Uranus Stations Direct In Taurus Jan 14, 2021
Soooooo.... here we are 2 whole weeks into 2021. I don't know about you, but I have felt hopeful one second and then completely shocked at what I see on the news and on social media in the next. It's like every time I turn around there is a new WTF going on.
There are changes happening all over the world, and in our own homes with what feels like a sucker punch. Catching you off guard and unprepared. This my dear Mystic, is the hallmark of Uranus's energy. This distant social planet loves nothing more than to catch us by surprise, and I'm sure my dear Mystic that you can agree this past year has been full of sudden shocks and astonishments.
Now more than ever, we as a global community, are being tested and checked for the tenacity to pursue new ways of society. Over the entire globe, all over the world, it has become stunningly clear that humanity's resources come into focus. Because of this, it is important for us to take stock of what we truly care about. What our specific values are, who we are as human beings who share the planet, nations, cities, towns and households. Who are we now and who do we really wish to be?
So let's break this down a little bit more.
Every planet in our solar system with the exception of Earth will go into apparent retrograde motion... or look like it is moving backwards compared to its normal path through the sky. When a planet goes retrograde, its normal energy alters. Instead of the energy of the planet flowing easily and radiating unobstructed... it moves a lot like water trying to pass through a hair-clogged drain. It doesn't move "well" it has a level of resistance that makes it hard for the planet to express its energy.
So, that energy affects us humans, by turning our attention inward. We are guided into those internal spaces where our truest selves reside. It is when we come into contact with the most essential self that we have to then "sort our SHIT".
Uranus is an odd and excentric planet, I often compare it to the electrical genius, Nicola Tesla. He, much like our buddy Uranus was obsessed with all things electric and experimented with it.
Additionally, like Uranus, we were a man possessed of a humanitarian genius. He wanted all of humanity to benefit from his innovations. He was unusual, brilliant and altruistic. These are all things associated with Uranus. Tesla was also known to be... weird... like really weird. He fostered several habits that sidelined him as an odd duck. In fact, in the later years of his life he "married a pigeon" having been quoted as saying that he loved his little bird as a man love a woman.... Ummm ok?
In any event, you can see that the energy of Uranus changes things, suddenly with lightning and the clang of symbols and gongs! These changes are impossible to ignore.
Now, put your cake down and let's take a minute to look more closely at the energy of Taurus. Energetically, Taurus has a very stabilizing influence. It is methodical, slow and meticulous. It is by definition, an energy that is determined and deliberate. Taurus rules the second hose that is in many ways associated with all material things. Things that are tangible, things that we feel we own. This includes actual physical possessions like your car, your home, your clothes and even your own body. The second house is also concerned with your values! The things you believe in which give you a sense of ownership over your life and the circumstances of your environment. Any way you slice it, Taurus wants to be comfortable in a nice house with lots of food, no debt and above everything else SECURITY!
All in all, when you combine Taurus's requirement for security and Uranus's tendency to instigate sudden change, you can see how this relationship can be a bit challenging.
However, this energy has actually been pretty good... you know in the same way that ripping off an old icky band-aide is good. It's scary, it's gonna hurt, but
once it's done you can see the full extent of what you need to heal. Sooooo, here we go!
Now if you haven't noticed, we have been called to task not just by the circumstances we are faced within our individual lives, but en masse. The whole damn world (Uranus is a transpersonal planet, affects EVERYONE) has literally and figuratively had to cast its vote for what we feel best represents who we are as human beings.
This has come through to us as one slap in the face after the next. Not one, but several calls to action. I think there was a young woman who scolded the entire world at one point, stating fiercely ...."YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!" Whether you personally believe in environmental changes or not, quite frankly it doesn't matter.... because there are enough people who do. And, because of this, changes to how we live on this planet have been demanded of us. We must change, like it or not.
And... to be totally transparent... I think that even if you don't see any evidence (baaa hah ahh ah aaahh) of these environmental changes, what's wrong with being more careful with our resources? What's wrong with trying to live more cleanly? After all, do YOU shit where you eat? Jus' sayin'.
This is Uranus in Taurus Retrograde in action. Your security of thought, belief and literally your life is being openly challenged. You, me, and everyone else have had to re-assess what it means to feel like we have enough of everything we need in order to continue our lives. We have had to go inward - courtesy of Covid-19 - and ask some really critical questions about what we own, what we need and who we are. We have become more reliant on technology (Uranus rules tech) as it has now become our lifeline to all which we believe makes us secure. Ordering groceries (food = Taurus), working from home, going to school or even communicating with loved ones are all being done remotely, and BOY are we feeling it.
How many times have you thought to yourself... gee, I've taken all of my freedoms, all of my loved ones, all of the easy access I used to have to things that ensure my security... for GRANTED!!??
See that is you looking inward (retrograde) at what you value (Taurus). And the list goes on... and on, and on.
Now that Uranus is stationed direct, things are going to shift yet again. The drain (remember the one I mentioned earlier) is unclogging. Energy is going to begin to move more directly and dynamically. So, in response to this my sweet Mystic, you get to answer some of the following questions -
How do I feel about the state of our environment?
How do I feel about my country?
How do you I about my Government?
How do I feel about my body?
Do I need all this shit I ordered from Amazon?
Do I need to change how I look at my spouse, children and aged family members?
Am I really, truly secure?
And let me tell ya, the answer isn't a nod of your head. It's not a statement or a social media post. It is in your actions. It is how you demonstrate your values through your behaviour and actions. It's not enough to declare your feelings and set your intentions... no darling, you have to act in alignment with the truth! There is no room for bullshit, no room for anything other than what you are ready to OWN!
It's time for your own INNER REVOLUTION! Change bravely and seek a better world.
Be brave, I'm with you. I'm having to adapt my angle of approach too. I'm pivoting my behaviour and the things I stand for and against, same as you. We are all in this together. (don't you roll your eyes at me! HAHAHAHAA)
All my love!
Uranus retrograde is a regular cycle lasting 155 days each year in which the planet moves four degrees in reverse through the zodiac. Retrogrades are a time of inner change in response to external changes in your life.
