Saturn enters Sagittarius



December 23, 2014.

Saturn has moved through the depths of watery Scorpio and today is moving into the sign of Sagittarius at 10:07 am Pacific Time.  It’s been a challenging two and half years as Saturn transited Scorpio.  The fixed sign brought us to depths we may otherwise not moved into for our own growth.  In my own life when Saturn moved into Scorpio October 6, 2012, I was still struggling with lack of work in my profession as a recruiter, dealing with debt from divorce and still moving through a grieving phase from the death of a dear friend that occurred earlier that year and I’d experienced many unimaginable events that led up to his actual transition from physical life.  All my experiences during this time were heavy, restricted, hard work and a lot of emotions I had to process.  I did take action to help heal myself in a variety of ways from self awareness in studying, healing in acupuncture sessions and talking with friends and family when I needed to share things that surfaced.  A much needed time to deal with deeper wounds.

As Saturn enters Sagittarius, the same sign as my sun I am grateful in every sense for how far I’ve come in the last couple of years, though I am ready for the energy and discipline that comes now.  Though I know with Saturn’s retrograde next year when it transits back into Scorpio there will be likely deeper final insights to be integrated into awareness.  March 15th, 2015 it will go retrograde again and it will be back in Scorpio June 16th before going direct again at 28 degrees Scorpio on August 2nd.  Saturn will finally then return to Sagittarius again on September 17th – 18th.   I’ll have to revisit the events then of what surfaces at that time that continues the themes about restriction, death/rebirth, what depths we go to and what the cosmos are asking for us to let go.  Hopefully it’s not another re-run of the song from Frozen, my eight year old daughter has played it enough for my ears.

One way I anticipate expressing Saturn in Sagittarius is my commitment to completion of my book I started in 2011.  It will be a huge accomplishment to get my raw manuscript to an editor and then on to a publisher.   The coming year of 2015 has promise for the hard work, the constriction and feeling of the depths of emotions during the Saturn in Scorpio phase and where new growth will come and hopefully flourish.
