I spent a good amount of time analyzing the moon these past two days, and I’ve come to this conclusion:
Saturn is “Old Father Time,” astrology has given him the responsibility to restrict and limit through time, but..what about the moon?
Because of the moon, we focus on not only time but cycles of time as well. When the moon is full, think about it as a woman (because we equate man with the sun) who’s looking at you. And every night she turns a little bit until her back is facing us-that’s the new moon.
Therefore, when we can see the moon, the moon can see us and vice versa. She doesn’t make a 180 degree about face turn all in one shot, she does it methodically; a little bit each night.
By nature, the moon teaches us about patience and the passage of time. If you wanted to buy a can of soup but the store is closed, you’ll have to wait until it reopens the next day.
All things in due time, a little at a time, and everything in moderation; that’s what we learn from the moon.
Even in the natural life cycle, you plant a seed and a process takes place. You don’t walk outside and see a full grown tree the next day.
As we make this case for the moon, you can help but reconsider the responsibilities placed on Saturn. Do we need two limiters? Two restrictors? Interestingly enough, the moon’s cycle is about 29 days and Saturn’s is about 29 years. So, there’s a lot of similarities there.
