Moon conjuncts Saturn today.
Today’s astrological transits show the moon moving thru the sign of Sagittarius with Venus squaring both Mars (2:07pm EDT) and Jupiter (9:36pm EDT). A fiery Sag moon does not bode well for practicing patience.
I don’t think today will be The Day.
Patience is a Saturnian experience and the fixed signs of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo & Aquarius probably have more of a natural affinity to remaining calm, stable, and unmoving……other aspects of being patient.
The dictionary shows the definition of patience as one who is patient. Patient is defined as:
1: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint
2: manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain
3: not hasty or impetuous
4: steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity
5 a: able or willing to bear
Waiting for a baby to be born might be the ultimate test of patience as well as a few other tests as well! Letting go of control and surrendering to the present moment are ways to bring a spiritual practice to the frustration and endless waiting period of childbirth.
Becoming a grandparent might be another Saturn-type of event since Saturn governs things like: elders, authority, practical wisdom ( as opposed to philosophical wisdom which falls more into the Jupiter category).
So, I’m looking at all my charts and doing what I can to contact my intuition to answer the eternal question: “When??”
I don’t think today’s the day. Time to be patient.
May all beings practice peaceful patience.
Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.
Explanation: Saturn never shows a crescent phase — from Earth. But when viewed from beyond, the majestic giant planet can show an unfamiliar diminutive sliver. This image of crescent Saturn in natural color was taken by the robotic Cassini spacecraft in May. The image captures Saturn’s majestic rings from the side of the ring plane opposite the Sun — the unilluminated side — another vista not visible from Earth. Pictured are many of Saturn’s photogenic wonders, including the subtle colors of cloud bands, the complex shadows of the rings on the planet, the shadow of the planet on the rings, and the moons Mimas (2 o’clock), Janus (4 o’clock), and Pandora (8 o’clock). As Saturn’s moves towards equinox in 2009, the ring shadows are becoming smaller and moving toward the equator. During equinox, the rings will be nearly invisible from Earth and project only an extremely thin shadow line onto the planet.
Saturn is currently squaring my natal Sun. Ugh. It feels like being trapped within concrete walls with only a small little penknife to chip my way out. I suppose there is a postive side to this transit, there always is a good side. However, today I just feel stuck.
Just before the transit came to exactitude I spent a week at Kripalu Center attending the Symposium on Yoga Therapy. It was wonderful to be with a community of yoga professionals who are focused on using these ancient practices towards health & wellness. There are some really good things happening out there! I learned a lot. And, I also realized how much I already know…………..it’s always good to be validated!
Yoga Therapy is definitely an up and coming modality that is beginning to receive recognition from the medical establishment. In my own practice a few of my clients are getting reimbursed by their insurance companies for their sessions with me. And, their doctors are writing prescriptions for Yoga Therapy!
What sets my practice apart from most of the other yoga therapists is the use of astrology in my analysis. Looking at a clients natal chart along with current transits & progressions can provide a lot of information that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. As soon as this concrete wall crumbles I hope to complete some of the articles on this and post them here or on my website. But until then……….I’ll continue to practice procrastination!
