The Moon transits from Libra to Aquarius this week, making a stellium of six in Aquarius beginning Tuesday. For a configuration to be counted as major, it must contain an unusual constellation of planets/and or luminaries. Four planets in a single sign, for example, is not a very rare occurrence, but can be considered a stellium. A six stellar stellium, such as we are witness to this week, is very rare. This is a signal that the Aquarian Age has in fact begun. Next week, the Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Aquarius could add visionary satisfaction to the resulting negotiations and scientific achievements. Personal satisfaction is at a peak level, as the pandemic declines in force. Saturn in Aquarius with a square aspect to Uranus in Taurus this week, begins to define the rules for the new age. Saturn turns retro in May, as the square aspect to Uranus is again formed in June and at the end of December, when Saturn is direct and Uranus retro. Astrology could be regarded as more useful this season, pinpointing economic cycles and epidemics or outbreaks of violence, as social forces are recognized as in sync with planetary cycles.
