I read parts of a book MageMother by Austin Bailey. It talks about the tests that a character in the book had to go through to prove herself worthy and trustable. The tests revolve around the character’s deepest fears. Reading those few pages reminded me of Saturn transits and progressions, especially hard ones. We encounter and are asked to confront our fears. It’s like a … Continue reading Saturn Transits and Progressions
I didn’t catch on to mythology, especially Liz Greene’s prolific use of myths in her books, when it comes to learning astrology. However, I was thoroughly impressed when I read that the Romans called Saturn Saturnus, known as the god of agriculture and harvest who founded civilization and the social order. The great feasts of Saturnalia is held annually in the winter. Continue reading “Saturn is About Celebrations!”
七転び八起き / nanakorobi yaoki Fall down seven times, get up 8 times Daruma, a Japanese Doll, that’s associated with perseverance and never giving up. The tradition is set yourself a goal or resolution and draw in the left eye as a reminder of what you want to achieve.

Pluto Another increase in my astrological vocabulary for Pluto – a profound experience, “transformative” instead of simply “transformation”. Saturn Commitment, committed to xyz, demands, demanding. Instead of “focused”, try “Concerned with” Intense (hmmm, I have always associated Pluto with intensity. But I suppose with Saturn’s laser focus on things, it could certainly be described as intense) Strong attention to Take control. Undertake an inventory. Feel … Continue reading Astro Vocabulary
I thought there wasn’t anything significant during my Saturn return (c. 29.5 years old). In fact, I thought about it for 2 or 3 years over the past few years. That was until recently when I looked at the ephemeris, instead of the nice looking reports from Solar Fire. Continue reading “Saturn Return”
An exploratory post on Saturn cycles. Questions to be answered:
- What’s Saturn cycles?
- Why might they be felt more keenly than other cycles?
- What are the ages involved in Saturn cycles?
- What’s the difference between Saturn return, opposition, squares, sextiles and trines? What’s the difference between a waxing and a waning aspect?
- What’s the difference between the first, second and third Saturn cycles?
- What’s likely to “happen” internally and/or externally during Saturn cycles?
- How to make the best of Saturn cycles?
I did an informal study, to use the term extremely loosely, recently. The study was to determine whether people go through a tough time when Saturn is transiting their Sun sign. Continue reading “Saturn Transiting in Sun Sign”
Transiting Saturn conjunct natal Mars in 4th. The person with this transit works from home and can’t get much work done at work. She’s suffocating at home. She wonders whether to rent an office space. Thankfully, her transit has ended. Continue reading “Managing Transits”
What is the Principle of Saturn? Saturn limits and restricts. Where Does a Person Experience Saturn? Depending on your perspective, life may exist on various planes. One way of dividing life is into these four planes and the corresponding dimension of a human being: Physical plane – our physical body Astral – our feelings and emotions Mental – our mind Spiritual – our intuition This … Continue reading A Look at Saturn
I have realized over time that persons with a high emphasis on the Capricorn sign or a strongly featured Saturn are rather responsible people. They try to do what is right by their perceived expectations of their partner, family, friends, work colleagues, bosses, community and society. So much so that often times, they might forget to look after their own needs and desires as it’s always about the other person or their actions are based on the “correct” thing to do.
