Today the Sun and Saturn will be meeting at the 18th degree in Sagittarius. The Sun, our Ego, our Identity, the part of us that needs to shine to invigorate and energize us. Saturn, the structure of our consciousness, the Wise Elder, the Authority, the Disciplinarian, the last of the visible Planets to the naked eye. When these two meet, things can take on a serious nature. It can be a grounding force. Tipped too far in the Saturn scale, we may feel a heaviness, a burden, a blockage, a limitation. Best optimized, we can use this energy stay the course through life’s challenges, knowing that the wisdom comes from sticking to goal, the eventual mastery that comes from discipline and hard work. Saturn is the master-builder and understands that “Rome was not built in a day”.
Also in the mix is Uranus and the Moon. They are meeting up around the 20th degree of Aries. Like Sagittarius, this is another FIRE sign. Uranus rules flashes of insight, the higher mind, individuality and authenticity. As Uranus comes after Saturn in the sky, it breaks down the concrete, desiring to stimulate “breakthroughs” as it asks us to not follow the herd, but rather offer our individual voice. The Moon is our emotional consciousness, our feelings, the Heart. With Uranus and the Moon in Aries, we can feel quickness to our emotions. For Aries is a fast and furious sign whose aim is to be courageous, to have the fearlessness to enter the ring, to experience a victory through jumping in and out of the fire as needed. With Uranus fanning the flames with “flashes” of inspiration, and Aries “jack be nimble, jack be quick, jack jump over the candlestick” kind of movement, we are advised to let the genius within arise. Let the heart feel any breakthroughs, any new ideas, attitudes or emotions. Just be forewarned to not let your emotions explode under this influence.
With the Sun and Saturn, flowing with this Moon/Uranus connection, we can keep ourselves grounded. Sagittarius is the seeker of the meaning of life so we can tune in to what that is for us now. Aligning our Head(Sun) with our Heart(Moon), and using the fiery, passionate energy to help us carve a road best suited for our journey.
Be well, stay warm, and hugs to all! Peace, Jen
