“Rebellion cannot exist without a strange form of love.”
― Albert Camus,
Revolution is is the air as Uranus stations retro and there is a whiff of strange love in the air. Do you feel the wild stirrings of your spirit? It’s coming, wait for it. A very good question to ask yourself- WHAT DOES REVOLUTION MEAN TO ME? Do I know how to revolt or am I am pushover? Am I experiencing this STRANGE LOVE? Hmmm….?!?
And at all times- EXPECT THE FREAKING’ UNEXPECTED, honey! After all, it’s Uranus!
“Uranus was known by the ancients under another name.” (S.D. Vol. I, 126) ~~HPB
Uranus, unlike the others, is named from a figure in Greek mythology rather than Roman, from the Latin version of the Greek god of the sky, Ouranos(URANUS). Uranus has a ring system, a magnetosphere, and numerous moons just like a Saturn, Jupiter or Neptune. The axis of Uranus is tilted sideways which makes it unique and therefore its North and South poles lie where most planets have their equators.
Uranus is connected with the night sky, and Váruṇa is the god of the sky and the celestial ocean, which is connected with the Milky Way. His daughter Lakshmi is said to have arisen from an ocean of milk, a myth similar to the myth of Aphrodite. ~~WIKI
This MARS/SUN conjunction that happens about every two years got me all fired up to write this article. I did not know when I will write again, although it is second to breathing. But too much is happening in my life…and as if there is no pause button!
Yes my Peeps, Uranus goes retrograde on the 3rd of August and the ADVENTURE JUST GOT STARTED. I do not know how to express my love for Uranus, because words cannot do justice to the quirky and unconventional Uranian energy which is EVER MORE POWERFUL WHEN RETRO. And baby oh baby, I like UNCONVENTIONAL. The vibe is screaming- GET REAL FOLKS…It’s a new day! Smell the bloody roses! 2+2 is 4, although in some cases it might not be. But the laws of mathematics are not caving in, not just yet. The hologram holds…
If something is not in sync with your SOUL GROWTH, then URANUS RETRO will ensure that you are made aware of it. A bad relationship? Then break up! WTF are you moping for, says Uranus? Want to quit your job to travel to the Himalayas. JUST DO IT! Wait no more. At the end, you will remember climbing that mountain, not how much you have in the bank!
So I was looking at someone’s chart today and their natal Uranus is Retrograde in Scorpio! Waoh! I will get back to this. Now my natal Uranus is also in Scorpio in my third house, but not retrograde. Whew! Explaining retro Uranus in the natal chart in a bit.
Uranus was in Scorpio from September 1975 until November 1981 – 1975 was a turning point year in which the alternatives of the 1960s became mainstream. A great interest in occultism, New Age phenomena and changes in sexual awareness, spying by electronic means, computer development and sudden changes and extremes in investment situations. ~~lynnkoiner.com
Are you born in this time? Then your natal Uranus is in Scorpio my Beloved! Just like me. But, but, but…my Uranus is direct! Yipee! Or else there would be a clash in expressing my eccentricities and that would not work! So thankfully not a retro Uranus to deal with, but wait are retro planets just a nuisance?
In classical western astrology, to reference the Anthology by Vettius Valens from the beginning of our era, as well as the later classical authors, retrograde planets (as opposed to stationary ones) were considered unambiguously detrimental. ~~Gregory Rozek
But all is not evil about the retro planets in modern astro. Nope. Retrogradation does not quantify a planet’s energy as being EVIL, NEGATIVE or CRIPPLING. On the other hand, a retrograde planet in the natal chart often signifies the INNER QUEST or INNER JOURNEY and SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION in that area.
Okay, enough! Let me banter on about my placement.
Albert Einstein had Uranus in the 3rd house!!!
This placement is of the TIRELESS, CLEVER DETECTIVE, the INTREPID INVESTIGATOR. Yes you can find the archetype in Hercules Poirot, in Sherlock Holmes, in Nancy Drew or Five Findouters. But hold on! This is Scorpio we are talking about, so nothing is pretty and pink. It is raw, it is sexual and it is secretive.
In astrology, Uranus is the planet of rapid change, sudden realizations, and seeks freedom beyond boundaries. When Uranus falls into the house of the intellect it results in speeded up thought patterns, ones which are moving faster than the average person. The flashes of Uranus’ insights are often delivered as a kind of mental download, and they usually have no idea about how they have arrived at their conclusion. The mind holds something of a futuristic vision and predicts trends of forthcoming events. There appears to be a link with communicating telepathically, intuitive thinking and thoughts being transmitted. A person born with this placement has a way of illuminating, shocking and waking people up to a different kind of reality.~~http://theastrologyplacemembership.com
Not much to explain here. I have always sought to be free in my writing and speech. I do not think there is a box you see, so thinking outside the box dies not apply to me. Most of the times, I seriously do not think things through, but like to go with the flow. But the most exciting thing is- I AM HERE TO WAKE YOU UP and wake up in the process!
Then I came across another variant-
3rd House in Scorpio
You believe strongly in what you think and say, your opinions and beliefs, and won’t budge from your position. You can dominate other people, are intense in your communications, and overwhelm others. Words can help you transform in life, or you can use your words to help transform others. You’re researching and won’t stop digging into something until you’ve gotten to the core. When something interests you, you can become obsessed with it. You can be too judgemental, and may feel that people should do whatever you tell them to. ~~Darkpixieastrology
This description got me thinking…Yes I do have an overtly domineering aspect to my personality(WHICH I AM TRANSFORMING) and it is true that once I convince myself of something, then I pretty much stick to it. Then the part about words transforming me and my words transforming lives. Well, that’s what Tinaheals is all about. Trying to create ripples in the fabric of consciousness. The butterfly effect!
I think I have spend much of my life researching, obsessing over, dreaming about the occult and hidden. What is hidden enchants me way more than what is visible. I think that might have to do with the Moon aspects in the Seventh house in Pisces. And I am known to be tenacious! No matter how long it takes, how many links I have to traverse, how many pages of Google, I need to circumvent, I do not like the prospect of returning empty handed from my quest. Answers have to be there and there is a certain element of monomaniacal obstinacy here.
If something or someone interests me, then yes, I have to try to get to the bottom of them/it. The mystery is what gets me and often times when the mystery is solved, the enchantment fades away. Hoping that someday the subject of my investigation will inspire me to greater heights. And Uranus in Scorpio wants to research about sex, intimacy, domination/submission and the like…you get the gist.
See the judgemental part comes with this Scorpionic energy, because Scorpio wants to burn away or drown away all the unnecessary and truly merge into the COSMIC ONENESS. And that is why Scorpio is so busy trying to be judgemental because she just wants you to NAVIGATE THROUGH THE SAMSARIC SEAS with utmost dexterity. No one said it would be easy!
Scorpio can be called the “sign of the Disciple” for it is through the path of discipleship the we eventually learn how to effectuate these necessary transmutations of our lower self. It is through Scorpio that the personality enters into battle with the Soul and eventually emerges as the “Victorious One”—the Soul-infused personality. ~~ALICE BAILEY
Hold on there my peeps, the ride is about to get bumpy, as it has been for me, since fucking forever! No stability! No consistency! JUST PURE CHAOS! But then certain souls incarnate to experience all this bump and grind, for the 3D EARTH is their evolving field, their problem solving field and no one likes to solve a problem like Uranus. Not in the conventional way it can be solved, not with boring routine and ritual. Nu-h-ah!
Let me try to delve into a myth, that of Cronos devouring Uranus.
And Ouranos (Sky) came, bringing on night and longing for love, and he lay about Gaia (Earth) spreading himself full upon her. Then the son from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father’s members and cast them away to fall behind him. Hesiod, Theogony 20 ff :“Kronos (Cronus) the crafty counsellor.”
Cronus, or Kronos, was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of Uranus, the sky, and Gaia, the earth. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age. Cronus was usually depicted with a harpe, scythe or a sickle, which was the instrument he used to castrate and depose Uranus, his father. ~~WIKI
What does this mean in the esoteric parlance?
In his turn, when Kronos is represented as mutilating Uranus, his father, the meaning of this mutilation is very simple: Absolute Time is made to become the finite and the conditioned; a portion is robbed from the whole, thus showing that Saturn, the father of the gods, has been transformed from Eternal Duration into a limited Period. Chronos cuts down with his scythe even the longest and (to us) seemingly endless cycles, yet, for all that, limited in Eternity, and puts down with the same scythe the mightiest rebels. Aye, not one will escape the scythe of Time! Praise the god or gods, or flout, one or both, and that scythe will not be made to tremble one millionth of a second in its ascending or descending course. ~~HPB
Uranus which is UNCONDITIONED, is made to become tangible, so that reality aka space/time can manifest. Saturn is a HUGE PART of this physical world manifestation and has much to do with our structures.
Saturn is representative of the Law of Economy on all levels of the personality. It is not an agent of deprivation, as much as it is a testing ground to prove a person’s level of maturity and responsibility in dealing with what he has learned or achieved.
In order for the energies of Uranus to express themselves in a conscious way in a person’s life, he must pass through Saturn’s ~Door~. This means that he has created an integrated personality, linked with the soul force, and is thus a spiritually responsible individual. ~~ALICE BAILEY
Now let me get back to the RETROGRADE URANUS in natal charts which is 40% of the population.
It suggests that in a past life, you may have caused much stress and danger to yourself and loved ones because of your rebellious actions. Experimenting with radical methods and ideas may have caused a crop to fail or a loss in battle. Perhaps your selfish need to stand out and be yourself brought shame and loss to you and your family. ~~ASTROLOGYKING
Sounds stressful? It might seem so if you are looking with a 3D lens, try to see it from a 5D perspective. You might want to check if Uranus is RETRO in your natal chart, so even if it is not at 28 of Aries, where this one will be, you will surely feel it. And you better check what else is placed in Aries around that degree and what house it is.
If you discover that you do indeed have this retro placement of Uranus, then you might be extremely unconventional and freedom loving, but you might show the world a more conventional and conservative approach and attitude. However, when things get out of hand, you tend to have massive meltdowns and get majorly passive aggressive. You just cannot avoid it.
A good thing that comes of this is a HEIGHTENED INTUITIVE AWARENESS and its synthesis; especially if it is in a mystical sign like Pisces or psychic like Scorpio, then you have hit a home run. You rely pretty much on your INTUITION and it usually never lets you down. Of course, you have to practice all those mindfulness exercises, pranayam and the rest. But at the end of the day, practice makes perfect. We have to hone our spiritual powers and develop them by regular practice.
So this person who has this retro Uranus in his chart seems so normal, not at all what one might call unorthodox, but when he opened up to me, I realised how much of himself he keeps bottled up, from his wife, his family, even from himself. He does have a Neptune retro in his chart as well, and even some hard aspects with the moon and Mars, also Pluto. There he was, a picture of perfect sanity, but underneath it all, he was almost ready to explode. He felt totally desensitised and alienated, but could not express these feelings. He did confess to taking things to the very EXTREME before he let it go, and he said, he is getting worse with age!!! Meditation will help him invoke Saturn’s energy to learn to be in balance. Just a small note, in case you have this placement as retro planets can purge repressed feelings especially during transit. TRY IT TODAY!
If you feel exceptionally high strung with this energy, then you need to find a way to channel your CHI, not give into drama and over reacting. Basically wherever this Uranus is placed and if retro, then there is constant CHANGE in that aspect or house. Nothing remains fixed. No plans stick. There is only the incessant beauty of change. Yes it might appear harsh, but it actually helps us TUNE IN like you cannot expect.
Uranus going retro in Aries, which is the first house at the very end degrees, means one thing, that it is time to look within for all the answers. It is not the time to exaggerate and dwell on what is not, but to make use of this SUDDEN, ABRUPT, UNEXPECTEDNESS and create something wonderful with it. Know one thing, this will DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO and will CHALLENGE WHAT WE HOLD DEAR, OUR SENSE OF SECURITY and such heavy issues to do with personal identity and the collective well being.
Uranus retro will force you to look at what needs to go and while doing so, we need not piss people off. Uranus likes to take care of his peeps, you see. But on the subject of going- what needs to go? A certain President or a certain regime? If there is a time to look for the collective good, then it is now. Uranus is all about the COLLECTIVE, like the sign it rules, AQUARIUS. SATURN is the other ruler of AQUARIUS and if you see, SATURN is also all about PEOPLE and the 3D WORLD, it’s structures and authority figures.
Uranus functioning though the soul level has quite a different purpose. As the ruler of Libra, the unfolding of Uranus in the consciousness of one of the Fixed Cross leads to the reversal of the wheel of destiny.~~ALICE BAILEY
It is usually during the Uranus retro period that we really begin to ponder on what FREEDOM means. As an individual. As a society. Do we really feel free? Or are we exploited wage slaves? Forever in debt to the financial systems, forever intimidated by the law and crucified in the courtrooms by the judiciary. That is the modern world- WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER.
“Actual freedom has not increased in proportion to man’s awareness of it.”
― Albert Camus,
I am going to use this retrograde to really investigate more on the human mind and psychology, keeping the SACRED SEXUALITY angle kindled, although Aries is my EIGHTH HOUSE and I have no planets there at 24 to 28 degrees, this still is the HOUSE OF SEX! And the HOUSE OF SCORPIO!
Remember my Uranus is in Scorpio!?! See the pattern?
Returning to this House’s emphasis on sex, it’s important to note that the French refer to an orgasm as ‘le petit mort’ or ‘the little death.’ When we reach that exalted state of communion, we leave a little of ourselves behind — die a small death. One can also choose to view this as growth, a new beginning, the rebirth of the soul or a gain for the partnership. The Eighth House is an equal-opportunity house, placing sex, death and rebirth on the same level playing field and acknowledging the viability and importance of all three. ~~astrology.com
Aren’t you excited to now where this retro will get you going?
Astronomers have discovered that the planet Uranus has a blue ring – only the second found in the Solar System. Like the blue ring of Saturn, it probably owes its existence to an accompanying small moon and it has the most enigmatic weather in the SOLAR SYSTEM and metaphysics tells us that URANUS stimulates the electrical currents through the nadis in the etheric body and brings about complete metamorphosis.
AS ABOVE SO BELOW!
Invoke Uranus my Beloved…dance!!! Dance to the AGE OF AQUARIUS!!!
