Now that Saturn has slipped into Scorpio, we’ll begin taking a look at its long term influences on various signs. At the very least expect a very intense and powerful adventure wherever this falls in your chart!!
While it got close in January-February 2012, it went retrograde at 30 Libra. That’s brought all of us to a philosophical completion of some sort, and in those areas where we have Capricorn or Aquarius on the house cusp or planets in those signs we’ve been learning a “leveling” or well-rounded perspective.
Those with planets in Libra have been under a long term restructuring in areas influenced by those planets. Sun in Libra have seen the end of a long cycle, been rewarded for their persistence in “living their light,” and are now into another whole 30 year life cycle. Those with Moon in Libra have restructured their feelings, and are now leading a more responsible, mature, or disciplined life style.
It’s the same with all the other planets. Saturn restructures and matures whatever it touches, and shows us what we can and cannot live with. Mercury in Libra people have learned deeper ways to think and have been forced to be more thoughtful and positive in their ideas and speech. Venus in Libra people have re-written their address book, found all of their relationships challenged, and have deepened some while dropping other.
Now that Saturn has slipped into Scorpio, people with Libra planets can take a deep breath and know they’ve made a major passage. While it’s not directly affecting them any longer, Saturn is still at work since the lessons of the past 2+ years aren’t going away simply because Saturn is in a new sign.
What Saturn in Scorpio will do for anyone with Libra planets is make those functions more substantial, now that the initial structuring work has been done. And of course, it’s now beginning a long term restructuring and maturing of planets we may have in Scorpio along the same lines as when it touched planets in Libra.
Saturn therefore is bringing a long cycle to an end for those born in late October and the first few days of November, regardless of which year. If you were born in that period, conserve your vitality, get real and get clear about some major parts of your life that have either a) succeeded in grand style since you put in the work that was needed to attain that recognition or result, or b) fulfilled themselves but have no more potential to fulfill you, in which case prepare to bow out with style while turning to something newer that could fulfill you over the long haul in the future.
For those born in late July and early August, important new developments around home and family are now coming down over the next year. Get grounded, keep it very simple, gentle, and enjoyable, as well as friendly and detached as you keep your eye on the bigger picture to what’s happening. Though things seem heavy or difficult right now, keep it solidly on course, stay grounded, and let go of fear.
For those born in late April or early May, it’s the beginning of some long term new developments in the area of partnership and equal relationships. If you were born during this time and are in a relationship, expect new developments, new responsibilities, new limitations, or new self-awareness and maturity in your partner’s life. Be encouraging and positive, let go of the need to control or be limited by another’s fears, and get focused on what needs to be there and what doesn’t.
For those born in late January or early February, it’s the culmination of something you began about 1991-1992, and promises you a very high profile time of it over the next year! So if you’re offered a promotion, or more public responsibility, or a higher visibility, go for it!! You’ve prepared over the past two years, and are now ready to take your place in the spotlight!! Just remember to keep it simple, playful, elegant, artful, and noble, and try not to get too intense in public places, since the intensity is already pretty high wherever you find yourself.
Everything I’ve said here applies to those born in early February, May, August, and November this coming January and February 2013, so if you were born during these times, get ready since you’ll be on the threshold of these things just a few weeks down the road. Others of these signs can expect these events to occur later in 2013 into 2014.
Scorpios born after the beginning of November are finishing some things up, and closing out major life areas. Tauruses born after the beginning of May are preparing for a new set of relationships to come, July Leos are finding new ways of disciplining the mind and speech, and February Aquarians are finishing up training for their moment in the Sun. All of these will be in play by November 2013.
This is a time of stabilization and understanding for those born in late February, early March, late June, and early July. It’s a time of maximum productivity for those born in late August, early September, late December, and early January. It’s a period of specialization and gifts for those born the third week of August and third week of January, and uniquely serendipitous events await those born mid-February and mid-July.
Those born in late March and early April need to make some adjustments in their health or work regimen. Growth comes from adaptability, learning new ways of interpreting things, as well as getting a practical plan and following through. Those born in late May and early June need to make some adjustments in their desires or ways of relating to shared values and resources, or others' values and resources. Growth comes from moving in new directions, becoming more self-aware, and learning to take responsibility for a greater potential by eliminating all that is stagnant in the life.
For now, feel the shifts in the energy fields, since now the Saturn principle will get to focus on what’s worthwhile of the ideals we’ve been exposed to the past 2+ years, and eliminate all that is outmoded or obsolete in those ideals. We’re all learning to work with magnetism, and over time will see how to attract what we need, how to repel what we don’t need, and purify everything associated with Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius in our lives.
Eliminate to create the space to regenerate, and be patient as you learn how to master these very intense energies over time! You have nothing left to lose but your fear!!
