2021 is bringing in some exceptional energy that is geared towards breaking down what doesn’t work in order to build structures and systems that not only work but benefit everyone collectively. One of the defining energies of this year will be the Saturn Square Uranus which will be felt throughout 2021 and more exactly on specific dates. With Saturn currently transiting the freedom-loving, liberating sign of Aquarius while Uranus is currently transiting the more stable, status quo sign of Taurus, we can expect to see some major shifts involving our permanent structures and the desire to release that which is no longer advancing humanity. Because of the tense energy represented by the square, there will be some uncomfortable moments as we move throughout 2021. We will be required to hold ourselves accountable individually as well as collectively for the systems and structures that we’ve set up by asking ourselves what truly works and what doesn’t so that we can take the steps to move beyond the rut and liberate ourselves so that we can advance forward on our paths.
The Saturn Square Uranus Transit is rare, and because of its rarity, there is a unique opportunity to face that which we have tried to avoid up to now so that we can live a life that is authentic and beneficial for ourselves and mankind.
General Overview of Saturn Square Uranus
On the other side, there is Uranus which is oriented towards evolutionary leaps and bounds that take us beyond where we currently are. Uranus is looking towards the stars, and it often feels itself to be a weird outsider that is often deeply misunderstood due to its progressive ways. Uranus seeks to free itself from anything that holds it back from its forward movement. Uranus energy is willing to knock down the status quo in order to achieve the advancements that will create progress both personally and for the collective.
In understanding the energy of both Saturn and Uranus, it is clear to see that there is an obvious conflict of interest. Saturn in Aquarius will make us responsible for not only ourselves but also our positions within the collective experience. If we say that we are freedom-loving and we want equality for everyone, are really offering this? If we say that we want progress for mankind as well as for ourselves, are we really taking action and putting down the footwork in order to achieve this? Saturn wants solid plans and with the combination of Aquarian energy, accountability in relation to Aquarian themes is highlighted. As a matter of fact, many of us are already experiencing this energy on a global scale due to the issues related to the pandemic. Is everyone really being cared for? Is everyone receiving the same treatments? Are we looking out for the greater good of all? These are just some of the lessons related to Saturn in Aquarius.
The Saturn in Aquarius energy will be squaring Uranus in Taurus. It is no coincidence that the ruler of Aquarius, which is Uranus, is currently transiting Taurus which is one of the most stable, status quo signs in the zodiac. Typically speaking, Taurus and Aquarius energy are usually at odds. Taurus is interested in building on what it has previously built and maintaining it while Aquarius is willing to risk it all for higher understanding and progressiveness. Herein lies one of the major issues that will be coming up throughout 2021. With Saturn in Aquarius, it has become very clear that there are issues we need to address both individually and collectively in order to move forward.
However, the tense energy between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus is marked by a deep-rooted (Taurus) desire to keep things the same even though it is clear that things are not working. In general, the Uranus transit through Taurus is not expected to be an easy one because Taurus is a sign that is fixed and likes to have its way. Likewise, Aquarian energy is also fixed and set on making progressive shifts oftentimes out of the blue.
Thus, with this tense energy, there will be major shake-ups involving our long-held existing structures, systems, and even value systems as Taurus rules our personal values. Adjustments will be necessary to move forward. Many of these shake-ups are necessary to help us move beyond experiences that no longer serve us individually as well as collectively. Taurus energy is clinging for dear life to people, places, things as well as structures that are no longer working, and Aquarius’ lightning bolt from the planet Uranus is here to “bolt” us out of the tried and true Taurean rut.

The theme of Aquarius energy has been with us since many major planets moved into the sign of Aquarius at the end of 2020. With the Saturn Square Uranus currently in effect, we will continue to see changes in both our personal lives as well as collectively for humanity. Personally, the houses ruled by Aquarius and Taurus in the natal chart provide details on how we will experience Saturn Square Taurus intimately Collectively, we can expect many of our long-held values and structures to be significantly adjusted in order for Aquarian energy to take root. There has been much talk about the dawning of the New Age of Aquarius. This shift will require some major permanent adjustments as the energy of Aquarius and Taurus are fixed, so any adjustments will be solid and permanent. The current systems apparently are not working for many. It appears that in order for humanity to reach new heights the implementation of substantial changes both personally and collectively is an uncomfortable reality.
Square energy is often feared because of the uneasy, tense feelings that it creates. One of the major lessons of the Saturn in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus transit is working through difficulties in order to effect widespread change that could ultimately benefit humanity. We are at a very important precipice in our collective and individual experiences, and many of the changes that are desired are possible. However, the tense energy between Saturn and Uranus lets us know that it would be naive of us to think that these changes can happen without some major adjustments. Ultimately, sometimes major adjustments don’t always make us feel the best, but they are necessary nevertheless.
Ultimately, the Saturn in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus energy creates the uncomfortable feelings associated with remaining the same despite the call for progression. It is with much hope that we all can do our best to embrace this energy in the most beneficial way so we can advance forward personally and collectively by releasing those existing structures and values that are no longer beneficial for us.
