Then, in June, the master of reality became locked into another square with Neptune, ruler of illusion and alternative realms. This conflict continues.
Saturn’s constrictive rulership over 3D-structured reality mandates that all our thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and worldviews be strictly based on lifetimes of experience, study, and rational, objective analysis, not on premises, hypotheses, dreams, delusions and speculation.
However, when the old devil spun back into retrograde, his whole auditing process of ‘reality-formation’ became geared into a highly subjective selection process – the fact-gathering cogs of his device providing an understanding (with Saturn Rx in Sadge) that determines reality based only on what conveniently reinforces his chosen preconception or persuasions. This means that his reality system is heavily swayed and skewed by personal biases; a selective understanding of what we ‘know’ is real, based upon a tendency to search out or interpret information that only confirms his preconceptions. This, ultimately leads to statistical errors.
For instance, if we belong to the fraternity that believes that ‘Robin Hood’ is a baron criminal (not some good guy) we will only seek out and hear instances that incriminate, denounce his character and post him as a villain. We will dispute, deny, even ignore any nonsense that he is a folk hero, or people’s legend. We will not stand to listen to any reports or news that he is a ‘stealing from the rich to give to the poor’, we will only seek evidence to build a case that he is nothing other than a petty thief, a heartless outlaw whose offenses against the system only serve to disrupt the established order etc.
When Saturn goes retro, everybody has their version of reality, based on their confirmatory bias.
Through the highs and lows of these past few months, as Jupiter and Saturn remained in square, our beliefs were increasingly brought into question as we were forced to seriously question our morals, ethics, laws and judgements, the unwoven fabric of our society’s goals and ambitions to get along together as a tribe against the constructs of time and space.
What many of us had found through this time is that growth in the physical world is not as unlimited as previously advertised – not infinite as such. Through a greater, ever-increasing number of disappointments or delays (and later, as Saturn started to square Neptune in June) we had slowly become acquainted with the world of much disillusionment and pessimism, becoming increasingly suspicious that the promises, the guarantees and hocus pocus of the exterior world may inexplicably be incapable of making our dreams and aspirations really work out as we expected.
Did we take too much of a slanted view on how we choose to see reality?
Here we see a different kind of fact-gathering, a strong case being built against any individual or group who has stretched their wild intentions, gone way too far, got too greedy, arrogant or unwise, forgot their manners, rules and ‘rightful social place’ in the pecking order – basically serving as a timely reminder that the 3D world is really not a place to be messed with – that there are rules and regulations that must be followed, and no shortcuts or misgivings will be allowed to slide without severe restrictions being imposed.
Saturn will try to make a solid case now.
Of course, the ruler of this establishment is being severely tested this month – a sesquisquare to Uranus sees the establishment fighting desperately the hold things in place against disruptive and increasingly revolutionary activity, and towards the end of this month and into September, Saturn faces his last stand with the ever-rising floods and tidal waves of Neptune, which threaten to completely erode the cliff face, seeing the old man plunge, head first, into the sea of sorrow and depression.
It will come to be seen that ‘absolute reality’ is just another version, of another story, and no matter how many join in on the consensus, the real truth remains elusive if we continue to pass arbitrary judgments.
Those of you still holding fearfully to laws, agreements & belief systems that do not serve a more compassionate, more forgiving, accepting and inclusive world will certainly know how it may feel to become beleaguered and besieged by an unknown, surreptitious and invisible force that threatens to completely leave you submerged in a sea of dismay and disillusionment.
Dreams must either come true by applying a healthy sense of realism, or they will be met with rude awakening, as early as the end of this month.
REALITY CHECK yourself.

Where Saturn will apply pressure for you:
Own beliefs, outlook on world events and matters of the higher mind. Seriously seeking meaning and purpose in your life.
Joint enterprises and investments, business partnerships, financial commitment with personal partners, life and death can also be a serious concern with the birth or death of a loved one.
Relationship with partner, greater responsibilities within the partnership, priorities in both business and personal partnerships – end of serious relationships or close a business contract, marriages or divorces, finally meeting someone significant.
Health and your daily routine, bad habits replaced by new regime, new diet or exercise routine, relationship with co-workers.
Your creations – children, artistic project, relaxation and recreational activities all require responsibility.
Foundations of your life, renovating house, family and loved ones, building firmer foundations for the future.
Communications with others, negotiating a serious deal, putting more thought into your getting your ideas across, learning new skills, relationships with siblings may be restricted.
Financial restrictions, resources are stretched to the limit, self-esteem issues. A more disciplined approach towards building up personal resources, getting personal money matters in order.
Reaping what you have sown, facing responsibilities, overwhelmed by duties, receiving recognition for past efforts. New things bring new responsibilities.
Working behind the scenes, clearing the karmic debts, privacy and seclusion rather than limelight. Fear of the unknown and mysticism.
Group commitments become responsibility or burden, friendships that cement their stay or become annulled. New visions for the future take form.
Career direction, public status, reward and recognition for hard work, reconsidering career options, change of direction, cementing your public status, role as parent or relationship with parents may become more firm/frustrating.
