The Great Awakener

Aug 1, 2022

 

 

URANUS – THE GREAT AWAKENER

 

Many years ago, way before I was interested in astrology, I met someone who changed my life forever. Before meeting her, I was in a long stupor, and sleepwalking through life. Then suddenly, this lady whirl winded into my life in a flash, and just as fast, whirl winded out of it. Unbeknownst to her, she served as a key catalyst for change in my life. During those months and afterwards, I called her the Awakener because of the role she played.

 

 

Fast forward a few years later, I discovered astrology, and of course I looked at her chart to investigate, and sure enough, Uranus was one of her dominant archetypal energies. Also, her Aquarius Sun was in a near exact conjunction with my Venus in Aquarius in the 7th – which is a hallmark of a very strong connection. She carried this Awakener energy so naturally. Our relationship had the Uranian qualities of urgency, electricity, and brevity. It felt like she woke me up from a coma with shock paddles to the chest of my flat lined life.

 

 

I tell this story as a metaphor of what Uranus can feel like. Uranus – the God of Earthquakes and Lightening Bolts – is the dominant energy of this month. This archetypal complex is strong throughout August. We start off the month with a firecracker of a triple conjunction of Mars/Uranus/north node and they are all square to Saturn. This will all come to a head on the 11th when we have the full moon in Aquarius activating all those planets. Then, in the last half of the month Uranus will be stationing and going retrograde on the 24th.

 

 

 

 

 

A good title for this month is “expect the unexpected”. If you think about it, that cliche doesn’t make any sense, but Mars/Uranus conjunctions usually bring about alarming events amongst the collective that have rebellion as a motivating factor. What tends to bubble up to the surface of the collective is an urge to quickly fight back (Mars/Uranus) against the limitations imposed upon us (Saturn). As I mentioned in my recent YouTube video (https://youtu.be/LHaUzHj_URo), public uprisings are occurring in many countries around the world, and this will continue to gain momentum in August.

 

Saturn – The Greater Malefic – represents the forces in life that limit, impose restrictions, slow things down, and control. Saturn is also known as the Lord of Karma though, which is the cosmic paycheck. All the darker manifestations of Saturnian energy reaching a head with a karmic balancing as Saturn meets headfirst with the wrecking ball energy of Mars/Uranus/north node. A great reckoning by the Great Awakener. It’s a great time to break free from outdated structures in our personal lives and in the world. Enough is enough. Look to where Uranus and Mars are transiting through your own chart to understand where this explosive energy is focused in your life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve been in a bit of a collective stupor the last couple years as we’ve navigated the challenges presented to us, and people in power took full advantage of a bad situation.  Now along comes Uranus/Mars square Saturn to Awaken even more folks to freer possibilities. Uranus represents the evolutionary goal to individuate, and the part of us that wants to buck parts of the system that are overly conformist and dictatorial. Many will shift their views this month, and get jolted into a course correction that is more in alignment with their Higher Soul, instead of who they have been trained to be by others in this current incarnation. That is the whole process of individuation, to become a truer version of yourself.

 

 

On a more personal level, as we each navigate this electric month, a good strategy is to be keenly aware about what excites you in your life. Try to find those live wires and follow them wherever they lead you. Down those invigorating paths is a more liberated expression of your quintessence.

 

These energies are really accentuated until the end of the year, but the main hot spots are August, and October/November. Although these energies are quite chaotic at times, underlying the potential chaos is a sense of purposeful change, as we hopefully align with a timeline that’s more liberated.

 

 

Short and sweet, but these are the core evolutionary intentions, with the goal always – to expand our consciousness.
