Now, since 5 days ago and until June 17, 2015, Saturn has entered Sagittarius, something that hasn’t done since nearly 30 years ago, in 1985-87. If you were alive in those years, what was going on in your life then? On 17 June, Saturn will dep back into the last degrees of Scorpio, as if to complete this stage of affairs we have experiencing for the past 3 years, until 17 September 2015, when it returns to Sagittarius, this time to stay until December 19, 2017. It will station retrograde on March 14, the same day the Urano-Pluto square finally make their last exact contact at about 15 ° of Aries-Capricornio respectively. Thus begins a period that in some way we are already experiencing in a way, as we are seeing in what happens in Argentina, with the judges ( Saturn in Sagittarius), who are investigating the President and his children, for illegal enrichment, and in the United States, with what happened in Ferguson and New York, where judges have acquitted white police officers of murder for abuse of power or fear, when they killed unarmed African American youth, something it has happened many times in the past, but that now inspire a popular reaction, as if something inside thecollective says: “ok enough is enough!”.
Sagittarius introduces us to philosophy, higher education, young people, the judicial system, long distance trips, distant cultures, the search for the truth above all, Nature, our ideals, the pursuit of what we call God, not to join it or be part of, as it happens in PISCES, through Neptune, but to know it and understand it and expand our minds to something bigger than our everyday experience. Ruled by Jupiter, as well as PISCES, the largest planet in our solar system, is the experience of everything mentioned above and with the subsequent discovery of Saturn who comes to put some limits to that expansion. Jupiter takes us out of the neighborhood, to look in other realms, in other cultures, a different human experience, to enrich us with its diversity.
Saturn entering this sign, will confront us with all the irregularities in these fields, and we will be encouraged to deal with situations that aren’t working propperly within the sectors mentioned. Aviation will be affected, and investigations intothe recent air disasters, will produce some kind of results, at least,with the airlines having to takeresponsibility for their mistakes and wrong decisions, as is the case with theMA17 flight, that was shot down across Ukraine from the Malaysia Airlines and theprevious disappearance of another flight of the same company, the now famous MA370. As i am translating this piece, an Airasia jet has gone missing in Indonesia, yet again. Saturn brings results so it is possible that the mystery of these disappearances will bring some kind of results.
But we also confronted with the reality that despite the fact that Neptune tells us that all we are ONE, is also true we all have different path and truths to find and live, indispensable to complete the human experience and we must respect the fact that others have different philosophies of life and values to develop. ISIS and our fight against Muslim fundamentalism is another theme that Saturn in Sagittarius is putting on our plate. Both Isis and the rest of us, must learn to accept and respect other people’s ideals. Fundamentalists cannot continue thinking that Western ideals are malignant, or Westerners must do the same about Muslims. We will have to find a middle point, where we can learn to live with true commitment and respect for the other.
For those born with the conjunction of these two planets in Libra in the years1951-53, they will have a great opportunity to understand the dilemma Neptuno-Saturno and the tension caused by this square in their lives, perhaps find a way as individual or give birth to a creative project, or a part of their being, dwelling in the waters of the unconscious, without the possibility of emerging to consciousness until Now.
On the subject of relationships, the ability to differentiate between the “falling in love” and the true relationship, between the illusion of the union with the goddess or God through another human being and the daily, patient work with each other, to build an authentic relationships based on the acceptance of each other in all their human dimensions.
In the second part of this article, I will expand more on the different aspects that Saturn will make in its journey through Sagittarius and how it will affect the different signs. For now, the fire signs, Leo and Aries, begin an extraordinary period of construction of a new way of organizing their lives, their finances and their profession, and for the mutable signs on the other hand: Gemminis, Virgo and Pisces, and of course, Sagittarius, will begin a period of 3 years of much personal growth, with opportunities to correct past decisions that were probably taking without thinking of the full consequence of it and also restructure an aspect of their lives that will take them to grow both personally and professionally. Time to build, restructure and perhaps take care of others, sometimes against our own will. Even so, the learning will be deep and enriching for everyone.
