EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN ON THE EDGE
With the tragedy of the fires in California, our hearts go out to all our displaced friends and to those who have lost loved ones or property. The intensity of the current energy is very connected to Saturn in a very specific section of the sky. Ironically, we are also suffering from too much smoke in Chicago from some problem in our hotel while visiting our 96 year old Dad. May God protect you with angel’s swings and hold you in deeply in his bosom during all the trauma.
My colleague, Jeff Poole said it best in his post today:
You saw the frailty of the external world and how all you’ve been building to make you stable and safe, offers you no guarantees. This brings questions about the old seeming truths you’ve been believing in. This belief got ripped out by its roots…what is safe, safety?
A new belief is arising today after that old belief yesterday got ripped out by the roots, in the wake of those firestorms and senseless killings.That new belief is something like: “There’s no certainty in a field of change. And you’re not in control. Everything is just happening.”
Revisiting my Saturn post from a few week ago as it is rather relevant:
Saturn is in a dark place until Nov. 27th as it moved into the 4th pada of Mula Nakshatra (Sagittarius 10-13.20) where we have to transform our regrets from the past and deal with difficult karmic circumstances. This a repeat of Feb.-March 2018 and I know I had 3 friends pass during that period so unexpected karmic surprises can rear up here if you are running a Ketu period or a Saturn period or are Capricorn rising. This is of course dependent on very specific tendencies in your chart so do not worry but consult a professional astrologer. It would impact you most if you are ruled by Ketu /Scorpio rising, or Saturn (Capricorn or Aquarius rising) or have malefic planets in Mula/Pada 4 (10-13.20 Sagittarius) or are running a Saturn/Ketu or Ketu Saturn period. Astrology should never be meant to get fearful. This is a heads up to clean up your act. Malefics may be stressful but they serve a purpose to move us to transform our lives and things that are pulling us down.
Mula/4: Destroys materialism and security in order to create moksha and can cut you away from those you love. It can bring very deep and difficult lessons but ultimately it toughens you up like a good high school athletic coach so that you are stronger and more courageous. Emotionally, fear could be up strong as Saturn is in Pada 4 ruled connected to the Cancer which has an 8 relationship (Ashtamamsha) with Sagittarius to it brings up difficult energies that need to be transformed. You cannot run away from your challenges with Saturn so get support. The only way out is through!
Ketu the owner of Mula which is impacting Saturn is less strong than it has been the first three weeks of the transit and is in a more troubling part of Capricorn now so the period until Thanksgiving may still be a bit more challenging.
Jeff Poole quoting Steve Jobs toward the end of his life while he was hooked up to machines said:
“Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”. When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”. Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down . Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends… Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”
The good news is that Saturn will move into Purva Shada Nakshatra (Sagittarius 13.20-26.40) Nov. 26th for 9-12 months and will connect with its friend Venus and that will lighten thing up a big for Capricorn and Aquarius rising.
