astrology, Planets!!!

Uranus

Uranus is a pale blue planet with a ring going from pole to pole around it. It is the seventh planet in the solar system. Surprisingly enough Uranus is visible to the naked eye, and it moves in an unusual pattern, on its side with a 98-degree tilt. It takes about 84 years to orbit the sun lasting in one sign for seven to eight years depending if the motion of the planet is direct, or in the various stages of retrograde.

Uranus is part of the modern planetary system there is no traditional day as there were for the first seven planets. It co-rules the 11th house with Saturn it is the energy that radically pushes to maintain survival. Though the push is not a firey force, it is a detach logical necessary to move forward. Also, there is only one zodiac sign under its rulership that is Aquarius. The elemental energy attributed to this oddball is air modality is fixed and it, so far, has a masculine expression.  Uranus in astrology is about sudden changes, originality, experimentation, pushing the boundaries, and governing the mass conscious mind.

Where ever this planet is in a natal chart will tell where that person will push for something outside of the social norms, can more easily be detached, and where ingenuity can be expressed. Those with Uranus as the lord of their chart will, in part, push social norms, have a pronounced quirk about them, have the potential of brilliance and quick mental faculties. Whenever Uranus is transiting a house or a planet in the natal chart, things will start to shake up a bit sudden breaks can happen, or sudden change.

Metaphysically this is a planet I would suggest you study more if you want to work with it. The outer planets work on broader scales and can become more than we can handle at times. This is a very revolutionary planet if you want to work with Uranus hold tight and hope you come out okay enough to continue on.

The Planets!!!!

Western astrology is a geocentric alchemical art relating the zodiac and movement of the planets to what happens here on earth. Astrology goes with one of the universal laws, the law of correspondence. Modern astrology has 10 planets with the Sun and Moon considered as planets. Here is a list of those planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto. Each planet governs either one or two zodiac signs. Within astrology, it is good to know there are 7 traditional and 3 modern planets. Now, the next few sentences bleed into occult and alchemy but as this blog progresses, it will make sense. The traditional planets rules correlate to the 7 vowels- a, e, i, o, u, w, y; The 7 days of the week starting with the Moon in the U.S.- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday; and the 8 octaves C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C beginning and ending with Saturn.

So let’s talk more about the 7 traditional planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Five out of the seven planets rule two zodiac signs giving a masculine and feminine quality to those five astrological planets. Mercury has Gemini as the masculine and Virgo as the feminine. Venus has Libra as the masculine and Taurus as the feminine. Mars has Aries as the masculine and Scorpio as the Feminine. Jupiter has Sagittarius as the masculine and Pisces as the feminine. Saturn has Aquarius as the masculine and Capricorn as the feminine.  Only those five planet ruling two signs are able to go retrograde- an easy way to explain retrograde planets are expressed in the feminine aspect, or the planet turned inward, with a Saturnian quality to them. I will elaborate more when I get to the retrograde planet blogs. The Sun and Moon only rule one sign each, Leo and Cancer respectively.  Also, they will never go retrograde. This is because the Sun and Moon are already internal in us.  The Sun being the Ego while the Moon the inner mind and emotions.

The Modern system has the additional three outer planets: Uranus ruling Aquarius only, Neptune ruling Pisces only, and Pluto ruling Scorpio only.  Retrogrades with these planets make the energies of them difficult to express and stronger in our lives. It is good to know these are very slow moving planets. Because they move so slow they stay in a zodiac sign long enough to affect generations of people. Hence why they are also called generational planets.  Each planet governs an aspect of society at large. Uranus shows how a generation, or a person changes and rebels bringing in a new era. Neptune is the unconscious influence of a society. Pluto is the destructive or transformative aspect of a society.

That is all for the intro of the Planets.  I can’t wait to get into the details of each and every one of them!!!!

astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Aquarius 1.0

AAaquariuss! Aquarius is the water bearer. This is a fixed air sign coming from the eleventh house of hopes and dreams, the collective conscious, and groups. The time period for this house is from January 20th to February 18th. Aquarius has two ruling planets, Saturn and Uranus. With Saturn, Aquarius is the Masculine aspect, and for Uranus, Aquarius is the sole aspect. In Greek mythology, Aquarius is a Trojan prince by the name of Ganymede. Ganymede was a youth who caught Zeus’ eye.  Zeus then became an eagle taking the boy to mount Olympus setting Ganymede as the cupbearer for the gods. He became immortal at the hands of Zeus later became a constellation because of his kindness. Mainly because he plead to Zeus on behalf of humanity for rain. There is more to this story, but that is the gist of Aquarius. Uranus is the planet/god to look at with Aquarius. He is not an Olympian, but a Titan. He is the god of the sky. To say a god is a sky god is to say he is the highest god in the pantheon. Uranus was later overthrown by his son Cronos, the god Saturn, by castration.

Soo, moving on to Aquarius. This is the sign is loyal to ideas, and progression. They are seen as weird or futuristic being a reason why this is linked to the scientist. Aquarius plays devil’s advocate with contemporary thought usually leaning towards egalitarianism. They are logical people wanting reason to govern over everything else. The water-bearer is able to detach themselves from others being in a group but maintain individuality. They are efficient and stable with their emotions, and will not quickly change how they feel about something do to outside influences. They enjoy exchanging ideas by learning and socializing enjoying someone there to hear their thoughts. Romanticly, they partner with people that have strong sun or fire placements. Their partners seem childish and playful. Usually, the other half of the Aquarius is self-centered. In the social aspect, they attract people to them but just existing. They are unexplainable magnetic. Career-wise Aquarius could be anything that will constitute transformation on a large scale.

Their phrase is I know.
