I’m really nervous about the upcoming Saturn transit into Sagittarius. I’m an rhd student, I do research in philosophy, and I a bit terrified about what sort of havoc Saturn in Sag is going to wreak over the tertiary education centre. But is there a reason to be hopeful? Saturn brings losses and hardships with the ultimate aim of making what it touches stronger – is there potential for this saturn transit to rebuild rather than destroy the university system in many countries which have been vastly deteriorated in quality due to economic pressures. What will happen to the liberal arts and humanities, will this be the final nail in the coffin? Or will Saturn in Sagittarius punish those who have worked against the spirit of higher education, against wisdom and learning, and more important, against the neglect of teaching in such institutions.
Hi Concerned Saggo,
Well okay i think Saturn in Sagittarius will totally put the subject more on the table for discussion, a la this article in Salon but in general i think this is a casualty of Pluto in Capricorn-the Zap Zone sort of issues.
There is vast amounts of tax revenue being lost to subsidies of property investors, foreign military interventions and don’t start me but apparently not enough to properly invest into higher education, health and innovation. It also seems to be a theme of Pluto in Capricorn that governments all over the world are going into massive amounts of debt and generally encouraging their citizens to do the same, in the absence of any real improvement in wages or the real economy.
On the face of it, it does seem unfair that members of the Pluto in Leo generation who had their own tertiary education subsidized by government are now ensuring that (in general) Pluto in Scorpio pay a hell of a lot more to access a depleted system. But with Saturn transits through any sign, situations are often improved by a frank and delusion-free assessment.
As you note, Sagittarius rules (amongst other things) education and i would LOVE to think that Saturn in this noble sign would somehow correlate with fresh solutions, new innovation and opportunity for all. But let’s see what the next big super intense seven months of the Zap Zone finale bring.
I know heaps of you peeps on here are more informed and insider re such things than i – thoughts?
