Here comes freedom-loving Uranus in Aries

Although it’s possible to give the whole sign of Leo, for instance, a psychic reading for the year, (see my January newsletter), I don’t really follow the stars and study what’s coming up in the way of planetary aspects. Tonight, on-it astrologer Eric Teissedre alerted me to the looming gravitational field of Uranus. Uranus is considered an “outer planet”, meaning its effects are more on the whole of society.

Uranus is going into Aries next month, March 11th. My ancient horoscope primer, “A to Z Horoscope Maker”, has a pretty benign interpretation of that. It says (if one’s born with Uranus in Aries), expect to have “…a love for independence and freedom, positiveness, force and impulse”.

Eric’s interpretation, albeit he’s talking about the effect of a planet’s movement on countries, not an individual, is a little more alarming. He writes: “You notice how political upheaval is starting with Uranus entering Aries? Well, it is there for 7 years, although the intensity is usually at the time of entering a sign, but oh boy, watch out!”

Maybe “this time it’s different”, and a new kind of revolution in national consciousness plus Facebook and Twitter, is not the bloody revolution of the past. Maybe the intense part just happened in Tahrir Square. It seem unlikely but maybe now, a Uranus in Aries revolution can be a non-violent one. Except those weapon-wielding camel riders suggest not…maybe the world doesn’t change that fast.
