As one of the planets historically thought to be on the outer limits of the solar system (until the “modern” planets were discovered), Saturn has always been associated with the moon, itself a peripheral heavenly body because it belongs to Earth and not to the solar system. Therefore, both Saturn and the moon are aspects of a protection principle (the moon encompasses the earth in the same way as Saturn and its rings encompasses the solar system). Like the moon, Saturn rules a security/insecurity dialectic, but where the moon’s concerns the private, intimate aspects of the individual, Saturn influences social and collective security. Saturn can be thought of as the polar opposite of the moon (the archetype of the mother, but also of the child, and therefore related to orality). The god Saturn ate his children in order to reign and thus, represents the archetype of the mother (motherhood), the grandmother, and the sage (wisdom). The domination of Saturn thus indicates a maternal complex or, at least, an issue related either to the biological mother or to the symbolism of motherhood. This influence may result in a problem of identity and difficulties in aging which will make themselves evident in personal crises at every passage of this planet, every seven yearsâ€”thus at the age of 7, at 14 or 15, and 21, 28, etc. Depending on the psychological context in which you are developing, you may overcome or overcompensate your identity complex and gradually acquire a strongly structured personality, or, conversely, remain in a state of immaturity which would probably be detrimental to your destiny.
As the heart of the solar system, the sun is the source of all warmth and life. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped. It has symbolized the absolute power kings and despots yearn for and emulate. The sun king, the nucleus of society, embodied a principle of cohesion and harmony. Various subordinatesâ€”aka planetsâ€”revolved around it. In terms of psychological symbolism, the sun corresponds to the center of an individual, the factor that rules your psyche. Its luminous aspects are usually associated with knowledge and consciousness. As a creator of life, it is related to the image of the mother and the influence of motherhood on an individual’s consciousness and ideals. As a result, the sun’s position in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to your goals and ideals, what your ambitions and aspirations might involve. A person whose chart is strongly “solar” usually identifies very positively with motherhood. You are friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. You take your own superiority and authority over others for granted, and you have a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. You are a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration. You have definite artistic leanings. The sense of your ideals is evident to you and may lead you to be somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, your deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
Neptune is a planet of dissolution and flexibility. You are very receptive and available, and you yearn for unity and connection. At times, your deep feelings of confusion and unease overwhelm you, and you need to escape into an imaginary world. However, usually your fantastic dreams only make you more aware of the realities of everyday life. Your spirit and emotions are often confused, and your will is often weakened.
The twelfth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Alexis Oakley’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to tradition, this sector of the astrological chart is related to hardship, disease, hospitals, and all other areas associated with weakness and weariness. More specifically, this area of the sky map is associated with the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces, or the Fishes. It symbolizes the epilogue of your various experiences. This is where the failures you encountered as you were going about your evolution may have accumulated; in certain extreme cases, they may have an impact on your health or well-being. This sector should thus be associated with your need to confront your own past, assume the errors you may have made, and accept your flaws. If you hope to improve your performance, you must confront your past, understand and analyze it. Before starting something new, it is often important to settle the unfinished business first. If this house is especially prominent, you may have to concentrate on making sure every initiative is followed through to completion, including a constructive analysis of your experiences afterward. You may wonder about the personal and spiritual value of your acts and thoughts. You may sometimes be haunted by the memories of your failures; at that point, you must have the courage to confront your mistakes and learn a lesson from them.
Alexis Oakley, you should focus on the first house in your theme.
