In this year that changed it all, as we celebrate All Hallows Eve, Samhain and All Souls' day under the Taurus full moon, we honor the ones we've lost. On October 31 and November 1, 2020, we thank our own ancestors, but in addition, this year we also mourn all those who we have collectively lost, too many to count.
I have run into the song "Saturn" by Sleeping at Last, several times this week. First I just saw several social media references to it, and then it mysteriously just started playing on my iPhone without prompting. Since I don't believe in coincidences, I finally sat down to really listen to it, and it truly moved me to my core:
"You taught me the courage of stars, before you left. How light carries on endlessly, even after death. With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite. How rare and beautiful it is, to even exist" -"Saturn" by Sleeping At Last
Saturn represents limits, restrictions and endings. It is the furthest planet that human eye can see and, therefore, in ancient times Saturn was thought of as the gate keeper to other realms. Human life does have its limits, as we all know. To continue to observe the karmic map that is astrology, is a lifelong study that I am honored to have as my guide. To try to understand the code of fate and free will, is an ongoing mystery that was handed down to us from the ancients. The dance of fate sparkles like the stars in the night sky, whispering to us from the realm beyond Saturn, the realm that we can't see. All we can do is to be amazed by human existence, which is simultaneously so fragile and so divine.
Join me by taking a moment recognizing how rare and beautiful our human life is. It sparkles here on earth, taking a human form for a moment. But then it moves on, joining the stars in their eternal dance of mystery and guidance.
I wish you and your ancestors a healing, soothing, holy day.
