Radical deconstruction of Saturn Rx ends with a thud


Since April 17 at 6:47pm PDT when Saturn stationed retrograde at 9 degrees Capricorn and the Sun-Uranus conjoined at 28 degrees Aries, our lives have been undergoing a radical deconstruction. Think of it as the baby who learns to topple a stack of blocks before she learns to build something with them. What a mess. Sometimes we must take things apart to discover what they are made of, including ourselves!

It should come as no surprise that on the final day of Saturn’s retrograde period an anonymous senior official inside the White House revealed in a NY Times OpEd piece that “many in [Trump’s] own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations” to protect the country.  What was formerly unthinkable has happened. Unelected White House staffers are calling the shots from the Oval Office, assuring the citizenry that they have the country’s best interests at heart and everything’s gonna be alright.

It’s been that sort of five months:

  • Cuba swore in its first non-Castro president since 1959;
  • North Korea’s President crossed the Korean DMZ for the first time since its creation in 1953;
  • Britain’s Prince Harry married across the color line to US actress, Meghan Markle;
  • Ireland voted to repeal the ban on abortion;
  • Canada legalized cannabis for recreational use;
  • the Presidents of North Korea and the USA met for the first time;
  • China accused the USA of starting the largest economic trade war in history;
  • Apple, followed in quick succession by Amazon, became the first public company to reach the $1 Trillion market capitalization level;
  • the Mueller investigation of interference with the 2016 presidential election gets closer and closer to the POTUS.

Somewhere in each of our lives a revolution is in process.

April’s Sun-Uranus conjunction in Aries acted as the ignition to Saturn’s retrograde period, upending the status quo, precipitating bizarre health problems and accidents, pulling the proverbial rug out from underneath some lives, opening new pathways, opportunities and relationships for others. Schedules were turned inside out and business as usual became a thing of the past.

Some of us took risks and broke from an old role, lifestyle, home or relationship. After all, Saturn Rx had accomplices in the deconstruction process, the retrograde cycles of Mars and Mercury. If your life looks the same as it was in mid-April, you haven’t been paying attention.

It’s now time to put Humpty together again. When Saturn stations direct in a few hours he will gradually propel us through the first two decans of Capricorn [by the end of April, 2019]. When the planet we associate with form and structure is involved in an earthy grand trine, we’re apt to reap more of whatever we sow over the next seven months. Use its energy as building blocks during the coming cycle. Remember to activate the trine’s magic ingredients: work with patience and maturity with one eye on a long term goal (Saturn in Capricorn); embrace those innovations and new experiences that add value and staying power to your life (Uranus in Taurus); and focus mental energies on improving  sustainability and efficiency (Mercury in Virgo).

Now, what’s going on in the Oval Office?

These two charts have been added after the fact for those who study.
