Saturn in the Signs – Interpretations
Below are the interpretations of Saturn in the zodiac signs. To read what Saturn represents in astrology, go to Lesson 5: The Planets.
Saturn in Aries
The best quality of Saturn is system and the best quality of Aries is leadership. Therefore, if you have Saturn in Aries, you can be a very capable leader, one who knows what to do and is not afraid of going out and doing it no matter what it takes or how long it takes. Combat and competitiveness spur you on to greater achievements. Self-reliance is high within you and you probably feel that you are more capable than those around you, hence you may end up doing all the work, which may antagonize you if you feel that others are not holding up their end of things. Saturn’s worst quality is selfishness and Aries worst quality Continue reading
Scorpio 1st house
A steady unbreakable gaze. The winner of a staring contest. Boring holes through the back of people’s heads with your eyes. Liking to give off an impression of being intense. A passionate approach to life. A person who likes to cause extreme reactions in others through their personal appearance: sometimes making extreme faces, other times showing no expression at all. Hiding all clues to the inner self through the outer mask. A person who actually, physically, hides. A person who does not like having photos taken. A person who seeks an outer, physical transformation. A person who is obsessed with her own appearance. A person whose presence exudes sexuality. Intense presence. Sexual presence. A person who approaches life in a paranoid and suspicious way. A person who has an intensely healing presence. Making people feel uncomfortable. A person who doesn’t know how to relax. A person who Continue reading
Astrology, Karma & Nidanas
By Kim Graae Munch, 2012
Nidanas and the Zodiac
The twelve Nidanas are the karmic powers keeping man reincarnating on the Earth. This is an experiment where I test the thesis: “They are the powers of the Zodiac, but they are not following the same sequence around the Zodiac as the star signs.”
The twelve Nidanas consists of three groups, the first group of four is the Cardinal signs, the next group are the Mutable and the last group are the Fixed star signs. In the following tables and zodiac I have placed the Nidanas on the zodiac following these principles. The following paragraph is by Rudolf Steiner, the tables are extended by me and the figure is my design, and I had reformatted and added star signs.
Nidanas and the Signs
When man returns from Devachan, the astral, etheric and physical forces arrange themselves around Continue reading
Duality and Unity: Planets in Gemini
by Alan Oken
As our inner eye awakens, it sees with ever-increasing clarity the relationship between the visible and the invisible, and knows that these two are drawing ever closer together. —A.O.
Sun in Gemini:
The solar force and thus the sense of personal identity expresses in Gemini as a desire to experience life through constant variations in what one does and how one does it. There is a great need for intellectual stimulation that at its best is the constant pursuit of knowledge and the life skills that come with knowing. When negative, this orientation leads to dissipation, diffusion, and instability. There is a definite propensity to dualism: two relationships, two jobs, two sets of opinions, etc. Yet when under the direction of the coordinated and integrated mind, such dualism is holistic in nature, allowing the individual to multitask successfully. When it is not, Gemini is seen to scurry about trying to be in two (or more!) places simultaneously and not succeeding at all.
Moon in Gemini:
Rahu & Ketu
By C. Hartley, 1997
According to the Sanskrit epic poem, the Mahabharata, the Hindu gods decided to mix up a batch of soma, the elixir of immortality. The gods were to drink the elixir to become immortal. The gods needed help from the demons to stir up the oceans to produce the elixir.
Out of the churning oceans the Sun, Moon, many goddess, and magic things were produced along with the soma. Vishnu took charge of distributing the freshly made soma to the gods but while it was being passed out the demons started battling with the gods for a taste of the elixir and in the confusion one of the demons, Rahu, disguised himself as a god and drank some of the elixir. Continue reading
Christian Astrology…The Signs of the Disciples
by Tiara Starr, 2001
Astrologers of the past have taken the time to study the disciples of the Messiah and have associated each with a sign of the zodiac. The importance of having twelve apostles was so great, that after the demise of Judas, he was quickly replaced. As if to say that without twelve disciples, the group was not whole.
And they appointed two; Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Mathias.
The eleven disciples then cast lots (resembling the tossing of dice) and Mathias was chosen to replace Judas, the betrayer.
Peter, also known as Simon and or Cephas, is said to be the Aries. Very vibrant and fiery. He was a Continue reading
In mythology, Andromeda (Ἀνδρομέδα or Ἀνδρομέδη ) is the daughter of Coepheus, a Moor king, and Cassiopeia. Androméda meaning the “ruler of men”, from ἀνδρός (andrós) “man”, and medon, “ruler”.
When Cassiopeia’s hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon, influenced by Hades sends Coetus, to ravage the Moor’s land as divine punishment. Andromeda is stripped and chained to a rock as a sacrifice to Coetus, but is saved by Perseus.
As a subject, Andromeda has been popular in art since classical times; it is one of several myths of a hero’s rescue of the intended victim of an archaic Hieros gamos (sacred marriage), giving rise to the “princess and dragon” motif. Interest in the story was derived from Ovid’s account. Continue reading
