Saturn has been oppositional to Uranus since October 2008. Saturn represents the voice of the establishment, “the way it has always been done.” Uranus is the innovator – the unusual. The pull between Saturn and Uranus is a continuing process which begins with the radical urge of Uranus to bring change and new ideas putting pressure on Saturn to evolve and transform. This tremendous resistance can stir up feelings of fear and a longing for the past (Saturn). After Saturn regains it’s foothold, the cycle begins over.
Most major planetary cycles have three hits, but this opposition cycle will have five phases, signaling its particular significance for permanent change. It’s important to view these cycles within a framework of faith and understanding so that we can use the information to our advantage and not become overwhelmed by it. This is a time to examine our own lives and see where our life is not authentic, where we are not being true to ourselves (Uranus) and where changes need to be made to the structure of our lives (Saturn) as a result. This is the perfect time to cultivate faith in the natural flow of life and to increase our understanding that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
