Life is all about possibilities.
However, the hard truth and reality of possibilities is that they need a good plan. In order to get some of these plans of possibility into place, we need to focus, ground down and be practically minded about our situations. Tough stuff I know! But this is where our old friend (most often foe) comes into play. Nobody knows how to do ‘tough’ better than wise ‘ol Saturn.
On August 25, 2017, Saturn turns direct in his final stretch of Sagittarius – the sign that loves to drum up the possibilities. The Sagittarian archer is finally ready to shoot her arrow and discover some truths about where it has landed. It’s been a long 5-month stretch. Saturn began his retrograde on April 5th, 2017 and it’s been a long crawl through for some of us! But for the moment it’s time to put all the past behind us and use the future to our advantage. The planet of patience is finally about to pay it forward. Saturn direct in Sagittarius here we come.
When a heavy planet, like Saturn, makes a move it’s important in the grand scheme of things.
His forward motion, in particular, can create a push ahead in the area he’s affecting in our lives. His turn direct is also going to activate his ‘positive situation’ with Uranus that’s helping us to step outside the box and do something different. I see Saturn’s move forward as a very good thing — something that helps us move forward in some way.
The caveat of course involves being real. We can use this shift to focus on getting in touch with a more realistic plan. Then it’s from now until the end of December to bring these possibilities to life. I say that because that’s the point when Saturn changes signs and enters an entirely new playing ground. He’ll start operating in Capricorn then (and for the next several years). His influence there can help us make stronger foundations for the things we begin now. But it’s up to us to take the first step and ground down our plans.
Take note of what you’ll be up to when he’s making his turn. Some of us may get some extra insight – or a universal sign – into all the progress we’ve been making over the last 5 months. There are also new beginnings with a twist in play thanks to the recent Solar Eclipse that took place.
A direct move marks the point where we can think about all we’ve learned, how hard we pushed ourselves and how much stronger we are as a result.
At the end of the day, that’s what Saturn does. He pushes us into uncomfortable situations in order to get us closer to what we need to accomplish. No matter how hard we protest—he’s the planet that pushes us out the door and will never take no for an answer. Through the process he gives us the potential to make our dreams real – but we have to be honest with ourselves about what’s possible and what’s not.
It’ll be important to be honest with ourselves during Saturn’s turn …. and let the truth set us free. It’s what Sagittarius knows how to do best, as it envisions all those possibilities.
