I was asked to expand on the meaning of Uranus in Aries which I mentioned in last week's blog. Uranus moved into Aries in 2011 and will remain there until 2018. Uranus energy is quick and rebellious and demands change. Uranus also controls electricity and is very much energy on the "cusp of the future."
Uranus has no time for now - it is always looking for what is coming down the pike.
Uranus - and the sign it controls Aquarius, is very interested in humanitarian activity. The irony is that Aquarians can be very detached from individual people but are great lovers of mankind.
The shadow of Uranus is unsettling change, uncontrolled rebellion and erratic motion. It is hard to control lightening in a bottle.
Aries, of course, is the ancient god of war and the archetype is male, aggressive energy. Aries is a Cardinal sign, the sign of the leader and serves a necessary role in giving us our drive, energy and ego. However, the shadow of Aries is ego-centricity and even violence.
This period while Uranus is in Aries should bring us advances in humanitarian causes- people willing to really take up the causes of those less fortunate. I also predict that electronics will take off even more than they have been in recent years.
Unfortunately, we will experience more violence like the shootings in Colorado and Connecticut and perhaps even some erratic dictators on the loose.
The last time Uranus was in Aries was1927 – 1935 in which we saw the following events:
Rise of Third Reich
The Rise of Mahatma Gandhi
Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh
