(For more information or to register, please email Stefanie.) The planet Saturn, Uber-Daddy of the zodiac, dove into the dark, mystical, and treacherous waters of Scorpio a few months ago. This is why life, both personally and collectively, has been so intense in the last several months. If you’ve been feeling raw, exposed, a little [...]

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Take a deep breath. Your zodiac sign has NOT changed. You’re still the sign you thought you were when you woke up this morning. Don’t hang up your bull horns and pretend you’re not stubborn, Taurus. Don’t trade in your sexy black negligee just yet, Scorpio. No reason to be meek, Aries. You’re still an adventurer, Sagittarius. But if you were duped by this morning’s “OMG you’re not the sign you thought you were!” story that’s gone viral on the web, consider yourself in plenty of company.
This is merely a false meme that rears its head every few years. (See this story from 2007). Sometimes, bored editors dig up conspiracy theories to draw traffic — that’s what’s happened here. Amazing, with all the important stuff happening in the world (massive floods, fishes and birds falling from the sky, attempted political assassinations, etc.) Thanks to Twitter and Facebook, the current incarnation of the myth is burning up BlackBerries worldwide. [...]
The Saturn Sisters wish you the most auspicious, magical year you’ve ever had. As we embark on the challenging territory of 2011, you’re probably wondering when all the chaos is going to end. With birds falling out of the sky and fishes dying en masse in rivers worldwide, there’s seemingly something apocalyptic going on on planet Earth. We’re only one year away from the massive transformations that begin in 2012. There’s no reason to worry, however, because the Saturn Sisters are here to guide you.
When the Twin Towers were struck down on 9/11/2001, Saturn, in Gemini (The Twins) was opposing Pluto, in righteous Sagittarius. When Saturn meets Pluto, we experience the heart of darkness, and are forced to face our deepest fears, and our very will to live. Pluto purges secrets, personal and collective.
In the months after 9/11, living in NYC was bleak. We were fed a constant diet of fear; from color-coded terror alerts to anthrax scares, to our soldier’s first footsteps on the ground in Afghanistan. We were bullied into the Patriot Act and gave up our civil liberties. Next came a war of choice against a manufactured enemy. [...]
Last fall, Saturn briefly left the constellation of Virgo and moved into Libra, where it stayed until the spring. Then it retrograded back into Virgo, once again reminding us of Big Daddy Saturn’s lessons of the last few years. Today, Saturn returns to Libra, where it will stay until 2012. We’re revisiting two blog entries we posted last fall to review the themes we’re leaving behind and those we’re about to encounter….
Bet you’re more than ready to say goodbye already, aren’t you? Especially those of you born with Saturn in Virgo. Pull out your party hats because this little sucka is leaving on October 29th and turning out the lights on his way out. It’s now time for the Saturn In Libra folks to step up to the plate and deal with their karma. (Note that Saturn will briefly return to Virgo in a retrograde phase next March; more on that in a few months.) [...]
The Alchemy of the Saturn/Pluto Square: Transforming This Heavy Lead into Gleaming Gold (repost from November 14th, 2009)
Shortly after Saturn’s return to Libra on July 21st, the Saturn/Pluto square comes back around this August. We thought it might be nice to revisit a post from last fall, when the square first hit. Expect more of the same in the coming months, complicated by the Cardinal Cross, the most important astrological event of the century. We’ll be talking a lot about that in posts to come…
In these tough times that seem to be getting tougher every moment, it’s hard to see the light peaking through the cracks of our dark Platonic/Plutonian cave. In an era marked by Pluto in Capricorn, the American Pluto Return, and its 8th Saturn Return, it feels like we’re living on a constant diet of fear, panic, and rage. Our corporate/religious monoliths are threatening to swallow us whole. We are finally figuring out that we’re humans, not merely consumers, and we’re all moving through this massive and chaotic birth canal together. No wonder we’re scared shitless. [...]
Our latest article is up on Lifescript.com. Read your blisteringly hot summer love forecast here. You may want to pour yourself a glass of iced tea first.
When most people think of the Cosmic Taskmaster, better known as King Saturn, they think of words like: mean, cold, dictatorial, brutish, depressing, and harsh. (And those are the kinder adjectives.) But we’re going to tell you a little secret about the ringed planet today, folks: Saturn has a heart, and although it may not be easy to find, it’s certainly worth looking for.
Like a father who pushes you harder and harder to do well in school, Saturn has your best interests in mind. You may not like having to stay up late doing algebra problems until the solutions click, but Saturn will keep you glued to your chair until it happens. You’ll hate him for it, but when you get the A, you’ll probably be grateful. And years later, when that work ethic wins you a stellar job in your field of choice, well, you’ll know that those brutal hours staying inside working while your friends played were well worth it.
