“Saturn comes back around to show you everything, Let’s you choose what you will not see and then Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again, Spits you out like a child, light and innocent.” Tool – The Grudge
Saturn’s Retrograde back into Scorpio on June 15th until September 2015 is the final stage of a transit that’s left most people emotionally exhausted and rinsed to put it mildly.
Saturn going through the dark depths of Scorpio over the past 2.5 years has seen many break up, downs and through’s in the areas of sex, psychology, external finances and esoteric beliefs.
All the internal gunk we have been trying to avoid finally came spewing forward, the denials were no longer enough to contain it. We have realised through this transit the only way to get rid of this emotional gunk is to go through it and experience it, rather than skirt around it acknowledging it whilst waving thanks “I see you … but just stay over there!”
Saturn is a planet that gives structure by destroying all things that are not hurricane strength to allow deeper foundations to build on. Since this planet has been in Scorpio all things Scorpionic have firmly been in the firing line and Scorpionic things are not necessarily easy or straight-forward.
Saturn entered Scorpio on October 5th 2012 until 23rd December 2014. Think back, what has changed, evolved or moved since then. Anything that has been evolving, changing or completely demolished since then, is what this final blast of Saturn is Scorpio is trying to finally integrate and finalise over the coming months, before pushes off for another 28 – 30 years.
People who have their Sun or personal planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) in Scorpio have been feeling the heat of the this Saturn transit over these planets the most. They would have felt a small reprieve when Saturn went in Sagittarius Dec 23rd 2014 until June this year, however since coming back for its final run, Saturn is considered more potent. The best way to look at transits, is to look at how things unfolded in previous Saturn in Scorpio transits (Globally and Personally). It’s a good indicator about what Saturn in Scorpio is about.
The last time we had Saturn in Scorpio (November 29 1982 – November 1985), the AID’s crisis was in full swing and Safe Sex became the new catch phrase, people’s lives literally became dependant on it. Peoples attitudes towards Sex had to be transformed almost over night. During this current transit we have seen plenty of celebrity sex scandals, with a outing of many predatory figures being convicted of sex crimes. In the 1980s we also saw Capitalism in full swing, mass privatization, suddenly Governments around the world were selling state assets to private buyers changing how we view what is private and what is public Goods and Services. Currently we are still dealing with fall out of the effects of the Global Financial Crisis, the current Greek financial crisis the last blast or culmination of the continued woes for the Euro as well as helping re-evaluating how a United Europe does business. Other people are certainly dictating other people (Greece’s) money. What is decided on for Greece will certainly dictate other similar scenarios in Europe for the near future.
This last phase of Saturn in Scorpio isn’t going to be easy but it will most certainly finish off what it started back in October 2012 and it will hopefully made you re-evaluate how you psychologically do things for the better over the next 28 – 30 years. When Saturn moves into Sagittarius on the 18th of September, there will be a collective sigh of relief but the changes that Saturn brought should allow you to have greater depth, conviction and make you psychologically stronger creating a solid platform to move forward from, with the large sigh of relief and mutterings of “thank god that’s over ! Seriously !”
