"It ain’t over yet. This is where your new life will overlap the old, the point at which new opportunities meet your unresolved issues. But next week it’s still all about where Aries falls in you horoscope, and why Saturn is the key.
Yes, big changes are coming. Options not yet revealed will open up. But let’s not make too many predictions about the entrance of Uranus into the sign of Taurus. The last time it happened Hitler made the swastika the national flag of Germany. At the same time first antibacterial medication was developed. And about 600 years earlier than that bubonic plague broke out, killing almost 50% of the population of Europe.
But there’s another reason why we shouldn’t go making too many fast predictions yet about the coming changes. Even though in the coming days and weeks, Chiron will enter Aries and Uranus will begin a seven-year transit of the sign of Taurus. The current transits of Uranus through Aries and Chiron through Pisces are still going to be operating it until early next year. We have to remember that it is at the departure at the end of a passage through a sign where the effect of a planet can be the strongest.
Of course it gets complicated, but even so, it is useful to know how these forces are operating. The big life changes you are making are grand indeed. One part of your life is over, and it takes quite a while to get accustomed to that idea that you have to let go and move to another level.
It can be a bit painful, sort of like giving birth to an elephant. You’re definitely on the brink. You know change is coming. You know it has to. You’re all geared up for it in some ways and even excited – in this terrifying sort of way. It’s on the edge of tomorrow, but is still very much today.
Oh this is maddening. If only it would happen already, whatever it is and stop this anticipation of not knowing. Like the moment between the flash and the shockwave. Or when the ocean drains away from the beach and you know that means tsunami, but the tsunami never happens. It’s a climax you are ready for that will propel you to the next phase of your existence and your evolution, whatever, but where is it already?
These are the transits of Chiron at the end of Pisces, at the same time that Uranus is about to leave Aries and enters Taurus, both changes will change your game completely.
The wheels that have been stuck in the mud will turn at last. But there’s a twist when both Uranus and Chiron change signs in the next few months, they will stop moving forward and backwards they will go.
This will last into early 2019. Chiron will head back into Pisces and Uranus will go back to the end of the Aries. Just to let you know that the move you are anticipating will not be total and immediate. It will still leave you biting your nails until early 2019, when both those bodies move into their new signs and forward you will go into the wild blue yonder.
There’s a purpose to all this. The back-and-forth actually gives you a chance to contemplate fully and decide on what and how you want to live the next part of your life. Take a good long time to answer your own questions: is this what you really want? Are you absolutely positively sure you want to go? Do you want to stay? Well, which is it?
You do have choices and options you didn’t know you had. Make them wisely, because they will mark the path of your life for at least seven years and that’s going to be it. So don’t be in a big stupid hurry just because you don’t like uncertainty, uncertainty is the name of the game.
It’s perfectly normal to see your whole life flashing before your eyes now. Whenever a slow-moving planetary body moves across the terminator line of the zodiac, it is natural to review your past and reevaluate your present as a way of moving toward the future. It’s a time to forgive all your trespassers and your own trespasses so you can better judge your progress, correct your mistakes and understand how all of your choices lead you to where you are going.
This is a major juncture of your life. So look back to your decisions over the past few years, and as just as passionately as possible, think carefully now how you want to write the next chapter. I know there is a tremendous urgency for you to move forward, but ironically, just as great is an absolutely paralyzing fear of what may be lying ahead if you make a mistake. One side of you is so over the whole thing, that you’re willing to grab your coat and hat, walk out the door from everything and say, “ciao baby!“ And never look back. That’s the planet Uranus leaving Aries.
But that’s not all there is. You still have emotional attachments – all those old things that keep your hands tied. These are the attachments from the past and deep connections that you have made, and it hurts like hell to turn your back on them and walk away, that’s the Chiron at the end of Pisces part of your mind. But both those bodies are leaving in April and May 2018. So what’s the big walk? Why keep harping on that?
Because they’re leaving and not leaving, that’s why.
They will both move retrograde during the year and come back for one final visit. It’s like when your ex moved out of your place, but conveniently leaves his golf clubs in your garage and his underwear in the top drawer of the dresser. In coming weeks we will touch upon the new positions of Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus, but always with the strong caveat to remain aware that the powerful retrogrades of those two bodies will keep some of your old issues cooking, until they are resolved and the case is finally closed early in 2019."
