. And of course the babies born now from December 2020 through March of 2023. These are the lightworkers. I don’t know what their role is, but they have a special part to play in our evolution…

If you have AQUARIUS RISING, then Saturn is either in your 12th house or moving to your Ascendant and into your 1st house. It is VERY important that you know what degree of Aquarius is on your Ascendant so you can prepare for this transit. There are lots of programs on the internet that will give you your birth positions, but you need to know your time of birth as exact to the minute as possible. With Saturn in the 12th, we may have to face some of our worst fears. It takes courage to have hope these days. Saturn in the 12th can indicate focus and dedication to spiritual practices, or it can be a symbol of isolation and depression. It is even possible to grieve over losing a friend or a connection to a group that you valued.

Once Saturn is in our 1st house, it is time to roll up our shirt sleeves and get to work fixing what is not working in our lives. Your health could be under some pressure so take vitamins and try to get power naps when you feel extra tired. Saturn shows us our weak points, what needs to be strengthened. If you are shy and withdrawn, then you are going to have to find the courage to reach out to other people. The Internet is easy compared to physical life right now. Maybe you show the leadership indicated by the 1st house by starting your own group, or teach a class online. I knew someone with this position and he was not happy in his job. He did a bunch of research and decided what he wanted to pursue. It took him over a year to make the change but now he is quite satisfied. Remember, Saturn can be a symbol for career. Time to step up and be your true self !!

You will want to pay attention to your bones, joints, and teeth (Saturn) and particularly to the knees to the ankles (Aquarius). Since the first house is the head, good dental care is SO important. Bad teeth can cause headaches. Invest in the best toothbrush you can afford and also use mouthwash a lot — kills the virus, too…

Ben Franklin once said, “The best way to have a good friend is to be one!” and people with Saturn in their first would do well to get really clear on the principles of friendship — the boundaries, the ethics, what you are looking for, etc. — especially if you have been grieving a loss in this area. Some people are friends with their family but it doesn’t always work out that way. Aquarians often consider their friends their family. Saturn in your 1st could be a test of your capacity for friendship or it could be a whole new group of people comes into your life. Above all, Saturn helps us manifest big goals and projects. So make your list and WRITE IT DOWN — what do you want and/or need most in your life?

If you have Saturn in Aquarius in your 2nd house, you most likely have CAPRICORN RISING. I’ve seen lots of books say Saturn in the 2nd is money troubles, but I don’t agree. Remember, there’s a potential positive with Saturn. Before I get into that, there is an exception this year — transiting Saturn and transiting Uranus will square each other 3 times — we just had the first one — February 17, then June 14, and finally December 23, 2021. If Saturn is in your 2nd, then Uranus will be in your 5th — which is the house of kids and having fun, and the 2nd is personal money, resources, talents, and possessions. Squares can be a sign of challenge, frustration and the need to make adjustments. Squares can be a sign of hard work and big accomplishments. I just think for a week around each of these squares that you will need to be careful about loaning your personal stuff, or about doing so much for your kids and their friends and/or a group that you begin to feel like a sacrifical lamb…no brownie points in heaven for giving too much and feeling resentment about it!! If you are part of a dedicated team and EVERYONE is equally committed, then fine !! Go for it !! But in general, this will be a year where kids and/or people younger than yourself may want to borrow your stuff, or they want you to buy stuff, maybe frivolous stuff. Making the right decisions in these areas will help you define what values are important to you and pressure may bring this to your awareness and lead to some valuable learning for the kids. We are not defined by our possessions. That’s a hard one for kids that want the latest status symbol. If they are exhibiting a lack of confidence in themselves, or they want to impress their friends, then you’re going to need to help them work through this. I don’t think your kids or younger friends should be allowed to borrow your stuff this year. If they want or need something, ask them what they are willing to contribute toward the purchase. Time or money, like doing chores and racking up points toward the purchase. Sometimes Uranus in the 5th can indicate rebellious kids. If you are experiencing this, it’s probably time for tough love and family counselling.

Now that we’ve looked at the group interactions and we realize that this is probably NOT the best year to go into business with a friend or friends, let’s look at Saturn from a more personal view. This could be the year you really focus on building up your personal skills and talents. Maybe you spend some money on training or materials and have less time for social life because you have a big goal in mind. I started my business when Saturn was in my 2nd, and everything went well because I still kept my part-time job to ease the transition and I studied hard, every night, and assembled the resources I would need to take what had been a private hobby and turn it into a public business. These days I think it can be quicker and easier but there’s no getting around the dedication you need when Saturn is involved. Maybe your goal is simply getting out of debt and starting to save some money. Hard with a pandemic going on, but still possible. Saturn is about short-term sacrifice for long-term reward. There’s an old saying about Taurus — neither a borrower nor a lender be !! So be careful…

As far as health, the bones and joints in your neck may need some attention. Good to do some gentle neck exercises on a regular basis. I think it might be important to make sure your desk or your workbench is the right height and maybe you will need a chair that is both adjustable in height and also at the neck. The same knees to ankle caution still applies as well and so does good dental care.

There is no getting around the power of the pen :)) It is the first step to bring an idea into physical manifestation. So please write down your goals and wish list. Review it and change it if necessary, maybe once a month. Pat yourself on the back for slow and steady progress. The 2nd is the Taurus house and this is the Year of the OX — substantive progress that lasts a long time…

Well, that’s it for now…at least I got started…more houses soon…stay tuned and stay safe :)) Jenae

Good Morning, dear Friends and Readers, hope you all are staying safe out there! BTW, you need to be aware that Uranus in Taurus (and Mars this winter) will be squaring both transiting Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Beware of the hackers !! Taurus rules money and banks. Keep an eye on your accounts and don’t fall for scammer emails, texts, or phone calls. Check out other astrologers and see what they are saying…

OK, back to the more personal transits…if you have LEO rising then Jupiter will be moving through your 7th house this year. Pay attention to the degree on your 7th cusp. Be aware of the entry date and also keep an eye on Saturn’s entry, too. (More on that when I start the Saturn series…) The 7th is marriage and partnerships. People that have Aquarius energy in the 7th in the birth chart need to have a solid friendship with their partner. Since it’s an air sign, they need plenty of mental stimulation. Friends are very important. If you have this position and you want your partnership to work then you need to like your partner’s friends and vice versa. Aquarius also indicates a partnership that is very intuitive. Such fun to read each other’s mind and communicate telepathically :)) Yes, you guys, I know I already did Leo but I re-read it and decided to add some lighter stuff…

If you have CANCER rising then Jupiter will be transiting through your 8th house of shared money, shared power, love and intimacy. The 8th rules group money like insurance, mutual funds, insurance accounts, retirement accounts, wills and trusts, taxes, etc. Keeping in mind the Jupiter principle, expansion, most people with this transit will find it easier to get a loan, a credit card, or just have access to more funds. You want to be careful not to go too far out on that limb, since Saturn (contraction) is also saying be serious this year, not frivolous. Loans have to be paid back. Those of you who are planning a loan or a re-fi can probably count on low interest rates for a couple more years, according to what the Federal Reserve has said publicly. After that it’s anybody’s guess. The square from transiting Uranus can add an element of instability. If it was me, I wouldn’t go near any long term loans with adjustable rates, but if you want to buy bonds, consider the I Bonds which are adjusted for inflation periodically. Young people who had fun this year trading in and out of stocks could be in for a wake up call. Buying on margin is also a loan. The market can turn nasty in a second. There’s an old saying… “The market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.” SO… be careful and be prudent. The long term trends are pretty obvious with the new administration — electric vehicles, clean up the planet, recycle, alternative energy, work at home tech, and ongoing inventions will be huge — robotics, etc.

Looking at the 8th as love, sex, and deep emotions, the Aquarian energy is kind of a mandate that mental stimulation and shared ideals need to be the foundation for a deeper partnership. People tend to forget that any text or email or phone call is recorded for eternity, so be prudent about hot and heavy phone conversations, photos, etc. The truth about Aquarian energy is that it can be a catalyst to personal growth but there is an element of instability. Friends to lovers, then suddenly back to platonic friends. I’ve seen this happen many times with single people who have a lot of Aquarius planets in their birth chart. You may choose to side-step all the drama. You may already be in a committed partnership in which case there may be some experimentation with each other, but not with other people.

The study of martial arts falls into the 8th house. Other hobbies you might want to explore would be dousing for water with rods, or using metal detectors. 8th house, solving mysteries and finding buried treasure. This could be stuff like rock hunting, or even going on an archaeological dig. This house is very good for developing psychic abilities with pets. There are actually classes for this, possibly online.

If you have GEMINI rising, then Jupiter in Aquarius is moving through your 9th house of metaphysics and philosophy, higher ed, long distance travel and communication, and foreign contacts. The 9th is more than college degrees; it is the house of licensing and ceremonies. Saturn also in Aquarius would put even more emphasis on studying to fulfill a long-term goal. There are great deals for online study and courses these days. If you are already bi-lingual, you could find a dynamite job. One interesting thing about the pandemic is that every aspect of our lives took a huge leap to digital/virtual. If the virus was over tomorrow we would not be going back to the old ways. Of course we would all rejoice because we could see our loved ones, party, travel, go out to eat, etc., but all the government business, meetings, conferences, and probably a lot of classes would still remain on line simply because it’s quicker, cheaper, and more efficient. You people with Gemini rising have a very positive opportunity to tune into the future and position yourselves accordingly. The Aquarius transits trine your Ascendant. A trine is lucky and flows almost effortlessly. I don’t know if you will meet someone online, or form a connection with a group of people online, but it will be favorable and it will open up your life to new possibilities.

This is a great time for you to think seriously about your life, especially future career goals. Analyse your current job or career field and see if it allows you to maximize your potential in terms of satisfaction and fulfillment as well as financial needs. Even if learning has not come easily to you in the past, you have a special period ahead to either retrain yourself or advance to the next step in your career. Computers, science, medical, engineering, robotics and the newer technology are fields that need MORE people. I don’t have that kind of scientific mind. It’s all I can do to use the basics — phone, computer, etc. But I still try to learn one new trick each day. If that sounds like you, consider teaching others skills that you already have. People who have either Gemini Sun or Gemini Ascendant are really good multi-taskers. They usually have good vocabulary and language skills. You could teach as a side job or get an ESL degree while still working. My knowledge may be out of date but it used to take less than 6 months to get an ESL degree — English as a Second Language. This would enable you to teach online, to tutor privately, to teach overseas later on, or even teach at a community college later. It’s a very versatile type of certification. With the world getting smaller and people emigrating everywhere, language skills will be in demand.

The 9th house is also comparative religious philosophy and metaphysics. Anything you want to study or teach in those areas has a better chance for success for the next couple years. Maybe you like handwriting analysis. Maybe you can read cards. Or tea leaves. Or teach yoga. Yoga takes a few years to get the credentials needed. If it’s something you LOVE, then take that as a sign to proceed. I have done readings for over 50 years and I’m never tired of it, because I love what I do. I learn something new from every person I meet. What a blessing !!

The 9th is writing and publishing but the formal part of this industry seems to be in fluctuation. Yes, there are magazines and books still being published, but there’s a lot of stuff online, too. It’s not that you can’t succeed in the field, but sometimes I think people are getting so bombarded by information that they go on overload. So the formal writing of the 9th would be my last recommendation. There are other paths to satisfaction. Though I did a woman’s chart who had great birth planets in her 9th and she wrote Christian romance novels. She had contracts and used a nom de plume. She was paid about 10K for each book plus a royalty fee. Not bad if you love what you are doing :))

Well, folks, that’s it for now. I’ll be back in a day or two with more houses. Only 3 more to go…then on to Saturn. Life seems heavy enough already !! Stay safe, everyone :)) Jenae
