Way To Work A Saturn Transit

Catbird02

If you were taking some time this week to sit down and try to figure out what award-winning author Margaret Atwood‘s next project would be, your first guess probably wouldn’t have been a series of all-ages graphic novels about a superhero who is part-bird, part-cat, and suffers an identity crisis because of his conflicting predator/prey nature.

“I have concocted a superhero who is part cat, part bird. Due to some spilled genetic Super-Splicer, our hero got tangled up with both a cat and an owl; hence his fur and feathers, and his identity problems,” said Atwood.

“What should you expect from Angel Catbird? Imagine, if you will, a strange mix of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, Grant Morrison and Chas Truog’s Animal Man, and Ryan North and Erica Henderson’s Squirrel Girl,” said acquiring editor Daniel Chabon. “Angel Catbird is a humorous, action-driven, pulp-inspired story. And the only other thing I can tell you at this early date is to expect a lot of cat puns.”

Read the whole epic article here.

So this is absolutely brilliant.  Way to work a Saturn transit, right?
Margaret Atwood, a celebrated novelist, thought leader and Scorpio, is always the example i point people freaked about having Mercury Retrograde to. More great writers have it than not.
Anyway, Ms Atwood is closer to her Uranus Return (that you have at age 84) than she is to her 2nd Saturn Return and she has spent the last year having heavy Saturn transits.
For the last year, Saturn has been on her Scorpio Sun, square Mars and Moon in Aquarius, then opposite her Gemini Ascendant and Square Lilith in Pisces. It’s zooming straight for her Mercury Retro in Sagittarius as i type this.
Some people, arguably more so if you are at a certain age, would just be zonked out and dispirited by such a bonanza of Saturn crap. But no, she has dug deep and emerged with a genuinely ground-breaking collaborative graphic novel project.
It is in collaboration with the artist Johnnie Christmas. 
So i don’t know his sign but he has sci-fi horror series called Pisces.
Thoughts?

I discovered Margaret Atwood a bit late, only reading The Handmaid’s Tale last year. Her writing resonated with me so much that I have read everything I could get my hands on since then. I never thought to look up her natal chart and then this post revealed that she shares my Scorpio Sun/Aqua Moon/Gemini Asc. That’s exciting to me and gives me hope for a positive outcome for this seemingly never-ending Saturn transit.

I loved The Handmaids Tale – in the way you can love something dark and disturbing that keeps you awake at night and makes you look at the world anew and just see how fragile your reality its. I’ve read it three times since then. Was pivotal in my evolution as a writer. The Blind Assassin was my favourite though. It was a borrowed book and I’ve never been able to replace it (I need to try and fix that) so I can read it again. I adore non-linear narratives and it was one of the first books I read… Read more »

She really does her own thing and has fun with it. Ever-evolving.

Absolutely. She’s the zeitgeist. Never the follower. Creates her own ways of being defined. Writers the stories she wants to write.

And Black Horse is a giant in comics – they’re not DC or Marvel, but they are their own brilliant tour de force that allows artists and writers to explore the narratives they want.

Damaged flawed superhero trend the new and improved vampire trend?
I share Mercury in Retrograde natal, it often leaves me tongue tied and speaking backwards. A curse and a blessing.
I love her previous works will check this out next.

I’ve got sciatica. How Saturn in Saggo is that?

The sciatic nerve is believed by the Hebrews to be the residence of the spirit. It is referred to as the holy nerve. Kosher laws forbid the eating of the sciatic nerve of animals. So pain here can be a message of spiritual malaise or the opposite, spiritual breakthrough.
Finding the source of this ‘message’ and resolving it may relieve the pain.
Have a look at the story of Jacobs ladder. He climbed the ladder in intense sciatic pain.

Hmm..I’ll read up on Jacob’s ladder. Thanks. Have an acupuncture appointment in the morning.

I am convinced that Saturn is all about spinal alignment and all that supports correct postural alignment.
I’ve had intense neck pain for many weeks and the usual remedy of chiropractic adjustments is not helping, actually having more pain or the return of symptoms. So I embarking on a new endeavour of alignment from the toes up, instead of neck now.
I hope you have a great acupuncture session 12HV.

Howsya been?

I rolled my Kombi 4 weeks ago. nuthn happenend to me; not a scratch, break or twinge. My daily driver one. Still got my other one nearing completion. But I gotta 405 Turbo Diesel as second car. I think it was my Mars Uranus gift. I sold my bike last year; ugh!

When I asked my son to describe what I was like as a parent he said, without pause, half owl, half cat 🙂 I was chuffed!
I’m Scorp rising- so I think it’s a true reflection of our nature.

Oops – I read that as Angel Catbiro on the cartoon. A slight letdown to get to the text and find it is Catbird. Catbiro was really calling to me…

Catbiro lolol

I was clearly having a moment. Mars is squaring my natal Mercury today and Mercury is sextiling Uranus. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it *runs off to invent new cartoon character Catbiro* (he pens stories whilst perching on the back of my broomstick).

It’s funny but now that’s all I can see when I look at the image above. Catbiro.

Catbird would defo have Mars in Virgo and go around correcting punctuation in the dead of night.

Absolutely. And Bast conjunct Mercury in Leo (look at those pants!)? I wonder where his asteroid Gary is?

I worked for a while in the surfing industry, it was when surf culture and surf wear started to cross over to the general public. I met a guy who turned his back shed board shorts hobby into a multi million $ biz. selling surf shorts and tops to people all over the world. Creating ‘cool’ is a tricky job but his secret was simple. Go and talk to 14 year olds. Find out what they think is cool, what they wear, who they watch etc. They are the trendsetters. Then introduce those ideas to 25-40 year olds and they… Read more »

Ah, davidl… such cynicism! My two cents… I find it difficult to imagine that Ms. Atwood would be all that interested in the commercial aspects of comic book creation, given that she has always walked her own path, been independent, rebellious and somewhat provocative, and the fact that this comic is being published in association with “conservation organization Nature Canada and their Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives initiatives.” Also, I doubt in the end this is going to make much money… it’s a 3 book series published by an indie publisher. But you might be right about trying… Read more »

I don’t know if the old surf brand ‘Hot Tuna’ started out in a back shed but your comment reminded me of when I was 14, Hot Tuna surfwear was part of our school uniform on the Mid North Coast. We thought it was very cool! Loved that piranha 🙂

I better not say who, they are mega now, but it wasn’t Hot Tuna. Though I loved hot tuna boardies. A road trip up the coast always entailed buying HT boardies. The whole look and feel was ‘street’, they were the first to use blacks, greys.. Never wore them in the surf though they were too heavy. Definitely the coolest après surf wear at the time.

Didn’t a few of them start off in back sheds?
I’m pretty sure Quicksilver did, and probably Mambo.

Ripcurl was definitely a back shed start up – but they had boards long before they had clothing.
