Saturn officially stations Direct in Aquarius on October 10, 2021 at 10:18 pm ET.
If you haven’t watched the earthquake in La Palma, it’s quite the sight to see, especially at night. It really looks like the phoenix rising from the ashes – destruction and rebirth, symbol of Pluto. It’s mesmerizing to watch. Incredible earth.
The restrictions, rules, limitations by authority which as indicated by what Saturn represents has been imposed on the collective social world of the people which Aquarius represents.
Saturn in Aquarius indicates a structure of rulership being established over the minds of the collective, where people are grouped into categories of social restrictions.
Now that we have seen what this has done to us, and doing to people, it’s time for us to change the rules. For if we do not, the freedom that Aquarius represents will only continue to be held back by those in positions of power.
With Mercury Retograde in fellow air sign Libra as Saturn is stationing Direct, it is time for us to look at what is happening, to recognize where there is injustice and imbalance and to find our way out of what is being imposed unfairly.
We can see that technology which is associated with Aquarius, is being used by those in positions of authority to use the power of Saturn to make a type of mental and physical prison of our social lives. Censorship, masks, passports, social distancing of 6 feet apart (Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun), restrictions of all kinds are being imposed as a method of acquiring power over the people heading society toward a passport precursor segue into a social credit score system where rules would only continuously compound indefinitely, adding more reasons for restrictions until humanity is trapped by a technological big brother system of control.
Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and with Pluto in Capricorn now transformation by authority is brought through destruction and rebirth and much of which is occurring is indicated as being done through a planned process of deception and secrecy as Pluto rules what is hidden (occult) and Plutocrats are pulling the strings through wealth and power. Pluto symbolizes power, and also abuse, and thus abuse of power and in Capricorn it points to revealing such in the political and corporate realm of power. More about Pluto in Capricorn.
We must all get serious about what is happening or the power of authority, indicated by Saturn, will continue to work toward holding humanity back from our freedom to decide and choose our future for ourselves.
Saturn rules time. It is time for people to get real about the signs and recognize where the plan and goal of those in authority are heading humanity before it is too late. As they rush to install their system of control we often hear it said that “we are running out of time” as they are hurrying to push hard to establish their control system. Well, what they are running out of time for is that people are waking up, and they fear too many will wake up before they can achieve their goal of enslavement. It’s time for the collective to wake up before it is too late to stop what is happening and put freedom first.
Saturn stationing Direct in Aquarius means people need work hard collectively, together to take back control over their own lives, especially in the face of an ever developing list of new rules. The rebellious quality of Aquarius reminds us of choosing to make one’s own rules as living according to the rules of others can make people feel trapped.
Freedom is rooted in truth and trust. Control is rooted in fear and selfishness.
In order for freedom and truth to flourish, we need to be able to speak freely to reveal the truth that is hidden and pour it into the collective consciousness.
There’s no denying that responsibility and accountability have been thrown right out the window. With Mercury Retrograde in Libra now along with the Sun, and Pluto now Direct in Capricorn, perhaps it’s time that things change in law and justice For the people instead of against the people.
It’s time to awaken into the higher mind, instead of being trapped by the constructs imposed through collective mindset.
With Mercury Retrograde we have to be extra aware that trickery is in the air. For instance coercion by mandates rely on fear to manifest consent and agreement because mandates are not actually laws. Mercury Retrograde in Libra reminds us to aware of loopholes and tricks that are manufacturing control. It is also wise to be aware that changing definitions of words to fit agendas does not change facts.
Aquarius reminds us to have hope, and Saturn in Aquarius reminds us to attain hope it is required to say No to whatever and whoever is blocking us and holding us back from true freedom.
Saturn is Direct in Aquarius until June 4, 2022 where he will go Retrograde in Aquarius again.
That’s right around the time the dramatic shift toward Social Distancing began. Since Saturn signifies limitations, obstacles and restrictions, and Aquarius is about Social Groups and the Collective Consciousness… that is quite symbolic wouldn’t you say? Talk about synchronicity!
Saturn is serious business, and represents authority figures, structure and rules. While Saturn has been in Aquarius so far, we can certainly see how authority figures have been putting so many limitations on us socially.
Aquarius is about the future, and asks, “What do we really want our future to look like?”
Aquarius is supposed to be about Awakening right. So what is it going to take for people to wake up to what’s really going on in the world and how we can create a more positive future?
What we know for sure, is that humanity needs to evolve with Saturn in Aquarius. Saturn changing direction in Aquarius signifies that we need to look back and observe how the world has been operating for a long time and become more responsible with our choices to make the world a better place to live. Saturn is the World card in the Tarot.
So, now that Saturn is going Retrograde in Aquarius will we be seeing a slow easing of social restrictions? Will we see a modification to how things are handled? Will people start to review what has been happening over the past couple of months with a different perspective? What technological changes are we seeing in our world?
As Aquarius is an Air Sign, signifying communications and information, thoughts and words, Saturn here represents limitations and obstacles to information. Aquarius also represents technology, so looking to how social media and information exchanges online and through mass media are limited in scope. We could see more shifts in the social world regarding censorship and limitations on free speech.
Aquarius is symbolized by two waves, like electric waves or air waves, so it is wise to be more conscious of the information that is being beamed toward your mind.
Since Saturn is in Aquarius, which signifies powerful restrictions on our collective consciousness, this is an important time for all of us to consider how the authority figures and powerful people and influences in the media affect what we all think and believe, and how that impacts our world and our lives.
We are all facing karmic consequences of decisions made by people in power. Those in positions of authority and in the media have a lot of power to steer millions of people’s thoughts and beliefs, which significantly impacts the collective consciousness globally.
With so many conflicting points of view, it isn’t easy to know what to believe is true or false these days.
This is a great time to ask more serious questions about how our thoughts and beliefs are being formed, and by who.
Free Your Mind. Think for Yourself.
With Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius, this signifies a time to take responsibility for our own thoughts instead of allowing others to decide for us what to think and believe. Do your own research and draw your own conclusions from a wide variety of information.
People’s minds are set to change during this period as we review what kind of world we really want to live in and under whose authority.
Aquarius wants freedom, especially freedom of thought, freedom of mind, and freedom for the future. So, although people, media leaders, and social media corporations appoint themselves as “The Authorities on information,” and frequently discourage viewers from thinking beyond what they have to say, or discourage you from digging deeper to find the truth, it is your right to think for yourself, ask questions and do research to find out what is really true or not. Those in positions of social power may try to censor and block you from gaining knowledge or sharing information, but is that really their right to appoint themselves as the deciders of what information you can access and what you can and cannot think and believe?
Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn so it is wise to consider what’s happening in Capricorn regarding politics, business and the economy – Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn is a great sleuth that wants to dig up all the dirt in politics and the business world.
In Aquarius, with Saturn Retrograde we are also likely to see more scrutiny of organizations, foundations and philanthropic initiatives that operate and have great influence in our world on a large scale. How much power and influence do they have working together while collecting billions of dollars from tax payers to pass around to each other to strengthen and establish their goals? Saturn and Pluto both ask, are they really altruistic or are they just power hungry and benefiting each others financial goals at the top?
Uranus is also symbolic of rebelliousness and living life on your own terms. So are we going to see more people protesting against the restrictions and the pressure applied to our lives by those in powerful positions? People will want to break free from being forced into doing and not doing things in their lives. As Uranus is in Taurus, people want financial freedom and not to have their financial livelihoods suppressed.
Human rights and freedoms will be in focus.
With Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn and Saturn Retrograde, we are very likely to see a whole lot more dirt dug up about what is going on behind the scenes by those in powerful positions in the world. Those with overwhelming domination in our lives will most likely be scrutinized strongly as more people rebel against restrictions.
With Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius it’s like stepping out of the Matrix and deciding whether you’re going to take the red pill or the blue pill.
Saturn officially enters Aquarius on March 21, 2020 at 11:58 pm ET.
Saturn will go Retrograde in Aquarius on May 11, 2020 and enter back into Capricorn on July 1, 2020.
Saturn will be back in Capricorn from July 1, 2020 to December 17, 2020. (Retrograde in Capricorn until stationing Direct on September 29, 2020)
Finally, Saturn will enter Aquarius for the long haul from December 17, 2020 to March 7, 2023.
The Big Shift
Saturn entering Aquarius says, “This is a time of serious change in the world as we move into a different future.” And, it says a lot more…
Just as Saturn is leaving Capricorn and entering Aquarius, we are seeing huge challenges in our world as the coronavirus impacts us all globally.
We have Mars, Jupiter and Pluto meeting in conjunction in Capricorn just as Saturn is transiting into Aquarius. These are huge power players that can bring a lot of major change especially as they meet in conjunction and their power symbolically gets more intense. No wonder everything that is happening in the world is coming to a major head.
Mars and Pluto meeting can indicate fears, while Jupiter expands things globally. I also talk more about these things in the New Moon in Aries Horoscope.
Capricorn is the sign largely concerned with the material world, political and business matters and the economy where the biggest power players and authority figures run the show.
Capricorn is also the sign of careers, so we are seeing the tension and fears build as people’s careers are affected at this time and businesses are closing affecting our economy.
Also consider that Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and Uranus is in Taurus now which represents shocks and surprises to jobs, income, work, money, stock market. So we can see what’s happening in the financial world and our careers are seriously being brought to attention now just as Saturn enters Aquarius!
Saturn is the planet of restriction, limitations and challenges and Saturn is the ruler of both Capricorn and Aquarius so we are seeing major emphasis here with this transit tying Capricorn and Aquarius together.
Saturn is a heavy planet symbolizing structure, order and rules. Here we see policies putting limits on how we operate in the real world from the top down.
The current quarantines demonstrate the prison-like, restrictive aspect Saturn can represent to create and establish order.
A hugely obvious example we see in the world just as Saturn is entering Aquarius is the strong push for social distancing as well, and people are being pushed to work from home, which is getting more people to work online using technology which is very Aquarian.
As a lot of people are in quarantine, this can be a meaningful time to positively to recreate your life and tap into that creative, innovative force of Aquarius.
Also keep in mind that the Destiny Point is in Cancer as Saturn enters Aquarius, which indicates the importance of being at home, with family and those closest. You can use this time to reconnect with your home life for your personal well being.
Aquarius reminds us that through challenges, we can look to the positive and actively make this a more hopeful time where we can create opportunities to bring out the best in ourselves. Using this time to appreciate nature and to dream up innovative ideas, and to get creative is a positive way to use your time now. A positive mindset, with efforts towards solutions can help us achieve new, positive outcomes for our future.
More About Aquarius
Aquarius has 2 ruling planets. We know that Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, but Saturn is also the ancient ruling planet of Aquarius, while Uranus is the modern ruling planet of Aquarius. Uranus is in Taurus now.
Aquarius is an air sign which represents the mind. Like Gemini the twins, and Libra the balancing scales, Aquarius also has a duality of the mind which is symbolized by 2 waves. This can represent the flow of air, and as Aquarius is known as the water bearer, the flow of water, or the currents of electricity. Aquarius symbolizes the future, sciences and technologies, as well as pouring wisdom into the collective consciousness.
Saturn in Aquarius says it is time for the collective to get more serious and responsible in how we are thinking and what we are doing in our social world and material world. Challenges can lead to an awakening.
With two rulers, Saturn the restrictor, and Uranus the liberator, there can be the duality, the battle of the mind over opposing ideas. Our perceptions could go either way, but since Saturn is so serious, it can indicate a more serious frame of mind is important to utilize now.
Aquarians are known to be fickle minded. If you’ve ever known an Aquarian you’ll know that they can get very excited and enthusiastic about an idea (Uranus), and as a fixed sign, they can become very stuck, serious and fixated on a specific idea (Saturn), upholding it as the most important thing in the world. But then, when another idea suddenly comes up or new information catches their fancy, which can be totally opposing and contradictory to their original idea they were so stuck on, they can suddenly uphold the new idea as their new gospel truth and throw the previous idea right out the window. Aquarians can get fixed on an idea, but just as strongly switch to a new idea quickly and drastically changing what they think and believe.
Aquarians can also be hopeful and positive one minute, and pessimistic and negative the next, or they can have long periods where they are thinking in one direction, then suddenly switch and be in another frame of mind and ride that wave for a long period of time. At times it can seem that their mind is distant, off in la la land and drifting somewhere in between reality and fantasy.
The benefit of having Saturn in Aquarius on personal levels is that it will ensure you are more picky about the people you associate with, particularly friends and social contacts. Meaningful relationships built at this time can be long lasting. Saturn can bring necessary structure to groups so they operate in a practical, methodical, orderly way to ensure intended results are reached. Saturn in Aquarius also reminds us that being responsible can lead to meaningful rewards.
The problem with Saturn in Aquarius is that it can lead people to feel more isolated, restricted, disconnected or even lonely in their social lives. Social anxiety can be an issue, especially if you have Aquarius as your ascendant. The controlling aspect of Saturn can cause difficulties in relationships. But, mature, responsible relationships are likely to be stronger during this period.
More On How We Could See Saturn Demonstrated In Aquarius
While Saturn has been finishing in Capricorn we are seeing the powerful connection of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn leading to a lot of dramatic and huge changes in our world. Of course Mars, Saturn and Pluto do indicate fear, while Jupiter is our thoughts and beliefs expanding globally.
Now as Saturn leaves Capricorn to enter Aquarius we are seeing these dramatic changes in a lockdown of our society to try to stop and contain the coronavirus from spreading. Quarantines are in effect around the world leading up to Saturn entering Aquarius. Social Distancing is already showing signs of putting Saturn’s limits on Aquarian socializing and social groups in the real world.
Since Aquarius is largely about social groups and the collective, and Saturn is about limitations and obstacles, we can see how the astrology is reflected in our real world experiences.
But of course, with the Aquarian rebellious side, a lot of people are not taking the rules of authority seriously. Unfortunately, what this means is that the rules of the quarantines are likely to get stricter if the coronavirus continues to spread over a longer period of time.
Saturn is about time and karma as well, so what people do will have a significant influence on how long the coronavirus issue continues to be a problem.
There are a lot of differing perspectives at this time, and a lot of conspiracies about what is going on in the world, which is to be expected with Pluto in Capricorn – indicating looking at the underbelly and the darker, hidden side of what’s going on behind the scenes with the political power structure in our world.
Aquarius is a sign of technology, and we have seen technology in China used as the system locks people down – with drones telling people to go back home if they are outside, and to put their masks back on. It’s interesting to consider that masks are quite a symbol of not only stopping disease, but prevention of human interaction and socializing.
Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, so we will continue to see how the powers-that-be deal with putting in control measures using technology.
We are already seeing a push for people to work from home and thus using the internet and online technology for their work and careers. It could prove challenging for companies to implement social technologies quickly for people to work with Saturn entering Aquarius as Saturn slows things down significantly.
Saturn is about structure, rules, order, authority and work effort, which is greatly symbolized by the structure and operations of our society and economy. As authority takes positions of power it can be demonstrated in tougher laws and orders that can feel restricting. The strength of restriction Saturn can demonstrate can be seen in prison, a police state, and martial law. Tying this in with technology we can see a push toward a strong big brother type of system implemented by authority figures.
While Saturn is in Aquarius we are going to see much stronger push toward technology used in the workforce and online networking becoming a more dominant way of life. People who like to be in the real world can feel the push toward more online work efforts to be limiting and restrictive. Aquarius likes to feel freedom, so it can be a challenging dichotomy.
This feels like a revolutionary time because Aquarius is a revolutionary sign and Saturn is serious business. It’s like the challenges we are facing (Saturn) are pushing us into the future (Aquarius), where more people will be working online, shopping and delivery services could enter into the future. We may see drones become more commonplace over the next few years, not only for delivery services but also for authority figures to enforce more rules and methods of governance.
With Saturn in social-tech-sign Aquarius we are likely to see a continuation or further developments of social controls and restrictions online with social tech companies pushing for more control over what can and can not be said unless decidedly approved by those in positions of authority and power. Stricter social and community guidelines and rules are likely to increase while Saturn is in Aquarius. Artificial Intelligence will be used more frequently to deal with work and rules of socializing and censorship, etc.
Though we may get more heavily attached to online technologies and social networks, more people may feel like it’s overwhelming and want to step away from being online too much so they can get back in touch with the real world. We may also see more outages of the internet and social networks during this period. We started to see more signs of what Saturn in Capricorn would demonstrate when Mercury was Retrograde in Aquarius.
Saturn reminds us that rules and control measures are necessary for order out of chaos. It also reminds us that we must work together responsibly to create order. However, it could become too dominating when authority figures use it to increase their power and control.
With the dual qualities of Aquarius, we are likely to see issues of bias continue to be an issue with online communications. People could be stuck on their perspective, leading to disagreements on what is true and how people should deal with this global issue.
We are likely to see a push toward media and information that is spread influencing the minds and thoughts of people across the world collectively to be more responsible in their reporting. We could see limitations put on information that is deemed as untrue and non-factual, and media companies could have stricter rules placed on the information they disseminate to the masses to curb sensationalist, politically driven headlines that manifest hysteria.
It is also important for people to be more discerning of the information we receive through social media and media companies, as we consider what the intention is of those that are in control of what information is pushed forward. How are certain ideas and information promoted, featured, highlighted and pushed into dominating the collective consciousness and the world that intentionally manipulates what people think and believe is true about reality? How is technology, like bots, used to create a narrative that people believe? More people are likely to be hesitant in following blindly, and many may choose to restrict their media consumption in an effort to be more responsible for their own thoughts. Saturn in Aquarius can represent protecting your mind.
We are likely to see more authority, rules and policies put in place about Foundations, Non-Government Organizations, Charities, humanitarian aid and the like, looking at the structure and procedures of such organizations to ensure they are operating properly, especially in their use of finances. We could see a stop put to those operating with irresponsible practices.
We are also seeing the stock market have dramatic swings – this is Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn territory creating massive swings and expressions of fear. Plus, we have Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, in Taurus indicating shocks to the market as Taurus rules money, income, work and security.
In terms of technology and biology (Uranus in Taurus) while Saturn is in Aquarius, we are likely to see innovations and developments in medicines as the scientific community works to stop the coronavirus. Biotechnology is likely to become a more dominant part of our everyday lives heading into the future.
Interestingly, Venus is in Taurus just as Saturn enters Aquarius. I saw video of how waterways and air quality is improving dramatically since quarantines have been in place and industrial manufacturing businesses have shut down, revealing to us the beauty of nature – just how Venus in Taurus likes it.
I have a lot more to say about Saturn in Aquarius and current trends coming soon.
