Saturn in Sagittarius is one of the most powerful influences of the next 2.5 years, as stated in our previous article on the astrological currents of 2015. Let us take a closer look at what this symbol represents, what it is here to teach us and how we can consciously work with this energy to harness and maximize its spiritual potency.
The Qualities of the Archetypes
Saturn, the seventh planet of our Solar system, embodies the earthy principle of maturity, discipline, integrity, strong foundations and high ethics. It serves as the “reality check” in this solar system, teaching responsibility and making us accountable for our actions.
Sagittarius on the other hand, with it’s ruling planet Jupiter, is visionary, boundless, idealistic and dreamy. It stands for the principle of expansion on all levels; spiritually, mentally, physically and philosophically. Together these two archetypes form a powerful duo where contraction and expansion work simultaneously to support balanced, sustained and profound growth.
We live in times of rapid expansion and accelerated growth, especially in the realm of spiritual awareness with access to vast amounts of information. Many of us have been exposed to a variety of spiritual beliefs and traditions, ancient systems of thought and contemporary philosophies.
With Saturn journeying through Sagittarius, our personal belief systems, visions and convictions will undergo a thorough validity check. Practical, realistic Saturn is here to test the solidity of our faith, integrity of our beliefs and maturity of our spiritual choices. It is as if we have been exploring, learning, seeking and studying and now we’ve come to a graduation test.
Questions to Ask Yourself During this Transit:
• How realistic am I about my visions?
• How committed am I to seeing my intentions through?
• Am I compromising my Truth by being a part of certain movement, ideology, religion or spiritual group?
• Is my existing belief system expressing my authentic self?
Because Saturn wants to bring form to our ideas and actuate visions into manifestation, it’s an excellent time to formulate and finalize your long held hopes and dreams. Enroll in advanced education, get that degree, write that book you’ve been dreaming of writing. Step into your personal authority to acknowledge your vision, aspirations and calling.
It’s a great time to start a spiritual practice, or recommit and deepen an existing one. The adventurous Sagittarius and goal-oriented Saturn are opening energies for purposeful travels, trips that expand and enrich your personal quest. Traveling abroad to learn and study are well supported during this focused growth cycle.
Walking the Talk
With Sagittarius holding the principle of Truth and Saturn demanding integrity and accountability, our words, actions and choices will be put under continuous scrutiny. The Cosmic Lie Detector is ON and like never before we are called to walk our talk and step into full alignment with our highest Truth.
We’ll experience narrower margins for hypocrisy and won’t get away with anything less than impeccability for long. Wherever we’ve been self-aggrandizing and misaligned in our perspective, we will be exposed and humbled by the ego-stripping hand of Saturn. Channeled unconsciously, Saturn in Sagittarius can manifest itself in self-righteousness, crystallized judgments and dogmatic beliefs. We can however transmute these misaligned expressions by being self-reflective, aware and mindful in our attitudes and personal philosophies.
On the evolutionary level, Saturn in Sagittarius calls for the ultimate in Spiritual Mastery. This duo combine to create the Teacher who embodies his messages, the Guru who lives according to her path, the Preacher who practices what he preaches.
Saturn in Sagittarius is the beauty of Universal Law manifested and expressed through human beings. We all have that inner Priest and Priestess within us. Let us tune into our inner Wisdom and start embodying the ultimate Mastery.
