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

Good Morning dear Readers and Friends, If you want the overview and the dates, then read Part 1.

If you have SCORPIO rising, then Jupiter in Aquarius will transit through your 4th house of home and family. Usually Jupiter in the 4th will bring good news and expansion to you and your family. Some examples would be remodeling your home or adding something to it, a family reunion or celebration of some kind, and more people in your home. The family could expand through a marriage or a new baby. Often, graduations or the younger members buying their first home will coincide with Jupiter in the 4th. Since Jupiter is a planet that rules travel, relatives may travel long distance to come and visit you. I have seen it work the other way, too, that you travel to see them. Let’s get that virus tamed ASAP so we can enjoy visits safely again.

Since Aquarius rules friends and groups, setting up outdoor space for visits would be a good idea. There will be more people in and out of your home. This may be casual, but there could also be meetings or classes at your home. One time when Jupiter was in my 4th, a number of friends moved in with me. One family had a work contract in my town and needed a place to stay. Another just wanted to rent a room for short term. And there were a number of spontaneous gatherings, potlucks, etc. It was a very social year. Remember, with Saturn also in Aquarius, you don’t want to buy a home unless you plan to stay there for a very long time. Since Aquarius is in an air sign, keep an eye on ducts and HVAC systems, all the wiring and electricity, and remove or prune trees that could hurt your house if there’s a big windstorm.

The 4th house is unconditional love, the family history and genealogy, nurturing the young, and the next couple years in particular there may be additional responsibilities for seniors (Saturn). I have seen people set up daycare businesses when Jupiter was in their 4th, as well as tutoring school-age students. Tutoring could also be done online (Aquarius). If you are isolated or living alone, connecting online with friends and groups would be even more important. The 4th house is also one of the food houses. What you eat will be more important this year to help you stay strong and healthy.

If you have LIBRA rising then Jupiter in Aquarius will be transiting through your 5th house. The 5th is kids, letting the child in yourself come out to play, creativity, entertainment, and spontaneous socializing. Romance and casual dating would be the 5th, a more formal partnership would be the 7th. So, let’s go through the possibilities in more detail…

If you have kids, expect positive growth in the sense that they discover what they love — new hobbies, a particular subject at school, new friends, etc. There’s a passion for learning. Support that. For adults, they often have to re-define what fun means. Maybe the old activities seem stale and you’re ready for something new. This could be learning to play an instrument, watching different kinds of movies, being more creative with hair (the 5th is the Leo house). There’s the most amazing styles with braids now. Using the Aquarius electronics for making music, singing, etc., even at a distance with others, could be very satisfying. A lot of entertainers have prominent 5th houses.

Writing and publishing are ruled by Jupiter. Maybe this is the year you write your memoirs, or a romance novel, an adventure story, or childrens’ books. All of these categories are appropriate to the 5th house. The point is to have FUN !! If your life is dark and you are stressed, Jupiter can bring you long distance friends and groups that offer comfort and support. There are so many groups out there — about every breed of dog or cat in America, every state has an unemployment group where the members help each other navigate through all the red tape, Art America — an online forum for artists of all kinds, grief counseling, OA/AA/NA, etc. etc. Even church is virtual these days.

Romance with both Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is a little tricky. You could find yourself suddenly madly in love with a friend, but then suddenly it switches back from romance to platonic friendship. Or you could meet someone who is more of a catalyst in your life — they introduce something important into your life, but they either move away or leave. There are nice trines to your Libra rising that should make relationships and romance easier, but the nature of Aquarius is a little quirky. There has to be a mental and intuitive rapport. So…matters of the heart would also depend a lot on the rest of your chart. I would say, though, that you might want to watch the budget on how much you spend for entertainment and/or romance. Uranus in Taurus in your 8th squaring the 5th can be disruptive with finances. More on that when I write about Saturn…

OK, I must close for now…more coming soon, enjoy your Sunday :)) Jenae
