Saturn On The Reunion Degree: Sagittarius 1
Saturn is retrograde on the first degree of Sagittarius as it goes back into Scorpio… The Sabian Symbol for Saturn is Sagittarius 1: RETIRED ARMY VETERANS GATHER TO REAWAKEN OLD MEMORIES
This is an interesting transit and it will be telling what happens with it. There will be ‘reunions’, yes, but there can also be instances where people just don’t want to see each other… this is Saturn retrograde, after all.. sometimes, we run into someone we would rather not see – how do we deal with it? Do we have barriers and defences?
Other times, we can see people that mean the world to us – and it can be a blessing. The trick is to know how much of ‘the past’ to go over. This can show people sharing their past, but, it can also show people wanting to cover over what their histories have been – just sharing pleasantries…
As I said, it’s an interesting transit over this degree.
For my story, I am going to a huge family reunion. I didn’t organise it… curious that it’s smack on Saturn on this degree. Most of those coming are older people… Saturn shows up that way, as well, often, but not always.
The Symbol shows reunions and gathering together with people who have shared histories, struggles or issues. A reunion can ignite feelings of camaraderie, companionship and triumph, sometimes along with great passions. As these are “Retired Army Veterans”, it’s through the passing of time and with the hindsight of age that many things can be faced, healed and laid to rest. In going over the memories of ‘old battles’ you may find the clues for current ones. However, this degree can show a personality that goes over and over old hurts, injuries, diseases, etc. The trick also is not to see others as the ‘enemy’, but rather see in everyone the possibility of friendship.
Reunions. Past life memories. Fellowship. Masculine domains. Understanding the individual within an idealistic struggle. Finding comrades. Moratoriums. Tears of the past.
The Caution: Not letting go of the past. Exaggerating past successes to justify current strategies. Going over the same old ground. Jobs for the boys. Prisoners of war. Pain.
