“Revisiting Saturn in the Second House of the Solar Return – Incredible!”

File Tung N solar return 2009

During the earlier part of this year as the financial meltdown began to really show its’ ugly head, the company I work for made some drastic changes to keep afloat until the upturn began again.  A co-worker I am friendly with had wanted to know what might be happening financially for him in the coming year.  I gave him a private reading, which he was quite happy with.  As the predictions came true, I decided to post an article on May 22nd 2009 entitled “Saturn in the Second Solar Return House” The following paragraph is an edited version of the delineation of the Chart.

“His ability to adapt and to improve his situation serves him well.  His need especially during the coming year is to secure a stable future with the need to see his own worth.  I say this because to me the second house not only concerns money and possessions, but knowledge and how to use it is more important then having money.  His ability to take his thinking to a more pragmatic level so as to secure the future he desires is imminent.  Saturn will work its’ magic as he will have to take a salary cut and his 401 will not be immune from the onslaught, but Venus in the ninth gives him the ability to work his magic in picking his investments and balancing his concerns for the future.  The need for him is to understand that his ability to analyze stock investments is a God given talent he should not take lightly.  His instinct to survive whatever comes his way is a gift from the Universe to secure the future he desires for his family and himself.”

To arrive at this delineation I use Morin’s method of house ruler of the second to any planets in the return house and aspects to the natal chart.  The person made so many right decisions on his 401k and his investments, that he was able to bring his savings back up to a point where he is quite happy with it, even with his salary being cut.  Hearing this I wanted to revisit Saturn in the second house of the Solar return chart, because as far as Morin is concerned, there should be at least two aspects to confirm any prediction of importance.

The first is that Saturn in the natal is exalted in Aquarius and in its’ own house, so that the malefic effect of Saturn in the second solar return house is minimized with it being sextile to the Moon in its’ own sign which it is happy with.  In the natal chart Venus is in a minor essential dignity on the cusp of the ascendant with Jupiter also at this angle, giving importance to these two planets in the chart.  Jupiter on the angle of the solar return seventh house sextile Venus in the ninth, again showing a connection between these two.  What better confirmation of his ability to use his innate ability of judgment with his investments to secure his future security.

The Sabian Symbol for Venus at 30 degrees of Aries is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”.  My comment will follow the excerpts from the book.

“Aries 30  A duck pond and its brood  This is a symbol of the eternal fitness of things, provided the individual take the fullest advantage of the cosmic ordering.  Implicit in the symbolism is man’s ability to establish his world of experience according to his own needs, and to function effectively because he has the acumen to align himself with his own genius and to seek a personal satisfaction in a simple efficacy of being himself.  The keyword is reliability.  When positive, the degree is an accustomed competency or ease in dealing with immediate circumstances, and when negative, a tendency toward provincialism or an acceptance of life with an altogether uncritical complacency.  The keyword for 16th degrees of Aries is invigoration.

I think the Sabian Symbol gives deeper meaning to this interpretation of the chart by giving a purpose for his talent in securing the money and the means for a safe and secure abode for his love ones, and his ability to turn a negative situation into a positive one, which becomes very invigorating for the individual.
