Saturn goes direct 2021

SaturnSaturn slows to a halt on Mon 11 Oct following its recent retrograde period, ready to go direct again at 6 degrees Aquarius.

If your birthday is close to 26 Jan (hello Australia!) or this degree is significant in your chart, you will have been feeling the heavy energy of Saturn sitting on this point for the previous couple of weeks, with a further two weeks to look forward to (!).

The energy of Saturn asks us to re-evaluate the area of life it is currently contacting, to take full responsibility for ourselves and our actions, and to cut away any dead wood – which ultimately stimulates new growth.

It is also very good at demanding that we do a reality check.

The forward motion of Saturn enables us to test and put into practice over the next seven months whatever we have learned about social responsibility, self-discipline and material reality during its recent retrograde phase.

Dredging up the dirt – Pluto stations to go direct

pluto symbol

When Pluto stations, a lot of “dirt” – buried secrets – is brought to the surface, and this Pluto station (maybe because it’s also been squaring Mercury) is being particularly active in this regard.  We’ve had the release of the Pandora Papers, the Facebook whistleblower testifying (and Lo & Behold, Facebook went offline exactly at that time!), exposées of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in France, and of the WHO workers who sexually abused women and girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  There’s a lot of muck getting raked up.

 

Pluto goes direct on 7 Oct, having been pretty much stationary for the past month.  This is a time now when deeply-buried issues may finally rise to the surface, particularly if you’ve become more aware of them bubbling away in the last six months.  In fact they’re most likely to rise to the surface at this month’s Full Moon in Aries, see below.

Plutonian issues usually concern disempowerment, powerlessness and trauma, where the issues run deep.  Plutonian issues can also manifest as misuses or even abuses of power, it’s all to do with Pluto!  This time is well-suited to deep inner work, shifting these deep-seated issues so that you can at last move forward.  The key to moving through this is to become as aware as possible of our feelings and reactions, becoming conscious of how, on the one hand, we may give away our power, and on the other, how we may manipulate others to get our own way.   It can be really subtle, so to paraphrase Socrates, know thyself – and stay in the light!

If you have chart points at 24 degrees of Capricorn (or any of the other cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra) including birthdays around 14-15 Jan, you’ll be picking up on this intense transformational energy at a very personal level – in fact it’s been going on for the last year or two.  The good news is that it is finally easing for you as Pluto moves forwards and leaves this degree behind.  Hopefully you have faced the demons and can now step fully into your power.

Uranus goes retro

UranusUranus goes retro

 

Uranus goes retrograde on Fri 20 Aug 2021 at 14 degrees Taurus.  This gives you the opportunity to review your life from a perspective of increased awareness, especially any innovation you may have introduced in the last 7 months.

 

The house that Uranus is currently transiting (taking about 7 years on average to travel through a house) will be the area of your life currently under this kind of review.

 

If your birthday is close to 5 May, you could be experiencing the negative side of Uranus which is destabilization and chaos – transform this by recognising an opportunity to bring more awareness into your life and be more authentically yourself, a classic time for re-inventing yourself.

 

If you were born around 5 May, or have 14 degrees Taurus strong in your chart, this Uranus standstill is likely to affect you deeply – a time to reflect on your own truth and integrity, and a great cosmic opportunity to reinvent yourself.  It’s also a time to awaken to something in your life, you’ll know best what that is.  The Universe is saying that you need to bring more awareness to this aspect of your life and make significant changes there – otherwise the Universe has a way of forcing these changes upon you!

 

Uranus is retrograde for 5 months until 19 Jan 2022 when it goes direct at 10 Taurus.

Neptune goes retro 2021

NeptuneNeptune slows to a standstill ready to turn retrograde on 26 June 2021 at 23 degrees Pisces, softening boundaries and looking for solutions that are all-inclusive, reminding us that we all belong to one humanity.

For the next five months, we have the opportunity to revisit the dreams and visions of the past seven months, and to integrate the inspirational and visionary energy of Neptune more fully into our lives.

At the other end of the Neptunian spectrum, we also have the opportunity to review the ways in which illusion, self-deception and escapism (possibly even addictive patterns of behaviour) play out in our lives, and to turn this around so we can connect more fully with the spiritual longing of Neptune.

Neptune is retrograde until 1 Dec 2021, when it goes direct again at 20 degrees Pisces.

Saturn goes retro 2021

SaturnSaturn turns retro on Sun 23 May at 13 degrees Aquarius.

Saturn retrograde encourages us to review the recent past and assess our ability to take full responsibility for our actions.  It also urges us to re-examine the way we have structured our lives.

This is a good time to look at the ways we limit ourselves, and bring our fears to the conscious light of day.  This is also a good time to review our ability to say ’No’ and ensure that we can maintain healthy boundaries in all areas of our lives.

If your birthday falls around 2 Feb, this is likely to be a time of increased responsibility for you, as you enter a new phase of maturity and step into a place of personal authority.  Your workload may increase at this time, and if you accept this extra responsibility, this can be a successful time for you.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn is a planet where we truly reap what we sow: if you’ve put in the hard work, this is likely to be a time of achievement.  However, if you’ve cut corners along the way, this is a time when you can come unstuck and this can lead to feelings of failure.

The Saturn retrograde period lasts until 11 Oct 2021 when Saturn will turn direct again at 6 degrees Aquarius.

Pluto turns retro as we re-examine abuses of power

Pluto turns retro as we re-examine abuses of power

 

pluto symbol

Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld in classical mythology, is about to change direction and turn retrograde, retracing his steps of the last 6 months.

In Astrology Pluto is associated with power, and with abuses of power.  In his positive form he represents empowerment, standing comfortably in our power, knowing ourselves well enough that we can trust ourselves not to abuse that power. In his negative form (and all planets have both positive and negative expressions of their energy) Pluto represents misuse or even abuse of power.

Just a couple of days ago, the verdict was handed down in the trial of the US police officer responsible for the death of George Floyd, finding him guilty on all 3 counts of causing George Floyd’s death.  If the verdict had gone the other way, there would have been riots.  This really shows that people in the US have finally had enough of the kind of behaviour that amounts to  extraordinary abuse of power that the police have been getting away with for too long.  In Astrology we’re talking Pluto – power and abuse of power.

Right now Pluto is slowing down – he’s basically at a standstill, ready to change direction and turn retrograde on Wed 28 April.  I think this really reflects the change of direction that’s happening (and hopefully will continue to happen) in the US and elsewhere.  It’s the whole BLM movement.  Here in Australia the figures for Aboriginal deaths in custody are appalling, and something definitely needs to shift here too.

At a personal level, as Pluto slows to a halt ready to begin his retrograde journey, if anything in your life has been going through symbolic death throes in the last six months, this retrograde period is a time when you are likely to revisit the whole process, perhaps at an even deeper level as you search for the hidden truths and the soul essence of who you are, the alchemist’s gold that can eventually emerge from the blackness.

Pluto is stationary at 26 degrees of Capricorn. Anyone whose birthday falls around 16-17 Jan is likely to be experiencing a very intense time while personal transformation goes on at a deep core level.  The eventual outcome is empowerment, the ability to stand comfortably in your own power, but it’s a long drawn-out process which won’t be complete until the end of 2022.  This will also be true for anyone with personal planets at this degree, or at 26 degrees of the other cardinal signs: Aries, Libra and Cancer.

Pluto will retrograde back to 24 degrees Capricorn before turning direct again on 7 Oct 2021.

Expect the Unexpected! Uranus goes direct

Uranus - Iceland Storm

 

Uranus goes direct on Thurs 14 Jan, the day after the New Moon, at 6 degrees Taurus..

Uranus is the Great Awakener, shaking up any sense we have of security or permanence (and how!).

Uranus takes us into unexplored territory, and as it turns direct again for the next 7 months, that’s where we’re heading.

Uranus brings new insights and a higher level of awareness, as well as changes, yet it can be very disruptive – the changes are often unexpected, shaking things to their very foundation, sometimes even bringing down the whole structure in the urge to bring about revolutionary change.

In the words of Leonard Cohen “there is a crack, a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”.

The more conscious we can be, and the more open we are to the changes that the Universe is demanding of us, the less disruptive this energy is likely to be.

Saturn and Pluto station turning direct

Saturn and Pluto station to turn direct

Saturn and Pluto are now stationing ready to turn direct just a few days apart – Saturn on Tues 29 Sept and Pluto on Sun 4 Oct.  They’re moving so slowly right now though that effectively this is one huge and very heavy energy we’re dealing with, covering the degrees from 22-25 Capricorn.   Those of you with birthdays around 13-15 Jan will really be feeling this at a deep personal level.  See the detailed breakdown below.

Then on top of that, these degrees are getting challenged by Mars retro over the next ten days or so, as it squares these heavy duty planets, adding to the tension and frustration.

Saturn slows to a halt on Tues 29 Sept 2020 following its recent retrograde period, ready to go direct again at 25 degrees Capricorn
If your birthday is close to 15 Jan
or this degree is significant in your chart, you will have been feeling the heavy energy of Saturn sitting on this point for the previous 3 weeks, with a further three weeks to look forward to (!).  The energy of Saturn asks us to re-evaluate the area of life it is currently contacting, to take full responsibility for ourselves and our actions, and to cut away any dead wood – which ultimately stimulates new growth.  It is also very good at demanding that we do a reality check.  The forward motion of Saturn enables us to test and put into practice over the next seven months whatever we have learned about social responsibility, self-discipline and material reality during its recent retrograde phase.

Pluto goes direct on Sun 4 Oct 2020, and is pretty much stationary for the second half of Sept and first half of Oct. This is a time when deeply-buried issues may finally rise to the surface, particularly if you’ve become more aware of them bubbling away in the last six months.
Plutonian issues usually concern disempowerment, powerlessness and trauma, where the issues run deep – just think of the Black Lives Matter movement.  Plutonian issues manifest in the perpetrators as misuses or even abuses of power.  This time is well-suited to deep inner work, shifting these deep-seated issues so that you can at last move forward.  The key to moving through this is to become as aware as possible of your feelings and reactions, becoming conscious of how, on the one hand, you may give away your power, and on the other, how you may manipulate others to get your own way.  It can be really subtle, so to paraphrase Socrates, know thyself – and stay in the light!
If you have chart points at 22 degrees of Capricorn (or any of the other cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra) including birthdays around 13 Jan, you will be picking up on this intense transformational energy at a very personal level – in fact it’s been going on for the last couple of years.  The good news is that it is finally easing for you as Pluto moves forwards and leaves this degree behind.  Hopefully you have faced the demons, defeated or transformed them, and can now step fully into your power.

Uranus goes retro

Uranus goes retrograde on Sun 16 Aug 2020 (just after midnight AEST, effectively Sat night) at 10 Taurus.  This gives you the opportunity to review your life from a perspective of increased awareness, especially any innovation you may have introduced in the last 7 months. The house that Uranus is currently transiting (taking about 7 years on average to travel through a house) will be the area of your life currently under this kind of review.

If your birthday is close to 30 April, you could be experiencing the negative side of Uranus which is destabilization and chaos – transform this by recognising an opportunity to bring more awareness into your life and be more authentically yourself, a classic time for re-inventing yourself.  Uranus is retrograde for 5 months until 14 Jan 2021 when it goes direct again at 6 Taurus.

If you are born around 30 April, or have 10 degrees Taurus strong in your chart, this Uranus standstill is likely to affect you deeply – a time to reflect on your own truth and integrity, and a great cosmic opportunity to reinvent yourself.  It’s also a time to wake up to something in your life, you’ll know best what that is.  The Universe is saying that you need to bring more awareness to this aspect of your life and make significant changes there – otherwise the Universe has a way of forcing these changes upon you!

Jupiter goes retrograde 2020

Jupiter canstockphoto

Jupiter goes retro on Fri 15 May AEST (the previous day in Europe and the Americas) at 27 degrees Capricorn.  Jupiter influences social, moral and ethical issues, and Jupiter retrograde periods often bring changes in the law around matters associated with the sign Jupiter is in.  Here in Capricorn, Jupiter is asking us to re-examine the ethics and morality of Capricorn themes such as the establishment, the finance and banking industry, and multinational corporations.  We can expect to see changes to existing laws in these areas during this Jupiter retro period.

In broader terms, the Jupiter retro period is a time when reviews of injustice and other legal matters are likely to take place.

At a personal level, there can be a sense of restraint and apparent lack of progress – hope and optimism might be harder to come by.  Trust issues are likely to resurface, coming up for another opportunity for healing and transformation.  You may find yourself questioning your beliefs or dealing with issues of faith in the next four months.

Remember too that this Jupiter-Pluto period (throughout 2020) is about transformation of our belief structures, so if you feel your old belief systems starting to wobble or collapse, focus on what (in a positive sense) you want to bring through in the new reality we’re starting to create now.  These are times of huge upheaval and change, and we’re all affected.  Jupiter is retro until 13 Sept 2020 when it goes direct once more at 17 degrees Capricorn.
