Everything is a symbol. The planets and their interactions with each other represent the internal aspects of our being, as well as how those inner aspects play out in the external physical world.
Right now we are working to find new balance on the planet and in our lives -- and the tension of that endeavor is represented in the opposition between Saturn and Uranus.
Saturn represents the past, karma, and personal responsibility. Uranus represents the future, liberation, and independent thinking. In the tension of this opposition between the two, we are each striving to liberate ourselves from the restrictions of the past, while understanding that we are fully responsible for our lives then as now.
The signs each planet currently occupies are also symbolic. In the case of the Saturn-Uranus opposition, Saturn is in Virgo and Uranus is in Pisces.
Virgo represents analysis, organization, and the efforts we put into improving situations or structures. Pisces represents the spiritual perspective, the ability to surrender, and the trust in a universal plan. As we work with these two energies, we are focused on improving our human experience, while also developing an increased connection to our spiritual center.
