Saturn Square Neptune During the Holidays
Saturn is very precise, he runs a very tight ship, and his course is laid out. He notes the positions of the stars navigating his journey, and his skills as a pilot are formidable.
Neptune on the other hand, will note the positions of the stars, they’re very beautiful in the sky, but he navigates from in internal compass, hardly conscious of his actions, he just gets there. Neptune, a few steps beyond Saturn in the solar system, has bridged the finite to the infinite, the actual to the universal archetypal. He lives in the future, and the past, the eternal now. Time and space has little meaning to him.
Saturn is the master of the world, the world as it was meant to be. That world, however, is only a stepping stone to a vaster cosmos which Neptune is more at home.
So now as Saturn will exactly square Neptune (on Thankgsiving 2015) one has to ask if their goals (Saturn) are attuned as well with Neptune’s masterful no-goals goals. Are you a slave to reason, logic, and causality; or is your universe radiant, organic, and ruled by love?
Does your love and spirituality contain logic, or does it flee from it? Can the rules that make up your character and identity stand the rigors of Neptune’s transcendent dimensionality? Can you successfully juggle the paradox of worldly living with all of its demands, bills to pay, tasks to be performed, and pinnacles to climb with the ultimate impermanence, futility and illusory nature of it all?
Saturn/Neptune aspects are challenging, to say the least. The cruel vindictiveness of Saturn comes against the shrinking sense of self-worthlessness that Neptune can bring out. Hard aspects like the square pull out the worst of our psychological conditions for us to see, and make determined resolve to correct.
It is sort of a dark configuration to come together exactly on Thanksgiving this year, making the holiday perhaps a soulful affair, seeking to find gratitude where there only was bitterness. It may seem inappropriate to be grateful for misfortunes, but misfortunes are Saturn’s forte, taking us back to reality in the most expedient way possible.
While it may seem the time is short, we have all the time we need in this little time-space enclosure that we live in (while the Universe dances around us.) We have all the TIME there is: being born, growing old and dying, again and again.
Neptune represents liberation; all of our efforts coming to naught engenders a letting go of things which yields peace, and then humility and therefore a more soulful walk henceforth. Being less tense, we live longer and healthier. Then one day we live our life, and we don’t come back. Having refined and refined our sense of who and what we are in thought, word, and deed, we return to our native immortality, having shed all of our lesser attachments.
The intrinsic authenticity of our dreams will be tested, and the results of which may ring poignantly this month, especially around Thanksgiving. There is never a better time to let go of frustrations and simply live rightly than now.
