Saturn Transits and Money
Saturn through Libra, Scorpio and Sag touched ALL of my natal planets. Yeah. That was interesting …. And during that time, there were a litany of changes to my mindset, expectations, career, and income. Now on the other side of that, I can see how my approach to money has gotten me in trouble. I have more debt than I’d like to admit and for a few months now, I have felt like it’s becoming unmanageable. (I took a significant pay cut when I changed jobs 2 years ago.) I’m happier/healthier/ more balanced now that I’m not working like a loon for 60+ hours a week.
I also managed to land a great relationship, which is looking super promising. Job change was a good thing) So looking at the long term, it’ll take me more years than I’ve been alive to pay everything off with minimum payments. Yikes …. I know. While I recognise that some of it is unavoidable, I can also see how my frivolous spending has brought me here.
I was recently offered a clean slate of sorts – close the cards, consolidate to one payment, at a significantly lower interest rate and be done with all of it in 4 years. Plus, I can choose to pay off early with no penalty. That’s definitely something that I would work towards. The catch, it seems, is that there will be a period of time when my fairly decent credit score (700’s) will take a dip.
So my question is – Does Saturn ask you to take a hit of sorts, to make the change he’s inspiring? Does the short term need to take a backseat to the long term plan? I think I’m on the right track here. But of course, your opinion would be most appreciated. … because you’re the best!
… Almost Saturn Savvy Scorpio Sun!
Dear Almost Saturn Savvy Scorpio Sun,
YES. In fact, probably the definition of Saturn IS that you are asked to sacrifice short-term gains for long-term satisfaction or security. Any form of regime that involves such – cost cutting/kilojoule cutting/shunning a substance altogether is essentially Saturnine. It’s not going to look ‘cool’ from the outside or provide a quick dopamine hit. But look at all you’re reporting back post-Saturn: “happier, healthier, more balanced”…
You spent tomorrow’s money yesterday. Now you’re time-travelling back or in a financial sense, stalled in time until you pay this back. Saturn IS the Time God. Obviously i am not your appointed financial advisor but from the information presented here, this is sensible. Why? Because unless you Ponzi up into a crazy scheme or two to try and score fast money (hello, Saturn is in Capricorn so no) you clearly can’t dirge along forever with this. And, i am not sure what ramifications the credit score being lowered would have but it doesn’t sound like you want to charge back into debt anytime soon, right?
This sounds like a brilliant Saturn in Capricorn plan and, if you like this sort of thing, why not create a graph or something you can measure your progress with? There are apps, right?
What does everyone else think?
