EYE ON ASTROLOGY: SATURN in EARLY SAGITTARIUS
Saturn is unsettled in the first constellation of Sagittarius until March 2nd. We have been writing about this one for a while and will continue to do so. Saturn will creating restlessness and desire for change. But will the change help?
Saturn will also be anxious also in March into April 2nd as Mars moves toward conjunction with Saturn creating frustration. You are going to have to get used to it or drive yourself crazy with wanting to change jobs, relationships, homes, routines. Change is good but will it really resolve the restless feelings inside? Handle the restlessnesss with yoga and meditation and diet and then evaluate more severe changes in the light of common sense when the planets are strongly and when the mind is clear. People think that if they change the outer, than there life will be better. Sometimes there is just a need to accept what is in the relationship and at work or in a community. If there are difficult challenges coming at you that require change, then go for it. Wait for a clearer decision making time probably the first few weeks of March when things should lighten up.
When Saturn is unhappy, it tends to be more fearful and creates this sense of dread. When it is solid, it is Capricorn the mountain, unshakable. You can ground Saturn by being more in your body with walking, the chair pose in yoga, deep knee bends, extra yoga and slow exercise and Tai Chi. Avoid cold drinks and dry foods and favor sipping hot water and slowing down and eating hot unctuous meals. Exercise is grounding but slower is better and running can be intense for many unless you have a really kalpha body or are Taurus rising and need heavy exercise to get unstuck.
An unhappy Saturn can lead to a lot of grumbling so remember to do your gratitude exercises everyday to replace all the thing that are not right with those that are. (Chair pose below grounds the base chakra to the earth to create more stability.)

“This almanac is truly a masterpiece and labor of love. Barry is a gifted astrologer and writer.
