The heavy Old Father Time of structure and limitation, Saturn's dark gravitas is well-known as a 'malefic'among astrologers. Liz Greene's new book, however, sheds some much-needed light on the rich symbolic, psychological and astrological necessity of Saturn's initiatory facet; the scythe that strips us not only of minutes and hours, but also the psychic bonds of unconscious - and often downright uncomfortable truths - leading us to ever-greater opportunities for self-realisation.
