My last several posts have been very intense and I know that. But we are living through intense times and while I usually like to give an uplifting outlook as much as possible I have to call things as I see it and not gloss over hard and difficult aspects. It doesn't really matter what part of the political spectrum you fall on, so when I talk about things like revolution and the breakdown of old structures and the push towards something new and evolutionary, that would happen no matter which president or administration is in office. The events may be played out differently but the astrology remains the same. Revolution is revolution and disruptive no matter which side you fall on, but who is in charge will dictate the form and substance.
So the Sun will enter Aquarius tomorrow and on schedule a new administration will be sworn in shortly thereafter and life goes on. Aquarius is the sign of politics, democracy and group consensus. The Sun focuses its will on this sign and with Jupiter and Saturn both in this sign for the entire year all the growth and restriction will be around the political arena and the thoughts, ideas, freedom, and the group with which you align yourself. What is your political team and who are your group of friends? A pandemic forces you to choose your pod, your bubble, your family, your friends that you want to be part of. It's like living in a restricted community where you have a fence that keeps out the undesirables from the people that have chosen to live there. This is a time when people of a like mind join and band together to form safety in numbers. You can see the positive and negative side to that way of thinking.
Inauguration Day has challenging aspects so that means the new president and administration will have monumental challenges over the course of the next 4 years. This chart becomes one of the few charts we use to make predictions for the country over the next four years along with the president's chart and the USA natal chart.
Another observation about Uranus moving forward in Taurus and an important part of this energy is detachment from what owns you. Taurus is a sign very concerned with money, possessions and material security. Uranus is a planet that demands separation, logic and detachment and often does this, as all the outer planets do, in ways that catch us off guard and make us feel a loss of control and grounding. Uranus does this often through divorce, separation, sudden outbursts, riots, breaks as well as epiphanies, flashes of brilliance and enlightenment. Taurus likes to accumulate because it thinks it needs lots of things in its life for security and stability. Taurus at its most negative is about the 7 deadly sins: Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Lust, Pride, Sloth and Envy. Uranus in Taurus will force a split and a separation from those things, people, places and situations that we no longer think we need. If it owns you then Uranus says, nuh uh, it's not necessary. You may be forced to split from whatever brings that false security. The break may occur through circumstances beyond your control and that would be painful but you also may come to certain conclusions on your own and the split, separation and divorce may be done as a more conscious choice. Often it's a combination of both where an event forces a release and then the action taken surrounding that event becomes more conscious and pushes you in a new direction. If the things you possess are putting you in bondage then its time to break those chains that bind and seek more freedom.
Uranus in Taurus says simplify your life by giving up that which owns you. When you shed layers of stuff your burden is lightened and the walk becomes lighter. You may also unleash new talent and creativity. That is ultimately what is being asked of you on a deeply personal level.
