Commonly speaking, astrology is usually identified with horoscope that is personalized horoscope. It is similar in practice, mostly because personalized astrology is what interests the greatest number of people in general.
Well, most of us would like to know about our own life and future and that of our closest ones, while much bigger questions and greater plans do not excite so many people.
However, it is also in our nature to wonder why everything is the way it is. That is exactly why astrology developed. People have long believed secrets of our own existence is written somewhere on the heavenly vault.
Patterns that stars, planets and other heavenly objects make have always fascinated overall humankind, from prehistoric times perhaps and definitely into our day.
There were times astrology was at its peak of popularity; today, it is transformed into terms of modern society. It is true that astrology has lost some of its power over ages, which is a direct consequence of overall change in perception of the world. We are focused solely on Western astrology and we talk in its terms.
It is important to mention that Western astrology has long and ancient past; it originates from old Persia and is old as about three thousand years. The exact date of its origin is unknown. Throughout history of civilization, astrology was praised and denied, glorified and banned, depending on current situation.
It is good to know that some of the most famous figures of the past, known for incredible knowledge, scientific mind and wisdom were astrologers or close to astrology. Astrology we follow today is not that old, but it relies on its very ancient origins. Now to return to horoscope. Horoscope means something like the ‘observance of time’.
Personal horoscope represents a lifeline of an individual human being. The basis for one’s horoscope is a birth chart. This scheme represents positions of planets and everything else at the time of one person’s birth. Academically speaking, horoscope represents an influence of macro cosmos on micro cosmos.
Astrology claims skies directly affect us as individuals. Forces of the universe shape up our personality and our destiny. This, however, does not mean what is hidden up there, in the stars, is unchangeable.
It is and it is not, at the same time. It sounds rather confusing, while it is actually simple.
What is written in the stars is not a straight and unchangeable course of events.
Saturn and Horoscope
What is actually written in the stars are potentials one has at their disposal. It means your horoscope reveals some characteristic of you as a person, pointing out your qualities, your weaknesses, your advantages and many more. It offers you a colorful palette and it is up to you, how you will use it and what will you paint. Each horoscope is a genuine piece of art.
What is this palette we talk about? For a great part, it is made up of planets. Planets have major influence over each individual’s destiny and personality. Planets possess specific energies and they affect our lives.
Five of the planets are called ‘personal planets’ and it is said they literally shape up your personality.
They are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. In astrology, the first to are considered planets. However, here we are interested in one of so-called ‘social planets’. We talk about Saturn, which is kind of a questionable planet.
Many claim Saturn brings only misfortune, misery and trouble, while it is not all that black and white. It is traditionally a troublesome planet, but it has its good sides.
In Ancient Greek mythology, Saturn is associated with one of the titans, Cronus (Cronos or Kronos), a vicious and cruel one. He mutilated his father and devoured his children, envious and frighten of their power.
These associations of astrological planets with ancient deities are incorporated in modern day astrology as archetypes. Obviously, Cronus or Saturn is not a pleasing ‘guest’ in a birth chart.
Saturn is associated with loneliness, melancholy, despair, hardship, difficulties, illness, limitations, hatred, heaviness and all of these in chronic, long-lasting form. Some astrologers associate Saturn primarily with its negative characteristic and even claim this planet always brings misfortune, even if aspects are good and favorable in general.
We say Saturn has its good sides, but it is a challenging planet, definitely. Its ways could appear cruel and merciless in your eyes and many people would think of it as an insensitive teacher.
Saturn does offer life lessons. It teaches you the importance of perseverance, persistence, caution and ambition. Saturn is associated with rational mind and with an excellent memory.
People with strong Saturn in their horoscope are usually too serious for their age, since this planet is associated with the latest stage of a human being’s life, if we could say so. It is associated with an elderly mind.
Saturn is there to guide you through life and challenge your qualities. It teaches the mature way of thinking; it makes you realize mistakes you are making and gives you a great insight into it.
