The Planet of Uranus

Uranus - Winds of Change


Uranus is a sign for 7 years. The Planet Uranus changes signs every 7 years and brings with it change, unexpected events, and sometimes complete upheaval. Uranus tosses us outside our comfort zone to experience life "outside the box". The winds of change blow as Uranus moves our life into new and different directions, giving us experiences that we had not planned on or thought would occur in our life by any stretch of the imagination. In our logical, systematic thought process, we walk along our pathway in life, yet at other times particular events create the change of a lifetime. The Planet of Uranus is usually the messenger of such changes.

Because Uranus stays in one sign for SEVEN years, it is often the planet that is considered the testing ground of the "disciples". Often the experiences, during a SEVEN year cycle of Uranus in a particular sign, bring in the same type of challenges over and over again, regardless of what we do, and regardless of the efforts to thrust change. It is as if the events are not connected to our actions at all, but instead are occurring to see how we "respond" to the events. This is especially true in those events that are seemingly unfairly set against us. These type of events are the tell-tale sign of this SEVEN year testing ground for disciples of Truth.

Uranus in a sign for SEVEN years creates positive easy trines, or challenging side winds of squares, or power struggles of unfairness in oppositions and rags to riches (or visa versa) in conjunctions. It is all for the purpose to bring about greater understanding and spiritual evolution, individually and globally.

Doorway signs are those signs that at a challenged angle to Uranus. Typically in astrology, much is written about squares in a negative perspective. However, squares are like stairs, they allow us to make major steps upward. Squares are also needed to make major transitions from one room to another, from one way of life to another lifestyle. The true doorway is square, ultimately giving us the opportunity to make an archway out of the transition, by seeing the higher purpose of the arch through the square.

Uranus in Aries - March 11, 2011 - 2018

The shift of Uranus into Aries occurred on March 2011 and will stay til 2018. This shift creates changes for a 7-year generation period. Additionally, the changes impact us personally and globally. Uranus in Aries brings the self forward in ways to create revolution of self and require new, innovative ways and means. On a personal level, those that have planets that are square to Uranus during the 7-year period are impacted as "doorway signs", those whose life will dramatically change because of the square, opposition or conjunction to Uranus. These new doorway signs are those who have major planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Additionally Uranus moves into a square position to Pluto seven times, with the first on June 24th, 2012. There will be major upheavals with this square, impacting the status quo and requiring systems change. The events resemble the force of change and hammering similar to a rusted bolt that doesn't move, doesn't change. The hammering begins to knock the rust off in order to make the transitions necessary. The hammering began in early 2011 with the uprising against old regimes and old patriarchial dictatorships. This uprising will continue to knock the rust off of the bolts until change happens. The epic times of change began when Uranus moved into fiery Aries. The uprising, revolts and upheaval will continue to displace the status quo, intensifying during the exact squares of Uranus to Pluto. The last time Uranus was square to Pluto was April 1932 to December 1934, which also give us another level of understanding that events from the current time are also tied into events that correlate to that time in history. We will see many aspects of similarities to current time, especially as the Mercury retrograde** cycle also correlates 2013 to events of 1934. We see that the same planetary energies are creating similar events in the outside world. Click here to read more about the similarities of the Mercury retrograde** cycle. Especially obvious is the similarity to the dust bowls happening in 1933, 1934 and 1935, relative to the ones experiencing in 2012, 2013. Additionally, there were major events of power struggles internationally, leadership transitions, rise of power regimes and financial adjustments globally. Change and revisions are needed, yet through the eyes of history, the elements are shifted to give us a chance to respond and direct the energy into positive times of change.


Jupiter square Uranus - Seven year cycle - Testing of a True Disciple

Jupiter square Uranus occurs February 25 and April 20, 2014. This aspect occurs every seven years, the same elements that define the "seven-year testing of the true disciple", which occur with this astrological aspect. Every seven years Uranus shifts into a different sign, but it is often not until Jupiter squares Uranus that the turning cogs of spiritual energy shifts you into a new theme, with a new path and journey.

Jupiter requires that you expand beyond your previous comfort zone or your previous station, and Uranus brings in the changes that shift you beyond that old environment. Looking back to the history of this aspect provides the recognition of key changes that shifted your course and theme of spiritual growth. As the old themes transition into a new cadence, the evolution of situations emerge a whole new series of events that brings forward the elements that the square signals. Jupiter in Cancer emerges the emotional awareness as it pertains to the Self that is evolving beyond the old situations. As this aspect appears this week, the underlying elements of feeling exhausted, and overwhelmed by the marathon that has transpired during the seven year testing of a disciple. You may try to point to something in the current environment, but typically the environment no longer holds the events of the past and yet, the spiritual journey has not brought to completion the events that occurred seven years ago. The spirit has still been completing this journey.

February 25th and April 20th hold the same aspect of Jupiter square Uranus, with February holding the Jupiter retrograde and April holds Jupiter direct, moving beyond the past. Between these two dates, major changes will occur to release the old journey to reconnect with the new.

Finishing the marathon of these seven-year journeys is no subtle feat. It is filled with overwhelm, emotional exhaustion and feeling that you have narrowly escaped total destruction. As the Phoenix emerges from the ashes, the spirit emerges with the strength gained from such a harrowing escapade of events. How is it possible to explain to others the incredible journey that has just transpired? Escaping from the torrent of flames that engulfs the past events, you walk out of the scene with the miracle of running the Mogadishu Mile; out of a destruction that is inconceivable to the ordinary person, yet a journey that has changed your life forever.

Look at the areas of your chart that hold the square of Jupiter and Uranus to understand the dynamic events that created the squaring events. This level of intensity is only known by experience when key planetary locations create challenging aspects within your chart. Gain insight and understanding of your spiritual journey as the location of these squares provides the life-changing events that you wouldn't wish upon your worst enemy but with the incredible growth now wouldn't trade them for the world. Only those who truly experience this level of intensity can understand the true journey required as the "seven-year testing of a True Disciple".

House placement of Uranus in Aries
The location of Aries within your chart indicates the area of your life that will reap the benefit of Uranus moving through Aries. The location of Aries often covers two houses, with the majority in one house or the other. Uranus moving into Aries turns the lights on in your Aries sector impacting the house(s) that Aries occupies. Where Aries rules (in the ruling position) will be the area in which the most will be impacted, even if there is a time delay to show sudden, dramatic changes within that area of your life.

Uranus moving through Aries impacting your 1st house brings changes out of the blue that will impact your self image prompting you to create a new image and adjust to a new position in life. The first house rules self, positions, leadership and the like. With Uranus changing the situations that impact your position, you will find that a new self image is needed. You will have to go beyond the old concepts of self and create a new image. The Aries shift is destined to push you to be your true self regardless of whether you are moving up or down in status. The requirement of the shift is to bring out your true self. The casings of image may be built upon facades from childhood, your work, your marriage, your past, your capabilities or some other concept built from the outside world. This image will be stripped away giving you the opportunity to create your new self, without anything but real qualities. This is a very exciting time as you now have the opportunity to re-invent yourself, to make different choices, to determine how your old self was formulated and to revise the person that you want to be.

As Uranus moves into Aries and pushes you to become the person you truly are, you may find that your environment changes also, especially the environment and props that created the old facade. When the old environment is gone like an old movie set, you are left in the middle of the picture with an old image, old costumes and old script.

April 2014 Highlights

April becomes a very important and powerful month. As a universal ELEVEN/TWO month, tall demands set the pace. ELEVEN is a master number, which requires sensitivity and vision to drive situations into new directions. While being positive and optimistic, a new vision becomes the journey. Being placed in challenging situations allows you to see what needs to be changed, yet being placed on the hot seat becomes uncomfortable. Rather than being engulfed with the plight of the environment, a stronger drive to bring change to the situations is the higher purpose of the circumstances. To rise above your personal station to see the need to take action on your vision, the ELEVEN must bring forward the very qualities of purpose and passion. The major changes set for the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd beckon the shifts and solutions needed. Moving beyond the old ways of operating to implement and unfold new ways requires courage, inspiration and standing true to yourself. Allow the winds of change to blow, while maintaining your vision, purpose and passion. The inner strength needed to maintain the higher ELEVEN path rather than reduce to the TWO, which will be battered by the winds, is the purpose and the challenge of April. It is easy to stand true to yourself in a harmonious environment, but the strength of your commitment to Truth becomes visible when the winds of change blow. Maintaining the ELEVEN becomes the incredible journey of April.
