The Election: Saturn in Aquarius Decan 3

Saturn in Aquarius (Decan 3) Rising
Made during the day & hour of Saturn in his own sign, triplicity, & bounds. This gives him great marks in essential dignity. He rises on the Ascendant, making him the ruler of the chart.
Before he changes signs, Saturn’s doing important work in the final decan of Aquarius. He knows he must leave a situation behind him. This is a decan about endings, especially of a social nature. Saturn contemplates where responsibility lies. What is required of him? He may hesitate to leave the past behind, especially if he finds he has some duty or responsibility to the past.
First Quarter Moon in Taurus conjunct the North Node
The sharp First Quarter Moon, exalted in Taurus, is with the fated North Node of future growth. This gives a strong emphasis on our bodies, our embodied experience, our emotional needs, habits, and patterns. We are called to face a situation that is building with the first quarter Moon phase. Saturn represents the necessity to make changes and define boundaries in a situation that is coming to a head. Honor the needs of your Moon to lean into future growth.
Mercury in an Earth Trine to the Moon + Uranus
Luna’s next movements are to trine Mercury, then merge with innovative Uranus. These aspects help to brighten the mind, adding to the mental clarity of this blend as we navigate ideas, beliefs, and philosophies that we want to bring forward. This is more than just a mental pursuit, it’s one that we can navigate in our bodies with a felt sense of what does and doesn’t work for us.
Communicative Mercury forms a harmonious trine to unconventional Uranus. This lends itself to stimulating ideas that are inspired and unexpected, enhancing the mental strategy suggested by the 7 of Swords. It gives innovative thinking, quickness of mind, and incoming news of forward progress. As they’re both in Earth signs, along with the Moon, there is a certain groundedness and practicality that can help us make the important decisions that are called for by Saturn at this time.
Sun Trine Mars
The Sun in Aquarius is in a harmonious Air trine with Mars in Gemini. This brings in heat and energy, motivating us to advocate for our own needs and interests. It adds to the strong Air Element focus of this brew.
The Sun is also squaring the Lunar Nodes, said to be “at the bendings.” At the North bending, he encourages leaning into future growth and stepping outside of our comfort zones.
Mercury Square Chiron in Aries (with Jupiter)
Mercury in Capricorn is squaring Chiron in Aries, bringing in conversations and news about the wounds we carry. Grapple with and confront what is and isn’t yours to carry. This helps assist in the healing power of this blend. Along with the approaching Jupiter-Chiron conjunction in Aries, we are given a great opportunity to grow into ourselves and become our own best advocate.
