Transiting SATURN 2023 Start in Aquarius sign

Saturn opens 2023 transiting in Aquarius, then it moves into Pisces on March 7; it is retrograde in Pisces from June 17 until November 4.  

As the co-ruler of Aquarius with Uranus, Saturn in Aquarius is a placement of practical realism and moving forward into the future from a position of experience, strength, stamina, discipline, commitment, and control.

It is reasoning, rational, humanitarian, scientific, inventive, technology-oriented, and focused on goals, the future, needs, and progress.  From experience, you know who and what you can rely on for support, encouragement, help, advice, and friendship.  Human rights, groups, and your personal connections are an important feature of Saturn in Aquarius because that is what gives impetus to Saturn in Aquarius’ ideas, idealism, discoveries, and inventions.  
Likewise, you need to look at the ideas, opinions, inventions, and discoveries of others so you can make intelligent and informed decisions instead of making decisions from a narrowly-defined and crystallized point of view.  Joyce Levine in her book Breakthrough Astrology describes it as needing to “Let go of believing you have the corner on truth.”  The Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) and the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) tend to be more comfortable with Saturn in Aquarius because they are more attuned to the mentality of the placement which is curious, adventurous, outgoing, and social as it shares and communicates ideas.  

The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) may be frustrated and especially challenged by Saturn in Aquarius because they tend to resist change and want to maintain a status quo with which they are familiar and quite content.  New rules, parameters, and ways of doing things challenges their sense of security and importance.  Note that Leos and Aquarians get the mixed effect of being hesitant to change then later embracing it as they see a positive pathway forward for progress, problem-solving, and the “greater good.”

On March 7, 2023, Saturn moves into Pisces where it will create structures and boundaries on which to hang high ideals and Universal humanitarian causes because Pluto in Uranus’ sign is going to require them as it relentlessly demands change and reform.  Positively, Saturn in Pisces is deeply caring, intuitive, and creative/artistic with a focus on correct form.  However, there are a lot of things linked to Pisces that Saturn can flatly say “no” to and reject – lack of self-discipline, lack of accountability, fake news and propaganda, victimization of others, discrimination against minorities and women, and/or addictions (that make you a victim – drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, etc) to name just a few.  When the reality of Saturn sets in, you will clearly see that you really are not living in Fantasyland and that real life is not like playing a video game.  

Saturn in Pisces can give you the will and determination to take responsibility for and control of your life and do something positive and constructive with it that will make you and those who love and care about you proud and happy.  Negatively, Saturn in Pisces is linked to lack of emotion and caring, lack of boundaries or limits, disrespect for rules and laws, having no coping mechanisms except to withdraw or retreat, blaming others when things go wrong, lack of confidence, deep-rooted anxiety and sense of guilt over situations that may or may not have been your fault, and/or a general negative outlook.  Simply letting go of the notion that everything that happens is your fault will take you halfway to making Saturn in Pisces a positive time.  

Saturn in Pisces favors the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and the Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) because they understand and accept practical realities and considerations that belong to Saturn.  The Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) may find Saturn in Pisces stressful because they are changeable and may lack the stamina to stay with needed changes until they have had time to make a difference.  Pisces and Virgo get the mixed effect, but the overall effect can be positive with patience and supportive loved ones.
