Saturn is a heavy force, both literally and figuratively. Its color is black, its metal is lead, it is all about restriction and death and pain right? Well, a little. But as the Dread Pirate Roberts said “life is pain highness, anyone that says differently is selling something”.
In the last few months I have run into several people who have a fear of Saturn. Two of those people go so far as to avoid invoking Saturn even though they call on all the other planets.
DO NOT DO THIS.
Saturn is a necessary force. Without it the forces of the other planets grow uncontrolled and overtake you. Many of us that have been working Jupiter heavily can attest to the “too much of a good thing” that Jove can bring when not tempered with Saturn.
Left unattended, or worse, ignored out of fear, Saturn can indeed be a terrible influence. But used skillfully Saturns bindings can aid us tremendously.
When your mind is bursting at the seams with inspiration and ideas – Saturn will help you restrict them down so you can actually focus on one of them.
When your business clients are numbering more than you can handle – Saturn will help you focus on the 20 percent that product the 80 percent return.
When overwhelmed with business instead of streamlined creativity, Saturn as god of time will help you bind yourself to what really matters.
When called to let the power of silence and solitude reveal inner and outer truth, Saturn is the power that you shall walk with.
When you are blinded to obvious downfalls by the glittering lights of good intentions and misplaced hope, Saturn will help you see difficulty and danger.
Today is the day of Saturn. Call upon the father of the father of the Gods and channel his influence in strategic and skillful ways.
And while you are doing it, you may as well use more cowbell.
