Do you Saturnize Yourself? Does Someone Saturnize You? (Saturn Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius)

Saturn is about (amongst other things) restrictions, limitations, karma, tests, weight, obstacles, goals, maturity, age, what is old (like old news), etc.

Taurus is about (amongst other things) growth, fine food and drink, stability, security, resources, structures, building, love, sensuality, what is valued, finances, stocks, bonds, and saving accounts.

I have Saturn Taurus and if you clicked on that link I don’t have all those problems though the delineation is quite good!

I believe that all problems are solved in time. So an immature Saturn in Taurus may exhibit some of that cookbook delineation but a mature Saturn in Taurus (whose learned a lot of lessons) will not.  Also, there’s something to be said about going from being uneducated to educated.  Once you know what’s happening and why, you can do things to make positive changes in your life.

With my Saturn in Taurus, I’ve been working with  limited financial resources and I find it takes forever to get what I want, to be stable and secure.

But it doesn’t have to take forever, and I don’t have to be limited. I can budget, ask where I can get resources for less, and plan for my future.  I’ve done that but I haven’t done it consistently and that’s a problem for Saturn.  Saturn likes to see consistency over a long period of time.  The facts, the actual deeds done, are the proof Saturn needs in order to give you the unlimited, Jupiterian gifts of that sign. So eventually I’ll be wealthy, have incredible security, and safety when I get with the F-ing program! But it’s a full course load….

Saturn Taurus (April 30, 1969 to June 18, 1971, June 12, 1972 to February 21, 1972, June 10, 1998 to October 25, 1998, March 1, 1999 to August 9, 2000, October 17, 2000 to April 20, 2001) means lessons around setting up structures that limit resources (such as a budget), responsibilities and investments in love, being tested through being uprooted (can you find your solid ground again?!), delayed gratification (be patient), finding your voice (for me, singing and other things!), responsible predictions, etc.

And I’ve found one can master their lessons and gain access to the vault of gifts, through age and maturity and/or through logic (Aquarius being the co-ruled sign of Saturn) and knowledge.

I wasn’t supposed to be born with a silver spoon in my mouth as it relates to Taurean themes.  I have to work for everything I get, even when it seems that I didn’t.  But if I did have everything handed to me on a silver platter, I probably wouldn’t have been able to appreciate and respect Taurean gifts.  So whatever sign Saturn is in is where you possess incredible power and giftedness BUT you have to earn it.  It has to be respected, appreciated, and handled with care.

So what sign is Saturn in for you?

Oh this got VERY LONG again… LOL
Well, I’ve started it so let me keep going on for just a bit more…

Here’s a little astrological story…

I have my Saturn in Taurus. My friend has their Saturn in Leo. I have a Saturn ruled chart and Saturn (as a planet) rises first and before my Sun.

I find that my friend suppresses or discourages my spending and I discourage their constant desire to play.  They’ve felt restricted, but so have I.  What would work for us (and has) is that I discipline my spending with their support rather than them acting as my parent.  But that means it’s helpful when I come to them with ideas on how to save or spend wisely or when they question me about my spending (do you really need that?!) in a non-condescending way and with my permission. And if they choose to work before playing and take more responsibility in their commitments, I won’t have the desire to curb their playtime. Instead I’ll support and encourage how they restrict and free themselves.

I’m a Leo Sun-Mars and they have Jupiter Taurus! There’s so much intertwined here with the Leo-Taurus thing but not enough time or joy in writing about it.  Talking about it in live conversation? Yes, there’s joy in that and my friend and I have already done that so I’m sharing here some juicy bits and insights found in that conversation.

Saturn Leo (September 18, 1975 to January 14, 1976, June 6, 1976 to November 17, 1977, January 6, 1978 to July 26, 1978, July 17, 2005 to September 2, 2007) comes with lessons around disciplining playtime; responsible leadership and control; limiting creativity; suppressing child-like wonder (the old and wise child missing out on innocence); earning entitlements, affection, and appreciation over time; controlling the ego and sense of power over others; subdued passions; releasing pride, vanity, dogma, and intolerance.

Some More Sample Delineations

Since Scorpio and Aquarius is opposite Taurus and Leo (and they are all fixed signs) I’ll do a short delineation below:

Saturn Scorpio (November 30, 1982 to May 6, 1983,August 25, 1983 to November 17, 1985,October 6, 2012 to December 23, 2014, June 16, 2015 to September 17, 2015): Lessons around sexual responsibility, disciplined occult knowledge, limited control and domination of another and self,  secrets that test, longevity of sexual endurance (time), sexual immaturity to sexual maturity, delays in uncovering the truth, transforming with wisdom, dulled intensity, responsible possession, containing charm, etc..

Saturn Aquarius (February 7, 1991 to May 20, 1993, July 1, 1993 to January 28, 1994): Lessons around being responsible for humanity, disciplined sharing of innovations, limited scientific influence or knowledge, delays in humor (dead-pan humor), setting boundaries of distance, timed computing, structured genius, rebellion causing sorrow, etc..

The world’s people are opening up to LIFE.

Yesterday I had a series of posts (from different friends) with outstretched open arms. Literally it came up on my timeline one after the other (should have done a screenshot – ah, whatever. LOL). A sign for this Neptune Scorpio in the 10th, if I ever saw one. :-)

The world’s people are opening up to LIFE.
Life is yours to have; have it while you got it!

Sunday May 20 – Sun Enters Gemini, New Moon Gemini, Solar Eclipse, Aspects, & Venus Rx…!

Lots to celebrate, reflect upon, and think about with these upcoming celestial events.
Gemini and Libra are air signs and they like to talk it out, think it out, and express themselves assertively and with evenness.

Dates/Times

Sun Gemini 0° (exact on May 20th 11:16am EST), New Moon Gemini 0° (Exact on May 20th,7:05pm EST), Venus Gemini Rx 23°25, Saturn Libra 23°45 — Aspects: Sun Conjunct New Moon, Venus Rx Trine Saturn

A number of keywords for Gemini:  Changeable, love of variety and mental excitement, $20 words, a gift for the gab, writers and communicators, intelligent, flighty, fickle, two sides, the watchers and observers, song-writing, jingles, text messaging, telephoning, email, board (not bored) games, Scrabble!, Trivial Pursuit, siblings, neighbours, learning, discovering, taking it all in, quick, witty, versatile, mental gymnastics, trade and commerce, sales…

The Sun & Moon are overwhelmingly happy and content with each other today and the Sun will get eclipsed (Solar Eclipse).  I see this as the ego and self-interests being overshadowed and making way for the process of reconnecting and communicating with our emotional selves.  We want to get in touch, understand, know, and communicate our feelings to others and more importantly — to ourselves!

Through the Venus Rx-Saturn Trine, Venus is re-evaluating her mighty and long-lasting karmic commitments she’s made to her finances, beauty, self-esteem, love, friendships, and relationships.  She is taking a look at whether she wants to be further tested in these areas or make the final ascent to reach and end her old goals.  For the most part, she’s done with what’s went on in the past.

Now Saturn is in Libra and Libra is at home in Venus so Venus Rx Trine Saturn is an important aspect as it relates to Libran themes, issues, and opportunities.

Saturn Libra has been doing a dance since 2009 but it’s since July 2010 that we’ve all really noticed serious and very real restrictions in our partnerships, art, contracts, finances, etc..

Saturn Libra is helping Venus take a fair and balanced look at all this.

And Saturn enters Scorpio in October 2012 so Saturn has 4 more months to do its work in finalizing and marking the tests our relationships, art, money, beauty, etc. have had to endure for quite some time..

As well, Saturn Libra is in Trine with Venus Rx until roughly August 7th which is also around the time that Venus is completely out of the shadow period (July 31). So by the start of August, the majority of us will begin to have a solid footing on where we are going next in the Libran areas of our lives.

Yes, we will feel more comfort, at ease, and at home with ourselves, and our renewed and redone commitments.

That’s a relief because the last two years have been the most trying years of my life (in memory. LOL)

Which house will the Sun, New Moon, and Venus Rx in Gemini land in your chart? Where’s Libra? Have you ever done a New Moon ritual or intention?

Things you can do?  Send a message of love, send a package of joy, write out verbal hugs, express heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Name your feelings.  Meditate upon your relationship to yourself, money, beauty, art, etc..

By the way, Sunday is my FAVORITE day.

RIP Etta James
