A Healing Challenge -Uranus sq. Saturn 2021
My astrological focus this week is on the challenge between the two planets: Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus, to be exact on 24 December 2021. I wrote briefly about this 90 degree square aspect on 21 November, saying I might add to it later. Because I wrote about Saturn in Aquarius last week, I’ll focus this week on the other player in this current cosmic game, Uranus in Taurus. I also checked the Sabian degree for the symbolism behind the specific Aquarius degree, and came up with an enlightening perspective. It’s the one I’ll be focusing on.
The cosmic player Uranus, the planetary Bringer of Light (higher consciousness), is again shaking up humans to open their hearts and minds to enable spiritual and psychological evolutionary change. Many have chosen to take the initiative to break-through psychological density to ensure their vibrations are higher and love-based. Our planet needs this love vibration.
Uranus is the planetary ruler of Aquarius. The themes of these two energies are similar. Sudden and unexpected changes, chaos and shock are being experienced. The shocks we experience can feel like internal earthquakes. When internal earthquakes are experienced by individuals and the collective, our external world mirrors them. Our planet is likely to experience more of them.
Our societal order is in chaos. Through it, disruption, rebellion and break-throughs occur. Before any break-through, a break-down usually occurs. Tensions between the two cosmic players began in mid-April, accelerating on June15th with the first exact challenge to each other. Uranus requires freedom from societal structures. Saturn holds on to the existing status quo. Uranus is about breaking free, often of societal and governmental structures that no longer serve the greater good of humanity.
Previously, I’ve given the analogy of Saturn being a solid brick wall and Uranus the electrical drill that intends to break through the brick wall to allow light to enter. This analogy is applicable for individual consciousness, as well as for the collective consciousness.
Because these two cosmic players are again closely challenging each other, further global disruptions are likely to occur. What form will this take this time? Whatever they are, they’re likely to be sudden and unexpected. Think of earthquakes. Think also of volcanic eruptions. What happens when humans become angry and frustrated? Explosion! Eruption – often volcanic in nature! As within, so without!
Last week I wrote of my Saturn in Aquarius experience during my early childhood. Also at that time Uranus was also in Taurus and the two were challenging each other as they are now. I wrote a short paragraph on my experience of the effects of the second World War. As I see it, a different type of war has emerged, one between the forces of light and those of the dark. Again, a virus is part of the agenda.
Eighty-four years is the cycle of time it takes for a complete transit of Uranus through each of the signs of the zodiac. It takes seven years to move through one sign. The last time Uranus entered Taurus was on 29 March 1935. I was born with Uranus in Taurus at 12 degrees, where it has been hovering all this year. The upcoming exact sq is 11.04 degrees of Taurus. In astrological terminology, I am experiencing a Uranus return to my natal Uranus. There are not many astrologers alive who can write about it! Change has been a constant in my life and I can feel another coming on. Many young children under the age of seven, know of the times and the shift we are experiencing. One of them said to her mother recently ‘We chose to be here right now for this mum, we can do this, it will pass’.
Resistance to change doesn’t work! Our Higher Self knows the cosmic system and works with it. When we listen to, and feel into, our internal guidance we experience ease, grace and joy in life. When we know that, as souls, we’ve chosen to come to this earth plane to learn about ourselves through experience, we can relax into the excitement of the journey.
Scorpio is the opposing sign to Taurus. Amongst many positive attributes, Scorpio is about the conscious or unconscious use and abuse of power, manipulation, and covert control, usually through money or sex. Scorpio likes privacy, and can have many secrets. This is the case for individuals and the collective. Reflect on the above transmissions to make connections.
As a child, I remember observing a successful promotional agenda by governments and corporations to conscript young boys to go to war. I felt sick in my stomach when I saw the huge posters plastered onto most of the lamp posts around the city and in my neighbourhood. Many school boys I knew lied about their age so they could fight in the war. Most didn’t come home. Women had to learn to manage without their sons and husbands. Separation from love (Uranus/Aquarius theme) arose in the hearts of millions around the planet. The collective grief was huge. Having to be resourceful (Taurus) we managed.
Again, 84 years later, the cosmic player, Uranus, the planetary force of light, is shaking up humans from complacency to bring about evolutionary change. Is another war is going on? One that is manipulative, secretive and covert? It’s for our highest good and the greater good of the planet that we wake-up to it. Where there is light, there is always dark.
An opportunity for a global healing is taking place although it may appear as if the world is being rent asunder. Only in the shattering (Uranus/Aquarius) can a rebuilding (Taurus) take place.
Bear in mind that the creation of a new and highly conscious love-based civilisation is the Uranus agenda. Uranus is the planetary ruler of the Aquarian Age. Many old societal structures will have to change because they are way past their use by date. A major shift of perception is needed, and the frequency of love from inside each of us is essential to achieve this shift. It’s important to realise we are creators, not victims.
Being guided to refer to my Sabian Symbol book, I checked out the Aquarian degree affected by this challenging cosmic aspect. The image is: “On a vast staircase stand people of different types, graduated upward”. This is a symbol of “ascent” referring to the natural progression of human states of consciousness.
“Keynote: The necessity of recognising differences of types and levels of development wherever human beings live and work together”.
To me, this means that this current cosmic event provides the opening of a cosmic light portal providing an opportunity for evolving human minds to ascend to a higher level of consciousness. This evolutionary process requires all life to be valued and honoured; the attainment of internal harmony and balance between the yin and the yang, the light and the dark, the black and the white with all being seen in divine perfection. And, to always know that Spirit speaks through you, to you, with you and for you. To ascend into a higher frequency of light, it is most important to vibrate with love, and to relax into living.
