Saturn in Pisces: How is going for you?

How is Saturn in Pisces going for you? 

Altogether, it’s been a mostly positive experience for me. Not easy, but it’s making mostly supportive aspects in my chart, so it’s been more productive than crushing.

It’s going through my 6th house, so I’ve been doing the check ups and tune ups. I could be happier with my health, and I’ve been stagnant and more sedentary than usual (someone mentioned progressed moon in cancer a few weeks ago—that’s where I am!), but that’s just another thing on the list. Honestly, though I often guilt myself, this has been a period of recovery for me after years of burnout really depleted my health. My hair fell out and my brain was doing really weird things, like not working.

I’ve rested a lot. My hair is growing back, and my mind is more fluid than it’s been the last few years. I’ve dropped almost every product that I used to use, particularly for my hair. I’ve really just been trying to be more moderate in how I do things, even simple things like cleaning and drinking coffee, as I can become quite adrenalized very quickly, and it’s burnout bitchy city from there. 

My stagnation in work and career comes from this fear of not progressing, of repeating patterns that I’d like to change. I’m being more careful, than impulsive, but perhaps too careful. There’s a a sense of flexibility I want to develop in regards to work and relationships—really, it’s holding myself back a little, for longer, rather than putting all my eggs in one basket, every time. It gets harder to get eggs after losing them, especially as you get older.

I’ve definitely felt the melancholy and malaise of this transit, but it was far more crushing for me when Saturn was in its own signs. Getting in touch with my feelings, finding a place for things like guilt and depression, instead of running, rationalizing, or avoiding/escapsim has had a positive affect on my mind and body, and I feel like I’m heading in the right direction. Resentment and forgiveness are also feelings I’m grappling with. Recently, I heard forgiveness defined as letting go of the desire to change the past. That really resonated with me and I also recognized that I’m not there yet with many things.

I’ve been sober of my drug of choice (marijuana) for almost a year, in February. The desire is sometimes there still, but I’ve been able to separate getting high from creating a certain vibe or getting into a certain state. I also think a lot more about tomorrow and various consequences, which really removes the desire if it comes up. I just don’t want to anymore. I have a strong Neptunian signature, and a family history of indulgence and addiction, so that imprint in itself is something I’m still working on figuring out.

Oh, I also gotten a kitten this past spring, which has been a lot of fun. I had to put my dog down a little over a year ago, and felt at the time that I would have another pet, but my brother’s family cat had kittens and I just knew the calico was going home with me. She is a sweeeetheart.

I did not expect to write that much but that’s my report. It’s not over yet, so I’m sure there will be more to include at a later date.

How is Saturn in Pisces going for everyone else so far?

Congrats on your sobriety and new kitty! Whats her name. I have a calico called Harlequin. We named her before that Marvel character, Harleyquin,  came out. They are really special Smile

@jana they ARE special! Her name is Nimbus, and she is so funny and sweet. She’s an Aries, but more silly than martial (like my mom’s intense Aries cat, lol!). She isn’t dominantly white, but she’s named after the cloud from Dragon Ball Z that could only be ridden by the pure of heart. Also, Harry Potter’s first broom stick. 

And thank you! I’m really grateful.

I've been busy since Saturn hit the sign, less so when it was retrograde.  It aspects my 8th house and I am dealing with a lot of people who are deeply traumatized... much of the trauma is coming in unexpected, meaning it's fresh. Death, illness and job loss, mostly. 🙁

I feel equipped for this. I mean, it is HARD. But I do know how to get a person into their boat, and explain how they can maintain themselves.  I'm sorry for how this sounds, but I don't think it's a common skill.

So basically, I am using my skills + compassion and other knowledge (depending on the scenario), to stop a person from spinning out. Getting them into a position where they can get through a trauma.

This has been 1/2 my calls and I am not mentioning the slip on a banana peel calls, of just sheer fear and panic.

I personally feel okay. I'm grateful and on the job. I feel this is right for me and also for others.

@elsa I think you are uniquely qualified to help people in the way you do, and I’m really glad you’re here to do it. I’ve seen so many people just walloped lately, in the ways that you mention.

@buendia thank you and yes!  Client yesterday has a great job. She went to work to get her raise... and got laid off.  Big WTF?

You can imagine how this feels!  A person is on the floor, gasping for air.

Others see it coming, which is another version of hell, but back to the other woman... she's hit with a brick and needs someone to quickly absorb her trauma, which I can do. I just take it in. Crazed ---> Neutral - take's me five minutes, sometimes less, if I have a relationship.

Then I get them oriented and hand them a plan (everything customized of course).

Many people follow it, exactly, knowing I am very good of 'scaping hell. My plans tend to work - they have a recording to refresh themselves - this is generally done in 30 minutes.

Fuckin' A, I'm a specialist.

@elsa Exact same thing happened to my sister-in-law. 2nd house Scorpio Sun, Virgo Moon. She was trainer at tmobile, worked there 12 years. She was really comfortable, never saw herself doing anything else. Laid off with no warning. AI is taking her position.

Three kids, mortgage, etc. Thankfully, my brother was there, working, and she had enough connections, to smooth her transition to a position in another field. But wow, was it a shock. 

I like your phrase, absorbing the trauma. Neutralizing the shock that can be so destabilizing. That makes a lot of sense to me. It can sit and fester, and make things worse if it isn't processed.

@buendia it depends on the person, I'm sure. But this is what it's like. I know about this because I realized, back when I was in my 20's, going to therapy, towards the end, I was going there to rage and puke it all up. I left tge sessions,  feeling good. Clear.

Once I realized this, I left therapy soon after.  The therapist was barely involved at that point. I also didn't think it was kind or respectful.  I had a great therapist so I just told her I thought I should go it alone.

@elsa That's quite an insight. It seems like you learned how to process independently! And learned to expedite the process for others. I imagine a savvy client would be able to apply your advice to a multitude of situations.

Lol I’m going to leave the typo in that comment, because apparently it’s the theme of the day. 

Going to make some tea and slow down now 😂

@buendia congratulations on your sobriety, and really good to read you're looking after yourself well!

When Saturn moved into Pisces, I felt really calm and thoughtful (Pisces is my 3rd house) and found I was really enjoying it, even though my Natal Saturn is in Virgo and my Moon in Pisces. I received a couple of bad bits of news in October, then, BAM, all the negativity and fear flooded my psyche. Pluto was exactly squaring my Merc at this time, which can't have helped 😉 .

I flailed for a bit, lost in Piscean glumness, but I fought hard to get back on top of it, and think I've got there this past week, pretty sure Jupiter turning direct has helped! I'm about to enter a busy phase, so I don't think I'll have the time to wallow, but if I get caught, I'm teaching myself to feel all the feelings - the fear, the sadness, whatever, for one day max, no more, and then back up and at 'em 🙂

@plutolover October was rough with all those eclipses. I’m really glad to hear you’ve found your bearings, and things are picking up.

I admire your discipline! I’m working on something similar, but still can feel so overwhelmed sometimes. I’m grateful when I keep my head, but it sure hasn’t always come naturally.

Mine is in the 6th house as well … it started off with just a lot of work in my career and this caused major anxiety so I got put back on my anxiety meds bc I wanted to but at the same time I worked hard to get off of the medication the past 3 1/2 years but now I can talk to people without being so awkward I just hate I can’t do it naturally.. but it is also helping me get through the recent passing of my mom so the anxiety meds are helping I’m also getting therapy as well but yeah nothing extreme until I lost my mom in November 2023 other than that now I’m dealing with running the business phone for my dad and setting up jobs for him and our other guys to do and also handling pay roll…. When my solar return said I would be the “boss” and in some kind of authority roll I didn’t think it would be like this that’s forsure … bc I’m also having to sell the business and the houses bc my dad is going through it even more so.. I don’t really have the time to mourn yet but I will

@mirandag I’m really sorry to hear about your mom, and I’m glad you’re here. You have a lot on your plate and in spite of everything, you seem strong and composed. It’s good that you’re doing what you need to take care of yourself, even if you have to compartmentalize a bit at this time.
