It is here, Saturn has moved back into Scorpio in its retrograde movement from Sagittarius. Sagittarius’ element is fire that is ignited by a quest for theoretical information, fed by a greater sense of what may be going on beyond the earthy physical existence. By zodiac order, Sagittarius is after Scorpio where we take the deep dive into the unconscious, the shadow, and places of intimacy with ourselves and others. The transition of the Planet Saturn who commands discipline and structural order leading to laws and firm boundaries, has shifted his energy out of passionate, adventurous and optimistic Sagittarius to focused interrogative, powerful, and psychological Scorpio. In Scorpio, we approach living primarily from ground zero where we hold our root emotions that can unknowingly guide our expression of who we are or what we are trying to heal. We are now revisiting this emotional psychological tone that we left on December 24, 2014 when Saturn moved into Sagittarius. The last time Saturn was retrograde or defined as “spinning backwards” in relation to the Earth, was July 20, 2014 at 16 degrees Scorpio that began Mar 3, 2014 at 23 degrees Scorpio. Saturn entered Scorpio October 2012. The questions have come from looking “out there” or above and beyond in Sagittarius to “in here” or below, and what lies beneath tugging at your psyche. The gift of Saturn is that he is noble and orderly, providing a stable point to launch into what could be some murky terrain. Whether we actually are aware of the murkiness, it can have a very powerful influence in our lives, refusing to be swept under the carpet when the going gets tough or we are faced with emotional dramas. Saturn holds the steady and contained life raft to allow us to discover these subconscious motives with a respected elder by our side. His greatest desire is for us to be committed and responsible to learn the lessons that are invoked in us through our sometimes uncomfortable emotional impulses. Saturn has given us the past six months in Sagittarius to discover what we really stand for and explore that which we may know or think we know regarding our belief system. Now he has decided we may need to drop in again and have a psychological “check up”. Are we taking responsibility for the power dynamics that exist in our lives? Are we truly honest with what makes our psychology tick and get triggered? How can we hold the magnifying glass up to the emotional imprints that influence our psyche, and then dissect them, challenge them, in order to build a cohesive landscape reflective of what we are now? Saturn will not be in Scorpio again for another 29 years, so this is an opportunity to hold space around our deep selves and let it heal. Over the next 3 months, Saturn may guide you to some intense places. If we can remember to proceed with discipline into the shadow looking to learn rather than run, you may find the scary monsters we have constructed are purely little pests that may start to diminish their influence on our psyches. When you find yourself in an emotionally uncomfortable place, try to dig deeper. For example, if you find yourself completely outraged by a car cutting you off and just can’t seem to let it go, what really may be going on for you? Setup a safe and contained space where you can explore these feelings, remembering that Lord Saturn is trying to help you rebuild these myths that may no longer serve the evolving you.
