“To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” Emily Dickinson
“When anger arises, think of the consequences.” Confucius
In general the planet Uranus holds sway in our time and it is a particularly strong influence in the sky this week – as it aligns with Mars and the Sun in a fractious way.
In the old texts they would caution to “expect the unexpected” when there is a strong Uranian influence. Uranus governs lightning and electricity. There can be a very erratic nature to Uranus – as there is with lightning strikes or electrical current running through the frayed cord of a lamp which unpredictably turns on and off. The potential for trouble is described in the lyrics of the Joni Mitchell song, “Electricity” – one verse being,
“We once loved together
And we floodlit that time
Input, output, electricity.
But the lines overloaded
And the sparks started flying
And the loose wires were
Lashing out at me.
She’s not going to fix it
Entering this week it bodes well to factor in more patience than usual as nerves can be frayed, tempers short and behavior impulsive – all of which can lead to a more accident prone time.
Mars will leave the sign of Cancer this week and enter the sign of Leo. The Sabian symbol for this time is,” A person is under emotional stress and blood rushes to their head.”
