Your Week Ahead: March 15 to 21, 2020 – Preparing For Saturn

Each week, I will try to blend into the reading an astrological influence that is current and a pertinent aspect in our sky. On March 21, we have the teacher, hierophant, Lord of Time, bringer of structure, stability, authority and boundaries, entering Aquarius for the first time since 1991.

When I shuffled the deck for this reading, I made no reference in my mind to this. So it is with each reading, that I try to offer a blank slate and see how I’m led and guided into its meaning.

When we work with Saturn energy, we can have two ways of viewing things – and this approach is with the tarot, and with all things in life really. We can view energy as having external force moving toward us, or we can view it as an internal force emanating outwards from our core.

In simpler terms, either we are reacting to something coming at us, or we are leading through initiative and self expression. Notice how the first feels compressed and limiting while the latter feels expansive and foundational.

The two offer very different interpretations, often bringing our very fundamental psychological state to the surface. How we process things has very much to do with our upbringing and mental conditioning. However, it can’t be overstated that we are never without the ability to change what might have been an ongoing narrative of defeat or disempowerment.

Beliefs are created by thoughts that occur again and again. Patterns of thought and behaviour form the backbone of our reactive state of mind. Saturn’s energy usually manifests in triggering this reactivity and forces us to question who exactly is running our lives. In the questioning, we are afforded the opportunity to address it and recreate a new pattern that serves us better.

Saturn is leaving Capricorn this week and briefly enters Aquarius through to July. Let’s see how this week’s reading gives us some information about where we are in this transition.

Looming under rain drenched clouds, a heart is seen pierced by three swords. What seemed inevitable has indeed happened. A force that was brought about by an intention to be free of something has finally brought those components together for release.

Information came from multiple sources. Each source was listened to and given time for discernment. Each became integrated into a common experience that seemed to go off in tangents. How ever betrayed or let down you may be feeling, this is a moment for acceptance.

In this acceptance, you will understand the need to move on. You won’t hold on to any notions that these elements can continue to work together. It is a saturation point that is giving you time to see things as they are without needing to impose your perhaps willful solutions onto it.

As you slowly move away from the duress, perhaps brought on by last week’s Full Moon and Mercury stationing direct, you reach an understanding of where you are and what you need to do for yourself. For the moment, you need to focus and get things in order so that certain factors that were held in suspense can now brought to conclusion.

This may actually be far easier than you think. All you need is a little determination, patience, and resilience to see it through. If you can ask for some help from those who care about you, please do so. But ensure that the more meaningful aspects of your tasks are set straight by you alone. The aspect between these two cards highlights this importance.

As you move toward the weekend, things will become to feel very different. You will be relieved and restored through a wonderful healing and nourishing environment. Make a warm bath for yourself, put on some lovely music, and feel the basin of your inner sanctuary overflow with life giving energy.

Celebrate the journey you’ve been on and realize that today was once yesterday’s dream. You’ve completed something important, and more, set yourself on a trajectory and path of Love. That path will always be well lit and well guided. May you be bestowed with more than you ever thought possible.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week,

Daniel Palmo
