Uranus is stationing direct now about to turn direct again and Mercury does the same thing in a few days! I always think of Lightening Striking (The Tower Card in Tarot) with Uranus. Most astrologers think of Uranus as the higher vibration of Mercury—I agree. Electrical storms or electrical technology could get our attention in some way or another right now. And we had a humdinger of a lightning storm yesterday afternoon—the thunder was so loud the walls and floor shook… a typical Uranus event, lightning strikes!
Luckily, I left the pool just in time to get back home and unplug the important electronic equipment here and tired from a long swim; I lay down upon the living room floor, feet up, dark clouds enveloping the charged atmosphere and enjoyed the show from Mother Nature, courtesy of Uranus.
Astrology teacher, Kim Marie (AKA Star Lady) says that right now “Emotions continue to be highlighted usually triggered by unresolved family of origin issues.” I had a discussion with a good friend about that very thing yesterday—i.e. cultural and familial conditioning and the expectations involved. Pluto is opposing a good deal of planets in Cancer right now (Mars, Jupiter, Mercury) and by sign the Sun is involved in that mix. These are typical summertime themes actually with planets in Cancer.
Swimming has been high on my priority list – with so many planets in Cancer, the water sign, that’s right on time. And in my case, these planets are showing up in the area of my life involving ‘community’—the 11th house. (My swimming is in a ‘community’ pool.)
INTUITION LESSON: I’ve noticed that I was hitting the pool at the right times at the start of things and once or twice, not paying attention to my intuition, my arrival coordinated with full lap lanes. The more anxious I became about getting there in order to secure a swim lane, the more people wanted to share the lane with me. I was arriving at the pool at totally wrong times! Yesterday, I went back to “feeling” or “intuiting” when I should leave for the pool and THAT worked out fine. I was able to swim for over an hour without interruption. Of all people, I should know better than to let that type of concern rule over my intuition. Generally speaking, when we are relaxed about life and going with the flow (not being restless, nervous or apprehensive) our intuition will guide us without our realizing it is! Things just seem to work out and we hardly notice—except when they don’t and then we realize (as I did) that we were coming from the wrong mental and emotional space.
REAL WORLD versus DREAM WORLD… that’s another interesting transit happening now (Saturn trine Neptune). Where does that occur in your chart and how does it play into your natal Saturn and Neptune? For me, it’s houses 3 and 7 respectfully where the transit occurs, triggering the 12th and 2nd natally. However it plays out for each of us specifically, generally speaking the imagination or dreams can come into the world of grounded form easily. Imagine only good things or that which you wish to see brought into the world of form; this is the advice! This aspect will be vital through November; so dream well use your imagination wisely.
PS—this trine of Saturn to Neptune is in the Disseminating phase indicating a high degree of socialization is involved.
