Saturn transits Aquarius: December 2020 – March 2023

On December 17, 2020 Saturn – planet of conservatism, traditional values, selfishness, constraint, restriction and loss – moved to Aquarius and from then till March 7, 2023 will have some influence over trends and events related to human rights, invention and technology.

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. They include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and the right to gather and protest. 

Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination, but Saturn’s transit of Aquarius inclines towards a loss of human rights as government imposed constraints and restrictions curb your rights and freedoms. Covid-19 is likely to play a key role in the event trend.

This Saturn transit highlights the downside of techno-centric living and the role of technology in curbing global freedoms. Internet and social media restrictions are human rights abuses.

This is a perilous sign transit in the Pluto period of the Age of Aquarius. It signposts restrictions and loss to your basic human rights and the contamination of altruistic-humanitarian endeavor by greed and self-interest.

On March 7, 2023 Saturn moves out of Aquarius and on March 23 Pluto moves in.

Saturn and the Saturn cycle

Events related to Saturn’s transit of Aquarius are more inclined to occur when progressed Saturn forms an aspect in the Saturn cycle.

Saturn’s house position in a country’s Saturn cycle chart shows the area of mundane life that is being influenced by orthodox thinking, fear, cautiousness, conservatism, self-interest, protectionism, security measures, lands, crops, farmers and weather for the chart’s duration. 

Transit Saturn’s house position in the chart indicates the area of mundane life that’s currently being influenced by his fearful/conservative vibration.

The current Saturn cycle commenced February 16, 1997 at 5.25.53am GMT. It ends March 2026.

Saturn’s sign transit and you

Saturn’s transit of Aquarius will have no influence on you personally. Its influence is strictly global and relates to global human rights and technology trends.

But Saturn in your birth chart does provide valuable information that you need to know about. He reveals, by his house position and aspects, the strength of your security urge and the area of your life where there is dearth, struggle and laborious effort.

Saturn is the planet of work, responsibility, economy and loss and major events involving these matters only occur when Saturn is activated by progression.

What’s currently taking place in your life and what’s on your mind is primarily determined by the major progressed aspects in your chart and the local environment in which you live, work and operate.

Transit Saturn in your chart by its house position and aspects to birth chart and progressed planets has an inconsequential influence on your life.
