I’ve been reading various astrologer’s takes on what we can expect this coming year and thought I would share a few of those posts with you. These are tumultuous times and with Uranus as a key player the old adage “expect the unexpected” will probably apply.
Astrologer, Fredrick Woodruff, has a humorous but informative post on what he sees as important to understanding how to navigate 2014.
One of my favorites, Ralfee Finn of Aquarium Age, whose gentle, thoughtful approach is always a pleasure has an excellent post on how to handle this year’s challenges.
Jeff Jawer of StarIQ is another astrologer who I have found very insightful and who offers sound, pragmatic advice has this article on 2014:
Last but not is the gifted mundane astrologer, Richard Nolle of Astropro. He is the one who came up with the Super Moon concept as well as Venus Max and Mars Max. He does come across on the gloomy side but even he likens the changes the Uranus-Pluto square has and is bringing to a soufflé settling rather than huge, wide spread catastrophic changes.
One additional thought I had has to do with Pluto and the major shift in what retirement will means to the Boomer generation. As I’ve been telling people for the last several years, the so called “golden years” enjoyed by the Pluto in Cancer generation is history. Saturn in Scorpio has one more year plus a couple of months in 2015 of squaring Pluto in Leo in boomer charts, revealing to many how seriously underfunded their retirements are. This is a worldwide phenomenon, not just something here in the USA. Here is a link to an excellent article:
Pluto in Capricorn is in the process of reshaping our expectations regarding money and debt as well as bringing home the value of living frugally. The Pluto in Leo generation has always tended to have entitlement issues and watching their expectations for an extravagant retirement traveling, playing and living large dissolve before their eyes since 2008 has been painful.
The groups of people I see as most likely to undergo a radical change of some type are those with a natal Uranus in the cardinal signs from 10° to 15°. The oldest group are in their early eighties with Uranus in Aries are undergoing their Uranus Return, next are those in their early sixties experiencing their second Uranus square Uranus in Cancer, followed by people in their late thirties-early forties entering mid-life crisis mode with Uranus opposing Uranus in Libra, and the youngest group in their early twenties with Uranus in Capricorn are undergoing their first Uranus square Uranus. If you are in one of these target groups and have your natal Uranus aspecting your personal planets or Ascendant, it will increase the likelihood you will make some radical, unanticipated choices this coming year. Hang on to your hats!
