On Tunnel Times & New Year’s Resolutions & The Meaning of Saturn In Capricorn

I think it’s important to trust the tunnel times and times of fluctuation.

By tunnel times I mean all the dark emotions about our lives that we would prefer to dismiss, feelings like:

jealousy, inadequacy, self-loathing.
And to trust that we will come out of the tunnel with SOMETHING.
Something in our hands.
Maybe no one else will trust us. We have to trust ourselves. That this is how it works.

And to trust the times of fluctuation – which is exactly how it sounds – that we are rising and resting. And the cycle may be uneven, not perfect, unpredictable.

I am OBSESSED with New Year’s resolutions and I have been searching searching searching searching for mine and I found ONE and then I found another! And it took a while. Like finding coins on the sidewalk. SO OBSESSED I told my Starbucks barista. Sometimes I trusted the process and sometimes I didn’t. I had to flail around in the tunnel. I had to not see. I had to not know. 

And out of that dark place I went to Publix. Where shopping is a pleasure. And I bought the stuff I needed to rest today (under the weather but needed some supplies) AND I bought a notebook so I could write down Resolution no. 1 and Resolution 2 and all attendant details. I wasn’t ready before. I am ready now. Trust the process. Trust you will be ready IF IT IS RIGHT.

And I was watching a YouTuber that I like a lot from the strength-training world (by the way, I was not injured for as long as I thought I might be) and he talked about SETBACKS. They are inevitable. Call it Tunnel Time. Call it Dark Night of the Soul. There are always “setbacks.” We must balance intensity with rest. We must balance effort with recovery and what may appear ugly or stupid to others. They may abandon us when we lose sight of goals. When we flail. Let them go.

LET THEM GO.

Saturn is changing signs THIS MONTH, from Sagittarius to Capricorn. Saturn will remain in Capricorn about three years. This is the perfect amount of time. TO BUILD.

In plain English: Saturn changes signs and we have to change the way we WORK, The way. The how. The why. Maybe even the where and the who. The bones of our work, our life work.

If Saturn in Sagittarius brought us a philosophical crisis and quest, Saturn in Capricorn ushers in a three-year era of PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FOUNDATION, the bricks of your life, the bottom, the bones, the structure of your life. Saturn rules the bones.

Of what will you become an expert. The only impediment is yourself says Saturn in Capricorn. Will you wise up? Will you rise to the occasion? Will you DO THE WORK. Will you face the fear?

WILL YOU FACE THE FEAR?
