How You Want Your Saturn Transit To Go…

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Gilbert Williams

Saturn transits should be this smooth, amazing blend of sagacious life lessons and wisdom increasing by gradual increments. But so often they involve a conk-out, financial and scheduling insanity.

Eg: Ii still have not actually moved house due to circumstances completely out of my control – thank you Saturn square Mars in Virgo.  But I have half moved three times now – it is exquisite hell for a Jupiter 4th House person but i am learning some valuable lessons about time + money + focus. Also, the people who are there for you when you’ve got practical shit going down. Always instructive.

Saturn is clarity of an icy-cold shower type tone.  Birch, Juniper, and Spruce when your temperament craves only gardenia, ylang-ylang, and warm orientals. But we need both.

Paolo Roversi

Stick with it, stay the Saturn course, do the self-mastery required and it ends up feeling like this.  Time and money become a hell of a lot more cool after a well-run Saturn transit.  Or even DURING.  Worldly stuff matters. Basics matter. Saturn is very much baseline.  My daughter’s new maths tutor (Cancerian) is totally Saturn.  Re algebra, she said, “mathematics is a game and one that you have to learn how to play.”

Hmm, speaking of Cancerian maths tutor, why am I feeling like Saturn personified (some days the svelte, composed kind, others the supremely patient hmmm so you wanna learn the hard way kind)? Is it because my beau is Saggable and copping the storms of Saturn? I totally agree. With Saturn, you embrace the irrefutable, irrevocable structure of numbers, reality, logic, focus, and all the little shit things that just make you go groan… Somehow, I’m banging on and on about how satisfying it is to Just Get Shit Done and he’s looking at me like I’ve just been released from… Read more »

Saturn: My Mergirl earned her Blue Coat in martial arts. Red Coats are Jr Asst Instructors. Blue Coats are Assts and at 16 are paid. She’s 14 and she earned it by… Cleaning up after the banquet!! She had missed lots of classes – wasn’t assisting much- and when she asked two months ago about a Blue Coat- she was told show up more! After the banquet she and I stayed to clean up- our headmaster and headmistress took note- it’s their studio. We stayed with Mrs. and worked while Mr. took a truckload back to offload. For three days… Read more »

I wonder if there are Australian versions of healing balms – instead of birch and spruce perhaps teatree and eucalyptus? any thoughts?

I have had a month from Hel or somesuch thing. I half moved into one place, and was sort of stuck half moved out of the other place, and before i could fully move, the new place flooded, and I discovered it was full of mold, which my landlady could not afford to fix. My boss was fired. New, more control freak types got hired in charge. I nearly had a nervous breakdown, could not handle the insane sales pressure and politics, and quit my job. I’m injured in multiple places, with torn tendons and muscles, and stuff wildly out… Read more »

Good vibes your way, mystic. Moving is always stressful.

I’m having Saturn sq jup… It’s like for every stride I make financially, I tumble 3 steps back due to someone else. I’m trying to be more independent financially and start saving. I had a recent breakthrough but due to sudden circumstance at work I lost 2 weeks of work / pay. So everything I made to save I had to spend. I feel thankful I had the extra funds to use but at the same time I’m annoyed that I am having the hardest time sticking to my plan.

Lo

I’m laughing (sort of)

Saturn is on my IC backing up towards my moon for the 3rd time
Squaring Jupiter ,Mars, north node AC and DC
Then it’s full stream towards Neptune and opp Venus

Am I being reprogrammed? LOL!!

Just wanted to share with you all…I just found out accidentally from a friend that my leo ex and the girl he was dating got engaged after only 5 months. I guess you know when you do when you have found the one. A little part of me thinks that he’s done it so soon to be able to say that he’s engaged like I had informed him of my previous engagement. Whatever. I shouldn’t really think of myself at the centre of his life lol. Scorpio full moon – got it – got the intensity and what I’m supposed… Read more »

Oh doll, do you have saturn square mars too right now??
Is it a housing transit right now??
I am finally moving in tonight to my still getting renovated place after some serious bouncing and travel transit/ total instability on return.

Hope it gets sorted soon babe

Saturn returning to my sunmerc/uranus for a last round in my 5th house before moon again. I’ve been sorting things out with my special friend as my uranus trine venus approaches in time for saturn 5th. What is the dating advice there??

When I think Saturn I think ‘pain’.
Pain lets you know you are alive.
Pain forces you to face the cancer eating at you.
Pain is also a figment of our imagination.
What is pain to a bunch of atoms?
Howevers a mysterious beauty pain can be
I wouldn’t invite Saturn or El Diablo to tea.

“Saturn transits should be this smooth, amazing blend of sagacious life lessons and wisdom increasing by gradual increments” Actually, I find this is generally how it goes WHEN (and that’s certainly the operative word, LOL) we take the first hint we get that we’re not quite headed in the right direction. Saturn transits are notorious for degrees of incremental DIFFICULTY when we don’t wise up the first, second, or even third time. “Can you hear me now”? 😀 But human beings generally don’t like to be told “no” – at least, not in this Era of Instant Gratification. Decades ago,… Read more »

It seems the last few hundred years around europe no probably looked like:”No – no food for you today! No fuel either”. Then you died at 43. If not earlier because No didn’t mean No if you were a woman ..and childbirth often resulted in death.
Saturn transits of the past I think resulted in the image of the Lord of Time being associated with the Grim Reaper, no?

It appears we are coming at this from different angles – I’m talking about charmingly antiquated concepts such as respecting one’s elders as evidence of how most people tended to express Saturn energy. It seems the everyday person was much more aligned/comfortable with the Saturn vibe in days gone by. Certain things were just expected of you and people just sucked it up. They respected authority, listened to their parents….these days *insert crotchety old lady voice* it appears kids today just want everything handed to them and don’t know the meaning of a hard day’s work. 😛 😀 I’m not… Read more »

My natal moon in Scorpio is all geed up and hasn’t been in the way of the ‘charmingly antiquated’ currently, lol. 🙂 The nice thing about history is that you can actually use it like astrology as a road map, so I am a little confused by the apparent Saturnian nature of the past you refer to as I don’t know what time, location and situation you refer to? In fact I have no idea what the Aquarian age means, because I had a look and found no agreement on that from astrologers. I am supposing you mean the 60’s… Read more »

Saturn is in the beginning of my 4th house…..that could scare or motivate me. I have sun conjunct Saturn natally. I want to have my house paid down and fixed up more.

Moving is rough on everyone MM! I did it 2 times one summer and again 11 months later. I got so horribly ill the 2nd and 3rd time. I was having Saturn on Pluto transits in my 2nd house.

Hope all gets settled with you quick.

Got into it with the spouse. Still frustrated. Ran down to the creek to sit and get away and saw a heron. First I saw his beak and he turned the corner and was trying to figure out what I was. He wasn’t scared but obviously sensed me, then flew away. Nature keeps me out of the far side of the cray.

Lovely moment. I love herons. Agree with nature. The birds are singing this morning and they calmed me. Been blasting which is not OK with me.

Nature. Birds. Blasting. Themes of my life since the eclipses. Witnessed illegal blasting during first eclipse, then during the following one caught a couple of other fuqtards stealing (or trying to) a golden eagle chick (!) from a nest perched up on a cliff which i can see with my binos from my shack. A call to the ranger and my angry hound companion, sorted the eagle thing out. But the blasting in uber-protected land, and the story behind that, has been ugly, and a trail of corruption has been uncovered. Uuuggh…just vile. Slimy characters begging that it’s “good for… Read more »

You are an Earth Keeper! Wonderful work you are doing. 🙂 Sounds like a divine place on Gaia, would love to visit the U.S. and see such nature as you describe.
I imagine Saturn in the 2nd as a keen ability to prioritise, place value and generally sort out the world about you.

Hey sphinx, thanx – all i wanted to do was get AWAY from this kind of thing. I live in a big loud city, and this is my haven – my family’s lived here for ever. This place is in Western Europe, sphinx – that’s why it’s so special – no other country here has this richness of flora and fauna – It’s all been destroyed. It’s tucked away in the corner of a country which is more famous for it’s coast and beaches – and which mass tourism has practically ruined. Also, this feels a bit fated – my… Read more »

Also – what i’ve been meaning to say all along, is that without Mystics daily letter and scopes as guidance, this could not have worked out as good as it has – especially the bit about waiting for Jupiter to go forwards. That was crucial. I had Jupe sitting on my Uranus-Mars in 10th Leo – just dying to attack – by i held back. It was sweet watching the fuqtards fuq up all on their own 😛

sphinx

Oh, I just assumed! Western Europe? I must to go there even more. I hope you are safe and sound skarab, so sorry to hear of your discomfort. Wishing you many blessings for peace and continuity of the living green and furry things in your neck of the woods.
Timing is everything re yr comment about wanting to attack. It’s so interesting to have that perspective that the astro provides. Even if the cycles are hard to appreciate, just having that eagle eye view can be enough to pause the reaction and turn into action. Love my MM!

So depressed….after loving torro so.Found out he slept with yet another friend…that makes 5! Not cheating, years before me. He will not admit it but I know he would hate it if it was reversed. My village is tiny, so I see these women at every function. Everyone, IT MAKESME SICK.

Yes. Agreed. I will try as I know that is right. Just hated being blindsided when he had so many times he could have told me. Realized me and her had a conversation that has a new light on it now. I do not like being in the dark.

I agree with supakali and i have lived in a small town myself. There is pretty much not a lot of choices. Everybody has already been with someone else you know.
Why does it make you sick? Because he didn’t tell you and you found out from someone else? Or are these women making it hard on you in some way? Because what matters is now, not what happened years ago unless stds or pregnancies are involved. Then that’s a whole different thing.

Oh Mystic. I am so sorry about your moving adventures. Saturn transits are just like you described. It amazes me how much power Saturn pulls out of you by the end of its transit. You do it with grit you didn’t know you have had in you.

Yup. Whoever called it for a shit weekend was right. Just got back from the most somber friend’s birthday party evar. My particular person of interest was all lukewarm with me so i just vibed lukewarm back. Ugh. Feels like swimming in warm piss water. I wish i could wash off tonight. The worst part was no drugs or alcohol was used at this party. So yeah not only am i half a decade celibate but going to straight-edge parties now. If only my 18 y.o self could see me right now. :/

Pi

Oh, baby. You will be invited to one of my parties when I have a space in which to party again. no one has parties any more. not even the friends who own their own house and who have no children. Who are these people? Do they not realise that they will be dead one day? Have they mostly sh!t friends? Are they over thinking the situation into some hideous bourgeois notion with hors d’oeuvres and colour-coordinated napiery? Why…WHY? This is a mystery of life I do not understand.

party for me is a means to feed my Jupiter and lilith in my 11th house, We The People, so as we’re clear and all. not to wake up smelling like an ashtray and wishing that i was dead.

None of that, just sitting around hands in your own lap talking about awkward things, no real flirting or touching, no dancing, no alcohol/ substances, even the food was all “healthy”. Saturn can’t throw a good party at all. And this morning? I woke up with a shitty sleep and feel hungover despite no alcohol!

Saturn has done 40% of my 5th and just gone square (just past my Mars, is on my Pluto or 6° to my Venus). I think l’m on detention. “But Sir, l want to go play footy”. “You’ll sit here and learn- no ifs, buts or maybes- period!” How do you work out your house ruler if it is empty? Is it Sign it starts in? Algebra: hah! 4a x 6b. Find X?. I asked “Why? Is he lost?”. My year 9 maths teacher cracked his rule on my knuckles.

Oh do I resonate with this. I’ve always said some brains have math pathways and others don’t. It’s too abstract for me. I was way more humanitarian and logical. If it takes two men three days to dig a ditch this big how long will it take four men to dig blah blah blah. It’s very dependant surely? The weather is factor one. What if one is hung over or has back pain. Maths is way too black and white for me. Then there’s the cancer sun moon Jupiter and Mars of mine. I’ve moved 15 times in the past… Read more »

Mystic groks Saturn better than any astrologer I’ve ever read. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through its transit of Scorpio over my sixth house these past two years without her.

I know Saturn will do a little coda in Scorpio from June-September, but I can already glimpse life post-Saturn transit: clearer about career goals, stronger foundation for my health, better finances, etc. It feels like this little reprise is a chance to take stock of everything that has happened since October 2012.

House hunting and moving and trying to get contracts signed before Metcury goes retrograde is less fun than people make it out to be. Not that life isn’t wonderful and I’m not incredibly lucky compared with 90% of the planet. But in the words of Holly Golightly “oh golly Gee Damn”

Was reading an astronomy article yesterday and It was mentioned that although Saturn is relatively large compared to earth it’s quite light. More like a huge beach ball than rock like earth that would actually float on a big enough pool of water. It’s opposing my moon for months, so I’m currently looking for a very large needle.
