Long-Term Effects of Saturn's Opposition to Uranus

Keen Category: Astrology Advice

Planets Saturn and Uranus

Every month sees the Moon opposing the Sun in the zodiac. We call it a full Moon. The Moon is close to Earth and moves through the zodiac quite quickly. Some planets, however, are way out there and when they oppose each other, it takes quite a while for them to move on. For the past two years there has been an opposition between Saturn and the planet Uranus.

Saturn is the ruler of limitations. It is the last visible planet, but it is still quite far away. Saturn takes approximately 28 years to move around the zodiac, something the Moon often does in 28 days. Meanwhile, the planet Uranus is way out there. It takes 84 years to go around the zodiac one time. This planet rules sudden shocks and surprises. When these two are tense in the zodiac, limitations are challenged outright, but just as easily, other strictures on your behavior could be imposed without you even realizing that they are there until they are almost permanent.

The last time these two planets opposed each other was in the mid 1960s. The impact of this opposition runs deep, and so it is important to look at the zodiac signs these two are occupying in order to understand what type of changes are going on. Saturn is in Virgo, the zodiac sign of organizing information. The planet Uranus is currently in Pisces, the astrological center of sacrifice and mysticism. This opposition impacts each zodiac sign in a different manner. Read your sign below to understand the slow change that has been going on and will continuing for at least another year...

Aries March 21 – April 19

You are two years into a three-year challenge to everything you have learned. New technologies are forcing you to reinvent yourself. A learning opportunity can make you a lot of money if you are open to it. Find an expert in the field to study under and take great notes. Intern where the action is, if possible.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

Disruptions to your career path must be accepted. You can utilize this time anyway to make creative progress and developments toward what you bring to the table. By 2011 you will be leading the pack and making a name for yourself with a new body of work you fine-tune this year and next. You have a lot to offer and your time is going to arrive.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

Your home life and domestic situation that you once stressed about have eased; an obsession with making everything appear a certain way could prove to cause irrevocable tension between you and your life partner. Relaxation is hard to come by as everyday life is over-stimulating.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Aspiring to get out of the neighborhood and travel will be difficult. And especially considering how long it took you to get to where you are at, why would you want to get up and go? The inability to have your say these past few years has been especially frustrating, but by 2011 you will finally get to tell it like it is.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Limitations placed on your finances have been met with stringent demands from forces outside of your control. This is going to continue for another year, but you are gaining an immense self-discipline in knowing how to manage your money. Someone who agrees with your worldview might also stay in the picture.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

You are learning what it takes to make the most with what you have got, but the demands of an eccentric boss or partner weigh on you constantly. For another year, this tension will be around, but it will be eased as you come to appreciate someone who sees you for your unique attributes.

Libra September 23 – October 22

Your recent successes have been hard to enjoy because of a sporadic work schedule and some chaos in your ability to manage time and be organized. The light at the end of the tunnel is coming, though, as you will get rewarded for your commitments these past few years. Look for your name in lights by 2011.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

You are basking in a popularity that might be enjoyable if it would just stop running hot and cold. One night of non-stop tributes followed by a week of loneliness is making things too frenetic, no matter how much you enjoy the intensity. There is a creative solution and your inventiveness is operating at the highest level of your life.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

Your success and security have arrived. Contractual obligations or downright bad luck have placed you in a geographically undesirable place. It will be harder to take advantage of all the opportunities, and yet you are still succeeding despite this wet blanket cooling down the blazing triumph of your achievements.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

The slow climb toward success is continuing unabated. There is tension in your neighborhood, and gossip about friends and acquaintances will only slow you down more. The rest of this year and 2010 is a time period for you to simply "keep your eyes on the prize" and maintain a low profile until it is time to shine.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

You are still waiting for that one in a million shot to get rich quick or have it all made. While that would ordinarily seem so foolish, who can blame you when they look at what you see? It all seems so close. The problem is that you are betting on other people coming through for you, and you better start to look at how much these folks can really be trusted.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

The more you change, the more things stay the same. No matter how many ups and downs and transformations and returns you have volleyed through the past few years, things seem to be almost frozen in time. You feel like the same person no matter how inconsistent everything else is. This boredom might be motivating you to speed up a relationship that isn't fully formed.
