* SATURN in mid SAG goes direct (Aug 13) * Committed to our Heart Intentions.

12 Aug

About time… / just in time:

SATURN makes its yearly retro-to-direct ‘U-turn’ this month, exact tomorrow, SaturNday Aug 13.

Which means: August is a stationary SATURN Themes month. Have you noticed?!?

Many of us have been sitting in the starters, to head out on an intentional path, mission, journey, yet felt held back, tested, presented with ‘obstacles’ and ‘delays’…


SATURN energy is not ‘mean’, it actually represents a necessary reality check. It keeps us grounded to make sure the bases are covered, we are in our authority, and not buying into fear, or doing things for the wrong reasons. A maturing, sobering energy. The ring of commitment and self-responsibility is a magic key to be in good terms with SATURN (and to experience its positive effects). Less is more is also always a good mantra to go by, under the SATURN influence. So it would be good to unburden ourselves, on all levels, so that we ‘travel lighter’.


Many clients over the last year (since SATURN’s been fully in SAG – Sept 2015) have been wondering: “Where am I going?” – either literally, “Where in the world?”, or
“Where to focus on in my life’s journey? In my career?”
“Hard to aim on something, with so much uncertainty and distraction!”,
“Can I trust, or does fear win?”,
“What makes me happy?”
…Given the ‘reality’ and socio-economic context.

I often reflected those concerns back with the question: “Where are you coming from?”
Perhaps historically, through your conditioning (‘old stories’ and limiting beliefs that are now ‘ripe’ to be seen for what they are, and ‘reaped’ by SATURN), and from there:
Spiritually, motivationally. The SAG / Zen Archer/ess has to pull the arrow back first (a good SATURN retro in SAG image), towards the chest & HEART, aim clearly, and release in relaxed one-pointedness.

Similarly, in the now turning SATURN retro phase which has been on since end of March, we had to ‘pull back’ our initial intentions that we might have formed before SATURN went retro, to make sure we come from the right & LIGHT place, as we move forward with what we ‘put out there’, or as we take ourselves on an intentional journey.

As SATURN goes direct on Aug 13 (which has been already activated through the MOON in SAG Aug 11 – 13, and will be catalyzed through the next Full Moon on Aug 18) we’ll have a much clearer sense of our Heart motivation, how and what we can really trust (a key theme in SAG), while moving forward and upward. Maybe we have received signs of ‘evidence’ that showed us what the path is inviting us to. What in you KNOWS?


MARS has been for a long time ‘behind’ SATURN in the Zodiac (hope you had a chance to see the beautiful triangular alignment in the early night sky, of (‘right to left’) MARS, Antares (brightest star in SCORPIO) and SATURN, just ‘below’ the MOON these days.

Some of us in our Houses group this Spring went out on a clear night after class, to see them through my friend Stephen’s telescope. Quite spectacular to see SATURN’s ring. Perhaps a heavenly ‘initiation’…


Soon after SATURN goes direct, MARS (also in SAG now!) will pass SATURN, on Aug 24.

Another phase that gives way for gaining energy and momentum for moving past the inner and perceived outer ‘obstacles’, and to ‘go for it’, not from an ego place but from the Heart!

More blessings for the Journey!
