Uranus in Aries
What it Means in General for All the Signs
By Rick DiClemente
Uranus has been electrifying the sign of Aries for over 3 years now. This planet of new inventions, excitement and radical changes has been extremely active but has been a bit eclipsed by all of the other major planetary action from Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces, etc.
The job of Uranus is to renew. If it finds something old and stale, it either disrupts it and updates it, or cracks it. In the latter case, the entity simply can’t keep up with the pressures of evolution.
A big mistake is often accompanied with the planet Uranus; people tend to see this as a force out there. Nothing could be further from the truth: Uranus is that core part of you that wants to be expressed and wants you to be yourself. It is commonly the culprit when you hear people say, “I’m coming out of my skin!” That’s true! In those cases, what has happened is that the inner you simply can’t stand being repressed anymore. And just like a dandelion, its yearning for the Sun will cause it to break through the asphalt.
Keep in mind that not only is Uranus extremely unpredictable and surprising; it is traveling through the aggressive, fiery sign of Aries (Why heck yes! Just go ahead and do it!); it’s also traveling at a right angle (square) to powerful Pluto in Capricorn which makes it much more volatile. Uranus has not been this powerful for a long time. Seen any revolutions lately? Just in the past few weeks it really peaked and will continue to emanate its off-the-wall urges.
What does all of this mean for us pesky humans? This ruling planet of Aquarius makes you “ready”; ready to break old boundaries that heretofore have kept you stuck.
However, it will not do the work for you.
A.ARIES – Unloading its forceful nature in Aries itself, the Ram won’t have any trouble saying what it wants to do. Not a sign to hold back to begin with, Aries folks will be wondering, “Why have I been cramping myself recently just to keep others happy?” This is very simple, it’s clearly time for Aries to launch adventures, where they are in the lead, just to test themselves – just to see what they can do. It’s all green light! Even more so than usual, Aries needs to be careful not to run over people with their aggressiveness – that will serve no one.
B.TAURUS – The Bull may very well have more trouble with this transit than any other sign. Why? Because Uranus will be activating from what is called the Solar Twelfth House. This is the unconscious. Uranus is THE planet of change and disruption, and there is no sign that hates change more. What really is happening is that the Taurean’s unconscious is trying to prompt the conscious mind that it is ready for liberating change. Taurus is stranger to the idea of liberation. Sameness is security for them. Yet, all things get old; it’s just that Taurus is the sign that holds on to the old the longest, often to their dismay. What is likely to happen is that things from the outside world will appear to hassle them. Why so many disruptions? Especially in areas where they are the most settled. They must be aware that what looks to be coming from the outside really emanates from the frustrated unconscious mind that could use a change now and then.
