Saturn, Pluto and a messy, manipulative breakup with kids involved sounds like a formula that would explode in the laboratory. But no! As you will see from my response to this question, there are advantages to tackling this sort of challenge during the Saturn Pluto Conjunction.
The Saturn Pluto Conjunction Favors The Sort Of Mindset You Need To Stabilize The Situation
Dear Worried Scorpio,
Congratulations on identifying and then extricating yourself from the relationship. Break-ups with hostility and children involved are hell, as I am sure many readers of this would attest. But if you maintain your integrity, as hard as it is, this phase will pass, and your children will one day recognize you for it. The good astrological news is that the Saturn Pluto conjunction favors the sort of mindset that you need to stabilize the situation.
It rewards composure, planning, realism, and diligence. Regardless of what you think of your ex-partner, your children will want (and deserve) a relationship with him. This is assuming he is a competent parent and not dangerous to them. And that you will need to have him in your life for a significant amount of time, but with increasing distance as your children mature. The next five months of Saturn and Pluto are optimal for mediation and ideally coming to a parenting agreement without rancor.
Ideally, move to get an agreement or decent mediation with the excellent astrology of September. You don’t want a fight. You want stability and peace. Deploy Mars in Virgo vim to devise an arrangement that would work for the children and try to resist toxic bait from this person. That means accepting that you won’t ever win particular arguments from that relationship or get validation from him. Brilliantly, though it may not seem like it now, you really won’t care about it at all.
Consider D.I.Y. Orgasms Until After The “Custody Battle.”
As for “hot and heavy romance vibes,” I am not a fan of dating during custody battles. See the Capricorn Convergence as a climb toward the safe higher ground of January 2020, when the conjunction is exact. Listen to my Mp3 on this, if you have not already, as it goes into more detail. Consider D.I.Y. orgasms until you’ve resolved the situation. This goes triple if there is any risk of complications from a tryst. Casual sex can create casual enemies, and you’re trying to detoxify your psyche at the moment.
Vaguely crushing on someone as a diversion, leisure and sleep aid? Genius. But as an Aquarius Rising, you’ve got Saturn and Pluto in the 12th House. As grubby or material as the process may seem, it’s an evolutionary soul trip. People often think that “spiritual” involves you meditating or setting up a shrine. But profound spiritual growth often occurs when you must dig deep to navigate turbulence that seems decidedly mundane.
It helps that you’re a Mars-Saturn person but actually, that means you’re not one for speedy hook-ups. You’re built for quality alliances and are a formidable opponent.
Saturn Pluto Means The Practical IS The Spiritual
Focus on the kids, friends (you find out who your real friends are during divorce, guaranteed) and family who are supportive, not part of the problem. It is difficult to manage when you’re paying legal fees and under pressure but try to get some therapy for yourself. It would also be useful to see an accountant you trust to get on top of your personal finance. You’re emerging from a long relationship, healing your psyche and establishing a stable platform for your future.
And, the Saturn Pluto conjunction helps reconstruction jobs like this. Not only that, as an Aquarius Rising person, you’re ruled by Uranus. Uranus is in Taurus, backing the theme of foundation, financial clarity, and self-esteem. With this going on, the practical is the spiritual. Creating a secure and tranquil home for you and the kids under such circumstances is not easy. But it will call forth resources you did not even know you had. What does everyone else think?
