Saturn Opposite Jupiter Transit; A Crisis of Faith 

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; that is what I tell myself.

I can be a runner in some ways but I have decided to face my shit so I’m no longer carrying it with me. When sad in typical Cancer fashion I call out sick and stay home for a week to nurse my wounds. This time I have decided to confront my them head on. After all we can’t heal what we refuse to face.

Jupiter governs the 9th house in astrology home to religion, beliefs, and 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 God exists, a colleague wanted to know why people post Pray for Syria and if God existed would this be happening? I don’t believe in God- not in the sense- 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 naturally so hopeful. Disappointments in love are not an anomaly I have Saturn in the 7th house it sorts of comes with the territory. This year numerologicaly (universally) has been a nine year this signifies the end of a cycle.  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’t 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 comprised of astrology but also of spiritual texts 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 prisons, change my subconscious limiting beliefs, not crumble in the face of disappointment and truly believe that “everything is working out for me”.  I will drag my ass out of bed and one day at a time, one affirmation at a time, one mediation at a time align with the belief (Jupiter) that within the next 4 weeks when this transit is over, I will be shiny and new.

Saturn the Buzz Kill to Jupiter

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 creativity. The 5th house is the house of joy; being weighed down with extra responsibilities is exhausting.

It is very important that you tend to your natal Sun, that you nourish it with the activities suggested by the house that it is placed in. 6th house Sun, fitness time and order will really help you flourish. If you have a 9th house Sun schedule a vacation or attend a lecture. Wherever our Sun is placed we need to remember to feed it.

Energetically I always run very high I have Sun square Moon, a Cardinal T square in my chart along with a Grand Fire Trine. 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 ought’s”

“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 naturally. 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 lying in bed weeping.

I am just not very good with rules and structure I prefer to be 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 letdown” –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 stems from my natal 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 this isn’t the worst transit, (those 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.

Saturn opposite Mars Transit Part 2

This is a continuation from Mars Opposite Saturn Part 1 You can read that here

Saturn opposite Mars Transit disengage your rage

Today while I was driving someone was in front of me in the middle highway lane doing 30 mph & in the passing lane doing 30. I couldn’t get around anyone. This is my everyday struggle being behind someone that drives like Fred Flintstone, driving behind someone with out of state plates, driving behind a vehicle that has navigation on. It’s a daily occurrence at 6am, 1pm or 1am that I find myself sitting in traffic. I mentioned in a previous post this transit is known to bring forth rage. And I can see why. Mars is assertive energy, its drive, its force & Saturn is the brick wall that stops you.
Don’t let the fact that my mars is in Taurus fool you. I know, I know, Taurus is slow….really slow it’s considered the slowest earth sign but put Mars ; the planet of action in the 3rd house & I have a need for speed. The 3rd house rules getting around, it rules walking, driving, traveling, communication & your thought process. That is all slowing down. I slept for 20 hours the other day!
I drive fast; I have always driven fast on my driving test many moons ago they wrote that I was heavy on the gas, I talk fast; I’ve been told I’m abrupt & have no filter. I never want to convey to people I am some all Zen astrologer because I am not. My mind rarely shuts off it’s always going. I’ve been told I walk so fast when I pass someone they feel a breeze….this is why the sign & house placement are important in astrology! If I had mars in Taurus but in the 4th house I would probably exert my energy doing house repairs!

Saturn is retrograde right now in Scorpio before a planet turns retrograde it stations. It is said to be slowing down and standing still before heading into retrograde motion. Saturn was standing still exactly opposite my mars at 23 degrees it will back up until 16 degrees of Scorpio before going direct & over my Mars again. This transit is particularly long and arduous because my Mars is on the retrograde degree of Saturn.
I don’t see the lesson totally I don’t get the point, slow down, stop, relax I’m sure it has something to do with being patient. Two people I know out of the blue gave me lectures about letting things go, about the dangers of raging against the wrong person how someone can shoot you. I have been thinking twice before I flip off a Fred Flintstone while driving or throw someone’s purse on the floor that is taken up two seats on the train…yes I have done that! I’m grateful that I haven’t broken anything my friend with Saturn transiting the 3rd broke her arm while slipping on the train & is now in physical therapy.
Slow down is clearly the message but personally I have a need for speed & this transit is a Debbie Downer. You should know I wrote this post while stuck on the train in a tunnel “sorry for the delay there is train traffic ahead” …wow how original it seems I cant escape the epic halts

A How To Post: finding the house your new moon, full moon or transit is in

This is an educational post on how to find your transits in the houses for example when you hear a new moon is at 10 degrees of aquarius or an eclipse is at 14 degrees of Aries or Saturn is transiting 21 degrees of Scorpio you will know what house to look in. You will know where & how this will effect you

Step 1 go to www.astro.com

20140129-142735.jpg

20140129-143117.jpg


You only need the sign and the houses at this stage you do not need the “planet positions”. My 12th house is at 20 degrees of capricorn -my first house is at 19 degrees of aquarius that means that my 12th house holds 20 degrees of capricorn all the way until 19 degrees of aquarius

This week a new moon is in 10 degrees of aquarius. It falls in my 12th house because my 1st house doesn’t start until 19 degrees.

Another way to do this is to simply click "transits" on the natal chart page & this will bring up your natal chart & the transiting planets in green on the outside. For instance Saturn is transiting my 9th house, you can see that by just looking at it.

Saturn opposite Mars Transit disengage your rage

I want to cry, I want to scream I want to sleep for days & most of all I want to be left alone. I’am writing this while waiting for the train, I’m waiting because the doors just closed in my face. Last night I left work 1 hour early so I could get home early instead it took 2 hours. The subway announced something like this: attention all passengers due to track work expect delays in the early morning, in the late night & on the weekends. They should’ve just announced when there wouldn’t be track work. I’m having a Saturn opposite Mars transit. It’s getting tighter by the day. I’m unraveling more each day. Saturn Father Time, Lord of Karma, responsibility.. the authority is in the 9th house opposing my Mars in the 3rd house Mars rules action, aggression, the 3rd house rules community, transportation, communication, cars, transit, siblings, neighbors. Yesterday I was taking a nap only to be awaken by security in my building telling me to re park my car as it wasn’t inside the lines. Really? That’s Saturn for you, holding you accountable, he is the task master; making sure you do shit right. I don’t care about doing shit the “right” way. I want to do it my way. Mars square Saturn natal I say fuck the man, screw the system,rules are made to be broken. The night before I went out & when I wanted to take the train home I was informed I had to go six stops back to get on a different train to get to my stop. That seems to be the Saturn opposite Mars transit theme; six steps forward to go six steps back. I’ve read this is one of the more frustrating transits as you are filled with rage & you have to be careful to not go off on anyone or internalize it. Where is the release? The other day a car almost ran me over & I hit his mirror when he missed I was going to hit the car again but I slipped on ice & lost my footing …the universe was like no no be careful tread lightly. I feel like people are coming at me so I’ve made it a point to disengage my rage, I work with a woman that is quite erratic she once called the police on me after a work meeting & attempted to have me arrested when she didn’t like what I had to say. She became angry with me this week over some nonsense & I quietly said if you have an issue with me please don’t talk to me. I work with people all day & yesterday it appeared one after another were looking for an argument. I just kept telling myself don’t respond. This is going to be along transit & a difficult one. I hate saturn I hate him in synastry, natal & via transit. His energy is hard for me to adhere to. My chart is all cardinal I lead, I go, I’m on the move. My mars sextiles my mercury I’m fast mentally I grasp ideas & am quick verbally but the lesson of this transit is slow down ..really I wish someone could wake me when it’s over.

Some random Saturn lessons:
When Saturn squared my venus I learned love takes work more work than I was prepared to give

Saturn opposite my moon I was sad and spent time with a man that was melancholy. The theme misery loves company

Saturn square Sun: control is an illusion you can’t force anything in this life what is meant to be will be

Saturn Transiting 8th House, Show Me The Money

Saturn conjunct my chart ruler: sometimes life doesn’t provide an escape hatch & you have to grin & bear it

Lessons of a Saturn Transit

Uranus Conjunct Saturn the battle continues

Next year I’ll have saturn opposite Venus…oh goody I really can’t wait
this is the app time passages everyone should have it:
