We experience the third and final closing square aspect between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus tonight (exact at 1:17 a.m. Central on December 24). The first two exact Saturn-Uranus squares occurred on February 17 and June 14, 2021. This prolonged square aspect, strongly in effect throughout 2021, has indicated a year of instability and uncertainty with near-constant structural change. This has meant we've had to stretch our personal adaptation skills to extreme and uncomfortable points at times throughout this year.
I've written about the themes of respectful (Saturn) rebellion (Uranus) associated with Taskmaster Saturn square Cosmic Agitator Uranus, and I'm including a previous article on the subject (lightly updated) to draw attention to these themes as the third and final Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact tonight. Vigilance on these points will be required long after this square is out of orb.
From May 21, 2021:
In general terms, the transit of Saturn in Aquarius (March 21, 2020 to March 7, 2023) indicates a challenge laid at our feet to build, establish, and reinforce (Saturn) the type of future and the type of communities (Aquarius) we wish to live within.
Do we wish to live in a human-centred world where we work to meet the real needs of the people, or do we wish to live in an artificial, technology-dominated world where human beings are a commodity to be controlled, data-mined, and exploited? Do we wish to live a natural life, a life as part of nature, or do we wish to live an artificial life of virtual reality? The influence of technology, particularly top-down control (Saturn) through technology (Aquarius), is a major theme for the Saturn in Aquarius transit.
[With Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus throughout 2021], we're locked into a period of acute structural change. Many
things are changing on many fronts, and people could be sort of losing
it under this extremely uncertain and hard-to-pin-down energy. The word
"unhinged" comes to mind. Things flying loose. Extreme adaptations to
changing conditions. Anxieties or dread nipping at us from multiple
angles. Difficulty staying grounded or feeling safe in the material
We're required to put extra effort into stability, reliability, normalcy, routine, and personal traditions in order to come through this year in good standing, without being emotionally shredded or left in a shambles by the often-harsh energies.
Both our emotional and physical anchors must be tended, reinforced, and protected throughout the year and particularly around the times when the Saturn-Uranus square is at its tightest.
