What trials and triumphs will Saturn bring to you, Aries? ( Dec. 17, 2020 – Mar. 7, 2023)

Saturn officially moved into water-bearer sign Aquarius on December 17, 2020. It will stay in Aquarius for the next two and a half years, specifically until March 7, 2023, encouraging people to build their own “foundation” (the foundation of their destiny that will last for about 30 years!).

By its very nature, Saturn is a planet that encourages growth, and by imposing trials and challenges onto people, it paves the way for said growth. Growth is the process of building a stronger foundation from the past, and it is only when we really have a previous foundation that we have achieved through hardship that we can set broader dreams and higher goals. In this sense, Saturn is also the planet that connects the past and the future.

In other words, what you struggled with in the past is connected in a straight line to the present and to the challenges of the future. This may include experiences that made you wonder, “Why do I have to suffer so much?”

Saturn teaches us how all of these experiences connect, and how we can use them to our advantage.

This is why we’ll be exploring the fate Saturn has given you in the following two chapters. What you have accomplished during the period of ② (which may be an accomplishment you are not even aware of) is the foundation for the present and future challenges of ①.

This means our story will be unpacked as follows:

(1) Challenges you will receive from Saturn for the period December 2020 to March 2023.
(2) What you have already accomplished under Saturn’s trials for the period of about three years from the end of 2017 to December 2020.

It is especially important to read (1) and (2) as a single story in your mind. Use (2) as a foundation and interpret it to read the challenges in (1). And if you are still enduring difficulties right now, it is very important to think of that suffering as still holding a connection to the future, even if you cannot yet see it.

(1) Challenges you will receive from Saturn for the period December 2020 to March 2023.

During the period from December 17, 2020 to March 2023, you are on a journey to see and understand the wider world. And this journey seems to have the potential to lead you to places beyond your current work and life, moving toward a larger destination than before (though you may not know where that is). This is also a time for you to take off into the big world and see new sights, especially building on what you have learned and worked on so far.

You’ve put in a lot of effort so far, and you’ve grown a lot because of it. That’s why you don’t want to be tied down to a narrow range of relationships or get caught up in the mess of hierarchical relationships. In some way, this is a bit of a rebellion against old traditions and values, or more positively, a desire to realize a new future in relationships — free of ties and power struggles.

For example, if you are working for a local company, you may feel constrained by the small size of the market and want to move towards a global business. Especially for those who have seen a lot of the good and bad in people and society, the transition during this period can be a big one. Some people may want to get out of the organization, lose their titles, and live a more natural life.
