Uranus in Taurus until 2026 — A New Vision for the Earth

On May 15th, 2018, Uranus will move into Taurus; it will journey through that sign for almost 8 years, until April 26th, 2026 — with the exception of a retrograde period that will temporarily return it to Aries from Nov. 6th, 2018, to March 6th, 2019.

Whenever a planet moves into a new sign, it’s a good idea to look back at the last time it made that transit — to quote Mark Twain, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes” — things obviously won’t go exactly the same, but we can expect a certain resonance or similarity. Uranus is an outer planet that takes a long time to go around the Sun; the last time it moved through Taurus was between June 1934 and May 1942; before that, it was from July 1850 – March 1859.

Before we look at those periods of history, let’s talk briefly about the themes of Uranus in Taurus, so we can spot those “rhymes” if they occur. What can we expect when disruptive Uranus moves through earthy Taurus? Well, for one thing, it would be wise to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and relaxed with being surprised.

If we were only allowed one word to describe what Uranus does, it would be “disruption”. It’s all about progress, change — but not necessarily gradual, continuous amendment of the old — this is more like breaking down and uprooting the “old” structures.

This is the planet of “vision”, and like all visionaries, it favors a revolution as the quickest way to realize the “ideal future state”. It moves toward more freedom — you could say the higher vibration of Uranus seeks freedom for all, while a lower vibration says “I need to be free to do what I want, and the hell with you”.

Uranus listens to a higher calling — a Divine Mind — and can thus be detached from emotion and “human feeling”. Depending on the vision being pursued, this can be highly beneficial, or very dangerous.

Uranus urges everyone to wake up and smell the coffee, then join together to make coffee like the world has never seen and make sure that nobody ever has to drink mediocre coffee ever again.

Some Uranian keywords: Technology, Innovation, Discovery, Novelty, Ingenuity, Originality, and Astrology.

Uranus has two major modes: Reactive and Intuitive. Look over that list of keywords again and notice how those modes would play out for each one — “reactive” would lead pretty much every time to harm, “intuitive” to life-giving breakthroughs.

As you can probably tell, Uranus celebrates originality and individuality; it loves the rebels and revolutionaries who rally against the “establishment” and their established thought — or who at least put a new spin on old things. It can also go overboard and end up steering an erratic course onto the rocks.

So much for Uranus — what of TaurusTaurus is connected to…

Chiron in Aries until 2027

On April 17th, 2018 at 4:12am EDT, Chiron moves from dreamy, sensitive Pisces to fast-paced, enthusiastic Aries, where it will journey until Sept. 25th, 2018 — you can regard this as a preview of coming attractions, since Chiron will move into Aries in Feb. 2019… and then stay in that sign for 8 years!

What is the significance of Chiron? It’s considered the bridge between the limitations of the physical and the unlimited nature of the non-physical (or spiritual) world. Often referred to as the “Wounded Healer”, it reminds us of our humanity — and guides us to see it as a gift.

When we take responsibility for our human limitations and move past seeing them as “wrong” or “bad”, our inner gifts and uniqueness can emerge more completely and powerfully.

Let’s look now at Chiron in Aries: The day after Chiron moves into Aries,…

Were you born between April 1968 and May 1976? Or Oct. 1976 – March 1977? If the answer is yes, you have Chiron in Aries in your natal chart, and will have a Chiron Return within the next 8-9 years. This means that one cycle of your Healing Journey is coming to an end, and a new one is beginning: you are getting a chance at leaving the past behind, and moving forward with greater acceptance of your own humanity.

Is your natal Chiron in the first House of your Birth chart? Is the ruler of your natal Chiron’s sign in Aries or in your first House? You too will be able to relate to the Hero’s Healing Journey…

In our Forum on April 31st, we talked about Chiron in Aries (and Uranus in Taurus) in relationship to our own birth charts — major shifts ahead! Feel free to purchase this webinar here — if you haven’t seen it yet.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 0-3 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn, or Cancer? If so, you will be more affected by this transit over the next 5.5 months. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries, since Chiron will move through this sign for the next 8-9 years..

How to Set New Moon Intentions

 A client of mine sent me this email and I wanted to share it, because I thought that many of you might have similar questions about the New Moon Intention setting process. 

 
I have two questions on setting intentions during a New Moon: 
1. How many intentions should I set? One site recommend 10 but I image focusing a few good and important ones is better than setting your mind on too many things.
 
2. What does “setting intention” at certain time mean? Do I write them down during that time? Do I focus on them during that time? Do I keep those thought away during the voc moon? How long would it take to “set my intention”?”
 
Here is what I responded:

Saturn’s Journey through Capricorn until Dec. 2020!

Dec.19th, 2017 at 11:49pm EST, Saturn changes signs from adventurous, truth-seeking and enthusiastic Sagittarius to practical, accomplishment-oriented and responsible Capricorn, where it will journey until Dec., 2020 (except for the period between March and July of 2020, when it will temporarily move into Aquarius, giving us preview of what’s to come beyond Capricorn)

Saturn feels quite comfortable in Capricorn, as that planet “rules” this earth sign; you might say that Capricorn and Saturn have a lot in common and understand each other. Here are some key characteristics that apply to both: Continue reading “Saturn’s Journey through Capricorn until Dec. 2020!” »

Jupiter in Scorpio until November 2018

On Oct. 10th 2017, Jupiter moved from relationship-oriented, harmony-seeking Libra into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until November 8th, 2018. Jupiter has a 12-year cycle, so the last time it traveled through this transformative sign was from Oct. 2005 to Nov. 2006; the time before that was Nov. 1993 to Dec. 1994. 

Think back to those times… what possibilities or opportunities arose for you? In what ways did you grow or expand? What felt like a birth or a new beginning at that time? How could you take all of that to the next level?

A Deeper Look

T-Square (Nov. 2016 – April 2017): Since Nov. 2016, we’ve been experiencing a T-Square involving Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Libra, and Uranus in Aries. Given that this is a powerful and fairly long-lasting aspect, I figured I would write a special blog entry about it.
 
Let’s first talk about what T-Squares are in general, before diving into the specifics of this particular one:
 
The first thing you need to know is that T-squares are very dynamic aspects, that keep us “on our toes”, constantly growing. We can learn a tremendous amount when we work actively and consciously with the energies involved in a T-Square. 
 
So what exactly are they?
 
Imagine a dinner table with four legs. Now remove one of the legs. You now have two legs “opposite” each other and a third one at right angles to each of the other two; together, they make the shape of a “T”. 
 
This is not a very stable, well-balanced table, as it has an “empty” spot where a leg should be.
 
Likewise, a T-Square is a formation of 3 planets that together form the shape of a “T” in a chart — two form an “opposition”, the third one usually “squares” them both. 
 
The third planet is known as the “focus planet”. Just like our table, this planet has an “empty leg” directly across from it in the chart.
 
Why does this matter? Because the “focus planet” in a T-Square brings more stress, and thus a more urgent demand for our growth. We resolve and relieve that stress, and thereby ease the growth process, by bringing the focus planet’s higher expression to that “empty leg” in the chart. 
 
Let’s get down to the specifics of this particular T-square:

As previously mentioned, it involves Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Libra, and Uranus in Aries. All of these planets have been within 5 degrees of each other since the T-Square formed back in November and will remain so until early April. Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries form the “opposition” legs of the table, while Pluto in Capricorn is the “focus planet”.
 
This is a very powerful combo.
 
It’s asking us to be completely honest, with ourselves and others, about our intentions and motivations — especially around long-term goals. We are also asking this of our leaders right now, we want them to be honest, to have authentic intentions.
 
This aspect brings the message that each of us has the power to make a difference in the world… that we need not just give our power away to world “leaders” or “influencers”. It’s saying “We all have power, we all can make a difference — Own that! Seize the moment! Take up your courage with both hands and move forward!”
 
We are at a turning point: Empowering others is now key! Notice when you try to force your beliefs on others — that could introduce an element of disempowerment for them and us.
 
There is also some tension between relationships and long-term goals. We may ask how our relationships support us in accomplishing those long-term goals. At the root of this are seemingly conflicting desires: We want to expand our experience of harmony, balance and collaboration, all while passionately building something empowering over the long haul. It’s not always easy to “square” these energies.
 
As best as you can, stay flexible, make adjustments, find creative solutions when it comes to these very different desires and focuses. If we feel boxed in to something inauthentic, we may rebel or act contrary. This will be even more true within our relationships — this could bring in some restlessness or instability, perhaps related to our business relationships or long-term goals. 
 
As best as you can, don’t take things too personally — and stay as flexible as possible. Allow there to be breakthroughs, shifts, changes. As always, change could be uncomfortable — perhaps because we like what’s familiar — or because we want change so badly that we can’t handle the in-between phase that comes will all transitions… it’s an invitation to stretch ourselves and step into the unknown.
 
Here’s some “self-coaching” questions to ease you on your way:
 
What if that “something unexpected” around the corner was guaranteed to change my life for the better? What needs to be eliminated? Changed? What would “courage” do? What if I simply surprised myself, right here and now? 
 
Let’s look at some other facets of this T-square. Earlier, we mentioned that the “focus planet” is Pluto in Capricorn:
 
This T-square is thus asking us to stretch and grow along another dimension: we are invited to empower ourselves in the world by connecting to our “feeling body” and by developing a deeper understanding of our physical and emotional needs (especially for safety).
 
At the same time, we are also invited to stretch ourselves to create a more authentic and empowered society — one that honors the unique, individual contribution of everyone — one capable of owning its fears and less attractive characteristics. How might we bring this about? The best place to start is to honor ourselves and express our unique spark. 
 
All of this accelerates the breakdown of long-standing patterns: we are invited individually and collectively to resolve core karmic lessons — shifting from an old paradigm to a new one. What might a “new paradigm” be?
 
How can we accomplish change without discounting input from others? 
 
What if change were something we could simply allow, rather than something that involved aggression?
 
As best as you can, take it one moment at a time, there is no need to rush anything 😉 Ask yourself: Could I allow myself to be uncomfortable, just for right now?
 
The position of this T-square in our birth chart shows the area of life in which we are developing not only courage and initiative (Aries), but also diplomacy and collaborative spirit (Libra), together with responsibility and integrity (Capricorn). 
 
This T-Square is also asking us to redefine personal and collective freedom. We are invited to release old patterns, particularly around gender, so we can each fulfill our unique role at this critical juncture on Earth. Much like the 1960’s, we are laying the groundwork for future generations right now.
 
Just as was true then, we need to let our vision direct our thoughts and actions, rather than our fear. Simply know that it is possible — and that you are part of what makes it possible.
 
That said — and somewhat paradoxically — bringing forth a global consciousness based on freedom, equality and mutual benefit, will mean addressing what lurks in the shadows: our unconscious… the suppressed, feared, denied, ignored, shameful, etc.  In other words, the inner work not only continues, it informs and enables the vision.
 
So, I ask myself (and invite you to do the same): What are my true motivations? If fears were driving me, what might they be? 
 
What might shift if I faced those fears — acknowledged them, brought them out into the open? 
 
What if I allowed myself to surrender to my own higher power, or to my passionately pumping, wildly open heart? Trust your inner truth!
 
By definition, a better future pretty much always requires doing different things, or doing things differently, so be ready to correct your course or set a new one… Is there another path that leads to the goal? What if it were possible to take responsibility and be flexible at the same time? 
 
What if I forgave myself for just a moment? Even for limitations I still have… even for fears… maybe even for my phobias… for all the “stuff” I still carry around, whether from a past life or this one?
 
As you can see, we are asked to let go of our fearful conditioning, and embrace a vision that calls for us to “live into” the highest version of ourselves. 
 
This will mean we take an innovative approach both to who we are personally, and to our interactions with others. The same is true of our perspective on justice, we’re asking ourselves: what is just? We’re seeking harmony and balance.
 
Life is so short in relationship to the life of the planet. That we are not in this body for very long, means that there is a certain degree of urgency — almost like a responsibility — to make it count for something. If we are like a single drop of rain in a mighty rainstorm, why not at least be a drop that makes a ripple when it returns to the ocean? Who knows, perhaps as your ripple meets others, it might create a beautiful resonance with everything around it — a harmony that ripples down through eternity…
 
I therefore invite you to be passionate about life. Why not fully express our uniqueness? After all, that’s what will create the shift. It’s what moves other people. It’s the best and easiest way to touch each others lives.
 
We are definitely being pulled in many different directions with this T-Square, personally and collectively — radically different.
 
And, as regular readers of my Weekly Forecasts know: Self-care is therefore critical. Why do I say this?
 
It’s this simple: if we don’t maintain our physical bodies, we will not be able to maintain the pace, or meet the demands placed on us right now. 
 
The empty leg of this T-square being in Cancer, it emphasizes that message: we are reminded to nurture ourselves, especially (once again) our “feeling body”. We are being invited to pay attention to our basic needs — for love, acceptance, control, safety & security, etc. 
 
As best as you can then, take breaks — or at least slow down and allow yourself to relax. It’s important to explore ways to stay centered and grounded — seek tools or people to help you with that exploration. This is true always, of course, but holds especially true until the end of the T-Square in early April.
 
Some of us struggle with this. Perhaps we think “I don’t deserve that” or “I’m too busy — my function in the world is more important than the body that performs the work.” Some of us hear “self-care”, and think “selfish”.
 
When you think about it, though, selfish behaviors are generally coming from fear. And who is served when we neglect our physical or emotional health?
 
I invite you to reclaim the term “self-care” for love. Aren’t you as deserving of your love and support as any “external” person? Where and how could “self-oriented” motivations serve you and others?
 
“Self-care” doesn’t have to be a trip to Hawaii — we’re talking about simple things, like making sure that we eat mindfully, drink plenty of water, exercise, get plentiful rest. This is about letting in affection from friends, family, or pets. It doesn’t matter what your current energetic or financial situation, you can always find some way to let some nurturing happen 🙂
 
What (or who) brings you comfort and support? How can you nurture yourself in these times of change? 
 
What if empowerment in the world came from being in touch with our “feeling-body”? What might we accomplish if we simply asked for what we need?
 
In other words, “self-care” means connecting to whatever feels supportive, in order to stay grounded and regenerate; this is particularly important right now, because we are feeling very action-oriented.  If everything else is moving fast, it’s good if we slow down, become the eye of the storm. If nothing else, at least we can do our best to roll with the punches, while standing in our power.
 
If you’d like some help with this, watch my Full Moon in Gemini video — towards the end, I invite you to do a quick experiment with me, using simple questions from the “Sedona Method”. This can support you in feeling more grounded and present (the Sedona Method is one of the main techniques I use in my coaching practice).
 
All of this not only empowers us, it also make it easier to empower others — and remember that while force comes from fear and righteousness, true power always comes from love and openness.
 
Those of us who have personal planets or points (ASC/MC) in 14-28 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer, will feel the effects of this T-Square more strongly.

How does daily Astrology impact us personally?

A client of mine asked me about the difference between daily Astrology and how it impacts our own birth chart. I thought I would share my response…

 
“The daily Astrology and aspects I talk about in my Weekly Forecasts and my daily posts on facebook/twitter, show how the energies are at play with each other in each now moment. For example: how Jupiter interacts with Chiron at this time. Jupiter being in Virgo, opposes Chiron in Pisces at this time.
 
Apart from that, there is also how the energies are interacting with each one of us — with each of our birth charts. How does Jupiter connect with your natal chart? Jupiter being in Virgo, how does it connect with your natal planets?
 
Every planetary energy interacts with something in our own charts. Either a natal planet, a personal point (Ascendant, Career point, etc) or it simply journeys through a House in our chart (influencing an area of our lives). These interactions help us learn something, explore something new, or experience something about ourselves or the world around us that supports our evolutionary process.
 
Every planetary energy that interacts with another planetary energy in this now moment shows us what the now energies are all about and how to best align ourselves with those. It’s like knowing what the weather is doing…
 
Of course you are probably only interested in what the weather does where you live. Who cares if it snows in Chicago if you live in England, right?
 
Watch my video on: “How to Read Your Birth chart, so you can apply my weekly forecast and bi-monthly videos to your own birth chart and get the maximum benefit from my astrological “weather forecasts” 😉
 
I hope this answered your question. If not, feel free to join me for the next Monthly Forecasting Forum, and ask me whatever you want to know about Astrology at that point ;-)”

Mercury Shadow Phases and Retrogrades

What happens when a planet goes “retrograde”?

 
Relative to us on Earth, planets periodically look as if they are slowing down. As they slow more and more, they seem to stop moving through the sky for a while, then actually go “backward”. This backward motion then slows in turn, halts — the planet is stationary again — and then, slowly at first, the planet sets off again in a “forward” direction. 
 
Astrologers say a planet is “stationing” during both periods when the planet is still or moving slowly. The times when the planet appears to go backward are called “retrogrades”.

Chiron in Pisces: Emotional and Spiritual Healing

What is a Saturn Return?

A client of mine asked me yesterday:

I have been holding some questions around Saturn Return for a while now and have reached a point where I would like to get some clarity on the subject.  I’ve heard different things from many people for years now.  More than anyone else, I trust and would love to hear your interpretation. So I am asking if you are willing and able to take the time to enlighten me?

Saturn Return in Scorpio: A “Cataclysmic Event”?

A client of mine asked me yesterday:

“I did have one question for you regarding my first Saturn Return. I guess I’m just a bit afraid that there will be some cataclysmic event that will occur in and around the day it is exact. If there were to be one main event that would occur, I’m wondering what that could be?” 
 
In regards to your question about the Saturn Return, usually when we are in denial about our lives/something in our life or we rationalize things, we will have a rude awakening during a Saturn transit.

Saturn in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio until September 2015

Saturn changed signs from Libra to Scorpio on October 5th, 2012. Saturn’s entry into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio is a powerful placement for the next three years, as it creates a mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn (until September 2015) — Pluto and Saturn will be supporting each other’s agendas, as long as they are in each other’s sign.

The last time Saturn changed signs from harmony-loving Libra to intense, all-or-nothing Scorpio was in November 1982 (and then again in August 1983 because of Saturn’s retrograde phase). If you remember that period, you may recall what happened in the area of relationships for you (or for your parents) at that time. This time around, we are getting a chance to go to a new level, in regards to our relationships and long-term goals. We are starting a new chapter.
Saturn in Scorpio wants us to get down to business when it comes to our deep emotional bonds, either with ourselves or others. It’s time to make some decisions. No more trying to see both sides of a situation, it’s time to make some real choices. It’s do or die; it’s all or nothing. We are being invited to make some really deep changes in our lives. We are ready to put an end to things that are just simply not working for us anymore.
We are powerful in our own right, and Saturn invites us to create healthy boundaries with others. Where could you set some healthy boundaries for yourself? At work? At home? With your family?
We are now ready to focus on becoming whole. We can do this by taking a serious look at what qualities and behaviors need to be embraced: the good, the bad and the ugly. Bringing conscious awareness to all of who we are is the only way to feel empowered from within and to heal what was disempowered in the past. It’s time to take responsibility for who we are and what we are capable of. How can you bring “light”, awareness to the darker places inside of you?
Anything that doesn’t completely resonate with us on a truthful and deeply passionate level is going to have to be cut loose. This may feel scary at first, but if we are being honest with ourselves, whatever we loose or cut loose was not adding anything to our lives anyways; so we are better off without it.
We are here now to get really honest about what we are passionate about, what we want to pursue long-term that resonates with us in a deep, authentic way. We need to make good on our promises now: it’s not enough anymore to just talk about something — it’s time for actions and commitments. We can no longer waste time, we must do what is required, so that we can have deeper, more fulfilling experiences. This is true on a personal and on a collective level.
What would it take for you to fulfill your full potential? What is it that you are most afraid of doing? What if you just went ahead and did it?
On a collective level, we may need to look at our shared resources. These may be resources we share with other countries or the resources of our planet. It’s a great time to clean up all the pollution in the air and in our waters — and take responsibility for a healthy, whole connection to our planet.
For those of us who have Scorpio planets, a Scorpio Ascendent or a Libra Ascendent in a late degree: You may be coming out of a phase of your life that was a little confusing. A phase that had to do with ending things and preparing for the next phase of you life. Now it is time to actualize yourself, to begin anew and to start building something long-term. It’s time to grow up and take responsibility for who you are and what you want. This is a new beginning for you, as best as you can, look reality straight in the eye and get it together. You won’t be able to get away with being anything less than being a mature, upright citizen with complete integrity.

What is this “Moon void of course” -energy?

 As the Moon moves through the sky it transits through each zodiac sign in turn, changing signs every two and a half days. Within each sign, it makes various aspects to other planets and celestial bodies; at a certain point, it will make the last aspect in that particular sign. You can think of aspects as being a relationship between two energies; until the Moon enters the next sign it is not connected to any other energies.


Astrologers refer to this as a “Void of Course (VoC) Moon”. During these Moon VoC periods, we too can feel “cut loose”, disconnected from anything definite. Knowing how to handle these VoC periods is one of the most valuable things Astrology can give us.

The VoC Moon invites us to process what we have experienced during the non-VoC Moon periods. It also invites us to drop into our feminine energies: receiving, nurturing, recharging, reflecting, going inward… If you are not able to connect to those feminine energies, stick to routine things and plan your day ahead of time (before it goes VoC). As best as you can, avoid any important meetings, communications and scheduling for the future. Starting or purchasing anything brand-new is not advisable — anything started during a Moon VoC will most likely not have the desired outcome. Rather, finish things up and work on creative or spiritual endeavors. Most importantly, go with the flow 🙂

Pluto Station: Transformation Ahead

A Pluto station takes longer than any other planetary station, because it moves so slowly — and it’s intense.

 
For a few weeks, before and after a Pluto retrograde phase, as Pluto starts to turn retrograde, or starts moving forward again, its teachings will reveal themselves. It is just about impossible to understand what is taking place when you’re inside a Pluto turnaround. There is no way to grasp the immensity of such a tremendous event until you’re past it. With Pluto making a challenging aspect to Uranus these days, this ups the ante; we are experiencing some very powerful internal changes.
 
On a personal level, this energy takes us to the depth of who we are, it will go to the deepest and darkest places, until we are ready to let go and surrender to our higher Self. When it’s starting to speed up its forward movement; it is then we will most likely start to see the bigger picture emerge. This can give us the power to make deep changes in our lives.
 
Pluto’s energy is known as the transformer — bringer of endings and beginnings — endings of things that no longer serve us and beginnings of that which moves us closer to our true soul purpose, our deepest passion. Pluto is an all-or-nothing energy; it is about empowering ourselves from within and empowering others by being truthful to who we are, by expressing our highest purpose, by tapping fully into our true nature.
 
If you are willing, you will be experiencing a very powerful new beginning. We are being asked to take a big jump and grow beyond old, self-imposed boundaries.
 
If you have anything in a mid degree of Libra, Capricorn, Aries or Cancer in your natal chart, this time is going to affect you in a very profound way. As best as you can, keep your focus on the things you want to create, rather than on the things you don’t want to create. Let yourself be still and peaceful.
 
Could you allow yourself to open your heart, even if fear is present? Are there any attachments or obsessions in your life right now that are no longer serving you? Could you allow yourself to release them and relax into your heart-center? Could you be open to experiencing true power from within? What would it look like if you were truly powerful, from a place of love, not fear?
 
People born in the 70s have their natal Pluto in Libra. With natal Pluto in Libra we are being asked to transform our relationships and feel empowered through them, in them (and empower ourselves and our partner) by being truthful to who we are. If you were born in the mid-late 70s, you will make a profound change in how you do relationships. Be open to grounding yourself in who you are and allowing things to end that need to, so you can experience a powerful new beginning that serves you and your Soul’s journey.
 
Many blessings,
Sonja

The Uranus-Pluto Dance of Personal & Global Growth 2011-2017

 Uranus/Pluto squares: These outer planets move more slowly through the sky and their influence is very powerful. We started to feel the approach towards the first square already back in Spring of 2011, the last exact square will be in 2015. And we will still be able to feel the effects fo this combo until 2017.

As these two planets move through this sequence, the energy rises and falls like a slow-moving, powerful tide that reaches a high point as the square becomes exact, then slowly subsides. All seven of these squares are connected to our personal and collective evolution towards greater freedom and authenticity — and also our ability to create something that serves ourselves and others over the long-term.
