Transiting Saturn in Aquarius Brainstorm

Transiting Saturn in Aquarius Brainstorm


hoose your friends wisely. It’s time for quality friends. It’s time to find friends who have the same ideals as you and who envision a future with you in it. It’s time to associate with people who speak the truth and who have a sense of loyalty and integrity. It’s time to hang out with people who give you the freedom to be yourself and who don’t use guilt tactics or manipulation strategies to get you to do what they want. It’s time to associate with people who value your right to be yourself as much as they value their right to be themselves. It’s time to give everybody some breathing room. Mind your own business. Give people some space to live their lives. Be a good friend. The consequences of the company you keep. Take responsibility for your half of the friendship. Take responsibility for your role in the groups you’re involved with. Social conscience. Commit to your vision of the future.

The Water-Bearer’s mortal enemy is the tribal instinct. … To conquer that tribal instinct, the Water-Bearer must cultivate an absolute loyalty to truth.
― Steven Forrest, The Inner Sky: The Dynamic New Astrology for Everyone

Be cautious about being a mindless follower of celebrity personalities. Be careful about associating with groups that want you to compromise your personal integrity. Be careful about bending your ideals to fit into a movement. Join a herd at your own risk. Groups and clubs and organizations feel heavy and burdensome. Be true to who you are. Keep a cool head. “Like” things because YOU like them, not because 95,000 other people like them.

Pulling back from groups and associations to maintain your personal integrity. Finding that you are compelled to separate yourself from the pack. Sensing a strong conformist overtone in the groups you belong to. Realizing that some of your ideals and principles do NOT blend with the movements and groups you’re a part of. Sensing the differences between people who claim to be on the same side. Standing back. Standing apart. Separating yourself from extremists. Separating yourself from cuckoo people. Leaving the crowd. Leaving the fray.

Isolated genius. Intellectual hermit. It’s hard to bond. Feeling isolated, alone, and alienated by the very people who are supposed to share your ideals, hopes and dreams.”Social proof” becomes the standard, in a cold, unfeeling, rational and isolating way.

The rules of social media. Follow these rules, or get banned from Twitter. Follow these rules, or get blocked on Facebook. Please read our new rules. The rules of group engagement. The rules of friendship. The rules of equality. The rules of being human. Real humans be like this.

The limits of humanitarianism. The limits of feelings of brotherhood. The limits of friendliness. Friendships have limits. How far are you willing to stick your neck out for someone? Where does integration with the collective end? Where do you find yourself no longer relating to collective political views and group visions? How serious are you about your committee’s vision? How serious are you about your team’s mission statement? Where do you draw the line? What are the long term consequences of being involved with your groups and organizations? Where are they leading you?

What’s the difference between a movement and a mob? Where’s your individual identity? Are your groups ignoring what you bring to the table on a personal level? Lack of interest in individual people. Lumping everybody together. YOU’RE a Millennial, the end. YOU’RE a Boomer, the end. It’s hard to be different now. It’s hard to be unique. It’s hard to stand out. Putting a lot of time and effort into being different. Stubborn refusal to have anything in common with anyone. Be sure to check off all the boxes to make sure you’re standing out. Here’s the step-by-step plan, tried and tested by experts, on how to be unique. Will the real humans please stand up? Who are real people? What are real human values?

Aquarius is the sign of the individual as a cooperative unit of the group. It is a sign in which, theoretically at least, the individual ego and its needs are subordinated to those of the larger social unit of which the individual is a part.
– Robert Hand, Horoscope Symbols

The rules for being an outsider. The rules on being progressive.  Will the real progressives please stand up? Restrictions on progress. The rules of the future. Halting progress. Stumbling blocks to equality. There’s no space. There’s no space for people. We’re running out of space.

Limited freedom. Restricted circulation. Limited populations.  The test of originality. The test of being unique. The test of nonconformity. Can you resist the pressure to join a crowd? Do you feel pressured to join a movement or cause? Are you someone who normally joins movements and causes? Alienation. Feeling more alone than ever. You’ve been blocked. Access revoked. Where are the boundaries of your social group? How far out can you go before they ostracize you? Are your progressive friends becoming intolerant? Having friends is a burden.

The cause gets real. The real radical. The real revolution. Blocked intelligence. Blocked genius. Blocked individual expression. Injunctions against groups. Putting limits on mass gatherings. Putting limits on mass technologies. The realities of being involved in movements. Blocking technologies. Limited access to computers. Limited access to progress. Limited access to internet. Cyberspace gets smaller. The limits of technology. The rules of technology. Traditional technologies. Old technology. Ham radios. Morse code. Smoke signals.

Clearly defined and restricted vision. Isolated fringe groups. Fringe groups with rules and regulations. If you want to fit in with this progressive ideology, then you have to follow these rules. Progressive people are like this. Forward thinking is like this. Read and sign our manifesto. Take our oath. Sign our petition. Commit to our cause. Swear an allegiance. What’s your name again? Question people outside our cause. Limited access to outsiders. What are the limits of progress? What are the real goals of progress? Limiting your circle of friends. If you want to be friends with this group of people, then you can’t be friends with that group of people. Members-only groups. Member screening. Member standards. Here are the criteria to be a member of our group.

Reality is created by a process of exclusion, of eliminating other possible realities. This aspect of exclusion is one of Saturn’s most important attributes.
– Robert Hand, Horoscope Symbols

Crowd shaming. Where is the social proof that you are progressive? Prove your ideals. Prove your vision. You’re not doing enough. Maintaining your rebel status. Progressive conformist. Desperately trying to be cutting-edge and avant garde. Rote rebel. Rebel de facto. Time to rebel! The rebel bell is ringing! Here are the rules of the rebellion. Here are the rules of the revolution. It’s going to happen like this. Lack of a real revolution. The revolution got a little stifling, didn’t it? Geez, revolution is a lot of work. Real progress. Step by step progress for the future, not a flash in the pan.

You’re going to have to work really hard to see the progress you want. You’re going to have to work really hard to see your ideals manifest. There’s going to be a lot of stumbling blocks on the way to your Utopian vision. Logic dominates. Myopic. Your circle of friends just got smaller. You can’t hang around with people who don’t share your vision of progress. Not open to outsiders or outliers. Define progress. Define Utopia. Define weird. Define genius. Define outcast. Define rebel. Define the future. Define human.

The Scientist. Testing your hypothesis. The Scientific Method. Cold, hard logic. The cold, hard facts. Testing the truth. Prove it. Where is your logical proof? Scientific discipline. It’s the whole process that matters, not just the end result. Take responsibility for your ideal vision of the future. What will you actually do to make your vision a reality? What is your version of Utopia? What have you actually done to create your ideal future? What can you actually do to make tomorrow a better world?

Astrological standards. Astrological testing. The rules of astrology. Testing the truth of astrology. Hard science. Master of astrology. Astrology gets limited. Astrology, you’ve lost that loving feeling. Real astrology. Scientific astrology. Lack of faith in astrology. Cold, hard, rational astrology. This is the method you must use. Putting the science back in astrology. Putting the astronomy back into astrology. Astrology be like this, for real. Get your weird facts straight. Git ur wyrd fax str8t. There are rules to being weird, you know.

A utopia (/juːˈtoʊpiə/ yoo-TOH-pee-ə) is an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens.
