Who says Saturn Return can’t be amazing? Intense and hardcore granite-like shifting of energy or scoring of stability but good? Just before he vacated the White House, the then President Obama commuted the sentence of former solider Chelsea Manning. Manning has already served seven years of a 35 year sentence for releasing an unprecedented number of hush-hush military-industrial documents to Wikileaks and will now be free in May.
She has the ultimate astrology for a whistle-blower: Moon, Mars and Pluto conjunct in secretive Scorpio. If there is a more perfect alignment for muck raking, I have not seen it yet. And then Mercury, Saturn, Sun + Uranus in Sagittarius. The Mercury-Saturn conjunction is exact – principled and wants to tell the truth, at any cost. The commutation does not imply a pardon and there is a strong anti-Manning argument in that peoples lives were put at risk by the exposure of sensitive info. But it says that justice has already been served, and as a transgender person, (previously Bradley) Manning’s incarceration in a military prison was even more stressful than the usual adversity.
The announcement of her sentence being commuted comes with Manning’s Saturn Return exact – the actual liberation (assuming nothing weird goes down via the new administration) will be in May, Saturn on her Sun and Uranus trine. One way or another Uranus anything usually liberates you and most likely not how you were expecting. But Saturn is still Saturn. With this freedom comes responsibility and work. How will Manning use her emancipation? Thoughts?
