Saturn In Sagittarius: Don’t Be Afraid Of Your Freedom!

posted by Matthew Currie

So: what will happen to you when Saturn re-enters Sagittarius on September 17th and stays there until December 2017?

Astrologers have an understandable tendency to generalize when it comes to the nature of a given planet in a given Sign. That’s understandable, because generalizations are a useful way to grasp complex ideas, even if generalizations are inherently less helpful when looking at individual cases. Saturn rules limitations and obstacles, and Scorpio is associated with sex and revenge. See how simple that is? But wait: before you start calling yourself an astrologer based on that simple an approach, you should probably stop and notice that in the last couple of years while Saturn was in Scorpio, not everyone caught an STD and/or assassinated their enemies. Likewise, just because Sagittarius rules travel and an interest in religion and/or philosophy doesn’t mean every train and airplane on Earth will crash into a church or a library in the next couple of years.

Whatever the Sign a planet is in, its greatest effect on you personally will depend on the House of your Birth Chart it is in, and the aspect it makes to your natal placements.  That always comes first and foremost above any pre-packaged, keyword-based “Planet A + Sign B = Result C” interpretation.

If you are fortunate enough to have been alive the last time Saturn passed through Sagittarius from November 1985 to February 1988 (with a bonus round in June-November 1988 thanks to a retrograde), then you’ve already experienced the effects of Saturn in Sagittarius… and (if you remember that as a difficult time in your life) you’ll be pleased to know that, generally speaking, Saturn transits are easier to deal with the second time around.

If you haven’t experienced Saturn in Sagittarius as an adult before (I don’t mean to discount the experience of toddlers, but odds are good your spouse didn’t leave you or you didn’t get fired when you were three years old, and a child’s conception of “good news” or “bad news” is usually a lot different than that of an adult), there are Saturn transits we know you will have regardless of when your birthday is in while Saturn is in Sagittarius based on your age group. I’ll be going into more detail about those in my next blog entry.

Mostly though, Sagittarius is known for its optimism and (as a result) a certain resilience. What’s less well known is that although Saturn is a real drag when it’s hitting you hard… it can also be a liberator. Saturn can wash you clean of your delusions and dysfunction and scrape the barnacles off of what you think your life is really about better than any other planet. All the logic of Mercury, the heartfelt pitches of The Moon, and all the prayers and affirmations of Neptune? Sometimes they won’t do you half as much good as the efficient jack-hammering you’ll get from a Saturn transit.

So: don’t be afraid of Saturn. And don’t be afraid of your freedom.

Is Astrology Hopeless?

posted by Matthew Currie

I speak to a lot of clients who are in the middle of a crisis, and that is to be expected. I’m at least as much a counselor as a “fortune teller” (ugh, how I hate that term!), and just as a doctor tends to see more people who are ill than healthy specimens, it’s understandable that I deal a lot with people who feel they have their backs against the wall, one way or another.

I initially trained to be a counselor. If you’ve even gone down that particular road with your problems, you know that it can help… but it can also take a long time with absolutely no guarantees. I became an astrologer in part because — although there are no absolute guarantees in life that I can give you any more than anyone else can — astrology can really cut through the nonsense.

Yeah, skeptics, I said it: astrology can really cut through the nonsense.

Astrology gives us a language by which we can understand ourselves and others, and can see the forces that have shaped us and the forces yet to come. There is always a comfort in knowing what kinds of things to expect, even if sometimes that means “more of the same” or possibly “it’s going to get worse.” Knowledge is power, after all, and what power on Earth is greater than (literally or figuratively) a weather forecast.

But: is there Hope in Astrology? Or is Astrology essentially… hopeless?

First of all: we are all subject to the forces around us. You can’t talk your way out of an earthquake. But we all have some degree of agency: the ability to choose how we deal with things. There’s some hope in knowing that, isn’t there?

It would be unethical of me, or of any professional adviser, to offer false hope. But the truth is: if a doctor tells you “that tumor is probably benign” or a lawyer tells you “I don’t think this guy suing you has a case,” they aren’t actually “giving you hope.” They are simply telling you the truth, and you can choose to be hopeful or not.

So: is there hope in getting a reading from an astrologer who knows what he or she is doing? Sure, just as much as getting a consultation from any expert. Ideally, what you will find is a useful truth upon which you can place your hope with some degree of confidence.

If you are on a cruise chip that is sinking, you can always hope for rescue… which is more than likely to come eventually. But I would politely suggest that clinging to the grand piano in the ballroom… even if you are hopeful that will help… isn’t likely to help you stay afloat.

When I do a reading for someone, I can see where and how life’s patterns emerge, when you would have started seeing their effects, and when those patterns will end and when new ones will begin. That alone can be of tremendous benefit in any situation you may be facing.

And, worst case scenario? I’m also pretty good at spotting where the lifeboats are, and how you can get to them.

Discount Ascension© Part 2: Frequently Asked Questions

posted by Matthew Currie

LAST TIME ON THIS BLOG: Your friendly neighborhood astrologer Matthew Currie was griping at length about New Age practitioners who tack “astrologer” onto their job description without really knowing much astrology, when he was suddenly struck on the head by a copy of Manly P. Hall’s The Secret Teachings of All Ages. At this point Matthew began to channel The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep, an ancient being of great spiritual power and the founder of Discount Ascension©, which embraces both lost ancient spiritual wisdom and modern culture into a single dynamic package designed to get you enlightened in a hurry.

What is Ascension?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Ascension is when you move upwards and onwards as a spiritual being. In past this has usually been achieved by doing something called “dying.” However in the last few decades some sources have marketed ate notion of Ascension that involves becoming a Being Of Light and leaping out of your body and leaving those other jerks on Earth far behind as you become a profound spiritual being. This will not only make you a supremely enlightened luminous being, but save you a small fortune on funeral expenses.

What is Discount Ascension©?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Discount Ascension© is different because it will cost you less and get you results sooner. By “cost less” I mean it won’t take all of your income, and by “sooner” remember that I speak as an Enlightened Being, and to us all points in time and space take place on a continuum called Real Soon Now.

Advertisement

What’s with the copyright symbol?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: It’s not a copyright symbol. It is an ancient Lemurian Glyph that contains a great deal of wisdom. The word it represents combines a number of concepts, including “unity with the divine,” “life purpose,” and “these statements are not legally actionable, so don’t even try.”

Why do I need to ascend?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: because as it stands right now your mind is trapped in your body.  Your body is a lumpy, squishy thing like a chrysalis. However, with the proper spiritual guidance, one day that chrysalis could break open and from within will emerge a beautiful rhinoceros.

Why not a beautiful butterfly?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Are you kidding me? Butterflies never get their way with anything. On the other hand only a maniac interferes with a rhinoceros. Honestly, which would you rather be?

What are the symptoms I may be ready to ascend?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Headache, nausea, stress, irritation, a curiosity about Ascension… or a lack of those symptoms, or some combination of the above. You won’t know for sure until you have booked your first session!

What about previous ascended masters like Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Batman…?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: There have been many messengers throughout human history, but as time goes on their essential messages get corrupted. Many religions that once respected peace have now been turned to conflict and warfare. Buddhism eschewed materialism, but you can spend thousand on Buddha trinkets now without ever meditating even once. And that whole current storyline where Bruce Wayne is happily adjusted and has retired and Commissioner Gordon is Batman now? That’s totally bogus, and in your heart you know it.

Have I had past lives?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Sure you have! Sign up for my exclusive course, “Oh No, Not This Crap Again!”

What about aliens?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Sure, all you want, why not? Sign up for my exclusive course, “Far Beyond TheRegular Weirdos: Maybe You’re One Too!”

Will you help me find my soulmate?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Yeah, you’ve got lots of those, no problem.

Will you help me find my Twin Flame?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Yes, and when you get sick of that one I’ll help you find another Twin Flame.

Advertisement

Um, okay, Will this at least help me get a date?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Are you flirting with me? Because that’s nice, but you’re already getting the maximum discount.

What about Earth changes? Will there be Earth changes?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: You bet! Big scary ones too! Part of becoming an enlightened master under discount ascension is the ability to stay afraid much of the time… specifically, by maintaining the fear that you haven’t ascended far enough or fast enough before a swarm of earthquakes or the poles reversing or a sharknado gets you.
Yes. I know. This is a shocking thing to hear from an Ascended Master, but I remind you that all ascended masters say shocking things sometimes. Jesus once said: “Let the dead bury their own dead.” Batman once said: “I’ve taken enough grief about calling my g—–n car the g—–n Batmobile. I’m the g—–n Batman and I can call my car whatever the hell I want to.” What’s truly shocking is that you haven’t sent me your donation yet.

What’s in it for you, Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep?
The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep sayeth: Most Ascended Masters become the focus of huge, wealthy global churches. All I am asking for is a three bedroom condo with a view and maid service. You get saved, and I pass the savings on to you!

Astrology And Discount Ascension©!

posted by Matthew Currie

It was recently pointed out to me that I am a part of something called “The New Age community.” This knowledge took me some time to process. it’s like being told that your neighborhood is technically Chinatown or Little Italy when you didn’t realize that.

If you are a part of a “community” like Chinatown or Little Italy, you will realize that geographic location is about all you have in common with everyone there… not even ethnicity necessarily. Tony is a great guy, but Giuseppe is a jerk… and stay the heck away from Paulie when he’s drinking. We are all individuals even though we are part of the same larger concept. It’s kind of like that.

Sometimes people will come to me with questions about UFOs or chakras or past life regression that I have zero expertise in, and I will gladly admit to that. However, it has come to my attention over the years that there are some practitioners of New Age Arts other than astrology who will pick up a copy or two of Dell Horoscope or breeze through a Sun Sign compatibility guide and then start billing themselves as a clairvoyant and an astrologer, or a tarot reader and an astrologer, or whatever.

Advertisement

To me this is not simply like a used car lot that also offers “free balloons for the kids.” It’s more like a used car lot that also offers Pap tests. There’s no reason why a person can’t be both a good tarot reader and be a decent astrologer, but too often practitioners of one predictive art will tack astrology on to the end of their job description based on very little experience.

I am reminded once of a trailer I saw at a County Fair that had a sign out front that announced psychic readings within, with individual charges for astrology and tarot and palm reading and clairvoyance all from the same practitioner. I was tempted at the time to go in and only offer up one palm to read and say something like “I can only afford a very limited future.”

Advertisement

Yes, some people know what they are doing with both tarot and astrology, or astrology and clairvoyance, or whatever… just as there are some people who are both doctors and engineers. But, you know… there are some people who make a living just by shoveling the same basic hoo-ha under more than one metaphysical banner.

So in light of this, I am now proud to announce that I will soon be offering classes on the brand new (yet really, really ancient) spiritual art of Discount Ascension ©, which I learned about from the Ascended Master whom I channel: The Right Reverend Rama Lama Ding Donghotep, who last walked our world in a fleshly form under the pseudonym of Jack Klugman.

NEXT TIME: you’ll have the rare and precious opportunity to enjoy the enlightening and liberated gift of Discount Ascension ©, which is far and away the most exciting and effective form of pre-Atlantean spiritual wisdom to have emerged in the last week, for ABSOLUTELY FREE (plus $8.95 shipping and handling)!  I hope you will all learn and grow from it, and will all enjoy sending me regular tithes as much as I will enjoy receiving them.
