What are you trying to master? What are your goals? What do you keep reaching for despite set backs and adversity? The Sun and Saturn square off into tomorrow and we’re feeling a pressure to do better, to push higher and make something of ourselves.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s update, Saturn is the planet in chart of making sure we become our best selves — mature, responsible adults that take the responsibilities that hold together our families, our relationships, our communities, and our world. When you reflect on your own life this week, where do you feel Saturn, like the hand of a parent, showing you healthy limits and boundaries?
Saturn also helps us define. It can bring events and even relationships into sharp focus. As a result, you may be getting a clearer picture this of what you want versus what you don’t want — especially as Venus, the planet of value, picks up on the energy of Saturn as well. We may be asking ourselves, it worth it?
Lastly, the Moon is in Gemini today, so we’re thinking, moving, and traveling. Gemini is an inquisitive sign; it wants a lot of options, so we may be looking at our choices today. But as the Moon faces off with Saturn into tomorrow, we may be pushed to make a very clear choice.
PS — I’m teaching a workshop and webinar on understanding Saturn. Titled “Facing Saturn — How to Find Maturity and Purpose at Any Age“, it’s a look at the different points in our life when we have to face Saturn. If you’re 28-30 years old, this workshop is especially for you. You’re going through the “Saturn Return,” an initiation that happens for everyone when Saturn literally returns to the spot in the sky it occupied at the moment you were born after 29 long years.
If you’re in New York City, there’s an in-person workshop on Tuesday, September 26. I’m doing a webinar version for those of you who are outside of New York on Saturday, September 30. It doesn’t matter how much astrology you know. I’ll break things down and show you how to gain a deeper understanding of what you came here to work on and achieve in your life.
