Mars, Uranus and the North Node meet on August 1st. Since the North node oscillates and Mars likes to trigger a couple of days in advance, we are in for about a two-week period of groundbreaking energy. Everything is about to get a little bumpy… Since this energy is happening in Taurus, I wanted to write a post getting you thinking about how to work gracefully with the energy. Talking leadership in your life means being forewarned and making conscious decisions
First I’d like to start with what each of these planets/points means and how they operate together.
Uranus is revolution, change, and technology. It’s the planet of the unexpected, of surprises and of sudden moves or upsets.
Mars is an action-oriented planet. It’s movement, ambitions, drive, fighting and war.
The North Node is the direction in which we are evolving or meant to be evolving. You’ve likely already become aware of the topics Taurus is bringing up; money (finance, banking, investments), values (our enduring beliefs), valuables (car, house, jewels) and land (agricultural, farming).
So when you add Uranus and Mars to these evolving directions, then you get tectonic shifts in any or all of these areas.
Our governments are guiding the direction in a particular way; implementing new structures; policy, legislation and guidance. Their plan all over the world involves revolutionizing money, food, valuables and even our values. Globally the governments are planning for digital currency, chocolate-covered bugs and other bug food products, and ownership of nothing. New values include a focus on gender inclusion and reducing your habits for the good of the environment, for example flying less or eating less meat. Maybe you are happy with these changes, maybe you don’t really know what they mean or how they will affect you or perhaps you are just plain opposed to the plan.
Wherever you are coming from, things are going to change. What I always say about Uranus, whether in your personal life or in the world at large, is that you need to make it conscious and to make conscious choices around it. If you don’t… it will make choices for you and not always in the direction you would like.
How are people reacting so far? Riots are happening in countries currently going broke, farmers are rising up in Europe against policies that will negatively affect them, inflation is skyrocketing everywhere causing our possessions to hold less and less worth and for people to panic in terms of where to put their hard-earned cash – real estate? Bitcoin? Stocks? Bonds?.. they all look bleak. All of this plus backlash against movements that are trying to shift our values; gender identity, abortion rights, freedom rights and our right to eat meat and potatoes daily!
If you are happy with the direction… enjoy the ride… if not… design your own ride! Like I said, resistance is futile. We must change! Uranus will make sure of that. If you don’t like what is happening, you cannot stand still! You cannot stick your head in the sand and you cannot revolt without a replacement plan. What does your Taurus look like? What is your vision for the future? Don’t like digital currency? What currency system would you have instead? Don’t like eating bugs and no meat? What would you need to do to ensure a table of the foods you love? Make a list of changes to the financial system, food system, and changes in societal values that are pushing your buttons then don’t just take to the streets, dig deep and develop a new way. Like I said, revolting to what we find revolting is not enough… the north node in Taurus wants a redesign!
Let me go back a little bit to share the astrological setup for this…
In 2020 we entered a new economic epoch. This forms the backdrop of economic changes. On December 21, 2020, the Jupiter and Saturn conjunction in the sign of Aquarius started a shift to a new form of economy. One based on air qualities rather than the last 300 or so years of earth. This shift will help to bring us into the age of Aquarius. My personal opinion is that the earth energy for the last 300 years or so enjoyed a centralized system. While earth is concentrated in one spot, the air is defused… it’s decentralized. In fact, we’ve slowly been moving towards it. The internet disrupted everything, decentralizing music, media, travel, transportation, learning and more. To put a cap on further decentralization, governments need to regulate… they need to stop the decentralization of money – crypto such as bitcoin and Ethereum are a big threat. Media has decentralization a little too much for their comfort level, so has the ability to organize and protest. New legislation is all about controlling crowds, controlling media information (revolution), and controlling the currency.
But do we need government? Do they have our best interest at heart? or can that also be decentralized? Pluto has been transforming government and large corporate structures since 2008 and with its stay in Capricorn coming to a close by January 21, 2024, we are seriously questioning “what have you done for me lately?
Intrinsically there is nothing wrong with a new upgrade financial system, or farming system. There is nothing wrong with supporting the environment or even evolving what we can possess. The First Nations owned nothing and didn’t even have a concept of it. Nor is there anything wrong with upgrading our values. Ultimately Taurus wants us ALL to recognize that worth doesn’t belong to just a couple of powerful (Scorpio)… worth belongs to us all (Taurus). And so the more we operate from a place of valuing ourselves, the more that we increase the value of the environment, the things we own, and the food we eat. We treat it with respect as the first nations did, and don’t rely on our governments to direct our behaviour to do so.
As Uranus, Mars and the North Node meet up, the acceleration for changes speeds up. Time to figure out where you stand!
