sharpening the blade

I AM a Capricorn rising.
I call it being karmically hobbled from birth.  In my case, I truly was hobbled at birth (Saturn Rx) with hip dysplasia (Sagittarius rules hips).  I had to wear a contraption between my legs so I would to be able to walk as I grew older.  Luckily, (Sagittarius) I had a good doctor (12th house, healing) who fixed me, and set my bones properly (Saturn trine Mars).

My Saturn Rx (bones) is trine Mars in Sagittarius (can be a bit klutzy) from the 3rd (siblings) and I was trying to follow my older brother upstairs, when I crashed and broke my collar-bone.

I don’t remember either accident (Mars hidden in the 12th sign).
Even though I had a rocky start, I walk just fine now, thank you.

Saturn rising means it will be a hard long climb up the mountain, with nothing coming easy and nothing free.  I not only have Saturn in its fall (Aries) but it is retrograde as well.
Having a chart ruler that is a backwards ass taskmaster, is not a lot of fun, I’ll tell ya straight UP.

Now that I am older my retrograde Saturn is beginning to work for me.   I am writing (Saturn in 3rd) about spiritual 12th house matters from a visionary, philosophical, Sagittarian viewpoint.  I like to explore theories and pitch wild ideas out there…

Saturn by transit is in my 9th (Sagittarian) house, so I am learning, writing, and doing charts.  My natal Libra Mercury is busy and trying very hard to find balance.   Saturn transit coming up to natal Mercury with Venus close behind means I am perfecting what I love, my craft.


Saturn-ruled Capricorn doesn’t lower the drawbridge for every caller.

Mars in Sagittarius Quintile Uranus doesn’t give a damn what you believe.
I KNOW what I have SEEN.

Saturn is the sharpening of the blade in my chart, it is the worm-hole of time.

Gravity control + transcendent thinking = crystal clear focus.

Mars in Sagittarius on the 12th is aiming towards evolution of the spiritual self.
It is stealth in the 12th.
It is Jedi.

Check, please

Cardinal Cross time again and how about a reality check.  I need one, it’s been a busy day and more yet to come.  For those of you not familiar with astrology, look for the big red square (each point is in a Cardinal sign) with an ‘X’ in the center.  The ‘X’ lines are oppositions, the shorter red lines are squares.  Squares are inner conflicts, oppositions something someone else does.
Uranus in Aries opposite Saturn in Libra is like trying to hold on to a bucking relationship bronco between self/others.  Mars in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn is walking the tightrope between changing career and herding the family home.

Good news (in blue) is there is also a mystic rectangle, which is two trines (easy energies) and two sextiles ( two opportunities) and a grand trine (big blue triangle) and a kite with two more sextiles.  So there is a lot of good energy bopping around too…!
The opposition in the kite is pointing to Mars and Pluto.  That’s action, desires and where we put our energy (Mars) opposite the big transformer, Pluto.  Feels kinda like a big soul shakedown party.  The whole planet, our country and each and every one of us are going through some rapid changes.

So I made a tarot spread so I could have some more info on the energies.
I did this spread using:
the left card as ASC /top as MC/ right as DC/ bottom as IC/ middle card as The Hub.
The card on the bottom right is the bottom of the deck or the ‘message from spirit’ as Donni calls it.

~~~~~~~~~~
ASC= Koala, upright~~~Live in a place of gratitude and generosity, you may have your secrets as long a you have respect for and do no harm to others.

MC=Waratah, upright~~It is only by the dark night of the soul and grief through loss that we may fully understand the unbridled joy of love and happiness.  Being alive is to accept them both.

DC=Southern Cross, upright~~This is a testing period, a period of changes and endings.  What is needed is courage and fortitude – be mentally and physically strong, keep to your discipline and beliefs.  Do not lose hope, for the beautiful new world to come will far exceed your expectations and imaginings.

IC=Willy Wagtail, upright~~This is the time to communicate your spiritual and emotional truth – openly and honestly.  Face changes and the ending of the old by turning your face to the new.  Find your inner strength to deal with difficulties, and seek the friendship of others when you need it.

Hub (Earth)= Black Swan, reversed~~Turn your sight within to find what is holding you back from your highest good.  Adjust your attitude/altitude to find the opportunities present in your situation.

Spirit=Opal, reversed~~This is a very spiritual card that indicates a time of shedding past habits and negativity.   Find the rainbow of energies available within (chakras) to see the value of your presence in the world and the gifts you have to offer with newfound clarity.

All the best~
