In a forest there sits a an old man with a long white beard and an hour glass. (Saturn) He measures time and is acutely aware of mortality, impermanence, form and human limitations. Recently he came into contact with Neptune, the Goddess of the abstract waters of art, spirituality, visions, ideals and deception. They can not entirely understand each other as they speak very different languages, but they are deeply aware of each other nonetheless at this time. They each feel compelled to work together for the greater good of humanity. They sense that they need the gifts the other possesses. Saturn potentially can put Neptune’s visions into concrete reality-building the ideals, turning artistic vision into actual form, putting spiritual aims and compassion into practice. Neptune potentially can spiritualize and beautify Saturn’s obsession with the rational and the mundane, elevating form into sacred building. Neptune infuses divine longing into all things. Together they can manifest the etherial, the formless, the heart longings of the collective. Saturn brings it all down to earth-measurable facts.
