Uranus in Aries
Now Until May 15, 2018
Revolutionary Uranus’ entry into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, is a major signal for collective change. This shocking planet tends to shake the world with surprising events and individual breakthroughs. We are stepping into a new era of human history in which problems and solutions can break out with equal rapidity and in equally unexpected ways. Although it’s the misapplication of technology that is primarily responsible for environmental damage, innovations in power generation and transportation could help us establish a healthier balance with nature. The last time Uranus was in Aries (1927-34) was when Charles Lindbergh made the first transatlantic airplane flight, the discovery of penicillin, the initial television broadcasts and significant developments in quantum physics occurred. We may be on the brink of another technological renaissance.
Aries is the sign of the individual and independent Uranus’ sojourn in this sign marks the next major changes in personal identity. Psychology could make sudden leaps with the reintroduction of psychedelic therapies while rapid advances in brain research may redefine the very notion of self. Electric Uranus in fiery Aries stimulates nervous systems and can simultaneously awaken a newfound sense of genius that initiates millions of brilliant ideas while provoking further alienation for individuals with less adaptable minds. The relationship between humans and computers will grow closer with Uranus in Aries, continuing to blur the lines between them.
It is likely that more radical ideas about our future on this planet will emerge during the next seven years. Breaking away from the old models of biological evolution and religious explanations for our origins is expected. This is a period when humanity reinvents itself with major revisions in our understanding of the self and our relationships to one another. There is a brave new world rising from the sea of the collective unconscious to awaken the next stage of human development.
Some famous folks with Uranus in Aries include Rene Descartes, Oliver Cromwell, Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Edison, Annie Besant, Luther Burbank, Cesar Chavez, Coretta Scott King, Serge Gainsbourg, Maya Angelou, Che Guevara, Noam Chomsky, Philip K. Dick, Ursula Le Guin, Ross Perot, Paul Krasner and Elvis Presley.

Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men.
Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today
The Hourglass is a gentle reminder that time passes and with it goes opportunity. Every moment is a moment we cannot retrieve or relive, and there are no guarantees that what we put off today really can be done tomorrow. The Hourglass urges us to make every second of our lives as rich and fulfilling as we possibly can.
As a daily card, The Hourglass suggest you may be allowing opportunities to pass you by. If you’ve been procrastinating or putting too much of your precious time into activities with no lasting value to you, now is the time for you redirect your energies into actions that will enrich your life.
Meaning: The Romance rune is also a symbol of connection, just like the Rings rune. But differently from the latter, the former implies a deeper sort of connection. While in the Rings we have two (or more) people joining to reach a similar goal, here we have two people joining for reasons they can’t quite explain.
Hence this rune is related to love, passion, emotional bonds, sexual chemistry and sudden attraction. Any strong bond can be symbolized by this rune, including the unconditional parental love or a very strong friendship. And it’s not limited to the emotions that sparkle between individuals – the love can be also directed to an object, a subject or even a work.
It’s important to not limit this rune to the emotional field. It can be quite physical, representing sexual relations, arousal and irresistible magnetism. This rune is powerful, and often gives an extra impulse to any rune that is close it. Charismatic and seductive people are represented by the Romance rune as well.
Outside from the field of romance and sex, this rune is concerned with any act of creation. If you have any ongoing projects, you can be sure an extra impulse will come and spur you on. The Romance rune can also represent the reconciliation of opposite forces or tendencies, and the resolution of conflicts. Obsessive thoughts, stubbornness in pursuing a person or a goal and lack of objectivity are the downfalls of this rune.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today
Adjustment denotes an inner power, mastery of will and development of inner might. Through mastering one’s emotions and learning from both success and failure the person Adjustment represents has reached a place where they are influential without applying physical force, able to weather the roughest of storms, and not likely to abandon the less fortunate. Adjustment also denotes a large capacity for forgiveness and compassion. Adjustment is not as much about winning as it is about achieving balance, overcoming hardship, and using well crafted persuasion to gain allies. Adjustment suggests the need and ability to make our decisions based on objective perceptions of events, and good or bad, accepting responsibility for our actions.

jera : year, harvest
Phonetic equivalent: y (but may be used in place of ‘j’)
- DIVINATORY MEANINGS: change, cycle turning, reward, motion, productivity, inevitable development
- MAGICAL USES: to bring change; for fertility and growth
- ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sif, Thor, Freyr, Granni
- ANALYSIS: In this modern age of central heating and oranges in February, it is difficult to imagine the close ties that people once had with the cycles of the year, particularly in the more Northern climes. The changing seasons affected not only the weather, but also the day to day activities and even the diets of ancient peoples. Constant change was the norm, and the object was to become attuned with those changes, not to fight against them. An ancient farmer (or even some modern ones) wouldn’t need to look at a calendar to tell him when to plant, or read a weather forecast to know when the snows were coming. The changing seasons were a part of his blood and bones, and his very existence depended on adapting to change.
- Jera follows isa just as spring follows winter. The frozen stagnancy of ice is broken by the turning of the wheel, and things are once again moving along as they should. In fact, we have now broken out of the entire set ‘negative’ runes with which we began this aett. This has been accomplished not by fighting to escape the ice or railing against the unfairness of fate, but by learning from those experiences and simply waiting for the inevitable thaw. Jera is the communion wine – the product of the joining of opposites bringing life. Storms may come and go, but the sun is always there and life is generally pretty good. Enjoy it while you can.
