We have discussed Saturn in transition over the past few weeks and in doing readings, I continue to find that its deepest issues are coming up for healing. . Remember Saturn in the end of Scorpio is bring up a lot of deep emotional churning around shedding emotional ties to the material world as it gets ready to move into Sagittarius and a stronger spiritual world after Jan. 27th but the whole year is one of transition.  Saturn forces us to be more real with everything in our life and particular, finances, as it prepares to leave the material constellation of Jyestha. Now is the time to talk to a financial planner and get your retirement situation in order so that you feel more secure.  Be aware that these underlying feelings of dread about financial implosions are just a wake-up call to get you to look at your budget, income and savings plans so that you have a strong infrastructure behind you to support your spiritual growth. And yes the world is going through the same thing as Central Bankers have created huge debts for the world, inflated the stock market and not created real economic development and throw smoke and mirrors statistics at us to make us think that everything is great.

Saturn governs the base chakra and often spiritual folks work more on their upper chakras through meditation but if their root chakra is not developed and Saturn is weak in their chart, their financial planning and infrastructure and connection to the earth is a bit out of balance.  This can create a lot of instability and fear. Its like a pyramid. If the base of the pyramid is strongly  supported, the energies can move higher to the peak.  If we have a solid bank account and savings plans then we have the freedom to pursue our spiritual development and not be thrown off balance.  If the pyramid is inverted and there is low energy at the base and all the energy is very strong at the top, then there is no stability to support all the spiritual growth.  The current transits are challenging our systems.

Capricorn, the main home for Saturn, requires security and safety to move forward.  As it goes into transitional zone this year changing signs and staying in the weaker and more vulnerable areas of the zodiac, its security and safety issues are up. Capricorn rising in particular, with a 12th house transit from its home, may feel insecure.  China, which is a Capricorn rising country is likely to go through huge changes the next few years with this transit and their growth and debt structuring scheme has been a mess on many levels and Trump wanting to pull out support from China by his tweets and choice of cabinet members is causing a lot of shaking for this country.  It is all about rebalancing.   The Nixon/China agreement from 1972 has pulled a lot of US jobs away and supported China’s growth but it has hurt American workers and  our country. Globalism is great conceptually but Americans have suffered as US companies have moved jobs to foreign countries to save money and benefits.    The call to return jobs to the US makes sense but China will not be happy to have its dragon fires stirred up and I suspect that our relationship with China will be the biggest challenge as Saturn moves into Sagittarius and is 12 house from Capricorn.

We are still dealing with the Mars/Saturn exchange of houses and Ketu in Aquarius and this continues to stir up unconscious fear and dread and requires looking deeply into those fears and realizing that most of the time, that which we fear does not happen. 99% of the time, the things we fear do not manifest and it is the surprises that get us.  Remember that with Saturn in transition, that fear is all in the mind.  Do more meditation and yoga and breath work to transform the energy. The chair pose in yoga, grounds us to the earth chakra as does the Mountain pose so that we feel our feet grasping the earth and this creates more security in our life.  Use the fear as a wake up call to handle your finances, get into your body and take care of your health.  . Look up the magicians “fear sleeve” and expose him for the fraud that he is. You are infinitely safe in this universe.

Afflicted Saturn requires us to go more slowly, to not rush around like a rabbit and not to do too much; otherwise, our anxiety level increases and we are more likely to get sick from hypertension or anxiety-related illness. The cold winter increases the air element and fear.  a. Drink more hot water and calming herbal teas, slow down, do slower exercise, get oil massages and eat more hot meals and you can keep this aspect at bay. If you are running a Saturn period or are ruled by Capricorn or Aquarius or are Scorpio or Sagittarius rising, you may feel the impact more over the coming year.  It can get handled. The planets are your friends if you heed their advice and do your work.

On a personal level, use the transits to transform your deep unconscious fears, which is what is coming up in Scorpio to heal. What are you afraid of? What are you avoiding dealing with? What can you do to get in unstuck?
