In the movie Tommy Boy, Chris Farley plays a character who has lived an extended adolescence and faced with a crisis in his family and the family business is forced to grow up quickly. Spending years in college in a fraternity atmosphere he has become a “big fish in a little pond.” He has resisted the external pressure (Saturn) to grow up (more Saturn). Eventually he is squeezed (Saturn) out of the position that is no longer working for him.
He finds himself surrounded by Saturn figures that force him to grow up. Heaven help you if David Spade is one of your Saturn figures. He tries to work his big fish little pond charm on David Spade when he puts on Spade’s suit coat and says, “Fat guy in a little coat, fat guy in a little coat.” His gag falls flat when the coat splits across the back and Spade retorts in frustration, “Take it off, dickhead, I’m serious.”
Saturn transiting our charts presents the opportunity to get serious, grow up and mature. If we don’t follow the energy and progress it will create stricture in the areas it affects essentially pushing us into maturity. It is certainly possible to resist this change but the more you do, the more it compresses.
The house where Saturn transits shows the area where this energy is present and its aspects to points or planets in our charts present more clues as to how this can be done.
