We’ve had quite the year. Early on we navigated through our core values and relationships during a Venus Retrograde. Then, there were the extremes leading to inspiration or imbalance with Jupiter opposing Uranus. The Lunar Nodes changed signs.. And last week’s Scorpio Full Moon was emotionally powerful and potent with some endings and reminders to surrender.
Now, all things being equal, we’re in a time of manifestation and possibilities as Saturn in Sagittarius Trines Uranus in Aries.
Foundations are ignited with Inspired Awareness
At this point, we’ve hopefully know more about we value and what we want. The extreme situations have either brought resolution or dissolution. Whatever decisions came from the Jupiter/Uranus energy— balanced or unbalanced, visionary or extreme, Saturn in Sagittarius, is now working hard on the results with Uranus in Aries, who provides the genius, the spark, the assertiveness, and the alternative perspective.
Because this connection is through a Trine, which operates with fewer restrictions and more possibilities of success, whatever decisions were made, whether labeled as ‘bad or good’, ‘inclusive or exclusive’, ‘revolutionary or dictatorial’, Saturn follows up, building results with little resistance. We add the elbow grease.
This is a super time to manifest especially when rooted in strong philosophy or belief system. Saturn sets the rules based on collective ideas of what is meaningful (Sagittarius) while Uranus can wake the masses up to what philosophies are based on distorted truths. How a truth is determined to be distorted depends on the perspective, the consciousness and evolutionary status of who is waking up.
What about for your Sun or Rising Sign?
These are not predictions, rather statements representing symbolically what Uranus might have awakened and what Saturn’s focus has been over the last few years. Both of these planets are traveling through the end of their respective zodiac signs. The Saturn/Uranus trine is helps with integrating necessary responsibility and the freedom to individuate. Your personal birth chart may reflect other over-riding influences.

Disseminating Trine – Walking the Talk
This Trine is in Disseminating Phase and can, generically, be called a Give Back aspect. Ideally all the Saturn/Uranus experiences since 1988 lead to wisdom and maturity. Now it is time to contribute to the greater good. This is Teacher energy, a time of mentoring, sharing the bigger picture. It’s time to live according to the wisdom attained. Uranus shines light into the cracks of the current foundation; Saturn rebuilds the foundation.
Philosophy and meaning are defined by experiences of the past with the added benefit of clarity— which sometimes happens surprisingly quickly during a Uranus time.
With wisdom, it seems easier to meet or accept our responsibilities (Saturn) while also expressing our uniqueness (Uranus).
Since 1988, when Saturn and Uranus conjoined in Sagittarius, a journey of truth-seeking and exploration began. The Hubble Space Craft and Telescope set out to survey more of the Universe. Interestingly, the three conjunctions that year, happened as the two planets were traveling the Galactic Center of the Universe around 27° Sagittarius.
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking was published. Republican George H. W. Bush won the U.S. Presidential election. Progressive Conservative Brian Mulroney won in the Canadian Federal Election. Here’s some more on 1988.
How long does the Saturn/Uranus Trine last?
With a 1 degree orb, this started at the end of April, peaks on May 18 and lasts through the month and even into early June. This is the second of three trines. The first transit occurred last December 24, the last one will be on November 11.
What if we don’t get what we want?
1. Trine energy doesn’t offer the tension of other transits. It’s happy to comply, but we must take action.
2. Beliefs. If our beliefs don’t resonate with what we think we want, then can we expect to receive the blessings of this transit?
For this I recommend a practice of paying attention to what the Mind is thinking. Insight Meditation can be helpful. Writing in a journal, using the Morning Pages technique from The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, can also help us get a handle on our beliefs. I just love this practice! Any practice that helps us to become aware of our thoughts, strengthen and merge our Personal Will and Soul’s Will improves our chances.
If we don’t get what we want, we still learn more about ourselves.
3. Because this transit has such little resistance, the favorable outcomes that do occur may not be exactly what we expect.
Two examples of success depending on philosophy of inclusion or exclusion.
Bob has a vision of inclusiveness and a natural talent to heal. His ideal is to use alternative healing modalities and find ways to help anyone of any cultural group or economic demographic. Whoever asks, gets help. Putting that in motion, he gives back natural talents and builds credibility. His vision of the future (Jupiter/Uranus) is supported by Saturn. Over time more people have healthier lives.
Maria is alarmed at the chaos in her community as more immigrants arrive. She’s a natural organizer with a vision to heal the community. She finds like-minded people who support her vision. Soon limits are placed on who can join the community. There’s talk about digging a trench, putting up a fence, special codes to get in and out, hiring a guard. The timing is just right for ideas and visions for the future. Maria feels good about how she is protecting her clan. She is giving back to her community.
Saturn supports both Bob and Maria in their efforts, though they have different philosophies. Saturn/Uranus brings results with little resistance.
I hope you received some value from this article. May Saturn and Uranus join forces to ensure your success. Peace.
