Saturn Station Direct 10:17 PM EDT
Sagittarius Moon is full of inspiration and motivation to go forth and be free, and today’s lunar aspects can make the way in which we go about that unpredictable. Moon will sextile Mercury Retrograde in Libra at 12:49 PM EDT, which can cause blunt force communication trauma in relationships…choose words carefully here, Sagittarius Moon is incredibly direct and Mercury Retrograde in Libra has the gloves off, consideration isn’t nearly as cautious as Libra typically would be. Moon will then sextile Mars in Libra at 3:12 PM EDT, which can take any miscommunication or frustrations from Mercury Retro, and lead to aggression, especially passive aggression to inflame. Moon will sextile Sun in Libra at 4:45 PM EDT, illuminating our reasons for doing what we are doing, and helping us to weigh the balance of our actions. Moon will square Neptune in Pisces at precisely the minute of Saturn Station Direct…this tension adds a dynamic of spiritual revelation to Saturn’s standstill. Whatever the right path may be, we can catch glimpses of it tonight.
Saturn will Station Direct at 6 degrees Aquarius at 10:17 PM EDT after a long Retrograde that began on May 23 at 13 degrees Aquarius. It’s time to process the lesson’s we’ve encountered since then. Saturn brings lessons of discipline, karma, and structure…it guides us to do what we need to do in order to be our very best. Saturn is not comfortable, and when we aren’t doing what’s right, we see obstacles arise. In Aquarius, goal-oriented Saturn strives to be egalitarian, and humanitarian. We need to look at the bigger picture and where we fit into it. Aquarius is ever the rebel, striking out to do what’s right regardless of those around us, and this Station Direct can help to point the way to where we need to connect with our tribe, what role we encompass and how to fulfill it. This Station Direct may entail deep reconsiderations of decisions that may have gone against our core principles, and this is an opportunity to adjust our principles to what we’ve learned about the world in the past 5 months. Saturn in Aquarius is relentlessly principled, and this is a wake up call to define where we truly stand. Saturn Station is incredibly intense, and this effect will last for 5 days of Saturn grinding on this degree and minute before it begins to slowly creep forward in Direct apparent motion. Today in particular is a window of opportunity to think about changes that need to be made, things that have been swirling in our heads as Aquarius is a powerfully mental sign, and ground them into Saturnian reality. Aquarius is the sign of future oriented planning, and innovative vision, and Saturn Station Direct inspires us to get moving on plans, to be all action that backs up our talk. Pluto Station the other day was all about what we need to tear down in order to move forward, and Saturn now coming to a standstill is all about the ethics with which we go forth.
