Oh no, here comes the enforcer, the master planet, dear old Saturn. Saturn entered Scorpio on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 4:34pm EDT. It was in the sign of balance, Libra since July 21, 2010. Just over 10 hours previous Mercury entered Scorpio at 6:35am EDT. This is an example of when the pupil is ready the teacher appears. This is a two-pronged occurrence. This is a time to allow experience to happen. Those of you who stay in your bubble and resist or reject any experience due to fear or otherwise will bring about a truly different existence. New experiences brought about through Saturn are gradual so then you can advance to another level. How are you feeling now? Has something shifted for any of you in the last couple of weeks? I noticed a shift this past Friday by the late evening. Something different is now hanging around. Lots of heavy wavy energy is hanging around trying to prod you to shift with it. Is it too soon? I think it is time.
On November 14 Mercury enters back into Scorpio retrograde and this is a time that you may choose to ponder your life to discover what it is you have done in the last 2 years. What worked for you in those 2+ years and what truly did not? What was out of balance that kept you miserable or edgy or just plain disinterested? What did you do for balance in your relationships? Or did you do nothing? What is DONE in your life? Did you figure out what has no place or meaning anymore? What have you already experiences so you can MOVE ON? Too many questions, you think…not enough, I say. Then when it proceeds forward again, things begin to speed up a bit. The pondering is passing and then it is time for action. Make those decisions and follow through. You may be quite pleased with the results.
Scorpio Saturn says you need to look at your deepest fears in order to transform them into a strength. This is a time you take full responsibility for your actions, choices and any other behavior if you expect a transformation to take place. Then again, without taking a look at what you need to change within, your life stagnates and you begin to find yourself doing the same thing over and over again. Many of you have been doing this for a very long time. Fear takes away your balance. And your need to resist will continue to bring dissatisfaction and upheaval to your life through those around you in areas of those deeply transformative areas of sexuality, debt, other people’s finances and inheritances. Scorpio is about your deepest feelings on all levels – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. Saturn is about structure, respect, rules, self-imposed limitations, and restrictions. It can be the master on the path or the coach.
If you choose to fight anything during this phase, it will get difficult and challenging. If you haven’t given up yet and continue to act like a teenager (those of you who are past 25) and maturity is lacking, if you are stubborn about changing anything for better –ouch- will be the word of the day. Saturn will reward you if you stay on your true path. This is an important time to be fully responsible for your choices and behavior regarding with whom you merge whether it be a business deal, bank interactions, romantic relationships and sexual partners. This is about you being responsible for you not for others. That creates too much drama when you interfere in someone else’s path. You can be there to support but to take responsibility for others is a sure way to do nothing on your path. This is a time of seeking the real you within and walking through the fear that prevents you from being true to you. This is also a time to remove those emotional blockages. You need to dig deep and if you do it with passion you can change that assemblage point and have a new perspective. Wow, imagine that. Saturn plays for keeps and know just because it moves slowly doesn’t mean changes are not taking place. Be persistent, determined and ready to ride the wave no matter how big it comes in. Passion will win the day in close partnerships. Sexuality is a prime part of Scorpio and Saturn brings a structure to it. This also will help your transformation.
There are many more things I could say but the day has been long and I send you blessings and strength to deal with the new energy. Watch for the New Moon post for October 15. Be well and stay in the moment. Thank you for all you do. Until again. Love, Jan
