Saturn and Neptune Stationary

Saturn is the principle of constriction. Stationary Saturn is accompanied by feelings of restriction, of being trapped by circumstances. Neptune is slow, gradual change. Stationary Neptune can bring an awareness of a connection with other dimensional consciousness. It can also bring confusion, illusion, and delusion.


These two astrological giants are stationary in Pisces, both turning retrograde within a few days of one another. This is the opening chord of Saturn conjunct Neptune, a major planetary transit in effect from now to March 2027. During the years of this conjunction, mysteries will emerge from the unseen world and take earthly form, accompanied by a slow dissolving of existing forms long perceived as reality. This process will be both magical and unnerving.


In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Saturn is allied with Sobek, the Old King, the crocodile-headed god of the Nile. Saturn/Sobek is associated with our reptilian brain, the limbic system that is concerned with survival. This part of our brain sees change as a threat and wants everything to stay the same. Sobek’s primary teaching is “Surrender and Wait.”


Neptune is associated with Nephthys, Keeper of the Mysteries Behind the Veil. She beckons to us from beyond the mists and invites us to follow her into the mystery. We must trust her, yet this is hard for she is also an abandoner and betrayer. Her primary teaching is “Trust the Unknown.”


We stand on the cusp of a new way of being. All that we know will be gradually erased as we simultaneously emerge into a form better suited to the new world we are entering. “Trust the Process.”


Saturn/Sobek turns retrograde at Pisces 19°25’, June 29, 3:07 pm EDT.

Neptune/Nephthys turns retrograde at Pisces 29°55’, July 2, 6:40 am EDT.
