Saturn in Mundane Astrology.  Saturn is the planet of safety, economy and poverty; hence his most characteristic influence is to contract and depress.  He is a business planet (as well as Jupiter) and has an influence over the business trend in a country, tending to contraction, to over cautiousness, and to measures of protection.

Diseases in general are under his influence, as are sanitary and other measures taken to protect the public health.  Action of all kinds which is prompted by fear and has for object protection, comes under his dominion.  When afflicted he is responsible for various kinds of loses, including the loss of public health which occurs during an epidemic.  In financial matters, his influence following the boom periods of Neptune, or the extravagances of an afflicted Jupiter, leads to a time of depression.  Jupiter and Saturn together are chiefly responsible for the rise and fall of markets and the periods of business advance and the periods of business recession.

Saturn rules the land, the buildings on the land, the crops which grow from the soil, the mineral wealth under the ground, and basic utilities like steel, lumber and coal.  He also has chief influence over the weather.  The destruction of crops and buildings, therefore, through flood, storms, and when Mars plays a part even through fire, comes under his jurisdiction.

In a cycle chart, the house occupied by the planet for which the chart is erected becomes unusually important as indicating the starting point from which the influence emanates which brings about the most important events which transpire during the life of the cycle.  Thus in the Saturn Cycle chart of  February 16, 1997, Saturn is in the 5th house.  This indicates that the country's children, schools and colleges, the stock market and places of entertainment become an influence through which the most important events signified by the cycle are brought to pass.  That is, the things which Saturn rules are shown to be so closely associated with children, the stock market, et al., that during the life of this cycle they will have a tendency to bring those things to pass which the chart as a whole indicates, and which specifically are timed and denoted by the progressed aspects of Saturn to the radix (natal) planets.

At the time Saturn makes an aspect to the position of a planet in its chart, events will come to pass influenced by orthodox thought, by cautiousness, conservatism, economy and fear, by movements for security and protection, and by lands, homes, crops and the weather.

A point of weakness in this chart is a retrograde Mars in Libra, sign of its detriment, meaning the aggressive urges by which action can be taken is at a disadvantage; there is an incapacity to act with regard to 11th house matters as that is the house in which it is posited.  Thus, congress is and will be ineffective as to doing the people's bidding, the only reason they have been voted into office.  Compounding the vacillating action of congress is the retrograde motion of Mars, giving rise to irrational action on the part of the legislature as they stumble to and fro in their attempts to do the bidding of their masters, finally revealing their impotency to their constituents.

The opposition of retrograde Mars to Saturn is indicative of danger and abuse to children and an inability to avoid severe business losses, most particularly involving the stock market (Saturn in the 5th house).

It should be noted that Aries is on the 6th house cusp - the health of the people - and does not bode well for the country in general and the citizens in particular...especially since Pluto in the 1st house reconciles the Mars/Saturn opposition so that toxic vaccines are encouraged as a preventative. 

As I type - January 2013 - Saturn in Scorpio, transiting the Cycle 12th house, is closely square radix 3rd house Mercury in Aquarius.  Mercury rules young people...the 3rd house - among other things - rules computers and all manner of communication...and Aquarius rules legislation.  Saturn tends to crimp communication.  Over the course of the next few months you will hear or read about negative legislation dealing with our children and the internet...with Saturn transiting the 12th house of the chart, know that there is a group working in secret to advance their agenda.

The USA Sun has progressed to 8* Pisces 12' in the 3rd house applying to square natal Uranus @ 8* Gemini 55' in the 6th house.

HOUSES describe circumstances...6TH HOUSE:
Armed forces, police and firefighters, the nation's food reserves - especially grains, computers, trade unions, public servants, public health and the working class in general.  This is where the action will take place.  The square will lean toward activity that is negative.

SIGNS describe atmosphere that surrounds environment...GEMINI
Inventive, curious, intellectual, nimble, democratic.  Among places it signifies game-rooms, elementary schools and nurseries, tennis courts, play grounds, subways, depots, transportation, all forms of communication, the marketplace.

PLANETS signify things, people or conditions; the energies that are operating - what the event is all about...URANUS

Uranus rules many things among which are disorder, confiscation, disaster, firearms (in the area of firearms, guns are the Uranian weapon of choice), weapons of an electromagnetic nature, mutinies, schisms, abberations, renegades, freedom, liberty, tyranny, suicides, trespassers, assassination attempts, etc.  Uranus is a key trigger to war.  It symbolizes fanatics, terrorists, and revolutionaries.  The actions of Uranus are extreme and of a back-lash type.  It rules the unexpected and unforeseeable.

ASPECTS describe how circumstances operate...SQUARE:
A square is the aspect formed when two planets are approximately 90 zodiacal degrees apart.  This is a quite discordant aspect.  The destructive energy of this astral maelstrom acts in a violent manner.  Uncontrolled, it manifests in harsh, rash, explosive bursts of energy that tend to tear up and destroy all it contacts.  It signifies positive lack of adaptation to environment, and consequent conflict.  It brings acute crises, and temporary periods of struggle between the things signified by the two planets.  The acute conflict and violent antagonisms it brings eventually cause radical changes.

SUMMATION:  As the Sun rules the country's leader and Uranus rules the memes of freedom, firearms and force (civil and military) the expression of these energies leads me to deduce that an attempt is being made to manipulate law-abiding, gun owning Americans into a civil war by threatening to confiscate their guns.  The square of Sun to Uranus suggests that such a move would engender unexpected consequences on those who usurp our Constitution and Bill of Rights, the result of which would be a major fail.

In January, Senator Dianne Feinstein plans to introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.  The following, written by an ex-marine - the epitome of what being a freedom-loving American means - symbolizes the desire for freedom granted to us by our forefathers:

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma'am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,
