Weekly Astrology Horoscope May 17 to 23, 2021. Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius.

The Big News this week is we have Saturn Stationing Retrograde in Aquarius on May 23, 2021

We have Saturn stationing Retrograde on May 23, 2021 at 5:20 am ET. Saturn will be Retrograde in Aquarius until October 10, 2021.

Remember when Saturn first entered Aquarius in March 2020, that’s when everything started getting crazy and social distancing became a new key phrase sweeping the collective mindset. Coincidentally, Saturn symbolizes restrictions associated with authority figures, and in Aquarius it is social groups which are in large focus. With Saturn Retrograde we are likely to see more changes in restrictions and limitations, and push back on how political and corporate authority including Big Tech is mandating rules over the social lives of the collective. Perhaps we’ll get a little more breathing room and we’ll see those in positions of authority backtrack or held responsible for heavy handed decisions. As the ruler of Capricorn, with Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius we could see many reversals and mistakes by people in positions of power with karmic consequences, which I also talked more about with Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn now as well.

It’s very interesting that just at the time Jupiter left Aquarius and entered Pisces on May 13th, 2021 the mask mandates by the CDC are now shifting. It will be very interesting to see what happens when Jupiter goes Retrograde in Pisces on June 20th and then retrogrades back into Aquarius on July 28, 2021.


We also have The Sun, Mercury and Venus in focus this week.

The Sun in Taurus is in positive connection to Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn on May 17, 2021 at 5:48 am ET. This can indicate a strong likelihood for deep and probing insights, like a sleuth with a flashlight in the dark or an auditor looking for forensic evidence. It’s a great time to research and get to the bottom of things and shine a light on the unknown. Persistence and patience can pierce through the veil. We could get a lot of behind the scenes insights that reveal what’s really going on in the financial and political world especially. We’re likely to hear some key insights and revelations about corruption in high places of course. Decisions by leadership and those in positions of power relating to financial security and money matters from personal income to big business and the stock market deserve attention. 

Venus in Gemini meets the Destiny Point on May 17, 2021 at 4:37 pm ET. This is a great time to have a heart to heart conversation. Sending a message of love or a gift to someone you care about is recommended now. Conversations while enjoying time in the garden, smelling the flowers, or having a picnic with delicious foods can lead to great connections. This is a great time for romance and if you’re single this can be a destined time to meet someone new. Financial news and information should be considered more seriously at this time for signs of what’s to come.

Venus in Gemini will also connect with Chiron in Aries on May 18, 2021 at 7:43 am ET and Venus connects positively with Saturn in Pisces on May 19, 2021 at 9:57 pm ET. This indicates healing relationships and identities. Love can heal old wounds of the ego. With Saturn stationing Retrograde in just a few days, Venus (the goddess of love) connecting with Saturn reminds us that we can change our karma for the better, and it is through communications that we can create the greatest changes. People are likely to want to have less restrictions on their social lives so people can better connect with one another in the real world.


The Sun enters Gemini May 20, 2021 at 3:36 am ET for the last month of spring – next month it will be the Summer Solstice. Fresh in Gemini, the Sun will quickly be in difficult connection to Jupiter in Pisces on May 21, 2021 at 11:02 am ET. This can indicate new perspectives and awareness that can press people beyond their usual limits. A shift in beliefs are possible and may not be so easy to accept. Religious and philosophical conversations will require open minds, but that’s not always easy for a lot of people, so disagreements about what is true and what isn’t are likely for many. As Gemini reminds us of duality and is double-minded, there is always another way of looking at an issue. Superficial gossip, especially anything that pushes buttons about different beliefs and facts can create issues.

Mercury in Gemini is in difficult aspect to Neptune in Pisces on May 22, 2021 at 10:48 pm ET. This further indicates that communications could have some issues this week especially where there are misunderstandings or confusion of details. Facts just might not make a lot of sense now and contradictions are possible. Deceptions could be highlighted and revealed. This is not considered the best time to make firm decisions. Marketing can be especially obvious in deceptive practices.

As mentioned, at the end of the week Saturn will Retrograde in Aquarius on May 23, 2021 at 5:20 am ET talked about at the beginning of this weekly horoscope. Read more about Saturn in Astrology.
