Saturn in Aquarius – from today (17th Dec 2020) for 3 years! (till March 2023)

Back in March 2020, I wrote, “On Sunday 22nd March 2020, Saturn arrives in Aquarius! Wild energies will begin to be pinned down. Stability, endurance, authority & hard lessons take focus .. instead of erratic, rebellion for sake of rebellion, thrill-seeking, disruptive behaviors..”

Well we all know what happened to the world since then.. Lockdowns came every where! Entertainment and leisure activities and industries came to a halt or where shut down.. We all only went out for exercise or to support loved ones .. And we all started going to the woods.. instead of Cinemas, pubs, clubs, football games, matches etc.. because nature was the only place we could go and be free (for a short while).

Well.. Saturn started retrograding on 11th May 2020, and moved back into Capricorn on 3rd July… and continued to move retrograde till 29th September. Then Saturn started to go direct in Capricorn..

That’s all like the just the pre-title action sequence of an action movie – well not so much action but an epic!

The opening titles are playing now.. and today on 17th December 2020, Saturn moves into Aquarius (again) after a gap of 5 and a half months.

Now, Saturn will slowly transit through Aquarius for the next 2+ years.. till 8th March 2023! Now comes all the hard work and weight.

If people thought that 2020 was a bad year, and as 2021 begins, we’re going to ease back out to our old ways .. Think again. Saturn isn’t going to let us get out of jail for free! We must pay with hard work!

While Jupiter also arrives in Aquarius and will be there for 1 year, it will soften the Saturn blow.. Expansions of horizons will occur.. but just alongside it, hard lessons, tasks will also be taking place. Future foundations will be getting laid.

There’s so much to say.. but for now.. here are the key dates of this Saturn transit through Aquarius.
