Wednesday, FEBRUARY 17
Saturn forms a square to Uranus today, generating some friction. It’s the first of three such hits in 2021, with the other two set to occur in June and December. At the root of tension is a clash between our need for freedom and spontaneity and our need for structure and stability. Ideally, we can find creative ways to satisfy these diverging needs, perhaps by giving form to our ideals and quest for progress.
Still, rules and limitations are harder to tolerate, but life feels too chaotic without some lines drawn. Attempts to assert our individuality, freedom, and originality tend to undermine our feeling of groundedness and security. Yet, we are not satisfied when we conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force us to do something different or free ourselves from old habits during this period. Adjusting our plans may be in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge.
Setbacks tend to be temporary and could very well lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. While this aspect is active, however, we can feel some real frustration. In particular, differences in opinion can feel more problematic than usual, blocking progress or leading to delays. People we relied on to date may seem less reliable at this time.
We have an unusual situation where Saturn, the conservative planet, is in a progressive sign, Aquarius, while Uranus, the progressive planet, is in a conservative sign, Taurus. At times, these energies can feel oppressive, and we might all too often find ourselves at cross-purposes, even when the end game is similar.
This morning, Mars forms a semi-square to Chiron and standing up for what we believe in may not be comfortable just for now. There can be difficulties expressing our anger or desires in a direct manner, which can lead to some challenges but possibly also some interesting detours.
The Moon spends the day in the sign of stable Taurus, although with the Moon’s alignment with Uranus, we’re not content with the same routine.
