In Roman mythology Uranus was considered “The Great Awakener”, and to the Greeks he was the personification of heaven and “God of the Sky”. Of the myths, stories and legends that have existed about Uranus one suggests he was brought to life by Chaos, the first form of the universe, reflecting the often chaotic results of a trademark Uranus shakeup. Some key concepts associated with this planet include freedom, independence, shattering structure, spontaneous occurrences, rebellion, innovation and uniqueness. It is no surprise, therefore, that Uranus is associated with earthquakes, lightening, and electrical storms…clearly a force to be reckoned with.
Venus is one of the more well-known planets. If not for her astrological significance, then at least for her namesake as the goddess of beauty, love and art. Venus offers us clues about who and what we love, how we love, what brings us pleasure, what we think is beautiful, how we relate, what we value and appreciate, and what and who we attract to ourselves. It is said that Venus is to the Earth as the Soul is to the personality. So how do we invoke her wisdom to help us as individuals on the path to greater soul satisfaction? In a world where beauty and love have become so distorted (looking at you Valentine's Day), it is more important than ever.

Despite my well-honed problem solving skills, I’ve discovered a whole slew of problems that aren’t really meant to be solved. Instead they seem to be journeys that must be traveled. Often these are journeys of pain and loss. Thankfully there are a few life hacks that seem to lessen the suffering and speed up the process of transformation.
You have come to the shore. There are no instructions. ~ Rumi

The mantram for Aquarius is “Water of life am I, poured forth for thirsty humanity.” Last month we climbed the mountain of Capricorn. We metaphorically let the energy of our spiritual aspiration carry us to the mountaintop where we were bathed in the light of transformation. Now, in Aquarius we are asked to descend from the mountain and pour forth the waters of light and life into the world, to share our gifts, to distribute and radiate our light.
