Saturn’s Moon “remix”

In earlier times, before psychology became a distinct discipline, depression was described as being under the influence of Saturn. Sadness or melancholy was called “being in Saturn”.

Saturn’s Moon “remix” 2018

Nothing feels right
When I am in this melancholy mood
Alone in my room
In the dead of night
In the cold blue light
Under the glow
from Saturn’s Moon
And I tell myself that everything will be okay
It won’t be long before this
Dark cloud fades away
And I tell myself there will be a new dawn coming soon
When I break the spell I know so well in the glow from Saturn’s moon
Nothing feels real
When I am stranded in this world of illusion
nowhere to hide
In the cold blue light
Under the glow from Saturn’s Moon
And I tell myself that everything will be okay
It won’t be long before this
Dark cloud fades away
And I tell myself there’ll be a new dawn coming soon
When I break the spell I know so well in the glow from Saturn’s moon
Cause that’s the way I feel
In the glow from Saturn’s Moon

In earlier times, before psychology became a distinct discipline, depression was described as being under the influence of Saturn. Sadness or melancholy was called “being in Saturn”. The old Roman god Saturn (Chronos in Greek) was deposed by his son Jupiter (Zeus in the Greek tradition). Saturn was the ruler of the “good, old days”, the golden age which had passed. Saturn’s children, people whom today we would label as “chronically depressed”, seem to dwell in the world of memories. One might wonder why people wallow in sad memories and feelings. Moore claims that this process is rooted in the way the soul desires to be both in time and also in eternity. Sad thoughts and feelings are pleasing to the soul. The conscious mind turns over and over its loss of youth and laments. But even in one’s mid-thirties, this clinging to youth is dangerous. We can get stuck in this lamenting and possibly make fools of ourselves with more and more plastic surgery and drinks “from the fountain of youth”.

Saturn can bring new feelings of self-acceptance and self-knowledge. With Saturn “you get a sense of having lived through something, of being older and wiser. You know that life is suffering, and that knowledge makes a difference. You can’t enjoy the bouncy, carefree innocence of youth any longer, a realization that entails both sadness because of the loss, and pleasure in the new feeling of self-acceptance and self-knowledge. This awareness of age has a halo of melancholy around it, but it also enjoys a measure of nobility.” (p. 139)
The next time you fall into a depressed mood, consider the possibility of feeling what you fell into as the road to spiritual evolution. The path less traveled sometimes makes all the difference, as Robert Frost said long ago. Perhaps your Saturn return could be a helpful letting go of things which no longer serve you and the dawning of your noble roots. Just a thought.
