Celestial Events – Sun Conjunct Saturn in Virgo

As I write, the Sun is standing on Saturn’s toes and giving him a chaste peck on the cheek under the sign on Virgo. This is an excellent day to work on yourself, a time to look at anything which is holding you back; let’s get down to detail here!

In the harsh light of day, the Sun illuminates those fears which, whilst they might not be overwhelming, nevertheless hold you back. Saturn is about boundaries and Virgo is about service. It might be a good time to re-evaluate the give and take in your relationships both at work and at home. This isn’t a time of making sweeping changes, simply step back and look at where you have drawn the boundary lines with people. Have you drawn them so far that you won’t let anyone in to help or drawn them so close that you are tripping over them every time you turn? Hard work is associated with this configuration so it’s time to get down to it for the next few days. Look to your natal chart to see which house the conjunction falls in and this will give you an idea of where to focus your energies. By Saturday the Sun moves off to play so tie up loose ends by then.

Despite the preponderance of fire in my own chart, I have Saturn conjunct the MC which I experience as being very aware of time and its passing. I’m never late and I don’t tolerate it in others either. I often feel like days spin by very swiftly and that I don’t have anywhere near enough time to do everything I want to do. Oddly today I have found myself feeling a lot more relaxed about this and even took an hour out to sleep as I was particularly tired – something I hardly ever do! This links to the Saturn/Sun conjunction being placed in my second house which encourages me to value myself more. In this case, in order to be of value (2nd house) to serve others (Virgo), I needed to take some time (Saturn) for myself (Sun).

If you are one of those people who feel like they are always running but never getting a great deal done, this is a really good period to keep a diary of how you spend your time. Doing this for a few days can be very enlightening. Sometimes we aren’t consciously aware of how much time we bleed on the phone, online, watching tv, waiting, travelling and so on. Once you have a better idea of how you’re spending your time, you can then start to analyse (Virgo) whether or not those activities are worth your time.

In the meantime, I’m off to take a look at where the next interesting configuration of the month falls in my chart – Mars conjunct Venus. Mmmm smoochies 🙂
