Read more about the Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius for May 23, 2021 in the Weekly Astrology Horoscope.
Saturn officially stations Retrograde in Aquarius on May 23, 2021 at 5:20 am ET.
Do you remember what was happening when Saturn entered Aquarius on March 21, 2020?
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, the ruler of Aquarius, is in Taurus. All this talk of biotechnology with vaccines, digital ID tattoos and universal cryptocurrency in our future is right on time.
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.
