Astrology In Real Life…
I have a friend who is associated with a man who finds women everywhere he goes. He finds mother substitutes, specifically and it’s just uncanny. He finds these women (or they find him) and they pretty much form a line waiting to meet this man’s needs.
There is nothing you can do about something like this outside of observe it and people do. The women don’t compete. Instead they remark to each other, “Look at how many mothers he has…” The man is in his 40′s and in whatever case I told her this story… Continue reading Astrology And Deprivation – It Has It’s Upside: Making a Case For Saturn / Capricorn

“My boyfriend has Saturn conjunct my Sun. Will he hold me back?”
He may but he may also be the best thing that ever happened to you. It’s true if someone has their Saturn in aspect to one of your planets (particularly the personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), they will have some authority over you.

Astrology-Based Advice: Devastating Young Life – Sexual Abuse, Parents Dead: Sun Conjunct Saturn In Scorpio
I have had problems in my life since as long as I can remember. My parents died when I was young, I was sexually abused as a child, I never lived in a place for more than 2 years, and I ran away at 16. However I remained a fairly happy child through all this.
Now as an adult, I’m constantly fighting fits of depression or incredible anger. One moment I’m fine, the next I’m blowing up at my husband because he pronounced a word wrong (or something else small like that). I feel like I’m never truly happy and I don’t know how it that is, now that I have everything I’ve wanted for so long (a family and security).
I also have a tendency to pretty much live in the past. I just can’t let it go. Is there something wrong with me or is it part of my destiny to suffer?
No, I don’t think it is your destiny to suffer, I think it’s your destiny to heal and beyond that to help others heal. Who better for that than you? With your vast experience of suffering you are uniquely positioned, don’t you think? I do. But let me address some of these other things.
Your experience is common for survivors of abuse. You finally get yourself to a place where you have a modicum of security and this is when the shit hits the fan. Because prior to this time, you are functioning in some sort of survival mode. Functioning highly too, something you should be proud of. But now it’s time to heal.

There’s a thread on the boards discussing the situation where a dentist vengefully extracted her ex’s teeth. It got me to thinking. I believe I know what I would do because I’ve been in a reasonably similar situation. However, the puzzle I found interesting was in trying to put together what astrological energies go into producing each individual’s reaction to such stimuli. You can never truly know what anyone will do, but you can see what they’re likely to do.

Apparently he was born to privilege so he’s never had to work. Ben said he’d done nothing all his life but look at others and feel himself superior.

This is from 2008. My husband and I were coming off years of intense difficulty, the kind you don’t even speak of.
“I wouldn’t worry about that,” I said. “We are in impossible conditions, trying to have a life. I have been in impossible conditions myself, for 9 years. The conditions were completely impossible but I still managed to have some kind of life.”

I have a friend who is cautious because whenever he tries to shirk anything, he’s typically caught and the consequences are generally severe.
I, on the other hand, get away with almost everything. When I am caught the consequences are what would be expected some of the time, but frequently they are light and even more frequently they are waived all together.
nutsy called himself “standoffish” on the Obnoxious board post and started me thinking. Most of us have some kind of defense against rejection. If you have Capricorn in your chart, this goes double. In thinking about this, I realized that my defense online is very different than my defense in real life.
“Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.”
Saturn contacts in synastry are relationship glue, attachments that hold it together. They also show restriction and pressure, restriction to the energy of the planet they aspect and pressure to learn and mature. Sometimes pressure will mold things into a more mature form and other times it crushes or pushes away. In any case it brings serious attention to whatever it touches.
