Today I’d like to tell you about Saturn in Scorpio: Your Guide through the Dark, a new book by Mandi Lockley. It will do wonders to keep you on track during Saturn’s 2½ year transit through Scorpio.
You may recall that Mandi coordinated the series of Saturn articles in the 2010 Blogathon. We learn from her biography that she has an 8th house Capricorn Sun, and is therefore extremely well acquainted with Saturn and the Scorpion’s territory. From her keen understanding and life-long training in this arena, she offers up a treasure-trove of astrological wisdom.
We are first introduced to Saturn and then to Scorpio in the opening pages before Mandi masterfully weaves the Saturnian tapestry that hangs before us for the next few years.
On Saturn ~
“All physical barriers come under Saturn’s rulership including our skin, which is the literal limit of the physical body and the barrier between the self and the not-self. Fences, walls, locked doors and ‘keep out’ signs designed to deter the unauthorised and defend whatever is within, also come under Saturn’s symbolism. By extending this psychologically, we can see how Saturn has come to represent the limits of our ego consciousness, our self-imposed limitations, where we draw our emotional boundaries, where we hit psychological barriers and where we become defensive.”
On Scorpio ~
“A scorpion’s sting is one of nature’s great survival mechanisms. Not only does it allow the scorpion to immobilise its pray, it also provides the perfect defence against predators. The scorpion, like all of nature’s best survivors, won’t deploy its poisonous sting unless entirely necessary. To attack indiscriminately is a waste of its precious resources.”
Mandi takes us deep into our charts by exploring Saturn in Scorpio through the houses. This section of the book goes into great detail and differs from the usual cookbook interpretations of Saturn in Scorpio and Saturn in the houses. This is Saturn in Scorpio in the houses! You won’t get that in a cookbook. She also details aspects to all natal planets and includes an extended section on Saturn to Saturn transits and Saturn Returns.
Get this book! It will be a go to reference that you’ll return to again and again. And, it’s modestly priced at only $5.99 for the Kindle edition, which is alluring to the Saturn in all of us.
Fascinated by astrology most of her life, Mandi cast her first horoscope back in 1985. Latterly, she studied at The London School of Astrology for over three years and gained the school’s Certificate in 2005. She also studied under Noel Tyl between 2008 and 2010.
Committed to self development – emotionally, spiritually and intellectually – Mandi believes in doing her best to live her life true to herself and her life purpose, in service to others and in harmony with the cycles of the universe. These values are also the focus of her work with her clients.
