We’re on the brink of a huge change right now in the world. Astrologically this is indicated by the upcoming Saturn transit into Libra. Since September 2009, when Saturn entered Virgo, we have been analyzing, worrying over and trying to reorganize the “post-Empire” world. (after the transit of Saturn and Ketu through Leo – the sign of government and power).
This has been a time where the chinks in the armor have been revealed in an unprecedented way. Our reliance on unsustainable (and even dangerous) resources has been shown by two unprecedented man-made disasters. In 2010 there was a seemingly unending geyser of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. In 2011 – after a massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan – the worst nuclear disaster ever occurred (and is still not resolved).
These natural atrocities alerted us to the unsustainability and overreliance of humanity on dangerous and limited resources. Such crises have distracted us from systemic problems such as global warming, ecosystem destruction due to predatory agribusiness, and many other issues that need to be addressed.
In a similar vein, unsustainable financial systems and unethical practices, the concentration of power in the hands of the few, have been revealed. These financial and political inequities have led to things such as ”the Arab Spring”, “the Tea Party Movement” and most recently the “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
Saturn in Leo and Virgo
Saturn is the planet of control, stress, commitment and forbearance. There can be extreme rigidity with Saturn, due to a fear of losing control. Yet, facing harsh realities is the greatness of Saturn. In Leo, we faced the harsh realities of unsustainable power figures, both in government and the financial sector, with economic crises and “Western Empire” disgraced. In Earth sign Virgo, we have been shown the need to find cleaner, greener, more practical systems and fuel sources, and the greater need to live within our means. Also, there has been a more curious and flexible approach to problem solving, as we seek to even out the “haves and have-nots”.
