Saturn spends two and a half years going through each sign of the Zodiac. When it’s Saturn in your sign, you’re different, more muted and respectful. Even if you’re not having a direct Saturn transit, you feel the Saturnine energy. So there are now 45 more days of Saturn in Sagittarius to go.
Today is the day that you can confidently assert to Sagittarius folk that their ever-present sense of not having done enough, the foreboding feeling of their own chronology and of Status Anxiety will ease in exactly that amount of days.
With Saturn in your sign, you don’t embrace the grind. You merge with the grind. You become the grind. And you stop wondering why parent-boss-figures in your life – past and present – did not meet your needs. You’re your own parent-boss-figure.
With Saturn In Your Sign, You Master Time And Money
You’re too damned busy to clock the heightened regard in which you are held by others. Even people who hate your guts have a grudging, seething respect for your demonstrably awesome ability to keep your shit together. Time and money cease to become occult forces that are seemingly out of your control.
But you won’t appreciate any of this till Saturn moves on out of your home constellation. Yes, Saturn can, of course, be (say) squaring your Moon or doing something else funky to a personal natal point. But Saturn in “your sign” – that is, the same sign that your Sun is in – is a distinct Saturn-era of your life.
It is its own weather system, a stunning but oppressive array of platinum looking clouds with golden linings and the threat of an imminent thunderstorm, always. Everything feels like history. Time is compressed and turned inside out, operating in multiple dimensions a la the physicists. And all the time you labor against gravity, literally as in weightlifting or strengthening your bones and in the metaphysical sense. Your footfall feels heavy on the ground. Calculations become a form of meditation.
Calculations Become A Form Of Meditation
Only once you have burned off every gram of denial or naff desire can you defy the weight of all that which would hold you down.
Forty-five more days of this 140-week astral passage to go. Tell your Sagittarius friends and see even the most resolute Muggles relate.
