Visible Planets: Morning: Mercury and Jupiter  Evening: Venus, Mars and Saturn

Electric Light, Great Good Fortune & Me, Myself and I

Einst_rad The big news this week*** is the “superfund” conjunction of expansive Jupiter and explosive Uranus in impulsive, “it’s all about me” Aries. The exact conjunction of these two planets takes place on June 8th @ 0º18’ Aries, but the buildup to this big event has been happening over the last couple months in god-of-the–sea, Neptune-ruled Pisces.

As I take a look at myself, my world and my neighborhood, I find threads of this dancing duet everywhere. From the exploded oil rig and its gushing black geyser in the oceanic depths of the Gulf of Mexico to the cyberspace invasion of my personal email account last weekend, I see patterns of Uranian shock and Jupiterian excess woven into the fabric and fiber of each event and experience in our recent past and current present. Of course, I’m an astrologer and I “see” the world that way. I know I’m perceiving reality through an astrological lens, and that my view is “tainted” by years of practice, but, it blows my mind anyway – which is a totally Uranus/Jupiter thing to say.

Uranus is wild and revolutionary, electric and exciting. It’s also sudden, disruptive, ingenious and life changing. Uranus rules the Aquarian New Age, the Internet, cyberspace, radio waves and microwaves. It’s all that invisible information coming to us through satellites, cell towers and electric lines, as well as vibrations transmitted via crystals, auras, electro-magnetism and intuition.  It’s when and where we are suddenly “tuned in” to the cosmic or collective consciousness, experience awakenings, break out of ruts and “break on through” to new, uncharted territories and paths to freedom. 
Jupiter is the planet of grand ideas and generous spirit. It is when and where we are optimistic, enthusiastic and largesse. It’s all about exploration and discovery, generosity, philanthropy and giving. It’s the over-the-top, beyond-the-limit planet of good luck, good will and great-good fortune that magnifies, amplifies and expands whatever it touches.  

Images Is it any wonder then, that I’m feeling over-loaded, crazy, wild and at the same time, lucky, grateful and openhearted? And I bet you are, too. After all, this conjunction is in Aries – the sign of the “self” – and, therefore, we are all feeling that everything is happening to “me, myself and I.” Let’s face it; we’re taking both the world at large and the guy next door personally. The good news is that each and every one of us is being radically awakened to the expanding possibilities, power and potential of our own individual part in the bigger picture. What we think, what we do, what we choose, reverberates throughout the cosmos. And it actually has a log rhythmic effect upon the outcome. In other words, it’s time to break out of ruts and change those negatives into positives. Embrace the magnificent benevolence of Jupiter and the electric light of Uranus and become the change you want the world to be. Good luck!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
Revolutionary Uranus in Aries cracks open the cosmic door on a seven-year period of radical personal awakening and change. Pay attention to what’s happening to you right now. These are the seeds of harvest in years to come. Accept total responsibility for your current situation and relationships. It’s about self-empowerment and life improvement. Yes, you can!

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself in a sanctuary or an unusual, spiritual environment. Your soul is yearning for a deeper, cosmic experience and understanding of life. Take note of the people, messages and events that come your way. This is a fabulous time to make peace with the past, practice forgiveness and heal old wounds. Do your best.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Push and pull, breakthroughs and awakenings, restrictions and sorrow dance and dive in a self-motivated week of action and attraction. Cut the cake and light the candles on another revolution around the sun. World craziness is waxing along with your desire to make sense of it, but forget it. Focus instead on good friends, good food and doing the next right thing.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
You might as well accept the fact that your career and professional life is lining up for major change. Issues of authority and responsibility loom large upon the proverbial horizon. Are you willing to go it alone and be your own boss or does the lure of corporate benefits and company security outweigh the desire for freedom and independence? Think big.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
You may feel the desire to escape or travel abroad as jovial Jupiter and wildcat Uranus team up in your solar 9th house of expanded possibilities and glittering horizons. Recognize the power of inspiration and channel passion in positive, productive ways rather than surrender to anger, rage or self-pity. You are the queen or king of your kingdom, be a good one.
(Aug. 23-Sep.22)
If you’re feeling frustrated, confused, upset, restricted, crazy, powerless or insecure, don’t feel like the Lone Ranger. Humanity is spinning wildly out of control and the planets are colliding – not really – but the energies here on planet Earth are definitely intense. Rather than fall into deep depression, focus on gratitude. Count your blessings and see the light.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
You may find yourself scratching your head and feeling a bit daunted by the power and passion of your relationships. Is everyone crazy, or is it just the people with whom you partner? Breakups and breakthroughs come easily this week. The function is to get you and others out of ruts and in to positive, productive action. Be creative and cultivate joy.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Wake up, get up and rise to the occasion. Light rules and the days are getting longer. Warmer temperatures encourage outside activities and late night action. Focus on being the best you can be, whatever you do and wherever you are. The universe is calling for truth, awareness and enlightened personal change. The time is now, heed the call and do it right.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
You may feel uplifted or inspired as ruler Jupiter joins forces with electric Uranus in your solar 5th house of the heart. Creative juices are flowing; you may fall madly in love or spontaneously in lust. Whatever the manifestation, know the spark that flames the fire is spiritual, rather than physical or sexual. Open to the power and passion of spirit.

(Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
An unexpected change at home or within your family may suddenly open a variety of multi-faceted doors and opportunities for you and those closest to you. Or it may be an overwhelming change of heart that takes place entirely within. You are being cosmically encouraged to love and forgive yourself unconditionally, feel and heal. Be honest, kind and gentle.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The planetary partnership of your ruling planet, radical Uranus, with jovial Jupiter continues to awaken, encourage and expand your personal world with sudden change and uncharted territory. Live in the present but keep your eyes on the horizon. Travel is an option and one well worth exploring. Take care of business and responsibilities first, then go for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
There’s plenty of activity and responsibility to keep you busy these days – even if it’s self-imposed and self-directed – where does all the time go? Gemini delivers the last month of spring and a time for the Fish to swim downstream. Go with the flow and enjoy each and every moment of your precious life. Plant your garden, count your blessings and live in the now.
