Saturn in Sagittarius: The more I learn, the less I know

Socrates succinctly describes my present feelings with his famous quote: 'The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know'

Back in 2012, when Neptune ingressed into Pisces, I blogged about its effect, especially that I have Mars, South Node and Sun in Pisces.  I was half dreading how that could manifest in reality, though my fellow astro pals were a lot more optimistic.  

Neptune conjunct my natal Mars came and went, pretty uneventfully, with only a feeling of lethargy.  I paid so much attention to Neptune that I totally neglected transiting Saturn in Scorpio sending a wonderful trine to my Mars.  No matter how listless I had felt, I could somehow muster up enough discipline to plough through each day.  

Four years on, Neptune is now hovering over my Mars/Sun midpoint.  The story has changed.  No longer do I have Saturn backing me up.  The trine is now a square, with Saturn ingressed into Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is too fun-loving for my earth-laden chart, but I guess that is the lesson for me - to restructure the way I work, to go with the flow and be a free spirit.  

With my psychological astrology background, I thought modern astrology is all that we need in this civilised day and age.  However, transiting Neptune oppose my Saturn is certainly dissolving my current boundaries as I soon discovered how much traditional astrology had to offer.  So with Jupiter transiting my 2nd house, I'm expanding my knowledge-base considerably.  However, it still leaves me with the feeling that as I'm learning more and more, I know less and less (Saturn transiting my 5th)!

I'll go with the flow and see where this Saturn-Neptune square will take my mutable planets.  But one thing for sure,  the Universe is forever throwing us signs and it's up to us to decipher its meanings encrypted within.
