The planet called Saturn had ended it’s retrograde motion 2 days ago (on July/20 2014). In the sign of Scorpio, within the confines ruled by Merkury it’s retrograde time was devoted to internal considerations. As the “Saturn” finally had came back to its “normal” direct motion, he desires to speak in clear and expressive fashion, what he thinks about what is starting to happen just now. But as he’s not used to waste his words when no-one is listening, firstly he want’s to clarify what he is.

 

Better hear him out…

Saturn asks DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY NAME IS?<br /> I AM THE SLOWEST AND THE FURTHEST OF THE ANCIENT PLANETS, BESTOWER OF LIMITATION, WHO POSTPONES AND REJECTS THINGS. Saturn? PLEASE... THAT’S A ROMAN NAME!<br /> I AM THE ONE WHO THE CHALDEAN ORDER OF LUMINARIES BEGINS WITH.<br /> CHALDEANS WERE THE BABYLONIANS. KEEP THE TRADITIONS, YOU IGNORANTS.<br /> MY TRUE NAME IS BABYLONIAN<br /> Star (mul) + DISTANT, STEADY, DURABLE, CONSTANT<br /> I GUESS YOU EVEN DON’T KNOW WHETHER YOU SHOULD READ IT MULSAG.UŠ OR KAYYAMĀNU, kayyamanyu, kayyamaanu, kajjamanu, mulsagush, MULSAG.USH<br /> BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW THAT AKKADIAN IS A FLEXIVE LANGUAGE AND USES CUNEIFORM WRITING OF THE SUMERIAN LANGUAGE, WHICH IS IN TURN NON-FLEXIVE. SIMILARLY TO HOW FLEXIVE JAPANESE IMPORTED SIGNS OF NON-FLEXIVE CHINESE.<br /> WELL, DO YOU KNOW NOW? OF COURSE YOU DON’T.<br /> THE ONE STARTING WITH THE SAME LETTER AS IN GREEK!!<br /> CAN’T YOU SEE WHAT I HAVE ON MY FOREHEAD?!<br /> THIS IS A SIMPLIFIEDLETTER KAPPA. ΚΆΠΠΑ<br /> BECAUSE MY GREEK NAME IS (THE STAR OF) KRONOS ΚΡΟΝΟΣ<br /> AND INITIALLY IT WAS “KR” - KAPPA + RHO<br /> IT WAS IN MIDDLE AGES THAT IT HAD BEEN STYLISED BEYOND RECOGNITION<br /> SOME WANTED IT TO LOOK LIKE A SICKLE, MAYBE ALSO LIKE LETTER “S” OR LIKE THE<br /> CHRISTIAN CROSS.<br /> AND HUMAN FORGOT WHAT IT SHOULD REALLY MEAN.<br /> AND FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE! I AM NOT A CROSS AND CRESCENT!<br /> I AM NOT “A TRIUMPH OF  MATTER  OVER THE   SPIRIT  .” BTW. MOON HAS MORE TO DO WITH MATTER THAN WITH THE SPIRIT.<br /> NOR AM I A REVERSED JUPITER GLYPH!<br /> WHY DON’T YOU WORK WITH AT LEAST THE HELLENISTIC TRADITION OF ASTROLOGY?<br /> ANCIENT LEGACY WILL MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND ME! THE OVERMARKETED NOVELTY STUFF YOU CALL “AWAKENESS” AND “INTUITIVE PSYCHOLOGY” WON‘T! USE THE OL’ GOOD THINGS PEOPLE!<br />

Sun entered Leo. Is now at 0 degrees Leo, that is in the first moira – degree. In the next moira (1 degree Leo) is Jupiter. They are two rulers of this sign – Sun rules the whole house (domicile), Jupiter rules the confines in which they both are now, and they are both rulers of the triplicity here.
In all fire signs which are ruled by Sun by day and by Jupiter at night – the first of 5 confines (limits, terms or bounds) are always ruled by Jupiter. I believe it is because the Sun as the main ruler of the day horoscopes, has no confines in any sign. Also because in fire sign no diurnal planet is exalted. Similar configuration happens with the Moon as the main nocturnal queen of sect. Her home sign is Cancer, which is water triplicity. And Mars as the night ruler of water triplicity rules also the first confines in these water signs. Except for Pisces, which IS an exaltation of the nocturnal planet – that is Venus – therefore it is Venus that is the ruler of the first confines of Pisces, not Mars.
I never heard anyone noticing that, but it seems a legit rationale.
Anyway it’s a good mnemonic to memorise the confines.
And remember in Hellenistic world only Egyptian set of confines were found as used by more than one source (which changed in Middle Ages).
