Christopher Renstrom – The Secret History of Saturn

Saturn has always maintained an outsider status in Astrology. Loathed and feared, Saturn was the planet associated with Jews, blacks, slaves, the elderly and the destitute. This is a far cry from its current connection to rigid authority and the money-class. So how did this happen? By drawing on art, iconography, and literature I will reconstruct Saturn’s secret history and present a second look at the planet that is often stigmatized. In recent years Saturn has been dressed up as the shadow aspect of our horoscope, something we need to integrate in order to become whole. But what if Saturn’s job is to stubbornly resist assimilation? We will see how by maintaining its otherness Saturn shows us our true faces.
