Saturn and the Moon’s South Node

Her New Tatoo

When transiting Saturn and the South Node of the Moon met up in October ’07 some mention was made of it at my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington.

But here are some general notes on the pairing of Saturn (separation; restriction principle; loss; lessons; denial; control; delay; responsibility; authority; accountability; form), and South Node (SN), a point of separation, past connections, talents and abilities; also has to do with inheritance and family entanglements…and on a psychological level, with neuroses–defensive behavior we developed which made sense at the time but now doesn’t give an appropriate result to our current situation and needs.

Like bashing our noggins against brick walls, falling back on habitual SN behavior is okay as a short respite but if we want better outcomes in our lives, we must change our behavior to match today’s reality. Easy to say, isn’t it?

Funny how we hear much of the “on the ground” phrase which is Saturnian to the nth degree…Saturn is form and substance, earth, soil, crust, skeletal systems, skin–anything that encases and enbounds. Why, without skin our goots would fall out all over the place.

Thanks, Saturn!

‘Cronos’ of olden times, Saturn was once The Boundary to our (known) solar system, a fact shifted greatly by William Hershcel’s discovery of Uranus (then known as Herschel–you can see why although they say that he didn’t ask for the notoriety. He was on to other things.)

It is through “Chronos”—chronology–that we directly see Saturn’s relation to Time and Time Keeping with a capital ‘T’…aka the grim reaper. Yet there are long-lasting rewards for long-term endeavor which are Saturn’s rewards to the faithful and dedicated.

And there’s Sabbath, Saturday–a 24-hour period of Time through which we may see Eternity…all the way back to the first 7th day. Its position in the sequence is sacred, not what you name the day. (The names they can monkey with but remove 7 and 8 falls flat along with the rest. Every seventh day is the Seventh Day.)

Saturn conjunct SN:

extreme limitations; rigid habits out of harmony with the prevailing culture’s methods and ideas;  isolation and seclusion; cooperation is the lesson; painstaking attention to detail as all external influences may be disregarded–esp in obscure fields; individualism achieves in a class by itself. (Sakoian, Astrologer’s Handbook.)

And depending on Saturn’s condition in your natal and progressed charts, perhaps this transit affecting the Collective is impacting your life just now…if so, write me! Your observations are most welcome at Jude’s Threshold.

For Saturn is the Guardian parked on the doorstep of everyone’s threshold after all…and he brings needed lessons to those he highly values.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
