Anvil: The Heavy Metal Key To Understanding Saturn In Libra

By now, you've undoubtedly heard that Saturn has entered Libra, and read a lot of things about how Libra is the "partnership sign" and how Saturn's presence there means your relationships will be tested, and your standards of fairness will be challenged, and how it will be more difficult to manage your budget, and so on.

This of course is all true... but I can't help but wonder if somehow Saturn's real message isn't being lost in all the details. Astrology can be like that sometimes. There are so many little details to keep an eye on that it's entirely too easy to miss the forest for the trees.

So rather than present a laundry list of what Saturn in Libra "means" or "doesn't mean"... I'd like to present you with an object lesson on how to handle it. Seriously: there is an easy way you can learn everything you need to know about surviving and thriving under Saturn in Libra... and you can rent it and watch it in an hour and a half. It also happens to be (probably) the best documentary I've ever seen.

Now... watch this trailer for "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil." Then go out and get a copy:

To summarize:

-Achieving your goals, particularly if you are an artist or other creator, is never easy.

-Making money being a creator is often difficult.

-Maintaining a partnership with someone you love is often made difficult by practical considerations.

-Often... it would be easier to just give up and let "common sense" dictate your behavior.

But more than anything, the real lesson of Saturn in Libra (or in any other sign, for that matter) is this:

Never give up.

"That's dedication, pal."

Feels like this person took the easy way out. I won't be going out to rent or buy a video. I was looking forward to some meaningful posts regarding Saturn in Libra

Good point. Your article on the same issue was far more informative, um... Anonymous. Keep up the good work!~

Ditto that, Matthew. It's Saturn, by the gods, and we just have to be serious about it.

Hi Matthew, I loved your Anvil article! It's a profound little movie and yes, it does have a good Saturn message - I love finding astrological messages in things like songs and movies, it's everywhere if you look at it and can be really meaningful if it strikes a chord (ha! ha!).
I just found this review of the movie and the reviewer writes towards the end "Eventually Anvil get what they deserve" - how very Saturn!
