Legend: Bootes gave some shepherds wine that he got from Dionysos. They killed him because they got drunk from the 'magic brew'. His daughter and two dogs were grief stricken and killed themselves. Jupiter placed them together in heaven. He is also referred to as the bear keeper.
Arcturus is about knives and cutting. This can include anything from operations to cutting away ignorance. Knives and boots may be important. It is about finding out who we truly are and about communicating with a Higher Source and asking the Archangels for assistance. Visualize your favorite Knight of the Round Table bringing you what you ask for.
This Galaxy is ruled by the North Node of the Moon (Rahu) that likes to amplify things, making it bigger and better. North Node is also lustful for love, sex, money and power. The North Node is emphasized as it is currently in this position. The North Node wants things to happen now, in a big way.
Libra rules the Twilight Zone as this is where the Sun sets. So it is neither day nor night. Libra rules the masses, partnerships, relationships, sex, society, dealing with people, the marketplace and making money.
Saturn is exalted in Libra where it brings balance, discipline, organisation, fair deals and good judgement. Saturn in this position especially favors artistic and creative endeavors, and designing new things, especially woman's products. It is also good for dealings with iron, coal, steel and products from the earth. Saturn teaches discipline, boundaries, organisation, fear and anxiety. Relationships and partnerships formed now will be long term. It also favors making things affordable for the masses, fair deals and charity. Saturn in Arcturus brings serious consequences, danger and legal problems, and even death to people who overindulge in alcohol. The reason being that Saturn in this position wants moderation, balance, boundaries and discipline. Saturn teaches us that self-control is the key to success. We may not be able to control others, but we can control ourselves. Abstinence and fasting are the ultimate forms of self-control. Saturn trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto. This aspect can boost your career, make you more powerful, increase your faith and spiritual insights.
Mercury - Lord of trade and communication (messages).
Because Saturn governs the head and neck, and Arcturus rules sharp objects such as scissors, hair cuts may become the latest craze.

On a personal level the effect of this placement depends on the placement of the planets in your birth-chart and how they aspect each other.
Those especially affected by Saturn and the North Node (Rahu) in Arcturus are:
Those who have their birthday between 24 October to 6 November - that is where the Sun was placed at their birth.
6°40' - 20°00' Libra (sidereal) 29°44' Libra - 12°43' Scorpio (tropical)
These people may be accident prone, have to deal with legal issues or death (especially of the father, grandfather or spouse) and obstacles in general. On the upside their finances and career will benefit.
In my own chart I have Neptune (Mysticism & Spirituality) placed here. Saturn on my birth Neptune makes me want to present and practice Mysticism and Spirituality in an organised way. It makes me more perceptive and psychic because the North Node amplifies my gift. Because it lies in Arcturus in Libra, it sharpens my senses and it makes me balance reality and the supernatural. It gives me a reality check and keeps me grounded. Neptune is also about escapism (eg through alcohol) but Saturn keeps that firmly in check and once again shows me the negative effects that any form of narcotics can have on people. Saturn on my natal Neptune also makes my dreams more vivid and has given me the ability to see through the illusion to see things for how they truly are.
Both my mother and my daughter have their birth sun's placed here. As a result I have had to share in their pain and troubles. My mother was recently widowed and has been extremely accident prone. My daughter lost the only grandfather she ever knew. She has been extremely accident prone and as a result of drinking was involved in an incidence of violence which ultimately led to legal issues. However they both have money luck and my daughter's career is flourishing.
