Since the current transits fall on the extremely complex side and out of my realm of understanding, I have tapped into Saint Thomas of Aquinas, for whatever reason has appeared as my astrological guide. The individuals between age 28 and 29 could begin a Saturn Return now as well, depending on the degree of Saturn in their natal charts, so much shifting and transformation happens within and outside of these individuals whether or not they think they are ready. Since Saturn remains in Scorpio for 2 1/2 years, the individuals born in the later degrees of Pluto in Scorpio (1990s) won't feel the impact of Saturn until later in the cycle, but if they also have other planets in Scorpio, especially personal planets, then they could take these transformative, do-or-die energies personally.
So what's happening exactly? Saint Thomas tells me that this powerhouse generation (double-Scorpio and triple that if the individual's Sun, Moon, or AC fall in Scorpio) came to transform the entire planet by uncovering first the dark forces at play behind the scenes. These are your late Indigo Children. I doubt they are Crystal or Rainbow Children since these souls fall more on the gentle and joyful side, more likely born under Pluto in Sagittarius, than Pluto in Scorpio, which would be a challenging and brutal placement for these super-sensitive souls.

Depending on the parenting these 20-somethings received, they will either take on the role of victim-martyr or act courageously like the former CNN Reporter Amber Lyon, who Doreen Virtue recently brought to my attention on her HayHouse Radio show this past week. The reporter Lyon uncovered lies and censorship in the media and the truth about Iran that has been suppressed in the news. You can find out more about Lyon and other Indigo Children by typing in their names on YouTube or Google.
Towards the end of October, the Sun moves into Scorpio while Mars, Mercury, North Node and Saturn transit in Scorpio. While the personal planets move through Scorpio within one to two months (for Mars), we will feel heaviness of Scorpio through December 2012. Mercury will retrograde through Scorpio from November 7 until November 27. We will experience 3 eclipses (November 13, November 28, and December 13, the first one involving Scorpio). Then on the Winter/Summer Solstice, Jupiter in Gemini 8 degrees, Sat/Mars in Scorpio 8 degrees and Pluto in Capricorn form a yod configuration which we are all going to feel in the sense of dead ends. Those things that worked for us before will no longer work, on both individual and global levels, but as astrologer Carl Boudreaux says in his YouTube video for October and months ahead, with Saturn in Scorpio change comes slowly and cautiously. Will we have the collective patience to get through this tense and unprecedented time?
As you can see, we had better get comfortable with Scorpio, Pluto, and Saturn. Another thing to point out is that the slow moving Neptune is moving direct again and moves one degree on December 29, just before the year ends. Neptune no longer at 0 degrees pushes its energy forward and dissolves what it touches. So as we see transformation in the world, we will also see the disappearance of tangible things perhaps due to floods, hurricanes and other types of watery events or we will see the dissolution of intangible thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and patterns. We will either feel fearful and escape into addictions or allow this new flow of energy to direct us to soul ascension. This will depend on the amount of soul and spiritual work of an individual or a community. If you haven't done the work, then you could find yourself in the proverbial lemmings flying over a cliff scenario. This is not a time to seek saviors or follow those with blind ambition.
In saying this, I feel trepidation towards anyone worshipping political or other figures at this time, and I ask those Obama worshippers to wake up and smell the coffee. It's not President Obama so much that has caused this savior worship problem, but people's escapism and inability to take responsibility for their lives. With Saturn in Scorpio this type of behavior comes under scrutiny, thankfully. Worshipping other humans leads to disastrous results at worst and disappointment and disillusionment at best. This is the message of Neptune at one degree Pisces, which trines Saturn in Scorpio.
Saturn in Scorpio is no laughing matter, even if you filled yourself with Jupiter's laughing gas. There is no escaping the inevitable which now stares us in the face. As soon as, the Sun leaves Libra and moves into Scorpio, we will need to face some hard and harsh issues, mainly how we live on the planet and the grave damage we have caused. We will learn about things that we tried to keep buried under the rug, but now crawl out from out of the rug and slither across the floor or fly across the room. Those institutions we held dear to our hearts crumble now, leaving us standing there with our minds disbelieving and our mouths gaping. We stand at the proverbial and prophetic crossroads that the ancients predicted. We too are ancient souls and to get in touch with that, we need to revisit previous lives and rescript our future. Do you have what it takes to brave the darker days ahead? Remember the darkest part of the night happens before dawn. It's just a matter of how long it will take for dawn to break on the horizon and for us to embrace peace.
