Heads up! Today, Mars moves into exact opposition with UranusThis dynamic has been building all week and peaks today. When Mars and Uranus are in opposition, opposition and conflict tend to arise. Mars is active, assertive, aggressive energy, and Uranus brings sudden changes and surprises. Anger flies. Accidents happen. Everything that happens, everything that is said, and everything that comes from out of the blue is supposed to happen, and it is supposed to catalyze change.
To give you an idea of the magnitude, the opposition of Mars and Uranus only happens once every 687 days (unless Mars retrogrades, in which case it would happen two times).
So for the best read on the core energy of what Mars and Uranus are bringing us, we look to the Sabian symbols, which are creative images that encode spiritual science - the music of the spheres, if you will. The 360 degrees of the zodiac define the electro-magnetic-harmonic frequencies of energy through which life spirals and develops. I am pretty sure Tesla would have been into the Sabian symbols. Which science-minded wise owl out there will see the bridge between the Sabian symbols and technology?
The Sabian symbol for the location of Mars is "a retired sea captain watches ships entering and leaving the harbor." We sit back and watch as things come and go, contemplating our inner world and how it relates to the outer world..
The Sabian symbol for the location of Uranus is "two prim spinsters sitting together in silence." Together, we sit back and watch as things come and go, recognizing that we may be missing out on something.
Both symbols indicate a withdrawal, but this is contrary to the natures of Mars and Uranus, which want action and change.
Note also that the characters in both symbols are more "mature." This would imply experience and therefore wisdom, which coincides nicely with the location of the Earth today at "a large archaic volume reveals traditional wisdom." Ancient sources of knowledge are highlighted.
An aspect of Mars that is not well understood is its potential to bring feelings of depression. This is because depression is anger turned inward. The energy of the Mars-Uranus opposition can just as easily produce this polarity as much as it can produce the anger and aggression polarity. The energy will move, either outwardly or inwardly.
The position of Venus today enhances things going into the depths, as it is located at the degree of "deep sea divers."
The position of Mercury today enhances things taking over, as it is located at the degree of "an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe."
We can navigate all of this energy by recognizing that it wants to MOVE things and CHANGE them, so moving our bodies will be very helpful. It is also helpful to not immediately judge anything that comes up. It is most likely a positive thing, not a negative thing at all. The silver lining that Uranus brings is rarely seen at the time of Uranus' surprises. Later, we are able to look back, like a retired sea captain watching ships entering and leaving a harbor, and see how if "x" had not happened, then "y" would not have happened.
Uranus is moving retrograde (backwards) until December 26, so the way things are now is not exactly how they will be later.
Uranus is also still in conjunction (at the same area in the sky) as the Eris Point, the degree where the planet Eris was located when it was discovered. The Eris Point encapsulates all of the themes of Eris into one; it is a mighty powerhouse. Eris is also twin sister to Mars; both can do battle when needed.
In the past, the Illuminati made swift use of false flags with aspects of Mars and the Eris Point (Boston bombing, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, Volgograd train bombings). Since March, the past several aspects of Mars to the Eris Point have come and gone without incident. (For more information on the planet Eris and its role in the awakening to truth, my book is available for free download on the Books tab.) We remain watchful.
Today we are watchful owls all the way around. We move with the changes. We reflect on what is being revealed to us.
And we give thanks, on this last day of the lunar month, for the blessing of darkness being parted to open new pathways.
