A Saturnalia Update

Greetings Saturn-Pluto Trippers!

The light blogging this week is because I am extending and maxing up the Year Ahead Transit report and finessing the new Personalized Daily Horoscopes – done off your birth chart.

Naturally with Jupiter in Capricorn, I broadened my vision and then went obsessive on the possibilities.

Remember, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are all ultra-potent at the moment; it’s a weird blend of metaphysics, magic and snout to the grindstone.

If you’re over it, listen to my 2020 Mp3 for future highlights.  Or share here.  To recap, there was Pluto on the South Node, Saturn on the South Node, and both of them have been in proximity since April. This January, they’re exact conjunct, illuminated by a Lunar Eclipse, no less.

The last time this happened, Human League’s Don’t You Want Me was on constant rotation, Prince William was born and E.T. was the movie sensation. Jane Fonda’s Workout was the best-selling book and video, also nicely launching the legwarmers craze. Yes, it was 1982 people.

There are only a few more weeks of this astro-fuqery to go and then it won’t be back until the late 2050s.  If you’re not wiser and more magic but also exhausted and cynical, what planet are you on?

So, thoughts?

I’m looking forward to the personalised daily horoscopes! Wow, Jupiter in Capricorn natally. It makes sense somehow. Born to rule/lead…and rule our hearts you do. xo

In 1982 I was 18 and studying year 12 art and design at my local TAFE (instead of in Melbourne studying graphic design) but it was a wonderful year. Great teachers and met some great fellow students. LOVED the early 1980s music and politics — new romantics, glam rock, punk etc. We were a cynical and nihilistic bunch who were obsessed with cool hair cuts and clothes. I was itching to leave my country town for the city, but found compensations…

scorpiodawn

today i eill mostly be listening to Jethro Tull Solstice Bells.
Such a paganistic druidy, christmassy song, love it.
Wish i could have a fire in my garden but forbidden by the landlord.
Maybe i’ll have a mini ritual burning.
Merry Solstice everyone x

I loved 1983, not so much 1982…..♥️

emg

2019 was the building on And burning bridges of the changes I sought in 2018. Now I’ve got to continue with the new life and jump with both feet. Having got back to the uk I now know I not coming back again. Life is south for me now and all about the sea. For a very watery girl it feels divine.

Whitehawk

‘wiser and more magic but also exhausted and cynical’ is totally my vibe right now! In fact it feels like my new normal. Thank you for putting it into words as I don’t have the spare energy. Saturn and Pluto has been moving across my sun through my six house the last 5 years and have been moving across my North Node conjunct Jupiter more recently in the my seventh. I don’t even know what else to say other than, bring on my Jupiter return!!

Megs

Saturn/Pluto will conjunct on my MC Jan 10th, then stay there for the better part of the year. I feel big changes are in store, but I also believe that they’ll be largely positive. I do have Saturn rising in Taurus, so maybe I’m just used to the Saturnalia influence?

babysinclair

So very exhausted. So very cynical.

VirgoProtocol

I saw the last film yesterday in the Star Wars nine (‘Skywalker’ centric) series and It’s satisfying to note: the original series ended in 1983, and the more recent sequel trilogy, ending, bang on end of this year. Surely the ‘Skywalker’ story concluding this year has Saturn Pluto themes….

Nearly Solstice. I’ll be happy when the heat subsides. Currently churning through 247 aircon at home with major Earth sign guilts.
Happy though our four chooks survived the Adelaide heat wave.

Saturnalia blessings xx

WizarDora

I would love to send some of our (near constant) Uk rain. Blessings upon us all for some post apocalyptic 2020 balance. Currently I’m taking lots of “Fuk it all”, it’s just like “Nightol” but with more cynicism xx

emg

I’m sending freezing Scottish temperatures too. Gods how I miss the warmth of Southern European summers !

Saturn in Pisces

Saturn is on my Ascendant and FUCK. I feel like the years and years of work to resolve my intense suicidal depression just vanished… I’m consumed with hatred for others/inability to recognize and accept love in my life/paranoia and suspicion/feelings of crushingly “not doing enough” and believing I’m lazy even though my physical body is screaming out for a break after the most intense work year of my life with a damned ugly mysterious rash across my entire face and a fever… anyone other 20 degree Cap people suffering?

LA

Not got a Cap planet (But do also have a fever!) but I have seen a few friends experience Saturn over the Asc recently and it’s been rough but it WILL PASS. I had Uranus cross my asc not long ago and it was the start of a new me. Sending lots of love and you are not alone! X

Saturn in Pisces

It will pass indeed! I am already handling it much better after practicing more “surrender” and being all-but-forced by colleagues/family to truly rest this weekend. Thank you so much for your kind words and I hope you are enjoying Uranus transiting the 1st house and revolutionizing everything hopefully in the most positive way!

babysinclair

Hang in there. I don’t have anything at 20 cap but I do have the north node at 20 Aries and it has been an incredibly intense year for sure.

Saturn in Pisces

The square is extremely rough! Saturn (and Pluto) squaring my 8 degree Aries Moon (when Uranus was also crossing it) was the worst of my life… Hope you are using the square as an opportunity to refine your approach to your destiny and hopefully to fulfill it meaningfully for you! Thanks for reaching out as well. <3

SourPatch

I’m a 21 degree Cap Asc and I feel like I’m losing my resolve too. ☹️☹️☹️

Saturn in Pisces

HANG IN THERE! I actually felt 19 degrees the past two weeks was worse than the actual crossing of the Ascendant – the last degree of the twelfth house is the worst “inward” experience of it, I think. You’ll make it! Saturn is going to move pretty quickly through the early third decan of Cap thankfully…

Leo-Scorp Grrrl

I don’t know how I survived Saturn in Scorpio (ascendant).Fall 2012 started the ride. It was a punish. All kinds of other squares the next few years finishing with Uranus conjunct my saturn in Aries in 2017. Keep going and keep better care of your health and energy than I did. I learned the hard way to ask for help. Yes, to rash and exhaustion. Mind the signs and take some break where you can. As a single mom I felt like I could not.See where you can set boundaries. I’m in such a better place now and the lessons… Read more »

Saturn in Pisces

Saturn in Scorpio was worse IMO (Saturn on my Scorpio Midheaven almost killed me, no joke). Thank you for sharing your experience and reaching out – when I wrote that comment a couple of days ago I felt that all the work I had done (to try to take appropriate time for rest, set boundaries, etc) had suddenly dissolved, but I suppose it was perhaps an emotional “last hoorah” for all the unsustainable coping mechanisms I developed during Pluto in the 12th house transit, that Saturn in the 12th has slowly but surely rooted out… I’m glad to hear that… Read more »

Starinspired

Yes, suffering ‘Saturn in Pisces’ & interestingly I have the burnout, mysterious rash & fever also; they’ve been ongoing for me since health plummetted from Cap Asc overexhaustion and those damn crossings of Saturn/Pluto/Sth Node all over it (Cap Asc) in the last year or more (5 hits from Pluto, thanks very much!) My Sun is also at 20 Libra, so I’m getting the Saturn/Pluto/Sth Node conjunction on the Asc and squaring my Sun also. Just so you know it’s NOT just you, you are definitely NOT alone in anything you’re feeling and have written of above. It’s about as… Read more »

Saturn in Pisces

You have the rash and fever as well!! Saturn Sickness, we should call it. And 5 hits from Pluto, I feel you!!! As a Cap Asc it is so easy to overexert yourself to begin with, but with this massive cosmic pummeling it’s just another level… I’m just thrilled I don’t also have all this squaring the Sun, I can’t imagine the intensity of that. My heart goes out to you! Since I wrote that comment, I did take some desperately needed rest, and I feel significantly more balanced – I quit some supplements I was taking to try to… Read more »

Saturn in Pisces

Thank you to everyone who reached out to me after I wrote this – I am feeling a lot better after Saturn solidly made it into my first house over the past two days, and I am so so grateful for the support and love of the Mystic community, sticking together and encouraging each other through these difficult cosmic times <3 Everyone in my industry is off for a least a week and a half so I *can't* work (well I suppose I could but I'm seriously trying not to!!!), which is a real blessing… my goal over the next… Read more »

my friend who has 20 cap ascendant-has recently come out of hospital after having cancerous tumours removed.
he now has a colostomy bag-not sure if its gonna be permanent…hello pluto….

Saturn in Pisces

I am so sorry to hear that, sending good energy to your friend <3

scorpiodawn

thankyou.
sending good energy to you x

Alouetta

So far, so intense. This year has really shown me my strengths and supports. It’s been non-stop slog, but I’ve slowly crept closer and closer to work that is more meaningful. What a gift!

Some rain would be nice. I feel for all the animals trying to escape these fires. Let’s hope the new year is a kinder one for all of us.

Thanks for holding this community together, Mystic. It’s a real blessing to have.

Alex

A bit off topic but today in Adelaide it’s high heat (46 forecast) and windy, with a dust storm to boot. I woke up this morning and was seriously feeling the heebie jeebies, why? Well, as if the weather isn’t frightening enough, it absolutely reminded me of Ash Wednesday back in 1983 – same feeling, exactly. Foreboding, big time. Out of interest I checked the astro for that time and was very interested to find that Saturn and Pluto were close then too. On that day also Uranus and Jupiter were up close and personal. On Ash Wednesday a whole… Read more »

South

Yes Lexie
I also live in Adelaide and remember Ash Wednesday too!

Scorpleocap

Yep, was there for Ash Wednesday too! Now far away and in the thick of the NSW bushfire smoke. How freaky about the astro…

Pegasus

Gwen you too! Now i don’t feel so alone with you and Lexie here.
Taurean Alchemist moved to Gold Coast and Blue Libra died. They were members from many years ago with whom there was sympatico, a ‘U2’ understanding.

Wish Upon a Star

Dont fret. Stay safe baby .

Starinspired

Riveting re: the astro Lexie! And I totally concur with how eerie the vibe was on that 46C day.
It’s still a bit odd, very Mars/Pluto.
But then I’ve always felt uneasy in Adelaide; my Pluto line runs right thru it (Astrocartography), so it’s always somewhat intense & never my fave place to be (city of corpses etc), but it’s tricky with family here, can’t seem to get away indefinitely 😬

A very fortunate escape for you though.
Have you done your astro-locality/cartography for Adelaide?

Alex

I have looked at the astrocartography yeah, and there’s nothing much in close proximity. Adelaide is a funny ole town. I got back in early 2016 after 20-odd years away. I like it, it’s easy here, but there are some areas that have a really unpleasant vibe – the city centre is very patchy. A friend of mine reckons there’s a demon in the casino – nothing would surprise me in this place. I’m keen to move to Italy as soon as my sons are old enough that I can zip off 🙂

Pegasus

Lexie you are in Adders too. It is upside down city as the Feng Shui layout was based on the northern hemisphere. Light was governor of Penang before Adelaide and used the Chinese principles for wrong hemisphere. That’s why everything planned goes bottom up here or is done and has to be redone or never gets done. Seriously weird stuff happens here. The capital should have been Pt’ Lincoln but no water there. The city should have been at Pt’ Adelaide so roads are diagonal rather than grid so the sun is not blinding you whilst driving. Maybe it’s just… Read more »

Pegasus

Star you are here too. Strange am just finding this out now maybe it was never mentioned. It seems we feel something is off here. Always thought it was the Feng as mentioned below.
Airport was always my fave place, always leaving then being drawn back, more dragged back kicking and screaming, then escaping again for months but mostly years.
So now there is a group of us, so strength in numbers for the Uplifting of Vibes.

Starinspired

Yep, it’s definitely a light quotient thing Peggy!
Liftin’ the vibe 😉💖💫
So now that the heavy lifting is done, & the new templates are formed & anchored,
can we please leave?!🤩

Pegasus

Yes woke up and thought is that dust’? It was smoke.Had the same feeling. The day after i was severely breathless. 46 degrees was punishing, the air hurt to breath.

JacQui

I feel I need some sort of Pheonix ritual to shed the old to prepare for the sparkly magical new.

current

Never noticed Phil Oakey’s (lead singer of Human League) crooked lower teeth until now?

Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

Maybe Ms Fonda will do a spectacular new movie, involving legwarmers, aliens and Human League soundtrack.
I can see it now….she was a waitress at a cocktail bar…

Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

I did the timeline thing as suggested in the last Daily Mystic….WOW moments aplenty. It has been an evolution and a grind and a half, but I feel READY for 2020. Plans. Magical future Intentions.

Really excited about the personalised scopes!

Chrysalis

1982 feels like just yesterday to me!
I am all those things right now. Really needing the two weeks’ break.

virgosun

I am just tired to the bone. Worried sick about these fires and the drought. If we get good rain and it can be over Jan it would be fantastic.

South

Maybe we can all be rainmakers
Remember reading that book 10,000 books ago
Black cover by Blackheart?

Starinspired

Oh Gwen, CIA ~ Cosmic Intelligence Agency (of Astrologers) sent out an update yday re: doing exactly that; rainmaking! ☔️🌧Check ‘em out on fb or their website for info.

surlatable

I just remembered that the contents of my body have been here since the beginning of the material universe and have experienced uncountable forms and will continue long after I die, so I think I’m good. The awe about what’s is probably got a bit caught up in the dazzling array of vanity to observe, but the protons just kept dancing the whole time.

That simplicity is really staggering.
I’ll probably not get too worked up over a breakup again.

Wish Upon a Star

Yes just keep dancing !

FireTryin'

This is incredibly inspiring. A resonant phrasing, an expanded view, and a grounded knowing.

“I’ll probably not get too worked up over a breakup again.” Perfect.

ICPluto

It dawned on me that, as I approach my 5th decade, this is probably going to be my last Saturn-Pluto cycle. The conjunction in my 8H square exact my 11H Aries Sun is, I believe, responsible for such realization of time and finitude, and what still lies ahead. This past weekend, during a dinner party, some friends and I started discussing the Stoics and the concepts of “dignitas” and “Fortune”. Mind you, these friends are well prepared for apocalyptic circumstances, like having a remote bunker with provisions and adequate (really adequate!!) defense. Our positions can’t be more contrasting, as I… Read more »

I 100% want to schedule a Jan 2054 meet up. Pisces, so check for future beachfront property. Ask the bad news pals for their prognostic sea level rise maps and I’ll build the villa.

surlatable

I just checked my progressed chart for 2054. I just became a cancer, my sun is conjunct my south node and my moon is in pieces in the 4th house.
Conveniently my ascendant just moved out of the via combust so I think it’s a go.

Wish Upon a Star

Congrats Sk. Nurture that Katala and it will serve you well. Mine progressed into Leo a year or so ago. I like it.

ICPluto

Wish, good time to activate that Solar Plexus! xx

Wish Upon a Star

Oh thanks ic.

My passed over cat Eliza Jane made her prescenxe known during Retro Merc Scorp by leaving an impression on my bed that I felt.

And most recently by sitting on my solar plexus. She was sending me strength.

South

Isn’t it WONDERFUL getting visits…
Wake up and realise that yes it was a true thing and you can feel their weight as they circle and settle, hand to pat and settle them…
What an honour Wish x

Wish Upon a Star

Thanks Gwen.

ICPluto

SK, my Progressed Sun will conjoin my natal Cancer Moon in 2050. I don’t reckon I’ll be around, but who knows after Pluto’s reign in Aqua! I have another friend who signed up to have his head cryopreserved. I don’t think I want go that route. Lol xx

surlatable

Who know what wonders all the work you’ve done so far. I’ll be 82 and will probably be in the best shape of my life because of some bizarre realization or wacky new invention. By 104 I could be finally feeling like an adult.

Skarab

Liberation sounds like the more exciting option than survival, that’s for sure.
Happy Saturnalia, ICPluto!

ICPluto

Skarab, fear is excitement without the breath. We can’t bring fresh air in without throwing out the bad air first. We all will find our points when we’ll exhale. And that, my friend, is Whitney Houston’s take on gestalt therapy! :-)))) xx

skarab

Shoop Shoop!! xx

South

Wonderful explanation 🙏
Need that prana

Librarius

I don’t feel like I used any of the potential that Saturn-Pluto proximity had going and am unlikely to in the weeks that follow. Wasted a lot of the time that I could have used to stabilise my career (and get my shit together in other ways) on anxiety, insignificant short-term allegedly-creative projects, procrastination, and micro-managing/fretting over a relationship that either is so solid it needs no fretting over, or should have been over months ago (and I STILL can’t decide which because my outlook on it changes daily! Fuq Uranus in the 7th). So not done with 2019

South

Yep
Add one kick arse second Saturn return…and shake fuqing HARD
I am 60, a Crone, and to quote Victor Frankl
“ What is to give light must endure burn”
Ashes, burnt, but have risen as the whole fire…

Damn it read “burning”

You rock! xx

South

Little smug bow 😇
Thank you x

Go Gwen.

I personally LOVED 2019 except for the bs politics, that part sucked. Cheers to everyone to great New Year!

scorpiodawn

yes, i am more than over 2019
thanks for the ‘lessons’
i am a lot stronger, less love zombie
really like 1982…dunno why…my parents divorced…but like the early 80’s music…
