Weekly Astrology for May 28, 2018 by Chris Flisher
The last few weeks have been breathtaking simply by virtue of the amount unexpected activity as Uranus enters in Taurus for the first time since 1935. This wildly unharnessed outer planet unleashes surprises in earthbound Taurus and we will witness these events for the next seven years. There will be times when the unanticipated factor becomes more dominant than others especially as conjunctions and oppositions to the planet and others occur. While in Taurus, the Uranian focus will likely be in the financial markets that are particularly stressed at this time. Astrology is based on the cyclical nature of history and if we review the past we see a very similar theme back 84 years ago. The Great Depression, World War II, the rise of fascism in Europe, and a general reordering of the very basic structure of then-modern societies was the predominant theme of the times. It is no small irony that we are staring at screens with the same type of news headlines scrolling across as in 1935. Of course, the time and place has changed and we are advanced in ways we could not have imagined in 1935 and yet, the theme is clearly present. Isolationism, white supremacy are all on the rise and we stare at a world that has disconcerting similarities to that time 84 years ago.
A full Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday sheds light on a situation bubbling up as Mars and Uranus get ready to square off against each other. While independently these planets have their own distinct characteristics and attributes, it is when they form a harsh angle to each other than the outcome can become sticky. Mars is aggressive and fiery, whereas Uranus is unpredictable and sporadic. What could possibly happen when a reckless, aggressive planet is in a challenging position to a planet that is restless, and rebellious? The answer may lie in the headlines. We are witnessing major earthbound stories as the crust of the earth is rapidly shifting due to underground pressures. Volcanoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters are likely under these skies and the temperment of Mars and Uranus combined can be that of a metaphorical kettle bubbling over with activity. While that specter may be ominous in and of itself, consider what it looks like when it happens without any forenotice.
