Saturn will ingress into Capricorn in one week. It’s at this point we graduate Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius; aka our higher education. I’ve been thinking about where I fit in this new real world. Or rather, the information has been coming to me.
A few months ago, my teenage son added me to his snapchat. His friends also added me, as did his girlfriend. These are college students. I know this window into his life is a privilege.
My son has met this great girl. Having met my husband when I was seventeen, I believe that young love can be real love. I would bet on this couple having a future, without hesitation. This gives me a lot of joy, but I know that it is their life.
They’re together. They’ve got to stay together, and plan their life, their family and their careers. I am outside this. I can root for them and that’s it.
Saturn is transiting my 12th house; the house that’s known to be a prison. This situation with my son provides an example of the restriction but there are countless other ways this is playing.
I don’t fit well in the social media culture.A person’s “story” is told in pictures. On one level, a picture really is worth one thousand words, but the picture stream is also profoundly superficial. I see you went here, here, here and here and you ate certain things or it was raining, but what’s that tell me about you, really? Virtually nothing.
I’m a person who shared deeply intimate, true stories, online for years…for more than a decade. Things have really changed. Hi, bye! This is how people interact now.
I accept this. I have to accept it but it doesn’t interest me in the least. How could it? I have a packed 8th house. You come through with your one-inch-thickness and what am I supposed to do? Admire your veneer?
I’m not sure how cut and paste memes took over the world. I am sure I’m going to be spending a lot of time alone over the next couple years. Because there is another thing I don’t feel a part of…
I don’t like the anger out there…out there in the world. Having Libra, I’ve always been sensitive to strife. I made this agonizing video in 2010 with Saturn in Libra – Libra Struggles…
Seven years later, I give up.
If you need actual, real (Saturn) help or service (12th), I will be there. Otherwise, I’m going to walk by like a wisp.
All around me, I can see people with a job a do.
My son and his girl and his friends have to finish college.
Another young couple we know had their first baby yesterday.
I know an older woman having to deal with her husband’s illness.
Another woman I know will be getting married soon – she’s nearly sixty.
