“Crossing roads, bridges and borders are very important transitions in dreams. The dreamer is passing from the known to the unknown. The crossroads is the place where time and timeless meet. Time is static, timeless is creative.” Marion Woodman
In the more recent history of Astrology the discovery of the asteroids has to do with the re-emergence of the feminine – in both men and women as well as in society. The feminine encourages a holistic orientation (integrating and honoring the levels of body, mind and spirit) as opposed to the prevalent linear and compartmentalized orientation we see all around us.
As this week draws to a close there are two very important aspects at play – Saturn squares Neptune exactly and Pluto conjuncts the North Node exactly. If over time in your attempts to live a more soulful or soul directed life you have encountered experiences which are part of a pattern of limitation or frustration, there is an opportunity now to get to the core of the beliefs that are generating those kinds of experiences. These limiting beliefs or thought patterns can come down through the bloodlines or can be adopted through the teachings of the family, religion, culture etc. Many of the limitations can come from ideas about “how things have to be” and rule out the soul’s yearnings. Take a good look at what you are ruling out as possibilities and why. Explore options and allow yourself to be in new territory. Be open in your thinking about the road ahead.
The Saturn Neptune alignment provides an excellent time to consider how you integrate your higher aspirations or dreams into your mundane life. If there is a tendency to get discouraged or overwhelmed too early in the process the forces of Saturn may need to be adjusted. If there is a tendency to spend too much time in the dream world the influence of Neptune may need to be brought into a better balance.
Crossroads offer an opportunity for expansion and growth. Look to your chart to see what areas of life these planetary alignments are operating or call and schedule a brief reading about how and where it is manifesting in your life.
“Jung said what is not made conscious comes to us as Fate.” Marion Woodman

“Under the Saturn/ Neptune influence we can feel that our existing life structures don’t measure up to our ideal. We must realize that this moment is IT – this life is our vessel of the spirit. Saturn Neptune tells me, manifest your vision now. Master your disappointment. Build and sustain the temple of your life. Don’t fall apart or waste away or become dysfunctional.” Greg Bogart, The Mt Astrologer.
This week the influence of the Saturn/ Neptune/ Jupiter configuration is strong. The Sun and Venus will move up to a square to Neptune mid week. These aspects bode well for creativity and spiritual development but can also distort pragmatic vision. There is a tendency to see what you would like to see rather than what is really there. The tendency towards fantasy and projection is strong at this time.
The Sun and Venus will then move up to an opposition to Saturn – the Lord of Time, Consequences and Karma and a square to Jupiter – the planet of expansion. When Saturn’s influence is strong there is a lesson to be learned and it may well be about how realistic and strong the foundations of you plans are. If you feel slowed down or discouraged by this influence do check to see if there is a pattern to the way you approach things that may need to be adjusted. Much of this time has to do with keeping your visions inspired while overcoming obstacles related to Saturn’s lessons of discipline, patience and the “rules of the road.”
We are heading into Saturday’s New Moon in Gemini – a seed point for setting new intentions. The month of June is particularly strong for new beginnings as it starts out under the influence of a waning Moon. It bodes well the think about what you are planning to leave behind in starting a new time in your life. And in Gemini this particularly has to do with leaving behind outlived thought and communication patterns in order to be in touch with something that is more evolved, vibrant and authentic.
“Saturn is approaching the square to Neptune, destabilizing our old certainties. As old forms weaken, new visions rise to take their place.
