Neptune Square or Opposite Saturn
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Neptune square or opposite your natal Saturn. This is a time when the structures of your life are collapsing, and what you have come to rely upon becomes unreliable. Authority lacks certainty and the chain of command becomes labyrinthine. Most people's reaction to this is to become fearful and anxious. In fact, because Saturn represents agnoia (the lack of knowing), this transit represents one of the most primal fears of all - the fear of the unknown (Neptune represents avoidance). You are likely to feel disoriented until these changes subside.
If Saturn is lord of your 1st house, you are probably in the midst of an identity crisis now, especially if you were born at night. There is a tendency to not be aware of who one is. Rarely, one might literally not know who they are as the result of amnesia. You may not feel too sure of yourself.
If lord of the 2nd, you are prone to misplace things and lack good financial planning and accounting now. There is lack of certainty regarding money matters.
If lord of the 3rd, often it is a time of isolation and solitude. Depression my be hard to ward off. You may feel disoriented while running errands around town.
If lord of the 4th, your supports may be shaky now and your personal life in disarray. The foundation for your life may be crumbing around you and you may have to lay a new foundation.
If lord of the 5th, this is not a good time for speculation or investments. You may get nothing in return. Love is often not returned.
If lord of the 6th, a chronic illness may leave you vulnerable. If you have problems now, it is likely to be with bones, teeth or joints. You may be on disability for a while or be unable to work for extended periods of time.
If lord of the 7th, your partner may disappoint you in a profound way during this period. You may not see your mate for who he/she really is.
If lord of the 8th, be careful to do your taxes accurately or you may be subject to audit. Financial partnerships prove unproductive or dammaging to your credit.
If lord of the 9th, you will go through a profound change in your beliefs during this period. Much of what you thought was true about the world turns out to be false.
If lord of the 10th, be careful about your reputation now and how others perceive you. You may be set up for a fall or disgrace. Career success may have little meaning for you now and you may wish to retire or resign.
If lord of the 11th, you social circle will probably widen now as you come into contact with many different kinds of people you wouldn't have before. Your friends may disappoint you.
