The Planets Are Adding to Our Desire for the Shift
This is reprinted from Jacqueline Lasahn's AstroSpirit newsletter.
Uranus, the cosmic awakener orbits the Sun in the course of 84 years. At times disruptive, the restless voice of Uranus agitates us to act on ideals of personal freedom, individuality and collective change. During the next 10 months, Uranus moves into Aries, back into Pisces and then onward into Aries. This passage stimulates a unique bridge between the last sign of the zodiac: ultra sensitive and boundless Pisces and the first sign of the zodiac: Aries the warrior of elemental fire.
Jupiter's orbit of 12 years now brings this luminous planet to move in alignment with Uranus. Jupiter expands and exaggerates Uranus' expression. Together they jump-start vision, rapid change and a leap in consciousness. On June 8, Jupiter and Uranus join together at 0 degrees Aries, the point of the Spring Equinox. This marks the inception of unprecedented change that will continue to rise and mount with added complexity and challenges as Saturn and Pluto are deep into the mix.
Progressive, pioneering discoveries involving science and technology are bringing rapid advances to our world. An example of a previous Uranus Aries ingress was the discovery of gold in California in 1848 which sparked the Gold Rush. In 1969, Neil Armstrong said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." An appropriate statement for the lunar landing and the concurrent Jupiter Uranus conjunction. Technology has evolved to be enmeshed in every part of our lives. What new energy can bring us forward into a bright future? What new technology rashly implemented, leaves destruction in it's wake?
It is time for humanity to give up the illusion of separateness and awaken to the awareness and responsibility of the collective family of humanity. It begins with accepting diversity and affirming the creative potential of each individual. There is a fire of new life energy rising within each one of us. This is a time of accepting uncertainty and opening to new awareness. It's not about feeling ready, life prompts us, even pushes us. There may be an emergency where we respond with our reflexes. We may be surprised with new opportunities for growth that take us beyond our imagination. We are called to be authentic to our own vital core, rather than depending on external security. It is time for us to take the initiative, to be courageous and bold, to step out, to step up and to make a difference.
