Are you feeling discouraged? Held back? Denied the life that you want to live? If so, you are not alone! We all go through periods of restrictions, obstacles, discouragement, and we feel that we are beating ourselves against the wall hoping that we can get through to the other side. We all go through it.
Three years ago, I was at a turning point in my life. The world around me had changed in a way that I could no longer manage myself or my business the way that I had managed it up to that point. I was at a breaking point, and although I had achieved a lot in my 40 years on the planet, I fell into a despair that ultimately changed my life. My fears got me to where I was, but I was not going to let them rule me forever. In the process of this change, I had to get busy with the art of living.
On Tuesday, we have an extremely frustrating aspect — The Sun in Aquarius will square Saturn in Scorpio. This aspect can be depressive, very difficult to handle, and can lead to enormous frustrations. You may feel held back by others, by life, or even by your lack of taking personal responsibility. Your energy may be low and you may fall into the depths of despair. I am going to be blunt – this aspect is not easy. However, this energy is necessary for our personal soul growth and evolution.
“The purpose of discouragement is to reveal weaknesses in your conception of yourself and show where you must work to gain greater confidence in yourself.” (Hand pg. 76)
I found this sentence to be very enlightening. I have read Hand’s book numerous times as an astrologer or astrological student, it is one of the cornerstone textbooks that any practicing or student astrologer should have on their shelves. However, I had never looked at discouragement (possibly because I was not ready) in this manner.
Today, we have an opportunity to look at our personal conception of ourselves. How do you see yourself on the most basic level? Are you where you want to be in life? Are your beliefs about yourself accurate or are they based on fears that may be limiting you? In order to work with Saturn, we must get deep and often get our hands dirty in the darkest corners of our psyche. In many ways, we are required under this transit to refine ourselves and become more real in order to achieve personal fulfillment. By going through this inner process we will find our personal authenticity and reclaim our dignity.
