Saturn in Scorpio Transit, w/Mercury involved, Saturn Retrograde 2014


I have transiting Saturn Squaring my Mercury,
and I’m finding it very hard to write.

It would be a perfect time to take more pictures,
to find something moving, and make it still.

People just endlessly saying no to me,
I’m trying to take it on,
to embody the energy and have something substantial to say…

You know what I have?

Saturn is good at fear.
Frozen in place,
with my progressed Moon in Pisces,
like a fish on repeat, swimming the same circle. Or gasping for air.
Mouth open, ineffectual.


Now in real life, I continue to do everything,
still answering emails, still making calls, still showing up.
If I am on time the other person will be late.
Mistakes are hi-lit what did I write? What did I say?

It is as though I am walking a treadmill,
faster and faster, why haven’t I arrived yet?
No visible result.

Will it be exactly as a treadmill,
where, when it is over I have not gone anywhere, but I am stronger?

Oh but I need to go!

Saturn stands arms crossed, he paces the hall,
back and forth,
the only degrees Saturn covers between May 24th, and September 14th, are 17 and 18

Mercury is a key player in all charts, and for me, it’s near to the heart of it,
I have Mercury in Leo. Without my roar, I’m reduced to my come hither eyes, and there is only so much they know how to say!
Eyes have never been good at paperwork, and with Saturn (time) in bad aspect to the winged messenger, timing is slow, and timing is off.

What does 17 and 18 degrees Scorpio hit in your chart?
Where is the X-ray shown on you?
Where are you brought to your knees?

You are supposed to fix it now, or step back and allow it to be fixed.
The Doctor makes an incision,
what you have to do is not rip your stitches, heal.
Saturn Retrograde = Restructure

Between death, (Saturn) and death (Pluto)
I mean, between, fear and power, between rules and sex,
I mean between limitations and inequality, between authority and compulsion
I mean between the law and decay,

They are working in tandem these two,
to build deep (pluto) structures (saturn) or I should say we are working the Saturn trying to build the structures of a new life,
We watch as Pluto casts his line, and we try to see the hook, before we swallow.

Jupiter continues to bless us and the torque is amazing.
Opportunities abound, but only a difficult one will do!

Mercury drags us back over the same impossible ground,
willing us to find an answer in Gemini,
these are not conceptual problems, but circumstances, real life developments subject to pressure.
Could a clever mind be the way out?
Well, a dull one won’t help!

Something to consider if it is your LEO getting the hit,
is that Uranus trines while Saturn squares.
Lucky Break with a couple of setbacks?
Could be!

Generosity (Jupiter) won’t solve everything but it will come close.
Mars, not one to be counted out, as he approaches his Uranus opposition,
Keep your composure, play the hand you are dealt.
and Neptune… he is the one to watch out for… dreams still echoing out from that lunation…SLIPERRY
Eyes on the ball, Kittens, eyes on the ball.


Love YOU!!!

    Saturn now sits between my Sun/Venus at 15 deg Scorpio and Neptune at 21 deg Scorpio. I’ve no choice but to accept a new paradigm of relationship with much clearer boundaries but also it hurts the way the adjustment has been made. Trying to take responsibility for my thoughts and soothe my inner child who simply wants what she wants even when she clearly can’t get it.

    Saturn is also square my MC at 18 Leo and opposite my North node at 16 Taurus. Releasing the restrictions and pain around my deeply embedded energy (South node) while retaining all the valuable lessons is possible by making a professional shift.

      Hey Lee,
      Thanks for writing! That’s a lot of pressure points the old man (saturn) has managed to acupuncture at once.It sounds like you are looking at everything with clear eyes and practicality. <3 Stamina (Taurus) seems to key to making it through these proceedings. Stamina, and what to let go. (Scorpio) Being true to your values while releasing any control of the proceedings. How to take control of your own life without any control over anyone else's. I guess that feeds into the Libra north node biz we have going. Values. (Saturn exalted in libra, libra and taurus ruled by venus... oh astrology you are endless!) Here is wishing you get just what you need, and that the juice, as they say, is worth the squeeze!. xox

    Saturn is currently in my 6th house near my natal Neptune at 20 degrees. I’m having terrible joint pain, I will be having blood work next week to see if I have rheumatoid arthritis like my mom had at my age 🙁

    Plus, since I’m whining anyway….I have had two best friends in my life. I lost both of them when Saturn was in Scorpio, one in 1982 and the second one in 2013. What is that shit?! Go away Saturn

      Hi Tam!
      Thanks for writing! I’m so sorry you are in pain! I do hope you don’t have arthritis, but I also hope they find out what it is, so you can have some relief. OW!

      Losing friends is the worst because nothing can replace them. I mean, you make new or other friends, but there is only one of everyone. I totally feel for you. Have I made you feel worse? I hope not! I find with Saturn in Scorp there are very few people who come through as trustworthy/sincere; often it gets used as selfish energy, very private and unforgiving, so many tests, not even your tests per se, but just the set up of reality. People fall by the wayside and I just don’t like that about it all. I mean, Saturn in Scorpio can bond super deep, if it goes that way, but so often it does not. hatehate. Annnnyway! It’ll be gone soon, and Saturn in Sag. will show up!… to be continued… xox
