Having a Saturn square transit? It is currently on steroids. Or, you know, whatever the current It-performance-drug of dubious provenance is.
Whether your transit is Saturn square Mercury (me!) or Saturn square anything, it’s bringing unprecedented speed and strength gains to the arena.
Saturn squares bite the hardest, but any Saturn transit is ultra-powered right now. No sooner do you pull ahead of one scenario, the next hits.
A Saturn Square Transit Demands A Reworked Protocol
The signature of a Saturn square transit is that something banal or mundane morphs into an unrelenting shit-storm that demands maturity and resilience.
It stirs ancient angst and security concerns. Whether the issue at hand is mold, money, a complicated break-up, injury rehab, or trying to get a decent house – they usually have three themes in common.
(1) There are fuqwit Muggles who (refreshingly) don’t bother concealing their animosity. Consciously or not, they remind you of long-ago times when you were powerless or the recipient of unjustified enmity.
(2) The situation spurs both your resolve to never experience it again and regret for time/money spent in the past that you could (technically) have used to solve this issue.
(3) You realize that your usual techniques won’t work – that whatever it is you are dealing with won’t respond to more of whatever the standard protocol is.
Antifragility, Adaptability, And Resourcefulness
Faith, charm, your connections, and positive thinking are irrelevant to a Saturn square transit. They respond to anti-fragility, adaptability, and resourcefulness. But most of all, work.
Possibility: That strenuous circumstances create a deficit of time, cash, loyal people, and vitality so that you wind up appreciating them far more. You’ll also be more likely to make better ‘use’ of such resources.
Don’t know if you’re having a Saturn transit or not? You could tell by getting one of my Year Ahead reports, but that’s down for a redesign and rewrite. I will let you know when it’s ready!
(Saturn square Mercury transits mean you obsessively rewrite everything – the critical detachment is insane.)
But actually, think of the thing you’ve been pushing away at, like it is a gigantic boulder you have to move, since May. That is your theme. And weirdly, emotionally, it encompasses everything.
Saturn-Pluto Is The Worst Time This Century To Go For Fast Thrills Or Short-Term Gains
And Saturn is pumped because of being in Capricorn and near Pluto. That’s why it’s so unrelenting. Saturn crap in effect since May will ease by the end of November, as Saturn moves past those degrees.
But you are unlikely to feel victorious until February.
But by then, the depth of response you had to muster to combat this s**t-storm will turn out to have been a highly effective strategy. You’ll be more secure and wise, with your life allies identified and closer at hand than before.
And the people who took shorter-term gains or tried to advantage themselves by disempowering another will realize that Saturn-Pluto is the worst time of this century to that style of stunt.
Saturnine Mantra Number Eight: Take your time.
What feels most enfeebling or stressful now is strengthening you. That will be apparent by January, named for Janus – the God of Doorways and AKA Saturn X.
And it will be even more potentially rad when Saturn and Jupiter meet in December 2020 – in Aquarius! For more on that, listen to my 2020 rant.
