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.
