Have you ever experienced the repeated delays, pressures, and disappointment associated with Saturn's transits and cycles? This classic astrology text, revered by both beginning and professional astrologers alike, offers a fresh perspective on how to handle the influence of this much-maligned astrological symbol.
World-famous astrologer and Jungian analyst Liz Greene brings her unique psychological approach to Saturn, showing us how the frustrating experiences connected to this planet can be turned into opportunities for greater insight and meaning in our lives. Saturn, she says, symbolizes a psychic process--one that allows us to utilize the experience of pain for self-discovery and greater understanding.
Greene traces the character of this most important planet through sign, house, aspect, synastry, and its role in mythology. She offers a brilliant analysis of Saturn to reveal the face of the 'Initiator' who, for the price of our honesty, offers us greater consciousness, self-understanding, and, eventually, freedom.
This 35th-anniversary edition includes a new foreword by leading astrologer and author Robert Hand.
Staff Pick: "Saturn's looming presence in my natal chart brought me to this book, and I'm so glad it did. While this great big malefic planet often feels like endless doom and gloom, the truth is Saturn is one of our greatest teachers. Liz Greene's writing has a serious Jungian psychological influence and can be very dense, I tend to take her books in bite-size pieces instead of one big swallow and really chew on what I'm reading. The language is dated but the gems I've found in these pages make it all worthwhile." - Keisha
