May 15: TAURUS New Moon ‘Delivers’ URANUS into TAU: New & Liberated EarthBody Consciousness

13 May

It’s coming, dear Astro~News Reader:

MAY 15 / 16 are not only the most powerful days in MAY but probably in Spring – since they bring several major shifts at once:

  • The New Moon in TAU – where the MOON is the strongest – representing nourishing Mother Earth energy, and food for all senses!
  • Also on the same DAY (3 1/2 hrs later), URANUS enters TAU (until Nov 6, and eventually from March 6, 2019 on).
  • And MARS enters AQ – to square URANUS on MAY 16 (their square comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically, right after BOTH Planets having move into new signs, and MARS being in the sign URANUS rules!).

 

New EARTH Consciousness.
Wake UP, Earthlings, and Collaborate!

For starters, get unstuck, says URANUS in TAU, break free and move forward (MARS squaring URANUS from AQ – the Zodiac energy ruled by URANUS!):

This square energy is SO primed for breakthroughs into new freedom.

Can you feel it?
‘Something’s’ shaking things up where energy has been stuck and unmoving, perhaps where all too much patience and waiting have generated anger, or on the flip side where inner resistance to change can’t hold on any longer.

One of the catalysts for shifts can be a collaboration (MARS in AQ) after so much heavy lifting / plodding along / taking a lot on, under MARS in CAP (since mid March) which could have also led to conflict and arguments (MARS was in square with ARIES SUN and MERCURY).
But hey, maybe you used this energy to get stuff done – great!
And now the freedom!

For the  ‘beasts of burden’ / ‘work horses’ among us, MARS in AQ shows us that in a good(!) team or community, or even ‘just’ together with one compatible(!) friend / partner the energy moves much faster and more synergistic – from a place of group intelligence beyond the sum of the individuals.

Now, mind you, if not used consciously and if too much ego (I want what I want, says MARS) gets in the way there can be also clashes and collisions that can blow up under this MARS – URANUS energy (which comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically since BOTH Planets will have just moved into new signs).

 

Dramatic Lightning through the Clouds (Photographer unknown)

 

So let’s use the shake-up combo of MARS in AQ – URANUS in TAU for conscious highlighting (like a lighting flash) and liberation of stuck energy, maybe in old ‘fossilized’ spots in the body-mind, in memories and patterns, in loyalty to genetic blueprints of the ancestors, in primal fears, triggered by traumanic events or empathy for others’….

Point is, we don’t need to know what and where it is but invoke the cosmic spirit of the Freedom Warrior (UR – MARS) that shows up now to help us shift, and then do something different ,out of the blue, out of the ‘ordinary’, spontaneously, mix up our habits, experiment, follow synchronicity, get a taste of freedom which can have cathartic domino effects.
URANUS represents the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener and the ‘higher mind’.
Flashes of insight and realization are super heightened now. Don’t (dis)miss them!

And: Experimentation, no expectation!

Try things on, see what happens. Be with friends, random strangers, groups, communities (AQ) whom you wouldn’t have done anything with before or not in a long time. See where the spirit takes you.

The combo of MARS in AQ and URANUS in TAU can also show up as breakthroughs in science, relating to the Earth and our biosphere, and perhaps some wake-up calls for humanity yet also innovations (AQ) to help sustain the Earth (TAU and CAP – with SATURN and PLUTO).
More to come with URANUS in TAU over the next 7-8 years (yes, until 2025/26)!

 

All these liberating shake-ups and wake-ups – LIFE is NOW!
..making us aware of our precious human emBODYment.

What a gift on Mother’s Day!
Gratitude to our Mothers and Fore-Mothers, and to Mother Earth!

 

 

The TAURUS New Moon on May 15 delivers reNEWed and liberated EarthBody Consciousness!

Yes, that’s where it’s at. 
Late TAU has a VIRGO undertone, and calls us to realign with what matters most, starting with health and wellness in our own body and lifestyle, and on the land we’re looking after.
Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-ground wellness practice for starters, and to bring the EarthBody Consciousness right home!

That’s what I’ll do – going out with a dear friend on Wed to spend time in Nature, and get starter greens for the garden, and flowers for the balcony – yay!

 

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

 

The New Moon end of TAU lines up in Earth trine with LILITH / PLUTO retro in CAP: 
The Ancestors and the Ancient Earth call us to do sacred work. 
And yes, it’s about the Spirit and Soul in the work we do, not the ‘heavy lifting’.
And to let our body be freed from old stuck and heavy energies, and free for being Here-Now!
En-lightened Earth Bodies.

 

Mother Nature and our inner True Nature always show: There’s New Life! And it’s growing, abundantly! This is IT!
Life affirming alignment!

 

So, here’s the ‘birth chart’ of the TAURUS NEW MOON

which will be at 4:48 am PDT on May 15:

SO much in the EARTH Element now!

There’s the NEW MOON in late TAU, MERCURY in early TAU (since today May 13), and URANUS about to enter TAU – just 3 1/2 hrs after the New Moon! 
And in solid CAP Earth: SATURN retro, LILITH / PLUTO retro – in trine with the New Moon, and, at the very end of CAP: MARS (entering AQ the same evening, to almost immediately square with URANUS on May 16).

May we wake up in our Earth Body, and find common ground on this Earth we all share, sustained by the unfathomable Ground of Being!

If you’d like to check out the rather epic AstroNews article about URANUS entering TAU – Wake UP, Earthlings! you can find it here.

WATER, through JUPITER retro in SCO in friend-ly trine with NEPTUNE in PI (active from May to Aug, exact on May 25, and once again Aug 19) flushes SO much (JUPITER in SCO) that has come up these months, releases and renews – emotional / energetic ‘Spring Cleaning’.
So, let’s be in the flow, and let it go!

 

Be well, dear Reader, be in Nature, and in your Inner Nature!

URANUS in TAURUS (Starts May 15) – Wake UP, Earthlings!

12 May

Whoa – a huge shift comes with the TAURUS New Moon on May 15 (just 3 1/2 hrs after):

URANUS, Archetype of the Awakener & Paradigm Shifter changes Zodiac signs, from ARIES where it’s been since 2011(!) into TAURUS!
For the first ‘test run’ phase, that is, until Nov 6 when it retreats back into AR, before it goes from March 6, 2019 on fully into TAU (until 2025 / 26 – yep, 7 years!).

And what a BOOM effect on top of it: 
On the same day, MARS moves from CAP into AQ which URANUS rules, to go into square with MARS in the following night (May 16 at 12:04 am PDT).
Quite a cathartic and catalytic stress / tension release, to set FREE what’s been held in for long.

 

For starters, check out the URANUS into TAU 2018 chart:

  • You can see in it also that the URANUS shift happens just after the TAU New Moon!
  • MERCURY will have just passed URANUS too, on Sunday May 13, at the very end of ARIES – ‘catapulted’ into TAU by URANUS.
  • Of course the square from MARS entering AQ also on May 15 (where it will be for a long time this year (due to retro this Summer).
  • And LILITH / PLUTO (‘higher octave of MARS) close together – LILITH will pass PLUTO on May 18 (once every 10 years)! A powerful pointer to be naturally empowered.
  • So yeah, all in all a power house – primed for surprises and breakthroughs.

 

I call the AR – TAU cusp the ‘Settling Point’ in the Zodiac. Usually the fresh original ARIES start-up energy settles here, fresh shoots take roots, and we find our ground and comfort. 
Rather un-settling with URANUS appearing, squared by MARS, you bet.
Let’s be with the energy wisely and creatively rather than resisting. TAU is the expert in this, that’s why URANUS isn’t ‘well placed’ in TAU, or rather: rocks the boat to shake up what’s too fixed.


URANUS entering TAU squared by MARS shifting into AQ feels like a liberation from slavery – literally: Freedom from ownership.
Freedom from what uses up our time and resources (CAP) that can be repurposed much more fulfillingly…
Where have you enslaved yourself / let yourself be enslaved by something you own / that ‘owns’ and occupies you, your time, your energy / money / resources?
And how can a movement towards collaboration and community (MARS in AQ) propel us forward?!

 

So cool – just saw that on May 14 would be Che Guevara’s 90’s (only!) birthday.
He was born on May 14, 1928, and of course became super instrumental in the Cuban Revolution of 1959. Born revolutionary warrior – with URANUS in early ARIES on his AC, and JUPITER to follow.
It was so great to tune into the multi layered spirit of Cuba incl. the revolutionary one, on a 3-week journey through the land with a friend, in 2012 – we didn’t even know it was under Che’s URANUS Return…

I’ll post his chart and some notes on May 14.

 

Another birthday synchronicity:
When I googled Krishnamurti‘s quote (and book) Freedom from the Known (so URANIAN, in a spiritual and multi-dimensional sense) yesterday May 11, I found out it was his birthday! He was born with AQ Rising – ruled by URANUS. 
And yes, Freedom from the Known is also a big motto for URANUS in TAURUS.

 

URANUS in its 84-year cycle hasn’t been in TAU since 1934 – 1942.
Depression of the World economy and World War II (with territorialism blended with fascism as triggers) – turbulent time for the Earth and the People for sure! PLUTO was in CANCER and LEO (entered at the onset of the war – destructive imperialism).

And before, 1851 – 1851 – era of the Gold Rush, agricultural revolution, following the invention of the mechanical harvester, and even more so consolidation of the industrial era.

That was also the decade when Moby Dick, Uncle Tom’s Cabin (owning it was made illegal in the Southern States!) and Darwin’s Origin of Species were published.

Chances are, URANUS in TAU will have a paradigm shifting effect on the economy – it might even bring or at least spark the spirit of the 3rd Industrial (or rather: post-Industrial / post-Capitalist) Revolution that’s not based on owning (TAU) but on sharing in a network (AQ, ruled by URANUS). Driven by Millennials who, other than their post-War parents don’t put much value on ownership of prestige objects like cars that need to be maintained while ‘plugging up’ the Planet in so many ways. Access to networks (like car shares, co-working office spaces, and other co-ops) is where it’s at.
I.o.w., sharing and collaboration instead of owning is FREEDOM (URANUS).

The Sharing Economy in combination with the exponential digital revolution encourages for information to be freely given out – which disrupts trad. industries and equals the playing field (URANUS) – we all can ‘produce’ books and videos with minimal ‘start-up’ costs and zero marginal costs (doesn’t cost more to produce more).

URANUS energy can be wired, excited, but also anxious, nervous, and not calm and present as TAU would recommend. I.o.w., we really really need to GROUND all that electrical energy that’s been ‘downloaded’ even more so now.

URANUS in AR (since 2011 – actually started on the DAY of the shocking Fukushima catastrophe) has brought an acceleration of alarming shifts and wake-up calls, everything has been ‘speeding up’ – esp. through URANIAN technology which also led to lots of start-ups and entrepreneurial opportunities. Seemed like we had to be pro-active and assertive (AR, ruled by MARS)  to ride this wave, otherwise life and constant newness rushes by (but funny enough, there’s always more newness…) – thrilling? Stressful?
The FOMO phenomenon is here with us now through constant new (not necessary quality) thrills and options served up by the media that we can’t keep up with.
Huge contrast however when being away from the ‘grid’, ‘simply’ in Nature or present with what IS, present as YOU (the big gift or AR).

What stood out under URANUS in AR (2011 – 2018/19) was the 7 (SEVEN!)-fold cardinal (dynamic) Square (a challenging yet creative conflict) from URANUS in AR to PLUTO in CAP, from 2012 to 2015.

Yeah, indeed, 2012 was just the beginning of massive changes:
Inner and outer unsustainable control structures have spontaneously / shockingly / liberatingly broken open. A Revolution – Evolution.
So many of us (incl. myself) were going through massive changes of old worlds ‘dying’ yet being renovated and ‘upgraded’ for a new life that’s free from the past, and alive in the NOW!
A caterpillar – butterfly effect.

No such dramatic processes for URANUS in TAU astrologically scheduled as the square with PLUTO.

Yet immediately a jolting wake-up call, with MARS square URANUS, and also (widely) to the Nodal Axis The square to the North Node in LEO and South Node in AQ will be exact in Nov when URANUS is back on the cusp to AR and the North Node on the cusp from LEO to CAN but already noticeable this late Spring / Summer / early Fall, as in: Be Creative, own your Life! 

 

As URANUS in TAU takes the shifts from Spirit and Energy (fiery AR) into earthy Matter this sounds to me like:
Building the New and Sustaining.
A New Earth. A New Embodiment. A New Relationship to Nature.

 

 

On the other hand, with URANUS in TAU we’re probably also move into universal beyond global (TAU) consciousness – liberating in a spiritual sense (yet there’s another side to it too, driven by technology – see below).
The global consciousness through globalization took off under PLUTO in SAG (1995 – 2008), and now things are established (PLUTO in CAP since). Those global military-industrial hierarchies and Plutocracies (rulership / power of the wealthy) seem to be hard to change – like moving mountains (CAP).

Yet my vision is for these socio-economic structures to change from within because the status quo (TAU) isn’t sustainable, and WE the People become fed up (UR in TAU) enough and FREE to not buy into their values anymore, more excited to outgrow them, and build the new.

My hope is that URANUS in TAU in combination with PLUTO and SATURN in CAP (until end of 2020 / 2023) also brings freedom away from consumer mentality that all these industries feed (agricultural  industry, information / entertainment industry, health industry, construction industry, education industry… you name it!) and feed off… away from least resistance / most comfort mode (shadow of TAU: “Feed me and I’m happy.”), and towards more creativity / owning agency,  simplicity and quality consciousness (CAP) – less IS more.

 

In the worlds of food and money / economy (TAU domains), we’ll see the most obvious shifts – which have to do with a change in values and innovation.

Maybe traditional values go out of the window?
Or, with SATURN and PLUTO in CAP until 2020 / 2023, are being freed up from the old and stuffy world that keeps people ‘in their place’. Along with that, yet older Earth traditions that are also liberating can be reinvented and modernized.
Those of us who value good natural food and resources will innovate and support solutions that make the world a garden again.

 
When it comes to money, we’ll probably see a push towards a cashless society.
Plus, new (yet unknown) forms of exchange and of placing value on goods and services can open up innovative ways of speeding up transactions, along with even more economic networks. This can bring a boost to the economy – as long as people have work and aren’t replaced by automation.
Yet it makes us also even more dependent on the electronic grid.

More opportunities for innovative business ventures come with URANUS in TAU too.
Everyone can be an entrepreneur and inventor: Come up with something ingenious that has value (suggest it, make it desirable!) and put it on the market. Experiment online (low cost).
The whole thing can of course also create a chaotic ‘Gold Rush’ like energy in the world of business.

When it comes to our bodies, I believe URANUS in TAU, together with CHIRON in AR (almost same period, 2018 / 19 – 2026), will bring revolutionary research and innovation in the healing field, and for our bodies. Thinking of epigenetics, and stem cell therapy as a major breakthrough which could become more accessible.

 

A huge shadow comes with the virtual (URANUS) reality (TAU) emphasis, and innovations pushing more and more into this arena (because it ‘sells’ / addicts people – online / gaming is more exciting than ‘3-D / 4-D reality’).
Many people ‘dwell’ (TAU) in their devices (UR), and spend less time in Nature, with ‘real people’, and perhaps even fully connected with their bodies (TAU). Compounded with the exponentially growing  overwhelm with information and choices this all leads to collective ADD. Advertisers rival for our attention and constantly interrupt the flow, or even the just focused reading of an article. Instant (URANUS) gratification (TAU) is rewarded and pursued.
So, ironically, the ingenious Genie in the device is wreaking havoc in the brain (stem!) of the ‘user’.
More research about this phenomenon will come out and more cures for such a pandemics need to be found….The not-so-news will probably shock those who were oblivious or not wanting to pay attention to the wake-up calls under URANUS in AR, before the body (TAU) gets ‘wired’ and electrified (UR).

Prevention suggestion: Be ON the ground of Mother Earth and in Nature more often! You’re FREE to break away / take breaks from the shackles of your handheld!
Play, be creative, loving, and self expressive (LEO North Node), rather than watching everybody else’s ‘show’ and turn into a nobody (AQ South Node).

 

Well, and the ‘universal consciousness’ I talked about above could also have expressions such as:
“Planet Earth isn’t sustainable anymore in the long run. We need to explore extraterrestrial settling (TAU) options” – ‘Freedom from the Earth'(!?).
I heard scientists talk pretty detached about this – and then there’s Elon Musk’s spectacular SpaceX project with the Mars mission focus…. (interestingly, E.M. was born with MARS retro next to his karmic North Node in scientific AQ which will be squared by URANUS the ruler of AQ in the next few years…).

Just yesterday, I saw (ironically on FB) a post by a friend re: Terraforming Mars.
Weird stuff i.m.o. / common / uncommon sense: Why playing Nature on a different planet, rather than regenerating Planet Earth?
Just an alert – more of these phenomena might show up and intended to be ‘sold’ to us now, with URANUS in TAU, along the lines:
“Here’s a great solution to the food & water crisis: Let’s bio engineer / geo engineer until the cows come home… 😉 “
“Here’s an ingenious idea to solve the issue of Life on Earth…: Life OFF Earth….!”

 

Ok, ok, back to our Home Planet, since foremost, that’s where it’s at:
WAKE UP, EARTHLINGS!
Earth is our Mother.
A Renaissance of Earth Consciousness.

 


 

TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth and her Beauty and Bounty, and where we appreciate our precious human embodiment:
Earth my Body!
If you haven’t heard this song and seen this ever so moving video with Nicole Sangsuree yet please do – her legacy before she was killed by a car!

And clearly:
The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to the Earth.

The Spirit of URANUS in TAU can also bring a Renaissance of Back to Nature / incl. communal farming, as more and more people opt out of the status quo of nature congestion, and de-natured food, and want more freedom while working / living with, not at the expense of the Earth.

And the Earth itself might release lots of built-up stress and pressure.
The recent Kilauea quake and volcanic eruption is a precursor…
The Ancient, Sacred Earth showing her Power.

Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.
Freedom from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU), and Freedom for a new Earth Awareness.
We really can’t wait another decade or 5 to do anything about getting our act together (is also what SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a new Earth Awareness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect food, money / value exchange, and economy / ecology, and calls for innovative solutions in a volatile world.

 

Our connectedness with all of Earth’s Beings is being (re)awakened now (if it hasn’t already) – which spurs us into action and can shake others up too.
Perhaps to stand up, rise up, and speak up for those sentient Beings who can’t speak for themselves and need to be protected before it’s too late.

Loving this quote by Eckhart Tolle (from: A New Earth):
“Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.”
Speaks also to LILITH / PLUTO – being in our True Nature, as Nature, in Nature.

 

Where do you stand in this?
What’s new and freeing in your relationship to Mother Nature?
What’s shifting for you?

Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU – an awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical life changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a Uranian ‘kick in the butt’ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to our TAURUS House in the chart.

 

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our
Special Astro Parlour on WED May 16:
URANUS in TAURUS – Wake UP, Earthlings!

If you rather or additionally would like to come to a private zoom-in session for your URANUS in TAU Themes – let’s do that (at 11% discount off my reg. rates).

May it be both liberating and re-grounding for you!
