I have some random thoughts about the current astrology particularly as Saturn enters Aquarius on March 21. Saturn is the planet of responsibility, focus and challenge and says it’s time to work on the issues that are blocked, stuck, stagnant and need to be made stronger and restructured. He’s called Father Time because he looks back in time at what has been done, and signals his entry into the new sign by showing you what time has wrought. He almost always shows the negative first to sober us up, and then his job is to start to fix things through hard work and effort. He ain’t called the Lord of Karma for nothing! Aquarius is the sign the Lord of Karma has just entered. Here are some terms that are entering our consciousness in very pressing ways: Social Distancing, Social Responsibility, and Social Security.
Saturn shows us our limits. In Aquarius there are limits being placed on team and group activities. No team sports, no meeting in groups and no large public gatherings. Instead there is a stronger urge for the public to conform to do the same thing required by the collective consciousness. What’s good for the group in Aquarius is what is good for the individual. We must bring creative individuality to benefit the group and be a team player but not in the societal “norm” or traditional definitions of what a team is. Physical distance will keep the team, collective and group together. The question is how does the individual contribute their unique talent to the collective, which in turn brings a wave of mass communication that heals society? And yet there must be a blending into the group and actually conform to herd mentality in order to benefit the individual. In the time of Corona being a sheep and following the herd is important towards maintaining a healthy society. Saturn in Aquarius will show us the current limits of our political infrastructure, social infrastructure, financial infrastructure and societal infrastructure. What are the limits of democracy and how will this virus democratize our society as it crosses boundaries of class, race, money, gender and just about everything. It doesn’t discriminate. Corona is an equal opportunity pandemic and Aquarius prides itself on equality and democracy and Saturn will bring into question just exactly how we define those terms. This is about global humanitarianism and linking governments hand in hand to solve a major problem. Ultimately this should foster universal love and understanding but that’s a utopian ideal, and let’s see just how far we can eventually go with that concept.
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus which is currently traveling in Taurus through April 2026. Taurus is a tactile, touch oriented and pleasure seeking sign and it also has to do with our values. It manifests in the most obvious way over its rulership of money! Saturn in Aquarius will answer to Uranus in Taurus and that emphasizes the concept of distancing ourselves from touching other people. We will learn to reach out and touch someone via technology. There’s a reversal in attitude towards sensual behavior and seeking pleasure. How good are you at seeking those values through online group gatherings and technology, and if you don’t like that method, how will you think creatively outside the box to customize it to your unique sensibility? Uranian energy is chaotic and rebellious, so our money systems will do a complete reversal and all that we hold valuable will be shaken up and volatile. Material and financial security won’t be that stable for a long time to come. Uranus is a procreative planet and in Taurus it's time to think of new ways to use your God-given talent. Our innate, individual talents must explode into a new paradigm.
Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn this summer and not enter Aquarius again till December. Jupiter remains in Capricorn all year as well, and enters Aquarius in late December at almost exactly the same time as Saturn. Both these planets (which rule the economy) will make a conjunction at that point at 0° of Aquarius and that is the time of the new beginning when we will really see what time has wrought and the extent of the devastation of this disease to our society and economy. We will then see just what the future looks like and exactly where we have to go. Pluto is the ultimate planet we are answering to in this entire cosmic journey and she says it’s all about evolution and you have no control. You will learn to build new constructs and structures to deal with the evolutionary change but it’s time to purge the old and make way for the new. Saturn in Aquarius says one of the answers to this is to materialize our scientific geniuses in our society. And on a spiritual level to connect the individual heart to the group heart.
Aquarius rules outer space and aliens. Corona is the alien enemy you’ve been waiting for. It’s not a Martian or E.T. or The Blob but a Virus!
So many have asked, when exactly does the Age of Aquarius begin? There is no exact date of passage from one epoch to another. It lasts several hundred years, but this pandemic and the conjunctions of Saturn and Jupiter at the end of the year at 0° Aquarius followed by Pluto entering Aquarius in 2024 are major steeping stones saying, “Wake up, It’s Here!”
