Saturn in Pisces Poem

A Poem Using the Archetypes of Astrology

Note: The following is an astrologically inspired and informed poem about Saturn’s moving into — ingressing — Pisces on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 and its run through Pisces until it meets Neptune at the first degree of Aries in February 2026. Astrology can be used as an extremely vivid, insightful archetypal language and while I plan to continue writing essays about it, poetry-prose like this is another enlightening, mind-and-Soul-expanding way to engage with these archetypes and broaden one’s worldview. I hope you enjoy it!

If we could go back to
the first weekend of March 2023,
we’d find Father Time, Saturn,
the Taskmaster of Accountability,
diligently packing his bags,
not for the first time,
nor for the last.

It’s true Saturn has been
home for a while in his domiciles.
First in his Castle on Mt. Capricorn,
then in his Cloud Fortress in Aquarius.
A nefarious era, many say,
especially for those
who disobey rules and restrictions,
who question those who stop time
with no rhyme nor reason.
‘Tis the Season!
When Saturn stays in Capricorn and Aquarius
and especially when Pluto visits
and Saturn has a sour long-distance
communication breakdown with Uranus,
that rebel who always wants to progress too fast…
for Saturn’s taste at least.

And this time his stay
was made more nebulous
by Neptune’s squid ink,
sprayed from its 14-year swim in Pisces.
Reality shattering for some,
while enlightening for others.
A time when the blind could sometimes see
and the sighted believed
their blurred vision was not a delusion,
and that it was better than your illusion.
CONFUSION!!!
