The current square of Saturn and Neptune in the zodiac, meaning they are ninety degrees apart in the sky, correlates interestingly to the spirit of these times.

The Saturn-Neptune square

Saturn entered into orb of a square to Neptune in November of last year and continues in that aspect through this coming November. It's been interesting to see how this is playing out and I have a few thoughts on the matter.

Saturn and Neptune couldn't be more different. Saturn rules substance. It is the most physical, material planet in our sky. Neptune is ethereal, formless and mysterious. Saturn is physical reality, while Neptune rules transcendent realms - the dream world, imagination, and spirit.

The best that can be said about Saturn-Neptune aspects is that under them it may be possible to make our dreams (Neptune) reality (Saturn). On the other hand, since Neptune most often dissolves whatever it touches, we may find some of the structures (Saturn) we have built over time begin to bend and break upon shaky ground.

It has been interesting to see how the Saturn-Neptune square has affected the political sphere in the past 9 months or so. The Republican presidential primary debates, beginning this past January, from the very outset lost all semblance of structure and formality (Saturn) and descended into chaos and confusion (Neptune). An electorate in which millions on both sides of the political spectrum became disenchanted and disillusioned (Neptune) with establishment candidates and establishment policies (Saturn) gave rise to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Delusional reactionaries on the right dreaming of returning to a fantasized (Neptune) 1950s era America where father knows best and everything is seen as good and white and Christian, and hopeful idealists on the left dreaming that an old radical socialist could actually win the presidency of the United States.

Thus disappointment and disillusionment (Neptune) with the status quo (Saturn) pervades the collective consciousness these days, not only here in America. The Brexit movement in the United Kingdom is also reflective, and out of that mass disillusionment, the square between Saturn and Neptune will pave the way for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction which will dominate the skies from late 2018 into 2020. We will see then, I think, two powerful but diametrically opposed forces at work. The corporate state (Saturn) will go overboard to crush and destroy (Pluto) dissent and civil disobedience, as authoritarianism (Saturn) reaches extremes (Pluto). It will be unable in the end, however, to stem the tide which will inevitably lead to the breakdown of the present order and a wholesale transformation to a new order. I truly believe that capitalism is now on course to destroy itself. The process will involve much that will be ugly and awful, and it won't be until after Pluto leaves Capricorn in 2024 that a new day will truly dawn in this world. Let us welcome system collapse (which to this observer will be the signature of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction), no matter where it takes us, for it must collapse if we are to survive on this planet of ours.

Well, Nancy, I think we are on the cusp of a collapse of the capitalist system, but it will play out over several years. We will be turning the corner toward a new and more equitable system around 2023 -2024 if I'm reading the stars right.
