I've a question.
As you said, Saturn is like a nuclear bomb when it comes to transits on natal, important planets (and 1st house etc). But in my life I've known people, who've never meditated, that have overcome a damn 1st house saturn transit, without a scratch. One of these was, and is, a relative under psychiatric drugs (so a factor, in this instance, that weakens the mind and the aura/soul, making the person more passive to the transit). Another one has overcame (still alive) a 1st house Saturn transit where Saturn hit his ruler (Pluto) and then the Moon, co ruler. Saturn is going to be retrograde on his bad placed (22 degrees) Moon (his mother has been hospitalized. 8th house intercepted contains Cancer, making the Moon co-ruler of the 8th. Is his mother going to die?). So damn Saturn is going retro on his 1st house, but he looks fine (even thought he strives for attention as he constantly screams, laughs very loud, to get someone to notice him -parasitic behaviour).
The main question are:
1) how come that some people don't really experience all the disaster Saturn is expected to do, when under very bad energies?
(Taking in consideration the example above, of the relative, who has a strong Aries emphasis. Could the Aries emphasis counter the transit?
For the second person. Strong soul? He makes jokes where the object is bible verses, behaves like a spiritual parasite. I don't think so.)
2) I am not sure, quite the opposite, but the guy could be jewish (You can't really tell jews by facial features in many cases, in Italy. It's more difficult here. Yes you can discover by feeling, but here people (some) are so judaized that you can't tell the difference between jews and christians) Question: how do jews undergo Saturn transits? From what I remember from HP Cobra (or Mageson) jews hacked the astral/material society absorbing the good Saturn-Jupiter qualities, leaving to us the bad. (Correct?)
So I wouldn't be surprised if they experience less shit.
Thanks, sorry for the essay lol
