"A new gigantic ring brought our attention to Saturn last week, just as Saturn is about to enter Libra on October 29, 2009. Saturn will make a brief visit to Virgo again this coming Spring from April 7, until July 2010, after which Saturn will stay in Libra until October 4, 2012, and then it will enter Scorpio."
"Saturn will be entering the sign of Libra on October 29, leaving the sign of Virgo where it has spent the last two years and some months challenging all of our conventional ideas about health and healing and ensuring that we embrace the Virgoan virtues of modesty, thrift and caution.
Libra is the sign of relationships and balance between two polarities. In Libra we understand the yin and the yang, the plus and the minus, the inner and the outer, and recognize that both ends of the polarities are valid."
"Because Saturn is essentially dignified in Libra, the sign if its exaltation, Saturn is welcome to this sign and can do only good things for all planets points and houses that are placed in this sign. Planets that are placed in Libra will be given nothing but support from a Saturn in its happiest and even most powerful state. Saturn has in fact got more essential dignities in Libra than he has in his own signs of Aquarius and Capricorn. The idea of an exaltation is that the planet is increasing in strength and power.
"aturn truly is the great teacher and the economic changes, health care changes, and new ways of thinking of the mind/body connection have been gifts of this planet wearing the costume of Virgo. Virgo is very analytical and in Astrology what is known as a Mutable sign, which is the energy as we end one season and begin another. Mutable kind of likes to go with the flow and not make waves normally. We have had so many options this last 2 and ½ years , and at times been confused as to what steps to take with so much energy in signs which truly do not push us to take action.
"When Saturn enters the sign of Libra in October, Mars will do a dance in the house of Leo. What does that mean for the world? What does that mean for you personally? This will become a matter of interpretation and your best source is a good Astrologer. Let me explain more specifically. First, Saturn will be entering Libra on October 30th, 2009. If you are a Libra, many challenges and new obligations will be put before you. Your acceptance of these challenges is revealed by your natal Sun and aspects. For all intents and purposes, the vib
"All of which is expressive of today’s topic of Saturn in Libra, the sign it is shortly to enter. Saturn is to do with authority, and Libra is to do with both sides of a question and with fairness, it is a political sign. And what I was encountering was like a re-visit of the protesting spirit of the 1960s, in all its mixedness. We are just entering the opening square of the Uranus-Pluto cycle that began in the 1960s, and which embodied the spirit of those times.
"Libra is Saturn´s sign of exaltation. Saturn is also said to have both terms, face and triplicity in various degrees of this sign. So in Libra it is possible for Saturn to actually hold as much essential dignity as in his signs of rulership Capricorn and Aquarius. In Libra then, Saturn is at home, he is not given the authority or responsibility that is given in his own signs, but he is given all of the fine things, ease and happiness that it is possible for that benific Venus to give."
"Themes we can expect while Saturn moves through the sign of Libra, on a personal level, revolve around taking a more serious look at our one-to-one relationships.
