Saturn in Scorpio is currently opposed Sedna in Taurus, and by the 25th Mercury will cap off a neat little T-square with these two. Add to this Mars quincunx Sedna (also by the 25th), and we have an interesting recipe active over the coming week or so, worthy of note. This is what I wrote in the Daily (for ECLIPSE subscribers) for the Moon’s contact to Sedna, on the 23rd: 1 AM PST of the 23rd the Moon quincunxes Sedna, urging adjustment to the feelings when we might not be sure what’s driving the change! Either something we’re not consciously unaware of (but unconsciously noticing) is prompting modification, restraint, pull-back, or jumping in with both feet, or something from our own deepest nature, from a wordless well of just being, is trying to guide us. In either case, this is probably a good urge to follow; file it under ‘intuition is safe to listen to even when we don’t know why’.
This may begin the dynamic; the emotional perceptions prompt action that likely remains more or less a mystery in terms of what moves us. The ‘T’ makes communication either the outlet for the stand-off between Sedna and Saturn, or it becomes the resolution for the two, translating energies in a pair of signs that are more about perception and experience than they are prone to formulate things in words. Watch the natal Houses of your own chart ruled by Mercury for areas where the Sedna-Saturn opposition is likely to manifest. We may see the reality picture, or the establishment, rules, or structure of things (Saturn) troubled, even challenged, by primal forces–suddenly we’re taking life very very seriously–or we find problems when a ‘blind spot’ which hides some vital component remains unseen. Others will see the difficulty, and the solution, but we may not. This can work out in a variety of ways, but flexibility, a willingness to act and perhaps to defend what may need defending (Mars), as well as a willingness to recognize that sensation, intuition, and those strong, pre-verbal parts of ourselves need not always bend to the mind and those ‘civilizing’ influences to which we’ve become accustomed, will go a long way toward handling this opposition in the best way possible.
