Completely Infatuated By Paradox

…and I remain completely infatuated with paradox.
— Anna Akhmatova

There is totally a poetic side to the haunting of Time God Saturn by Shamanic Neptune over the last year.  And just now, as it is finally ebbing away, a resonant echo or poignancy.  It’s linked into a grander cycle of course, these two met in the late 80s, squared in the late 90s, opposed in 2005/2006 and squared again this last 12 months.  Their next major aspect is in 2025, at Zero Aries, FYI.

At its highest vibe, Saturn-Neptune blends the structure beloved of Saturn with the magic of Neptune – as you sweep away faux magic, cheap tricks, lies, secrets that corrode your psyche and delusional relationships, you can’t help but access your genuine magic.

But let’s also acknowledge that Saturn square Neptune this last year was painful as fuq in many regards and that we were quite fond of some of those flimsy delusions. So you know thank you Saturn, it’s been fantastic but good bye AND…

Time Bandits

Hello to Saturn TRINE (this is just good, easy flow between two simpatico elements) Uranus.  Weirdly, Saturn is Chronos and all about the timely and things that TAKE time, like real wisdom, quality relationships, getting financially fit or fab abs and all that but Uranus THWARTS time. Or bends it. Warps? Saturn and Uranus in actual synergy can pull off really cool stunts and it’s just starting to stir around about now.

And the addiction or zombie thing you relinquished with regret under the chilly rays of Saturn-Neptune is now going to be something you wave off cheerfully.   (More on all this in the 2017 Horoscopes books and obviously the horoscopes on the site)…

saturn 4th trine uranus…8th Domestic home, asset may benefit from additional access to new resources? Independence…I’d be appreciative and work hard for that. I’ve just began to become more involved in a new career path, and jupiter supports this – after not having my own income for many years…however its opposite my saturn in 7/8th…which is showing up as a restrictive partnership…I should probably have let go of years ago… It’ll be over south node 2nd, old industry / design or art people…maybe as a way to secure income, resources… Not really enjoying saturn 3rd/4th square neptune 7th; especially to… Read more »

This week I purged my LZ addiction from my phone, blocked him everywhere I could and finally feel like I’m ready to get off this roller coaster of relationships with unavailable men. It’s been confronting and painful growth, but I am finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

Saturn square Neptune was so productive for me in so many ways that I miss it. Now I’m just left with the melancholy of Saturn on my moon. I felt that the square gave me a vision and projects. Time has def been messing with me as of late. I have Uranus conjunct ascendant, so I’m definitely sensitive. Fuq the clock and all that but the now IS like the Time Bandits. Remember when the kid had the best time with the king and wanted to stay and they kidnapped him during the party? I kinda feel like that –… Read more »

glad saturns getting OFF my neptune, at long last….neptune in the eighth….pretty much sorted taxes, im all above board, and similar to other peeps, dont see people who cant cope with real life but try and justify it to emselves…

Yay, I could do with Saturn’s help re transiting Uranus (currently opposing my Sun/Uranus conjunction). I made all the changes, now I am getting some Saturn turbo to deal with the aftermath. I feel all up in the air, and I need grabbing by the ankles, a warm bath and some soup, and some repetitive tasks, that cumulatively will make it all better. I can totally do Saturn, it’s the other planets that freak me out. Dark moon in Virgo, give me a cupboard to clean and a dentist to ring, I’ll be apples.

YES YES YES

Uranus square Neptune made this fish rising ORGANISED AS FUQ for the first time ever—and that’s there to STAY. YAY. It also saw me going pro and making creative dreams a reality with ruthless forward planning.

Saturn TRINE Uranus= magic wormholes? Anyway IT FEELS GOOD. I feel like I can actually build stuff, with uranian people and energy for the first time. Wow.

Delusions cast off? I think so.

I shouldn’t jinx it, but… I have a good feeling about this transit.

I just realized that Saturn will be trining my Midheaven (where Uranus is presently sitting) in a few months. That sounds like a supportive transit when I need it most!

Saturn-Neptune story. The zombie addiction thing was very fraught. Not me but my closest friend that i needed to separate from, an Aries with addiction to tobacco weed booze and ice. Yup mostly all at once and she LIVES, howzat for Aries stamina! Unfortunatley she was seriously messing with my energy as i got sucked into her illusional justification of why she blots out real life in lieu of a fantasy and witnessing the mess she makes of day to day practical living. She believes in Fairies, seriously, those little winged creature fairies. Strangely i do not miss her and… Read more »

The Saturn Neptune square has been in my 6th/9th. Holes in teeth. Problems with Virgos. Problems with hips. My IC is Virgo ruled and family issues have been off the charts. Suicide attempts, dissent, inheritance issues, dementia, personality shifts, tantrums and general discord. Now Saturn is sitting on my DC line. Pluto is sitting on my 8th House divider opposing my Mercury. Re the Timebandits pic, does anyone remember that joke where someone puts their hand on top of yr head and squeezes saying, “You know what this is? A brain sucker. What’s it doing? Starving!!”. That’s all I can… Read more »

Trine or trine, how is Saturn going to make it up to Uranus for cutting off his penis all those years ago? Venus is Ok with that but how is Gaia going to deal with this?

apt post MM – the saturn neptune square has been exact on my Asc (neptune) and midheaven (saturn) the whole time. Lots and lots of things shed, as you said: “as you sweep away faux magic, cheap tricks, lies, secrets that corrode your psyche and delusional relationships”. Even this morning coming to terms with a cheap trick I have used for years (sorry, not for disclosure!).

best wishes everyone with this dark moon – ohh for a day off, in bed!

I’m just getting started with the Saturn/Neptune business. Transit Saturn is about to conjunct my Natal Neptune exactly, then retrograde, in my tenth house. The whole thing opposite my Gem Moon. Going to last about a year. I’m nervous. Although, I had a great year this year. Parts of it were hard and parts of it were weird but overall it’s been pretty good to me.

From Sunday to Monday, overnight, the whole game changed. I do not know what it is, could be Jupiter in Libra Rising, could be my frenemy Pluto coming back, could be my favorite moon in Virgo (my natal moon), could be Venus on my natal Venus in 2nd….
I sleep better, I dream better, I feel grounded, I think more clearly, offers stream in…whatever it is, it was about time.

I’ve been having this transit from January and it completes soon. Saturday has been trining my 2nd house Leo Uranus. This is part of what Astro.com have to say ..Any task that requires long and disciplined application – learning a new skill, studying a new body of knowledge or simply working patiently at a long task – is favored by this influence, as long as it is leading up to some kind of creative change. Tedious tasks that leave no room for new experiences will not be so useful to you at this time. You should be working for change,… Read more »

I feel like a long-sleeping giant is waking up, or time is catching up, warp kind of thing… Def not a retro kind of warp: this is freight train, progressive warp. Does that sound ominous? I don’t mean it to: that’s the Pluto direct/Mars into Saturn’s house talking.

But speaking of progressive, if you’re still feeling the bern go to ourrevolution.com & sign up for info, action alerts, etc. Nov 8th is not the end: we’re just getting started! \m/

(Here’s an example of an action alert & why you should sign up: About a week or so ago I get a text: House Reps about to consider TPP, call your rep to say No TPP. And there was my rep’s phone # in the text. So in my pajamas I tapped the phone #, gave the guy my address & left my message for my rep. The guy says, “Thank you for calling: we’ve been getting a lot of calls on this today,” which brightened my morning 🙂 . All it took was 5 mins. A few days later… Read more »

Funny syztem in USA. In Oz, Labor n Liberal, will rarely be bi-partisan unless it is of a major national importance. We have distinct polarities here. Holden v Ford. Blanchett v Kidman. AFL v NRL. Syd v Melb.

Wow I didn’t know the Oz system is so partisan… interesting! When we get too partisan here, govt gridlocks & shuts down, nothing gets done. Team Blanchett! lol

Jokerman

Lol. We are in permafrost gridlock here. For the first in living memory a state govt (SA) the Labor govt invited a Liberal member to be part of the serving ministry. A rarity indeed.

On US elections, l felt Kerry got dudded by the system. Dubya was Alfred E Neumann. I did not think it could get worse. It has. Doubly so. How a real war hero got shafted by an AWOLer defies logic.

And why does it take so L. O. N. G? I know why…. but sheesh

If you really wanna know about polarities & gridlock come live in Spain. No Government now for 10 months. We’ve had 2 elections since Dec 2015 & still gridlock. Will most likely have 3rd elections in Dec.
Here you are either Left or Right. Left always has a majority but has numerous parties that never agree on anything – whereas the Right only has one party – so will probably win as the Left is torpedoing itself to oblivion.

I am so NOT into what I was obsessed with a year ago. Like, I look at that shit and think “Huh? Really?”. I say nay to the past and hey to the now.

None of the externals predicted by the Astro/Tarot has manifested the last 12 months. But the inner? BANG ON. We there together, Mystic – I see your fine Piscean self in the realm *makes two finger motions between my eyes to yours and anyone else who “gets” it* :p <3

I love Saturn/Uranus aspects – they are the very definition of “the weird turning pro”, which is helpful when you have a career that is a bit, shall we say, “off the beaten path”. They also provide great scaffolding for building more supportive social networks, especially in a biz sense. Plus the fire energy of this trine is so motivated and enthusiastic…what’s not to love about all this heat cheering us on? I say bring it ON! Uranus is going to be a very big player for me in short order and I’m very much looking forward to Saturn joining… Read more »

A fond farewell I bid to the one zombie who was so close, I mistook her dried bloodied lip for a smeared lipstick line… I did nothing but shed, shed, SHED this past year. Only for a last crowning moment of Saturn and Neptune’s last little fingertip slide revealing the biggest Qi Vampire I’d harbored for the last 2 years. It’s easy to miss, what with the pains of Mars retro, my scaled back retreat to rework my plans… I thought she was the one friend, one rock I’d been able to keep close, to lean on. That same rock… Read more »

I’m still feeling the sting, tbh. Missed a major deadline in classical mutable fashion (i.e. careless, avoidant behavior to the max) and will have to find a way to fix it pretty fast or else I’ll have to face my mentor (male, father figure vibes, v much embodied Saturn). Also went on a crying jag because I’m tired of living like this and while talking to my mom we figured this is mostly because the major depressive episode I’ve had since 2011-2012 has not completely gone away like I thought. And again the realization that you can never be completely… Read more »

Well your dates, times, attitudes, behaviours, stellium and realisations with tears ALL hit very true for this one yesterday, as in the previous few days. Except i try to avoid Mother,only cos i internalise her voice. But hover in circles around the other fam, while avoiding my mates just now. Sent a flag out to one mate, in anticipation of sending out the full unfurl to the others in the crew. Do they think i’m dead. They stopped checking in worried a week ago. Why didn’t i just die already and rebirth? There’s so much to appreciate about life and… Read more »

As a Plutonian, the concept of kintsugi has always been resonant on an extremely deep level for me <3 The breakage is an enhancement; it does not mean that we are BROKEN. It is merely what precipitates the mending, which is glorious! For these cracks are all a part of our character history, adding to the richness and complexity of our Story.

I love my scars – I have put a lot of energy into gilding them and turning them into something of beauty. And most importantly, value.

Sympathies Saturnine – I totally hear you as a v mutable fuquer-up of things! of course we all get frustrated with our limitations and liabilities but that’s the best way to progress to change, fill the cracks with gold etc. Its progress not perfection remember. I love that your mum can help you and support you – how lucky is that !?!

I have a natal Saturn trine Uranus so let’s hope that means a smoother transition when it is a transit in compatible elements even.
