Saturn transits can bring shocking events that seem to come out of nowhere; however, it’s because you ignore your inner voice or dreams that these events shock you.

 Of course, you have no control over the death of people, wars and otherworldly events, but more often than not, for instance, if someone is lying to us, we can get a gut feeling.

But we ignore these feelings, and then when that person’s deceptive actions come to light by external events. We act shocked; ok, we don’t always get the heads up.

But if you’re anything like the average human and me, we all been guilty of ignoring the writing on the wall, which is also the name of a destinies child album.

Some things are karma, but if you get advice on what your karma is, an astrology reading can help with this, then you know how to be on alert for karmic events, so you can avoid them.

 Although you cannot always do this as the only way through some times is through, you can handle them more appropriately or in a timelier manner.

At times you can be out of touch with what you really want; all humans are guilty of it; we get caught up in paying bills, and yes, these must be paid.

But Saturn transits are trying to take you to where you really want to go; most of us get into a job and say we only going to do it for 2-5 years while we save so we can go back to university/ college, or get some other further education.

But then we get stuck in a routine, we get used to what was only meant to be temporary, then spend most of our lives complaining about it.

Saturn tries to shock us by external events to get us to go within to look at our real desires and hopes for our lives.

Saturn has a bad reputation in astrology as the lord of boundaries, but it is actually the great manifestor, of what you really want if you allow.

You may think you wanted that car you lost, but maybe it was what you really needed, you may think of thought you wanted that love, but perhaps they were not the best for you; what if connecting with them stop you from meeting your one.

 And often this happens anyway as we typically shut down after heartbreak; I know it’s hard, as we have been programmed to cling and wallow, which we should do for some time, but not for our entire lives.

We must grieve what is lost, but we should never long for what doesn’t want us, as we miss what will cherish us.

When we do this, we cut ourselves off from the richness of life represented in spring and summer; yes, autumn and winter destroy, but spring rejuvenates, and so can the transit of Saturn if we allow.

Whatever Saturn takes away in transit, let it go; if it comes back, then it’s meant to be yours; I know this is hard; I been there, clinging, as well, as hey we programmed to do that.

All in all, Saturn transiting through the house needs you to pay attention to the matters of that house if you’re in alignment with your highest potential.

Then Saturn will add more organisation and order; if you are not, expect great changes that will align with your real ambitions.

You may have forgotten, which may bring you upset and despair as we humans can get lost in daily routine, forgetting our real wants and ambitions, as I said before.

Don’t resist and persist, flow let whatever wants to leave go, and let what’s yours flow, into your life, in time.

Self-awareness, getting real with yourself, and the skills and mindset it takes to achieve your highest ambitions.

Saturn transit only shock, because if you’re anything like the average human,  you put up so many barriers to your own happiness. 

The biggest one is convincing yourself you want, what you really want, or getting sucked into other people’s expectations and plans for your life.

If you are genuine with yourself, the Saturn transit is authentic with you.

A poem

Saturns lessons are so deep and vast

Egging us on to release the past

Yes, even if old friends are still a blast

Sometimes, the good things

Turn into bad

There is no reason

Its just life

Progress is the name of the game

Although letting go of our old loves

Live us lame, in bed in pain, guilt-ridden

Until our sin becomes our shame

And then all we see is rain

Because we fail to understand the lesson

That life blessings can become our living hells

And our living hells our blessings

The dualities of life

We are given life

Only to lose it in death

The trick is to see

We never really lose

We always gain

When we understand the restriction of time

Is an illusion, for all is just part of the everlasting cycle

Growth is the order of the universe.
