Saturn Changes Signs But Not Houses (In Your Chart): What Does It Mean?

"saturn square moon" It’s kind of a technical topic but an important one!

What happens when a planet changes SIGN but doesn’t change HOUSE — in your chart?

And let’s say you use PLACIDUS (or some other house system) and NOT the Whole Sign system (which would give you a new house position when the planet changes signs).

What does it feel like?
What can you expect?

I recommend to use the house system that you believe in, the one you are comfortable with, the one you believe to be true for you.

But I also think it’s worthwhile to do double-duty.

Do Placidus AND Whole.
Do Koch AND Whole.
Do Equal AND Whole.

Or whatever combination you prefer.

I’ll tell you what I’m noticing – about my own chart. I think it may help you too.

Saturn in Sagittarius was my 4th House.

And I also had Saturn square my Moon so there were big time lessons and messages and revelations about HOME and family and BELONGING and a move and a big rental house and etc etc and my beloved Cleo went from body to pure energy, pure spirit (very Saturn 4th, also Pluto 4th in my Solar Return)…

Using Placidus, Saturn is STILL in my 4th House.

I call it “finishing up” in my 4th House and won’t enter my 5th until… late this year or early 2019 (have to check the degree).

OR is Saturn already in my 5th? Is Whole Signs more TRUE but that cusp line is still a high vibrational point? 

We know one thing for sure: SATURN CHANGED SIGNS. Saturn went from Sagittarius to Capricorn. And Saturn is no longer squaring any of my Virgo and will TRINE my Virgo.

I am still in the house but honestly I have felt: I can move now if I want. And I have felt: I can stay. And I have felt: it’s okay. I love you, house, no matter what challenges arise. I feel more “settled” even though it’s not *my* house. After all this time, I’m finally there. It’s mine and not mine.

I think it’s an interesting set of questions and they don’t need ONE definitive answer.

Your LIFE will tell you what the answer is. Pay attention. You’ll know. 

FOR SURE the squares to my Virgo stuff are over. For sure Saturn is in Capricorn which is harmonious and “at home.”

And for sure I am suddenly literally suddenly thinking about: home and where do I belong and roots MORE than before. Where do I live? What kind of place? How does a self-employed astrologer purchase property? Do I want to? What to do? ALL such questions.

Saturn through my 4th… was TOO HARD to face those questions. I was too busy SURVIVING.

And now? It’s just not as painful. Not perfect, but not as painful.

As for what Saturn in my 5th might feel like, well, I don’t have kids (5th) but I am a creator and so maybe I’ve got one foot in one world and one foot in the next (4th and 5th) and it may be a similar situation for you. My book comes out this year. 2019 could bring new interesting 5th House stuff!

Where’s your transiting Saturn these days?

GoFundMe one of my Patrons suggested I start a GoFundMe to raise money for my equipment upgrade. New Mac + camera! Why? Little movies, beautiful things that I want to make for you – metaphysical topics, astrology, tarot, vlogs. I probably will do more forecast-type stuff, but my goal is to make these videos as an artist and poet too!

Patreon $1 monthly pledge gets you access to my private Patron-only feed! I have a couple higher tiers as well!

2018: What Will Be? Have You Checked Your Chart + This Week’s Tarot Holiday Special!

The Little Book of Saturn

The earth feels slow and quiet to me these days. Came on all of a sudden.

Mercury goes retrograde early December at the end of Sagittarius.
Neptune goes Direct on Wednesday.
Sagittarius Season, which starts tonight, begins on my IC, the bottom of my chart.

Where I live it’s the dark time of year, even in sunny Florida.

How are you feeling?

"moon conjunct pluto"

I don’t want to use THOSE words and yet I want to use those words. Feeling a bit (here it comes) UNMOTIVATED or directionless or adrift???? although I’ve been busy with clients and enjoying it. DEEP TALK.

Still, I’m looking forward to a couple days off for Thanksgiving. I promise to draw cards only for myself!


2018. What will be?
What will it bring you?
What was 2017 about vs 2016?

What do you know about 2018 from your upcoming transits or Solar (or other) Returns?

Yesterday I did a Mars Return for someone and it was super fun! I’d never paid them much attention but yes I think they matter! All the charts matter. All the charts are keys and clues. That said, the Mars Return really is “just the transits” of the moment (transits matter!) but with a new Ascendent (and other angles and the Houses). That Ascendent matters!

"venus in scorpio"

Gonna ask it again!! What are you thinking? What are you feeling?

Here is a link to the latest newsletter (sent it out yesterday) and the newsletter has some holiday reflections AND the TWO TAROT HOLIDAY SPECIALS FOR THIS WEEK.

I will be running different specials each week until January 1st, 2018! I have room this Friday actually if you want to book (I am reserving this day for Holiday Tarot folks!)

And here are three ways, yes three, to pre-order my book! Comes out in June!
