Transit Neptune Square Natal Saturn ~ Cleaning out the Closest
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 Square Natal Saturn
During the Transit of Neptune Square to Saturn you will have problems and issues with insecurity and anxiety that don't really seem to come from any situation or relationship. Neptune is stripping away your concrete view of reality that Saturn provides and this can leave you feeling discontented and confused. This is a psychological transit that will change your moods and emotions and cause your view of the world to change. A gradual weakening of structures that you have depended upon for stability may occur, and this cycle has a way of pinpointing the weakest links within and around you. Goals that you pursue may no longer hold your attention, and it can be a challenge to stay focused. To the extent that you are off course, this period tends to detect the slightest deviation. While this can make you more aware of subtle differences that you can correct for greater efficiency, you also may find that minor miscalculations may have a major impact on what you have already established. One purpose of this process is to become more aware of barely perceptible forces and the important role that they play in affecting outcomes. The biggest problem is that you will have doubts and fears that you are unable to bear the consequences and burdens of your life and you may feel like escaping. It is important to work through these fear by discussing your issues with your friends and colleagues to gain a different perspective as your world view is distorted so you are not thinking clearly. One important effect of this transit is that it takes away elements of your life that you may have identified with externally such as your house, possessions, work etc. It wants to show you that you do not need to completely identify yourself with material concerns as your complete self and that you can continue to be fulfilled internally rather than externally. It is good to see how much you can do without and to examine things in your life that you can get rid of or sell. Minimize your lifestyle to be simpler and let go of useless possession that no longer serve you but merely clutter your life.
