Saturn is heading towards opposition to my Mercury and I am sick of mind control.

I get it–staying in and isolating from others is the safest option right now. I’m not disputing that (though there is a lot of preachiness around that too).

What I am sick of is people who think they are entitled to tell other people what to do with their time, and how they should be processing and dealing with this period.

I get that this is a capitalist and Instagrammy/show-off society and everyone is obsessed with being productive and perfect. But God forbid I want to take some time to just think and rest and get through this. No, everyone is talking about developing skills and getting things done while stuck at home.

Do whatever helps you deal, but FUCK the preachiness. Honestly. We don’t all have to be machines perfecting ourselves 24/7.

I’m not even saying that I won’t work on anything, but I can’t get excited about making these kinds of choices when it feels forced.

I think many people are just afraid to sit with themselves, honestly and that manifests as hyper productiveness. These are often young souls too that are obsessed with “improvement and efficiency” and I think you might be an older soul spacecadet.

I hadn’t thought of it like that but it makes sense! And it helps me realize this transit may be about freeing my mind from the chains of collective beliefs generated by fear (Transit Saturn is in 9th, natal Mercury in 3rd).

Do whatever you want and don’t apologize for your behavior. Hard Saturn aspects, like yours, are like having an inner critic. It lays a guilt complex on you. You must always be achieving and utilizing your time to the max according to the Saturn demand for perfection. Don’t let it control you. You are the captain of the ship.

Now is the perfect time to think and rest and just get in touch with your inner self more. Relax and refresh. People that are always doing never take the time for self-reflection and that is to their detriment. The more you know and learn about yourself, the more successful person you will become. Find your inner peace. Meditate. Enjoy nature. There will be plenty of time later to get back in the swing of things.  This is a unique time to focus on inner work.

Thanks for the encouragement! Yes, inner work definitely feels best right now. And I will make sure to spend time out in nature this weekend.

I agree. “Lay not your treasures upon where moth and dust doth corrupt” Matthew.

Ironically, I quoted a bible verse, but I’m not trying to be preachy.

You mentioned working on you inner being. This is the perfect time. Well, it’s always the perfect time lol.

I’ve been hiking a few times a week now. Going tomorrow in fact.

My professor was berated for playing disc hockey, or whatever it’s called, with her cohorts, in public, for not staying home.

I was berated at a grocery store for not adhering to “social distancing”, and she virtue signaled her ass off. I wasn’t impressed. My words fell upon deaf ears. (It’s funny because only when you get to the cashier do you have to adhere to this rule, otherwise you can be grabbing oranges with another, shoulder to shoulder).

I see it like this: isn’t everyone taking a risk just by breathing, driving, eating etc.? I’m sick of all the didactic blabbering too.

It’s weird that people think they’re in a position to tell people how to live their lives… when no one asked them!

Saturn/Pluto, Saturn the authority. Do this, don’t do this. You’re not good enough unless you do xyz. An ear full of criticism, blah, blah, ah.

I was at a grocery store the other day and some outside store help were pushing their weight around. I wrote corporate a letter. A little authority and some are off and running w/ it.
