Saturn Squares Uranus- “Structure meets Rebellion”- For All Zodiac Signs
The 2nd longer-term connection between stern Saturn and shocking Uranus is already underway and peaks on June 14. This influence causes restlessness and high anxiety, so it can be difficult to stick to normal routines and schedules. In addition, there’s a sense of urgency in the air, so the atmosphere can feel chaotic, filled with unexpected shocks and surprises.
The Saturn/Uranus Square is an unusual Cosmic connection, especially a long-term one that repeatedly comes together, such as this one, and all year long, and we are dealing with this unbalanced energy.
Saturn is the conservative and authoritative planet and is in the progressive sign of Aquarius all year long. Uranus is the progressive planet of rebellion and revolution and is in the emotional sign of Taurus all year long!
This connection is rare, so when these two planets clash, their energies can feel oppressive, and we might find ourselves at a crossroads looking at two different paths or missions we need to follow in life. Even if we’re working towards two different goals, we probably will end up with similar results. This energy is the old versus the new. We may have to let go of something to move forward or stick to traditions while starting something new, which can be difficult.
Saturn’s tense Square to Uranus generates friction. As these two planets clash, they create tension between our need for freedom and independence versus our desire for structure and stability. Ideally, if we get creative, we can strike a balance, gain our independence, and simultaneously meet our plans and goals. But this takes work and commitment.
Still, limitations or restrictions are not as easy to deal with as rules will be enforced. We need boundaries set in place to feel more in control and less chaotic. When we attempt to assert our need for individuality, freedom, or originality and try to do things our way, we can be undermined by our own need to keep our lives grounded and secure. It’s a push and pulls kind of energy.
But we may not feel content with conforming, and there can be sudden surprises or unexpected twists and turns that force us to do something differently. This influence can free us from old habits and learned behaviors. So it’s important to be flexible, as we may have to make changes to our plans, especially while Mercury is still Retrograde, through the end of June. This influence can cause even more confusion. Trying to balance starting up something new or different while keeping things agreeable and traditional is challenging.
Any setbacks we experience now are usually only temporary and could
could lead us towards new paths or solutions. But this aspect does cause some real frustrations. There can be a difference of opinion, which can feel more problematic than usual, as it blocks progress and causes delays. The people we normally rely on may not be as reliable right now. So we may end up having to do things for ourselves or on our own.
This long-term Saturn Square Uranus transit meeting is the 2nd of three meetings in 2021, with the last one occurring on December 24, 2021.
