Mr. Saturn’s Stars #2 9/18-9/24, 2017

Horoscopes for 9/18 – 9/24 2017

 Hi kids! Welcome to “Mr. Saturn’s Stars” for this week. I hope you will all enjoy your new horror-scopes….oh, I mean horoscopes……lol !!! Just a little Saturnian humor, excuse me.

Aries- Last week was about career and this week will be about relationships. Wow, you look unhappy all of a sudden. Both the Sun and the Moon will be crossing from Virgo into Libra and entering your House of Partnerships. The Moon will do it early in the week and the Sun over the weekend, which means you’ll worry about what’s going on way more than you should and then have to deal with it anyway. A Jupiter-Uranus opposition will bring up the same old story of your independence and control issues and Mr. Saturn will be there in your House of Philosophy to make sure you realize the problem is you and not anyone else!

Taurus- Cows are generally nice creatures until they’re not! Ever see one in the middle of the road causing a traffic jam? Uranus will be causing you some deep down anxiety once Venus enters Virgo and you realize that you’re going to have to stop sitting there and actually do something if you’d like to maintain your comfort zone. Mr. Saturn’s comment about the situation would be, “Have you really been that comfortable anyway?” Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Creativity are planning a protest for change and you might want to listen to their talking points, “2, 4, 6, 8, we don’t have the time to wait!” In other words, do what you have to do to improve your current situation or find another one…and soon! “

Gemini- Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your Home and Family area are in aspect to Pluto in your House of shared resources, indicating your situation with a partner might be facing some immediate changes. That could mean establishing some new routines, transforming your roles, or the two of you moving on separately. The arc of the Moon this week through Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio would say you’ve already tried pretty hard to fix the situation, so maybe it’s just time to go? If you’re convinced that some future event you’ve been looking forward to must transpire before any change is possible, Mr. Saturn would simply respond, “How much is your quality of life suffering in the meantime?

Cancer- With Mr. Saturn in your House of Health challenging Neptune in your House of Philosophy maybe it’s time to realize that all your worrying and stress is slapping you around but good! Must you always feel it’s your fault when someone close to you makes a mistake? Stop using your loved ones as an excuse not to deal with the roots of your own fears and anxieties. With Uranus in your Public Sector there is a lot going on now beyond your control. Deal with what you can and let the rest go for the time being. Jupiter in your House of Home and Family is currently protecting you, but the question Mr. Saturn is writing on the wall is, “Do you think you deserve it?”

Leo- Mr. Saturn sometimes likes to role-play and his character this week is going to be your boss at work. What costume will you put on for this game….a revolutionary, a slave, or a free person? With a stellium of Planets currently in your House of Self Worth conspiring with Pluto in the House of Work, it’s time to reconsider how hard you should have to try in order to be appreciated. The Moon in Libra mid-week will contact benevolent Jupiter and hopefully those two can convince you to value yourself regardless of what anyone else does. When the Moon enters Scorpio over the weekend you’ll hear from Mr. Saturn when he asks, “Hey there Mr. King of the Jungle, Are you just going to complain about the situation or are you going to do something about it?

Virgo- With 5 major planets in your sign at the beginning of the week you’re really feeling your oats, but what’s your focus? Have you ever heard the expression “giving your power away?” Stop looking at the pursuit of your dreams like a lottery where the percentages are always against you. Uranus opposing Jupiter in your House of Self Worth may be making it seem like what you want is out of your control, but as Mr. Saturn always likes to sing to himself when the going gets tough, “The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all!”

Libra- In Zen the Mind is referred to as “The Chattering Monkey”. With 5 planets currently in your House of The Inner Self that Monkey is literally screaming it’s head off trying to orchestrate all your inner thoughts into some kind of coherent strategy. The New Moon in Virgo mid-week will offer an outlet for all this mental activity as it squares Mr. Saturn in your House of Writing. Maybe all these new thoughts you’re having require a new you as well? Here’s a haiku Mr. Saturn has written with that new you in mind;

The most difficult

Place on earth to escape from

Is the jail of “I”

Scorpio- Your life may seem to be in order (or at least under control within your comfort zone) but what do you want? You realize things could be better and you are quite capable at whatever you try to do, nevertheless you are hesitant to break out creatively and take a risk on yourself. When will you finally get sick of working for people who should be working for you? The arc of the Moon this week will pass through your House of Dreams and House of Confinement before it crosses over the horizon and enters Scorpio. Mr. Saturn, the famous critic, feels that the Moon’s path in your chart is symbolic of the proverbial Phoenix rising from the ashes. What do you think?

Sagittarius- Early in the week a New Moon along with 3 other major planets will be in your House of Public Image, all of them generally opposing Neptune in the House of Home and Family. This will occur on the Virgo-Pisces axis, which is the line in the Zodiac between the real and imagined. Whatever you think you want from life at this time, just make sure you’re not doing it just to satisfy (or rebel against) what others may expect of you. As the Moon enters Scorpio over the weekend you’ll probably want to either pull away or lash out, just don’t expect that bottle you’re nipping at behind Mr. Saturn’s back to provide you with any real escape.

Capricorn- Jupiter in your public sector and Mr. Saturn behind the scenes are causing difficulties in making up your mind about some recent choices. This has been a time of great change and with the current influx of planets into Virgo you are probably unfairly criticizing everything in your life before anything has a chance to really unfold. The best thing you can probably do now is to utilize a Moon-Neptune aspect over the coming weekend and take the time to nurture yourself. Consider visiting a spa or taking a Spiritual Retreat. Even Mr. Saturn likes to hear a friendly “Namaste” from time to time.

Aquarius- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Be careful what you wish for.” As a fixed air sign you are more vulnerable to illusion than most, simply because air is meant to move and fixing it in a vacuum is an artificial contrivance no matter how perfect the notion of a vacuum may seem. You are looking for control over your daily environment but at what cost? The New Moon in Virgo at the beginning of the week will drive your insecurities, so by the time a Scorpio Moon and Neptune meet over the weekend you will have justified to yourself whatever you feel is necessary to accomplish your “Manifest Destiny”. By month’s end when Mercury enters Libra we’ll see if your calculations have been correct.

Pisces- With Neptune in your sign the fog has descended all around, so make sure that what you think you see in the distance is what it appears to be. Money is an issue at this time as Jupiter and Uranus challenge you to choose between responsibility and luxury when juggling your expenses. Venus entering Virgo could reveal a dangerous naiveté regarding the resources you are assuming you have. A new love interest may actually be more calculating than you are, but in all this fog Mr. Saturn just thinks it’s a case of “dumb and dumber” with both of you blinded by your own selfishness. Be careful nonetheless.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #1

 Welcome to the weekly Horoscope column here at “the13thpath.com” known as “Mr. Saturn’s Stars.”

Introduction

You’re probably wondering why I would choose the name “Mr. Saturn’s Stars” for a column where people are supposedly looking for good news, or at the very least some hope. After all, isn’t Saturn one of the malefics in Astrology (the other being Mars) and aren’t those guys about anything but hope and good news? If that’s what you believe then before we can get to discussing horoscopes you need to first be introduced to the REAL Mr. Saturn, not the dark, negative image promoted by all those “fluffy bunny” types out there who will “Namaste” you into a coma if they get half a chance. The Mr. Saturn you need to meet is the guy that will tell you the truth, even if that’s the last thing your fragile, stressed out, and control driven ego wants to hear. Now why would Mr. Saturn be so willing to share the truth with you? Because he Loves you…..well, maybe not you personally, but he knows that in order for everything to truly be in harmony for all of us (and yes, that means you too!) everyone has to be responsible for holding up their end of the bargain. So if Mr. Saturn is willing to risk you not liking him as he teaches you the lesson of responsibility (which is actually the lesson of Love) then you can bet he probably cares more about you than just about anyone except your Mother.

Mr. Saturn is also a teacher, though don’t expect him to be politically correct and give you an award just for showing up. If you can’t handle criticism I would say stay away from Mr. Saturn, but that would be impossible. He will follow you like a Repo Man who Loves his job and sooner or later you will pay…and you will be better for it, maybe not right away, but soon, like the next time you have to respect yourself regardless if anyone else does. You see Mr. Saturn will deal with you even when you won’t deal with yourself. He will require that you learn how to sit in the vacuum of your self and breathe, even if you’re convinced you will either suffocate or die of loneliness in that wretched place. The French Poet Arthur Rimbaud once wrote, “A battle for the soul is as brutal as a battle of men…” well, the good news is, if you can handle the lessons assigned to you by Mr. Saturn then you will have received the requisite training to attain victory on that inevitable battlefield.

Mr. Saturn may be the least glamorous and the least touchy, feely of all the major planets, but he’s the most powerful because when he comes around he will change the other planets in your chart more than they can resist him (except for maybe Pluto). He will make Mercury sit still, turn Venus into an honest woman, calm Mars the f**k down, deflate Jupiter’s pompousness, convince Uranus to accept direction, and make Neptune more practical. He treats everyone here on Earth the same and he makes the Moon less sentimental. Furthermore he only changes his outfit every two years or so, which means he’s no trendy fashion victim and he knows what real value is. All in all it could be said that Mr. Saturn is truly an “Archetype for All Seasons”.

So you see? Mr. Saturn does Love you in his own unique way. Granted it is tough Love, but it’s unconditional. In fact, the only reason he gets up in the morning is because Mr. Saturn wants to make damn sure you learn to Love yourself as much as he feels duty bound to help you do it.

Sincerely, T.C. Eisele

 

Horoscopes for the week of 9/11/2017 – 9/17/2017

 Aries- Rams like to charge headlong into things and with Uranus currently in your sign this is especially true, however, Mr. Saturn can be a Uranus-whisperer if need be and with a little assistance from his buddy Jupiter he might just be able to steer you in the direction of caution. If you’re amenable to that then you’ll be able to channel the energy of the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Virgo, along with Pluto in Capricorn, to transform your usually impatient energy into a practical (and profitable) attention to details. After such an efficient workweek you’ll definitely be ready to forget your worries, so go on, party with that exuberant Leo Moon over the weekend.

Taurus- Sensual Taureans love their creature comforts, although at the beginning of the week you may discover that a little juggling of resources may be necessary. Act responsibly at this time and you will live to play another day. Mr. Saturn would routinely advise, “waste not, want not,” but this week he might also add, “try to save something for a rainy day.” This could also be a time for some of you Bulls to take your health a little more seriously and start an exercise or diet program…after all, do you really need to over indulge or are you just trying to distract yourself from something you’d rather not think about?

Gemini- You are an intellectual sign and would like others to think you know everything, but this may be a time when your feelings of inferiority just can’t be rationalized away no matter how artful and clever your mind may be at inventing excuses. Neptune transiting your House of Public Image has been allowing you to hide behind a mask, but with Mercury, Mars, and The Sun all at the bottom of the chart now you should be seeking help rather than trying to hide behind pride and false bravado. True pride would make you want to face your shortcomings instead of trying to convince others(or worse, yourself) that everything is just fine.

Cancer- You feel an undeniable need to break out of the rut you’re in, but what to do? Is a situation thwarting you or are you just trapped in an image of yourself that’s no longer who you really are? How you think of yourself at this time is key. The compromises that you always seem to feel you have to make may be exacting a higher toll on your self-esteem (and health) than you realize. Stop looking into the mirror of other people’s approval to see who you are. You can really have a break through now if you are determined to stop feeling guilty about what you want, and need!

Leo- You are the sign of leadership but keep in mind, a leader can sometimes become enslaved by those who depend excessively on him or her. Maybe those who are draining your energy could learn to do for themselves if you weren’t around all the time to provide them an inexhaustible supply of support and acceptance? Mr. Saturn would say it’s time to put your self first instead of worrying about someone whose current lessons may be about taking care of his or her own shit. Unless of course you don’t think you deserve to be a little more selfish? Think about that.

Virgo- With the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in your sign opposing Neptune in the House of Partnerships it’s time to re-evaluate the dynamics in your relationship. During the week as the Moon progresses on its route through Gemini and Cancer you might need to be more flexible and think about what would be best for both of you as new career choices loom on the horizon. Or are you feeling stuck because you know that what you need to do might end up providing some serious challenges for your partner to deal with? This is not a time for selfishness or suffering in silence, but rather for communication. Of course that would require you to admit your fears instead of projecting them onto someone else.

Libra- This is a time to put yourself out there and make a push to get to the next level in your career. Difficult interactions with others may be showing you that your time in a certain situation has come to an end. During mid-week with the Moon in Cancer and the Sun, Mercury, and Mars working behind the scenes you could get a helping hand from someone you assisted in the past, which could result in a refreshing new direction. Assume you deserve this break and just continue being the dependable professional you are.

Scorpio- You have been less than thrilled with your work situation for a while now, which currently begs a pair of questions, “What do you want?” and “What are you willing to do for it?” Mr. Saturn might also add, “What do you think you deserve?” As the week ends with a Leo Moon transiting your House of Career and activating both Saturn and Uranus, you could realize that help has always been available to assist you in moving toward your longtime dream, it’s just been a matter of your needing to ask for it. So what are you waiting for?

Sagittarius- With Saturn in your sign you are not going to avoid having to eventually answer for your laziness in terms of career, especially this week with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all opposing Neptune in your House of Foundations. Being sociable is not a substitute for hard work no matter who seems to be laughing and partying along with you. At the beginning of the week a tendency to want to escape through a relationship may seem like a good idea, but make sure you’re listening when Mr. Saturn whispers in your ear, “What does this person REALLY want?” Nuff said!!!

Capricorn- Pluto has been in your sign for a while, so I’m sure the whole notion of letting go has become a theme you’re already quite familiar with. In mid week as the Moon transits your House of Partnerships you may start to realize you need to let go of that long distance, cyber-substitute for a relationship you’ve been dawdling with. After all, isn’t it just an excuse for being afraid to have a real relationship in real time with an actual person? What are you scared of? “Mr. Saturn asks, adding “I guess that’s the 64,000 dollar question.”

Aquarius- As the Moon enters Gemini to begin the week you will be overflowing with all sorts of ideas for creative projects and by the time the Moon enters Leo over the weekend you will have already told everyone you know about your inspirations. You talk a great game but where is the discipline, organization, and persistence necessary to manifest these ideas? With Pluto camped out in the House of Your Secret Self and Mars and Mercury transiting your House of Death and Transformation, Mr. Saturn can’t help but make the cryptic comment,

“The Sun was born from

The collapsing of a Star

And now it’s your turn”

Pisces- What constitutes an illusion is that at the time we totally fail to recognize it as such. Of course Mr. Saturn will always be there for you to point out such ironies, however, with Neptune currently transiting through your sign my Pisces friend, you will no doubt be deaf to his counsel. Jupiter and Uranus are inspiring you to recreate your life on several levels and their motivation will lead you to go wherever it is you feel you need to go, whether that results in a success or simply a lesson learned. Nevertheless, Mr. Saturn has composed this haiku in your honor;

“Be careful what you

Think you want, it can only

Be just what it is”

Mission Statement

Welcome to the blog for the13thpath.com. I know your time is valuable and I sincerely appreciate that you’re willing to spend some of it here.

During the coming weeks and months I will be using this forum to share information on a wide range of topics related to Occultism, Metaphysics, Parapsychology, and Cutting Edge Science. With each new entry I hope to both inform and challenge readers by approaching each subject with a mix of technical knowledge, experienced commentary, healthy skepticism, and historical perspective.

In addition to the material mentioned above, another feature of “the13thpath.com” blog will be a pair of ongoing reports. The first is titled, “Phenomena,” and will chronicle my first hand encounters (and subsequent research) into weird or unusual circumstances that challenge the boundaries of what we normally think of as the real world. The second report will be called, “Mr. Saturn’s Stars,” and will contain weekly Horoscopes written from a decidedly Saturnian perspective as a trouble-shooting guide pointing out what each sign may want to work on in the coming week.

The 20th Century Mystic, Philosopher, and Mathematician J.G. Bennett once wrote, “Existence is all that can be known, but it is not all that is real.” I hope you will be a frequent visitor here at “the13thpath.com” to join me as I walk off that proverbial cliff into the unknown like The Fool of The Tarot in search of enlightenment and what’s real.
