A lot of people are hitting a wall right now. I was talking to a friend who has a lot of Capricorn in her chart. We have this in common.
“You’re not going to win every hand,” I said, recalling what I learned, playing cards when I was young. “If you have that expectation, you’re going to be disappointed because it’s just not how life works…”
We agreed that a lot of people don’t understand this. They truly think, things should break their way, every time.
If you’re struggling with this, I hope the card-playing analogy helps you put things in perspective. If you’re suffering and/or need additional help, try this: Saturn In Capricorn – Let’s Get Real.
Because what goes up, does come down. The longer it takes you to learn this, the harder the lesson!
I’ve been hitting the wall since 2009. I’d like to catch a break before I’m dead.
So sorry to hear KaD. My wishes are with you. God bless you. By the way, whenever I am down and everything seems falling apart I go back to this book (I must have read it hundreds of times). It lifts me up and has played important part in changing my life positively. Kindly try this book “The game of life & how to play it” by Florence Scovel-Shinn.
I hear you. I’m in there too. I don’t know you, but I am sending Love your way, hugs that feel good, and things that bring you comfort ~ be it good food, great movies, books, music ~ whatever. I send you Joy, and the “miracles” of things that just go surprisingly right, in the most unexpected ways. LOVE.
These days I’m on top and it has actually had me worried because I know that’s true- what goes up must come down. These days I’m truly flying high though. I got accepted at a very selective grad school which I’m thrilled about and I’m like- what is going to ruin this opportunity for me? Lol. I’m trying to tame my excitement- it seems like anytime something good has happened to me in my life, it gets taken away very fast.
don’t fear Lasirena. If you fear it may be taken away, you are setting the vibrations of that effect in motion. Fearlessly believe you deserve even much more joy, than what you are feeling right now.
Thank you. Its interesting because Saturn and Uranus are trine throughout the year and Saturn is about fear and limitation and caution, whereas Uranus is the unexpected and sometimes shocks, as well as excitement. The dance they’re doing describes perfectly what it means that “what goes up must come down.” Its like Saturn is looking at Uranus like – don’t get too excited. And Uranus is looking at Saturn saying – I can take away your hard work in a flash!
Anyway… Uranus is conj my Venus H9- higher education- with Saturn trining.
I can feel it so much. But I think on the contrary- I need to tame my excitement. I have had my excitement blow up in my face too many times.
I need to listen to Saturn this time.
Wow.. You are right in watching out for Saturn . This trine seems perfect H9 transit for your higher education. I hope Saturn doesn’t spoil your party.. 🙂
Saturn is conjunct my Midheaven right now, and apparently is going to go over it again, and hang there for quite some time. I feel like I am slowly dying. Uranus is square my Sun, and so on and so forth. Last week I got stung by some insect I didn’t see on my leg, twice, as I picked up a plant at Lowe’s. It’s turned blue and is getting worse. Went to the clinic, and found out I also have an infected torn ear drum, severe sinus infection, infected tonsils, abscessed wisdom tooth, and am now on antibiotics. This kind of stuff has been going on for years, and I’m almost deaf now. It’s exhausting and depressing. I dread 2020 when the stellium opposes my Sun. Ugh.
@Melinda, I will pray for you.
Always reach for the light.
THANK YOU, SOOO MUCH! I looked at my chart again and realized that Venus Rx and Chiron are conjunct both sides of my ASC, and all of these transits, including Saturn are hitting my Mars and Pluto in my 6th house, HARD. Explains a lot. So, THANK YOU AGAIN for your prayers. I’m trying to sit still. I’m venturing out later today to go stock up on soup and pot pies, because they are soft, and my abscessed tooth may be coming out tomorrow. Yaaaay :} I just want to lay down and sleep….and sleep. I miss my son and grand babies so much. Thank you for your prayers. That is so kind of you.
I’ve had that just wanting to sleep thing….and just not Be Here Now….try to keep strong – it will pass – “all things must pass…” – thinking of you. :}
Thank you, 10,000 Daydreams and car8Rye. I went back to the clinic yesterday. I may be getting free hearing aides. I am letting “hope” hang out with me about this. None of the infections have cleared up, so now the Dr has me on harder antibiotics for 10 more days. The dental people are real “go for its” and wanted to pull the tooth yesterday, but I ended up saying no because the infection is all over me. So, for now I’m going to meditate, trust, and go deep within to heal. I can FEEL your prayers and good thoughts for me. I send them back around to you with hugs and a lot of thankful Love. I’m going to find George Harrison’s “All things must pass” on youtube, and listen to it. Thanks you guys. I learned something fascinating today…lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu. Check it out on Gaia. I just keep saying it over and over. Thank goodness for Elsa and her blog. In her way she’s healing us all ~ touching our lives in such meaningful, powerful ways, bringing so many people of like mind together. We should all say prayers sending healing love to her. She does more for people than I think she realizes. _/|\_
Thank you for this – I’ve spent all my life feeling “different” and not quite fitting in inside ( despite doing all the “right” things at the “right” times – Education, Marriage, “Getting On” etc – but finding this Site and all the amazing people who are part of it was the first time I really felt I was listening to people I could relate to – I hope Going Deep inside heals and helps – can you tell I’ve had Pluto transiting my 4th House for a Very Long Time now…!! :}
Yeah. You can’t win them all, and you just need to prioritize and anyone who expects that you’re perfect all the time, doesn’t have their facts straight yet. They are still torturing themselves. It’s better to prioritize with whatever you’ve got. As a coworker explained, this job has a learning curve. You just gotta be willing to learn and learn some more.
Great point. People get to thinking they know it all or even that they know enough. Invariably, they’re wrong. And clear see off to learning which is tragic.
You hit a wall… go back, try something else. It’s okay really. Someone wise explained, each teacher is going to have particular strengths… and particular weaknesses, but they going specialize and have their own style. They might teach one aspect especially well, and the rest still needs to be figured out. Same as people in general. Sometimes you get lucky with a slanted wall or a ladder, sometimes you just can’t go past it.
That sounds so Saturn.
I’ve hit walls my entire life at almost every direction with Saturn conjunct Moon and squaring Sun /Mars/Mercury/Jupiter in fixed signs. i can’t imagine living life expecting to win at everything. That’s crazy talk.
Me too – Saturn exactly conjunct Moon, and conjunct Sun; square Pluto.
Whoa, car8Rye. OUCH. BIG long hug, deep breath, exhale, compassion, kindred smile. Man, it’s as though you sat down before you were born, and planned your chart/life to take on ALL the karma from past lives in one big bundle in this one. If I were the Great Master’s I’d give you a “get out of jail free” card, all the money you get when you land on “go” and Joy! Sending you Love.
All that to you too – :}}}
Often the wall is internal.
Yet people keep trying to get others to take down their walls instead.
It’s much easier to take your own one down, or at least put a door in it!
Agreed…and install a few windows too while we’re at it, in case we can’t get out right away, at least we can see what’s going on.
Yeah, pretty strange that some people think everything should go their way, all the time. I guess you could call them optimists. Then there is optimism & optimism, how to be a realist optimist? I tend to be on the cautious side, but that doesn’t exclude a bit daydreaming, knowing very well none of it can ever happen. A little fiction, I guess, to get out of the real thing.
I agree with BlueMagoo’s comment “Often the wall is internal”. People can get in their own way, for strange reasons.
And so true what Elsa says, the reality descending with Saturn in Sadge. Sometimes the reality is so big you don’t even see it! I’m suddenly surprisd by something I didn’t see coming at all, although terribly obvious. Boy, blind as a bat!
If there are walls, you look for other directions. If there are none, you stand still. Is anything changing, slowly? There must be something. There must be some way to go, something to do. What is it?
What a great, simple instruction. Too often, people hit a wall, fall down and don’t get up!
Thank you, Elsa. It’s just my way of managing my own life situation right now. My relationship ended/hit THE wall and my system got shocked. Who knows, perhaps Sat crossed my 7th house Nep@Sadge or something. I returned to my family home and now I have to rebuild myself. All I can do is go through everyday motions and wait… give myself (Saturn) time.

Hm, your comment reminds me of some story ideas I have – of people being abducted for top secret cutting edge military type scenarios.
One of which is putting a person in a room that appears utterly real, as if they are walled off in some prison, but it’s entirely an illusion.
How long would it take for them to realize this? Would they ever…?
I have Uranus in the 7th house. I’ve really come to realize the scary truth of projections: whether onto oneself or projected onto others, or reality in general.
It’s true it won’t always go your way. You can’t let disappointment get in the way of trying something else. Actually, it would drive me nuts to give up. Think of a new plan and give it a whirl. I can have moments of severe disappointment or disillusionment, but it doesn’t last. I use it to push me to think of a solution. Maybe I’m even fooling myself sometimes, but it’s better than crumbling.
Our two dogs have died within weeks of each other and there was nothing we could do to save either, the house definetly won. I’m devestated and our home is an empty shell, the last death has been so hard. I’ve been trying to lose weight for ages and nothing worked but now food is about as much interest to me as cardboard, and yes I’ve dropped half a stone in a week, the irony isn’t lost on me. Chiron is in my 6th, saturn my 3rd and both are squaring my natal ascendant and my moon/saturn conjunction. Mars is also playing with my natal Taurus chiron in the 8th, and pluto is in my 4th. Hard lessons, but it has made me realize there are no guarantees, not even for the next second.
You have very similar configuration to me there – it’s been a very hard Journey so far, but I have learned an awful lot – especially since Pluto’s been going through the 4th House……don’t know that I’d want to do it again though…..!!
Oh Val, I am so sooo sorry about the loss of your 2 dogs. They are more than friends, and different/but so much like our own children. They are our partners, our mates, the ones who truly love us unconditionally. My heart goes out to you. I lost 2 dogs this past year too. It hurts forever for me. I imagine that all the dogs I’ve had and lost in my lifetime are all playing together and having fun while they wait for me. I send you Love, and the memory of wagging tails. 🙂
Have been living with this my whole life – Natal Saturn in Sadge, conjunct Sun and Moon.
Wow, that’s a heavily Saturnian chart.
Thanks Melinda. Hugs over your own loss. We’ve no dogs now and it is so strange.
Car8rye, I’ve learnt an awful lot too, some of it has been awful and some has been transformative. And no I wouldn’t want to live through it again.
It’s funny – it’s almost as if we have to live our lives backwards or something for them to make sense….must be the perspective thing – it’s like the longer you live , the higher up you climb, so that you’re getting to see the panorama, and then it starts to make more sense…..you see the whole thing the further away you get from it…or am I rambling…?!
