Saturn raises apprehensions wherever it goes, not least as it lingers on the one spot for weeks and months, so you get used to scaring yourself off in one kind of way, even if you'd rather be apprehensive about something else. Luckily, the Dreaded Planet only comes through Your Starsign 29 years and a bit later. Western Astrologers call this a Saturn Return—rounding it off to 30 to keep it simple and forget about it as soon as possible.
Only, this is the most paradoxical character you'll ever come across—worse when it comes thru Virgo, too. Saturn is self-contradicting in every respect, nothing about it ever is so simple as to let you walk away feeling elated, even when you get the point. As to Virgo, if you were looking for a symbol of contradiction, you've just found it.
Saturn is the fundamental planet, referring to anything primordial, basic essentials, building blocks, primary considerations, frameworks, scaffolding, bone-frame, sedimentation; it is cold, icy, frugal, cohesive, consolidating, disciplinarian, stiff and stern. Virgo is the busiest Starsign, having a connection in almost every practical department, anything to do with work, service, duty, hygiene, etc. The premier Medical Starsign is meticulous, analytical, critical, methodical, laborious, industrious, efficient and utilitarian. It also represents profit.
You could predict events just by combining these two sets of keywords—say, cold and work, in which case you can anticipate sobering events affecting Workers and leading to unrest or a series of strikes. But that won't tell you what you need to know to make it a practical information.
Many other factors enter into an astrological forecast. For instance, Saturn may be with Mercury today and with the Moon tomorrow. Lineup permutations are endless, just in a month. It pays to have a method in view of so many variables. To that effect we note that any lineup involving Saturn must come through Virgo until 2010, except for a short break. Another central factor is that we are dealing with a long-term agenda, so we could have many disputes in that time, as opposed to a weekend strike.
As explained in the extended version of this text, Saturn and Virgo focus on similar issues, which is auspicious for prospects of cooperation in this period. Trouble is, they seem to focus on anything that matters between the two of them—Industrial Relations, Climate Change, Conservation of Resources, Natural Heritage, Education, Analysis, Civil Servants, to name a few.
There is no way of putting such an agenda into a quick summary. However it does help to know that Saturn always indicates contraction and shortage, rather than abundance—unless otherwise specified. Hence some of the above Departments will come under fire at this time, due to shortage of funds rather than to corruption as such. You can expect a number of key people in the Education System (Virgo) to be compromised in a scandal, but not that anyone might be especially greedy, but rather because they may have proved a little too tight (Saturn is avaricious).
Then you'll be growing angry and start looking for culprits—because it comes down to that, we live in a greedy world and some people will stop at nothing to promote their own interests, they'll even steal from the destitute.
It's always the same story. However these 30-year repeating lineups are unlikely to run into the same conclusions and leave it at that, as they specialise in the meaning behind a word and will try to make you aware of a difference between greed and miscalculation, in this instance. These lineups will try to make you realise that the fellow who seemingly gets away with murder is in fact facing consequences far greater than his crime, because greed is short-sighted.
Anyone found misdirecting Humanitarian Relief funds under these lineups is more than likely to meet unusually severe punishment.
