Mars in the 3rd house 

Published January 8, 2017 by starsmoonandsun

Where Mars is placed in the natal chart is where we exert a lot of energy it can also be where we experience conflict.Mars is the God of War it rules young men in the military, it is associated with sex, aggression and action. 

Today I held the door for someone in my building that was carrying a lot of stuff and she snapped at me “I don’t need you to hold the door for me” and I replied calmly “no problem next time I will let it slam right it your face” and as I got into my car I thought about all the conflicts I have had with my neighbors in a period of 2 years. I want you to understand I’m rarely home I’m always at work I do not have parties I hardly even watch tv I am not in anyone’s business I do not care what other people do. Yet I had one woman call security on me for being over my line in my parking space I wasn’t in her space I was actually on the line. Security was banging on my door while I was at home sick to repark my car -she must be a Virgo- another time I was putting my wash into the dryer when a woman clawed me she physically attacked me because she wanted my dryer- even though her wash was not done. This was on the day of an eclipse to my moon (ruler of home) she actually made me bleed. 

The 3rd house rules your mode of transportation (I drive fast) it rules communication (I’m blunt and honest) it rules mental facilities (my mind never shuts off I sort out problems in my sleep) it rules mobility (I have been told when I walk by I’m so fast people feel a breeze) The 3rd house rules writing and communication (Clearly i put a lot of energy into blogging tweeting etc) and the 3rd house also rules neighbors so it’s not uncommon to have disputes with neighbors. I wouldn’t let them run me out of town; I will sit at my pool, work out in my gym, enjoy my parking space and 24 hour security and if they don’t like me that is their issue not mine. I will refrain from holding the door, make sure I park with in my lines, do wash late at night when everyone is asleep and when I m confronted by some nasty ill mannered bitter Betty I will smile and say go fuck yourself 

Venus in Solar Return 12th House 

Published December 30, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Today I tweeted I feel like I’m having a Neptune Venus transit but I’m not. When Neptune transits Venus in hard aspect we can lose touch with reality, we lose ourself in love, we believe in things ; in people blindly we seek transcendental love we believe we have met our soulmate.

As I was driving to work I realized I had Venus in my Solar Return 12th house this is similar to a Venus/Neptune transit

When I first saw this I thought wow am I going to have an affair this year? What secret relationship am I going to engage in. When people come to me for readings and they have this aspect (the majority of my clients are married) it is with 90% certainty they are having an affair.
I’m half way through my solar Return and let me just say this is the year of not seeing men clearly. It would take a lot for me to fall in love Romantiscim is my thing but delusion isn’t.
The solar Return 12th house (home to secrets and self undoing) has Venus (planet of love) on my natal 6th house (work) perhaps I meet men at work that are the cause of my own self undoing. Perhaps I met a man at work I didn’t see clearly. Sometimes astrology is that literal
I love it when it is.

I see the soul of you

I know the whole of you

That’s the kind of day dreamy feelings that enveloped me
He is a player I was told and I laughed no he isn’t.  It’s still hard to believe that he is. I take full ownership of this situation afterall I never asked. I never asked if he had a harem of women. I never asked anything. That’s Neptune you don’t ask you just believe you already know
He was Neptunian in every sense of the word.
I don’t want to make this post sound as if I’m broken hearted it wasn’t that deep it was just a sort of light disappointment.  My deepest wound came when I had Saturn conjunct moon in the solar Return 5th house. Nothing will ever hurt like that.
Dissapointment :That’s the hallmark of Neptune in relationships in love that’s the staple the dream never meets reality.
Just wanted to caution those of you with Neptune in the 12th of your solar Return it’s the secret lover, the love that causes your own self undoing, the lover you see through rose colored glasses, the Pisces lover, the alcoholic lover, the married lover, the fantasy lover that can’t breathe a breath in the reality of your life lover.

You can not make some travel on a path of self discovery if their soul isnt ready to leave where they are

Published December 28, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I have been drawn to men draped in melancholy for quite some time I am beginning to think this has to do with my Saturn in the 7th house this isn’t exactly attracting the most joyous of partners  This placement often indicates marrying an older and colder partner. Ah it is what it is I suppose they can be older and they certainly do not have to be light but as of 2017 they will need to be happy.

You think that you can save them, you think that you can show them, you think that you can heal them but it never works that way.

I am telling you on your lengthy lists of what you seek in a partner you better put on the top of the list

  1. Happy
  2. Healthy

My Plutonic love-who this blog is written in dedication too- was heavy, depressed, his energy was thick. I would spend one night with him and sleep for days afterward. We were connected by etheric cords from navel chakra to navel chakra. He would drain me of my life force, that’s how we were connected. I was his source of power, maybe his source of light .img_1497img_1496img_1494 This is a man that has anything and everything you could possibly desire but he was perpetually sad. He has Sun Square Saturn and Chiron loosely conjunct his Sun and Mercury.

Saturn in aspect to planets will restrict and suppress the planets natural expression. Sun/Saturn often represents a father issue, perhaps inheriting paternal depression; other people have an absent father (Suri Cruise) or a general feeling of not being able to live up to the father.The identity (the Sun) is restricted. This placement is often found in millionaires as they use accomplishment and work (Saturn) to fill themselves (sun). Chiron on the Sun indicates a core wounding with in the sense of self. The sun is your identity, your self-expression, so here there may be a wound surrounding your sense of self. Not feeling good enough, you may feel like a part of you in missing, you may feel empty –Clearly these being the harsher manifestations

I also dated a crazy Gemini,  he was Saturian as well with his natal Moon placed in Capricorn this is common in people who are depressed and often found in alcoholics He had many addictions from gambling to cocaine but he will forever be one of my favorite people in the world. For all of his bad habits he was honest about all of them and never professed to be anything other than who he was.

Though I will say addiction is NOT who you are it is something you do that covers up who you are, that drowns out the voice of who you are. Addiction will fill you with lies about who you are but I will save that post for another day.

He also had Venus conjunct Saturn; blocks to love, suppressed feelings of love, past hurts that are difficult to get beyond in matters  of the heart.And as of late- the man who will culminate this lesson for me since I didn’t get it the first 10 times…well he is a Capricorn rising (Chart ruler is Saturn) I will tell you when I first saw him I thought well isn’t this a beautiful creature ( His Neptune opposes my Mars and Venus) he looked like a man that was oblivious to how beautiful he was (Natal Chiron square Ascendant exact, this shows a wound surrounding the way you look ) I remember thinking this man looks like he forgot the real meaning of life. He looks like he forgot what love feels like (he has Natal Saturn opposite Venus, blocks to love, chooses work over love, being closed to love). It never occurred to me that maybe he didn’t want to know what love was, maybe he didnt want to remember. Maybe he prefered it this way, life this way. Maybe thats why he keeps a door of revolving women, if you keep the rotation going you dont have to worry about anyone getting too close.

“When you have lived in a dungeon for a very long time the light when you see it can actually hurt your eyes” ~Marianne Williamson

That is Saturn in the 7th house attracting men with planets placed in Capricorn, planets in hard aspect to Saturn men that are blocked in some manner, men that think accomplishment is the gateway to self-love. Surprise it isn’t! No amount of accolades, money, or outer work will compensate for a lack of inner work

“You and I both know that we have shadow sides. We have edges my darling resistances to love” ~Marianne Williamson (She has Capricorn moon might I add and Sun square Saturn)

“A ring of fear surrounds love like rings around Saturn” ~Marianne Williamson

Even my crazy partying Gemini ran his own company work hard play hard was the motto.

I thought perhaps every time  that I could show them there is more to life, you think you can tell them life holds more beauty then 7 figures sitting in a bank account. I want to shout none of this shit matters !!!! But they don’t hear me. You can show someone the path but you can not make them travel it.


Richard Burton put it best when he said “we operate on alien wave-lengths. You are as distant as Venus–planet, I mean–and I am tone-deaf to the music of the spheres”

Maybe my Gemini listened more so then the others, he had Aquarius rising so he was evolved he use to tell me I think you know things no one else does. I was deeply honored

With this Capricorn Rising and my crazy Gemini My Moon conjunct their natal Chiron I don’t know if I possessed a conscious need to heal them. Chiron is where you carry your deepest wound accordingly to cafeastrology.com “Chiron represents insecurity, where we feel an endless need to prove ourselves”

I do not have a heavy Saturn or  Chiron in my natal chart I have Chiron hanging out in my 2nd house …we all have Chiron some place it opposes my Uranus in the 8th I read that those of us that have Uranus opposite Chiron “reiki, acupuncture, therapy are some examples of the subtle energy healing techniques that may be apart of your wounding, healing journey”

It was this Capricorn rising that inspired me to  get more involved in Reiki healing I am going for my certification at the beginning of 2017. I had touched him lightly in his stomach area and felt this wound, it was open, it was like I stuck my hand into another dimension and I quickly pulled it out.

It is said in synastry the moon person can heal and nurture the chiron person. I read on yahoo answers “when your moon conjuncts his chiron you possess the innate and uncanny ability to see through his facade and literally feel his pain”

Some people prefer to live behind a mask, some people prefer we don’t see the Wizard of Oz man behind the curtain. On some level they  enjoy their man made prisons it feels safer living with in them.

It takes alot to live your most authentic life, this personal path of endless self analysis that those of us are on isn’t easy. And yes we may meet people who have lost sight of who they are, and we may encounter people that forgot the beauty in love, and sometimes I think we- those of us in the metaphysical field- feel: I see the soul of you I know the whole of you… but you can not remind people who they are when they would rather forget. And you can not heal anyone that doesn’t want to heal. You can not make some travel on a path of self discovery if their soul isnt ready to leave where they are. It simply doesnt work this way. And while this saddens me I know I am living authentically I have gone to war with my wounds I am healed I am present and ready for great love and in the words of Nayyirah Waheed “You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready”

 

Ruler of the 1st in the 12th house; Edward Snowden and Julian Assange

Published December 27, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

snowden-assange

I am not comparing these men to one another I am comparing birth charts***

I watched the movie Snowden last night I confess I really didn’t know much about him.  I am not sure how I felt after the movie….let me retract that I know exactly how I felt:  I think if you take a job working for the CIA you take all the shady shit that comes with it. The Government is dirty business and to think otherwise I suppose either made him naive or just very idealistic. Naturally I ran his natal chart along side with Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning who happened to pop up (we do not have a birth time for Manning Assange Birth time is questionable) on an astrological article on whistle blowers. I thought it was interesting that they all have Natal Moon in Scorpio; planets in Scorpio are known for secrecy and hidden agendas, they never reveal their feelings or show their hand. They are known for their investigative practices and natural inclination to distrust others.

Donna Cunningham writes in her book “The Moon in Your Life” about the Scorpio moon individual “the world is out to get you -never let yourself be weak, never lose your cool,  always be on top of any situation”

Scorpio moon loves holding all the cards, having all the information. I was raised by a Scorpio moon the mantra was never let them see you cry and never write anything down you wouldnt want anyone else to read.

But what struck me the most was that both Snowden and Assange have the ruler of the 1st in the 12th house (if the birth time on these charts are indeed correct) Rulerships are often overlooked in astrology and yet they are very important.

 img_1463

A house is never empty in astrology, you always have a sign on the cusp so while I have no planets in my first house Aquarius is rising this means Uranus is the ruler of my 1st house this is also known as my chart ruler Uranus is placed in my 8th house so I embody a Pluto/Scorpio like energy since the 8th house governs; sex, death and taxes. I always feel like parts of me are dying and I am continuously being reborn. This house also governs “occult” and here I am no explanation needed 

img_1460

Sometimes we have many chart rulers I for instance have Pisces intercepted so Neptune is also my chart ruler as is Jupiter (traditional ruler of Pisces)  and Saturn since Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius

So all in all I have 4 chart rulers

  1. Jupiter
  2. Neptune
  3. Uranus
  4. Saturn

My Astrologer said this adds to a more complicated personality, I certainly cannot disagree though personally I mostly identify with Uranus in the 8th and Neptune in the 10th

You can do this with all of the houses for instance Cancer rules my 6th house this house governs work, your day to day activities with Cancer as the ruler you can assume I work nights (the moon) I work with the public (moon rules the public) It is hard for me to establish a routine (Moon fluctuates daily)  to look further into this we can see where the ruler of Cancer (the moon); is placed; the moon is placed in my 2nd house the 2nd house rules the money you earn I assure you I only work for the money. I have no attachment to my job other than that. I do not derive any sense of identify from my job like other people do it is simply a means to an end.

Here are some cheat sheets for houses and rulerships


I wrote about Paris Jackson here who is 12th house heavy ( as another variation of 12th house Neptunian energy)

Paris Jackson Natal Chart

And I wrote about the heavy Neptunian influenced now deceased Google Exec Forrest Hayes Here

Kiss of Death & Google Exec

I tend to concentrate on the shadow aspects that come with 12th house/Pisces/Neptune energy they govern addictions, fantasy, illusion and what you don’t see clearly

Venus in the 12th, -secret affairs

Moon in the 12th-Mother with addiction or it could be a mother that died young

Sun in the 12th house can be an unknown father or men may be the cause of your own undoing

Anything Neptunian/Pisces/ 12th house I always caution the person about self undoing behaviors, about addiction, about mental illness because these are the shadow sides of planets placed here  but I also know a Psychiatrist with planets in the 12th house that works in a prison. Astrology isn’t one stop shopping so the influence of the placement may vary-

Also please do remember you have your entire life to live out the natal chart! You may not be an addict today  but can you say you will never be  one? You may not have an affair now but you never know where you will be 15 years from now

Edward Snowden and Julian Assange

The first thing I noticed when looking at Edward Snowden and Julian Assange chart was that they both have the ruler of the 1st (the chart ruler) placed in the 12th house.

Snowden’s chart ruler is Mercury and Assange is Jupiter and they are both placed in the 12th house the 12th house is naturally ruled by Pisces. The 12th house governs Psychiatric facilities, self undoing, prisons, the afterlife, solitude, secret societies and what you don’t see.

When the ruler of the 1st is placed in the 12th you can work in secret. Assage and Snowden also have Neptune in hard aspect to personal planets as did Forrest Hayes (see article above) when you are not an addict, when you are not a musician or an artist, a psychiatrist, an inmate, you very well can work in secret and behind the scenes. The 12th house also rules secret organizations, things that are done in private, things done behind the scenes, underground movements etc

With Mercury being Snowdens ruling planet in the 12th and Mercury being the messsanger (his Merucry is also in sign of rulership Gemini)  Snowdens leaks were Mercurial in nature; secret communications, text messages, emails, phone calls etc

Where as Julian Assange ruling planet is Jupiter that placed in the 12th house Jupiter governs publishing and clearly he has Wikileakes where he publishes (Jupiter) private or secret (12th house) information. Assange according to Wikipedia worked with a secret hacking group or began one.

The 12th house also governs self sacrifice I will say that with the ruler of the 1st being placed in the 12th you may be willing to sacrifice yourself for a greater cause.

My astrology instructor once told me “Aquarius will fight for the cause but Pisces will die for the cause”

I have to believe that Snowden and Assange must have felt called to do what they have done on a higher level, perhaps on a soul level. That’s Pisces/Neptune/12th house too

8 of Cups & 3 Of Swords RX Move on and Leave the pain behind you

Published December 19, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I did a reading for myself today that resonated with me on a soul level

I have started to study tarot more in depth lately and am eager to offer more tarot readings on my Etsy shop sometime in February.

These metaphysical  studies seem to take on a mind of their own you learn astrology next you go to tarot and Reiki and crystal healing and on and on and on I suppose that is the natural evolution; you grow and expand.

The way I started reading angel cards came to me during a mediation session, give angel readings I was instructed. I didn’t even know what angel readings were.

I actually received my first tarot deck when I was about 15 I still have it The metaphysical always interested me now I am just studying with more dedication

This morning I consulted tarot and asked two questions

What do I need?

8 of Cups was the card I pulled

8-of-cups-tarot

This is always a clear indication: Move on

You need to move on, period. 8 of cups indicates the need to sober up.  The word sober to me isn’t just about abstaining from alcohol it’s also being of a sober mind and having clarity.

The 8 of cups is indicating that you are leaving something or someone behind that is NOT emotionally fulfilling and walking toward something greater something that offers the promise of emotional fulfillment. This isn’t a happy card, it is with a quiet resignation we carry on but nevertheless we must. You can see the person is hunched over even the crescent moon is adorned with a sad face but just as the moon goes through phases so do we and once again we will find ourselves full. That is the  message in the 8 of cups.

The 7 of cups (the preceding card) offered the dreams, the illusion and escape I wrote about that card here 7 of Cups and Neptune in Synastry

7-of-cups

But they didn’t quite live up to the promise or allure they projected. The 7 of cups in Thoth is called Debauch it represents yes the excess of sensual pleasures as well as drinking and eating. According to Dictionary.com Debauch also means to “seduce” and that’s what the 7 of cups does it lures you in, it says look at all I have to offer.

And after we feast and dreamt and drank we arrive at the 8 of cups which is sometimes called the morning after Diane Ross Love Hangover comes to mind. At the 8 we are faced with a sober mind the realization the dream couldn’t manifest into reality so we must move on.

And we journey toward the 9 of cups Lord of Happiness (according to thoth)

9-of-cups

We must master the lesson that happiness can only be found within ourselves –that is what the lone man signifies to me at least when well dignified- We must give up our illusions and not put our hopes in false prophets (7 of Cups) so to say. And after we have mastered the love of self we can go on to the 10 of cups which symbolizes happiness with others.

10 of cups.jpg

What do I need I received the 8 of cups

What should I do? I received the 3 of swords reversed these are the 2 saddest cards in my opinion combined with 5 of cups ( God I never want to see that; Lord of Disappointment)

Three of Swords is called the Lord of Sorrow

A quote came to mind looking at this in the reverse “let the dead leaves drop”

Let the swords fall; let the pain go, let yourself heal

It signifies you took the hit, you felt the pain and now you must let it go. Let the swords fall, let the healing take place

3-of-swords

3 of swords reversed can also indicate a need to stop replaying the pain over and over again in our mind. “To heal a wound we must stop touching it” Often people hurt us once but we make a choice to relive that sorrow again and again. We need to gain control of our mind of our thoughts, stop reliving past hurts “let the dead leaves drop” “stop watering dead plants”

I encourage everyone to have the courage to let go of attachments that are unhealthy and not emotionally satisfying. Walk in faith 8 of cups style towards a fuller more satisfying future and leave the sorrow of the 3 of swords behind. I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Iyanla Vanzant iyanla-vanzant

 

Saturn Opposite Jupiter Transit; A Crisis of Faith 

Published December 19, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Perhaps I should have called my first post on Saturn opposite Jupiter transit “a crisis of faith” that’s what it is really and the closer the orb gets the greater the crisis will be I imagine. Make it till January Danielle that’s all you have to do I tell myself while some days I am so lethargic and want to cry a lot!

I can be a runner in some ways but I have decided to face my shit so I’m not carrying it with me into following years. When sad in typical Cancer fashion I stay home call out sick for a week and nurse my wounds. This time I have decided to confront my wounds head on. Only then Can you heal them

Jupiter governs the 9th house in astrology home to religion, beliefs, politics when Saturn is in hard aspect to Jupiter via transit your beliefs come into question. I have found people have been talking to me about “God” more so than ever before I was checking in a guest and he asked me if there was a god a colleague of mine wanted to know why people post pray for Syria what does that mean if god existed would this be happening ? I don’t believe in god not in the sense that one man is in the clouds dictating our lives. I have never believed in God like that my guest called me a Humanist when I explained this to him. I shy away from labels generally speaking. How very Aquarius rising of me
I encountered an issue recently that set me back financially and a disappointment in my love life that was harsh. Disappointment can be debilitating to me I am often naturally so hopeful. Disappointments in love are not an anomaly I have Saturn in the 7th house it sort of comes with the territory. This year numerologicaly (universally) has been a nine year it is said it is the end of a cycle and I can see a montage of bad relationships choices laid out in front of me. The culmination of bad choices I refuse to carry with me into 2017! I refuse.

Stop putting Hope in false prophets may be another Saturn opposite Jupiter catch phrase . “I release the pattern within my consciousness that created this condition” is one of my daily Louise Hay Affirmations I’m forever drawn to melancholic men that wear sadness like a cloak. The next one has to be happy I tell myself that should be the #1 criteria You can’t save anyone shit sometimes you can even love them, they won’t let you.

“when you have lived in a Dungeon for a very long time the light when you see it can actually hurt your eyes” – Marianne Williamson

So here is Saturn calling me on my Jupiterian beliefs I believe in Law of Attraction I believe in working with the cycles of your life I love Eckhart Tolle and Abraham Hicks I believe (such a Jupiter word) in those teachings so now it’s time to find practical application for them (Saturn) I have a social media account that’s compromised of astrology but also of spiritual contexts I can tweet Louise Hay all day but if I’m not living it well that’s just bullshit. You aren’t what you say you will do….you are what you do. (Ah a major 2016 lesson) so it’s time to get real (Saturn) about my spirituality (Jupiter) it’s time to go to work on it. It’s time to wake up and go balls to the wall with my faith. Transcend my own man made prison, change my subconscious limiting beliefs, not crumble in the face of dissapointment and truly believe that “everything is working out for me” I’ll drag my ass out of bed one day at a time one affirmation at a time one mediation at a time with the belief (Jupiter) with in the next 4 weeks I will be shiny and new

Saturn the Buzz Kill to Jupiter

Published December 17, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I am tired, drained really I do not have much energy and I feel the energy I do have is spent doing what I have to do, I don’t really have any excess to do the things I want to do. I have the sun in the 5th house my identity, my journey if you will is centered around love and creating responsibilities can exhaust me. It is very important that you tend to your natal sun, that you nourish it by the house that it is placed in. You need to remember to feed it. Energetically I always run very high I have Sun square Moon and a Cardinal T square in my Chart Cardinal signs are doers. My mom said she was going to buy me a makeup bag that read “I am busy” because I always am. I laugh at people that have the time to correct my grammatical errors on twitter, I am pretty sure they aren’t doing all that I do in a day. Running, going, writing, working, giving readings, taken a class, on and on and on until this week I hit a wall.

The culprit; Saturn is opposite my Jupiter via transit

Saturn Rules

  • Responsibility
  • Time
  • Work
  • Boundaries
  • Lessons
  • Practicality Zzzzzzz

According to Jeanne Avery in Astrological Aspects Your Inner Dialogs

Saturn “describes shoulds, musts, and oughts”

“Saturn is the testing ground of life and indicates the greatest karmic lesson to be learned”

I don’t do Saturn very well.

I believe if you look to the natal chart you will see how hard a transit for you will be. Not all astrologers believe this; I think if you are heavy say Plutonian Pluto transits will be easier for you because you are familiar with that energy. I have Pluto square my Sun, opposite my moon exact, trine Jupiter, sextile Saturn, Neptune & midheaven and trine my ascendant. Pluto is woven into me, death and rebirth it all comes natural. I just finished a Pluto opposite Sun square moon transit and it was pretty much all gravy.

But Saturn transits god you can find me laying in bed weeping. I do have Saturn natal in a grand fire trine which helps me out with work and money but it is square my Mars and Uranus. “You had me at fuck the system” has been the motto since birth.

Mars energy in a square to Saturn I will always be at war (mars) with authority (Saturn)

Uranus square Saturn indicates I rebel (Uranus) against the status quo (Saturn)

I am just not very good with rules and structure I prefer to be more free floating.

Saturn is now opposing my natal Jupiter in the 4th house it will be exact on New Year’s Eve Oh the joy

Jupiter Represents

  • Expansion
  • Optimism
  • Good Luck
  • Joy

“The Jupitarian quality is a marvelous combination of practicality and enthusiasm. The reverse quality is disappointment. If the aim is too high and the goals are missed the individual can be paralyzed by the let down” –Jeanne Avery

You want to look where Jupiter and Sagittarius are placed in your natal chart to see where you feel lucky or optimistic. I have Sagittarius on my Midheaven, I think this gives me a hope  that things will work out and when they don’t I would say I am greatly disappointed. I usually work from an inner knowing which I think is due to my Jupiter in the 4th house. The 4th house is the root of the chart and reflects what we carry deep within us among other things. So I have never been a 5 year planner I am a go with the flow listen to my own guidance sort of person.

I intuit mostly everything I do. I announced the other day at work I was booking a trip to Machu Piccchu and my colleague said Oh Peru…I had no idea where it even was! I sort of get called to do things

I have written before that I do not feel Jupiter brings us lotto wins or grand romances I think it infuses the planet or house with an optimism and belief that everything will be ok and usually it is until it isn’t.

And that brings me to Saturn opposite Jupiter

Saturn squashes the belief, the optimism, the joy that Jupiter holds. It tests (Saturn always tests) your beliefs, your truths, your inner workings (if Jupiter is in the 4th house).

Robert Hand writes in his book Planets in Aspect about Saturn opposite Jupiter transit

“During this time your opportunities for growth and expansion are limited”.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO F&%ING TIRED TO DO ANYTHING

“You often feel as if your personal freedom is unduly limited by others”.

“This transit is a useful if not always pleasant encounter with reality”

Saturn squelches the joy and optimism of Jupiter don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.

For those of you that have this natal oppositions can work like a swinging door so you can be optimistic, joyful, overly eager and then fall victim to Saturn the disappointment, melancholy, and depression can kick in. Robert Plletier writes in “Planets in Aspect” those that have this natal

“You fluctuate between knowing what you are worth to having doubts about your value”

I know there are worse transits, (they will happen for me in 2018 when Saturn enters Capricorn, I seriously just finished recovering from Saturn in Libra) that’s the beauty that comes with age when you are young you think this will never end, when you are older and know astrology you can simply open your ephemeris and say I may have to drag my uninspired tired ass all the way through December but as of January 1st this transit is over and I can go back to being my high energy manic self perhaps with a few lessons in the bag.
