Sun-Saturn Opposition August 26/27
regret & restriction
On Sunday August 27th the Sun opposes Saturn at 1:27 am PT and at its most basic, this opposition speaks of poisoned waters both in a literal and metaphorical sense. This energy advises caution around water in particular, drinking unfiltered water (the process of filtration and removal of sediments etc to get to the pure essence of a substance falls under Virgo). I would also advise against swimming in any body of water that has not been recently tested for bad bacteria.
If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I believe Japan’s decision to release Fukishima waste water into the Pacific on Thursday (24 August) was a mistake.
It is a decision Japan will come to regret (Mercury Rx in the sign of their exaltation) and sadly we will all pay for it in a myriad ways. Please pray for our ocean kin and our Mother Gaia.
Closer to home, this Sun-Saturn opposition speaks of delays and restrictions that are not supportive. In other words the problem you currently face with another person (probably an older person, a gatekeeper or authority figure) has very little if anything to do with your hard work and efforts and everything to do with their own issues.
An opposition is ALWAYS about a relationship. You and me. X and Y. Me and Them.
It is very possible that the person who is seemingly blocking your progress is struggling with an addiction, is depressed or is feeling overwhelmed by their responsibilities (Saturn in Pisces).
Use this period to get realistic on your own expectations, practice patience and get organized. The overall astrology at the moment (Sun in Virgo, Mercury Rx in Virgo, Venus Rx in Leo) favors organization and preparation.
Lastly I hope you make time this weekend to view Saturn. The planets adore our attention and I firmly believe that if more of us looked up with awe and reverence on a regular basis like our ancestors did, they would extend their many mercies and lighten our burdens.
Saturn is the farthest planet from Earth easily visible by the unaided human eye. It will appear on the southeastern horizon at sunset and you can spot the bright yellowish “star” all through the night until sunrise. - Nasa
