Saturn is in Pisces now, which means the next ~2.5 years are an education in dreaming and making dreams real.
We leave a five year time period of Saturn in domicile (in Saturn’s home signs of Capricorn and Aquarius), a time period which saw the pandemic and the global contraction of that. It was extra Saturn.
Saturn is now in Jupiter’s home (speaking of traditional rulerships) which is an auger that the reality principle that Saturn represents is entering a more expansive state, one that dreams and brings things into being.
Saturn is still a difficult or challenging planet, but in the same sense that if you were wanting to shape and develop yourself in the face of something like climbing a mountain or completing a degree program, you’d need some obstacle. When we allow ourselves to relate to the hardness of life we engage the development of our own skill and excellence. It doesn’t always feel that way, but often time (or wisdom) grants perspective.
Welcome back! Or in case this is your first time here, I’m Sabrina Monarch and I’m a soul-centered astrologer. I love providing perspectives on the opportunities of transits and putting into words what the zeitgeist feels like at this moment in time, to support you on your path & open a dialogue between us and the cosmos.

With Saturn in Pisces, the education about dreaming and making dreams real means facing things such as:
- dissolving the blockages that we have internally to dreaming or visioning, opening up to the vulnerability of our vision
- encountering disillusionment and adjusting or maturing the dream, without losing heart
- restoring our heart or places of natural innocence where we’ve been disappointed in the past
- how our existential and spiritual frameworks are meaningful feeding/supporting life or not
- knowing when to persevere on a dream versus when to change course (tough calls)
- learning how to open (rather than close or become embittered) in the face of loss or grief
- sacrificing our disillusionments (like our smaller, egoic perspectives and dreams) at the altar of a bigger dream that is dreaming us
- taking the responsibility to really ally our life choices and habits with our vision, instead of waiting for God to save us
- learning how to surrender and how to call in greater help from the Universe
- moving through seasons of confusion and clarity along the path of discovering our relationship with Life
- really getting to know and take responsibility for how we are relating to the All of Life
- feeding our faith and our dreams before we have hard proof and giving ourselves that level of authorship and creativity
Recommended Listening/Reading… honestly a whole library at this point 😇 save this for later as a guided Saturn in Pisces course.
A video teaching of mine on the archetype of Saturn in Pisces and how it relates to the ways we are all occupying multiple realms at once (such as “real life” and our imagination) and the pitfalls and opportunities of this basic tenant of our multifaceted reality.

the Dream & the Abyss: a Saturn in Pisces Contemplation: upon seeing the Neverending Story for the first time ever this summer, I was inspired to write an article about this film and the theme of facing disillusionment/doubt as a polarity to dreaming. You can read it here.
Lastly, I recently published an audio novella in chapters to Magic of the Spheres podcast, which is an erotic tragic novel and goes heavily into themes around dreams materializing and disillusionment. It was a grief project – autobiographical – and a product of my own Saturn return in Aquarius. I referenced this novel in the YouTube video teaching about Saturn in Pisces and while the novel is promised as a tragedy — many listeners found it relatable and healing and it garnered enthusiastic acclaim.
