The destiny of each individual human being is inscribed onto the heavenly vault.
Many spiritual and religious beliefs, whole systems of beliefs, are based upon this idea. Astrology shares this inspiring and intriguing idea; that all of our lives are hidden in the stars, waiting for us to live them, as well as interpret them.
We should interpret them, in order to actually live well and use all of our capacities, the best we can.
No one can interpret the mystery of the skies in total. Astrology strives to reveal secrets of the magical and beautiful starry sky and it has been doing so since ages ago. Astrology is very old, although modern Western astrology gained its popularity lately. Its roots are, however, ancient.
It is not known when this amazing discipline was born, but research findings indicate a period thousands of years ago.
This Western astrology comes from old Persia and it was introduced to the Western world by Greeks and Romans. Although it is officially not acknowledged as a ‘real’ science, but as a pseudo science, it is very important to note that astrology has all the principles, methods and is based on genuine knowledge, just as any other scientific discipline we know and appreciate.
This is a rich and complex ‘science’, so we focus on one of astrology branches that is natal astrology. Natal astrology is personalized astrological analysis. Its main goal is accurately and thoroughly to analyze and interpret an individual’s birth chart.
Birth chart is basically like a photograph of sky, at the time a person came to the world for the first time. Each birth chart is unique and complex. It is like a tangled woolen ball an astrologer has to break and carefully sort out. A natal chart features many important elements, in all sorts of relations one with another. All of them have to be deciphered and understood.
A birth chart hides valuable guidelines- they are of a great importance, because they give you much better insight into who you are.
An astrologer plays a major role in interpretation of a birth chart. One has to be familiar with all principles and methodology of astrology and to possess rich knowledge about all of the elements of an astrological analysis, such as planets and zodiac signs, for example. It takes time and a lot of practice to become a brilliant astrologer.
This makes astrology similar to art. A birth chart is not only your destiny written in the stars, but also a masterpiece of an astrologer. He or she sorts out your confusing destiny, thread by thread and analyzes the meaning of each. It takes time, dedication and effort.
An astrologer is an artist and a medium of the mysterious world of distant planets and constellations.
Saturn and Horoscope
Planets are an incredibly important element of your natal chart. Their positions at the time you came to this world affect who you are as a person and mould up your destiny. Planets are associated with mysterious, almost divine forces. In ancient times, they were related to deities and in modern astrology, their meanings are the same.
Symbolism and energy of a particular deity is thought about as an archetype.
Today we talk about one particularly interesting planet and that is Saturn. Saturn is somewhat a notorious guest in a birth chart, since it is associated with restrictions and limitations. It is one of the two so-called social planets, besides Jupiter.
Saturn in a horoscope represents our destiny, our karma and everything we could hardly change. It teaches us patience, perseverance, persistence and boundaries.
Saturn is also related to all sorts of hardships, including both physical and mental suffering. It is associated with seriousness, discipline, duty and responsibility. Its main purpose is good; it is to help us mature, to think rationally, to control our urges, to act wisely and to put limits.
However, the way Saturn acts might not please us at all and we could see it as cruel and very troubling.
It puts us on trials and places us in from of challenges. Saturn is determined to teach you the importance of order, discipline and effort the harder or the easier way. It greatly depends on other aspects what channel would Saturn choose and how well would we bear it.
Saturn is not loved by many; it is even said that it could shrink or make less attractive a part of the body, depending of its place in a natal chart.
Some astrologers even call it an evil planet and they believe Saturn is always malevolent, even in good aspects. It is said that Saturn brings depression, melancholy, loneliness, hatred, even chronic physical illnesses and long lasting problems of all sorts. It rules our old age, the last stadium of our physical life.
Saturn people have impressive stamina and they are persistent, although they do not necessarily appear so.
Saturn is associated with one’s sense of reality, order and discipline. It awakens our sense of responsibility and makes us serious. It brings us incredible energy, but usually at the cost of something else. Saturn could help you reach heights, but only through true efforts.
There is nothing easy about Saturn, so it is very important to know where it is placed in your birth chart.
It is not, of course, all that bad with Saturn. It could help you overcome your greatest fears, the ones that are usually rooted deep within yourself. It could make you realize your limitations and help you use your capacities to the maximum.
The placement of Saturn in a natal chart also affects the way you are going to communicate and make bonds with the people in your environment.
