The new moon in Libra arrives this afternoon, almost exactly opposite Uranus. It’s a day for big surprises!
I was surprised when I decided to look at my own planetary placements and I discovered that Saturn is finally going to make its third and final opposition to my natal Jupiter any day now. What a relief!
The initial opposition occurred in late January. It was around that time that I was growing increasingly disillusioned with my employer. Looking back at my blog posts, though, reveals that I was growing increasingly optimistic about the book I was writing. Saturn made its retrograde pass over the same point on June 25. Strangely, I quit my dead-end job the next day and devoted myself to finishing my book. Now, with my book in my hands (I received my own copies two days ago), Saturn is making its third and final contact with Jupiter. It will be out of its retrograde shadow in about six weeks.
More than anything, I want to believe that I am on the right path. However, when Saturn gets involved in something like this, nothing seems to be moving quickly enough. I keep wondering if I made a mistake by choosing to revisit my writing career, but I’m a Capricorn, so I understand that success usually doesn’t happen overnight. Still, I am eager to get things moving along. Saturn’s snail pace is killing me right now.
As mentioned already, this aspect will abate once Saturn moves out of its retrograde shadow. With today’s new moon in my first house, I should probably take this time to work on some personal development, like doing more yoga and getting out of my house a little more. If any part of my life has suffered during Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius (my solar twelfth house), it has been my social life. I’ve been far too introspective for the past couple of years and too eager to be left to my own devices. When I look at the result — my book — it was worth it. But it’s time for a change. I need to get out into the world and make everyone else believe in me as much as I believe in myself.
I guess I have just resolved to take my shameless self-promotion to an all-new level. Oh well! I suppose there are worse things I could do.
