Saturn . . . setting boundaries

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
