You have a nagging urge to feel safe. Chances are you’re preoccupied with security. You experience hardship. You adapt, persist and struggle on. You’ve got a plan. You’re on a budget. You’re applying safeguards. You’re doing all you can to stay safe, financially secure and healthy. Maybe you’re feeling great because you’re feeling safe.
Saturn in your birth chart is the data reference for information pertaining to your security urge. It’s a dynamic not-conscious urge from which your desire for safety, caution, careful planning, organization, work, responsibility and economy emerges.
The position of Saturn on your chart’s planet power summary is determined by its astrodyne power score; and there’s a direct correlation between its power, harmony or discord and the strength and functionality of your not-conscious security urge.
Your backstory involved hoarding food, fleeing enemies, struggle, hardship and loss and its psychological legacy – your security urge – has been saved in memory in your not-conscious soul-mind.
Saturn in your birth chart allows you to gain an understanding of your safety urge and loss life. Fear is a response to danger, pain or harm. When it surges through your not-conscious soul-mind and streams into your conscious awareness it prompts you to escape the life threatening situation.
Through personal experience you’ve developed a security behavior habit. You’re taking self-protection measures. You’ve got a job, financial plan and insurance. You save for a rainy day. You’re doing all you can to prevent hardship and loss. You just want to be free from fear, worry, anxiety and casualty. Whatever... loss occurs.
When thoughts of safety, secrecy, acquisitiveness, covetousness, envy, comparison, buying, trading, system, order, persistence, fear, worry, selfishness or greed are on your mind you’re thinking Saturn thoughts. And the strength of Saturn in your birth chart reveals if they’re a permanent part of your thinking, a regular state of mind, or just an occasional occurrence.
Power, harmony or discord
Your chart’s planet power summary measures two sets of Saturn data: Its relative strength which is fixed and its harmony or discord which is variable rather than absolute.
The position of Saturn on your chart’s planet power summary allows you to rate its influence as prominent, non-prominent or weak.
If Saturn has the highest astrodyne score it’s your dominant planet and it’s the dominant influence in your life. If its percentage score is above 8.3% you should rate it prominent. It indicates that Saturn is having an above average – prominent – influence in your life. If it has a percentage score below 8.3% you should rate it non-prominent. And if it has a very low percentage score you should rate it weak.
There’s a direct correlation between the strength of Saturn and the frequency at which you experience security thoughts, feelings and impulses.
The harmony or discord of Saturn allows you to rate its functionality as harmonious or discordant.
If Saturn has a harmony score you should rate your security urge as harmonious and your security thoughts and feelings as constructive and effective. They’re embedded with harmonious psychokinetic power that inclines towards work, responsibility, future planning and economy rather than hardship and loss.
If Saturn has a (-) discord score (and most charts do) you should rate your security urge as discordant and your security thoughts and feelings as destructive and ineffective. They’re embedded with discordant psychokinetic power that inclines towards hardship, dearth, struggle, disease and loss. You’re selfish, envious and greedy through ignorance.
But the harmony or discord score won’t be absolute and there’s a good chance that amidst the harmony there’s discord and amidst the discord there’s harmony. Whatever ... the net Saturn harmony or discord score allows you to rate the functionality of your not-conscious security thinking. There’s a correlation between the two.
Saturn discord requires careful management and you should create a Saturn harmony-discord profile that details the Saturn aspects in harmony/discord order. Saturn’s aspect structure allows you see life situations where your security thoughts, feelings and actions are inclined to be effective and beneficial or ineffective and harmful.
Saturn kills the joy and any tendency to experience worry, fear, anxiety, anguish, gloom, despair or depression should be relieved with a pleasant social life and a network of friends and associates who provide support, fun and pleasure.
