The Saturn in Aquarius Transit Begins on March 21, 2020
It’s time for our attention to turn on Saturn, the change agent planet that realigns structures and delivers long lasting achievement, enters the sign of Aquarius. Get ready for new directional shifts on a personal and global front as one of the most influential of the planets, begins to operate in his new home of Aquarius. Given that Saturn only changes signs every 2.5-3 years or so, it’s a big deal when he makes a move. From the period of March 21st – July 1st, Saturn will give us some hints into areas of our lives that will need to go through a restructuring – Aquarius style. On December 17th, 2020, he’ll re-enter Aquarius, once again, and remain there till 2023.
Saturn works well in airy Aquarius because his influence helps to lighten Saturn’s harsh ways.
As a result of the Aquarian influence, we can expect new themes to become prominent in our personal lives, as well as in society. New inventions, ways of thinking, mysticism /occultism and working within group dynamics will be just a few of the “Aquarian” type themes popping up. I personally believe more discoveries into space travel and other “space/galaxy” themes will dominate. Anything different and unusual will be coming onto the scene and likely get new kinds of attention.
The last Saturn in Aquarius Transit was February 1991 through January 1994
Major events of that time period included: Hubble Telescope launch, the first IBM ThinkPad released to market, Bill Clinton elected as President in the USA and the Democratic party came back into office, Rodney King riots, the Cold War came to an end with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cambodia Civil War ended and the first free elections of Taiwan were held.
From a personal standpoint, those born under the sign of Aquarius and or ruled by it will experience the greatest amount of shifts.
However, all of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius) will be driven to make profound changes. Those with their natal Saturn in Aquarius will experience their Saturn Returns, a momentous time in a person’s life that delivers new initiations, as well as responsibilities. While those with natal Saturn in Leo (Aquarius’ opposite) will experience their Saturn opposition, a time when the foundations built of the last 14 years begin to be tested. For both groups, important themes of life will either need to close out or be taken to a new heightened level of achievement.
