The intense energy being distributed by Mars moving into opposition with Uranus continues today.  As discussed, things are cracking up, loosening up, and breaking apart.  Yesterday's 7.9 magnitude earthquake off Alaska evidences this.  Uranus is a powerful force.

Uranus moved into Aries, the sign in which it is currently transiting, on March 11, 2011, when the massive 9.1 earthquake was recorded in Japan.

If the energy can do this to the planet, imagine what it is doing to us!

Uranus is not only a powerful force, but it is a force for change.  It brings sudden, unexpected, dramatic changes.  It is like lightning.  Mars' influence adds impulsive, fiery, and aggressive elements.

But the Sun also plays in today as it moves to the 4th degree of Cancer - the energy of "a cat arguing with a mouse" (the degree of Mercury's retrograde).

With this energy, we expect the unexpected, but the combination of these energies tells us that we have a highly emotional (even volatile) day today with increased difficulty in interpersonal and telecommunications, arguments and misunderstandings, projection of anger and aggression (or turning it on yourself), and things coming from out of the blue.  We can also expect things to break apart (and even come back together in a new way).

Just like the Earth's crust, people's psyches crack under these energies.

According to the ancient Gnostics, humanity was never intended to develop in a system with as many planets as ours.  The Gnostics tell us the Divine Beings in the Galactic Center who "coalesced" our genome, Sophia and her male counterpart Thelete, intended us to develop under a Sun, Moon, planet system.  The Archons, nemeses of humanity, created the other planets in their mistaken belief that they are gods.  Nevertheless, we become multi-faceted under the barrage of energies from a multitude of planets.  We become brilliant.

Though everyone is experiencing this, if you have a planet located at 13-19 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, you are undergoing extreme "faceting."  The energy is "upgrading" all of us, but some are destined for massive transformation at this point in time.

To navigate the energy, we will invoke the shamanic skill of being like a wise old owl in a tree, peering out and observing what is happening, but out of the maelstrom.  We understand the nature of the energy in which we are bathed and adjust accordingly.

If you are prompted to make a change or if Uranus is making a change for you, trust that this is in Divine Order.  At it's highest octave, Uranus puts us where we need to be (emotionally, mentally, physically) when we haven't been able to do it for ourselves.  My teacher always said, "We are saved by our rejections."

Emotions lead us to inner wisdom today.  Follow along, but remember that a sage accompanies us - the Wisdom Goddess Bagalamukhi.  On these final days of our journey and instruction with her this year, call upon her for assistance if things become overwhelming.  She will steer you back on course.

(Note: The exact opposition of Mars and Uranus occurs tomorrow, Wednesday, June 25 at 4:25 am ET/ 8:25 UT.)
