Sun opposite Uranus
The Sun is the central principle of self. Uranus is the archetype that brings sudden revolution and change. An opposition is a hard aspect that places the energies at polar opposites. Sun opposite Uranus is exact on Saturday morning at 3:43 AM PDT. Later that day at 9:23 PM the Full Moon occurs including this Sun/Uranus opposition in its chart. Sun opposite Uranus brings to light the suppressed or blocked eccentricities and brilliance of the individual. This configuration is rebellious to the extreme, often willful and pig-headed, and frequently figures prominently in the charts of accidents and catastrophes. Sun opposite Uranus also is in the chart of Charlie Chaplin, who was born with the Sun in Aries and Uranus in Libra, the reserve signs of where it is today. Chaplin led an amazing and highly Uranian life. One birth time gives him a tight Moon/Uranus conjunction opposite the Sun, exactly the alignment in Saturday’s Full Moon. He went on the stage at age 5, ended up in workhouses with his brother when his mother was institutionalized, rose to fame and fortune, showing true artistic genius in his life and work, and was finally exiled from the US due to communist paranoia, and his political beliefs. With the Sun in Libra, the sign of partnerships and diplomacy, and Uranus in the polar opposite sign of Aries, the sign of individualism and brashness, we are confronting a challenge to societal norms versus maintaining balance. Be cautious this week. Know that if you forced to let something go, then you are better off without it even if you can’t see that now.
Other Major Aspects
Mercury meets up with Jupiter early Tuesday morning at 2:45 AM. This is expansive and may bring some bright ideas and optimism your way. Shortly thereafter, Venus trines Chiron at 5:16 AM for some healing of body image and sexuality. And mid-morning, at 10:03 AM Mars sextiles Neptune promoting compassion. Thursday afternoon at 2:00 PM, Mercury makes an argumentative square to Mars. Friday at 11:47 AM Mercury sextiles Saturn, a great aspect for organizing and a methodical mind. And finally Saturday, along with the Sun/Uranus opposition and the Full Moon, Mercury squares off with Pluto at 7:29 PM, bringing the danger of a nervous breakdown through overzealous mental activity. A good week to lie low and make it through.
Void Moon Periods
The first Void started this morning at 9:51 AM in the sign of Capricorn and continues until 11:33 PM when the Moon enters Aquarius. Capricorn Void Moon is good for reevaluating your ambitions and goals. Next up is Void Moon in Aquarius on Tuesday from 4:49 PM until Wednesday morning at 5:43 AM. Void Aquarius Moon is a great time to catch up with your friends, or review your current causes. The only other difficult Void is next Saturday after the Full Moon.
