Saturn 6

Until 1781, when Uranus was discovered, Saturn was considered the outermost planet of our solar system. It was know as Ninib to the Babylonians. The Greeks identified Saturn with their god Kronos, who identified with chronos (time) and was seen to carry a sickle-shaped sword. This is the “Father Time” that is still used today in celebrations at New Year’s Eve.

It is this “time” element that brings to Saturn the quality that some astrologers recognize as a revealer of past life information. Some call it a karmic planet feeling that both the sign it is in, at the time of birth, and the house it occupies then as well, can reveal work we came into this lifetime to do. A retrograde Saturn in a birth chart would doubly emphasize this karmic possibility as the energies are coming back at us, telling us there is work to be done.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
