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 an 2011.
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 enlightenment.
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 phone screen.
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 void.
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.
