Wake UP, Earthlings & EmBODY Freedom! URANUS enters TAURUS (March 6, 2019 – Apr 26, 2026!)

3 Mar

Dear Astro Friends,

Whoa!

Look what the PISCES New Moon on MARCH 6 (see chart below) helps to deliver:

Just 7 1/2 hrs before the exact New Moon, URANUS, Archetype of the Awakener & Paradigm Shifter changes Zodiac signs, from ARIES where it’s been since 2011(!) into TAURUS!
Until Apr 26, 2026 (YES, for almost 7 years) that-IS!

(A first ‘teaser’ phase for URANUS on the cusp into TAURUS already happened last May 15 – Nov 6 when URANUS retreated back into ARIES over the Winter).

Quite a cathartic and catalytic shift, helping us to set FREE what’s been held in / back for long:

  • Get UN-stuck & UN-settled!
  • Get UN-attached from what has ‘owned you’!
  • Set yourself FREE from stagnation, inertia, conventions, comfort traps, persistent habits that might have turned into addictions even!
  • Get FREE from fixations, and resistance-to-change.
  • Be fresh and re-invent yourself!
  • Disrupt too slow-moving processes / holding back, and surprise yourself with experimentation!

 

URANUS in TAURUS can also feel like: Freedom from ownership.

Freedom from anything that has kept us hostage, by using up our Time, Energy, and Resources (CAP) – which all can be re-purposed much better and with more enjoyment (TAU).

  • Where have you enslaved yourself / let yourself be enslaved by something you own / that ‘owns’ and occupies you, your Time, your Energy / Money / Resources?
  • What’s ready to be freed-up now?

EmBODY Freedom!

 

On a shared experience with Humanity and all sentient Beings,

TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth and her Beauty and Bounty, and with TAURUS we appreciate our precious human EmBodyment: “Earth My Body!”

WAKE UP, Earthling!

Earth is our Mother.

The Earth doesn’t belong to us. We belong to the Earth.

 

Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.

Waking UP from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU) and into a new and acute Earth Awareness.

We really can’t wait another decade or more to get our act together as responsible stewards of the Earth (is also what SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a New EARTH Consciousness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect Food (incl. more scientific evidence about how it affects our Body), Money / Value Exchange, and Economy / Ecology, and calls for liberating, innovative solutions in a volatile World.

  • Where do you stand in this?
  • What’s new and exciting in your relationship to Mother Nature?
  • What are your TAUREAN liberating paradigm shifts in action?
  • And how are you actually EmBODYing Freedom?

 

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 the TAURUS House in our personal Birth Chart.

 

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our

Special ASTRO Activation PARLOUR:

URANUS Enters TAURUS –

UN-Stuck – EmBODY Freedom!

3 Groups to Choose from:
THU March 7
4:07 – 6:07 PM PST – afternoon group
7:07 – 9:07 PM PST – evening group
MON March 11
7:11 – 9:11 PM

 

 

This much for the short version of the URANUS into TAURUS post.

 

For the in-depth version, read ON:

To start with, here’s a sneak preview of the PISCES New Moon chart:

 

 

  • You can see that the URANUS shift happens on the TAU New Moon day (URANUS at 0°00′ TAU)! It’ll have moved over the ‘Settling Point’.

 

  • The New MOON in mid-PI comes with NEPTUNE – seed for a new multi-D Consciousness….? ALL is inter-connected, and vibrational. Tuning into ease and flow… supporting new Freedom from all things sticky, stuck, and attached.

 

  • MERCURY, freshly retro (starting the day before, March 5, see blog post) at the very end of PI is super-close to CHIRON just freshly over in ARIES (since Feb 18 – blog post here) on the ‘Emergence Point’ / Spring Equinox Point.
    RE-connecting & being in flow while showing up  freshly & authentically is good Medicine.

 

  • SATURN in CAP (Dec 2017 – Dec 2020) almost links up this Spring with PLUTO – their exact conjunction will be on Jan 12, 2020. The Lunar South Node in CAP meets (in retro motion) PLUTO end of March and SATURN in June. Along the lines of the CAP New Moon PSE on Jan 5:
    Let the Old Empire Expire! What are the ‘Empires’ that you’ve bought into? 
    And: Don’t do things the hard way… URANUS the liberator in TAU will help – Freedom through Joy!
    The CAP concentration is balanced by the Lunar North Node in CAN: Find your way Home!

 

  • JUPITER now in the last part of SAG (double SAG, close to the Galactic Centre) is slowing down its journey / turning stationary to go retro on Apr 10 – Wisdom from within on the Path of the Heart… Sharing our Gifts generously makes us feel abundant.

 

  • So yeah, all in all quite a unique chart – 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. 

It can appear rather un-settling with URANUS though…
Let’s move with the energy freely and creatively rather than resisting. TAU is the expert in this, that’s why URANUS isn’t ‘well placed’ in TAU. Well, actually: URANUS rocks the boat to shake up what’s too fixed.

When I googled Krishnamurti‘s quote (and book) Freedom from the Known (so URANIAN, in a spiritual and multi-dimensional sense) I found out he was born with TAU SUN and AQ Rising – ruled by URANUS. 
And yes, Freedom from the Known is also a big motto for URANUS in TAURUS.

 

Full Circle URANUS in TAURUS (every 84 years) –
3rd Industrial Revolution?

 

URANUS in its 84-year cycle hasn’t been in TAURUS 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 – like: catalyze 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 traditional 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).

 

Grounding the Electrical & Liberating Energy 

 

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 rushed by (producing F.O.M.O. effects – and of course, there’s always more newness…) – has it been thrilling for you? Or rather stressful?

Huge contrasts happen however when we’re away from the ‘grid’, ‘simply’ in Nature or present with what IS, present as the Self (the big gift or AR).

What stood out under URANUS in ARIES (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 ways ‘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.

 

With URANUS in TAU taking the shifts from Spirit and Energy (fiery AR) into earthy Matter this sounds to me also 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 can 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 structures are established (PLUTO in CAP since). Those global military-industrial hierarchies and Plutocracies (meaning literally: the rulership / power of the wealthy) seem to be hard to change – like moving mountains (CAP).

Yet my vision is that these socio-economic structures will ‘organically’ change 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) brings Freedom from consumer mentality which all these industries (agricultural  industry, information / entertainment industry, health / pharma industry, construction industry, education industry… you name it!) feed and feed off from.


Freedom from a modus of least resistance / most comfort (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?

And, with SATURN and PLUTO in CAP until 2020 / 2023, the URANIAN ‘Zeitgeist’ brings Freedom from the old and stuffy world that keeps people ‘in their place’.
Yet older Earth values and traditions that are more 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 / suggests value (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 – well, already under way, esp. in real estate (very TAUREAN). Wall St. Bull on steroids?

When it comes to our bodies, I believe URANUS in TAU, together with CHIRON in AR (almost same period, 2018/19 – 2026/27), will bring revolutionary research and innovation in the healing field, and for our bodies, food, and nutrition.
E.g. epigenetics research; stem cell therapy as a major breakthrough that could become more broadly available (URANUS shows where what’s been ‘owned’ by the ‘elite’ can be accessed by humanity).

 

Shadows of URANUS in TAURUS

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 scientific (URANUS) research about this phenomenon will come out, and more cures for such a pandemic need to be found….The not-so-news will probably shock those who were oblivious or ‘snoozing’ the wake-up calls under URANUS in AR – and realize how much the body (TAU) is getting ‘wired’ and electrified (UR).

Prevention / Astro Medicine suggestions:

  • 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!
  • Don’t feed the energy of the Old Plutocratic CAPitalist Empire (PLUTO / SATURN / Lunar South Node in CAP), and feed your true needs (North Node in CAN) instead.

 

Well, and the ‘universal consciousness’ I talked about could also have expressions such as:
“Planet Earth isn’t sustainable anymore in the long run. We need to explore taking the Space Age (URANUS) into extraterrestrial settling (TAU) – ‘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…).

A while ago, 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 Kilauea quake and volcanic eruption in May 2018, just before URANUS entered TAU for the first time was a precursor… see the blog post: 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 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.”
Being Awake 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.

‘Stormy’ URANUS in late ARIES goes direct on Jan 6: Awake and Present in the NOW.

3 Jan

Prometheus NYC

 

The New Year starts with URANian Fireworks!

Prepared by MARS having entered ARIES on DEC 31 / JAN 1…
…and on the day of / after the New MOON / Partial Solar Release Eclipse in CAP on JAN 5 / 6, URANUS goes from retro (since AUG 7, 2018) direct / forward again, on JAN 6

URANUS has been in ‘turnaround storm’ already since round the Winter Solstice – have you noticed?
When that happens, the Archetype becomes a focal point.

URANUS is the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener, bringing ‘Freedom from the Known’, or simply ‘Freedom that has no Opposite’.

‘Wild Card’ URANUS in late ARIES forms a sharp cardinal T-Square with the karmic Nodal Axis, presently in late CAP (South Node) to late CAN (North Node).

Liberation, to be authentic and free, as in:
Freedom from old burdensome heavy, taxing, systemic fear and control structures (CAP South Node, close to PLUTO) which we might have even internalized.
Freedom for being true to ourselves, taking care of our needs, being gentle, compassionate, and playfully-creative (CAN North Node) rather than productivity driven and always running out of time (CAP South Node).

Even and especially a Freedom beyond ‘from’ or ‘for’ – which is still conditional. Love this pointer by J. Krishnamurti suggesting, true Freedom is Freedom without an opposite.

With URANUS changing direction, there’s a climate of wake-up calls, unpredictability, surprises, even shocks, paradigm shifts, and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The URANian ‘station’ and activation of its Archetype is in effect and noticeable all through JAN, activating both Eclipses on JAN 5 / 6 and JAN 20 / 21.
Re-invent yourself!
Awaken from a CAP mode of being slave to a system that eats up our time and energy, and into full-on Presence with what IS & Presence in the NOW.

URANUS is also related to erratic weather patterns, and shows when all kinds of systems are ‘out of whack’. Presently as I’m writing in my cozy home there’s a wild and intense rain storm going on outside.

 

RETRO FREE Phase!

Once URANUS goes out of retro (on JAN 6) there will be a phase without a major Planet retrograde until early MARCH (when MERCURY goes retro again) – woohoo!
A good time to start the year with outer manifestations which can accelerate quite magically these days (propelled by MARS and URANUS in ARIES).

 

URANUS will be met by MARS (every 2 years) on FEB 12 at the very end of ARIES, while CHIRON will enter ARIES on FEB 18.
Early / mid FEB can be full of erratic, rebellious, revolutionary, accelerated energy, yet also prone to momentum for Freedom. Take it easy on your nervous system, and on technology.
Channel the energy into stepping into action with something you might have had on your back burner – just do it, and give yourself permission for a liberating breakthrough. 

 

URANUS is one of the big astrological NEWS MAKERS of 2019:

On MARCH 6, URANUS will fully enter TAURUS (until 2025 / 26).
It already temporarily already ‘tried on’ TAURUS from MAY 15 – NOV 6, 2018 – see blog post Wake Up, Earthlings!
Earth Changes?

Changes in the Economy? In the monetary system?
Chances are, yes and yes and yes, and more…

And with URANUS, it’s always about expect the unexpected.

So we definitely hear more about URANUS mid-FEB and from MARCH on.
Stay tuned.

 

Check out the SUN, MOON, and Planets in Motion 2019 Overview that I posted also today – a neat reference list with URANUS and all the other ‘Cosmic Players’.
And join our 2019 Astro New Year’s Parlour on Jan 9, if you’d like to co-explore your trends in a group of like-spirited stargazers!

 

Wishing you an exciting Start into 2019!

Winter SoUlstice Full Moon (Dec 22, 2018) in CANCER – CAP: Home is where the Heart of Hearts is…

21 Dec

Happy Winter SoUlstice Full Moon,

dear Reader in the Astro~News Tribe!

What a rare occurrence this year, as only 17 hrs after Winter Solstice, LUNA shows her fullness just after entering her Cancerian home abode. 
The Winter Solstice SUN is met by the Summer Solstice MOON!

 

At this WINTER SOLSTICE Day, the waxing MOON is still in GEM, and the Solstice Night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after the Full Moon).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child (CANCER), and focusing on priorities and purpose / being the Elder (CAP).


Which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square): SoUlutions come from surrendering to the healing quality of unity and connection. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Tall Tree Time – Nourished by the Waters of Life…. Photo by Melanie, Winter SoUlstice 2018

 

What nurtures us? asks the CANCER Full Moon…
How do we nurture Ourselves, our Children, our Inner Child, our Family / Tribe?
How do we feel and give a sense of Belonging?
Where’s HOME?

Nurturing young and old through the COLD, finding emotional and physical comfort and resources is a big deal in Northern lands – even though we’re just coming through the shortest days of the year, Winter  & CAPRICORN has only just begun, today Dec 21.

How do the contrasting themes of the warm, cuddly, and caring CANCER and rock-solid CAPRICORN energies (which you can see in the chart below) balance and complement?

 

The Winter Solstice Sun initiates CAPRICORN where SATURN, PLUTO, and the Lunar South Node sit these days / years:

 

  • SATURN, the Ruler of CAP – for a year now in CAP (since Dec 20, 2017 and dwelling in the mountainous region of CAP until Dec 17, 2020)!
    Here’s the blog article for this momentous move a year ago – maybe time for a review of the first year?
    SATURN in CAP brings rewarding incentives for us to ‘step up’ and be / do what we’re best at.
    No need to waste our time and energy on what’s futile and not ‘the real thing’. It’s Your Time and Your Life.
    No need to feel guilty, nor to judge what we don’t want to see, rather to move on / up, and model the Best and the Change (PLUTO).

 

  • PLUTO is in CAP for the long haul, until 2023.
    To make sure CAP goes through its deep foundational change and Evolution. I.o.w., for humanity to be done with wasteful, abusive, irresponsible, immature behaviour.
    So much time and energy is invested in sustaining a dinosaur system. We need to step up to the plate, live more simply (doesn’t mean deprivation) and sustainably, with quality focus instead of quantity (yet never-enough).
    What helps is clear noticing what / which (perhaps conditioned) patterns drain our energy, where energy comes from in contrast, and following that trail.

 

Here’s the full ‘Birth Chart’ of the Winter Solstice Full Moon!

Yes, a Full Moon is like a birthing or harvest of what comes to fruition – whether it’s been planted / sown under the previous New Moon, or many Moons ago.

The Full Moon in CANCER – CAP will be exact at 9:49 am PST tomorrow Dec 22.

 

 

Here ‘she’ is! The MOON will enter her CANCER abode at 8:28 am PST, just 80 min before the Full Moon at 9:49 am PST on the first degrees (0°49′) of CAN – CAP.

The MOON and the Lunar North Node surround and embrace CANCER – a well-needed and supported Zodiac energy nowadays.
The Lunar Nodes shifted into CAP – CAN on Nov 16 where they’ll be until June 5, 2020 (here’s the blog post for this Nodal energy phase).


Inviting us to lead from Cancerian warmth, care, nurturance, playfulness, creativity, drop heavy Capricornian burdens, ‘shoulds’, conditioning, fears, restrictions, depression, judgment, and not feed the CAP shadow of unqualified leadership and tyrannical structures that eat up our time and energy.
Rather to go where joy and playful timelessness are, and to create and raise vibrations from there. More energy freed up to create the change we do want to see and that sustains us.

 

For the CANCER – CAPRICORN Solstice / Christmas Full Moon in the signs of the Lunar Nodes that means (and is also a prelude to the upcoming Solar and Lunar Eclipses in CAP – CAN in 2019):

  • It’s not about ‘production’ and status for the Holidays (yep, pretty clear how that can drain our time, energy, and money…), rather about Heart connections, home, and belonging.
  • HOME is where the Heart of Hearts is…. a place we just love and where we feel welcomed, and a spiritual place that invites us unconditionally to come home to, at Christmas and any timeless time.
  • CANCER & CAP bring Elders and Children and anybody in-between together (rather than a separation and segregation that’s so common – and also costly – in modern society). 
  • How do traditions (CAP) feed our needs, and make us feel we belong (CANCER)?
  • The Summer Solstice GEM – CAN cusp of the FULL MOON is the ‘Nesting Point’ as I call it. Having a nurturing nest to come back to (CAN MOON) helps us with having energy to do important work in the world (CAP SUN).

 

 

Let’s take a look at the SABIAN SYMBOLS

…for the MOON and SUN at the Summer and Winter Solstice Points!

 

The Full MOON will be at 0°49′ CANCER.

1° CANCER:

 

Mexican Moon Boat(s) – Photo by Melanie, Dec 2018

 

“ON A SHIP THE SAILORS LOWER AN OLD FLAG AND RAISE A NEW ONE.

KEYNOTE: A radical change of allegiance exteriorized in a symbolical act: A point of no return.

We have now reached a square (go-degree angle) to the beginning of the cyclic process. This is a moment of crisis, a sharp turning point. In the zodiacal cycle, at the Summer Solstice the northward motion of the Sun (in “decimation”) stops; the Sun rises and sets as far north of exact east and west as it can during the year-cycle. Its motion is now reversed. Slowly the sunset points move southward on the western horizon, and the length of the day decreases. In the Lunation cycle (from New Moon to New Moon) this is the First Quarter phase.
On the “ship” which symbolizes the ego-consciousness floating, as it were, on the sea of the vast Unconscious, the individualized will makes a basic decision. The dominant Yang force allows the Yin force to begin its six-month long rise to power. The “collective” will gradually overcomes the “individual,” and at the end the state will overpower the person. Now, however, the individual person enjoys his most glorious hour; he exults in his ability to make a “free decision”- i.e. to act as an individual who selects his life goal and his allegiance.

This is the first stage in the nineteenth five-fold series of degree symbols. In a decisive act heavy with consequences, the symbolic college youth might realize that he should bring to an end his quest for the ideal companion and enter into matrimony. He assents to the possibility of progeny, of home responsibility. His consciousness accepts a process of fundamental REORIENTATION, implying the stabilization of his energies.”


Sooo, where’s your Moon Boat taking you?
Which relation-ships, home, and other harbours for your soul….?
Dare to re-orient yourself.

 

The SUN will be at 0°49′ CAP.

1° CAPRICORN:

 

Chief Seattle

 

“AN INDIAN CHIEF CLAIMS POWER FROM THE ASSEMBLED TRIBE.

KEYNOTE: The power and responsibility implied in any claim for leadership.

The religious ideal implied in the preceding symbol has now materialized or crystallized into sheer power — the power to lead the community and to ensure its welfare or even its physical survival. The energies released through group cooperation (Libra), deepened and emotionally experienced as forces of great potency (Scorpio), and given meaning and conscious purpose (Sagittarius) are now stabilized and hierarchized. The power of the group is turned into a measurable and carefully managed “capital.” The words “chief” and “capital” come from the same Latin word, caput, meaning “head.” 
A time comes in many lives when the individual finds themselves placed in a situation that allows them to assume power over their comrades, however limited this power may be. Is he / she ready to do this effectively and responsibly? This is the supreme test of a human being in society. 
It complements its polar opposite (Summer Solstice degree), which refers to the acceptance by the individual of a new kind of allegiance as a foundation for the integration of a mature personality. Such a foundation may, but need not, refer to establishing a home.

This represents the first stage in a five-fold process — the fifty-fifth sequence of five symbols. It refers to the capacity latent in every individual to claim and assume AUTHORITY in a vital group-situation.”

 

SATURN now in CAP is clearly about this kind of mature Authority – a notion to claim it where appropriate, and the repercussions of its use (or abuse).
Quite clearly, we’re seeing plenty of evidence of the necessity for responsible leadership and authority, and for the misuse of it. The theme becomes more prominent in the SATURN in CAP years that can also have a heightened karmic effect (SATURN being the ‘Lord of Karma’, in its own domain CAP), across the board.

What / who’s evidently not fit for authority must adjust, or go.
Actually quite simple.

May better leadership and authority establish itself in these years.

What in us doesn’t step UP to the occasion, and assume leader-ship (because you can, you have the cap-acities)?
What’s in the way of truly leading your life?
And how can you claim Authority again?

 

Especially if your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets are in early CANCER, CAP but also ARIES and LIBRA…
…You’d notice the tension and perhaps notion for re-orientation to be in natural Leadership of your Life (again).
As the year 2019 unfolds, with its Eclipses in CAP – CAN, clear orientation reveals itself more and more. But hey, maybe this FULL MOON already made things crystal clear to you, in your Heart of Hearts?

 

 

Winter SoUlstice SUN – Photo by Melanie, Solstice 2018

 

What are other Planetary Energies in the Full Moon Field, and what’s their Medicine for us?

 

  • The SUN and MOON in early CAP / CAN come out of a T-square with MARS / CHIRON (aligned on Dec 28) in late PISCES where also NEPTUNE ‘sails’ (and was met by MARS on Dec 7).
    The ‘outlet’ and Piscean solution for the SUN – MOON tension leads us to the Medicine of Unity and Connection. Heart Connection transcends either-or, this or that, and a happy, healing Heart can be ‘at home’ anywhere, esp. in the Heart of Hearts….

 

  • MERCURY and JUPITER in SAG aligned this morning, just before the Winter SoUlstice.
    Joy to the World! Speak your Truth, and Raise Vibrations!
    Important to be truthful, and come from a pure Heart that’s not about better-than.

 

  • VENUS has come to the Heart of the Scorpion – as she ‘sits’ in mid SCO -, comes out of a mystical, magical Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI (exact today Dec 21) and will square LILITH in central AQ on Dec 23.
    Intimacy, Magic, and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and Freedom and Independence.
    Allow both to co-exist rather than be in conflict – NEPTUNE is the big unifyer anyway…

 

  • URANUS retro (the only retro Planet at this point!) in late AR / on the ‘Settling Point’ to TAU will turn around to go direct on Jan 6 – the day after the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse. This month (end of Dec to mid-Jan) are quite URANIAN with this focal point.
    Meaning, paradigm shifts and liberation yet also disruption of old patterns and structures.
    Allow freedom to prevail, not just freedom from or freedom for, but (one of my favourite provocative quotes by J. Krishnamurti) freedom that has no opposite….

 

 

More about URANUS’s turnaround on Jan 6, and MARS going from PISCES into ARIES on Dec 31 (a big energy boost into the New Year) in upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!
Of course, you can also expect a New Year’s Overview post!

 

Wishing you a blessed Winter SoUlstice, Christmas, and Holiday Time of your Tradition!
May the Returning Light shine brightly into all areas of your life, and guide your Way HOME! ❤

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

Experiment with the New YOU! URANUS retro re-enters ARIES (Nov 6 – March 6, 2019)

4 Nov

Prometheus, the Greek hero associated with the Planet URANUS, capturing the fire of spirit and creative inventiveness from the Gods for Humanity.

One last phase of URANUS in ARIES is coming up over the Winter, before it finally ‘lands’ in TAURUS next March – until 2026!

Experimental URANUS has tried on TAU this year for exactly 6 lunar months, since the DAY of the the New Moon in TAU (May 15), and on the day before SCO New Moon (Nov 7) it will retract from the Taurean realm.
What an amazing alignment – ‘just like that’…!

URANUS has been in ARIES since March 2011 – and is usually 7 1/2 years in a Zodiac sign.
This ARIES ‘wrap-up phase’ at the very end of the fiery ‘initiator’ / ‘instigator’ Archetype can stimulate accelerated newness, esp. technology and start-ups
(yep, we’ve already seen so much of that during UR in AR), innovative experimentation, and a bold ‘get the ball rolling’ initiatives, as well as unprecedented momentum to think and live outside the box / Matrix.

BE fresh and new and in the Awake NOW that has no comparison.
The New YOU is where it’s at.

 

Next UP for URANUS retro in ARIES this season:

 

  • On Nov 30, VENUS, freshly out of retro (from Nov 16 on) at the end of LIBRA (on the ‘Tipping Point’) will oppose URANUS (for the 3rd time that-is, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) just last week, on Oct 31, with VENUS retro, again from early SCO.
    Wow, triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) – that sounds like there’s been unfinished business between the Love Goddess and the Liberator.
    When we truly love ourselves and come from the Consciousness of Love (SUN – VENUS / ‘New VENUS’ being activated via VENUS retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
    Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.

 

  • URANUS retro in late ARIES squares the Lunar Nodes in late CAP (SN) – late CAN (NN) from mid-Nov to mid-Dec, exact Dec 2 / 3.
    A rare triple cuspy T-square, with URANUS on the ‘Settling Point’, the South Node on the ‘Collaboration / Systems / Society Point’, and the North Node on the ‘Creativity / Inner Child / Playfulness Point’.
    What can this add up to?
    Tension between a (perhaps old pattern of) investing too much energy into group efforts that aren’t really ‘cutting it’ (perhaps you’re taking too much on, or are with groups or part of a society run by on old ‘operating systems’
    ) – while fresh energy is coming in and welcoming you to be creative, loving, playful, and (self) caring in new ways.
    Sometimes it takes a liberating paradigm shift…
    JUPITER from the SAG side of the ‘Phoenix Point’ trining the North Node supports you in being on your uplifting path and in your Truth.

 

  • On Feb 3, 2019, VENUS at the end of SAG goes into Fire Trine with URANUS (by then direct again) in ARIES, and on Feb 13, MARS at the end of ARIES meets and passes URANUS.
    Very adventurous and uplifting energies.
    The MARS / URANUS connection in MARS’s ruled sign can unleash quite erratic and unpredictable, at best liberating breakthrough energies. Viva la Revolution!

 

Wishing you a liberating, rebirthing Uranian season!

Che Guevara 90: Born Revolutionary Hero

14 May

SO, on this day would be Che Guevara’s 90th birthday!
Yes, only – he was born on May 14, 1928 and died at age 39!

Feliz Cumpleanos, Che Ernesto!

On an epic journey in Cuba in Feb 2012 with a friend, Che’s charismatic revolutionary icon was omnipresent, and of course we also visited Santa Clara – the town of the decisive battle of the Cuban Revolution in 1958 where he’s most prominently immortalized.

We weren’t even aware at the time that it would have been the year of Che’s URANUS Return (for everyone at age 84) – full circle of the planet of Revolution and Liberation.

No surprise that URANUS features prominently in Che’s chart.
Goes to show how distinctly Astrology points to the Archetypes, in ‘bigger than life’ people’, and in all of us. 

Check out Che’s birth chart here.
Ironically, there’s also a controversy around his birth date being May 14 or June 14, 1928. In the museum, I found the date May 14 verified and took a note (I believe it was even the birth certificate), and that’s what the usually very reliable Swiss astro.com has too. Vamos!

Here it is again:

 

  • URANUS right on his AC in early ARIES and chart ruler MARS right ‘behind’, in universal PISCES in the 12th – born revolutionary and freedom fighter on behalf of ‘the whole’. Self sacrificing, charismatic, iconic, bigger than life. Expressing the ‘Zeitgeist’ and being a force for change.
  • His URANUS / AC is also in square with his MC in CAP which is ruled by SATURN retro in SAG with his South Node in the 9th House: On a mission to ‘disrupt’ (as we nowadays say), challenge, and overthrow a system / establishment that ‘didn’t work for him’ (SATURN retro) with a clear alternative vision and direction.
  • Something in him gave him intrinsic authority and leadership, independent of age (SATURN retro – his only retro planet – with his SN). Well, his youthful / forever young warrior spirit (ARIES / URANUS / MARS Rising, and SATURN in SAG) was so iconic throughout.
  • His job astrologically / life map wise was to communicate his revolutionary philosophy into understandable ways that people would resonate with – which would create a huge wave (SN / SATURN in his 9th House in SAG, NN / MERCURY in GEM in his 3rd, and the PISCES MOON in his 12th House squaring the Nodal Axis). And yes, giving the collective, the needs of the people (MOON in PI in the 12th House) a thrust for freedom (MARS in late PI to URANUS in AR) expressed directly through his presence, his life. 
  • And a big dynamic, assertive presence that-is: JUPITER in AR in the 1st House too.
  • Very dynamically charismatic and popular way beyond his life, via the square from his TAURUS SUN square NEPTUNE in LEO.

 

And guess what the Sabian Symbol for Che’s MERCURY in GEM (close to his karmic North Node) is?

GEMINI 5°: “A REVOLUTIONARY MAGAZINE ASKING FOR ACTION.

KEYNOTE: The explosive tendency of repressed feelings and root emotions.

Every movement overstressing one direction calls forth in time an equally extreme movement in the opposite direction. This is particularly true at the level of the dualistic mind symbolized in the zodiac by Gemini. What is rigidly bound in form and convention tends to explode into formlessness. It may do so violently if socially oppressed — through revolution — or at the psychological level in psychosis; or it may withdraw inwardly into the mystical state in which one identifies with an unformulatable Reality.

This fifth stage is related to the first, for it is the experience of a world of being so far unperceived by the everyday consciousness which starts the process. In the same sense a psychedelic experience may momentarily make the mind transparent to a non-ego-structured realm of consciousness, and may lead to a sustained attempt at understanding what has been revealed of a transcendent Reality. Whether the revolutionary action is violent or peaceful, bitterly resentful or loving, the one desire is TO REACH BEYOND ESTABLISHED FORMS.”

 

What a day to commemorate the revolutionary spirit, since tomorrow – just after the New Moon URANUS will enter TAURUS and be squared by MARS, freshly entered into Freedom for All oriented AQ on the day after!

Viva la Revolution!
Freedom from within – unconditionally!

And: The Power of Love leads the Evolution, and the Revolution of the Heart.
Freedom to BE!

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 2015 / 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!

Epiphanies and Liberation

6 Jan

Hi dear Astro~News Reader!

Have you noticed? Lots of things come into motion these days, and wake-up calls lead to breakthroughs!
Dynamic start-up energies with URANUS going direct again (since Jan 2) in ARIES kick us out of old conditioning.
WAKE UP, People!
Time to give ourselves permission to Break Free from old, heavy, slow, conditioned consciousness, and into liberated initiatives.

 

prometheus

Show up authentically, get started, and BE YOU!

With a liberated consciousness Synchronicities and Epiphanies happen!

And since there’s NO Planet retrograde now, until early March it’s an excellent phase for dynamic manifestation, and for building based on vision and integrity (SATURN out of SAG, and now in CAP).

Picture above:
Prometheus bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

 

Magi Star

 

 

Today Jan 6 MERCURY in late SAG (Galactic Ctre) goes into FIRE trine with URANUS stationary in late AR, and squares CHIRON in late PI (#3 of 3 in the retro and post-retro phase):
Gazing into the Eye of the Divine, vast and unfathomable. What can be said???

Deeper understanding of what frees and heals us, and helps release old ‘stories’ and beliefs.

Jan 6 is Epiphany in the Christian calendar – ‘Astrologers’ / Magi Day’ –
Time for all of us to See the Light, and Follow the Star!
