Saturn drug itself through my 7th house as I watched a marriage crumble. I had reason to respect the transit as it shuffled through my 8th house (horrible but made for funny blogging). I am wondering the wisdom of starting college again as Transiting Grumpy Pants started through my ninth house. What a big surprise to find how easy breezy peasy college has been; straight A(s) and the 4.0 GPA scholarships that comes with that.
The ninth house does rule Astrology, and there I did see limitations. I don’t write on here often, readings have dried up, and I actually had someone review some of my work and – to my dismay – said how surprised she was I knew what I was doing. As a penance to Saturn, I decided to take a position on an Astrology board. Not for Astrology, but instead to limit in a Saturn authoritarian kind of way. I just do the clean-up work like look for spammers and move threads to the correct forums, but very little Astrology. Though I missed the charts, the questions, and the collaborations of minds….I needed to learn how to remain objective and to interpret, follow, and implement rules of an organization. So I got a little soft on Saturn and forgot he is a hater. In this house it appears that Saturn had a good pair of running shoes; he moved so effortlessly and quickly. (This may have appeared as such a picnic in the park as I had no aspecting natal planets involved in a house with fewer degrees to travel.)
I am looking at Saturn approaching my MC. Keep in mind an easily forgotten concept of looking at this as an axis with the IC. They will both be affected. And as the orb comes into view, I am not sure what will become with employment. School is a means for an end, and I am hoping that won’t make much of a difference as I will graduate well after the planet has moved on. Transit Saturn will also square my Natal Saturn… Bwaa haa haa, like it can do much more harm with that Natal position. If you are a Modernist, Natal Neptune is on my MC exact….. so maybe that means no becoming a movie star or a drug dealer as a living. Can two Malefics make a Benefic? As the positioning gives us a clue to 10th house issues for the next Saturn cycle of 30 years, I will be sure to keep track of lessons learned.
My IC seems to be the one getting the huge hit. I have been a serial bride… sigh always the bride and never the bride’s maid. The last 7 years had its ups and downs at home, but finally, I am happy being independent and on my own with just the kids. This next year my son finishes high school, my daughter finishes the second half of her cosmetology license, and all of the animals have been passing on from age and the home has the promise of quiet peace. Then I find out, there could be an inheritance issue and I could be homeless at the drop of a hat. That is nice and Saturny. Okay, that really isn’t too bad, as the kids are ready to move on and…. oh wait, my 18 year old announces she is pregnant. She is unmarried (Saturn is transiting her 7th) and plans to live here at home (Grandma the live in babysitter) a few years until she is comfortable enough to move out. I am not thrilled with her boyfriend moving in, but it may end up happening. (Really, I am not complaining about this, but it is a shake up to the IC) Things may turn out that my sister may move in (that is a yay but again an adjusting thing) or maybe we will all end up on the street. If the house is “gone”, I will probably move out of state, as really nothing is holding me here in the first place. I need to find a warmer place. I bet I marry again…. can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
Okay, so I see the earthquake gearing up for the IC. I am willing to bet anything you will hear from me again on how the MC is affected soon. Saturn will not be denied his mean old streak.
