Get Your Saturn Off My Sun!
MORNING LECTURE: Introduction
AFTERNOON WORKSHOP: Into more depth, looking specifically at how Saturn functions in relationship over time, why it so present in synastry. Plus other difficult synastry combinations and why we attract them.
Why is it that we so often attract partners who have traditionally difficult astrological contacts with our personal planets? After the fun and romance, after the classical attraction of Venus and Sun and Ascendant, after the cosiness of the Moon, the real work of relationship begins.
We will explore the unconscious contract in relationship, the less obvious patterns that are often under the surface. Our experience of planets in synastry changes over time, especially with Saturn. Neptune softens and charms, giving the sense of something enchanting just out of reach. Pluto and Mars are necessary for passion, but can lead to conflict and power struggles, to a semi-permanent state of war.
Each planet, no matter how troublesome, has something to offer. And each person we meet, especially those we love, will wake something in our own chart, will call to us in a particular way. We may feel empowered or chastened, inspired or crushed, dazzled or disappointed. If we are willing to stay with it, to claim the energy woken up inside, the most difficult contacts may being the greatest rewards. How do we work with planets in synastry over time? How do we find the hidden treasure in relationship?
