Saturn As Tatt?

Saturn Tattoo - Astrology Body ArtElly – Fuqing Saturn

I feel as if i have Saturn tattooed onto my my fuqing backside at the moment (Saturn quincunx natal Saturn, unreal, you’ll love it) but i would not go and literally get the Saturn symbol branded onto my bod. NOT that i am judging a single thing anyone else chooses to do with their body art. But i feel like Saturn on your arm is just asking for it. Mark my words, there will be carpal tunnel syndrome from spread-sheeting on that arm at any moment.

Or maybe it’s actually really good and giant pterodactyls will swoop down from other dimensions to do your every bidding? Just because of THAT symbol on your arm? Β I got acupuncture the other day from a Cancerian Wizard cleverly disguised as a martial-artist-chinese-herbalist guy & he was saying that acupuncture comes directly from shamanism and that you can have certain symbols infused into major meridians of your body with amazing results. So, like, WOW. Sacred tattooing.

If you knew the most magic and supernaturally meridian of your body and could have a hot witch type do it painlessly and with indigo magic fluid, what symbol would you have done? Β I’d want an Ankh and then the Pentagram for Venus. Saturn transits, i like to think, are too short-lived to have actually etched into your body. BUT maybe that is the whole joke? Saturn IS for ever?

Thoughts?

Gawd, would I need a frigging reminder?

But I love elly’s idea of the balance with the synchronic reprersentation of Jupiter. That’s so profound.

I am also intrigued by the idea of sacred tattooing on the meridians of the body. Is that akin to the notion of dreadlocks naturally forming at the acupressure points in the scalp?

I actually HAVE a magical tattoo – I have a pentagram tattooed on my Sacral chakra. Had it done when I was 21. My sisters paid for it.

I’d like a vegsvigir on my wrist, but am still umming and ahhing about the actual design….

Also, tattoos are a LOT more expensive than they used to be.

I’m waiting until August to get a Saturn tattoo, I’ve had it planned for a long time. Only tiny, somewhere amongst the others on my arms. As a reminder and as a mark of accomplishment, this Saturn return year has been heavy!

I have so many astro themed tattoo ideas, I just need to live nearer an artist or studio I trust and like. I don’t get work done by jerks, bad juju.

Double Happiness was a bar i frequented some years ago… imagine if you got all the names of your favourite bars tattoo’d across your body?

Would you need to add the registered trademark symbol?

I’ve got a Chinese phoenix covering my left shoulder blade. It corresponds with my Scorpio/Pluto death/rebirth astrology aspects. It’s also only half done, as eventually I plan to get another phoenix to represent the idea of “double happiness”. For me I found an image that I felt a strong connection to and waited several months to see if it was a temporary fascination or if the hold would last. It did, so I knew it was the right choice for me. Finding a good artist is key too. I think it’s a good sign when they argue with you, being… Read more »

Saturn on my body? , should we look at the remedy like embedding a stone into the skin or wearing a certain stone Joytish style. I wanted to get the mercury symbol branded on my right arm . Making the brand out of 24k gold then going for it. My friend talked me out of it. Jewelry as talismans or amulets works. Maybe when it is all over a ceremony to honor the old man Task master might not be a bad idea. Who is your Daddy kind of thing???? Double Capricornio

Yes, Mystic has rebuilt the site extremely well, and been gracious to all her subscribers and posters.

It is a work well done with true grit, and I for one appreciate this site so much. It has been a haven, a source of ideas, info and challenges. I like to read how people think and feel and what they’re going through. When you go from being someone with a constant stream of lovers, friends and interests who is usually out and about, to drilling down the hatches into your own company, this blog is a little gem!

To have no fear at all means we aren’t facing our truth…

Being brave means doing the things that we fear the most even though it scares us. I live by this motto Ms, because to me, the people who are truly brave are the real heroes.

i always thought the point was after or during a rite of passage that inking does symbolize? maybe she feels she has earned saturn rather than showing off to ask for it? maybe saturn has become her and alchemically changed her and this was her symbol. like a lover or saying or any of the other reasons one does? you earn and it has become you

Charley

Yes, exactly.

If I survive this Saturn transit, it’s looking good right now but it’s been rough. I want it there as a reminder, most of my tattoos are decorative but I have a few smaller ones that are symbolic and it works for me.

Not a relevant response, but WHERE is Sweatpea?? Has she been commenting and I’ve missed her? I started to realise the importance of keeping distant tabs on people after Blue Libra. I don’t know any of you in person, but I get concerned when I don’t hear from the regulars.

Of course, she may just be on holiday…or moved on…but if anyone has a private contact for her (Pegasus? Sassy?) Maybe you could check

Well… maybe you can interpret my dream last night of a house that ate people. I spent all night getting people out of it. It got more and more cross as I would rescue all and sundry, wake up, fall asleep and rescue more people. It started with stranger and then ended up with family. At the end I couldn’t find my Dad and I my Mum was dancing, refusing to come out without him, wearing nothing but a pair of sneakers as the inside of the house was getting darker and darker… I wasn’t scared but it was a… Read more »

Venus – a house is usually about yourself. Are you taking on the woes of too many people and it’s exhausting you? If you can’t find your father, it might mean (as Father can relate to your male aspect) that you’re not standing up for yourself and setting boundaries, while your female side (Mother) is so busy looking after everyone else that it’s draining you big-time, and there’s no male energy standing up for you and your needs. This might be right off, by the way, but it might give you a handle on understanding your dream. Can you give… Read more »

This could be it…
Between my grandfather dying, my house mate’s debilitating depression and one of my nearest and dearest losing her baby, this last two months have been a bit…. of an outward flow.
I am not sure that I have the opportunity at this point to go ‘My time’ and take it.
I feel like I am doing ok. Just a little tired.
I woke up feeling/thinking ‘this is not good’… not good or bad. Just… factual.

Hi Venus,

I’m sorry to hear that its still so draining for you. I can highly recommend Black tourmaline if your situation is not one you can get out of. It transmutes negative energy into positive energy. It helps to shield and support your aura. A rose quartz as well, for soothing and healing…

I hope it gets better soon.

I got head-to-toe hives in 2003, lasted six months, which I am NOT saying you’re going to get, of course, but someone said to me that if you were like a cookie jar and handing out cookies to all and sundry but not replacing it with cookies for yourself, you’ll end up empty. I really do feel that the dream is a wake-up call to take a bit of time for yourself to top up your energies, particularly with what’s been going on around you. Someone likened dreams as postcards from the inner voice. I hope you don’t mind my… Read more »

😯 Wow, venus-a-go-go! Here is what I got… i think this is about being hurt. Experiences of heart break/grief. Possibly trying to save others is about rescuing bits of yourself in the process. Your dad is unavailable (was it his dad that passed?) and your mum is possibly unavailable due to your dad’s absence. She copes with his absence by moving with a sense of freedom, this may be the key for you during this time. I think nakedness is about vulnerability and the sneakers are about escaping, ready to go. The darkness is possibly the depth of hurt that… Read more »

Sorry… It’s taken me long to get to this reply BG! Yes, it was my dad’s dad that passed. My mum is remarkably vulnerable at the moment, she is retiring from her job which has been her passion for 40 years. I however, am following hard and fast in my fathers footsteps and being a contract worker/freelance. Not a failure, but not what I desire. However, the thought occurred to me today that even though it’s not what I want, it’s not bad. For instance, casual work means I get to do more things that will hopefully lead to more… Read more »

I had a pisces glyph tattoed on my ankle whilst in rehab!

It looked lonely so I added a chinese symbol for gratitude.

I’m now thinking of adding a little drawing of a closed circuit television camera to remind me of my karma

The whole ink job is beginning to look like blood poisoning tracking up my leg

Which planetary influence might rule tattooing?

Venus = body art, honouring the body and notions of beauty

Saturn = art through pain, chronology of your life-changing event(s)

Mercury = communication: a design that encourages others to ask about your choice, draws like-minded people

Jupiter = designs that keep being added to

Mars = power/combat symbols

Saturnrox
Saturnrox

Funny you asked, mille ! I just looked it up…tatts ruled by:
Mars (needles), Saturn (permanent), Neptune ? closest I can figure is sailors.

milleunanotte
milleunanotte

Neptune: institutions, and those who’ve been in them. The tribes of the locked-in.

Seafaring is still a dangerous job, though I’m speaking less of the navy than the poorer ships, where accident and suicide is rife. Sailors are superstitious and carry symbols (Neptune is also associated with charms, enchantment, spells) to ward off death.

Neptune: ink? art? caricature & illusion?

i have a half necklace on my chest (from a beauty spot in the middle) with symbols including my sun sign and ascendant and the corresponding elements – its really delicate and understated and one of my favourite body markings. i have a penchant for symbology

Perhaps tattoing a small Saturn on the side of each knee would stop the need for knee replacemants..just a thought.

The ramifications of a Saturn tattoo are too much for me to even consider getting one (and I’m a Cap Rising) . Personally, I’m still waiting to get my custom done “All-seeing-eye” done (see icon) but it always seems to be a little bit out of my budget. Though I guess when the time comes, I should research a good place to put it based on what ze Cancerian wizard says? But speaking of tattoos…..do I have aNY moral obligation in these two scenarios?

When Pluto moves off my Venus in 2012 he will have transited 7 Planets in my lifetime, SEVEN! as well as my North Node and Ascendant. So, in honor of that I would think it would be way cool to get the Pluto symbol with The Phoenix bird rising up out of it. Wouldn’t that be really freakin cool? I just might get that. I’ve certainly earned it.

Panda Girl

I’ve been thinking of a Pluto tattoo as well. I’ve got a serious natal Pluto and had Pluto transiting 5 planets in the last few years with my Venus and ascendant and North Node to go. I almost love the feeling of Pluto destruction now it’s like “Oh, I know you, get on with it then.”

I haven’t had any serious Saturn transits though so maybe after my Saturn return I’ll think that it’s a bit more powerful/important for tattooing but atm I feel I’ve ‘earned’ a Pluto power stamp!

‘It took courage to do some of the things i wish i had never done’
but not the tatoo-age as ended up staying in his hut for 2 weeks.
As he wore a frangipani lei for his fire-dancing show amongst other
greenery from head to toe, it was like living with human-nature. He would
come in and i’d swoon at his aromas.
The bathroom was ALIVE. The shells would start walking (hermit crabs)
around and the ghekko’s chasing each other. The wash basin was a turtle
shell.
And he of course was tatooed from forehead to toes.

Have to confess I had this done. Saturn pretty much rules my entire chart – Cap Sun, Venus and Cap rising plus 10th house Saturn conjunct Jupiter in Libra. Also Mercury & Mars in Aqua if you count the tradional ruler. It felt very Saturn sitting there and enduring the pain while having it done. I was also about to head into my Saturn return at the time. I’m pleased with it and felt like it was a way to honour all the hard work I’ve done getting to where I am. And yes, I realise how Cappie this all… Read more »

I wonder how the permanence of a tattoo operates on the desire to continually grow. If times and events have “cooked” you, do you need reminding? If you really grown fully into the person you are now, do others need to see the past written on your body? Artwork tattoos I can understand better. In the past the symbols connected one to a tribe. But now many tatts seem connected to a fashion; some designs can almost be pinpointed to a year!
