Article - Saturn in Aquarius
On March 23, 2020 Saturn moved into Aquarius and stays in that astrological sign for 2 ½ years. Saturn is so far away from the sun that it takes about 29 years to complete 1 full orbit. According to Mirriam-Webster Dictionary, astrology is “the study of how the position of the stars and movements of the planets have a supposed influence of events and on the lives and behavior of people.” Saturn and Aquarius are opposites for the most part. The past and future come into play as Saturn brings up the past and Aquarius is futuristic. The aspects of Saturn bring forth feelings of fears, anxieties and worries to create limitations and structure. Self-preservation and the ability to endure hardships are some of the obstacles presented by Saturn.
Saturn energy might make you feel like the days are passing slower. Frustrations and pressures from uncertainty or bureaucracy might have you focus on eliminating things out of life that are no longer effective. The stark reality of Saturn may tend to bring in the conservation of energy and resources.
Plato’s proverb, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” is a wonderful analogy of what is happening in the world today as Saturn aligns with Aquarius. Rapid research and development is pushing society forward to find innovative solutions to the unprecedented events worldwide. Aquarius energy leans toward forward-thinking, innovative, out-of-the-box, unique ways. It can be intellectual, yet detached from personal opinion, and fair-minded. Aquarius energy goes against the norm and is known for its non-conformity. Finding the balance between the oppression of Saturn versus the faith, hope and optimism of Aquarius can lead humanity to a greater sense of purpose. Both Saturn and Aquarius energies are strong, fixed and mature in nature.
With Saturn passing through Aquarius it is a good time to reevaluate individual ideals, principles, social associations and group interactions. Prioritizing quality over quantity might become more crucial. It may be time to look beyond yourself and find more altruistic values. These energies combined help set egos aside to do what is best for the collective whole. Allowing yourself to let go of what isn’t working anymore and obtaining new principles could bring lifelong happiness. Moving beyond your fears and limitations and rising beyond.
