Saturn Square Uranus TransitSaturn square Uranus is a major planetary aspect that occurs every 22 years. There is a series of 3 squares from February to December, 2021.

Natal Saturn Square Uranus

Saturn square Uranus natal creates a tremendous amount of inner tension. This tension gives you an endless supply of creative and spontaneous energy that makes you very productive but also controversial. You are strongly independent, self-aware and progressive. But you also have a strong sense of responsibility and appreciation of the stability that structure and tradition give. This inner conflict between independence and responsibility is the source of your tension but also your creative brilliance.

Trying to be responsible and loyal while also being free to be yourself is a constant battle. It means you may experience sudden relationships breakups and career changes. Disagreements about your level of commitment in relationships can lead to sudden outbursts of temper. You may also experience conflict with superiors at work and authorities in general. It is likely that you have difficulty obeying rules that you feel limit your freedom, creativity, and self-expression.

You can have a polarizing effect on others which can give rise to many supporters and detractors. Your respect for tradition and the State goes only so far because of your strong belief in personal freedoms. You may become an activist or campaigner for human rights or the environment. However, it’s unlikely you are a real anarchist, preferring to change things from the inside.

Throughout life, you have to find a balance between duty and freedom. This means you must learn to coöperate and compromise. You are at your best when you can work within a system while having enough freedom to make your own choices. Through many tests and challenges, you will learn to find a balance between routine and excitement, religion and science, conservative and liberal, sane and crazy.

If you rebel too much you will lose support and the stability and security you need for success. Sticking to a routine and always toeing the line will block your creativity and increase your tension to boiling point. Ignoring the rules and moral codes of society would lead to you being labeled a weirdo or worse. So you need to be yourself and do your own thing that must be moderated by practical and ethical considerations.

Learning to relax will help you channel your highly charged energy in a more efficient and less disruptive way. Sean Lennon has natal Saturn square Uranus at only 0°02′ orb. He found success through Transcendental Meditation:

“for me, it’s like a scientific method to calm my brain down and making my frontal lobe more active. It’s an exercise, really. It helps me to have about 10 percent more conscious thinking.” [1]

Saturn Square Uranus Transit

Saturn square Uranus transit occurs about every fourteen years and can bring about change that you don’t want. It also makes it harder to make the kind of changes you do want. This can be a very frustrating time of rising tension and sudden, expected changes. But it does not have to be like that. If you stay open-minded, patient and flexible, what seems to be challenged can be turned into opportunities to rid yourself of negative, restrictive and limiting things in your life.

It is best not to force change that you want but to adapt to changing conditions. Wait to see what areas of life that start causing problems and deal with that. This transit will make it obvious what areas of your life are no longer working in your best interests. Your intuition and higher self-awareness may not be working so well. So take notice of the simple, practical things that start making you tense and anxious.

This is not the time to resist change, nor is it the time to overreact. A well-considered, methodical, patient and step by step approach is best. Commitment and responsibility may be issues that cause stress in relationships or in your career. You may also come to realize that bad habits or outdated beliefs are blocking your progress.

This can be a particularly challenging time if you rely on creative breakthroughs and intuitive insights for your work. If you lack inspiration or face a creative block, you may need to take a new approach to your work, try a new technique or a change of scene. Also, your personal freedoms and rights may be restricted. If your duties and responsibilities become too oppressive, it is better to make adjustments now before they crystallize as new structures in your life.

  1. You have an error here Jamie,
    Its says ” Celebrities” with Saturn trine uranos.

  2. This can be a very frustrating time of rising tension and sudden [ expected ] changes. *unexpected i think!

  3. For me, next year 2021 Saturn in 8th will square uranus in 11th. I don’t have anyone left of whose death would affect me lol but still could it indicate sudden death of someone?(literally/metaphorically) Maybe partner in finances? Lost my mom at transit uranus (conj natal sun) square tr. pluto 10/7H axis and father at transit uranus square transit moon 2020 same as above 8/11H axis.
    Looks like death is an emerging theme rather than submerging.

  4. I’ll have Saturn in my 9th & Uranus in my 12th – any ideas Jamie? I’ve had probs with focus, memory & concentration 4 years with my epilepsy & hoping my daily meditation will help calm my already anxious mind so I can study again. Thanks.
