If Saturn Were A Vitamin

Saturn In A Pill

If Saturn were a vitamin, it would be incredible. But of course the whole point of Saturn is that it is work – having to face reality and do a proper stocktake of our assets and liabilities. What you may call a hope or a gamble, Saturn deems a delusion. Still, i want a Saturn vitamin but meanwhile we will have to make do with our Saturn transits. Months and months on end of boundaries, sanity, cleanliness and pure raw clarity. 

On the weekend i met a Capricorn dermatologist who said he had been told he had a strong Saturn – he had zero pores in his skin. He also said that people wasted money on so-called status symbols but that good skin was the only status symbol. To look ‘rich’ a Rolex was irrelevant; you needed only a face and body lotion containing Retinol (he said it was the only scientifically proven skincare ingredient) and to eat zero starchy carbs. Zero. You have to develop a complete phobia of glycation. There is no magic pill. There is only discipline. I am just passing this on f.y.i. I have Jupiter near my North Node at the moment so am meeting all manner of interesting people. Hint: When Jupiter is strong in your chart, natally or by transit, strike up conversations with strangers. Nice ones, obviously.

And the Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday are up  – psyched because of the Sun-Mars conjunction in action Aries. That weird vibe some of you may getting?  It’s change…Eclipse Season AND the Zap Zone exact again. Coming Soon…So actually, it’s an excellent time to be doing your Saturn.

Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, it ripens after harvesting. Trees are partially self-pollinating and often are propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.’

If saturn where a vitamin it’d be white or silver-coloured, not blue. it’d be heavy. it’d have a lot more to say than it can or will. it’d resemble something like wisdom working overload. it’s be like hanging on tender hooks. it’d be a mean, lean, training instructor.

Retinol is an 8/10 on the Cosmetics Database toxicity scale (10 is carcinogenic, repro toxicity, etc). It’s basically concentrated vitamin A, yes?Let’s stick with the leafy greens.

Oh dear, another derm recommending Retinol…….ladies, this is a BIG mistake. Don’t let the white coat fool you. The poreless skin on him doesn’t mean it’s good for YOU. Quality skincare is NOT a one size fits all endeavor. Your skin is unlike anyone else’s and what works for one person might be a disaster for another. Besides, male skin is thicker and can tolerate stronger products than thinner female skin so his skin and product use, no one’s skin and product use should be used as ‘the’ standard for YOU. Long term use of Retinol on ANY skin will… Read more »

100% Agreed. I was prescribed Retinol for years in my teens, and while the short term effects were fab, long term it took a noticeable toll on. I haven’t used it for decades and would never be tempted to use it again. Organics all the way for me now.

Retinol is an animal derived product. Lets think about that for a second…

Now go have a coffee enema and drink some juice.

thankyou unconventional gem. Yes i remember many years ago reading in the Business section of the newspaper about David Jones (aus dept store) and its “high-margin products” on the ground floor / entry level of the place – i.e. this is the cosmetics perfume and all that goo. At that instant it pinged “cash not beauty” and pi, you’re being ripped off. i think i already knew this, but it was good to have it confirmed by a business review which only cares about money 😀

point being, i like dissenting opinions simply becuaes of the fresh info it brings in.

LOVE IT- a Saturn Vitamin!!! LOL I think my Cap moon a benefit right now. Saturn is on my rising. Atl least I may have the discipline to make it through the sheer hard work. I get about 1/2 of and afternoon off per week right now and there is no end in sight – and I am grateful for the work every day. I was actually told I was one of the nicest people in my office, always smiling. (Not something a Scorp Riser gets all of he time) In comparision to the last few years, I am happy… Read more »

I also have Saturn transiting my Sixth House now. I’ve reduced my consumption of sugar and meat, increased my consumption of green vegetables, gotten into a regular exercise regimen, and have lost a few pounds.

Still need to work on getting proper sleep hygiene and staying hydrated.

Saturn is doing a complete overhaul on my life right now. At very few times have I been through such huge changes. They’re for the good (I hope) but, in typical Saturn fashion, I probably won’t see the benefits for a few years.

Hmmm I think Sarurn might be all vitamins, coz we need them all to get through the ‘to do’ list right? Anyway thats just a guess. However, if Saturn was a fruit I reckon it would be a banana for sure. And Jupiter, maybe a great big juicy water melon? Making Venus a bunch of grapes yeah?

no a banana as too many carbs and sugar. fruit is too sweet for saturn. he’d be a celery stick.

But its a slow burning sugar in a banana….lasts for ages. Celery? I can see your point, but it’s mostly water isn’t it?

Electric Eel Libran

12-19 g of sugar per serving still sounds high to me if you are avoiding glycation stuff.

i don’t eat bananas because the high mold content makes me dizzy. It contains a lot of fusarium mold so if you have a mold allergy it will set it off.

Celery contains cell salts needed to keep electrolyte balance. Helps keep you slim. Boosts testosterone due to androstenone and androstenol content. good stuff!

Interesting I would like to suggest Saturn = Carrot and Venus = Tomato.

I am always impressed how many people know such awesome things about bodies and nutrition here. This post has been actual education for me. The amount of times I want to ping off into an actual discussion off topic because someone has said something in passing that has actually really clicked something for me even if it’s just them in passing. This is like the 4th moment. *tips hat*

Oh Saturn. I do love it, even after everything, even though it’s still in my 7th house (since Oct 2009!!) lessoning me right left and centre. I’d take a Saturn pill. Funnily enough, I had almost flawless skin my whole life until the month before my Saturn Return started in 2010, since then I’ve struggled with acne and eczema on my face. It’s been horrible, something really, deeply soul destroying about having bad skin but maybe that’s just my Libra stellium talking again. Retinols killed my skin, I prefer a good quality AHA or BHA, diet, acupuncture and minimal, chemical… Read more »

figures that Saturn would be an advocate of orthorexia. But i do have tosay my skin looked flawless without makeup, no pores, no blemishes during 40day juce fast. But also weakened, no energy to do workouts and mentally ungrounded. not sutainable for me long term.

Luv u Saturn but we were so 2011!

i do agree with some of the cap advice, i buy retin a from thailand online for $18.00 au a tube .1 per cent no prescription needed, only use at night due to effects of sunlight on retin a, has made a difference swore of starchy food years ago, recently booted sugar re relationship to liver and hormones, secret womens biz, dr john lee books well worth a read whether youre perimenopausal, menopausal or beyond.
Also trying more alkaline including chlorophyl less acid now i understand the crap i learned at school way back

it would make you do kegel exercises before you could get to the fun bit.

I see it as more of an essential mineral. something that if you didn’t take, all your teeth would fall out. (oo, so saturn!) i looked up glycation. it is the effect of sugar on one’s biochemistry, leading to ageing appearance. my mum mentioned this recently too, will therefore take as a sign. my sweet tooth has been reined in a bit lately. only 85% cocoa dark chocolate unless i really truly have to devour a leetle handful of something illegally sugary 🙂 has anyone tried retinol, how has it worked for you? I was even looking up cosmetic surgery… Read more »

I registered an appointment with Centrelink today because my job hunting is not going anywhere. How’s that for Saturn.

I see why people don’t try career changing like I have! I’m still studying but yeah it’s a bit fuqed that a reception job in my new industry seems unobtainable, yet once I’m qualified I’ll be picking which jobs I want, it seems… random.

if Saturn were a vitamin it would be an omega 3, a fatty acid that works in the body linking things together and repairing and in its final pathway as it enters the brain as DHA, one can think more clearly and gain more strength inside..outside, I usually rest more during a Saturn transit..I get tireder…. I was going to say, minerals, as they help our bones and teeth, and we should be consuming healthy food in order to get calcium and iron, but Saturn is gaseous so we must consider his power from a magnetic forceful point of view..something… Read more »

Yay, right, I agree started hemp seeds w Saturn on ascendant currently… Dinner tonight avocado and banana smoothie, bootcamp boxing thingo in the am… Totally doing the solo Saturn thing,not always happy about that but plenty of time for yoga, and that’s so Saturn good… At least some bliss in that… I’m just having to do as mm says above and then things don’t cave in… Shit still happens but I’m not analysing too much I cant, the taskmaster makes me move on and go for goals and dreams and constantly put self in the sweet spot… I wonder what… Read more »

so totally! In fact, I had one for dinner last night after talking to you….what else do you put in yours? I have tahini, honey, cacao, coconut oil and sometimes I toss some quinoa flakes and blueberries in there as well, with almond milk or just water.

I don’t swine. That’s my current brekky recipe. I do have my Manpower recipe. So I was with my then photographer boss and a guy who used to be in Manpower.
Toast, butter and Vegemite, avocado and then sliced tomatoes and fresh cracked pepper. He had hair like Fabio and his wife was there. Great Brunch idea.

Yeah who came up with that idea? My google search on this topic has failed to provide the culprit. Then I think of my fav scene from LA Story – the coffee ordering scene….I’ll have a twist of lemon.

I think the coffee enema is part of going RAW juice and following Dr Max Gerson’s program (from the 1930’s) to cure cancer and other terminal problems. Many have reported amazing success. Perhaps the idea of taking your strong long black backwards just freaks peeps out!

Change is supposed to be as good as a holiday, so I’ve been sampling a new skincare line. Thanks Mystic, sounds like it’s time for liquid chlorophyll. Been fine tuning a body scrub: coffee (the left over grounds from the French press), rock salt and organic coconut oil butter.

wow! are the coffee grounds and salt meant to have beneficial beyond their exfoliatory properties?

mm, yum. coffee is such a nice body scrub, though i find it breaks my face out. my newest scrub adoration is castor oil, honey, lemon juice, and sugar. magick!

Mashed strawberries is another good facial scrub, loaded with enzymes. I can’t go past Cetaphil for all the basics.

I’m interested in this cos my facial skin is really sensitive – like even strawberries sound a bit full on for me, and yeah, I wouldn’t put coffee grounds on my face, just in it 🙂 is there something good for sensitive skin?

Aloe Vera is my fav to soothe the skin of any redness and dehydration patches. Straight from the plant if you can. Don’t be afraid to ask for samples and find what works for you.

speaking of change, I have just become vegetarian – and I didn’t even see it coming! Well, pescatarian, actually. Are there astro signals to explain that?

I did a ‘General Life Reading’ on the aptly named Zap Oracle today (google it, it’s awesome). Very Zap Zone – lots of emphasis on adopting a calm, impersonal perspective, and metaphors of open windows/portals approaching. Also, ahem, an instruction to sit with my fear of death & see what it tells me. I will be processing this one for a while!

If Saturn was a vitamin, it wouldn’t work unless you do.

Like diet pills. You’ll still need to exercise to get to where you want to be. Or more like pills that make you work harder? Or maybe placebos?

Sorry, it’s 3am where I live and I clearly need sleep .. (Sun trine Saturn here tho)

JP

I totally agree. Or maybe it would make you feel totally awful until you got your shiz together, or if you were cutting corners.
It kind of reminds me of those diet pills that eliminate some of the fat that you’re digesting, but you still have to eat healthily anyway. If you’re sneaky and try and eat some chocolate or something….it aint going to be pretty.
