Uranus Station ~ Lunar Eclipse: Messages in the Chaos?



NOTE: This is an updated and updated version of a post from July, 2010.

“And if every way is closed before you,
the secret one will show a secret path
no other eyes have seen.”


. . . . . . . .

Uranus is stationing direct now at 0°38′ Aries. During the days (and even weeks) surrounding this event the energy will be interesting, dynamic and maybe even feel somewhat strange. While Uranus does station direct once every year, doing so at the first degree of Aries is a once in a lifetime event (less, actually). This is a powerful indication that new beginnings are at hand and that change is in the air.

The impact of this event is made all the more potent by the Lunar Eclipse that is also occurring this weekend. Insights and messages offering guidance are present everywhere–keep on the look out for them! New directions, understandings and pathways are now ready to reveal themselves.

Here are some things you may notice:

  • Your basic energy may be erratic, fluctuating from one extreme to another for the next few weeks.
  • Feeling either wired and hyper or the other end of the spectrum as though you are stuck and going nowhere. Both are possible.
  • You could feel nervous, anxious or edgy, jumping when the phone rings.
  • Feeling impatient, as though things just can’t happen fast enough.
  • You may have sudden bursts of energy, either physical or mental.
  • You may feel scattered and ungrounded, finding it hard to focus.
  • Some may feel quite psychic and intuitive as Uranus can increase these frequencies.
  • Difficulty sleeping or relaxing as your mind is very active may occur.

The higher frequencies will express in these ways, which you may also notice:

  • Openings to higher truths, bringing clarity and revealing new avenues and directions.
  • Clever, even brilliant, ideas and inspired thoughts can come out of nowhere and from unusual and unexpected sources.
  • Solutions that you had not thought of before can appear during this time.
  • Take special note of those that are original and fresh, things you have never seen or thought of before.
  • All this can bring you greater clarity and fresh, new perspectives.

Keep in mind that events may occur during this time that may make no sense now or that may seem insignificant. Yet something may happen now that will play a key role in your life down the road. Hence, anything that seems a bit odd or unusual, or beyond “coincidence” or if you get an interesting idea in a  flash of insight or perhaps in a dream, make a note of it! You may want to refer to it later.

Wishing you many moments of inspiration during this special time.

Intense Energies A Foot

Every so often there is a combo of astrological events that creates so much tension it affects many areas of life and lots of people. We are under one of these now. Can you feel it? It feels as though a spark could ignite a blaze in an instant and things could escalate on a dime.

Riots in London, economic melt downs right and left and today was the most powerful Sun flare in years (an X-7) to add yet more intensity to the air.

That Cardinal Cross is back!

So what is happening? Basically Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Cancer, Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Libra are forming a Cardinal cross. Yes…it is indeed back (this was very potent during the Summer of 2010). AND right now, and for the next 24 hours, the Moon is also in Capricorn, adding a strong emotional element to the mix.

These combined impact the most fundamental areas of our life. Work, finances, relationships and home. Our sense of security and trust in the future is challenged as many strive to find answers to the challenges they face.

There are several articles and posts on my site about the influence of the Cardinal Cross. You can read more here.

But Wait ~ There’s More!

Further, Mercury is Retrograde while opposing Neptune. This can confuse things, making it extra difficult to gain clarity and direction. Are we hearing the whole truth, you may be wondering under this influence as deception and the “spin doctors” are most prevalent now. BE SURE to check and re-check your plans and arrangements now!

And then there’s the Full Moon, too!

Churnings Deep Within

Mars, Mercury and Pluto are together in Capricorn now, generating a most dynamic and powerful force. You can expect to feel churnings at gut levels for awhile. What is moving deep within? What is wanting to emerge in your life? These are up now.

In the Tarot, the Tower (XVI) is a perfect card depicting the current energies. We all have a structure for our life, which is the Tower in this image. Many things built this structure–believes, experiences, decisions, etc. Yet there are times the structure becomes out-dated in some way, and actually begins to confine us instead of support us.

Know that new avenues for Light are created from Tower-like experiences.

The Universal energies, here shown as the lightening, rain and wind, come and threaten the existing Tower, i.e. structure. While there is much here to understand, the most important thing to remember is that it is indeed necessary at times to allow the old to crumble, as this creates an opening to the next phase.

I love that the next card in the sequence of the Tarot is the Star (XVII)–enlightenment and insight from above. Yet how can this enlightenment “get in” if we block it by remaining “safe” within our Tower?

Back to the current Astrological influence: With Mercury also retrograde, trust your instincts more than your mind. (Or at least as much as.) You know, at some level, what is going on. This happening in the sign of Capricorn indicates that the area of your life likely being impacted is foundational, basic, where you stand. Time to move? Change jobs? Break off a habit? Or a dysfunctional relationship or association?

Some questions to ask now are:

  • Are old forms and patterns holding me back?
  • Did I make decisions in the past that I am still living by, but that are now out dated and no longer server me?
  • Am I tending to the most basic areas of my life? Those that encourage and create new life to course through my veins?
  • Do I do things in a direct and decisive manner or waste time in indecision?
  • Do I have a Life Plan? Is it in alignment with my Soul Plan? (I will be addressing this more as the New Year approaches).

In essence, now is a time when what is REALLY going on deep within, those patterns and believes that can run the show from the unconscious, are emerging in some way or another. This can indeed be uncomfortable . . . however, it can also be revealing and ultimately show you where you are blocked.

A birth of sorts is at hand. And as with most births, it can also be painful and full of intensity. Notice the shift of the subtle inner currents. A change by mid-week in some key area is possible.

Sending you much Light,


Mars Triggers Eclipse Point

You may have heard that Eclipses have a 90-day impact before and after the actual event. So what can trigger the influence during the 90-day time period? Several things, but perhaps at the top of the list is Mars. Right now, and for a couple days, Mars is at 19-20 degrees Libra which is forming an exact square to the July 11th Solar Eclipse point.

Mars is called the Great Activator and Catalyst. When Mars comes along, it can be as a sudden burst of energy appeared out of nowhere. Here is what my thesaurus says for catalyst: stimulus, stimulation, spark, sparkplug, spur, incitement, impetus.

Here are some things you might notice for a few days:

  • An activation of energies as something pulls you in and gets your attention.
  • Sparks may fly around you. This could be thrilling and interesting or unsettling.
  • A project needs to move forward-like now!
  • In fact, forward motion is a key to taping into this energy. It’s time!
  • You may feel anxious, as though something is going to happen but you don’t know what.
  • Your energy may soar.
  • This is a great aspect for sparking inertia or stagnation of any kind.
  • Do try not to get impatient or reactive. Steady does it!
  • Take note of what area of your life is pulling you forward into your life.

It is important to pay attention to anything that carries these vibrations as they may have at a deeper source the energies seeded by the Eclipse this Summer. Thus it’s impact on your life may be more significant than a first glance suggest.

This may be just the spark you need to get going. Take advantage of the fiery nature available now and you may be amazed at what could come of it and how far you can go with it in the next few weeks.

In Light,


Beneath the Chaos

I am hearing more and more about how many are feeling everything from overwhelmed to challenged to stuck to anxious in response to the dynamic and perhaps  tumultuous celestial influences these days.

And for sure, the Cosmos is playing its hands, bringing all this right before us and laying it all out on the table.

But what is happening beneath the surface of all this perhaps chaotic energy?

The four Cardinal signs, where so much is happening now, rule the most basic areas of our life.
Those that we rely and count on and that essentially constitute our foundations. It is from these areas that all other aspects of our life are supported, such as creativity, friends, our spiritual journey, finances and others. And with so much activity occurring in these signs, many will be feeling change, even chaos, in their lives at these fundamental levels.

Yet beneath the chaos, there is purpose and order to all this. These powerful energies are wanting you to become more aware of how the patterns of your life, those that we often take for granted, actually determine who you are and how you live.

When celestial events as potent as these come along (which is extremely rare) they stir up the bottom of the pond, the place where we stand, and as a result we experience and see where we do actually stand in our life as it is now right before us. And yes, it can produce feelings of turmoil and anxiousness.

To the degree you have become complacent, accepting certain circumstances of your life even if they are not supporting your feeling alive is the degree these influences will be felt in challenging ways. But inherent in this very process is the wake-up call you have perhaps been needing to not only hear, but heed, to compel and inspire you to change.

. . . . .

Let’s take a closer look at what area of life each of the Cardinal signs rules.
As you read this over, which area lights up for you? Where are you experiencing the most challenges or turmoil? Where are you starting to really get that change simply must occur there?  Where do you see that you are ready to feel more vital and alive? Are you experiencing a “rude awakening” in some specific area? Then most likely that area of your chart is getting the strongest hit from the astrological influences occurring now. Keep in mind that everyone has these four signs in theri natal chart and this means they are each influencing some area of your life.
