Astro-Update: A Saturnian coloured New Moon in Sagittarius
Today, Monday Dec 18, the New Moon in Sagittarius occurs at 5:31 pm AEDT. It is conjunct Saturn, [and trine Uranus in Aries.] Then in the early hours of Wednesday Dec 22 AEDT, Saturn enters Capricorn, the sign of it’s rulership where it will reside for the next 3 years [minus a brief forward foray into Aquarius from March to July 2020]. And if that’s not enough Saturn for you it will conjoin the Sun in Capricorn, soon after the Capricorn Solstice on Friday Dec 22 AEDT.
Here’s an amplification of the Saturn planetary archetype to help gain an understanding of the spirit of the times we are about to live through.
Saturn [Ruler of Capricorn]
– the Lord of Karma – ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’; actions have consequences; the karmic chain 

  • the Grim Reaper- rules over time in sequence and duration, chronological time, ‘Old Father Time’

  • the Father Principle; plays the father role, visits the sins of the father on the sons

  • disciplines, punishes, issues orders, lays down the law
      – instructs on the basis of precedent, custom, tradition

  • insists on things being done correctly, in accord with proper procedure, in the proper manner; according to convention, according to the rules, as they have always been done; in accord with the formal requirements of ritual, of ceremony
  • matures with age – ‘old when young, young when old’ – or becomes crushed, defeated, embittered
      – endures, persists, overcomes obstacles, gets the job done


  – commits, marries, sees things through to the end, completes
  – contains – [the skin] supports – [the skeleton] 
  – focuses, consolidates, concentrates, conserves, retains, stabilizes, crystallizes


  – draws boundaries, gives definition


     – limits, constricts, restricts
  – delays, tests, inhibits, frustrates 
  – criticizes, condemns
  – hardens, chills, freezes


  – contracts, withdraws, withholds


  – closes, clenches, tightens, holds on

  – gets depressed, heavy, burdened; tense, afraid, melancholic; trapped in the past, in repetitious limiting patterns and stories, in automatic reactions based on past situations


 – proceeds slowly, carefully, respectfully, mindfully, consciously; with presence, awareness, stillness, e.g Vipassana walk, Zen tea ceremony, making love Barry Long style ..
  – lives life in truth, at one with that which is 
– takes responsibility, doesn’t complain
  – values loyalty, experience, things that last over time; the family name, continuing the family line 
  – is concerned about the world the children will inherit, and the values they will live by
