Transit Neptune Conjunct Natal Saturn ~ New Reality
Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation
Neptune Conjunct Natal Saturn
Transit Neptune Conjunct Saturn can be quite a difficult transit because it can be quite confusing and possibly depressing and lonely. It is a time where your view of the world will be challenged. Loosening what is rigid can occur, and you can initiate steps to bring greater flexibility wherever you hold on too tightly. Such steps can produce long-term results. Sometimes this period brings unwanted relaxation of stable conditions where you seem to have no choice but to let go. If you like being in control, this can make it difficult since what you have depended upon may lose its effectiveness without any reason or due to circumstances outside your influence and may make you see where you have been deceived or where you may have been incorrect in your assumptions. Fear and loss of confidence can be some of the most difficult effects of this transit. Saturn rules the structure which we give to our world and Neptune is boundless, ethereal and spiritual. Therefore, reality can become confusing as you become lost in a world which seems like it has endless possibilities yet no clear idea on which direction to head. This may feel like the 'dark night of the soul' where a period of distress or crisis will eventually turn into insight and greater understanding. This can at the highest level precede a state of enlightenment whereby our old view of reality is crushed and torn down and a birth of a new world and vision is created. In most cases, it shows that your reality and how you see it will change dramatically. Try to avoid making any big decisions during this time and try to reduce the stress in your life so you have time to reflect on your own personal truths that will emanate from the current fog. This period can help to wash away all that is unnecessary and leave you with the essential elements for enduring accomplishment. To the extent that you are missing some important components, a feeling of being off course probably will surface. If you are on target, this is a time to step back and fine tune what already is in working order.
