Saturn Return in Sagittarius: #MutableMadness2019

If you were born between December 17, 1987 and March 20, 1990, then between June 20, 1990 and December 14, 1990, then you have Saturn in Sagittarius. You are in the midst of your Saturn Return. 2019 is a VERY BIG DEAL for you! Your Saturn return began in January 2017. It will finish in January 2020.

When I talk about #MutableMadness2019 I speak of a season in which we all find a relevant time for change and transition in our lives. However, there is a specific group of people whose lives intersect with this season in a deeply personal way.

You are having your Saturn Return in Sagittarius if you were born between December 17, 1987 and March 20, 1990, then between June 20, 1990 and December 14, 1990.

What makes the current generation of Saturn in Sagittarius returns so special? First is that the eclipses have come to the sign of your Saturn.

Eclipses in Gemini & Sagittarius

Eclipses are lunar or solar. Lunar eclipses are marked points of clarity. The lights come on revealing previously hidden knowledge, circumstances, or feelings. Solar eclipses snatch things from our lives, or vigorously thrust us towards something brand new. You, my dear Saturn Return in Sagittarius friends, get TWO solar eclipses and ONE lunar eclipse in the sign of your Saturn in 2019. This is #MutableMadness2019.

Now these eclipses and the interpretation of what they bring or take away are true for everyone. But for you, who has Saturn in Sagittarius, these eclipses converge with your coming of age.

Saturn in Sagittarius, you now step squarely into adulthood, faced with the defining moment that reveals where the walls that narrow your path forward are. Now is the moment the ceilings of possibility are illuminated, directing you towards a life of meaningful intention.

With the Solar Eclipses, you get TWO opportunities to abandon the things that no longer align with your INTENTIONS & CONVICTIONS. You get TWO opportunities to be suddenly thrust into a life that aligns with what life reveals as TRUTH for you.

With the Lunar Eclipse, you get ONE opportunity to see clearly how your intentions and convictions have served you or not.

Jupiter Comes Home to Sagittarius in 2019

The second thing that makes this Saturn return special for this generation of Saturn in Sagittarius is that Jupiter comes home to Sagittarius in 2019. Jupiter asks you to get clear on why you tell the story you tell.

Jupiter in Sagittarius asks: ” Why do you tell the story you tell about what is possible in your life? Why do you believe what you believe?

It matters not if the story you tell is true; only your intentions matter. The real question is, “Does the story you tell about what’s possible in your life support or undermine your intentions?

My Saturn Return in Sagittarius friends, this is the magic potion that helps you get clear on your priorities. This is the tonic that reveals the intentions that inform how you invest your time, energy, and other resources.

MutableMadness2019 for Saturn return in Sagittarius brings these ultimate questions to you:

  • Have you paid lip service to the convictions you confess?
  • Or, is your life a living testimony of those convictions?
  • Are you ready to shape the world to your intentions?
  • How?

New Services + Changes!

As many of you know because you follow me on Twitter, my life just had a big change with my boy going to kindergarten. It’s been an exciting and exhausting first week as we adjust to our new schedules.

This change in our lives coincides with significant Saturn transits for the both of us. And as I always say, do Saturn or Saturn will do you! So, I’m doing Saturn. That means recognizing that I have limited time and energy. I mean, it’s obvious at this point.

In this spirit, I’ve made changes to the readings that I offer. I’ve added some new readings and made adjustments to the prices and lengths of the readings to better reflect the reality of how the readings have been going. This allows me to offer a wider variety of readings and different price points.

Below please find the updated list of readings that I am now offering. You can head over to my booking page to schedule now.

Saturn in Scorpio, Redux: June 20, 2017 – October 26, 2017

Since January 26, 2017 Saturn has been giving us a brief introduction to its transit in Sagittarius. But beginning June 20, and ending October 26 of 2017, Saturn in Scorpio will handle some unfinished business. Saturn stations direct at 27 Scorpio on August 24, 2017

All transits are in sidereal. If you’re curious about your chart using the sidereal zodiac you can find a guide with instructions on plotting your sidereal chart here, and a post outlining some of the philosophical differences between tropical and sidereal here.

Mars ruler of Scorpio, has had a lot to say over the past few months. Between Mercury’s retrograde in Aries and Uranus entering Aries permanently for the first time since 1933, the planets, and our lives have been answering to Mars. Saturn in Scorpio will soon be answering to Mars.

Saturn in Scorpio in the Natal Chart

In the natal chart, Saturn shows where and how we are establishing ourselves as competent adults; what we are building over time in our external lives; and where we bump up against limitations and expectations that admonish us to grow up and be real.

Saturn generally needs evidence to change or relinquish control. Ideally that evidence is competence and sovereignty: proven ability (Capricorn) and self-determination (Aquarius).

Is Mars supportive, indifferent, or hostile to Saturn’s agenda? It’s complicated. There are places where their agendas overlap and places where they conflict. Ultimately, Saturn in Scorpio, the domicile of Mars, is volatile.

Being malefics, both Saturn and Mars lend themselves towards separation, loss, and even death. But where Saturn denies, blocks, and resists, Mars persists, cuts through, and explodes. They both can bring endings, but it’s a matter of how and why.

Saturn in Scorpio maintains with an indomitable will; it controls using subversive tactics and coercive force. In the natal chart, Saturn in Scorpio lends towards power struggles; but it also challenges us to harness our power and wrestle with our need for control. It questions how we go about getting it or keeping it.

Natives with Saturn in Scorpio often deal with themes of domination and surrender in the house where Saturn is in their chart. During their Saturn return they may come face to face with their own powerlessness or even struggle to use their power effectively. Natives with Saturn in Scorpio may ask themselves:

Are you prepared to accept the responsibility that comes with having the final say? How much will it cost you in the end? Is it better to surrender or can you find a balance?

The Saturn in Scorpio lesson is to learn when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em.

Transiting Saturn in Scorpio

Saturn in Scorpio can be stealthy and relentless. Whether that’s good or bad depends on where Mars is at any given time during Saturn in Scorpio’s transit. Where will Mars be during Saturn in Scorpio’s upcoming transit?

Mars in Gemini, June 20 – July 11
Mars in Cancer, July 11 – August 26
Mars in Leo, August 26 – October 13
Saturn enters Sagittarius, October 26, 2017 – January 24, 2020

In the next part of this article, I will talk about Mars in each of the signs as it pertains to Saturn’s final movements through Scorpio.

Saturn & The First Saturn Return

In this post, I will talk about the 5 stages of the first Saturn cycle which begins at birth and ends at the 1st Saturn return between ages 28 and 30.

Saturn &The First Saturn Return by @PeoplesOracle

Saturn in the Natal Chart

Over time, Saturn seeks to cultivate sovereignty over oneself—the authority one has over one’s life. It’s authority one is born with. Yet during the first Saturn cycle, between birth and about 28 to 30 years old, we awaken to that power and wrestle with it. We tussle with external authority figures and ultimately take over where our parents and other authority figures left off. Over that time period we internalize our experience of power and authority figures who have influenced us and held responsibility for our lives.

  • How did our caretakers handle their authority over us and responsibility for us?
  • Were we responsible for ourselves before we were appropriately capable? Or, did we make a relatively smooth transition? Or, did we never fully take over responsibility?
  • Did we have to take care of those who were supposed to take care of us?
  • Was cooperation demanded? Submission coerced? Trust nurtured?

The other side of Saturn represents external markers of authority, power, and responsibility. It’s when we explore the limits of our power and influence in the world around us. This is the kind of authority that is, ideally, earned and built over time. It’s granted to the one who has shown competency. It’s recognizing the impact of our authority AND our responsibility for the world around us.

Who’s The Boss?

Saturn at Birth is 0°
Age 0 to age 7
The boss has all of the power and all of the responsibility. You are not the boss, at first. You are completely helpless and 100% reliable on others to take care of you, to make decisions for you, to provide structure and boundaries for you—even if no one is there, which is the case for some people. The boundary of where you end and others begin is molded during this phase.

The first seeds of self awareness and our innate authority sprout during this time. We flex our muscle but mostly retreat to the familiarity of the boundaries we know.

The 1st Saturn Square is 90°
Age 7 to age 14
The 90° square of any two planets’ is about awareness and emergence. There is friction between what is known and what is unknown. One is awakening to the limits around them, feeling along the walls to see where they end.

But at the 90° square between transiting Saturn and natal Saturn the boundaries of home and family are the foundation upon which the rules of the emerging world around you are built. A solid foundation makes this period a quick build; an unstable foundation often calcifies boundary issues—whether too porous/non-existent, or impenetrable. But, the rules you know and the new rules your experience rub up against each other. Authority figures and the limitations of your world now bring another set of rules, not just those unique to your home and family, but also to your community and culture.

The Saturn Opposition 180°
Age 14 to age 21
The Saturn opposition is a face-off. You want to take the reigns, and in some ways you are ready. But the authority figures in your life tell you, “Not quite”. At this point, authority figures take the form of parents, teachers, law enforcement, etc. You feel physically powerful in your body (thanks to puberty), and you feel like you have a grasp on reality—enough to “see things as they are.” Power struggles often color this time period as you push back against boundaries that you feel are being forced upon you.

The Saturn Square 270°
Age 21 to age 28
This is the time where the rubber meets the road. We finally have the authority, and the responsibility, that we’ve craved all along. How prepared are we? How prepared do we feel? Pressed by the world around us to make important decision about the trajectory of our lives; we feel pressure to think of the future and make long-term goals.

Squares bring friction, and the friction here sparks awareness of an impending end. Something in us feels what’s coming: the return of Saturn to its natal position, our first Saturn return. It’s an ending and a beginning. It’s where we come to terms with reality of our inner authority and responsibility.

Are the decisions that we’ve made a result of our own will and desire? Or are we living someone else’s dream? Will we accept it or change course?

The 1st Saturn Return 0°
Age 28 to age 30
This is an ending and a beginning. The natal house and sign placement of our Saturn gives us clues as to which area of our life and who or what is involved in this transition. This time reinforces our understanding of authority and responsibility. We may ask ourselves:

  • Who or what secures the foundation of our lives?
  • How can I take on the mantle of responsibility and adulthood in a way that honors my own voice, not just replicating the voices of those who have heretofore been responsible for me?
  • Who am I becoming and what do I need to do in order to develop competency in this becoming?
  • What am I doing to lay the groundwork to be an authority and garner respect in my community and the world around me?

Many of these answers do not come until after Saturn leaves the sign where it is in the natal chart. But the return itself is a completion and a seed planting phase. It’s dark, like a New Moon. It is very clear, for some people, what is happening and where things are headed. For others it’s a time of fear and many unknowns. Those born during the day (Sun in house 7-12) tend to have a more constructive experience, while those born at night (Sun in houses 1-6) tend to deal with more fear, resistance, and difficulty.

Think of this return as being born all over again. Yet you are already a full grown adult this time, and you have to do the work yourself to prepare for your birth. You’re emerging from a womb and coming into another world with new rules and expectations,. This time you are responsible for finding and creating those people and things that will be a foundation for you and your life as you mature into the role you’ll play in your community, career, and the world.
