Today’s Moon in Sagittarius picks up on the growing tension between Jupiter and Uranus. Facing off at opposite ends, we may have something uncomfortable to own up to — a truth, a belief. How we see the world may be shaking, opening us up to new ways of thinking.
That’s the thing about Uranus. It’s the planet of consciousness, awakenings, and evolution. Like mythical Prometheus, it’s a spark of light in the dark. If Jupiter is the planet that teaches us about the world beyond our four walls, helping us to explore philosophy, religion, and other cultures, then Uranus forces an issue. Is our truth really true? Is our faith enough? Do we need to open up to seeing the world in a different way? And, because Jupiter is in Libra and Uranus in Aries, many of these questions boil down to relationships and how we treat one another.
To make an intermediate astrology point, I like to call Uranus oppositions the “coming out” aspect. Meaning, there is a overwhelmingly restless need to reveal yourself in some way when you experience a Uranus opposition. You can no longer be held back by convention, limitations, or boundaries. This week we may be seeing people do just that, revealing and reinventing themselves in a way that may at first seem shocking or unexpected. But, ultimately, speaks to a next phase of personal evolution. If you are a mutable sign — Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces — you’re likely feeling this in a major corner of your life.
PS — I’m teaching a workshop in New York City on September 26 and by a webinar on September 30 titled “Facing Saturn — How to Find Maturity and Purpose at Any Age“. It’s a look at the different points in our life when we have to face Saturn. If you’re 28-30 years old, this workshop is especially for you. You’re going through the “Saturn Return,” an initiation that happens for everyone when Saturn literally returns to the spot in the sky it occupied at the moment you were born after 29 long years.
If you’re in New York City, the workshop is on Tuesday, September 26 at 7 pm eastern in Manhattan for $40 USD. I’m doing a webinar version for those of you who are outside of New York on Saturday, September 30 at 2 pm eastern for $30 USD including the mp3 recording. It doesn’t matter how much astrology you know. I’ll break things down and show you how to gain a deeper understanding of what you came here to work on and achieve in your life.
