2021: Struggles Between the PAST and the FUTURE
A square between Saturn and Uranus is active all year. Here’s what it tells us about where we come from and where we are headed.
Transcript of 2021: Struggles Between the PAST and the FUTURE
Hey there! I’m Marina Ormes, the founder of Astrology Heals at astrologyheals.com.
The reason I started my business Astrology Heals and the reason I have done this astrology work since 1993 is because of the way that astrology helps the healing process.
When we can understand and get that bigger picture perspective of what’s going on symbolically and energetically, it helps us see the context of events and circumstances that are unfolding in our lives and in the world and the collective.
Evolution and the United States of America
We’re in the midst of some significant developments in terms of history and especially with the United States. The U.S. is my country so it’s the one I’m most familiar with.
Anyway, what we have is this experience of some dynamics that have been around for a very long time pushing us to a new level of of healing. That is what life does. Life pushes us into a healing process, and sometimes we go willingly, sometimes we go kicking and screaming, but the point is that the universe wants us to succeed.
The universe wants us to evolve and grow and heal and move forward into our full potential. Whether that’s for us as individuals or for a country or whatever… so let’s talk about what’s happening this year.
Shaking Up Institutions Based in the Past
I’ve talked a lot in these videos about Aquarian energies in January and February 2021. We had some significant… a large number of planets in Aquarius and some significant Aquarian energies, which brings the energies of shakeup and change, for example the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Aquarius brings unexpected developments and surprises but also breaks for freedom, breakthroughs, new opportunities presenting themselves, and new ways forward showing up in the consciousness of individuals and in the collective.
We are in that process right now of riding these Aquarian energies to help us make these shifts and changes, and the thing I wanted to talk about today is an ongoing square.
Pressure to Evolve
A square is a geometric relationship between planets in the sky. It means they are 90° apart in the zodiac and that just means that when one planet is setting another planet would be immediately above, in the sky directly above us, so 90° apart. One would be on the horizon and one would be directly above. That’s what a square is.
A square is happening this year between Saturn and Uranus, and February 17 is and was the first pass of the square, or the first time that square is exact. The square brings pressure. In June and December that square will be exact again as planets go retrograde and direct.
It will pass through the exact square three times. This square is significant because it really does speak to where we are and what’s happening in our evolution.
The Urge to Hold Things Together Meets the Impulse to Change
What we have is the planet Saturn, which is the planet of hard work and effort, just like Capricorn is the sign of hard work and effort. Saturn brings a sense of of responsibility, of laying foundations, of looking to the past, of planning, being responsible… and you put that in the sign of Aquarius, which is all about breaking free of old molds… it’s revolutionary, rebellious energy that says “reject the past, reject the status quo, reject the norms” in order to move forward.
First of all, Saturn’s not really, you know, it’s not really in its element in Aquarius, even though it is a traditional ruler of Aquarius. It represents the energy of holding on, right? Of deepening our roots and laying our foundations.
So as we are moving through, what we’re doing is we’re taking on this notion of what our foundations, our institutions, our systems of government, our systems of how we operate and the ways that we hold things together–reality itself–are really about. It is very Saturnian.
Those foundations are changing. In Aquarius, we are finding realities that feel more free, that feel more open, that feel more honoring of different experiences and different needs, that are more equality and freedom focused, more humanitarian, more compassionate, and more future oriented.
Then you have the planet Saturn in Aquarius squaring Uranus in Taurus. As opposed to Saturn, Uranus is the planet of freedom and authenticity, being your own person, marching to your own drummer, breaking free of old molds, and being authentic.
So the planet which is squaring Saturn is in Taurus and… it’s not Capricorn, but it is in an earth sign. Taurus likes things to be stable, to be predictable, to be reliable, and “I just want to understand how it works and just keep going. I just want to do what I know.”
That’s what Taurus is like and you put this planet of freedom and breakthrough and rebellion in a sign of not wanting to move or do anything different and we have an interesting recipe.
Holding Back In Order to Move Forward
So we have this pressure of these energies coming together. These planets are squaring each other throughout this year, as I mentioned February 17 and then again in June and December.
The square is active all year, is the point, and it is putting pressure on us but we’re going to have this feeling as we go through the year of forward and back, like “I’m breaking free. No I’m not. I’m changing my foundations. Wait a minute that’s disruptive. I don’t like that. Push it back, make it the way it was, make it safe again. No… break free. No… do it this way. No, do it that way.”
We’re going to have a lot of that kind of feeling this year, so, get used to it. Ha ha… and really what it’s inviting us to do is to stay grounded in what’s important to us, right?
So we have these doors that are opening and really, to be ready to walk through those doorways when they open, to have courage to speak our truth, to stand up for what’s important to us, and to use these opportunities and this energy of pressure to move things forward, to advance a cause, to advance progress, to live more authentically.
Creating a Foundation that Serves Future Progress
So it’s about seeing the little shifts and openings when they happen, but also recognizing that what you’re doing is you’re creating a new foundation. You’re creating a foundation that is going to serve future progress.
