The Saturn Uranus Square 2021 — The Main Astrological Event of the Year

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In this article we are going to introduce the Saturn Uranus Square, a topic that will require future in-depth studies and posts. As we have discussed in the overall view of 2021, this is going to be the main event of the year. And we can’t ignore that this aspect is taking place just one year after the explosion of the still ongoing covid-19 pandemic.

So what can we expect from these two powerful Archetypes? How are they going to interact with each other during this square? And what are the main consequences that are going to manifest during this year? Let’s start by taking into account the main significations expressed by these two strong planets.

Saturn vs Uranus: The Archetypes at Play

Saturn and Uranus are two planets that in modern astrology rule together the zodiac sign of Aquarius. This implies that in a sense they know each other very well, and that they can get along easily. But before adding Aquarius into the equation, for now let’s just compare their significations to get an idea of what they represent.

Generally speaking we can say that the Archetypes they are an expression of represent antipodal forces. In the two columns below you can compare both lists of significations. You can look at them as pairs of opposites placed on the same row.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius 2021 — A Scale of Notes in the Music of the Spheres

Reading Time : 5 minutes

The winds of change blow from the east. The Mind looks to the future, sensing new possibilities, as the ideals shine like stars before dawn, promising a better world.
What could go wrong? What are the obstacles facing the path? Hesitation delays the moment of change. But all the issues to be addressed are slowly gathering together by the hour.

On January 30th Mercury is going to turn retrograde at 26° Aquarius. This is the first of the three retrograde periods of the year that are going to trace a great Triangle of Air in the sky. In this article we are going to talk about the stellium (cumulus of planets) that is slowing forming in Aquarius, as well as the role of Mercury Retrograde in activating it.

Stellium in Aquarius

As we know the Sun just entered Aquarius. And as we have discussed about, the Jupiter Saturn conjunction recently took place in that zodiac sign. This means that at the moment we’re not only having the Sun in Aquarius, but also Saturn and Jupiter.

To which we must now add Mercury as well, for a total of 4 planets. And as if that weren’t enough we’re also going to have Venus in Aquarius, joining the party from February 2nd (the day of Candlemas or Imbolc).

This is technically speaking a big stellium in Aquarius made of 5 planets. Basically half of the planets (5 out of 10) will be in Aquarius. But what’s the meaning of a stellium? How are we going to interpret it? And how does it relate to Mercury retrograde?

Jupiter Uranus Square 2021 — Social Media and the Twilight of a 12-year Cycle

Reading Time : 6 minutes

Aquarius is the dawn of the year. We experience the pure whiteness of this sign in February, witnessing to the return of the light piercing through the heart of Winter. Aurora, the light of the new day, brings down on earth the ideals of the brightest stars. And with them the promises of a real revolution are announced. Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.

Jupiter is the god of the highest spiritual ideals. Usually, in this zodiac sign it releases all their potential, fueling the humanitarian impulses with trust, expansion and optimism. Science and progress become the heralds of a new world, where all peoples unite in the name of universal values.

But is this always the case? Are we really going this year to receive an impulse in that direction? In this article we are going to talk about the Jupiter Uranus cycle. We are also going to see where we are at in this regard, as well as the repercussions for 2021. In particular we are going to focus on the role of Social Networks in the last decade to better understand where our society is going.

The Jupiter Uranus Cycle

In Mundane Astrology planetary cycles are very important to understand earthly events. If we take the slowest planets—Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter—we have 10 possible couples of planets. Each couple forms a cycle, which represents the unfolding of specific living archetypes on Earth.

Let’s take Jupiter and Uranus to clarify this concept. Every roughly 14 years these planets are in conjunction (see picture below in 2010-11). Jupiter is way faster than Uranus, so we can imagine the latter standing still, and the former revolving around it. It is no different than the lunar phases, but instead of having the Sun and the Moon we have Uranus and Jupiter. All this is happening of course from our perspective on the Earth.

As you can see we have several stages in this cycle. Every stage has a specific meaning. We can start from 2008 (sextile, in light blue) when the former cycle was ending end the seed of the new cycle was in preparation.

Happy Imbolc 2017

Reading Time : < 1 minute We are about halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. The light of the new sun has begun to shine bright, emerging from the darkness of deep winter. And even though the cold season has not ended yet, we are out of its hardest part. As every main festival celebrating the Wheel of the Year, Imbolc is about light. In this case the light coming back again, getting everything ready for the upcoming spring (actually, for the Celts Imbolc was the first day of the season). The light of Imbolc is the white light of purification. It dispels the darkness, revitalizing the stagnant energies of the old year. It is a time of renewal—especially physical—which often manifests through colds and flus. It is no coincidence that this festival falls under the sign of Aquarius. It is the sign of revolution which breaks through old, dysfunctional structures, bringing a new order under the auspices of high ideals such as modernity and progress. New year resolutions—sown early in the season—find at Imbolc the first opportunity to turn into a clear vision. Their potential is disclosed.
