United States birthday and Uranus retrograde
Sunday, July 4, the United States will be 234 years old, the numbers adding up to a nine. Nine means endings. Esoterically, nine signifies initiation, a shift to a higher state of consciousness. Endings and initiations work together. The United States is presently having a transit of Pluto (3 Capricorn) opposite Venus (3 Cancer) indicating economic transformation. Pluto has opposed Venus several times. Thus the U.S. has seen the dollar fluctuating (moving toward hyper-inflation), debt mounting and food prices soaring. Humanity will soon begin defining its true values. This occurs only after revolutionary breakdowns. We’re no longer slouching toward that happening.
Uranus retrogrades Monday, July 5 at 0 degrees Aries. When Uranus (revolution) entered Aries (making all things new) on May 28 we considered new actions and ideas; new developments and possibilities were set in motion. Seeking new direction, we shifted our
attention from the old to the new unfolding Aquarian culture and civilization. Now as Uranus retrogrades, we’ll investigate, analyze and research these new ideas, for to “make all things new” we must first change internally.
The principle of freedom emerges within us with Uranus retrograde. Freedom stimulates, encourages and kindles the revolution needed for humanity to separate from the forces of materiality and create the new sharing society — the “new materiality.”
By internally processing (retrograde work) the needed world changes, when Uranus turns direct on Dec. 5, we’ll have developed the needed psychological strength, courage and tools to move forward once again. Humanity is presently poised on a “threshold” of choice. Uranus retrograde helps us see that we must create an uprising that awakens the new archetypes that will bring forth the needed new world order. Stand up, everyone!
ARIES: Uranus is the awakener. A great shift in perception will begin as you seek more freedom of expression. However, first you’ll feel you cannot speak your mind — because a new awakening is occurring internally, in your consciousness. You’ll wonder if you must leave all that you love behind. It’s a risk to help create a new world. You, however, have the tools and courage. Rest a while so you can hear the call when it comes.
TAURUS: You’ll find that events in your surroundings and environments are rushing you forward into the future you’ve been warning us about. You’ll also realize certain elements of your life are no longer available. All things from the past will be useless in the face of what you must create for the future. Calling upon great spiritual resources, you single-handedly construct the new curriculum needed for humanity’s survival and education. You’ve been pondering this for years. It’s now time.
GEMINI: There’s a need within for a change in friends, groups and your entire social circle of people. You require a new life, new blood, new ideas that apply the astrological and esoteric to your daily life, for life to make sense and realize this is the path to be taken. Anything and anyone limiting your steps forward cannot accompany you. When are you leaving?
CANCER: Following orders seems much more difficult and you will resist anyone with authority. This is good some times, and not so good other times. You’ll learn to discern and discriminate soon enough. Don’t be impulsive, avoid alcohol and attempt to observe yourself more directly. Notice how creative you are. People look to you for unusual information continually emerging from your mind. In the world, you’re seen as a rather radical. Interesting!
LEO: Will you be traveling soon? If so, know that strange and unusual events may occur, you’ll encounter new ways of thinking creating in you expansive, open-minded, utopian, communal thoughts (again?). Traditions fall away and gradually, over time, you become unconventional, adapting from cultures ways of being that comfort you. Education, travel, study, religion, mountaineering, philosophy, politics — which attract you?
VIRGO: Shared resources, taxes, loans, insurance, and/or values (also shared with another close to you) may tilt sideways and be shaken up in your life. This creates the need to rebalance, choosing your own values and finding your own money to pursue what’s most important. You’ll ponder deeply before venturing forth into uncharted territory and unusual relationships. Have fun, though.
LIBRA: Everyone close may feel unpredictable. You may change your view of relationships and feel you cannot rely on your partner for things you hope and expect. There could be a sense of limitation, creating a challenge to break free. You or your partner may become rebellious, act in surprising ways. You sense you’re on your own. In some ways, yes you are. It will redefine you. Reach out.
SCORPIO: Everything in daily life and work may feel like they are being shaken up. You also feel the need to loosen yourself from previous ways of thinking, beliefs and relating. You also need to tend to health. The years ahead will be influenced by what you think and do now. Disruptions can be looked upon as reasons to create a new rhythm. Bring forth your deep, inventive nature. It will save you.
SAGITTARIUS: Don’t be surprised should you experience sudden changes in thoughts and creativity. Don’t be surprised if you’re attracted to a totally different type of person, place or way of life. Don’t be surprised if you work really hard at loosening any obstructions and inhibitions, and they fly away like a flock of blackbirds. You want to become different, become eccentric, playful, more childlike, more romantic. Over time this occurs.
CAPRICORN: Observe your home life. Are changes and subtle fluctuations taking place? Perhaps within you? Could you move at some point? Realize that routines may shift, decision-making becomes deeper and more internal, you don’t want anything unusual or hasty to be arranged because that would make you feel out of control. You will try new things, set out to create new traditions. But you must also take the time for long, restful sleep. It nourishes you so you can nourish others (more).
AQUARIUS: You may find yourself easily bored, things traditional and/or habitual not useful. You seek new realities, new studies, unusual fields of endeavors and concepts. You’re highly creative when speaking and writing. Usual routines begin to break away so a new self-expression can take hold. Visualize all needed changes. This creates outer changes. A new environment or neighborhood would expand you.
PISCES: Convert all extra money to silver and/or gold, use it to buy land, food and essential things needed that sustain. Your values are changing and this will continue. Income may fluctuate, outlay must be practical. All possessions no longer useful will quietly disappear. Don’t lament this reality. New, better, greater ones will appear. Your social life, groups and contacts change, too. It’s all for the good, the better and the best. Stay poised, patient and cultivate hope and courage.
