(Picture, Saturn card from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Cards’ deck)
Saturn is one of the biggest planets of our solar system.
It is the furthest planet still possible to see with the naked eye, and is known for the rings around it.
Its journey around the sun takes about 30 years, and that means that for us, as we see it from Earth, Saturn travels in an astrological sign for two and a half long years before it moves on to the next sign. So the fact that Saturn is now shifting places is quite a remarkable one, and noteworthy.
In ancient times Saturn was called by the Greeks ‘Cronus” – and was the God of TIME. And with Saturn around – things do indeed tend to take their time…
Saturn, being the last seen planet of our solar system and surrounded by frozen rings, represents natural borders, limits and constraints. But before we get all upset with Saturn slowing things down and making life a bit difficult – we must see its beautiful side. Saturn actually acts like a cell’s membrane – making sure that nothing foreign enters the cell, and also make sure that the cell won’t “leak” its contents, and therefore protecting it.
In this same manner Saturn, which I also call “Lord of Karma”, makes sure that nothing enters our lives before we are really ready for it.
Yes – we all want success, and fast! We want to find the perfect partner, perfect job… but the truth is that if we get these things before we are really ready for them, they won’t last long. And we all know the stories about the young wonder-children that have reached the top too soon, and from there life could only have gone down-hill.
Saturn makes sure that things will take their proper time, and making sure that we are well-built, stable and grown-up – before we receive our gifts and treasures. Saturn makes sure we have learned the lessons before it allows us to enter through the gate…
But it also makes sure that things that are received at the right time, after effort was made from our side – will remain stable and constant. For what Saturn builds is long lasting.
These days Saturn enters the Astrological Realm of The Gate,
And its affect will be different for each astrological tribe.
This will also be a long-lasting affect, since Saturn will stay in its current position for the next two and a half years.
The way Saturn will affect each astrological tribe:
The Lake – For those Born Between March 14 – April 12
Saturn will spend the next 2 years (till 2017) in your astrological house of Learning. Saturn brings things down to earth and encourages commitment, therefore these are going to be great years for those planning to study for a degree, or to attend any certified course of learning. This is the time for sitting down and learning in the most committed way. During this time you might find yourself going through some life lessons that will teach you the meaning of true freedom – the one that comes from within, and not relying on outer circumstances.

The Flame – For those Born Between April 13 – May 13
Saturn, Lord of Karma, is about to spend the next two years (till 2017) in your Astrological House of Spirituality. This is a special location, from which Saturn will teach you to become more committed to your spiritual journey. This is a time to be attendant to your inner voice, take time to meditate and reflect, as something in you becomes more settled spiritually. You might also find that spiritual connections that were once easy to achieve now need more time and a more fixed schedule, but this is all a part of a big step forward towards the spiritual advancement you will achieve during this time.

The Key – For those Born Between May 14 – June 14
Saturn is going to be in your Astrological House of Marriage and Relationships, from now and till 2017, and its affect is different for each kind of relationship (or lack of). For those already in a good and committed relationship – these are going to be two very settled and stable years. If you are in an instable or problematic relationship – Saturn tends to freeze things as they are. You might find it difficult to change the relationship or get out of it, but you will have the opportunity to go through the needed challenges and lessons in order to move the relationship to a more stable one. For those looking for a relationship – Saturn is definitely a problematic planet to visit the House of Love, since it makes it hard to begin new things, but you might find yourself learning very important lessons about relationships, love and commitment, and if you learn these lessons and apply them – Saturn will open its gates for you!

Giving – For those Born Between July 16 – August 15
Saturn, planet of restraints and difficulties, is now entering your Astrological House of Self-Expression.

This is a time for growing up, a time of measuring your time and using it wisely. You might find you prefer to be alone and do quiet things, maybe meditating or reflecting, and not wanting to go outside or be too expressive. This is not a bad thing! There is relaxation and grace in the ability to spend quality time with yourself and connecting to your inner core.

The Swan – For those Born Between August 16 – Sept 15
For the next two year, till 2017, Saturn’s location will affect your emotional world. This might be a time in which you feel it is more difficult to express emotions, or even difficult to connect to them and feel them. But what is happening is that it is a time for some maturing, and a time to see which emotional reactions might not fit your developed life anymore, so let these reactions softly go. This is a time to learn how to be emotionally responsible – towards yourself and towards your surroundings. This is also the time to overcome challenges and learn to become more grownup and responsible in your attitude towards your family and clan members.

This is a journey towards becoming more responsible towards your friends. But mainly this is a path through which you can become more responsible even in the way you think – in the communication between you and yourself, always remembering that what you think is the starter for the world you create for yourself… The Holistic Astrological Card to meditate upon to help you out during this period: The House of Communication, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Cards’ Deck.
Creation – For those Born Between October 17- Nov 14

Saturn has taught you many lessons during this period, and have taken you through challenges and some difficulties. but now, when Saturn is out of the way, you can feel how much you have matured during this time; how much stronger you have become, and how connected to your inner core and inner truth. From now on things are going to go much smoother and in a much easier fashion. Saturn in its current location enables you now to create your surroundings in the way that will fit “the new you”, and you have the time to do so, for it is a slow journey of two and a half years… The Holistic Astrological Card to meditate upon during this period, to reconnect to the joy and ability to do: Jupiter, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Cards’ Deck.
The Gate – For those Born Between November 15 – December 14
Saturn is now entering your Astrological Realm, and will travel there for the next two year (till 2017). Saturn is not a simple planet to have around as it makes things go slower and brings forth the lessons we have yet to learn. But this also has its importance, and therefore Saturn’s visit can become a gift. Saturn makes sure you will learn all the important lessons; it makes you stronger and more mature; it slowly builds up your charisma and your inner golden core so that nothing can tilt it. The treasures you will find, and development that you will go through during this time will forever be in your stock for the continuance of your journey.

The Dolphin – For those Born Between December 15 – January 13
Saturn’s location in your chart for the next two years (till 2017) will not have many affects that will be seen in the physical world, but it will have a subtle, inner affect upon you. This is a time to become more mature and to build an inner core. Open and loose ends need to be closed now, and this happens even in your subconscious, as things that were open can now be sealed and closed – open wounds or things from the past can now have their closure. This is also a great time for artists and people working with their imagination and inspiration – and things that were once unseen can become more tangible… The Holistic Astrological Card to meditate upon during this period: The Transcendent, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Cards’ Deck.
The Diamond – For those Born Between January 14 – February 12

This is a time where if you decide so, you can become a beacon to light the way for others, and a true teacher, by self-example The Holistic Astrological Card to meditate upon to help you out during this period: The House of Vocation, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Cards’ Deck.
