Saturn Squares Uranus: What’s Your Story of Change Going to Be in 2021?

astrology Feb 16, 2021

Do you know what structure in your life is wanting to be changed this year?

The big astrological event of 2021--Saturn squaring Uranus--is here to deliver the information.

Wednesday, at 2:08PM ET, Saturn will form a 90 degree angle--or square, in astrology terms--to Uranus. This will be the first of three such "squares" in 2021, an official introduction to your 2021 story of change.

While you may not get all of the information for your 2021 story of change on Wednesday, you should receive a sneak peek of sorts, so pay attention to what happens that day.

  • What theme/s come up for you?
  • What struggles? What frustrations?
  • What invitations? What new ideas? What awakening?

What challenge do you face that may be remedied by changing the structure of your life? What opportunity is calling your name, if only you have the courage to start doing things differently?

Be on the lookout, Wednesday, and write down what you notice in your journal or on a digital note in your smartphone as this energy will be most intense then. Then let it percolate.

The story will continue to cook on its own (and may have already started simmering), but you can stir it consciously from time to time instead of being surprised down the line with a pot that boils over the rim because you weren't consciously tending to it.

If in doubt, ask your soul for help or let her know you are open and listening to her guidance. Would you give help to someone if they didn't ask? Not as likely or not as much. By inviting your soul in, you give her full room to work on your behalf.

Some change is harder or easier than others--in either case, I invite you to consider the possibility that all events in the universe are generally unfolding for your highest good, even if they feel distasteful or even disturbing at first.

I do not say this from a Pollyanna place, having suffered my share of pain over the years. But I have also discovered--with patience, perseverance, and an open mind--that even those events we despise can play an important role in our personal evolution and spiritual growth.

I am hoping that whatever radical change Uranus is bringing into your life this year (Uranus is not just the planet of change, but of radical change that can strike light lightning), you have all the resources you need to face it and leverage it for your highest good.
