Reader Rista has requested a chart analysis:

hi,  I know that I am currently going through a saturn return and I’m just wondering what I can expect from saturn’s transit into scorpio?  I have been involved in the arts more recently as well as education what do you see in those fields?

[We note that we are doing this analysis during Moon v/c with Mars Square Saturn, so we expect some changes and updates as a possibility.]

Rista has Sun in late Taurus at 29 degrees.  (Similar to, and square, the late Moon in Aquarius of Kalina.)  In Rista’s case, a pursuit of education, career, or both in art is not only advised but is “fated.”  (She will be VERY dissatisfied, long term, if she does not pursue this.)  That is the message of the last three degrees, the last one the most “fated” of all.  However, Rista does need to know that this work in art is preparing her for something else: “things Gemini.”  While she might find great satisfaction in working in sculpture, she needs to recognize that the day will come when she will wish to communicate her ideas in other ways, spoken or written communication.

Both the Sun and Chiron are late in Taurus, and each of them form a yod with Pluto / South Node.  This strengthens the importance of her interest in art and introduces a decision: should she take “the easy way out” (South Node) or “take the plunge into the abyss” (Pluto).  Yods emphasize decisions where, later, we look back and ask “what if”?  (We are never quite satisfied with our decision, later, when we face a yod choice.)  I suspect that she will be better off “taking the plunge,” but in no case will it be “easy.”

If we use asteroids, we can also argue that Rista has a grand trine in earth by sign (Moon & Astraea in Virgo, Pallas in Capricorn, and Sun, Chiron, & Mercury in Taurus).  These also confirm art (and particularly sculpture or other three dimensional art in preference to painting or drawing).  If she has not yet explored sculpture, then she needs to do so.  (And, if she has and discarded the idea, then she needs to revisit.)  We do include jewelry making and all forms of metal and woodworking in the category of “sculpture.”

She can certainly teach, and Mars in Gemini will keep that interesting.  When she has a little more experience, she might use her experiences in teaching and art to write a book.  Indeed, she should keep extensive notes specifically for this purpose.

Using the Electional Search feature of Solar Fire, I have compiled the following list of Quintile Kite periods for 2013.  In case you have not read my discussions of these elsewhere on this blog, Quintile Kites are superb periods for creative problem solving.  Whether you are an engineer, mathematician, poet, film-maker, or novelist, these should be optimal ideas for creating your best ideas.  (You should consider an “artist’s date” during this period.)

[At some later point, I may cast charts of selected periods.]

Here is the list for 2013:

Milica’s Chart

Reader Milica has requested a chart, writing the following:

I am a female taurus. I have a Pluto, Saturn and Mars in Scorpio. How would this transit affect me? Thanks

Here is her natal chart:

Milica 1-7-2013 1-12-04 AM

Milica will experience her Saturn Return this year, and given the events this summer, the experience will be a particularly powerful one for her.  She will deal with a number of emotional issues.  If she is married she may divorce, and if she is single she might marry.  Having a child is also possibility.  These are all things that often happen with the first saturn return, as well as subsequent ones.

Her Sun and Moon are bi-quintile, and that aspect can provide genius.  We are guessing that, given her taurus sun her predilection is music or sculpture but it might be another field, such as finance.  Moon is near Uranus (conjunct if you use loose orbs) and that confirms that she either is very bright or could be.  Unfortunately, the South Node is nearby, and that means that she probably only sticks with things she can do easily rather than a pursuit of magnifying her strengths into what they could be.  The Saturn Return may bring her an awareness of this genius if it is currently dormant.

Saturn has touched her natal Pluto recently, and “things have been difficult.”  She may have experienced a death in the family.  Saturn is active in the eighth house, and she is likely dealing with death, taxes, power struggles, or a mix of all three.  She may have come into an inheritance or may be in line to do so within the next year or two.

Mars opposite Venus leaves her as being rather sexy, likely physically attractive, to potential suitors.  But, if she is available, she must choose wisely.  Venus, Sun, and Chiron, by sign, oppose Mars & Saturn, by sign.  This leaves her with an ongoing series of struggles and can sometimes make decision making very difficult.  Failure to decide, of course, is also a decision.  Any potential suitor must be able to “live with this,” and see her as she is, rather than as merely a sex object.  And, more than a few suitors may be intimidated by her creative intelligence and, effectively, coerce her to hide or dampen the abilities that are her birthright.

She has Pallas in the 12th, and this is double-edged.  Sometimes she can depend too heavily on her intelligence.  If she is indeed very bright, then her trap is easy to see: she becomes dependent upon last minute preparation, and then she fails in goals that require even the brightest students to make serious preparations.  But, if she can overcome this tendency to procrastinate, then she can be a creator of elegant solutions.
