Saturn, my sun's ruling planet, is the dourest out of all the planets. Karma, restriction, lessons, these are words the commonly crop up when discussing Saturn. It's the cautious part of you, the part that doesn't take anything at face value. And, because Saturn is time, it's the planet that makes you wait. Because of course it is.
But, Saturn doesn't really throw its wet blanket self over your entire life until your Saturn Return (when Saturn is in the exact place it was when you were born), which is around age 28 to 30. And, whichever house Saturn is in, you better have your shit together or it will be all fucked up. The short lesson in Saturn is finished.
I know my intention when writing about astrology was how to relate it and use it as a writer; but, I've found through all of this that not all of my placements are applicable to that. In my case, my Saturn is in the Seventh House, the house of relationships, which I can't imagine pulling directly from. I know, as a writer, you will inevitably and subconsciously pull from yourself and your life. But, that's completely different from taking everything about yourself and your life and laying it all out there. This might be a personal thing, but I have such a block against that. And, we'll just disregard the fact that I'm a few years off from my Saturn Return anyway.
Anyway, my point to all of this is that I think Saturn can get a bad reputation or its intentions for us can be misconstrued. Unlike Pluto's death and rebirth, Saturn is death pure and simple. But, that's not always a bad thing. Its the death of our blinders when it comes to ourselves. It wants us to be self-aware and to examine where we fall short in life. That's why it keeps coming back around and keeps fucking our shit up until we get it. Because it wants us to better ourselves.
