I have a query for you… I’ve been thinking about it for a few weeks now, and I can’t seem to settle on a solution.
I have Neptune/Rising/Sun conjunct in Sagittarius.
Ok so 6 months ago, I had no job and was living with my parents, while in a terrible (9yr!) relationship with an Aries that had gone well past its expiry date. My relationship with my parents was awful. Everything sucked. Most of all, I needed a space of my own. I was SO desperate to get out of my folks’ place.
Anyway, in mid-December I found out I was accepted into a PhD program, with a full scholarship. About 4 days later I had found a house and on Boxing Day I moved in. It was exactly what I needed, and what I had craved for so long. Less than a month later, Aries and I finally ended the quagmire our relationship had become. Uni started happening, and I am super excited about my research, which is essentially about movement (I’m in the field of sustainable transport) and perfect for this Sagittarius woman.
In the weeks before the last eclipse it started to occur to me that I didn’t need to be paying rent in this expensive sharehouse any more. All I need is a backpack, a suitcase and a laptop, and I can be anywhere in the world so long as I’m still producing work. This feels right. It also feels terrifying to be stepping towards living my dream. I have a lot of Saturn influence in my chart, in addition to Neptune rising. So while I feel so at home in the midst of a journey, I am worried about my Saturn side (in the 11th House) feeling unsettled. I burn myself out seeing people – even good friends! – and being “on”, and inevitably have to retreat from the world.
In different ways, info keeps coming to me about changes to my home, about improving it somehow. I see this as making my home on the road, but I’m wondering I guess if there is a feng shui for travellers?! How can Saturn be happy in motion? I’ve travelled a lot, but I’ve always been “away” and coming “home”. Now I want to blend the two, and make everywhere and nowhere my home, without stirring up Saturn anxieties.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this.
Best wishes and thanks,
The Wandering Scholar
Mate, your email makes me want to hashtag Awesome all over the place. Six months ago you were quag-mired and now here you are trotted around the world doing a thesis on MOVEMENT? Forget YOUR Feng Shui. I am putting up a shrine to you to enhance MY Feng Shui,
So okay, it’s an interesting question. I think Saturn is brilliantly fulfilled by WORK. Saturn is totally happy in motion. Plus you’ve just pulled yourself out of said quagmire and scored yourself a brilliant uni gig via pure brainpower so i think you’ve probably earned some full on credits with Saturn.
As for Feng Shui – it is just the harmonious placement of objects to enhance a living environment. If you’re on the move, you just bolster up YOUR Qi. Being happy, involved in your work, inspired, busy, motivated, genuine and authentic + not bogged down by inauthentic or toxic relationships, YOU are the generator of good Qi.
Why not sell this as a genius book concept – apart from the thesis – or set up a cult blog if you really want to be Saturn’s Pet lol?
What does everyone else think?
