Saturn square Uranus (2nd hit)
10.55 The accelerating Moon reaches her waxing crescent phase
13.50 The Moon at 10 Leo sextiles her node from north of the ecliptic.
A tight Fixed T-Square is manifest involving the Moon, Saturn and Uranus 19.00 to 20.00 GMT
19.28 The Moon at 13 Leo waxing square Uranus at 13 Taurus
19.29 The Moon at 13 Leo opposition Saturn at 13 Aquarius
22.02 Saturn at 13 Aquarius waning square Uranus at 13 Taurus. In 2021 the main outer body aspect is a fixed waning square in the 44 year synodic cycle of Saturn and Uranus. This is a difficult aspect, but not in the league of 2020 aspects. This cycle began in 1988 in Sagittarius, culminated with their opposition (5 times) 2008 to 2010 and completes in 2032 in Gemini. The 2021 last quarter aspect will induce political, financial and social changes of possibly a drastic nature and a measure of instability. We will observe a shattering of old worn out structures so that a revitalization can occur. The aspect peaked in 2021 on Feb 17th, and repeats on June 14th and on Dec 24th with a slight return in early October 2022.
STATE OF THE SKY:-
The Sun reaches 24 degrees Gemini today. Retro-Mercury is also in Gemini. Jupiter and Neptune are in Pisces. The Moon and Mars are in Leo. The Northern hemisphere Summer Solstice is one week away. We have now left the eclipse fortnight and will shortly pass out of the current eclipse season.
Mercury is now a retrograde morning star in Gemini. He is residing for a lengthy 66 days in this sign because of this retrograde phase.
Mercury turns direct at 16 Gemini on June 22nd. He squares Neptune a final time on July 6th, is out of his shadow on July 7th and enters Cancer on July 11th. This is a beguiling and at times confusing residence because of Mercury's triple square to Neptune.
Venus is currently an evening 'star' is in Cancer for a brief but endearing 25 days. She trines Neptune on June 21st with grace and flair and woefully opposes Pluto on June 23rd. Venus enters Leo on June 27th. Looking ahead, Venus is at greatest evening star brightness on Dec 7th and she turns retrograde on Dec 19th 2021 at 26 Capricorn. Venus is at Inferior Conjunction with the Sun on Jan 8th 2022.
Mars is in Leo for almost 7 weeks. This is a fiery combination which powerfully colours the weeks ahead with uncompromising 'full on' unconditional lavish energy. Mars opposes Saturn on July 1st and squares Uranus on July 4th, this is a challenging time. It is a 'fixed T-square formidable' and in a way a climax of meaning for the story of the year 2021. Venus is conjunct Mars at 20 degrees Leo on July 13th. This is a close and hot (0.5 degree alignment) encounter with Venus, extraordinary acts at this time may be in evidence. Mars opposes Jupiter on July 29th, always 'event producing', and Mars enters Virgo on this day. Mars has a big bash with retrograde Mercury and the Sun in mid Libra on Oct 9th 2021. Mars next turns retrograde at 25 Gemini on Oct 30th 2022. He resides in Gemini either side of that date for seven months.
Jupiter since May 13th is in Pisces residing there with Neptune.
Jupiter turns retrograde at 2 degrees Pisces on June 20th and re-enters Aquarius on July 28th. This first phase of Jupiter in Pisces is a strong taste of what is to follow next year. Then on October 18th 2021 Jupiter turns direct at 22 degrees Aquarius. He re-enters Pisces on Dec 29th 2021 when the real business starts. Jupiter then sextiles Uranus, a fine expansive, progressive and creative aspect on Feb 18th 2022. He conjuncts Neptune at 24 Pisces on April 12th, the highlight of the residence, (the 'Florence Nightingale combination conjunction', more to follow on this one), and he sextiles Pluto in an embrace of power and transformation on May 3rd 2022. Jupiter leaves Pisces for Aries on May 10th 2022. He returns again to Pisces from Oct 28th 2022 to Dec 20th 2022 with a direct station on Nov 23rd at 28 Pisces. By the time of the Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice 2022 Jupiter has left Pisces for good. Today's ingress is 'first blood'. Love like blood. Stay tuned.
Saturn is now retrograde in Aquarius.
In 2021 the main outer body aspect is a fixed waning square in the 44 year synodic cycle of Saturn and Uranus. This is a difficult aspect, but not in the league of 2020 aspects. This cycle began in 1988 in Sagittarius, culminated with their opposition (5 times) 2008 to 2010 and completes in 2032 in Gemini. The 2021 last quarter aspect will induce political, financial and social changes of possibly a drastic nature and a measure of instability. We will observe a shattering of old worn out structures so that a revitalization can occur. The aspect peaked in 2021 on Feb 17th, and repeats on June 14th and on Dec 24th with a slight return in early October 2022.
Uranus the planet of inspiration and revolution is direct in Taurus, the sign of enduring institution and banking, turning retrograde on Aug 19th. Uranus remains in Taurus for 7 years. Massive changes in the world of finance and ownership are about to take place. The last time Uranus resided in Taurus was between 1934 and 1941 and before that 1850 to 1859 the time of the Industrial Revolution.
Neptune is direct in Pisces turning retrograde on June 25th. He has been in this sign since 2011. Neptune in Pisces is symbolic of the greatest watery immersion in the deepest subliminal and spiritual ocean. Neptune is in its own sign of Pisces, a transit that only occurs every 165 years. Neptune rules Pisces and also rules the deepest realms of the subconscious mind. The oceanic vibration of love is flowing with a deeper and higher frequency. Our human mission is to flow with it. Art, music and science are enhanced with the progress of this residence. Neptune enters Aries on March 30th 2025.
Pluto is now retrograde in Capricorn. he turns direct on October 6th at 24 Capricorn. He has been in Capricorn since 2008. Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23rd 2023.
The next eclipses are a partial lunar eclipse on Nov 19th at 27 Taurus square Jupiter, and a Total Solar Eclipse, visible from Antarctica, on Dec 4th quincunx Uranus at 12 Sagittarius.
The next Total Lunar eclipse is a blisteringly big eclipse, visible from the UK, and is at 26 Scorpio, during the early hours of Monday May 16th 2022. .
There is another Total Lunar eclipse in 2022 on November 8th. This is a daytime event for the UK.
The next Lunar Standstill is in 2024-2025. A 'standstill Full Moon' occurs on the day of the Northern Hemisphere Summer Solstice, June 21st 2024.
Earlier that same year, 2024, we can also look forward to the next 'American Total Solar Eclipse' on April 8th 2024. See you, possibly in Texas.
