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

riot

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.

Kanye Keeps the Krazy Coming

Kanye

After reading some of the latest tweets of the one and only Kanye West, aka Yeezy, I was inspired to analyze his natal chart. Firstly, Kanye West’s birth date alone provides a gateway into his crazy world. Born when the Sun was skipping through Gemini and  on the 8th day, Kanye can’t help but to speak his frenetic mind in an attempt to further his ambitions. 8 is the number of Saturn according to Chaldean numerology. People born on the 8th are often extremely ambitious, business-oriented, and drawn to high positions in life. With Kanye being a Gemini, the energy of the number 8 is channeled into a variety of pursuits from music production to fashion design. 8 people have a tremendous ability to attract large sums of money via industry or government. Career is everything to 8 people and they are willing to work hard to get to the top of their field. Kanye is no exception. However, the number 8 is one of destiny and with it comes a heavy dose of karma that cannot be escaped in the present incarnation. 8 can bring one to tremendous heights in terms of status and wealth, but when the wheel turns downward, there’s not much that can be done to mitigate the destined misfortune. Kanye West may certainly be experiencing the downside of his destiny at the moment. Here are some of his recent tweets:

Bill Cosby At a Glance: Does He Have What it Takes?

Before I get into the discussion regarding Bill Cosby’s astrological profile I must make the following disclaimer:

According to Astro-Databank, the source of Bill Cosby’s natal chart, Bill Cosby’s actual birth time could not be verified and thus his natal chart was given a Rodden Rating of DD which stands for Dirty Data. As a result, certain aspects of Bill Cosby’s natal chart will not be discussed such as his Ascendant, Midheaven and houses. The degree of his Moon in Virgo will remain in question as well. With that being said, still much insight can be gleaned from his chart.

There are certain aspects in Bill Cosby’s natal chart which would make him in my opinion capable of committing the sexual crimes in which over 40 women to date have alleged. I will discuss these aspects briefly below starting with the most benign.

Sun in Cancer sextile Moon in Virgo

This aspect has provided Bill Cosby with many opportunities to groom and mentor women. The fact that Cancer and Virgo are involved reinforces the theme of helping or mentoring women.

Sun in Cancer conjunct Pluto in Cancer

This aspect can lead to prominence in one’s life and Bill Cosby is certainly no exception. Sun conjunct Pluto can also denote one who wields a great deal of influence over others. The darker manifestation of this aspect can deal with operating under the radar due to motivations that center on what society would deem criminal or taboo. The fact that his Sun and Pluto are in Cancer underscores the theme of his manipulation of women.

Sun in Cancer semisquare Venus in Gemini

With Sun semisquare Venus, Bill Cosby may have a difficult time respecting others as individuals and is more likely to see others as an extension of himself, or worse objects. There could be a lack of boundaries and mutual respect at play with this aspect–especially with respect to his relationships with women. This aspect can also deal with a man who has a difficult time being faithful especially since Venus is in Gemini which can deal with an appetite for different women. Furthermore, in a male chart, this aspect can deal with the tendency to lose sight of one’s purpose or role when in the face of attractive females.

Mercury in Cancer conjunct Pluto in Cancer

Mercury in bed with Pluto can point to someone who harbors dark or taboo thoughts. This kind of person may also know how to operate under the radar and avoid arousing the suspicion of others. Thus, with this aspect Bill Cosby has a mind that is prone to plotting, manipulation and Svengali tactics. In the darkest most literal sense, Mercury conjunct Pluto can deal with a mind that is geared toward overpowering others.

Moon in Virgo sextile Mars in Scorpio

This aspect can deal with Bill Cosby’s ability to meet new women and bring them under his tutelage. This can point to an ease with being alone with women as a result of gaining their trust. Again, I am seeing Svengali tendencies with this aspect–especially with respect to young women. Sexually, this aspect can point to him being attracted to women who appear weak, vulnerable or helpless.

Moon in Virgo trine Jupiter in Capricorn

This aspect in the most simplest terms is Bill Cosby being blessed with many opportunities to be in the company of different women–many of whom are looking for growth (Jupiter) in terms of their careers (Capricorn) This aspect also points to Bill Cosby’s ability to meet women from all over the world. He was also able to come across as a man of integrity and high principles–but certainly not so now. A dark manifestation of this otherwise positive aspect could be an insatiable appetite for women that becomes an ambition and the propensity to be a philanderer.

Moon in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus

Moon trine Uranus can deal with a man being a magnet for different women and with Uranus in Taurus–a lot of these women could be strikingly attractive. We know that Bill Cosby allegedly targeted models and aspiring actresses. Uranus can also deal with being tall in stature which reinforces the model theme. I feel that this aspect also points to Cosby’s involvement with the Playboy Mansion and his friendship with Hugh Hefner since Uranus deals with that which goes against the norm and Playboy when first published certainly went against the norm. Uranus also deals with friendships and groups and one could say that the Playboy jet set were a unique group of prominent men. Moon in Virgo can deal with seeking perfection in women, an impossible ideal which Playboy has consistently tried to uphold.

Moon in Virgo conjunct Neptune in Virgo

In Cosby’s case, this aspect can deal with the drugging of women in the most literal sense because Neptune deals with intoxicating substances and the Moon deals with women. His Moon being in Virgo, points to Cosby’s involvement with women who were seeking his help or mentorship.  Most of these women were young in age at the time that these incidents allegedly occurred which is another characteristic of Moon in Virgo (youthful women). Neptune is not just the planet of intoxication, it is also the planet of sleep. Most reports of Bill Cosby’s alleged crimes involved the women waking up from sleep or unconsciousness and feeling violated. Also with this Moon-Neptune conjunction Cosby may have yearned for the perfect woman and perhaps a woman was only perfect in his eyes when asleep or unconscious.

What’s also interesting is that Cosby has two Grand Trines both involving his Moon. Grand Trines can point to one being self-contained, some kind of renegade or where something is being kept tightly under wraps barring any outside interference. Grand Trines can give a person free reign to do as they wish in certain areas of life.

Venus in Gemini sextile Saturn in Aries

This aspect provided Bill Cosby with plenty of opportunities to help women and become something of a mentor or parental figure. Saturn’s influence would have enabled him to gain the trust of numerous women. Saturn also deals with Cosby’s professional status which gave him credibility and respect.

Saturn can represent something that is severely lacking in one’s life and as a result it leads to a tendency for the person to overcompensate. With Cosby’s Saturn in Aries, he may have never felt that he was man enough and this could have stemmed from his relationship with his father. As a result, he may have been compelled to overcompensate in the area of sexual gratification. Most will agree that overcompensation tends to take things too far.

Mars in Scorpio sextile Neptune in Virgo

This is to me one of the most incriminating aspects of Cosby’s natal chart by far. On the surface it could simply point to a strong drive and effort to make it in show business/acting that pays off. However, this aspect is also in my opinion, what enabled Bill Cosby to utilize an intoxicating liquid (Neptune) concoction to feed (Virgo) to unsuspecting women as an attempt to have sex (Mars) whilst being overpowered (Scorpio). This aspect alone points to the ability to manipulate, drug and then subjugate through rape or sexual assault. I’m not saying that I’m 100% positive that he is guilty, but this aspect certainly makes those allegations extremely plausible. Remember, Scorpio deals with taboos including rape and Cosby’s Mars is in Scorpio. Mars and Neptune together can also point to using deceptive means to get sex.

Mars in Scorpio opposition Uranus in Taurus

While this aspect is very wide in orb (8 degrees), it still wields some influence in Cosby’s life namely in the form of him having alternative or perverse sexual desires. Since Taurus deals with possession, Cosby may have a sexual desire to possess women, but only temporarily since Uranus is involved. There’s also an element of danger interwoven in this aspect so perhaps Cosby would get aroused by the risks that he was taking when attempting to subjugate women to his will.

The Asteroid Lilith

Lilith glyph

Bill Cosby has some interesting aspects with the asteroid Lilith. According to Astrology, Lilith represents rebellion, sexual prowess and that which is taboo. Lilith is also about being a pariah or social outcast.

Lilith in Sagittarius quintile Moon in Virgo

With Cosby’s Lilith residing in Sagittarius, he has a great deal to lose by allowing himself to be ruled by his lower passions. This could deal with a sort of fall from grace where he is given saintly status at one point in his life and later demonized as a result of some scandal. With Cosby’s Lilith in quintile to his Moon, he was given special privileges and treatment where his relationship with women were concerned. He may possess a special talent for gaining women’s trust and making them feel secure in his presence. It is this special talent which would grant him carte blanche to become sexually aggressive with these women.

Lilith in Sagittarius opposition Venus in Gemini

This aspect between Lilith and Venus can deal with both Cosby’s inclination towards unbridled, deviant sex acts with numerous women and his subsequent fall from grace once the women began speaking out and filing charges. This aspect can also deal with having to pay out large sums of money as a way to quiet some of the women making these allegations.

Lilith in Sagittarius trine Saturn in Aries

This aspect between Lilith and Saturn could give Cosby the motivation to sexually assault women since Saturn is in Aries and this placement can deal with overcompensating for a lack of masculinity. This could certainly be true for Cosby since he has a great deal of feminine energy in his chart (Sun, Mercury, Pluto in Cancer, Moon in Virgo, Mars in Scorpio). Also, as mentioned previously, his professional status greatly enabled him to live out his deviant sexual desires.

Lilith in Sagittarius trine Pluto in Cancer

This aspect can certainly point to sexual proclivities that border or center on overpowering women. This aspect could also enable him to engage in these deviant activities without being detected. Furthermore, since Pluto deals with prominence, Cosby’s celebrity status also facilitated his ability to engage in criminal behavior and remain untouchable. As of today, Bill Cosby has never been criminally charged for the acts that over 20 women have alleged he committed.

A Few Other Points

In terms of Chaldean numerology, Bill Cosby is a 12 which means Sacrifice/Victim. 12 also breaks down to 3 which has the same vibration as the planet Jupiter. Thus, one could say that Cosby suffers from a God/Zeus complex and women have been victimized (allegedly) in the process. 3 is prone to excess and as stated above a sizable number of women have came forward with these allegations. Furthermore, Bill Cosby’s North Node is in Sagittarius which means that in this lifetime he has to try to live a life of temperance, high morals, and faith. The flipside of these Sagittarian virtues are excess, wantonness, a lack of discipline and over-indulgence so he could really go either way; it’s his choice. With Cosby’s South Node being in Gemini, the hardest South Node of all, he most likely faced constant temptation to do wrong even though he knew better. His immediate environment as well as his close associations could have fueled his predacious drive.

Summary

The purpose of this post was to show the planetary energies at work that could have enabled Bill Cosby to commit the sexually deviant acts in which he has been accused. A natal chart cannot indicate whether a person is actually guilty or innocent. However, it can show the propensities, tendencies and motivations of the particular individual in question. I believe that Bill Cosby’s natal chart does show that he is very capable of committing the crime of drugging women in order to take advantage of them sexually. The proof is in the astrological pudding if one knows where to look.

Relationship Compatibility: Start with Thyself

black men are not the problem to black women today

When it comes to relationships most people want to achieve the social ideal which is to enter into a marriage or a lifelong commitment. When it comes to determining relationship compatibility it’s important to establish what kind of relationship person you are. Being aware of your relationship needs can save you a great deal of heartache and pain. One of the best ways to discover your ideal relationship dynamic is to get a natal chart interpretation.

I do not believe in the notion that everyone is relationship-oriented nor do I believe that everyone is destined to enter into a long-term fulfilling relationship. I also do not believe in the common assertion that there is someone for everyone. Some people are destined to go through life as a single person due to where they are at on the spectrum of spiritual evolution. On the other hand, others are destined to experience the bond that comes with marriage or a life partnership. This does not mean that the latter is more spiritually evolved than the former, however. It all boils down to what is needed for a particular individual’s spiritual evolution.

Either a person is relationship-oriented or he/she is not. According to my definition, a relationship-oriented person will be able to remain in one relationship for an extended period of time—usually spanning over 7 years. I designate 7 years as the baseline since it reflects the 7-year cycle of Saturn (28 years/4), the planet of time, commitment, responsibility and longevity. Thus, if a person can remain in one relationship for 7 or more years you can generally consider that person to be relationship-oriented. Keep in mind that when I refer to the term “relationship-oriented”, I am referring to a long-term, harmonious and monogamous commitment or marriage.

Certain astrological configurations can determine whether a person will be relationship-oriented (in the traditional, long-term monogamous sense) or not. For instance one or more of the following aspects may be present in a person’s chart who is NOT relationship-oriented:

Sun conjunct Uranus

Moon square Sun

Moon opposition Saturn

Moon square Pluto

Moon square Uranus

Venus square Saturn

Venus square Uranus

Venus conjunct Uranus

Mars square Venus

Mars opposition Venus

Usually, people with these aspects will still try to go against their own grain, attempting to fit a square peg into a round hole even if it’s just about keeping up with the Jones’s. These are the kinds of people who you will find in multiple short-term relationships that usually last no longer than 3 years. Their relationships are often not clearly defined and they may be filled with a great deal of turmoil. You may find that this kind of person falls in and out of love very easily. They may also not give much prior thought when it comes to choosing a mate, but they may also bemoan the fact that true love eludes them. They do not realize that the relationship model that works for some people is not designed to work for them. Perhaps, they have been told by ex-partners that they are self-absorbed, inconsiderate and afraid of commitment. For some this may be true, but for others they may simply be misunderstood.

Some individuals who have some of these astrological aspects are very self-aware and consciously make it a point not to become too attached. For example, I know of a man who is 55 years old, has never been married and does not have any kids. This man has even said that he could go another 10 years before he settles down with one woman. He has Moon opposition Saturn, Venus square Mars, Sun conjunct Uranus and Moon semisquare Sun in his natal chart. His brother tells him that he is destined to be a perpetual bachelor. Any woman who tries to subjugate this kind of man will end up becoming bald from pulling her hair out in frustration.

If a woman is aware that she is not relationship-oriented she may be met with criticism if she chooses to proclaim this truth. In this present day society it is far more acceptable for a man to be perpetually single than a woman. If a woman tells her friends or family members that she does not want to be in a long-term relationship she is met with sighs and comments like “you’ll find someone, don’t give up” “you just haven’t found the right one” or “your guy is out there somewhere”. Women either face pressure or pity when it comes to being single for more than 5 years straight.

It appears that more people—especially men are waking up to the reality that a marriage or life partnership is not the ideal for everyone. It would seem that the most heartache and pain occurs when one person who is relationship-oriented couples up with a person who is not. The problem is that the person who is not relationship-oriented is usually unaware that they are wired this way so they blame the other person and go in search of someone new only to wind up in the same lonely predicament. However, loneliness no longer becomes this looming threat once the person acknowledges that they are not relationship-oriented. Better choices in terms of truly compatible potential mates can then be made.

So much drama could be prevented if people knew what kind of relationship-type person they were before attempting to commit to another. Self-awareness is the first step in creating fulfilling relationships—whether they are short or long in duration.

Relationships: Fate, Destiny and Astrological Aspects

chakra lovers

As a spiritual advisor I often receive questions regarding love, relationships, soul mates, etc. This should come as no surprise given the fact that most people have hopes and ambitions of finding a life partner. What most people do not realize and what I try to convey is that we all come into this life with predisposed inclinations toward a particular kind of relationship and partner. This is most evident by the examination of one’s natal chart. The relationship patterns indicated in the chart are hard-wired into the psyche and these patterns will manifest in some way through the outside world. For instance, a person born with their Venus in tight square, opposition, quincunx or sesquisquare with Uranus will more often than not have a difficult time forming a long-term commitment (The conjunction can also produce this effect in some people as well). On the other hand, it may be very easy for this same person to enter into many short-term relationships or flings. In fact, the latter may certainly contribute to the former since the native when in a committed relationship will often be tempted to stray through the ease of forming of new friendships and associations. Men in particular will have a very difficult time with monogamy and commitment with Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus for it is too easy for them to meet new lovers. Now if the Venus/Uranus native is determined to have a long-term commitment the vibration of this aspect will still be present and it is likely to manifest in one or more of the following ways:

  • Great compromises to be made in the name of maintaining one or both of the partners’ level of independence and individuality.
  • Being in a very unique or unconventional relationship/marriage such as marrying cousins or a polyamorous union.
  • A relationship that is fraught with sudden upsets, break ups and a great deal of unpredictability yet somehow the couple manages to stay together long-term.
  • A sexless or emotionally vapid marriage/partnership
  • A marriage or partnership that results in a total upheaval of one’s life–whether for good or bad.

Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus applies to Synastry/Compatibility charts as well and the dynamic may even be more pronounced depending on the tightness of the aspect. A tight opposition between one partner’s Venus and the other’s Uranus for instance can indicate a short romance that begins with a bang and comes to a sudden halt. Now this Venus/Uranus configuration may be able to be overcome entirely once the native achieves spiritual evolution or at least a full understanding of their Divinely-inspired purpose. However, this is still quite rare even in this present day. Most people go through life seeking a fulfilling relationship not being aware of the inherent challenges and limitations unique to their fate. Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus or any aspect for that matter is the Fate, Destiny is what you choose to do with those aspects. Thus, Destiny can be altered at any time, albeit within the parameters of Fate (natal chart aspects).

It would seem that most people do not want to do the work that comes along with creating your Destiny as far as relationships are concerned. Most people just want to step into a “turn-key” relationship. This is a relationship that is ready-made that requires little to no effort. Only certain people will be afforded the luxury of a turn-key relationship. Yes, some people are just lucky in love or you can view it as an accumulation of good relationship karma. These fortunate folks establish the model that others aspire to. You can also call the turn-key relationship a “fairytale romance”. When people fall short of achieving this turn-key relationship, they become dejected not realizing that they’ve been given a different kind of Fate.

This brings me back to the readings I do for people. I always try to help my clients understand the underlying reasons for why they face such hardship in love and relationships. I take it back to the source which in my opinion is the natal chart. I don’t just address the symptoms. I get down to the root cause and this often leads me to the topic of past lives/reincarnation. Knowledge of Self is paramount when it comes to understanding why we are drawn to certain types of people and certain kinds of relationships. For those who are blessed with the ease of a turn-key relationship, more power to you. For the rest of us, relationships may be the process by which we achieve self-discovery and self-actualization through the mirror that is one’s significant other.

Ego Trip Up

thCAXR204JOne of the hardest things about being a Sagittarius is the propensity to be overzealous. The saying “fools rush in” is so apropos to my current situation. I made a foolish decision on impulse a few weeks ago and now it has come back to haunt me. Oh how I wish I could turn back the hands of time on this one. Regret however is as futile as worry. Both will prevent you from moving forward.

So now I must work to rectify this situation if it can even be salvaged at this point. First things first: I must move beyond the regret, shame, and embarrassment. I am allowed to make mistakes and I’m learning from this one because I don’t ever want to relive such an experience again.

My ego is the primary cause of this blunder. I was already aware that my ego has no place in my spiritual work. When I do allow my ego to take the reins I lose. It may not be this way for others on the Path, but it’s been this way for me—always. My Saturn is in Leo, the sign of the ego and Saturn is the planet that metes out punishment. My karma is wrapped up in my ego orientation so whenever I give my power over to the ego instant karma ensues. I could blame it on my recent transits, Jupiter opposition my Sun and Neptune, Neptune making a quincunx to my Saturn and the whole Uranian moxie  thing (Saturn and Venus conjunct Uranus, Solar Arc Uranus conjunct my natal Sun). I can tell myself that my conservative and cautious Capricorn Moon called out from work that fateful day. In actuality however, I should have known better. When I act on behalf of my ego I often get spanked and that’s what happened today—on my birthday.

I take this as a hard lesson in humility and patience. In my attempt to control the outcome of a situation I lost control of my Self. Now I sit here in a state of bewilderment not knowing exactly how to proceed from here. In the process of trying to accomplish a personal goal I lost sight of my spiritual ethos.

In true Sagittarian fashion I have already picked myself up, dusted myself off and I am ready to embody the spirit of the Chariot. Now that the illusory fog has cleared and I have sobered up from being in an emotional stupor I can view this situation from another vantage point. I acted in desperation which should never be the case for a person on the Path. Desperate times call for delicate, not desperate measures. I see this clearly now.

NAMASTE

Uranian Moxie

It’s funny how a few transits can usher in radical change—especially when Uranus is in the mix. Saturn and Venus have conjoined with my natal Uranus in just 7 days. As a result, I have undergone some significant change especially in the area of personal relationships. When a planet or one of the lights (Sun, Moon) interacts with Uranus, things can come to an abrupt halt followed by an exciting new beginning. Sometimes this exciting new beginning precedes the ending of the existing situation prompting a quick demise of the old. This is what is occurring in my life right now. Venus landing on Uranus in its most literal sense can deal with ending an old relationship and starting something new. Uranus is the planet of separatism, but also extreme magnetism.

Uranus in the planet of truth so it makes sense that it has little tolerance for bullshit. Uranus can smell a line of crap from a mile away—especially when in the sign of Scorpio, of which my natal Uranus is. I have just entered the sowing phase of a new relationship which is radically different than the one I just ended. This possibility of a new love has blindsided me for I like to think of myself as being highly independent and not in need of a partner (my natal Uranus is conjunct my Midheaven and square to Saturn in the 7th). In fact, I was blindsided by the relationship I just ended when it was in the sowing phase. Back then, transiting Mars had landed on my Uranus. The current situation, I did not see coming. That’s how Uranus works. It’s the planet of surprise, shock, and the unexpected. Uranus will also give a person balls of steel to do something bold; an urge that the person might try to suppress normally. Subtlety is not in Uranus’s vocabulary. Transits involving Uranus will cause the native to throw caution to the wind and attempt to break any barriers standing in the way of the will to be, do, or say whatever he or she intends without fear of derision or reprisal. It’s the “my way or the highway” planet.

So time will tell (Uranus has no use for time, that’s Saturn’s domain) if the seeds of this potential union will sprout. Most likely I’ll know for sure by la fin de semana.

In the meantime, I’ll play the role of the hermit, patiently waiting for the aftermath of my Uranian moxie. With Venus now in my 10th house, love and relationship becomes my ambition. There’s a good chance that seeds will grow into something beautiful.

On another note, Venus landing on my Uranus also brought the suprise of unexpected money. I won $100 from playing the lottery. Surprise, surprise!
