Turning Saturn-Mars in hard aspect to a harmonious one

I think the Mars Square Saturn aspect comes down to respect. In natal charts – self-respect and respect of authority figures, in synastry charts – respect of other, who may be an authority on something you’re not.

Turning Mars-Saturn in hard aspect to a harmonious one:

Tip #1 – Acknowledge the old man (Saturn) for his experience, hardship, and wisdom.

Tip #2 – Take your time. Keep commitments. Discipline yourself. Avoid distractions.

Tip #3 – Make a plan, then work your plan. Don’t rush the process but be FEARLESS.

Astrology: Square Aspects

Square’s cause boxed-in tension. When you feel tension, what do you do? If you don’t do anything, what happens? Yeah, that’s what square’s are all about.

Whitney Houston: Love Aspects – Women Who Love Too Much

Whitney Houston definitely had a whole lot of love to give. Her Venus communicated with eight planets and her Midheaven. Unfortunately, a few of those contacts conversed in a difficult and traumatic way.

Venus Opposite Saturn – Serious love separates. She couldn’t get close enough to the ones she loved. There was always a distance and a hard lesson to learn. The men she loved were not available. Getting involved with married men, or men who were too old, much older (at least 7 years), or hard for her. More about this aspect type.

Venus Square Neptune
– False spiritual love. Loving men who are emotionally unavailable, wrong for her — men she saw potential in but who could not live up to her imagination. Love after or before its time — star crossed lovers. Unrequited love. Past lives karmic soulmate. More about this aspect.

Venus Semi-sextile Pluto – Powerful love. Jealous love. Possessive love. She held on to the ones she loved even if they were no good for her. She also attracted men who wanted to possess her. She was energized by this sado-masochistic love, at times and found opportunity to engage in it.

Article linking her to Jermaine Jackson.

Whitney’s 1985 single Saving All My Love For You, which tells the story of a woman’s romance with a married man, with the singer even hiring a lookalike of Jermaine for the footage. [A] source added: ‘The reason it ended was because Jermaine wouldn’t leave his wife – and Whitney was angry. The video for Saving All My Love For You was about all of that.’

After reading this article, I realized Whitney probably had challenging love aspects and so she did.

In 1985 (during Whitney’s heyday, and the year Whitney’s song was published) Robin Norwood published a book: Women Who Love Too Much — while this reflected the emerging nature of women’s issues within relationships during a boom in women’s liberation and career opportunities of the 1980’s, it was a perfect book describing Whitney Houston’s love entanglements.

In fact, here’s some chapters (of the Norwood book) that connect with her aspects:

“If I suffer for you, will you love me” – Venus Opposition or Square Saturn
“The need to be needed” – Venus Square Neptune, and Moon-Venus (Whitney has this too).
“Beauty and the beast” – Venus-Pluto
“When one addiction feeds another” – Venus-Neptune
“Dying for love” Venus-Pluto
“Good sex in bad relationships” Partly Venus-Pluto. Mars would be involved here too.
“Loving the man who doesn’t love you back” Venus Square or Opposition Saturn

Astrology: About Interceptions

Interceptions: “I have never yet had a client with an interception who wasn’t mastering their karmic failure and giving the gift indicated by the interception.” Aquarian Essence

“…The intercepted house polarity is the part of consciousness that the native feels like a complete failure about, when it is in fact the part of themselves that is developing the most.” Barbara Hand Clow

My rising sign is Capricorn. Pisces and Virgo are intercepted. I have no planets, signs, asteroids, or points in Aquarius except the part of fortune. My North Node in Pisces, 2nd house. Aquarius is on my 2nd house cusp.  I have Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, SN Virgo in the 8th house. I have double “Gemini/Sagittarius: Reason vs. Revelation” Mary Devlin.

“The lack of balance may be within the person’s own development or is suited to assist other’s with balancing this axis. ” Aquarian Essence

My biggest strength is deep communication (discovering), and it’s also my failure. But I feel compelled to teach others how to speak with authority, clarity, and bravery to themselves and to others (Mars on the 3rd house cusp, Chiron Aries). I don’t always do such a good job at that.

“The most important thing for a person with an interception to know is that there is no need for feeling like a failure or feeling guilty, which is often the case.” Aquarian Essence

Oh, ha, they’re good!!

Aquarian Essense says there’s a lack of communication and education that is projected on my love axis. That makes sense. Often there has been strain in regards to my daily living and working habits and the partner doesn’t communicate this to me until its too late. As I continue to read the article, AE suggests that it’s the ‘intercepted native’ that projects. In my case, I have been completely honest with lovers (as an adult) and they have deceived and lied to me. Communication of important details were not provided. So I’m not sure how that one works. Then again, I have the 5/11, 6/12 axis so that could be the difference.

“When looked at objectively, it will be clear that the axis is well on its way toward balance, especially by mid life.” Yes! Agreed.

Another interesting article from Rosicrucian.com about interceptions.

“As a result of an intercepted diameter in a chart there will be two pairs of houses covered by the same diameter. Wherever this “phenomenon” occurs, you will know that the houses concerned in this “duplication” represent experience-patterns on which the person concerned is “making up for past defaults;” Rosicrucian.com, Elman Bacher

I’d agree. I have often said: I must have done something horrible in a past life or even making wrong choices when I was younger to have to experience the communication hell I do, today. I do feel like I’m making a sacrifice and being of service because I myself, lacked communication skills and a voice when I was younger.  I also wasn’t entirely honest or had complete integrity, in my youth. (Note: the higher degree is on my 6th/12th axis and that’s where I probably have the most ‘projection’ with the polarity)

“If the second cusp is covered by the next sign in sequence, then we know that the person is destined in this incarnation to express a higher octave of quality of his past… No one ever exactly repeats a level from one incarnation to the next–upwardness is always a factor to be considered in karmic interpretation.” My intercepted sign is Pisces, I have North Node in Pisces, and Aquarius is on my 2nd house cusp.

I’ve said this about interceptions:
In some ways it feels like a stellium because it spans two house cusps. It makes talents and weaknesses overwhelming obvious. It has an intensity and overdone quality to it. The double sign indicates where prominent themes are at play. With having Gemini on the 5th and 6th house cusps, I LOVE my job. What I do for fun, I do for work. On the flip-side, what I do for work, I do for fun. So that means, I’m not always having fun or I’m not always working. A large part of my day is communicating — talking on the phone, by email, and learning. It makes me a bit of an information geek.

And after a conversation with another intercepted native (from twitter), we came to this conclusion as well:

My Aquarius energy is filtered through Pisces so I experience the emotions of an Aquarius but hidden.  It’s my Pisces heart that is electric. When I sort through my detachment and coldness and know what I think, it is often a very soft and lamb-like nature that emerges. All my Virgo signs get a Leo treatment. I am fair minded to my core but have Jupiter Libra that indicates that as well. :-) So I am creatively critical, and an analytical authority, or an authority on a subject – expert.

“…determine the possibilities of why one diameter may represent a “holding back” or a “promise of future development” in this incarnation. The duplicated diameters–when they are lined up with structure-sequence–will indicate which pair of houses represents a condition from the past that must be repeated–for complete fulfillment–in the present.” Rosicrucian.com, Elman Bacher

Here’s a link delineating the intercepted houses.

“Virgo/Pisces Axis or Sixth/Twelfth House Axis

If your Virgo/Pisces or sixth/twelfth house axis is intercepted it may take you quite some time to find a line of work which you find to be fulfilling. This disillusionment you feel in your day-to-day routine is destined to force you to question your spirituality and seek answers of a rather esoteric nature to help you better understand the life role you were born into.

You are an old soul who has experienced much in lives past and will find yourself bumping into people who you knew long ago. These rekindled friendships will add meaning to your life and keep you going during those times when you feel overwhelmed with trials.

Unfortunately, you will learn from experience that you must continually question the motives of those you meet casually because many will have agendas which are at cross purposes to your own. While secret enemies abound, these encounters will help you learn to keep your own council and look beyond the veil of the outer persona when judging a person’s true character.

You will in all probability have a part-time job or business in addition to your primary vocation which will bring you a little extra money as well as help to fulfill some of your self actualization needs.

You may at times feel as if you have heavy burdens because you will find that you have many obligations and responsibilities which keep you firmly grounded to the earth. While it can be depressing to find that you must tend to your day-to-day duties while it seems that others around you have ”

Nod!

Harmonics: Septiles — Spiritual power, divine downloads…

Notes drawn from AdZe: Septile – Spiritual power, divine downloads, self-knowledge, non-conforming harmony (like Venus / Jupiter / Trine)

“There is a whole family of septile aspects including the septile, bi-septile and tri-septile forming one, two and three sevenths of a circle respectively. Septiles are measured in denominations of fifty-one degrees twenty-five minutes, one hundred two degrees fifty one minutes five seconds and one-hundred-fifty-four degrees, seventeen minutes and two seconds. The septile family of aspects is very different. They divide the circle into one, two and three sevenths respectively. This is the first series of aspects that to not divide evenly. This is a somewhat irrational force of energy, something sacred and holy going on here. Much like the number seven, Septiles contain spiritual power and imply the possibility of cosmic intervention. Septiles indicate harmony and union though in a non-conforming way. These aspects can indicate extraordinary creative efforts at self-knowledge and ultimate understanding and can be a real turn on. Septiles resonate with Venus, Cardinal, Air and Libra energy.” AdZe MiXXe.

I have Mercury Septile Jupiter, Mars Tri-Septile Ascendant, Venus Tri-Septile North Node, and Sun Septile Uranus.

This aspect stimulates ‘divine downloads’ from the universal highway.

Divine insights or allowing the native to view the world (things and themselves too) in ways that few others do, is partly what this aspect does. One would expect the native to have had formal training, to arrive at what they do, but they haven’t!!

The Septile gives inspiration, is inspirational, or motivational. For example, Mercury Septile Jupiter can indicate “motivational speaking’ or writing ‘inspirational wisdom’. Sun Septile Uranus, an inspirational ‘role model’ for self-empowerment and “beating to your own drum”, and self-confidence or one that is inspired towards these pursuits.

Meditation or martial arts are especially helpful for any native who hasn’t tapped into the power of their Septiles, because it helps quiet or slow down energy to listen to / receive ‘divine downloads’.

Personality wise, it could indicate having an Autistic or Asperger’s type temperament but I haven’t tested this theory yet! Oh, I just found this Facebook note by astrologer David Rowan talking about how Septiles could be connected to this. I have mild dyslexia, by the way.

Do you have a Septile aspect?

Wishful Thinking: Getting Noticed

Maybe one day I’ll get noticed and not have to work so hard. My Virgo South Node (stellium) is tired of trying to prove my worth. Ahhh, North Node Pisces in the 2nd house says: Don’t bother. Let go! Trying to ‘prove something’ to another is bad for your self-esteem. But I also ask: Why am I not taken seriously at times? Is it because I’m bouncy?

Recent feedback (Solar Return Astrology Session)

“Strangely enough, I was going to reach out to you this evening and saw your note.

The interview was fine thanks but this evening at around 7 PM I received a call from my doctor stating that the stress test that I did last week shows that I have ischemia in my heart. Thank you soooooo much for strongly suggesting that I seek a medical checkup. I had done so prior to our sessions but after your suggestion I went back and pushed a little harder.

I am terrified but relieved that they finally found something and hopefully they will figure out why and how to fix it. I am very young to have such issues.

I just thought you’d like the feedback. As you explained, astrology is pretty accurate!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I will be forever grateful.

M.
