Better the devil you know than the one you don’t.
Saturn has one hell of a nasty rep. * see horns ^
Who wouldn’t love restriction, responsibilities, duty, and being an olde sour pessimistic, melancholy workaholic cuss ! ! . . ?! . . . anyone ? haha yeeeah. exactly.
I was thinking the other day this ‘devil you know business’ may as well be my anthem, code, motto whatever. Why ? Well, being the child of 2 Capricorn Suns, and a Cap rising myself, I have had Saturn up my nostril since. . . well, ever.
I have Saturn retrograde in its fall in Aries 3rd. For non – astro folks, that translates as self (1st house) restrictions on any and all actions (Mars rules Aries) and thinking (3rd house is thinking). Is why I go on & On & ON about mindful thoughts and morphing the business model in the brainpan to a more happy blissful state.
Ya know, Saturn is the new sunshine and rainbows and all that jazz.
Saturn IS actually helpful – it keeps us tethered to this planet, makes juice into concentrate, it’s the groovy trick that keeps us from flying out of the Round UP rides.
Ahem. but seriously, what got me started on this Saturn post ?
Kids in the Hall ! !
::::: I AM CRUSHING YOUR HEAD ::::::
Saturn. the Workhorse. is. on. my. Midheaven.
Dear Goddess of All Things Groovy,
Will there ever be frolick for me at the festy again ?!
Please say yes !
Yours truly, Gneissest Moon Evah
HA ! sorta.
Nah, just kidding, I will obviously live with Saturn, but you get my point. Lots and lots of work, but Saturn requires it. The rewards are great, a job well done, self- satisfaction, you know, that sittin’ on top of the world thang.
I find this is an excellent time to noodle around with facing some Saturnian fears as well . . . brave ones can tell me how I do in the comments . . . I’ll go first !
FACES of FEAR in Fuchsia for fun
Saturn in Aries or 1st house: head trauma, accidental violence, facial scars, dentists drill, migraines, fumbling the ball or worse yet – an interception
Saturn in Taurus or 2nd house: choking, poverty, deadlines, unreliability, theft of personal objects, frenetic jazz and or opera crescendos
Saturn in Gemini or 3rd house: asphyxiation, inability to communicate, being pigeonholed or illogical, stuck in a corner with boring people who never shut up

Some of the Saturnian things above are in jest, but all are shades of truth. Hope you find it insightful / delightful more than frightful. Each is a general read – not taking into account your personal natal chart and aspects, which will reveal many layers beyond the above.
My Saturn is Aries 3, so I read both Aries / 3rd house to flesh out my Saturn bones.
Follow the same template for your own aspects.
Speaking of Saturn pressing down, time flies when I work 24/8. It is late, and Labor day was exactly that – it is TIME to pillow crash.
peace out peeps
