EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN RETROGRADE IN TRANSITION: JUNE 10-JULY 2ND
Saturn enters the most critical area of the zodiac on June 10th which is between 29.12 Scorpio and 0.48 Sagittarius which is know as Abhukta Mula, which means uneaten, not enjoyed and unused. If you were born at the end of Scorpio or the beginning of Sagittarius it can give you an ability to not enjoy the blessings of life due to karmic circumstances but it an also propel you to gain stability and get to the core of existence. The Gandanta is know as the karmic knot and usually it can create a deep level of suffering that propels you to find universal consciousness and spirituality. It can bring up deep psychological or physical knots that need to be unraveled in order to find freedom. It tends to bring up problems that seem impossible to deal with like a deep knot that needs to be unraveled but is too tight to become undone.
Saturn retrograde, particularly if you have it in your natal chart, is about learning responsibility for areas of your life that you failed to deal with in the past. If you were born with Saturn retrograde, then in transit it tends to get activated and beckons you to be more responsible for that area of your life that you failed with in the past. So if you have Saturn connected with Venus or with Libra or Taurus, maybe you were not responsible in the past about being a good husband or taking care of your wife so the retrograde energy will bring that up again and the movement in the karmic knot may make it seem difficult to unravel.
The key word for Saturn is patience and doing your inner work. The gandanta transit is repeating the territory that we went through Dec. 26, 2016- Feb. 4, 2017 so look at what was not completed there and see if you can unravel it. The key is to get in touch with the deep karmic subconscious patterns and heal them and transform them. This transit will most impact you if you are Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising signs and only when Saturn is within 5 degrees of the person’s rising sign degree, or another planet by conjunction or aspect. So if you have planets in your natal chart 0-5 Sagittarius or 25-30 Scorpio or Aquarius or Virgo or Gemini between now and June 20th you will feel the impact and then when Saturn is in Scorpio aspectal orb will switch to 25-30 Capricorn, 25-30 Taurus and 25-30 Leo as being key between June 20 and late October.
We have been feeling the intensity already from Saturn but then it moves into the most intense area of the zodiac so you will be called up to work hard. The travel through this area starting on June 10th wants to unravel material sheaths and break free and this can create emotional turmoil. This area on the Sagittarius side is called Mula Gandanta (Sag. 0-0.48). There is a feeling of not being supported and this issue is coming up to heal. Sometimes supporting others is a way of healing your own lack of support. Mula gandanta goes until June 21st when Saturn moves retrograde into Scoropio.
Saturn at the end of a sign is weak and more critical and more of a perfectionist. Let go of any intensity about getting it perfect, work hard and be responsible in everything you do and you can get through this. Get more rest. Use this energy to make the changes you need to make to clean those old piles up and to throw out the old and prepare for a new life as Saturn moves into Sagittarius. If you are Capricorn rising or Aquarius Rising or late Taurus or Scorpio this energy will seem most intense. Also if you are running a Saturn period on the 1st or 2nd levels. Slow down and stay calm.
Go deep into the fear and recognize the illusion of it. You are safe and secure and no one or nothing can harm you. 99% of that which we fear never happens. Remember this. You are safe and protected.
Stay on top of this wild energy the by doing your yoga and meditation and drinking calming herbal teas. Stay calm and centered. Become Capricorn the mountain, solid, unshakable and soar high like the eagle into great freedom. The world around you may seem to be moving too quickly and we expect the world scene to get a bit more excited also as all the wild emotional churning will explode a bit and lead to more intense revisiting of all the anguish from the post-election shock. But trust that God has a plan.
