Saturn is a complex and powerful archetype, and lives in everyones birth chart someplace! Where Saturn is in the astrology chart tells us about where we are to develop mastery--and therefore where our most important lessons lie. Called many things: Devourer, Time Lord, the Cosmic Fitness Instructor (I think I came up with that one!), the Great Malefic, Dweller on the Threshold, Dark Angel, he holds a scythe, symbolizing the cutting away of that which does not serve. Associated with Kali, Goddess of Time, Saturn is also the alchemical lead which we burn away in order to find our Divine Gold. He holds the key to many secrets for those who are willing to become initiates into the mysteries of the Black Sun.
In this three part webinar, we will explore the alchemical, historical, magickal, practical, and psychological role of Saturn in mythology and the birth chart.
Part I: Saturn as Deity and Dark Angel
Did you know that Saturn played a major role in the birth of Venus? This first part of the series will explore the mythology and archetype of Saturn. Why did medieval astrologers call Saturn the Great Malefic? What is the association with the Dark Goddess and Kali? How is it that "Saturn" and "Satan" sound similar and what is the deeper meaning behind that? (yes, they are connected, but maybe not the way that most think!) If Saturn is about fear and limitation, how is he also paradoxically about freedom and creation? How is Saturn connected to what is known as the "left hand path"? 60 mins.
Part II: Saturn in the Birth Chart
We'll explore the meaning of Saturn through the signs houses. What is "Karma" and how does it play out in the personal chart? What is the meaning behind the "lessons" of Saturn? Saturn is the key planet involved in physical manifestation, so we will explore how Saturn's lessons empower us on a practical level via organization and prioritization. We will look at the ways in which Saturn holds the key to our personal grounding and strength, connecting us to our powers of creation and mastery. 60 mins.
Part III: Saturn in Transit
Transits are moving influences that herald major shifts in our lives. Saturn transits last for 9 months (the time it takes to gestate a human being!) and happen at certain times, indicating the birth of a new self and a juncture of maturation into an updated phase of life.
What is a Saturn Transit? Are they supposed to be "difficult"? What is the "Saturn Return"? Are there special Saturn transits in midlife? How does Saturn help us progress and manifest our desires via time and space parameters and contrast? 60 mins.
