The Saturn-Neptune Opposition

By Brenda Black, ASA Publicity Chair

Saturn has been opposing Neptune since August 31, 2006 when they were at 17º Leo and Aquarius. On February 28, 2007 at 5:01 AM MST they will oppose each other once again at 20º Leo and Aquarius. The last hit will be on June 25, 2007 at 21º. Saturn represents autonomy and boundaries, and Neptune represents fusion and blurred boundaries. Following are issues for each sign in 2006-2007:

Aries/Libra - There is a pull between a friendship with someone and a romance with someone else. Some will turn a passionate pastime into a business.

Taurus/Scorpio - There is heavy karma with a parent. Some are traveling, trying to find their true spiritual home. You appear mysterious and glamorous to the public.

Gemini/Sagittarius - You think in “pictures” and have success in writing and publishing. You feel renewed and refreshed by travel. There are dealings with the law.

Cancer/Capricorn - There is a heavy monetary responsibility and fear of losing money. Some can earn money as a psychic. Some will find a wonderful romantic partner.

Leo/Aquarius - You are learning that a solid inner relationship with yourself leads to a happy union with someone else. Some will make money through acting and film.

Virgo/Pisces - Some will find that healing comes through the power of prayer. Others will find that research into the family tree will free them from illness and addiction.

February 1, 2007 - At 6:57 AM there is a Full Moon at 13º Leo/Aquarius. The Sun is conjunct the asteroid Pallas Athena. Tap into your creative intelligence now.

February 13, 2007 - At 9:38 PM MST Mercury will turn Retrograde at 10º Pisces. The shadow point started around January 29th, and there have already been symptoms of Mercury Retrograde, such as misunderstandings, delayed communication and computer problems. Since both Mercury and Juno, the Asteroid of Marriage, are going backward on Valentine’s Day, it is not quite the time to get engaged, but it is perfect for romantic partners to revisit that restaurant, movie theatre or resort where they had a wonderful time in the past. The best thing to do under Mercury Retrograde is to review and revise goals, back up your computer, have regular maintenance done on your car, and have more personal down time. Mercury will turn direct on March 7th at 9:45 PM at 25º Aquarius.

February 17, 2007 - At 9:14 AM MST there will be a New Moon at 28º Aquarius. This is the 6th New Moon in a row that occurs in the last degrees of a sign. Suggested meditation (from Jan Spiller): “I want total clarity regarding the best ways I can participate with others to create successful win-win outcomes.”
