Ask Madam Lichtenstein - How Does Saturn in Scorpio Affect Me?

Tarot reader 1Alexandria, Va.: Hello Madam,

What does Saturn in Scorpio mean for me? I know that Saturn returns can be difficult, but it means something different this way, doesn't it?

I am female 7/21/69, 6:14 pm, Altoona, PA.

Thanks.

Charlene Lichtenstein: Saturn returns usually mean a return to the same position that saturn is in your birthchart and that happens every 28-30 years or so. So you are not going through a Saturn return.

Your natal saturn is 8 degrees of Taurus which makes a good aspect to this Saturn in Scorpio. I see this as a time of reaping your rewards. You may possibly have capricorn rising which places your natal saturn in your 5th house. Transiting saturn is in your 11th house. I see this to mean that the next three years or so can be a time of creativity and inspriation that can come to fruition through the help of friends and large social groups. It can catapult you into the next personal level of success. It won't be easy but you will feel very good about your accomplishments. 

Of course, you will have to put in the effort - saturn rewards those who work hard!

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
All of your professional efforts come to a head which can be a good thing for those Aries who have diligently built their personal brand and cultivated strong mentors. But for those who tried to slide by on a grin and cup of personal oil may find themselves in a hot frying pan. How confident so you feel? Or should I ask how hot....?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Travel may be in the cards but be sure you are not playing with a stacked deck. Taureans are ready to rumble. The fates are also ready to had you a surprise or two on your journey. So before you take to the open road, try to check your itinerary, your packed bags and all your arrangements twice. At very least it will be an unforgettable trip!

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Love and lust lift you off your feet and into the stratosphere now and why not? You are primed and ready for any adventure from a light flirtation to a walk down the aisle. But look before you leap, Gemini. The fates will offer you a big surprise when you least expect it. Keep an eye on friendships as signals may get crossed. Maybe that is your plan...?

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Both your relationships and your career could have their ups and downs and one side or the other demands too much of your time and attention. But take it all in stride. The fates are encouraging you to be more balanced in these areas. While it may seem romantic to take a long vacation and escape the day to day, try to stay focused in the here and now, Cancer.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
A variety of things could sap your energy now so be sure to pace yourself through any large project, whether for love, money or prestige. There is a lot on your plate, Leo. Avoid spillage by finding effective ways to de-stress, relax and recharge on an ongoing basis.  It could be as easy as regular meditation or perhaps something more physical. Hmmm.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Don’t be bogged down by creative blockage, Virgo. If you find yourself staring at the blank page wondering what comes next, don’t panic. There is something amazing waiting for you around the next corner. Could it be a wild thought, a crazy adventure, a zesty one nighter or a dreamy long term liaison?  All are possible. But carry cab fare just in case.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Try to postpone any major home projects this July. The fates conspire to turn any minor repair or renovation into a major restoration. Pipes and wires can get crossed. Family gets into your act and all of this adds extra stress on already frayed relationships. So pull out the deck chairs and get your feet up. Rearrange the deck chairs later this summer, Libra.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Anything you think or say could have momentous implications for you especially if it involves your job. So if you are mumbling under your breath about your boss or co-workers, give yourself a break and think happy thoughts. Scorpios are very strategic thinkers. Let yourself waft on a wave of mellow dreams. A fresh cocktail couldn’t hurt either.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Are you ready to splurge on a long desired object that you can barely afford? Better hold off on buying anything that is out of your budget, Sagittarius. This July you are apt to get into unnecessary debt that will be hard to dig out of. Find cheaper thrills. They say the best things in life are free. But then they also say you get what you pay for....Hmm.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Now may be the time for a totally new look for you -maybe a new wardrobe or even a haircut. Of course you may be perfectly happy with your current look ... which you might have had for years. There are folks gravitating into your social sphere. First impressions will be lasting impressions. Put your best foot forward any way you can. Don’t step in a puddle, Capricorn.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is something going on behind the scenes now, Aquarius. Is your intuition on target or are you getting static on the psychic line? Don’t react until you are sure you are receiving the correct signals. Then see what manifests and how it might impact your career and paycheck. It could be a big payoff. Or it could be a big move. Which way is up?

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
There is something just a little bit fun and crazy about your friends now. Enjoy their company, plan many pleasant festivities with them but don’t let them fill your head with dreams that are not based in any reality. Pisces have a tendency to build their foundations on wishes. Wishing is just the beginning. Now focus and build on solid rock.



Lucky Numbers for the Week of June 27, 2014

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of June 27- July 3, 2014:

1, 5, 9, 12, 16, 31, 70, 72

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month

Ask Madam Lichtenstein - What Went Wrong in My Marriage?

Tarot reader 1Salt Lake City, Utah: Dear Madam, My question is about my relationship with my ex-husband. What went wrong, were we just not compatible astrologically? Me-11/06/72, SLC, Ut., 7:02 pm. Him-11/05/69, Mt. Pleasant, Ut., no time. Thanks.

Charlene Lichtenstein: You have sun and moon in scorpio and venus in libra. He has sun in scorpio, moon in virgo and venus in libra.

You are both very intense people (sun sign) with very similiar love styles - diplomatic and charming. Interestingly, you are both less passionate in love relationships than you are in general. I wonder if similarities bred boredom? Emotionally you are a bubbling cauldrun (moon) while he may be more practical and precise. Your moon signs are compatible though so this could be a meeting of the hearts.

I would say that astrologically you two probably would have been well adivsed to spice up your love life by making extra efforts to keep the passion stoked. But aside from that, you two had a lot in common.

Not sure how long you were married or when you met but if it occurred during one of your Saturn Returns (ages 27-30) it is thought that things begun during the return do not tend to last.

Let me know more about this timing.

Salt Lake City, Utah: Thanks much. We began our relationship in 1991, and married in 1996. I believe that was during his return. The marriage lasted until 1999.

Charlene Lichtenstein: Ah ha! Thanks.
