Have no fear, Saturn is here


Today, Saturn turns direct. This means, he is showing up fully to offer you the help you need most right now. To be clear, again, I love discussing Saturn because I know that Saturn is here to help us—even if he has a little bit of a tough delivery sometimes. My chart is also ruled by Saturn, so I might be a bit bias given that I hold so much of his energy. He is the one who will make sure you know exactly what you want and need and he is the only planet who can help you build the structures necessary to receive it. He isn’t subtle. He’s very clear and direct. When he’s around, he will help you to be clear and direct, too. Saturn’s rings are boundaries—they are also supports. Saturn has been retrograde for about 5 months. Retrogrades are reviews of a particular area of life—both the area of life represented by the planet in retrograde and the area of life represented by the sign in which the retrograde is occurring. Saturn Retrogrades are reviews of the structures in our lives—for work, for play, for relationships, for everything.

It makes sense that he is moving direct just following Monday’s eclipse. Many people are reconsidering their lives and how they want them structured. Saturn’s Retrograde helps us to understand how and why we need to restructure and reconsider the containers we use to run and define our lives. His direct motion gives us the motivation and the go-ahead to build the structures and containers that will best support us. Saturn loves helping those who help themselves. He loves helping people who do the work, are willing to do the work. If you’re ready to do the work and/or doing it, he will open the path for you. Miracles can happen. Synchronicities abound.

What are your intentions? What do you want to build more than anything else? What are ALL the things you want to build? Not just today, not just tomorrow, but for the rest of your life. This is the time to think about these things if you haven’t. As I remarked in my last post, this is the time to discern your destiny and make it happen—no matter what. Be wild. Go long. Anything can be planted right now. Saturn might have rings, but he’s a direct line. He does not take the circuitous route. When he’s involved, he wants you to be all in or get all out. This is the time to find that mentor, that coach, that therapist, that spiritual leader/advisor, shaman, elder, counselor who can take you to the next level, who can lead you to your destiny. None of us can walk this path alone. We all need help. The greatest spiritual advisors have spiritual advisors of their own. Even the Pope has a spiritual director. What is your dream? Who can get you there? Are you ready for your entire reality to shift? This life is a dream and never forget that you are made of stardust. You have the capacity to shine like the sun. Don’t let anyone dim all that shine. You’re beautiful! You’re radiant! Whoever the real you is, this world needs that person desperately. Go get ‘em! Do the work … let Saturn in. I promise you that he’s going to help you this time if you do.

Peace and Blessings,
