“Saturn the Late Bloomer with its Many Surprises and Benefits”

In the earliest days of my studies in astrology, my introduction to Saturn was embedded with caution, dread and amazement of the power, the energy and the malefic influences the planet can play in one’s life.  The stories that were related to me, as if I was smart enough to have recorded them at the time, would have been truths that would be more unbelievable then any fiction.  It had given me the seeds for stories to be written, if only I was attentive to what was happening around me at the time.  My first astrology teacher not only had the ability to explain difficult concepts, but was a great story teller when giving examples of the different aspects, the different signs and the different planets.  This I found is the destructive, distractive and malefic nature of the planet, in that it tends to tease one with structure, steadfastness, stability, consistency, limitation, stamina, without the compassion and understanding of the circumstances one is experiencing.  In my research and studies with Saturn, I have discovered that the planet is considered the Prince of Time.  Saturn is sometimes the late bloomer with many surprises and benefits.

When we approach our own Saturn Return in our lives, which happens approximately around thirty and sixty years of age, the surrounding atmosphere is one of apprehension of what is about to change in our lives, if at all.  It is not the change we fear, but the reminder that time is marching on and that we are aging and moving on to a different aspect of time in our lives.  What we fear most in my opinion with the Saturn Return is not the difficulties and trials that are laid before us, but the reminder that time moves on, and there is no turning back time.  Fortunately for us, the Universe in its wisdom has instilled in Saturn a duality that is reflected by Jupiter.  In studying the glyphs of the two planets, one will instantly see they are in reverse indicating the connection and the nature of the energy and power of each in its duality, polarity and unison as one.  In understanding and analyzing the classification of words of benefic and malefic, it does not imply one is better off then the other.  We have seen that too much of a good thing can become disastrous and the discipline of controlling a negative trait can become constructive and positive in some instances. 

In my opinion Saturn has been given a bad rapt and we need to revisit and rethink how the planet works and distribute its energies and blessings in own world.  Without discipline and structure, nothing would get accomplished, but yet at the same time we rebel at the thought of limitation and the configuration of what life should be.  Our own vision and decisions can bring out the worst qualities of Saturn through inflexibility, cruelty, compulsiveness, rigidity, embitterment, and narrow-mindedness, etc…  Saturn rules the end of a situation or the last period of our life.  It is instrumental in delaying manifestations of our dreams and wishes into reality until the right moment in time.  Summarizing I feel that when one works with Saturn, a sense of caution and care with awe and amazement of how effortlessly it creates and teaches us what we need to know and to accomplish.  The effort needed, is with us to comprehend the moment and by living it with the zest that comes with it.  Saturn is not the planet to promise a successful completion of one’s dream and wishes, but is the one to give us the key to arrive at the end of the rainbow to receive our pot of gold with many surprises along the way.
