Uranus in Aries, 2011 to 2019, is asking that we all cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. We are under pressure to move with urgency, to remain alert to our self responsibilities and to lighten our vibration so that we are running on a higher frequency. In this time, with the long and enduring pressure coming from Pluto at 90′, we have needed to prove our individual efforts of change. We need to push for a breakthrough. Some will go via the breakdown before they get to the breakthrough. The main point is to keep on moving.
Uranus shows in our charts where we have a tendency to get stuck, to feel bored and stagnant with our lives and our attitudes. As it transits it provokes us to break free of these shackles, to be liberated in our attitudes and to make bold steps of change, inviting risk and daring into our lives. It is where we are to be inventive, inspired and spontaneous.
In the next few weeks (Feb 23rd to March 4th) Uranus will join forces with Mars, the planet that rules Aries. Mars is in Aries from Jan 28th to March 10th. Mars represents our masculine energy, our warrior self, where we have determination, motivation and confrontation. Mars likes to be assertive, at times aggressive and competitive.
Together they can be volatile, quick to over-react, fierce and violent. On the positive side of the spectrum they can be energetically exuberant, loving a challenge and ready to take on the world! They can fire up a situation with adrenaline, daring and excitement.
As with all transits we get to exercise our free will – do we use the energy that is available in a conscious way or do we hit the default button and go with the old unconscious habit. To make the most out of these two fiery and feisty planets teaming up together I suggest we set ourselves a positive, uplifting challenge, breaking new ground of discoveries, daring to step out of our normal routine. It is time to be inventive, motivated and pushing ahead with great surges of adrenaline.
As everyone is influenced by this, no one is exempt, please bear in mind that some people will choose the lower, denser option which will come out as violent outbursts, explosive situations and impulsive reactions. It will be best to stay clear of such explosive situations as they could easily get out of hand.
