Saturn square Uranus
(7° Aquarius/Taurus)

Saturn in Aquarius gives an emphasis on
progress, but with the square to Uranus,
progress is spotty. This is a conflict
between air and earth, between idealistic
concepts and pragmatic realities.

Usually Saturn is the rigid, conservative
planet, but in Aquarius, the focus is on your
responsibility to visualize and create a
better world. Ideals can still be held too
tightly, however, and sometimes it looks like
everything’s on the right track, but nothing
is really moving. There’s a danger of
people posturing, virtue-signaling, teaching
and correcting each other in a very obvious
way, but never really changing anything.

And usually Uranus is the rebel planet, but
in Taurus, it’s more conservative. So the
desire to cling to the past can careen off
and become extremism. People may
become more possessive, to a manic
degree, and clamp onto anything that
spells security to them, even if there’s no
real connection to the things they need. If
they’re used to it, you better not try to take
it away, or they’ll blow you away.  

So during this time, there’s a lot of conflict,
and you keep running into obstacles to
progress. Strategy is essential, but even
the best-laid plans can hit a lot of
unexpected bumps. Creativity is also
essential, because it will take some
ingenuity to work with whatever life throws
at you.

January 27 to March 21

February 21 to 28
Mars trine Pluto

March 1 to 5
Venus sextile Uranus

Mars trine Pluto
(25° Taurus/Capricorn)

This is a time of focus,
resourcefulness and daring, and
it lends itself to important work.  
You’re not content to deal with
the surface of things, but are
focused on whatever is wrong at
the core.  And so it’s a good
transit for revolutionaries, repair
people, and investigative
reporters.  You pay attention to
root problems, and so you are
able to suggest more intensive
ways to fix things.

This is also a good time for
athletes.  You are able to push
yourself to go the extra mile, to
break the record.  Even non-
athletes may get off their duffs
during this transit, and try
something physical that they’ve
never done before.  You’re more
likely to take a chance, to risk
looking like an idiot, in order to
break through some inner

This adds to ambition, and
there’s some danger of going to
extremes. But because it
happens in earth signs, you are
able to stay pretty grounded.
You know when to push, and
when to wait, and so you can
make good, steady progress
towards your goals, and you may
even have a breakthrough. You’
re especially successful when
you feel aligned with a particular
purpose, on a deep level.

Sun sextile Uranus
(7° Pisces/Taurus)

With the sun in Pisces, you are
very open and imaginative,
very sensitive to everything
going on around you.  And
during this transit, you can take
that new awareness in some
surprising directions.

You not only notice all kinds of
new and different things, but
you’re inspired to do something
about them.  You’re energized
by a sense of possibilities.  This
is a great time to break new
ground in a scientific or artistic
field, or to be the advance
guard with a new technology.
You combine your intuition and
your practical knowledge, and
you are able to go further than
others have gone before.

This transit makes change a
little easier, with more people
seeing it as exciting and
fulfilling.  The future is what we
make it, and the desire to
reshape it is very strong right
now.  We are all willing to work
together, to make sure that
every change is a positive one
for the least powerful in our
midst. The sun in Pisces is
compassionate and open-
hearted, and, during this
transit, you are inspired to use
your gifts and talents to make
the world a better place.

February 23 to 27
Sun sextile Uranus

March 1 to 7
Mercury conjunct Jupiter

Venus sextile Uranus
(7° Pisces/Taurus)

This is an exciting transit, especially
when it comes to love and
friendship.  During this time, you
could meet a lot of interesting
people, learn new things, and
explore different facets of your own
personality in the process.  You’re
drawn to those who are outside your
usual circle, people who have
something to teach you.

A friendship could go in a new
direction, and become romantic. You
might discover new things about
someone, as you see them outside
their usual milieu.  When it comes to
romantic gestures, you’re inspired to
do things a little differently, and this
can definitely pique your lover’s
interest.  And because Venus is in
the gentle, mystical sign Pisces,
there could be a strong spiritual
connection between you.    

You pick up on the way people feel,
and you are especially generous
and compassionate, ready to give
everything you have if someone
needs it.  Even with strangers,
you’re more sensitive and intuitive
than usual. You might start talking to
someone at some random event,
and find out that you both lived in
India in past lives, or that you both
play the mandolin.  A friendship
could be formed that lasts forever,
or your meeting could be preserved
as a beautiful memory, never to be

This is a great aspect for artists, as
it encourages new ways of looking at
your material. You want to do
innovative things, things that haven’t
been done before.  At the same
time, your work is accessible and
emotional, and people are very
moved by it.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter
(17° Aquarius)

This is a time of ambition, optimism,
and far-sightedness, in which you can
visualize a large landscape of
possibilities. You suddenly become
aware of all kinds of new prospects,
and some brilliant solutions to your
problems. With Mercury direct again,
you can get started on some new
projects, things that you’ve been
wanting to do, things that have been
derailed or postponed during the past

This is especially good for learning
new things. Aquarius is a sign that is
bent on knowledge – scientific,
technological, social, and historical.
You’re engaged in learning all you
can, and teaching what you know to
others. You want to share the new
ideas, theories and information that
come your way.

And there’s really a flood of it. There’s
so much to take in, and there are so
many different ways to spread the
information around. This is an
excellent time for communication -
good for writing, publishing, making
speeches, having meetings, and
getting into long, involved
conversations with interesting people.
It’s good for friendships, for study
groups and book clubs, and for
political organizations.   

The main danger now is a tendency to
excess. Because you’re so immersed
in your own world-view, you may have
a tendency to lecture other people.
And although you will pick up quite a
few followers, you may also get into
disputes with others who see things
quite differently.
