On October 6th 2012, Saturn will complete its tour of Libra leaving a permanent imprint that’ll forever change our attitudes towards what is required to maintain enduring unity. This will also be a welcomed reprieve to you Libra Suns out there who have been tested the most. Up next on Saturn’s agenda is a transit through the sign of Scorpio, where the planet will remain from this October to 2015. A call for synergy will be a continuing theme, but this time on a subterranean level. The energy of Scorpio is regenerative, and as I’ve said time and time again, this sign finds pleasure in plunging the depths of any person, topic or situation in order to expose and release all that is hidden for the sake of transformation. This is actually the primary function of Scorpio, and the only way to fully transcend is through deep and profound experiences, namely death.
The manifestations of Saturn in the sign of Scorpio will mobilize us to thoroughly examine the authoritarian dynamics found within our systems of governance and administration, as well as our own private desires for dominance and control. The investigation will be intruding, bringing to light all that has been concealed and kept in the dark. Inevitably, we will feel exposed and vulnerable, either in the public light or in our close and intimate associations. This is where Saturn comes in to replenish our everyday realities with a deepening strength and determination to mend all that is broken. We are now in the midst of this experience as Pluto moves through the sign of Capricorn (a gradual but strong mutual reception to Saturn in Scorpio). In the end, something must die in order to evoke an unyielding spirit of renewal. During this transit of Saturn, we will all at one point experience a certain “death” that leads to resurrection on a soul level.
