The Paris Climate Rally was cancelled after the bombings, so people put their shoes there, including Pope Francis, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon and Marion Cotillard. Saturn is cancellations, Neptune and Pisces are feet and shoes. Walk in my shoes so you will under stand….
August 22 note: Previous aspects brought some sad times for many. At the time of this last aspect September 10, the day after Jupiter enters Libra, we are now in recovery, some with forgiveness in our hearts and determination in our Souls to build a better world. Sometimes to make our dreams come true we have to see the extent of the need. Do your grieving; seek solutions and Libra’s balance. Stay steady in the Light.
June 12, 2016 note: Saturn square Neptune was the primary aspect at the time of the Nov 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, 130 dead 17 days before the Paris climate talks. Now, June 12, 2016, 5 days before the second exact aspect, the Orlando FL mass shooting has happened, 50 dead. The third and final aspect of the set is Sept 10 the day after Jupiter enters Libra. See the Orlando charts and more about this square. Let’s turn the tables on this aspect.
Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces ran seven months in 2015 at two different times, and will a third period in 2016 for 6+ months.
- Allowing a 5 degree range, it started Dec 23, 2014 and ran through April 18.
- The second time, it ran from Oct 15 to Jan 20, 2016, making its first of three exact aspects on Nov 26, ThanksGiving Day, at 7 Sagittarius, the last aspect of 2015!
- In 2016, it runs from April 13 to Oct 31, with second exact aspect June 17 at 12 Sag, and the final aspect Sep 10 at 10 Sag.
That’s a total of 13+ months, a year’s worth plus! When an aspect has a long duration, it’s effect takes time, is fully absorbed, happens by default. It just becomes part of our lives, an unconscious ambiance. We have the time it takes for its successful achievement. It will be in varying degrees, 7, 12, and 10, over those months, so people with factors at or close with those degrees will be affected at different times more and less, the ones at 8-11 the most.
Saturn and Neptune are quite different creatures.
Concrete Saturn‘s joy is to establish boundaries, guard the compound, be the builder, be a Magician of Creation, to apport. Mystical Neptune lets it all go, and can itself, become invisible, undefinable. The ability of dissolution is as powerful as construction. Sometimes removing a long held blockage to a better life, or a tumor twisting our body, is essential to further progress. When we get to carrying too much weight, get exhausted, letting go is a crucial art. This cycle, the talents of building and having, then doing without, unfettered by earthly dross, show us long term true values, what we need, don’t need. We are talented and humbled. Sometimes it is a huge relief finding out we don’t have to work so hard and things will still be ok.
Turning it around, if Spirit/Neptune has been too lazy or frightened, if we think of ourselves as the incapable victim, Saturn can be of great service. Saturn can help us practice getting clean and sober that we may hold a hammer again. Just a few boards and nails can build a shelter where we can live together and support each other to wellness. Saturn understands grief, depression, shame. It can take us by the hand, without judgment and remind us what we could once do or show us how to do what we have never done before. It can clean us up, get us back on track from right where we are at, give a renewed dignity. It may help us have the discipline to take the time to sit in meditation again.
Pisces doesn’t usually have business bones, but Saturn is a rock solid pro! Saturn knows the importance of timing, and will get you connected with an entertainment attorney for your music rights, get you a producer, schedule your art shows, and maybe you need an editor for your movie scripts! Great! More time to live your vision!
Signs Sagittarius and Pisces have a few things in common and some major differences.
Both are spiritually inclined, but in different ways. Sagittarius goes to the big meeting house while Pisces prefers a personal connection through meditation in the solitude of the Ashram, one on one. Sagittarius is exuberantly inspirational, giving hope, faith, confidence. They ‘Tell it on the Mountain,’ or the pulpit or podium! Pisces is often behind the scenes, doing a bit of mop up work with casualties that need personal tender treatment. Each wants the message to go out. When they are blessed to do a huge event together, like a night under the stars with spotlights on the heroes and heroines, it is an event to be remembered! They are both travelers, Sagittarius on the land, nomadic, carrying the stories of all time. Pisces is a Spirit traveler, a visionary, traveling with all Souls in the dreamtime. They bring messages from other realms as well.
Sagittarius admires the learned teacher, reads the good book. Pisces is the etheric artist guided moment by moment, often uninfluenced by what any other Being thinks. Pisces, often dyslexic and left handed, if going to write anything, writes the Word they ‘channel’ from Spirit. Both are truth seekers. Sagittarius, with its keen observations and wide angle lens, can compare and find the flaws against nature. Pisces may seem lost in the glow of a spiritual master, but is so sensitive it intuits when things aren’t just right, or have long been over. They may end up having a following of their own, then be on Sag’s show!
The integration of blundering, sometimes insensitive Saturn, and will o the wisp, hard to nail down Neptune, may not be easy. One quietly runs away while the other tromples. Sigh. Thundering (or so it seems to Neptune) Saturn needs to get down into low gear, at least in the beginning of their connection. Neptune may whimper and whine, but try to stay present and hear the care behind Saturn words before you completely dissolve in a pile of tears, or a vapor trail as you leave. Taking small time-outs is good. Recalibrate. No pulling rank. Not Saturn for its grand achievements, nor Neptune for communing with God him/herself!
Give this reasonable time. April 13 to Oct 31, 2016 we are having another go at changing some long standing premises. Neptune is the Great Mystery, and who dare challenge Spirit itself?! Saturn is in a mere 29 year cycle upstart compared to Neptune’s knowing 168 years! But wisdom seeker Saturn, a Master in his own right, is not known for giving up or being afraid of Goliaths. He has time on his side because he will challenge Neptune every seven+ years. This is technically a checkpoint around the Circle as Saturn, squares, conjuncts, squares, opposes, then repeats the cycle. How are we doing? Make before and after notes.
Allow things to grow, revisions to be made, details to be assimilated. Discard what’s outgrown; get lighter. Let it be rich and deeply aromatic like a fine cuppa. The challenge is worth it. Liz Greene refers to it as the Quest for Redemption. I’m with that.
