"To say that one waits a lifetime for his soul mate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soul mates, which takes a lifetime to perfect."
-- Criss Jami

When the cosmic taskmaster finally comes out of retrograde on July 20 for the last time in the dark waters of Scorpio, it's definitely a case of all-or-nothing-at-all. Look to where Saturn has been touring your horoscope to see which life arena has been up for the Saturnian litmus test. "Go deep or go home" is the battle cry for Saturn in Scorpio.
Scorpio is the do-or-die fixed Water energy that does not allow us to remain in the wishy-washy indecision of the preceding Air sign, Libra. The area of your horoscope dominated by Scorpio is where you will often face your deepest fears, insecurities and emotional vulnerabilities. Now with Saturn coming through as the karmic auditor, you can bet you're being tested to give your heart and soul.
If you're willing to work hard, confront your shadows and truly deepen your commitments, Saturn will approve and lift you up like a child. If you're avoiding the dark material of your life, Saturn will drag you down like a massive boulder until you surrender to the reality check. There's no getting around facing our fears if we truly want to reach that next level of emotional intimacy and commitment.
Don't avoid looking into the dark waters of jealousy, fear of loss, control, possessiveness and sexuality during the last leg of this Saturn-in-Scorpio phase of 2014. There is gold at the end of this seemingly dark tunnel -- you just have to be willing to delve deeply into your own psychic underworld to unearth the riches.
