Erring on the side caution these days may not be a bad idea with Uranus in Aries getting a boost from Mercury in Leo and Venus in Gemini. We can get waaaay ahead of ourselves in short order and make snap decisions or poor judgment calls based on too little accurate information. What sounds good in the heat of the moment may come back to bite us.
Uranus has many good points, among them the ability to inspire innovative thinking. However it does have dark side when the need to feel free of all constraints can lead to destructive behaviors. Just because we can do something, doesn’t automatically make it a good idea.
Those people with planets from 8 to 15 degrees in Leo and/or Sagittarius have an advantage when dealing with transiting Uranus in Aries as it squares Pluto in Cappy over the next three years because those planets will be trine Uranus. This can soften the impact by giving the energy generated by the square means of expression. I have Saturn conjunct Pluto in Leo anchoring Uranus and it does seem to help. Uranus will be stationing retrograde at 8° Aries on 13 July exactly trine my Saturn . . . good for impulse control which I will need since Uranus will be opposing my vulnerable Libra Moon and Neptune!
FYI – Uranus will only move back to 4° Aries before going direct 13 December 2012, so those of you with planets and Angles from 0° to 3° in the cardinal signs who had it rough the last few years can heave a sigh of relief!
What do you have to help you survive Uranus in Aries? Helpful placements in Leo or Sagittarius? Or vulnerable placements in Cancer or Libra sensitive to Uranus’s pressures? Or like me, a little of both!© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
