Saturn is the Kosmic Kop, the Lord of Karma and forces us to take responsibility for what's wrong. It's the parent who tells you to do your homework, fix things, make life better and more secure through hard work, effort and focused diligence. It's not a planet of fun although the hard work that Saturn demands can bring great rewards and free up time so that you can have fun. But fun is not the focus of this post. It's about what Saturn means as it enters Aquarius.
There's nothing like Saturn in Aquarius to make us realize we are connected to the entire human race. Responsibility is global and the solution must be the coordination of a world wide humanitarian effort. We will test the limits of technology, and technology will be where we can also find the answers. If technology breaks down, at first, it's Saturn's way of saying "Fix your infrastructure!" and then following the breakdown we know what's broken and our responsibility is to rebuild. It's a world wide group effort says Saturn in Aquarius. How will we learn to pool our resources. Remember Uranus is traveling through Taurus so world wide humanitarian resources and money is rather chaotic and volatile. The economy will be forced to make a new beginning on the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius at the very end of the year on December 21, 2020.
Uranus in Taurus is also about distancing ourselves from touching. Taurus is the most tactile sign, and this planetary transit through this most sensual and body oriented of signs says we have to force a physical space around the individual. We are already feeling the upcoming Venus retrograde in Gemini on May 13 having an effect on social distancing. Let's see what turns around, changes or moves in a different direction regarding this new way of social interaction. Facetime, Skype, Zoom and all those other ways of social interactions will be the only ways for some to stay connected as we are forced to be detached and isolated from actual human, physical sense of touch. Not a fan of this Uranus in Taurus and Venus retrograde energy but we must do it at this time or suffer the consequences. These are new ways to learn how to interact one on one with individuals and groups.
Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus will work in tandem. How will we learn to balance and give equal charity, resources, money and aid to all groups and not just special interest groups. This is a humbling of the democratic process. Are we really all equal? Saturn says put your money where your mouth is. It's time for the Saturn in Capricorn leadership and authorities to stay focused on the immediate present with an eye towards ensuring our future Aquarian goals.
Saturn likes to impose limits henceforth the limits on Aquarian themed matters: large personal group gatherings, no parades, closing large auditoriums where groups gather such as concerts, movie theaters, and stadiums. The Airline Industry flies the sky and Saturn grounds anything that is airborne. It's grounding the planes and it's grounding this airborne virus. There's sickness in the air with such an emphasis on Aquarius and Gemini in the next few months.
Help, charity and aid starts with each government, each group doing what they can for the local community and then there must be a joining and meeting of minds to link and connect everyone. It's important to be on the same page to ensure a more stable future. Aquarius is the sign of Social Security. That means more than just getting a check from the government once a month, though that is important. We must focus on and rebuild the security of our society, its infrastructure, its youth and its elders. We need a new deal, just like during the great depression. Saturn in Capricorn has the individual going after their own individual goals for personal prosperity. Saturn in Aquarius offers an opportunity to put aside our separateness and come together as one large group with a similar goal. Democrats and Republicans must come together and not remain selfishly separate but work together. That's a global example but there are millions of personal ones as well. Time to put aside our differences. Groups consensus. There is that strange dichotomy in the sign of Aquarius - we must all come together for a common goal yet this pandemic is forcing us to keep social distance. It's always been the Aquarian conundrum. How do I stand apart from the group while remaining part of it.
It's time to give back!
