“Self-respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.” Abraham Joshua Heschel


The Moon continues in “entrepreneurial” Aries, until tonight, so risk-taking is still very much on our radar today. The Virgo Sun’s sextile to “disciplined” Saturn in Scorpio (11:03 am EDT) is also very supportive here because not only does it inspire us to want to do and be our best, it can also help us to be much more calculating and strategic with the application of our energies. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said: “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” Likewise, today’s “do battle” Aries Moon is potentially elevated by the “due diligence” mindset of Sun-Saturn.

Also, this is perhaps a wonderful time to reflect upon our own inner well of accumulated wisdom, based upon our own practical experience (Saturn) on the planet. Oprah Winfrey often uses the phrase “what I know for sure.” Sun-Saturn epitomizes that same sentiment – it is “what we know for sure” about life. Too, we could also maybe put a little of what we know into practice now by perhaps offering to play a mentoring role to somebody else. Or, by allowing another to assume that same role with us. Also, by sharing our stories and personal experiences with each other, we’re not only potentially forging a stronger, more intimate connecting link between us, we’re also able to see, with greater clarity, just how far we’ve come on our journey – as well as what our next steps, should likely be.

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” George Orwell.

Saturn symbolizes older persons, grandparents, authority / father figures; also customs and tradition. It is also widely regarded as the “Lord of Karma.”
