Saturn in Sagittarius December 2014 - 12/22/2014 4:00:00 PM ~ Curbing Excess
Saturn and Sagittarius are strange bedfellows, because Sagittarius is the sign of optimism and expansion, while Saturn is all about restriction and harsh reality checks. But this blending of opposites could actually strike a healthy balance. Over the past two years of Saturn in Scorpio you may have seen various themes in your life around letting go, surrender, loss of control and getting deep into ones own issues around trust, addictions, inner values and fears and transforming these issues into great strengths. If you faced these with courage and acknowledged responsibility for your own actions then the next two years can be very fruitful! Saturn in Sagittarius can be associated with a profound and penetrating mind. The more conscious individual can express this quality to a greater degree. There is a great possibility of finding some very valuable answers to broad and deep questions but they must be found within rather than from outside influences. If youre one of the four mutable signs—Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces—this Saturn cycle will have the strongest impact on you. Get ready to see major structures in your personal and/or professional life take on a whole, mature new shape. A love of culture, learning and reading may be the saving grace for many who experience Saturn’s transit through the sign of freedom and exploration of a higher purpose in the cosmos. As far as widespread knowledge goes, this will be a game changer, that much is sure. The opportunity which Saturn offers here is connected with a potential for more direct intuitive perception of the wholeness and meaning of your inner psyche and this perception is what depth psychology calls peak experience. Ideals and Ethics come into the forefront and Saturn will not tolerant others authority or domineering tactics. All Moral and ethical values lie within and while realizing these concepts are relative there still is a responsibility to serve the greater whole. On one side lies the the relinquishment of ones dreams and on the other the struggle against authority. Once balanced, there exists a freedom which a Sagittarius expresses most easily ~ Joy.
