Saturn conjunct the Sun | report card time

let it snow by Natalia Ciobanu

The Sun and Saturn are sitting at exactly 18 degrees Sagittarius.

Once a year these big guys meet up and we get to see clearly what is really happening in our world and in the collective. Report cards are handed out now. A light (the Sun) is shown on reality (Saturn).

(Sagittarius rules politics and the story broke yesterday in the U.S. that the C.I.A. has confirmed Russia interfered in the U.S. election to help get Trump elected by hacking Clinton's campaign manager's emails. In the time of Saturn/Neptune dreams vs reality, I would take this as truth. It matters. If we receive any personal truth bombs now - I would trust those, too.)

If things are not going well, if stuff is falling apart, if we are beating our head against the wall - these are all signs we need to change direction. Now. We have strong support from Uranus for leap taking, turnarounds and pivots.

(NOTE - this doesn't guarantee a successful landing, Uranus only guarantees support to get us somewhere else)

If things are going well, if we have achieved something, there will be rewards now for a job well done. 

With Saturn (hard work, commitment, time, responsibility) so close to the Sun (our life force) there will be limits to whatever we are dealing with. On the other hand, with this all happening in Sagittarius sextiling Jupiter and Jupiter ruling Sagittarius - that limit could very well be the sky.

If our relationships are stifling or non-supportive we will feel it. This could be a time when we need to be strong for someone else. With everything happening in Sagittarius there is a higher purpose to whatever we are dealing with.

The good news, if things are not going well, is changes made now easily create different timelines. A new semester always starts after report cards are given out. We all get a fresh start. We don't get a do-over though - that report card is on its way home to Dad. Doing the same thing we did before will not work.

Doing something new gives the energies at play something to work with! Our muses grow tired of seeing us bang our heads against the wall, too. They whisper to us to go outside and rake the fallen leaves (stretched muscles create the space for us to stretch ourselves in new ways) while we stare transfixed at our computer screen.

I was born during one of these Saturn/Sun conjunctions (I have these planets within 1 degree in my Aquarius house) so can't really feel this energy clearly because I am always feeling it - it's background noise. It's like carrying a stern father around in my pocket - I think most people will be glad to set him down in a few days!

This is a good time to care for the basic structures of our life - the stuff that supports us.

We are living in a time of disintegrating safety nets (just like our ancestors did!), but there are things we can do to give ourselves a steadier ground to walk on. It could be as simple as cleaning our house and putting in place sustainable systems to keep it clean. The same could be said about our money. What astrological house holds 18 degrees Sagittarius in our natal chart? This area of life is being brought to our attention now.

The Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus transits happening now - are huge. I can't remember a time when so much powerful energy was coming together like this. There is destiny here. Some interesting babies will be making an appearance.

I still have that big post to write about the energies ahead. There is so much happening now and about to happen. Lots of twists and turns. Besides Saturn sitting with the Sun in Sagittarius sextiling Jupiter we've got a trine with Uranus and a square to Chiron. There is almost too much to talk about.

We are approaching a Full Moon in Gemini - if we think we have everything figured out, we can be assured we don't.

I'll be back this weekend to write about that. xo all
