Uranus, discovered in 1781, represents the unconventional. Who could argue with that when the planet, unlike all the others in our solar system, rotates on its side? In actuality, it represents much more than that. It represents liberation, looking at things from a different perspective, sudden change, individuality, inventiveness and originality (to name a few). It also can represent instability, rebellion, disruption, erratic action, anarchy, and displacement.
It’s important to understand this right now. The world seems to be primarily in chaos right now and there is truly a reason for it. some will argue that the Age of Aquarius hasn’t happened yet, but even if it hasn’t the chaos that’s being created in the shift that happens from one Age to another is reason enough to want to understand the energies that are causing the shake-up in our world.
Uranus is our wake-up call telling us it’s time to let go of the old, the known, and take a step into a new, unknown way of thinking, doing and being. Eeeek! Did I say “unknown”? Yes, I did. We’ve become too comfortable with how things are and when that happens stagnation can occur. Along comes Uranus, and the Age of Aquarius, to overthrown established attitudes and behaviors which have outlived their productivity and usefulness. We are reluctant to let go of the known, even though it no longer serves us. Uranus causes the chaos that shakes things up and causes us to let go.
As the “old” and the “new” clash for supremacy, chaos can ensue and we, sometimes motivated by the fear we feel of the change that’s coming, are forced to look at things from other perspectives; to consider possibilities that we haven’t considered up until now.
For the individual, if you know where your Uranus is placed in your natal chart and in what sign it’s placed, may find a great deal of information to help you through this time of transition. Be sure to check what house Aquarius occupies and any planets in that sign and also check your 11th house, the one that Uranus/Aquarius rules naturally. Valuable information that may additionally be of help could lie in these areas.
Uranus, eccentric planet of the solar system, calls to you to not be afraid but rather step boldly into the freedom from the known! It could beneficially change your life.
As I’ve always told you, New Moons are good times for new beginnings and this one is absolutely no exception. When this New Moon happens on Wednesday, April 26th at 8:16 a.m. EDT, it does so in the sign of Taurus – the natural ruler of the second house of money.
With the Sun and Moon both in Taurus, the energies are solid and practical. The Moon being Taurus allows us to gather in and conserve resources. It also allows us to apply common sense to all situations and problems. It is an energy that attracts wealth and the good things in life. With the Sun also placed here, how could you possibly let the opportunity pass you by to use these energies to manifest money, job, home, or even that special someone?
Tap into those energies that are determined and persistent, that are not easily thwarted. Along side of those are energies that are friendly, companionable, cheerful, persistent, and hopeful. Don’t allow yourself to fall prey to being reserved and secretive. Use the energies artfully and success can be easily attained.
Venus moves into Aries on Friday, April 28th, at 9:13 a.m. EDT bringing brilliant and exciting energy. It can cause some to be emotionally impulsive. Others may find that they love by sight and put prime importance on how someone looks. This causes people to choose with their head rather than their hearts.
This can be an excellent placement for those dedicated to achievement because they won’t be distracted by the typical pleasures, comforts, and social habits of Venus.
The basic energies are positive and cheerful with an ability to be actively creative in artistic and musical pursuits.
Mercury in Aries will turn direct, from its retrograde motion, on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 12:33 p.m. EDT.
Did you open yourself to the lessons and opportunities of Mercury in Aries retrograde? Well, now that it’s moving forward again, you have a chance to be very original in thought and ideas. You may still find you have trouble concentrating for long periods, but that may take you on intellectual adventures that produce some brilliant, exciting ideas! (Keep a pad and pencil handy to write them down.)
Don’t allow impatience to create problems for you. Instead, allow your natural wit and humor to emerge. Using them can ease any situation for everyone involved.
If you are affected by these energies, you may find yourself in a position of taking the lead in some group or project. This isn’t a time to be headstrong and willful. You truly do catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar. The fact that you can be very original, thinking quickly on your feet, will be a great aid to you.
That’s it for now. Wishing each of you a wonderful week! See you soon…
