Magical Saturn photo by Hubble space telescope!

Beautiful Saturn is dancing the tightrope at 29 degrees Libra all during Aquarius, still in the same or within one degree trine with Neptune in Aquarius, then in out of sign trine when Neptune enters Pisces!  Though it is VERY close, it never makes the exact aspect because Saturn is slowing to retrograde Feb 7, and Neptune goes on into Pisces Feb 3, leaving Saturn behind.  The exact trine won’t be made until Saturn enters Scorpio in October.

The 29th degree is considered a degree of maturity, finishing, the end, celebration!  It sets the limit, finalizes, makes the foundation for accomplishments in the following sign, in this case, Libra for Scorpio.  Saturn is necessities, work/career, Father, boundaries, Time, priorities, stone, high mountains!  Libra and Scorpio are both signs of relationship – Libra is fair balance, marriage, partnerships of all kinds.  Scorpio is intimacy, sharing of wealths, contributions, corporations.  Relationships need to be well established, respectful, in Libra, before the deeper delvings in Scorpio that require utmost trust.  At this time, Saturn gives Scorpio a good sniff, but stays in Libra (retrogrades), to take care of unfinished business, to further balance responsibilities to each other, oneself, to further consider how to negotiate respectfully, putting yourself in the other person’s place, to realize your part in things.  Saturn shows us how some things are the way they are, don’t waste time trying to change what will not change now, intelligently wait.  And it shows us how to be thankful for small changes that can multiply when kindly and steadily attended.

While Saturn is harmoniously trine Neptune still in Aquarius, additionally, friends, professional associations, community service organizations, are being assessed.  It considers individual contribution, and the contribution to the whole.  It assesses who to work with, for how much, how long, doing what.  If change is in the offing, how to do it, to let go of fears, accept what must be left behind to step to the next level, pay attention to reputable referrals, get a toehold in a new arena.  Do it honor.  Make a mature, secure, and worthy foundation for important things to come.  Neptune is the inspiring dream; Saturn is real, works the connections, gets the job done.

Mercury Direct!

Mercury at station in Aries, getting ready to turn direct, has been in a long opposition with Saturn in airy Libra. It has been in a 3 degrees or less range that started Apr 14, continues until Apr 29! It comes very close, less than ½ a degree of being in exact opposition, when it turns Direct! Mars made its opposition to Saturn on the 18th, tugging reluctant old Saturn along to new adventures. April 19, Mercury conjuncted fiery Mars, ideas in action, and now is chatting them both up, wondering how the new things can be done. Keep the practical working partnerships, add independent new projects and people. Oppositions can stretch things to the limit, sometimes breaking connections that are fragile, spent, not meant, not able. That can be best, a great relief. There may be sadness, and happiness that the dance was tried yet failed. Other times oppositions act practically like a sling shot, propelling us to the furthest amazing reaches, far beyond our ‘normal’ sphere! Life is NEVER the same again, and, perhaps, happily so!!! Let go the too old, and let the new juice up your circuits!

As reality has struck close to home, this opposition has been sobering for some. It is also in a fading formation, a T Square with Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is now 5 degrees behind, but still within range to remind us, have a hangover effect. The two Saturn square Plutos of recent times, Jan 31, 2010 and Aug 21, 2010, were part of the hard economic aspects we have had, for some us quite personal, even indelible in our memory. If it’s broken and can’t be fixed, be wise, put it behind you, move on. If restructuring is called for, get reeducated, get an expert to help you mend matters in a very good way. Make a difference and don’t delay.
