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
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
DEC 22 TO JAN 19
Capricorn – sea goat
Makalii is a sea goat-ambassador, the researcher. It was during this month that volcanic eruptions formed the Hawaiian Islands and from the depths of the ocean came Koa, the great goat with a fish tail and no horns. Through compassion from the god Lono, Koa was given two horns. His tail withered away which then made him a land creature. Persons under this sign are ambitious and likely to become successful.
Jan 20 to Feb 18
Aquarius – water bearer
Kealo is the water bearer-truth seeker or scientist. This is the month in which the oceans, streams and Continue reading
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:
The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci Maps the Star Path of the Sun
From Free Thought Nation, 2013
Leonardo’s sublime fresco, The Last Supper, depicts the story of the meal Jesus Christ shared with his twelve disciples the night before he was crucified. My analysis of the stances of Christ and the disciples indicates that Leonardo used the twelve constellations of the zodiac, the star path of the sun, as his template for the painting.
The twelve apostles are based on the successive star patterns traversed by the sun each year. Christ himself is modelled on the constellation Pisces, the star position of the Sun at the spring equinox through the two millennia of the Christian Era.
The Last Supper shows animated conversation and high drama, Continue reading
The reason why all these narratives are so similar, with a godman who is crucified and resurrected, who does miracles and has 12 disciples, is that these stories were based on the movements of the Sun through the heavens, an astrotheological development that can be found throughout the planet because the sun and the 12 zodiac signs can be observed around the globe. In other words, Jesus Christ and all the others upon whom this character is predicated are personifications of the Sun, and the Gospel fable is merely a rehash of a mythological formula (the “Mythos”) revolving around the movements of the Sun through the heavens.
