Mr. Saturn’s Stars #7 Horoscopes for 10/23-10/29, 2017

Hi kids!!! Welcome once again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. We are now officially in the Witching Season as the Sun enters Scorpio, so rake those leaves, carve those pumpkins, and remember, the trick is to treat your self.

“One can’t learn much and also be comfortable. One can’t learn much and let anybody else be comfortable.”   -Charles Fort

 

Aries- The week begins with the Sun entering Scorpio to join Jupiter, while Mars arrives in Libra to join Venus. As a result, your passions will probably be smoldering for a certain someone like the charcoal in a BBQ pit. In the meantime, Mr. Saturn will be hovering like Harvey Weinstein over the Moon in Sagittarius, so be careful you don’t do something with this special person just because you can. Mercury in Scorpio and Pluto in your House of Career will be advising you to check and make sure if Mr. or Ms. Sexy is really available, or, if you met this person through business these planets might serenade you with a chorus of “Don’t (blah)where you eat;” either way I suggest you listen. Mercury will also be in aspect to Neptune in your House of What’s Hidden, making it easy for you to believe no one is noticing how your libido is up. Stop kidding yourself. Everybody notices, but so what? Just be careful.

Taurus- Your attitude toward life is changing, are you willing to change as well? Anger about betrayals and disappointments from the past has been sabotaging you and you’re beginning to realize this every time you look in the mirror. You have unwittingly let the dark memories you have of certain people turn into darkness for yourself. With Venus and Mars in your House of Health and Routines it’s time for you to get off the couch and rediscover the youth you have left. With a little effort you can regain the enthusiasm and creativity that once made you so magnetic. With Uranus in your House of Confinement working with Mr. Saturn in your House of Legacies, you need to find a creative outlet! When the Moon crosses your Mid-heaven over the weekend be sure you make time for something you once loved to do. It doesn’t matter where this activity may lead, it only matters that you are allowing yourself to have fun again. Even Mr. Saturn is willing to sing along!

Gemini- Every relationship we enter into goes through stages. What makes an old friend or a long time partner so important is that our connections with them become the living proof that love can survive. With Venus and Mars in your House of Romance squaring Pluto, you’re finding yourself struggling with believing that love has already found you and it’s not going anywhere. On the work front you need to stop letting someone else’s agenda cramp your style. You have the ideas, the energy, but most of all the respect of those in control. If a younger person is causing you any difficulties don’t buy into their attempts at emotional manipulation; keep your cool!

Cancer- The way you relate to others has been changing for a while, but it’s only just now that you’re fully realizing it. Rather than continuing to take responsibility for other people’s emotions, you’re instead doing what you can and then letting it go. At first you felt guilty about this, but now you understand what Mr. Saturn has been trying to tell you all along, namely that “doing something for someone else they should be doing for themselves ultimately denies them a better lesson.” Amen. Now that you realize you have all this newly freed up emotional disc space, you’re also discovering you have a lot more creative energy. So what are you waiting for? Start investing more time in your heart’s desire and see what the Universe rewards you with! This week’s Haiku is for you.

“If I seek knowledge

Perhaps it’s there, if it finds

Me the truth is here”

Leo- With Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Foundations angling Pluto, as well as Venus and Mars in your House of Communication squaring Pluto, the boundaries you have established between yourself and others will seem more apparent now than ever before. There is a wall up, but it’s not because you’re insensitive, in fact, it’s just the opposite, as you are far more sensitive than most people realize. Of course this makes you a favorite with kids and dogs, so why don’t you try to open up a little and perhaps volunteer at a youth center or an animal shelter? Unlike Jack Nicholson in “As Good As It Gets,” you won’t need any bacon in your pocket to be the one that everyone wants to go home with. Even Mr. Saturn is saying, Awwww…<3

Virgo- As Venus and Mars transit your House of Earned Income and square Pluto in your House of Fun and Creativity, you might be feeling the need to break out for a little enjoyment and howl at the moon. Of course the frugal part of you will automatically come up with reasons not to, but look at it this way, money is for spending and with Venus and Mars where they are you’re earning more than you need, so why not splurge? The Sun and Jupiter working with Neptune in your House of Relationships may also have you feeling more amorous than usual, so why not take that special someone along with you to go out and howl at the moon? Mr. Saturn say’s, “Aaaah Oooooh, Werewolves of London, Aaaaah Ooooooh!”

Libra- Pluto at the bottom of your chart is squaring both Venus and Mars in your sign as well as nudging Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth, which all together should have you thoroughly stoked up to show the world exactly what you got. Saturn in the House of Communication and Uranus in your partnership area would indicate an opportunity based on someone reaching out to you unexpectedly, or perhaps you’ll receive a response to a shot in the dark you took a while ago and just forgot about? The arc of the Moon during the week will have you ready to take some specific steps toward transforming your current circumstances and opening up some new creative and professional possibilities. With a cool and confident air, Mr. Saturn would simply say, “If not now, when? If not here, where?”

Scorpio- With Mercury in your sign aligning with both Pluto in the House of Communication and Neptune in the House of Creativity, you are on the verge of a true awakening. Mr. Saturn and Uranus are further supporting this epiphany as they act respectively in your chart like the driver and the sphinxes in the Chariot Card of the Tarot, causing you to come to the revolutionary realization that luck is who you are, not what you do. This is nothing short of a true moment of enlightenment as Venus and Mars dance in celebration together like Yin and Yang in your House of Hidden Secrets and Mystical Union. Enjoy this while it lasts, for sooner or later Mr. Saturn will turn on the lights and start singing, “Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.”

Sagittarius- You’re feeling it, so why aren’t you doing it? Jupiter and Mercury in your House of the Subconscious and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have become an itch you must scratch. Add to that Neptune in your House of Foundations and you’ll discover that you have stumbled upon one of those rare moments in life when you can see into the workings of your mind and clearly realize that guilt is a useless emotion, so why bother? Venus and Mars together in your House of Dreams are opposing Uranus in your creative sphere, egging you on like the Prince song “Let’s Go Crazy” at maximum volume. At a moment like this Mr. Saturn would usually tell you to turn it down, but instead he’s saying, “Forget that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know, Dr. Everything’ll be Alright”…. “It’s up to you to make it alright so what are you waiting for!”

Capricorn- Most of the major planets are in the public half of your chart so it’s important for you to be out there and interacting with others. Venus and Mars in your House of Career will provide the eloquence and Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Groups will provide the substance, so share your interest and excitement involving the things that matter to you. What’s hidden in the private half of your chart this week will be the Moon, Neptune, and Uranus, so try not to be derailed by your anxieties, instead use them as examples to help you connect with those who can benefit from your honesty and compassion. Mr. Saturn say’s, “don’t be a rump, offer those condolences and give something of yourself.”

Aquarius- With Saturn and the Moon in your House of Groups aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication early in the week, you could find yourself having to deliver a lecture or perform in front of an audience. If that’s the case, stick to the script and save your proselytizing for another time. Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune, plus Pluto behind the scenes with the Moon mid-week, could cause you to make a Freudian slip you might need a stuntman for, so be careful. As a word of advice, Mr. Saturn would like to quote from one of his favorite TV shows, “Just the facts, Ma’am, just the facts.”

Pisces- If you are on the verge of making an important decision it would be good to seek some advice this week, just be sure you’re prepared to listen and seriously consider what a more experienced person has to say, even if it disagrees with what you have convinced yourself of. Especially since Saturn in your House of Career working with Uranus in Aries has you struggling with nailing down a definite plan right now. In addition, Jupiter and Mercury together in Scorpio aligning with Pluto probably has you believing that you know everything, though if that’s the case then you can’t possibly learn anything else without it resulting in you being up the creek without a paddle. Of course Mr. Saturn is willing to let you find out the hard way, and as the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #6 Horoscopes for 10/16-10/22, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/16-10/22, 2017

 Hi Kids!!! Welcome to the newest edition of Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

“Doubt is a good servant but a bad master; a perfect mistress, but a nagging wife.”       -Aleister Crowley

“Always look on the bright side of Life.”   -Monty Python

Aries- This could be a week of revelations for you, beginning with the Moon conjunct Venus in your House of Relationships making you feel surprisingly less attached to your general dislike of humanity. You’d prefer to chalk this up to a good mood, but when the Moon conjuncts Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio and then they all trine Neptune in your House of Mysticism, cue the Twilight Zone theme and prepare for a Fortean rain of frogs as something quite powerful emerges from the depths of your psyche and you feel more vulnerable than ever before, kind of like Dorothy being scolded by the great and munificent Oz. Of course when Toto pulls back the curtain it’ll just be good ol’ Mr. Saturn ready to explain a new perspective on life from your House of Philosophy.

Taurus- You can speculate as much as you want about a situation you need to take care of this week, just don’t be blind to what’s actually going on in front of you because you might regret it later. The Moon and Venus in Libra to start the week will have you looking through rose tinted glasses, yet when the New Moon in Libra opposite Uranus occurs shortly thereafter try to stay calm if your well laid plans seem to be unraveling. With a stellium of planets in Scorpio in your House of Relationships and Neptune in your House of Groups, you could negotiate what seems to be a reasonable solution to your problem; just make sure it won’t be a slippery slope for you later. By way of advice Mr. Saturn would like to quote some wise words by by the late Malcolm X, namely, “Make it plain.”

Gemini- Venus and the Moon beginning the week in your House of Romance may have you feeling quite amorous, but for the time being all your energy is going to be needed for work. A new direction is being implemented on the job (perhaps a power play by one of your bosses) and you may be the person who will be made responsible for making it happen. A New Moon in your House of Creativity say’s you’ll work out the logistics and manage not to have too many people annoyed with you in the process. The last vestiges of a Mars/Saturn square in your House of Home and House of Relationships may find you bringing your frustrations home after having to be the ambassador of good vibes at work. Mr. Saturn say’s, “just shut up and let your partner pour the wine and tell you about their day.”

Cancer- With Venus and the Moon in Libra at the beginning of the week, you may be called upon either at work or by your family to be a peacemaker between opposing factions, neither of which you particularly agree with. Of course this will seem ridiculous and maybe even annoy you, but with Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Creativity in trine to Neptune, you do have the skills and you’re the nicest one of the bunch, so try to look at this diplomatic assignment as a compliment of sorts. The New Moon opposite Uranus along with Saturn in your House of Maintenance and Repair should help you get through this dilemma with flying colors and possibly even move your own status up a notch to boot! Mr. Saturn has got his eye on you and he’s liking what he see’s.

Leo- Mr. Saturn in your House of Creativity is a stabilizing influence now for a lot of new ideas that are finally emerging inside of you. With a New Moon in your House of Communication, you will no doubt be out there feeling optimistic and throwing around some of that Leo charm. Jupiter transiting through your House of Foundations along with Mercury and the Moon over the weekend will have you thinking a lot about home and family, and with Neptune in your house of Legacies you might start rethinking some long standing beliefs you’ve had about your upbringing. We don’t get to choose our family, but we do get to choose who we want to be. You’ve been righteous about this point for a long time, but have you realized that no one ever really stopped you from doing what you want?

Virgo- With Mars in your sign and Mr. Saturn in your House of Foundations, lately you’ve been feeling like you’re driving a car with the brake on. A New Moon in your House of Self Worth in the middle of the week should help you to finally decide something needs to change, especially now that Jupiter has entered Scorpio and its transit through your House of communications will make it very difficult for you to sit still and stay quiet for much longer if something is really bothering you. With Mercury and the Moon also in Scorpio late in the week and over the weekend, make sure you consider your words carefully before speaking, it would be much more constructive to intelligently express your frustrations instead of just venting.

Libra- Mars in Virgo transiting behind the scenes in your chart has been causing you a lot of frustration. You’re working really hard and sincerely feel you’re ready to move ahead, yet everything seems stuck. Mr. Saturn in your House of Communication keeps saying, “Be patient,” yet that’s driving you nuts. With Venus in your sign now you don’t want to seem like a complainer, so instead you remain quiet and continue plugging along. A Libra New Moon opposite Uranus should help you realize you can’t pretend to be patient. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth now would indicate that things will eventually get moving, the trick is to keep your sh*t together until they do. In the meantime, try to understand that Mr. Saturn reminding you to breathe is not supposed to make you hyperventilate. This week’s haiku is for you.

“Patiently waiting

Like a dewdrop hanging on

A banana leaf “

Scorpio- As Jupiter and Mercury enter your sign followed by a New Moon opposite Uranus to start the week, the time has come for you to speak your truth. The final passing of a previous square between Mars and Mr. Saturn will help to eliminate any elements of self-doubt, while at the same time the arc of the Moon this week passing through your House of Secrets will serve to make you more contemplative than usual. This is a good thing as Pluto and Neptune in your Communication and Creativity areas will inspire the necessary confidence for you to speak softly, yet firmly and compellingly about what you truly need from a situation or an individual.

Sagittarius- If you have ever thought about seeing a Psychotherapist (or returning to one) this week is the time. Mercury will join Jupiter in Scorpio at the beginning of the week and will remain in your House of The Inner Self for approximately the next 3 weeks. These two planets are about communication and guidance and when combined with Neptune in your House of Foundations would point to this as being the perfect time to start digging through the fears and frustrations you need to let go of. The Sun will also enter Scorpio at the end of the week (if you live on the West Coast) and serve to reinforce this cleaning out the basement theme. Venus transiting your House of Hopes at this time would further ensure help coming if you’re willing to help yourself. “A word to the wise,” mutters Mr. Saturn.

Capricorn- The arc of the Moon this week will pass through your Houses of Philosophy, Career, and Groups. Has it crossed your mind lately to teach a class in the near future either locally or long distance? With Jupiter and Mercury conjunct in Scorpio in your House of Groups and Venus in your House of Career you will no doubt be quite a charismatic source of whatever topic you’re well versed in, which will no doubt be some very serious information. Combine all this with the fact that Mars is crossing your Mid-heaven and the stage is set for you to put yourself out there. At the risk of sounding New Agey, Mr. Saturn would say, “When the student is ready the teacher appears…. So, what are you waiting for? Make your entrance!”

Aquarius- With Jupiter, Mercury, and the Moon all passing through your House of Career this week (and the Sun arriving at the beginning of next week) you definitely think you’re ready for the big time, but then again there’s Neptune in your House of Self Worth creating that comfort zone you have. So, are you walking the walk, or just talking the talk? With Saturn in your House of Groups you may have been spending a lot of time as of late being a nurse maid to a bunch that is draining your energy (but making you feel important). Venus in your House of Travel and Philosophy could raise the possibility of a   trip (inner or outer), but can you leave the need for approval behind? Mr. Saturn suggests you move around a bit to make sure you haven’t become rooted and stuck without realizing it.

Pisces- Who are you? You know what others expect, but has their approval made you feel any less confused when you’re alone? Do you even still want the same things anymore? With Neptune in your sign you must consider that everything you have believed until now could be an illusion. That might sound depressing, but it will ground you back within yourself and that’s where the truth is. Mars in your House of Relationships arguing with Mr. Saturn has been causing you to feel pressured by what others are expecting of you, thus the New Moon opposite Uranus at the beginning of the week will have you feeling either rebellious or panicked. Jupiter, Mercury, and the Moon in your House of Philosophy later in the week will encourage you to go deep within to ask some really basic questions. If this seems to daunting to do alone, ask for help. Venus in your House of Shared Resources will be there with the support you need.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #5 Horoscopes for 10/9-10/15, 2017

Horoscopes for 10/9 – 10/15, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn is talking to you this week from the belly of the beast-the Queens County Civil Court in Jamaica, Queens. Surprisingly enough, this is one of the only places where Mr. Saturn is less than himself, though you’d think he would love a good Court House or Jail, right? Actually the reason he’s in court is because he was called for jury duty. Even Mr. Saturn has rules to follow.

Aries- You will probably be feeling a bit unsettled this week. A situation is changing with an important person in your life and with the Sun and Mercury in your House of Partnerships squaring Pluto you’re not really sure how things will turn out. When the Moon moves into Cancer in the middle of the week and meets up with Jupiter entering Scorpio, you may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. Not really, it’s just your control issues looking back at you from a mirror being held up by Neptune in your House of Confinement. Over the weekend after a Leo Moon enters your House of Fun and makes nice with Venus in Libra, you’ll no doubt have a big smile ready when Mr. Saturn asks you to say, “CHEESE!” for his fb post.

Taurus- This will be a week of mixed feelings as you move forward with a big decision you’ve made. If you’ve recently decided to move or switch jobs, make sure you realize that your fear of change is in your head, just like the possibility of losing touch with true friends. You wanted a fresh start and now you’re going to get it. Pluto in your House of Long Distance Journeys and Venus with Mars in your House of Creativity have been planning this with you for the last month, so move forward with confidence. Venus moving into Libra and the Moon in Leo over the weekend should provide a hopeful reception from whatever awaits. In the meantime Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you.

“Uncertainty forms

A space for discovery

To come and meet you”

Gemini- As the week begins you will find yourself re-evaluating your interactions with people. Mr. Saturn in your House of Relationships will be reminding you that the only one you really have control of is yourself. The way others treat you will only be a reflection of that, so stop letting someone else dictate the mood you’re in. As Jupiter enters your House of Work start letting those on the job see the real you. If you’re necessary to them then they’ll have to deal with it! The Leo Moon over the weekend will make you want to escape into the Land of Fun, where the Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all waiting.

Cancer- The arc of the Moon for you this week will begin with worrying about a friend or family member, followed by you trying to fix their problem for them, and ending with you making your own stressed out life a priority instead (at last!!!). Meanwhile, your job is still just a job, but a new challenge may be presented to you this the week that might make you forget how bored and unappreciated you have felt. A relationship should regain some of its old spark when Venus enters your domestic sphere and you decide to start bringing happy home again instead of your frustrations with the world. “Oh baby, you know what I like,” purrs Mr. Saturn.

Leo- Early in the week when the Moon enters Cancer and Jupiter moves into Scorpio your current living situation is going to become a major priority (if it isn’t already) simply because you don’t feel at home there (and never really did). You have compromised yourself into this corner for someone else and now you feel stuck. Realize you have the resources to change the situation so it isn’t you that’s stuck. It’s just that you’ve been waiting for a partner to start pulling their own weight. Maybe they need a push to get going (or is it you that needs to be pushed?)? When the Moon enters your sign over the weekend you’ll have all the reasons necessary to express yourself on this situation. Mr. Saturn is just wondering if it will come out like the meow of a pussycat or the roar of a lion?

Virgo- You’ve been occupied for a while now trying to make everything perfect before you offer your work to the world. As Jupiter enters Scorpio and Venus arrives in your House of Self Worth, it’s your confidence that’s going to have to rise to a level worthy of the work, not the other way around. You see it’s no longer about what you do (and you do it so well) it’s about what you think about yourself. The arc of the Moon this week will make you want to continue this excessive polishing of something that already shines, but what you need to realize instead is that you just have to get over a good old fashion case of cold feet. Unless of course you’d rather have your partner point it out to you? “Ouch!” comments Mr. Saturn.

Libra- A lot has been going on behind the scenes for you, in fact, if you look back, you’ll be surprised just how much your daily life has changed. It won’t be long before all the hard work you’ve been doing will start to show rewards. If money has been tight, plan on a welcome influx of opportunities and/or cash as Jupiter enters your House of Earnings and the Moon transits your House of Career. With Venus emerging out of the shadows at the end of the week and coming to visit, expect to be a little more in demand than usual. The Leo Moon over the weekend will be about friends, but don’t be surprised if you’re the center of attention. Mr. Saturn may even want to buy you a drink!

Scorpio- Jupiter is the planetary archetype of Philosophy and when it enters your sign early in the week don’t be surprised if you find yourself thinking a little bigger than usual. This expansive attitude will be helped when the Moon enters Cancer at the same time, so make sure you’re listening to those intuitive urges you’re feeling. A Mars/Saturn square will last most of the week and provide some immediate challenges in terms of your available resources, but when the Moon enters Leo over the weekend and squares Jupiter your pride will answer the call. As Mr. Saturn always say’s, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

Sagittarius- You seem to have so many responsibilities, but are any of them to yourself? Mr. Saturn in your sign has been like death and taxes, and his square to Mars this week will make it feel like you’re driving a car with the brake on at work. Pluto will also be aspecting Mars at this time and together they may be the answer to getting unstuck at work. That is, if you’re wiling to take a risk and look for another situation where you’d be more appreciated. Jupiter is the planetary ruler of your sign and this week it will enter Scorpio and cross the threshold into your House of Secrets. This is a very protective influence and could bring either moral support or financial help from a sympathetic friend or family member.

Capricorn- Pluto in your sign for the last minute has been like having the “Tibetan Book of the Dead” performed in your living room, although for the time being the Bardos containing the demons may be over. Jupiter entering Scorpio in your House of Hopes and Dreams at the same time as a Cancer Moon arrives in your House of Partnerships could bring a new friend or special someone into your life. Expect this person to be attracted to who you’re evolving into and not who you’ve been. Over the weekend Venus coming home to Libra and the Moon cruising into Leo will amp up your charisma, so make sure you’re out and about for the world to see. Mr. Saturn may even lower his shades to check you out!

Aquarius- With the lower part of your chart containing only Neptune in Pisces, Uranus in Aries, and the Moon, which will enter Cancer mid-week, this could be perhaps the most anxious you have felt in a while. When Jupiter enters Scorpio it will be crossing your mid-heaven, so be careful your pride doesn’t become your Achilles heel. Venus returning home to Libra is a good thing, but for you it may be no more than a nervous smile trying to hide some serious anger. After all, Pluto in your House of Secrets has been harboring more than a little resentment for a while. A word to the wise, Mr. Saturn has your House of Secrets scheduled for an audit at year’s end, so for now just try to breathe until Pluto and his work can be accounted for.

Pisces- With Uranus and Pluto camped out in two of your three money Houses, finances have been quite erratic for some time now. However, with Venus entering your House of Legacies, a welcome balance is now being introduced to that third money House so take a deep breath and relax. Jupiter entering Scorpio combined with the Moon in Cancer mid-week will serve to ignite your intuition and you may come up with some clever (and profitable) ideas. If you’ve been unemployed (or under employed) as of late, the Moon in Leo over the weekend could bring a lead for a new job. Mr. Saturn in your House of Career would add,“just make sure you’re scrubbed up right for any interview, appearances count.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #4

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/2 – 10/8, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Thanks for stopping by again this week. Are you ready for your straight, no chaser shot of Astrology? If any of you have any questions, or agree or disagree with anything that appears here, feel free to make a comment or even take a knee if you’d like. Mr. Saturn supports the NFL (No F**king Lies).

Aries- This week may turn out to be a lesson in the art of compromise. Even though you’re feeling inspired, maybe even visionary, circumstances may dictate this isn’t the right time for you to get your way. Of course this annoys you and having rebellious Uranus in your sign isn’t helping matters. A Full Moon in Aries late in the week will highlight relationship issues (specifically the absence of one). Mr. Saturn would suggest trying to be a little more Zen about how you could be more approachable, which would mean sitting still for a change and actually allowing someone else to do the approaching.

Taurus- On the surface you appear to be as stable as Mt. Fuji, but with a Full Moon this week in your House of Secrets you will be bubbling under the surface like a volcano. With Uranus in that secret place as well, the time has come for you Bulls to see red and put an end to all the crap you’ve been putting up with from passive aggressive (and even downright aggressive) assh*les. This weekend the Moon in your sign will be aligning with Venus, Mars, and Pluto, so be willing to let your hair down either figuratively or literally. Mr. Saturn would also add this reminder, “If you’re partying, make sure you do it responsibly and may the Force be with you.”

Gemini- Here we go again. You try to be fair to some lazy ass at work and instead end up being perceived as a push over. This week’s Aries Full Moon will be in your House of Groups and square Pluto in your house of Power, so maybe it’s time to stop worrying about being nice to a manipulator and instead be effective in dealing with them, especially if you’re going to be the one that’s ultimately responsible for what they do or don’t do. Being a History buff, Mr. Saturn would like to share one of his fav quotes, “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”

Cancer- The arc of the Moon this week will span from Pisces to Taurus, from sensitivity to stability, with an explosive stop in between when it reaches it’s full stage in compulsive, hard charging Aries. You may be tempted to lose it at work later in the week, but don’t take the bait. The person trying to provoke you has realized you’re beyond their influence and they’re grasping at straws. Your ability at this time to be the consummate professional will not only set the tone for where you’re headed psychologically and spiritually, but it will also drive this bully nuts! Mr. Saturn’s impressed…imagine that!

Leo- The point of having stability in your life is so you won’t have to worry about it. Venus and Mars in your House of Earned Income and Pluto in your job area would show that at this time you have a solid foundation to build on. The Full Moon in Aries later in the week in your House of Philosophy is therefore going to be more about your sense of self worth rather than your material status, meaning that any real sense of security needs to come from within you and not your circumstances. As a result, be careful about coming up with excuses to defer a dream you have. What’s that? No, you’re not hearing things, that’s Mr. Saturn clucking like a chicken in the background.

Virgo- With Mr. Saturn in your House of Foundations and the Full Moon in your House of Transformation, the theme this week should be one of reconciliation. You should seriously consider the possibility that the way you think of someone can prejudice the way you interpret (and subsequently judge) his or her behavior. The Full Moon in Aries may summon up some circumstances that could help you better understand the song lyric, “walk a mile in my shoes before you criticize and accuse.” Consider also that the harsh judgments you occasionally direct at others could actually be a projection of how you feel about yourself.

Libra- You could receive a surprise this week in the form of some unexpected recognition. Venus and Mars behind the scenes in Virgo along with the Aries Full Moon in your House of Partnerships could bring an offer to promote either something you’ve done in the past that’s still relevant or perhaps a newer idea whose time has come. Mr. Saturn rewards those who do the work and he’s been watching you toiling away in your House of Writing for the last couple of years. A Taurus Moon over the weekend will help you relax with loved ones. Enjoy a nature hike or just lounge on a park bench.

Scorpio- Pay attention to your health this week. Not that there is anything wrong, but you have been neglecting your body and if you want it to keep up with your active life-style then this could be the time for a tune-up. With Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun it may also be the right time for you to come out of hiding and show the world you’re available. Venus and Mars in your House of Friends and Groups will insure that you shine with that unmistakable Scorpio allure, while Jupiter behind the scenes under the light of a Full Moon could bring you luck in the form of a very interesting stranger. Woo woo!!!

Sagittarius- Be careful that you haven’t given up on the possibility of joy in your life. With the Full Moon this week in your House of Fun what would it take for you to say, “Oh what the hell!” and then do something enjoyable? The Sun is transiting your House of Groups so make sure you accept any invitations that come your way. Uranus could bring some unexpected adventures and maybe a new companion to help you explore this mysterious new world of happy. Mr. Saturn in your sign will still be your chaperone for a while, but he may just be willing to look the other way this time. Will you risk it?

Capricorn- We can go all the way to the other side of the earth but our issues will always follow us. An obstacle now may appear to be a set back, but a Full Moon this week at the bottom of your chart is going to birth a new you to rise to the occasion. Just remember babies don’t want to be born, they’re forced to. In fact they’re literally thrown out kicking and screaming. You’ve been praying for a change and now the time has come. All you have to do is be willing to change your mind; piece of cake, right? Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you. Enjoy.

“You can’t expect what

Will set you free, only hope

That you accept it”

Aquarius- Discretion may be the better part of valor for you this week. The temptation to speak your mind may be irresistible during the Aries Full Moon, but remember, a diplomatic Libra Sun is illuminating that Moon so keep to the Taoist principle that the Superior Individual shows his or her intelligence by concealing it. Besides, whomever this individual is that you’d like to unload on, they might just have something you will need in the future. Mr. Saturn say’s, “take your lead from Sydney Greenstreet in “The Maltese Falcon,” that dude was smooth.”

Pisces- The lessons you are learning now are not just about succeeding at whatever it is you need to accomplish, but also that you master the excesses of your personality in the process. The Full Moon this week in your House of Self Worth opposing a balanced Libra Sun in the House of Shared Resources will be trying to show you the connections that exist between how you feel about yourself and then how that attitude is reflected in the surrounding world. Mr. Saturn would summarize it as, “good luck is about who you are, not what you do.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #3

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/25 – 10/1 2017

 Hi kids!!! Welcome to the newest installment of “Mr. Saturn’s Stars”. Why don’t you get comfortable, take a deep breath, sit back, and relax. You have another 12 words to read before reality hits the fan and the lessons begin….<3

 

Aries- What would you like to see working better in your life? With Venus and Mars in your House of Health and Routines the time has come for some positive changes. Consider going for a make over, hiring a personal trainer, or even renovating your home or office space. The arc of the Moon this week through Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius will be telling you to “Acknowledge what needs to be done and then take the necessary steps. In addition Mr. Saturn would add, “and stop whining how difficult things are, it only makes matters that much worse.”

Taurus- As a Sagittarius Moon squares both Neptune and Saturn to start the week, you may be torn between being convinced you’ll be successful and worrying that the Universe is against you. By mid-week a Capricorn Moon along with Pluto, Venus, and Mars should be of assistance in helping you to understand that the truth is not the reflection of a mood, but rather a realization that exists somewhere between hope and pessimism in that unavoidable place known as effort. With the Moon in Aquarius over the weekend don’t be surprised if you hear Mr. Saturn whispering over your shoulder, “Build it, and they will come…. Go the distance!”

Gemini- You say you’re ready for a change, but with Neptune sitting at the top of your chart are you really sure what that means? Venus and Mars in your House of Foundations is like having one of those property-flipping couples from Cable TV show up at your door offering to transform your life into a more “open concept.” That may seem exciting, but are you ready to start digging under the surface of your day-to-day in order to see what needs to be repaired, or even trashed altogether? Mr. Saturn’s advice would be, “when people say they’re ready, it usually means they’re ready for what they already know. Real change needs to be a complete mystery, so be careful what you ask for……”

Cancer- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Growing pains are not just for kids.” You have learned that quite well over the last few months my crabby friend, having fretted and worried over every single change that has come down the pike for you and yours. But rejoice, an epiphany is at hand! Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Thinking are finally grounding all the visions Neptune has been downloading to you from the heavens. These realizations can be crystalized by simply repeating the Magick words, “LET GO”. You are about to enter a very creative phase when Jupiter goes into Scorpio next month, so get started now by doing something completely different, like forgiving yourself.

Leo- There is nothing sadder than seeing a Lion in captivity, unless of course that Lion is wearing the key to his cage around his neck. You’ve felt stuck for a while now, but if you’d just take a good look in the mirror you’d see that the key to freedom is in your possession. You’re ready for a change and you have the resources to make it happen. The question is, do you believe you deserve to have your dreams? With Jupiter and Uranus in your Houses of Writing and Philosophy this would probably be an excellent time to start organizing your creative ideas into a formal project. Once you’ve made the effort, Mr. Saturn in your House of Creativity might very well suggest, “If you need an editor, I’m available.

Virgo- With Venus and Mars aspecting Pluto in your House of Creativity and Romance your charisma at this time is undeniable, so make sure you get out there and work it! Look for a new job, promote your ideas, but remember, with Neptune in your House of Partnerships don’t make the mistake of being too agreeable or you could end up getting played. Jupiter and Uranus in opposing money houses could indicate either windfalls or rip-offs, so be careful. In short Mr. Saturn would advise, “Grass, gas, or ass, but no one rides for free!”

Libra- The Sun will be in your sign for the next month so don’t waste it! This week the Moon will be moving through your areas of Ideas, Foundations, and Creativity, so Mr. Saturn say’s get out there and start searching around to promote your ideas and creative projects, especially those involving writing or healing modalities. Relationships could be challenging at this time. What would be very helpful though in eliminating possible problems with partners and family would be a willingness to be honest and communicate. With Neptune in your House of Work and Routines things could get confusing, so don’t take anything for granted in your dealings with others.

Scorpio- Jupiter transiting through the secret part of your chart has been a protective influence for you at work. As a result you have been able to grow and mature in the face of some very difficult challenges. Now though you have the time (if you want) to focus on your personal life and the things that are closer to your heart. Get in touch with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, or spend some time with a special young person in your life. Follow through on that idea you are always thinking or talking about but never investing any time in. Take the time to “do you”. You are the inspiration for Mr. Saturn’s haiku this month, so put that thinking cap on!

Is your “free” time spent

Like a skydiver who thinks

Falling is flying?

Sagittarius- Neptune is a very slow moving planet and its action in our chart is subtle. Imagine filling a dirty pot with hot water and then letting it soak overnight so that the crusty leftover food will be easier to clean away. Neptune will be doing this in your House of Home and Family for several more years, meaning that any difficulties you are having now with your parents or siblings are intended to change you into what you need to be as opposed to what they want you to be. Pluto is your wingman on this as well, meaning your karma is at work, so pay attention! Mr. Saturn say’s “karma is like a Ping-Pong match. If you try to win then play only continues. The idea is to walk away and break the cycle.”

Capricorn- Your immediate reality has you extremely frustrated and you have lost sight of the forest for the trees. Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Philosophy have you struggling to make sense of your recent losses (Pluto) in the midst of a foggy present (Neptune). In addition, a Jupiter and Uranus opposition at the top and bottom of your chart has you struggling to keep sight of the stars that represent your dreams as you stand on the deck of a dramatically rocking ship piloted by Mr. Saturn, who is giving an Oscar worthy performance as the domineering Captain Bligh to your morally torn Mr. Christian.

Aquarius- You pride yourself as a “thinker” who knows it all, but as of late your philosophical outlook has only been about control. You want the environment to facilitate your comfort, when the smarter approach would be to let the environment transform you beyond your current limitations. The arc of the Moon this week will bring home a lesson of responsibility when it meets with Pluto in your House of Confinement. A “Personal New Moon” in your sign will follow this over the weekend just as Mercury enters Libra. Mr. Saturn would advise that the writing on the wall at this time is about balance and compromise, not control.

Pisces- As long as Neptune is in your sign it’ll seem like you’re living in San Francisco when the fog rolls in off Alcatraz and the harbor is reduced to zero visibility. A crowd of planets now in Virgo opposing Neptune may act like a spotlight and reveal to you something you’d rather not see; remember Bogie’s surprise in the Maltese Falcon when he discovers his dead partner down at the foggy pier? Mr. Saturn in your House of Career and Uranus in your house of Self Worth might be indicating it’s time to conform a little and accept how things are, even if it’s not how you want them to be. A current relationship may seem like the perfect escape, just don’t become someone else’s idea of you.

Phenomena #1

 

Introduction

Welcome to the first entry of “Phenomena,” a continuing series in which I will share some of the weird and paranormal events that occur in my life, instances that I feel not only challenge my understanding of reality, but also drive me to explore more deeply into the nature of my own consciousness.

Of course I understand that there might be some very unique challenges involved in doing a series of this nature. In the words of the late Robert Anton Wilson, I will effectively be trying to “Screw the inscrutable and eff the ineffable.” Nevertheless, I will do my best to be as truthful as I can and hopefully the initial sense of wonder that motivates me to recount an experience will also come across in the writing. Beyond that I won’t try to kid anyone. Whatever there is to be learned from these reports is something I will probably be trying to figure out along with the reader.

Sincerely, T.C. Eisele

 

Phenomena #1

 As a warm, late afternoon gives way to the approaching shadows of evening, my wife and I are sitting quietly in our backyard and enjoying some wine. She is busy on her laptop and I’m engaged in reading the label on the back of the bottle we’re working on. The description of this wine begins with, “This velvety-smooth black Pinot Noir is reminiscent of the early evening sky, just before darkness settles in.” “How serendipitous,” I think to myself, and then read the description aloud to my wife. “That’s pretty cool,” she replies, giving me a quick smile and then going back to her computer.

The idyllic scene in our backyard is eventually interrupted when my cell phone begins ringing with the eerie, twilight zone-like melody I chose for it. “Who in hell is calling me while I’m trying to relax with my beautiful trophy wife?” I say to no one in particular. After turning to look at me over the tops of her glasses, my wife frowns and sticks out her tongue. “Love you too baby,” I say, as I check to see who is on the phone.

“Why are you calling me?” I ask my wife. She turns away from her computer screen and looks at me. “I didn’t call you.” Without a word I simply hold up the ringing phone so she can see her name on the screen. “Oh my God, that’s so strange. Look, my phone is all the way over there and I haven’t touched it!” Sure enough, when I look over toward where she is pointing, there is my wife’s phone, out of reach on the other side of the table. At that moment my phone stops ringing and for the next few seconds we both just sit there and look at one another.

My wife then stands up and reaches for her phone.

“If you were you thinking of me that might have been what set off your phone?’ I say to her, trying to add some levity to the atmosphere of weirdness that has now descended.

After checking her phone, my wife shakes her head and remarks, “How is this possible? There is no record of any call to you.” Now I’m curious, so I go back to search in my phone and to my amazement there is no record that my wife had just called!

By this time the birds have flown away and the night is spread out over the surrounding yards like a cool, dark bed sheet. As the lights start to come on in the surrounding houses, my wife and I begin gathering our things to go inside. Once my wife is in the house, I stand there alone under the starry sky and softly recite to myself;

“Therefore, send not to know

For whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee.”

 

Indeed.

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.

 

Sincerely, T.C. Eisele
