Saturn Moves to Libra

At the end of October, Saturn, the planet of Karma, will transit into Libra where it will stay for over 2 years. Last time Saturn paid a visit to Libra was between the Fall of 1980 to the end of 1982. If you were around then, it will be wise to go back to those punk years and see what happened in your life especially in the realm of relationships, partnerships, significant others, contracts, law and artistic expression. Astrology is the art of cycles and if you can identify what you experienced back then, you might be able to use those experience and memories to both prevent repeating mistakes as well as go after new opportunities you might have missed then.

Saturn in Virgo (Fall 2007-Fall 2009) made us aware of accounting discrepancies on a personal as well as global level. It helped bring down the hubris of certain financial institution, thus orchestrating the current financial recession. Saturn in Libra on the other hand, can help us fix our relationships. When Saturn activates the archetype of Libra it brings about major changes in our partnerships. In the process of fixing and mending the way we relate to people, issues may arise that have been hiding, like dust in the corner. These issues relate to how our parents or caretakers dealt with each others when we were growing up. You can expect some of those early childhood imprints to resurrect. They are coming up into the light no for us to shove them back into the dark. They are resurfacing because they heard that Saturn is in Libra and it’s the most auspicious time for them to be identified, accepted and healed.

Libra is also the sign of contracts and law. We can expect some changes in the justice system, who knows, maybe even legalizing gay marriages. There are going to be very interesting Supreme Court decisions in the next two years that will reflect on the meaning of many different country’s constitutions (if they have one). Art, beauty, music, fashion and design would also go through a makeover. Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty. It could be that we will redefine what is beautiful and how much it’s worth…

Since when Saturn is in Libra it is considered exalted, meaning it has the most powerful expression, we can expect Karma to become instant, as John Lennon so eloquently foretold us. And he should know, since the composer of Instant Karma, was a Libra. There will be justice on both personal and global level. Whatever we have sown so shall we reap in the next two years…
