Two very different remedies may bring relief from the blues or grief. Saturn, Capricorn’s ruling planet, is associated with grief, the blues, sadness, and all forms of melancholia. Essential oils are no cure for the real causes of melancholia, but I do believe they can offer some temporary relief. I love aromatherapy inhalers. I have … Continue reading Essential Oils to Beat Back the Saturn and Capricorn Blues
An amenable student.
Beauty (Venus) + youth (Aries) in harmony with wisdom (Sagittarius) + age (Saturn).
Continuing from an earlier post on transiting Saturn conjunctions… If the first part of the film Melancholia is about refusing to compromise (or merge, marry or yoke as with Saturn in Libra), the second half of the film is about no way out. It has a sort of Saturn in Scorpio ring to it, don’t … Continue reading Transiting Saturn Conjunctions ~ Preparing for the Hit
If you watched the movie Melancholia by Lars von Trier and made it through the excruciating wedding scene that makes up the first half of the film, you saw a masterful representation of what transiting Saturn’s approaching conjunction to a natal planet feels like. The premise of the movie is that a planet is on … Continue reading Transiting Saturn Conjunctions ~ Scenes from Melancholia

Saturn can symbolize what we fear, not in the otherworldly spooky way that Pluto does. Saturn can tell us where we feel inadequate, where we haven’t received the training we need to feel at ease in the world, areas where we’re deficient somehow, even where opportunity escapes us. Thinking about Saturn in Libra might bring up … Continue reading How Does Saturn Scare You?

Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past and fear of the future. ~ Fulton Oursler A lot of us can identify with that quote ~ especially as it relates to Saturn’s placement in our charts, natally or by transit.

The much anticipated cardinal T-square of Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus is an event which has many of us puzzled and worried. With these cardinal energies, we can expect times of fast-forward movement, more shocks and changes, and a lot more hard work. What these energies also promise is the opportunity for personal and collective transformation, … Continue reading The Cardinal T-Square of 2010: Saturn, Uranus, Pluto
As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I want to tell you about two good tools that can help us achieve our New Year’s resolutions. They will arm your Saturn with some more ammo, courtesy of his outer planet neighbors Uranus and Neptune. I’ll also have two posts from guest bloggers that will help center you as you welcome in the New Year.
Resolutions and goals take a lot of care and attention. The keywords are dedication, determination, and diligence. They also require being able to see our future selves as successful. And that’s the first tool I want to share with you. A way to access the future you.
We had a little problem with fleas at our house one summer, so I asked the county extension agent about the best way to get rid of them. His response was fast, “First and foremost–diligence.” Fleas are nasty little pests that lay eggs which are programmed to hatch and attack the moment they sense movement. That’s why they can survive in an empty house for years unhatched and hungry. You move in, your movement awakens the sleeping beasts, and you’re a hot nutritious lunch. Treatment can vary, but the absolute requirement is, indeed, diligence. We beat the little B<*&#^!ds and they haven’t been back.
That’s a Saturn attack! It was chock full of diligence, dedication, and determination.
New Year’s resolutions come during Capricorn, the perfect time to set up a lofty goal. Capricorn isn’t a goal setter. It’s the goal meeter, willing to site lofty heights with great intentions and full-follow through. Most of us get a little taste of goal setting at this time of year through our resolutions. The problem is, many of us give in to the Aquarian rebel that follows close on Cap’s heels. We find boredom, another project, or a good revolutionary excuse to drop the diligence. As in, “You can’t make me do that!”
Diligence is the solution that has to be applied to any pest you want to fully eradicate, whether they’re vermin or personal poisons. As we near the New Year, lots of us start making resolutions. Here are some of the top resolutions people make:
I read two wonderful pieces this week about the care of our bodies. The first was from Madeline at Skylight News on the Death Throes of Saturn in Virgo. She says… “Okay okay. So the headlines are scaring the pants off many of us. I recently returned to the health care field and I can … Continue reading Virgo ~ A Sane Approach to Health, via Saturn
2018 is here and we’re all playing the role of Goldilocks as we adjust to the new vibes. Some feel too much, others too little, and some are just right.

The closing of one door and opening of another makes this time of year both joyful and serious. The Capricorn blues can crop up at the oddest times, so keep your chin up and find the bright side even when things seem much too serious. Saturn, Capricorn’s ruling planet, has entered this sign for the … Continue reading First Day of Capricorn, 2017
