When I worked from home last year, I stationed myself at the dining table, which falls on the Saturn line in my relocated local space chart. I was rather productive. I subsequently moved back to my study desk in the bedroom. I say I was mostly productive once I settled into the rhythm. The desk falls on the Sun or North Node line – I … Continue reading Local Space Charts – Saturn Line

The tests revolve around the character’s deepest fears. Reading those few pages reminded me of Saturn transits and progressions, especially hard ones.

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:

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”
