I was thinking of posting this in the Astrology Club, but I think it makes more sense to make it a public topic. For those of you that don't know, Astrology is an ancient art that specializes in reading the celestial bodies of our solar system and beyond to reveal patterns of synchronicity about what your soul/essence sought for you to explore yourself through- and between what happens on Earth & why those things might happen. --- Modern Astrology and Horoscopes often just use your Sun Sign to convey who you are in this life. But Astrology as a whole is about all of the bodies in our solar system and how they mathematically & musically come together to create the parts of us that become greater than the sum of the whole. Whether that whole be you, another, a country or our Earth. Each Planet moves through 12 Signs based on where its coordinates are in the Sky. When you receive a Natal Chart, it shows you where the Sun, Moon and all the other planets in Astrology were at the moment of your birth. These co-ordinates can then be interpreted to reveal the potential of your life. However, once you're born, the planets keep moving through the sky, and over the course of our lives they continue moving through the signs, helping to show you what evolution may come at different stages of your life based on where the planets are then. The planet URANUS is a very slow one. It revolves around the Sun in 84 Earth Years, so it takes roughly 7 Years to move through each sign of the Western Zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini etc.) Because it's one of the planets that moves so slowly, it helps to define/influence a large window of time. --- Uranus in Astrology is a planet that represents eccentricity, shock/surprise, disruption, revolution, truth and power. It reflects how it was found- as a planet discovered beyond Saturn, beyond the naked eye, beyond what was considered to be the limit of the measurable universe in ancient times. So it's about surprising truths that come out of nowhere. As Uranus moves through each Sign, it disrupts, shocks, shakes-up, revolutionizes and empowers/disempowers the qualities of that sign. Uranus is currently in ARIES, and has been since 2011. Different people will interpret Uranus being in Aries as meaning various things. But in general you can say it shakes-up what Aries represents. Aries is about EMERGENCE, EMERGENCY, INDEPENDENCE, SELF, SELFISHNESS, SELF-ASSERTION, SELF-DISCOVERY, INDIVIDUALITY, SPARK, FIRE, BIRTH, LIFE, PIONEERING SPIRIT, ADVENTURE, IMPULSE etc. I think you get the kind of energy that Aries is. Uranus in Aries will tend to bring shocking new truths about the above that empower/disempower the individualism of everyone alive. You can probably see how this may have occurred for you. On May 15 2018, Uranus moves out of Aries and into TAURUS. Taurus represents PRESENCE, ESTABLISHMENT, STRUCTURE, FORM, BODY, VALUES, RESOURCES, SURVIVAL, SELF-VALUE, SENSUALITY, NATURE, MOTHER EARTH, RIGIDITY, POSSESSION, POSSESSIVENESS, TANGIBILITY, MATERIAL, PATIENCE, ABUNDANCE, FERTILITY etc. Taurus is like the child that has been born and is now attaching itself to things of the physical world. As Uranus moves into Taurus soon, all of these qualities will be shocked awake in ways that are empowering or disempowering. And because Uranus is an influence on whole cohorts of people, these will be about disruptions in all of the values+resources that have fundamentally established our world. This includes food, water, clothing, physical security, housing, shelter, money, the 5 Senses etc. --- If you look at the larger patterns of the world you will see that there are many factors leading to turning points in all of the above. We have LAB-BASED MEAT & the RISE OF VEGANISM. We have the severe droughts and floods in the world that are rendering the basic necessities of life inaccessible. Look at the WATER CRISIS in Flint; Michigan- Cape Town; South Africa & the Lands of the First Nations for example. We have the looming FINANCIAL and perhaps ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. As well as the RISE OF CRYPTOCURRENCY. We have the FALL OF CAPITALISM, and the 1% sneakily or overtly working against its demolishment. We have the need for a RESOURCE-BASED ECONOMY rising in prominence. We have VIRTUAL REALITY transforming the basic way we interact with the world through our 5 Senses. We have the glaring and growing divide between the RICH AND POOR, or the TOP AND BOTTOM CLASSES. We have the discussions and plans that must be put into place to reduce or reverse the EFFECTS OF HUMAN-INDUCED CLIMATE CHANGE on the whole planet. So I wanted to make this article so we can discuss how Uranus in Aries has affected us, and of the changes and truths to come as we move into Uranus in Taurus.
A while back, I asked member Nick Sweeney, one of our local astrologists, about how he defined each of the signs in Astrology. Before MBTI and The Overleaves System, Astrology was my major reference for personalities. Today, other than occasionally checking out a pretty valid horoscope site(for me anyways- it's generally been very accurate) and helping friends understand the system a bit more, I don't really feel a draw to Astrology anymore- but it was and still is helpful. So I wanted to share a quick list of descriptions and polarities I made for each of the signs a year ago(with the help of a bunch of cross-referenced astrology sites, personal experience, and NickS), just to see if they're generally valid. ARIES- Purposeful action for the sake of self-awareness + self-discovery. -Self-Involved: Quick-tempered, Ignorant, Impatient, Impulsive etc. (The -Aries removes everyone else from the equation and follows only their rules.) +Pioneering: Curious, Energetic, Courageous, Driven etc. (The +Aries stops forcing, and starts exploring. The +Aries includes everyone. When NickS said that the action of an Aries must have a purpose, it felt pretty valid to me.) TAURUS- Ground creative impulses into stable, enduring things/forms. -Rigidity: Possessive, Inflexible, Obstinate, Aloof etc. (The -Taurus just doesn't care, or doesn't realize they do- so they act without the comprehension +Stability brings.) +Stability: Grounding, Nourishing, Securing, Helping/Providing, Loyal etc. (Pretty self-explanatory.) GEMINI- Making connections to learn, understand, express; gathering info to see clearly. -Abstract: Anxious, Inconsistent, Disconnected, Speculative etc. (The -Gemini feels the pull between their conflicting thoughts and emotions- I've found they're the most polarized and inconsistent sign, and that they try to reconcile this with reason or aggression or detachment etc..) +Connecting: Adjustable, Sharing, Curious, Versatile etc. (The +Gemini brings insight through their connections+curiosity that helps bridge their duality.) CANCER- Creating an emotionally secure sanctuary to safely explore feelings. -Moodiness: Petulant, Indirect, Callous, Clingy etc. (-Cancers indulge in their emotions in unhealthy ways- they can be pretty damn paranoid too.) +Tenderhearted: Creative, Securing, Intuitive, Protective, Courageous etc. (+Cancers are emotionally strong and they tend to use this to reach out to others or within.) LEO- Be bold+creative and express you in ways that warm, motivate and uplift. -Self-Assuming: Assumptive, Dominating, Melodramatic, Possessive, Egotistical etc. (Especially when the -Leo's pride+sense of self is wounded, self-assumption can come in to protect them in a myriad of ways- from simple arrogance to taking charge to assuming roles for themselves to fit into/control.) +Integrity: Bighearted, Valiant, Flexible, Creative etc. (The +Leo is filled with exuberance, even if only felt from within.) VIRGO- Rigorous Self-Analysis; and Dedicating that to meaningful work/service. -Counterproductive: Exacting, Interfering, Perfectionist, Procrastinating, Denial etc. (The inherent drive to perfect can overwhelm the -Virgo when all they see are the negatives, shortcomings, burdens, frustrations etc. They will then use their drive for perfectionism as an excuse for their behaviors.) +Constructive: Helpful, Meticulous, Methodical, Enduring (Virgos are tireless workers and analyzers of themselves+others. This is all done for the sake of their work/service.) LIBRA- Creating relationships that reflect beauty, harmony and peace. -Irresolute: Vacillating, Theoretical, Judgmental, Avoidant etc. (-Libras seek to avoid displeasure/conflict and emphasize pleasure/calm, using/doing whatever they can to create such situations.) +Harmonious: Confident, Balanced, Resolute, Diplomatic/Co-Operative etc. (Pretty self-explanatory.) SCORPIO- Transforming yourself through seeing your inner intensities reflected back. -Intense: Compulsive, Obsessive, Bitter/Resentful, Unrelenting etc. (I think the -Scorpio is motivated+fixated from feeling helpless or powerless.) +Magnetic: Self-Transforming, Perceptive, Resourceful, Passionate/Motivated etc. (The +Scorpio, however is motivated to transform and heal.) SAGITTARIUS- Growth and understanding through flexible searching and adventure. -Irresponsible: Avoidant, Restive, Blunt, Inflexible, Aimless etc. (It's pretty clear that if commitment equates loss of freedom, this can result.) +Aspiring: Searching/Seeking, Unrestrained, Adventurous, Open-Minded Philosophizing etc. (The +Sagittarius has a direction/aspiration, and acts upon this to discover new wisdom, truths and possibilities.) CAPRICORN- Bringing what's inside you into your public role/contribution. -Tunnel-Visioned: Concealed Inner Turmoil, Controlling, Dismissive, Detached etc. (The -Capricorn is fixated upon the worth of their choices, often to the point that if those choices hold no worth they are ignored/dismissed/buried in favor of their more worthy goals/pursuits.) +Ambitious: Resourceful/Practical, Hardworking, Responsible, Helpful, Deliberate etc. (The +Capricorn materializes their ideas+impulses by following+building upon them. This is why they're hard workers, they are always climbing and building and structuring.) AQUARIUS- Sharing knowledge+ideals to liberate and progress to a higher potential. -Eccentric: Dogmatic, Alienated, Rebellious, Extremist etc. (The -Aquarius internally divides themselves- with no doubt they're eccentric, but they tend to undermine themselves for this, distance from others to avoid this, or put themselves above others to compensate.) +Progressive: Innovative, Humanitarian/Altruistic, Self-Embodying, Visionary etc. (+Aquarians communicate their ideals to bring radical movement in a positive direction. Many are reformers, and reach out to make a difference.) PISCES- Aware of being the vital sustaining force of your life- a part of the whole. -Excessive: Hypersensitive, Impressionable, Fantasy, Melancholic, Disillusioned etc. (-Pisces are hard for me to pinpoint, they're almost slippery- but I think that in general, they all want something/one inspiring to look forward to, to the point they lose themselves in that or become burdened by it.) +Empathetic: Listener, Intuitive, Chameleon, Charitable etc. (The +Pisces realizes that the realm of intimacy is highly important to them, and that contributing to something they care about is worthwhile. They're one of the more instinctual signs.)
