Hello dear Readers and Friends, I’ve been mulling over Uranus in Taurus for awhile now, sending my mind into the future to see what I could see… Uranus is the planet of the unexpected, the lightning bolt of inspiration, innovation, intuition, and invention. Uranus rules all things that save time, money, and labor for large groups of people. So from that we see Uranus representing aviation, the space program, computers and all things electronic, and many gadgets that are quite clever. A cute example is the robot that cleans your floors.  Uranus rules Aquarius and also symbolizes all friends and groups — informal groups and also labor unions, fraternal organizations, charitable groups, etc.  It’s not about just socializing because the reason those groups come together has a purpose beyond the pleasure of the moment. Think barn-building and quilting bees, historical examples of Uranus in action. Uranus/Aquarius also rules astrology.

Now that Uranus is in Taurus, the first thing I see is that Taurus, slow and steady and a creature of fixed habits, is not comfortable with change, especially the quick and abrupt nature of Uranian change. Taurus rules banks. Look at what happening with them — the world of fintech is forcing the old, conservative banking institutions to adapt or die, to paraphrase Darwin. There’s new ways to move money around the globe, make payments, crypto-currencies, blockchains, etc. We haven’t even seen all the changes that are coming with the speed of light.

Taurus rules hobbies, talents, auctions, wholesale connections, money and resources under our personal control. It also is the symbol for our core values. Scorpio, the opposite sign, is where all the above are shared.  The disruptive technology of Uranus has put many companies out of business already and this is just the beginning, offering new industries to take their place. An example would be the revolt against the cable companies. Roke, Hulu, Sling, and many others have emerged, forcing the cable companies to offer more individual bundles, etc.

Taurus rules trees. I haven’t been able to figure out where this is going but I suspect that there’s already research going on to breed trees that only flourish in a narrow climate zone become more adaptable as the climate changes. Personally, I hope the tree scientists can help us obtain vanilla extract and chocolate at an affordable price — I like to bake!!

Since Taurus rules wood, keep your eye on the Home Shows as new products to replace wood are coming to market. The price of lumber contracts on the commodity exchange is already much higher than just a few years ago. I saw an interesting flooring, a combination of wood, cork, and vinyl, and of course bamboo, a renewable resource,  is regenerated more quickly than trees.  I mentioned hemp in an earlier post, and this, too can be made into paper. Save the trees may indeed become a big issue…

More and more people, especially young people are running side gigs to make their own financial security, using all kinds of new technology to do business remotely. There’s even a child of 7 on U-Tube who made a million reviewing toys for other kids and their parents. Amazing !! And this trend is just beginning. People with a few planets in their 2nd house are often quite successful turning a hobby into a career.

Uranus is freedom. Freedom from what? What makes you feel free? Getting out from under the corporate thumb? More free time to do what you love? Freedom from electrical and gasoline bills?  Money is crystalized time and energy.  What you spend your money on says a lot about who you are. Taurus is about our core values. What are your deepest belief systems? Especially in the areas of friendship and group activities. The implied square of this transit will ask all of us to review our friendships and look for true rapport, not just surface compatibility. Honestly, I don’t know how to predict how this transit will affect each of you personally.  I can tell you things I have observed from watching Uranus transit through the different houses. With Uranus, anything can happen…

For example, having Uranus transit through your 1st house is a little bit like a mid-life crisis, no matter how old you are. There will be a strong desire to be an individual, do your own thing, rebel against the status quo. Maybe you dye your hair green, or quit your safe job and strike out on your own. Maybe you decide to get involved with a social cause dear to your heart. The first house is how we express ourselves to the outside world.  Ben Franklin once said, “The best way to have a good friend is to be one.”  I read another saying — a true friend rejoices with our victories and commiserates with our sorrows.  The classic book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, by Dale Carnegie, is a good resource. There’s also a lot of stuff in it about prosperity, too.

Time to close for now. More Uranus through the houses soon. Blessings, Jenae.

11-8-2018 to 12-2 2019

Good Evening dear Friends and Readers, let’s continue with the Jupiter transits through the houses. If you have Gemini rising, then Jupiter transiting Sagittarius would be most likely in your 7th house of partnerships. Now this house is really ANY important one on one relationship, not just marriage, and not just the piece of paper either. The 7th can symbolize business partnerships, mentor/teacher/student relationships, even open enemies. I have seen people both marry and divorce when either Jupiter OR Saturn transits through their 7th.  Looking at this transit another way, your luck and growth is likely to come to you through your partner. Sure, maybe they get a raise or a promotion, but what about your partner introducing to some kind of new learning and growth? It may be a hobby they have a passion for, but it could also be something new the two of you do together.  Maybe you learn a new language? Whatever it is, it can grow in importance in your life over the next 12 years. Meanwhile, THIS year, watch the time management. Your partner could be over-optimistic about planning their schedule.

If you have Taurus rising, the Jupiter in Sag will transit your 8th house of shared money, love, and power. This is the house that rules other peoples’ money, like mutual funds and group investments. The 8th is taxes, insurance, inheritance, and Jupiter here makes it easier to get a loan. Just don’t go overboard. Since Sag is one of the legal signs (Libra is the other), it would behoove you to file your taxes most carefully. Err on the side of caution.  Pay attention to all tax and insurance matters.  Inheritance is certainly possible, but the whole chart must concur…not just one planet. Besides, people inherit more than money. A dear one in your life may gift you with something they think you will treasure. Books, art, furniture, a music collection — it could be anything.  If you decide to buy into a time share vacation home or  condo, be sure to read all the rules FIRST! And ask questions !! I have heard that it can be very difficult to get out of these investments, should you get older or just change your mind later. Jupiter in the 8th should mean there is enough money to travel and romance can blossom during trips away from home…

Aries rising means Jupiter will transit Sag in your 9th house, its OWN house, so you get a double dose of travel, laughter, new experiences and new physical activities.  Outdoor life calls you.  Sports, too. This is an excellent transit to further your education, whether it’s school or self-study. If you need licensing or certification to pursue your career this is a good year to get it.  The 9th rules metaphysics and philosophy, so maybe you go to classes or a workshop to learn more about how the Universe works.  For the first time in history, all the information is available to us… to deeply understand how things work and how to create the life you want. You may meet people from other countries. Foreign and/or ancient cultures may interest you. The I Ching (China), Runes (Vikings), etc. are ancient methods of divination that you can use without anyone else’s help. Tarot is old but takes a lot of study. I like to recommend the simpler systems to people who are just beginning to learn about metaphysics. There’s another deck of cards that I recommend to my clients. Doreen Virtue has many decks, but this one in particular is called Angels and Saints. It’s very simple to use and most helpful to everyone I know who has tried it, myself included. Don’t be surprised if you meet a teacher this year.

Pisces rising means Jupiter in Sag will be transiting your 10th house of career, reputation, and public life. Usually this transit brings an increase in your stature at work. Guard your reputation and don’t play mind games. Live your life as if it will be tomorrow’s front page news.  People in many businesses may find themselves travelling more to workshops and tradeshows. Or a person could appear from far away to provide your business with training on site.  Jupiter in Sag could mean the government has new rules that apply to your career, or there could be legal issues that change the big picture. Not necessarily negative, just changes. If you need to get more advanced licensing or credentials to continue in your chosen career, then this is a very good year to fulfill those requirements. Some people with Jupiter in Sag in their 10th will relocate overseas for a new job. Others may seek new jobs with better pay and opportunities. This is a year for you to stretch and grow in your public or professional life. The Sag colors are royal blue and turquoise. Find ways to incorporate those colors at work :))

Aquarius rising means Jupiter is in your 11th house of friends, groups, and hopes and wishes for the future. No better transit to either take a class or teach a class. Teamwork and cooperation should prevail and you can make new friends who will last a lifetime. Follow your heart, your passion, and your aspiration when choosing what kind of class to take or teach. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it has a positive effect on the participants and everyone is 100% committed.  The 11th house also symbolizes all humanitarian groups and clubs, where people come together to make a better world. If this appeals to you, you could find some kind of large project is planned for your community, or even larger. The same things applies — you can meet great people and develop skills you didn’t even know you had :)) The 11th house also rules astrology, so studying your chart and the art itself can bring you unexpected benefits. I began my studies 50 years ago, hard to believe, but I started young and I have never lost my enthusiasm and passion.  Aquarius rising means you have a gift for understanding astrology and it will make your life both easier and more fun :))

If you have Capricorn rising, Jupiter in Sag in your 12th is a more subtle transit since this is a hidden and behind the scenes house. Jupiter here offers you help on a spiritual level. Cap rising has a lot going on that could be challenging — Saturn in your 1st, Pluto in your 1st, and depending on the rest of the chart you could even be facing quite the crisis. It may have to do with work but it also could be health changes. Jupiter in the 12th, which also rules hospitals, means you would receive very good care. That doesn’t absolve you of responsibility, though. The first rule of Saturn in your 1st is to take responsibility to ensure your good health — whether that means improved nutrition, more exercise, more naps, researching any medicines that are prescribed, etc.  The blessing of Jupiter in your 12th is no matter what’s going on, you have a lot of help from your guides and angels and from loved ones on the other side. This loving support can help you weather the crisis and emerge stronger spiritually. A lot of people with Cap rising ARE facing career changes. Saturn and Pluto may put enough pressure on you that you decide to go for a new job with more responsibility, and the courage to try something new ends up totally transforming your life in a positive way. I have seen this happen over and over again since Pluto entered Capricorn years ago and now with Saturn also in Cap, it’s a now or never kind of transit. It’s a great time to focus on yourself and strengthen any weaknesses. Have an honest conversation with yourself about just what those weaknesses are. Jupiter in the 12th will help you.

Hope this blog helped all of you :)) Happy Holidays…Jenae

Hello dear Friends and Readers, Uranus takes approximately 7 years to transit through a sign or a house. Or 84 years to go around the wheel. This year, Uranus entered Taurus on 5-15-2018, but it retrogrades back into the last few degrees of Aries from November 6 to March 7, 2019 when it re-enters Taurus and stays in Taurus for the next 6-7 years.

Uranus is a disruptive planet; it’s the lightning bolt of invention, intuition, and inspiration.  It’s action is quick. In individuals’ charts, this planet often act suddenly. If something is removed or taken away from you, it’s to make room for growth, like pruning a fruit tree. It can work in the opposite way, too, bringing in new ideas, hobbies, new people into your life suddenly as a catalyst for growth. We could say that Uranus rules technology, though Mercury plays a role, too. Uranus rules aviation, the space program, the Internet, and all friends and groups that come together for a common purpose.

I hope to write more later about how individuals can be affected by this transit, but for now I’ve just been observing the world and trying to tune into what’s on the horizon. Here’s what I’ve noticed so far…Taurus rules banks and trees…

We’ve all become familiar with the disruptive technology that is changing the world. Banks tend to be stodgy and conservative. Now they are being forced to change. Adapt or die, said Darwin… Enter Crypto currencies, Pay Pal, Venmo, Square, etc. — all new ways of moving money around digitally. Suddenly banks are having to adapt. Now people can deposit checks into their bank account by phone. All kinds of new things are happening with money and banks and this trend will continue…

Back in the early days of our Republic, the Founding Fathers grew hemp. They depended on it for rope and nets and riggings for ships, etc. In modern times hemp has been illegal but now this, too, is changing. I read a few years ago that every day, our earth is losing trees to deforestation the size of Delaware. That’s 48 square miles A DAY, of trees being cut.  If you factor in the devastation of forest fires, the amount may be even larger. Trees use carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. People need oxygen. People need trees. It takes 20 years to grow trees for harvest in warmer climates and up to 40-50 years in cooler ones.  Pulp is used to make paper and cardboard as well as building materials.  Hemp can also be used to make paper,  which would put less pressure on the forests and also provides another crop for farmers. Hemp can also be turned into fabric, and now it has medicinal applications.

There is a company called GW Pharmaceuticals in England that makes a medicine for epilepsy from CBD oil, which is derived from both cannabis and hemp. It has recently received unprecedented approval from the FDA to market its medicine here in the US. Why? BECAUSE IT WORKS! The scientific evidence is there, this can be a medicine that helps children with the worst kind of epilepsy, children that have hundreds of seizures a week.  There are only about 17 anti-seizure medicines available and if they don’t work for a particular patient, then that patient is out of options. Death is possible from seizures.  The CBD medicine is bringing new hope to these very fragile children. Now research is beginning to test CBD on other illnesses and even to come up with a pain medicine that is not addictive and harmful.  I believe that this is another illustration of Uranus at work — that we will see the laws changed in our country and in the world to make these plant medicines available. In the meantime, the farmers are actually making some money growing hemp as a crop in states that have permitted it. Why cut down trees for paper if you can use a quick growing plant instead? Some farmers are growing for the medical market; this part is more strictly regulated and tested. Some plant breeders are creating either cannabis or hemp that yields 17% CDB oil.  New businesses, new opportunities…

Since Taurus rules trees, I see these trends changing the way we use our forests, and inventive people are finding new substitutes for some of the forest products. I think we will always need wood, but the need to protect the trees will also spur new inventions of building materials, too.  This has been going on for awhile, but the changing of the cannabis and hemp laws will speed this up.  Uranus at work.  I was in a health food store a few weeks ago and a beautiful young woman came in looking for CBD products. She said she had just been diagnosed with MS, which is degenerative and incurable at present. She said she had been taking a capsule with CBD oil and felt so much better, that it was better than anything else to relieve her symptoms.  She came in to buy more and settled on a chewable tablet with the same potency.  Is states that allow sales of CBD products the anecdotal evidence is piling up — that CDB can help people with pain, a variety of illnesses, and it can help animals, too.  And the states that don’t allow sales are at least passing laws to allow medical research.  “The times, they are a-changing…”

I will write more on Uranus in Taurus when I see more.  Meanwhile Jupiter will enter Sag on 11-8-18 for a year and I will write for individuals in that post. Stay tuned…Namaste…Jenae
