Putting this in basic astrology. I assume many people know but for the record: planets are stationary when they are about to change direction, direct or retrograde. They are considered more potent at these turning points.
Uranus turns retrograde today...
Uranus stations, turning retrograde today and will remain retrograde until January 18th, 2022. During this cycle, our desire to make changes in our lives can turn inward as we get in touch with what may be holding us back from living more spontaneously and authentically. We may be less overtly rebellious and more inclined to follow the rules. As the shift occurs this week, however, Uranian energy can feel challenging, and we can experience some tension until we acclimatize to the energy.
I experienced heavy Uranian energy quite dramatically last night with unusually loud thunder and persistent, close-range lightning. I mean my yard was lighting up outside the windows for quite a while, an hour at least. So that was fun.
I actually am fascinated with lightening and thunder, I mean I am fascinated, but also having a lot of awe of it and even bit scared. I know its power of potential destruction, but still so beautiful to watch, at least when you are inside and not in any danger of being struck.
Hope you are okay.
Hmm, I wonder how far Uranus will retreat. But I suppose, it WILL get back to squaring my pr Sun, and doing so in not too long (pr Sun on 13 Aqua). Hmm, oh of course that means Tr Uranus will also make another round of opposing pr and natal composite Uranus on 12 Scorpio, and pr composite Mars on 11 Scorpio and pr compoiste Sun on 11 Aqua and opposing pr composite Uranus on 13 Scorpio.
and now I wonder when it hit that the first time round and if there was anything manifesting, or if it just faded by. WEll basically our composite is in its midlife crisis it seems. 😂 I mean they say Tr Uranus opposite n Uranus (along with some other big outer transits, signal midlife and usually midlife crisis stuff).
Not going to lie, in particular the accuracy of the last two ones, the oppositions to itself, and the days related to that, is pretty startling.
the square and opposition to Sun and Mars also connects to some specific events, but not in the same league in my opinion as the last two ones. Those were really interesting and yes, lightening-moments. hmm.
18th june: Tr Uranus square MY pc Sun on 13 Aqua (just picked the exact date, obviously it was in partile square for some time longer)
at some point Tr Uranus was or is going to be opposing my pr Moon in Scorpio as well, not sure when though.
31st march: Tr Uranus square HIS pc Sun on 9 Aqua 4th april: Tr Uranus conjunct HIS pc Chiron on 9 Taurus
okay, checked it and now wondering about that....
Tr Uranus squares pc Sun (13 Aqua) in october Tr Uranus opposes pc Moon (12 Scorpio) in november pc Moon squares pc Sun on 13 Scorpio- Aqua in december
You meant build up, lumina ? Well if the progressed composite is heading into sun square moon, and transiting Uranus t-squares that, it does look unsettling somehow. Might be energizing, though. I mean pc moon is conjunct your moon, and that's the apex of the t-square.
I was laughing to read this a minute ago:
Mercury forms a trine to Uranus this morning, encouraging inventiveness. With this mind-opening aspect, we seek answers that are not the most obvious ones, and we can get to some exciting places on a mental level now. We're expressing ourselves in different or unique ways rather than falling back on old habits of thinking and communicating, and it's successful. Conversations can be gently provocative, leading to new ideas and perspectives. Insights or creative ideas come suddenly, unexpectedly, and brilliantly.
Musing: hope it's okay to do, even if it's not right on topic.
I never really payed attention to pr composite to progressed natals.
However it makes actually sense to me that sometimes there would be overlays.
After all our current development affects how we connect with others. And changes or developments from inside the relationship affect us on a personal level.
With progressed natals more temporary of course, like opening a portal? A crossing in time.
Overlays to natal might implement an effect thst is more fundamental.
Just blurting out thoughts.
So back to topic now.
. I feel elated. What is that? Feel like I am 15 or so. Where has the heaviness gone to? It was still here two days ago. Pretty sure it's gonna be back sooner than I like, but this minute, this moment feels positively electrified, almost like being.... In love. Not thst I could even remember the feeling, it's been too long, and there is not really anyone around to be in love with...
I blame it on uranus, some of his craziness.
Maybe it's not really like being in love but feeling alive?
Also just after waking up scrolling through tiktok, stumbling across a video and it had me laughing out loud several times. Can't remember the last time that happened. So na, be thats just that.
Maybe it's just a hormonal imbalance and a sign to worry, really. Lol no not thst bsd just a weird mood shift, for once to the better, and just enjoying the 5 minutes it's going to last most likely. 😅
No I posted a few hours before my new lunar return.
Interesting g about the 10 taurus. It's an important area for the composite. And some other stuff.
Cool asteroids to have there, though I did not really delve into them. Well Hera and Demeter are the Greek version of juno and ceres, and never sure bout the difference in interpretation. Or if they are the same.
A soothsayer in a teen clothing store once demanded to hold my hands (before Covid) and look into my soul to discern which god or goddess I was connected to, and she proclaimed me "Demeter and Zeus." Yes I am holding onto that. lol
Upcoming stations all close in time:
Oct 6 - Pluto direct @ 24 Cap Oct 8 - Ceres Rx @ 12 Gem Oct 10 - Saturn direct @ 6 Aqua Oct 18 - Jupiter direct @ 22 Aqua Oct 18 - Mercury direct @ 10 Libra (Rx begins Sept 27)
Uranus stations and turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, and Uranus energy hangs heavy in the air this week, with related themes dominating. As the planet gains speed in the next few weeks, our urge to express our unique self, take some chances or risks, rebel, listen to our instincts, and stir up change are reawakened or externalized.
