Saturn in Libra

Mars and Saturn in Libra

Mars conjunct Saturn in Libra Illustration by Daniel Marsula

For the next week or so we will be living with Mars and Saturn conjunct in Libra.

Libra is normally a lovely sign – it is concerned with fairness, equality, peace and harmony, beauty and an aesthetically pleasing environment.  But when Mars gets into Libra it likes to stir things up.  Mars is said to be in its detriment in Libra, and in Libra it tends to go underground.  Rather than be directly obnoxious, as Mars prefers to be, Mars in Libra covers its irritation and anger with a veneer of Libran polish so that it’s hard to really see the truth that lies beneath.

Here we have Saturn overseeing this process, making sure that we must face the cold hard reality of the truth, even though Mars in Libra is doing its best to obscure those facts.  Mars and Saturn working together are described as driving with the brakes on.  Mars wants to create action, and Saturn creates its famous delays.  Both are in Libra where action is difficult because all options are equally attractive.

However, Jupiter and Uranus are opposing Mars and Saturn and stirring the pot.  We want to act – we are almost desperate for some kind of change to take place (Jupiter/Uranus opposing Mars).  But Saturn is the enforcer right now.  If you are sending delays and blockages, sit back and wait until […]

The astrological history of the sexual revolution: Part 1

sexual revolutionA reader on my suggested a connection between Saturn in Libra and the sexual revolution.  Saturn was actually in Libra between 1950 and 1953, placing it a little earlier than the actual sexual revolution which we typically think of occurring in the 1960s along with all of the other revolutions brought about by the conjunction of Uranus (the revolutionary) with Pluto (the transformer).  But it can definitely be argued that Saturn’s passage through Libra, the sign of relationships, created some of the challenges that led up to the sexual revolution in the 1960s.

When Saturn went through Libra in the early 1950s the world was recovering from World War II.  In the United States this was the Ozzie and Harriet era – a time of booming prosperity in which suburban life became rigidly codified into an increasingly comfortable prison of rigid sex roles.  The husband went out to work, the wife stayed home.  This is Saturn (structure) in Libra (balancing polarities) in its purest form.

At the time, Saturn conjoined Neptune in Libra, so Neptune was there as well adding a touch of glamor and fairy dust to the whole situation.  There was a great deal of idealism and a willingness to ignore any problems that resulted from an increasingly rigid societal structure.  And with Pluto still traveling through Leo, every aspect of life was seen through the lens of expression of Self.  But Saturn was still present creating tests and challenges, and Simone deBeauvoir’s landmark work began to grow in its influence over American women when it was translated into English in 1953 with Saturn still in Libra.

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 […]

Diane says goodbye to Saturn in Virgo

My fellow Libran Diane Lang says goodbye to Saturn in Libra in this wonderful post:

I am past ready for Saturn to finish up his current tour through Virgo and move on into Libra. He reminds me far too much of my Libra mom who had lots of Virgo (and Pisces) in her chart . . . always nagging me unrelentingly about my diet, exercise and getting all my little seasonal chores completed!

That being said, I have made significant progress during the Saturn in Virgo years in fine tuning what it takes to stay healthy in a post menopausal body. Believe me when I say there is a LOT less latitude for fudging by eating too many sweets, high fat foods or not getting out for a good brisk walk on a regular basis. I quit smoking over nine years ago and though there are times when I would dearly love a cigarette, the temptation to smoke again is minor. I would love to indulge myself but since Saturn returned to Virgo in early April, it has been made abundantly clear that is not going to happen. At least not without seriously unpleasant and immediate consequences!

Right now both Venus AND Mars are in Virgo along with Saturn and it sure feels like it. Usually Mars in Virgo transits to my tenth house are about being way busy on the job but this time the parental authority side of the tenth is the stronger voice in my head. My inner parent is pushing hard to keep me on task with putting up fruits and vegetables from our large garden, hence fewer posts here on Libra Seeking Balance – less time at the computer and more time at the kitchen sink.

Of course Saturn is always somewhere, and […]
