In astrology, the second house of the zodiac is the house of self. It represents your beliefs, your values, your vision, your house, and your relationships. For many people, it is the location of the home, the planets that represent their parents, and their childhood homes. It also can represent the home of your soul and your spiritual home.
Saturn and Uranus have been known as two of the most powerful planets in all the astrological universe, and when this happens, the effects can be just as powerful as when they are in conjunction. In the case of Saturn Square Uranus, if this happens, it can be a very challenging time for people – especially those who are on the right-hand path.
Saturn Aquarius square Uranus Taurus – 14. June 2021 (23:01 GMT+1) This week is the second of three major planetary aspects involving Aquarius’ two rulers, Saturn and Uranus. These two important planets are diametrically opposed – Saturn represents tradition, governments, what is already fixed, and reliance on the past. Uranus represents rebellion and change, protest and freedom, and is future-oriented. It’s a classic case of the old versus the new.
Collisions between Saturn and Uranus often occur during times of great social reform. Here are the dates and degrees of the three squares of Saturn and Uranus – if you have planets/angles within 2 degrees of any of the four fixed star signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius – you will feel this tension and conflict between opposing forces. For all, it is interesting to note in which houses of the horoscope these two mighty giants can be found (see the list below).
- Saturn 7 Aquarius square Uranus 7 Taurus – 17th house. February 2021
- Saturn 13 Aquarius square Uranus 13 Taurus – 14. June 2021
- Saturn 11 Aquarius square Uranus 11 Taurus – 24. December 2021
It should be noted that this collision is not limited to the year 2021. These two planets were in the sky from 22. March 2020 to 15. June 2020 met in the same signs of the zodiac, and we know what happened then. They will remain squared for most of 2022, even if they are not perfectly squared.
Aspects of square
The aspects of the square create dynamic tensions, and the ruling planet determines how this manifests in your life. When Saturn is stronger, there is a fear of change and rules must be followed. When Uranus is strongest, there is a desire to rebel, to break the rules and challenge the status quo. At the very least, both ends of the spectrum should be considered. Ideally, you should find a way to combine the two. However, this is not easy.
Saturn in Aquarius does not want to be part of the group, but tells you how to live your life. Uranus in Taurus is an advocate of change, but refuses to do what is best for the whole. You see the dilemma. Change is rarely easy when it means giving up the life you are used to. Change becomes even more difficult when different factions in society have opposing views. Don’t block it? Vaccinations? No vaccinations?
How it works
Saturn in Aquarius coincided with many restrictions on what society can and cannot do. The people at the top tell the rest of society what to do. One rule for them, another for the rest of us. We often think of Aquarius as the sign of the freedom-loving hippie, the eccentric, the New Age and concern for the common good. But being a fixed air sign, Aquarius is naturally dogmatic, especially when it comes to opinions and beliefs – I’m right, you’re wrong.
This is why the square from Saturn to Uranus is both exciting and contradictory. Uranus is the co-ruler of Aquarius, so you could say that Saturn in Aquarius is the guardian of rules, the scientist, the grinder of technology, the side of Aquarius that likes order and systems. While Uranus is the rebel, the non-conformist, the obstacle to running in circles, the libertine, the antagonist.
This square aspect on a collective level relates to the broader changes in our society that are taking place amidst two epic Saturn/Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn on the 12th. January 2020 and Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius on December 21. 2020, took place. Astrologers have explained that the Saturn-Pluto conjunction represents a major reset, and this has become clear over the past 18 months.
Saturn wants to conform and follow the rules; Uranus breaks the rules and is rebellious. You immediately see the clash between different sides of society and the rapid changes taking place around technology and data, money and cryptocurrencies.
The passage of Uranus through the sign of Taurus in 2018 has already revolutionized the world of money. We are becoming a cashless society, and Uranus in Taurus wants everything to be digital. Digital art and fashion are booming during Uranus’ move into Taurus – Taurus rules money, art, fashion, food and drink. When Uranus leaves Taurus in 2026, expect futuristic new developments in food and other important areas.
Both high and low
Or maybe things are moving too fast and we need to keep a close eye on this collision. Not all modern advances and developments are good, especially when we lose sight of another kind of truth and knowledge that our ancestors valued. In astrology, the expression up and down refers to the overall picture of the universe and how what happens in planetary patterns is reflected in life on earth. We can learn from what we see, hear, feel and intuit about life outside and our connection to the earth on which we live.
On the personal level
On a personal level, think about the areas of your life where you experience procrastination, reluctance or frustration. Wherever you follow the rules – all Saturn themes. Then look at how you feel, what you are willing to risk, how and where you can break through or break free – these are all Uranus related themes. You may also encounter the Saturn or Uranus archetype in another person, and conflict will arise. At the very least, use this powerful astrology to scrutinize your opinions and positions, and think about where you stand or what you stand for, and whether it needs adjustment. Here’s a quick guide: read your sun sign and ascendant.
- Aries – friends/group vs. money/own value
- Taurus – Career/Reputation vs. Personal Goals/Identity
- Gemini – Freedom/Education vs. Inner Transformation
- Cancer – Shared finances/taboo vs. friends/group
- Leo – Relationships/Contracts vs. Career/Reputation
- Virgo – Work/Health vs. Freedom/Training
- Balance – creativity/children vs. shared finances/taboo
- Scorpio – Home/Family vs. Relationships/Contracts
- Sagittarius – Communication/Community vs. Work/Health
- Capricorn – Money/Values vs. Creativity/Children
- Aquarius – Personal goals/identity versus home/family
- Pisces – Inner transformation vs. Communication/Community
This planetary aspect is a very important symbol for our worldview in 2021 and beyond. When I read the words of the brilliant astrologer Charles Carter about this couple, I could not forget them: democratic in spirit, autocratic in method. Therein lies the danger/problem of this powerful planetary combination. The message Saturn squares Uranus: The post Clash of the Titans appeared first on astrologer Sally Kirkman.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does Uranus square Saturn mean?
Hey everyone, this is Robin taking over for Cara. I’ll be writing a new blog today (between the two of us, there are too many new posts to write in a week). I’ve never done a blog post on this site before, but I’ve been reading your posts and it’s been a lot of fun. I’ve been reading about Saturn and Uranus lately on the weekend, and I saw that they were squaring each other today. So, I thought I’d write about this to see what you guys would know about. On April 24, 2014, Saturn became stationary retrograde in Sagittarius, trine Uranus, and square to Jupiter in the sign of Libra.
Saturn is the planet of discipline and rules, the ruler of our sign. Uranus is the planet of the imagination, the planet of freedom, and the planet of communication. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and expansionism, the planet of the mind. It is fitting that Saturn’s stationary retrograde, in the sign of Sagittarius the Archer, occurs in the sign that is ruled by the planet of expansion and expansionism, and also on the day that Saturn is square to Uranus, the planet of freedom and imagination. This is a clash of the titans. ~~
How will the Saturn-Uranus square affect me?
In the outer planets, Saturn and Uranus have very different personalities. Saturn is the Lord of Discipline, with a devotion to structure and order. Uranus, on the other hand, is the Lord of Freedom, with a free spirit, a willingness to challenge convention, and a sense of humor. These two energies will meet in the same sign this year and create a whole new dynamic. Saturn and Uranus are two of the most powerful planets in the Solar System; their gravitational pull can shift entire global systems of planetary bodies, with dire consequences for those who haven’t taken note.
What does Sun square Uranus mean?
There is no doubt that the Sun, the ruler of our solar system, is the most powerful force in our lives. However, sometimes we need to be reminded that the Sun is not the centre of our universe, as some astrologers have long claimed. (Note: This was written by a friend, whom I trust with my life. I have no idea if it’s true, of course, but it seems legit to me. And yes, I think some people will get the joke.
I’ll update this post if I get any feedback.) As the two planets square each other now, we feel like a giant pair of cosmic boulders rolling into the city. In other words, things are about to get rocky out there. There is a good chance that anything we do this week will end up being a bust. This is not a time to head out on a date or start a new project; it is time to call this week’s plans off. We may find that our plans are breaking down in a big way, or that we are running smack into a major obstacle.
