In February 2021 we have the 1st hit of the most important transit of the year: Saturn square Uranus.
Taurus Symbolism + Myth. The human connection to the constellation of Taurus is very old, harking back to the early bronze age. The sign of the Bull’s position in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere has been used by many ancient cultures for timekeeping to signal the original Spring Equinox. Spring is an equinox, and in 2021 falls on March 20, the same day as it did last year. The season then lasts for just over three months until June 21 this year. Related articles. Astrology Calendar. As your portal to the stars, this calendar provides all the major astrological aspects this year. Highlighting every time each star changes signs, as well as every planet moving in and out of retrograde, this astrology calendar is the most comprehensive overview you'll find online.
The transit will be within orb throughout the whole of the year. But what’s particularly interesting is that Saturn, the conservative, traditional and “by-the-book” planet is in Aquarius – the most progressive sign, and Uranus, the revolutionary, unique, “breaking the rules” is in Taurus – the most traditional sign.
The Saturn-Uranus square can bring us enormous friction, but also incredible opportunities for change and progress.
History will be made during the year-long Saturn-Uranus transit, so you want to pay special attention to the themes that play in your life at the time of the 1st conjunction, on February 17th, 2021 – because these themes are here to stay.
Another special theme in February is that we have an Aquarius stellium. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn (and for a few days) the Moon are all in Aquarius – we haven’t had so many planets in Aquarius since 1962!
And to make things even more ‘interesting’, all the planets in Aquarius are square their depositor, Uranus.
But let’s have a look at the most important transits of the month:
February 1st, 2021 – Sun Square Mars
On February 1st, 2021 the Sun (at 12° Aquarius) is square Mars (at 12° Taurus). This is the first (of many) squares in February between the planets in Aquarius and the planets in Taurus.
Sun square Mars is a prelude to this month’s Saturn-Uranus square. While the Saturn-Uranus square has a collective influence, Sun square Mars is very personal. Sun square Mars will initially trigger us, irritate us, frustrate us… so that we finally take action.
Mars is the first planet to go a full circle around the Sun (as seen from Earth). Before Mars, we can think about things, feel about things, dream about things… and do nothing at all.
But when Mars comes into play, there’s no more fooling around. Action means actively changing the status quo. It means going into the world, and making a difference. Any difference.
Many successful companies measure success based on the number of projects you initiate (or even the number of projects you fail).
That’s because they have realized that taking action is the very first prerequisite of success. Whatever you are called to do at the beginning of the month, just do it!
February 6th, 2021 – Venus Conjunct Saturn
On February 6th, 2021 – Venus is conjunct Saturn 5° Aquarius. Venus-Saturn transits are emotional reality checks. This is when we see things for what they really are, and for what they’re really worth.
Aquarius is the sign of friendships and groups of people, so Venus conjunct Saturn in Aquarius can bring us a reality check connected to our friendships and communities.
Reality checks might have a negative connotation, but they don’t have to be negative.
There’s a lot of love in Saturn’s maturity and responsible approach, and if we’re ready to act from our higher Venus (non-self-gratifying) Self, then Venus conjunct Saturn in Aquarius has a lot to give!
February 8th, 2021 – Sun Conjunct Mercury
On February 8th, 2021 Mercury retrograde is conjunct the Sun at 20° Aquarius.
Whenever Mercury Retrograde makes a conjunction to the Sun, a new Mercury cycle begins. Just like the Moon has cycles, Mercury has cycles, too.
A “New Mercury” cycle is a great time to initiate a project connected to Mercury themes: communication, mindset, trade, marketing, blogging etc.
February 11th, 2021 – New Moon In Aquarius
On February 11th, 2021 we have a New Moon at 23° Aquarius. With a record of 6 planets in Aquarius, this New Moon is as Aquarius as you can get!
If you’re still unsure about the Age of Aquarius agenda or how this energy will influence you, now you will find out.
A New Moon is a new beginning, and a New Moon with 6 planets in Aquarius means a BIG Aquarius new beginning, whatever that means for you (according to where the New Moon falls in your natal chart).
February 11th-15th, 2021 – Venus Conjunct Mercury And Jupiter In Aquarius
On February 11th, 2021 Venus is conjunct Jupiter at 12° Aquarius. The next day, on February 13th, 2021 Mercury Retrograde is conjunct Venus at 14° Aquarius, and on February 15th, 2021 Mercury Retrograde conjunct Jupiter at 13° Aquarius.
Triple conjunctions are pretty rare, and the triple conjunction between Venus, Jupiter and Mercury in Aquarius is one to look forward to. As a general rule, Venus-Jupiter conjunctions are one of those few 5-star transits all astrologers agree that are 5-star transits!
Mercury retrograde will only make the conjunction even more potent, and give it even more meaning and depth.
If you have planets or angles between 12-14° in Aquarius – or in the other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio – this triple conjunction will speak to you directly.
February 17th, 2021 – Saturn Square Uranus
On February 17th, 2021, Saturn (at 7° Aquarius) is square Uranus (7° Taurus); this is the first ‘hit’ of what is the most important transit of the year.
Whatever themes or projects you start to develop around the date of this first direct square, will be part of your life throughout 2021. Unsure what to expect? Pay attention to the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your chart.
February 18th, 2021 – Sun Enters Pisces
On February 18th, 2021 Sun enters the last sign of the zodiac. Happy birthday to all Pisces out there!
Sun’s transit into Pisces is the “culmination” of the yearly astrological cycle. This is the time to complete whatever we have started at the time of the Spring Equinox last year.
No matter what your Sun sign is, take your time to meditate, contemplate and ponder things, and prioritize them for the next cycle. Slow down and reflect on what this astrological cycle has meant for you, and what you are moving towards or inviting in the next Sun cycle.
February 19th, 2021 – Venus Square Mars
Speed of retrograde planets in vedic astrology. On February 19th, 2021 Venus (at 23° Aquarius) squares Mars (at 23° Taurus). Venus and Mars are the eternal lovers who are always chasing and seducing each other.
Squares bring friction, and in the case of Venus and Mars, these “frictions” are in the sphere of relationships and romance. Of course, when we talk about Venus and Mars, “friction” usually translates into passion… but at times this can also lead to irritation and emotional drama.
Ultimately, Venus square Mars is an invitation to go (Mars) for what you want (Venus), so take this opportunity to take action that is aligned with your heart’s desires.
February 20th, 2021 – Mercury Goes Direct
On February 20th, 2021 Mercury goes direct at 11° Aquarius. This was an ‘interesting’ Mercury retrograde to say the least.
Mercury retrograde was engaged in a triple conjunction with Venus and Jupiter so there are so many stories the planets in Aquarius had told us… and now that Mercury goes direct, we will gain even more clarity about this new Aquarius chapter of our lives.
February 25th, 2021 – Venus Enters Pisces
On February 25th, 2021, Venus enters Pisces. Venus is exalted in Pisces, which means that is in this watery placement where she is able to express herself at her best.
In the following weeks, you will be more receptive and intuitive than usual, and will relate deeply to love, art, poetry, music – and everything that is beautiful.
February 27th, 2021 – Full Moon In Virgo
On February 27th, 2021 we have a Full Moon at 8° Virgo. This is one of the more positive Full Moons of the year, because it is trine Uranus and opposite Venus.
Whatever seed you’ve planted at the time of the New Moon, will bloom into a beautiful flower.

Spring Equinox 2021 Astrology Moonarchaeoastronomy.com's definition of this field: The contemporary scientific study and theorization of surviving memorials constructed prior to telescopes by students of the night skies planet-wide. Such memorials might include writings and symbols engraved in stone or primitive megalithic alignments for observing and celebrating Mother Earth's seasonal rhythms. Intercontinentally, ancient seamen and expert navigators curated databases aware of equinox, solstice and cross-quarter moments. This field interprets how ancients grasped:

Spring Equinox 2021 Astrology Compatibilitythe Sun, stars and constellations with the placement or carving of paired gnomon and target alignments,
B—comets, rhythms of the 5 visible planets, lunar eclipses, phases and standstills,

a planetary conjunction, a supernova, an asteroid, a meteor or an unidentifiable object.
Earth's annual orbit is The Master Clock because the common yardstick of our lives is the year. Years are divided by the seasons just as calendars are segmented by months. Mechanical and digital timepieces measure intervals that split into hours, minutes and seconds each spin of our planet on its axis. Yet, it is the earth's regular, rhythmic loop around the sun that standardizes our timeframe of reference, regardless of geographic distances separating us from our acquaintances or generational distances separating us from our ancestors.
Our planet moves around the sun in an elliptical circuit deviating less than a second from one year to the next. Together we proceed through 8 significant, yet invisible, thresholds within each orbit. These spatial milestones mark the beginning, midpoint and end of each of our seasons. Equinoxes, Solstices and Cross Quarters are moments shared planet-wide, defined by the earth's tilt and the sun's position on The Ecliptic along 45° arcs.
To ancient civilizations fascinated and entertained by the cyclical motion of the heavens, the ability to fix these cusps just to the nearest day was highly-prized, even sacred knowledge. With modern measurements and calculators much better accuracy is possible for determining these moments.
This Grand Octal in the sky is largely ignored by most modern societies. Equinoxes and Solstices have become little more than footnote mentions on occasional weather reports. Cross Quarters are all but forgotten, in spite of having been observed and celebrated for centuries by Celtic people. Archaeoastronomy.com revives a tradition of marking the eight primary seasonal divisions within our common year. See time tables for our planet's orbital milestones.
Archaeoastronomy's goal is to understand how skywatchers of the past fashioned and refined systems for regulating their primitive calendars and for memorializing celestial events, both cyclical and unique. Often they relied on sunlight and shadow plays striking and passing across targets and designs aligned with the Grand Octal. Sometimes the celestial cycles of the moon, Venus and Mars captivated their attention, too. However, knowing seasonal durations and transitions was vital to success in hunting migratory prey, planting crops and harvesting them. Archaeoastronomy draws on several scientific disciplines, primarily astronomy, archaeology, anthropology, psychology and epigraphy, the decoding of ancient inscriptions.
For the fundamental orbital mechanics that allow Earth to experience the seasons it does, see time tablesseasons reason.
Astrology, scorned by today's technology-driven science, was integral to humankind centuries ago. Certainly, for research to yield credible results, the modern scientific method is essential. Nonetheless, myth was as dominant in ancient times as mindless mass media is now. Aren't both merely comfortable proxies for what's real?
To diminish the contributions of illuminated minds of the past who shared neither today's tools nor perspectives is to exhibit an arrogant, technocentric bias. Those authorities who tend to devalue legacy historical perspectives are only stoking the fires for the inevitable cremation of their own triumphs by a revisionist generation, of greater wisdom and superior perspective, in the future.
