Mars-Uranus Unexpected Twists in Store

Uncategorized Jul 09, 2024

Mt Etna erupting. A shock French election result. The UK Labour government reversal of fortune.

Many of the recent major news events have been surprising and unexpected or have an erratic quality to them which correlates to the coming
 Mars-Uranus conjunction at 26 Taurus, exact July 15. The recent Neptune station retrograde at 29 Pisces also figures in the sweeping quality of these historic events, however, I sense Uranus as the catalyst for the unexpected.

On a personal level, ever since Uranus entered Taurus in 2019, this part of our chart has felt a lot less secure and stable. Those who have Taurus personal planets know what I'm talking about, there's no room for complacency when Uranus, the Great Awakener, insists you get up to speed.

Mars already appears to be igniting the chaotic Uranian energy and when they come together, we'll likely be in for more earthquakes and surprises. Mars in Taurus is likened to a bull, not quick to get moving but when it does get going it's determined to go the distance.

We may have the sudden urge to break free from situations that have become stagnant and limiting. Some may even risk the sense of security for a bold urge to try something new and enlivening. Taurus is associated with pleasure and creativity, so taking action on creative breakthroughs is in the cards.

Just a few days prior to the conjunction on July 11 is a Sun-Saturn trine which tends to suggest a harmonious relationship to Saturnian authority and discipline. However, Saturn is retrograde which often indicates reclaiming one's own personal authority and instilling self discipline rather than depending on an external sources.

Look back to April 17-21 when Jupiter conjoined Uranus at 21 Taurus for insight into the seeds of opportunities for growth, freedom and creative change opening up in your life. 

Jupiter is currently activating the Lunar Nodes offering expansive change. What opportunities do you now have to take action on that long-term expansive vision?

Cosmic blessings,
