Saturn Opposing Retrograde Uranus...

starts on July 16 (using a 1 degree orb), is exact on July 27 at 3.07am in Kilmore, leaves on August 5.  Saturn at 0 degrees and 25 minutes of Libra, retrograde Uranus at 0 degrees and 25 minutes of Aries.

This is last of a series of 5 oppositions between these two outer planets - yippee!  My last post on it is here.

The difference between the first four, and this last opposition, is that this time around it is happening in the cardinal signs which are much more energetic and likely to be experienced in an outer and more physical way than when they happened in the mutable signs of Virgo/Pisces.  There is an added element of instability since this opposition occurs at 0 degrees of Aries/Libra, which also activates the other outer planetary energies and aspects that are currently so prominent (Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, Pluto squaring this conjunction).

Saturn represents the tried, true and tested and is a conservative energy, whilst Uranus represents the need to break free, new technology, being eccentric and that lightning bolt out of the blue that shakes things up.  The opposition is a highly energetic aspect and tends to represent conflict, but new awareness, and action.

I tend to look at oppositions as a bit of a see-saw ride, it is a bit of a balancing act getting the ride to be stable.  In the case of this opposition it's a bit like Saturn is sitting on his end of the see-saw without moving an inch and is sitting very still, Uranus is sliding along his end of the see-saw relentlessly and is jumping up and down as well... destabilising the whole thing! (Jupiter is egging Uranus on too... !)

The trick to balancing these two energies is to let Uranus have a bit of a squirm, but with the wisdom and guidance of Saturn giving some boundaries.  Remember not to throw the baby out with the bathwater!

By looking at which houses this opposition falls in you will get a feel for what, or who, needs careful balancing.  As usual, also look to see which houses are ruled by Saturn (one with Capricorn on the cusp) and Uranus (one with Aquarius on the cusp) to get more detail.

If you have personal planets and/or points (especially in the very early degrees) of Aries and/or Libra, then you are likely to feel this energy as particularly powerful.
