Saturn square Uranus is the most important Astrological transit of 2021 and 2022. It will last the entire year and beyond. Saturn Uranus alignments represent periods of radical change and disruption to the status quo. They’re good times to break out of old habits and patterns that have become too restrictive and limiting. Any structures in your life that no longer serve a useful or creative purpose can be dismantled and reformed – and you might not have much choice in the matter. These hard alignments affect the world and represent periods of forced growth and change – resistance is futile! – but that doesn’t mean all change is good.  read more

Saturn in Aquarius

December 2020 - March 2023

In Ancient times, and to our ancient ancestors, Saturn was the farthest planet in the Solar System. It is the last visible planet we can see, and it represents the perceived limits of our solar system. So, too, it represents the perceived limits we see in our lives -- those fears, doubts, and challenges we think are impossible to overcome. We just have to remember: Our soul growth requires us to overcome those limits. In this case, what we believe holds us back, but is exactly what we must work through for our growth and expansion. Saturn is like the teacher in school who wants you to do really well but pushes you to your limit to earn your A.

Uranus in Taurus

May 2018 - April 2026

Uranus in Taurus is an unusual combination. Taurus is the most stabilizing of earth signs; the most grounded and fertile of the signs. It's fields are famous for yielding incredible crops. A planet’s transit through these lands will always speak to the ways in which we work with them. How we build, grow, use resources and how we value the earth and its resources. The bull has been connected to wealth, currency, stock and trade for thousands of years. When a planet rolls through this sign, it teaches us something important about how we are relating to these exchanges.

Neptune in Pisces

April 2011 - February 2026

Neptune’s natural home is in Pisces, intensifying the spiritual energy of this planetary transit. Neptune is the ruler of the underworld. You can choose to bask in the intriguing depths of your soul, or sink into the murkiness of your fears, addictions and resentments. This phase began on April 4, 2011 and lasted through September 16, 2011, and after a retrograde cycle, continues from February 3, 2012 for fourteen more years.

On the challenge side, Neptune in Pisces deals with collective insanity, fears and phobias and the Savior complex. This is when you are told to do certain things and if you do what you have been told you will be saved. People become hypnotized with fear and follow along to their detriment.

Jupiter in Pisces

December 28, 2021 - December 21, 2022

Jupiter, the Planet of Luck, expansion and optimism, is entering into Pisces the sign it rules on December 28. This is one of the most helpful planetary transits in 2022. Jupiter will be in Pisces until May 10, dip out into Aries for a bit, and then re-enter the sign of the fish once again in October.

This is wonderful, it is a mystical, magical, and lucky transit because it carries such good fortune. Jupiter only stays in one sign a year. The last time it was in Pisces was 2011.

Chiron in Aries

April 2018 - June 2026

The last time Chiron was in Aries was from 1968–1977, and before that, it was 1918–1927. So, what can we expect when Chiron is in Aries now?  As the first sign of the zodiac, not to mention a fire sign with a Mars ruler, Chiron in Aries comes in hot. Impatient Aries doesn’t have good bedside manners when dealing with our wounds, preferring to rip the band-aid right off. Aries isn’t afraid to say, "Here’s what your problem is! Now fix it!” Because of this, the arrival of Chiron in Aries is often a violent one. For example, on April 4, 1968, two days after Chiron entered Aries, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, highlighting racism, oppression, and brutality in the U.S. Before that, Chiron entered Aries around the same time as the Spanish Flu in 1918, a pandemic that killed millions. The pandemic, coupled with WWI, created “the Lost Generation” that defined the rest of Chiron’s time in Aries. Aries hits hard.
