Saturn is the ruler of reality. Neptune is the ruler of unreality, the multi-dimensional world. Saturn is in Capricorn in its ruling sign, where it expressed its cold restricting, conservative historical nature the strongest. Saturn is the planet of reality and karma. Saturn rules seniors, times, limitations, senators, history, the architect, structure, tradition, in modern times fathers and the Patriarchy.
Neptune is also in its modern ruling sign of Pisces where it is also freest to express the intrinsic nature of Pisces, the ephemeral, spiritual, dreamy, creative, chameleon-like, unbounded, imaginative, emotional spiritual and psychically Unified energy. Pisces is the sign of endings, addictions, illusions and projection.
Saturn in Capricorn is sextile to Neptune in Pisces for the last if 3 rare sextiles in 2019. These planets are both in their own home signs and are in expressing their natures to the fullest. This rare aspect is in effect now until November 8th.
This aspect is totally best described by the expression. The “iron fist in a velvet glove,” referring to a person who appears gentle but is determined and often inflexible underneath. The iron fist- very literally as Saturn’s metal is Lead. Pisces is a velvet glove, soft-touch energy.
This rare and strong aspect brings a relatively soft landing reality check to the Pisces dreamy, illusory, otherworldly and real-world confusion abounding everywhere these days.
Saturn in the Tarot is #15 The Devil and Capricorn one of the signs Saturn rules.
Neptune in the Tarot although not traditional as it is a modern ranspersonal Planet is related to the #12 The Hanged Man or #18 the Moon which is also symbolic of the sign of Pisces which Neptune rules.
Synchronistically the two planets will be in an exact sextile 0f 60 degrees on November 8 which is numerologically 11/8. These two numbers are interchangeable in the tarot.
Saturn and Neptune will both be at 16.1 degrees of Capricorn and Pisces on that day. That is a rare and auspicious aspect. A perfect balance of reality and spirituality, of hard knocks and escapism.
BUILD A DREAM
It’s a lovely spiritual aspect to build a new dream very concretely in your career or to imagine retirement or where you want to be 28/29 years from now when Saturn is once again at these same degrees in Capricorn. Saturn is the architect and builder.
It’s like Martin Luther King saying ‘I have a dream” and he indeed did. Spirit nudged him to trust to have faith and to build that dream into reality.
We can concretely experience spirituality in a way that we know spirit, our intuition, our dreams are just as real as “3D.” They are indeed part and parcel of the same thing. The Saturnine nature isThe Devil, the illusion that we are only material beings, that’s where we sell our souls to the devil for material gain and lose sight of the Divine plan. We can now truly see the nature of reality as spiritual in essence and vice versa. Our souls and spirits have incarnated on the Earth to learn the emotional and often difficult Saturn hard knocks lessons which are only available in the 3rd dimension so they say.
This energy can also be very altruistic compassionate and romantic as Neptune is the “higher octave” of Venus. Many “soul mates” may meet now. You will have that instant recognition.
The last time these very different in nature planets sextile each other was back on
June 27, 1995, August 17,1995 and March 15, 1996
My husband and I started our relationship at this time. I’d forgotten that but it was totally real and totally magical. We re-met in January of 1996.
This is the 3rd of 3 sextiles in 2019 between Saturn, the planet of hard knocks, career, history, seniority, death, the fathers, the Patriarchy and Neptune the planet of faith and escapism, the after-life, poets, artists, drug addicts.
January 31, 2019 was the first sextile at 14. 54 minutes
The 2nd sextile was June 18, 2019, at 18 degrees 43 minutes, with Jupiter also squaring Neptune on June 16 a very major aspect.
Look back at where these degrees fall in your own natal chart to see how they are affecting you personally.
These 2 planets won’t be in this harmonious aspect again until June 27, 2031!
