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 All relationship issues especially marriage are being revamped, repealed, revealed, re-enacted, renewed, renovated, reinvigorated, resting,reset, reviewed.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 Literal ones, his and hers ones and political alliances, Laws will be repealed, government imbalances will be brought under scrutiny, tax overhauls, arts funding, redressing what is fair and what isn’t on many levels.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.

Valentine’s Day Gaga-dance, sing,LUV Tara Greene Astrology of Feb 14

First of all Happy Valentine’s Day gift from me to you.

Watch this stunning combo of some of my all time fave stuff.

I love dancing- Eleanor Powell, she was beautiful and one of the best tap dancers around.

One of my favourite songs by fave writer Leonard CohenDance me to the end of love

Madeleine Peiroux a Billie Holiday sound- alike who i didn’t know of till now!

So whats the cosmic weather really like for V day 2011?

the heavens above on Valentine's Day 2011

Heaven on valentine's day 2011

The MOON governs the overall reigning feelings emotions memories and instincts of any day.

This V day in additon to all the romantic hype will be replete with high emotions moods and very sentimental with the Moon in Cancer. Be sure to go to a homey comfort food place for dinner or cook yourself at home. Cancer Moon likes traditional, and the way to a Cancer moon’s valentine’s heart is through the stomach. Apple pie of course just like Mom made it.

Cancer mOon opposite Pluto in Capricorn at 6 degrees, wow this changes it up. Pluto demoted or no is POWER, SEX, SECRETS, kinky,atomic, underworldly,totally nihilistic indulgences,the death and resurrection show! so Mom vs. all the things she forbade you to do in tantalizing opposition. First we’ll play house nice and then we’ll mess it up under the rug…  whatever your fancy desires! 

VENUS planet ruling LOVE, ROMANCE, women is at 12 degrees of capricorn also still opposite the MOON and conjunct Pluto. so sexy intense, passionate, jealous, steamy, lots of Victoria’s secret lingerie, dark raw chocolate till spread all over, oodles of roses till they almost sell out  the entire planet. Venus in Capricorn though is all business, so buy your favourite femme fatale something practical, tweedy even, for work, she can double deal in the daily grind,not just the bump and.

Venus Squares Jupiter in Aries so things will move along very quickl, dive right in, dont be shy.

Pluto forms a tense T-square with  Retrograde Saturn in Libra and that Cancerian quickly moving Moon. Tense, intense, take her out to a Moroccan  Egyptian or Middle eastern restaraunt. a bit of humour..again crying and or at least reminiscing over past lovers may come up during the evening inspite of your best efforts.

MARS? what about the planet ruling the male gender and  libidos in general? Mars is cozied up to and sandwiched conjunct the Sun in Aquarius along with Mercury at 17 degrees and Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius, still wide but connected to Chiron the wounded healer at Zero degrees of Pisces.

Mars in breezy Aquarius is easy going humanitarian, love the one your with, he’ll buy you a save the polar bears, whales, indiginous peoples, raw milk or planetary  something for Valentine’s day. That’s a good thing too!  A bit detached, quick moving, freedom loving, inventive- new positions? tech-y gifts? how romantic you say. He’ll let you think it was your idea.

Mars conjunct Neptune-divinely romantic, full of poetry, art, fine wine, soul mates sparkly eyeballing are the vibes. Be carefull not to drink to excess with Mars and Neptune connected it could be too easy. Judgement will be cloudy, remember that he/she may seem like your soul survivor today and the total opposite tomorrow but hey.. youve got nothing else to loose. Chiron here indicates fragile hearts beneath that cool Aquarian, texty, smooch, hipster of the mo exterior, so dont be surprised when the mask falls with the underwear..

And remember by Wedenesday the Moon will swagger into Leo and the entire emotional picture will have changed.

Live everyday as if it were Valentine’s day…

I am here to help guide you with the Romance Astrology star crossed lovers department if it does work out and I hope it does. -have agood one.

 Feb 15 is called Nirvana Day by the way.
