The Saturn effect

Whew. It's been quite a week, with the Full Moon opposing Saturn on Tuesday, and the Saturn-Sun alignment in Libra on Thursday. Relationship issues that have been with us since last fall (when Venus was also in Scorpio) have recycled for another level of completion.

In general, Saturn requires that we be responsible, mature and practical. It also often insists that we learn a new level of detachment from the emotional content of whatever issues have arisen, that we take the opportunity to focus on what needs to be done to improve situations rather than get caught up in the emotions.

With Venus now in Scorpio, we do need to enter the place of the darker emotions, to sort through them and feel their effects as a way of deepening our self-understanding and acceptance -- but Saturn in Libra insists that we not wallow in the darkness, that we expedite our exit by taking responsibility for ourselves, for whatever condition our relationships are in, and for what needs to be done to clean up the mess.

And yes, there are also themes of completion here, especially with those relationships that feel "karmic" in nature.

Gotta love Saturn, eh?


  1. Pam,

    The page for your teleclass states that the Mayan calendar comes to an end on 2012. Is that a typo? Because the calendar ends on Oct 28, 2011. So it should be 2011 and not 2012. I think its a typo :)

    Yup! The two eclipses on Nov 25 and Dec 10 will be powerful in Sagittarius and Gemini. They happen during Mercury Retrograde. That's going to be interesting :)


  2. Hi TB -- Traditionally, the Mayan Calendar does end in 2012, but Carl Calleman's calculations moved it to October of this year. Still, the vast majority of mainstream thinks of 2012 as being the "end times" -- hence the movies and hype, etc...

  3. Pam,

    I know that the next 2 weeks are a turning point for many of us. As you state in your weekly journal:

    "For the next two weeks especially -- with the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Scorpio, and the Scorpio New Moon on October 26 -- we will be assisted on many levels in releasing the past so that we, too, can create new life."

    Part of me is a little scared of starting out on a clean slate......of the unknown....of a whole new way of being.


  4. I'm counting the days till November 11th. Its a powerful energy portal.

    It will be a big shift. A shift of the ages in fact but its feel very natural and logical :)
