Saturn in Leo- July '05
The Lion in Winter
On a personal level this energy may feel like
“We aren’t having any fun here.” There won’t be
much tolerance for frivolity and the arts may lose a lot of funding or
be censored. If the energy is used in a transcendent way, the society
may value the way that arts contribute to civilization and take responsibility
for supporting them and integrating them more into education. The superstars
we admire for their artificial glamour (they are our royalty) will be
using their influence and wealth for more concrete social contributions.
Leo is also associated with the flattery and mutual recognition of the romantic spark. It is the joy of graciously and generously sharing love. If your motivation for relationship is narcissistic, Saturn will take your ego down a notch. If you are seeking romance you will be more discerning about choosing someone who matches your level of attainment. If you are in a dead-end relationship, you will be evaluating the cost of your misery.
When Saturn is in Leo there are many changes of political regimes and national borders. Sometimes despots gain power and other times they are toppled. The old model of Saturn in Leo would be the overachieving super entitled Student Council President (male, of course with a Dentyne gleam in his perfect smile). We still elect our leaders on the basis of this image. Revisit the movie “Election” with Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon. However the world has changed. The superconsciousness has been electrified by passages of Uranus, Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius, the sign opposite Leo. Aquarius represents the cooperation and collectivity of equals in community. Chiron in Aquarius (triumph of the nerds) will be opposite Saturn in Leo demanding that genius from the rank and file is what the world needs. A concern for humanity must be the motivation for sharing our achievements. The mavericks will be the people who are getting things done.
