One of the big planetary highlights of 2021 has been the square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus it was February 17th, June 4th, and coming December 23rd. And even though right now we are at the end of August we are still in the thick of this transit.
This configuration represents the clash between the old and the new. The struggle to conform is represented by Saturn in Aquarius, and the urge for freedom, innovation and to rebel is Uranus in Taurus. These two planets meet up approximately every 22 years just to make sure we are not getting too comfortable in our routines. Last time this happened was 1999 and the two planets were in the same signs, however Saturn was in Taurus and Uranus was in Aquarius. These are fixed signs, meaning the changes that are occurring feel difficult because we are set in our ways of thinking and being.
Regularly we see global shifts and changes but this one has a lot more weight to it following a year of Covid and all that brought to us.
Where there is instability in the world is abundantly clear, all you need to do is read/watch the news.
With Saturn working his magic through the sign of Aquarius he is telling us we need to re-structure old systems with new more modern and innovative ideas. The old ways, and old structures, ruling Governments and even religions are fighting to survive in a world that is ready for change on many levels.
Depending on your level of involvement in activism, what can we do that can help on a global scale? I like the old saying. “Think Globally, Act Locally”. We are all responsible for taking care of the planet we live on, so find something and add to the movement.
Uranus in Taurus is also in play. Being in Taurus he is bring to our attention the instability of Taurus things. Taurus rules the earth and nature, also money and finances. He has a lot to do with crypto currencies and the up and down market in their regard. It is also the major fluctuations in weather and the impact of food and our insecurities around food.
This is a major issue in the world and local communities. Again I would ask how can I help; I am only one person? “Think Globally, Act Locally”. Whatever we can do in our neighborhood is the first step to helping the world. You know the Butterfly effect.
So personally how are we working these transits? First re-read above. Second you need to see where these two planets in your chart. Also are they interacting with any planets in your chart?
Generally speaking on the personal level and not looking at the house placement we know these two are here to inspire us, to move us forward in life, to make changes, to create, feel free and encouraged. Find time to do nothing and simple be in nature with no agenda and suddenly you may have an epiphany. I love when that happens! Brilliant ideas show up out of the blue setting a fresh foundation for your future. This is the work of Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius.
So sit down and imagine the best world you can, the best life situations, global healing. Raise your vibration by releasing your old patterns. The more you are aware of them and allowing them to move through you and not run your life, the more they are released and you get lighter and lighter, raising your vibration, by releasing your past.
Furthermore with all the outer planets retrograde till October (and further) there is a lot of inner work going on these days. This is what retrograde planets are about. Slowing us down, revisiting situations to gain a deeper understanding.
Of course there is always more and other things to talk about, however I will stop here with these two guys as they are a deep enough subject for now.
Be well, brightest blessings, Dorothy
