Saturn Predictions Made Manifest & Button Pushing (Leo Full Moon Eclipse)

Back in 2014 / 2015 I made some predictions based solely on Saturn's passage through Sagittarius. Since Saturn represents karma/restriction/limitation/the Law, it's manifestations are obvious, concrete and undeniable. For example:

When Saturn was:

In Gemini, the Twins: the Twin Towers fell.
In Taurus, the sign of the Bull and Farming: Mad 'Cow' disease dominated the news as UK farmland was bought by the government following mass animal slaughter.
In Cancer, the sign of 'Home' and Protection (and the United States itself)Homeland Security was established, in the US.
In Virgo, the sign of 'Health': Obama offered Obamacare.
In Scorpio, the Sex sign: new laws were implemented for pornographic websites.

Trump's recent decision to restrict (Saturn) travel & visas (Sagittarius), setting up checkpoints and talking of building a wall at the border, reflects yet more manifestations of the predictions I made when Saturn first entered Sagittarius, two years ago. 


Let's face it - life is about constantly changing scenery. If we respond to what happens today with yesterday's emotional maturity or tools, we may find ourselves inadequately equipped to deal with what actually lies before us. 

Each Full Moon - especally the Lunar Eclipses - tests our response-ability, as opposed to knee-jerk reactions. How did you fare? Are you responding to life's events? Or has the word !REACT! come up lately in your life? 

That's the full Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon in Leo, still echoing from Feb 10....

I myself reacted...recently, to a good friend categorically telling me something I know to be true from the extensive research I did was not true - years of research compared to an incredulous opinion, held firmly. Only, in this instance, the subject matter was something very personal to me. There's the rub, isn't it always? Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses have become notorious for pushing our buttons.

Personal opinion held fiercely and firmly and often without real evidence to back it up is bias. There's a lot of that going around, right now. We're all guilty at various times. Saturn in Sagittarius is all three - the rigid opinion, the bias and the direct personal experience / truth to validate it.

In all actuality, you could say I do not know with 100% certainty what I have extensively researched is true - because I wasn't there, it didn't happen to me - but when faced with those who hold a strong opinion (with next to no factual information to back it up), how would you feel? This sort of thing is going on everywhere.

Saturn in Sagittarius is kicking up, as promised and as predicted, a heck of a lot of truths, AND untruths - outright lies, massive exaggeration, hyperbolic statements, double speak, preaching, bias - all Sagittarius keywords. 

 Saturn is barriers and there's talk of Walls being built to keep difference cultures apart (Sagittarius). Sagittarius-themed freedom of movement has been restricted (Saturn) for certain races (Sagittarius). But then reading this, you already know that don't you. The truth and the manifestations are self-evident. For those willing to open their eyes and see.

But seeing things the way they really are is a bitter medicine we all must take, sooner or later. We got out the swamps of Saturn in Scorpio, but are we now rigid and jaded because of what we have been through, or are we Willing to be Open and Willing to be Honest; to live authentically?

It shows real strength and courage now to admit a lie. And even more courage to make amends for the damage caused by deceit.

Scorpio games have no place here, anymore. Authenticity demands a strict policy: We Walk what we Talk, we Practice what we Preach. These are the times, then, when we begin to see mass discrepancies between What People Promote and What TheyActually Do. So pay attention.

We each live under our own inner Judge and Jury, Defense and Prosecutor. Be careful who you point at, and what you blame them for, now.

Saturn in Sag says Live it and Thus Present It With Validity or Shut Up. But Saturn in Sagittarius is the person who THINKS they have the answer and those who KNOW they hold the truth..and both can be equally dangerous.

How can we be honest with each other and still get along?

Answer that with the practical experience and application of your own life.

If you have experienced heightened feelings of late or found yourself caught up in the theatrics and dramatics of life on planet earth, go easy on yourself. It's hard not to take things personally, it's difficult to "be in this world but not of it", and it's challenging to disengage from drama when you suddenly find yourself thrust into it. When our egos are engaged, it's hard not to fight on its behalf. But when there's nothing to prove, what then?

The Leo Full Moon Eclipse is the ideal time, however, to Follow Your Bliss, the find that which uplifts your heart and excites you. That which makes you feel alive and joyful. Instead of fighting anything or anyone, refocus back into a more playful, creative state

What can you create out of the chaos right now? What can you pluck from the air and download into reality?

If we remember that we can each hurt each other's feelings, or rather trigger each other's secret inner wounds without even knowing it, as long as there's a willingness to come back together in authenticity, Truth and Trust will grow stronger and it's in this form of intimacy where alliances are forged that nothing can defeat. Saturn in Sagittarius can be the commitment to live a certain way for the rest of your life and beyond

And you cannot stop Ideas whose time have come.

Get busy in the direction of your Truth, then In These Days to uphold the principles that you know to be The Right Thing, the Higher path. Stand behind Truth no matter what. Utter commitment. Daily integrity. Coupled with a childlike sense of innocence

and joy, to be in the current cosmic flow. It's not meant to be all Saturn-weight and serious somber songs.

This Full Moon is in Leo the proud and playful Lion. Each time you carve out Play Time this week, (self-expression time, silly time, laughter time, quality time) you offset aggression, frustration and ultimately minimize destructive drama...

Enjoy Yourself: Venus in Aries

Enjoy Yourself

Venus (love, appreciation, enjoyment) is now in Aries (Selfhood).

This alignment (at play until June 6) facilitates the process of letting us all fall back in love with ourselves, as we are in this Moment. 

For the weeks ahead then, enjoy your own company. A movie, alone perhaps? A solo meal?
Celebrate your uniqueness and independence as you go about your days. Do the things that YOU like. Eat the foods you enjoy. Pursue the things that ignite a flame in your heartEnjoy, admire and appreciate the fact you have your own opinion, your own methods and your own style, no matter who surrounds you and what they themselves like to think or do.

Since no one else gets the privilege of being you, this lifetime, you get to be you.  So you may as well enjoy the job and thoroughly enjoy yourself in the process.

Impulsive reactions along with impulse purchases increase. We can't help but takes things personal, when our egos are so flagrantly on the line. The risk of pain is high, but that's where the sweetest pleasure is. Just ask any moth what it thinks of a flame. Flare-ups then, are to be expected when desires (Venus) heat up (Aries, first fire).

We want Instant Gratification but don't mind the Hunt, the Thrill, and the Chase. Hormones run higher now, thus pheromones too. Adrenalin pumps quicker, leading to people rushing more - notice more sirens, speeding, accidents, road rage, middle fingers, harsh words. Also, Love At First Sign is a fascinating hallmark of this alignment. Whether it's a trinket in a window that you just can't possibly live without, or the sexy someone you must have, caution is abandoned for plunging in head first, chasing what it is that we want. Love comes hot, heavy and fast but attractions may burn out too quickly,

Directness is the winner's strategy now. Flirting too. being upfront. Asking. Initiating. Get the ball rolling.

These are Aries attributes and with Venus the Goddess of Peace in the Sign of War, she has to step up her game to engage and actively attract that which she desires. The shy don't get far, under this astro-weather. But the daring do.  If Venus is manipulating, however, Aries energy could be skewed, using the tools of anger, aggression, urgency and pushiness to get what we want, at the expense of cooperation, potentially sabotaging the very relationships we want.

Enjoy standing up for yourself, but pick your battles. Expect people to come off as pushier, but hopefully with a smile that you can't resist giving in to. We may get bored quickly with what comes too easily, now.

We may even enjoy fighting, to various degrees, as we stake our claim, or our plot of land and defend it with all we've got. Mars, the warrior is also in Aries upping the selfishness that drives everyone to fulfil their own needs.

In the weeks ahead, it may be everyone for themselves, but that's not a bad thing. it simply is an opportunity to make your life more about you.

If you're enmeshed with demanding types, this is the week to take up more space. Stretching your hands wide and your legs (to make a large star shape)  has been proven to "up our personal confidence and posture" if we hold it for a few minutes before important events, or when we need to be bolder and more confident. Give it a shot this week, and let me know your results.

Give yourself dessert first. Play more. Fall in love with you You-As-You-Currently-Are, in the mirror, on the street, at work or amongst friends, even - or especially - when you're alone.
Unleashing childlike innocence allows for a playful energy that draws others nearer and lightens up their own inner boy or girl. 

Find ways to enjoy yourself, appreciate yourself and love yourself in better and healthier ways.

Who are you now? And what do you enjoy?

Be wary this week of the power of I AM - and only finish that sentence with strength and capability.

I am feeling nervous but I AM brave.
I don't feel like it but I AM going to.
No matter what anyone says or does, I AM _________

 Dare to enjoy and appreciate yourself, fully, without guilt obligation, shame or fear.

If you're going to Do it, Enjoy it.
