Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
The Saturn/Uranus challenge unfolds on several levels simultaneously, but don’t let that confuse you. The underlying theme of this interaction is becoming aware of how your values align with the values of your community. If they don’t, and you want them to, you might find yourself making significant adjustments. If they do, you might find yourself feeling the comfort of genuine associations.
Taurus April 20-May 20
The Saturn/Uranus square sets up friction between your traditional definition of success and your aspiration to shift your persona. Sometimes breaking free from previous roles and responsibilities can set off major and minor earthquakes. But just as often the need to break free from stagnant patterns is immensely satisfying. Weigh the balance and see what matters most to you.
Gemini May 21-June 21
It’s a tale of two (or more) universes as you work your way through colliding belief systems. Saturn represents all the systems you have faith in and Uranus signifies a challenge to those tried and true beliefs. As these two Titans square off, you’re likely to be questioning almost everything. Take your time with this process and you’ll eventually work your way toward greater clarity.
Cancer June 22-July 22
You need to pace yourself, and while I realize that is a strange thing to say during a retrograde, the Saturn/Uranus square is sparking shifts—lots of them—and you are going to want to do everything right away. So take a deep breath, prioritize your goals, and make a reasonable plan. The cliché “Rome wasn’t built in a day” applies here; true transformation takes time to integrate into action.
Leo July 23-August 22
It’s all about relationships with significant others—spouses, lovers, friends, and business partners—and also with yourself. Saturn has you analyzing your partnerships and it simultaneously triggers your loyalty issues (you tend to be loyal to a fault). Uranus wants to dissolve inappropriate responsibilities so that you can take care of yourself as well as you take care of others.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Read Gemini above and add this: your colliding universes revolve around your definition of service. Ask the big questions and try not to be afraid of your doubts. Doubt comes from real questions and answering those concerns is the best way to strengthen your faith. So have at it, and start with what it means to serve and whether you do it out of duty or from a genuine desire to help?
Libra September 23-October 22
Saturn is currently transiting the sector of your Solar Chart where we take risks. It’s commonly thought of as the house of self-expression, and if you think about it, being yourself—all the time—is a big risk that Saturn often inhibits. We admire those who do, but not many make the leap. Uranus, transiting your house of change, stirs the need to be all you, all the time.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Saturn wants stability even as it clashes with Uranus, which is agitating your need to enliven your relationships, including and especially your relationship with yourself. At first the solution appears to be making bold moves to remedy the immediate problem. But this is Uranus, and part of this process is looking at these issues from a variety of perspectives. Be patient and clarity will prevail.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
You always have a lot to say and as Saturn and Uranus square off, you are going to have even more opinions about all sorts of subjects. Be wary of wagging a judgmental figure at others for not agreeing with you. This is an opportunity for you to expand your ideas and also to sort through what’s true for you and what isn’t. As always, remember to listen to others as intensely as they listen to you.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
The Saturn/Uranus square presents itself at first as a money issue—and it may actually be all about money. At a deeper level, the friction this square generates is about value, which means you are going to be questioning what matters most. While this process could be quite uncomfortable, it will be worthwhile, especially if you’re willing to be absolutely honest with yourself.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
You’re already feeling as if you are in the midst of an identity crisis and the Saturn/Uranus square adds a new level of intensity. Take a breath and take a step back. Part of this process involves dismantling your public persona and that has you a little nervous. Don’t worry; your job is just to be authentic and the rest will take care of itself.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Your internal universe is struggling from the weight of Saturn, which is inviting you to consider a variety of ideas, so many that you’re feeling overwhelmed. Uranus is stirring the desire to talk about it all but you’re not sure where to begin. Anywhere would be the answer to that question because even if you’re unsure, verbalizing your uncertainties will help you find your certainty.
