Choices have consequences…
Your Life Your Choices by F.Harte
As I note my thoughts in this writing, the planet, Saturn ♄, in the sign of Aquarius ♒, is square the moon’s nodes, north node in Taurus ♉and south node in Scorpio ♏. More on the lunar nodes below.
Saturn is sometimes referred to as the Taskmaster and Father Time. This is because Saturn wants what is best for us: Saturn wants us to develop, mature and live up to our potential. Some descriptives of Saturn’s influence are: responsibility, discipline, hardworking, ambition, structure, obligation, authority and duty.
Saturn is not only the stern, taskmaster but if we live up to our obligations, Saturn rewards us. For instance, during the height of the COVID global pandemic, many people lost their jobs including two brothers. One brother had been very careful with his money during his employment and saved for a rainy day. The other brother was carefree with his money and so when he lost his job, he had no money to fall back on but his brother did who was kind enough to help him a bit during his time of need.
Had it not been for the longview of one of the brothers, Saturn’s harsh consequences could have been felt by both. When you’re up, it is easier to call people your friends but when you’re down, it seems as the saying goes, “no one has a quarter to spare”.
Saturn says, “live up to your responsibilities and you will be okay, your hard work and due diligence will pay off.” Sometimes, Saturn’s rewards do not materialize until after many years of hard work and dedication.
In Astrology, the lunar nodes of the Moon are divided into two: the North Node and the South Node. Together they tell what we are here to work on in this lifetime. Simply put, the south node indicates what we are familiar and comfortable with and the north node informs us of what we are here to learn. Every year and a half, the lunar nodes change signs. People born within your same lunar node group are like your “soul tribe.” You were incarnated with them to learn the same lessons.
Moving It Forward
Some Astrologers consider the moon’s nodes to be the most significant points in the natal chart; that is just how important they are. The sign and house placement further define what areas of life the person is specifically here to work on in this incarnation.
Currently transiting Saturn in the sign of Aquarius is making a square, challenging, aspect to the moon’s nodes: as mentioned, the north node in the sign of Taurus and the south node in the sign of Scorpio. This aspect began in the latter part of March and continues for the whole of April and in to May. The challenging square, 90-degree, aspect is a call to action.
This is the ideal time to do a self assessment of where you are, how you got there and what your plans are for the future. This is a time to be Saturnine in your self assessment, no rose-colored glasses but just the cold, hard facts.
We all make choices in life. This is why I think our earthly experience is in the 3-D (three dimensional) reality of opposites. The world is filled with opposites. We have all heard the saying, “there are two sides of the same coin” meaning there are different ways of looking at the same situation.
When we approach the many facets of life, even on a daily basis, we make choices. Saturn says okay you made certain choices and there will be certain consequences, “good” or “bad”. The choices we make shape our lives.
Now, no matter how you see your life and your choices, “good” or “bad”, it’s all about growing and developing. We are all here in earth’s school learning our lessons and hopefully, doing our homework.
