Uranus in Taurus – The End of the World–As We Know It.


I try not to give into fear by remaining rational and level-headed, but this upcoming ingress of Uranus into Taurus has me very concerned. This is because Taurus represents peace, normalcy, finances, food, nature, values and standards. Uranus is about upheaval, rebellion, chaos, sudden upsets, destruction, tyranny, sudden change, and perversion. Uranus also deals with groups of people, social causes, and activism. Uranus is considered to be in the “Fall” when in Taurus. A sign that places a planet in the “Fall”, is not a healthy placement for it. Uranus will first ingress into Taurus on May 16, 2018. The 16th is a day of catastrophe so I’m curious to see how Uranus will get things started.

I pulled a Tarot Card to represent the theme of Uranus in Taurus and it was the 5 of Swords. The 5 of Swords is one of the most troublesome cards of the Tarot Deck. It is ascribed to Venus in Aquarius and it denotes conflict, treachery, betrayal, rebellion, uprising, theft, hate, vindictiveness and artifice. What’s interesting and downright spooky is that Venus rules Taurus and Uranus rules Aquarius so the 5 of Swords is on point. It is not a card that is conducive to harmonious relationships and for the well-being of humanity. The 5 of Swords only confirms my suspicions about Uranus’ entry into the sign of the Bull. This card also proves that I am not just being paranoid nor am I giving in to irrational fear. 

So let me just cut to the chase with some bullet points regarding the possible ways in which Uranus in Taurus will manifest:

  • Rebellion against convention and all that is natural. The abnormal becomes normalized. Chaos replaces order. Upheavals. 
  • A major change/shift in global economic conditions—for the worse. Economic insecurity.
  • Tyranny—especially economic and ecological. A cashless system could be implemented. Money becomes totally electronic. 
  • Microchip implants will become more of the norm.
  • GMO foods will become even more the norm.
  • Perversion will reach an all-time high due to the erosion of values and standards.
  • The lines between Right and Wrong will be blurred.
  • Public nudity and other forms of indecency/deviant behavior will become more socially acceptable.
  • The battle between the sexes will reach an all-time high.
  • Racial tension will reach a crescendo; A race or civil war is possible.
  • Riots and social uprisings.
  • Being under total surveillance.
  • Air travel could be heavily restricted in some areas due to civil unrest or war.
  • People will develop more of a mob mentality.
  • The perversion or devaluation of the Arts. Ugliness will be considered to be Beauty.
  • An increase in natural disasters, crazy weather, mega storms, droughts. 
  • The weather will become totally manufactured (Geoengineering programs have been in place for many years now, but NASA claims that it will own the weather by 2025 http://csat.au.af.mil/2025/volume3/vol3ch15.pdf)

I don’t mean to be all about gloom and doom, but I am also a realist and I can’t ignore this destructive energy that is imminent. We will need more faith and inner peace than ever to get through these sour times that are on the horizon.

On the bright side, enlightenment will increase and people will gain more access to creative powers that are not of this Earth. Uranus in Taurus will usher in some state-of-the-art designs that have yet to enter our realm of human experience. There will also be an increase in entrepreneurs as Uranus enters Taurus since Uranus = Independence. This is also a very good time for Astrologers (also meta-physicians in general) since Uranus is the planet that rules Astrology and with Taurus representing money, but also realism, Astrology will be given more legitimacy. Taurus also represents advisors and with Uranus in Taurus, many people will be seeking answers that cannot be satisfied through conventional means. More people will consider becoming an Astrologer as a viable career option.

Transit Talk: Venus is Twirling Through Libra

Ralph Lauren Black Label Spring RTW Collection 2012 (1)

Venus is currently twirling through Libra, one of the signs that she rules so of course she’s in her element right now. Venus in Libra craves love, peace and harmony. She detests that which is crude, crass and offensive. Beauty and symmetry get her creative juices flowing. In relationships she places a high value on fairness, equality and reciprocation. Venus in Libra has the tendency to be a people-pleaser and will often place her partner’s needs ahead of her own.

Venus in Libra needs art, music, and beautiful surroundings in order to feel at ease. Ugly and dilapidated conditions get her down. In terms of personal style she aims for a classic, well-tailored, yet, unpretentious look. Makeup and jewelry are usually very tasteful and understated. The classy jumpsuit was probably a Venus in Libra invention because it accentuates the hips, elongates the legs, and provides a symmetrical, streamlined look. Eyebrows are usually a big deal for Libra due to an element of symmetry.

Sexually, Venus in Libra can be a partner who is eager to please, gentle in approach, and very much into mental stimulation. Reading erotic literature and candid talks about sex are almost as good as doing it.

October: Dark and Lovely

Ahhhh. It’s October 1st. October is one of my favorite months. That’s because it is the height of autumn and the weather is beautiful pretty much wherever you go. As a resident of the Phoenix metro area in Arizona I am particularly fond of the autumn season since this is when the temperatures become milder, but you can still wear shorts. The autumn sunsets in Arizona are indeed spectacular. October also marks the height of the zodiac sign Libra. Libra is about harmony, balance and one’s relationships to others. It is about art, beauty and symmetry. Justice, fairness and equality. My Venus is in Libra in the 9th house which gives me a heightened aesthetic sensitivity. I practically worship beauty in all of its form and fashion.

October is also a time that marks the celebration of Halloween of course with its pagentry of demons, goblins and ghouls. Witches, wizards, and warlocks. Skulls, skeletons, and scythes. It is essentially the American version of the Spanish Dia de los muertos. Growing up under the canopy of a very restrictive religion, Seventh Day Adventism did not preclude my celebration of this sinister holiday. I wasn’t allowed to wear nail polish or have pierced ears, but on one day out of the year my siblings and I were able to demonstrate our devilish side. Looking back it now seems very paradoxical. We were told things like “never say your prayers out loud because the devil may hear you and attack them”. We were not allowed to watch TV or do any “worldy” activities from sun down Friday evening until sundown Saturday evening–just like orthodox Jews. I always resented the SDA church for that. So much fear was instilled in me through Seventh Day Adventism to follow the commandments of the bible as well as the church, yet on one day we could celebrate the dark side. It still doesn’t make sense to me and it never will. It also never made sense why my father who was the ringleader of this SDA charade would be so pious, yet he maintained a stack of porno mags to peruse at his disposal. My father is a 7th Day Adventist to this day and probably still an avid porn viewer as well. Both can be toxic to one’s mental and spiritual health. Combined, I believe they create a synergistic poisonous concoction with the fallout being guilt and inner turmoil.

For those who travel the left hand path, this is a very significant time of year. A lot of rituals are conducted and a lot of blood is spilled in the name of sacrifice. Some of this blood is of the innocent including children. This continues through the Christmas season. This is also the time of year where child kidnappings are at their highest. We need to be aware of what we are representing when we don that devil or vampire mask. Are we aware that we are representing the dark or shadow side of our very selves? It’s all fun when the mask can easily come off. Yet we have many souls who are trapped in their own shadow; who cannot or choose not to remove the demonic mask for whatever reason. What are we really celebrating? What are we really doing?

Demons are real, ghosts are real, vampires are real, ghouls are very real. Yet most party-goers believe it not. It’s just all fun and games, right? Talk to some real people who have heard strange bumps in the night. http://www.djinnuniverse.com/tell-us-your-djinn-story

Be aware that there are many things unseen out there.

Remember on that 31st night that the path you choose is always either left or right.

If you want to dress up, represent correctly and always be ready to face your fears directly.
