They say that opposites attract, and sometimes that attraction causes enough sparks to make you pay closer attention. Where your attention goes, energy flows! This year Saturn in Aquarius will exactly square Uranus in Taurus three times: Feb. 17, Jun. 14, and Dec. 24. These squares will help us continue making the transition between the Piscean and Aquarian Ages. Indeed, we will feel this energy all throughout 2021.
A square in astrology creates tension; it’s considered a “disharmonious” aspect that often presents itself as an obstacle or a challenge. This square will be operational most of the year, so expect the unexpected! Saturn is moving though Aquarius (fixed air) for the next 2.5 years and he is a co-ruler of this sign along with Uranus who is moving through Taurus (fixed earth) until April of 2026.
Fixed signs offer stability so that things can take root… eventually growing into something completely new. When a planet is moving through a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), it provides great focus.
Saturn and Uranus are essentially diametrically opposed. Their synodic cycle (the relationship between any two planets) spins around the creation of new ideas, fresh circumstances, and innovations – often resulting from a crisis point. Saturn represents tradition, structure, law, rules, regulation, restrictions, and hard work. Uranus embodies freedom, eccentricity, innovation, sudden change, surprises, and miracles.
There are many myths that involve these two — usually in some kind of tussle. In mythology, Saturn – the lord of karma — is the son of Uranus (the sky god). The conflict embodied between these two, in terms of squaring energy, can create almost anything that the mind can conceive.
Take a look at what houses are ruled by Aquarius and Taurus in your natal chart. This is where you can “expect the unexpected” this year, particularly around those three dates when the square perfects.

This is a building year; a year to focus on anything you want to be, to do, or to have. It would be the perfect year to start regularly meditating, doing yoga, or any practice that facilitates focusing your thoughts and energy on what you want to create for yourself and the world.
