While yesterday’s exact Saturn-Uranus opposition only made one set of aspects to my natal Venus in Sagittarius (a sextile and trine), it still left me feeling stunned and silenced due in large part to the intense activity leading up to it.
Last week turned out to be a whirlwind of family gatherings at my home. My beloved Aries niece, her Aries husband and their delightful but extremely busy three year old Aquarius daughter came for a visit on Thursday along with both of my sisters and our father. I usually avoid playing hostess for my extended family like [...]
After living with Saturn opposing Uranus since late 2008, the end is in sight with the final exact opposition between Saturn in Libra and Uranus in Aries on July 26, 2010 . . . just five days away.
This opposition has been heralded by many astrologers, including myself, as the clash between the status quo (Saturn) and progressive change (Uranus). Like most of life, the results are faaaaar less clearly delineated. Let me illustrate this with a brief story about some changes in my immediate neighborhood.
About five years ago, the push began to install wind towers in [...]
Be prepared for fireworks and plenty of hot air with the Full Moon in Aquarius opposing the Sun in Leo at 3° 00″ on July 25, 2010 6:37 PM PDT, as there are no planets in water signs in this chart and consequently the ability to empathize with others will be difficult to access.

The Jupiter-Uranus in Aries need to push forward at top speed is being effectively blocked by Saturn and l don’t think this is going to change until after the final Saturn-Uranus opposition on July 26, 2010, if then.
This opposition has to feel very similar to hard aspects between Mars and Saturn, often described as driving with the brakes on. I know I am gradually working down my ‘to do’ list but each task seems to take much longer to accomplish than usual, like walking through deep snow or mud where each step takes extra effort.
All Full Moons are in opposing signs, complementary but on opposite sides of the zodiac wheel, and this one at 6°33′ Sagittarius on May 27, 2010 is only one of several oppositions in this chart making it a great opportunity to review how to work with oppositions in general.
It only makes sense to begin a look at how the Sun in chatty Gemini relates to the Moon in adventurous Sagittarius. In my opinion, the most important factor in any astrological opposition is the signs are in compatible elements, in this case air and fire. Gemini loves learning [...]
