Perspective.

  

Fact :: Sometimes I stare at a blank page and wonder what to do with it. Tonight, after a 5 mile jog/walk + no ‘aha’ inspiration, I thought, “ok where am I now and what does it feel like?” It felt like staring into the abyss… inside of a box. So I made a (meta)square first. I am a fan of possibility, and Creation, and allowing what wants to come up to come up… and that is what moved from there. Landscapes. Key to perspective. Thinking outside of the box. The “box” of a blank page. Anything is possible. And, don’t box a Leo like me in. These are the random phrases that popped through as I went along. 💕

Irony.

FACT :: It is EARTH DAY 🌏 2018. And, yes, those are post-it notes made from trees… collectively spelling out “Tree.” There are notes + reminders on them, like oxygen, waste, go green, 4/22 = 365, etc. Don’t worry, I will be reusing each and every piece of paper used here to make this random art. ALSO head over to VOID + ARROW for potential entry into a poetry book : In Harmony, the Forest. Entry fees go into production costs + the rest to charity! Now through September 1st!

Stuck.

FACT :: Balloons filled with helium generally move on this planet. This balloon is stuck on paper. Too bad. I am also stuck on finishing this random art. Usually something just floats in… but I got nothing.

Light.

FACT :: I like triangles. I like asymmetry – even in sound, always have. I started this piece last night with the idea of fingerprints + magnetics in mind. Kind of toying with my second Oracle Deck – Magnetic Identity. How this one turned out is an eery reminder of the US dollar + school + The Illuminati. Yep. Well. That’s what can happen with basics, I guess? Also it is officially Taurus season… this random creation was NOT planned to line up that way. Normal life for me.

ART | I | FACTS – No. 1

Ants.

 

FACT :: Last night I dreamed of an ant becoming a spider becoming a robot who moved in circles advertising stain cleaning. It was Halloween. It only made sense to do quick stipple drawing… like the ants coming together to form or become bigger versions of themselves. They would. The message from Ant comes from Animal Speak, by Ted Andrews.

Neptune.

Neptune says “I UNIONIZE.”

 

 

Anything Neptunian = obscurity. Enough said.

NEPTUNE IN ARIES

Neptune in Aries is about following the fire within to better the Whole. This energy can lean towards spiritual narcissism on a level since any “mission” in life may be unknowingly more ego-oriented than Higher Self aligned. Then again, it may be both – and for good reason in the Big Picture. Any noticeable pattern of confusion in life tends to be entangled with anger, assertion, and action overall. Mars is the ruler of Aries, and it is a certain type of consort with the Sun – the Will. The Will on its own is great… Mars’ energy lends the activating force for the Will. For certain vibrations, this energy can actually be quite beneficial in that it can completely dissolve boxes related to identity. Once the identity is surrendered, there is a felt limitless in life. We haven’t seen this energy pop up in natal charts since the mid-to-late 1800s; we will get to dive in again around 2025!

NEPTUNE IN TAURUS

Neptune in Taurus may entice the collective energy to bring the spiritual to the material, or the material to the spiritual. What’s the difference? Good luck… you’re in Neptune land. Without going into too much detail, this energy asks to “keep building.” Over and over again, that’s what I hear. The Neptune in Aries energy will offer glimpses into how this part of the overall frequency will flow (if it can be captured at all – again, dealing with the ever-illusive Neptune). The late 1800s were the last time anyone lived the experience of this energy on the Earth plane; it will come around again near 2040. That being said, I won’t go into much more since we have more to deal with at the moment…!

Neptune IN Gemini

The Neptune in Gemini experience is one we haven’t had since the turn of the 20th century (early 1900s). It won’t show up again until around 2050… but I think it is beneficial to sense the patterns that are evolving – as we evolve collectively. What happened during that time? I cannot go through all of it… but what I am seeing in my 3rd eye is an exponential graphing. Something during this time “took off” and we will see it shift when we revisit it in the mid-2000s. I imagine (very Neptunian to imagine) the new generation born with this energy to be re-configuring how we communicate. It could be something as simple and innocuous as “changing the gridlines.” And, by then, that will be more simple to do. It could be something bigger like a natural + collective navigation into spiritual communication… with most everyone more innately aware of their capacities on that level. Think : telepathy. Truly, this energy beckons the phrase, “the sky’s the limit” – which isn’t even a solid phrase… thanks to Neptune!

NEPTUNE IN CANCER

Neptune in Cancer can be quite tied to the rhythms of “home” – whatever that means to the individual. We haven’t seen this placement in a natal chart since the first part of the 20th century (up to roughly 1915). We can surmise from the collective activity at that time though… and, we may get a glimpse into the spiraling change of this energetic form that will show up again in the second half of the 21st century. What I see from the most recent time period is a well-known event – the sinking of the Titanic. With an idealistic grandiosity (Neptune in Taurus + Neptune in Gemini), a group of Souls came together to create this ship. A natural, earthly, watery force took the whole thing down – and a group of Souls left this plane of existence. The message here is to respect our Mother Earth + her power… that theme appears in my mind (at present) when we energetically “go there” again. It may be wise to start shifting things NOW!

NEPTUNE IN LEO

Neptune in Leo, oh one of the great Muses. There are most likely still people living now that have this natal imprint… this lasting frequency. Anyone in the 90s or early 100s now are included! Crazy to think about right? Up to roughly 1928, we as a global community experienced a lot of murky change with this generational force. It was about creating something “more” – whether consciously or unconsciously. Here was a period of great artistry + some mastery on the spiritual/ego levels, both. For example. Gandhi was arrested during a Neptune in Leo phase. He was born with Neptune in Aries (read above). It was like a war of ego + spirit met in a human body… and, he was arrested for sedition : his words supposedly “incited rebellion against the authorities (state, monarch, etc.).” Yep.. That’s Neptune in Leo for you. The Will + imagination + Higher Self connection is strong for these folks. They may be teaching us how to better create our Reality here.

Neptune IN Virgo

Neptune in Virgo is an interesting balancing act! Virgo + Pisces (Neptune’s sign) are facing each other with this energy. The Neptune in Virgo native last arrived around 1928 – 1942. These frequencies are still around, and they may be still delivering information on health, wellness, unity, etc. They may be extremely sensitive to the planet itself. Anything floating around – seen or unseen – can be absorbed through the mental body, the emotional body, and/or the physical body. That may be why there is a leaning towards finding ideal health – and many options may be explored. Allergies are common – often illusive with no consistent pattern until alignment with the Higher Self is met more. The dissolution of details may be key for those finding a certain obsession there. The search for “answers” can be moved through a spiritual discipline… and the ultimate personal answer is generally both unique + collectively-oriented at the same time.

NEPTUNE IN Libra

The Neptune in Libra individual is unconsciously and/or consciously on a mission to provide equality. As the second air sign in the trilogy of the Air element, there may be a major contention with whatever balance is – on multiple levels. On a personal level (depending on House placement + connection with other luminaries), there may be a spiritual contract involving the development of harmonizing the masculine + feminine principles. It may be about experiencing polarity to a certain extreme… in order to find new balance – both internally + externally. The “black-and-white” theme comes on strong for these folks, as they are meant to, ultimately, leave a trace of information on how to blend better. To be comfortable with the grey. The most recent Neptune in Libra natives were born between 1942 -1956. Look at all the politicians/diplomats born during that time… and the energy may become clear for what we are experiencing now!

NEPTUNE IN scorpio

The Neptune in Scorpio individual may be consumed with mystery. Here we have the illusive + elusive meeting the depths + secrecy. These individuals, born between roughly 1957 – 1970, bring the Underworld to the Light. This time period enabled foci on what some still deem “conspiracy theories.” Nope. There is Truth in what was uncovered, and we will likely experience a nebulousness around this energy for a while. UFOs, aliens, government cover-ups… we feel this frequency bubbling up more and more as Neptune currently traverses through its home/companion sign, Pisces. The main thing to take note of here is the water trilogy + its cyclical undertones (see Neptune in Cancer, above + Neptune in Pisces, below). Life and death become more spiritually attuned with this energetic field. What “humanity” is comes into objective consideration… an alien race to “other” alien races is key to realize. What does it all mean? That’s the question this generation brought forth more… and their current carries it forward as other alignments light up the dark, over and over again.

neptune IN SAGITTARIUS

Neptune in Sagittarius energy came in relatively recently (1970 – 1984 or so). The generation of people born with this frequency were and are apart of a collective consciousness movement aimed at refining how we view freedom, truth + Truth. The inherent nebulousness that Neptune energy carries mixed with the freedom-loving + exploratory Sagittarius archetype can show up in a multitude of ways. I tend to call this the ADHD generation because there seems to be a “lack of focus” going on in these experiencers. Without commenting on the rise in ADHD medication, I will share that the supposed “lack of focus” in this generation is an experience that asks for awareness. In other words, becoming more aware of things IS the focus – however scattered that awareness appears to be. The Neptune in Sagittarius native is equipped to feel into the intuitive faculties more. That means taking in a lot of information at once and distilling it into some truth, or, even larger Truth. The knowing that both truths + Truths change (through perspective, through “time,” etc.) tends to be a given for this frequency. Still, that doesn’t stop the energy from seeking + finding expression… over and over again. These are the liberators + manifestors involved in the dawning of a New Age.

NEPTUNE IN CAPRICORN

Neptune in Capricorn is… my imprint. Disclaimer: My 12th House is 29 degrees Sag, and I have my Neptune at 1 degree of Capricorn. So the nebulousness of Neptune gets washed in a tub of Pisces (its home)… with a little bit of Capricorn on top. Or bottom? Somewhere in the middle? All of the above? Who is in “control” here? I am still figuring all of that out. With that said, my personal experience + objective observation of others holding this frequency seem to share a main ingredient: traversing through judgment + turning dreams into reality. The key for this energy is to navigate through the Neptunian abyss with a clear Capricorn goal or two in mind. Imagine climbing a mountain through fog – that’s Neptune in Capricorn. That image may be filtered through whatever the individual House placement is for the native. It may not be clear what’s ahead, but the knowing that there is a peak to reach simply asks for the climber to slow down along the way… to see and appreciate the details as they unfold. Coming off the heels of Neptune in Sagittarius, this energy is about the journey + exploration… with a (hopefully) solid + practical application for what was learned. Is the struggle real? Or is it only as real as we allow it to be? That’s a question these natives may be able to aid in answering.

NEPTUNE IN AQUARIUS

Neptune in Aquarius – they’re baaaaack! This generation arrived between 1998 – 2012, or so. These are the innovative, creative rebels of our current era. On a collective level, we felt this energy sweep through those of us already here. The Internet was truly born… and it is in bloom. The bitcoin made an appearance. Robots + other expansions on technology became a thing. The idea of Artificial Intelligence in general showed up – on the philosophical, psychological + practical arenas. Older energies are still parsing through “how to catch up” in a lot of ways… particularly in the governmental realm. Here we have two transpersonal frequencies combining at full force to bring in the NEW. Unusual things come with the territory for the Neptune in Aquarius native; and, generally the “unusual” will become ‘the norm’ for the collective on some level or another. It takes a keen eye to see how previous cycles inform what is here + what is coming soon… can you sense it? The idea of “copyright” + “property rights” + rights in general are one piece of the current wave of energy. What else can we glean from previous cycles – particularly from Neptune in Libra onward? Feel free to share your thoughts/comments!

Neptune IN PISCES

Neptune in Pisces is at home! We are still in the midst of welcoming in this new frequency. Hindsight is 20/20, right? Let’s check that saying in a decade or so (2026 +). In the mean time… what have we circulated energetically up to NOW? How might this new generation be informing us? Neptune in Pisces feels like the return of a marked “ending.” Of course that is rather obscure since we are dealing with both Neptune + Pisces… and the whole idea of Time is a ridiculous illusion anyhow. Those born with this frequency may help us to see illusion for what it is. There is a heightened sensitivity + awareness embedded in this imprinting. Natives may absorb + mirror vibrations both seen and unseen, for a collective shift – a supposed ending to some other way of Being. Clarity is in polarity to the fog that this energy holds… so it is through mindfulness that we may see it all. Particular access to the “big picture” may be common for individual born during this movement of energy – and the House placement + aspecting can show how + where they may contribute to that said “big picture.” The hard part for these Souls may be in a knowing that All is One while living a confusingly “separate” existence as a human. Then again, that’s where various paths in spirituality come in. A connection to the Soul, the Spirit, etc. tends to be more heavily experienced… unconsciously + consciously, both. Do you see these themes unfolding throughout the collective? I know I do!

Uranus.

URANUS says “I LIBERATE + INNOVATE.”

 

Uranus is Saturn turned on its side. It is a transpersonal planet standing for progress in quite unexplored territory. It catalyzes new – and sometimes quite sudden – movement or change… both individually + collectively. Out with the old (Saturn); in with the new (Uranus). The Uranian archetype is the Higher Mind + the great revolutionary.

URANUS IN ARIES

Uranus in Aries is generally about revolutions of the Self. Depending on where this transpersonal planet shows up the individual’s natal chart, any experiencer may go through rounds and rounds of change with regard to identity. The energy suggests that impulsivity may be on “high” for these folks because there is such conviction in one’s assertion abilities. In fact, the Uranus in Aries native may appear to be quite ruthless! Again, that depends on Uranus’ connection to other luminaries + the experiencer’s house placement for the energy. How the energy is channeled and expressed is up to their Higher Mind. Regardless, one might expect any generation of people with this archetype to be fiercely independent in their own right. Individuals with this frequency are often pioneers in and for collective change – the kind that, at the very least, benefits the Self! Feel free to learn more about this energy + yours in a reading…

URANUS IN TAURUS

Uranus in Taurus is generally engaged with various revolutions on the material plane. That includes finances, beauty, art, or anything sensory (particularly touch), and the Earth itself. People born with Uranus in Taurus tend to be experiencers of great ups and great downs. For example, the United States was going through The Great Depression during a Uranus in Taurus period. So while those already here got to experience that time… those born during that time basically carry that type of imprinting with them internally. How the frequency is channeled and expressed is up to the individual’s Higher mind connection. Some may be born with sensory sensitivities. Some may naturally become activists for the Earth (with focus on greed and/or waste) or channelers of new forms of artistic work or expression. Some may even be the lottery winners of the world. Uranus is already a kind of up-and-down energy; when funneled through Taurus, there is usually something going on within the collective that demands change on the material level. We are headed for another Uranus in Taurus revolution in May of 2018 – can you feel it? I know I can! Further details for YOU in a reading here!

URANUS IN GEMINI

The Uranus in Gemini native tends to have a focus on progressing the mental plane of existence. People born with Uranus in Gemini may be the bringers of new technologies because they know how the mind operates + they know how it may gather more information more quickly. They may be fast talkers, mentally scattered, and/or geniuses. Uranus is lightning bolt energy already – it is like the “aha!” planet. The individual experiencing Uranian energy in Gemini will filter information uniquely, but like everyone else, they will channel + share how to look at things with some originality. They may be eccentric or highly individualistic writers, speakers, speech writers, spiritual channelers, etc. It is all about communication – and the Higher Mind connection will likely come through strongly for the Uranus in Gemini native! Further detail in a unique reading…

URANUS IN CANCER

Uranus in Cancer generations tend to have an interesting connection to home, family, roots, and the internal emotional compass. The emotional world is often heightened regardless, and if channeled well, the Uranus in Cancer native has a lending hand in re-directing emotions into something “new.” The new may change the family dynamic as much as the family dynamic changes them. There may be ancestral history to change, and a newly re-written story may emerge for collective Soul progress. This energy is about a revolution of the “roots” – whatever they may be. There is a clear back-and-forth energy here, which is a universal motif in a lot of ways… but people with this type of frequency tend to have a stronger focus on it all. Think early 1950s. Essentially, Uranus in Cancer contains an inherent tension + a possibly felt obligation to make waves… both internally and externally. That’s how this energy flows – between precise science or logic and the fluidity of emotional experience. Further detail in a reading…

URANUS IN LEO

Uranus in Leo energy may be experienced as something rather ethereal that shifts the collective consciousness of the Will. We have varying beliefs on what “the Will” actually is since we are continually parsing through what concepts like the “psyche” or the “Creator” are all about. Is it inside? Outside? Both? Neither? The Uranus in Leo generation may unconsciously + consciously re-direct focus to those types of questions. It is a certain mix of archetypal energy that can be quite empowering – no matter how we land with it. As an individual, the Uranus in Leo native may go through things in life that embolden them to take on more of a leadership role – in any and all areas of experience. The concept of creation may be owned more responsibly… in other words, the idea that each of us is a Creator may become realized + more intentionally worked with on various levels. The idea of creativity is key here, no matter how it is filtered. Receive further detail on YOUR energy in a personalized reading, Creator! 

URANUS IN VIRGO

Uranus in Virgo may show up in a few noticeable ways. The mental activity that is Mercury-driven may lend itself toward grounding/rooting… or it may scatter itself all around the original focus and lose sight of where anything even began! That’s Uranus + Virgo for you. The individual Uranus in Virgo experiencer may be painfully aware of an internal and/or external warring of opposites going on. The tensions are usually based on stories or ideas or voices that are collected + pieced together over time. It may be wise to avoid going down a rabbit hole with this energy. The perpetuation of any single cell of information can easily be twisted – generated from what feels like two worlds. Then again… that same twisted-ness carries great potential for bringing something completely new and innovative to the world. Essentially, there is a delicate balance for the Uranus in Virgo native – and for the generations experiencing this energy. Think all of the 1960s. It is one thing to have an idea take off an lead a life of its own; it is another to have an idea fester and breed more of its own assumptions and presumptions and speculations into Reality. Learn more in your unique reading!

URANUS IN Libra

The Uranus in Libra individual tends to be about revolutionizing collective relations.The information that comes through these individuals can become something like the archetypal role of the diplomat – seeking peace + justice for all on a global scale. Although Uranus is a transpersonal/collective luminary, each individual will filter and direct the energy uniquely; Uranus is also a link to the Higher Mind. On a personal level, the Uranus in Libra native may have erratic, sudden (beginning and/or ending), or eccentric partnerships – romantic or otherwise. They may be called to focus + balance their own minds, which may send out a ripple effect somehow. More insight into the where + the how for this energy’s expression can be understood through the natal House placement. Regardless, the overall strength in mediating skills – internally + externally – generally ripens over time for the Uranus in Libra individual. Learn more through your natal chart reading!

URANUS IN SCORPIO

The Uranus in Scorpio native may go through frequent and intense changes during their lifetime. Both Uranus and Scorpio act as sirens for change… the difference is that Uranus is a rather left-brained frequency, while Scorpio tends to be a heavily right-brained activity. As with any other placement, Uranus in Scorpio can find expression in a myriad of forms. This dynamic duo deals with power structures – on both a personal + collective level. That may mean the Uranus in Scorpio individual has a compelling desire for some position of power and/or some drive for emotional freedom. No matter the identified + intentional path, one might expect there to be a number of upheavals along the way, and collective healing may result… for the Uranian energy is the ultimate leader in the mix. In short, the Uranus in Scorpio native carries a certain signature that attracts and marks progressively transformative experiences – particularly on the emotional level. Learn more about your unique distillation of this energy in a reading

URANUS IN SAGITTARIUS

Uranus in Sagittarius marks a particular revolution of the Mind. Those born with this frequency tend to have an open, original, expansive, and perhaps even gluttonous range of interest with relation to spirituality, philosophy, Higher Mind, and the collective consciousness. The call to adventure + a pioneering spirit may be quite strong for the Uranus in Sagittarius native. Both Uranus and Sagittarius are archetypes that connect through spontaneity in their modes of expression. When blended a certain way, people born with this influence can become quite cosmopolitan! These are the truth-seekers on overdrive. The word philanthropic comes to mind strongly for this frequency… the Uranus in Sagittarius individual may feel like they are on a mission to affect + ultimately effect positive change for the collective consciousness somehow. The downside to this type of energy may show up in those that go to extremes and get “stuck” there somehow. Generally, however, that is not the case as Uranus in Sagittarius will make sure to keep things moving! Receive your natal chart reading for more details on this energy + more…

URANUS IN CAPRICORN

Uranus in Capricorn can be a rather tense dynamic to navigate. As mentioned earlier, Uranus is Saturn turned on its side. Saturn’s horizontal rings starkly contrast the vertical rings we see for Uranus from our earthly perspective. Here we have the Aquarian planet (Uranus) seemingly held captive by the “old” Capricorn (Saturn) influence. It is important to note the overall cycle here… people born with this frequency come after Uranus in Sagittarius energy + before Uranus in Aquarius energy. Uranus in Capricorn is an energy that makes us slow down before we jump into the next collective paradigm shift. Think early 1990s + The Internet explosion. Uranus in Capricorn can show us how to take what we’ve recently gathered, and flip it into whatever will be “good for business.” It is the re-cognition point with Uranian energy. For the individual born with this imprinting, the practical + proper energy (Capricorn) may feel like a weight for the naturally freedom-oriented + unconventional luminary (Uranus). It can feel like a burden to bear, or at least a bit of a drag for the individual experiencer – particularly after the Uranian energy has moved onto another sign (or two, or three, or four…). Still, after some experience + struggle, the Uranus in Capricorn native can, will be, or already is the boss of new business. Feel free to learn more about your energetic filter in a natal chart reading!

URANUS IN AQUARIUS

Uranus in Aquarius is at home! The Uranus in Aquarius individual will most likely have an easier time with their own Uranian energy, regardless of the natal chart placement. Even if the chart is heavily “personal” or themed toward “the past” somehow, this energy helps to move the native along on their unique journey. They may have a more palpable connection to their own Higher Mind. The major themes for Aquarius are highlighted here: individualistic, aloof, friendly, collective-oriented, humanitarian-focused, and more. The House placement gives greater insight + clarity into how this energy is showing up for the individual, but regardless of personal connection… the frequency is a part of the collective consciousness that wants to support + cater to the overall progress at work. Think late 1990s – early 2000s. The groups of Souls incarnated with this imprint essentially help to further whatever was agreed upon up to that point (e.g., The Internet). Look at a few previous Uranian placements to filter what resonates as far as what may have been built (Uranus in Capricorn, Uranus in Sagittarius, Uranus in Scorpio…). And, learn more in your unique natal chart reading!

URANUS IN PISCES

Uranus in Pisces can be about both ideals + denials – collectively + personally. Due to the general empathic quality that Pisces suggests, there is a potential for helping or hurting anything along the way… here we have a revolution of Reality. This frequency is quite necessary to experience – in order to cut through the BS and see the Whole for what it is. Uranus is the Higher Mind. When it navigates through Piscean waters, we reach a point where illusions become more noticeable. The Uranus in Pisces native will be more prone to taking on the collective energy – at any point in their life. When they are born, their imprinting suggests a certain sensitivity to what is going on… and often the NOW becomes more felt as time dissolves. Individuals from this generation may be extremely objective observers of the global/universal/dimensional/etc. realms. When channeled well through their own connection to Higher Mind, the Uranus in Pisces native may bring us awakenings on various levels. Their energy has a ripple effect, which can penetrate timelines – both “previous” and “future.” We are still experiencing their energy now… and always will. More on this imprint – for those going out + those that recently came in: receive your unique natal chart reading here!

Saturn.

SATURN says “I TEACH.”

 

Saturn ultimately teaches us where we have the opportunity to free ourselves. It teaches us where we are blocked or bound. It calls on us to face fear and turn our weakness into strength. We grow from Saturn’s lessons – however painful they may be.

SATURN IN ARIES

Saturn in Aries is not an easy placement; then again, anything Saturnine is not necessarily easy. Since Mars is associated with Aries, essentially this energy lends itself to a block in all things Marsian: action on behalf of the Will, assertion, anger, self-confidence, etc. In other words, the person with Saturn in Aries may appear to lack self-assertion, be preemptively defensive due to fear of being attacked, appear unselfish, turn anger inwards, and have blockages in showing vulnerability. Essentially, the “me-first” fire of Aries is stifled by Saturn. However, if Saturn’s energy is faced head-on, the Saturn in Aries native has a lovely opportunity to actually be clear on identity and become “first” in many ways. House placement is important for any planet in astrology – it offers focus on the ‘where’ the energy shows up. Where is your Saturn in Aries? Learn more through a reading with me if you can will yourself to!

SATURN IN TAURUS

Saturn in Taurus energy can be a teller of that good old rags-to-riches story. That can mean a story of struggle and neglect early in life turned into a life of luxury, love and peace later on. That can also mean a story of learning what is truly valuable + what truly offers security to the individual – not the cultural/societal stories we are sold (if we buy them). That’s the key to freedom for the Saturn in Taurus native: to consciously “buy” things based on a strong internal compass connected to Love. The fear (Saturn) stems from a desire for possession. From literal possessions or material things to less tangible concepts, like security. Greed is often attributed with this energy – whether internally or externally; in greed, there is fear, and in fear, we meet Saturn. Can you face your humanity and find riches in what you truly value? That is the question that Saturn in Taurus asks. If you want to dig deeper, book a natal chart reading with me here.

SATURN IN GEMINI

The Saturn in Gemini native may have trouble breathing. Literally and/or figuratively. Since Mercury is associate with Gemini, this energy basically blocks all things mercurial: the mind, the intellect, the hands, the voice, the lungs, etc. Gemini is about communication – that flow of information in + information out. It is about taking in new knowledge, which generally becomes quite layered over time as the pace of the energy demands an accrual of a vast amount of information. Add a dose of Saturn to the mix, and the naturally curious energy of a modern-day Gemini somehow experiences a dammed-up Internet. Parental (or governmental) blocks working overtime to try to control what is fed to the recipient. Saturn in Gemini is a serious one (like all Saturnine energy), and if anything appears to be too “superficial,” it just won’t fly. The freedom ticket for the individual with Saturn in Gemini is to be open + curious about everything. How do you get there? Face your fear, wherever it is placed. Check out more with an in-depth look at your natal chart – if you are curious enough, of course.

SATURN IN CANCER

Saturn in Cancer is a difficult placement for the emotional body. Those born with Saturn in Cancer tend to come from broken homes, or homes where full access to the feeing of security + protection are not felt. There is somehow a block to familial connection with this placement. The overall energy can lend itself to a fear of emotional intimacy – and yet, it is that very thing that is longed for. These individuals want a happy home + a happy family; however, they may not know what that really is. That’s their key, though. Usually after searching for security, protection, roots, or a “tribe” somehow, the Saturn in Cancer native will ultimately learn that they must rely on their inner reality. Buying vast amounts of land or a bunch of homes isn’t the true security they are ultimately searching for. Basically, any type of outer emotional dependency doesn’t work for this energy – it is blocked by Saturn, who wants to teach another path. When the inner sense of security is invested in, an unshakable sense of self-acceptance + security is formed. It cannot be lost or taken away once the true emotional center is discovered. Want to learn more? Book a reading!

SATURN IN LEO

Saturn in Leo will be a Self-realized energy when Saturn’s lessons are worked with. As an initial imprint, the Saturn in Leo native essentially has an built-in block between self + Self. In other words, little ego + Higher Self are waiting for a stronger bridge to be built. Often for the Saturn in Leo native, there exists a noticeable barrier to creative expression and what it offers for the Self. Even those that are extremely creative tend to miss the “point” of their expression until the process of creating is more fully invested in. I tend to think of the difference between product-oriented art and process-oriented art for this energy; the benefits for Saturn in Leo will be in more process-oriented expression. Underneath it all, these individuals seem to not understand their own importance and lack in self-love until they grow with the path that Saturn is offering. Their freedom comes when a trust in the overall process of life is leaned on. The joyful, child-like, playful, curious, and incredibly loving energy is sparked when these natives let ego take a backseat to their true Self. They won’t need an audience to give them praise or love or recognition – they can just BE and be peaceful in that space. If you want to dig deeper, feel free to learn more in a reading from me here!

SATURN IN VIRGO

Saturn in Virgo wonders about health, order, and routine. What does it all mean? The opportunity for the Saturn in Virgo native is in a very focused uniting of the mind-body connection. The “how” and the “where” of this energy is as detailed and scattered/vast in possibility as the sign Virgo, itself. There may be chronic illness, general disease or disorder, and/or an overall sense of discomfort within the environment they find themselves in. Still, there is opportunity for growth from that space – Saturn would guarantee that if someone could hear it. Essentially, the Saturn in Virgo individual is quite sensitive to both the inner and outer realms. Individual filtering is key; regardless, though, the root fear for this energy can be traced to a sense of things being out of order. Even “too much” order can feel disorderly for this energy type. The body-mind balance is the the key to finding freedom for any Saturn in Virgo experiencer. The mind and the body need to find their alignment with one another so that daily structure has a purposeful or meaningful service involved – felt and understood through the body. The freedom is to be at peace in a service role of some kind…for self, other, etc. How does that land in your body, Saturn in Virgo? Dig deeper with me through a reading, if you feel it!

SATURN IN Libra

The Saturn in Libra individual is concerned with being alone. All signs/energies are met with projection of ‘other,’ but that human experience is heightened with Saturn in Libra. Libra essentially marks the beginning of connecting more to ‘other’ than the first 6 signs in the archetype. When Saturn is placed in that energetic field, the individual is more prone to feeling a weakness – and yet a responsibility – to truly connect with an ‘other.’ Here we have the opportunity to turn weakness into strength and to live beyond the limiting forces of Saturn. When unattended to internally, ‘other’ may appear to “the responsible one,” which creates a dependency pattern within the relationship. That leaning on tends to elicit fear of pain, loneliness, isolation, rejection and disappointment – or those things all manifest and felt. Once the realization of a projected self is worked through, the Saturn in Libra native can find the key to his or her freedom: balancing opposites. Rather than sacrificing true love for a sense of comfort or safety (within the confines or Saturnine control/power), the Saturn in Libra individual can break free into true happiness. THAT is his or her actual duty – not the duty felt from the initial imprint of the energy. If you want to navigate this placement further, it is usually better to balance the whole natal chart with a reading – from me or an other!

SATURN IN SCORPIO

The Saturn in Scorpio native is working on feelings – but not just individual feelings. At this point in the overall cycle of the zodiac, the energy has shifted into dealing with ‘other’ more fully as well. Where Cancer is first dealing with the inner reality of emotion, Scorpio is tasked with handling that inner reality + another’s emotional experience. Saturn in Scorpio energy is basically about strengthening in the area of emotional exchange. Yet, emotional exchange happens in so many areas of life (the financial level, the sexual level, the creative/procreative level, etc.) that it may be better to say the Saturn in Scorpio experiencer is bringing the overall exchange of energy with another to light. The fear with this placement is two-fold because not only is Saturnine energy involved, but the power + mystery of Scorpio energy enters in as well. Fears may be more pronounced: fear of emotional intimacy or connection, fear of death or change, fear of submission, fear of loss of control, fear of the unknown, and so on. If left unchecked, these types of fears will often attract numerous experiences of disappointment in emotional connection – often in the most sensitive, vulnerable, or intimate parts of a person’s psyche. So how does the Saturn in Scorpio individual break free? The awareness (often times coming through a crisis/awakening due to Plutonic forces involved) of the flow of emotion both inside and out is key. This imprinting can lend itself to potent + powerful healing and/or healers – ones that seem to carry a magical, mysterious quality about them. Where is this signature showing up for you?

SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS

Saturn in Sagittarius is ultimately dealt Aces on looking for meaning in life. In other words, while we all may have an inner desire to find meaning as life rolls along, the Saturn in Sagittarius native will have a far stronger pull – and sometimes a noticeable stronger anchor – in seeking + finding meaning to existence. The Hermetic axiom “as above, so below” is a simple, succinct mantra for this energetic field of experience. The experiencer usually has to undergo some kind of loss of faith in life as Saturn’s gravity pulls one to learn through its hexagonal vortex or storm. The opportunity for internal/external freedom presents itself through that loss of faith – whether through an initial dogmatic upbringing turned on its side or through a peak experience where whatever is termed ‘God’ is met with more directly. Or… through an incessant rebellion + mistrust in authority of all sorts. However the path unfolds for the Saturn in Sagittarius individual, the purpose can be clearly felt to create individual meaning for one’s life + existence. And, Sagittarian energy (ruled by the expansive + benevolent Jupiter) is about JOY – the native just has to get past whatever roadblocks Saturn has erected to get there. How can YOU get there? You have the answers inside, but it might help to dialogue more through a reading

SATURN IN CAPRICORN

Saturn in Capricorn is at home! This position amplifies the Saturn energy – no matter what house it shows up in. Capricorn + Saturn carry keywords like authority, success, honor, ambition, achievement, etc. Things of the outer, public life. With this placement, one may have experienced a rather authoritative or burdensome (or both) mother/father figure – usually one with a focus on material values. Due to such a narrow view, the emotional body of the Saturn in Capricorn native tends to get neglected or entangled in some sort of complex with the dominant parental figure. This energy is essentially about one’s “role” in life, and the Saturn in Capricorn individual must eventually will himself to create his own role. Saturn tends to slow things down though… so the cautious climb to the peak one is seeking is usually met with obstacles, delays, and restrictions. It is an arduous process for most. Ultimately though, the Saturn in Capricorn individual will, along the way, realize the beauty of free will itself. When the energy is really embraced and harnessed, he or she can absolutely receive the recognition desired. For this energy signature, freedom and success go hand-in-hand.

SATURN IN AQUARIUS

Saturn in Aquarius is like the Steve Jobs in innovation, where personal recognition just flows from a strong commitment + dedication to bring something to the collective. In early life, the Saturn in Aquarius individual will most likely be that – an individual. In some form or another, this energy signature tends to stand alone. Even in a crowd or with others, there is often a felt sense of separateness. Freedom for the Saturn in Aquarius native can be found when the sense of not belonging is met with taking the lead. Owning one’s differences can be difficult, but when it is, a shining light beacons the group. Of course, as with all of life, there is a paradox to deal with for the Saturn in Aquarius energy: some with this imprint may feel scarily ordinary. Their ordinariness, too, cuts them off from the totality of group life because they do not like being boxed into a label like “ordinary.” Again, they are fraught with the task of taking the lead somehow – for the collective good. Underneath it all, the Saturn in Aquarius native is inclined to see where things are heading. He or she knows what the collective needs to progress… and, with the help of the few they truly call ‘friend,’ new communities + ways of thinking, being, or working in the world can emerge.

SATURN IN PISCES

Saturn in Pisces is a rather crepuscular energy: it lives between two worlds. Here we have both endings + beginnings, night + day, earth + spirit, etc. All of it – the duality is spliced. Individuals born with Saturn in Pisces tend to lead lives in open service or in literal/figurative prisons – sometimes both (simultaneously even). No matter how it shows up, this energy tends to be naturally in accordance with a grander service to the Whole. Basically, when a very earthy, grounded, and honor-bound planet like Saturn meets up with Piscean energy, all of Saturn’s natural workings are dissolved. Defenses + structures are obliterated. The Being holding this imprint is often left feeling very vulnerable/raw in any and all environments. Yet, and even though it may feel out of one’s control, the Saturn in Pisces individual holds a unique beauty for all of the world to see: they help others to remember who they are… who True Self is (and sometimes, why). The freedom for any Saturn in Pisces native is, in short, to be authentically Self. Issues arise when Saturn energy is tapped into to try to protect the Self – it doesn’t work, and the path must go inward. Ultimately, Saturn in Pisces individuals are tasked with the responsibility to believe they are always safe + on path by connecting more deeply with themselves on a much broader level. In this way, they serve… and serve well.
