Astrology Rituals For Planetary Transits work. They’re best invented by yourself off your instincts and out of your history but here are some thoughts. I was inspired by the email below.
I’ve been loving the recent posts on the Full Moon rituals and was thinking, is it apt to mark major transits with fitting planet-aligned rituals?
I¹m a Cap rising and Saturn will soon be conjunct my Ascendant
So I¹m wondering if I should buy a new watch or all black outfit. Alternatively, I could plant some hardy oak tree or open a new bank account?
There must be more creative ideas but I¹m too busy with my fourteen lists and green smoothie treadmill campaign to think of any new ones right now.
Any suggestions welcome!
Astrology Rituals For Planetary Transits
I was just saying to someone in a consult that Saturn across the ascendant used to be called ‘the hag transit.’ You look amazing because of all the kettlebell juggling and sleep being your new power-thrill but your consciousness is like a 1000 years old.
But yes, your concept of a ritual for transits is absolutely apt. In Renaissance times, people were constantly decorating their homes to work with different celestial influences, with one good example being here.
The House Witching Mp3 has some cool concepts for space-clearing and setting the scene. But your concepts for honoring Saturn over your Ascendant are brilliant! I
But in terms of an actual ritual to mark transits, Saturn works well with metal. I would save the tree planting for Uranus in Taurus, consider an all dark grey metallic outfit rather than black (Black = Water) and if you’re feeling ‘watch’ then a metal timepiece is utterly Saturn.
There IS actually a watch called Saturn, no numbers, with the time being kind of cryptic. Thoughts? I think Saturn needs numbers to crunch.
The Best Planetary Rituals Are Simple
Whether it’s Saturn, Pluto, Neptune or Uranus – any significant transits can work well with an overt acknowledgment of that energy being more present.
Another idea is to work out your ruling planet – the ruler of the Ascendant – and have that symbol or something representing it as a tattoo, artwork or piece of jewelry.
In your case, Saturn rules, so whatever honoring you do will be triple-significant.
If you’re having a Pluto transit, that is the sort of astro-trip that benefits from power-purging and burning off old assumptions/resentments. Listen to the Pluto Transit Hypnosis Mp3 to go deeper with this if you desire. But my fave Pluto transit ritual is simple: A cleared house or room with a circle of salt around you and across the threshold.
You write a letter to your past/people from then, making it as frank as you need. I once began one with Dear Fuq-Face.
You don’t need to be new age about it. Read it aloud and burn it in a candle. You can add onto it if you want but this works.
Then flush the ashes down the toilet. Shower with a salt scrub and sage the house. You feel the energy shift immediately but wait 24 hours and situations around you evolve.
