Uranus in Taurus: "Be Careful What You Wish For"

May 21, 2018
Approximately every seven years, the planet Uranus changes signs and ushers in a new energetic cycle.

From 2011 up until last week, the Planet Uranus, which rules radical & progressive thoughts, technology, invention, sudden flashes of genius, and where we rebel in life, had been in Aries, the sign of physical aggression, war and "the individual self".  

On May 15th, on the day the New Moon was conjunct Caput Algol (the beheaded demon), the planet Uranus moved into it's least favorite sign, Taurus. 

Every planet has certain signs which they thrive in, and others...not so much.

Uranus, unfortunately, does not do so well in the sign Taurus.

Uranus is the energy of electricity.  It is volatile and unpredictable.  Uranus is about being progressive, opening our minds, ushering in change in the form of technology and scientific advances.

Conversely, Taurus is the energy of pure Earth.  Taurus values tradition and does not like to let go of the past. It is about being still and being grounded. It is about being comfortable and avoiding change.  Taurus energy will stay in a bad situation just to avoid change, sometimes.

But why is this so bad?  If Uranus is electricity, maybe Taurus can harness and ground that energy?

That would be a very positive manifestation of Uranus in Taurus: To harness that electric energy of invention and create something tangible.  And that is the most positive manifestation of that energy.

However, it's possible if we aren't clear on what our values are, this energy can manifest into a "Be careful what you wish for" scenario.

The energy of the planet Uranus rules our radical thoughts as well as our "hopes and wishes" on a larger scale, while Taurus rules what is truly valuable and important to us.

Uranus is intangible sudden flashes of ideas, and Taurus can turn those ideas into something tangible.

The trouble starts if we aren't clear on what is truly important to us. What are those radical thoughts?  Would they be good for society or destructive if manifested into reality?

Uranus rules fanaticism and radical groups.  We can see this happening in the political world, as more and more radical groups are coming out of the shadows, and attempting to manifest their "values" onto the rest of society.  

In this case, it is more important than ever that we learn from our past. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was from 1934-1942. What "radical values" manifested physically during that time?

One radical belief during that time, was the belief in a "superior race". This could have remained a radical idea that stayed in people's heads.  However, Taurus manifested those "values" into the physical form of the holocaust.  It went from a radical thought, to physically attempting to eliminate those who did not fit the definition of "superior race", by those who defined it based on their radical values.

Now, Uranus in Taurus does't have to be all doom and gloom.  Some of the more positive manifestations which were brought to us by Uranus in Taurus were:

  • The invention of the Electric Guitar (Uranus=electricity, Taurus=music)
  • The invention of the Richter Scale 
  • The invention of the first digital computer in 1937
  • The invention of nylon pantyhose (Uranus=manmade material, Taurus=beauty/fashion)
  • The first microwave oven in 1947
Another thing which happened the last time Uranus was in Taurus was the beginning of the modern Women's Right's movement.

In 1936, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that medical literature about birth control was considered "obscene". 

Women had this radical idea that they should be able to decide for themselves whether or not they were ready to start a family.  Women began the fight for reproductive rights during this time, and it still wasn't legal for married couples to obtain birth control nationwide until 1965.

Uranus is "radical ideas", Taurus is related to Venus, the sign that rules females and fertility.

In our personal lives, it is really important that we spend the next seven years clearly defining what is valuable to us.  Because whatever radical inventive ideas we have going on in our minds, we have the possibility to manifest them into reality.

So, be careful what you wish for while Uranus is in Taurus!

Realistic Optimism: Full Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter Goes Direct, Saturn in Sagittarius...

June 7, 2017

It’s been an active year so far, with the focus still on Saturn in Sagittarius, where it will be until December 21st.  That means, we have a just half a year left to conquer our Saturn in Sagittarius energy!


The Full Moon in Sagittarius on Friday June 9th is shining another spot light on Saturn.  Saturn is such an important planet. It represents all that is tangible, real, and solid.  Wherever Saturn goes, we are asked to create a tangible structure, and healthy, realistic boundaries.  Satu...

Mars conjunct Uranus Opposing Jupiter Retrograde AND New Moon Eclipse in Pisces

February 26, 2017
Jupiter is still retrograde in Libra, asking us to re-evaluate the "big picture" of relationships, and now he's opposing the Mars and Uranus conjuction, all on the same day of the new moon solar eclipse in confusing Pisces.

Does that sound like a lot?

It is!  

And while this energy may not feel very inspiring in a positive way, positive change is still possible if we nurture and continue to focus on developing our empathy for others, and working on our compassionate sides.  

It may sound like an...

Jupiter Retrograde in Libra: Re-evaluating the "big picture" and finding balance

February 7, 2017

From January 8th until February 5th, we experienced a rare short period in time when all the planets were moving direct.
The Universe allowed you to go full speed ahead, whether you were ready for it or not!  

But, now it is "re-evaluation time" once again, as Jupiter, the planet of prosperity, open-mindedness, optimism, travel, and good fortune turned retrograde on Sunday February 5th at 23 degrees Libra, the sign of balance, relationships, marriages, business deals, diplomacy, contracts, pe...

Just Ask Ptolemy...Your Astrological Sign Has NOT Changed!

September 24, 2016
Every five years or so, there is an astrological panic on my social media walls. This year, a blog shared by George Takei stating that NASA has redefined our zodiac signs caused this panic to resurface... 

"OMG, I'm not a Virgo anymore?"
"But I don't FEEL like a Scorpio!"
"Yay! I always wanted to be an Aquarius!"
"Oh, screw that. I am still a Sagittarius."
"See? Astrology is fake!" 
"You mean I was never a Leo??" 
And now...
"NASA changed my zodiac sign!!"

"I'm just here to ruin the fun! (Insert e...

Mercury Retrograde in the Middle of a Bunch of Virgo

September 1, 2016
Mercury went retrograde at the last degree (29) of Virgo on Tuesday, August 30th.  And this morning, there was a New Moon eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo. 

All this Virgo energy supports re-organizing the details of our lives.  We need to be diligent with our diet, exercise, housekeeping and budgeting routines in order to have the time and money we need to live the lives we want to live, and to live "our truth".

The original meaning of Virgo is "A woman owned by no man."  In modern day translation,...

Mars Trines a Stellium of Planets in Cancer: Sun, Mercury, Venus...

July 7, 2016
Three planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus) in "I just want to stay in bed and eat bonbons" Cancer. Plus, the Moon is void of course in "I just wanna have fun" Leo. Procrastination much? Don't worry. The moon will go into Virgo soon enough tonight, and you will feel inclined to get stuff done again.

In general, we are getting a small break from the challenging energy which will still be forcing us to transform until the end of September.  But for now, we have a little lazy comfort.  Relax for n...

Mars Goes Direct, but We are Still Under the Influence of Scorpio...

June 29, 2016
This astrologer has admittedly been hiding under a rock since about March.  No doubt, you have felt it, too! 

2016 has turned out to be a year full of re-arranging and transforming.  We are being challenged by the Universe to become the strongest, greatest, and best versions of ourselves, and it hasn't been easy.

While It's not completely over yet, today, we get a little break as Mars finally goes direct this evening at 23 degrees Scorpio.  The last time Mars was at this degree was February 18...

Lunar Eclipse 3-23-2016 Balancing the individual soul with the Universal Soul...

March 22, 2016

The Lunar eclipse on Wednesday March 23rd takes place in the signs Aries and Libra:  Finding the balance between being independent and respecting ourselves as individuals, while still living with, loving, and respecting the needs of others...

...As well as respecting the fact that we need others.

Eclipse energy, even when positive, can feel jarring and disorienting. 

Uranus will be rising on the East Coast during the peak of the eclipse, meaning many of us will be having some "Eureka"-style, in...
