is Uranus Going?
Where has it Been?
March 10, 2003, Uranus moves into Pisces for the first time since the 1920s. Uranus
transits through Pisces until September 14, 2003 when it retrogrades back into
Aquarius. Uranus will re-enter Pisces on December 30, 2003 and remain there until
March 12, 2011. Uranus can be unpredictable and erratic and is associated with
change that is often sudden and disruptive. Freedom and individuality are traits
we assign to this planet that seems to invite genius and innovation while it almost
arbitrarily bucks the status quo. Uranus often comes as a sort of cosmic earthquake,
or bolt from the blue, shaking up our lives and societies in order to free us
from inauthenticity. The planet also beckons an enlightened group consciousness
where each individual expresses his/her unique talents and is regarded as an equal
and vital member of the team.
Uranus transited through the sign of its rulership, Aquarius, from 1993 to 2002,
we observed many changes in our world. Explosive and unsustainable growth in technology
and its associated industries and investment properties quickened the rapid pace
of our daily lives. More and more people had computers at home, sent e-mails,
surfed the web, enjoyed digital technology, owned cell phones and Palm Pilots.
Products were introduced, became popular and quickly were replaced by updated
technologies. Alternatively, the cold and calculating potential of Uranus in Aquarius
expressed through extreme individuals and groups warning of the danger of allowing
technology to isolate us from our own hearts and communities. Shortly after Uranus
moved into Aquarius, we were shocked by the Unabomber, the Oklahoma City bombings
and Rabin's assassination. Now, after the events of September 11, 2001, we turn
on the TV and hear everyday about terrorism and the reality of fanatical revolution.
Pisces says that we do not experience an objective, external reality but rather we experience
our own awareness of our reality, our own beliefs, memories and habits of perception
color and influence the world we see. Therefore, as Uranus moves into Pisces,
we can look for shattering revelations in our individual and collective consciousness.
In other words, Uranus in Pisces will provide opportunities for shifts in consciousness
that allows our own authentic and unique selves to emerge out of any artificial
and conditioned consciousness. We can reach a true Pisces understanding that each
of us is connected to the whole and, therefore, has direct
access to the whole for information and guidance. Similarly, as unique members
of the whole, we all contribute to the creation of our perceived, collective reality.
