As the god of time in Roman mythology, Saturn’s touch tempers our efforts in all endeavors – no short cuts; no half-assed planning; no sidestepping. I have personally felt the effects of Saturn’s shift matched with Mars’ momentum. At once, I am excited for what’s around the bend, and also cautious with how I exert my energy in pursuit. Albert Einstein said, “the search for truth implies also a duty; one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.” As we seek justice in our personal lives and on the world’s stage, Saturn gives us the stamina to enforce truth, and the moral drive to transform.
The ringed planet will soon catch up with the warrior planet, forming what is called a conjunction in the sky (two planets in the same sign within a 5 degree orb). Once this aspect is exact, a reality check will remind us of the need to be conscientious with our truth-seeking agendas. Pay attention to what unfolds during these planetary transits as we approach eclipse season beginning on August 18th; a few plot twists and turns are in store now through September (I will write more on this later). Mars and Saturn combined creates an atmosphere of challenged energy – the infamous pause before the great shift. If we plan accordingly, our mission will have the potential to broaden, and ripple the earth.
