A recent comment inspired me to offer this brief note on Saturn, since it is the nozzle for effective focus at this time. Saturn is said to "rule time," and its keywords all involve learning how to use time to best effect. When we totally adopt Saturn's virtues, we "do Saturn" as there is no separation between its function and our behavior. Learning all we can about how to adapt the way we express Saturn in our lives is the key to its planetary duality, "dominion and slavery." So why are things seemingly moving so quickly?
Time is indeed quickening due to large scale perceptual changes brought about by
Also, time is apparently speeding up as the time gaps in our experience close, thanks to things like the internet. Everything is much faster today than even a decade ago, and this is influencing our perception of time itself. We can only find security in flexibility and adaptability, as what works today may not tomorrow, and we're all trying to get what we need as fast as we can exercising as much patience with the process as possible.
It is also useful to know the limits of our "response-ability" to create or deal with our reality. Saturn teaches us what we can affect and what we cannot, the boundaries of our ability to deal with certain things, including situations we didn't create, but were created by others. In most circumstances we didn't create the hectic conditions we live in, though we do have to learn how to deal with living during these conditions. I'll close this short post by offering you a chance to take a new look at We Live On the Edge of Change at the Dawning of a New Age, which may offer you a helpful perspective on time, experience, and the dynamic times we live in. Enjoy!
