Saturn Re-loaded “critical degree” times by Tara Greene Astrologer Tarot Psychic spiritual coach

SATURN aka the cosmic cop is RETROGRADE @ 29 degrees, “slowly he turned step by step inch by inch…”

the grim reaper

the grim reaper Saturn

of Libra. The very last and Critical degree in the sign of Relationships, Balance, Karma,the Arts, the judicial system, beauty, the sign of marriage and relationships. All things in relationship to each other, which is in essence ALL THAT IS are being weighed in the Egyptian Great Goddess Maat’s scales of Justice. All relationship issues especially marriage are being revamped, repealed, revealed, re-enacted, renewed, renovated, reinvigorated, resting,reset, reviewed. The cosmic Doctor Saturn is giving us all a big prescription, a time for tonic.  A general Rx time as this is the Retrograde glyph.

Interesting that as Saturn went Retrograde and  The California upholding of  Gay marriages law was reinstated.

NOTE on your calendars that  the “critical weighing time” lasts from  Feb 7 until June 25th!

Saturn, also known as THE GRIM REAPER will bring endings for many relationships that aren’t in balance on all levels to fold during this time period. Literal ones, his and hers ones and political alliances, Laws will be repealed, government imbalances will be brought under scrutiny, tax overhauls, arts funding, redressing what is fair and what isn’t on many levels. Saturn is considered to be ‘exalted” in Libra which means it expresses itself  in the most fair way as Saturn is always hard, harsh, Father Time.

So Saturn is giving us a last chance to redress all the imbalances with ALL OUR RELATIONS over these many months since Saturn entered Libra waay back in October  29, 2009 {with a small Retro back to Virgo} then straight ahead in Libra since July 21, 2010-  read more about Saturn’s escapades in my entire article here  http://taratarot.com/id34.html

The REALLY critical parts are Feb 7 – March 3rd when Saturn is standing almost still at that infamous 29th degree, grinding the message in as it were. Expect things to be harsh, tough, leaden,heavy, weighty, difficult, slow.  So a lot of literally hanging in the balance, waiting with bated breath, waiting for the shoe to drop, so quiet you could hear a pin drop kind of thing.

Then Saturn will revisit that 29th degree from September 27-October 5th when Saturn then enters SCORPIO! And a new era begins.

A VERY TOUGH SATURN RETURN for those born 1982-83

BORN on January 1982,September 82-November 1982; then May 1983-Aaugust 83 ? This will be a very tough Saturnine REALITY CHECK! a Whopper of a hard ‘n heavy one for your 1st Saturn Return for all of you kids born with Saturn and Pluto in late Libra. Life isn’t easy, no bed of roses, you may have thought your were ENTITLED, BESPOKE etc. unh unh unh.

Sorry Kids, I also have a son born in June of 1983. I understand but it is time to wake up and smell the coffee,the writing on the wall etc.

Also if you are A BABY BOOMER ? Born November 1952-May 1953, and then August 1953-October 1953

Your 2nd Saturn return will also be pretty harsh. Health issues,depression, arthritis, divorce will all be prevalent.

Although you also will have Neptune at the 22 degree point and Saturn will be conjunct your Natal Neptune planet of spirituality, illusion, delusion, addictions, bliss, oneness, yoga, ashrams and not to mention SOUL MATES. This means manifesting your highest dreams, letting go of material reality and following the higher spiritual path of someone who renounces material and worldly things.  Many of the boomers will choose to opt for simplification and the pure life. And this will affect those born up until December of 1955 who have Neptune at 29 degrees.

What falls apart, down, into place, has worn out its welcome, will take mucho time to integrate back into place.

Who gets hit the hardest?

All late Librans of course born between Oct 15-22nd.  Saturn goes back to 22 degrees of Libra. But also if you are born late in ARIES also 15 -22nd of March. CANCER  July 15-22 and CAPRICORN, born Jan 15- 22 especially Capricorn as Saturn is your planetary ruler, head honcho, first in command. 

If you know your natal chart check for where all the late degrees of these cardinal signs -22-29 degrees are in your chart to see where you will be tested. I can help guide you out of the murky depths.  taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

 YOU WILL  BE TESTED. WE WILL  ALL  BE TESTED.

Think of it like this, the modern metaphor for Saturn Retrograde is just like going through Security at the airport. You have to wait in line for aeons, you have to take off your shoes,surrender your belongings, maybe get searched, patted down, invaded, x-rayed, etc. If you don’t past muster with the powers that be, you may be tasered, and hauled off for interrogation on suspicion of being a terrorist {substitute wall street occupier, political activist, revolutionary.}

But, there are other factors at work now like higher consciousness PLUS the influences of the infamous Uranus, planet of Revolution in early Aries squaring Pluto now one of the major hallmarks of 2012. Remember that Saturn is the Ancient ruler of Aquarius, until that  planet was discovered in 1781 by Hershel, the symbol looks like an H.

Vedic/India Astrologers only use the 7 traditional “planets” so Saturn does rule revolutionary Aquarius to them. So this brings in added meaning. Saturn Retrograde then will take us back over the revolutionary track that was laid over a year ago and was never completed to the people’s will and the peole will triumph and will be victorious in Syria, and also in Iran.  I will talk about Iran’s astrology in the next article. Modern Iran was founded Feb 1,  1979 making it a,what else? an Aquarian country. Still needing the people’s revolution.

LIBRAN COUNTRIES

ARGENTINA  AUSTRIA  CHINA  EGYPT  JAPAN  SIBERIA  TIBET  BELGIUM  BOTSWANA  FIJI  NIGERIA  UGANDA

How many of these are in the news these days?  China’s economy will go south of the border. TIBET will demand freedom from China, Siberia, feeling its enormous raw materials wealth will also seek to break from China. Belgium is the seat of  The EU in much trouble these days, and will see much more tightening of their belts.

MEDITATION TOOL

As Mars is also Retrograde in Virgo, the work sign during this time period Jan 24- April 14 things will feel decidedly S_L_O_W  as 

molasses

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT March 12 -April 4 

From 6 degrees Aries back to 23 degrees Pisces on April 4 where it turns DIRECT. But it will take until  April 23 till it’s past point of Retrogradation an dits clear communications again.

So take this very precious rare time, it’s a real PEARL, a  gift, I call it FAT TIME, when time dilates and slows down.

especially when time is going so fast, a rare treasure to review, reset new intentions, relax, patience is a virtue now.

Meditate on where you’ve been, who you were then, who was/still is in your life, what you’ve been doing, thinking about.

 What goals have you met? What have you learned? How have you changed?  since 2010.

How were you  anticipating 2012? Here you are!

It’s time to let go of all old habits, activities and action { MARS} old vendettas, hard habits, work and relationships both within and without that do not suit the new evolving higher consciousness and transparency that is being ushered in now.

Thar will be no fooling in relationships,to Mother Nature, in beauty,or injustice allowed after this time period. Saturn as Grim reaper will put an end to that sort of thing. We cannot evolve unless we face the truth, our inner truth and let die the old, outworn, patterns.

Just breathe. Follow the breath in and out naturally deeply slowly in through your nose into the belly out through your mouth. Say to yourself who is it who is breathing? over and over and over, Saturn brings discipline, routine, realness.

As you do this every day, you will go deeper and deeper into your Self.  Simple be aware of your ingrained old outworn karmic patterns of thought, the behaviors, the patriarchal lead weight of rules that you were indoctrinated with.

If you are in a relationship the criteria to ask is Do you each honor the other? Are you equals? Whats the balance point?

Simply ask your Higher Self, your Guardian Angels to come and oversee you, simply let go of all the excess weight you are carrying. Ideas, beliefs, emotional weight that isn’t yours, your children’s issues, your parents, the weight of history.

Do this every day, write down what you have learned at the end of each session. It’s basically a whole month of the 29th degree. Be your own interrogator, get to the truth, the truth will set you free.

The song for this Saturn Retro is LIVE AND LET DIE by Paul McCArtney

Dont be afraid of losing your relationship, you can’t lose what you don’t really have. If you can’t set your loved one free then it’s not love. It is possession, and fear. The famous psychologist Carl Jung said there are only two emotions, love and fear. they cannot co-exist.

The saying is Art is long and time is fleeting. But now Time is slow,and so is art during the Saturn Libra retrograde. Make art, make beauty, make love.Love yourself,

No time for pushing and fussing. Allow yourself to remember how to relax. Spend time in nature if you can, do yoga, cook wholesome slow cooked meals. Be sentimental.

VALENTINE’S DAY WILL BE HEAVY, OLD FASHIONED

Remember the good old days and recreate them. The more you go slow now the more you will be rewarded. It’s still winter in  the north,and in North America even though there isn’t any snow, be like the bear and hibernate, dream a lot, sleep a lot, think of Camelot.

Ultimately you will be freer than ever. This is the real serious necessary step and prep for 2012.

Blessing  your shedding. You are like the butterfly entering the coccon stage. It will be dark and you are feeling restricted, the unknown can be scary or exciting. Deep inside, your inner knowing senses that something bigger, brighter, more glorious and freeing will emerge as you ALLOW to die  your old habits so you may be reborn as a beautiful butterfly.

Milk of Human Kindness Cancer Full Moon Jan 19 by Tara Greene

Milk is the Milky way Galaxy “Milky Way Goddess Milk is stars in Heaven

Cancer Full Moon Jan 19 ,11 Critical Time to Nurture & Be Nurtured and Jan 22 Beginning of beginning cycles of 2011 copyright Tara Greene 2011- infinity 

No the signs have not changed in my world or yours. The attributes of the signs remains the same. This is the 4th of five full Moons in a row that occur at the LAST DEGREE of a sign. Full moons are a culmination of the monthly lunar cycle, the fullness, and heavy, fertile. The Moon’s gravitational pull on the oceans and on our bodies and emotions is at full tilt!

At 29 degrees of Cancer the sign ruled by La Luna Herself we find ourselves symbolically engorged with emotion, awash with feelings, engorged with the need to nurture and be nurtured. 29 degrees of Cancer represent the ultimate Home coming/coming home. It symbolizes the nourishing unconditional love of the Great Mother, whose cosmic Milk spurts across the heavens always and our very own galaxy is named for her Milk of Human Kindness- the Milky Way.

So Cancer is all about home, Mom, the womb, privacy, safety, emotional security, feelings, the Feminine, the womb, the tomb, real estate, self-sacrificing, the stomach, food. The dark side of Cancer can be eating disorders, selfishness, inability to relate emotionally, smothering others, self-indulgence.

The Sun at 29 degrees of Capricorn tells us this is a final earthy turning point. Capricorn ruled by Saturn is all about discipline, dedication, commitment, maturity, and responsibility.

Capricorn usually reps the patriarchy, corporations, the father, seniors. Capricorn is Ruled by Saturn, which is the planet of Karma, obstacles, and limitations. The shadow side of Capricorn is domination,

Very Powerful Full Moon all about Feelings, Love @ 1:22 pm PST, 4:22 pm EST, 9:22 pm GST  

Balance your need for work, social standing {Capricorn Sun} and your most private space, where you need to retreat to, the emotional space that almost no one sees, your most private space. Sign Cancer is your unconscious, the ocean of imaginal experience and memories, the karmic fluid, the womb, mom both Archetypal and your real mom.

Whether your experience with your mother was/ is positive, unconditionally loving or not in various degrees, spaces, places and time.

Your own birth is the starting place, a description for your life.  How you feel about your inner Feminine, your Intuition and feelings, what you nurture, how you nurture others and yourself is the dichotomy that needs to be balanced at this Cancer Full Moon.

At the full moon reflect, a Cancerian image of the Full Moon on still waters on your birth, your beginnning, the Breast, nurturing, how you were nurtured and how it affects how you nurture.
