The arrival of November reminds me that winter is soon to come, however this fall there is an added chill, and it has nothing to do with the weather. With Saturn leaving Virgo and entering the sign of Libra on Oct. 30th, 2009 the relationship with yourself and your goals will be strongly tested. The shift of Saturn into a new sign has put it in square to Pluto, form the 7th house (Libra) of your truth and relationships to the 10th house (Capricorn) of your goals and career. What you will feel is tension and that time is running out. The truth is that all resistance is present to help you solidify and define your beliefs and your sense of self; what you are feeling now is the gap between where you are and where you want to be, and the pressure to close that gap. The choice is simple: get on the train or get off – believe or don’t believe! The time has passed to ask permission to be who you are; stop waiting for others to acknowledge your talent and what you already know. Stop dividing yourself and focus on you and your dreams, if you do you may just get the rewards and very soon.
Each of us has betrayed ourselves in our own way. We don’t want to offend those we care about; we protect others, but the truth is, we’re protecting ourselves. When you demand more of you for you, you will demand more from others and put up with less disrespect and immaturity. It’s time for those who believe to move ahead and for those who complain and feel like a victim, to dig their hole deeper. The message is: you don’t have to be perfect and you can do more than you think can. As Michael Jackson sang in the new documentary --“This is it”! It’s time to do it, believe it, own it, let go of it, but don’t be neutral -- take a stand.
Dreams that become real, loose their glow because reality is present. Nothing is yours unless you’re willing to fight for it. Libra, the sign hosting Saturn, is all about truth and leadership. It is not easy to stand alone in what you believe and through the force of your convictions attract support. Whenever one tries to separate from the pack, there is always resistance and sometimes even an attack. However, when you believe in what you are doing and show others your faith and strength, then you begin to dissolve the resistance and create support. Saturn will retrograde back into Virgo on April 8, 2010 At this time you may feel as if you’re regressing, or you may just be doing the work that needs to get done, before you actually move forward again on July 23, 2010. So be prepared to stand up for yourself and what you want to happen. Don’t let the forces throw you off-center or derail you from your path. The closer you get to success the more reality challenges your ideals and dreams and the more the world requires of you. People will fight you for the position you want. Whoever believes more in themselves will get the chance to prove their talent.
The Saturn Pluto Square According To Sun Sign
ARIES (March 21 – April 19): If you know who you are and what you want from life then moving forward now won’t be so difficult. If you’re feeling frustrated it’s time to adjust your ideals with reality and know that what you’re letting go of is only the veneer. If you can hold on to the essence and not be afraid to reshape the façade or image that you started with, then you can now make it happen in a new way. Of course it will require a leap of faith, but that’s what you are good at.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The challenge for this earth sign will be to see that being responsible does not limit your freedom or change your beliefs. This only happens when life has to be all or nothing – something you may have found yourself a victim of. When you learn to give just what is needed to make something work and retain something for yourself, then being a success is not a burden, on the contrary, it is your playground.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21): What part of your life are you not in charge of? If you don’t have a dream then it’s time to get one. You take on too much, divide yourself too thin and then wonder why things don’t move. Narrow your focus; eliminate what distracts you from yourself. Plug the holes in your life and let go of people, projects, and attitudes that get in the way of your success. You won’t regret it, on the contrary, what you will experience is empowerment.
CANCER (June 22- July 22): As the first water sign you seem passive but the truth is, most of the time you’re in control. You may not realize that what you don’t do makes just as much of a statement as what you do. It’s time to come out of hiding and be noticed. You can no longer just wish for your desires and dreams to come true. They need your presence to become a reality – so take the first step and just show up.
LEO (July 23- Aug 22): Pleasing others is over, it’s time to show the world who you really are and to feel the power of being true to yourself. Sure it’s a risk, but do you really care what others think and don’t you want to know who is with you for the right reasons and who isn’t? Faith is gained by stepping into the unknown and realizing how supported you really are. You’re used to doing it all alone; now it’s time to let others help you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Money and finances seen to be at the center of your struggle, but the battle is really about what’s important to you. You have control issues so you are either in total control or you’ve let someone else take over. Either way you’ve got to make adjusts in order to move forward. So do what’s necessary then get back on tract, step up to the plate and take charge of your destiny.
LIBRA (Sept 23- Oct.23): What is your truth and how do you present it to the world? If you’re too invested in approval or validation, if you’re too afraid of standing alone then this will be a challenging time. Sooner or later your path boils down to how much you believe in yourself and what you are doing. So start standing up for you, ask for what you want. Don’t be afraid to impose yourself gracefully on those who can help you.
SCORPIO (Oct 24- Nov 21): Faith is a Scorpio challenge. If you lack confidence and feel the world is against you then you may avoid putting yourself on the line and that would be a mistake. It’s time to act. You’ve can actually do both. Know what to protect and what not to. Don’t protect your talent and your power; if others can’t handle it that’s their problem. Get rid of whatever is holding you back, and bring the bare truth to the table. It’s time to travel light.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22- Dec 21): What you value and who you want to be may require a few changes. You need to support your dreams and goals and not undermine them by your choices and actions. Put your money where your mouth is; give yourself what you need even if it depletes your savings or your time. You’ve got to be the investment now. When you value yourself, you reach higher and the higher up you are the better the perspective and the easier it is to make the best choice.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22- Jan 19) You vs. your career. You want a bigger piece of the pie and you’re about to get it if you can break through your own fears and accept that you deserve it. You have conquered your environment and so now it’s time to adjust your goals. To have it all, you’ve got to ask for more and get the help you need to accomplish your goals.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20- Feb 18): What you believe is what you create. To have what you want you need to stand up for what is yours and claim it from the universe. Don’t accept a maybe or a no. Convince others by showing them you believe in you. The challenge is to put yourself first and know what you want. Your bleeding heart often stops you from doing this. However, once you can focus on you, others will support you and offer help.
PISCES (Feb 19- March 20): Your higher self is calling and the only thing that is holding you back is your need to be in control or the belief that you deserve something wonderful to happen to you. It’s time to have faith that what is yours is yours and no one can take it from you. How you feel about you is the problem, yes it’s time to let go of the pain and wounds from the past. Release it; create a new image of yourself based on the best that you can be. Then step into that image and make your life happen.
