Saturn Crone

Since I started this blog and website some years ago, I have written more about Saturn than any other topic. This page is an annotated list of my Saturn posts, with special emphasis on my exploration of Saturn as feminine and Old Crone figure.

The Saturn Crone Project

Saturn as Feminine, Part One. This is the first post in the series from February 2016, where I examine a text from the Hellenistic astrologer Dorotheus which lists Saturn as a feminine planet, and examine how that fits with the system of traditional astrology.

Saturn as Feminine and Crone. The second in the series, where I go further into the symbolism of Saturn as Feminine.

Wisdom of Saturn. This is a meditation on Saturn and spirituality, and on the particular kind of wisdom and compassion that grows out of coming to terms with suffering, aging and death.

Living Crone. In this post I examine an example of Saturn as an old Crone figure, a spiritual guide and mentor, in the context of a chart interpretation.

The Saturn Crone Project. This post sums up my writing and research on the topic up through August 2016. Here I also ask for help and input from my readers. I want to talk to people who have living examples of Saturn as a Crone figure in their own charts and lives.

Saturn and Qabalah. Tying the symbolism of Saturn in with the Great Cosmic Mother and Divine Feminine in Qabalah.

Other Writing on Saturn

Second Saturn Return and the Velveteen Rabbit. This is one of my personal favorite posts. I examine the connection between Saturn, the process of aging, and that wonderful process that The Velveteen Rabbit describes as, Becoming Real.

Saturn and Pluto. In this piece I look at how the meanings which are now attributed to the planet Pluto were originally associated with Saturn.

Two Saturn Returns. This post examines the series of very striking parallels in major areas of my life, between my first and second Saturn returns. I find the connections to be very striking and kind of eerie.

Letting Death Back In. A lot of dealing with Saturn involves coming to terms with death, and I meditate here on the need to bring the subject of death back into our astrology work.
