The sun will be stationed in Sag for the next several weeks,
so it's a good time to explore one of the major astrological aspects that is
happening now and for another two years. Saturn is the planet of lessons; the
planet of withholding and resistance to change. Wherever Saturn was in your
chart during the time of your birth will be where you experience some of your
biggest life lessons and where you are likely to experience your most profound
growth. Saturn in Sagittarius creates an interesting energy because
Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, is the sign of expansion, travel, philosophy,
and many loves, while Saturn is the opposite of Sagittarius, grounded,
challenging, and slow moving. With Saturn and the sun both in the Sagittarius
mansion, we might struggle with our religious and spiritual beliefs. We might
also feel a deep sense of loneliness during this holiday season, as Saturn can
make connecting difficult, something Sagittarius usually does with ease. Below
are some tools and suggestions to support you during the time while the sun and
Saturn have joined ranks in Sagittarius.
Do Forgiveness Work
Forgiveness work, what's that? you ask. Forgiveness work can
take many shapes, but for the sake of simplicity, it's a concerted effort to
forgive yourself and others for disappointments and resentments that occurred
during the year. That coworker who didn't acknowledge how much you contributed
to the project can be forgiven now. The argument with your sibling about
something that happened decades ago can be forgiven. The five pounds you gained
this year can be forgiven. Anything you are holding on to can be forgiven
during this time, because Saturn gives us the force we need to dig deep and
pull up old energies that hold us back. Our forgiveness work is all the more
impactful now because the light of the sun shines a brightness on aspects of
ourselves we may have missed previously. And finally, Sagittarius is about
expansion and forgiveness is the pathway to expansion. This might not be a fun
thing to do but it will prove worthy in the future.
Expand Your Mind
Sagittarius loves philosophy and religion. With Jupiter as its
ruler, Sagittarius usually has an expansive view of God, spirituality, and religious
practices. Saturn in Sagittarius could mean that we are tempted to double down
on our religious views and stay as we always been, but the call is to actually challenge
our perspectives, open our minds, and grow. The sun's placement will help you see
clearly your challenging beliefs and the expansive nature of Sagittarius will
help you move past ideas that are limiting. I remind you that lessons from
Saturn are never easy but they are beneficial.
One of the fun aspects of Sagittarius is its thirst for life
and new adventures. Sagittarians are rarely satisfied with the status quo and
will go out of their way for new adventures. They need to stay stimulated and
guess what, stimulation keeps the mind expanding. If you happen to be a stick
in the mud, unwilling to try new things, Saturn will sit on you like a mountain.
But if you're interested in doing new things, seeing new places, and being
busier in your life with fun activities, this is a great time to change. Just
pick one thing that you'd like to try. It doesn't have to be big; don't let
yourself get overwhelmed. The Sagittarius energy will support you in moving
forward, while the Saturn energy will make you uncomfortable enough to remain
in place, and the sun will help you see what you desire.
The beautiful thing about astrology is that by understanding
the energies it presents and how to work with them, it helps us create the
lives we desire. Astrology is not a forecast of our lives but a map helping us
get to our destination. Have fun with Saturn—you can if you stay focused on the
result and have lots of self-care during the process. And remember Sagittarius
is forever optimistic, so there is no downside to leaning into the lessons that
abound right now.
