Are Saturn accessories or body art astrologically advised? If Saturn hired an influencer, he could do no better than Adele. Thanks to her ‘endorsement,’ literally millions of people with scant interest in astrology are now Saturn Return aware. There was the Saturn tatt to commemorate the occasion and more recently, Schiaparelli Saturn earrings.
Adele’s Saturnine statement is not the first celebrity embrace of the Time God: Kesha got her Saturn Return ink in 2015 and Miley Cyrus popped up with a Saturn tatt a year later. It was apparently a mistake, she’d wanted Jupiter, a far more appropriate choice for her exuberant multi-Saggo personality. But Adele’s Saturn syndrome is the most talked about and no doubt tattoo artists all over the world are receiving requests for similar work. Saturn is already more depicted than other planets – it’s the chic rings, for sure.
But guess what? Saturn is not necessarily the astrological influence you want permanently etched into your skin. Obviously Adele – or anyone – can put whatever they want on their body but traditionally, people would seek talismans to balance the influence of Saturn. They’d use Sun, Venus or Jupiter imagery to offset it – gold, roses, a rising Sun, sigils that translated to ‘Saturn thank you for the lessons but don’t stay‘ and/or the element most likely to minimize the effects of the current Saturn element.
A Tattoo Is Like A Spell
A tattoo is like a spell – a visual depiction of that planetary energy, the moment and all of its associations. Saturn has benefits but cosmic goals wise, there are easier energies to have emblazoned onto your bod. Having said that, the image of the planet is less potent then the symbol or one of the funky magical glyphs for it.
If you are getting a tattoo, try to time it so that the first ‘breaking of the skin’ takes place at an astrologically appropriate time – it’s fiddly to work out and to organize but incredibly potent if you can manage it. As an example, I only have one tattoo but I am considering getting another for the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction next April: It’s ultra rare and beneficial. Given the nature of those two, the only way I’ll know what image to get will be via dream messaging.
Adele Is More Jupiter Than Saturn
From the outside, Jupiter and Uranus have been far more significant players in Adele’s last few years. Her Saturn Return was exact in January and then Aug/Sept of 2018. It was in the 6th house – think health, digestion, and the inability to skid along on natural oomph. When Saturn transits the 6th – Return or no Return – basic health rules do apply to you. And, it was opposing her Cancerian Ascendant – Saturn’s gloom-specked mirror is never flattering.
Saturn then hung out in her 7th house for the last three years – I’ve said this before but it is a phase when you reassess all relationships with a sentiment-free objectivity, like an engineer appraising the structural supports of a bridge. She reconciled with her alcoholic father in this phase and possibly then realized that certain people in her life were not up for an Adele with extra psychic gravity or complex emotions that were not about them.
But 2018-2020 also saw Jupiter crossing her natal Moon, Uranus, Saturn, and Neptune line-up – Adele is a definitive Jupiter woman. She has the Sun conjunct Jupiter in Taurus, amped by Mars + Pluto, ruling her Saggo Moon. You can see it in her wide-beam aura and the way she inhabits her celebrity with such gracious ease. She’s expansive.
At the same time, Uranus – en route to her Sun-Jupiter conjunction – was activating her Lilith in Leo, Saggo Moon, and then her Ascendant, natal Uranus, Saturn + Neptune. This would have manifested as a practically seismic urge toward more space and freedom. Not everyone can channel such intensity but she is a lightning rod of a woman.
