The Importance Of Loving What You Do – Saturn On Sagittarius 25: A Chubby Little Rich Boy On His Hobbyhorse

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill

Saturn is now on Sagittarius 25: A CHUBBY LITTLE RICH BOY RIDES UPON A HOBBYHORSE. It has just moved off Sagittarius 24: A BLUEBIRD, A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK AND HAPPINESS, IS STANDING AT THE DOOR OF THE HOUSE. I think it’s safe to say that not too many people have felt especially ‘lucky’ or ‘happy’ this past month or so. It’s been an interesting, and yet, as always with Saturn, somehow telling or rewarding month.

The degree Saturn was on before that was Sagittarius 23: A GROUP OF IMMIGRANTS FULFILLING THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTERING A NEW COUNTRY – so, we can see how Saturn is moving through these degrees… meanwhile, Saturn is now on the Chubby Little Rich Boy On His Hobbyhorse… the following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –

Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches to conceive how others can be in want. Jonathan Swift

It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow blower, or vacuum cleaner. Ben Bergor

In this era of affluence and of permissiveness, we have, in all but cultural areas, bred a nation of over-privileged youngsters, saturated with vitamins, television and plastic toys. Judith Crist

Well, you know when you’re rocking in a rocking chair, and you go so far that you almost fall over backwards, but at the last instant you catch yourself? That’s how I feel all the time. Stephen Wright

A hobby a day keeps the doldrums away. Phyllis Mcginley


Commentary: ‘A Chubby Little Rich Boy Rides Upon a Hobbyhorse’. Webster’s dictionary defines a ‘Hobby Horse’ as “1) a strong active horse, of middle size 2) A stick, often with the head or figure of a horse, on which boys make believe to ride 3) A subject or plan upon which one is constantly setting off; a favorite and ever-recurring theme of discourse, thought, or effort; that which occupies one’s attention unduly, or to the weariness of others; a ruling passion.” ‘A Chubby Little Rich Boy’ shows a young child that has all his material needs met; he’s well fed and looked after. He ‘Rides Upon his Hobby Horse’, which could be anything from a real horse to a stick horse. Presumably he enjoys the fun and the motion—perhaps it soothes him or keeps him occupied when he has nothing else to do. Perhaps there are other things he could be doing, such as school lessons or domestic chores, but he’s probably not thinking about those right now. Does he enjoy what he’s doing or is it that he’s gotten into the habit of being on his ‘Hobby Horse’? If he’s just started playing, he may soon discover that he can’t actually go anywhere with this “toy” as it’s very limited in its range or motion. Indeed, if it is a “rocking horse”, it has no forward motion, rather it continually goes over the same ground, backwards and forwards.

Oracle: Somebody in this situation may feel that they are doing what is necessary, however it is probably not the real thing, but more of a training session perhaps a practice run. Are you, or someone else, doing something over and over? Perhaps there’s a feeling of being bored with all the big plans and big endeavors that go nowhere and largely come to nothing. Still, this may be a time of learning. Looking upon life’s experiences as a lesson will help you to move onto the next stage of the situation. Keep up the practice and the play, one day you’ll probably have to prove yourself in a more rigorous, demanding situation.

Keywords: Hobbies and their pleasures. Unrestrained, imaginative play that can lead to truly wonderful creations, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Protected practice. Having to have one’s sexual needs fulfilled before one loses energy. Exercise, doing something because one can. Constantly going off on distracting schemes. Boys and their toys. Unrestrained passion.

The Caution: Someone spoilt and shallow. Feeling that one can take on anything without thought of the actual consequences. Playing when one should be more serious about life. Not doing one’s work, avoiding it by doing ‘fun’ things instead. Having no friends to play with.

It’s also interesting to note that Saturn moves off this degree around February 6, and, moves onto Sagittarius 26: A FLAG BEARER IN A BATTLE.
