The five planets before Saturn that are closer to the Sun were considered within the sphere of its “ring-pass-not” and the domain of the known world. This contributed to Saturn’s representation as the master of time, setting limits in life and materialistic accomplishments. Saturn symbolizes a commitment to precedence that defines our collective past and focuses our attachments to rationality.
Although the three planets beyond Saturn are invisible to the unaided eye, our visions may symbolically pass through the sparkling lens of Saturn’s rings and transcend the limits of the known. These are referred to as transpersonal planets, as they offer an unobstructed worldview that may release us from the limitation and delusion of our separateness, and draw us closer to the realm of essential oneness.
During 2017, Saturn aligns with the galactic center, located at 27° Sagittarius. This meaningful proximity occurs three times, near March 8th, May 6th and November 25th. We may use these periods to explore when a “ring-pass-not” is operating in our own lives, in areas where we hold to circumscribed limits that keep recycling the past. We may allow for the pull of new expectations to liberate our outworn borders, and wisely proceed unbounded.
As Saturn poises at the portal of the massive black hole, which is the rotational center that spins our galaxy, it serves to expand the boundaries of our collective “ring-pass-not.” This emancipation allows us to reconnect energetically with our celestial origins, and consciously evolve our humanity.
Let’s practice beaming our soul-dusted starlight into the heart of the Milky Way, and reflect the gleam of enlightenment everywhere.
We may follow the transiting Sun's passage through the "Houses" (the twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart to attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death. The Sun spends about a month highlighting the affairs of each house, completing a full cycle in one year. Use the guide below to cultivate and enrich your Solar aspirations.
The cycle of Lunar phases offers us an inner guidance system for insight into our life experiences. Each lunation cycle consists of eight phases which reflect gradual and distinct perceptual shifts as the Sun/Moon angle changes. Like changing lenses, our subjective Moon views shift every 3.5 days into the next phase.
