Saturn Transit Reading

Mastery page

Dear Mystic,

W.t.f  it’s Saturday night and I just worked and then did five hours of Mandarin for fun and now am reading this as my treat? Must be a transit!  Saturn on my Scorpio Ascendant, to be precise.

Shanghai Leo.

THIS sort of thing is classic Saturn light reading. I haven’t read Mastery but my fave motivator is Turning Pro – the classic Saturn or Uranus transit book. It is a weird, fast read, lit up by some strange but brilliant Uranian hyper-vibe.

Has anyone else read Mastery, Turning Pro or any other ‘get thy schizz together’ Saturn transit self-helper?

Mastery – Saturn in one word!

That book changed my life, straight up. I’m 22. I consider it a Bible.

Been reading Mystic Medusa! DIY astro all the way during my Saturn transit 🙂 Also, that book Rework, & The Rise of The Creative Class (which doubles as good ZZ fodder); I don’t have them in front of me & am too lazy to google who the authors are. I don’t do “self help” books: can’t stand ’em.

I’m scorp and I can’t vibe with self help books either. What I am loving atm is Erin Sullivan Saturn in Transit.. Super in depth Saturn knowledge, crazy breakdown of saturn though planets and houses. Still craving a bit more first hand knowledge on how people dissect their lessons and move forward after a big saturn transit.

I’m the same. A friend gave me one once, and I was like what, do you want to read it? I tried but couldn’t.

But would you class that as self help? I mean, in comparison to say Feel the Fear . Etc I mean that is pretty much the scorp mantra anyway so bad example but you know.

You mean, do I classify studying my astro & reading up on biz strategy for my strengths as self-help? Sure I do! Insight is helpful & I could always use more 🙂 But as for the “genre” of self-help lit, that I can’t do: I just apply my ed in behavioral science to myself prn. I think self-help books can be a good starting point for many or can be supplemental to a holistic program already in place; but by themselves are limited in utility.

Self-help books aren’t written for the person who’s been studying & practicing such professionally. They’re written for the lay person. I know too much lol. And I think that they frustrate a lot of ppl because it’s canned info: most ppl at not so textbook, not so one-size-fits-all. So, case studies: reading case studies I find most enlightening & would recommend for the higher cognitively functioning set. Ive read a shit ton of those in my time!

Hi. Ok yes this I can understand. I do get easily annoyed at self help lit. (Men are from mars, etc… Makes me want to eat broken glass. for example.) The one size fits all etc. But, but but. Sometimes it’s a good place to start, and if even one paragraph of that book leads someone to move one step forwards in understanding stuff, that’s a good thing. Not that you -weren’t- saying that.

“Feel The Fear” is a useful little book. Often there will be one, or two, nuggets of genuinely helpful wisdom in each of the classics of self help. But what those nuggets are, depends on who you are, and what wisdoms you’re missing. I find Deepak Chopra’s “Book of Secrets” fascinating, along with Alan Cohen’s “I Had It All The Time” for the almost casual way in which they open out the entire canon on New Age Spirituality…. but I am quite sure that if I had read either one twenty years ago, the entire thing would have gone straight… Read more »

Any clues ? I have a stellium in Scorp in my 3rd house….

Well even what you say on this blog is always interesting, and well written.

You are Sagg non? So you are intensely (sometimes hilariously) communicating search for truth x

Oh My Holy Fucking Jesus I Am Here. Now. With You. Not to overreact or anything 😀 Step 1) Download this now: http://www.amazon.com/Finding-Your-Way-Wild-World-ebook/dp/B006CQQQJ0/ref=la_B001IGLPAY_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1403608462&sr=1-2 Yes, that is $18 for a Kindle book. I very rarely buy hardcopy these days (apart from Memoirs of the Court of Louis IV and rare erotica) but I read half of this and ordered both this book and everything else she has written in hardcopy. Knowing that I *would make notes*. Step 2) Hold everything she says in your head like a flotilla of bubbles (collective noun, anyone ?) Step 3) Still waiting. With joyous anticipation.… Read more »

Ohhhh…. I soooo relate…. I’ve read so many I cant remember them…. currently reading the 7 habits of highly effective people… getting a bit bored with it, but must perservere…. I so relate to the page above and find it so true, particulary with saturn transiting my scorpio ascendant…. But Im also having to balance out some narly neptune transits now… and let me say, that neptune has some seductive nectar, in the form of booze!… I know so well I can chanel it into higher consciousness, but for some reason struggle at this time… Maybe because Ive been so… Read more »

Ahahaha.these are standard reading topics for me. 10th house planets and moon in cap. Corporate / achievement how-to lit soothes me. I feel slovenly and dissolute if I am not working on some aspect of myself. Doesn’t mean that I necessarily embody the information- being a mercurial fish I constantly doubt and look for ways to break / avoid rules. Maybe that’s my aqua mars. Non fiction looking at histories of power and development of social structures also interesting….

No joke btw. Just looked at my reading stack. A dense text for HR decision-making types about salary-setting in a corporate environment. What?!! Makes no sense to my current existence. Interests, yes (the nuts and bolts of how a large part of the working world operates). Existence, no.

I’ve read George Leonard’s Mastery! Also very good!

Twyla Tharp’s The Creative Habit is my Saturnian artist touchstone.

Ooh, I also really enjoyed The Creative Habit. It really resonated with me and my Cap moon. If anything I just admired her insanely disciplined work ethic…
