Personal transits. 2- Saturn through each house

Saturn last only two and a half years, but they seem to last longer. Saturn tests our personal structures, commitments and goals.

Despite the pain, Saturn is a great teacher.

I include my own experiences and at which time they did occur.

10 Early 1984
I had this many years ago, I had confrontations in school and with my father. Saturn transiting the tenth refers to a climax in our focus in career and social goals. This can be a time of career restructuration, solidification or promotion, with many demands in our work and pratical life. Great responsability can come through a job or parental role.
11 Mid1986
I developed new long term ideals and hobbies at this time. It was a time of little social life and much introspective and individual living. This transit relates to the manifestation of long-term goals and creation of new hopes for the future.
12 Mid 1989
This was one of most difficult periods in my life. This is supposed to be a emotional heavier period, like all other transits of Saturn through water houses (4/8/12). But the degree of difficult, I think it depends a lot on fate, on what your soul has chosen. I had plenty of health and relationship complications at this time and it also deepen my compassive nature. Saturn transiting the twelfth means the end of a 28 year cycle, it's a time of retirement, of less social contact and much more introspection. We review our lives, as many of our structures are ending their time, making space for a new life structure as Saturn enters the first house.
1 Mid 1992
It was a little bit like new slow beginnings for me. A new place of living, new occupation, new friends and social contacts. And gradually a new way of being. But don't expect to be too extrovert at this time, you are testing your self-expression nature. I developed new interests at this time. Saturn transiting the first is a major period of change in our lives. We feel quite unsatisfied and wishing to create brand new interests and a brand new path for our life.
2 Mid 1994
Nothing special. A time of more effort in the working situation. I was confronting more the values of my relationships and intimacy. This can be a time of sorting out what we value in life. Life probably demands financial sacrifices as we make efforts to manifest the vision we created under the first house transit.
3 Mid 1997
A hard time of study, with a heavy toll in my mind! Much intellectual effort but also potential for much success. Inhibited (spoken) communication. I also had some depression at this time, because of not going deeper in my mind (I was not spiritually aware). This transit relates to education challenges, social contact and new activities, that demand effort from us.
4 July 1999 - August 2000 - May 2002
A very emotional and depressive time. Saturn is a test, and this is a test to your core identity. Although this was a difficult and heavy period, I have to thank this transit for rediscovering my essence. Moved into another city, new life (1999). A personal and difficult inner change; a core new being is established (2000). My spiritual awakening (2001). I had a great social time at this time because Uranus was also transiting my first house. This transit of Saturn is a major one, a period of emotional density, where we feel heavy and slowly create a new identity, and new roots. We may change place of residence or confront family issues. This is a great transit for deep spiritual meditation and self evaluation.
5 August 2001 - June 2003 - June 2004
Overall, this is a lighter transit. It is a natural continuation of the former one. Now, you get out of your shell and express towards the world. Our emotions are better handled. Our shyness and inhibitions too. Romance takes a new effort. But in my case, it was also a source of disappointing (2001, 2003). In two other years, I had very positive relationships (2002, 2004). And a complete new way of self-expression in social circles (2003). I also did theater (2004), a perfect fit for a fifth house transit. This is a transit focusing in how can we express more of ourselves to the outer world, what can make us happy. Probably relationships will be a major focus at this time.
6 October 2003 - July 2005 - August 2006
Working takes a new deeper sense, requiring much effort (2004), for me it was a source of some discontent and sorrow because of heavy requirements (2005-2006). Somewhat exhausting. In my own case, I question whether my job and career was adequate for me; they weren't. But I could not quit my job, so I became frustrated and I had no other alternatives. The good thing was that I start exploring other possibilities. Health discipline (2004), I became vegetarian at this time after frequent colds. This transit can be a demanding time, work demands, we constantly confront what we think it's worth and useful in life, and what is not. This can affect relationship and how we feel about our career. We may wish to establish firm practical steps to change our life.
7 November 2005 - August 2007 - September 2008
Saturn tests the way you approach relationships. Both if you are single or committed. I the transit started with one relationship which did not work (2005), but since I was learning the value of solid compromise and balance, the next year I started a new and serious relationship that is still lasting (2006). The relationship then got firmly established (2007 and 2008). I also confronted a lot my professional situation and goals. Overall, this transit is good for relationships because you don't get rose romantic visions, you get real with what you need, and what the other partner truly is. This Saturn transit is a major one: in all likely, relationships will be a great source of focus, challenge and learning experiences. Our personal, social and career life can also have a major shift at this time.
8 September 2008 - October 2009 - October 2010
In relationships, it marks a continuing deepening of emotional intensity. Some important issues may arise and must be dealt with. You become truly aware of what the others are and need, emotionally speaking. This applies to family, friends or job. In my own case, it was more the financial situation that got a motif of worry (2008). I became unemployed (2009) and I must learn how to be self-sufficient. I became aware of the harsh difficulty of living and sustaining ourselves in our society. This makes a person question life and (slowly) change our way of being. There is much confrontation with personal desires and the limitations of the wishes that do not work (2009); a confrontation with the non-practicality of the personal wishes, desires and motivations. There are some psychological subtle compulsions, and much psychological dealings (2009). You gain personal and relationship strength. Basically this transit challenge us to confront how we make a living with others, both in intimate and professional relationships.
9 October 2010 - September 2013
At this moment (2010), I quit my job, and manifested a major shift in my life. I finally understand I cannot do what I don't want to (under the previous 8th house transit). Because of this, I am applying effort to look for new frontiers, to learn new fields, and try new career possibilities (9th house). I am living abroad already for two years, and I am planning a major move to a different country. This transit is all about looking and establishing new frontiers, as preparation to a restructuration of who we stand in society, and how much responsability we stand for others, to occur when Saturn transits the tenth house.

Right now, the author of this blog (me!) has Uranus squaring his natal Sun, and Uranus about to square also natal Mercury and oppose natal Mars!
It is like I am now plugged to the 220 V electric current! Or like I took a super-strong coffee! I am so full of physical, mental and spiritual energy, but also so intense dilemmas and motivations!

There are very strong urges to change, to adventure, but it is all very difficult to choose. Everything between sports, arts, volunteer, travelling, going to exotic places, etc, quit my job and go somewhere else, meet new people, it's all in my mind. All urges point to something about my deepest inner psyche, to the essence of my soul and our purpose. Uranus feels like the lonely traveller, the hippie, the revolutionary man, the crazy innovator, all mix together. Why the pressure to quit? Why the pressure to move? Why the rush? Why I apply to your crazy opportunities and even then I am not selected. Why do I question, do I quest?

Both Neptune and Jupiter are also sextiling my natal Sun and still near my Aquarius ascendant. Talk about big dreams, big disatisfaction about life, big plans, and big feelings. Add Saturn transiting eighth house. Feels like I am trying to break my inner shell. And with the transiting Sun approaching my ascendant next month, this crazy party is just beginning.

Can I call you for a consultation, Uranus?
Shall we have a tea together?

Personal transits. 1- Jupiter through each house

I will start now a series of articles, about my personal story of each planet transiting each of my chart houses.
Start the fun with the optimistic planet: Jupiter!

Like Sagittarius, Jupiter is always looking for new horizons...


1 Mid 1997
New professional opportunities and interests. The professional implications of my career choices at this time lasted for the whole following cycle.
2 Mid 1998
This was just a time of new professional interests and much study.
3 Mid 1999
A very enthusiastic and restless period. I had much study, much travelling and much social activity. At the end, I moved into another city and made many new social contacts. I start writing poetry.
4 Mid 2000
I moved into another city, I found there a new residence, with new friends, making this one of the most party-times of my life. This was also a time of introspection and personal insight. It was my first contact with the spiritual world, dream diaries, meaning of life, etc.
7 November 2002 - September 2003 - July 2004
Great expansion of relationships, very active social time. By the end, the relationship circle has grown and many long lasting relationships established (which are now my best friends). I was living temporarily abroad, thus meeting many people from different countries! Lots of friendship and relationship activity and social circles!
8 November 2003 - October 2004 - August 2005
Important relationships, emotions, money grants, compromises. In the end, there is a deeper sense of emotional compromise, depth and intensity. Lots of emotional/relationship activity which was more intense than the previous year. I did theater and experimented with entheogenic plants. A time to explore our emotional core.
9 December 2004 - October 2005 - September 2006
Exciting travel interests at the beginning, which then grow to more experimentation for future/cultural/global goals. Sense of adventure and social life. Gradually, many new opportunities and horizons were discovered. I traveled to Africa and the Amazon forest. I also spend a couple of weeks in some ecological communes.
10 January 2006 - November 2006 - October 2007
The transit starts with professional unrest, and after a while of exploration, a new and positive approach to career matters (although mostly with only a promise and positive plans). At this time, I decided to move abroad again, to a new job.
11 February 2007 - December 2007 - October 2008
Lots of idealism and future goals, more cultural settings. Mental effect. I was more involved more with ideas, ideals and groups, such as permaculture, self-sufficient, alternative education, psychology, and community living. Nothing new with friends, in fact this was quite an individualistic period.
12 March 2008 - January 2009 - March 2009
More introspection, much more meditation, and natural/artistic interests. I start painting and meditating at a daily basis. I lived with a woman abroad which practiced meditation. I also grew a large garden and spend much daily time in there; because I was also unemployed. And this was also a time of much little social activity.
1 March 2009 - January 2010 - March 2010
A much more active and expressive time. I was much more restless, searching a lot for new opportunities and horizons. I applied for new jobs, volunteer, I was much more social. More travelling and seeking more actively new opportunities. I started new hobbies. This is a very positive transit, kind of building a new vision for your life.

Revoluções em Portugal em 2058 e 2078. Mais mudança política entre 2011 e 2019

Haverá uma causa certa revolução/evento no país em 2078, porque todos os planetas externos estão em posições muito poderosas no mapa do país. Neptuno em Caranguejo como em 1910, 1755 ou 1590, Urano em Capricórnio como em 1830 e 1910, Plutão em Carneiro como em 1830 e 1590. Este evento deverá começar a germinar nos anos que antecedem o ano de 2078. Este será um evento que mudará a face de Portugal. Parece ser um mudança de regime, algo com consequências a longo-prazo.

O ano de 2058 também aparece muito significativo, dado que Urano está em Balança como em 1974, 1891 ou 1806, e Plutão em Peixes como em 1810s. Pode ser uma invasão ou uma revolta popular.

Os anos após 2010, com Urano no final de Peixes e entrando em Carneiro, costumam coincider com período instáveis no estrangeiro (que é reforçado por Plutão no final de Capricórnio), que pelo menos causam revoltas em Portugal, ou golpes oportunistas e militares, como em 1926 e 1846 ou 1851. O período a ter atenção é entre 2010 e 2020.
Costuma ser um período de extremos e o choque entre o revolucionário e o conservador
. Anos mais intensos de mudança política serão 2011 e 2019, mas ainda sem um impacto muito duradouro! É quase certo uma prolongada e confusa instabilidade política e social, uma gradual degeneração da confiança no sistema, tal como ocorreu entre 1850-1880 (Neptuno), a ocorrer nas décadas que se seguem. Os novos ideais de progressismo irão gradualmente desenvolver-se para se manifestar em revoluções históricas em 2058 e 2078.
