Breakups, Shakeups and Uranus Transits

Uranus is the planet associated with liberation, change and freedom. Also known as “The Great Awakener” when Uranus transits a personal planet it changes its expression. I like to think of Uranus as the woke planet. A Uranus transit will revolutionize the planet it touches delivering many ah-ha moments. If you have been in a relationship for a long period or even a short period of time (See Michelle Williams) and it just hasn’t been working and Uranus makes a visit via square, conjunction or opposition to your natal Venus or natal 7th house you will have a strong urge to break free. This isn’t to say every Uranus/Venus transit ends in divorce; sometimes it results in an affair, an open marriage, a break or staying together but living apart. Uranus can be very unpredictable so expect the unexpected. One thing is for certain it will rearrange things in such a way that you cannot go back to what was before. The best way to work with Uranus is to allow things to unfold naturally and learn to go with the flow. It can be very difficult for the more willful and ridged types, particularly those that associate change with pain. The only time change is painful is when we hold on to old paradigms that no longer serve us. Let it go and let it flow, control after all is only an illusion of the ego.
Some divorces brought on by Uranus

Those with planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are currently undergoing changes brought on by Uranus entering Taurus where it will remain for the next 7 years.

If you have planets in 0-10 degrees of fixed signs you can expect changes from now until April 2021
If you have planets in 10-20 degrees of fixed signs you can expect changes from April 2021 until June April 2024
If you have planets in 20-29 degrees of fixed signs you can expect changes from June 2023 until April 2026

If you have heavy Uranus or Aquarius placements in your natal chart and/or do not fear change this energy may be quite familiar and comfortable for you. It is always necessary to take the entire chart into consideration.

Pluto Transiting 11th house I’ve got dreams to remember

I’m a firm believer we come into this world with certain gifts and talents that are eroded through time. Life’s harsh cruelties strip us of our essence; we lose our child like charm to societal restrictions, peer associations and parental molding.

I know I was born with the wish to be married and have children, what woman isn’t, but really it’s in my soul…well the marriage part. Children have often been negotiable, with Aquarius the natural ruler of the 11th house rising I have always considered adoption a lovely option. After all the 11th house is home to other people’s children.

As for my career choice I have Neptune-confusion- conjoining the 10th house cusp-career. Truth be told I have never wanted to be some sort of career woman. Like Melanie Griffith in Working Girl…oh hell no. As a child I use to “write” scripts to soap operas, that is what I dreamed of doing; somewhere that got lost, I became lost. I have natal Venus in Gemini in the 3rd house this gives me a natural affinity toward writing. I have a fiction piece I’m working on, currently up to Chapter 5 I think it is genius while simultaneously I wonder if I have the discipline it takes to see it through to the end. Remember I’m earth deficient. I dream of taking 3 months off from work to complete it but I just purchased my dream apartment and that comes equipped with a not so dreamy maintenance. Ha! No regrets though It’s like an oasis to me.

I recently came to the conclusion Pluto transiting the 11th house is quite possibly the most boring transit on the planet. I felt unmoved by it, I wondered if the reason is in part due to the fact that my natal Pluto is in the 8th house where it is strongest and it also natally touches my Sun, Moon and Venus. Then I read a quote regarding Pluto transiting the 11th house (sorry I don’t know who said it) about your dreams dying and you will birth new dreams. Pluto ruling complete transformation.

So here I’m September 16, 2012 widely in tuned to this Pluto transit, abundantly aware of dreams the way in which they manifest and yes dissipate.

Pluto transiting the 11th house is currently setting a blaze to prior dreams, in the early 2000s I went back to college for a degree in Hotel Management. After a trip to Las Vegas I abruptly quit my job, went back to school and after several maneuvers landed a job at my DREAM hotel. I recall saying to myself: if I could just get that job I would be so happy and magically they called and it is where I reside 7 years later. Without getting too much into my current situation in an attempt to avoid getting slapped with some defamatory lawsuit my dream hotel changed ownership several times and is more like a nightmare! There was a period employees were privy to paid in full vacations via raffle, car service rides home and big screen TVs and iPods were given out at Holiday parties. We ate filet mignon for lunch and most importantly everyone was joyous! That is not the way it is anymore, and I’m lucky to see a chicken salad sandwich with fresh mayo for lunch. This certainly is not the dream job it once was and I see all I hoped for slowly deteriorating. Okay not slowly but rather rapidly decaying.

I have this urge to abandon life as I know it in some sort of low budget version of Eat Love Pray but last time I checked I wasn’t an heiress or independently wealthy. So I come to work and attempt to do my best while working toward dream fulfillment on the side. Though most times I feel like a hamster in a cage, spinning in circles.

I have maintained throughout my life: the one with the most experiences wins! So my natal sun in the 5th house continues to take chances.

Recently I applied to be an extra on one of those Investigation Discovery Shows, Married to a Mobster, Love Kills…something like that. I wanted to portray one of those women but with limited dialog. Instead I was told I was being considered for a lead and to send in an audition tape, So I recited lines from Carly Corinthos character on General Hospital, quite frankly I sucked and I never heard from them. That’s ok; acting is not a dream of mine. The following day I registered at some casting company for extra work. We’ll see how far that goes.So far Ive landed several background positions on CSI New York, Law and Order SVU and Blue Bloods.

I have been scouring craigslist and to follow my passion and write horoscopes for a Magazine. Having landed one gig that remains a work in progress I continue my search for now while writing this astrological confession and continuing to take astrology classes.

I glance at my book occasionally, still hope for marriage and to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune….Pat Sayjack isn’t getting any younger neither is Vanna that dream is under certain time constraints.

I come to work each day, search for freelance writing jobs , wonder why I m not somewhere working for Marie Claire or Allure Magazine, I wonder where life will head to next. I mean just a few months ago I wanted to start an online bakery. Last week after watching Real Housewives of New Jersey Melissa had taken the kids to a child nail salon! Simply genius! I wonder the start up cost on something like that! xo

Saturn Transiting 8th House, Show Me The Money

Saturn entered my 8th house over a year ago and I cannot wait for him to make his way out! Having Pluto and Uranus in my natal 8th house I’m accustomed to sudden change, introspection, seeking the truth and depths of situations. But Saturn in 8th house squaring my Sun and opposing my Moon has been dreadful. Life has been difficult to say the very least. The 8th house rules death, other people’s money, sex not in a love affair -fun sort of way like the 5th house, but more of a plutonian type. It’s hidden, scandalous, and obsessive. They say where Saturn is placed there is karma to be worked off, needless to say I have been working my ass off. I’m not the same as I was before. I feel like an orange, peeling a layer and another layer and as I shed my skin I just long to get to the juicy part. The good part, a better part of me.

Some Lessons of Saturn in 8th house

The House of Other Peoples Money

Saturn Transiting the 8th house often indicates a lack of help in finances. It rules the money of other people whereas the 2nd house is the money you earn. Saturn transiting the 8th house gives you a feeling of having to do everything on your own. Feeling utterly overwhelmed. You can have enough money, but somehow it isn’t enough and you will find people seldom want to help you while Saturn is in your 8th house. I must admit money has never played a bigger part in my life than in this year. I have worked since I was 14; I have traveled to Europe throughout the Caribbean and across the US on my own merit, putting myself through college and saving up to purchase my own home. Natal Saturn in the 6th house indicates everything I acquire is via my own effort. To be frank I have little regard or respect for people who simply have things handed to them. That being said this year has been one obstacle after another, financial road blocks and major setbacks. I was approved for a mortgage, but denied by a condo board, I’ve been through lost applications, hidden fees, flip taxes oh my! It has taken a toll on my being and there have been many nights I have thrown myself a pity party. Why me? Why is this happening? Recently I met a depressed former love for drinks (he has Saturn transiting his 7th YIKES); I said you have the house, the cars, the children and I feel like I have nothing. He was quick to assure me that money doesn’t equate happiness and sometimes a “pretty picture” Is simply that. A picture not a reality. Saturn lesson number 1; all that glitters isn’t gold. This one is going to take a while.

Lessons of Saturn

The House of Sharing & Intimacy

Natal most of my planets fall below the horizon, the focus on my stuff (Moon in 2nd house), My way of thinking (Mars in the 3rd house) my neighbors (Venus in 3rd house), my house & my roots (Jupiter in 4th house), My love affairs & my creative abilities (Sun in 5th house) my job (Mercury in the 6th house) and my health habits (Saturn in 6th house). Me Me Me! Saturn transiting my 8th house has changed the way in which I see relationships. Making me realize in order for any relationship to work there has to be a 50/50 give and take. Thinking in terms of “us” not how will this affect me? With an Aries Moon it is always “me first”. It has completely gutted the way in which I relate to the people around me. Coming face to face with my own inadequacies, learning that people are not perfect. No one is perfect. After a series of events that occurred leaving me devastated I was forced to go to others for help, lean on others for support and assistance. I’m the type of person that prefers to handle things alone, I rarely ask for favors but that has simply not been the case the last year or so. As I have had to depend on others to pick me up and dust me off when the purchase of my home fell through and a 100 other things went wrong. I feel as though I’m stretching and growing inside, but as painful as it has been I believe at the end of this transit, I will view it as a cathartic process.

Lessons of Saturn

Obsessions, Dark Love, Sex

Saturn in the 8th house will bring you face to face with your inner fears, the things you deny, perhaps haven’t even admitted to yourself. If you’re generally possessive in love it will bring you face to face with a love you cannot possess. Controlling tendencies, Saturn in the 8th house will bring relationships beyond control. It will drag to the surface all that lies beneath, pulling out your heart and stomping on the very fragment of your being while doing so. One quote that comes to mind:

You will encounter people who will serve as mirrors, mirroring back to you all that you lack. Circumstances that bring out your worst tendencies. Its painful. But you can use these times to grow and build on them. Release old behaviors that no longer serve you.

Lessons of Saturn


Thankfully no one I know has died, growing up with Pluto in the 8th house I’m accustomed to those I love dying prematurely. I still have a year left. At this rate; fingers crossed. Perhaps more so I feel as though a part of me is passing away. There is the me before the Saturn transit blissfully unaware of so many things. I have come to know the darkest parts of me, what motivates me, what renders me helpless, what I yearn for. I feel the past far beneath me as I attempt to climb up from nothingness. It is the end of an era. That is the only way in which I can describe it. Funny enough unbeknownst to me my numerological year is Year number 9. It’s a year of completion and paying off karmic debts.

Saturn Lessons

Where you find Saturn, you will find Karmic Debts

They say Saturn Transiting your 8th house is a time to settle the Karmic Debt for the emotional choices you have made earlier in life. Am I paid up yet?? There is me BS and AS before Saturn and After Saturn transiting my 8th house. It has been painful and dark. I feel as though all I hoped for did not manifest. My dreams remain just that dreams. I have been hurt and I have been angry and above all I have experienced disappointment in love and in life. However I can see with 20/20 vision mistakes I have made. I’m learning the lessons of Saturn, to depend on people….but ah-ha be careful which people you depend on. No one is perfect. Love sometimes hurts and sometimes it’s beautiful. God willing you will be denied something or someone because someone or something GREATER is waiting. And most importantly I think I have learned that you have to live life in your own time, do things at your own pace and although I believe in fate something bigger than all of us are in charge. I have to give up my need to control everything. Breathe. Exhale. Look for the lessons because if you don’t get it the first time, it will come around a 2nd time. Forgive those that disappoint you because to wake up angry every day defeats YOU! Let go and let life take you wherever it decides. Saturn transiting your 8th house demands you let go above all else.
