Saturn at the 29th degree: A fiesta of recalls

Saturn tends to create challenges and shows us where we have to wake up to some cold, hard realities.  As it has traveled through Virgo over the past two and a half years, it’s been bringing up some difficult truths about the healthcare system and in fact our very health itself.  Virgo is associated with health, but also with the mundane details of taking care of life in a body.  Under Saturn in Virgo it was discovered that hormone replacement therapy was actually bad for women.  The cold hard reality of the burgeoning cost and diminishing effectiveness of the healthcare systems around the world has become evident.

Virgo is also associated with perfectionism, work and service, and Saturn’s restriction in Virgo has seen millions of people lose their jobs and have to recreate a new life from scratch.

When a planet is at the 29th degree of a sign it is completing its business there, and as Saturn completes its passage through Virgo there have been a plethora of recalls of all types, as the perfection that Saturn seeks in Virgo reveals the poor quality of many of our products.  These are just a few of the recent recalls in the news:

  • Kellogg recalled 28 million boxes of various brands of cereal after a smell in the packaging revealed the presence of a petroleum-based chemical.  This chemical, methylnaphthalene, is approved by the FDA but it is linked to serious  lung damage in some studies.
  • McNeil Consumer Healthcare (a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary) has been linked to recalls of several of their products over the past year or so because of a musty, moldy smell in the packaging.  McNeil is now under investigation by several government agencies.
  • A children’s jewelry manufacturer, Tween Brands, recalled its jewelry which contained toxic amounts of cadmium.
  • Romaine lettuce in Hawaii and baby spinach in several states were recalled for potential E Coli problems.
  • A cat food manufacturer (Feline’s Pride) has recalled several of its product lines which were contaminated by salmonella.
  • Four states have recalled Diamond dried apricots due to undeclared sulfites that were discovered during random testing.

Then there is Toyota, whose recall of Toyota and Lexus models began under Saturn in Virgo and has continued to expand over the past year to include over 270,000 cars world-wide.

Saturn enters Libra on July 21st, leaving Virgo behind for good.  Hopefully these Virgoan details can be taken care of before then!

    I can guarantee you, I am celebrating the exit of Saturn from my Virgo House II – as you can imagine these have been the hardest 2 years of my past 2 decades!!! In transition re-inventing myself for the sake of my young daughter! On 21st July, we will be settling in in another country… what a synchronicity!

    Saturn began a long, 2.5 year slog through my 2nd house when it hit 15 Virgo. I had multiple jobs at the time and one by one they were all eliminated except the one that paid the least! Saturn won’t get the h… out of my 2nd house until August, 2011, when I assume I can expect car trouble.

    Great post Lynn, as usual!

    Saturn’s exit from Virgo is a welcome relief: it made its second return to its natal position at 28 degrees (exactly squaring natal Mars in Sag), in what I call my should-I-stay-or-should-I-go conundrum. Now that old Saturn’s moved on, I feel less constrained and more directed, less frustrated and more free. I feel I’m more relaxed – less fearful – with decisions I’ve made, so I can catch my breath and move on in a less-haste-makes-less-waste manner without missing out on anything. I’m cautiously optimistic that I’m on my way to making good use of the challenges offered by the tightest natal aspect in my chart. I’ll know better in 7 years time, I guess.

    I really cannot wait for it to leave Virgo, and at the same time, my 8th house. Saturn went into my 9th house, bringing some respite, then dipped BACK into my 8th when it retrograded back into Virgo.

    Past few months have been rubbish – Saturn’s sojourn in the 8th house has been no picnic.
