immediate solutions to crises situations.

The horoscope should be read at 2 levels:
1. The growth and unfolding of the Personality
2. The growth and unfolding of the Soul
Capricorn/Saturn represent the densest point of concrete materialization of which the human
Soul is capable of experiencing.
Saturn represents ―The Dweller on the Threshold‖ – in facing this Dweller, we face our past and
our fears. Capricorn, as a sign, fears losing control, dependency and feeling helpless; this is the
loss of trust, trust in the Higher Self.
1. The Saturn Sign is your personal Dweller in this lifetime
2. The House position is Where you will face the Dweller
a. The House is where you are forced to work out your Karma
In a distant past when there were only 10 signs in the Zodiac, Capricorn represented the highest
to which a man could aspire.
In Atlantis, the door was opened for Man to enter the 5th Kingdom-– the Aquarius and Pisces
were added to the zodiac. These signs represent Service to Humanity as a member of or working
with the 5th Kingdom, the World Server and the World Savior.
Blavatsky wrote about a point in human history, back in old Atlantis, when the Door was opened
for man to enter into the 5th Kingdom of Souls, to the realm of the Adepts. It seems that there
was a Great Cosmic Crisis in another part of the Universe that required many of the 5th
Kingdom Masters to vacate their posts. At this point, Man was allowed to aspire to fill these
positions and, I feel, that this is when the 2 signs of Aquarius and Pisces were added.
NOTE: Sirius, at 13 Cancer, is the home of the Hierarchy, the Borw Chakra of a Great Galactic
Entity and the Heart Chakra of a Galactic Entity— Beings in which we live, move and have our
existence— Hylozoism. This Star Chakra is where the Great Plan is formulated and carried out.
Interestingly, as we are in a Ray II Solar System, Love-Wisdom, those with this Fixed Star
prominent are extremely humanitarian and it represents a Socialistic form of government. Sirius
is also the Heart Chakra of another system, hence, it represents both love and will energies.
In Cancer, NORTH, is where the Soul first enters that Center called Humanity. Bailey,
Blavatsky and even Edgar Cayce all say that Cancer was the sign of the first human incarnation;
Capricorn and working with Saturn is the Gateway to the Hierarchy. Aries and Libra represent
the Aspect of Consciousness created through the interplay between Spirit and Matter.
Capricorn represents the Best and the Worst of Humanity. Through Saturn, its exoteric and
esoteric ruler, it can be greedy, selfish and materialistic (lack of trust and the trust to love) yet all
World Servers are born under Capricorn.
SATURN, as ruler of Capricorn, forces us to deal with the glamor and illusions represented by
the Moon in our horoscope. The Moon is said to represent the Prison of the Soul which has us
cling to our past. The Moon rules feelings, emotions, desires that APPEAR to be reality but they
are not. The Moon rules our past, past conditioning, the conditioning of our emotions and it is
the emotions of the Mother that we absorb as our own. The Moon influences us through the
Solar Plexus and the astral body – it makes us feel high, it makes us feel low; it makes us feel
loved, it makes us feel unworthy. It whips us around in a maelstrom of emotion. It all seems so
real but it is only the Glamor of this World.
Saturn rules boundaries, limitations, the rules and our societal dictations, NO, DON’T and
CAN’T. It makes the things of the physical appear to be all that there is. Neptune dissolves our
boundaries, the boundary of the etheric web, the seal to other dimensions. However, in going
through these other dimensions, you must quickly pass through purgatory…the astral plane and
the lower mental plane, before we finally reach the realm of the Causal Body…and, in the
scheme of things, even this is not that high up.
When we ultimately enter the 5th Kingdom of the Hierarchy, Venus replaces Saturn – ruling the
Higher Mind, intelligent and transpersonal love that aspires for the good of the Whole.
The symbol for Capricorn is in reality the Dragon, the Dragon of Wisdom and the Mind of the
Soul. In the Secret Doctrine, it is stated that, in the constellation of Capricorn, reside the 5th
Hierarchy of Spirits who are commissioned to stimulate the Mind in Man. Remember, it is 18
million years ago that the Lords of Flame came from Venus to bring the Spark of Mind to
animal man. It was 1 million years ago that the seeds of the Aryan Root Race were first planted
in Central Europe.
The 1000 Petaled Lotus:
1. Knowledge Petals ruled by Taurus, Leo and Scorpio
2. Love Petals ruled by Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius
3. Sacrifice Petals ruled by Aries, Cancer and Libra (even Cancer is the sacrifice to incarnate),
sacrificing the lesser for the greater. Example of student.
4. Initiation Petals are ruled by Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces
SATURN SIGNS AS CLUES
SATURN IN ARIES: ―You be what I tell you to be‖ indoctrination. Lesson to break free from
this limitation of being and find rapid access to the Higher Self in dealing with Crisis.
SATURN IN TAURUS: Responsibility and material acquisitiveness-–WWII and the recent
Market Crash. Taurus is ruled by Vulcan, free one’s self from the chains of materialism.
SATURN IN GEMINI: Thoughts are things; clarity of responsibility; feeling trapped by
expectations. Work on the Love Petals in dealing with people.
SATURN IN CANCER: Childhood imbued with the fears, guilts and insecurity of the family.
Right and wrong based upon emotions. Sacrifice our personal security for the security and
welfare of humanity. Example – overcoming my fears to work in Eastern Europe…now I have
overcome a lot of fear.
SATURN IN LEO: Responsibility dictated by respect for others. Lesson in doing something –
not because of a fear of punishment, rejection, disrespect or because you seek reward…but
simply because it is the right thing to do.
SATURN IN VIRGO: Perfectionism and the Love Petals are incompatible! This is the great
flaw, the striving to be perfect. There is no perfection. I am human, therefore, nothing human is
alien to me. Turning imperfection into assets.
SATURN IN LIBRA: Do it because of others – sacrificing self in order to work with the whole,
seeing the big picture, coordinating, the gestalt.
SATURN IN SCORPIO: If you are not in control, do it all yourself and do it perfectly,
something terrible will happen. Lesson in Trust.
SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS: Responsibilities are more abstract – not have you cleaned your
room but did you maintain standards of codes and ethics. Whose codes, by whose ethical
standards. One who upholds high standards.
SATURN IN CAPRICORN: Achievement on a day to day level. What have you done today.
The individual can feel overwhelmed by these day to day demands. Changing structures that
support rather than oppress— the 1960s and the 1989-90.
SATURN IN AQUARIUS: The rules are always right/wrong, black/white, not grey areas.
Rebellion against authority should manifest as bringing in the needed reforms that benefit
humanity. Don’t just tear down— build something constructive.
SATURN IN PISCES: These people can shoulder responsibilities, putting the weight of the
world on their shoulders. This can lead to illness or a lot of whining and complaining. Define
boundaries for others, define your own boundaries and shoulder responsibilities for something
that you believe in strongly.
Going off on a slight tangent I think it is curious that exoterically I have a Saturn Mercury
mutual reception, esoterically I have a Saturn Venus mutual reception, and hierarchally I
have Venus in Capricorn. thanks for the great article :-)

SATURN TRANSITS/span> (8-2011): Saturn transits are not esoteric. Saturn transits work
at the 3-dimensional, material level. When in aspect to itself, it is a time to (re)negotiate
your responsibilities with other, remembering to be fair to yourself (Saturn in Libra).
Erin Sullivan has an excellent book on Saturn Transits.

What is your interpretation of Saturn in the 12th, esoterically speaking ?
E.g. In respect of the ―guinea pig‖ concept: In facing ones own past fears and going within,
others can helped in a similar way as a result?
The usual interpretations describe doom and gloom for this position.
Incidentally, my Saturn is 27 deg 51 Gemini in the 12th, and conjunct ASC (2 deg Cancer).

SATURN IN LIBRA: Do it because of others – sacrificing self in order to work with the
whole, seeing the big picture, coordinating, the gestalt.
I have Saturn Libra 4th Virgo on the cusp of 4th… SO Im supposed to be sacrificing
myself for the whole?
4. Lynn Koiner Says:

DAVID (11-2013): I would not emphasize the word sacrifice but Saturn in Libra functions
best when organized and coordinates with others.
ESOTERIC 4th: This House rules environmental issues, the environments in which people
lives, humanitarian issues connected with disasters of nature.
When I began traveling to Europe, I found people who looked exactly like people I knew in
America. I found the astrological connection to be with the 4th House…that there must be
some ancient, ancestral connection with each other. This House, with the Fixed Star,
Antares (9° Sagittarius), rules the Root Chakra – our rootedness to the planet. When
disturbed, our immune system is affected. The House position of Antares shows where we
can feel rooted. This could be helpful for Immune System diseases. Caroline Myss wrote
that, when there is a sickness in society, there is some global sickness. During WWI, there
was the Great Influenza. During the Great Depression, there was polio. When the
economy improved after WWII, a cure for polio was discovered. The 4th House rules
grass-roots political movements and one who always opposes those in office. Spiritually,
the 4th is associated with nurturing the very young and very old, visiting and working with
the elderly, halfway houses, AA programs, day care centers, services to improving the
quality of life for the less fortunate and improving the ecology and environment where
you live. This is a House that rules grass roots politics, as well as environmental issues.
One environmentalist in Prag has Virgo rising but the Moon is in the 2nd House in Libra.
Mars and Saturn are in the 4th but not connected to Soul’s Purpose – this means that it is
a vehicle for her anger from her childhood.
NOTE: I have Antares in my 4th House and I need a permanent home that is always there
for me. To live in an apartment and not have a place of my own, I found feel ungrounded
and disconnected and, surely, my own immune system would suffer. One student said that
she only needed a home that was a safe haven for her, to feel connected to this planet.

NICHOLAS HALL (11-2013): I will post my interpretation of the 12th House and I hope
this helps with the interpretation.
Saturn in late degrees always needs to work independently and they are often self-
employed – or they work independently within an organization, simply because they do not
trust the System.
TWELFTH HOUSE: Qualities deemed intolerable by the parents so we learned to repress
these qualities. It is difficult to express the energy of the planet at the personality level so it
can only be expressed or cultivated through the career and worldly interaction. It is what
we keep from ourselves…and this can bring us great sorrow. It does have a connection with
past life issues that impact us now. Gina Cerminara’s Many Mansions I & II give good
examples of past life issues and possibilities. I have Mercury in Leo in 12th – an error in
judgment from a past life makes me afraid of making certain decisions, possibly fearing
that thousands may die if I decide badly. Bush has this in the 1st so he is making these
mistakes now. People with planets in the 12th House need private time. Especially with the
Sun here, these people can not be ON 24/7. They need to get away. When others get noisy
or aggressive, these people get quiet.
