The transit of Saturn over 27°Aquarius conjunct the astrogeographical resonance degree of Wellington between May 2022 and March 2023 can be expected as a period of stabilization of the country´s government, political institutions and independence.
But Saturn is more than mere stabilization of institutions: his transits indicate the need for reforms – with uprisings not excluded as the example of Saturn`s transit over Ukrainian capital Kiev during the Euromaidan Riots of 2013 shows.
The last Saturn conjunction occurred between December 2017 and October 2018 when Saturn moved over the 1°Capricorn resonance degree of New Zealand`s capital and government. The new government under Jacinda Ardern was elected and sworn in on October 26 2018 with Saturn moving direct at 24°Sagittarius. prime Minister Jacinda Ardern born 26 July 1980 is related to this “first degrees Capricorn topic of Wellington” through the Moon position in the first decade of this sign.

As Uranus is the sign ruler of Aquarius his transit should be optimally used to update dealing with technology, social and political institutions, globalization and climate change.
The tension and challenges that arise from this square transit of Uranus will be further intensified by a simultaneous square transit from Neptune between March 2025 and January 2028.
