Spark and Shock

Aries moves against resistance. The friction created ignites the spark to begin life.

At birth, the start of the astrological wheel, one enters the world alone. Defense and offense are immediately accessed in order to offset obstruction. Friction is sustained indefinitely and conflict is inevitable in social realms. 

The movement against resistance produces enough vitality to advance and survive the obstacles humans are confronted with until death. The Aries individual is the personification of this activity and stands out as a warrior. Those with Aries on the ascendant, or Mars, especially express this trait. Victorious battles come naturally.

As resistance firms, Aries becomes stronger. Muscles are built, tension increases, and energy accelerates.

Opponents get confused and confounded. If they remove the force the Aries goes away, yet the non-warriors try to fortify the resistance, and to no avail. The warrior becomes more potent.

Add Uranus.

Sense impressions, received by the moon, are transmitted to the brain to be interpreted and discharged into the body for appropriate reaction. This is accomplished through electrical circuits, a domain of Uranus.

The fire of Aries becomes shock with the addition of electrical Uranus. I think shocks happen continuously in living organisms. I presume they're inherent within the flow of electricity, in general.

Shocks are exciting. They awaken, enliven, and stimulate a state of high alert. And they are uncomfortable. It seems humans never quite get adjusted to the intense vibrations created. They make people jumpy. 

The impulse to experience freedom is a commonality among people. Mars and Uranus are injecting the charge, rattling and shaking creatures out of traps. 

I'm inclined to get out, myself. With or without these two.

Center Stage

The Leo loves himself. Ideally. 
And he loves to have countless eyes watching him love himself.

His expressions are grand, his demeanor regal, and his confidence is second only to his magnificent ego.

The sun rises and sets in his realm.

Thus the spotlight falls on him. The warmth and light attract other creatures. coupled with the uproar and abundant drama. He adores the admiration as much as the crowd admires him. Entire structures have been erected to accommodate the self loving Leo.

Rise and shine.

Giving Voice

Honesty is a trait associated with Sagittarius.

Ask a question, you get a straight answer.

In the beginning, as the wheel turns to Gemini, fact and fiction, are interchangeable. The reportage of Gemini contains many fabrications and distortions, all there to create enjoyable chatter. Like a baby discovering its voice, babble is everything.

Arriving at the opposite side in Sagittarius, truth becomes more pronounced. It contains information designed to upgrade perception and to conceptualize the universe. Questions about infinite power arise as the individual perceives the vast expanse beyond the self.

The laws of the land and those of the cosmos are studied. Thought and talk in these courts attempt to separate fact from fiction, while people prepare to govern successfully in Capricorn. The person wants to know what's what.

With Saturn in Sagittarius, honesty takes a serious turn. It's more like a requirement with Saturn's strict rule. It doesn't mean that lies and such disappear or even retreat. It means that the truth is more discernible. More available. And potentially preferable at times.

An astrological chart largely influenced by Uranus depicts an individual who is nervous, agitated and destructive. To the norm, that is.  And some other things.

The neurons of a Uranian are like high tension wires, buzzing, crackling, popping and drilling madly. To the uninitiated, they even appear to misfire, but there's an ultimate logic in the sequence, as Uranus urges the consciousness into new space.

The planet simply flipped its axis. Who knows when?

Uranus lives by its own laws. I guess the other planets don't mind. They get along quite well, it looks like to me, these characters.

Saturn's matrix is useful when first built, but there comes a time for the structure to be taken down in order to advance.
Uranus does a smashing job.

I find it interesting that the keywords for Uranus ruled Aquarius are "I know".
Yet the path to knowledge is through the wildly, oddly unknown. The certainty and security of Saturn are removed in order to expand the mental frontier. Aries is bold and aflame, which is where Uranus is now. Hot and electric. They're getting ready to part ways and there's a lot to cover.

I actually don't think Uranus is as disruptive as its reputation insists.
It stays in orbit.
