EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN STILL DIGGING UP THE GRUNGE
There is a lot of suffering, anxiety, death or sickness out there and too many people we have talked to have been touched by it in some way. We wrote last week about so many planets connected to Saturn, and Saturn is in the constellation of Mula (Sagittarius 0-13.20), there is a lot of Saturn/Ketu energy at work.
Mula is owned by Ketu and it will not let you escape from the past. It requires that you take responsibility for past karma and do something to make it right. So like one of the 12 steps from AA, one has to make amends for those that we have hurt or injured and that has to be a theme for the coming years. So stretch out your hand first, say that you are sorry and do something to correct your mistakes.
This transit can make us face and address those ugly parts of our personality and correct our flaws and purify them so that we can become a better person. It is never an easy process but Saturn will not let up on us. Draw on your wisdom and insights from the past and from past lives to make those transformations now. Let go of the past and stop beating yourself up for what you did wrong. If you make amends in the present, then all is handled.
Saturn finally moves into a new constellation of Purva Ashadha (Sagittartius 13.20-26.40) owed by Venus in early March and that will provide some relief but still another month of heavy Saturn to deal with.
As Prash Trivedi notes, the diety of Mula is Nritti, the Goddess of calamity and yet she resides in the lucky sign of Sagittarius which mythical means she may destroy ignorance to reveal deep truths. Ironically, Nritti is connected to the peak of material achievement and yet the nature of this nakshatra is very spiritual in her quest to go beyond the domain of ego and self-centeredness. Will be interested to see if our politicians change with this transit. This star can give power and influence and great material accomplishment and can confer magical powers but often it releases its energy in an explosive manner–which is so true of Ketu.
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. Capricorn rising in particular, with a 12th house transit from its home, may feel insecure.
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. (If you want to connect astrology to hatha yoga and chakra analysis, see our workshop at: https://www.appliedvedicastrology.com/products-2/yoga/)
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. 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 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.
