Dylan (now called Malone) Farrow has been in the news recently after an article about the various scandals surrounding Woody Allen appeared in Vanity Fair in November. This article reports that Dylan was first molested at the age of seven, which from an astrologer’s perspective is the time of the first “Saturn Square,” when Saturn in the sky makes a square to Saturn in the birthchart. Saturn’s orbit is 28 years, so the Saturn cycle consists of the opening square (90 degree angle) at age 7, the opposition at 14, the closing square is at age 21 and the Saturn Return ends the first cycle at age 28.
Then I was fascinated by the fact that Dylan/Malone, who has been out of the public eye for many years, revealed herself at age 28 in an article in which she discusses a suicide attempt at age 21. So we have the first episode at age seven, a suicide attempt at age 21, and the conclusion through revelation at age 28 – clearly tied to Saturn somehow.
According to Wikipedia Dylan was born July 11, 1985. Her progressed Saturn has been nearing a conjunction to natal Saturn over the past several years (Saturn moves slowly through the natal chart and this is a sort of progressed Saturn return) which culminated in October of 2013. The end of that cycle coincided with the publication of the Vanity Fair article which was likely written earlier in 2013. Her Saturn Return is exact right now which will hopefully complete the cycle of abuse and healing.
Those of us who have survived sexual violence often feel that we are all alone and that we will never survive the damage that was caused to us. However, I have seen great transformation occur both in myself and in the lives of clients as truths are revealed and healing takes place.
