Hi, Elsa!

I just discovered your column and thought I'd take a chance. I've grown wary of astrology since one astrologer summed up my chart in a sentence: "You should commit suicide." Well, I'm still here, but I could use a little guidance.

Using Robert Hand's Planets in Transit, I looked up Saturn, as it is transiting my seventh house. (That's right, isn't it?) From what I've read, this is great for achieving committed relationships, but Saturn will begin transiting my eighth house in a couple of years, and here Hand pulls out his characteristic negativity, implying "Basically, expect to be broke and die." Okay, so I'm being a tiny bit facetious, but not much.

Elsa, I'm tired of just barely surviving, lone wolf style. I'm working extremely hard to achieve a better life, but Saturn transiting eighth looks past-hope-gloomy. I want to thrive!

Dear Scorp Girl,

I hope you told that astrologer that you’d die when you damned well pleased! I haven’t read Hand’s book in fifteen years, but I do give advice and I have some for you.

First, you are a Capricorn rising. That means Saturn rules your chart! My sister (also an astrologer) and I both have Capricorn rising and she had a theory about this she shared with me years ago.

After ten years of observing — well she watched people whine and bitch through their Saturn transits — she noted she and I had very little trouble with them. In fact, most times we felt very supported and she wondered if the planet that rules the chart can do no wrong. If it’s not friendly to the chart, see. Because we know all about Saturn things! You do, she does, I do. So where someone more light fare may balk when told to "toe the line," people like us just get to work!

I’m suggesting you rethink this whole thing. Wherever transiting Saturn falls in your chart, you should expect to thrive! Understand that all this fear bullshit is falling prey to negative Capricorn traits. Where are your boundaries, girl?

You have a stellium in Scorpio (power) in the 10th house (Capricorn). Who is calling the shots, hmm? Next time tells someone tells you you’re going to have a bad time, you tell them they must be an idiot. Surely it should be obvious to anyone with three brain cells that you have great command and a sense of humor, too, so you will have whatever kind of time you want to have. Things will turn out the way you will them to turn out, and this is a fact.

So just remember the caveat, “be careful what you wish for.” Outside of that, have the side of you that knows you are more competent than 95% of the people on this planet fire the side of you that worries about things two years in advance, okay?

Good luck!

    What does that say here, Speak your mind? Thats nice. I would strongly advise people not to go over to her blog unless you agree with 100 percent of everyone of her opnions. She will just say your “overwhelming” her blog and delete everything you ever said on there. Thank goodness I wasnt there long. No one is over there except for her yes mame people. Like 20 and 21 comment posts per topic. hardly a community, since she has an agenda with her blog. If your not into promoting war and praising her right wing views. I would stay away far away from her and her “chart readings”
