The old adage is that "It's always darkest just before the Dawn"...
Saturn went direct today [conj. my natal Saturn] in the 23rd of Libra;
[From Rudhyar's book on the Sabians]:
"CHANTICLEER'S VOICE HERALDS SUNRISE.
KEYNOTE: A creative and joyous response to life processes.
The cock that crows as the first coloring of dawn appears at the eastern horizon is a beautiful symbol of the ability, demonstrated by all pioneers and cosmically attuned individuals, to give voice to what is as yet unmanifested, but is on the way to manifestation. At the ego level, chanticleer may feel that he makes the sun rise; but someday he will learn through painful experiences that to create is only to reveal what essentially is. It is the vivid recognition of the as-yet-unknown in the known.
This third stage symbol should make us think afresh about issues we too often take for granted. At every "sunrise" there are a few isolated witnesses that herald the coming of a new day. What is at stake here is the individual's capacity of RESPONSE TO LIFE'S RENEWALS — renewals which are cyclic, predictable, yet always new, always creative."
