Welcome to Uranus in Aries. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan this morning are just one indication of the change-over from Pisces. (water, oceans, sensitivity...) into Aries, indicative of sudden changes and new starts. The rapid motion of Arian energy combined with sudden events brings up new ways of looking at what this new and unusual energy is about.
What I mean by this is, that while we can consider this event an introduction to the uncertain and unstable energy of Uranus in Aries, we can also see how the speed (Aries) of technology (Uranus) brings the news and information to us via internet, cell phone and other modern communication devices. Like a wall of water roaring in, the information can be overwhelming. We each need to process it for ourselves even while we are keenly aware of the impact on the whole. I have something running around in my head and it's this - "one for all and all for one..."
The excitement of new beginnings is another aspect of Uranus in the first sign of the zodiac. Wherever you have Aries in your birthchart is where you will experience this awakening of a fresh start now being a possibility. Take a minute to recall that sense of being on the threshold of something different, or the anticipation you felt at not knowing what is just around the corner that's been hanging over you for the last few months. Well, now you are experiencing a speeding up of insight or awareness of what it might be; not that you have the complete picture yet. It's just that we have clearly crossed into new territory and there's no more time to look back longingly. It's important to look ahead to the future and what you'd like to create.
It's also important to re-read what I wrote just yesterday about our thoughts and their power to create what comes from our minds. Stay well, replace negative thoughts with positive ones, and send loving prayers wherever they are needed. Many blessings to us all~
And... remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
