Saturn on Sagittarius 4: A Little Child Learning To Walk
Saturn has just moved onto Sagittarius 4: A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF PARENTS
This Symbol can show how we can ‘encourage’ or support others, and, it can also show how we can do with it sometimes ourselves. To be recognized and acknowledged is a part of this. With Saturn here, it might feel like there’s some ‘hard lessons’ to be learned, or, it could feel like we’ve not had the support of parents or that the support we did receive didn’t reflect who we truly are as individuals. Still, I think that Saturn here now is saying that we might be starting a new round of ‘lessons’ about how to be in life… life is such an interesting journey and it is a good thing to have mentors, guides or those who are there in case we fall, and, of course, we do that for others. With Saturn here now, we might feel a distinct urge to get in touch with our ‘inner child’.
This Symbol implies the necessity of those older to be teachers, exemplars or guides to the younger or less experienced. The “Child” needs the “Encouragement” of “Parents” in order to feel supported or guided. At times in your life, you are likely to fulfill the roles of child or parent to others. As you learn and grow, you may move into new phases of learning that, despite all your previous experience, are surprisingly difficult. Patience and step-by-step progress is needed, as is a guiding hand and a kind word or two. There may be those around you that don’t take your difficulties or responsibility seriously, but your struggles will pay off, particularly if you care and share.
Genuine progress. Instinctive determination. Feeling mother earth under your feet. Taking delight in the smallest progress. Teachers, parents, children. Driving schools.
The Caution: Relying on skills that are not mastered. Not taking the initiative. Preferring being at risk rather than accepting help. Being left alone. Tripping others up.
