We had this aspect the first time October 10, 2012, at 0 Scorpio, 5 days after Saturn entered Scorpio. Allowing a 5 degree range, this second aspect has been in effect since April 10. This middle one, is JUNE 11, at 5 Scorpio. Starting June 2, this aspect will be in what’s called Station, while Saturn turns Direct (forward), in a continuous LESS THAN ONE DEGREE effect until the last one, July 19, at 4 Sc 55!
Saturn trine Neptune won’t get a lot of press. It isn’t a hard challenge aspect, both planets are more quiet by nature, and in quiet signs. Saturn, a hard worker, loves solitude when they can get it, remote mountains, even ice climbing! Neptune, lover of thriving ocean and seaside industries, music, and saviors of whoever needs it, is also dreamer and can take silence and service in the ashram for years. Put Saturn and Neptune together and a lot will get done, or nothing at all, nothing visible, that is.
Saturn the problem solver, combined with Neptune’s dream that needs to come true, finally, may be in perfect timing for getting the support promised long ago. There may be a charismatic karmic replenishing, a gathering of materials. Sources may come forward anonymously, affirming a go on what was feared lost. Waiting can be a virtue. Old karmic patterns may be released, the voodoo spell is broken, the new order is revealed. The tipping point has been reached; this Project has a life of its own! It may be a quiet project, but profound.
If you have been leading a dedicated life, are in burnout, it’s time for a rest. Paradoxically, rest can be hard work too! It requires self discipline to take time out from responsibilities that have become a habitual pattern. You may need to get some aromatherapy, sit in sauna, float in the pool, get many massages. Sleeping is good, especially on the cruise ship deck lounger in the middle of nowhere. Wear a sarong. Go naked! Slow your breathing, take deep breaths and sigh them out. Take a trip with no itinerary and no due date home.
If you have been a slacker, you know what you have to do. But do it with finesse. Do it because it is right for you, because it calls you. If you aren’t sure what to do, try some new things, let them lead you on….
On a daily basis, Saturn in Scorpio minds its funding and can work in money industries. Industries involving elders, real estate, construction, corporate law, privacy, police, security, medical research, various therapies, will be streamlined. Less time, fewer materials and staff needed, frees resources for additional projects. New partners will be well tested for trustworthiness, needing to prove themselves over time. Relationships will be scrutinized, reaffirmed if they pass muster. The cause of sensitive health issues will be sought, for cures and prevention of recurrence.
Neptune in Pisces is so intuitive! There is no getting away from what isn’t working. It’s tune-up time. If you’re not sure, wavering, likely the answer is simply no. Be with it, it will become clear. Your inner self has just gotten there first; your mind is catching up. Neptune is a very refined, even etheric, component. Saturn rules stone and 4 X 4s, what’s real and, bam, gets the job done! You stand Saturn in front of a job and they do it. Neptune can save a lot of time by eliminating jobs that have no place on the agenda, no matter how seductive it is to merely work for work’s sake, to prove your prowess. Neptune puts the work smart component into place.
So, though quiet, this aspect is a jewel in the spiritual crown. We learn to balance work and rest, work potently, intuition an efficient, though invisible, tool in the toolbox.
