Readers of my Horoscopes will know that i am a big fan of the Mars-Saturn conjunction coming up this week. The Warrior Tenacity and Vim of Mars tempered with Saturn’s Mature Judgment is a winner. All right, fine. It could also be a reality flashpoint: an encounter with time, money, or stamina limits. But even if it is that, the experience will fortify your resolve and provide valuable data.
These two queries and my responses reveal more about this upcoming astro-thrill.
I’m scared, and I’ll be quick. I’ve been following your smart, witty, super fresh blog for months and know that September will be the grand finale of the Saturn-Neptune square.
The effect of this square, which is already scary enough on paper, is somewhat personal for me, as Saturn is conjunct my Sun in Sagittarius and Neptune sits precisely on my Moon.
I feel like I am the walking talking personification of the Neptune-Saturn square. You said in the horoscopes that we should remember how we spent last years Halloween for any clues on how it will all play out.
The Mars Saturn Conjunction Is A Call To Action
That’s easy. Last Halloween I was dressed up as Khaleesi partying in LA when a very Neptunian so-called friend drugged me without my knowledge and my entire life fell apart. I won’t bore you with the details, but I haven’t been the same since. In that time, my job, my home, look, relationships, friendships, favorite colors, beliefs all changed. Although it felt terrible at the time, I am better off now. It was like pulling rotten teeth without anesthesia for months on end.
Still, although I am learning my lessons and cooperating with transits, I’m not too keen on going through all of the last year’s agony again.
I read that these hard transits that come round three times through direct/retrograde/direct motion over a sensitive point in your chart are like a strict teacher. They shock you with the new things you have to learn, then hitting your fingers with a stick to make sure you learn your lesson, and the third time just checking if you did your homework.
Shit Happens That Compels You To Revalue Your Time, Money And Energy
Is that true? Will it be easier this last time around? Or can I prepare myself once again for the Apocalypse, that will inevitably happen in autumn/winter? Do you have any tips for survival?
A rather worried Sagittarius
Dear Worried Sagittarius,
I hope one of the “rotten teeth” you got rid of was that faux friend. As stressful as that event was, it exposed your circle of friends and this particular person for the negative vortex of toxic energy that they are. How else would you have found out?
During a Saturn-Moon transit, a book toppled out of the top bookshelf in a shop and whacked me in the head. It was so intense the sharp corner left a mark on my forehead. It was the Oriah Mountain Dreamer one. On the cover, it said, “wake my love, you are walking asleep…and there’s no safety in that.”
See The Mars Saturn Conjunction As A Bright Sword
See this Mars Saturn conjunction as a bright sword, cutting away darkness and dank spirits so your Moon in Pisces can shine. This whole episode has, if you think about it, forced you to excavate this iridescent enchanted moonstone from the stagnant waters.
The Mars Saturn conjunction of this week adds extra vim and guts to it. And yes, the third stanza will be the best, for sure. Maybe an affirmation arises that makes you SO relieved that you are in this new stance now.
As for my Saturn tips – I am weaving them into every Horoscope, always. Summary: no bullshit, value your time, money, and energy, have a proper plan.
As a dearest fan and long-time subscriber, I want to say thank you for the work that you do. Your empowered, intuitive, and inspired interpretation of the cosmos is fucking unprecedented and ridiculously on-point. No one does it like you, and you’ve carried me from my Saturn return to the bitter end of my recent Venus-Pluto transit.
I know you are busy being the queen bee of Astro- but I want to ask you a question about this Mars-Saturn hook up this week. I have a couple of other (mediocre) astrology blogs and scopes I gander at sometimes, and what the hell is it with these jerks? They speak so begrudgingly about this Mars-Saturn moment, which in my eyes is pretty incredible no? As in, this is usable and tangibly good for business.
Mars Means “Set Your Stance”
I have been plugging away trying to make shit happen in business realms and dealing with the most dour of relational crap. But I have two super essential meetings this week for a creatively brilliant project I have been concocting. To me, the timing felt empowered and useful. But then I read this other humdrum crap, and it made me second-guess.
Anyway, you the queen – and if you can’t answer I get it, your horoscopes have erred more on my side for sure. But really why do other astrologers feed into this negative predictive BS? Thanks for doing it right. For fuq sake.
Devoted subscriber for life,
Jennie the Taurus Sun Saggi rising
Hi, Jennie the Taurus,
Thank you! I think that everyone has their distinctive style of astrology and that people find the voice that most resonates with their own. I like to try a positive angle to work any planetary vibe and have been studying Saturn in particular for ages. That’s because i know it is suspect number one when crap goes down. But in Sagittarius, you keep on seeing things as they are – not as you want them to be. And once you get through the disappointment/irritation, it’s strengthening and liberating beyond belief. You’re not putting any effort into flimsy facades or trying to pretend shit is real when it’s just not.
So i don’t usually read other astrology as i like to do my own thing, but I did see something the other day, and the gist of it was that Saturn would cramp the style of Mars, like a dark, gloomy Saturnine shroud over the exhilaration of the spunky Mars. But Saturn is like the Sage, representing wisdom that you can only get via time. Or through making poor decisions and then having to live with those consequences.
So when Mars meets Saturn, you get the vim and tenacity of Mars as the Warrior, tempered by the Saturn caution.
As for meetings, i have scheduled them up to BE this week and specifically on Wednesday.
And, as you say, it’s the culmination of something that’s been trying to happen all year. It’s also on the eve of Eclipse Season and the final Saturn-Neptune square. So Mars-Saturn is our opportunity to set our stance and greet September from a stability standpoint.
