Saturn Enters Aquarius , The Spring Equinox and This Week’s Astrology

“I like dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Thomas Jefferson

“I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan’t be gone long.—You come too.
I’m going out to fetch the little calf
That’s standing by the mother. It’s so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I shan’t be gone long.—You come too.” Robert Frost


Saturn will end his foray through the sign of Capricorn Saturday 3/21 when this stern teacher enters the sign of Aquarius. Saturn is the planet which rules the structures of our world – the institutions, the government, the laws, the roads, bridges and tunnels that form our infrastructure. And wherever Saturn is transiting it exposes weaknesses or vulnerabilities.

Saturn’s move into the sign of Aquarius, the sign of innovation and futuristic thinking, will help us envision the ways that things need to be restructured or redesigned to build a stronger foundation for the future.  Cooperation and collaboration will go a long way in achieving goals.

Saturn will transit this sign for roughly two and a half years –  retrograding back into Capricorn from late May – late Sept.  During the retrograde time, it will bode well to revisit work and family commitments, long terms goals and the means and methods we employ to manifest our aspirations.

Venus has been conjunct Uranus recently and has been associated with a shake up or disruption around issues of security and stability. We are living in times of great change when an old way is dying and a new way is being born. It can present a good time to slow down and think about what provides a real sense of  abundance and security in your life – good health for example –  and how to move more in that direction if necessary.

Neptune’s transit through Pisces through 2026 is associated with confusion, illusion and misinformation. But it also is a reminder of the power of the mind and imagination-  as Buckminster Fuller wrote,”To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A white triangle is seen; it has wings.”
