What a time we are living in at the moment. A time that will undoubtedly go down in history as a turning point. Astrologically this is also what the planetary alignments appear to be pointing us towards. The planet Saturn is heading towards the end of its cycle in the sign of Capricorn and will enter Aquarius in a few days time. Specifically on March 22nd before it will retrograde back into Capricorn for its final run from July 2nd 2020 until December 16th 2020. So what does this all mean? Simply put, an ending is coming. An end to how we have lived life on Earth for thousands of years. Expect a new normal to be birthed where there will be shifts in society and the way we live on a daily basis. And these changes can be linked to Saturn in Aquarius.
Saturn is the planet linked to the element of earth. It relates to the structures/boundaries/limits we have to abide by on Earth. Gravity is one rule we can’t defy. Try jumping off a cliff, the only way is down! The gravitational pull of Earth will make sure of that!! Aquarius is one of the signs related to air, it rules freedom from conventional thinking, spontaneity and being detached. Generally doing things differently from the expected societal norms. We are in the midst of change, changes in the lifestyle we have been accustomed to living.
Saturn in Aquarius will be pointing us towards new innovative ways to live and work in society. The old structures are being broken down so new structures can be built. The biggest change we are already experiencing, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is that people are being ‘forced’ to work from home, to rely on technology to do their jobs and to basically become more self-sufficient with their time. This is Saturn in Aquarius. We can even say that this could be the birthing of the Aquarian Age which has been talked about for quite some time in the world of Astrology.
Though it’s very likely we will be dealing with the current situation until the summer months, ‘normality’ for people will be changing. The planetary energies at the moment point to this change, especially with the South Nodes (past history) of Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto all in Capricorn being activated by the stellium of planets in Capricorn right now. Collectively, we are being asked to review the way we live, to let go of old thinking patterns and ways of working.
So what can we do in this current climate? With the planet of spirituality and oneness, Neptune in its home sign of Pisces, we are being called to collectively surrender. To surrender to what we cannot control. This includes being told to commit to social distancing, working from home, self-isolating as much as possible to help the medical professionals to be able to navigate through this time. We need to learn to help one another, where we don’t fall into the fear of running out of resources etc. If there was ever a time where we need to unite as Human Beings, it’s now.
