Every month the Moon zooms through the Zodiac, making a myriad of connections and setting off constellations already hard-wired into your astral d.n.a, as shown in the birth chart.
It has recently come to my attention that the Moon on Saturn (your own personal Saturn, not Saturn where it is now) is completely worth monitoring. Closely.
It is a sombre little 12 hour transit complete with all the hallmarks of Saturn and more: it’s a time when you are lucid but low ebb, highly inclined to see the negative things and definitely packing zero tolerance for Qi Vamps, Zombies, clutter, dis-respect, the whole damned deal.
This may sound vile but it’s worth knowing when it is happening and planning around it. Should you try to glitz out and project fabulosity during the monthly Moon-Saturn moment? No. Should you engage in hardcore analysis of situations you usually prefer to leave sort of blurry? Absolutely.
But do not underestimate the psychic weight of this lunation. Old wounds literally ache when the Moon is on your Saturn. Long healed scars itch. Watch it. The areas in your life you feel or really ARE vulnerable become achingly, poignantly obvious and sometimes circumstances even conspire – or synchronize – to expose them.
It is a Moon for contemplation and emotional efficiency, not a shit-fest of retaliation. Nor fast-quick-fix decisions.
So to work out when this is occurring, simply find the degree (number) and sign of your own personal Saturn via Astrodienst or your chart if you have it handy. Then check the Moon signs – they are always on the Daily Horoscope page a few days ahead- so that you know when the Moon is going to be in the same sign as your Saturn.
That’s a start. You can narrow it down by taking Saturn at 0 to 10 degrees of a sign as being the first 18 hours of that Moon, Saturn 10 to 20 the second 18-ish hours and Saturn 20 to 30 the last bit of that Moon. But really, if you just KNOW when the Moon is in the same sign as your Saturn, you will soon learn to recognize and work with your monthly Moon-Saturn Moment.
