After having focused for a long time on production, finding one's selfworth and money, Saturn will enter Gemini August 10 and change the "Zeitgeist". Saturn will retrograde into Taurus again though, from Mid October onwards to move forward into Gemini for definite starting with the Spring next year. Saturn structures, Gemini is communication. Saturn regulates, and gives form, Gemini is transportation, mobility. The theme's of the next couple of years are clear: transport of goods and people, as well as from messages (email, post, telephone) will be structured more and more in the coming years.
Interestingly enough Saturn was in Gemini also in the middle years of WOII: were communication between people was halted (Saturn). In the sense of being told from outside (the Authorities) what, when and how one can move about and speak, Saturn is always a lousy energy. However, in the inner world, Saturn is our inner authority, our inner guide. It may present the world with somewhat more serious thought and communication beyond the present tendency of just chatting nonsense over GSM telephones. And we may find something we desperately need, be it in a different way than in WOII (and it will be a different way of course), and that is silence. In this world of internet, GSM telephones and more and more busyness, we desperately need the balance of the inner silence and inner truth.
On the spiritual path the only Saturn that works out properly is a Saturn where one takes responsibility for oneself, and in this sense we may find new ways to somehow restructure and even close off our continuous availability because of outside pressures to do so in all the communication and restructure from within to figure out what is really worthwhile and what is not. Actually, the outer pressures communicatively speaking (appointments, schedules, travel) may increase for the time being, up to a point where we WILL stand still and stop and listen within. Any throat troubles or troubles with loosing one's voice temporarily in the times ahead, may actually be just a signal for this! Advertising, uncalled for email, will be less and less popular up to the point where the spam messages are already starting to selfregulate this system by asking permission for sending emails - (which is the only way to deal with Saturn). The point is: create your own borders, without damaging other people or blaming them, and don't allow the outside world to need to do that for you.
