Well you might ask . . what has cows got to do with Saturn . . . and boundaries? That area where they’re standing is the northern boundary of ‘my’ property . It’s been an ‘issue’ that’s occupied some of my head space for sometime . . . over the last 2 years (during the last Saturn cycle). You see, the boundary fence is in the wrong place . . . considerably further up than it should be . . so the neighbours cows automatically congregate there, as that’s where the gorgeous dam is . . . then they continue on to my place. I don’t mind ’cause they keep the grass down . . . . and they’re nice to have around . . . when they’re not making a god awful racket . . . at 2am in the morning . . right outside my bedroom window! It’s usually when Mum and Bub are caught on different sides of the fence . . . it can be torture . . . trying to sleep. There have been times . . . when I couldn’t stand it anymore. . . up out of bed . . . and chasing these bloody cows all around the paddock at 2am in the morning. . . . not impressed! But they’re naturally sweet . . . of course . . . when they behave!!
So I wanted my ‘own’ animals in the paddock . . . then they wouldn’t get caught on different sides of the fence . . . and it’s nice to have your own . . .I’d never send them off to the abattoir . . . shudder, shudder. But this meant having a new fence put up in the right place so then the boundaries between the properties would be clear. Well . . . you know how neighbours can be (of course . . . always sweet . . . not! . . Lets be real here (more Saturn)). You see I moved to a small country town . . . and I was brought up a city girl . . . and I’m on my own and I’m female . . . so these country blokes reckon they have me pegged . . . . bloody infuriating. I tried my best . . . I was friendly, I was considerate (my usual self), I was cheerful, I was polite and positive . . . but he continued (my male neighbour) to walk all over me. Yes it did eventually dawn on me. . . . .BOUNDARIES marilyn . . . .YOU NEED BOUNDARIES! And interestingly with this last Saturn in Libra cycle . . .RELATIONSHIPS . . . most definitely were huge learning lessons . . . . relationships of many different kinds . . . not just the romantic/love kind. I had relationships with my country neighbours, with the small village I’d moved to . . . and the people in it . . . my own personal relationship ended (after a long time) . . .my relationship with my body . . . was centre stage . . . my relationship with the Land grew exponentially . . my relationship with Energy . . . my relationship with myself . . . . . yes siree a super big cycle of Relationship lessons.
Anyway . . .I knew it was time . . . time for those boundaries . . . in all ways. So called up the guy . . . and the fence is being done weekend after next. Now that’s significant . . . ’cause it’s not just physical . . . this is also energetic . . . .I’m creating my boundaries around me . . . . something that’s not always been easy for me . . . with my saturation of Neptune . . . . Neptune dissolves boundaries . . . . which can be useful at times, yes . . but boundaries are also very necessary. So I’ve set an intention . . . to create boundaries in my life . . . . and during this time as Saturn moves house . . . this is significant . . . . it’s a real accomplishment (more Saturn) for me . . . . I’m making sure I’m safe and secure during the next Saturn cycle . . in Scorpio.
Astrologers will often mention to look back to the last time a planet went through a specific journey . . . . Saturn last transversed Scorpio back in 1982 -84. Well I don’t have to think much to remember those years . . . they were BIG. I’d experienced a drastic change in environment . . . I’d been living in an Ashram for 10 yrs and moved out it 1981 . . . my dearest Mother was battling cancer . . . she died, so young, in 1982 . . . I experienced pregnancies (a surprise!! didn’t think it was possible), terminations, extreme trauma, relationship breakdown (whilst pregnant) . . . heaps of unresolved emotions . . . whilst hormones raged through me. My dear brother in jail (he’s not a criminal) . . . he called from the prison pleading with me to bail him out before the end of the day . . . . some prisoners had put a contract out on him . . . and they were going to kill him that night. . . . fortunately I was able to do this, it took a bit thou! Yes Scorpionic energy was everywhere . . . and Saturn’s lessons needed to be learnt . . . unfortunately, sometimes it’s the hard way.
In 1984 my beautiful boy was born . . .at the end of such a concentrated time. Such an amazing blessing he has always been . . .a very special soul . . . with a heart full of such beauty and love . . . I feel very blessed to have him in my life. Yes Saturn’s lessons were hard . . . I obviously needed to learn them . . . but the rewards were magnificent.
I have no fear (more Saturn) of this coming Scorpio cycle . . . in fact it feels magnificent . . . Saturn takes us on a ride . . . . up hills, over deserts . . . but always brings us to the most amazing oasis. . . . we need to trust this. Saturn is solid . . . Saturn is real . . . Saturn protects with his boundaries . . . Saturn builds . . . . he’s so very wise . . . he understands the meaning of Time . . . he governs cycles . . . also the cycle of Life and Death . . . he’s there when we need to leave . . . . he teaches us all about Life . . . he really is a very loyal friend.
So get to know your friend Saturn . . . no he won’t pamper your ego . . . he’s got his feet on the ground . . . and boy he knows about Life . . . and he’s the master of these lessons. So when the times get hard . . . listen more carefully . . . he’s trying to tell you something. He’ll definitely be there when you stray off the path . . . . he can be strict . . . and a wee bit authoritarian. But he knows what he’s doing . . . he’s taking you through life . . . now that’s pretty amazing . . he actually constructs the very structure of your body . . . your bones. . . . the frame on which your body operates. So if you’re experiencing Saturn symptoms look a little closer . . . what is he trying to tell you . . . you may have wandered where it’s not safe for you . . . . he’ll be the first one there . . . to let you know.
So sitting on the cusp . . . as Saturn moves into a new home . . . there’ll be lots of lessons . . . that’s for sure . . . . but listen to him . . . . he’s working for your good . . . trust him . . . and he’ll lead you to where you want to go.
Oodles of Love. . . . and bountiful Saturn travels
lotsa luv. . . . marilynxxxx
