Dear Ohio Astrology,
All our lives we’ve been told to plan for the future and play by the rules. And now the rules seemed to have changed! Plans are up in smoke, my country is going crazy and I don’t even know if the person sitting next to me is male or female. What the heck is going on?
Sun/Moon in Taurus Society
Dear Sun/Moon in Taurus Society,
You are experiencing a seven-year Uranus transit which upsets the apple cart, so to speak. Uranus in Taurus creates shock waves through all of your finest habits and plans but for the purpose of awareness and enlightenment. Our ancestors provided us wisdom for life but do we really want to wash our clothes on a washboard? Do you want to talk to your friends only at night when a phone rings?
The Taurus suns in your group should be able to shift to new habits and plans. The Taurus moons might have more trouble because moon is where we do things for emotional comfort. For them, it’s probably best to calm them by saying things will return to “normal” as you guide them into understanding that there is no such thing as “normal.”
Uranus is a seven-year transit so when it moves into Gemini in July 2025 your society members should be able to create new habits and plans that last for a while. The world will still be in constant change, as it always is, but the people around will be air and fire energy busy and not paying attention.
Dear Ohio Astrology,
My Gemini cat won’t go to sleep. It started about a month ago. Will he ever go to sleep?
Gemini Cat Owner
Dear Gemini Cat Owner,
Mars entered Gemini about a month ago providing energy to Gemini sun as well as the other air signs (Libra and Aquarius). Unfortunately for you, Mars usually is in a sign for two months but will be in Gemini for seven because it goes retrograde (looks like it goes backwards). When Mars goes retrograde in October your mentally agile, flexible and fun Gemini cat may take a nap. When Mars moves into Cancer in April 2023 the cat may return to regular sleeping habits but will probably be very hungry. If you want an external barometer of Mars in Gemini, the 45th president has sun in Gemini. When he stops talking and sleeps, your cat may as well.
Dear Ohio Astrology,
The other day my boyfriend told me he was studying for an exam but I found him at a pub with another woman. I called my friend to talk to her about it and she said she was at Queen Elizabeth’s wake but then I saw her post her lamb and mint sauce dinner on Facebook. Why is everyone lying?
Jupiter in Pisces
Dear Jupiter in Pisces,
Jupiter in Pisces is a very loving, generous and compassionate placement. You need to remember that not everyone has that in his or her horoscopes. Neptune is in Pisces which gives you even more sensitivity and compassion but also is giving the world excessive media, drink, and drugs to escape the harshness of 3D reality.
The answer to your question is in the question – it’s more difficult to have privacy today than it was in the past. You sound too young to remember the day when you could pretend you weren’t home by not answering your phone. Today that excuse no longer works so you have to pretend that you were abducted by aliens and they took your phone. But you also have to be careful that you don’t leave digital clues during the time of your said abduction. So don’t be a sensitive Jupiter-in-Pisces. Your friends can lie to you or they can say “I have two girlfriends” or “I don’t feel like talking to you right now.” Which would you prefer?
Hey Ohio Astrology,
I don’t believe in this astrology crap. I’m an individual and the government is trying to take away my rights. What do you weirdos have to say about that?
Free Thinking Individual
Dear Free-Thinking Individual,
My first thought is that you have a rebellious Aquarius sun or you wouldn’t write at all. My second thought is that you have been reading Aquarius Ayn Rand.
Ohio Astrology, of course, has a lot to say about this. First, where did you get your ideas of individuality and rights but from the school system? Had you been born elsewhere you might have been taught and believed something else, been presented with a different idea of the afterlife and maybe even be using different eating instruments.
It’s ironic that all species have common characteristics but yet some are taught that humans are individuals with no connections to others of their species. Pluto transiting Capricorn from 2007 to 2023/4 is challenging our notions of authority and sovereignty and how we give our power to authority.
In early 2020, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were also in that sign and the governments of the world acted in sync – a freedom loving Aquarius ought to be scared by that. Saturn entered Aquarius in March 2020 when peoples of the world were told to physically isolate. When Saturn enters Pisces at the beginning of next year we will see the emotional results of that.
Astrology describes the characteristics of the human species. We all have the same horoscope but in different combinations. Like all species we fight. And like all species we can still exist on the same planet.
Dear Ohio Astrology,
The last two years have been really boring. Are we ever going to have fun again without constant worry about disease and death?
Fire and Air Club
Dear Fire and Air Club,
The constant worry about disease and death comes from generations of people who have Pluto and Uranus in Virgo which is obsessive/compulsive by nature.
The transiting planet energies are about to shift beginning in 2023. Pluto will move into air-sign Aquarius. A couple years later Uranus will move into air-sign Gemini and Neptune will move into fire-sign Aries.
The intense earth and water energies of today will “lighten up” into air and fire. It should be more fun for those the extroverts amongst us if we avoid becoming cyborgs in the process (Pluto in Aquarius).
Jupiter is currently transiting Aries so hopefully 2022 has been more fun than the past couple years. The universe is giving us a little break where we can start new things, as Aries likes to do. Aries likes starting things but not finishing them so find an earth sign for your club to create some continuity during the transition of energies.
