Saturn Square Uranus Sunrise over Capitol Washington DC

Sunrise on the Capitol Building, Washington DC  …and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.  —Abraham Lincoln

It’s one thing to be in an unlike sign. It isn’t going anyplace, has always been there, mostly knows what it is doing and can be helpful to the new arrival. Though, yes, it is being impinged on as planets pass through. But still, it shapes them up as to its parameters, one of the natural parts of life, and it adds to its own repertoire. It is another thing to be square the planet of the sign you are in! A planet can more readily adapt to being in a sign rather than being actively rejected, or rejecting the other planet! A square between moving parts has a push and a bite to it. Saturn and Uranus are old foes mythologically. They were son and father and Saturn wasn’t ‘nice’ to old Uranus, and Uranus has always been hard to corral.

Saturn hates not being in control, so gets good and scared when Uranus does his average thing which is seen as chaos by Saturn! His first instinct is to limit freedoms. Whether it is no allowance and child labor to suppression and oppression, depression of the people, Aquarius is famous for R/evolution! Sooner or later, everybody has to breathe! Though Aquarius is Uranus’s sign and they are sympatico, the struggle is on just the same. And Aquarius and Taurus aren’t easy either. Aquarius, the sign of Humanity, the People, wants change and Taurus has been working the land personally just that way for centuries. He has fed all those people while they didn’t even know who he was. He says no way. It’s going to take some time. They are all strong on their own merit.

Squares don’t have to be ‘bad.’ That’s not to say it doesn’t take work. It does. Saturn is used to being in charge of the family, at work is often the boss or CEO. He tends to be an unquestioned traditionalist. Yet, at times, he uses scientific guidance, and things that have proven themselves over time. He is generally experienced and honored for his accomplishments. What? You disagree?!? Uranus is a genius out of the box thinker and doesn’t care what you think. There is always more in the Universe and the time has come for this part! He’s often not around, so he and Saturn have not had many encounters. But when Uranus invents something significant, you are likely to have to make some adjustments. Uranus isn’t always socially adept, so it may take a little time to shake it out. Once Saturn gets the idea how to use the new stuff to his advantage, he’s all ears! He knows it will save time and increase revenue in the long run. Uranus doesn’t always do much adapting, he just goes on to the next invention. But there is a part of him that may need a ‘Dad’ to help him get his ideas into use. Just a tad of discipline can get a satisfying return! Focusing on a single topic can get the job done. Don’t hover, but do check on him time to time and bring food. AQ forgets to eat. Buying him a new computer, better than the one he’s got, would sure go a long way!

Some time tested old ways will simply always work best. No matter how brilliant you are, how entertaining, you can show off all you want, but it’s just not the best. It’s fun to foray into the ethers to test the principle, but when something like perhaps a better way to handle climate or saving lives comes along, your time could be put to a more humane use. Saturn it is your job to help work the process, provide materials, a work location, and get the time your Uranian friend needs.

On a more personal basis, ‘No, we’re not taking the plane, and you’re not my friend.’ There could be some iffy relationships for quite a while. Some of them never will pan out. Saturn can appear aloof and judgmental, while Uranus simply forgets you exist. Saturn is skeptical, even cynical. Uranus is often brilliant but doesn’t always appear credible, often is way over the heads of other mere mortals. Sometimes their socks don’t match and hygiene lacking when they lock themselves away inventing intricate sequences that require a chain of attention. So Saturnians, put on a smile and Uranians, take a bath, LOL! Neither of you may be able to do it without the other. In fact, on a really personal basis, they could be found putting all differences aside, breaking the rules together, in the back of the law library being kinky!

Saturn is no fool. He sees the worth and will dedicate some of his efforts to get over old fears and take a chance on new instruments, tools, techniques, and get used to planes! Good and brave Soul.

Age may be a factor. On one side it’s physical matters, could be stronger than ever. On the other side, Saturn is known for wisdom. They can be fearful and greedy, or known for integrity and their word, their honor. They can be solid mentors. Uranians can be flighty, ungrounded, forgetful as they get older, even when they are younger! But that no rules, free zone frequency they have lets them find rare connections never tapped before. They are downright etheric and at home traveling that stratosphere!

Chances are you will be pressed somewhere along this sequence to raise yourself up because there is so much work being needed on the planet today. Some friends will naturally fall away, while others will feel betrayed or abandoned. You will likely acquire some new friends against the odds and surprise yourself at not only the extent of the efforts you made, but how much you are so glad you did!

Behind the planets, are their signs, Aquarius, Uranus’s sign, and Taurus. Saturn is already in Aquarius, so a get along is already happening. Saturn is good with fellow earth sign Taurus. Simple, sensible, practical, steadfast. Yet there are moments. Taurus is earth herself. who knows who is more solid or stubborn, Saturn of rocky Capricorn, or Taurus the soil settled in the valleys going nowhere? Taurus farms those fields and feeds us. They know the weather cycles, work all year and sometimes all night, strong as the bulls and oxen they have used for centuries. No one is really pushing them because we all want to eat! Aquarius rules the air that is over the land. Wind cleans the trees, blows leaves and limbs down to fertilize the soil. Air may fly about, but Earth is always there for them, safe and trusted. Yet, their natures are so different. Do they actually communicate? Taurus takes care of his own work. Aquarius is unhindered. Maybe that is their elemental connection. But Aquarius is flight, the birds, that see and need the land for homes that climate change is threatening. AQ is the r/evolutionist that protects the land, takes care of its new climatic needs, gathers like minded people and groups to problem solve. Taurus and AQ consult for the best natural methods and peaceful ways of coexisting.

Uranus in Taurus is bringing many changes to our bodies, COVID-19 being our latest challenge. The long Saturn conjunct Pluto, Jupiter joining them, then Mars of infections, have made a weakness in the valence. Saturn research and Aquarian/Uranian research and networking are working hard to take care of us. Many people will cross old prejudicial boundaries to help each other just as with environmental disasters. Friendships will be formed from shared hardship, equally working human to human regardless of other differences, softening some of those as we get to know each other better and talk things over. We are all evolving and changing to higher laws. Day by day, breath by breath.  See more about Uranus in Taurus

Date wise this is a unique situation astrologically. Saturn goes into Aquarius March 21, 2020 and immediately is less than 5 degrees of the square to Uranus! They hover at just about 5 degrees apart until May 10/11 when Saturn retrogrades. Uranus goes on about his business. Jan 2 2021, they are back in 5 degrees range again, getting closer until their first exact square Jan 17, 2021 at 7 AQ! They square their 2nd time June 14 at 13 AQ, and their last time Dec 23 at 11 AQ. So what we have is the close square March 21 through May 10/11 having the ingredients, experiencing the energy. Difficulties are hinted at, dancing around each other. They are getting used to the friction, differences of style, working at solutions, thinking on things.

4.19.20 Notes: Things have immediately proven themselves with this aspect. As Saturn went into Aquarius, due to the C-19 pandemic, air and cruise travel was stopped and we began to have social distancing. Saturn rules restrictions or stoppages and Uranus rules air travel, groups and friends. Panic shortages happened when people realized the possible extent of the Virus and the stock market plummeted – Aquarius shocks. Aquarius and its planet Uranus rule banking and monies of business. Many businesses closed and some will fail permanently – Saturn closures, bankruptcy. Others have gotten Aquarian creative doing drive by and online distribution, Aquarian ingenuity literally at work! There will be many new ways of living, different and better choices made.

Helpfully, during the 2020 first lap of Saturn’s square with Uranus, Saturn is also close to its sextile with Chiron in Aries! This is the square’s companion aspect in 2021, will help with the challenges of the square. But that aspect won’t be made until Feb 9, 2021, just nine days before the square to Uranus. Please see more about the square below. Saturn will help Chiron with his medical work, teaching and new businesses, bring supporting organizations into play. Law, and long term commitments to fighting for the underdog will be offered remarkable support. The sextile with Chiron in Aries, will give more courage to heal, expeditiously speed things up. It will trial new possibilities carefully! In 2020, Saturn, Uranus and Chiron will get the ideas, preview what to do and how to do it, but for now it won’t come to fruition. Now through May 20/11 is a preparatory period.

In addition, Chiron and Uranus, the two planets Saturn is aspecting, are connected with each other! Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, about a degree apart! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! A promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! Chiron & Uranus continue humming along in their semisextile. They will be completing their 13 years long journey together in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus

The first lap in 2020 is from 0 to 7 degrees. The exact aspects are when your planets are 2 to 9 degrees, 8 to 15, and 6 to 13. You see the #7 falls in all of them and 8, 9 in all the last three. If you have planets at these common degrees they will all link up with your chart. The other degrees will be specific to their timing.

Those of you with planets at those degree of the fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, especially Taurus and AQ, will likely have the most challenges. Aquarius will favor the air and fire signs except Leo, while Taurus will favor earth and water signs except Scorpio. You may need to see your astrologer to sort it all out for you. It’s very possible there will be mixed effects.

Evolution is not a quitter. Best!

Saturn Sagittarius Path Wisdom

This is the time of the Scholar. Sagittarius rules university level education and Saturn believes in betterment and credibility. Worthy hard work will be done to achieve long term goals. There may be delays, short funds from time to time, but stay with it! Saturn is also knowledge gained through experience, mentors, elders, ancient sacred Beings. Saturn is Sacred Rules, respect, authority, the rigors of science, laws of Nature. Boundaries, keys, thresholds. Saturn takes Sagittarian ideas, focuses all the options, protects their integrity. This combo establishes a moral compass, code of ethics.

Saturn in Sagittarius is also Master Teachers here to make their mark! They consider the daily work ethic, as well as profound ethics that stand the test of time. We learn in every level we work at, sometimes humbly on our very knees no matter how high ranking we think we are. Our children teach us. Religion and source of life, where our Souls are traveling to and how we do it, are important. Some philosophies will be rigid, perhaps challenged and crumble, to our great fear, devastation, humiliation. At times, Saturn in Sagittarius can be faithless, while at others have a rock of Gibraltar missionary or disciple faith. Sometimes it will be built brick by brick, true and respected, prove its worth. Saturn chisels out the faults, a Master Craftsman at work. Let go and get light. What needs protection will be guarded. Where keys and a gate are needed, they will be installed.

Saturn is the Builder. From the desire for more knowledge comes construction. It is time to build the Temple for the Teachers, churches, schools, with stone steps that never fail, that we may learn more together. There may be cold times, there could be slippery ice, but regardless of challenging tests, we go up the mountain of Time. Saturn rules the knees we bend with every one of those steps. At times we are humbled to get down on our knees to pray for strength, guidance to make it, ever so grateful when we do.

Sagittarius likes to play as much as Saturn loves to work! Sagittarius is exploration, determining one’s focus, perusing the principles of all Faiths. It speeds along in races, autos, skiing, horses and gambles it will win, ever optimistic! It travels from ashrams in Spirit to mountain tops with forever views! Without these infusions, Saturn might merely plod along. But with this spice, it is enlivened and even tempted to tag along at times! Besides, it’s like herding kittens! Though Saturn can harness runaway Sag energy and guide it well, Sag will never be entirely contained! At the drop of their hat, they may be off to surf on another continent or take off on a surprise vacation they just won! Lower travel rates may make travel quite accessible to low budget travelers though there may be delays. Travel in the line of business makes excellent sense.

Saturn rules the next sign, Capricorn! Once our purpose is sorted, the meaning of our life apparent, Capricorn wants to build it a home! Capricorn/Saturn loves views from the top, glass, like ice, is one of its mediums! There may be cathedral type stained glass beauty, or skylights or both! There will be an ample well stocked workshop stocked with marvelous tools, have great lighting. Sag might want to build big; Saturn might build compact and sustainably for low cost and maintenance. What is built will have staying power and suit the times to come. Housing for elders will be exceptional, ie the small home communities time has come!

Money considerations will blow hot and cold. Sagittarius is optimistic, Saturn not. Sag wants to buy the big one, and thinks more money can come anytime, and sometimes that’s true, no need to worry. Saturn cautiously tries to keep things on schedule as planned. And that can work too. Keep a basic bank balance; stay connected to supporters. Gambling will be curtailed. Saturn is expert at finding the lowest common denominator, honing to the bone, getting the most return for the least expense. Be cautious about imports, though experienced Sagittarius importers may bring in the goods at a great price; Saturn knows exactly where to market them, the perfect projects to use them in.

Work that has been carried on beyond it’s time will likely be let go. Certain bothersome fragments will be let go; the time tending them will be better spent. Other work will be satisfactorily completed against the odds through sheer perseverance and righteous optimism. The tower is completed, the summit reached. The structure is strong. On the other hand, do periodic checkups to watch for use of cheap shoddy materials, unsafe shortcuts. Funding needs to be adequate to the time and materials rightfully needed.

Sagittarius rules hips and thighs and your liver. Your hips may suffer, or you may lose weight and be sleek as a fast footed Gazelle on the savanna! Thankfully, Saturn is a conscientious monitor, good at keeping vows. Eat less kibble is what my Vet says to me about my dog. More veggies, less fatty foods, candy, chocolate, alcohol. Sag loves to get outdoors and exercise. Hopefully that will help your hips and thighs too.

As to your liver, it is a sacred organ. You must have something to live FOR. Saturn is the planet of Karma and Dharma. What you do must express your divine commitment, the Mission of your life, the work of your Soul. With Saturn in Sagittarius, the Path of your life, all our lives, is being tuned up. We are dropping the chaff, the inconsequential. We are finding the true purpose of our existence and stepping up to the plate. At times we think we do what we must, but are surprised to find it eloquently satisfying. And we learn how to teach our Mission, a further satisfying sharing.

Don’t tax your system with overeating, too many things to do, other people’s business. Being generous has its limits. Your true responsibility is to do what YOU do best; let others do theirs! You can’t fool yourself when your body talks. Be true to yourself, be real, mind your own business first. You are the one who lives in your body and you can’t help others when your body is down.

Saturn is on a 29 year cycle and the adventure of this one is just beginning! Together Saturn and Sag can plan a potent future that the gears may mesh in a smooth steadily forward pace. It can be fearful or secure the potential that Sagittarius offers! If you are able to prevail, stay steady in the Light toward your successes. Together we will work hard for the rights for education for all, the poor, immigrants, women, the children of the world.

Finish up that writing that you started long ago. Do the publishing. Share your ideas, prophecy. Take your sweet place along the road of Life.

Jupiter opp Neptune Sea World Turtle Rescue

Florida Sea World released 14 turtles that were brought to the park due to cold related injuries. Big Mama! 250 lbs of Green Sea Turtle, along with another Green Sea Turtle were released in the Banana River.

This aspect is a big part of the Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon Sep 12, 2015!

The day before Saturn returns to Sagittarius, Jupiter probes the Neptune ocean of rhythms, ebbs and flows. It meanders on a glassy sea, gliding hither and yon with little to stop it. It rides the surf at tideline, exploring crevices and creatures, weaving among the shoreline seaweeds. It pounds down on the sands and corals, changing the coastlines of our lives, the perimeters of our existence. There are magic moments of fusion and sudden separations leaving us breathless with insights beyond ordinary belief! Our travels take us into the caves of darkness, on the sea spray up into the luminous sunlight, magical moonlight, scattered to the Four Directions! And all that can happen in one day.

Jupiter is known for lively curiosity, impregnating us with irresistible ideas, becoming expansion and glory as we make them come true! We travel farther than usual, share our stories. Lives are woven together in a continuous tapestry following the path of our adventures. We are all one….

Neptune, the God of the Sea, is ruler of a mighty kingdom! Plenty of room for Jupiter to get its feet wet. So many ports, and they change every time you visit! The Motion of Life is ever emerging, awakening, alive with evolution. Jupiter loves to see what’s next, and Neptune has infinite capacity to absorb and merge all things, whether of mind or Spirit, becoming yet another something never seen before! The Tides are like a giant washing machine, salting, sanding, sudsing away, making ever finer particles, minerals, so it all fits in a knit.

Jupiter may bring big tides, huge ships, big animals at the shoreline from bears to whales, the biggest of their kind! Photographers be ready for very long shoots or exceptional panoramic views, superb underwater photography, telescopic beauty in the night time!

On the inner planes, the unknown may feel safe, as if you had the Guide of the Universe with you, Protector Guardian – dream time astral travel perhaps. Take a chance. A detail may carry you through the eye of the needle, call you to a supreme at one ment, a compassion beyond words. You may come to believe there is life after death, a thread of many lifetimes. There may be a near death experience, or a fill-your-heart appreciation of simple daily things of the precious sacred life you live.

Don’t be confused. It’s a choice. Stay steady in your thinking. But if it quavers you either know your weak spot or you have landed in a zone of magical change and it’s time to let go of what’s too hard and fast in your life. The future is more attractive than the past pains. Watch it, befriend it, check it out. If it tickles and niggles, pay attention. That just may be the next step. Oppositions can stand forlorn on opposite shores or a bridge can be built, a hand stretched across the table. Sometimes a little separation is a huge relief, gives important perspective, time to think for yourself by yourself yet be aware there are others with contributions. We may be apart, but not alone.

Virgo is an incredibly kind sign, human, plant and animal caretakers, and in so many other capacities. Jupiter wants the world to know that. Neptune in its own sign Pisces is the compassionate rescuer, anywhere from addicted humans to injured animals. Sometimes we are on one side needing that care and rescue ourselves; sometimes we are the other side able to give it. A sweet veteran I know delivers free warm meals to an old man I garden with who had a stroke. The vet says he’s been there; he too needed help at a period in his life. Payback time. Let’s be there for each other. Generously.

Neptune is the deepest Pool of the Soul. It takes us to Spirit, fathoms our dreams, knows our most subtle fears, has the compassion of all Being. It makes Music without words, is Divine Love. Jupiter looks across the table at this panorama of humanity and knows its mission. In Virgo it starts right then and there putting puzzle pieces together, making a fusion of the future. It has a year to do its part.

Jupiter opposite Neptune happens the very last day of Saturn in Scorpio, the end, maturity of a 29 year cycle! It is an aspect of faith and understanding, insights. It will secure the knowing of the potent mission Saturn has had in Scorpio – the profound needs we have for true intimacy, financial adequacy, the deepest meanings of our lives, the sacred arts of healing. The experiences of the last 2+ years will provide a foundation for the sacred teachings Saturn in Sagittarius will offer. Together we will work hard for the rights to education for all, the poor, immigrants, women, the children of the world.

Jupiter opposite Neptune intuitively senses our greater purpose; Saturn in Sagittarius travels that Path of Wisdom and makes it so.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces the third and last time Valentine’s Day Feb 14!  Taurus and Pisces can both be very sweet signs, though Taurus is sometimes thought to be selfish and unmovable, and Pisces simply oblivious.  Both have very strong associations with Venus, and so does Chiron!  Some think of Chiron as the ultimate relationship planet, THE marriage planet!  Venus associated with Taurus, can be a beautiful body, love, attracting money.  With Pisces, the love of Soul, soul mates, surrender to another or a cause one loves more than one loves oneself, the ability to live in sacrifice, poverty.  At times sacrifice, immersion to exclusion, can be a form of abdication, running away, non contribution, another form of selfishness.  Other times the Soul’s journey depends on letting go of materialism, solitude for healing.  Pisces and Taurus/Venus rule the Arts – Taurus is sculpting, Venus is beauty of all kinds, Pisces is film, theatre, music.  In simple earthly ways, Taurus is grains in the fields; Pisces provides the fishes – the loaves and the fishes – let no one go hungry, body or mind!  Jupiter wants generous well-being through knowledge.  Chiron is intentional healing, in Pisces, spiritual wisdom.  Learn and be healed, be wise and teach.  Education releases Magic!  More

This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide.  The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow.  But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction.  The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus.  Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word! 

Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then.  It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures.  Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity.  A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’ 

Scorpio Moon?  Taurus is mine.  Scorpio is ours.  Sharing.  Mutual funds.  A gathering of resources from the deepest realms.  The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust.  The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades.  Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words.  The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.   

Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day.  This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning.  What binds us?  Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain?  Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level?  To return to our prime mission?  To let go and keep walking?

Walk it, share as you can.  I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer.  The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center.  Join me in Spirit if you wish.  By your grace.
