For the latter half of 1999 and well into 2000, the planets Saturn and Uranus will be in square aspect to each other, creating a dynamic tension between these distinct?and at times conflicting?planetary archetypes. Before looking at how this problematic aspect manifests collectively, it is important to explore Saturn and Uranus separately.

Saturn represents those energies which define limitations, set boundaries, and provide structure. In its more positive manifestation, Saturn is responsible for the discipline, persistence, and maturation necessary for each of us to become independent, self-sufficient adults; it provides the scaffolding necessary to accomplish goals and to take on life?s challenges and stages.

However, collectively, we tend to accentuate Saturn?s more dubious traits?lifeless discipline, rigid codes of morality, and that which invokes fear and dread. We have all met this side of Saturn in its many incarnations?the stern taskmaster, the Catholic school nun or schoolmarm, the underpaid DMV worker at the end of the month, and, internally, as the unwavering Superego with strict definitions of right and wrong.

This side of Saturn is omnipresent in the sobering reality of the 9-to-5 work-a-day world and omnipotent in bureaucracy, corporate hierarchies, and HMO?s. If the Saturnian tendency becomes too great in the individual or collectively, it can manifest as dogmatic, stoic, unfeeling, and inflexible to change. An overly-developed Saturnian instinct allows one to cling to structure for the sake of security, yet one pays the dear price of abandoning life?s greater riches.
Uranus is very much distinct from the archetype of Saturn, if not its exact polar opposite. Uranus is the reformer, liberator, and catalyst of change. Uranus is the archetypal quality which breathes new life and vitality into current structures, often demanding sudden, drastic overhauls if its needs are not met.

Oriented toward the future, always seeking progress, and responsible for creative inspiration, Uranus is responsible for innovation, inventive breakthroughs and quantum leaps in collective and individual understanding and perception. Whereas Saturn rules the here and now, Uranus rules the distant horizon, the realm of possibility and potential?what could be.

Uranus is present in the inexhaustible curiosity of a precocious child, the electrifying performance of the sports star ?in the zone,? the indefatigable social activist, and the unkempt, alienated mad scientist. In its less-heroic and often vilified form, Uranus can manifest as an obstinate eccentricity or individualism, a pathological curiosity with the perverse and bizarre, and the urge to shock and surprise. An overdeveloped Uranus needs change for the sake of change, upsets structure at all costs, and abandons the past without weighing the cost-benefits of such actions.

Returning our attention to the current alignment, we see that the very different archetypal qualities of Saturn and Uranus are placed in a dynamic?often confrontational?setting.
