Saturn’s Test: Astrological squares in aspect — How to overcome them and get on with it.
|October 16, 2010||Filled under Life, Astrology, Aspects|
In astrology there are various energies (aspects) that occur when planets and points connect (at particular degrees, angles). It’s the “Hey, I see you and I’m now deciding on what I’m going to do with you”. One of these aspects is called a Square.
What’s the meaning of all this?
When we think of a square, what comes to mind? Perhaps hard edges, enclosed, straight and narrow, balanced, equal, flat, lifeless, stationary, professional, covering, etc.
And for some reason, a square visualizes into a cube for me so if that’s the case for you too, what comes to mind? Perhaps a box, containment, a holding vessel, a stepping stool, an obstacle, heaviness, etc.
Sometimes a square is there to keep us safe, protect us and we are NOT meant to engage the aspect without a solid idea on how it will impact other aspects and a game plan to deal with the outcome of removing the obstacle; however, most other times squares are there to challenge us. We are supposed to remove them and they will ofer up something special if we do.
Could you see squares as opportunities to help you get to a higher place and to become a winner? That squares can compel us to achieve greatness? To me, a square says that we have loads to offer the world and others if the ego would just get over itself.
You are NOT at the mercy of your square. A square is a rite of passage. Have you / can you come of age?
Imagine a square is like a sci-fi portal. There are two very different sides and all you have to do is be brave, take a deep breath, do something completely different, and walk to the other side. And because it’s different over there, learning the language and customs quickly of the other is important for survival.
Just like life, everyone has a boss and it’s no different for the square. To me, the planet Saturn seems to be the most likely match as the ruler of the square. While Saturn can be quite the serious chap, he can also be the trickster too.
When I think of Saturn (mascot, goat), I think of being tested to see if I’m worthy of the gifts that the old man will bestow upon me should I pass. I think of a challenging momentum and not to give up, even in the face of adversity, in order to achieve success. I see Saturn as moving cautiously, slowly but with purpose.
Let’s face it!
I see the square causing fear because the other side is unknown, doesn’t feel comfortable, not what used to, often not traditional at first glance, and possibly taboo or lacking civility in some way. In the face of a square, some people give up and say, “It’s just the way it is and I can’t do anything about it.” However, once we overcome our fears, get out of our comfort zone, see what the other side has to offer, and discuss / negotiate options, we can achieve all the power and abundance Saturn wants to give us. Until then Saturn challenges us to make the unknown known, the unconventional normal, the uncomfortable comfortable, the unworkable workable…
What tools and strategies will you employ to pass Saturn’s Test? A hammer? Invisibility? Pretend the square isn’t there and just slide on pass? Crawl over, around? Lobby Saturn to change the test format? Say to Saturn, “Hey, Can you please move that square for me? Thanks!”.
Laugh in the face of the square and after you pass Saturn’s Test remember to say, “The joke’s on you!”.
