Tomorrow Saturn arrives at 29° Libra and begins the final countdown to Scorpio on 5 October. As it does I’m preparing for the final pass over my Libra Sun and as usual, it feels like it has been a very long haul. Saturn has a way of stretching time out rather than compressing it like Uranus does. *grin*
At this time in my country we are in the midst of election season and the electorate is almost evenly split. This phenomenon has been growing ever since Saturn entered Libra in October 2009 and in the summer of 2010 when we saw the first major cardinal T-Square with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, this effect intensified. Optimist that I am I believed people would be able to enter into a spirit of compromise but instead the divisiveness increased until we reached the almost complete stalemate of the past year. I am very, very curious to see what will unfold once Saturn enters ruthless, pragmatic Scorpio who is noted for not tolerating foolishness. Given Scorpio rules the eighth house of other people’s money (read “taxes”) and transformation, measures will be taken to break the stalemate. One thing I’m reasonably sure of is there will lots of unhappy people . . . on both sides. Libra often strives to please everyone whilst Scorpio is capable of choosing to protect the most vulnerable at all costs. We’ll see!
Living with an Aries who’s Sun has transiting Uranus hovering within a degree or so has been interesting lately. Yesterday he gave his current employer a piece of his mind in front of me! Justified to some extent as the guy has not shown up or communicated in a timely fashion plus he has serious prioritization issues. However, I winced when my Aries referred to the man’s wife as “that”. Yes, she totally dominates her husband and screws with what my Aries sees as needing
to get done before snow flies but geez. Control issues surfacing all over the place . . . Pluto in Cappy is currently transiting my husband’s tenth house. We’ll see what the fallout is from this over the next week or so.
Now I need to get back to work before the next interruption strikes. There have been so many I’m almost used to them. Saturn feels heavier now and I’m feeling my responsibilities keenly. We still have a great deal of smoke here due to the local wildfires, causing a sensation of weight on my chest. Why would it not surprise me to see this clear out for once and for all when Saturn enters Scorpio! We’re due for a shift in weather patterns starting sometime next week.
How is everyone doing out there? OK? Or is there some part of your life demanding attention?
