This is a week of intensifying pressure. Uranus, the planet of
enlightenment, disruption, innovation, and genius, is at the final
degree of Aries. Uranus is about to end an eight year cycle of
transiting in Aries and is about to enter the fixed earth sign of Taurus
on May 15, 2018 at 7:48 AM EDT.
Until then, Uranus is at the
critical and final degree of the Cardinal fire sign of Aries, and this
is a very explosive and unpredictable energy. Uranus initially entered
Aries on May 29, 2010 and was there through August 15, 2010 when it
returned to finish up its journey in the sign of Pisces. Uranus
re-entered Aries on March 12, 2011 where it has been ever since. Now
you are starting a new story in your life with Uranus changing signs for
first time in eight years, and you are closing things you began in 2010
Uranus in Aries has been the "Era of Selfies", which
is not surprising since Aries rules the self, independence, ego,
autonomy, and action particularly when self interest is involved.
Uranus rules technology, innovation, networking, Social Media,
organizations, groups, surprise, the unexpected, chaos, and
There has been a huge emphasis on connecting
through Social Media since 2011 where businesses and many others have
found ways to build their own autonomous industries through connecting
through various ways using Social Media as a means of promotion. It is
interesting that at the end of Uranus transiting in Aries people are
worried about their individual information being compromised and in
losing important connections that exceed the remote confines of a mobile
Each of us is finishing up his or her journey of
Uranus in Aries in whatever house or area of the chart the final
degrees of Aries lies. The Taurus house is now getting lit up in your
chart, and Uranus in Taurus is going to bring a whole new shift of
energy in that area where you will be creating, planting, and growing
new things in your life.
Venus rules the sign of Taurus, which
is an earth sign that deals with beauty, growth, plants, trees, and
mother earth, Taurus rules things of value, and what matters. I feel
people will stop being so self obsessed on Social Media and return to
connecting in real time and through nature.
On Friday, May 11,
2018, there is a beautiful and enabling trine between Pluto, the planet
of transformation and empowerment, at 21 degree of Capricorn; as well as
the Sun, which represents self and ego, at 21 degrees of Taurus. This
is a very powerful and lucky influence. This is a great day to set
intentions, get things accomplished, and partner with others.
Over the weekend, there is some unpredictable but exciting energy.
Mercury, the planet of ideas and information, is at the final degrees of
Aries. It forms a challenging square to Mars on May 12, 2018 which can
be combative and fiery; however, it is great for quick mental energy and
coming up with ideas.
Add a whole other layer to this when The
Moon in Aries over the weekend forms a quick jolt with a tough square
to Mars on May 12, 2018 at 12:31 pm EDT and then conjoins Uranus, the
planet of epiphanies and surprises, at 2:05 pm EDT when the moon goes
The moon enters Taurus on 2:15 pm EDT, but there is a lot
of Aries energy still rampant, as Mercury also joins up with Uranus on
May 13, 2018 at 2:05 pm EDT and provides incredible insights that come
out-of-the-blue. This is a brilliant and unusual pairing where it is
excellent to brainstorm and meditate. Uranus is the higher octave of
Mercury, and it provides illumination.
Uranus rules electricity
and technology, and the energy can feel super charged and anxious. It
is important to find times to recharge in next couple of weeks.
There is strong Uranian energy getting lit up by the Moon in Aries and
Mercury in Aries, and this gives us a foreshadowing of all of the
changes that Uranus is going to trigger in our lives when it changes
signs on May 15, 2018. This is a time for a lot of growth and
creativity, but your value system and what you care to possess may
change radically in the next eight years. This is a time to open your
mind to what is of value and reconnect with nature.
