|Uranus into Aries: Baptism by Fire|
The Summer of 2010 has some important astrological landmarks. For starters, on MAY 27, 2010 we have an astrological holiday (of sorts) Yes, the 'big-doings' in astrology right now center around the movement of the planet Uranus into the sign of Aries on May 27, 2010 - the same day as the Full Moon in Sagittarius. This is a big deal. It is the beginning of a march toward more 'big doings' in August concerning the formation of a Cross in the sky. See below for more information on Jupiter into Aries.
Then, in August, Uranus - newly minted and rip-roaring forward in the sign of Aries - will form a Cross in the sky with three other potently placed planets in the most powerful points of the zodiac (Mars and Saturn in Libra, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, North Node by wide orb in Cancer).
By August, we will have such a turbo-boosted, nearly-impossible-to-contain energy on our hands that we will wonder what happened. (One of those "WHA??" moments) The in-rush could make your head spin. (Oh and P.S. it has already started. You may know what I am talking about if you are one of those who is feeling the PRE-shocks of this energy shift) ----------------------
Uranus has been in Pisces since 2003. This was a very different energy from what we are now plunging into. I have written much on the 'feel' of Uranus in Pisces (go to one of my past newsletters here: http://conta.cc/9NtwBM and scroll down the section entitled "The Highest Possible Outcome: Cultivating an Eel-ectric Underwater Experience"
The way Uranus in Pisces 'felt' was like lightning hitting water and dispersing an electrical charge into the realm of feelings, spirituality, mystical downloads and etc. Uranus' shocking energy was submerged in the ocean of Pisces. It still packed a punch of course, as water conducts electricity and the combination will surely fry you. But it is very different from the fire of electricity (Uranus) meeting the bursting fire of ignition (Aries).
Imagine lighting a fire on your grill in your back-yard - and then lightning hits it. The explosion would be massive. Think of an earthquake. When an earthquake happens, fires break out. Motion can be crushed. Emergency action is required.
With Uranus in Pisces since 2003, your brain and electro-physical-neuro systems probably got fried (think back on the past 7 years...) The ultimate goal of Uranus in Pisces was to 'fry' our emotional circuits and spiritual practices to the point of overload so that we could be re-wired. Indeed, we have taken on profound new levels of spiritual capacity in that time. We literally learned to hold a charge, like an eel in the ocean of consciousness. Coincident with that, however, we also might have felt like our desire to make changes in our lives was watered down, fizzled.
Well those days are over. First of all Uranus in Aries doesn't reserve itself to only the emotional circuits. This kind of energy could cause you to, well, burst into flames. It's a total body experience, as it were. The alchemy is more violent, instant and severe. The results are shocking and happen so quickly you are bewildered. Spontaneous Combustion.
This is quite a powerful spiritual reality. Our personal (and collective!) dross can now be burned off in a heartbeat, with the form changing radically. If we have dross we have been trying to clear and which even metaphorical electrocution (Uranus in Pisces) didn't not burn off, well it will go bye-bye now. And you won't see it coming.

Here's the good news: The impetus to change will have substantial fuel behind it. Here's the bad news: The impetus to change will have substantial fuel behind it. In other words, not only can we make huge strides in our goals and in blazing a trail, we also will be prone to make rash decisions. This is the pitfall. How do we handle the primordial fire? Will it burn us? Or can we harness it? If it burns us to ashes, what will we do with them? Life continues. Form never dies, it only transforms.
Over the next 7 years we will learn to play with incorrigible fire. Holding a charge was a pre-requisite for this new lesson. We will get burned and then we will carry more light, heat, and juice which will blaze a path of change into the future.
Uranus in Aries has such amazing potential for brain-storms! You will be knocked off your socks, baby! We will have the ability download incredible breakthrough information and inspiration while in a cauldron of purification fire. But what's new here is that we will also have the ability to TAKE ACTION on it. No more out to sea.
The Horrific Oil Spill still spewing off the Gulf Coast could be related to the last movements of Uranus in Pisces. As Uranus has been plowing through the last degree of the sign of the ocean (Pisces), the sea blew a gasket (Uranus). You better believe this will create change (Uranus now moving into Aries). As a last hurrah, Uranus helped Neptune (Pisces' go-to guy) to release the Kracken - catalyzing a focus for the new Aries expression.
Pictures of the Oil Spill: http://bit.ly/adVBWt. Live Video of the gushing oil as it emerges deep in the ocean. It has been hemorrhaging for a month and will continue for many more months.
Aries carries a profound level of urgency and pent-up energy hell-bent on release. Let's apply this sense of urgency in a life-saving way. It's an ee-mer-urgency. Be a hero, please come to our rescue:
A MESSAGE OF GREAT URGENCY from Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota Tribe, 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe: "We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and... that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on."

WHAT DOES URANUS IN ARIES FEEL LIKE?
Aries holds the vibe of: War, Pioneering energy, Blind Action, look-before-you-leap, the Mother Bear who kills for her cubs, activists who defend those who cannot defend themselves - sometimes doing so violently, Fierceness, the Blue-painted Celtic warriors in the Mel Gibson movie 'Braveheart', the Scalping done by Native American warriors, the goddesses Sekhmet and Boudaccia, Impulsivenss, sports, gladiators, cardio-vascular health, competition
Uranus holds the vibe of: Revolution, Shocking, Sudden, Breakthrough, keen awareness, progressive, innovative, unique, radical change, Traumatic, Artificial Intelligence, technology, extra-terrestrial energies (anything 'not of this earth'), rebelliousness, anarchy, the upper chakras (27 chakras above the head), alternate realities, parallel universes, time travel, traveling to other dimensions, string theory but WAY beyond - i.e. any kind of leading-edge unknown science or technology which bursts on the scene and changes the game forever, ideas which are vehemently opposed.
Uranus can be brilliant; AND Uranus can be stark-raving crazy. No matter, Uranus is never, ever unseen, unheard, taken-for-granted or ignored. You WILL know it is there. If someone burns down a building - hard to ignore. If someone says: "the world is NOT flat" you will listen. If someone sets the slaves free (Lincoln, an Aquarius) you will take note. You probably won't like the change Uranus brings (because it turns your familiar world upside down) but it's job is to push Humanity forward in progressive leaps of evolution.
Uranus says: The revolution will not be televised. I will sneak up on you. I will flatten your well-crafted corrupt hierarchies which enslave people. I am a unique individual and I will proclaim and live my manifesto until everything is changed. I won't waste time. It will happen while you are sleeping. Wake Up! Democracy NOW! I am ready, willing and able to fight for change.
You WILL know Aries is there as well. The two-year old of the zodiac, Aries WILL have its way. Aries says (sometimes throwing a tantrum) "What's in it for me?? NO! I want, I want! This is what I Want! I will climb the mountain because it is there! Get out of my way! I will compete and I will WIN." Aries seizes life, alive and screaming I AM, I AM! I AM! I Am That I Am. A sheer declaration of existence.
Aries takes a bite out of life. Think of that scene in the movie "Avatar" where the lead character finds himself alighting in his new avatar (his new physical vehicle) and jumps up off the table, running and leaping and feeling the energy of having a body and BEING ALIVE. Aries lives! Reckless like the Ram (its symbol) it sure is. But this lifeforce energy is necessary for anything to exist. The Big Bang comes before the chicken or the egg. Pisces has no self. Aries is pure self, unabashed, vivivied, on fire with the sheer force of existence. We are not merging in with the Godhead here (that's a Pisces thing). Instead we are the pure expression of the Godhead on the cutting-edge of existence.
Aries says: " I will defend my territory to the death, till I see the whites of your eyeballs. Go ahead, make my day, pity the fool." Injustices MUST be righted.
The oil spill at the end of Uranus in Pisces now positions us to take swift and terrible action of reform to prevent the helpless from being violated in this way ever again. The anger (Aries) is palpable. The cries for change (Uranus) are ubiquitous and huge (Jupiter).
Uranus and Aries look at each other and say: It's time for the Revolutionary (Uranus) War (Aries) Stand back.
