An earthquake in Japan. A nuclear plant leaking radiation. Civil unrest in the lands of oil. Welcome to Uranus in Aries. Now you’re thinking, “Another astrologer predicts terrible events. That’s why I hate this stuff.” I get it. But remember, the energy of the planets and signs is not “good” or “bad.” It is what it is. If you’re going to play with nuclear energy, you’d better be very, very careful. And if the ground under your nuclear plant is unstable, you might want to think twice about what you’re doing. Uranus in Aries did not bring bad things to Japan. Japan and other nations are playing with energy that is very potent. The half-life of some of man’s radioactive waste is up to two million years! No planet or sign is responsible for this – man is. The transits of the planets represent energies acting on what currently exists. Nuclear plants in earthquake zones currently exist. Uranus in Aries is simply saying, what if I throw a sudden spark of Arian energy on that situation? Then what?
Uranus is the planet of awakening, sudden awakening. That awakening is moving into a fire sign saying the awakening will come through fiery energy, in impulsive and rash bursts. As I say again and again, this energy is in all of our charts depending on our particular time of birth. Uranus in Aries is transiting your chart. Where will you have sudden bursts of awakening? Have you built a nuclear reactor on a fault line in your life precipitating a dangerous “accident?” Or did you decide in the past to either build your nuclear reactor on stable ground or not build it at all? You, then, will not be facing this dangerous situation. Make sense?
Let’s take a look at Uranus in Aries in the charts of Ohio politicians and see how sudden, fiery energy will affect their planets. I don’t have the full horoscope for our Ohio politicos, so can talk only about the planetary aspects. I won’t know there “where” of the transit, such as “love life” or “home life” or “career.”
John Kasich, Governor – This transit will affect his communications. Kasich has already shown a tendency toward impulsive speech and it will probably get worse. The impulsive speech will arise from a sense of frustration. In the coming years, I see outright distortion of information, probably, again, from very frustrating circumstances.
John Boehner, Speaker of the House – This transit will affect his love and home life. The public/private tensions will increase.
Frank Jackson, Mayor of Cleveland – This transit will have multiple effects on this complicated man. Like Kasich, who shares a moon in Capricorn, there will be frustrations in person relations, especially with women. But the transit also provides some freedom and relief from Jackson’s sense that his early life was not fair. Jackson will also have unexpected sudden recognition for things accomplished in the past.
Michael Coleman, Mayor of Columbus – This transit does not affect Coleman as strongly as his fellow Ohio politicians. I think Coleman will stand back and wonder why those around him seem so crazy and out of control.
Mark Mallory, Mayor of Cincinnati – This transit will energize Mallory. Mallory will be filled with buzzing energy that makes him try new things and leap into the unknown. Mallory will have the energy to accomplish his missions, no matter how outlandish.
Kasich, Jackson and Boehner all have aspects involving the moon which represents emotions and women. This common thread makes me wonder if there will be a female politician or power broker involved in the lives of all three in the coming years.
