The Sun & Uranus are snuggled up today, creating both excitement & instability. While some folks love the electricity & dynamic energy of ⚡️Uranus⚡️, for others it can be quite destabilising.
Since Uranus entered Taurus last year (May-Sept) we started to get an incling of that which was up for overhaul. On a personal level relationships, ideologies, employment, finances, family dynamics all started to reveal the deeper rifts of core dissatisfaction.
Now that this transit is in full swing we’re staring into the mirror of chaos; we don’t have control & the more we feed that lie, the more complicated we make the simplicity of life.
What we DO have when we allow chaos into our consciousness is creative freedom. Without desperately trying to control the winds that blow through our lives, we can remember that we are the magic ~ that it’s not something to be attained & possessed ~ & it’s not something we can manufacture, only work with.
As Uranus is often associated with ⚡️lightning⚡️ & Taurus takes on an Earthy -of the body – resourceful shape, we can re-learn what it is to live WITH nature, an integral part of it, co-collaborating. When we become conduits for the energy that’s BUSTING to come through, we step back into our 💚heart centre💚 & release the stress of trying to be, criticising & controlling.
Depending on how invested we are we might resist the changes, but Uranus ultimately wants to free us from that which inhibits. In earthy Taurus it’s calling us to WAKE UP while still in the body, to dare to meet life with fresh, open eyes & to fully dance the dance that we are!
Where does Taurus land in your chart?!
Life is just one continuous transition. There are no breaks & not one single destination. Even the ‘breaks’ are stations reorienting us from one point to the next…to the next…
There’s a lot of activity in the sky this week that can stir up lots of feels & frustrations. There’s also the desire to make sense of the most recent Mercury Retrograde cloud that passed through & hung heavy.
Being at the halfway point of this years Eclipse Seasons we have lights illuminating the road both back & forth. When / if the heavy feels land, take them as a sign post for things that are amidst transition ~ we need to create space for the new to come in by acknowledging & releasing the old.
Control is an illusion that keeps us in stuck states, so denying ourselves direct contact with our vulnerabilities & sensitivity can only create frustrating road blocks. There’s no hurry & nowhere to go!

Resistance is futile, enjoy the ride.
This recent Mercury Rx cycle ended with the messenger snuggled up to mystical, nebulous Neptune. If retrograde times themselves aren’t enough to throw us off, sealing the deal with Neptune only intensified this.
The effects continuing this week have left many of us feeling cloudy & indecisive while lacking vitality & clear direction. Sound familiar? 🤔
It’s these moments, these potent astrological signatures, that are clear cosmic reminders that Capitalism is man-made & intrusive on our natural rhythms. The desire to achieve, to strive for survival is innate, but aligning our worth with ‘success’ & ‘progress’ is not. Why is it so hard to rest & DO nothing? How much did you push against this tide, only to feel more confused & dissatisfied? When we DO nothing, the only thing we can ‘do’ is just be. It’s in these precious moments that we can truly hear the messages.
If we lived in a society where we were encouraged to make our life’s work something we’re good at or enjoy, the very fabric of society would be different. We would ‘work’ because we enjoy it, because it’s fulfilling, because we’re contributing. We would ‘work’ to our abilities, not a stock standard that exhausts us & pits us against each other. We wouldn’t have to stop & create time to check in, we’d be an expression of the rhythm of life itself. The indoctrination that we need to work to eat, to survive, to feel worthy are the sharp teeth of capitalism that eat away at our vitality & take us away from what we’re here to share.
We’re not out of this shadow phase until April 17, so these learnings are still being filtered through. With Saturn & Pluto as watchdogs over the south node traveling through Capricorn, we’re shedding more than the ideologies of capitalism. We have to address our own fears, our own beliefs & support of systems that uphold the things that inevitably hurt us.
Neptune allows us to view the ideal, to quest back to source. While it might not change overnight, each choice we make alters the entire vibration of the Universe. How’s THAT for personal responsibility?
Although I haven’t watched it, the “does it spark joy?” question has filtered through. Like anyone listening to these Uranus in Taurus messages, I’m getting down, closer, to that which calls me, holds value & needs to go.
Where ever Taurus lands in your chart, you understand the desire to build roots, have comfort & long lasting material security. Uranus though, has other ideas & is forcing us to renegotiate our relationship to such things.
Taurus wants to possess, hoard & maintain; allow slow change over a long period of time. Uranus wants to disrupt the status quo, abruptly freeing us from that which inhibits. Trying to control something so dynamic in a fixed capacity can only lead to a shuddering of secure foundations.
Being a conduit means you allow things to pass through. Like powerlines transmitting electricity, the cables & the electricity are not one and the same, nor are they’re trying to be. Taurus is the container for the energy of Uranus over the next 7 years; challenging our ideas of what ‘enough’ is, forcing us to identify that which truly brings us joy based on what we value & not relying on what worked in the past. #freshandnew
To be surrounded by less distractions, both inside & out, requires leaning in to trust in a more acute way.
This trip home has walked me down so many memory lanes with friends, places, food & my eternal love: motorbikes! The fact that you physically can’t carry much stuff, that the wind washes you clean of anything stuck, that it’s you (& possibly one other) & the potential offered in an open road. Need I say more?!
This Uranus transit initiated itself last May. It’s underway, & will switch gears again on the next New Moon in Pisces. For those strongly rooted in their Taurean ways, I hope you can find your conduit shape so that you can be lead by the sparks that are illuminating your road forward. If personal earthquakes rumble & you’re aware of a need to control, right there is your diamond mine. Taurus is not interested in scratching the surface, we need to dig a lot deeper. Shedding the material has a deep emotional & spiritual component, too. Don’t deny yourself.
The road is open & all maps are out the window. Where will you go with such freedom?
Shout out to Sullo for lending me her bike & to Jessika Fancy for being numero uno co-pilot.
The waves that are lapping at our feet right now carry the energy of the eclipse undertow. There’s a purging occurring from the inside out. There are no “little things” this week, they’re pointers to the larger issues lurking below the surface. Don’t look away, & don’t be fooled into thinking you need to control it all.
I know a lot of folks who are sick right now, or tired & depleted. Old energy is resurfacing, exposed into the conscious light of day to be purged. The eclipse this week was wedged between boss lady Saturn & break-down-to-break-through Pluto; we have to release before we can rebuild.
Take note of what you’re being drawn toward, & what you’re being challenged to leave behind – no matter how subtle. When the internet breaks & there’s no external validation…when the poles actually do shift & all you’ve got is what you’ve developed in yourself – what are THOSE things? What are you here to contribute?
We’re deepening our relationship to ourselves so that we inturn show up more authentically in the world. Project yourself forward & ask yourself what you wish you had done & see if it’s on your current to-do list. No connection or circumstance is random. Who you are & what you do now is part of an intricate web system that wants to support you; be conscious of the choices you make now because those seeds will grow.
We are all these Sunflowers. We all have a physical manifestation that we move through the world with, and yet, there’s also a subtle vibration pouring from each of us at every moment.
THERE IS NO LADDER OF HIERARCHY IN CONSCIOUSNESS.
The psychic airs are so thick and heavy right now. It can feel so hard to push through the fear and sense of impending doom, wherever in the world we are. The more I sit in this heaviness, the more I’m drawn toward understanding consciousness. Not with the mind or intellect, in being.
Uranus in Taurus is offering us just this. Uranus is an agitator, an awakener, forever pushing us toward freedom. In this Taurus case, we’re being given the opportunity to free ourselves from habituation, from the limitation of the body and being tied to material concerns. That doesn’t mean we check out, stop giving a shit, stop wearing clothes and give away all our money (though you can if that’s your jam.)
It means something different for everyone, but the vehicle that gets us there is very simple: listen to your own needs, your own inner dialogue and have boundaries that shield you from being saturated by the outside noise. Make space for your divine sound to pour forth and change this dominant, fear-based narrative.
Taurus gets comfortable. It loves a groove…but grooves become ruts which become trenches that we find hard to dig ourselves out of. We’re all being uprooted. We’re all re-evaluating our worth and what we invest time, energy and money into. It doesn’t make sense that the structures that support us also undermine us. This change is destabilizing and necessary. Look to what you’re clinging to and what’s being challenged to change.
The noise in the world, on social media is SO. LOUD. It doesn’t matter if it’s from the left or the right, red or blue, Liberal – National – Labour – everyone’s yelling. Make space for your Sunflower sound. Plug in and let it out.
We all know stories of people staying in relationships “for the children,” and we can all likely relate to having things in relationships that represent “that thing” that keeps us attached, in therapy, processing, working for and even denying what is ACTUALLY going on.

Venus is now in the fierce, rising phase of her cycle and there’s a jittery, disruptive energy in the air as the veil thins.
Uranus is stirring up the sediment down below that one offered us security and safe footing. Maybe you thought you’d made it though Venus’s journey unscathed!? What we’ve let settle and what we’ve settled for is now being weighed on the irritation scale.
We have a choice this week about what we go forward with and what we acknowledge and let go of. What are the ties that bind you? Financial contracts, relationship agreements where we spend our money and time all reflect our values. As you’ve changed since then, how have these agreements shifted also?
If you’re thinking that someone will change if only they’d go to therapy, or understand this one concept, or change this certain behaviour, you’re likely flogging a dead horse and this irritation and uncertainty is highlighting the deception.
What has died needs to be re-named, re-defined and re-leased.
Endings come in many and varied packages and they all lead to the same outcome: new beginnings.
Rise and shine!
The mutable signs ~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ~ all represent the energy of the changing seasons.
There’s been an irritability in the air. Not of the Mars variety where we could blow our top. It’s based in the mutable energy of change that doesn’t let us settle.
Mutable signs remind us that change is necessary. Stagnation is not an option and remaining in the past lacks vitality. In such unpredictable and often volatile times, we seek the security of things unchanging. Change represents chaos, and chaos reminds us that we don’t have control. But chaos is from where life emerges. It’s the void that contains the all; where we come from and to where we all return.
Each Mutable sign follows a Fixed sign. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) represent the peak of a season. There is no denying in February that we’re in the depths of Winter in the Nth Hemisphere – and the height of Summer in the South.
Fixed energy is sure and stable. It’s the foundation stones upon which we build life. Mutable signs, however, transition us from this stability, simultaneously aware of what it’s emerging from and heading toward. Moving, changing, gathering information, mutability is never still, never stagnant. Always curious and of service.
Mutable signs gather the information we need to transition to the peak of our potential. They are the gate keepers to the Solstice and Equinox. They are the changing of the guard from one season to another. It is both receptive and dynamic.
A snake sheds its skin before it emerges anew. The energy of change can be uncomfortable because we can’t rest and we have no guarantee of what’s to come. We have to lean into trust and roll with the energy of now.
This particular mutable season is within the veil of a Venus Retrograde cycle. The energy of change is more potent because we’re being asked to look at what we’re going to leave behind in the Underworld. We will take a Phoenix journey down and through Scorpio’s lair. If you’re struggling against the winds of change right now, ask yourself what you’re holding onto and why. What is lingering from your past that’s draining your vitality?
There is endurance to mutable energy. It has the ability to adapt. To bend and not break. Take this tree wisdom with you though the Underwolrld. We’re all going together. No one is spared.

CAN YOU FEEL IT?!
The psychic airs are thick right now. Don’t deny your intuition. Don’t dilute your magic!
We’ve just slipped through the veil of the upcoming VENUS RETROGRADE cycle & the whispers are circling right in front of us! #scorpiorealness
With Saturn grinding to a hault this week, earthly reality can be challenging (to say the least), so keep those psychic – dream – messenger channels open to help guide the way.
We’re heading to the Underworld. Keep clear about what & who is going with you.
