Modern astrology is so popular that we can find paradoxes when the classical basics are missing.
p>One of these is Saturn’s focus on science and technology. According to classical astrology, Saturn is concerned with science and technology, not just from its Aquarius aspect but also from its Capricorn aspect. In fact, I’ve had many astrology students who have shown no surprise when I mention Capricorn. In such circumstances, however, we need to test this argument of old against the charts, so the information can stand up and avoid becoming lost in the dusty halls of time, only to be replaced by flawed knowledge…
I also tire of repeating the same things “parrot-fashion.” If you deviate from the popular culture, it seems like you favor a certain sign or planet, yet the reality is very different. The reasoning behind my desire to direct everyone toward a more experiential, questioning form of astrology is based on a wish for objectivity and a withdrawal from subjectivity. I could very well choose to boast about my Uranus and Aquarius Mars making a triangle with the Sun, but it wouldn’t reflect the reality of the matter.
Naturally, my lazy Pisces Mercury will get cozy and write this article. It will only link with those who connect with technology and Uranus and therefore gain (Saturn’s) time.
There are many misconceptions about Saturn and Capricorn these days. Many people don’t understand that heavenly bodies and signs are “headlines,” and astrology has very ancient foundations. This is especially true in the case of Saturn and Capricorn. For example, they know that Saturn represents limitation, but they don’t realize it is also about the removal of limitations. However, astrology has its headlines. If Libra is balance, it is also unbalanced at the same time. If Pisces is secrecy, it is also the exposure of secrets, and we astrologers use these headlines when we make predictions. Every one of them is an “unexceptional” headline. What’s more, Capricorn does not have a single ruler—it also has Mars as a culmination ruler. In the grading of nobility, rulers have +5, while culminations have +4. Because of this, in almuten calculations, the owner of a house may be its culmination rather than its ruler!
It is essential for anyone wishing to learn astrology to understand this important basis. There is also, of course, experience, but I don’t even think I need to explain the importance of experience, so let’s continue with some examples.
On July 4, 2012, when CERN declared they may have discovered a particle that could be the Higgs Boson, I said it really was the Higgs Boson based on my research data. At that moment, the Moon, the dispositor of the chart lord, was in the Capricorn sign in its chart. On March 14, 2013, eight months after my prediction, the particle was confirmed as the Higgs Boson. If I had considered Uranus as science and technology, the t-square it had with the Sun and Pluto may have led me to a mistaken conclusion. In my inexperienced days, I made many mistakes like this.
The Saturn V was a disposable rocket made by the USA to carry astronauts into space. It was used in NASA’s Apollo and Skylab programs between 1967 and 1973. NASA launched this multi-phased, liquid-fueled vehicle 13 times from Kennedy Science Station, never once losing any crew or cargo. It is the longest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket that has ever been used. It remains the only launch vehicle capable of carrying humans beyond Earth’s orbit. When Saturn V was first launched, Scorpio was on the rise and Mars, the ruler of Scorpio, was in a mutual reception with Saturn. If we remember rightly, Mars and Saturn are the two rulers of Capricorn.
When astrologers associate genius with Aquarius and Uranus, I think they must have just checked a few charts. When I look at the charts of geniuses and great scientists, I see Saturn in corner houses more frequently than Uranus. Uranus, meanwhile, can always be found somewhere else, usually a place I wouldn’t associate with genius at all. It may represent recognition, fame, or even craziness, and that is fine. The Saturns of Isaac Asimov, Tycho Brahe, Nicolas Copernicus, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Michelangelo, Carl Sagan, Leonardo Da Vinci, Paracelsus, Sherlock Holmes, and Mimar Sinan are all at the corner. Mars is also associated with genius, and it is no coincidence how it is located in the Arabic points about genius. Hakan E. Kayıoglu will be publishing a research article about this subject, so I won’t include Mars in the discussion here. The Mensa member Kayıoglu can explain Saturn in the corner house better than I could, and you can read more on http://astroturkiye.com/house-strength-of-the-part-of-reasoning-and-iq-statistics/
(Note: I should clarify that not every Saturn in a corner house indicates a genius. You should not consider it so simply. It’s like how smoking may cause cancer, but not all smokers get it. Saturn in the corner house can make some people geniuses, but it can also make some people title-obsessed or able to bear heavy responsibility. In conclusion, Saturn needs to be interpreted. There are various other indications of genius, and in the charts I’ve checked, Uranus unfortunately tells me very little about this subject. Shame, because I would have like to have boasted about my Uranus being in an exact triangle with my Sun. )
Charts of the Astronauts
When we’re talking about science, another subject related to Uranus is of course space. I examined the data of 78 astronauts from the Astrodatabank of astro.com. In the articles I’ve written over the years, I’ve related space to the sign of Pisces, because Pisces involves nothingness, the unknown, the unreachable, and emptiness. It seems I was not wrong, because 16 of the 78 astronauts were Pisces. In all probability, this should have been six or seven instead. Pisceans are two and a half times more likely to reach space. Meanwhile, only six were born under Aquarius and only one was a Sagittarian.
Now let’s talk about the Saturn part of it, because first of all, being an astronaut requires more comprehension about science and especially technology than any Earth-based scientist. When it comes to fame and reputation, these people are hailed as national heroes, while the Sun provides certain angles regarding space and technology. Just like how we see Sun-Mars angles 3.2 times more than expected in Formula 1 champions, in the astronauts’ charts, we often see a celestial body that represents space and technology in relation to the Sun. As a classical astrologer, I see it also. In 48 of the 78 astronauts, a Sun-Saturn angle is present. In the astronauts’ charts, neither Aquarius nor Uranus parameters are present. Of course, we expect Uranus at some points, because even though we classical astrologers do not relate Uranus with technology and science, we relate the collective celestial bodies with attributes such as the diminishment of the world, fame, and collective participation. This is why the Sun-Uranus triangle in the chart of the astronaut who first stepped on the Moon, which we can observe easily from the Earth’s surface, is reasonable, yet there are no great concepts linking science and technology to it…
Judaism is ruled by Saturn. Science and technology has been a strength of the Jews for a long time. Look at the innovative companies of Silicon Valley and the big technology companies. Jews have made substantial contributions to humanity in many areas, including scientific disciplines, art, politics, and business. More Jews have won the Nobel Prize than you would expect given the relatively small Jewish population. Thank about Einstein, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, William Herschel (the astrologer who discovered Uranus—yes, he also wrote a book for astrologers), and countless other geniuses. This race is often unjustly despised, a victim of conspiracy theories and even genocide. This is very convenient for what people are trying to do to Saturn. These days, we approach Saturn as being fascist toward the Jews, by not using the positive indications but rather ignoring them.
The German retail chain Saturn has sold electronics and technological devices for years. After all, the Capricorn stellium is in the sixth house of the Germans. Is there any need to dispute their technological prowess?
General Motors introduced a new technological point of view with its Saturn brand. In the US market, this company managed to sell hundreds of thousands of cars a year by applying four chassis and three motors to a single model for 24 years. When it built its factory, the crew moved millions of tons of dirt and constructed the factory underground to avoid ruining the natural view. None of its subsidiaries sold to other regions, with the exception of Canada and Hong Kong, so it would not need to compromise customer satisfaction. It also barely ran any commercials. Its Sun is in Capricorn, and it makes a sextile with Saturn.
Should we go a little more crazy now?
Works of Science Fiction
According to many people, the best works of science fiction include Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, and Star Wars. The accepted god of Science Fiction is Isaac Asimov, who was of Jewish origin.
Isaac Asimov was from a Capricorn Sun, with this Sun being in an exact triangle angle with Saturn (the culmination of the Capricorn sign squared with Mars).
The Sun of Battlestar Galactica (the recent version) is squared with Saturn (also exactly). (For the old series, Saturn is under the Sun’s rays.) The culmination of the Capricorn sign is also in conjunction with Mars. This work also includes astrology. The 12 human colonies and the cylons (a robot race, some in human disguise) are aligned astrologically, and the spaceship Galactica belonged to the central world of these colonies, Caprica (from Capricorn). There was also a spinoff from this series named Caprica, which of course derives from Capricorn…
For Star Wars, the Sun is in conjunction with Jupiter and Leo is sextiled with Saturn.
When Dr. Who was first shown, Aquarius Saturn was on top. Those who have watched Dr. Who should know it’s somewhat crazier than most science fiction shows. Even though I’m a big science fiction fan, I only watched it at the strong insistence of Devrim Yılmazer. There are completely over-the-top elements in this series, and these aren’t always appreciated in science fiction, such as time travelling in a police telephone box. Yet it also features more acceptable elements. By the way, the “Doctor” is a time (Saturn) lord.
Some 12 actors have played Dr. Who, and I’ve examined all their charts together with Devrim Yılmazer. We saw the rulers of Capricorn, Mars, and Saturn. (Both of our Moons are squared with Leo and Neptune and Uranus triangulated with a Pisces Sun in conjunction, so our entertainment preferences are very different, shadowed by Virgo, and yes, excessive.) Note that when I saw Aquarius and Capricorn, I’ve wrote it down. If you don’t see it below, it means we didn’t see them in related places.
The very first doctor, William Hartnell: Mars and Saturn conjunction in Pisces (the Sun is at Capricorn and sextiled to the related conjunction).
Peter Capaldi: Saturn and Mars sextile (the Sun is triangulated with Saturn and sextiled with Mars).
Matt Smith: Mars and Saturn sextile (the Sun is in conjunction with Saturn).
David Tennant: Mars and Saturn triangle (the Sun is squared with Mars in Capricorn).
Christopher Eccleston: Sun/Saturn/Mars conjunction in Aquarius.
Paul McGann: Sun and Mars conjunction in Scorpio (a high orb sextile with Saturn).
Sylvester McCoy: Sun is sextiled with Saturn and squared with Mars.
Colin Baker: Sun and Saturn conjunction and sextile with Mars.
Peter Davison: Sun is in conjunction with Mars, unrelated to Saturn.
Tom Baker: Sun/Mars/Saturn Aquarius stellium.
Jon Pertwee: Mars and Saturn sextile (the Sun is in conjunction with Mars, with a high orb).
Patrick Troughton: Mars and Saturn sextile (the Sun has no relation to this double other than being at Aries).
By the way, The Matrix was also a very successful science fiction movie. It would be unfair not to mention its contrast to Mars and Saturn and its Aries Sun.
Capricorn: The Magic of the Old Science Today…
My astrology adventure continues to weed out my old mistakes and the nonsense I’ve read as I try to find new, practical techniques. For this reason, I try to focus my articles on common mistakes rather than the well-known, often repeated patterns by detailing new techniques and giving different points of view that may be helpful. After all, many people write about the established, classical patterns. As astrology develops and grows, it becomes more susceptible to mistakes. Thankfully, we have curious minds and eyes that can perceive what is being said when we look at a chart.
I often mentioned coincidental symbolisms in my previous articles. Unfortunately, astrology is full of these. For example, the Aquarius Jupiter of Einstein in the ninth house indicates science and his large number of articles, and maybe those of his physicist wife? Einstein wrote some 300 articles, but only four of them changed the world. What’s more, there are more than a few scientists who claim that their spouses contributed. We can see this astrologically. Einstein’s physicist wife is represented in her chart with a mutual Mars and Saturn. For this reason, we must try to reach the same solutions with the same technique when we evaluate every chart individually, or we will never notice our own mistakes. We would look at the charts. We would make indistinct, psychological speeches and hopefully expect some intuition. In the driving seat of astrology, there should be knowledge rather than intuition. If the knowledge is in control, intuition can work safely in comfort. When the intuition is in control, however, you have a position that’s not comfortable at all and leads to mistakes. See here for a previous article I wrote on knowledge and intuition.
This is what is written in my resume: Trying, failing, trying again, failing again, and trying yet again has become a lifelong goal. As long as you have the will to keep trying, failure is nothing more than the beginning of an entertaining adventure.
I think everyone who has reached this point in the article will agree that astrology is the most entertaining subject in the world. We need curious and inquisitive astrology lovers on the borders of science rather than selling vague prophecies through the media. My ninth house Aquarius Mars wants an army of them…
