Push and Pull of Saturn opposite Uranus

I have a migraine today so am posting a copy from another astrologer....Steven Forest at www.forrestastrology.com

I will refer back to these points in the next few days.

Steve says:

"We are 3/5ths of the way through a pattern of five oppositions of Saturn and Uranus:

* on 11/04/08 at 19 Virgo (Saturn) -Pisces (Uranus)
* on 2/5/09 at 20 Virgo-Pisces
* on 09/15/09 at 25 Virgo-Pisces
* on 4/24/2010 at 29 Virgo-Pisces
* on 7/26/2010 at 1 Libra-Capricorn

Transiting Uranus galvanizes whatever planet or point it is aspecting, and whatever house it is passing through in your birthchart. It asks you to overhaul and transform these areas, particularly where you may have been clinging to traditions, habits, fears and restrictive conservatism about them. The more "trapped" you have felt here, the more acutely you may feel this Uranian call to progress and freedom.

To work well with these transits, you must use the Uranian virtue of being fully yourself--not someone else's idea of you, and not a living symbol of "the Revolution" at the expense of your own identity.

Transiting Saturn asks you for a realistic and objective assessment of what is and is not working about whatever planet or point it is aspecting, and about whatever house it is passing through in your birthchart. It asks you to use the Saturnian virtues of good reality-testing and shrewd, consistent effort to make a concrete, practical change of whatever isn't working for you.

Reflect on these oppositions, and remember you don't have to figure it out yesterday. Two more partile oppositions are still ahead. Don't stall in a way that could end up hurting you (too much Saturn). And don't rush blindly ahead (too much Uranus) without thinking things through about what structures you might want to keep or change (Saturn) rather than just tear down (Uranus).

The transiting Saturn-Uranus opposition is further affected by the action of transiting Pluto, which is in early Capricorn and in the process of squaring transiting Saturn three times. The first square occurred at 1 Libra on Nov. 15th. The second was on Jan. 31, 2010, at 4 Libra. The third is on Aug. 21, 2010 at 3 Libra.

Transiting Pluto tends to ask us, as a group, to become aware of the shadow side of the sign through which it's transiting. (It recently left Sagittarius, whose shadow sides include the potentials for religious fanaticism and self-righteousness, for unchecked, overreaching growth, expansion and greed, and for difficulty in limiting one's options, whether they're real or perceived. Can you see some parallels to recent world events?)

Capricorn's shadow sides include the potential for abuses by the patriarchal mindset and by authority in general, for overly- controlling behavior, and for narrow-minded focus on the goal and the bottom line regardless of what means are taken toward that end.

As a group, we are being asked to see how those shadow expressions of Capricorn can challenge the reality (Saturn) of how we build (Saturn) and negotiate (Libra) healthy relationships, fairness, equality, moderation and aesthetics (all Libra), and what the actual value of those things is in our lives. As individuals, that dynamic is operating in your life wherever the early degrees of Capricorn and Libra fall in your chart, and also where those degrees make aspects to the rest of your chart."
