America has voted for change. May God Lead down the proper path and guide our new leadership in the year ahead.
(Even though this post is a bit 'intense,' I'm Happier then I've been in Months, so please don't interpret it, as the blues...just another story.)
Well, I came up here to the North East, New York, New England, and Canada, (Toronto) to calm down, feel good, chill out, relax, make a peace with some old friends (without success), and basically prepare for Saturn Return, (Saturn returns to the birth Point in your chart once every 30 years or so). My last Saturn Return in 1978 saw my best bud, Michael Alcana die in a car wreck, (I Have Saturn in the 11th house of friends, so my best one dies) Now, here it is almost 30 years later and I hold my breath as to what Saturn will bring this time. I pray all my close friends are ok, and that my Mom and Dad survive to the 90's and maybe 100. Still, there is a stillness in the air that tells me the destiny of life sometimes seems written and we just have to grin and bear it, as fate takes it's toll.
As an Astrologer, we try to pinpoint what these surgical aspects in our charts are about, so we can prepare for it. No matter what any Astrologer tells you, there is no way to prepare for shock and awe in one's life, as it happens in the deaths of loved ones, the ending of jobs, and the endings of relationships, or losing a pet. I have a much healthier attitude on death and dying by now, having lost so many friends and relatives and I figure they are just being reborn into a new life, so try not to be so upset when someone goes. The draw of karma sometimes is outlined by how close you are to people, how much you love them, and should they die, how much the loss affects you. November has not been a very good month in general historically for my family as it seems, many of them pass away in that month, so we all kind of just 'hold our breath,' when November comes, hoping no one will fail us. I felt so bad the other day, I wasn't sure I was going to make it, but some herbs, vitamins, meditation and solid sleep helped that out, along with prayer, visualization and giving thanks to the almighty for the blessings and good life I already have.
So many people are affected by Saturn being in Leo. My Mom born in 1918 has Saturn in Leo, then those born 1919, also have it, 30 years later, those born in 1947, 1948 have Saturn in Leo, then 30 years later, those born in 1977, and 1978 have it. So, Lots of people some turning 30, some turning 60, and some turning 90 are all having their Saturn Cycles. Saturn, the Lord of the sign of Capricorn is also the LORD OF KARMA for us all, and when interpreting Saturn in Sign, house, and geometrical aspect to other planets in your birth chart you can easily zero in on your Life's biggest Karma. Karma, there's that word again, and once again Karma is your biggest obsession, addiction, love, or craving, apart from God and/or the Great Spirit. For me it is Friends, Family, Father, Goals, Humanity, and Knowledge. We get all of that by finding my Saturn in Leo (Family, Father), in the 11th house of Friends, Goals, Humanity and knowledge. When I do leave this Earth I remind myself to embrace God and be able to leave all of that behind. I guess I was tremendously tested when Michael Alcana died at 20 years old, the youngest of my closest friends, and the one who was hardest to let go of. I really got a huge dose of what Karma was when he died suddenly in intensive care, after recovering from surgery and a terrible accident where he rolled over his car in the rain about 5 times, and somehow survived. AFter a lot of family politics he was moved to a hospital in L.A. from Santa Barbara, and died 3 days later. It hit me like an electric shock, like a part of me died, and took a very long time to recover. If you look back at what happened to you from 27 to 30, you could probably discover your own life's largest block of Karma and what you did to embrace it during that time.
The good news, is that I am not alone, because ALL of these people with Saturn in Leo are having Saturn returns now with me, so they are all being confronted by their lives greatest karma. That is exactly why it is so important to love God, love God within, and realize that God is a staple that will never change, and that we can never lose...God can never be defined as Karmic only Dharma, or deeds.
