Ready for some spooky Saturn square insights? I mentioned the passing of Toni Morrison on social media the other night, along with my favorite quote of hers. But I just found another, and it spookily reminded me of the ongoing Saturn South Node alignment this year.
Could she, I wondered, have had natal Saturn conjunct the South Node? No, but she had the Time God in square aspect to her South and North Node. So that is a similar style of gravity. Natal Saturn in any aspect to the Nodes makes people more aware of their life narrative. And her Saturn was in Capricorn! She had three Saturn Returns and her Uranus Return as well.
A Saturn Square Compels Gravity And Purposeful Living
Here is the quote that is SO Saturn Square Node.
“The past is already in debt to the mismanaged present. And besides, contrary to what you may have heard or learned, the past is not done and it is not over, it’s still in process, which is another way of saying that when it’s critiqued, analyzed, it yields new information about itself. The past is already changing as it is being reexamined, as it is being listened to for deeper resonances. Actually it can be more liberating than any imagined future if you are willing to identify its evasions, its distortions, its lies, and are willing to unleash its secrets.”
And with Saturn on the South Node till October, we are all partaking of this energy. It is impossible to ignore formative influences and ancestral patterns. If you are trying to barrel along without regard for foundation, situations appear that inspire you to think about what you are built on. I say “inspire” because I felt “force” was a bit too triggering.
And another thing about Saturn that struck me while thinking about Toni Morrison. Saturn was in Capricorn over 1989, the year of Tiananmen Square and the Berlin Wall coming down. And Nelson Mandela was freed from jail in early 1990, after spending 27 years – nearly a whole Saturn cycle – incarcerated.
Now is the Saturn Return of 1989 and 1990. With Uranus and Neptune also in Capricorn, giving us a neat little Millennial sub-generation with the most fabulous astrology, it was a bit like now. We have intense triple Capricorn Vibe (Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node). And, as you can see, a societal shift is underway now as it was then. These astral passages don’t repeat but they echo.
