Gemini Saturn Forecast 2008
Saturn is one of the more powerful planets, that affects life on Earth. It is the ruler of time and structure.
Some of the older astrologers called Saturn the "Grim Reaper," because when he passes through one of your houses he swings his mighty Scythe and cuts loose useless things in your life.
But if you understand the power and function of Saturn, you will not be so down on him.
Saturn spends about 2 1/2 years in each house; and takes about 28 - 30 years to make a full circuit of your twelve houses.
The first time Saturn starts his 28 - 30 year journey around your chart, there is very little devastation. He understands that you are a young soul and allows you a lot of leeway. There is very little or no Saturnalian penalties the first time around.
But on his second trip around, he is brutal and powerful. It is called your second Saturn cycle. Now, he will enter each of your twelve houses for the second time. He will stay for 2 1/2 in each house this second time around.
The whole purpose of your life on this school planet, called Earth, is to evolve and grow conscious.
Saturn will look into each of your houses and pull out whatever you have built within your house that is detrimental to your evolution and spiritual growth. If he starts his second trip in the first house, he will force you to change everything in your personality that is detrimental to your evolution and spiritual growth. If he starts in your second house, your house of money, he will upset this.
The rest of the houses are as follows: Third house of Communication Fourth house of Home and Family Fifth house of Creativity Sixth house of Health Seventh house of Relationships Eighth house of Sex Ninth house of Higher Mind Tenth house of Career Eleventh house of Friendship Twelfth house of the Past
All these changes will start at ages 28 -30 years of age. If you are wise, you will prepare yourself for Saturn's coming. And whatever house he enters you will gladly hold it out to him to allow him to take from you what you do not need any more. Gently. Instead of ripping it out.
If you look upon Saturn, as the re-structurer, rather than a grim reaper, you will have a better understanding of him. It will also be less painful. Learn to restructure each of your houses during his visit. Work with him, not against him. Saturn knows more about what you need for your spiritual growth than you do.
In the third Saturn cycle, Saturn will start his third time through each of your houses at ages 56 -58. Now if you have not prepared for his coming, you are in serious trouble. His energy at this time is very powerful and he is in his no-nonsense mode. You would be amazed at how many people are forced to leave this planet between the ages of 55 and 60. This is because they could not handle the destructive energies of Saturn.
But this need not happen to you. There are several key ages when you will be given hints as to what you need to change to continue your spiritual climb.
At 35, (28 + 7 years) there will not be too many signs. At 42 there will be some signs in your health, wealth and relationships. Look for them and start to make changes. Age 49 is a very important stage. You will start a restructuring program. For when 56 - 58 arrives with Saturn, he will look to see what work you have done. If you have done a fairly good job, then he will glide easily through thos 2 and half years and reward you. The reward will be 28 more years added to your life. He will be back at 84 - 86. But by then you will hopefully understand how he operates and you will be working with him not against him. How long do you want to live? 112? 140? If you work with Saturn, he will bring you long life.
Now let us look at Gemini's Solar chart with Gemini in the first house we find: Virgo in the fourth house. Your fourth house is your house of home, mother and family. Saturn will pull out of your fourth house all that is detrimental to your spiritual growth.
Any areas in your home that are inharmonious to your growth will be pointed out to you during these 2 1/2 years. You will be given a chance to restructure your home and relationships with your mother and family. Any changes you need in your Home physically and structurally will be pointed out to you. Maybe even by moving to a more sound home. Childhood problems with Mom will be brought to the surface so that they can be resolved.
Ages 56 - 58, your third Saturn Cycle, you had better prepare yourself. Here you are given 7 years, 49 - 56. to prepare.There is a lot of time before hand, for you to prepare and make changes in yourself and your life. The Grand Architect of the Universe, has designed us in his image. The Creator has also given each of us a divine time table and helpers (Planets).
