Good Morning dear Friends and Readers, Let’s continue exploring Saturn in Sag through the signs…

If you have PISCES ascending, then Saturn is transiting through your 10th house of career, reputation and public life for the next 3 years.  Saturn rules the 10th house, Capricorn in the natural wheel of the zodiac.  So even though Saturn is not that comfortable in Sag, it IS at home in the 10th;  that may help offset the transiting square between Neptune and Saturn, partly this year but mostly in 2016. It’s complicated.  You’re going to have to dig into your psyche, and be aware of the subtle parts of yourself to make the most of this transit.  Is it challenging?  Probably.  Whether it’s external events or internal ones is hard to say without seeing the whole chart.  It’s probably both.

One the one hand, it’s pretty ideal for social service work.  But it’s far more likely that you have a sense of ennui, of restriction and/or limitation at work.  You may feel stuck.  Sometimes the quickest shortcut to learn to be a good boss is to work for a difficult boss.  That could be happening.  You just have to slog on through without getting negative and when you’ve passed the test, that person will move on, or you will be transferred, etc, etc,  I heard a  story once about a boss who sent out about 100 emails everyday and expected them all to be answered.  How could the workers get anything else done?  My client endured this for the 2 1/2 years that Saturn was in his 10th.  If you are stuck in your career, or feel under-appreciated, the Universe may be urging you toward a different job or even a new field.  Some companies  share the cost of education, so be sure to check that out as part of your research.  This is not a quick decision to be made; Saturn is much more long-term.  You need to really think about what to do.

The complicated part is that Neptune (chart ruler if you have Pisces rising) is in or near your 1st house and this can mean confusion, depression, ambivalence, etc.  Most of all Neptune is saying “Listen to your conscience, your aspiration” , and put yourself sincerely and humbly in the hands of the Universe. The answers you need will come when you can ask with 100% sincerity, how best can I help the world?  I don’t care if you write, write music, make movies, work in social services or even a beauty parlor — that initial aspiration MUST be there in order to succeed with Pisces.  It doesn’t man you can’t have fun, but this IS a serious transiting square and it’s meant to shake up the staus  quo and get you on a better track — for yourself AND to help others. Maybe you need another degree.  Maybe you need a new and/or additional certification.  Maybe you decide to teach yourself magic tricks and entertain at childrens’ birthday parties as a side job —  bringing joy to others is very healing…

The transiting Fire Trines will be in your 10th, 2nd, and 6th houses — very helpful for making improvements with work and money, AND affirming your core values at the same time.

ARIES RISING:  WHAT A WILD RIDE !!!  You have Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, making conjunctions in Aries with any planets you may have in Aries.  Even on your Ascendant, you’re absolutely hungry, like a starving person, to reinvent yourself and have more freedom and spontaneity in your life.  I knew a woman with Uranus in her 1st and she got herself covered with tattoos.  She rebelled against the life she had and got divorced.  It was her midlife crisis, the early 40’s…

Uranus in your 1st encourages you to try new things — new sports, new foods, new friends, etc.  The Fire trines transiting this year are a huge plus for your personal creativity with Jupiter in Leo in your 5th, and for stretching your boundaries and maybe travelling since Saturn in Sag is in your 9th house, the natural Sag house.  People with ARIES rising will have an easier time understanding how the houses work, since their charts line up with the natural wheel of the zodiac.

This year is a perfect set-up for a high school graduate going off to college for the first time.  Enjoy the freedom, enjoy the dance.  But if you party all the time, expect Saturn in your 9th to play the taskmaster with penalties if you don’t take your school work seriously.  Remember, with freedom comes the responsibility to use it wisely. Saturn = maturity.

Transiting Neptune in PISCES in your 12th is square transiting Saturn in SAG this year and next.  There could be some very strong lessons, challenges, regarding alcohol and drugs. It may not be you but it could be around you, showing you the tragedy that comes when moderation flies out the window. Sag is the sign most associated with binging of any kind, whether food or drink.  Seek counseling if you need it and maybe get help for loved ones if it applies.  Not a good time to take a new medicine without researching it carefully first.

Let me tell you a true story. A local boy, honor student, 19, was away at college and he was on antibiotics and decided to party and drink. He didn’t know that the medication intensified the effects of alcohol. He passed out, choked on his own vomit and died.  Can you imagine the heartbreak for his family?

To end this on a happier note…One of the things Uranus represents is friendship, groups, and teamwork.  Since Uranus is in your 1st house, there is a lot of capacity for leadership through action and personal example.  The 1st house is how we present ourselves to the outside world, how other people see us.  Sports teams come to mind, but really it could be any kind of group. All social and fraternal groups — VFW, Habitat for Humanity, labor union rep, Food Banks, chess clubs, debate teams, etc. etc. You could be a big and benevolent influence this year.  And your intuition and quick instincts are  good this year.  Take First Aid — you could be a hero.

TAURUS RISING means Saturn is moving through your 8th house of shared money, shared power and intimacy. Shared money can include people who owe you.  Saturn here can mean a delay in collecting funds owed to you.  Banks, governments, large corporations and insurance companies all come under the 8th, but your mate, business partner or partners are also indicated.  In general, and due to the square from transiting Neptune in your 11th, Saturn is cautioning you not to lend money and/or possessions to friends.  It’s one thing to loan a pair of socks but quite another to loan your car.  Protect yourself and be cautious.  It could be harder to get a loan if you need one but actually, long term financial planning looks pretty good.  Those transiting Fire trines can bring you some help and inspiration re: buying a home, setting up funds for childrens’ education, etc. and Saturn in the 8th is good for retirement investing.  This would also include long term insurance needs.

There could be so much activity in your home, people in and out, that your love life gets delayed, too. Business travel mandated for either you or your mate could have the same effect.  While you both would like to be spontaneous, Saturn is suggesting that you may have to schedule alone time together —even to the point of leaving for a weekend just to get some privacy. This transit of Saturn in this house is good for reading and studying the sexual traditions in other cultures — both present day and historical.  Always good to learn something new…

I always liked the phrase from the Bible about praying in our closet. There’s the people on the street corner trumpeting about how holy they are, and then there’s the real ones who pray in their closet. Sag is the sign of religion and the 8th is a private house.  This Saturn transit is a great time to make your home your church, to incorporate your spiritual values into your everyday activities in your home.  No one has to know about it either.  Having a special meditation room is a luxury. Most of us don’t have an extra room to spare.  Many people I know make a meditation garden — a little nook in the yard with a tree, a special bench to sit on, with plants and flowers that are meaningful to you;  sometimes it’s the place where a beloved family pet is buried.  Inside your home, things could be as simple as hanging a picture that inspires you, or lighting a candle on the mantle.  I always liked the pictures of the angels watching over little children.

One more change of subject.  There’s funny interchange between Taurus and Sag, and I base this on memories of clients past, since I did a bunch of horses and their owners in the 80’s.  If you are running cattle and particularly if you are raising horses, then you better keep a close eye on the situation because something’s not right.  Saturn is telling you there is a problem.  Either the food is wrong, or an injury isn’t healing properly, or a trainer isn’t doing what the horse needs, or someone is scalping you financially, etc. etc.

Well, that’s it for now.  Stay tuned.  More soon. Blessings, Jenae

Hello Dear Friends and Readers, The last time Saturn was in Sag, online classes and satellite campuses were considered very new and progressive.  Today, many people can finish degrees or further their education online.  The internet has been a blessing is the sense that education is available to all, or to anyone with an internet connection.  There’s KHAN University with tutorials, there are satellites broadcasting lessons to remote schools in Austrailia, and probably in Africa, too, though I don’t know for sure.  People in the USA living way out in the rural areas can study              nursing and then do their clinicals  later.  What isn’t working is the huge cost of higher education.  I think Saturn will bring this issue into clear focus.  The ills and injustices in our country cannot be healed without education.  There are high school students that may graduate but are not ready intellectually for college. Just as there are different kinds of intelligence, some people learn by hearing, some by seeing, and some by doing.  Improved technology is and will continue to help people learn new things…

Another issue with education is there isn’t enough standardization for applying credits and classes when changing schools.  Between that and the student loan problem, I think we will see the pressure increase and graduates decrease until something positive is implemented.  We are already seeing the beginning of this in elementary and high schools — charter schools, contract schools, pay based on merit and students’ achievement, advanced placement — lots of innovative things are starting to happen.

I think education is going to be a very big issue during Saturn in Sag.  The young people need help.  Jupiter is in Leo this year, the sign that rules children.  I have been encouraging my private clients with kids to show respect and enthusiasm for learning, to make it a family affair…one child at a time.  What amazes me is the number of adults I have talked with lately that are just a few credits away from a degree, or completing a program.  These are the ones who have decided to return to school after a 20 + year absence.  They now have a terrific opportunity to advance themselves AND to also influence  the whole family for years to come.  When I was in social services we kept in  mind the old phrase — “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day.  Teach him how to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.”  This applies to more than anti-poverty food and nutrition programs — the key is the education.

Sag rules foreign languages.  The kids who become bi-lingual or multi-lingual are going to have a huge advantage in the years to come. If you are parents with young children, start this learning process now while Saturn is in Sag…

 

Let’s look at Church.  Sag rules both Italy and France.  Did you know that at one time there were two Popes?  One in Italy and one in France — hundreds of years ago…Rome and Avignon…So let’s look at the Catholic Church in particular since the astrology fits.  There are huge problems coming to the surface.  We have an innovative Pope and an antiquated, rigid church structure and theology that is excluding large segments of the population.  If compromise is possible, can it be achieved without alienating the extremists on either end of the scale?  It will be interesting to see if the Church can  re-invent itself while still remaining true to the core philosophy.  I see these debates going on in other churches, and other religions, too.  Is tolerance acceptable or a betrayal?  Is extremism a negative or just people remaining true to their beliefs?  You see this in government, too.  Ultimately, I think each person must decide for themselves how to live with integrity and still get along with others.  The news is absolutely  full of cruelty, persecution, greed and corruption — betrayals of all kinds.  Obviously new souls who haven’t learned the rules yet.  What goes around comes around.  Think carefully before you hurt your fellow man…

Years ago I read something in an Edgar Cayce book about a question of whether a man in ancient Persia created negative karma because his job was to put peoples’ eyes out as punishment.  Edgar Cayce  was a  famous psychic and trance medium who died in the 1940’s.  His answer to the question was if the man was only doing his job, had to obey orders and had no choice, there was no negative karma BUT if he derived pleasure from punishing, then indeed there WAS negative karma. In another book, he said that the people in the Romans who laughed at the persecuted victims in the Coliseum games generated extremely bad karma for themselves.

 

Sag also rules licenses and certifications as well as ceremonies.  Going back to the education theme, the next 3 years will be very good for people to upgrade their job skills if additional certificates are required.  A quick example.  People with certain majors, like English or Teaching or Communications, can get an ESL endorsement fairly easily.  Teaching English as a 2nd language opens up a lot of opportunities.  Plus it fits with the current transits, too.  Think about what kinds of upgrades will help YOU the most.

 

I always know when Saturn changes signs because my clients change.  For the last 3 years, I’ve had a lot of people with fixed signs, and a lot of Scorpios in particular.  Saturn can bring up problems that don’t fix easily or quickly.  Now the mutable signs are going to start feeling that pressure and already I have talked with 5 Sag clients.  The mutable signs are Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sag.  In Part 3 of Saturn in Sag, we’ll start going through the signs as to what kinds of experiences are possible.

Meanwhile, have a safe and Happy New Year.  Back soon, Jenae
