Think back to February 17 of this year. That was the last time Saturn in Aquarius squared Uranus in Taurus. Today is the second time this transit occurs in 2021, and the third time will be on December 24. Looking back to February can help you piece together the story that has its second part today.
This is one of the quintessential astrological aspects of 2021 because it sets the tone for the year. When these two planets connect, we can expect some explosive energy. Saturn is the planet of authority and Uranus is the planet of rebellion. Both are currently in fixed signs, which means that they’re stubborn in their beliefs. When these two come together in a fraught aspect, there is push and pull, but mostly push. And, as you know, no one likes being told what to do.
It could be a time of intense personal shifts and growth, which you may not be ready to implement in your life. Change is hard and scary, and we are creatures of habit and comfort who don’t like being told what to do. Rebelling against society can be freeing in the end, but it could also meet with tension as you disengage from what you’ve known your whole life and move toward a more enlightened existence.
The Moon’s trine to Chiron this afternoon opens the doors to greater confidence in expressing our individual perspectives. However, we should not expect any dramatic turnarounds or broad acceptance even when we express ourselves clearly and directly. Saturn completes the second of 3 squares to Uranus today, demanding integrity and proper groundwork before we can make significant progress. There are bound to be some frustrations revealed or expressed today. Patience and trusting the process will help to keep us from becoming overwrought or overly demonstrative in showing our frustration. Internalizing frustration will be as destructive as lashing out blindly. Managing defensiveness is really the key to maintaining a steady course here.
