This week I am starting my travels to South Africa a long awaited journey and for you my readers, you could find yourselves traveling another expedition that engages your highly intelligent problem solving skills. This practice puts you on a new and clear direction and path leading you to your next exciting journey. This is particularly strong over the course of the next few days as Mercury stations to go direct at 1° Aquarius 28′ and Saturn gets close to the 4th degree of Sagittarius.
Since late December, Saturn entered Sagittarius where it last traveled between 1985 and 1986. However, whenever a slower planet like Saturn puts its toe into a new sign, it takes about 3° to get its mojo going so that we all clearly see what our next steps of organizational planning might be.
Saturn rules disciplines, but Sagittarius wants to be free and have a long leash. This is the challenge of the next 2 ½ years. These next few weeks show us a picture of how to have vision but also shows us a picture of what we need to do (not always a lot of fun) in order to make that vision a reality. Double checking what you say, or, what you’ve done, rather than saying — oh that is good enough — is part of the learning curve we face.
Since Saturn will be stationing to go retrograde (appear to go backwards) at the 4th degree around mid-March, the plot is laid. This early preview at the Saturn in Sagittarius movies is just a preview. Previews are ticklers — they either titillate you or horrify you. Either way, they are designed to mirror back to you the ‘issues’. These ‘issues’ are, of course, ‘issues’ of others or other organizations. For example, the 3rd and 4th degrees of Sagittarius are the degrees of flight. Could the airlines find themselves on the hot seat as more mechanical problems result in tragic accidents, or, if the price of oil is still down, answering, honestly, while travel is becoming increasingly expensive?
The other issues to which I refer are our issues. What aren’t we willing to look at because it is just too uncomfortable or we are having too good a time, or, whatever? Don’t worry because it is just a preview. The real story starts in September 2015. But it is best to start correcting the behaviors that keep me or you or us from attaining our goals. Progress and advancement and specialization require time — not just a ‘good enough’ attitude. Dave Grant was a motivational speaker about two decades ago and I remember his comment, “If you have a choice between pleasure and pain, do the pain first, then pleasure is a true reward!” How much do you want IT?
