Saturn, the Nodes and the Future

“every beginning is only a sequel
after all, and the book of events
is always open halfway through.” Wislawa Szymborska

“When I pronounce the word Future, the first syllable already belongs to the past.” Wislawa Szymborska

Saturn, sometimes referred to as Father Time, is active in the sky this week. In the last few weeks we have seen Mars and Venus¬† in Aquarius move up to square the Lunar Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio. Traditionally¬† the Nodes are said to govern destiny and fate. In contemporary times we could describe them as significant crossroads or turning points when it’s wise to take the decision making process more seriously.

This week as Saturn aligns with the Nodes, it’s wise to take extra care with choices or decisions concerning personal evolution. Saturn is sometimes referred to as the Grim Reaper and with this influence it bodes well to consider what needs to be cut back or left behind in order to create better outcomes. It’s wise to factor in your higher aspirations for your life.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A white dove flying straight and fearlessly over troubled waters.”
