From now until Saturn leaves Libra for Scorpio on October 5, I will be living with him right in my face via a conjunction with first my Chiron and then my Sun. Recently Saturn began reintroducing me to my limitations, ever so much fun.
I have a natal Jupiter-Saturn square with my poor Sun right in the middle of it. This creates an ongoing tension between Saturn’s rather dour outlook and Jupiter’s buoyant optimism. Saturn transits such as the current conjunction to my Sun bring up the need to recognize I do have limitations and to please respect those. It has been brought home to me recently there is only one of me and despite my twelfth house Jupiter’s need to be there for others, lines must be drawn.
By the way, it is that Jupiter-Saturn square being impacted the most by Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. Uranus is trine my Saturn and Pluto sextile my Jupiter. Even though Jupiter is not a personal planet nor is Saturn, I still am feeling this transit via their aspects to my Sun . . . unsettling to say the least. It is the messiness of having the planet of restriction (Saturn) being uplifted by the planet of pure chaos (Uranus) whilst expansive Jupiter is supported by controlling Pluto that makes me feel frustrated at times and a little crazy. This week’s Mercury and Mars aspects agitated the whole thing once more as well as Venus in Cancer squaring my Sun before entering Leo tomorrow.
Through all of this, it is Saturn’s voice telling me to take it one tiny step at a time making the most sense. Don’t go for the big project or make a bold statement (Jupiter), go for the simple, direct solution. As I look ahead I see the need to seriously reevaluate my time management and quit flying by the seat of my pants so much . . . Jooopiter!!! After all, I do know the value of establishing good habits . . . I added two sessions a week working out with light weights to improve my bone density over the past year. Perfectly timed with my Saturn transit and the small but steady improvements are typical. Saturn’s help at its best. 😀
