Mighty Uranus, the Lord of Lightning, takes hold of Venus and Pluto today, which means changes for us.

Uranus stationed direct with the New Moon in Capricorn overnight, which is a signal for change in and of itself.  But Uranus was in an astrological square to Venus and Pluto, which were conjunct (at the same place in the sky) at the New Moon. 

Uranus has been retrograde since July 21, 2014.  When a planet station goes retrograde, it is like pulling back the sling on a slingshot.  When the planet has pulled back as far as it can, it releases and the refined energy floods the field of consciousness.

Uranus brings swift change to put us where we need to be.  Together, Venus and Pluto's themes involve relationships, values, money, sexuality, displays of power, and deep connections and creations from the Great Void.  These are the areas undergoing intensive change and transformation right now, quite noticeably today.

Because Uranus is so electric, like lightning in a bottle, when it is unleashed it is can be very, very dramatic.  It's wild, unpredictable, and oftentimes shocking.  The changes it brings - internally and externally - make profound impact on our lives.

All of that said, Uranus' forward movement is almost in that state of pause or momentary stop before it shoots forward because the energetics of the Earth today inhibit forward movement to some degree.  A sort of limbo hangs in the air.  So we may not see the full power of Uranus stationing direct until tomorrow. 

Venus' energy today also tries to bring vitality - life force - back to us.  It's energy for restoration and regeneration.  This is primarily focused on restoration and regeneration of our physical bodies, but creative projects, ideas, and work also benefit.

"The point of power is in the present moment" as the Seth Books by Jane Roberts tell us, so a hanging pause in the air gives us more time to see the reality of things.  Wise owls remain watchful while the energy is in pause, fully aware that what's going on at the same time is restoration and regeneration.

At the core level, restoration and regeneration with all that is aligned with the true values of freedom, love, beauty, expression, and ingenuity.  Like a bolt of lightning, the power of these things is being unleashed on the world to set things straight.  Today, we watch.
