For the first 2000 years that astrology was practiced, astrologers understood Saturn to be a lord of death, deep transformation, and ultimately a doorkeeper to profound states of enlightenment. In the past one hundred years, however, these original associations of Saturn have been assigned to outer planets, and Saturn himself has been relegated to topics like structure, discipline, and the status quo. In this talk, Matthew works to restore the classical model of this planet. Using historical analysis, hermetic philosophy, and practical examples, he demonstrates the value of working with Saturn as he was originally perceived, and shows how you can use this understanding in your own astrological practice.
